Cape May Café for breakfast.

Cape May Café is located in the Beach Club Resort, which is a beautiful DVC property located near Epcot. This was a must do for DW because it’s the only character breakfast we’d never been to. Now that we completed all of the character breakfasts, we will likely not be venturing back to Cape May unless we are staying at the Beach Club or Boardwalk; it’s really not work the trip from anywhere else. First, there are only three characters, Minnie, Goofy and Donald, so you won’t get as many pictures and autographs as other character spots. Second, the offerings are more limited and a bit lower quality than Chef Mickey’s, Crystal Palace or Tusker House. The highlights for me were the breakfast pizza and the bread pudding; the rest was average or below average, particularly the breakfast meats which were dried out.

We arrived for our 9 o’clock ADR at 9:08 (hey Disney transportation is not always a piece of cake). It was pretty busy at the podium and we were seated at 9:19. Our server was Betty and she was not very good, she didn’t clear the used plates and was a bit gruff.

Here are some of the food pics:










We were seated at a booth, which can be a bit of a problem for character interactions. The Goofy and Minnie we only okay, but the Donald was great.




I gave Cape May Café a 2.5
DW gave it a 3.5, but said they did not replenish fast enough.
Mrs. Potts gave it a 3, but couldn’t find trhe oatmeal – she might have scored it higher if she had the oatmeal.

Total Score 9/15
Total Cost without DxDDP $92.61

Sci-Fi = Fun!

We had three meals for the first time and I was a bit nervous. Figured Sci-Fi was a good bet for lunch, since the reviews were iffy I figured we wouldn’t need to eat much. Turns out I was wrong, we all thought this place was great and the food was a big part of it. Don’t get me wrong, this place is not gourmet, it’s supposed to be a drive in and it delivers big time on drive in food, so order a burger, please.

It was a rainy morning, so we checked in a bit early for our 1:20 ADR (12:55 to be exact) and we were seated at 1:26. Our server was a charming lass from the Isle of Wight called Sarah. She was excellent, though she did not wear roller skates. She was attentive and efficient, but she really scored big time when she brought Mrs. Potts a free glow in the dark Tinkerbell because “she had to do something special for a 60th birthday.” She scored even bigger when she gave us another one, since we have to DDs in the party.

So for those who don’t know, this place is set up as a drive-in movie theater and most patrons are seated in cars. Here’s ours:


It’s a bit dark, so you might want to take digital pictures of your food just so you can see what your eating.

We started with milkshakes, of course. DH loves chocolate, but wanted to try the Oreo Milkshake, so Sarah offer to make her milkshake half and half. Apparently these are premixed, so you can’t order a chocolate Oreo milkshake.


I had the regular Oreo milkshake

Birds-eye view


On to the apps. DDs each started with sliced apples


I had the spinach and artichoke dip and chips and it was awesome. Three steps above your typical TGIFridays type fare


DW had the onion rings. These were good, but nothing special.


Mrs. Potts tried the BLT soup. I though this one was a bit strange, she liked it though.


Entrees: 4 burgers and a mistake. Please order a burger here, you won’t be disappointed.





DW ordered a chicken bruschetta sandwich. She recommends you order a burger and she normally does not eat meat (though she had 2 bites of mine).


Deserts. Again. I have to say we were pleased with this course as well.
First, Mrs. Potts’ apple crumble


DW and I each had the Peanut Butter-Chocolate Cake. This was very good.


DDs had ice cream sundaes,



I gave Sci-Fi 4.5 stars.
DW gave it 4 stars based on the bad chicken sandwich.
Mrs. Potts gave it 5 stars.
Total score – 13.5/15 stars
Total cost without DxDDP - $118.18

Tutto Italia

After a long day at Hollywood Studios, we boarded a Friendship Boat bound for Epcot. No sooner than had we left the dock, we were faced with a potty emergency. I took Ariel (the subject of said potty emergency) off the boat at the Swolphin, while the rest of our intrepid group ventured on. BTW, the potty trip was a success and we were soon on the next Epcot-bound vessel. Due to my absence from the check-in, the following is based on hearsay, conjecture and speculation. 3/5s of our party arrived at Tutto Italia at around 8 for our 8 pm ADR. The waiting area was packed in like sardines. They called names quietly, one by one in heavy Italian accents. It was quite a struggle to hear which names were being called. Finally, our group was reunited and after a bit of a wait, we were seated around 8:30. Our server was Ylenia, she was friendly and sweet, but a bit overwhelmed. She even forgot the bread and butter – we had to request it. Here’s what we got:

It was good. But it would have been better if it came out before the apps.

Speaking of apps, DW got the eggplant parm. She enjoyed it.


Mrs. Potts had the kid’s salad, since Aurora LOVES Caesar salad, but its not on the kid’s menu and they swapped.

Here’s the Caesar salad. As you can see, its not chopped, so it can be a bit of work for the diner and/or their parents.

I had the fried calamari, which was very good.

BTW, they were out of all kid’s starters, other than the green salad, so no mozzarella sticks for Ariel. I guess they didn’t anticipate the effect of free dining.

Entrees –
DDs shared the pizza and the spaghetti and meatballs from the kid’s menu



DW had the Cannelloni al Forno which was excellent


Mrs. Potts had the salmon and was very happy with it as well.


On Ylenia’s recommendation, I ordered some kind of tortellini, that was not so great and was a bit cold.


Desserts.
I had the mocha tiramisu – it was good.

DW had the profiteroles which were really good.


Here’s the dessert Mrs. Potts actually ordered. I think it was the Gianduja - Chocolate Torta


Ariel’s Mousse


Aurora’s gelato


After we finished our desserts, they comped a piece of chocolate cake and sang happy birthday in Italian to Mrs. Potts. The picture of the cake was blocked by the water glasses.

I rated Tutto Italia 3.5 stars
DW gave it 4 stars
Mrs. Potts gave it 4.5 stars
Total score 12/15 stars

Total cost without DxDDP would have been $214.07 without the wine. IMHO, this is a bit overpriced for the quality of the food and service. I admit, when it comes to good Italian food, I am a bit spoiled being from New York. This place is far better than any of the Italian food chains on I-drive and far superior to Mama Melrose, but if you’re not on the dining plan, you may not want to drop this much money for this meal.

Glad to hear you enjoyed Tutto. We have an ADR this trip and are looking forward to it. Also being original NYers we are a little picky with Italian food but figured we'd try it since we heard so many good reviews.Glad some other NYers found it to be tasty.

Tutto was tasty, especially if you're not paying out of pocket .

Pretty good for theme park food.

We have a b'fast adr at Cape May this trip. I am dissappointed after your review. We are staying at BC though and it is on our last day right before we leave to go home. We usually eat at Boma our last day (chef mickey's last year for a change) but thought it would just be easier since Cape May is right downstairs.

Tutto looks good. May have to try it. (think it is too late to get adr for this trip)

Glad you guys likes SciFi and Tutto! We're trying SciFi for the first time and Tutto is one of our standard meals. We're from the NY area too and Tutto hasn't ever disappointed. Not AMAZING but by far the best Italian we've found on property

food looks fabulous...and your family looks like you're having a lot of fun at a lot of good restaurants. Hopefully you will be able to have some time for the rides & shows...I hear Disney is pretty good at that park stuff too.
