Cinnamon Roll Tour 2009 - 14 days of free DDP!

Intro...

me: andrea 39, dreading the big 40 later this year. love to eat chicken, veggies, chicken, fruit, chicken, cake, chicken, salmon, chocolate, pasta, chicken...and the odd glass of wine

DH: chris 46 (hahaha) loves meat, chocolate, any type of spicy food, cake, bread, beer...and the odd glass of wine

DD12:Megan, loves food and is willing to try anything, favorites types are mexican, indian, moroccan, chinese,italian, cake, biscuits, ice-cream...and the odd glass of cola

DD7: Ameila (mimi), hates food, only eats to survive, will eat when force fed; prefers cookies, crisps, ice-cream, cake, carrot! and yoghurt ( but only apricot) ....and the odd glass of cola

I have read sooooo many food reports that I felt it only proper and correct to reciprocate. Please forgive any bad photography. Remember...they may have been in focus for me ( the odd glass of wine may have multiplied )

We enjoyed 14 nights at Old Key West on the free Disney Dining Plan - YIPEE!!!

I booked ahead for most of the table service meals, and had a rough idea of where best to use our quick service and snack credits.( okay, I have researched and had a darn good plan of where, when etc. ...only toilet breaks were not scheduled, you get the picture?)

I have taken piccies of most things that we consumed... and I have the extra pounds ( all 8 of them ) to prove it.

The table service Reviews: where and when:

26th Aug: Les Chefs De France( lunchy munchy) OOP
26th Aug: Crystal Palace (dinner buffet with characters)
27th Aug: Tutto Italia ( dinner with style)
28th Aug: Cindy's Royal Table ( breakfast mi Lord!)
30th Aug: Olivia's Cafe (laid back n chillin' )
31st Aug: Hoop-De-Doo ( yee - ha )
1st Sept: California Grille ( oh yeah- this is the life)
2nd Sept: Narcoossee's ( who'elsee? meeze)
3rd Sept: Boma ( bring on the stripey pud)
5th Sept: T-Rex (roar!) OOP
7th Sept: Coral Reef ( you are my squishy... choc wave)
8th Sept: O'Hana (breakfast- bye bye Disney, love you Stitch )

Ok. we also have drinks, snacks and quick service thrown in for good measure.

.
.
.
.
.
so to start with we arrived after a long 9 1/2 hour flight, checked in and the girls we're a wee bit peckish as the food on the plane was gruesome, how can chicken become grey? I do not know.. Me and DH ate ours as we had paid good money for our flights and by-eck we were going to eat it. Even if it made us ill.
We popped into the shop at OKW and purchased 2 items from our snack credits.








The cookie was really soft and delish. The rice crispy treat was a lot harder than expected. I do not have the receipt for this as my DH disposed of it. He was 'in training' for the rest of the trip. The girls soon set to work and made them history! It was also nice to let then have something straight off that they wanted , I sometimes get a bit fed up of saying no.

Next up...Chef De france and Remy

Great start! I'm hoping Remy will still be at Chefs De France at Christmas (and also hoping I can get an ADR!)

day - Wednesday 26th August 2009.

first up is breakfast; We got 3 Cinnamon rolls from Goods to Go. 'Come to Mama' We used our snack credits for these but they would cost $2.59 each.

Amelia had a bowl of cereal, fruit loops - far to many E numbers in there for my liking but 'hey -ho' we are on our hols, so E numbers and calories don't count



Can anyone see a hidden Mickey anywhere?

Lunch at Les Chefs De France

We had an ADR booked for 1.20pm, but we were all really hungry around noon, as we were in world showcase, i enquired at the podium to see if we could get in earlier. this wasn't a problem and within minutes we were called in to be seated.

We were placed in the convervatory bit, along side the main avenue into France area. It was very light and airy, but man those tables are close together. Me and Amelia sat along the bench at the back and I could hardly squeeze in between the tables.

The menu cover :


We dicided to pay OOP for this meal as Nanna had given us some dollars to have a meal. Thanks Nanna! the adults opted for the price fixe menu at $20.00 each. ameila choose off the kids menu. She was quite happy colouring in the little booklet that kids get.

For starter 3 adults had : Soupe a L'Oignon Gratinee


picci of the bread :



The soup was heavenly. It was scolding hot and the chessey top prevented it from cooling down,The bowls look really small but there was a whole lot of soup in there. It was delish and I was very happy with my choice! I could have done with a knife and fork as well as a spoon as the cheesy, bready, oniony bits were hard to catch with a spoon Have no fear, I caught then all in the end!

The bread was ok, amelia ate a lot of it.

Amelia had : Friand au Fromage $4.00



This was also very tasty. The pastry as crumbly and flaky and the cheese filing was rich and creamy. She didn't each much of it, but as I've said she is such a picky eater. We all polished it off.


For Entrees: I had Quiche Lorraine.


I adore quiche The quiche was massive, the size of a side plate. It was rich and creamy and light with just the right balance of cheese to bacon/ham. I really enjoyed this, but it was too big for me to finish. I also really struggled to eat all of the tomatoes, I had so many to get through - the lettuce was a bit limp and wilted in places, maybe my plate went under a lamp before it was brought out. I left the lettuce.

Chris had : Gratin de Macaroni



He said this was very tasty, rich and creamy. He is not one to talk about food ...he prefers to scoff it

Megan had : Croque Monsieur & sa salade verte ( ham and cheese toastie)



She loved this. thick slices of melted cheese and plenty of thick sliced ham and nicely toasted off.

Ameila had : Croquette de boeuf en Brioche ( burger in a bun) $8.00



as per usual she tasted it and then declared she was full . we all tried a bit, the beef as really nice and the bun very yummy. The fries were a little pale looking, but tasty enough.

DH was begining to doubt the existence of a certain rat and kept asking me where he was.( quietly... as the girls didn't know about him yet! )

next up - desserts and a visit form a rat!

E's are the E numbers of additives added to foods (eg E121) mainly for colour or flavor. some foods in U.K. are loaded with E numbers. If a food is bright it's got a whole load of EEEEEE's! The good news is that they have to be listed on the label!

Hi Andrea! Great start to your reveiws so far. I love the quiche at Chefs de France ... it's one of the reasons that I love having lunch there. I'm going to try to force myself to order something different when we lunch there next month but I'm already pretty sure I'm doomed for failure.

Looking forward to reading more!
