We did not enjoy WCC - we waited 45 min for our table but our ressie was at 8pm and there was an accident in the lobby (child hit her head on one of the tables) so this may have slowed things down. By the time we got through with dinner everybody was tired- us and the servers- but reading your review has given me inspiration to try WCC again.

Thanks for all the great comments guys!! I enjoyed eating, just as much as you enjoyed reading (for reviews sake of course!)

I'm glad that you will try WCC again! I understand that restaurants have good days and bad days, and that we were lucky enough to catch all of our picks on good days... albeit a few patchy moments, but nothing major.

Finally moving onto something different from the Magic Kingdom, we happened to be at Typhoon Lagoon today when hunger struck. I tell ya, floating through the Lazy River is hard work. Having glanced at the menus before we came, I realised that Leaning Palms had the largest choice of meals, so off we went.

After a small glitch when I realised that I had brought our photopass card from our locker instead of our Key to the World (well, we should have welcomed the extra exercise!) we arrived at Leaning Palms. There were plenty of tables so we both went ahead and ordered food. Again we got exactly the same thing which was burger and fries, large sprite and a Mickey bar - our first ice cream of the vacation and I was so excited to be having a Mickey bar! We got offered to come back later for the ice cream which we took them up on.



This was just a normal burger and fries - not awesome, but not bad... just a burger you would expect at counter service. It had plenty of cheese which is always good! I don't think there is any need for me to review the Mickey Bar...okay, okay, you guys twisted my arm. It was chocolately, creamy and cold, everything you could want from an ice cream bar on a shockingly hot day in Typhoon Lagoon!

Ambience: We ate outside (well, there wasn't any indoor seating!) on a covered platform to the left of Leaning Palms. I hate eating outside when it's hot, but I believe there were fans since I wasn't whinging about the heat the whole meal It was very beachy and again, just seating you would expect at a waterpark. We went around 11.45am and there was plenty of seating.

H RATING: 6.5/10
E RATING: 6/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? If we were in TL, I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. I'd probably choose something different to a burger though, as they had a good selection for a water park counter service.

You can actually make your own Figaro Fries at Cosmic Rays. Just get an order of fries, then head over to the toppings bar and load up on cheddar cheese sauce, ranch (you might have to go to to salad side and request some), lettuce and tomatoes. There you go. Now if you want a burger and Figaro Fries...you only have to go to one place!

Loving the report!!!! Please tell me that Els wore sunscreen on the remainder of the trip because he looks really sunburned while he is enjoying his Mickey Bar.
