Smile Oh my god, they killed Kenny!!!(with free food) and pics, Teppan Edo, CHH 10/25

Hello everyone

Time to try , once again, a dining report. I attempted one last December, but due to unforseen circumstances, never finished it. Bear with me and hopefully this one will come to a natural end.

But first up, an introduction :

Me, food loving Disney Freak. September/ October is my favorite time to visit WDW. There's normally low crowds, not too bad temperatues, MNSSHP and F&W festival.

Mica, DD Loves Disney, still upset that they closed Pleasure Island right as she finally was old enough to go have a drink there.

Kenny, Mica's BF who couldnt come on this trip with us. She took her favorite ewok, from about 12 years ago on the trip in his place. He was our mascot and attracted more than his share of attention. He seemed to be determined to have more fun than both of us.

















Mica and I had gone on a girl's only trip Dec11-16, 2008. She became sick from what we thought was the flu right before our trip. We ended up missing some meals and attractions becase she kept feeling so ill. After we came home, she began to feel better but right after Christmas she became very ill again. Finally on January 2 she went to the ER with a temperature, swollen abdomen and an inability to stand up straight. She was diagnosed with complicated appendixitis. 4 hospitalizations, 12 weeks with a drain protruding from her abdomen and 1 operation latter she was finally ok. This trip she has promised not to have any appendix problems, probably because she doesnt have one anymore.

Our list of restaurants we tried:
Sunshine Seasons - lunch
Tutto Italia - dinner
Boma - breakfast
Tangerine Cafe - dinner
F&W snacking
Sassagoula Floatworks - breakfast
Animal Kingdom Picnic in the Park - lunch
WPE - dinner, lunch
Teppan Edo - lunch twice
Columbia Harbor House - dinner
Main St Bakery - breakfast
Kona - dinner
Cosmic ray's lunch
Wishes Dessert Party
LeCellier - dinner
Goofy's Candy Company
GFC - lunch
POFQ food to go

Will we make it through all these meals or will free dining kill Kenny ( and us ). Stay tuned for the next installment....
G20 hits Pittsburgh, or I've got to get away

Thanks for reading

I had to laugh at Kenny the Ewok. He got beaded and is sporting a fancy button.

Poor Mica. I hope this trip went more smoothly!

G20 hits Pittsburgh, or I've got to get away 9/24/09

We got up at the lovely early morning hour of 4:15 am for our trip to the airport. Since it was the first day of the G20 summit we wanted to arrive early enough to get through any closed roads, extra security or protestors. Traffic was light and we made it to the airport by 5:30 am. Michaela and I decided to play " count the security guards " at the airport. After dropping our bags at SW's outdoor baggage checkin, with the first two security guards there, we walked into the airport. " Morning ladies, " 3 guards greeted us just inside the door. After a quick restroom stop we got onto the down escalator for the security line. Going down the escalator all we could see was a sea of blue shirted security agents. OK, we're down with this game already. One of the TSA guards even had Michaela pull Kenny from out of her purse to ride through the scanning machine. Once we finally got through the security screening we got on the people mover to the airport terminal. Once there we found.... you guessed it.... another large group of TSA secirty agents. We stopped at a breakfast kiosk for a quick bite before our flight.

2 bagels, a bottled water and V8 Fusion $10
Geeze and they say WDW food is expensive.
The worse part was we had to wait almost 15 minutes to get the bagels toasted. I guess they had to go through security too.




Once we boarded our flight everything went well. In a little over 2 hours we were landing at Orlando. We bypassed the ME checkin desk and we seated immediately on our bus. POFQ was the first stop and by 9:45 am we were at the online checkin line at the resort. Our room wasnt ready yet so we decided to go to Epcot to ride a couple rides and have some lunch. Entering the park we stopped to admire the F&W decor then made some quick stops at Spaceship Earth, Soarin', Figment and Honey I Blew up the Audience.


By then it was almost 12:30 so we went back to the land to Sunshine Seasons. They have a nice selection of salads, sandwiches, asian and grilled foods there along with little grab and go items like sushi, fruit cups and a bakery display.

Michaela had the Caesar salad with chicken, creme brulee and a chocolate milk








I had the California Roll Sushi, fruit tulip and water.







Everything we had tasted freshly made. Mica's salad was huge. It was full of grilled chicken and had just the right amount of dressing. I saw on Laura's post that she had the roasted beet salad and it lacked enough dressing. This one was just right. She said the creme brulee was very good. This is one of her favorite WDW desserts so I'm sure you'll see her having it again during our trip.
The Sushi was good. Nothing exotic but it hit the spot. The fruit tulip was ok. I just ate the fresh fruit and the custard, the crust was a bit hard. All in all a good first meal. 2 CS

After lunch we walked over to the festival center and looked around some then went back to POFQ to see if our room was ready yet. It was very hot and humid that day and we were hoping to check in and get a shower and change before our ADR at Tutto Italia tongiht.

Next up...
Will the waiters be as cute as the ones in December? Only time will tell.

Woohoo! You started with food!

Sunshine Seasons is a good spot for quick service. Great start so far.

LMAO! You know, I am sitting here with my macBook in my lap and DH and DD#1 to the right of me and I turn the screen towards them, pointing to the creme brulee and the fruit tulip and I say, "We are so going to Sunshine Season in December!!"

For the past 2 trips we missed this counter service and it looks so good. Now we have affirmation we missed out and we are definitely not missing out again

Love your pics, love Kenny!!! Can't wait for more!
