Al caught up. Breakfast at WCC looks great! If we ever stay at WL again, I'll make sure it's on the list. I'm almost embarrassed to say that I love cheese goo on nachos and fries. It's how DH convinces me to go to sporting events occasionally. I don't say no to nachos!

I have never been involved in one of your dining reviews and all I have to say is, where have I been? And why did I not see them before?

Wonderful photos, fantastic food choices that I can't wait to devour and seriously, your writing stature is fantastic! Cannot wait for the future dining reviews!!! And, I have to add that I love dining reviews that include pictures of adult libations

On that note, with your review of WCC, my family and I might consider trying it again. We went there for dinner one night in 2007 and had an "ok" time. The server didn't seem to want to really be there that night and the food was luke warm, at best. Your breakfast Mickey waffle looked like heaven and I so have a hankering for pecan butter now

Can't wait for the next report!!

Brenda, now I know why I never see anyone going in Tortuga Tavern.

Hope there were better meals to come.

I honestly don't think I have ever seen TT open for lunch when I've been at Magic Kingdom - sounds like I am not missing much

Oh and to answer your question, no, I've never eaten breakfast at WCC - looking forward to meeting you, Em and Barb there in December

We were conned with the "amazing" description! Good thing we've very forgiving people!

We will gladly accept the shame of our failure to plan if it prevents one person from eating this rubbish!!

Hi Jill! No worries! I'm glad you are here! Thanks for joining! Nothing here will be as amazing as your V&A dinner but we'll try to make it interesting!

Perhaps the cashier gal needs to expand her dining horizons. I know taste is all relative but for us.... ick!

Apps coming up shortly.

That's so funny that you can be bribed with cheese goo! I have had the cheese goo on chili cheese (goo) fries at Cosmic Rays but it was piled with chili so it wasn't so bad. I'm a hypocrite now!

Welcome and I'm glad that I've been "discovered" makes me practically glow. Or is that the wine? So you're a drinker eh? Seriously though, I am glad that you are here and joining. Welcome!

I can say that if the server is having an off night at WCC it WILL be noticeable. They can't fake it there. Breakfast may be more low key so for us it is a great option. AND two words.. MICKEY WAFFLES!

Hi Rachel! ha ha! Maybe the other items are good at TT. I dunno.

I'm mentally going through our food list and I think all is well from here on out.

I've been to EU and I can honestly say that you win the prize for most disappointing meal of the two. I owe my DH a Biergarten meal after ditching that for EU in 2006... he's still waiting to collect!

So not only did I have no plan but lousy timing because they happened to be open! Gosh!

Ahhh I hope you like WCC since I've hyped it up so much.

Hi there! Thank you for the kind compliments and for joining!! I'm very glad that you are here.

As for November, Do it! I'll share my personal DR method... take pictures of food, eat, repeat!

Day 2: August 17th - Evening Club Level Appetizers



After checking into AKL for our 3 night stay, since we were already up on the CL floor and we hadn’t consoled ourselves with any Mickey bars following our lunch we were curious to see what they were setting our starting at 5pm.

The lounge had filled up with quite a few people and we were busy with some issues we had with checking into our room since their card key machine was down. They did welcome me to AKL with a mimosa so I was completely happy.

Mimosa

Once we checked out the CL evening offerings we decided to sample a few things. And by a few, I mean one of everything. Well, not quite but don’t judge me by my 3 plates!



1. Plate in Foreground: Five Counties Cheddar Cheese and assorted pita chips with White Bean Hummus

2. Plate with the pastry triangles: Spinach & Paneer Cheese Samsoas

3. Mini plate in back: Chicken Bastilla

I’m glad to say that I tried two new dishes; the chicken bastilla (Moroccan) and the spinach and paneer cheese samsoas (Indian and Middle Eastern). The bastilla had a phyllo dough cup filled with seasoned chicken that had a savory sweet flavor with an almond topping. The flavor and consistence reminded me of baklava.

The samsoas were fried puffs of dough that were filled with spinach and paneer cheese which is similar to queso fresco a soft mild cheese.
They were both very good. The heat lamp had kept them perfectly warm and they were not too soggy.



The kitchen had a hidden window right where the hot apps were located so every few minutes you would see the window open and a CM replenish the hot apps. I became obsessed with trying to get a photo of said window open with an arm sticking out but it seemed that every time there was someone standing there in my line of sight for the photo. It would have been very rude of me to tell them to step aside so I can squeeze off a photo so I stifled the urge…. Until.. there got it!!



Other CL offerings including the refrigerated beverage case:





Wine choices:










Next Up: Jiko dinner

Brenda, what a very nice spread.

I love that you caught the woman in the window.

One of these days, Mark and I will splurge and try CL. I just worry that we'll ALWAYS be eating. Wait, I did that last month when we were there...I swear I never stopped eating (and my pants told me that when I got home).

Mmm, is there anything better than a welcome mimosa? The CL offerings look lovely, they really seem to offer a nice variety. Love that you were able to (photographically) capture the woman behind the wall, LOL.

Looking forward to your Jiko review!

First the drink orders, Bloody Mary extra spicy and extra olives for me and a lemonade for Em. Here’s where I learned the word “spicy” is relative. Spicy for me means something completely different than spicy for Pedro the bar tender. (Perhaps a stereotype reference isn’t the best but you KWIM? It’s about frame of reference.) After toasting to a fabulous girl trip I took one sip of my drink and my throat was ON FIRE!! What did they do throw some habanero chili into that puppy?? Water…. I need water…. It certainly wasn’t lacking on spice. I think my eyes were watering a bit and anyone looking on may have thought I was crying over my drink! Lovely picture, no?




I'm sorry, while I really enjoy the photos and dining reviews, I just find the Pedro comment unnecessary and offensive Oh and just an FYI if you ever eat or drink spicy, drink of choice should be milk, not water to put out the fire.
