The shrimp ceviche was definitely not on the new menu, however we didn't specifically ask if it might still be available. In the case of the tostadas though, I specifically asked about them when I didn't see them on the menu.

I am bummed about the tostadas. Wanted to try them.

The larger glass we had in Nov. 2010 was definitely not a to-go cup, but maybe they were just out of their regular margarita glasses at that time. The larger glasses could have maybe been water/soda glasses from the restaurant.

Happy 50th! What a great way to celebrate! (Speaking from a fellow WDW bday celebrant!)

The "new" margarita sure looks great. I'm looking forward to reading more of your experiences. Happy grad planning in the meantime.

Oh no! Why would they get rid of the tostadas?? I do that guacamole though.

Looking forward to hearing more about your trip. Happy belated birthday!

I am so sad to hear that all they have for food at the cava is chips and guacamole, we loved going there for drinks and tostadas

I have a couple questions about La Cava! Do they have a sampler to try all the flavors? Also can you get them to go? Not sure if my 3 kids would want to hang out there even though we would! Happy birthday also!!!

I know they used to have a margarita sampler (I've seen pics here on the DIS) when they first opened, but I don't think they have it anymore. I know that it was definitely not on their new menu. And although I have never taken the margaritas to go, I have read here that it can be done.

Oh, and thanks for the birthday wishes!

I was able to get the margarita sampler in December '09. I was told at the time that they had just stopped doing it but would do it for me since I asked. It was four small samples for like $17. I don't know why they would discontinue it. It was definitely cool trying the different flavors. There are pics in my "Part 2" dining report (link below)

Thank you to all of you who have joined me so far! And thanks so much for your patience. The graduation activities for DD2 are now over and DD1 (who joined me on this trip) left this morning for her summer internship at the University of Texas in Austin...but not before we went over our notes for the dining reviews, of course. My pics are all downloaded so I just need to resize them and I'll be ready to get this party started!

Coming soon: Arrival night dinner at Flying Fish Cafe

Had to pop in and mention that we stopped by La Cava a few times last week and where there used to be lines of people waiting to get in we found the place virtually empty. Looks like they shot themselves in the foot!

Congrats to both of your daughters!!!!!

It was on the menu when we were there May 13th-17th- it is called Shrimp cocktail. It's the same thing, only with larger shrimp and in a big glass instead of the shot glasses. It actually was better than before-

Oops, I guess I must of missed the shrimp cocktail on the menu. Probably due to my extreme disappointment over the missing tostadas. It does look pretty good though. Thanks for posting a pic!
