Can't agree more on CHH and the shrimp. YUM!!!!!! Sounds good about now. I made supper for everyone (meatloaf) and didn't eat any as I'm not a lover of it. Looking forward to the rest of your reviews for sure!!!!!!!!

I recall enjoying the fish @ CHH. Maybe it was an off day. Or maybe I put way too much vinegar to notice the extra grease, lol!!! That shrimp & soup look very good!
The H2O is a good tip. What size will they give you? The Idea of sharing a meal & getting a kid's meal as a side would be a great way to save $. We'll be on the DDP so we'll try this!

If you are in Epcot, we found getting water at the Sunshine Seasons food court was great. You could just help yourself to whatever size you wanted (water is right in the soft drink machine) and then tell the cashier you had water. Couldn't be easier!

Yes, we have had the fish before and it wasn't greasy. I think it was probably just an off day.

Yes! I love eating upstairs in the middle section where you can see out into Fantasyland and Liberty Square. I hope you had a magical first trip!

Haha! I'm not a huge fan of meatloaf either. Wouldn't it be nice to just grab that meal right out of the picture? I would love to have those shrimp for dinner tonight!

Yes, you should definitely get the shrimp. It's so delicious!

Thanks! Yes, I love POR! The theme is wonderful, the food court is great and has lots of variety, and it is only a relaxing boat ride away from DTD. I'm sure you will have a fantastic time there!

Yeah, I'm thinking it was just an off day too. They normally give you a large water, which is great on hot days. Sharing a meal and getting a kids meal is definitely a great way to save money, while still getting a lot of delicious food.

Yes, I love that about Sunshine Seasons! It is so convenient.

Day 2 - Ending


After hitting some of our favorite attractions, I received a text message with the news that our room is finally ready. Wonderful! We then proceeded to head out of the park and go check out our room, which was in the Magnolia Terrace building. This worked out really well for us because there is a bus stop right nearby and the main building is only a short walk away. After unloading the car and unpacking our suitcases, we decided it was time for dinner.

We headed over to the main building and went to the Riverside Mill Food Court. Out of all the resorts I have been too, this food court is definitely my favorite! There are so many different stations and lots of food options. I’m pretty sure I could have eaten here every night of our trip and gotten something different each time.

My whole family headed over to the carving station, where they serve up freshly sliced turkey and beef with vegetables and corn bread.

My brother and I each got one of these platters:


The Kid’s Sliced Turkey served with Mashed Potatoes, Veggies (zucchini, squash, and carrots), and Cornbread ($5.99)

I got chocolate milk with mine, while Andrew got white milk.




If only they sold Mickey Milk in stores…

My mom and dad each got one of these platters:


The Kid’s Sliced Beef served with Mashed Potatoes, Veggies (zucchini, squash, carrots, celery, onion), and Cornbread ($5.99)

My mom got white milk, while my dad got soda.


Here are the cute cups they are using this year, complete with turkey legs, pizza, popcorn, Mickey ice cream bars, ice cream cones, and apples (who wants to be healthy while on vacation?).

We all thought this was a superb meal! The meat was all cooked perfectly and incredibly tender. The mashed potatoes were very creamy and the vegetables were great and had a bit of spice in the background. My only complaint is that the cornbread was a little on the dry side. Even though we all got the portion size meant for kids, we all thought it was plenty of food. For those of you wanting a bit more food, the adult meal is $8.99 and comes with an extra slice of meat and a slightly larger serving of veggies and potatoes.

There is no doubt that this meal is worthy of…


This was a wonderful meal and definitely one of the best CS options at WDW.

This meal cost a total of $27.65.

***Tip – If you aren’t starving and want a smaller portion, feel free to order a kid’s meal. You don’t have to be 9 and under, it is just a serving size guide. It also is quite a good deal if paying OOP because it comes with two sides and a drink.

With our bellies full of deliciousness, we hoped on a boat to the Marketplace in Downtown Disney. This incredibly relaxing boat ride is yet another reason my family loves to stay at POR. My brother loves Legos, so he wanted to check out the newly refurbished store. There were quite a few really neat exhibits they added, including one of Maleficent (in dragon form) breathing fire at Prince Phillip, one of Buzz Lightyear and Woody, and one of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He decided to purchase the build-your-own minifigures (I think they were 3 for $10).

Here is what we ended up making:


Andrew made the first one, I made the second one, and we collaborated to make the third one.

And here is what happens when Andrew’s minifigure decides to be mean to mine:

Arrrrrrgh! Ha!


Once back at our room, we ate the rest of the cookie bars I had made and went to sleep.

Up Next: We have an early breakfast and head back to the Magic Kingdom.
