That cheese appetizer looked really good but I guess I'll never have it...most of the food on the menu at 50's Prime Time just turns my stomach...too heavy and down-homie I guess. I'm like Randy from A Christmas Story - I hate meatloaf!!

Can I offer a suggestion for those of you who like ice wine? If you like a good martini try an ice wine martini - they are the bomb!

Thanks for the update, Stacey!

The fried cheese was good. But I agree with you, when I go out to eat I want to order something different than what I can fix at home. I had never heard of ice wine before Le Cellier. It must be great though.

Yes, I did like Mama Melrose's food better. We were there with a group of 17. One member of our group (an adult) had a big meltdown and embaressed the fool out of the rest of the party. Also, about 3 weeks before we went on that trip Joshua was very sick--Rota Virus -then another illness on top of that-first round of of astham medicine at 8mths-we had our final planning meeting with all the families. He wanted a chip and we thought the salt would proabably do him good--it was a cool ranch dorito--anyway a minute after he finished 1 chip I noticed red marks all by his lip and face--he neer moved the chip from his mouth--well then his lips started swelling--he was allergic to the chip. I gave him medicine and watched him and about 30 min. he was fine. Well at Mama Melrose he decided to swipe a piece of lettuce from my plate. Well by the time I noticed he was chewing something his lips were already redder and swelling--he was allergic to the vinegrette. Again--we wathced him and gave lots of fluids and he was fine. So our whole experience there was a little off and we would still go back. THere desserts were fine.

We go to bed Christmas Eve with this on and at some point Christmas morning the kids have it back on. I plan on being there around 3:45. I will ask for you when I get there. Thanks.

Day Seven - Friday: Cosmic Ray's, Enchanted Grove, and Casey's at MK

I think I have put this one off because it is the last day. But once I finish this one I can start on the trip report! We checked out Friday morning and the original plan was to stay until about lunch. But we had not seen the fireworks yet… so we decided to stay until closing. What the heck, it is only a 9 hour drive home! We did not have any TS left on the DDP. We had adrs for breakfast at CP, but we did not wake up in time to make it. So we arrived at MK at about 10:00. We headed to Sleepy Hollow for breakfast – funnel cakes again!

Lunch – Cosmic Ray’s

I had read about Cosmic Ray’s and knew I wanted to eat here. The kids ordered chicken strips and fries – I did not take pics of this, looks like all the other ones! DH and I split a chicken and rib combo with carrots and fries (instead of potatoes) and chocolate cake. The chicken and ribs were very good, better than Flame Tree. However, I did like Flame Tree’s BBQ sauce better. The carrots were good too. I wanted the mashed potatoes, but I compromised and got fries. The chocolate cake was rich with lots of frosting!





DMIL got the chicken platter with carrots and mashed potatoes. DFIL ordered the ribs with carrots and mashed potatoes. The potatoes were good. The ordered the carrot cake and both said it was very good. The frosting looked good.





We all enjoyed Cosmic Ray’s. There is a large selection here and a huge fixings bar. This is my favorite CS at MK. So it receives an A.

Here is the infamous Sonny Eclipse. We all enjoyed his corny jokes and songs.



For snack, half of us went to Aloha Isle for Dole Whips and half of us went to the Enchanted Grove in Fantasyland. My DS got a pineapple/vanilla swirl, which was very good. DH got a pineapple float again and said he wished he had gotten a float with the swirl instead. DD and I both got Strawberry Swirls from Enchanted Grove. Sorry, Dole Whip fans – I liked this better! It was like eating one of those yummy strawberry bars mixed with vanilla ice cream! Dole Whips are good too, but I love strawberry ice cream, so this was my favorite! A



Dinner – Casey’s Corner

We all ordered the ¼ pound grand slam all beef hot dogs. They have a good fixings bar with cheese sauce. If you like chili cheese dogs, I recommend ordering a side of chili and splitting it. Three of us made chilidogs with one side of chili. DD also put chili and cheese sauce on her fries. We ate outside on the ground so we could watch the fireworks. We had some rather aggressive, hungry ducks join us for dinner.





Casey’s was good. I am not a big hotdog eater, but every now and then a good hotdog hits the spot. I would definitely eat here again. B

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed eating during this vacation. I would say my favorite meal was (this is tough) Boma. I really liked trying all the different food. Best steak of the week was Le Cellier – the Teriyaki Steak at Kona was a close second though. The best dessert was Ohana. DH’s favorite meal was Kona. Best appetizer was the shrimp at Ohana. Least favorite TS was Primetime. My favorite CS meal was the Cantina de San Angel. Least favorite CS was Flame Tree. Favorite snack, this one is tough – funnel cakes and school bread, I think. I hope these reviews were helpful. I will gladly answer any questions. I will start a trip report soon, hopefully.

Ok, I am so wanting a Dole Whip float right now! (they need a drooling smilie)

Thanks for all the pics and the reviews. I know that was a lot of hard work with all you have had going on in your RL.

Thanks for the encouragement, Al! If you have not tried a strawberry swirl, you must next time!

Stacey - just read your entire review in one sitting. You did an awesome job!!! Now if I could only talk DH into trying BOMA, he hates buffets. Maybe he'd give JIKO a shot! Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed your entire review!!
