So sorry you had a disappointing experience at LTT. It certainly sounds like not only your server, but the kitchen was having a bad day. We've been very lucky with each of our visits, my husband had the Pilgrim's Feast in October and declared it his favourite meal of the trip. I'm glad dessert saved things a little for your family, that Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is decadent!

I'm sorry you had a poor experience at LTT. It's amazing how much a poor or disinterested server can impact your meal.

I hope you give this place another try - it was one of our favorite lunches on our last trip! Just double-check and make sure you don't have the same server next time.

I want to go to LTT just for the cake... The rest of the menu doesn't really appeal to me but that cake.... It looks so horribly wonderful!

I have to admit, I'm rethinking LTT now after reading your review.....for "meh", its a lot of money to spend on a meal..... I'm so glad you posted this.
We enjoyed LTT in the past (we had been there 1 other time), so we were just amazed at the difference between the 2 visits. LTT is definately out of rotation for our Oct trip, but I'm willing to give it a try again.

Definately give it a try. We have been there 1 other time and enjoyed it. I hope it was just an "off" day and the quality of the restraunt is not taking a downfall.

It looks as though the recipe and the presentation have changed, which doesn't sound like a bad thing. Too bad about the veggie burger; I hope it doesn't curb your child's enthusiasm about all veggie burgers! Most are quite good I've found.

Thanks so much to all for the help posting the links! Your advice worked beautifully.
EEEK...grayish orange crab dip??

We were definately happy that the desserts were having a stellar day and were amazing -- so we at least ended on a high note.

Glad the advice posting links worked

Yes, it was not a great meal -- not the worst of the trip as you will find out later though Thankfully the desserts saved the day!

We will definately give LTT another try. Its definately out for our Oct trip since we will focus on F&W mostly, but perhaps next year we will give it a try again. I will need that Ooey Gooey Toffee cake again by that time!!

Chef Mickey - Dec 21 - 730pm

On the evening of December 21, we had a 730pm ADR for Chef Mickey.

We had to be out of MK by 7pm as the last MVMCP of the year was taking place that night. Bo wanted to just ride the monorail over instead of walking.

We arrived at CR just a few minutes after 7pm, and after checking out the holiday decorations, we went and checked in about 720pm. They handed us our buzzer and sent us over for our picture. Afterwards, we went to sit down and just a few moments later our buzzer was going off. We were seated about 745pm.

Our waitress came by and took our drink orders and told us to hold off since Minnie was only 2 tables away. After Minnie we had a few minutes before the next round of characters would be by.

I helped Jaxon get his plate and there was a line of people, so I apologize that again, I do not have buffet pictures.

My plate was NOT very exciting -- I warn you now!! There was not a whole lot that sounded good (until I got to the dessert area )

My plate consisted of...BBQ chicken, carrots, parmesean mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets and a roll. I was so ashamed of my plate (and quickly inundated by characters) that I did not get a picture of my exciting plate until after I had already eaten some. Apologies!!

The BBQ chicken was just ok - a bit dry in my opinion. The mashed potatoes were good. The macaroni and cheese was fine. The carrots were fine. The chicken nuggets were fine. The roll was ok.

I see you all rushing out to book ADRs right now with my stellar review

No, I wasnt expecting much with this meal. We were doing it for the kids. They had a great time and thats all that mattered.



Thankfully the desserts were good!!

My dessert plate Oreo "mouse", carrot cake, banana cream pie, bread pudding. I didnt care for the Oreo "mouse" (but I am wishy-washy on chocolate), but I did enjoy the carrot cake, banana cream pie and bread pudding.



Bo's dessert plates Oreo "mouse", banana cream pie & I cant remember (and didnt write down what that other one was) & then a plate of bread pudding.





I dont have the receipt for this meal, so I cant provide an accurate total. 6 TS credits used.

Would we return?? For the characters, yes. For the food, well...I guess as long as my kids request this meal we will have to find something here to eat. I think we may try breakfast next time though.

Since this review was lacking much substance, I will do another review tonight, which will be Kona.

I have to say, we ate at Chef Mickeys for breakfast and my review would sound like yours, except for the desserts that don't exist at breakfast. We had great character interaction and a wonderful server, however a lot of the food was sub par!

By the way, I'm so stoked for Kona Cafe as that's on my list of possibilities for our summer trip this year!

Kona breakfast is great -- highly recommended! That review is coming up right now!!

Kona - Dec 22 - 905am

On Saturday Dec 22, we had a 905am ADR at Kona.

We arrived right at 905am and had to wait a few minutes before we were seated.

We were shown to our table, and Chris was our waiter. He came by right away and told us he would be with us shortly (the place was PACKED!!).

Chris came back a few minutes later and took our drink orders. Hunter and I ordered Lilikoi juice, Bo ordered Kona press pot (OOP), Harper, Jaxon & Evan all had chocolate milk.

For our entrees, Hunter & I both ordered Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with Strawberry Compote choice of ham, bacon, or sausage. We both ordered ours with ham. I only use a small portion of the strawberry compote to avoid it being too sweet.

SOOOOO DELICIOUS!! Breakfast perfection on a plate!!



Bo ordered Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes - with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and your choice of ham, bacon or sausage. He ordered this with a side of ham also. He gave this a big -- I agree it is good, but I dont think I could ever stray from Tonga Toast.



Harper ordered French Toast - with choice of ham, bacon or sausage. She ordered this with sausage. She ate quite a bit of this.



Jaxon had Mickey Pancakes - buttermilk pancakes shaped like you-know-who. We ordered fresh fruit for his side. This was a lot of food for a 4 year old, so he ate the 2 small pancakes and a few bites of of the big pancake and most of the fruit.



Evan had Minnie's French Toast - rolled in cinnamon sugar. We ordered the side of fresh fruit for him as well. He ate 1 1/2 pieces of the french toast and most of the fruit.



Kona Press Pot (be sure to get a to-go cup if you dont finish!! ). I dont drink coffee, so this was all for Bo. Again, this was paid for OOP.



Total for the meal (not including the Kona Press Pot) before the automatic 18% gratuity was $74.99. 6 TS credits used.

Kona is delicious! Probably my favorite breakfast

I am so excited for breakfast at Kona and the French Press Pot. I would love to try the Tonga toast, except I HATE bananas, so I am guessing it will be the pineapple pancakes for me

Kona is definately a favorite for breakfast for us

Since you dont like bananas, then yes, Tonga Toast would not be a good choice -- but those macadamia pancakes are very yummy too!

Hope you have a great experience there!

Tonga Toast is Ah-mazing! We didn't eat at Kona but we stayed at the Poly and had the Tonga Toast from Captain Cooks.

Sorry to hear about Chef Mickey's - we went for the characters and enjoyed but it was for breakfast which had a really good assortment for all the selective eaters in our group. I would highly recommend.

Maybe my expectations were too high for CM? Everyone raves about it, but we thought the food at CP and Cape May were much better. We'd do it again for the characters though.

Kona sounds delish! Both Tonga Toast and the Macadamia Pancakes sound amazing! Definitely adding this to our ADRs! Now how to chose which one to eat?

I had heard that Captain Cooks has Tonga Toast -- thats awesome if for some reason I ever crave it, but didnt book Kona.

I think we will try CM bkfst -- maybe this next trip this Fall. The character interaction is so fun.

We love CP and Cape May bkfsts too!

Definately add Kona to your ADRs!! We had the perfect blend since I wanted Tonga Toast and DH wanted the macadamia pancakes. I could get the item I really wanted, but still be able to get a bit of the other

I REALLY need to try Kona one of these days... although I would have a tough time picking between the Tonga Toast and the Macademia Pineapple Pancakes!

Everything looked very, very good.
