Yes, they were very good. If we had a longer trip, I would definitely have gotten them again.

Definitely try R&C! We really enjoy it there. I like the short ribs at Chefs but I don't love them like DS. He is not really a potatoes guy and would rather have pasta with anything so that is probably why they work for him.

Great review of Chefs
I didn't realise that Remy was at dinner, I thought it was just lunch
Yes, it is! I didn't think we would see Remy either. Our original ADR was for 6:00 but we checked in around 5. It was his last pass thru of the day.

Your Catdog is such a pretty furbaby.

I am also following along with your dining review. Love the AoA pics. We really enjoy Rose and Crown it is one of our favorites.

That is exactly what Tig does with the woman who care for him when we are all away. Thanks for following along!

Wonderful reviews of Rose & Crown and Chefs de France.

Both looked like good meals!


I love how you snuck some pictures of others meals. The cheese plate actually looks pretty good.

the scotch egg is intriguing but I am not a HUGE fan of hard-boiled eggs so I'm not sure how that would go over for me.

The onion soup at Chefs is really good and pretty filling as well!

On Sunday morning we once again didn’t get up as early as we had hoped but we eventually made it to the MK. Started off the morning with a breakfast of beignets.



These were tasty and hit the spot. A little doughier than other beignets I have had but they were still good.

Did some of the Fantasyland rides …





We eventually made our way over to Be Our Guest for lunch. We had just an awful experience for dinner last November during the Passholder’s preview. Definitely the worst meal we had ever had in Disney and possibly the worst meal we had ever had. But reviews on the Dis have been good so I convinced Andrew that we needed to try it again for lunch. Also prepared him that we may have to wait in a crazy long line. The line wasn’t actually too bad. About a half hour from getting in line until we were seated and waiting for our food.

We started with the soups - French Onion Soup $4.99 and Potato Leek Soup $4.49



These were much better than they were in November. The French Onion had a good flavor and the Potato Leek was nice and smooth, not grainy like it was the last time. A good start!

We decided to share two sandwiches – the Grilled Steak Sandwich - with garlic butter spread and pommes frites $11.99



And the Croque Monsieur - Grilled sandwich of carved ham, Gruyere cheese, and bechamel with Pommes Frites. $10.99



We were both pleased with the sandwiches. The steak was nice and tender with a good flavor and the Croque Monsieur was a decent ham and cheese sandwich. I preferred the steak while Andrew preferred the ham.

For dessert we got the Lemon Meringue Cupcake - Vanilla sponge cake, lemon custard filling, flamed merinque icing and crunch $2.99 and the Chocolate Cream Puff - filled with chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream $2.99



We were both too full to enjoy these. I cut them both in half and we tried the middles. The lemon was good, nothing special but decent. The cream puff had more of a dark chocolate filling than milk. I think I would have really enjoyed it if I wasn’t so full.

Next up, the storm that changed all of our plans!

Thank you! Both were very good. The egg isn't the prominent taste ... not with the sausage & the lucious sauce! Give it a try one day ...

Great reviews!! DH & I both want to try the scotch egg @ R&C. But we really disliked the counter service. [we got a hair in our fries ] So it's a silly reason to be scared to try TS there but still not sure w/ all the Epcot choices. Any ways my Q for you is do you like Chefs de France or Rose & Crown better over all? Thanks.

Ewww! I don't like the QS fish & chips either. I would definitely choose R&C, as much for the atmosphere as the food. I just asked DS and he said Chefs. So I guess we are no help!

Glad that you were brave enough to return to BOG! The steak sandwich looks really good. Friends that we met up with at WDW last time said the cheese sandwich at BOG was so salty. We currently have a dinner reservation but I may need to give it up so if we have to switch to a lunch it is good to know that there are things on the menu that I would love to try!

At least you can say that you've tried beignets!

Yes, I am very glad we gave BoG a try for lunch. I didn't even try to get a dinner ADR for August ...not sure we are ready for that yet!

We had beignets in Disneyland and loved them! They were much better than the ones in the MK. Lighter from what I remember.

So Sunday afternoon the plan was for me to find a spot on Main Street to watch the parade while Andrew used fastpasses for Space. It looked like rain so I was happy when we found a bunch under an awning. We had some time before the FPs so Andrew hung with me. And then the rains came!



We had a balloon seller with us and we were helping her hold on to the balloons!



There was an actual river running down Main Street!



We were absolutely soaked. When the wind blew the rain at us, it felt like a bucket of ice water was being thrown at us. We knew we had to head back to AoA to change and unfortunately had to cancel our planned meet at the Poly with Barb (jabead) and family.

Rain let us a bit so we ran to the buses. Just as we got to the Resort, it opened up again. Lightning, wind. Torrential rain. So what to do? Have second lunch!

Pulled Pork Sandwich for Andrew ...



Make your own Salad for me ...



The pulled pork was delicious! Just the right amount of sweetness & tang. Not fatty at all. Very good. My salad was pretty tasty as well. I had most of the veggies they had (no onions or corn for me!) with chicken and blue cheese dressing. It really hit the spot.

And for dessert ... we decided to try the gelato ...



Nutella for Andrew ...



Mango for me ...



Both were very good. Nice and creamy. I was surprised that Andrew's did taste just like frozen nutella. And there were nice mango chunks in mine.

So a complete change in plans but overall a fun afternoon. Plan was to shower & blow dry our shoes before heading back to the MK for a quick dinner. But as we were walking to the buses, Andrew called an audible and we headed to EPCOT instead!
