I have not seen a cherry crisp in any other dining review so that was a delightful first! I love canned cherries, yellow cake mix and a TON of butter all baked together. So yum!

Now for the mom type question: Do you stay in a dorm? Just trying to picture Disney housing and I'm envisioning Stacy TV and towel animals on your bed.
Andrew says thanks! And yes, Angelica was dying to make an appearance

Your cherry, cake, and butter concoction sounds amazing! I may have to give that a try.

We stay in apartments near DTD. There are 3 different apartment complexes for CPs and 1 for international students. I really like where I live and will be posting pictures on my blog. Sadly, there are no towel animals... perhaps I can learn to make them while I'm here

Hollywood Hills Theater – June 14th


My first Disney food of the College Program! One would think this would be exciting, until you find out that I ordered this:




Nachos

Yup. Nachos. My roommate and I went to DHS for the evening and it began to rain once we got there. We headed over to Animation Academy and did meet and greets for about an hour. The lines were a bit long, but we met some awesome characters. Once the rain let up we rode some attractions and then it was time for Fantasmic! I didn’t have enough time to grab an actual meal before the show, so I went with these inside the theater.

How shall I describe them? Very salty with nasty, bright yellow cheese sauce that tasted incredibly fake and kind of like plastic. Thumbs down on this one guys…


Too bad… I love nachos and thought these would be good until I actually tried them. Take my advice and only stick to popcorn.

Well mates, since I have been so busy with training and whatnot that that was actually the last time I was in a park. So far I have only been to MK and DHS for a few hours. Shocking I know! I'm going to the Magic Kingdom in a bit and will be eating over there. Can’t wait!

Glad I found this so I can follow along on your adventures and that will help remind me to keep an eye out for you when we get to WDW in Oct.

Ghirardelli!! YUM!!! We always try to make sure we visit at least once when we're there. Just a couple weeks ago we were in Chicago and there was a Ghirardelli there. We almost didn't go, but then I was able to convince the hubby that even though we'd had a very filling lunch, I always had room for ice cream. We didn't get a sundae, but just a waffle bowl of rocky road, but it was still so good and had us thinking of Disney!!

Thanks for letting me be nosey!

Anyhoo.... I am going to admit, right here in a publi forum that I actually like that cheese goo! Of course, I prefer my cheese goo on tortilla chips with jalepenos. Mmmm....

Speaking of Animation Academy - I have had some of the BEST character interactions in all of WDW there with the Queen of Hearts and Sorcerer Mickey. Priceless.

Thanks for continuing to update and allowing us to get a front row seat even though you are busy with your CP.

Thanks for joining in! Definitely stop by Splash while you're here in October. Ghirardelli is so good and that's awesome that there is one in Chicago. You can never go wrong with a waffle bowl full of rocky road!

So funny! The cheese would probably have been better with jalepenos - it definitely needed a kick. I have never seen the Queen of Hearts! That's awesome.

It's been very rainy here today, so I had time to write a few more reviews. There is a tropical storm nearby... Good think me ship is docked

Columbia Harbour House – Dinner (June 22nd)


This past Friday was my day off. After sleeping in, I pondered over my options and decided to go to the Magic Kingdom! Unfortunately it began to rain when I arrived, but I still had a fantastic time regardless. After watching a few indoor shows and going on Pirates of the Caribbean (it’s impossible for me to skip this one!) I went to Columbia Harbour House for dinner.

I absolutely love the theme of this restaurant – all the décor is nautical and it places you right in the middle of a ship. My favorite place to sit is on the second floor in an alcove of sorts. It is right above the walkway from Fantasyland to Liberty Square and makes for some excellent people watching.



After an internal debate, I decided to have the Lobster Roll with potato chips:






My roommate had this on our previous trip and loved it, so I really wanted to have my own. I have to say that I was slightly disappointed, however. First off, this was $10.49! Way too expensive for the small amount of food I got. Secondly, there was too much bun and not enough filling. It definitely felt like the bun was stuck in my chest; it was quite heavy… On the other hand, the flavor was spot on. I haven’t had very much lobster in my lifetime, but this is so good! Next time I think I’ll stick to the delicious deep fried shrimp – yum, so healthy!

This receives a …

Let me just tell you what I tell most people when I see them talking about the CHH Lobster Roll, if you ever have a chance to come to New England and try a real lobster roll...please do. Please don't let that be your only lobster roll experience because that is not a good representation of what we have here. First, that has way too much mayo and the lobster in that, you almost can't see it. Lobster rolls should have huge chunks of lobster.

Here is a photo of one from the place right near my office. (It's not even 9am and my mouth is watering.)


Now doesn't that look yummy?

Hey Betsy, thanks for the update. Sorry you were disappointed with your lobster roll at CHH. It is one of our favourite CS places but I have heard there is quite a variety in the standard of the lobster roll there.

The Salmon looked really good when I was there. I love all the variety they have added to the menu. The shrimp is so good!

Wow, that looks so good! Much better than mine. If I'm ever in New England I'll be sure to try a real lobster roll

Yes, CHH is definitely one of my favorite places at the MK. I think the lobster roll could be fabulous if they just made a few adjustments.

Plaza Ice Cream Parlour – June 22nd


After dinner I rode Space Mountain and declared it time for dessert. The rain had finally begun to letup, so the Main Street Electric Parade was going to start soon. As I glanced at the menu I noticed a new item: All American Sundae! I was going to try this, but I had been craving cookies and cream ice cream all evening and they wouldn’t make a substitution. I promise I will try it soon though – it looks awesome! Since I wanted cookies and cream, I went with…

The Plaza Sundae with Cookies and Cream ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry served in a freshly made waffle bowl.

Now, I did have a bit of a wait to get my sundae. I was 2nd in line and the CM called out a Cookies and Cream Plaza Sundae. A boy near me ran up and she gave it to him. After the man in front of me received his ice cream, I waited for about 10 other customers to get their food. The CM knew I had been waiting a while so she asked me for my receipt and after looking at it, immediately proceeded to make my sundae. Yay! She felt really bad for the amount of time that it took, but I told her that it was no problem at all and thanked her. I’m glad that I was the one that had been waiting rather than someone else – I’m sure most other guests would have been upset/annoyed and taken it out on her. Now that I know how much work goes into everything, I have gained so much more respect for all the Cast Members. With my sundae in hand, I hurried through the drizzle to the Main Street Bakery eating area.





Heaven. This was absolutely delicious. Cookies and cream with hot fudge is one of the best combinations on the planet. My waffle bowl was interesting… half of it was crunchy, while the other half was a tad soggy. Not sure what happened there, but it was still good.

I rate this a…


Oh and this only cost $5.11. Much cheaper than most sundaes and just as delicious! After I had finished my ice cream, I hurried over to the Barber shop to grab a spot for the Main Street Electrical Parade. Luckily the rain had stopped and it was only delayed by a few minutes. A great way to end the day!

Hi there Betsy. The lobster roll looks good. Sorry it wasn't as yummy as anticipated. At least you tried something new. Thanks for the photo of the upstairs dining area - I've always wondered what that looks like and now you have satisfied my curiosity.

Your cookies & cream ice-cream sundae looks wonderful - at least the hot fudge, cherry, whip cream, and waffle bowl! I love to eat just waffle cones since I can't really eat too much ice cream. I'm odd, I know.

BTW: I made it over to your blog and love the photos of your apartment. I went to enter a comment but my google log in wasn't working so..... just wanted you to know that I think your blog is soooo cool and informative!!

I'm looking forward to more my little Splash Mtn CM!
