Send in the Wheelbarrows, I Can't Walk or Move UPDATED 11/7/10 Captain Cooks

Hi All,
We are getting ready to head out on vacation. Only 2 weeks to go. I'm already feeling the need for sweatpants, hooded sweatshirts and a month at the gym. Does that stop me? I think not! Here's a little about us:

Me 28:

Loves anything and everything baseball especially the Minnesota Twins, Disney World and anything fun. Favorite princess is Jasmine. Likes the magic of Disney to be just that, magic. Is a really picky eater but will try most things once. Favorite WDW restaurant is Kona Cafe dinner. Most looking forward to this trip.... Cookes of Dublin and Le Cellier


Brandon 13:

Brother to Crystal. Blah blah blah teenager! How I don't miss those days. Likes fast rides, magic and any behind the scenes info he can get his little hands on. If he knows how a ride works or any of the special effects it has plug your ears because he is 10 seconds away from blabbing the secrets. Likes to eat but not willing to try new things. His favorite WDW restaurant is Whispering Canyon Cafe. Most looking forward to this trip....The Wave and Cookes of Dublin


Mary 57:

Mother to Crystal and Brandon. Has an obsession with WDW. She wears her "handy dandy" bottle holder , camera, pin trading lanyard and a fan *see above photo* (as if people can't tell we're from Minnesota enough ) all around her neck. Doesn't like roller coasters but will go on them if we drag her but keeps her eyes shut. Will eat just about anything. Always willing to try something new. Favorite WDW restaurant is Kona Cafe also. Most looking forward to this trip....Les Chefs de France and Wolfgang Puck Express


Table Service Meals:
The Wave (D)
Kona Cafe (D)
Kona Cafe (D) Changed to Tony's Town Square (L)

I know what you mean Im already getting that fat feeling and i didnt even eat anything yet, just thinking of all of the food we are going to eat. I was doing my packing today and definitely brought a few pair of stretchy pants for the last few days. I usually start off with my tighter fitting shorts in the beginning but by the 4th day I have to switch to stretchys because i cant fit into them anymore comfortably. I already accept i will gain 10 pounds regardless of how much i walk but i dont mind i will worry about that when i get home.

Changes Already

Sheesh after I wrote this nifty report, we changed a few things around.

Instead of 1900 Park Fare Breakfast we changed to 1900 Park Fare Dinner

Instead of Big River Grille we changed to The Wave.

I'm done switching ressies around! Bring on the fatty, high sugared awesomeness!

I Did It Again! Arrrggghhh

More changes:
Changed from Le Cellier lunch to Le Cellier dinner do to these fabulous boards! We have been trying and trying to get Le Cellier at dinner especially since they decided to make it 2 TS credits at dinner. So here I've been lurking and lurking on the Aug/Sept ressie cancellation threads and low and behold we actually got one today!

Had to keep the pixie dust blowing so I posted my lunch ressie and within a few moments, someone was able to take that. Now I feel like everything is set and I'm so stoked can't wait.

The countdown is on! T-10 days until we head out and my tummy is grumbling with anticipation!

The Wave take 2

So I had this beautiful report all typed up and the good old DisBoard decided to log me out while in the middle of writing it so when I went to post it never went through thus losing everything I entered so sorry but this is going to be a condensed version.

We had a 5:15 ressie for The Wave our first night there. We arrived early and checked in around 4:45. We were promptly seated at 5pm. Our server was new and a little shakey but such a nice person. We were asked our drink order and brought out bread.

The restaurant:


My cappuccino:


The bread:

The bread was fresh and great and the butter was phenomenal! It was layered with sea salt yummo!

My entree choice: Grilled Beef Tenderloin with a Port Wine Jus, Potato and Onion Gratin, and Summer Ratatouille

The beef was tender and cooked to a perfect medium like I ordered. The potatoes were the highlight of my dish though. They were like hasbrowns with nummy seasonings. I couldv'e eaten a whole plate of potatoes alone! I didn't try the ratatoullie but mom thought it was good.

Brandon's entree choice: Apple Brined Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon Sweet Mashed Potatoes, Warm Spinach-Bacon Salad, and Sassafras Jus

He thought this was good and the portions were perfect. Thought the spinach salad was the best yet!

Mary's entree choice: Chili-marinated Flat Iron Steak with warm Fingerling Potato Salad and Avocado Mousse

Steak was cooked to a perfect medium. The potato salad was more like roased potatoes. Thought the salad was the best thing on the plate.

The desserts:
Brandon and I ordered the No Sugar Added Desserts which came with three sample sized desserts Chocolate-Mint Mousse, Fresh Berries with Panna Cotta and Vanilla Bean Créme Brûlée

Creme brulee was the best I've ever tasted! Brandon thought the mint mousse was bitter and tasted like coffee. I thought it was a bit sour but still liked it. I didn't try the berries cause I was too full but Brandon loved his.

Mary ordered the Decadent Flavors which came with Blueberry Compote with Yogurt Gelato
Lemon Cornbread with Vanilla Panna Cotta and Chocolate Mousse with Salted Caramel Sauce

Thought this was good and also enjoyed the three different mini desserts!

All and all I would recommend this restaurant. It was handy to get to and handy to go to MK after dinner.

Stay tuned, next up......................
Sunshine Seasons and Boulangerie Patisserie
