Us, Food, Drink, Friends, and Sledge (Hijack update Disney and Napa Rose 12/16)

OK! We are back from our best trip ever! Why was it the best you might ask?! Well, some could say it was ignoring reservations that I was up at 4am to make months before so that we could continue to sample EVERY Food booth item. It could have been the fact we kept falling into the same Ditch over and over again! Maybe it was the two Wine View Lounges and all the classes that were all very worth the price to us. We think it's because of all this and the fact that we met some amazing people that will turn into life long friends - and we found a new trip mascot a few days in! So come along for the pictorial journey with us. Well, at least what we can post!

Our 1st restaurant review will be for Kouzzina - we arrived the night before and had a few booth items, some Ditch time(that we will include at a later date) and a drink with friends but we will start here!

We had a 7:30am ADR that we missed due to the fact that I was sleeping at 7:30am in Orlando is 4:30am in San Diego. We made it by 8 am and they were happy to see us, sat us right away and only had 6 other tables filled the whole time we were in the place.
We were told to order the Sangria but we were out till 1 am having a drink and a great get to know you the night before so we went for the pressed pot coffee!


Oh wonderful Coffee - help me start the day!


We went into this vacation saying we would try and split items (so we could eat more - I mean try more) so we picked the fruit plate that came with greek yogurt!

last healthy thing we will eat!




I have to say this was wonderful! The yogurt was like breakfast cheese and the fruit was FRESH! Fruit at Disney is much like the Disney bacon - Never crispy and never satisfying! Not this ,it was perfect! Sweet, juicy and not a 4 day old banana to be seen! ()


Then we had the Stacked Kouzzina Breakfast-Two Poached Eggs, Kalamata Olive Toast, Artichoke Spread, and Sweet Potato Hash with choice of Bacon or Chicken Sausage


This was better then I had hoped! Eggs poached perfect, Olive toast Fantastic, Artichoke was garlicky enough to scare away Dracula and the hash was SO GOOD! We opted for the chicken sausage and our server told us it was 95% fat-free, not that I care on vacation but it was amazing to me that it tasted as good as it did being low in fat!

We were so happy to meet Sue and John at the 2nd Wine "cage" but wished we could have met you too!
It was a variety show -

I want to "squee" because I didn't have to follow a Brenda pimpage to find this.

The Kouzzina breakfast looked fabulous! I may have to hit that in December.

WOO HOOTY HOO!!!

I cannot wait to see all of your pictures and read your reviews and re-live the best trip evah!

AND ... I figured out why we received 12 inches of rain here in Stinktown this October: whenever the most interesting man in the world thinks sad thoughts it rains. He was obviously upset that we all had to leave WDW.

PS. Now you is pimped!

You try. You fail. You try. You fail. But the only true failure is when you stop trying.
