I could definitely see myself going again at like 11 with friends like a "we're hungry and want a drink" type thing but I don't think I'd go again for a meal. Everything tastes better after a couple drinks.

The tip thing, the server could avoid the whole awkward thing and just not ask you know? The last time I got that was right when the tips were dropped from the plan and the couple servers that did mention it were more like "Just so you're aware the dining plan recently changed and we did remove the gratuity and appetizers from it" It came across more apologetic like they were sorry to have to bring it up at all while this was "I'm telling you this so you better give me something."

oh and as a side note I forgot to add what the costs and all that fun was to my review, I'll do it later though, I'm exhausted!

No Toys at the Table! and What's a cheesemonger?

OK so....I have to admit I was a total failure at this point and didn't take any pictures at 50's Prime Time!! I was too distracted!

I had an 8:10 ADR but ended up heading over early and was seated at 7:44pm to be exact. It was way back in a corner, a kitchen I'd never seen before but it ended up being a great location. Sara was my, really our, server. I say our because the couple next to me and I started talking like we'd known each other for years, then when Sara would sit down at my table and jibber with us it was really like a family. The couple was from New Orleans and Sara gave them "sass" (their word) for not having thicker accents. I wouldn't say she was super in character but the was so friendly and funny and made us feel so at home I can't fault her for only minor shananigans.

Even though I was on deluxe dining, I skipped the appetizer. Nothing there really appeals to me and I can't tell you how sad I am that I missed them bringing back the old cheese appetizer!! I ended up with a coke (typical for me) and the fried chicken.

The last time I was there I had the steak and it was just a bad cut, lots of connective tissue. That is turning into an ongoing theme with 50's and me. The chicken...*le sigh* it's so frustrating to me. I like the way it tastes, I like the breading but I had to dissect the pieces to get at the good stuff. Its like what's on it is good, there's just not a lot of it. Maybe that's why the serving is huge. I'm conflicted on the rating here, so I'm not even going to give it one.

I didn't touch the greens and had been so distracted talking to my new family from NOLA, I forgot to ask for my potatoes sans gravy. I asked for plain ones rather sheepishly and Sara said something like "oh man..you better hope Mom's in a good mood tonight" The new ones were only just warm, but still pretty good. I could do without the skins in them though, its just a texture preference. I'd give them a .

For dessert I had the apple cobbler, inspired by my new family as well. I got it "a la modey" (Little Miss Sunshine anyone?) I loved the ice cream and the apple part, but the topping isn't what I'm used to. I come from the crumbly topping world, not the oatmeal crispy one. It wasn't bad but it'd be so much better with "the real" topping. Cobbler =

It was such a nice meal in atmosphere though, it made me very optimistic about the whole solo trip thing. Sometimes it takes me a while to warm up to people but once I do just try to get me to shut up, but I really didn't run into that for the whole trip. The restaurant wasn't super busy so Sara sat with us for probably a total of 15 minutes on and off. We talked about working for Disney, what all the cousins did for a living and this is where I had to explain exactly what a cheese monger is. Then I got to give her a short education on what the cheese that is supposed to be in the new "old" appetizer actually is. It was the most fun meal I had. So overall, even though the food wasn't outstanding, I still say .

The breakdown- drink- $2.99, meal- $16.99, dessert- $7.49- tax $1.79= $29.26.

I found at this point I probably wasn't going to make the "best" (boy this is a " heavy post) use of the deluxe plan. I'd even used a snack credit on a drink earlier in the day. THE SCANDAL!! but rest assured I didn't use it on a water. I haven't sunk that low. I think in the future I'd pay OOP for 50's, assuming I'm on a plan, and save the credit for something else or for a signature.

Next- That's some darn fancy french toast.

We love 50PTD but have been hearing so not so good reviews lately. I hope their food returns to the yummy goodness it use to be. And that some of the servers will get back to the loud obnoxious relatives of my memory. They don't seem to be as in character any more?

Love your 50PT reviews! I'm sorry your chicken wasn't what you expected. I appreciate your optimism though.

That's some darn fancy french toast!!

I'm getting a little out of order here. I've been trying to keep this and my full trip report in sync but they're not that out of whack and I figured I'd throw you guys a bone and post another review.

There's really not much to tell of my morning prior to breakfast so don't feel like you're missing anything here.

I had a 9:10am ADR at Captains Grille at the Yacht Club. My last trip I had a 1 br villa at OKW and we just had breakfast in the room. I really missed going to breakfast so some delicious breakfast food was definitely a priority when I made my reservations this time around. After poking around looking at menus, I thought Captain's Grille would be a nice choice, lots of stuff on the main menu plus that buffet option. Normally I know what I'm going to order when I made a reservation so knowing that this place had a lot of options I'd like was a nice change. I got to Yacht Club very quicky (I took a cab) Seems I had a warped view of how far things were from each other and didn't realize the Epcot area resorts were so close to Pop. I checked in and was seated at 8:50 in a mostly empty restaurant.

The waitress was very friendly but a bit confusing when describing things. She asked if I was on the dining plan and the way she explained it sounded like the buffet was my only option but what she really meant was most dining plan users opted for the buffet. On the ride over I had thought I'd go for the buffet but I just wasn't hungry enough to justify it. Yeah I could have just made one trip, or taken a small amount of whatever I wanted but it just wasn't gonna happen.

Instead I decided on the french toast with "lavender infused strawberry compote and white chocolate ganache". It was supposed to come with bacon or sausage but I asked if I could have the captain's potatoes instead.



The potatoes were...odd. I love a seasoned roasted potato with the mushy inside and crispy outside. These weren't like that. Instead these were just mushy and not in a fluffy way but in a greasy way and there was a lot of onions with them. I wasn't a fan but part of that might also be in part that I didn't read or ask for a description of them first. I'm sure this will be a very subjective rating but for me they were a The french toast was interesting to say the least. I love french toast that's mushy on the inside (yeah I'm a texture person if you can't tell by this review ) This fit the bill for that quirk. It was the toppings that kind of killed it for me. The white chocolate ganache was just very sweet, no real taste of white chocolate to it. It was lost in everything, you wouldn't have even noticed it was missing. The strawberry compote was also a little odd. It was definitely real strawberries but it almost tasted like there was extra strawberry flavoring added to it, almost artificial. I'm not sure if that was the influence of the lavender or what but it was a little boggling. It wasn't bad, but I did walk away a little confused by that dish. I'll give it a

All in all, while the food was a bit off the mark for my taste I enjoyed the atmosphere and service, and I'm optimistic about the rest of the menu. I'd say it's a solid . I'd go again but I'd order something different.

Editing to add the recap: Drink $2.49, Meal $11.99, tax $.95 total= $15.43

Well fellow foodies, I figured I should make my way back here. Maybe I was inspired because I'm totally craving a funnel cake right now, even though this little review doesn't include a funnel cake

http://disboards.com/showpost.php?p=...9&postcount=15 This is where we're at with the trip itself.

Onto one of my favorite things, Casey's Corner!!! Now I'd get to have some real corn dog nuggets! I was so jazzed when I got there. With what I'd planned with other meals and ADRs I had planned, I paid for this OOP which ended up being a mistake (for reasons which we will discuss 3 reviews from now, sorry to make you wait!)

I practically skipped up to the counter and ordered my drink, my precious nuggets and fries.



Now this is what I'd been waiting for! Real cornbread batter, hot dogs that weren't hard to bite through. Fries that were both crispy and soft, salty and just the right amount of greasy . I was a very happy camper. I've never had anything else at Casey's so I really can only recommend it if you want to board the train of nugget love. I consider this a solid It's so silly but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do right?

My out of pocket cost for a large Sprite, corn dog nuggets and fries came to $10.10. I can't give you a breakdown because I apparently didn't save the receipt.

Next up: Magical stars and "oh, that's my butter knife"

Hey, we're all kids in the MK. And what kid doesn't love corn dogs?

I don't like the sound of that ominous 'paying OOP was a mistake', though.

It won't be the next update just fyi. I have 2 reviews to get through before I get to this particular story. I will tease you bit and say there's a delicious silver lining.

mmmm, love those corn dog nuggets! Although I can't wait to give my sister a hard time because she made us run all over Animal Kingdom until we found where they sold them. I honestly didn't know they were also at Casey's and I'm sure she didn't know either.

Magical stars and "oh that's my butter knife"

I was a little concerned how long it would take to get to GF for my dinner at Narcoossee so I left MK a bit earlier than I needed to. On the bright side, I saw that the boat to GF was on it's way in so I opted for that (a first time ride) rather than the Monorail.

Now, for anyone who saw any of my previous plans and posts about my ADRs (you know, because you should remember what I had planned at every step of the way), you should be saying "but wait! Didn't you have Artist Point booked for this night?" Well, you'd be correct in that. I did have AP booked for a long time and it TYPICALLY is one of my favorite restaurants. As I did the typical disboard behavior of checking and rechecking menus, I noticed some changes I wasn't too jazzed about. I'd be thinking I'd like to try the porkbelly appetizer that was on the menu, then that went away. Then they went and monkeyed with the buffalo entree (again) and that was just the last straw. It was turning into "Why do I want to go and have to make concessions and substitutions to be happy? What else is out there?" So I poked around the other signature menus and landed on Narcoossee. I'd always been able to find something for my picky self to eat on the menu but AP held that buffalo over my head and always won out. Not this time though and I managed to score an ADR I think 2 or 3 weeks out, I know it was pretty close to trip time.

I'd told a friend of mine I was going and she goes "NO TSHIRTS!" and told me I needed to at least wear something a little nice.. I knew I could technically wear a tshirt but I ended up wearing the plain tank top I'd had on all day and threw a light weight cardigan over it and I will say, I did feel a bit more like I fit in. I checked in a bit early and was seated a bit early which was fine with me because I was hoping I could kind of "rush" the meal so I could get back to MK to get my party on. I knew it'd be a longer meal but it ended up being a bit longer than I figured.

There weren't many people seated when I got there, but it got busier by the time it got dark (I'm sure people looking to see Hallowishes)

After being seated I thought to myself "Self, you deserve a drink." So I started out with a water, a coke, and my very first official Disney alcoholic beverage, a Magical Star. Holy crap...I love those darn things. Fruity and sweet and multicolored goodness but not too much of anything, it's honestly very refreshing! I took a video of it on my phone and sent it to my friends to rub it in .




For an appetizer I decided to go for the cheese plate. Nothing else was calling to me as it was mostly seafood and I don't do that.



I was familiar with 2 of these cheeses from work, and truth be told, I typically don't eat a lot of cheese. I'm around it too much to enjoy it anymore and just a little bit satisfies my taste for it. Starting from the left, the cheeses were Pleasant Ridge Reserve, Mt Tam triple cream, Humboldt Fog, Petit Agour and Roaring 40's blue. The pairings, again from left to right, were honey comb, candy cane figs, some kind of glazed nut and serrano ham. To the far right was a thin toast. Pleasant Ridge is too much like gruyere for my tastes, even with the pairings I'm not a fan. The Mt Tam is fabulous, very creamy and delicious with the nuts and the honey. Humboldt Fog can be ok but this was a very young wheel. What I normally have in at work is further along than this picture shows and it just wasn't appealing to me. The Petit Agour was the big surprised here. I can't figure out quite how but it's a little spicy. Not sharp mind you, but peppery. I don't eat blue cheese so I can't tell you what the Roaring 40's was like. The server did say the figs were "the best the chef has ever tasted" but honestly, I thought they were very meh. I've had plenty of figs before but these were pretty bland. I would never pay out of pocket for a cheese plate but considering this was "included" I was pretty happy with it. I'll say its a and a half. It's a good mix of cheeses, lots of different tastes but if I found something else that interested me on the menu, I wouldn't have a problem passing this up to try something new.

Now that I'm looking at the pictures, I realized I forgot to talk about the bread! I had such high hopes. It was hot and fluffy and smelled great. It tasted pretty good too BUT it was so hard to eat in that I had crumbs all over me and its like they cut it into pieces but don't cut through the bottom crust so since it's so soft to begin with you smush your fingers through the bread trying to break a piece off the loaf.

For my entree, I opted for the filet mignon. I wasn't into the sides it came with (and honestly I can't even remember what they were now) so I asked for the roasted potatoes from another dish and was told "No". I was a little stunned by that as it's never been an issue before. The reasoning was "well the chefs only make so many of them and each plate gets a certain amount so we have to save them for people who get that dish". Now granted, I understand kitchens do make a certain amount of food based on estimated business but I refuse to believe they don't account for substitutions and accidents. What if someone had knocked over an order that those potatoes? Would it really be "oops, sorry! You've met your potatoe quota already so you can't have any more" It was jarring to say the least. The server then asked if mashed potatoes would be ok. I really wasn't going to cause a fuss over this and I dig mashed potatoes so I said that'd be fine.



This did come stacked up on each other but in my food lust I almost started eating before I took a picture, so just picture everything stacked up ok?

I ordered my steak medium rare and it was perfection. Cooked right, thick and juicy, and tender as all get out. The steak knife that I didn't even notice was there til half way through was totally unnecessary. The butter knife was more than enough to cut through it. The potatoes on the other hand... I felt shafted. They weren't normal potatoes, as it turned out they were mashed boniatos which are a white sweet potato. Not a huge issue but they aren't the same. These were almost sugary sweet and it was like.. Ok bear with me here. Have you ever picked up a drink, say a water thinking it was something else, like Sprite? And for that split second it doesn't just taste wrong, it tastes gross? Then since it's not what you really wanted it to be you deal with it but it's just not right? Yeah, it was like that. I'm not a spinach fan, or really even a veggie fan so I didn't taste the spinach. The steak was absolutely a and the potatoes I'll say were but don't go into them thinking they taste like a normal potato.

For dessert I opted for the baked chocolate mousse.



This was really good but very rich, and a bit heavy after the meal. I don't know what the cookie type thingy sticking out of it was, but it was good and I actually used it as a spoon for a few bites. The caramel sauce with it had bourbon in it and it was waaaaaay too strong for me. I was glad it came on the side otherwise I wouldn't have been able to eat it. About half way through I gave up knowing I still had a lot of walking around to do and I wouldn't be able to do it if I ate any more.

This meal ended up being over 2 hours long. I thought I was giving clear signals to the server and it felt rude to say "let's move it honey". It was really the only time to fit a signature in though, and I'd imagine I would have spent about equal time at AP even if the meal had been shorter just with the added travel. It wasn't worth it to me to change my whole plan to move meals around to spend more time at the Halloween party. I'm very glad I tried this place and would definitely try it again, but on a night where I didn't have plans afterward. The great potato switcharoo was kind of lame but I can't say it ruined my night. So all in all, and a half.

App $16, Entree $45, Dessert $10, drink $2.99, OOP drink $10.50, tax $5.50, grand total $90.73.

Next up, I finally meet some Buffalonians!

I finally meet some Buffalonians

If you're reading my trip report, you'll know that my plan of having a slightly later breakfast so I could sleep in were for naught. As I got to Grand Floridian Cafe (yet another new restaurant for me) I was starting to feel the effects of not getting good sleep. It took me a full minute of standing in the lobby to realize I'd walked right past the restaurant and I had to back track.

This review gets it's title for a reason. Any other time I've been to the World, I've at some point run into people from the WNY area. I'd been peeking at nametags and whatnot but it wasn't until GFC that I found them. The hostess, lo and behold had a Buffalo name tag! and that wasn't all...her husband also worked there so I got 2 Buffalonians in mere minutes. Yeah, that excited me which is kind of sad but we're an odd people and it pleases us to know others have escaped and lived to tell the tale.

I have to say, GFC is a gorgeous little place. It looks fussy and prissy but really it's more bright and cheery, and it reminds me of a bit of Crystal Palace. It was virtually empty though, I only saw 3 other tables occupied at the time. My waitress was very friendly and the food come really quickly, probably because it was so empty at the time.

I opted for french toast again, with bacon. I wish they included eggs though, same thing with Captains Grille. I mean, I know I could order them separately but a)I don't really want to pay for them, and b) it just seems unnatural not to include them.



The french toast was just how I like it, crispy on the outside and mushy on the inside. Even the waitress knew what I meant when I tried to describe this to her so I'm glad I'm not the only one that likes it like that. The bacon was also good, crispy but not burnt and not too salty. Even for as simple a breakfast as it was, I'll still say because sometimes simple is hard to do correctly.

So yeah, very short review here but...stay tuned because the next one is the one that makes me feel shameful and dirty.

Next up, Dragons and why I'm a failure at the dining plan.

The hostess, lo and behold had a Buffalo name tag! and that wasn't all...her husband also worked there so I got 2 Buffalonians in mere minutes. Yeah, that excited me which is kind of sad but we're an odd people and it pleases us to know others have escaped and lived to tell the tale.
This post made me laugh this morning! I "escaped" Buffalo 15 years ago but still get excited to meet folks from WNY! There are a lot of us out there, wandering around in different spots. I still get up to Buffalo in the summers to visit family--I miss the mild summers, the food, the community, the food... Are you in the city or in a suburb? I last lived in Williamsville, but have family all around.

I'm enjoying following along on your DR. You have me anticipating your next post with some concern....what could make you feel shameful and dirty? (I can imagine some pretty crazy stuff...but not at WDW!!!)

Hope everything is OK with you!
