The tuna sandwich looks like 2 sandwiches cut in half. Was it quarters or two sandwiches?

I'm loving your review! POR is our home base too, and Riverside Mill's cinnamon rolls and cornbread often haunt my dreams.

A tidbit from me, a fellow Jack fan, to you... go to MNSSHP dressed as a pirate, complete with black leather boots. My kids and I, along with my brother, SIL, and Mom, all went, as a family of pirates (well... my 6' tall brother was a parrot... which was awesome.) Anyway, you want some good Jack interaction?

Pirate costume.

I highly recommend it.

It was one sandwich cut into quarters. It was still quite a large portion size and I think my brother had to help her finish it all.

Thanks! Cinnamon rolls...

Thanks for the info!!! I have always wanted to go to MNSSHP, but darn school is always in session. A pirate outfit would definitely be my first choice as a costume. Heck, I would totally dress up as a pirate everyday if I could... And of course I would love to see Captain Jack

I wish they would bring the Pirate and Princess Parties back. They were so epic!

Day 5 – A Sweet Ending


After having dinner, we went on a few attractions until 9:00. Since we hadn’t had enough sweet things today , we headed up to Main Street. Since the Main Street Electric Parade had just started, all the stores (including the food venues) were basically empty.

My dad, mom, and brother headed to the Plaza Ice Cream Parlour on the corner, while I went to the Main Street Bakery. After getting our desserts we all met at a table down that little side street (about half way down Main Street). We had perfect timing as the parade had just started to make its way to that point. We just love eating our desserts there, while listening to the music as the parade passes by.

I’m sure by now that you are just dying to know what we ordered, so without further ado, here are our desserts:

Double Scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream ($3.89):

My mom loves vanilla ice cream. And what better place to eat it?

Double Scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream with Mickey Ears ($3.89):

My dad also likes vanilla ice cream. He also added on the Mickey Ears. They are just really hard discs of chocolate. These normally cost a little extra, but the CM didn’t add them in this time.

Our parents decided not to get the sundaes because they “were eating too many sweets” and “needed to start consuming fewer calories.” I have one thing to say to that:

Luckily, my brother still had his wits about him and ordered this:

The "Plaza" Ice Cream Sundae - Old-fashioned vanilla with Hot Fudge, whipped cream and a cherry served in a freshly made waffle bowl ($4.59). Andrew substituted Cookies ‘n’ Cream for the Vanilla. He thought this was good. The waffle bowls are made right there, so they are really fresh. They also add in a touch of cinnamon, making them extra delicious.

These three desserts came to $13.18.

And now, my friends, it is time for one of my favorite foods in all of Walt Disney World.

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich:

Let me just tell you a little bit about this incredible sandwich. Four scoops of vanilla ice pressed between two freshly made chocolate chip cookies that are the size of a small plate. Need I say more?

Oh, and yes, I did eat the entire thing. No worries though. I consumed about 2,000 calories all for the sake of this dining review.

With tax, this cost $4.47.

Hands down, no questions asked, this deserves a…


We hung around the Magic Kingdom for a while, and then headed back to POR.

Up next: We rest up and enjoy a late breakfast.

I tried a brownie paw for the first time on our last trip and your picture reminds me of just how good it was.

I love your description of Pizzafari being very Animal Kingdom-y. That's one thing I like about that place. The pizza always seems okay to me.

Your ice cream looks great, too. Is it ever possible for a meal to earn two Jack Sparrows?

Haha, thanks! Hmm.. two Jack Sparrows? What an awesome idea! I actually never considered it before. I just might have to try that out...

Day 6


Now when I say “late breakfast,” I actually mean eating around 9:00. To the rest of the world (who sleeps in most days and forgoes park openings), 9:00 actually means early breakfast. So, when we reached the Riverside Mill Food Court, we found ridiculous lines at most every station and about a ten minute wait to pay for our food. So, we all decided to head over the bakery station for our main selection, which hardly had any line at all.

My mom and dad each got cold cereal and split a Cherry Danish:






Andrew and I each got a Cinnamon Roll:





And I also got a side of sausage:


Cold cereal is just that… cold cereal. On the other hand, the cherry danish and cinnamon rolls were delicious! I was actually surprised that they were still very fresh this “late” in the morning. The sausage was also really good. Much better than the bacon!

Overall, this breakfast receives a…


Shocker, I know. This is the first time the Riverside Mill Food Court has gotten anything less than Captain Jack. (Darn cereal….)

The total today was $18.98.

Up next: Lunch at a tavern!

Yup, they are the best! You should try eating a whole one next time. It is quite an accomplishment

Sorry for the lack of updates everyone! I've been really busy with classes, homework, projects, exams, and work. I'll try to post more this weekend! Thanks for reading along!

Also, just because you all would appreciate this:

We have a movie theater on campus and Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is playing this week! I'm going with a group of friends to see it tomorrow and we are all dressing up as pirates. Sooooo excited!

Good for you! Enjoy the little bit of down time that you have! Please post a photo of the movie group in costume, as well! It will help all us older folks remember our campus experiences from decades past...

Thanks Krissalee!! We all had an awesome time! There were 8 of us that ended up going. 6 of us dressed up, but 2 of the others decided to go as landlubbers

I must say, it was quite a sight to see 6 pirates walking around campus. I know everyone in line was totally impressed with us. The people that we bought our tickets from started laughing hysterically when we asked them what movie was playing.

I'll definitely post some pictures once I get them upload to my computer and onto photobucket.

Day 6 – Liberty Tree Tavern


After breakfast we headed back to the Magic Kingdom (can you tell it’s our favorite park?). We split up - Andrew and my dad went to Space Ranger Spin, while my mom and I listened to the Citizens of Main Street. They were awesome as always! We then went to the MISICI Street Party and Pirates of the Caribbean. After that we met my dad and brother back on Main Street. While we were there, we happened to run into Lee DeWyze (winner of American Idol, Season 9) and his girlfriend, Jonna Walsh.



We found out later that he was doing a photo shoot in the Rose Garden, as he had proposed to Jonna while in WDW.

After the celebrity spotting, we went on a few more attractions and watched the parade at noon. Once that was done we went to check in at Liberty Tree Tavern.

Liberty Tree Tavern is our absolute favorite place to eat in the Magic Kingdom! Would this meal live up to our expectations?

We were seated promptly and our server, Russell, came over to greet us and take our order. I just have to say that he was an outstanding waiter and took excellent care of us!

Freshly Baked Rolls with Honey Butter


If you go to LTT for lunch, make sure you ask for the rolls with honey butter. They are so light and fluffy and incredibly delicious, especially with a generous amount of honey butter slathered all over. We made quick work of these, but declined Russell’s offer for more as we didn’t want to get too full just yet.

My dad, mom, and Andrew each got the turkey dinner:

Pilgrims' Feast - traditional roast turkey with herb bread dressing, mashed potatoes and a garden vegetable ($14.99)

They loved this! The turkey was very moist and tender, the dressing and mashed potatoes were as delicious as always, and the green beans were excellent and very flavorful.

As you might remember from before, Andrew loves his mac and cheese. He was in heaven, when he asked for a side of it and received this huge platter:

Andrew ate this entire thing, save for a few spoonfuls that the rest of us consumed.

I departed from tradition and ordered this:

Angus Chuck Cheeseburger - topped with bacon and cheddar or mushrooms and provolone served with fresh fruit or tavern fries ($12.99)

I chose to go with the bacon and cheddar and substituted a salad with strawberry vinaigrette for the fries/fruit. This is the BEST burger I have ever had in my entire life. It was cooked to perfection (medium well) and was absolutely scrumptious! And I love the strawberry vinaigrette salad dressing, so I was delighted with this substitution.

We all loved our meals so much and we completely cleaned our plates!

Overview:


Even though we were pretty full, we couldn’t pass up this dessert:




Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce ($6.49)

I don’t even know how to describe the wonderfulness of this dessert. It is a luscious combination of this moist, ooey cake filled with toffee, topped with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream and smothered with hot fudge, caramel sauce, and more toffee. It is INCREDIBLE!

Please promise me that you will order this if you ever go to LTT. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

I bet you can’t guess what rating this meal receives….

Then again, maybe you could.

The total for this meal with tax and tip was $90.

***Tip – If you want to dine at a table service restaurant, but want to save a bit of money, try eating there for lunch. You can normally save a significant amount, by just eating earlier. You can even have a late lunch (around 3:00) and just have a snack later on.

Up next: We tackle the biggest dessert in the world!
