Great updates, Marcia!

First question - I haven't done a breakfast ADR in a few years; are they all serving some sort of Krispy Kreme product? I've seen donut holes AND donuts - YUM!

That's stinks about WCC! The whole point of that place is the entertainment! Sorry you didn't get to experience it!

Can't wait for the next review!

You make me want to try and get a ressie at Yak n Yeti! That looks right up my alley! Yum!

Sorry WCC wasn't all you hoped. We didn't love it when we were there either.
We had a bit of the antics but for us the night we were there the food wasn't so hot.

Great Pic's

I sure am enjoying your reviews. There is so much food. Usually I get hungry when I look at these but with yours all I can think is "How does such a small person eat all of that?". I know that you didn't finish a lot of it. The chicken app for Yak & Yeti looked like it was big enough for a meal for two. Looked yummy too!

Oops! I forgot to take the picture till after I ate it. There were shrimp in there. Lots of them too. That's mainly what I ate, the shrimp. Didn't have much of the noodles, but they were good too. Again, huge portion, easily could have been shared.
I am so glad to see pictures of this dish. Are you a pho fan? When made properly, it is one of my favorites. Is this one authenic? Does it have a star anise flavor? They got the garnishes right, so I'm hoping the pho flavor is correct too. I can't wait to try it!!!! Thanks!!!!

This is probably off topic (Sorry Marcia! PS--I love your reviews!), but... is Pho made from chicken or beef broth? I am a pescetarian and would so eat this if it were made from some sort of fish or even vegetable and lemongrass stock--yum!

Pho is traditionally made with beef stock, but who knows how yak n yeti make it.

Thanks for the great reviews. I'll be at Yak and Yeti in July and I am encouraged by your review as there have been a few not-so-glowing reviews of it. I was set on getting the fried green beans as my app but those lettuce cups look darn tasty...

DO you think I could take the leftovers w me (as my room and refridge is right upstairs??)

I have been reading your reviews as ds will only eat chicken fingers so I am trying all these places I have always wanted to go to...dh is a picky eater and isn't going this trip-- so we are trying boma, kona, ohana's-- morocco too maybe? told ds (11) I am using him to get to these places
Jill
i'm sure you could get the leftovers boxed up, that would work well with you staying at WL.

50's Prime Time Cafe, lunch, 05.04.08

Ah, 50's PTC. I have such a love in my heart for this place. Me and my mom ate here 3, yes 3, times when we did our first onsite trip last August. And it was all because of our waiter. I've been back at least 5 times since, and he hasn't been there any other time! It's getting frustrating, as I don't think anyone can live up to his standards. Anyway, that's just so that you know I have very high expectations for this place.

My ADR was for 12:30pm, but I had accomplished what I wanted to at MGM earlier than expected. So I showed up at 11:40, and was seated right away. Off course, I requested my waiter, but he wasn't there . Oh well, I'd survive. I was seated at a 2 top right between a 4 top and another 2 top. I made fast friends with my cousins around me, and was encouraged to do so by my server Carole.

I know the drill here, so I set my table asap. Kinda funny, Carole walks by and tells me to set the table, she didn't even notice right away that I already did it . I was like "Done!" She was impressed with me right away . She informed me that my choices for drinks included milkshakes, and I was thrilled, as I've always wanted to try the PBJ milkshake. So I went for it!



Looked just like vanilla, but tasted all nice and peanut-buttery. Yum! I know it sounds weird, but it really is a good thing.

I knew what I wanted for my appetizer, the fried herb cheese, of course. I love this appy. I've had it many times, and will continue to have it in the future.



Love shmearing that cheese all over that crusty bread, and munch munch munch! It's so yummy, a tangy wonderfully spreadable cheese . I also love the grapes and strawberries that come with it.

I was having big trouble figuring out what I wanted for my main meal. I almost always order the vegetarian stuffed pepper or if not, I get the stacked sandwich, but since I was also having a milkshake (no, didn't finish it!), appy, AND dessert to come, I wanted to switch it up. Figured the chicken ceasar salad was a good, light choice.

This was funny though, as I didn't really want the ceasar dressing. I asked if there were any other choices. She said no, no other choices. Then she changed her mind and told me I could have ranch or ceasar. Now, I know they also have another dressing, since I've had it on the side salad before. So I was like, are you sure there's no other choices? Then she was like, okay, well, we only have the ceasar, ranch, or house citrus (i think it was citrus of some sort anyway). This was actually a pretty humorous exchange, and my cousins next to me were paying attention too. It was like, well, no, you only have one choice. Or wait, maybe two. Oh, just kidding! Three choices! Maybe you had to be there, but I was like, what? Hehe. Anyway, I went with the citrus one, on the side please!



I was told that to join the clean plate club, I only needed to finish the chicken, and that the lettuce didn't count. Well, I finished off that lettuce too! Just not the croutons. Twas a good salad, hit the spot. But I don't really like croutons. I was cheered by all of my cousins around the restaurant when Carole announced that I had cleared my plate. Yay me!

After all of this clean plate club talk, you'd think that must be the end of the meal. Oh no, not me. I still had dessert to come! Now, I've had the smores before, and absolutely LOVE them (hmm...i absolutely LOVE lots of stuff at 50's don't i now? ). But I decided to switch it up, once again! I got to look through the handy viewfinder to pick my dessert. Funny, with all the times I've been here, this was the first time I got the viewfinder!



I inquired as to what the cobbler was. When I was told it was apple, I was all over it. And would I like vanilla ice cream with that? Of course! Bring it on!



Yummy, warm, gooey, couldn't have asked for more! Nice crumbles on top too. And cold ice cream. Melty, delicious goodness.

Oh yes, I asked if coffee was included with the Deluxe Plan, and Carole told me it wasn't. But she let me have it anyway. It didn't come until after I was done with my dessert though, so she put it in a to-go cup for me. Well, I walked back out into the heat and immediately dumped it. Ah well.

Anyway, the food was great. Service was fine. But remember, no one can live up to my standards here. Will I be back? Of course! We have 2 ADRs planned for our family trip this August . And we're crossing our fingers that our waiter will be there!

next up: dinner at Flying Fish...but will I make it??
