They sell that at the Pacific Wharf in DCA. It's one of my favorites! I prefer it over the soups they also sell in the bread bowls.

Nice research. Aha, it is the dreaded trans-fat. I (so far) have only tried and loved the smooth orange tigger tail. I am encouraged by the fact that your family loved the sparkly orange tigger tail. I will definitely test the new one out next week.

I LOVE the picture of Tigger clocking your tigger tail and checking to make sure he still has his!!
I don't usually watch the cartoon show called American Dad (I think that's what it's called) but saw an episode about trans fats...he was getting his son to bicycle into the next state and smuggle trans fat back to deepfry in....it was pretty funny!
It makes me really wonder....they still allow cigarette smoking, but are outright banning trans fats here in Canada, and the US by the looks of it..... it must be really bad for you!! I guess we'll probably find out just how bad in another 10 years or so when it catches up to us all!

new drinks at the WCT lounge....

This friends, is the Kentucky Peach Cocktail. It came just like you see it in the photo; it had a lemony-sprite taste. I could defiantly taste the bourbon and the mint in it. It was not too sweet but not to strong either, and very refreshing! I think it also could come in a non alcoholic version also..

this is a new drink to their menu, they have changed the menu of drinks. Lots..i mean lots of new drinks and yummy martini's--so far this one and the Key lime martini was my favorite, matt had the black cherry something or other when we went-- i think he liked it. anyhow, if you like cocktails you will need to try the new ones from the new menu!

I ordered it from the WCT Lounge(up the stairs next to wine bar and to the right!)

Is it bad that I made it through this entire thread in 24 hours!?

We're WDW vets, fairly new to DL, having been twice just this year. We're going again in December and taking my dad with us. We'll be there the 9-13. When does the seasonal menu price increase go into effect?

Our hotel includes a ridiculously awesome, HUGE breakfast buffet, so we're only doing lunches and dinners in the parks.

We like Carnation Cafe a lot, so that's on the schedule for sure. Plus corndogs from the cart on Main Street. Might go back to Jazz Kitchen Express on a non-park day, since we liked the food there quite a bit. Based on pics and reviews, I'm considering Cafe Orleans, Pizza Port (chicken fusili), Taste Pilot's Grill and Pacific Wharf. Not to mention various snacks. Wish we had more days so we could try even more!

I'm wondering what the weather is like in mid-December. Will we be comfortable eating outside, even in the evenings? Will we want hot food at every meal?

TIA!

Marciemouse- we have eaten outside in december on many trips and been perfectly fine- but we have also been there in Nov/Dec and been freezing or had it rain, so you never know.

Thanks for all the pictures everyone! I will take some more on my trip soon and add them when I get back

Well, based on the crazy weather LA has been having it's hard to predict what it will be like when you go. You can go to weather.com and look at typical temperatures for December but it's still too early to predict. Generally if you are seated outside, in December after dark, unless they have heat lamps, it will be a bit chilly. That is my experience anyway.

As for hot meals...well again that really depends on lots of things: if it's wet, your eating preferences, etc. We normally have a light breakfast, snack at lunch and then sit down for a real dinner.

Hope that helps.

The weather is hard to predict in Dec. Could be chilly or warm. Last week it was in the 100's and today it's cold and raining so it's highly changeable.

Whether or not you'll want a hot mea will depend on what your eating habits are. I like to eat breakfast in the room and then have a either a counter service lunch and sit down dinner or vice-versa. I love Cafe Orleans, the monte cristo is a must for me on every trip. The chicken fusilli you mentioned at RRPP is wonderful! It was this thread that tipped me off and last time I had it and it was great. Highly recommend that. Even if it's chilly, just bundle up and it's still fun to eat outside unless it's really pouring rain.

As others have said it's hard to predict the weather lately, but I have been a few times in Dec and had no problem with eating outside. I have also seen the outdoor heaters at some of the places in DTD. I don't recall in actually in DL or DCA though.

Liesel while at Cafe Orleans did you happen to see or get the pewter figurine that they are giving with purchase? No one here on the Dis seems to mention it and I am wondering if it is still available.
