I don't know about the amount of sugar in grams. The drink itself is pretty sweet, but not sweeter than a fruit punch/Hi-C/Coke. You can't ask for no sugar added because the drink is poured from a pre-made pitcher at the restaurant. It would kind of like trying to ask for regular Coke without sugar. They don't pour any additional sugar into the cup before or after pouring the drink, if that's what you are wondering. They add ice to the cup, pour the drink, and then top it off with a couple of cherries.

So excited, making a last minute, like I booked the room yesterday and we leave tomorrow morning....trip! Can't wait to eat my way through the whole resort again!! I will once again take plenty of good food pictures, including the special items for Mardis Gras. Will be there for Valentines day, had to settle for Wine country Trattoria because everywhere else was fully booked. Even the waiting list at Napa was full. We have never eaten there before so I hope it is good. Maybe they will do something special for the day, the other restaurants have prix fix menus. I am going to call dining every day to see if something opens up somewhere else. Does anyone here like the Trattoria?

My family had eaten there a couple of times and we liked it alot. Good food, nice atmosphere. Hope you like it... or that something else you really want opens up.

I have two questions about Napa Rose...

1) Do you have to sit at the Vintner's table to order the Vintner's tasting menu?

2) How much should I tip? We will be a party of 2 both ordering the Vintner's tasting menu (we don't drink so no wine)... that's about $90 x2 (=$180ish)

Thanks!

I kind of wonder if it is because of a certain expectation
I'd say go for it!

1) No

2) Tip according to the service you receive. We normally tip 20% unless something was really bad - at Napa Rose, because we normally receive impeccable service, we will go as high as 30% or so. 15% should be a bare minimum, however.

Figment's Mardi Gras Celebration

Hi All - Well, Figment just got back from another trip to Disneyland. This time, he went to go see the Mardi Gras and Lunar New Year celebrations. Overall, the Mardi Gras celebrations was much better than Lunar New Year. As usual, his trip focused on food!

Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen - The trip started with dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney.
Bourbon Street Sampler - Fried calamari, meat pies, fried Parmesan artichoke hearts, coconut shrimp. As usual, everything tasted really good. Figment's favorites are still the calamari and artichoke hearts.


Creole Onion Soup - The soup had a kick to it!


Pasta Jambalaya - Lots of yummy seafood!


Panéed Chicken & Bercy - So good! The chicken is nice and crispy on the outside, with a very flavorful sauce.


Pecan Crusted Salmon - Nice and moist salmon with a slightly sweet pecan crust. Figment substituted the grits and they were very yummy.


Beignets - Always a favorite at Brennan's!


French Market - Laissez les bons temps rouler! There were a couple of really good offerings around New Orleans Square for Mardi Gras.
[/I]Shrimp Corn Fritters[/I] - crispy fritters with a fair amount of shrimp inside. The creole mustard dipping sauce was pretty good. The root vegetable slaw...well, not so much (but then again, Figgy's not a big root vegetable fan).



French Dip - Yummy!


Marinated Shrimp Salad Sandwich - Lots of big shrimps!


Firefly Mint Julep - A regular mint julep, but with a glow cube!


Mardi Gras cupcakes - There were two different cupcakes. One was a red velvet with a tower of purple and green frosting (not cream cheese based) (top) and the other was a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and cookie mask (bottom). Figment's favorite was the chocolate/chocolate mousse cupcake. So yummy!



Next time...Blue Bayou (for more Mardi Gras celebration), Jolly Holiday, Carthay Circle and much more!

Looking at this post makes me sad to think that I have no Disneyland trips in the future since now I live so far away
