joining in a little late - oops. Enjoying your reviews and love love love your rating system. Looking forward to more. We almost never eat the "free" breakfast at hotels - excpet maybe cereal and toast - those eggs always gross me out! pbj is my stand by when I don't have anything in the pantry : ).

We havn't been to chh in awhile - think it will be on the list for out trip this year.

I have to agree with you about the shawarma platter. I had it for the first time on our last trip and it was awesome!

Tangeriene Cafe is one of those places that I always mean to try and somehow never do. It looks good, though, so maybe next time.

I have heard good things about the Tangeriene Cafe. I'm not a huge fan of hummus either but my fiance really likes it.

I also wanted to let you know that we decided to add a breakfast reservation to our honeymoon trip next week - and thanks in large part to your review, we decided on 1900 Park Fare! I'm definitely excited for it!

We were also okay with the hurricane... not nearly as bad here as expected, though not too far away got hit pretty badly. We were lucky that we didn't even lose power, though apparently almost half of the people in our county did.

I'm really enjoying your reviews! Great rating system! And I'm a little jealous of you getting picked by Captain Jack

You know what they always say, "better late than never!" Thanks for joining in CHH is definitely a good pick for CS in the MK.

Yes, that was definitely great and a really good deal!

Haha! I was the same way. I had been meaning to go there for about the last three trips. I'm glad I finally got the chance to try it!

I'm so glad that I helped you with your decision about breakfast! It is definitely one of my new favorites and the rest of my family agrees 100%. I hope you have a marvelous time there!

Thank goodness the hurricane wasn't too bad near you. And that's great that you didn't lose power.

Thank you! I'm glad you like the reviews.

Hee hee! The good thing about Captain Jack is that he picks adults along with the kids. Such a wonderful memory....

Day 5


We got up early and headed to our usual breakfast spot at the Riverside Mill Food Court.

My dad and Andrew got the oatmeal with strawberries and raspberries, while my mom got the oatmeal with the fruit on the side. They also had multigrain toast and an order of white toast.

I forgot to mention this before, but if you want peanut butter you have to ask for it at the bakery station. The jam is over at the condiment station. We had a heck of a time finding it on the first morning!

I had the Kid’s Waffle Plate – with bacon, sausage, and applesauce ($4.39):


What can I say; I’m a sucker for Mickey waffles! The kid’s waffle plate comes with the small Mickey waffles, while the adult’s plate comes with one large Mickey waffle. I prefer the smaller ones, so I always go with the kid’s meal. The bacon was bleh, but the sausage was good. I’m not a huge fan of applesauce, unless it’s homemade, so I swapped my mom for her fresh fruit. Everyone else enjoyed their oatmeal just as much as the previous day and the fruit was once again quite delicious!

Here is a photo of our entire table:


Our breakfast receives a…

Haha! Just kidding. Wanted to make sure you guys were still paying attention.

It really gets a…



Our total this morning was $16.65. A pretty good deal if you ask me!

Coming up: Snacks fit for an explorer!

Thanks Vicki! I'm sure your DS will love to see Captain Jack! The tutorials are over in Adventureland right across from the attraction. They are at 10:15, 11:20, 12:25, 2:15, 3:20, and 4:25.

I am all settled and back in the swing of things. The only bad thing is that I hardly have any time to write and post reviews!

Thanks mate! I am not incredibly adventurous, but I'm so glad I tried that platter at the TC. They also have one with lamb and a combo one with lamb and chicken. I loved eating it outside, as it felt like I was in Agrabah!

I don't know how i missed that you were doing a dining review, but I am here now and all caught up. I am glad that enjoyed the POR food court, it's one of my favs as well. I can never understand when people give it poor reviews, the food selection is great!

I am also convinced that I need a 1900 park faire ADR on our next trip. You had me at lobster eggs Benedict.

Thanks for coming aboard! Yup, 1900 Park Fare is a great place for breakfast, as the food is delicious and the characters are awesome. I'm sure Everett would love to see Pooh and Tigger again (although you might not want to... )

Day 5 – Snacks!


Once we were fueled up for the day’s adventures, we hopped on a bus and got to Animal Kingdom for the opening ceremony. Andrew and I headed to Expedition Everest, while our parents sat outside and waited for us. This was our first time riding this attraction and we loved it! Then we all headed to Kilimanjaro Safaris, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, and the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. Since we had successfully saved Little Red from poachers, gave some goats some affection (at the Affection Section, haha!), and tamed wild gorillas, we decided we needed to refuel. We were all craving something sweet, so we went over to Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery.

We ordered these two little beauties:

Brownie Paw ($3.99)


Zebra Cupcake ($3.99)


Wow! Were these ever good! The brownie paw was very rich and chocolaty, while the zebra cupcake was light, with a ton of frosting and shaved chocolate. These were to die for! The perfect place for a midmorning snack! (Do you think I used enough exclaimation points? )

These definitely receive a…

With tax, these two snacks came to $8.50.

After devouring these, our next stop was back in Asia. On the way to the Maharajah Jungle Trek, I got one of these from the Yak and Yeti CS.

Pork Egg Roll ($2.49)


This was definitely the best egg roll I have had on Disney property. It beats both of the ones I have tried in Adventureland at the MK and the one in China at Epcot. It wasn’t the best egg roll I have ever had, but it was still good.

This receives a…


The total was $2.66.

On the way out, we stopped at an Ice Cream Cart and got a Frozen Banana.


This came to $3.50.

This was good and quite refreshing as it was a HOT day.

So, this gets a…


Coming up: Lunch at Pizzafari.
