We were just there this past weekend and although I didn't take pics of everything here are a few.

This is the cookies you can buy and decorate at Big Thunder ranch.

This is the gingerbread:



And this is the Christmas tree



They also have a snowman. To be honest the cookies were really hard and not that great but the kids LOVE decorating them and they do come in a box so you can take them with you.

Then we had lunch at Cafe Orleans.

I had the monte cristo which I have already seen pics of so here is the kids pb&j monte cristo



And this is the seafood crepe which was excellent



And we got one each of the deserts to share. I got the beignets which are already on here and this is the chocolate crepe.



The beignets were good but I prefer the ones at Jazz Kitchen and the crepe was just ok. But I DID like Cafe Orleans. My sandwhich was great and we did get the chocolate coins and a collectible Jack Skellington coin. 3 in fact!

This has to be my all time favorite thread! Everything looks so yummy. Do the kids meals still come in those cute collectable containers?

??? This looks more like Plaza Inn and not Carnation Cafe. I don't think Carnation Cafe serves fried chicken, and it's a table service where they bring you your food, so there wouldn't be a tray.

Sorry it was not good, I love the chicken at Plaza Inn. We used to take a special trip over to Knott's Berry Farm for a fried chicken dinner. But once I tried it at Plaza Inn, we haven't been back to Knott's.

Where not to eat--sorry no pics!

I had a horrible meal at the BLUE BAYOU. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our table, The meal took an hour and fifteen minutes to be served, the management never visited our table, we had three servers who all seemed to not know what was going on, and we still had to pay $60 for our meal. It is a cool setting, but just see it from the ride. I would recomend the plaza over the Bayou anytime.

I would have to disagree. My DH and I had an amazing time we were told it would be a half hour wait for waterside table (we had reservations) but we were seated within five minutes. Our server was fabulous and made sure we were more than happy. Our view was nice and romantic and the food was unbelievable and it took no time after we ordered to get on our table. Our waiter told us to keep our menus and we were able to keep the treasure chest that came with our dessert. The BB experience was the best dining experience we had. It was so good we forgot to take pictures
Sorry you didn't have a good experience GoofyasGoofy. Did you have reservations? If you didn't that's probably why it took you so long to be seated?

Mimi's restaurant by HoJo's

I had the bacon and eggs which was so good I got this for breakfast everyday that we were able.

My DH had the oatmeal that he said was terrific, I don't like oatmeal so it doesn't look apetizing to me but he really liked it.

My mickey shaped pretzel. I was so excited to get this because I had never had one. It was dry and a bit too salty but I still really enjoyed it because it's shaped like mickey.

THAT PREZEL LOOKS AWSOME!!!!!

--and I had reservations, checked the morning of, and arrived half an hour before my reserv.

I am glad to hear that some had a good experience, but I will never return to the BB--It was that bad.

Food Pics from December 14-16

Chicken Soft Tacos from Rancho del Zocalo. Sadly they were greasy and dry at the same time. The beans and rice were good, but the tacos were quite gross.


Pumpkin Muffin from Blue Ribbon Bakery. Really tasty!


Gingerbread man and Hot Chocolate given during the Holiday Tour. Soo good.


Crab Salad Sandwhich from Cafe Orleans. Very good, but way over priced.


Pommes Frites from Cafe Orelans. Hot and crispy with garlic and a really tasty dipping sauce.


Chocolate Crossant from Blue Ribbon Bakery. Mm..chocolate


Fried chicken, mashed potatos and green beans from Plaza Inn. Excellent as always.

Tinkerbell Twist

Wow! I am getting hungry looking at all these pics of the great food. My suggestion: after you get yourself into a food coma from the beignets, fried chicken, etc...make sure you top it off with a Tinkerbell Twist from the Fantasia Freeze near the Matterhorn. If you like sour stuff, this is the drink for you: sour apple and sour watermelon slushee twisted together. It will perk you right up after all those greasy carbs!

I have to totally agree with you. We were there this past week and had a taste for something other than the usual so we decided to give Zocalo a try in spite of having read the reviews. I should've known better. DH ordered the carne asada which was dry and tasteless and his tortillas came cold, not very appetizing. I had the soft beef tacos which were disgustingly greasy and ugly. The sides were fine except for the guacamole that was too thin, running down. Very weird. I didn't expect it to be so bad. I was very disappointed, indeed.
