There's a Chipmunk Eating Your Head!-Dining Review(Complete !! 12/30)

Hey Everyone !! Welcome to my Dining Report !! We went to Walt Disney World from November 22 thru November 27 and we stayed in a one bedroom villa at Boardwalk. This is the first time we had gone to Disney during Christmas and we were really excited to see the decorations and experiencing the atmosphere at the Boardwalk.

Cast of Characters:

Me - 43 yr old Irrigation Designer, my DH, my DS12 and my DD9. Here's a picture of us on this trip.



And I would just like to say, for those of you reading, please feel free to stop in and say hello. I just love seeing everyone's comments and sharing experiences.

Dinner - Boardwalk To Go

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 – Dinner at Boardwalk to go.

We got to the Boardwalk about 8:30 PM and checked in and then we decided to find some grub. The kids were starving so we scoped out our food options and the kids spied hot dogs so we took a look at the menu.





I got a hot dog basket



Very yummy hot dog. Warm and juicy. Tasted like all beef hot dog. Good flavor. Fries were good. Hot, salty and crispy. Carbohydrate goodness !!
DD got mozzarella sticks



Just your regular mozzarella sticks. Good and filling

DS got some nachos



This was your basic chips with hot cheese from a pump. But DS loves these so he enjoyed them. I personally like some more zing to my cheese sauce – a little jalapeno heat. But for kids or grown-ups that like milder food, these are perfect.

And DH got a foot long hot dog which he loaded up with toppings.



He said this was a very good hot dog. He really enjoyed it.

We also got a diet coke and a Powerade to drink. All of this cost about $26. We did get the dining plan, but I don't think this stand took CS credits.

It was a really pretty night and we grabbed a table and enjoyed our food. It was really good. DS still talks about the nachos. They weren't anything special, but it isn't anything that I buy at home. so he really enjoyed them.

Some Boardwalk photos





















We decided to get some pastries at the Boardwalk Bakery for breakfast the following morning since RD at AK was at 7:00 AM

DS is going to be so happy that Boardwalk to go has mozzarella sticks! It's little things that make him happy.

The only other place we've found them was LTT. Thanks for the tip!

I have lots of resort photos in my TR if you want to go over and take a look. We LOVED the Boardwalk and very much want to stay there again. It was so nice to be that close to Epcot. I didn't get to spend enough time there as I would have liked this trip.

We LOVED it !! The kids said it was the best water slide ever !! Even DH said so. We felt like were right in the middle of everything. And Epcot was just a five minute walk away. You will love it too !! And like I mentioned to LoriJune, go on over to TR if you want to see more photos. I have TONS !!

Wednesday, November 23, 2011 - Breakfast

Boardwalk Bakery pastries.

So we wake up EARLY – about 6:00 AM – so we can get to rope drop at Animal Kingdom by 7:00 AM. There was much complaining and whining about how early it was and it was rough going getting everyone up.

We had our treats from Boardwalk Bakery for breakfast.

DH and I each had a Bluberry muffin.



I had wanted a chocolate croissant, but they were out when we bought them the night before. These muffins were still very fresh and moist and really hit the spot with a hot cup of coffee which we brewed in the room

DS had a cinnamon bun



It took me a while to get him to eat it, but after he got started he really polished it off. And he said, “hey, that was a really good cinnamon bun.”

And DD just had some Special K. She ate it dry. Hey, it is what she wanted and she ate something, so that was good.

So exciting for you !! I am super jealous !! You will love all of the decorations and since you will be so close to Epcot, take some time to go and see the storytellers in the countries. We didn't get the chance and I deeply regret it. My BFF that was there saw some of them and she said they were really great ! Have a Grey Goose Slushie for me !!
