I'm so glad that you enjoyed Yak & Yeti. We went in 2008 and absolutely LOVED it.

I'm in.

I will say this, I think you missed out at Yak and Yehti when you didn't order appetizers. We felt they were some of the best of our last trip.

Enjoy reading your report so far.

Oh, and my wife wanted to know what you had for breakfast in those first pictures. Some sort of ham?

Loving your report so far . Your style reminds me of the "infamous" Sonya (aka Pooh's-Honey-Pot), who we were soooooo lucky to meet (along with her charming husband Tony ) on our cruise last year .

It really was delicious - the tuna steak was enormous! I love dishes with lots of different componants to them.

It was great - we all really enjoyed it and that's quite a coup when you have four people with differing tastes - especially teenagers! Sarah and Kate kept wanting to adopt various servers - the cute ones and the friendly ones - Trisha was one they wanted to bring home with them!

I don't really know why we didn't order appetizers here. Even though we were on the dining plan and appetizers were extra, we usually got them and paid OOP for them. I think it was just a really hot day and we needed drinks rather than food - the entrees and desserts were more than enough.

It is bacon on the breakfast plates! Very popular in England - but not as crispy as the bacon in USA.

Thank you - what an honour!

I was disappointed not to bump into any other DIS people at WDW - maybe I just wasn't observant enough! I know that Karen (Dizneeat) was at OKW at the same time as us but I didn't see her!

Thanks to everyone for reading - Hopefully I'll have another update soon!

Friday 13th (!) August

Today Simon went off to the Star Wars Celebration V convention and left me and the girls to our own devices.

We chose to go to EPCOT and the plan was to eat around World Showcase (and maybe drink a little too )

We had a play in Future World first and then wandered to WS. The new counter service in Mexico looks to be coming along well. There was a booth selling counter service food nearby but we didn't try it.

Sarah demanded that we went to Norway and the Kringla Bakeri Og so that she could get her beloved Cloudberry Horn:





Kate also had one of these but I decided to go wild and try something different. So I had a sweet pretzel with almonds. It was sweet and delicious but huge! It could have fed two people easily:



I was tempted to scoff it down but I knew there was plenty of other food I wanted to try so I only ate most of it

We used five snack credits for this as we had a sprite and a coffee also

After our delicious snack we wandered along some more. By the time we got to America Kate decided she wanted some chicken nuggets - so we went into the Liberty Inn and shared a portion (Sorry - no picture!)

We also shared a Rocky Road chocolate mousse for pudding -and this was yummy!

This cost us one counter service credit.

After a while, we ended up where I really wanted to be - Morocco! I really wanted to try a meal at Tangierine cafe.

We got a lamb wrap to share (I must admit I ate most of it):



This was absolutely delicious! The lamb was beautifully seasoned and tender - the flat bread was soft and wonderful. The salads and the dressings made everything taste so light and fresh. I think this may have been my favourite counter service meal in the whole of the time we were there. I loved it!

The dessert was baclava:



It was just a bit too sweet for us but we really enjoyed our meal here - especially as we had a great view of Mo-rockin' and the belly dancer!

Another counter service credit (Simon had told us to go wild with the CS meals as we had loads left on our last holiday - as you can see we didn't really keep our end up on this day!)

As we wandered into France I decided that I really HAD to try a Grey Goose Citroen Slush:





Which was very nice and refreshing - but I've decided that I'm not so keen on frozen drinks as they tickle my throat and make me cough!

We went back to the villa to find that Simon had returned. After a bit of a rest we headed out to Downtown Disney for a bit of a wander and some supper.

We ended up at Wolfgang Puck Express in an attempt to spend some more counter service credits!

I had the chinois chicken salad:



This was really tasty - but an enormous salad. I ate most of the chicken and the crispy wontons but had to leave a lot of the salad. I had a creme brule for dessert:



Yummy! Simon had a BBQ chicken pizza and then ate most of kate's Pepperoni pizza! Sarah had a chicken pocket sandwich - again it was huge! Simon got a cookie for dessert and Sarah had a vanilla frozen yoghurt:



If we had been paying OOP for this meal it would have cost $77-32

Simon and Kate went back to OKW and left me and Sarah to do a bit of shopping. And I knew what I wanted to buy!

I had been dying to go to Goofy's Candy Co. to make my own snacks - I never got to do it last time.

So I went to make these babies:





Pretzel rods dipped in milk chocolate, crushed butterfingers, pecan nuts and peanut butter chips - finally drizzled with dark chocolate - oh yes!

Back at the villa I popped them into the fridge to enjoy the next day - and enjoy them I did!

Coming up: May the Force be with us! Our food goes Sci-fi!

That lamb wrap looks delicious, and I've never even had lamb! Maybe I'll have to give that a try in Nov! Keep the reviews coming!

Yum! We've never done Goofy's, but after seeing your creation, I think I am persuaded to give it a try. Looking forward to your Sci-Fi review - I have a reservation there for our next trip, and it will be a first for us.
