Nicki,
Thanks for posting you report, I should be asleep, but had to finish reading.
We were at the MSM bakery the first week of the month, the Cinnamon buns were the old style. Big tray fresh out of the oven. Got me a center one, with the extra drippings!
You and Todd no way 20 years, you are a spring chicken.

Nikki, I love your reviews and enjoy reading them. I have a couple of questions.

Which one do you recommend, Citricos or Yachtsmans?
Also should we go to Cape May for the fried cod or the shrimp?

Hmmm. I really wanted to try San Angel Inn, Not so sure now???

Makes me want to go back soon too! The rolls at Cape May are incredible, I could live off of those!

The only time that we have ever dined there, was a few years ago..and it was not good. But, now I am finally willing to give it another try.

Thanks again for another yummy dining report!
So glad you liked them! Cape May is awesome, for both meals...we will always go back to those meals. We may have had a bad item here or there but overall the food is fantastic.

Oh you lucky dog! I wish they had them that way when we were there, that is how they used to serve them to us! Todd and I met when we were just 18...he says I stole his youth

Wow that is a tough one....our favorite place out of all of WDW is Citricos so I would have to go for that, better atmosphere too.

We went to Cape May for both cod and shrimp and the cod was much better

Do you like spicy foods? If so then I say go for SAI...we have enjoyed it in the past but this time not so much, hope it was just a fluke

First things first, got to feed the man as he was grouchy on the way up...what I didnt know was he skipped lunch so we could leave at 2pm. All I know was he called me to say lets leave earlier than 4pm, I have learned not to ask questions and just get going as soon as I get the word from him!

As soon as we pull up to valet I am informed that he is so hungry he is gonna pass out.

I told him that we had ressies for Il Mulino at 8pm...why so late? he says. Well pal, you told me that you were leaving work at 5pm and it takes us 3 hours to get here and Voila, 8 pm it is. Apparently that was way too late and he didnt want to see if they would seat us early (my guess is he wasnt "feeling" Italian although when I booked the reservation it was FINE with him .... but I digress).

His answer to everything? Lets go get something in Epcot. Thankfully he meant just counter service because if he thought I was going to track down a TS in this short notice he is crazier than I thought

After we checked in and left our luggage in the hands of Bell Services we walked out and saw the boat was waiting for us...perfect! Nice empty boat, gorgeous weather..this is looking to be another wonderful trip, as soon as I feed him that is!

Popped into Epcot with no waiting, no crowds at all. They are starting to set up for the Flower and Garden show and lots of the topiaries are on display.

So, were do you want to eat Todd? And please do not make me give you the run down on who has what, you come here often enough to know that yourself! Heads we go left, tails we go right....Heads it is!

We pass England and Canada and stop at Mexico...the aroma of the CS stand there was too good for him to pass up as he stopped short causing me to bump into him....he is like a tracker dog, smells food, stops and bolts for it!

After perusing the menu he looks to me and the conversation goes a little something like this:

TODD: What do I want?

ME: (I say nothing as I am foolish enough to think he is talking to himself)

TODD: Hello? You listening to me? What do I want?

ME: What are you asking me for?

TODD: Because I cannot see the menu!

ME: Told ya you need an eye exam

TODD: This is not a time to be funny...I am starving (well then you shouldnt have married a comedienne!)

You do NOT mess with this man when he is hungry! So I read him the choices and:

TODD: What are you getting?

ME: Nothing, I am not feeling Mexican (LOVE that I can use his phrase right back on him!)

TODD: (Completely oblivious to my smart aleck moment) Well I am going to get the nachos, you can have some if you want (Oh jeez thanks)

So we order nachos and they are ready lickity split. We sit along the water, he starts munching away and says to me, You have to try them, they are excellent. Well I am thinking, how good can they be, they are just nachos??

I am wrong, again. They are soooo good! The chips are hot and crunchy and salty but not too much. Lots of ground beef, salsa, cheese sauce (SAUCE people - not the shredded kind!), black beans and sour cream....they were awesome! We snacked on these until they were gone, the plan was to get some another day but sadly we didnt make it back there...but we def will go in the future!



As be say goodbye to Mexico I notice he is on the prowl again...where to next dear?
I love you're reviews. Can't wait to hear more.

Well, yum!

Thanks for another great review, Nicki.

And you're way ahead of me on reviews...we were there in January 2011 and I didn't do a review at all (lost my photos due to issues with a new camera, and then my notes were thrown out by accident.) I may try to reconstruct our January experience from memory...

And we were there again last week for 2 days mid-week. I do have photos & notes for that one, just haven't got around to doing the review yet.

So not going "live" but still getting that review up within a week of your trip...well, you're way ahead of me,

Finally have about 10 days with no houseguests (at our Florida condo) so maybe I'll have time to catch up on reviews while cleaning the place & doing a mountain of laundry

Amazing reviews as usual Nicki! I've followed yours for years. I have a love/hate relationship with them....I *love* your pics and writing style but *hate* how they make me want to be eating at Disney NOW! Ugh, I really need to book another trip I think.

I must say, you have a lot of patience with that hubby of yours! J/K! My DH always springs something up on me too while we're there, something like honey, why aren't we eating there or did you remember to book us for this place?? Dude, I'm not a mind reader, speak up beforehand!

Looks like you had a good time! I deny myself the French bakery because I know I'll walk out of there 10 pounds heavier! Everything looks good in there, everything.

Oh no! I cannot imagine what I would do if I lost my pictures from a trip...that would be terrible!

So are you loving your FL house or what? Isnt being so close to WDW the best??

Thank you for the kind words and for following along! I want to be back at WDW so badly right now!

I always say, Men...cant shoot em, need em to pay for WDW vacations!

Next time we go to the French Bakery we both want to try the pizza looking thing and the cheese plate...wish I could squeeze in another day this past trip just so we could eat there again
