Ain't Nobody Got Time For That, Well We Got Time To Eat -Sci Fi! - 12/30

Welcome to my dining review!
I am currently writing a full trip report, but wanted to be able to do a dining review as well, because stalking the dining reviews is how I decide what I want to do!



This is us, a couple of 20 something year olds from Maine. We both LOVE to eat, but in the last few months have done a real makeover of our diets. You will see how sometimes we are successful at sticking to it at Disney, and sometimes not so much!

Where we ate:
Liberty Tree Tavern (D)
The Mara (B)
Columbia Harbor House (L)
Aloha Island
Lunching Pad
Be Our Guest Part 2 (D)
SunShine Seasons (B)

Liberty Tree Tavern




Last time we tried to go to Liberty Tree Tavern I ended up sick in the bathroom from a migraine. This time I am VERY happy to report that I got to eat!

We arrived about a half hour early for our 6:45 reservation, but were seated after only a short wait.

As we were seated I was given the bill of fare



Our server Eric seemed a little overwhelmed with the large party seated next to us, and the large family across the room. However, he did keep our meal moving which was good!

I ordered a glass of milk, and Josh got a Coke.

We started with Declaration Salad! Tossed mixed greens with house-made dressing




I was good and ate a full serving of salad!

As we were enjoying our salad we were brought rolls and honey butter. Josh ate 6 of these&.




Once we were finished with the rolls and salad the rest of the food came!
Patriot's Platter - Roasted turkey breast, carved beef, and sliced pork, with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, herb-bread stuffing and macaroni and cheese

Mac and Cheese.




This was good, but not the best thing on the table. I had some, and so did Josh, but mine is better!

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy






SO GOOD. I love mashed potatoes and gravy. These were really good too, and nice and creamy.

Green Beans




I love how these were cooked with garlic, and were still crispy. So yummy!

Roasted Vegetables




We really enjoyed these. They really had a roasted taste to them, and it were fantastic.

The meat platter (surrounded by the rest!)




This is where I like to over eat! I LOVED the turkey and stuffing! The beef, and the ham were both good as well! I love to cover the turkey in gravy and the stuffing was full of flavor!

Of course we finished our meal with the house dessert!
Johynny Appleseed's Cake -Tavern made white cake filled with apples and Craisins dried cranberries, topped with ice cream




THIS WAS SO GOOD.
I know not everyone loves this, but the cake was sweet but not too sweet, and you cant go wrong with vanilla ice cream!

The total cost before tip for this meal was 68.14.

We LOVE this place and will be back!

The Mara

This morning’s breakfast was an out of pocket purchase. We had gotten the dining plan, so we were both able to get coffee for free!

I got the kid’s Mickey waffles a steal at just 4.99




This came with fruit, bacon, waffles and a small juice!



As always they were amazing. I am not the biggest waffle person, but something about Mickey makes these so much better. I like to slather them in butter.

Josh got a croissant sandwich. At $5.99 it sure didn’t break the bank!




Josh says this was messy, but really good. The croissant was cut really weird, so the sandwich didn’t really want to stay together which made it a challenge to eat.

We also shared a banana that was $1.50. I am a bit disappointed that fruit is that expensive for a single serve piece. It wasn’t even that expensive at the airport!

We love the Mara, and it appears several more times in this trip!
