I had no idea the TiW worked at the All Star food court! I wonder if that's the only Food Court? Hmmm

Biergarten. That cheesecake is from heaven!

Great reviews-lookin' forward to more! Sorry to hear check-in took an hour.

The DIS ate my post! Very weird. Let's see if I can remember what I said...

I had no idea the All Star Food Court took the TiW! That is very nice. I wonder if it's the only food court that does?

Biergarten...yum. That cheesecake is from heaven!

Sorry to hear that check-in took an hour. That's annoying.

Looking forward to more!

Great review! I totally understand what you say about bluezoo, I am not really sure wether I would feel comfortable there, it looks far too trendy to me... And then I am not a seafood lover.

I enjoyed your perspective on Biergarten! Being German I have never tried it so far since it just feels wrong eating German food while being on vacation in a foreign country, but I really want to try it on my next trip. And I think a Riesling is a pretty good choice as a drink in a German restaurant. I loved it that you actually spelled it the correct way as well!

We had pork chops and sauerkraut. I put a little apple juice in the sauerkraut and it came out delicious! I also made au gratin potatoes...from a box.

Any location that only has Counter Service will take TiW...I forget the exact list, but it's all the value resorts and possibly POFQ. I think there's also some over at Animal Kingdom that take it

We have a few restaurants around here that serve German food, but none that have the selection of Biergarten.

My secret on Riesling? The Finger Lakes (of NY) wine region is very similar in climate to Germany. Rieslings are very popular in the area and I heard at one of the (many) classes I've taken that we're one of the top 3 Riesling producing areas in the world...in terms of quality, not necessarily quantity. When I'm home, I usually order one of the local Rieslings, so I know I like dry ones, but I have no idea what to order when it comes to other parts of the world The big difference in a German and NY State Riesling is that German ones tend to be more minerally than the NY State ones.

Starring Rolls - Breakfast

So I saw this post on the Disney Food Blog. I knew immediately we needed to try one during our stay. What better time than breakfast?

Ariel and I hit Hollywood Studios at opening, rode TSM and then went for cupcakes. Her brother, Goofy, joined us during breakfast.


Taken while waiting.

After a small wait, we got our cupcakes. Many people were jealous that we were eating cupcakes for breakfast and told us just how smart we were. We WERE on vacation after all!

Of course, we didn't get just one cupcake. We got 2. We split them both. Officially, Ariel got the Butterfinger Cupcake:


And I got the Red Velvet Cupcake:

I don't know why I have two knives there

...I was covered in frosting by the time Goofy showed up, so I didn't get pictures of his food. I think he was boring and got one of those cinnamon rolls I pictured early.

The verdict? Ehhhh on the Butterfinger Cupcake. The outer shell of the frosting was hard, which made it difficult to eat with a fork (we were trying to be proper!) and difficult to split. It was excruciatingly sweet...and I like sweet!

The Red Velvet on the other hand was heaven. Just the right amount of sweet, a moist cake, perfect frosting. I'd definitely get it again and we both agreed it was the winner of our cupcake throwdown!

My only real complaint about Starring Rolls is the seating. We wound up sitting on a bench, which isn't the most conducive to eating a massive cupcake.

Via Napoli - Lunch - Take 2

After checking for a walk up at Mama Melrose & Brown Derby (Goofy decided he didn't want counter service...) we made our way over to Epcot. After checking a few more places, we wound up at Via Napoli...for me? Again.

I decided that I should try something other than pizza, so I went with the Lasanga Verde:


It was delicious! Creamy and hot without being heavy. I actually finished the whole thing

Goofy & Ariel split the Procuttio & Melon pizza:


They enjoyed it. Could definitely see why I said I didn't mind eating there again

This time...we got dessert

I had the Zeppoles:


O.M.G. I didn't share. They were so good. The chocolate sauce was not just Hershey's syrup, it was fantastic. I highly HIGHLY recommend these.

Goofy got the "Ugly but Good"


It was some kind of sundae. Not really my style, but he really enjoyed it.

Ariel got the Tiramisu:


If I'm being honest...this looks like every restaurant's standard tiramisu. I wasn't overly impressed with it (because I could tell it came from a box.) But she enjoyed it. I think I won in the dessert department

Overall, I enjoyed Via Napoli again. Our waiter tried to tell me I couldn't use TiW because it was the weekend. Apparently I gave him a look because he checked again on it (without me asking--I didn't care enough to push the issue.) So he won points for that. The only thing I'll mention is that my dish came out before their pizza. Not a big deal since we're adults (and we were warned before hand) but I can see how that might be a big deal for families with children, so just an FYI.

ESPN/Jellyrolls/ASMo

ESPN Club
I'm a failure. I always forget to take pictures when we eat at the ESPN Club There was a line for seating actually in the restaurant, but we walked into the bar area and found an open booth. There were a few college games going on, so it was more crowded than we expected. Our service was very slow (I'm guessing) because of this...it took a half hour to get our bill after we were done eating. I felt bad because there was a family who wanted our booth that wound up at a high top table.

Anyway, both Ariel & I got the turkey & brie sandwich that they had. It was fantastic and really hit the spot. I like the ESPN Club when you just want something simple. Plus, it's usually easy to walk in and find an open table in the bar area.

Jellyrolls
Afterwards, we headed over to Jellyrolls. I love Jellyrolls, I think it's a delightfully fun time. If you haven't been, it's a dueling piano bar (I think the cover was $10.) You can request songs by writing them on a napkin and putting them on the piano with a tip. If you're 21+, check it out!

All Star Movies Food Court-Breakfast
My parents came up to take me to the airport, so we all got breakfast at the food court before I left (Goofy was taking Ariel later that day.) I don't remember what everyone had...I'm useless without pictures! But everything came out hot & fresh!

I do remember that I had the adult portion of the Mickey Waffle. I know it's just a waffle, but it's something about having a *Mickey* waffle at Disney...I love it. Overall I'm impressed with the value's food courts. They're very efficient, especially in the morning

And this concludes my food journey. Thanks for joining me! I'll leave you with a picture since this entry is lacking

Gingerbread creation from the Boardwalk. Anyone for roast duck?

Loved your reviews. The zeppoles always look so stinkin' good. When we eat there next time I have to remember to leave room for dessert!

We had a Butterfinger Cupcake in December 09 and it was delicious. VERY sweet (3 of us couldn't finish it), but otherwise fantastic. I hope the quality hasn't gone down since! I love Red Velvet, so that or the peanut butter one is next on my list. YUM.
