I'm back. Haven't uploaded the pics yet, hopefully tonight.

But I got skewers, corn dog, bread bowls and Lilo & Stich breakfast. Didn't get a chance for any sweets, I was too stuffed from all the other things...LOL. I was only in the parks 2 days, wish it could have been more.

Just had to share that I was starving after reading this thread last night, so made a version of Baked Potato soup to try and satisfy my craving. It was really rich and very yummy!

Made this with real bacon and 2 % milk instead...

Lilo & Stich Aloha Breakfast - Paradise Pier Hotel

Sorry it took so long to get these posted....real life got in the way of DIS - hate when that happens.

We had a late ressie for Lilo & Stich, 11:40 am on Easter morning. They were serving until 2pm that day. I do not know if it was due to it being Easter or if they serve that late every day. This is always our strategy for character meals though. We open the parks, then just as it starts getting crowded, we've done many, many rides and we're ready to eat.

O'brien potatoes with onions and peppers - not sure what's up with this link...it comes and goes...just click on it if you can't see the image



Scrambled egg whites with mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes



Mickey pancakes, Mickey waffles, Chicken flautas (sorry its so dark, guess my flash didn't go off)




Bagels, cream cheese, steamed rice in the cooker to the left



Grilled salmon, scrambled eggs in the back



Danish, muffins, croisants - omelet station behind these





Pineapple scones, oatmeal, chicken strips, banana's foster french toast



Dry cereal and fruit - you had to ask for milk from your server



One side of the restaurant



We saw Lilo, Stitch, Pluto and Minnie.
I'm glad I tried this character meal, but honestly we will be going back to Goofy's Kitchen. The food (taste and selection), the service, the amount of characters, the set up of the restaurant is all better at Goofy's.

The character interaction improved late in our meal. But at the beginning the characters were getting mobbed. No one waited at their table and none of the servers or managers stepped in to let people know the characters would visit each table. My son was getting upset because he knows how it's supposed to work. But each time a character got close, kids would run up and grab their attention. Towards the end of our meal, the place was getting pretty empty so we got some extra time with everyone. There really wasn't much for them to do so they were playing around with everyone.

One nice touch is that I didn't mention it was my birthday, but I did have my birthday button on. Lilo saw it and grabbed a server to take our picture together. She then went and gathered a bunch of them to sing to me. I even got a Mickey shaped brownie with sprinkles and a candle.

Pacific Warf Cafe - Disney's California Adventure

This was my favorite meal this trip. I had the Shrimp Louie and it was sooo good. Also in the pic is a Red Trolley Ale from the Karl Strauss beer truck.




This is the example bowls they have on the counter. I believe in order they are SF Shrimp Louie, Sonoma Chicken & Apple, Newport Nicoise (Tuna) and the Salina Turkey Sandwich. The example salads show a lot of lettuce, but in reality there's not much lettuce. One person in front of me even complained that the chicken salad was not a true salad. They were expecting grilled chicken laying on lettuce, not cubed chicken in a mayonaise based dressing.


They didn't have any examples of the soup/chilli bowls. But they use the same size bread bowl and you can choose from chilli, clam chowder, corn chowder and brocoli cheese.

Also, you can ask for the entree to be served in a regular bowl and just get the bread in a bag. I like the sauce/soup to soak in to the bread so I had mine served in the bread, but still asked for a bag for my left over bread.

Yes it's in DCA. I'll update the post to include the park/hotel that each item is at.
Wow...you were quick, I updated the post because I realized I posted the same pic twice.

Bengal Barbeque - Disneyland

We almost got one of each skewer. I think the only one we didn't get was the spicy beef which I've already posted a pic of a few pages back.

Outback Vegetable Skewer - zuchini, mushroom, red onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, red potato, crook neck squash. I prefer my veggies a little more cooked than these were. They veggies were still crunchy.



Tiger Tails - bread sticks slightly grilled



Safari Skewer - asparagus spears wrapped in bacon - a must do for me on every trip



Bengal Beef Skewer - beef in a tangy Zulu sauce - don't ask me what Zulu sauce is, that's just what they called it, it wasn't exactly barbeque sauce, not terriyaki, but it was good, not spicy at all



Chieftan Chicken Skewer - chicken in a Polynesian sauce, sort of a terriyaki

Corn Dog Castle - Disney's California Adventure

Ok, I have come to the conclusion that the folks at the Corn Dog Castle just don't cook the corn dogs as well as the Red Wagon in Disneyland. I know you guys didn't like my hot link corn dog posted earlier. And your not going to be too happy with this one either. It's a regular corn dog, but it's still a bit dark. I really wanted to go back to DL to get a corn dog, but my son didn't want to leave DCA.

So, here you are, the corn dog


And the inside after taking a bite so you can see how much corn meal is around the dog

I'll be going back in May so let me know what else you all would like to see.
That trip will include a visit to Blue Bayou, so you can look forward to that.
Also I'll be sure to get a corn dog from the Red Wagon this time so we can all compare the 2 parks style.

LOL.... Hey that is the exact same rice cooker I have sitting on my counter. I am still deciding on whether I want to fork out 1500, and buy tickets to the Red Carpet showing. I have a trip in planning for next March, but trying to decide if I want to try and do a rushed one for the showing.
