LTT lunch looks so delicious! We will be there in August. Thanks for the tip about asking for the rolls with honey butter. We would never have known!

Another vote for LTT! I love the colony salad!!!!!! It is so refreshing to enjoy before a calorie filled dessert. Both are favs of mine. Thanks for the tip on the rolls. That will definitely be used on our next trip to LTT. We don't have an adr for LTT on our next trip in a few weeks. Our DS wanted to eat at The Plaza. I think he'd enjoy the hamburger just as much. I believe its time to do some adr investigating!

And thanks for posting some room pics! Princess and the Frog is my new favorite Disney film, so I really think as much as I discovered I loved POFQ this past trip I may have to give POR a try as well. That room is too cute!

Great update!
Oh man, haha! So funny! I would love to eat my own one day; I'm just usually way too full. I'm honored to be your new favorite person

I also love Princess and the Frog! POR is an amazing resort with fantastic theming. It's also nice that you can walk over to POFQ, so you can still take in that Mardi Gras theme.

Yup, it's one fantastic burger! If you're in the MK and looking for a good place for lunch, I would definitely recommend LTT or The Plaza (look for that review later on).

Glad to provide you with an extra tip I really enjoy The Plaza as well (that review will be up a little later). Both have really excellent entrees and great desserts!

Your home-made ooey gooey toffee cake looks AMAZING!!!! I want to be your friend! Thanks for the hint about the rolls with honey butter at LTT - didn't know. That burger looks good but so does the colony salad... hmmmmm I'm going to have a hard time deciding what to order. Although, I still get sucked into the toffee cake!

Day 2 – Beaches and Cream


After arriving in Epcot and reuniting with the rest of my family, we went on a tour of all the lovely flowers and gardens as part of Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. We then began to walk around the world, towards the United Kingdom, so we could watch The British Revolution. This group was fantastic! And we stayed for the entire show, even though it began to rain. Soon “Hey Jude” ended and we took off at a fast walk to the Beach Club. As the rain began to increase, so did our pace. We finally reached our destination: Beaches and Cream. Since the weather was a little nasty, not too many people were out and about, so we were seated immediately. We knew there was only one thing on the menu that we wanted: The Kitchen Sink.

My family has tried to conquer this twice - failing on both accounts. But, we had an extra sailor this time, so our hope was restored! When they bring out the Kitchen Sink they flash the lights and sound the sirens to get everyone’s attention as the server presents this masterpiece. There were many oohs and ahhs as it was set down before us and one lady at a nearby table kept taking our picture (probably because we are incredibly famous and good-looking – what’s that, you say? Maybe she was taking pictures of the ice cream? Hmmm… Highly unlikely, who would really want a picture of someone else’s ice cream? ).

So, without further ado, I present the Kitchen Sink - Eight Scoops of Ice Cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip, and coffee) served with all the Toppings in the house (hot fudge, peanut butter, nuts, oreos, brownie, pound cake, gummy candies, and candy bars) and a whole can of Whipped Cream (that’s right folks, a WHOLE CAN of whipped cream). You can substitute the flavors if you would like, but we stuck with the original flavors so everyone could have their favorite:





Midway


Finished


My life goal has been accomplished! The Kitchen Sink has been vanquished at last.

Our waitress came by after we had finished it and replied “Wow, that was fast!” A guest at another table remarked “I have never seen anyone finish that before. Good job.”

I guess those are compliments? Well after around four or five bowls of ice cream apiece, we waddled out of there. Too bad, it was a complete downpour! We donned our ponchos and headed back towards Epcot. Then it was time for the lovely poncho tango – trying to remove my drawstring bag so I could get through security, then trying to put it back on under my poncho, then trying to find my ticket… While I was doing the poncho tango, everyone else had already gone through the turnstiles and were listening to an incredibly funny cast member. She was telling puns and jokes nonstop, one right after the other! My brother has Goofy on his ticket, so she kept telling him to stop goofing around. Then she began the jokes “Why did Mickey travel to outer space? To find Pluto!” I think all that ice cream, combined with my love of puns, sent me over the edge. I was doubled over with laughter and couldn’t stop laughing all the way out of the park. (I just started laughing again, now that I think about it…)

And so our second day comes to a close. Oh my goodness, I almost forgot the rating! We give this a…


Now, I absolutely love Beaches and Cream. It has great burgers and sandwiches, and delicious sundaes. We all really like the Kitchen Sink, but we’re all not a fan of everything in it. Mint chocolate chip ice cream is one of my favorites, while everyone else (except my Dad) dislikes it with a passion. On the other hand, I’m not a huge fan of coffee or strawberry. The first half of the Kitchen Sink is great; however, as everything begins to melt and run together, you start to get some funky flavors. The slush we had at the end tasted completely like mint (which I loved, but Andrew and Laura hated). So, would I recommend the Kitchen Sink? Absolutely! It is a fun challenge to overcome, and it tastes pretty darn good. Even if you don’t order the Kitchen Sink, I would definitely check out Beaches and Cream – it’s a quaint ice cream shop with some awesome food!

Up Next: Hollywood, here we come!

I've really been wanting to try the Kitchen Sink, but I think that's more than DH and I can handle! I will definitely be trying it the next time we take a trip with more people. Very cool that you finally got to finish it!

I am going to have to try this, wow! It looks right up my ally! Both times I have been to EOS I have gotten the holiday sandwich, but we are going when that won't be an option this time. Now I already know what I'll be ordering, thanks!

Yes, indeed! It would definitely be hard to finish with 2 people. I'd say bring 4 or 5 and you're good to go

Awesome! Glad I could help narrow down the choice. My Dad loved this, so I'm sure you will too.

Day 3 – Riverside Mill Breakfast


We woke up fairly early this morning so we could make it to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for rope drop. We decided to start the day with a hearty breakfast from the Riverside Mill Food Court.

Andrew and Laura decided to amuse themselves by building this tower:


Which turned into this by the time I got done taking photos:

Silly kids!

I had a Cinnamon Roll from the bakery section:



After ordering, I realized that this was smaller than cinnamon buns I have had in the past. Not complaining though; gives me a chance to save some calories, eh? The outside was hard and the entire bun was stuck to the plate. I’m guessing a quick zap in the microwave was the culprit. The inside was delicious though – lots of cinnamon and very soft.

My Mom had Corn Flakes with fruit on the side (which I gladly helped her eat):




Andrew and my Dad both had Oatmeal again:


Laura just had some Toast with honey, as she had been feeling a little ill due to the amount of ice cream we consumed the night before … oops.
Andrew and my parents shared some toast as well.


Even though my cinnamon bun was a little lacking, everyone else enjoyed their cereal and toast. I would give this meal a rating of…

Yup. That’s 1.5 Barbossas.

Day 3 – Pizza Planet


After breakfast, we took a bus to DHS. Luckily enough we were able to hop on Toy Story Mania with no wait. Andrew and Laura and I can get pretty competitive, so we loved this attraction. Afterward, my Mom and I dropped 13 stories in a sketchy elevator; then all of us took a ride through the movies, listened to a potential American Idol, watched Gaston fail at life, and attempted to draw Pluto.

Quick note about the Animation Academy. If you haven’t been, then you should go! If you have, then you already know how fun it is. Basically you get to sit down with an animator, who takes you through all the steps to draw a character. And the best part – you get to keep your picture. Laura’s was definitely the best – it looked amazing! Also, funny story: The animator went through a list of characters and asked if anyone had drawn them before, so no one would get a repeat. After going through several characters, she reached Pluto, which became candidate number one. She went through a few others before reaching, wait for it, wait for it… FLYNN RIDER. (Laura and I are ridiculously in love with him ). As she mentioned his name, Laura and I kind of freaked out and since we were sitting in the front row, she heard us and jokingly said “calm down ladies.” Since no one had drawn him yet, he became candidate number two. Alas, we took it to a vote and Flynn went down in a blaze of glory… silly small children. Why you no vote for Flynn?

This was quite taxing on one’s hunger levels, so we needed some refueling. What better place, than Pizza Planet?

Since the pizzas here are plenty big, we decided to share 3 meals - each meal comes with a Pizza and a Caesar Salad.

Here is the “healthy” portion of the meal. Too bad it was covered with delicious Caesar dressing…




An overview of our pizzas:


Time to look pretty for your close up!

Vegetable Pizza:


Cheese Pizzas:




This isn’t the best pizza in the world, but it is still fairly good. Let’s face it: you are probably never going to get that “Wow, this pizza is amazing!” factor from any of the quick service pizza places on property. Laura and I shared the veggie pizza, while everyone else shared the two cheese pizzas. I have never had the veggie pizza before and I was pleasantly surprised. This was delicious and much better than cheese or pepperoni! Definitely going to order this one from now on.

We rate this meal a…

I'm enjoying your review very much! Congratulations on graduating!

I also just graduated from college a few weeks ago and my gift to myself is my fall trip to Disney with my college friend as well! It is so much fun to go to Disney with people that have never been or don't remember going. Just watching their reactions to everything is priceless!
