Norway for Breakfast

This morning we had breakfast at Norway. For some reason, I remembered it being better. We had an 8:25 ADR, we arrived at 8:25, but we weren’t seated until 9.
Our server was Synne from Oslo. She started off strong, but disappeared towards the end.
This meal is half buffet (cold stuff) and pre-plated (hot stuff). Here are the pics:

– Not really enough eggs for 5 people, we needed a refill right off the bat.




Here are the princesses we met.




Is Mary Poppins really a princess? Maybe she’s been hired on to handle all the little princes and princesses.

Overall, we were a bit disappointed as the storybook breakfast did not live up our memories of it. On the bright side, both DD’s favorite princesses were there, so that’s a definite plus.
I gave it 2 stars, DW and Mrs. Potts each gave it 3 stars for a total of 8/15 stars.
Cost would have been $139.47

Epcot Snacks

We bought a cotton candy to share right before using our fast passes for Soarin'.


The we hit Yorkshire County Fish Shop for a Chips (sans fish) a great use of a snack credit.



Later in the afternoon, DW and the girls hit the Boulangerie Patisserie for pastries

Mmmmm...Beer

Biergarten was a blast and a great surprise. Biergarten had been on my list of places to try, but it always got vetoed by DW. We are so glad we finally go there. The food was much better than expected and there were a lot of choices. I would definitely recommend you try this place. We had 6:30 ADR and arrived at 6:20 to see a very long line at the check-in desk and didn’t check in until 6:40. We were seated quickly after checking in at about 6:43. Our server was Gretel from Bremen and she was fantastic. She kept our drinks flowing and our used plates from piling up. We were seated with a family of 3 from Iowa. They were very friendly and my DDs really chatted up Annie (the mom).
Here are some pics of the grub:








They were out of large glasses, so I had a small beer

DW wanted to get in on the beer action



The band was fun and the girls even got into the act.



We all gave Biergarten 4.5 stars for a total of 13.5/15 stars. This is an incredibly fun time. You should go there.

Without DxDDP it woiuld have cost $130.95

As you can see we haven't eaten them yet. That's the counter in our villa.
What is that butterscotch-chip covered snack on the Mickey curly straw? looks yummy!

It's 3 marshmellows dipped in dark chocolate, coated with peanut butter chips and drizzled in white chocolate.

wow Jiko looked awesome. I may have to reconsider Beirgarten. I always hesitate making an adr there as I have 2 picky eaters in my group.

I love goofy's candy co. can't wait to go there in oct. Already deciding between pretzel sticks and marshmallow. luckily, i have plenty of time to decide.

Loving your report. A couple of comments...

Your girls are so pretty! Someone said that they looked like fairies and I couldn't have described it better myself.

"Jiko-The Eating Place"...that's just hilarious. It is the eating place!

We got stuck with Mary Poppins once at the Princess Story Book breakfast and another time at the CRT breakfast and that was a major let down. Don't get me wrong...she's a great character but not a princess.

Last comment....those are some huge beers! Gee whiz.

The food at Jiko was pretty good, but for two TS credits it aughta be. Loved Biergarten - DW is a picky eater and Mrs. Potts is doing weight watchers and they both liked it. You should give it a shot. Goofy's candy shop is great, luckily it wasn't too busy when we got there.

Thanks. Honestly, I was at the buffet and missed MP anyway, so no biggie.

Too tired to do live reports tonight, but here's a preview: we ate at Cape May Cafe, Sci-Fi and Tutto Italia.
