Thanks Jessica! Plaza Restaurant is one of our favorite burger and sandwich places in MK. Those fries! And if you are into ice-cream anything, that's a great place to dine.

Wonderful updates, Brenda.

First, Mark is feeling better. He goes to the doctor tomorrow for his follow up visit and I'm anxious to hear what they have to say.

Your dinner at Crew's Cup looks wonderful. I did not know they served food there. I'll have to remember that since we are spending part of our time at the Boardwalk in September.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Crystal Palace as you know. I can't go on our annual trip wthout having the puffed french toast.

I think the Mayor has a thing for you, my dear.

Mark and I were thinking of doing the Illuminations Cruise in September. Maybe we could do it together the night we are having dinner together at Via Napoli? We will have to talk or email prior to my ADR date.

Lovely pictures of you and Em with the characters.

I have been trying to decide if I should book a breakfast at Crystal Palace for my family's June trip. After seeing your pictures, it's official. I AM making ADRs for CP! So many things looked so delicious!

Great CP review and superb job getting those buffet shots
Mmm, I think I would be wheeled out of the restaurant in some kind of sugar induced trance with so many yummy options

That's a very extensive menu at Crew's Cup, even without the YSH offerings!! I was unimpressed with the limited selection at Territory Lounge, and I have no idea if they offer Artist Point's food, as our waitress totally ignored us. I wish it was better, as I'm looking for a place to go for a quick, light bite before the Wishes Dessert Party in September! (We're about 90% we want to book this.)

I'll have to remember the Crew's Cup Lounge when we at at the BC next month. We have three evenings without a dinner ADR, so it could be a good option. The menu for the food booths at the Flower and Garden Show just came out, and we are excited about eating our way around the World Showcase. And there may be a drink or two, too.

Where is the event entrance for MK? We signed up for the Keys to the Kingdom Tour and need to be there early.

A lot of the deluxe lounges have some pretty decent food offerings...nice to know!

I think the Mayor needs to seriously check in for therapy......just sayin'.

I love the Crew Cup lounge, I'm not sure however if you can order from YSH there. I know you can only order certain things from AP at TL and it depends on how busy AP is. Since YSH is almost always busy I imagine it is likely not possible. I actually think the Crew Cup Lounge's food is cooked in the Captains Grill kitchen and not the YSH kitchen..

I'm also a CP fan but due to the extreme high number of carbs at the meal Hunter is not... Want to ditch the men for a girls CP breakfast in April/May? Lol

Aw to your last morning breakfast. It's always sad to be leaving Disney World! The Crystal Palace breakfast looks delicious though, and your character pictures are adorable. I've been to CP for breakfast but I was supposed to have my first pre-park opening breakfast earlier this month for my nephew's birthday trip. Unfortunately, we elected to cancel it, due to a ridiculously late dinner at Ohana the night before and being too tired. Maybe next time!

I saw your FB update for Mark. Glad to know the therapy starts soon. I wish him well.

I didn't know about food at Crew's Cup until I saw someone post something on the DISboards about it. I learn a lot here! I think we'll be at BW in Sept too... I have us currently booked at AKL and BW. That could change.

We would love to share a boat and do the Illuminations cruise. That would be the ultimate KatMark evening!! Let's chat more about that great idea.

So glad I could be a [positive] influence! CP is not short on options and then adorable characters on top of that, you practically can't go wrong. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you Linda. I think there is a period of sluggishness after eating breakfast at CP. They need to issue warnings that until your blood sugar levels return to normal use caution.

Ah man! That's right, your YSH experience was sucky. For a quick bite this seems like a good option. I think most of the lounges at the resorts offer at least a limited menu.

I think when we did the Wishes dessert party I made that my meal. Oh my gosh, so many things I wanted to try.

You just reminded me that I need to check the menus for F&G, I have a few blank spots for lunches that would be great to fill with the booths. Since I've not been to F&W this is the next best thing.

Ha ha! So you are saying that you'll be eating AND drinking around WS!

Ah, there you confirmed. Yes, I agree, at least the ones that I have tried like CC, TL, Victoria Falls, and Belle Vue (? BW's lounge I think only has breakfast items.)

Yeah, I already signed him up! He was tame that last day.

I think you are right Paula, I think it depends on how busy the restaurant is. At Territory Lounge we were told we could get the full menu but this last visit nothing was said... didn't ask either. At CC we didn't ask. The kitchen being with CG makes sense too.

Hmmmm... Michael would want CP because they have salmon and eggs, the only things he really likes for breakfast. I'd have to tell him that I'm doing a character breakfast with you just so I don't lie!

Hi Juanita. Ahhh those late night dinners can mess with you the next day. Pre-park open breakfasts are great if you are up at the crack of dawn. You're right, there's always next time.

Like Em, I was not a fan of the cinnamon roll at Gaston's. Mine lacked that ooey-gooey quality that I loved so much about the ones from Main Street Bakery. Enjoyed your CP breakfast review. We've only done lunch there and breakfast is on my list!

All caught up once again. Crews Cup looks like a nice option for dinner if you don't have a reservation (kind of last minute sort of thing).

Crystal Palace breakfast is always a winner, as far as I'm concerned

Haha, nice for Dean and Linda to present their plates for you to take a picture of. I've been training everyone well over the years too.

My Mom totally takes those condiment bottles! She's obsessed with them. If they come to the table, lookout. She's putting them in her purse.

We have never done the Illuminations cruise before. It just never comes up in conversation. LOL. It looks awesome though!

Ooohhh, the OCD side of me wants to do the same thing with those cups!

That bacon was so depressed that it was so limp that it felt it needed to just end it all.

Wow....we are a lot alike! I hate mixing cold with hot and sweet with savory at buffets too! However, sometimes I will, because I don't want to look like "that person" going back and forth from the buffet.

Crystal Palace is one of my favorite breakfasts, I enjoy it so much. I think the food is great, the character interaction is always fun and we LOVE to get in the park early.

I'm glad your experience was great, too!

Hopefully the mayor wasn't as handsy as he usually is with you
