Just found your food report! I read your other trip report from last year. I should have never read this report! I am trying to diet and that food looked sooo good! I am now craving a hamburger. I'll have to check out your wedding PJ...I soo want a vow renewal at WDW or some caribbean island....maybe at 15 or 20 yrs?? Gives me more than enough time to save for it. LOL!

I love those Disney chocolate chip pancakes - Disney is the only place in the world I would have chocolate for breakfast!

Thank you very much for all the comments! Apologies I've been AWOL for a while! GOOD NEWS is we've booked a very last minute trip to Orlando for next month!! Bad news in we're not going to Disney, so no dining reviews Of course, I can do some I Drive ones!! Hopefully we'll be eating at Earl of Sandwich (love it!) and if I can get an ADR for my site visit (for wedding planning) date then we'll be doing Kona too. Just a short 10 day trip, and the Disney tickets are too expensive for our last minute budget, so we're doing Universal instead - I'm excited though!! And of course we'll be back at Disney next year for the big one

On with the show!

Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory (POFQ) - Lunch

We'd been to Blizzard Beach this morning, until about 2, so we decided to back to POFQ for lunch. DF hates eating in water parks, sitting there in your shorts, dripping wet, with hot food in your face. It happened to be a boiling hot day today as well, the first real hot day since we'd arrived and we'd turned a bit red, so it was time to go back!

Dinner wasn't too far away, so we decided to share lunch since we'd already had breakfast anyway. Apologies in advance for the rubbish photo, but we only had our underwater digi which had ran out of batteries at BB! I was trying my best to snap a quick shot before the camera went off again!

We both shared a Cheesesteak Sandwich (no peppers!) and fries, a drink, and I can't remember for the life of me what we got for dessert! I think we got 3 Beignets, but Els didn't like them. I thought they were nice, the powdered sugar went everywhere!!


Cheesesteak

It was just enough to tide us over until dinner time, and the Cheesesteak was lovely!

H RATING: 8/10
E RATING: 8/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? Yes, we did! It's really good if you don't want a full sit down meal, or if you want to eat before getting to the park. It's quite quiet in the middle of the day so we got served straight away.

Tony's Town Square - Dinner

Tonight we were looking forward to a dinner at Tony's, before going to meet some friends off another Disney Forum (UOG) for the fireworks cruise This was also our last meal as a dating couple, as DF proposed about an hour afterwards

We've never waited more than 5mins here, and we practically almost walked in.

Els in the waiting area

We had a lovely table near the fountain which was nice!




Knowing there would be bread on the table, and having stuffed our faces for the first few days, we declined an appetizer and just ordered a couple of cokes.


The bread - this is different to last year's, where the dip was tomatoey rather than olive oil

For our mains, we both went for the steak - NY Strip Steak with Port Wine Sauce, Baked Romano Cheese Potatoes and Broccolini


The steak was good - strip steak wouldn't really be my cut of choice, but I thought it was a good cut for it being a strip. The sauce was nice but I don't remember the potatoes being particularly cheesy. I think this was the problem with the meal - it was nice, but not memorable... I had to look at the photo to see what came with the steak and I can't really remember what it tasted like.

For dessert, Els got the Tiramisu - espresso soaked lady fingers, whipped mascarpone and dark chocolate shavings


I think the presentation is cute on this one.

For dessert, I got the seasonal sorbet, which happened to be apple.


It was nice, but there was a lot of it for a sorbet! You could tell it was freshly made however, as there was some apple pulp in there.

H RATING: 6.5/10
E RATING: 7/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? We loved Tony's last time, and we liked it this time - probably because we ate at so many great places this time, this just fades from memory. It was nice enough that I would eat there again, but probably not on the next trip as again, there are so many great places out there.
