Live and learn, right? I think we know better anymore than to expect truly authentic cuisine from the F&W booths ... it's really America's version of ethnic food.

In years past I do think their food at the Poland booth was better, but this year it was baaaad.

Ummmm ... wait with bated breath for when I tell you all about how our order was screwed up at Ghiardelli's.

I'm guessing the same brain surgeon who decided homogenization of menus across the resort was a good idea also chose whole wheat buns for hamburgers and hotdogs.

And Cass, I'll flash for anything if it's free ... as long as no one holds me to that because it's not intentional.

I hope you enjoy Casey's if you do get to try it Bridget - it's really a tradition for us and the dogs are quite good. And the fries are good with just the cheese, too, although I like the mustard as well!

It's so cool that you got to meet Whogirl'smom (I love her name and she was kind enough to tell how she got it, too). So funny the two of you forgetting your phones.

And I second what Maxiesmom said about Polish food. DH is 100% Polish American and I'm part Polish (I always say that the Polish part is my mouth 'cause I love Polish food; my ears are the Irish part 'cause I love Celtic music ).
Hiya Joanne - thanks for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Whogirl'smom and I have been chatting for a long time here on the DIS so it was awesome to finally meet her in person.

Thanks for reading and I hope the weather gets better up by you - you guys have really been pummeled over the last month or so.

I just wish I had most of that food in front of me right now.
Hey there! How have you been? Thanks for reading ... I'm glad to know we weren't the only ones who thought that drink was disgusting. I'm with you ... they got me once but never again. The tea was wonderful ... I could drink that all day long.

Cathy
Woohoo! Your first F&W fest! Be sure to try anything you think sounds good ... even if someone else here says it stinks ... the quality of certain things can vary from day to day and everyone has different tastes so you might find that you really like something that a lot of people don't care for ... except for that drink in Poland.

BTW - what are your dates? I'm going to start keeping track on my community thread of all our food friends who are planning October trips to see how we all overlap. My goal is to plan a get-together one evening over at the Beach Club ...

Okay:

A hot dog on a wheat bun is silly. Laughable. Insane. The Rorschach should be administered to the person who thought that up.

Love your Flashdance sweater off the shoulder, tank showing look. You and Jay look great.

Don't feel bad about missing the Lapu. They are good but no better than your average Rum Runnery type drink. The drink is deceiving. They put a teeny libation in a very large pineapple.

That's the best thing anyone's said about this whole bun issue in ages! And the best part ... it's true!!

Thanks again! I bought these t-shirts a Old Navy last summer and I love them because they are very light and very soft and comfy, but the shoulders are always slipping and I hate having my bra straps show. So I wear a tank underneath and let it all hang out.

Aww, thanks! As I re-read that installment I think maybe I should have written: gagging on the bitter taste of expensive disappointment.

Hey Brenda,

I am sending out my dates to you.. I just saw the goings on on Lori's reviews also.
Jason and I will be at WDW the 16th to the 25th and would love a drink or 5 with you, Jay and everyone!
Also we hated the Poland drink also! It was super gloopy and sweet and I forget the price but I know it was $$$$!

Jay's family owns a farm in a godforsaken section of Missouri that time has forgotten.

We eat corn.

And we sometimes avail ourselves of the phrase "aw, shucks" in conversation.

It all fits.
I can relate, sort of. I refer to my meat-eating ways as "a Midwesterner who loves her corn-fed beef".

I think I can claim Bitter Taste of Disappointment, party of one at my Frenchie lunch, so the karma has evened out.

Do you wonder if Erica and Lionel shared an involuntary shudder 40 minutes to the east of Orlando just as I locked the room safe???
Oy. I don't know about them, but I just shuddered. Will you ever have your phone with you? Even text messages help, IMHO.

While I regret not having the opportunity to try the Lapu Lapu, I'm convinced that we made the right decision and we had a fine old time doing things completely unplanned.
I notice you tend to have these bursts of food sponteneity, canceling dinner reservations. Or am I imagining this?

We always order the the All Beef 1/4 Pound Hot Dog Meal which comes with a drink and a choice of french fries or fruit. Our drink of choice was water and of course we ordered the french fries ... why spoil a hot dog with a "healthy" side dish? Unless you're planning on dipping those apple slices into a vat of hot, melty pretend cheese, that is.

I was especially interested to see for myself whether or not the great bun debate that had raged here on the DIS was really worth all the energy and angst that it had generated. For what it's worth, I think the wheat buns are a stupid move on Disney's part. They weren't awful, but they were very dry and added nothing to the meal. My personal opinion is that Disney ought to offer patrons a choice as to the type of bun they'd prefer. Eating a hot dog on a whole wheat bun does not make it a healthier food option, nor does offering up pre-sliced, vacuum sealed, slimy apple chunks in place of french fries. I'd much rather make my own choices about what constitutes healthy or unhealthy food ... I don't need the Walt Disney Company to save me from myself and neither does anyone else.

So there!

The unhealthiest kind of processed meat, but it tastes so good!


It works like this: fry, cheese, mustard, eat; repeat until fries are gone.
I haven't eaten at Casey's in years, and those buns don't inspire me to return. I think yellow mustard is best when taken in moderation. I like the Chicago dog enough if they go light on the mustard. I couldn't imagine dipping fries in it like you do. Bleh.

I'd just about given up hope as the clock chimed seven when I spied someone hurrying along the sidewalk ... I rolled the dice and walked up to her and said hello, crossing my fingers that I'd picked the right person from the multitudes swarming into the park.

WOOOO-HOOOOTY-HOO!!!!

I turned to Jay and said, "Nailed it!"

Imagine our relief when Jamie proceeded to tell us that they were late due to some driving / parking kind of issues and would have called to let us know but didn't have their cell phone with them!!!

We had a good laugh at ourselves and spent a few minutes chatting before releasing Whogirl and her Whomom and Whodad for dinner. They were just the cutest family and I even managed to snag a picture of Jamie and me before we all parted ways.

Someone's got the chompers out again!
Egad! Wardrobe Malfunction!
I think it's funny that Jamie left her phone behind, too.

It was the most expensive drink being offered at the food booths, aside from champagne, and I made the silly assumption that it was a taste combination that would be impossible for anyone to screw up.

You know what they say about people who assume, and in my case it's totally true.

We ordered both food options that Poland was selling: the Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup and the Kielbasa and Potato Pierogies with Carmelized Onions and Sour Cream. Our gravest mistake of the evening was ordering the Vodka Raspberry cocktail to wash it all down.

It all sucks if you ask me!


To be fair, Jay said the mushroom soup in Poland was pretty tasty but I don't like mushrooms so there was no way I was going to try even a smidge of it.

The kielbasa, which is almost impossible to see in our picture because it was buried under stringy, greasy onions that looked like burnt tentacles, was not very good - lukewarm and greasier than any sausage has a right to be. The pierogie was bland and disappointing ... those bits that I could manage to eat that hadn't been tainted by sour cream.
I passed on the food at Poland because it just didn't look good to me this year. I had been spoiled by having authentic pierogies made fresh for me by a woman from Poland, and those just looked nasty by comparison.

Your drink is like swill to us. Do I have that right ... only a swine would drink this?

It was vile. An uber-sweet, syrupy, gloppy mess that you will never convince me contained a drop of alcohol. We will never darken Poland's doorstep again ... unless they bring back the Okocim Beer that they used to peddle.
I think you told me to stay away from this drink, and I heeded your advice. I didn't want to pay that much for a drink that was swill.

Second time's a charm!


This was a much better and much more satisfying food booth visit. The mint ice tea was wonderfully refreshing with just a hint of mintiness that in no way overpowered our tastebuds. The beefy hummus pocket was delicious but I think I would have liked it a little better with no beef and more hummus. And the chicken roll was like an eggroll that had been made with chicken instead of pork or shrimp - there were some veggies tucked into it as well. Jay and I agreed that our stop in Morocco was a fine old way to end the evening at Epcot ... it was growing very crowded and we decided to head back to SSR while Illuminations was taking place - we were in the mood for dessert and planned on making our way to Ghiaradelli's for a sundae!

So stay tuned for our dessert mad-house ... review coming soon (relatively speaking)!!
That looked a lot better than Poland, but I skipped that kiosk, too. I get too full too quickly. I need a designated food sharing partner for food and wine so I can sample more items.

I wouldn't go make a special trip to Ghiaradelli's when a No Way José (face or no face!) is steps from my room.

The Casey's fries are really making me want some with cheese (must try next trip). Remember when Wendy's restaurants had the food bar with the fake cheese? Nothing like Biggie fries with day-glo cheese!

Whew! Your picture of me turning out way better than mine! I was just glad that someone else suffers from brain fog like me. We really enjoyed meeting you and Jay!

All I can say about the Polish food is that I reeaallly need to slow down when I read....the first time I did not read "burnt tentacles" but "burnt male-body-part". That made me chortle all over again. But the Morocco food looks like it more than made up for it!

Time to take Whogirl to dance!

You are not imagining things ... we usually end up canceling at least one ADR per trip, sometimes more depending on our mood and the weather. Sometimes things sound good at home when you make those ADRs forty years in advance and then you get to WDW and it suddenly doesn't sound appealing anymore.

Not really a malfunction ... it's just a tank under the t-shirt which just likes to fall all over the place and flash sexy round shoulders at my hubba.

I tried to warn everyone away from that drink ... even complete strangers who were waiting in line to order later in the week.

And your food instincts were right ... at least on the night that we stopped there - the food was nasty, IMHO.

I think you look great in that picture ... and you're not flashing enough molars to chew through a park bench, either (unlike some people). We enjoyed meeting you and your family, too ... if we ever get back down there at the same time we'll have to make more room in our schedules to meet ... and we'll both bring our phones.

And thank you for the giggle fit about the "tentacles" ...

And Cass, I'll flash for anything if it's free ... as long as no one holds me to that because it's not intentional.



I hope you enjoy Casey's if you do get to try it Bridget - it's really a tradition for us and the dogs are quite good. And the fries are good with just the cheese, too, although I like the mustard as well!



Hiya Joanne - thanks for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Whogirl'smom and I have been chatting for a long time here on the DIS so it was awesome to finally meet her in person.



Thanks for reading and I hope the weather gets better up by you - you guys have really been pummeled over the last month or so.



Hey there! How have you been? Thanks for reading ... I'm glad to know we weren't the only ones who thought that drink was disgusting. I'm with you ... they got me once but never again. The tea was wonderful ... I could drink that all day long.



Woohoo! Your first F&W fest! Be sure to try anything you think sounds good ... even if someone else here says it stinks ... the quality of certain things can vary from day to day and everyone has different tastes so you might find that you really like something that a lot of people don't care for ... except for that drink in Poland.

BTW - what are your dates? I'm going to start keeping track on my community thread of all our food friends who are planning October trips to see how we all overlap. My goal is to plan a get-together one evening over at the Beach Club ...
We're going the 1st weekend..Sept 25 - Oct 2nd.
Had to squeeze into that 40% off code !
This way we'll be able to hit FWF and MNSSHP as well
Two more marked off my list.. It would be so much easier on my DH if he wold just agree to move to FL.

There is a ring around the moon tonight...

At other times I'd think it was romantic...

tonight it means more snow...

then the arctic comes in...

Funny thing is we have the 109th airwing (the Air National Guard that flies into Antarctica and are the only ones who can fly to the South Pole... they're walkin around in short sleeves...

I love the sunny pictures and the suntanned us right now, too. We have a front moving through and the house is rattling in the wind ... high temp of 43 earlier today ... falling to 12 by tomorrow morning. Bitterly cold the rest of the week with no snow or anything else to even make it worthwhile.

I'd smuggle whisky into the office so that I could keep warm during the day but then I'd have to share.

Sorry to hear about the looming snow ... right now I wish we had some. What's the point of having this kind of prolonged cold if there's no snow on the ground to pretty things up? It's just ugly and dead in Stinktown ... oh, and stinky.
