So after a quick-ish jaunt through Adventureland, Frontierland and parts west where we ran into this cowpoke


This got us thoroughly in the mood for Whispering Canyon Café. For those of you who are not familiar with WCC, it’s a loud, kind of raucous, cowboy themed joint, known for its silly antics and bottomless milkshakes and skillets. Honestly, this was DW’s choice, as I could have skipped it for this trip.

So we boarded the boat from Magic Kingdom for what proved to be a very pleasant trip to the Wilderness Lodge, the site of WCC. We sat out in the front of the boat, where a very helpful and pleasant CM explained to DDs all of the different lights and sounds that the boats use to navigate and keep from colliding into each other. We even had a bit of an awkward moment, as we passed under the monorail as one was going clockwise and another moved counter-clockwise, Ariel shouted out, “Oh no, the monorails are gonna crash into each other!” The CM, said not usually, that only happens late at night, when we’re closing up. Anyway, on to WCC.

Our ADR was for 8:30, we arrived at 8:23 and we were seated very promptly at 8:30 by Charles, an older gentleman, who called himself “Grampa”, who’s been working at WCC since as long as we’ve been going there. DDs passed the 7 minutes wait time with Lincoln Logs


Our server’s name was Dave, but he called himself the Medicine Man, he was very much in character, but not too obnoxious, and very efficient, making sure we always had what we needed.

DW’s Chocolate Milkshake

My Diet Coke

Cornbread


Here are our appetizers
Western Chips and Dip – steer clear of this one. The chips tasted stale and the queso dip was pretty mediocre. DW and I are big chile con queso fans and this just did not stack up.

Barbeque Pork Spring Rolls – the stand out appy. This was delicious, if not a bit greasy. It’s a pair of spring rolls stuffed with barbeque pulled pork and cheddar, served with a barbeque-mayonnaise dipping sauce. mmmmm

Kid’s Salad

Spinach and Pear Salad (hold the Bleu Cheese)

Here’s the salad that comes with the Skillet


On to the main courses.
Being at WCC, I had to sample the skillet.

Some of you may notice the absence of chicken and coleslaw. DW pointed this out and the Medicine Man delivered the goods.

Since we were on DxDDP, I opted not to get any refills on the skillet, though DW and DDs did get milkshake refills.
The standout on the skillet is the chicken, the rest is average bbq fare.

DW’s Chicken Vegetable Penne Pasta

She said the pasta was very good, but the chicken was “yucky”.

Mrs. Potts had the Grilled Rib-Eye Steak. I guess it was camera shy.

Ariel had the chicken skillet and Aurora had the ribs skillet.



DDs had a great time here. Now that they’re 4, they willingly participated in some of the antics like fetching ketchup and horseracing and had a ball.



After dinner, we were completely zonked, especially, Aurora. We took our desserts to go.
Deep-Dish Bourbon Pecan Pie - with Chocolate Sauce
Kahlúa-flavored Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse Filling and Fudge Icing

Apple-Caramel Pie - Fresh Granny Smith Apples, Sugar Cookie Crust, Streusel Topping, and Caramel Drizzle and Kid’s cookies


We picked up our refillable mugs when we got back to the AKV and sampled these deserts, along with some “coffee”.

The deserts were very sweet, but nothing special. If you go to the WCC, go for the silliness and the fun, not necessarily the food. We each gave it 3 stars for a final score of 9/15.
Our bill would have been $175.88 at WCC if not for the DxDDP.
FYI the 5 mugs would have cost $69.18

Boma breakfast - the good, the bad and the meh.

Okay, bright and early for our ADR at Boma, then off to AK. We walked over to Jambo House this morning, we are staying in the wing that's closer to Jambo than the Kidani lobby, so we walked to the end of the hall and down the stairs to a non-descript exit. Through the door wee burst into a sort of twilight zone that was full of CMs smoking cigarettes and there were no guests. It apparently empties into a large service area. The door did not say emergency only or authorized personnel only. We quickly got our bearings and walked to Jambo House and arrived at Boma at 7:50 for our 7:45 ADR, the made us wait 5 minutes and seated us in the nearly empty Boma. Our server was Laura from Lakeland, FL. She was fine, cleared dishes, brought drinks, just what you'd need at Boma.



Here are some pics of the buffet.












In my opinion, Boma is the best breakfast at WDW - foodwise, hand's down. I thought they had something for everyone, but apparently I was wrong.
I am an adventurous eater, I love to try new things and I don't mind a bit of spice in the morning. Maybe that's the profile of a Boma-lover. IMHO, the standouts were the goat cheese scrambled eggs, the bobotie and the buscuits with curried sausage gravy. They also had an omlette station which is always a plus. I gave it 5 stars.

DW on the other hand, gave it three stars and thought the food was meh and coffee was was horrible. (I thought the first pot was okay, but I agree with her on the 2nd). Maybe she's a convert to nescafe.

Mrs. Potts thought it was only okay as well and gave it 3.5 stars. Se also hated the coffee.

Thus, it is with a heavy heart that I must announce that Boma breakfast only received 11.5/15 stars.

Here are some of the plates:
Quinoa

My Plate

Ariel's favorite food - cereal

Some pastries

Mrs. Potts omlette

And the winner - the buscuit with curried sausage gravy.


This meal would have cost us $75.75.

Looking forward to Jiko for dinner tonight.
