Next time I go to Yachtsman, I definitely want to get the cod or filet! They both look so good.

Great review of The Yatchsman! We actually had ADRs for that on our trip but had to cancel them and now I am so bummed that we did. I'll definitely have to add that on again for our next trip!

I'm so glad you had Oscar!! He's been our favorite server for 2 years and we'll continue to wait to sit in his section. I even took my mom there in March, and I wasn't sure he'd remember me with out my other half... but he did and promptly asked where he was! He's always a joy!! \

Glad you had a great time!!

LOVED the look of Yachtsman!

Your Hubby's starter looked amazing!

We have never been there either - might have to look into it.....

Your meal at Yachtsmen looked wonderful from start to finish.

Just caught up on your review - I love it! You've made me all the more eager to take a Disney cruise for my first, and now I'm considering trying to snag a Yachtsman reservation.... eep! Can't wait to read more from you!

Breakfast At Crystal Palace & Lunch At Typhoon Lagoon

Tuesday May 24th 2011

Some mornings the sound of an alarm clock ringing is a truly awful sound and on Tuesday the 24th of May when the bell sounded at 6am I dearly wanted to switch it off and roll back over

I had to remind myself that I didn’t have to get out of bed, jump in the car and spend the next hour and a half stuck in London traffic; I was is Disney World and my early morning call was for a breakfast date with Pooh

Even so it was with bleary eyes and weary feet that we stumbled out of the Wilderness Lodge and headed toward the boat dock

The sun was only just coming up and if there was ever any doubt in our minds that it wasn’t worth the early morning wake-up call then look at the view that greeted us at the boat dock



Sunrise At Wilderness Lodge

Shortly followed by this;



Main Street, Magic Kingdom, 7.40am

I skipped up Main Street like a giddy school girl and after snapping many, many photos we headed over to Crystal Palace to check in



Crystal Palace

Our ADR was for 8.05am and we were one of the first groups to be called forward

Soon after we were seated our server appeared with a very welcome jug of coffee and asked us if we would like some juice or other drinks

He also explained the route that the characters would take around the tables so that we would know when we had time to head to the buffet

After a quick caffeine fix we headed over to fill our plates



My First Plate

Everything was really very good, the fruit was very fresh, and I really had a craving for some cereal this morning so I really enjoyed this but the absolute winner was ‘Pooh’s Breakfast Casserole’ it was kind of like a Peach Cobbler and was a totally delicious and very indulgent breakfast dish; I may have gone back for more

For some reason I can’t seem to find a photo of DH breakfast
I think I may have been face down in a plate full of Pooh’s Breakfast Casserole when he returned from the buffet but I did note down what he ate

He had some scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and for some strange reason a hard boiled egg

He commented that everything was great apart from the bacon which was the same 'pretend' bacon that he had (not) enjoyed at Wilderness Lodge

Whilst we were waiting for more of the characters we had time to head back to the buffet again



My second plate – Puffed French Toast and Chocolate Mickey Waffle

I hadn’t tried a chocolate Mickey Waffle before so was curious to see what I thought, it was OK but not particularly full of chocolate flavour and I much prefer the regular Mickey Waffles.

The Puffed French Toast was good, it was basically a sugar donut and there is nothing wrong with that

You may notice a lack of protein on my two plates but hey, carbs are an essential requirement of any self-respecting commando theme park tourist

Here is DH's second plate



Puffed French Toast, Pancakes and Pooh’s Breakfast Casserole

DH was also a big fan of the Breakfast Casserole and really enjoyed his second plate carb-fest

The star of the show popped by to say ‘Hello’



We settled our bill and headed out just in time for rope drop and worked our way around the attractions whilst the crowds were still light

We decided to leave Magic Kingdom just before lunchtime but couldn’t resist picking up one of these on our way past Sleepy Hollow Refreshments



Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

We shared this between us and it was delicious!

A great use of a snack credit and more than enough for two to share, the cookies were fresh and the vanilla ice cream was wonderful

That afternoon we decided to head to Typhoon Lagoon and in between floating around the lazy river we grabbed some lunch from Typhoon Tillys

No photos of our late lunch as I didn’t take my camera to the Water Park with me

I picked up a Tuna Sandwich with Chips; not as good as the WL sandwich but I still thought it was pretty good for a quick snack at a Water Park

DH chose the Fish Basket with fries; he was really impressed with the fish, the batter was lovely and light and was very fresh

Neither of us wanted dessert so declined to order one rather than take something only to throw it away

It was a beautiful day and the sun was blazing so it was the perfect time to slap on the sunscreen and enjoy the water; we really enjoyed our time at TL but soon it was time to gather our belongings and head on out as we had an exciting night ahead

Coming Up Next ………….. Yee Ha! – It’s The Hoop Dee Doo Review

Isn't it wonderful that so many people have commented on Oscar - what a star

DH raved about the Filet, and the red wine sauce was wonderful according to him

Good thinking Joh!
It would be perfect for an adult only trip

That's the problem with ADRs, we are always booking then cancelling because we need to fit something else in

If we go back to YS we would 100% ask for Oscar again

We have an 8:05 ADR for CP too! I am so excited about it now! Staying at WL also love your pic of the SunRise from the dock. I was wondering if the boat ran early enough to take it for our breakfast ADR, now I know

Wow, you are doing the same trip
The boat to the Magic Kingdom only starts running one hour prior to park opening, so in our case it didn't start running until 8am as the park opened at 9am and we had an 8.05am ADR
The boat to the Contemporary starts running way before the MK boat.
It starts at around 6.30am so we hopped on that and then walked to MK from there (only a 5 min walk)
We left WL at around 6.45 and were standing outside MK at 7.10am
The CMs start letting you into MK at around 7.40am so we probably didn't need to get there as early as we did but it did mean we were first into the park

We love CP breakfast. The puffed french toast is my favourite. I was so excited to see chocolate Mickey waffles there last time but I did NOT like them at all. To me they tasted burnt and not very chocolatey

That picture from the boat dock is fantastic, so beautiful. Some of my very favourite holiday pictures were ones we took at the Wilderness Lodge.

Love the little speech bubble that your Mickey waffle has!

And that breakfast cobbler does sound really delicious. The picture of the sunrise is absolutely stunning!

Yummmm... I absolutely love going to the Crystal Palace for breakfast. I also tend to load up on the carbs when I go there, they are just too delicious to pass up! My family normally goes here every trip, but we decided to switch it up and try 1900 Park Fare next time.

Oh, and I love your photo of an empty Main Street! It sure pays to get there early.
