Day 6 – Snacks


We stopped a few times throughout the day to enjoy some food from around the world. Most of these ended up being our dinner.

Norway School Bread from Kringla Bakeri og Café:





This was excellent. It was incredibly sweet though, probably due to the immense amounts of cream filling.

Even though that this isn’t my favorite treat in all of World Showcase, it is still good…



Caramel Corn and a Chocolate Caramel Cookie from Karamell-Kuche:





This place is awesome! As soon as you enter the door you can smell the caramel wafting towards you. They have so many options: caramel apples, cookies, pretzels, strawberries, fudge, and lots of other candies. Everything looked luscious. The two items were bought were as good as they look! We only ate some of the caramel corn and saved it for later: poor life decision. After a bit the caramel corn becomes soggy and kind of gross, so I would recommend eating it right after it has been made (a truly hard task, don’t you think? ) The cookie was really good; it even had caramel inside! So yummy.

These two treats receive a…


Unless you wait to eat the caramel corn until later. Then it receives a…



Chips from the Yorkshire County Fish Shop:

Gosh darn it, these are incredibly delicious! Literally the best “fries” I have ever had in my entire life. Crispy on the outside, yet light and fluffy on the inside. Even if they aren’t listed on the menu, you can still order just a side of chips.

It is no surprise that these receive a…



Well that concludes our food tour around World Showcase! We caught two of Peter Noone’s shows (he was great! I love “I’m Henry VIII, I Am”) and watched Illuminations before heading out.

Hello everyone! Just wanted to do a quick real life update:

I arrived in Florida yesterday around 6:45. We are staying at Pop Century for the first time - my Mom got a pin code so it was a really good deal It's not as nice as POR, but I like it; just glad to be on Disney property!

Also wanted to let you all know that I checked in today for the Disney College Program! It was so much fun and so exciting. I am going to post more about the process in my blog, if you are interested. I also found out my work location...

FRONTIERLAND

I'm so pumped!!!

Since work will be starting soon I'm going to try and wrap up this dining review. I will post a link to my new dining thread (once I start it of course). Thanks again to everyone for following along in my dining adventures!

How exciting! Can't wait to read all about it!

P.S. You're killing me with all the snack pictures. Everything looks delicious! I think you have swayed me into trying one of those caramel cookies next trip.

Day 7 – Our Last Full Day


Our final day at WDW had finally come… We awoke early and walked on over to the Riverside Mill Food Court. Everyone except for me had oatmeal and toast.

















Laura and my Dad both had Coffee, while Andrew had an Orange Juice:



Simply Orange, instead of the usual Minute Maid

I decided to have Mickey Waffles!
b

Everyone really loved this meal. It was good and hearty for a full day of fun at the Magic Kingdom. Mickey waffles are probably my favorite breakfast treat, so I was one happy camper. This time I had strawberries instead of applesauce. The sausage was good, but the bacon was mediocre. The waffles made up for it though.

And so the Riverside Mill receives yet another excellent rating…


Coming up: The Plaza

Day 7 – Lunch at The Plaza


After having an enjoyable morning at the Magic Kingdom, it was time for lunch! This is one of our favorite spots to eat, even though the service tends to be a little slow. We checked in and were seated almost immediately.

Laura had the Vegetarian Sandwich with Broccoli Slaw - fresh mozzarella, hummus, basil pesto, cucumber, roasted red pepper, tomato, and lettuce on a freshly baked foccaccia:

That looks really good, doesn’t it? Laura thought this sandwich was splendid, as well as the broccoli slaw. I tried some of the broccoli slaw and had to agree with her. I’ve never ordered it before, since I’m not a huge fan of broccoli, but will definitely get this in the future. It was very crunchy and the dressing was quite light. A great accompaniment to any sandwich.

My Dad and I shared the Cheese Steak Sandwich with French Fries - shaved beef, grilled with onions, mushrooms, red peppers, and white American cheese served on a hoagie roll:



We order this every time and it is always incredible! My Dad and I love cheese steak sandwiches and this has to be our favorite. The peppers, onions, and mushrooms are a great addition.

My Mom and Andrew shared the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with French Fries - grilled chicken breast topped with shaved ham and Swiss cheese served on a flour-dusted Kaiser:

They both love this sandwich! It is incredibly tender and moist with just the right amount of cheese. We even recreated this sandwich once we got home. They said it was “almost” as good as the original.

After those lovely sandwiches, it was time for some luscious ice cream!

Laura had a Creamy Vanilla Hand-Dipped Milkshake:

Gosh, this was good. There was also quite a bit leftover milkshake, so my Mom and I had a sip as well. My Mom loves Vanilla ice cream and I think she liked this just as much, if not more, than her sundae.

My Dad had The Plaza Restaurant Sundae - ice cream (chocolate) with hot fudge, strawberry sauce, crushed pineapple, topped with whipped cream, chopped nuts and a cherry:


My Mom had The Plaza Restaurant Sundae - ice cream (vanilla) with hot fudge, strawberry sauce, crushed pineapple, topped with whipped cream, chopped nuts and a cherry:


Can’t go wrong with either of those choices. They both enjoyed these sundaes immensely.

Andrew had the Original Banana Split - chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream topped with hot fudge, strawberry sauce, crushed pineapple, chopped nuts, whipped cream and a cherry:

He did ask for no pineapple and no nuts, but it ended up coming with both. No matter; Father helped eat that section.

I had the Brownie Sundae - vanilla ice cream and a fudge brownie topped with hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry:



I had cookies and cream ice cream instead of vanilla. What a combination! This is so sinful and insanely good. I wish I could eat this right now…

This was one fabulous meal! The Plaza is definitely worthy of…


Up next: Someday I wish I could be a real boy

Day 7 – Late Dinner at Pinocchio’s


Once we had waddled out of The Plaza, we headed over to Frontierland to get a spot for the afternoon parade. We then decided to split ways – Andrew and our parents went back to the resort to pack up, while Laura and I went to DTD to buy a birthday gift for our friend. Everyone met back at the Magic Kingdom, where we had dinner at Pinocchio’s Villiage Haus.

My parents and Andrew shared two Cheese Pizzas:

They thought these were better than the ones we had a Pizza Planet, even though I’m pretty sure they are basically the same thing.

Here are some cups of water:


I had Chicken Parmesan with Pasta:

The chicken was excellent! It was perfectly crispy and had just the right amount of cheese. The pasta, however, was a different story. It was wayyyyy overcooked and watery. I only ate a few bites before throwing the rest away. They used to serve orzo with this dish, which was a much better choice!

Laura had Tomato Soup and the Kid’s Grilled Cheese with grapes and a cookie:

She thought this was great and declared it better than the tomato soup they have at college. I’m surprised Andrew didn’t have the grilled cheese; I’m sure he would have loved it as well.

Overall, this meal receives a…


Up next: Popcorn!

Day 7 – Later That Evening…


After riding our favorite attractions (Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin’s Magic Carpets, TTA), we headed towards Main Street to catch the Main Street Electrical Parade. I was going to have an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich from the Bakery or a Mickey Premium Bar, but sadly got neither… I was still full from dinner and the line at the Bakery was incredibly long. So I settled for some Popcorn instead. Unfortunately, I failed to take a picture, but I do have one from last time! The bucket is still the same:





We also took a walk around the Main Street Confectionary:










Later the next day my Mom revealed that she had purchase a HUGE Mickey Rice Krispie Treat for us:


Cute, huh? This lasted us for a several days. Boy, that sure is one tasty breakfast!

Next up: Final Review

Day 8 – Last Day



All of us woke up extra early, so we could get on the road. Luckily, we did have time for one final breakfast at POR.

I had a Cinnamon Roll this time:

It was still hard and slightly stuck to the plate, but it was still good. There was plenty of cinnamon and was very soft inside.

As always, everyone else had oatmeal and toast.

Oatmeal with Berries:








White Toast:


Multigrain Toast:


Evil Coffee;

Why is this evil? I was filling up two cups of coffee and didn’t put lids on them. As I was carrying them back to the table, I accidently spilled some all over my hand. Unfortunately I was in the middle of the dining room, so I couldn’t set them down anywhere. Thankfully, the burn wasn’t too bad.

Once again, we all really enjoyed our breakfast. This is such a wonderful place to grab food before heading into the parks.

I was bummed that we never had an ice cream sundae from here (or Mickey Premium Bar or an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich from the Main Street Bakery, for that matter), but it is just something to add to my list of deliciousness to have during my college program.

And so, our final breakfast receives a…


Final thoughts to come!

So many great updates to read and photos to look at!

I'm surprised at how good the veggie sandwich at The Plaza looks, and the tomato soup with grilled cheese at the Pinocchio Village Haus was a great idea. And after all that indulgent goodness, the oatmeal with berries looks like a perfect breakfast.

Can't wait to read your updates on the College Program - it sounds like a great experience!

Wow! So many great snacks and breakfasts.... I'm like you - Mickey waffles for me! Oh, and the brownie sundae at Plaza Restaurant looks really, realy good.

How exciting that you are starting the DCP now! Adventureland - how awesome!! How long is the program? I think you may have said early in your review but I was too lazy to go back. We'll be there in August so you may still be there.

Thanks for taking your time to share all of your dining experiences!
