Day One
We arrived by lunch on June 19 and hooray, our room was ready. After taking the luggage to the room, we headed to DTD for lunch at Earl of Sandwich (DS) and Wolfgang Cafe for me and DH. DS loves Earl of Sandwich, the ham and swiss is the sandwich of choice. After standing in the ridiculously long line at Earl's (tip: get here before noon to avoid the rush) we headed to Wolfgang. DH and I were very disappointed to learn that they have changed the menu. DH loved the bbq chicken quesadilla which is no longer on the menu and I loved the Rotisserie Beef and Gorgonzola Pocket which you guessed it.....it's not offered anymore. Well after much discussion with the cashier, Dh decided on the bbq chicken pizza and I on the Spaghetti with Meatballs (which by the way no longer comes with a side salad). We both had creme brulee and cherry coke. Sorry, we didn't take pics of our lunch.

After lunch we headed back to the resort for swimming in Stormalong Bay.


Dinner was at San Angel Inn. We arrived at 5:20 for a 5:30 reservation. We were seated promptly. The decor of this restaurant is beautiful but the seating can be crowded.

I ordered the Filete Motuleno - Grilled beef tenderloin with beans, Oaxaco melted cheese, Ranchero sauce, Pablano peppers, and fried plaintain $33. Yummy!!! This was very flavorful and I would definitely have it again. The meat was tender and the sauce delicious.


DH and DS ordered the Tacos de Ribeye-grilled ribeye served over flour tortillas topped with chipotle pepper sauce and garnished with scallions and avocado $24 .They said this dish was fantastic but not for the faint of heart. This was very flavorful but very hot! Good thing we all took stomach pills before we went. they liked this dish but would not get it agian because of the hotness. Since sweet tea was not available again we drank sodas.


For dessert I had the Capirotada de Chocolate Blanco - white chocolate golden raisin bread pudding served with Mexican milk caramel $5.75 which was again wonderful. I love bread pudding.


DH and DS ordered vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup to try and cool down their mouths from the chipotle pepper sauce.


Our server was great and dinner was wonderful.
We rate San Angel 4 out of 5 sweet teas.




After dinner we went to see the Bee Gee's Tribute band. They were very good but only were able to perform 3 songs due to the storm that blew in.

Great start! The food at San Angel certainly seems to have improved since we were there last.

Welcome back guys!! I would rather be hot in WDW than being stuck at home where it is going to hit the triple digits again ...Isn't it nice to have those typical downpour to cool thing down??

Day Two: Sunday June 20 Happy Father's Day!!

We headed to MK this morning for rope drop to try and beat the heat. We had an early lunch because of the hot weather and mainly because my guys don't like breakfast food so we generally skip breakfast. Lunch was at our favorite MK restaurant, Columbia Harbour House. This place has a lovely atmosphere. I was dying to try the Lighthouse Sandwich after seeing pics and reading reviews of it on the Disboards. It is a perfect sandwich for summer. DS surprisingly opted for the fish platter instead of the chicken platter. DH had the newly added fried shrimp platter, which he said reminded him of Captain D's.

The Lighthouse Sandwich consisted of toasted wholewheat bread, hummus, broccoli salad, and tomatoes. It definitely lived up to the hype. Dessert was an apple crisp for me and DH and DS had the chocolate cake.

Lighthouse Sandwich



Shrimp Platter


Sorry no pic of dessert or the fish.

We give this four out of five sweet teas.


Dinner----Ohana's


We are not big on buffets but family style service works well. For those of you that have not dined at this restaurant, it is a must do (at least once). We arrived just before the rain and we were seated promptly beside the window with a great view.


All meats are cooked on an open fire pit.


The menu consists of: salad with honey lime dressing, Asian noodles, steamed vegetables, pineapple coconut bread, dumplings (no not like your grandma makes, more like pot stickers), teriyaki wings, grilled chicken, shrimp, steak, and pork. There are three dipping sauces. These are peanut, mustard, and a sweet and spicy sauce.

Bread-DS likes this bread but me and DH think is just okay.


Salad-Now I'm a salad lover and this perhaps is my favorite salad in all of WDW. The honey lime dressing is fantastic. The crispness of the lettuce and the tangy flavor of the dressing is just what is needed for a hot day.


Asian noodles and steamed veggies-DH loves the Asian noodles.


wings-me and DH love the wings. They are messy but they give you hot towels to clean your hands with.


Dumplings - My DH absolutely loves these dumplings.


Shrimp - Is probably the least favorite of the meats because we are lazy and we don't like to peel the shrimp (that still didn't stop us from eating them).


Steak - The steak has a good flavor but it's not a very high quality steak.


Chicken and pork - You guessed it. The chicken is DS's favorite. The pork is DH's favorite. Both are very flavorful and very juicy.


Dessert - Bread pudding. This is the king of all desserts. Warm bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream topped with caramel/banana sauce. It's yummy yummy.


Service was a little slow but overall we give this Father's Day meal a 4 and a half out of 5 sweet teas.

Thanks for the reviews of San Angel and Ohana's. Those tacos look good and I didn't see them on the dinner menu on AllEars for San Angel. We can't decide between lunch or dinner there.

Being from the South (and also a Vol fan) I sure do miss sweet tea when I go to Disney too. If I could set up a sweet tea stand somewhere in MK I bet I could make a fortune.

You will LOVE the villas. I never buy the refillable mugs. Since we drive to Disney we always bring our own drinks and just put them in the fridge. It's a healthy walk to the refill station. If you are able try and bring your own drinks. If you can't you might want to give the Garden Grocer a try.
