Nothing wrong with ice cream for breakfast - it is Friday after all

We really enjoyed the food and to be honest I didn't expect to; I just thought it would be a fun show
Everything we tried was hot, fresh and really well prepared

There were some big family groups there and they were having a blast
It's a great place to go if you are celebrating something as you have a chance to get involved in the show

We have been slightly obsessed with reading about the Disney Cruise since reading your review.....and hubby even more so!
Go on book one, you know you want to

Lol at the request you made to DH!

We are going to CP on the 26 Sept - a while to go yet!

Hi Karin
I insist you treat yourself to an ice cream cookie sandwich - you deserve it

The salmon was lovely and I think there is a pasta dish as well for vegetarians

Animal Kingdom

Wednesday 25th May 2011

Happy Friday everyone, hope you all have a wonderful weekend

It was another early start on May 25th as we wanted to be at AK for rope drop

Before heading out we grabbed a coffee and a Pecan & Cinnamon Roll from Roaring Fork



Cinnamon Roll @ Roaring Fork

Heavenly

We didn’t really have any lunch plans today so decided to just see where we ended up when we got hungry

The lines really weren’t too bad in AK that day so we managed to hit all the biggies several times and after we had used our Safari FPs we headed to Tamu Tamu Refreshments as it was close by and hunger was beginning to strike

It was really busy in the area immediately surrounding Tamu Tamu and at first we couldn’t find anywhere to sit.

We headed around the side of Tusker House and the Dawa Bar and found that there were lots of deserted tables so we were soon tucking in to our lunch

Here’s my selection



Tuna Salad Pita - served with apple slices

This was really excellent, the Pita bread was lovely and fresh and the Tuna salad mix was perfect. I really enjoyed this lunch

And for DH



Cheeseburger Basket - served with chips & Chocolate Mousse

I had the Chocolate Mousse as well and it was actually really good.

DH said that the Cheeseburger was ‘OK’ and he really enjoyed the chips and made a nice change to the usual fries

Just FYI you can select a Milk Shake as your dessert here and they were huge and looked really good

Later on in the afternoon DH said he wanted to try a Corn Dog, he had never had one before (we don’t really get them in England) so he picked one up from the Safari Corn Dog Kiosk

The CM was having a total nightmare with her cash register and as the line grew longer and her temper grew shorter she said ‘just take it for free’ and then told everyone else behind us that she was closed

Yay for free food



Insert Caption Of Your Choice Here

So what was DH’s verdict on his first ever Corn Dog?

He loved the first few bites but then found it a ‘bit sickly’ so I don’t think he will be rushing back for another one

Happy Friday, Linda!

That Cinnamon and Pecan roll looks sooooo yummy. I am so looking forward to our second stay with NO DDP - I guess I will live off snacks!

You know, we never even gave Tamu Tamu a thought, but seeing your tuna salad pita makes me reconsider. That looks just mouthwatering yummy!

I am with your DH on the corndogs! Tried one and we both were not huge fans of it. I guess this is something you need to grow up with, like rootbeer - yuck!
Don't worry you have to grow up with Sauerkraut and meat filled dumplings as well!

That tuna pretty good and I wouldnt normally order something like that out. I just started liking corn dogs last year while pregnant. But from what I've heard the ones at WDW aren't that great, but Disneyland supposedly has good ones.

I like that the scoop of tuna salad and the two slices of tomato form a sort of hidden Mickey.

Happy Friday Linda!

Another great review! You really are reaching the parts that other reviews don't reach!

I would never have thought of Tamu Tamu (and I consider myself to be somewhat of a Disney food expert.....) but the food from there looked great! I'm not a huge fan of tuna but even I was drooling at the tuna pitta! (Must be because it's nearly teatime...)

I've always wanted to try a corn dog too! Well done to your hubby for having a go!

Hi Karin
Thanks goodness it's the weekend
I actually really like rootbeer and sauerkraut although probably not at the same time

Wow, I admire your staying power, that's an awful lot of my rambling to take in at once
Lots more to come, stay tuned for Jiko next

It was just perfect for a light lunch on a very hot day at AK

Oh I would love to go to Disneyland one day
I was working in LA for a week earlier this year but couldn't fit in a visit ... one day I will hopefully

Glad you spotted that actually there was a very cool hidden Mickey behind Tusker House and the Dawa Bar next to the table where we ate our lunch (thanks to a great CM for pointing it out)

I don't remember finding much in the way of CS at AK that I have enjoyed in the past; DH likes Flame Tree BBQ but there isn't much for me there so Tamu Tamu was a great find
It's a very small selection on the menu though

Hey Linda, I have to say that the cinnamon roll looks a little dry. Was it? I am not a fan of pecans so I hope Roaring Fork has normal cinnamon rolls too (I can't remember)

I am probably alone in that the tuna pita looks awful to me - but I absolutely abhor tuna

I've never had a corn dog - I've had cornbread though, is it anything like that?

Yay on DH getting a free corn dog - it's a shame he didn't enjoy it but at least he did not pay anything for it!
