Dec 2011 Dining Review- "I'm Pregnant with a FOOD Baby!"- Complete 6/21


Hi All!

No, I am not really pregnant, although I probably looked like it most of this trip from all the food I consumed!

I just got back yesterday from a 7 night, 6.5 day trip to Walt Disney World! I went with my boyfriend(Corey), his mom and dad, and his sister, brother in law, and 5 year old nephew. We had a blast and I am super sad that this trip is over, because I don't think we are going back to Disney until October 2013, after the Fantasyland expansion is complete.

We stayed at Pop Century and we had the Free Dining Plan. I only got pictures of me and my boyfriend's plate most of the time. We celebrated our anniversay while we were there so we got some special anniversary things. We have been dating for 9 years- since junior year of high school! Still no engagement ..Oh well, it will happen someday! Here is our schedule of the food that we got to experience!

Pop Century Dinner



We ate this night about 8:15. Our plane landed at 6:50. I absolutely love POP Century's food court. I think it is by the far the best at WDW! I get the same meal everytime here; the Chicken Penne Alfredo. That always is good! Here it is this time.



This wasn't the best I have had. As you can see the chicken was a little burnt around the edges, and I think the sauce was a little overdone because it is a little darker than usual. It was still good, but it could have been slightly better. I always ask for a little extra sauce because I like it saucy! I don't want to know how many calories is in this...

Corey got the pizza. Not much you can say about this besides it is the typical Disney pizza. He ate it all.


He got the Oreo cupcake for dessert. Ugh, this was so sickenly sweet. He only ate a couple of bites. I tried it and it was just so sweet. The frosting was like straight sugar.


I got the Tye Dyed Cheesecake. I don't love this dessert, but I still like it! It would be better if it wasn't Tye Dyed because I feel weird eating the bright colors. This is a reused picture.


All in all Pop Century is a solid counter service choice. As long as I get the Chicken penne Alfredo I will always enjoy it there! There is lots of selections there.

Lunch at Dublin of Cookes



We started off the morning at MK, saw Justin Bieber perform, and then headed to DTD for lunch. We had a breakfast planned at Kona, but cancelled because we wanted to get to MK early to see Justin Bieber perform. Haha, that was fun! We had a snack at Main Street Bakery to start our day- their ginormous cinnamon rolls.



This looked better than it tasted. It always looks absolutely amazing, but it was pretty dry and a little overcooked. I like my cinnamon rolls undercooked. It wasn't horrible, but it could have been a bit better.

For lunch we went to Dublin of Cookes in DTD. I was surprised this was on the dining pan.

I got the Fish N Chips because I couldn't decide what I wanted.


I really didn't like this very much. It was too heavy. The fish was really greasy and the fish was sitting on top of the french fries so then all of the fries got covered in extra grease. The breading was very thick and greasy so I kind of picked around the breading.

Corey got the Battered Chicken Tenders. He really liked these chicken tenders, but then again, he lives on chicken tenders!


I was stoked for dessert because they had a pistachio cupcake! Corey got chocolate soft serve ice cream. They didn't have the option to pick up the ice cream after lunch so we received it with lunch, which was a bummer.


The cupcake was just blah. It had no pistachio flavor and the frosting and cupcake tasted like a boxed mix and frosting. The frosting was too sweet. Corey enjoyed his ice cream, it was very chocolatey.

I liked to try this place but I don't think I would come back here.

Thanks! I think I haven't aged because those were all taken in my 20s. Once I hit 30 it will hit me. Although, I look the same as I did in high school so maybe thats not true. Haha

I'm joining too!! Let me just say that my boyfriend and I were also dating for 9 years as well and we finally just got engaged a few months ago! We'd been dating for so long so it's not any surprise that we'd get engaged one day so I told him that when the day came I'd like to pick out my own ring so he said "Start looking then!" That is the extent of his proposal! We're not romantic people but at least I ended up with a ring that I love!

My daughter and I are also staying at Pop next month after our Disney Cruise and I think I will try that Chicken Alfredo! Can't wait to read more!

I usually hear nothing but good things about Cookes of Dublin but I agree that the fish piece looks really greasy. I've had similar situations here with fish and chip restaurants. The chicken tenders do look very tasty though!

Pop Century looks like it has good food court items - and it looks like they give you a lot of food on your plate too!

I always feel like cinnamon buns look better than they taste, not just that one! For me, it's the type of thing where I'm good with one or two bite, but can't really eat a whole one.

Cookes of Dublin looks okay - I like some greasy food once in awhile But disappointing to hear that the desserts weren't very good!
