Yes, do both! SAI has been on our "never again" list for awhile. I think I would be ready to give it another try but we enjoy Hacienda so much I can't make myself do it.

So after the storm and much needed drying/rest time, we hopped the bus to EPCOT. Since we missed going to the Kona Sushi bar, we headed over to Katsura Grill first for a Spicy Tuna Roll. Since we were using a QS credit we also got an iced green tea and dessert -Adzuki Strawberry ice cream.



The sushi was very tasty and hit the spot. I am so glad that we realized we like sushi last summer! Going to try to hit Kimonos in August. I really enjoyed the tea. I don't like sweet tea at all and this just had a hint of sweetness. Andrew loved the ice cream. I looked up Adzuki and it is a type of bean. The ice cream definitely had a different texture than other ice creams.

We stopped to watch a bit of the Guess Who ....



And then ended up at Sommerfest for a second meal. Bratwurst with sauerkraut, water and a pretzel. The pretzel was allowed as a dessert on the QS plan.



We get a bratwurst every trip. I only had a bite and then had most of the sauerkraut with 1/2 the pretzel. We had a nice bench by the lake and we could still hear the music so it was a really nice dinner.

Took the monorail to the MK for Wishes. Barb and I had texted back & forth and ended up meeting at Sleepy Hollow after the fireworks.

Here we are!



And one of the kids ...



We chatted for a bit and then it was time for Andrew to finally get to ride Space with FPs we picked up before Wishes. I ended up watching the Parade ...





I had never thought to watch the Parade from there! What a great place to watch!

I then waited for Andrew by Casey's expecting to spend the EMH in MK. But Andrew had hit a wall and was all but asleep on his feet so we headed out to the buses. Got back to the room and crashed at 1:30am.

That sushi looks soooooo good!!!!

Also, i love the dismeet pics!! Such a fun pic of the kids!!!

I just noticed the rain pictures. Wow, that rain is ridiculous. You really did help a balloon seller. That is soo funny! I can't believe that rain. That is sad that you didn't meet up at the Poly but at least you two already met. That gelato looks so good. Both flavors look awesome to me.

Yay, I popped over to catch up on your dining report at just the right time. I'm so glad we were able to meet up after all, Vicki. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip for me. And though we didn't get to do so over a tropical drink at the Poly, we do make up for it later.

Yes, we really did. She was so funny. Despite the apparent danger we maybe were in, we really had fun. Gelato was really nice. A definite treat at AoA!

That was about 3pm, yes. They do have mustard but Andrew forgot to grab some and I was way too lazy to go get it myself! (I was going a stellar bench saving job while he got the food!)

I've been craving pulled pork! That sandwich looks good. Were you standing right next to Sleepy Hollow to watch the parade?

Love the new reviews! So how were the pomme frittes at BOG? They look just like regular fries to me - not anything special!

Just caught up on your reviews. What a wicked storm that passed through. Glad you had fun anyway.

It's so awesome that you and your son share a love of Walt Disney World.

Yes, I was very happy to meet Barb. It doesn't snow often in London, right?

Yes. I actually sat on one of the stools most of the parade. That pulled pork was really tasty. I am actually making some tomorrow night for dinner but it probably won't be as good!

They were better than some of the other QS fries. Nice and crispy and piping hot when we got them. We didn't eat many as we were enjoying the sandwiches too much.

Yes, it definitely is. He won't admit it around home, but when we are there, he gets it for sure. I think he is even going thru a bit of the post-Disney blues this week.
