I didn't realize that you'd started a dining report also! Signing on!

The one thing that creeps me out about the food court there is those giant heads. I'm not sure what it is about them, they just literally freak me out. LOL!!

I'm VERY fussy about my tuna fish. I don't like anyone making it but me. I have to season it just right and then it has to sit in the fridge and get cold. LOL! Yeah, I'm strange that way. LOL!!

Too bad DH's sub wasn't bigger. It's weird how some things seem like too much and then others seem like not enough.

The desserts are my favorite part of the meal. LOL! I think they should come first. LOL!!

Now I'm excited about trying T-Rex for the first time next week. It was a must do for us since DS is really, really into dinosaurs. It was one of the two places that he asked to eat at on our upcoming trip.

The berries sound yummy!! Sometimes something light and refreshing is just what you need to top off a wonderful meal!

I love great waiters. They make dining out wonderful.

The first thing we needed to do was talk to the chef about my dietary needs. When we opened up the door, the seating area was PACKED, but the actual food court was pretty empty.

I went up to one of the ordering stations and asked to speak to the chef - Chef Rafael came out to talk with me. While he was a little hard to understand, he was eager to help with my dietary requests and very nice.

I ended up getting a modified Bounty Platter with no-salt eggs, strawberries, and 2 small Mickey waffles with milk as my drink. I was told at the register where I could find sugar-free syrup as well. While everything was very good, and the strawberries were fresh and delicious, I was hoping for a little more variety and the portions of everything were very small.

Rating for special order modified Bounty Platter:


My husband ordered the Western Omelette with Potatoes. He also got milk as his drink. He said the omelette was good, but the potatoes were what made the meal. He's a big eater, and he thought the portion was somewhat small (though it would probably be more than enough to satisfy the average appetite).

Rating for Western Omelette with Potatoes:


Total Cost of Meal: $22.98 (2QS Credits Used)

Welcome! Glad you are enjoying the reviews!

If possible, talk to Chef Rafael. I believe he was from France, and he does have a rather thick accent. He was very nice and more than eager to work with me. Just make sure you go in at a time that isn't busy - we were there for a late-ish breakfast, not at a prime eating time. Also, if you see Earl (a manager), he is also very nice and will help bridge any communication gaps you may have with Rafael.

Hey you! You made the jump over from my TR also, huh? I thought I told you I was doing a DR as well ... sorry!

I'm pretty fussy about my tuna fish as well. I prefer albacore, and I also like it to have some taste!

I hope you enjoy T-Rex as much as we did. If you have any eating issues whatsoever, make sure you ask for Chef Chuck - he was so funny and very helpful.

Mostly what my DH orders is Coke, Coke, Coke, but I try to get him to get something else ... anything else ... at breakfast!

Sassagoulas Snack 09/18

Tuesday, September 18 - Snack at Sassagoula's POFQ

If you like sugary snacks, you can't go wrong with the pastry counter at Sassagoula's. They have muffins, rice krispie treats, cookies, brownies ... and of course, you can always request the hot powdered-sugar covered beignets.

DH wanted to try one of the cookies today - he had two or three choices. I know one choice was chocolate chip. He bought Oatmeal Raisin. These cookies are *huge* and easily shareable between two people. He also got milk to go with it.

The Oatmeal Raisin Cookie was baked perfectly. It was chewy, studded with raisins, and just a little crusty around the edges ... just the way it should be.

Rating for Giant Oatmeal Cookie:


Total Cost for Snack: $4.34 (OOP)


Notes: You're probably wondering ... why did we pay OOP for this snack when we had so many snack credits on our dining plan? At the time, we thought we'd "save" them to use while we were in the parks for "better" snacks (think Mickey bars, cupcakes, etc.).

Boatwright's Dining Hall Dinner 09/18

Tuesday, September 18 - Dinner at Boatwright's Dining Hall at Riverside

This dinner was a last-minute substitution. We originally had plans to go to MNSSHP tonight, and had an ADR at Liberty Tree Tavern before the party. It rained heavily today, so we decided to skip MNSSHP, cancelled the LTT ADR and made one for Boatwright's instead.


First Impressions: The waiting area to be seated for the restaurant is quite small, and there is precious little parking for strollers or ECVs inside. The podium staff are all friendly. It's a much larger restaurant than I first thought, and there are a lot of empty tables. The decor is charming, and we are seated in front of a small, cozy fireplace upstairs.


Once seated, our waiter greeted us immediately with menus and a basket of cornbread. He explained the dining plan to us, then seemed quite impatient for our orders. I let him know I would need to speak with the chef to see what modifications could be made, and he walked off wordlessly to get him.

Chef James came out a few minutes later. He was nice and offered several suggestions, including providing steamed broccoli for my vegetable (which is not on the menu), and making a substitution of potatoes for the mac & cheese. He was easy to work with.

Once Chef James walked away, our waiter came back and took our entire order all at once ... entree and dessert. Nowhere I've eaten has this ever been done. Maybe this is the norm for Boatwright's, but it's very off-putting. We barely had time to look at the entree menu and consider the choices, much less figure out what we wanted for dessert. The pressure was ON and applied heavily to order quickly.


For my entree, I chose a modified version of the Grilled Tenderloin Medallions, medium-well. As suggested, I substituted yukon gold potatoes for the mac & cheese, steamed broccoli for the asparagus, and had the red wine demi glace on the side. Chef James also suggested I not get the crawfish beignet, so I did not order it. I ordered tea as my drink.

The tenderloin medallions was a very small portion, but cooked just right. They were tender and juicy. The yukon gold potatoes tasted quite salty to me, and I only ate a few small bites. I wondered at the time why this suggestion for substitution had been made when the seasoning on them is obviously full of salt. The broccoli was quite good - steamed crisp-tender and not at all mushy. I did not care for the red wine demi glace and was glad I had requested it to be on the side.

Rating for Special Order Grilled Tenderloin Medallions:


My husband also ordered the Grilled Tenderloin Medallions medium-well. He substituted yukon gold potatoes in place of the asparagus, but somehow was served asparagus anyway and did not receive the mac & cheese. We're not sure where the confusion was - with the way he ordered it or the way the waiter wrote it down, but the waiter did bring out a crock full of mac & cheese when my husband mentioned it. He ordered the red wine demi glace on the side. He ordered Coke to drink.

He thought the serving size for the tenderloin medallions was awfully small. His were cooked properly, and were tender and juicy as well. He, too, thought the yukon gold potatoes were way too salty, so he did not eat them. On the other hand, he loved the red wine demi glace, and thought it really enhanced the taste of the tenderloin medallions. He did not eat the asparagus. He attempted to eat the crawfish beignet, but it was rock hard and dry. He thought the mac & cheese had a unique taste - this was not your average mac & cheese. Whatever cheese they're using definitely makes it the stand-out side dish for the meal.

Rating for Grilled Tenderloin Medallions:


Remember, the waiter had taken our dessert order at the same time as our entree order, so it came out immediately after we were finished with the main meal.


I ordered the No Sugar Added Lemon Pound Cake with Seasonal Berries. I have to say, this is easily the worst dessert I've ever eaten anywhere, not just in Disney. It honestly tasted like the pound cake had been frozen and thawed. There were two layers of the cake with thin slices of strawberries and smears of whipped cream in between. The cake was dry and tasteless. The smears of whipped cream had no flavor at all - no sweetener or vanilla in it, just plain heavy cream, whipped and smeared on the bottom layer of cake. I think there may have been a total of two strawberries, sliced very thin, in the whole dessert. In a word, it was yucky. I wished I had ordered a full-sugar dessert and just eaten a couple of bites of it instead.

Rating for No Sugar Added Lemon Pound Cake with Seasonal Berries:


My husband ordered the Chocolate Cake with Fresh Cream and Raspberry Sauce. It came out in a HUGE slab! He said it tasted freshly-baked. It was soft and very chocolatey. He loved the raspberry sauce, but thought there could be more of it instead of just a smear on the plate. I was so jealous - this cake looked so good and he devoured it in record time.

Rating for Chocolate Cake with Fresh Cream and Raspberry Sauce:


Along with our bill, our waiter brought out one plastic hurricane-style glass with Mardi Gras beads inside and said, "Happy Anniversary." One glass as a souvenier for two people? He also brought a to-go box for our leftover cornbread as requested by my husband.



Total Cost of Meal: $80.02 (2TS Credits Used)


Rating of Quality of Service:


Final Thoughts: Boatwright's Dining Hall has a neat, cozy atmosphere. It was very easy to get a last-minute ADR. This is a convenient TS restaurant if you are staying at either of the Port Orleans resorts; that being said, I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to eat here if I wasn't.

This was the most rushed meal we had - we definitely felt rushed to order, to be sure. Our waiter had a large table he was catering to - once we got our food, he mostly left us alone until it was time to deliver the bill. I have his name, but I won't list it because I think it's unfair to call someone out on the carpet who cannot defend themselves.

The portions of the Grilled Tenderloins was small, but we saw plates of the Slow-Roasted Prime Rib going by that were positively huge, so if you want to try this restaurant and have a large appetite, that may be the better choice. My husband said he wished he had ordered that instead. He said perhaps if he hadn't felt so rushed to order and given more time to consider it, he would have.

Chef James was easy to work with, so if you have special requests don't hesitate to ask to speak with him ... no matter how much pressure there is to order quickly.

I hate when the wait staff rush us like that. I've been known to embarrass DH because of it. I told one waitress that I'm paying for this meal. I won't be rushed and if you don't like it that's fine. You can rush me all you want. It will be reflected in your tip. DH turned about 20 shades of red and it looked like he wanted to crawl under the table. LOL!! But she stopped rushing me after I said it. Yeah, I'm not at all shy when it comes to stuff like that.

I'm a steak snob. I don't like anything on my steak. Other than salt and a little bit of pepper. No glazes or weird sauces. I guess it's because my dad never used sauce and my taste buds are used to it. LOL!!

The mac and cheese sounds wonderful. Although DS is convinced that all Disney make and cheese tastes terrible. He remembers it from a trip a few years ago and I even tried it and it was pretty bad. Worse than the powered stuff. No flavor and even adding salt didn't help it. LOL!!

Oh asparagus. I love, love, love that stuff. I could live on it. LOL! It's my favorite veggie next to broccoli.

Too bad about the cake. I swear that I can tell a fresh baked cake from one that's been frozen. Especially if it's been refrozen again and again.

I was thinking along those lines earlier.

We don't eat steak...I don't grill outside and have zero desire to learn. Therefore, I can't tell one kind of steak from another.

Cake, however, is a different story. A good Polish bakery is something I've missed since I left the Chicago area over 10 years ago and I grew up on really good baked products.

First time we went to WDW, we'd heard again and again that Disney meals are "huge", but we also thought the portions were often small to moderate. Except when it comes to desserts -- we split those, often as not! Wasn't an issue for me, but I think Ballet Girl would have to supplement a QSDP (and have a lot of buffets on a TS one).

Whoops, I see I missed a whole page of posts between writing this up and getting around to actually posting it. Gotta go bake cookies, though, but happily I'm subscribed so I'll get a reminder if I forget to go back and reread. I'd miss a lot without that subscribe option!

I could definitely tell the pound cake had been frozen and thawed. It had that dried-out quality that only comes from bakery goods that have been frozen.

The mac & cheese had a unique taste - I did taste it - and it was definitely above average and very good. It was not made with "yellow" cheese - it was made with "white" cheese (white cheddar, maybe?). Whatever it was, it was good!

I'm used to really good bakery products, also. We have a great bakery here in Cincinnati we use for many of our baked goods. I can always tell when something has been frozen when purchased elsewhere.

Thank you! It really does have a neat atmosphere, very cozy. Not sure I would go out of my way specifically to eat there, but if you happen to be in the DTD area and want to try something different, it's likely you could get an ADR.

I agree about the portions. This was our first time eating at TS restaurants. We found some of the portion sizes totally huge (T-Rex immediately comes to mind), and others ridiculously small. The TS desserts were *always* large, however.

Hope you had fun baking cookies!

Kona Cafe Breakfast 09/19

Wednesday, September 19 - Breakfast at Kona Cafe at The Poly

First Impressions: What a cute little cafe! All the employees, including the podium staff, were smiling and friendly. This restaurant is very clean and offers an "open air" view out into a lobby on the second level of the Polynesian Resort. There is a gift shop across the lobby as well.


This was one restaurant where I had decided what I was going to order long before we ever came to Disney. The Macadamia Nut Pancakes had been calling my name for quite some time! My husband had also decided long ago he would be ordering the Big Kahuna. We placed our orders (I drank water, he drank chocolate milk), and they arrived promptly.


My order of Macadamia Nut Pancakes was huge! I had ordered it without pineapple sauce and with the macadamia nut butter on the side. I had also substituted scrambled eggs in place of the salty breakfast meat.

This was one meal where I was going to try and "go it on my own" without speaking to a chef. As a diabetic, you always have to try and balance carbs and protein. I figured I could eat a little of the pancakes and fill up with the scrambled eggs. This was a huge mistake.

One bite of the pancakes, and I knew there was sugar in the batter. They were so overpoweringly sweet to me - there was no way I could eat them. The macadamia nut butter was also overly sweet. Two bites in, and I had to ask to speak to the chef.

The chef came out quickly (regrettably, I forgot to write down his name). He explained softly to me that yes indeed, the pancake batter does have sugar in it, as does the butter. I was so bummed! He said if pancakes were really what I wanted, he could make special gluten-free pancakes for me and add macadamia nuts to them. That would eliminate the sugar-sweetened batter, I could use sugar-free syrup, and he would bring me regular butter. SWEET! He also re-made my eggs without salt.

To say I loved the pancakes would be an understatement. They were so, so good! It was hard to eat only a small portion of them, but I did my best to restrain myself! Even my husband liked the allergy pancakes I had better than his own. I did not enjoy the scrambled eggs, however. They had a chunky quality to them and though they were cooked through, they were very mushy.

Rating for Special Order Allergy Macadamia Nut Pancakes:


As mentioned, my husband ordered the Big Kahuna. He ordered his eggs over easy, and no ham. He said the stand out for this meal was easily the French toast. He enjoyed the sausage and the bacon and thought both were cooked just right. While he said there was nothing wrong with his pancakes, he liked mine better. He mentioned to me later in the trip this was the only breakfast that he left satisfied and not still hungry.

Rating for the Big Kahuna:


Total Cost of Meal: $26.59 (OOP)


Rating of Quality of Service:


Final Thoughts: I was out of sorts this morning, so I failed to get the names of the chef or our waitress. We had very good service, and the chef was nice and more than willing to work with my dietary needs. Definitely worth making the trip to the Poly.

We thought this meal was a good value for the money, especially since we planned ahead to pay OOP. Considering our QS breakfast at Sassagoula's was only $3.50 less, I'd say this meal was very good value, taking into account the portion sizes versus the cost. I'm not sure I would use TS credits here, however, especially if you were trying to "max out" the value of the dining plan.

Aw, you had such an opposite experience at Boatwrights from what we had last year. I also ordered the tenderloins and thought they were pretty big, and the service was very nice - not rushed at all. Our waitress described the pasta with the tenderloins as 'adult mac&cheese' because it's made with white cheddar, not the neon orange powdered stuff most Americans are used to.

We were also on the DDP that trip and the only restaurant I recall that insisted we order dessert at the same time as our entree was Coral Reef. I remember that our dinner at Boatwrights was particularly relaxed - the cornbread came as soon as we were seated but we had nice spacing between ordering the entree, eating, and ordering dessert (which led me to eat far too much cornbread, of course). My only complaint with Boatwrights was the bread pudding dessert was dry, but that was my own fault for ordering it the night after I'd had bread pudding at Ohana. NOTHING compares to Ohana's bread pudding.

That is so great that the chef accomodated your requests (and that it was soooo good) at Kona - my all time favorite breakfast restaurant!! Sorry the scrambled eggs weren't that great but it sounds like overall it was a good experience.

As for Boatwrights... I like reading reviews like yours because it is on my someday list. Sounds like the prime rib would be a better choice.

I've never been to T-Rex but your positive review has me wondering if I can fit another DTD dinner in future dining plans.

I've enjoyed hearing all about the snacks and all the other CS meals as well.
