Pacific Warf Cafe
Breakfast crouissant with fresh fruit - very good

Salinas Turkey Sandwhich with chips - sandwhich good, a bit too much bread though, chips were greasy and not tasty but that's not disney's fault

Carnation Cafe
Crouissant chicken club with fresh fruit

Half soup half sandwhich - turkey sandwhich loaded baked potato soup, both were excellent.


And for those wondering if the sail on the cookie boat at Blue Bayou is edible:

We ate there this week and it was horrible. The food was cold, the rice and meat were dry and even the guacamole was dark and tasteless. The worst experience we had.

Why should I sail with any of you? Four of you have tried to kill me in the past... one of you succeeded.

Hopefully this isn't a repeat picture? But a lot of them aren't showing up for me right now - so I can't see the whole thread Anyway, here's the cookie boat DB and I shared from Blue Bayou! (Which is my favoritest restaurant ever) And a bonus picture inside the restaurant itself - without flash!

Oh - and the sail/mast on the cookie boat IS edible, but tastes like nothing! Hard as a rock. It's NOT meant to be eaten, even if it technically can be. Try a nibble - it's like wood.

Oh what a bummer! We ate there (same meal, minus the crisps) in early December and it was really good!

I got pictures from two meals this trip.

We had a late breakfast at Storyteller's, which meant the buffet. They stop serving off the menu at their last breakfast seating, which they didn't tell me when making the PS, and I really wanted to order off the menu. Sniffle sniffle.

But we made the best of it.

They asked if DS wanted "Mickey waffles and pancakes". That meant Mickey waffles and normal pancakes, for the record. We got some fruit and a croissant for him, too. He ate more than I think we've ever seen him eat at once, so he must have liked it!

DH and I had basically the same things from the menu...scrambled eggs, DH had an omelette with cheese, jalapeno, and tomato (in Sept he had just jalapeno and cheese in an omlette at PP, lol). They had vegetarian "sausage", which was a lovely surprise. Chocolate croissant, fruit, potatoes... And coffee, yum, coffee. The server told me, with a hint of glee, that it was a special restaurant blend of Nescafe, and that no one ever believes them b/c it's good coffee. No one believes me, either, but that's what she told me!

Pictures of remnants, lol.








Cafe Orleans. DS had the Mickey waffles again, with fruit. I had the Cafe Scrambled Eggs without bacon (we're all veggie, so if I forget to mention it, we never have the meat), DH had the Three-Cheese "Monte Cristo" French Toast, and then we shared the Mickey Shaped Beignets with raspberry
coulis and creme anglaise.

I liked the eggs, but they didn't feel/taste quite "real". I actually had the same problem at Storyteller's, but it was more pronounced at Cafe Orleans. It might just be because at home we eat organic, free range eggs that are as fresh as possible, and they taste far better than the regular eggs, so I can only imagine that restaurant-level eggs are even less good.

Robert liked the french toast, but ignored me when I told him that even die-hard eaters have a hard time finishing it. He tends to eat fast, especially when he thinks he's being "naughty" (lifelong food issues, poor guy), so he didn't realize that it was going to feel so bad in his stomach until he had scarfed it down. EAT SLOWLY when you get that dish. The compote it comes with made him happy, because it combines to cut the "sharp" of the cheese and the sweet of the french toast.

DS liked the waffles, and the fruit.

And I liked the coffee.

Forgot I had this one! Chocolate whatchamacallit cake from Ariel's Grotto! Soooo good. DB forked into his first, and the look of contentment on his face was priceless

Sorry to hear that. Our food was actual fantastic! My DH isn't a huge Mexian food fan and he even loved it. It was really cold and windy that day and our food was still warm, eventhought we were eating outside. I just love those Mickey Crisps!

We got a mickey pretzel at Bengal BBQ, as just one place that has 'em.

Found it to be rather nasty, but DS seemed to like it.

Fairy_Tale_Bride I like how you did your pictures, with the sign first. How was all that food, besides being pretty?
