Loved reading about the Trek - Simon and Kate are thinking about doing this next August - and I'm tempted to do it just for the food now!

I've never eaten in the castle and your review is making me think I'd quite like to do it now!

More please!

Great photo of you on Main Street and in the Castle. We've never eaten there (our boys would not be caught dead eating in a castle when they were young). We' read such mixed review of the food that we've never given it a second thought. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Love your meal at CRT! We should try it again sometime - we haven't been in years!

Wow, that french toast looks absolutely delicious. The reviews on CRT seem very mixed, but that one plate of food would make it all worth it.

Amazing pics - your table looks awesome (and there's nothing like getting pics on a nearly empty Main Street)

The view from your table looks amazing and I need to try some of those cream cheese stuffed french toast
It was certainly a wonderful way to start the day

Hi Shari It's certainly worth eating in the castle at least once

Thanks I didn't go in with any expectations about the food so I think it was really a case of being 'pleasantly surprised'

I'd like to try dinner there sometime, it would be great to get a window table and see Fantasyland all lit up; lots more places to try before we go back though

We were so lucky with the table and it really added to the experience

Aloha Isle

Monday 10th October Part Two

Magic Kingdom was fairly quite this morning so we made great progress around the park before heading off for a classic attraction and a classic treat





Dole Whip Soft Serve Swirl - Pineapple and Vanilla

I always go for the Pineapple and Vanilla Swirl as I think that the Vanilla really enhances the taste of the Pineapple

Only one problem with this creamy delight …………..

Two spoons, I had to get two spoons

Coming Up Next – Earl Of Sandwich

Earl Of Sandwich

Monday 10th October Part Three

We left MK around lunch time as the crowds started to roll in and headed over to Downtown Disney a visit to the old favourite; Earl Of Sandwich

As always the line was fairly big but it moves really quickly; they have a really good ordering and collection system in place and the staff really do a great job at keeping things moving

Once we had collected our order and grabbed a couple of bottles of water we headed outside to find a table



DH decided to switch things up a bit (he nearly always orders The Caprese or the Tuna Melt) and ordered The Original



The Original 1762 - Fresh Roasted Beef, Cheddar and Creamy Horseradish Sauce

He enjoyed it but felt that the cheddar and horseradish combined made the sandwich a little too wet and probably would have preferred it with just the horseradish sauce; I suspect he will go back to his usual choices next time

I knew exactly what I wanted



The Veggie - Feta Cheese, Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion, Roasted Red Peppers and Mediterranean Dressing

I just love this sandwich, I love the saltiness of the Feta combined with the slightly sweet Mediterranean Dressing and Peppers

We had a big dinner planned for this evening so as hard as it was we resisted the Bread Pudding (which is wonderful here) and grabbed some grapes to take back to the Resort



Grapes ....... Exciting Huh!

As always Earl Of Sandwich was a great choice for lunch and we will certainly be back next time

Next Up – Flying Fish Cafι

Hi Linda, I just read your May dining report and caught up on this one too. Great reports and the food..... Wow, I am so torturing myself! I am dieting until I get back next year. I dont know if you remember me but I met you briefly on the Dream. I also ended up booking a Fantasy cruise, I think I will be getting on as you get off. Looking forward to seeing more!

Great that you have another cruise to look forward to as well!

Pineapple vanilla swirl! The best food at Disney, tropical, sweet, creamy. I love that stuff so much that it makes up half of my username (with the other half being my favorite character).

Can't believe you actually shared it. I can understand sharing Disney cupcakes because they're enormous. But each and every drop of tart pineapple goodness mixed with creamy vanilla is like ice cream gold to me. I bow to your willpower and altruism.

Are you sailing on the 5/19/12 Fantasy ? If so, so are we . There's actually a rather large group of us DISers who met (via the DIS Cruise Meets board) before our Magic cruise in May 2009. We all got along so well that we decided to cruise together on The Fantasy .

Yep I'm on that cruise too. We're spending a week at WDW before our cruise though. I have popped into the cruise meet thread but only once or twice.
