Sorry your dish at LoF wasn't amazing. I worry about their ability to handle the crowds at a reasonable speed, while simultaneously offering fresh, well-prepared food. Hopefully they'll be able to adapt, now that the resort is fully open.

It was just the rice and the squash that wasn't good. Everything else was great !! Especially that ganache Mickey cake. I want another one of those with a nice hot cup of coffee. We loved the resort overall though !!

I agree the quick service in Mexico is quite good, I love their chips and salsa there. Great review of AOA, I haven't been there yet, but it looks so darn cute.

On this day, we headed to Captain Cooks to eat lunch.





DH was very frustrated with the computer ordering system.

DD got the kids chicken and French fries



Which apparently came with carrots instead.

DS ordered a hamburger



And DH and I split the

Aloha Pork Sandwich.



This was soooo good !!

Aloha Pork Sandwich - Pulled pork with BBQ sauce, pineapple cole slaw, cheddar cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes, served warm on a pineapple-coconut hoagie roll. Served with Polynesian chips. - $8.99
DH got French fries. I prefer the homemade chips. Anyway this sandwich is soooooo good. The combination of savory pork, gooey cheese and crunchy veggies is out of this world yummo !!

LOVED it !!

The kids got ice cream for dessert



And DH and I got the heavenly Dole Whip



Love this stuff !!!

Bellies full, we went to check out the lobby to check out the gift shop,















DD traded vinylmations. These two.



For these two.



After that we hopped on the monorail – or Avengorail

Yum - I really like Captain Cook's, and that pork sandwich is definitely on my radar now. Agreed that dole whips are awesome.

You need to try it !!! It is REALLY good !! I admit that the Dole Whips lured me over there, but the Aloha Pork sandwich was a surprise winner. And I am not sharing next time !! I just love those Dole Whips. I haven't tried the floats, but I really love it plain. I'm not sharing that next time either !!

Breakfast at Roaring Forks - Again

DH and I both got the Croissant Breakfast Sandwich



It was good as always.

DD went with her favorite of Mickey Waffles



And DS went with his current standby of pancakes



We really enjoyed our breakfasts at Roaring Forks. Everything was fresh, warm and tasty. Being the creatures of habit we are, we ate this same meal again.

How did I miss your previous update?! Your Capitan Cook's and MNSSHP reviews look so good!

I really want to try Roaring Forks as well, but we'll see if that happens on this trip.

Yes, we really liked Captain Cooks. DH was really frustrated with the ordering system, though. He says he knows they are trying to simplify things, but he feels like it just makes things more complicated because you can't ask questions.

We really enjoyed everything we got at Roaring Forks, I highly recommend. And since they cook them as you wait, they have the best Mickey waffles. Nice and warm and fresh. The pancakes were really good as well. Now if they would just do something about the coffee .......

Lunch in World Showcase - Day 6

As we were touring World Showcase, we were starting to get hungry and everyone wanted something from a different place. So we decided to roll with that.

DH wanted something from Germany.



So he went to Sommerfest which is the QS place in Germany and got a bratwurst

Bratwurst - served with sauerkraut and roll $6.69



It came with a pretzel



But instead of getting a soda, he sprang for a beer.



He said this meal was very good and he really enjoyed it. Later on in the day, we were all regretting he had eaten it. Apparently, sauerkraut makes DH's butt very happy and he was making us miserable later on in the room if you know what I mean. No more saurkraut for DH when we are in close quarters.

He and the kids were in Germany picking this up while I was scootering over to Morocco to get myself some lunch.



I really wanted to try the Shawarma platter that everyone had been raving about.

Our plan was to meet in the America Pavilion where the kids were getting something to eat. I gotta tell you, I got some really strange looks when I was scootering back towards the America pavilion with a tray full of food, but I arrived in one piece with only minimal spillage of my soda.

Here's what I had.

Shawarma Platters - served with side of Hummus, Tabouleh and a Tangierine Couscous Salad with fresh Moroccan bread
Chicken & Lamb Combo $13.99
Chicken $11.99
Lamb $12.99

I chose chicken



It came with a drink and some baklava



I really enjoyed this . The chicken had a lot of flavor and I really liked the fresh pita bread and the hummus. The couscous was just ok as was the tabouleh, but I really enjoyed the rest.

The kids went with the old standby.



Yep. Chicken nuggets. Again. DS discovered that instead of getting a soda and a dessert, you could combine them for a slushie. He was so proud of himself for discovering this.

Bellies full, we continued on with our exploration of the World Showcase.

I love the tabouleh at Tangierine Cafe (primarily because it tastes so strongly of parsley and lemon). And now I'm really in the mood for some baklava. Glad you had a good meal there overall!

I loved the Shawarma platter !! It could have used another piece of pita. Because I love pita and hummus. I am so getting that again !!

Dinner at Roaring Forks

We were exhausted, so DH and the kids went down to get the food and brought it back to the room.

I decided on a cheese flatbread



This hit the spot for me. It wasn’t too heavy and the crust had a nice crisp to it. It was just enough and exactly all I needed.

DH got this tuna sandwich thingy



I can see why he chose this because it looked so fresh and DH said it tasted as fresh as it looked and he really liked it.

The kids went with the old standby



DD fed some to her dolly



For dessert, we got Mickey bars and ice cream sandwiches.





DD wanted me to take a photo of the Halloween cup



Then we settled in to get some rest for the next day ahead. Animal Kingdom !!
