3/4 CapeMay Clambake - dinner


Dinner at Cape May Clambake is a must do for every trip! I love this restaurant. There are so many delicious options making you wish for more tummy room.

First can I just say the cornbread here is to die for! I could just eat that and leave happy. So soft and sweet. The crab legs of course are also very good. Very fresh, though I am completely inept at cracking and peeling them. There was almost a flying crab leg at the clam bake the night of 3/4 …..but I digress.

The fried fish was yummy, as was the lobster tortellini, and the seafood pot-pie is really tasty too. I always make sure to grab some chicken nuggets too…they are the best here. I love them! Here’s a pic of my plate:






I learned something new with desert. I love flan. I just had room to take a bite of each dessert, but wished I had more room for that. It was vanilla custardy goodness. The Oreo bon-bon was good, but I do miss the lava cake.





As a side note, there was a rather large group of teenage girls eating near us, at least 30. I believe they were some sort of cheering group. The table next to ours had a little girl celebrating a birthday and the waitress (who was also our waitress) came out and announced the birthday to the restaurant and had everyone sing. It was cute, but then the large group of girls did some sort of loud birthday chant with clapping after the singing was over. It was so loud and lasted forever.

All I could think was... ‘the waitress saw my birthday button when we checked in...Oh, no!’ Thank goodness, a few minutes later, the waitress stopped by our table and asked if she could have the restaurant sing for me. I thanked her, but told her I would have to hide under the table if that happened. (I’m telling you that cheering chant was embarassing!) She was very sweet and brought this dessert out for me surreptitiously.





It was a very delicious chocolate mousse covered in dark chocolate. It was a sweet gesture. Too bad I was too full to eat it (I found room for a bite)
The check came with a handful of saltwater taffy. A nice touch I think!

3/5 Yak & Yeti - lunch

Thanks for reading along with me

Animal Kingdom was the park of choice today. We had a lunch ressie at Yak & Yeti.
I really liked the theming of this restaurant. We ended up getting seated on the second floor, which I think was neat -it felt like we were eating at an Inn in Asia.

For my entrťe I chose the Kobe Beef burger and shoestring fries. I have to be honest, I thought I would like this but it just wasnít that great. One of the flavors in the burger was really bitter. I donít know if it was the beef I didnít like, or if it was just the seasoning. The fries were good though, and plentiful.





Sis chose the shrimp lo-mien. It was a delicious, heaping plate. I tried a bit and thought it was very good. Not greasy at all with big juicy shrimp.





Dessert for me was the fried wontons with cream cheese. This was delicious! Every glowing review that you have read about these tasty morsels is true! Warm gooey cream cheese filled the wontons with pineapples, strawberries, vanilla icecream, and some sort of cream cheese drizzle. It was sooo good.





Cheesecake was my sisterís choice. She really enjoyed this dessert. I tried a bite too, and agree it was great. I love cheese cake. This was not too sweet and pretty dense; my favorite kind. As good as the wontons were it would be hard for me to pick which dessert was best.





I liked this restaurant a lot and think we will return for sure.

3/5 Riverside Mill - snack

After animal Kingdom we stopped by the Riverside Mill for a snack.

I grabbed one the vanilla cupcakes. I absolutely adore these cupcakes. I love the sweet icing, and the vanilla cake is so soft and moist - almost fluffy. I joked around with my sister Ė telling her to get me a plate of these for my birthday cake. I wish I had one right now!




Mickey cookie again for the sister. Like I said before she loves these!

3/5 Wolfgang Puck's Cafe - dinner


Our plan for this evening was to go to DTD. We didnít have any ressies for the night (thought we might go to beaches and cream), but decided to try somewhere new. Wolfgang Puck Cafť was at the top of my list, so we headed to concierge to see if they could score us a table. Concierge was very nice, but stated Wolfgang does not take same-day ressies. I hadnít heard that before, so we left a little confused and tried to use our phone to load the online reservation system. It took forever, and kept freezing, but finally we were able to pull up and reserve 830 for that night. I wanted to go back to concierge and thank them for their help. LOL!

We took the boat to DTD, did some shopping then headed to WPC. There were so many things on the menu that looked good. I chose the fish of the day with garlic mashed potatoes. The fish was Sole Ė lightly breaded with lemon butter and almond slices. It was delicious! The garlic mashed potatoes were amazing too. Slightly lumpy and creamy. They reminded me of my gramís mashed potatoes (miss you ) I could have licked my plate clean! The broccoli was good too.





My sister chose the bbq chicken pizza. She thought this was really good as well. It was a flat crust with the perfect amount of cheese.





For dessert I chose the snickers cheese cake. This was as good as it looks - Yummy cheese cake with chocolate and caramel drizzle with chunks of snickers on top. I ate the whole thing





Chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream was my sisterís choice. She really enjoyed this dessert. Warm gooey chocolate flowed out from the middle of the moist cake.





Wolfgang Puckís is a great restaurant Ė and popular. It was a large restaurant, but was filled and busy!

3/6 Starring Rolls - lunch

Hollywood studios today. It was the last day of ESPN weekend and it was crowded, but I knew exactly where to go for lunch: Starring Rolls.

Both of us chose the turkey focaccia sandwich. I enjoyed this sandwich so much! It was filled with heaps of fresh turkey, lettuce, and seasoned mayo. The meal also came with a bag of chips which we saved for later.







I chose the red velvet cupcake for dessert. This was very good. The red velvet cake was covered in cream cheese icing with a dollop of cheese cake in the center and a sprinkling of toffee bits. All the cupcakes here look amazing. Iíve had the chocolate peanut butter cupcake before; it's really great too.





My sister choice the banana split. This was her favorite treat of the trip. She said it was a delicious banana pudding with banana, vanilla cake pieces, and a chocolate graham layering. She loved it!




Starring Rolls is my favorite CS in Hollywood Studios

3/6 In-room Pizza Delivery


We had a reservation for La Hacienda tonight, but were feeling too tired to head back out, so we canceled and decided on an in room pizza delivery.
I know some people complain about the Disney pizza, but I think itís pretty good. We chose extra cheese with pepperoni. The delivery came with two desserts and a liter of soda. Carrot cake and chocolate cake were our dessert choices.





Hereís an extra pic: We bought make your own Mickey rice crispy treats at Goofyís. One dipped in milk chocolate, Oreo crumbs, and dark/white chocolate chips -with milk chocolate drizzle; one dipped in dark chocolate and Oreo crumbs - with dark chocolate drizzle; and one dipped in milk chocolate, Oreo crumbs, and peanuts - with white chocolate drizzle.
