Finally got my own way - TR - 17.10.12

Wednesday 17th October

We had a lie-in this morning after all the fun of the previous night! We had a 1pm lunch reservation for Le Cellier in Epcot, so we headed straight there!

The setting is beautiful, however inside the restaurant felt very claustrophobic. We were sat at the back in the corner along a row of 4 tables of 2. There was very little space between each table, so it felt a bit too close for comfort. In my opinion anyway.

But the food was delicious! I had the chocolate raspberry shake for drink, the famous filet mignon for main and the chocolate “moose” for pudding.







Tom had the maple crème brulee for pudding, and said it was the best one he’d had whilst away!

Off to finish what we had started in FutureWorld. The Seas with Nemo was actually really cute – it tells the story, kind of, by projecting the pictures onto/into real tanks of fish!





As we exited, we walked straight into a Turtle Talk show with Crush. This is where Crush talks to the audience, and then audience can ask questions. This was so funny; it was the classic type of “aimed at kids, but funny for adults on a different level too” humour!





We did Journey into Imagination with Figment next, which I don’t think we’ve done before. It was okay, a nice little ride. Then over to Captain EO; one of Disney’s more obscure shows. I don’t remember it being that awful!

Last but not least…



Eek! I won’t lie, I was scared! I don’t like spinning, and I really didn’t want to be poorly for the rest of the day. It was actually really good – I definitely felt it spin, which gave amazing G-forces, but I did feel a bit dizzy during the rest of the ride. I would do it again though!

So, as we hadn’t eaten for a while (on purpose!), it was time to hit the Food and Wine Festival!

So, we had Swedish Meatballs and Lingonberries from Scandinavia


Chicken Satay with Spiced Peanut Sauce and Pickled Vegetables from China


Seared Filet of Beef with Smashed Sweet Potatoes and Braai Sauce from South Africa


Cheese selection – Cheddar, Brie and Blue Cheese


Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll from Germany


Kielbasa and Potato Pierogie with Caramelised Onions and Sour Cream from Poland


Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine Lobster Roll


Shrimp Ceviche with Fire Roasted Vegetables, Fried Plantains and Cilantro from Florida


And a Floridian beer…


Seared Sea Scallop with Red Curry Puree and Apple Radish Salad from New Zealand


Belgian Chocolate Seashell Truffles


Escargots (Garlic and Parsley Snails in Brioche) from France


Continued...

And also a Cosmo Slush…


Cheddar Cheese Soup from Canada


Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki from Greece


Dark Chocolate Moose with Chilli and Salted Caramel


Warm Chocolate Lave Cake with Baileys Ganache from Ireland


And a little something to watch the fireworks with – a Sparkling Pomegranate Kir, and a Stella Artois!







Lots of food photos; we had such a brilliant day! Most of the food was really good, only a couple of things just weren’t to our taste! We actually used all of our snack credits on the Festival, but we had planned to do so and it worked out fabulously! It definitely pays to factor in a meal in order to tour the Festival.



Next – Finishing up in Hollywood Studios!

Your holiday looks fantastic! I remember you planning this when I went back in May. We loved staying at CSR and are hoping to go back to both WDW and CSR this year. I've definitely got a few ideas from your trip report too

Wow, you certainly went for it at F&W! We were there at the same time actually and we also spent most, if not all, of our snack credits at the booths. We also spent a fortune on cocktails and beer.

I'm really enjoying reading your report, looking forward to more!
