I am sure you won't be disapointed! with my huge breakfast, I got a freshly baked blueberry muffin that I was able to take with me for a snack later!
the peppermint fudge is to die for!! and so is the candy cane bark, it's a white chocolate type candy base with the crushed up candy cane in it, harder than the fudge. I plan on bringing some of both home to seal up with my new food vacume sealer for a little taste of Disney Christmas through out the year!

Thanks, Mikayla, for posting all those great pictures! I think the Snowman shortbread cookies are adorable (not to self: add snowman cookie on to list with gingerbread man, cinnmon roll, peppermint fudge & ice cream, etc.) The cinnamon roll looks just as scrumptious as I remember it to be from when I had it, so I must get another one! The gingerbread man with Mouse ears looks slightly different than he looked last year. I can't tell if they made him shorter or softened his edges a bit, but he looks different. I will still get one, though! And I want to see if they have any peppermint cupcakes lurking around!

The peppermint bark is sold in a bunch of places around DLR - in Marceline's, I not only saw the fresher bark behind the counter, but whole gift boxes, small and large, of it on the shelves. They must make a ton of it daily!

I did a full write-up on my blog Famished L.A., so stop by for the full blow by blow of White Water Snacks. But I'll give you guys a summary of things.

White Water Snacks
Disney's Grand Californian Hotel

Char-Broiled Chicken Sandwich

This had a juicy piece of chicken, a little spice from an ortega chili, and a creaminess from the guacamole which was more avocado then guacamole. This was good and I'd certainly get it again. Next time I'd add something like BBQ sauce or cheese if I feel like taking it away from a healthy meal.

Classic French Dip

The meat is tender and I liked the au jus even if it was a little salty. I think the dipping of the sandwich helped tone down the saltiness. I enjoyed this along with the fries it came with. I wonder if they'd put cheese on these?...

Shredded Beef Nachos

This is the same photo I posted a while ago, but in case you missed it here you go! Shredded beef and cheddar cheese on top of in-house made chips with a healthy plop of sour cream and guacamole. These are very good and surprisingly not as greasy as they look. I could seriously make a meal out of just this. Can you tell I like cheese?

This is actually a gingerbread Mickey from the Penny Arcade.

I had to search for the one with the chocolate ears since they were out of them everywhere else. I scored the last one here much to the shargrin of another eyeballer.

The cookie was soft which I like, but I prefer my gingerbread cookies to be a bit more intense on the ginger. I think what made this cookie go from only ok to good were the chocolate Mickey ears. Chocolate and gingerbread were great together, and the cute mickey hat didn't hurt either.

That chicken sandwich looks great, but I would opt for no guacamole or avocado. Does the guacamole come on the side or actually on the sandwich? That looks like a chili pepper on the chicken, but I don't see the guacamole. The strawberries look great!

You have confirmed in your photo what I already suspected about the Mickey gingerbread cookie. In the other picture I saw of the 2008 cookie, I thought the cookie looked slightly shorter than it did last year, and a little pudgier. The cookies I saw last year in Marceline's were hard, not soft, and they were longer/taller gingerbread men and not as pudgy as this year's version seems to be. They are still adorable, and I will get a couple. I assume that even when they run out, the bakery is churning out fresh ones every day. Plus, there are SO many different places to find the cookies, what with all the bakeries and candy stores in DLR, etc.

But, you gave us a good tip - who in the world would think to look for cookies in the Penny Arcade? I know I wouldn't have. So now I know that if all the cookies seem to be gone from the usual places, I will poke my head in the Arcade!

The chili is a large ortega chili. If you like your spice mild you'll be OK with it. As for the guac there's a fair sized amount of it under the chicken breast. Next time, however, I'd probably do what you were thinking and opt for something like using ketchup or bbq sauce instead since the guac was more textural then taste adding.

The gingerbread men sizes actually varied depending on the design. For example, I noticed that the ones in Mickey ears tended to be shorter and pudgier while the generic looking iced men tended to be pudgier and taller. If there is one aspect, at least visually, that they both had in common it was the widening belly. I couldn't tell you if the generics were soft or hard.

Yes, I like either BBQ sauce or mustard on my chicken sandwiches, so I would go for one of those over the guacamole. I can't believe how many yummy strawberries they give on the side. Usually, you see wimpy looking pieces of fruit on the side at restaurants, but they are really generous at Whitewater Snacks - considering strawberries are technically out of season. (Of course, here in CA, we can always buy strawberries in the store - year round - though they may cost a small fortune in the off-season months, and there may not be as good a selection!)

Now, why, oh why, can't Blue Ribbon Bakery bring back the strawberry shortcake??

Yep, the gingerbread men - with or without Mickey ears - are getting portly! They are awfully cute, though - I was surprised they were not all sold out last year when I went, but we saw a lot of them everywhere. People must not have really caught on to them until this year, and now they are all the rage!

I prefer the pudgy ones myself. A softer gingerbread is good.

Yes, the cookies are probably even better this year than last, now that they are pudgy - even though I never tried them in 2007 so I am not sure how good they were or weren't last year. How could they be bad, though? I mean, as long as you like the taste of gingerbread and like Mickey ears, how could you go wrong?
