I would not want to move for a night. That makes much more work for you.

What's the specialty at Cafe Orleans?


Moving for a night bites! We did it last trip and its a total pain.

Do the Blue Bayou for lunch!! And take lots of pictures!! That was one of my favorite areas in VMK. Would love to see it in real someday!
A waterside table at the Blue Bayou is pretty cool but even a row away from the water and it loses some magic. The first 11 am lunch seating is a must. I'll take a ton of pics if we do it.

With only 3 full days I am leery to make too many PS.

Their specialty is the Pommes Frites and the Mickey shaped beignets. They also make a mean onion soup. Here is their menu.

I agree about the 11 am seating is a must. I am kind of not wanting to make PS myself for my February trip too. The only meal I will do that for is for our Valentines Day meal.

Yum! I love gumbo minus the orkra. Wonder if theirs is any good? And beignets; wonder if you can just for dessert?

Ooooo, what meal? Something romantic? Napa Rose?

I would bet that they do. I know that Blue Bayou does.



Well, there is a micro-brewery restaurant across the street from our hotel that we are going to eat at I think. Scotty loves that sort of thing. I know that during the week we are there the park will have the short hours so I was thinking a late dinner there. The beauty being that we can walk back and forth to dinner. I put a link to the menu in my trip report.

I think okra is a key ingredient but when it's okra heavy, that rooty taste ruins it to me.



What brewery? I'm very familiar with that area. That sounds like a great night you've got planned!




I'm compiling a list of holiday must-do's for the trip. Chloe is helping me. I think we need 2 weeks!

I am not a big fan of the taste of okra, not to mention the sliminess of it.


We are planning to eat at JT Schmid's Restaurant and Brewery. It is like right across the street and it looks really good.



There is never enough time to do everything I want to do.

That's how I feel about celery. I love it raw but once cooked,it's gnarly.

I totally agree. Three days seems hardly worth it.


69 days !!!

Not a real fan of celery myself. Everyone wants to have it in stuffing and I am not a fan of that either.




Scotty loves micro-brews too. I don't know if you have Bevmo but that is a great location to get some great micro-brews. Laugunitas is really good!!



Under 70 days!!

We don't have Bevmo but I've heard of it. I hear their prices are unreal!


I'm so excited that our trip is so close. I'm still working on my update and adding a guest to the cast.

I don't put it in my stuffing either (but I'm from Penna Dutch country so we call it Potato Filling, because we add mashed potatoes to our "stuffing").

Adding a guest to the cast, sounds like fun!

I've never eaten at a microbrewery. Neither dh nor I drink beer in any way shape or form! But I'm not opposed to the food! Saw the menu where kaoden is going for her trip and there are so many things on there that I like!!

Her Facebook status reflects Bevmo often.

He won't post until I post him joining.

I'm waffling on the Blue Bayou. I only have about a week and I can't decide between that and the F! dessert seating, WoC picnic or Ariel's.

My friend makes her post Thanksgiving turkey pot pie with mashed potatoes and stuffing and it's amazing!

DH makes two stuffings. Only one has celery. If it's chopped small I can eat it but when it's with a pot roast or in large chunks- no thanks!

He's a great friend. We'll only have a day with him but he's a bigger Disney geek than all of us put together.

All the micro breweries we've been too have had great, eclectic food.





Update: DH agrees to the 4th night!!! However, we're only staying the 4th day if our size villa opens up at the GCV. I'm on the wait list. Moving for one night is a total PITA. Keep your fingers crossed. I'm on the wait list up until 7 days. After that, I have to call daily. I also made our villa room number request.

Me too! I hate to move for a night and DH is totally against it but it would provide another full day and night at Disneyland.
