Beth - it all looks so yummy.

That soup looks to die for. I can't wait to try it. And the funnel cake, mmmmm. How was the turkey sandwich on pretzel bread?

The soup IS to die for. This was my first time trying it and OMG, I loved it! Ruben did too and he's picky.

The kids loved the funnel cake with brownie, while I prefered the original one with just powdered sugar.

And the sandwich was really good. I wasn't sure about the pretzel bread. I didn't really know what that was, but it was good. Thick, but not dry. I'd recommend it.

I agree! I love this thread too! It is a happy thread! I think part of the reason I appreciate it so much, other than being tempted to try things at DLR that I didn't know existed, is that so often, if I am ravenous, I will scarf down my food without taking the time to really look at it or appreciate the presentation of what is on my plate. Or if I am involved in a conversation with someone, I am eating but barely paying attention to what is on the fork. This thread really celebrates the food and the overall festive and magical touches that DLR puts into their treats and lets me really admire their handiwork without stuffing my face!

Question about the baked potato soup- is the bacon just on top, or in the soup itself? I wonder if I could get them to leave it off.

Not that great in my opinion. I've never had the Village Haus ones though, so can't compare.

Oh, man! I knew there was a reason I wanted to eat at Carnation Cafe! ALL of this food is right up our alley! I wish we hadn't missed it! It was just sooo hot the day we planned to eat there, that I couldn't stand to be outside any longer. If I had known/remembered about these menu items, I may have changed my mind!

I can't remember if the bacon was mixed in the soup, but I have seen the recipe they use, and it calls for sauteeing the veggies in bacon fat, so it's probably not a veg-friendly dish.

I just wanted to say that every course we had was excellent. My favorite was the pumpkin ravioli with free range turkey. The flavors were so distict and strong. A sense of "Thanksgiving meal" came over me when I ate it.

Oh, I had the Vintner's Table menu with wine pairings.
This is our fourth time dining here in five years and everything is so impressive and delicious.

Next up, our lunch at Ariel's and the princesses....
