Pete was really glad to be feeling better, because we were headed to Epcot that day, and that was the park that he was really looking forward to.

Les Chefs de France

Pete and I had an ADR for Les Chefs de France for lunch. And the best part was that Pete was actually feeling well enough to go! We checked in around 15 minutes early, and we were seated right at our ADR time.

We started with some French bread. It came with nearly frozen butter packets that we impossible to spread, but the bread itself was delicious.



Pete had Cassolette d'escargots de Bourgogne au beurre persille for his appetizer.



This was burgundian escargots baked in parsley and garlic butter. He really enjoyed these, but said that he would probably never order anything like them again.

For his entree, he had the Crepe Florentine.



It was a large crepe filled with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and bechamel sauce. He thought this was just alright, and didn't eat that much of it. His appetite wasn't back to his usual, and he wanted to save room for dessert.

He had the fraisier sur coulis de framboise, sorbet fraise.



It was strawberry and cream cake, raspberry sauce, and strawberry sorbet. This was definitely his favorite part of the meal. This actually convinced him that we'll need to return to WDW sometime soon just so he can have this again.

I had Soupe A l oignon Gratinee (French onion soup topped with Gruyere cheese).



This was so, so good. I had no idea French onion soup could be so delicious.

I had the croque monsieur. I subbed fries for the salad that it normally comes with.



Everything about this was delicious. The was a huge pile of fries under the sandwich. Despite how much I wanted to finish all of this, there was just no way that I could if I wanted to have dessert (and who doesn't want dessert?).

For dessert I had Mousse au chocolat.



The mousse part was wonderful. It had a rich chocolate flavor. The little cake piece that came with it was very dry, and I didn't eat it.

During dessert, this guy came around:




Pete and I both loved Les Chefs. We definitely will go back on our next trip.

Glad to have you reading my DR! The baguette was really good. I probably ate so much of it that I had trouble with my sandwich.

Nine Dragons

Pete and I had an ADR at Nine Dragons for dinner. We got hungry about an hour earlier than our ADR time, so we checked to see if we could be seated earlier. They seated us immediately. The tables were really close together, and I felt like we were practically sitting with another couple because our tables were only a couple of inches apart.

We decided to get the General Tso's chicken dumplings for our appetizer. This appetizer took the place of 2 appetizers on the DxDP.





The dumplings were steamed and served with a dish of General Tso's sauce. The waiter also brought over a bottle of soy sauce, and told me that I should probably use it, because the red sauce would be too spicy for me and told Pete to enjoy the General Tso's sauce. It was weird. Pete actually ended up using the soy sauce, because the other sauce was sitting well with his stomach. I thought the General Tso's sauce was great, and I ended up eating more than my share of dumplings.

Pete ordered the Peppery Shrimp for his meal.



The shrimp were served with spinach noodles. Pete mostly ate the shrimp. The noodles were very garlicky with a little bit of pepper flavor. Pete didn't think the noodles were sitting well with his stomach either, so he gave them to me. I love garlic, so I was in heaven. I could have eaten nothing but those noodles and been extremely happy.

I ordered the honey sesame chicken.



This was served with rice. The sauce was sweet, but a little bland. It could have used just a little spice, I think. Overall, it was really good, and it went well with spinach noodles.

There was really nothing on the dessert menu that appealed to me, but Pete wanted to get the caramel ginger ice cream.



I tried a little, and there was way too much ginger flavor for me. Pete ate a few bites, then decided that he agreed with me.

We would definitely go back to Nine Dragons again, but we'd skip dessert.


I still wanted dessert, we made a quick trip to the French bakery. I had a sacristain, which is puff pastry dough with chocolate chips and an icing drizzle. This was delicious (much better than the caramel ginger ice cream).

Gaston's Tavern

The next morning, we were headed to MK for extra magic hours at 7. We enjoyed some of the attractions in New Fantasyland, then decided that it was time for breakfast, so we made our way over to Gaston's Tavern.

I really loved the detail in the theming.







We each ordered a cinnamon roll and we shared a LeFou's brew.





The cinnamon rolls were good, but there was not anywhere close to enough icing. Pete thought the maple glaze tasted more like caramel, but he still seemed to like it well enough. I couldn't really taste the maple glaze at all. The LeFou's Brew (frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and mango-passion fruit foam) was good for the first few sips, but then it was way too sweet. I think the marshmallow flavor is what ruined it for me.

Glad to have to following along! Fortunately for both of us, the actual too sick to do anything but lay in bed part of being sick only lasted a day or so for each of us. Our appetites and my sense of taste were both off for a few days afterward, but we were still able to have plenty of fun.

We managed to make the best of the time that we weren't sick, and I think we got a little lucky with the timing, because we were both sick on the best possible days, considering our plans (not that there's a good day to be sick on vacation).

Casey's Corner

Pete and I didn't have an ADR for lunch, but we were considering trying to walk up to Kona Cafe. Then Pete told me that he really wasn't hungry, and he really didn't want to go to a TS restaurant and waste a lot of food. We were leaving MK for the afternoon to see the Christmas decorations at some of the MK resorts, so we stopped at Casey's Corner on the way out.

I ordered the corn dog nuggets and fries, and Pete didn't want anything.







The corn dog nuggets were good. The breading wasn't as think as I thought it would be. The fries were standard Disney fries. What made this meal so delicious for me was the cheese sauce. Is there anything better than fries covered in cheese? After watching me eat a few bites, Pete decided that he would have some, too. He ended up eating nearly all of my lunch, so I went back and got some more fries.

Be Our Guest (Part 1)

Pete and I had a dinner ADR at Be Our Guest before MVMCP. There was a huge line of people at check in all trying to get in that night. Everyone was being turned away, unless they had tickets to MVMCP, in which case they could get in during the beginning of the party.

We waited about 10 minutes after checking in to be seated. Our waitress was April. We were seated in the ballroom. The tables were close together, but not as close as the tables were at Nine Dragons. It was suprisingly dark in the ballroom, and I had a really hard time getting my camera to take decent pictures. Sorry for the bad quality in some of them.



We were brought a basket of rolls shortly after we ordered our meals.



I ordered the French Onion soup.



The cheese on top was great, but the rest of the soup was very bland. The soup at Les Chefs was much better. I probably wouldn't order the soup at BoG again.

Pete ordered the garden salad.



He said it was just a run of the mill salad. He didn't eat very much of it.

I had the rotisserie cornish hen for my entree.



I subbed the au gratin macaroni for the fingerling potatoes. The chicken was well flavored, although a little unevenly seasoned. The macaroni was very good. It had a little bit of garlic flavor to it, which complemented it very nicely.

Pete ordered the pan seared salmon on leek fondue.



The salmon was served with saffron crushed potatoes. Pete really liked the salmon, but didn't eat very much of it. He didn't care for the potatoes, but he couldn't really point out why.


BoG Dessert and MVMCP to follow soon.

Be Our Guest and Wishes Dessert Party

Our waitress brought the dessert cart around.



I ordered the triple chocolate cupcake.



This satisfied my chocolate craving nicely. The only problem was that it was impossible to get the cupcake wrapper off. I ended up digging the cake out with my fork. The process was far more difficult than it should have been, but it was definitely worth it.

Pete ordered the lemon meringue cupcake.



Pete didn't give much of an opinion on this. He said that he was too full for dessert, but ate all of it anyway, so he must have liked it.

Our waitress brought us out the Grey Stuff because we were celebrating our anniversary.



The grey stuff is cookies and cream mousse. I really enjoyed it, but there really wasn't much to split between 2 people.

We posed for a picture with the Beast on the way out.




We had a reservation for the dessert party during MVMCP. We were a little late getting there, because we weren't paying attention and got stuck on the other side of the parade. We were still pretty full from dinner, so we each only got a small plate.



This was my plate. I didn't really care for the cheesecake. The apple tart and the peanut butter chocolate tart were really good. I don't think that I ate much of the brownie.



This was Pete's plate. He didn't offer much of an opinion on anything, but said that the dessert with all the berries was his favorite.



We would definitely go to BoG again. I would for sure get the au gratin macaroni with whatever I ordered. Pete wants to try some of the different cream puffs. I'm not sure if we'd go to the dessert party again, but the location was very nice for fireworks viewing.

Tusker House (Part 1)

Pete and I had a pre-park opening breakfast at Tusker House the day after MVMCP. We were seated about 5 minutes after we checked in.

The room with the buffet:

Tusker House (Part 2)

This was my first plate:


The slice of ham that I got was really fatty. It was gross. The rest of the food was really good. The donut was a Krispy Kreme. I had ham and cheese frittata, scrambled eggs, and tater tots. They were all good, but next time I would skip the scrambled eggs and just get the frittata.

Pete's first plate:


Pete managed to get a slice of ham without any fat, and he loved it. He was a huge fan of the mustard sauce. He didn't comment on much else, but he ate all of it.

My second plate:


I got a new piece of ham, and it was great. The cheese blintz was not very good, but the apple topping was really good.

Pete's second plate:



Our waiter wasn't the greatest. After dropping off our drinks, he didn't come back again until he gave us the check. When he did drop off our drinks, he made a bunch of weird comments about what we were eating and what that meant about our personalities. It was really strange. Other than the bad service, we both enjoyed our breakfast here, and we would definitely go back.
