May the FOOD Be With You...a SWW Dining Report! NEW! 7/5

I'm not new to this side of the boards...it's my favorite hang out

Here's our adventurous dining crew from a galaxy not that far away

First, there's me:

My dining horizons have expanded greatly over the years, but I'm still not a huge fan of tomatoes, raw onions, & peppers. I also don't have a high tolerance for spicy foods. I'll try almost anything once.

Next up we have Geoff, my fiancé:

He loves to try new foods, as long as they don't have tomatoes larger than what you find in salsa. Or eggplant. Orrrr stinky cheeses (yum!)

Then we have my Mom:

She doesn't like spicy foods either. Or raw onions.

And finally, but not least, is my Dad:

He doesn't like really strong cheeses, but loves cheese in general. If I want to try something, he's always game to split it with me


Now that we have our crew, let's get rolling!

Where we ate:
Sassagoula Floatworks - Dinner
Sassagoula Floatworks - Breakfast
Mama Melrose - Lunch
Raglan Road - Dinner
Sunshine Seasons - Breakfast
Tangierine Cafe - Lunch
Karamel Kuche - Snack
Cava Del Tequila - Snack
Flying Fish - Dinner
Jellyrolls - Nighttime fun
Sassagoula Floatworks - Breakfast
Outback Steakhouse (airport) - Lunch

**Restaurants will be linked to chapter as posted!

Loved the new rooms at FQ. Also is my favorite resort, so I might be biased

And I was dying in the heat. My parents (who live in FL) told Geoff & I we were wusses.

Sassagoula Floatworks - Dinner

First up! Dinner at French Quarter!



Our plane landed at about 730...more or less on time. We took off early, but had to fly around storms, so I was just excited we didn't have a real delay! Neither of us were that hungry, so we decided to just head down to Magical Express and catch the bus over to FQ.

After checking in (you can read the full story when I start my Trip Report...oooo, a cliff hanger...of sorts anyway...) we headed over to Sassagoula Floatworks to grab a bite to eat.

By this time we were starving

I settled on the Pot Roast with choice of 2 sides:

I picked mashed potatoes & corn. I asked them to go light on the gravy. I was actually surprised at how much I liked this meal. I wasn't expecting much from it, so maybe that had something to do with it. But the corn had a nice flavor to it and wasn't chewy/rubbery like some fast food corn can be. The mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious (with just the right amount of gravy!) And the meat was tender and flavorful. My only complaint is that there was only one itty bitty carrot hiding in the meat, it would have been great to have more carrots. Oh, and I thought the corn bread was a little dry, but by the time I got to it, I was full! Over all, big thumbs up!

Geoff had the Fried Chicken with choice of 2 sides:

He picked the collard greens & dirty rice. He thought the collard greens were extremely flavorful, but a little on the spicy side. The dirty rice he loved, even though half of it wound up on the tray And the chicken he thought was moist and flavorful. There was a ton of chicken though, we could have easily split this meal!!

After he was done:


After dinner we put our stuff in our room and joined my parents for a drink in the lounge:


I didn't take any pictures of drinks here, but one thing to note is that Tampa & Boston were playing the final game of their Playoff Series (Hockey) and they couldn't switch the channel because they weren't playing on ESPN. My Mom was a little annoyed, but we used our phones to stay updated on the game...yay technology! The music was nice, but a little on the loud side. Not too much else to say about it.

All in all, Sassagoula & Scat Cats get from us!

Nicki's trip caused me to make two changes ... both additions so a bit of juggling! My DH & DS say that I am not allowed to change anything else. C'mon it is still 87 days til check-in! They can't expect me to leave it alone yet!

I'm in! Looking forward to your reviews. We stayed at PO multiple times growing up and we love the resort

by-the-way, I find that totally ridiculous that they refused to put the game b/c it wasn't on ESPN

My final change to our dining plans was made a week before we left...I finally was able to snag a later ADR at Raglan Road! I haven't touched my September plans though...yet...
