Pop Century Food Court

We arrived at 11 am at the Pop Century Resort. We were starving. We heard that the food at the food court was good. So, we decided to give it a try. We were not desapointed.

Me



Parmesan Crusted Chicken

JF



Shrimp Lo Mein

And we both got the famous Tie-dyed Cheesecake



All of our food was very yummy. I would surely eat here again during our next trip.

Planet Hollywood at Downtown Disney

We ate here twice during our trip. JF loves this place. I think it's a little too loud, but the food is pretty good.

Me



Crab Cakes - Two jumbo lump crabcakes served with mashed potatoes and fresh sautèed vegetables

JF



Crab Cakes - Two jumbo lump crabcakes served with baked potato and fresh sautèed vegetables

The crab cakes were delicious. Another great dining experience.

We did get dessert, but I forgot to take a picture. And I really don't remember what we ate anyway.

Columbia Harbour House

We ate here in 2008, and we just love that place. One of the best quick service restaurant in MK.

Me & JF



Anchors Aweigh Sandwich and Fried Shrimp Basket with chocolate cake and yogurt

Excellent food! We always eat on the second floor overlooking the Haunted Mansion.

Liberty Tree Tavern

Another great food experience, Thanksgiving style. The only thing we didn't like was the mac 'n cheese. A little too "artificial" tasting. The rest was very good, we loved the turkey gravy. We had never had that before, so we loved that with turkey. The little rolls they served at first were TO DIE FOR. I couldn't stop eating those.

Tossed Mixed Greens, served with our special Tavern Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Roasted turkey breast, carved beef, and smoked pork loin, with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, herb bread stuffing, and Macaroni and Cheese









We will surely eat here again this year.

ABC Commissary

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!

Let's move on with the show...

ABC Commissary was one of the quick service restaurant that we liked the least.

Me



Cheeseburger - with fries and Strawberry Parfait - no sugar added

JF



Fried Fish - battered fried fish served with fries and Chocolate Mousse

My cheeseburger wasn't very good. But, JF did like his fried fish. The only good thing about my meal was the strawberry parfait with no sugar added. That little dessert was delicious. I doubt that we will eat here again this year.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater

Wow, we both loved that place. We arrived 25 minutes before our reservation and we were seated right away. The service was really great, our server was super nice and she gladly took pictures of us in the little blue car. Our meals were fantastic. The only downside : JF ordered a side of onion rings instead of fries, and I think he got like 3 onion rings. But, he said they were pretty good.

Us



Me



Shrimp Pasta - Bow tie pasta and sauteed shrimp tossed with artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, baby spinach and feta cheese



Hot Fudge Sundae - vanilla ice cream with hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry

JF



Smoked St. Louis-style Ribs - Basted with barbecue sauce served with cole slaw and onion rings



Brownie with Ice Cream and Strawberries

All was very good, and it was a fantastic atmosphere. We will eat again at Sci-Fi this year for sure.
