Yeah, I don't remember what our issue was in 2005. Really glad we went back. We enjoyed our meal very much.

Great review of Rose and Crown. In the 20+ years of Disney vacations, I never ate at Rose and Crown until this year. It was a great meal and now it is also on my must do list for my next trip. Too bad you didn't try the cheese plate. It was one of the best I had all week. Thanks for the great reviews.

We actually did try that for our 2009 meal. And I agree, it was very good. Hard to top the Scotch Egg for me though ... I am drooling thinking about it now!

I've got to try Rose and Crown sometime. I've never eaten there after 10+ trips to WDW. I keep reading positive reviews so it must be good.

I loved your review on Rose and Crown. Those scotch eggs looks amazing and of course they are fat free

I am really kicking myself for cancelling R&C...your meals look wonderful. Maybe I can cancel The Wave and add it back in?

Did you notice if the Joy of Tea stand has the Peach Snap? Rumor was they were no longer serving it

The gelato creations must be new, and a nice steep price tag to go with it but the combos sound to delish to pass up

Isn't everything fat free at Disney?

I really enjoyed The Wave but I would go to R&C if those were my two choices. BUt then again, I really love that type of food and cannot get it here at home.

DH got the mango drink at the tea stand so I didn't even look.

As for the gelato, I don't think I even looked at the price until you just said something! Vacation mode ... who looks at prices!

Oh, I love Rose & Crown! So glad you enjoyed your meal there as well.

For the last 6 trips or so, DH and I have had a very early morning flight, and R&C has been our arrival day lunch, so it has a special place for us - kicking off our WDW vacation! Just 26 days until our lunch there!

We've never tried the Rose & Crown

I guess we always think it's a little odd to travel from England and head straight for an English pub

Glad you enjoyed your meal there

That is what we did Christmas morning 2009 so I think that is why it holds a special place for us as well!

Yeah, can't say that I blame you. I have never eaten anything from the American Pavillion either!

When the plans were made for Saturday, 8/27, it was assuming that my sister and her family (including my 5 year old nephew) were going to come up to Orlando for the day. DNep hasn't been to WDW yet even though they are only 3 hours away. Money has been very tight for them the past few years. Anyhow, about a month or so before the trip, she decided they really could not go. We had a breakfast at Crystal Palace that I cancelled as I knew I couldn't really move our 'Ohana dinner later.

So once we got to the MK, our first stop had to be the Main Street Bakery.



DS had a chocoloate croissant and DH & I split an everything bagel. Both were fine. Just needed something in our stomach. Also got an OJ and I am pretty sure a water. We used snack credits but I did not get the total.

Lunch was at Tony's. This has been a very mixed meal for us. We had a couple of decent meals over the years but then in 2008 it was one of the worst meals of the trip. Thinking that it would be easier to stay in the MK with my nephew, I made a reservation there knowing he eats spaghetti. Once I decided to do that, I became wedded to the idea of going back so I didn't change it.

We checked in a few minutes early and were seated right away. Bethany, our server, was very good. Friendly, kept our glasses filled. Very good service overall.

To start DH and I shared Flavors of Italy Antipasto - A selection of Italian Favorites featuing Olives, Sliced Deli Meats, Roasted Garlic, and Artichokes - $13.99



We also wanted to share as a family the Zucchini Fries - Breaded ,seasoned with a creamy sun dried tomato dressing for dipping - $7.99



DS felt like having Minestrone - Made with orzo pasta. - $5.49 again so we paid out of pocket for it ...



All of the appetizers were quite good, especially the zucchini fries. They were nice and crispy and the dipping sauce really good.

For our entrees, DH had Tony's Flatbread - Smoked chicken, caramelized onions, fontina cheese, spinach, and red pepper sauce. - $12.99



I had the Panini of the Day - Panini of the day. - $13.49 which was pastrami and provolone



DS wanted Chicken Caesar Salad - Romaine lettuce with grilled chicken tossed in Tony's Caesar dressing



We really shared all 3 entrees and all were quite tasty. The flatbread was just a bit spicy. The salad lettuce was crisp and cold. The panini was good even though not like a traditional panini that I am used to. The flavors in it worked well.

We did have dessert ...

For DH, the Lemon Walnut Layer Cake - Layered vanilla cake filled with lemon curd. - $5.49



For me, the Pistachio Creme Brulee - Pistachio Creme Brulee - $5.99



And for DS the Tiramisu - Espresso soaded Lady Fingers, whipped mascarpone and dark chocolate shavings. - $6.49



All were quite tasty, especially the creme brulee. Nice crunchy topping and creamy inside.

All in all we enjoyed our meal. Is it a must do each trip? Probably not because there are other places around the MK that we want to try for lunch (The Wave being one). But I am glad we went back to erase the negative memory from our previous trip.

We, again all had iced teas. Dining plan total came to $92.65. The extra soup was $6.34.

Dinner was at 'Ohana. DH's request but I had also thought it would be a good choice for my sister's family so I booked it the night they were supposed to be with us.

We checked in about 5:45 for our 6:10 reservation. DH and I had a couple of drinks while waiting -



I apologize but I do not remember what they were and cannot find the receipt!

We were seated abotu 6:30 with the perfect table if we had been there later


(Obviously a zoomed view but perfect view of the Castle)

First up the yummy pineapple bread and salad



The dipping sauces -



The potstickers and wings ... I could make a meal of just the potstickers!



The broccoli and noodles ...



And of course the meat!





I was disappointed to read that the turkey changed to chicken and was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the chicken! I also enjoyed the pork. None of us really loved the beef. All of our pieces were a bit tough. DH thought thought the pork was dry but DS and I prefer our pork that way especially with the sauces for dipping!

We were completely stuffed but of course still had to have dessert!



Oh how we love the bread pudding. I heard that something had changed but don't remember what and we still loved it just as much!

Total would have been $105.41. All in all a really good meal. DS says it is a must do next trip. DH says he would go either way. I will see what else may sound interesting but really think I agree with DS!

After dinner we headed back to the MK for the Main Street Electrical Parade



This was the first parade I ever say in Disney so it holds very fond memories for me. I do love Spectro but was really glad we got to see this parade again. I don't know that I can really pick a favorite between the two. Maybe they can just alternate nights in the future!

I just did my review of Ohana as well! I see that we both loved the potstickers and the bread pudding. That bread pudding was the best. I'm going back in January when I'm taking my daughter on a Disney cruise and we're spending 2 days at WDW afterwards. I hadn't originally made an ADR for Ohana but I cancelled Sci Fi and made one for Ohana. I can't wait!

Just read your review! I could seriously just eat the potstickers & broccoli with the bread pudding for dessert. I am a pretty big meat eater but just really love the sides there. This one is still up in the air for us as to whether we return next year but if I were a betting gal, I would say yes!
