They were so yummy! You need to get them next time!

So glad your husband came home safe. I'll have to go back and check out you wedding TR. Yak and Yeti looks good. That's one we would really like to try.
I am sorry about your husband! Have fun on the wedding TR, and yes you have to try Y&Y!

I'm looking forward to all your reviews. Keep 'em coming!
Glad you enjoy. I figure a good breakdown after my rambling would be helpful!

I was really surprised the waiter didn't notice

It was yummy! Not the best shrimp dish I had, but very yummy!

I didn't make any ADRs in Animal Kingdom because none of the places really stood out to me when I looked at the websites... but now I wish we went for the Yak and Yeti! I've seen a few reviews of this place and it looks delicious! Your shrimp meal looks like it was really good. Next time I am definitely going to get a reservation there.

I missed two updates! but I'm back on board now!

I completely agree with your waitress at Tusker House, the lunch there is fantastic and you should give it a shot on your next trip! I've never done breakfast there but it looks yummy and not super crowded. I'll keep that in mind next time I'm looking for a character meal.

I've done Y&Y twice (I think) and I haven't had the best experiences. Sorry the waiter brought Josh the wrong appy- where there even egg rolls on the menu? What a strange mix up! I think that your shrimp lo mein looked yummy, I'll have to keep that in mind if we return to Y&Y. I do have to agree that the pineapple wontons are yummy, and I might just go back one day for Yak attacks and those wontons!

Snack Time!!!!



On our way out of the park we stopped at the Oasis Bridge cart, and got a little snack! I got a Mickey Bar, and Joshua got an Almond Bar!
Here is a nice photopass photo of us with my Mickey Bar!

I will replace this later, once I get the CD in the mail!
Josh loved his almond bar “It had almonds in it” --- ? My Mickey bar was as good as they come!
Defiantly worth the snack credits!
Yumm and YAY!

I hate how limited the food is in some of the parks! It can make planning hard! But having the credits to "burn" made us try some things that I wouldn't have otherwise, and I now have a few new must dos!

Glad you are caught up!

Ya know, Josh is not the only one to think that about the duck dish! I got it last year (I've had duck before in an asian resturant and it was soo good) and it was just blah. I hardly ate half of it. I can't help but wonder though how the waiter mistook egg rolls for potstickers?

BTW great decision on the Mickey Bar! Those are always nummy!

Great report! I've never heard of an almond bar!

I can't wait to try Tusker House breakfast, it sounds amazing.

Yeah, I feel like Hollywood Studios doesn't have too much to offer either. We ended up going with the Sci-Fi (I see you tried a few places in HS including that one, so I'm looking forward to what you have to say!). The Brown Derby sounds good but it's 2 credits. DF refuses to go to 50's primetime because he says he doesn't want anyone bothering him while he's trying to eat He just doesn't like the whole concept behind that place, though I was there with friends once and it was fun. And Mama Melrose and Hollywood & Vine just seem sort of blah, so we went with Sci-Fi. At least the atmosphere there should be fun!

Great updates - we have onl;y eaten at Yak & Yeti CS which is great. Sorry that Josh was disappointed with the duck - I love duck so I would probably have been disappointed too.

Was there anything out of the ordinary at TH brekkie? Or was it the standard buffet breakfast offerings?

I didn't try the Almond bar... but Josh said it was good. Tusker House was amazing though, so I say go for it!

TH Breakfast was normal breakfast food, but very tasty!

Day 1 (5/28) Narcoossee's

Seating time- 7:50


After a wonderful day exploring the animals it was time to head to one of the dinner reservations that I was most excited about!
We took a bus to Magic Kingdom, and hopped a boat over to the Grand Floridian. I was thrilled when we were greeted at the door by a very nice man who welcomed us, and directed us to the podium. We checked in, and I asked for a table on the windows. We were told it would be a bit of a wait, but they would do their best!
We decided to step out onto the deck, and enjoy the view while we waited.












We were very surprised by the number of children that we saw running around! I thought that we had made our reservation on the late side, but I guess not quite late enough.

It wasn’t too long before we were lead to a nice 4 top on the windows!


Our view


We ordered drinks to start : Josh got a coke, and I got a sprite.

I love that the menus are printed everyday!








Joshua looking at the drink menu





I knew to hit the timing right, we were going to have to take our time with this meal. I asked if we could have a few moments with the menu before we ordered. Our server brought us some bread and butter. The bread was crusty on the outside, and nice and soft on the inside. It was served with butter that was sprinkled with salt. Butter is one of my weaknesses. I try so hard to avoid it at home, but I had butter every day we were on vacation!




For appetizers I chose to go with the mussels, and the wine pairing with it.




The mussels themselves were very sweet. I loved the broth that they were served in. The “toast” that they were served with was not very toasty at all. I was not impressed. My whine paring was fantastic, and really complimented both the mussels and the broth.

Joshua went with the calamari



Josh wanted a photo for my Disney Friends that showed that it wasn’t just the circles, that there were tentacles too… eww




We enjoyed the electrical water pageant, as we waited for our entrees to come, and as we first dug into them.




For an entrée I chose the grilled filet minion





My steak was very tasty, cooked to a perfect medium rare. I really like the veggies that came with it. The potatoes were so rich that I only took a few bites, but they were very very good. I wiped the sauce off my steak, it didn’t do the meat any favors. I am a big fan of the idea that a really good piece of meat doesn’t need sauces to cover it up.

Joshua went with the Salmon, the Chef’s recommendation for the evening.




It was very rare, and Josh had never had rare fish before. That took him a bit by surprise. “It was good” He didn’t really eat all the stuff piled on it, as he was more interested in the fish. I am not a big fan of fish, so we don’t have it at home very often.

With the meal Josh ordered himself a few of these



Warning, if you have a child, or act like a child like I do, the water parade can be distracting



Soon enough our dessert menus appeared



I chose the Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse. I am a big fan of bitter, dark chocolate.




For me, this was by far the best part of the meal. The mousse was very chocolaty. It was bitter, but not too bitter. I loved the fresh berries and whipped cream that were with it! I would love to have this again!

Josh went with the gelato sampler.




It had chocolate, raspberry, pistachio and cappuccino!
Me – how as the gelato
Josh – it was good
Me – just good?
Josh – uh hu

Then it was time for the fireworks!!




A wonderful boat ride back, and we were headed to bed, dreaming of noming our way through the Magic Kingdom!

I can’t find the receipt, so I can’t tell you how much it was… I will keep looking!
Credits used – 4
Worth the Credits:
Josh – Yea I would say so due to the view. The food and the view.
Me – Meh. I would like to try another signature. I liked Cali Grill better I think….. but I would give it another try
