Epcot Full Day



Now onto Epcot for our Full Day.

We don't really do breakfast ever so didn't have breakfast today.

For lunch we went to Sunshine Seasons.

I had the Asian Side and had the spicy chicken with the noodles and broccoli.


The noodles were good. The chicken was really not good! It looked and tasted like pork, which i thought was weird. It also was not spicy. It said it was supposed to be spicy but it was not spicy at all. The broccoli was okay but should have been cooked a little bit more.

Corey had some turkey and cheese deli sandwich which was HUGE!!! He took off the peppers that were on the sandwich and he said he liked it without the peppers. His meal came with potato salad, which was not your typical potato salad. I tried a bite of it and did NOT like it at all. It was not a mayo based salad it was an oil based and had a funky flavor.

For dessert I had the


Tiramisu....It was NOT good. I regret getting it, I wish I would have got the Pumpkin Creme Brulee. The bread part was soaked in liquid and it was very watery!

Corey had the



Chocolate Mousse Cake. It was very good, huge, and very rich!!

Now onto Epcot Snacks. We do love to snack and I used like 3 snack credits this day! Haha

I started with a Radeburger Pilsner.


One word...NASTY!! I threw away after taking 3 sips. I tried to like it but just didn't. It tasted like rubbing alcohol. I went to Germany about two years and really liked their beer, but this was just gross..Sucks because I spent almost 7 dollars on it.

They have a new Christmas Market in Germany (at least it said it was new on the Map) and they serve German beer and a Christmas wine (Gluhwein). Here is the menu.


To get the nasty beer taste out of my mouth I had a Kaki Gori!


This is my all time favorite snack at Disney World, especially on a hot day. I get the honeydew melon flavor. I could tell they premade the ice because it was in chunks as if it melted a little bit. Oh well, still good!!

We then went to Karamell Kuche.



I loved this chocolate covered strawberry. So juicy and good chocolate.

Corey had a dark chocolate covered marshmallow stick with caramal drizzle.


He loved it! He even took his own food picture and sent it to his mom!

Random pictures of the cases at Karamell Kuche. This is such a great addition to the World Showcase!!!



I also tried a Grey Goose Citron Slushie!!! SOOOO good!!! Corey does not drink alcohol and he even thought this was good. Tasted like freshly squeezed lemondade with a hint of vodka. Not overpowering at all.



Dinner was Le Cellier. I was soo excited that I got this reservation. I got an email from the November Cancelled Thread and as soon as I saw it, I booked it!!

I had the Mushroom Filet Mignon (sorry no picture). One word- incredible! The truffle butter sauce was what made this dish. The risotto was really good too. I ordered medium and it was more like medium rare and the woman next to me sent hers back because it was not done enough so if you are unsure of the temp, go up. A lot of people on here mention the saltiness of their meals and they are right it is salty but I didn't think it was too salty but I probabaly use too much salt everyday. It definitely didn't make the meal bad, though.

Corey had the New York Strip and he really liked his.

Oh yeah, forget to mention the soup!! I tried a cup of the Cheese Soup and it was very good! Now i know why everyone raves about it. I dipped the pretzel in the soup like everyone says but I didn't think it was good like that. They are both too good(the soup and pretzel) and need to be enjoyed separately! The pretzel bread was amazing!!! The other two breads were not good at all! If you go just ask for pretzel bread. That is what I will be doing next.

This was my second favorite meal of the trip but the only reason it wasn't number 1 is because of the dessert. I think they need to revamp their dessert menu. I had the Maple Creme Brulee.



I didn't like this Creme Brulee and I like all dessert. It was warm and very soft. I like creme brulee hard and cold. The flavor was good but it needed to have a different texture.

Corey had the Smores.



He said his dessert was "allright". The presentation was cool but that's about it.

Overall, I have come to the conclusion le Cellier is NOT over rated. It was so good. My entree was unbelievable, the soup and pretzel bread was very good. The dessert was not good though.

The total was $101 for 2 Diet Cokes, Cheese Soup Cup, Creme Brulee, Mushroom Filet, NY Strip, and Smores. What a good deal with the dining plan. We paid $100 to upgrade from Quick Service to Basic Dining Plan so this meal alone was the cost to upgrade.
Our server was Jillian, and she was the best server.

After that we went to Candlight Processional with 20 minutes before the show and were able to get in right away and we got the PERFECT seats!!!! They opened up reserved seating and we rushed to get one of those and were smack dab in the middle! I wanted to stay for Illuminations but I was so cold so we went back to the hotel.

OH YEAH, gosh I am so forgetful. I also got fresh Caramel Corn from Karamell Kuche. The BEST caramel corn ever, so soft, not crunchy at all.

Some PhotoPass Pics from this day.





I don't know if the tree is supposed to look like this but I think the middle set of lights were out!! They should have fixed that, it looks bad.

Joining in and enjoying your Food reviews.
We went to LeCellier for our first time and we were surprised it was really good. I had the soup too and I didn't like the soup and preztel together...I liked eating it separately. I got the same dish as you and I loved it. I'm glad we tried it and we had a great experience. You did great taking pictures of the food. I tried to do that but with a 5 yr old and I was always ready to dig in. I have to try to do my first Food review...got back 2 days ago, trying to do laundry, I have to get holiday stuff around and still buy presents. I'm trying to do photopass editting so I can order it before Christmas and do holiday cards

Thats okay it was still edible. I will mostly eat anything even if i don't like it that much. The only thing I couldn't finish was that nasty German beer!!

Hollywood Studios Day!



Now onto our Hollywood Studios Day!

Now this day we did actually have breakfast. I couldn't pass up Starring Rolls

I had the chocolate eclair filled with creme.


Now that is YUMMY! It comes from the case so it is cold. Everything on this is the perfect consistency and the cold creme mixed with the pastry is so good!

Corey had the cinnamon roll.



He said he liked his cinnamon roll, but nothing special.

I wanted to try Starring Rolls Banana Split. Has anyone had it??? It looks good.

For lunch we went to Pizza Planet!



We got pepperoni pizza with a side caesar salad and Mickey Rice Krispie Treat! We always go to HS in the middle of the week so this pizza is such a much needed break from Chicken!!! The pizza is actually good. This pizza was a little watery but it still has a very good flavor and Disney's pizza dough is very good! The ceasar salad is really nice too. I love how the dressing is already mixed it.

The dessert is just a mickey rice krispy treat but I never get them during the week so it is nice to have for dessert here, and it isn't too sweet which is good.

Dinner Time!! We had a reservation at Cape May Cafe. Corey and I both love crab legs so we had a reservation at Captains Grille because I knew they had crab legs. Then I found out about Cape May buffet with the addition of Crab legs and switched it immediately!!

We got in right at time and got sat at a nice little booth hidden away.

I tried the salads first and the clam chowder.



Everything on this plate was very good. There is a Cape May Salad with blue cheese and cranberries. I loved that salad. The fruit was good, the cous cous was good. And my personal favorite was the tomato and fresh mozzarella salad! I love anything with fresh mozarella. The soup was good but not outstanding.

Up next was the hot side.



This has corn bread, Steak, Mashed Potatoes, and some other beef mixture.

Everything was okay besides the corn bread which was amazing! I love corn bread and that corn bread was perfect.

Next up the crab legs!!



The main reason we came to this buffet plus some red skin potatoes. The red skin potatoes were good! I would prefer if they were sliced in a pan and buttered in a pan but they were cooked perfectly.

The crab legs here were not the best quality but they tasted fine. I would say about 50% of the meat came out fine (in one piece). I think I had 4 plates of crab legs and Corey said he had 14 claws!! We ate them out of crab legs!

What I mean by not the best quality is that they were dirty(black and brown spots) and a lot of them were missing fingers. But like I said they tasted fine so that is all that matters.

Now time for dessert!



This has raspberry cheesecake, flan, Oreo Bon Bons, and Key Lime Tarts.

The raspberry cheesecake tasted like nothing, I could not taste any raspberry. I thought i was going to love their raspberry cheesecake but it just didn't taste right. The Key Lime Tarts were good. The Flan was okay. But I didn't eat second of any of those desserts because I was filling up on the.....



Oreo BON BONS!!!! These little beauties are SOOOO good!!! I had 5!!! I cut them open so you could see what they look like in the middle. They are so good. The coating is crunchy, the oreo is soft, and the creme filling is perfect. I would go back just for those.

We were joking that next time we come to WDW we are going to pretend like we are meeting someone and then on the way out sneak an Oreo Bon Bon because the dessert is right by the door.

I must have not taken a picture, but they have a lobster and cheese tortellini that was really good! That was the only other thing besides the crab and Oreo Bon Bons that I really enjoyed.

I would go back to Cape May next time. It was a good value, a really nice place, and good food.

Our server even said that when he comes there to eat he only gets Oreo Bon Bons and Crab Legs.

I lost my receipt for here but I think the total was around $70-$75. We only got Diet Cokes.

A helpful hint that I forgot to mention earlier-- At almost every counter service you get a receipt/coupon for 20% off at Emporium at MK, Mouse Gear at Epcot, Mickeys of Hollywood or Keystone Clothiers at HS, Island Mercantile at AK, or World of Disney at DTD. You can only use your coupon until Noon. I think this is a great deal! I used my coupon once and saved 14 dollars! If you plan on buying a lot of Disney merchandise try to use these coupons at only the stores listed. I am not sure how long they will be printing these coupons off for.

We love Pizza Planet! To hear it was "watery" is pretty gross, but like you said-- a welcome respite from chicken!

Enjoy your reviews! We live in the twin cities too that was some snowfall we are in the south metro where we got 20in that all arrived two days after we got back from fl. We where at WDW the same time you where (Nov 28-Dec7) and had a blast.

I am right with you on the 2 top tables! We had them at Chef Mickey's and 50's prime time. 50's was ok as it was a sit down but Chef Mickey’s was kind of a hassle.

DH loved the Cheddar Cheese soup at Le Cellier Paul our server gave him a card with the recipe, he is making it for a Christmas party we are going to tomorrow.
