Day 3- September 3, 2008

Ah day 3...

I get up and weigh myself. How? I took my scale with me to WDW. I am paranoid about such things, and I weigh myself daily.

I'm a weirdo.

I'm up like 6 ounces, so I am happy with that number. Could be worse considering all that cheese from Day 2.

Day 3 is Animal Kingdom day, and we're exhausted from Day 2, so we sort of sleep in and have breakfast at the ASMu food court.

It's insanely crowded! It always feels like all ASMu guests decided to eat at the same time or something. They have a lot of lines open, so we don't have to wait very long.

We (by we I mean, I) decided to have what we had at Sunshine Seasons- the bacon, egg, and cheese croissant. Again, we decide to share because it will be lunch time soon, and we are planning to eat at Flametree BBQ. We both decide to avoid cheese this day since the gift shop doesn't sell Metamucil or Exlax... TMI, I know, but we're all friends by now.

Here's the picture of our breakfast- we got a diet coke and a bottle of water to take to the parks:



Yes, it's the same picture from Sunshine Seasons, but it looked very similar.

Taste: 6 (a bit cold compared to the one at SS)
Originality: 4
Service: 5

Total: 15/30

Cost:
1 CS
Cash Cost: $11.00

Up next- Flametree BBQ!

Continuing with Day 3...

We go to the Animal Kingdom and we run around doing fun stuff, and for lunch we end up at Flametree BBQ.

Now, I am a Texas girl. I have had BBQ many times, and I love it. So yummy, so smoky, so filling...Flametree was none of that.

Well, folks, here's the review of the worse meal of our entire trip.

We're hungry, and we're waiting in line at Flametree BBQ. I take this time to gawk over people's plates to try and decide what to order. I am torn between the fruit plate (no protein though), the chicken, or the BBQ sandwich. Daniel is debating between pork or beef bbq sandwich. Finally, we get up to the front and order.

I ended up choosing the chicken plate with baked beans and corn muffin, with a diet coke, and key lime pie:





Daniel chose the pulled pork sandwich, beans, water, and for dessert a frozen lemonade:







May I take this moment to comment on the cardboard straws? I think it's genius! Great way to help the environment and protect the various animals wandering around the park.

Okay, back to the food.

My chicken was awful! The outside was greasy (I don't eat the skin, but it's still really greasy), and it's dry. The inside portion of the chicken is very cold, and you can't complain to the restaurant because they have a sign up about their "smoking technique" or something. I didn't even want to bother. The BBQ sauce tastes like straight up vinegar. My beans are super hard and super cold. The highlight of my entree was the corn muffin. It was mighty tasty, and I thought it was impressive for counter service cornbread.

I ask Daniel how his entree is:

Me: "How is your sandwich?"

Daniel: "I don't think it's pork."

Me: "Did they give you the turkey sandwich by mistake?" <trying to chew my rubber chicken>

Daniel: "Um...no."

Me: "Hhhmm..." <wash down with diet coke>

Daniel: "I think it's a combination of potted meat and Spam."

Me: "Seriously?" <my stomach turns a little>

Daniel: "Yeah, wanna try it?"

Me: "I'll pass." <debates on whether or not to throw something at Daniel for asking>

Daniel: "Can I have your beans?"

Me: "Take 'em"

Now I know many people love Flametree BBQ, but we will not go back. We have plenty of good BBQ in our neck of the woods, so next time we will skip this for sure.

My key lime pie was good, nothing outstanding, and Daniel thought the frozen lemonade was too sweet, but overall okay. However, Daniel did really like the beans, but I think this is only because of the fiber content...TMI again, I know. I don't hold back, people. I tell it like it is.


Daniel's Score:

Taste: 2
Originality: 0
Service: 5

7/30


Monica's Score:
Taste: 2
Originality: 3 (points for the corn muffin)
Service: 6

11/30

Cost:
2 CS credits
Cash Cost: $32.00 (talk about overpriced...go to WPE!)

Lovin' your reviews so far. (subscribed). Sorry about the bad experience at FlameTree. I've never tried that one before... and I think I'll be avoiding it! (Some of your pictures aren't showing up in the last post though. The only thing I can see is the frozen lemonade and, I dunno, Daniel. Looks pretty good to me.)

Lovin' your report!

We went to WDW for our honeymoon 17 years ago, but that was back in the day before free dining.

Many a meal was a Mickey bar. LOL

(What can I say, we were poor. His parents paid for our off site hotel and tickets. We paid for gas and food. Oy.)

Love the dual reports. My dh isn't that interested in reporting on food, just eating it. LOL

Looking forward to the rest!

I was starting to think it was just us, we didn't like Flame tree at all.

DHs!

Congratulations..you two look like you are having a great time.
Love the reviews
, but my fav. bit is when you say that Daniel could have looked at the menus too.
I thought my DH was the only one who wanted nothing to do with planning...until we get there!!

We couldn't have afforded to go without free dining and staying at a value resort. Ahhhh, to be young and poor.

I may make Daniel plan and make all ADRs when we go next year (anniversary trip, and hopefully with free dining!), but then again we'd probably eat at Tutto everyday, so I may rethink that a bit.
