Your appetizer looked very good - and your description made my mouth water!
Hmmm, and that dessert looked terribly yummy! Might be because I had the same last time we went!
Hi Karin!

We will be eating at AP and will definitely be ordering the Cedar Plank Salmon
The app and dessert made the meal worthwhile for me. Next time I am definitely going with the salmon!

It certainly wasn't all bad. I would go again. Maybe we should go together in October.

The next morning we we're up bright, but not-so-early due to my late night in MK. We hit the ASMu Intermission Food Court at peak time, about 9:00am. It was a madhouse! Yet another reason to get up early - when you go before 8:00am it's still relatively quiet and easy to get in and out of the resort food courts.

I had been disappointed by food court breakfasts in the past so I decided to try something other than the standard vareity platter I usually got. Mark stuck with the platter though - called a Bounty Platter on the menus:


This had scrambled eggs, a biscuit, a sauage link, bacon, potatoes, and French toast sticks.

I didn't taste this, but I can tell you how it is from past experience. Most of the food is lukewarm and has been sitting around for a while. The eggs are overcooked, the bacon is rubbery, the biscuit is dry....you get the idea. I would avoid this dish at the food courts.

Mark also had a NesCafe coffee...or what we like to call 'Nescrappe' here on the boards.

I decided to try a Western Omelet, which is served with Potatoes:


The omelet had diced ham, cheddar cheese, green peppers, and tomatoes. It was made fresh when I ordered it. I had to wait a while at the counter, but it was totally worth it to not have cold overcooked food. The omelet was done perfectly - fluffy, light and moist, but not runny.

The potatoes weren't that great. They have them just sitting around in a hot pan so they're kind of soggy and lukewarm.

I got two slices of marble rye bread I toasted. It was good to cut off some omelet and put it on the toast - a breakfast sandwich with my omelet. The bread was of a decent quality and not stale.

I also had a bottle of OJ. Unfortunately, Disney just stocks Minute Maid from concentrate. I would be willing to pay a little more for something better like Simply Orange. But the Minute Maid does the job well enough I suppose.

I really think the secret to getting a decent meal at the resort food courts is to order something they have to make fresh while you wait. Figuring this out has greatly improved my experience at breakfast!

Grade: C

I'm really looking forward to reading more of your reviews!!! And you have great photos too.

Great idea to make an omelet sandwich at the food court!

My daughter had the buffalo loin steak at AP and liked it.... I tasted it and thought it was meh...I wouldn't order it either. The gratin potatoes looked good, too bad they were not as great as they look.

They were both good but I enjoyed one more than the other. I'll share more on that when I get to them.

Foodcourt breakfast! Tell me about it!

I am so with you on the "Bounty Platter". Tried it ......... no thanks!
But if they have to make something fresh it is quite good - we had waffles at the Pop foodcourt and they were pretty good!
Never tried an omlette, but I have made a note that it is something to seriously consider at the food court!

In response to your question: I had the pork loin something or another....it wasn't that great. What was even worse was the bland, no flavor barley side dish.... I would order anything but that again!

Anyway....looking forward to more of your review!
