Karamell Kuche Deliciousness

Karamell Kuche Deliciousness
June 25, 2012


After our ride, we moved on. Germany!









It was pouring, so we stopped in Karamel Kuche. I mean, while we’re here, why not get a snack?? It smells so good in there!!!















We got caramel popcorn, a chocolate and caramel covered strawberry, and a pretzel. I had the strawberry on the move!









Looking back! Rain Rain Rain!

BOOOO last day. Ugh, the breakfast at Sunshine Seasons is just... BLECCCCH. I've actually determined that IT is what made me sick that time in Dec. 2011. LAME-O.

Hooray for FP pixie dust!!! Aww, all your Mexico pictures are making me happy. Love that pavilion!!!

I can totally see why you must have been annoyed with the rain. I hope your upcoming trip is RAIN FREE!

I am all caught up on your TR as I was woefully behind. I just love all your pictures and all the fun you and your mom are having despite the fact that it appears to be raining in all your recent pictures.

I absolutely love Boma. I will be staying at AKL for part of my October trip so I am just soaking up all the AKL pictures I can find.

Congrats on finishing your sophomore year and having a Disney vacation to look forward to. That's awesome!

I know! It's the worst! At least you'll be in Disney TOMORROW!

Hmm, I wonder why it's so yucky!

Yay! I love that pavilion too!! It's so great!

I do too! Rain is so annoying!

Yay! I completely understand! I get so far behind on everyone's reports! It's bad! Thank you! We loved the trip even though it was rainy!

I'm glad you love Boma! My mom does too! I wish I liked it more! AKL is fantastic! I really want to stay there soon!

Thank you! I'm really so excited!!!

Oui Oui Monsieur

Oui Oui Monsieur
June 25, 2012


We moved on to France where our ADR was- CHEFS! It was still only like 11:30am, so we decided to shop around a bit before checking in.

















Can I just live here?? It’s just such a cute little area!



















I loved this!

Les Chefs

Les Chefs
June 25, 2012


We checked in at Chefs at 12, and were let immediately in! We had a window seat which was really nice. Of course the rain began to clear up when we got inside.







Our server, Jeremy, was very nice! He’s from Paris and he and my mom spoke back and forth a lot. I just listened! I know French a lot better than actually speaking it. He asked my mom how she knew French, and she told him that she was born in Quebec, and I don’t think he understood that we don’t live there! LOL! When our meal was over, he told us to have a safe trip back to Canada! LOL!!

Anyway, the food was delicious! We started with baguettes and butter which was yummy!!





For my appetizer, I ordered the French Onion Soup which was sooo good, but OMG was it HOT! It took me soooo long to eat because it was literally hot lava! The cheese was amazing! OMG, I just love it!



Mom had the house salad with a vinaigrette dressing for her appetizer. I mean, it’s a salad…



For my entrée, I ordered the Croque Monsieur which is basically a ham and cheese sandwich. OMG. IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. The bread crust was like so hard to eat because it was so crunchy, but OMG the ham and the cheese! YUM! The ham was like real ham, and not thin deli meat!! It was so good!





Mom got the Demi-poulet roti which is chicken with roasted potatoes and broccoli. She said it was really good!



We could see the entertainment from our table!



For dessert I ordered the crème brulee which was so good, but I was so full!!!





Mom got the Profiteroles which is a cream puff and ice cream. OMG this was delicious!!!



Remy came to visit during the meal…it was kind of strange! LOL! It was cute, though!



Overall, the meal was delicious! The service was great, and even though it was weird seeing a rat on a tray, it was cute and added to the experience. The only thing that kind of bothered us about the meal is that it took SO LONG. I know it’s preferable not to be rushed out, but it was our last day, and we wanted to be out in the park! Like literally it took two hours for us to eat our meal…it was a little much!! The food was super good though! I would definitely come back!

Just read the TR and it seems like you had a lot of rain that week. Boo on that. And as for AKL I will have to let you know how it is. I am staying there for two nights in June. Can't wait to read more!

My word did you two get a lot of rain on that trip. Yikes! So soggy at AKL..Epcot...all over. Flip Flops + rain...not a great combo

Boma does have a lot of curry, plenty of other options too but I think sometimes it can be hard for folks to tell what is what. I love it but it's not for everyone for sure.

Your lunch however looks perfect! My idea of a Les Chefs lunch plus Remy to boot.

Shouldn't take two hours though.

Wow! Didn't realize how far behind I was!!! GREAT updates!!!! And question #1....how in the world did you get all of those souvenirs back on the plane?????


The rain?!!! Good grief! I totally know the frustration....remember we were there at the exact same time! And I could just kick myself for not meeting up with y'all! Of course I didn't realize that you were there until after the fact.... When I read your AKL June 24th post, I couldn't believe it. Y'all were showing up, and we were leaving for the Dream. The resort is really quite awesome!! I totally agree with you. The pool is probably one of my favorites. And Boma....like you, I wasn't overly impressed. We've done breakfast there, and prefer that. It was super crowded for us, too. I think one of their problems is the seating. If they would remove a fourth of the tables, it would make a more comfortable dining experience.


Don't ya hate last days?! Of course you know you'll be returning, so that eases the pain a bit It didn't look too crowded, either...maybe the rain kept people away


Looking forward to your next TR!!!!!

We really did! I hope it's not as soggy this time!!

I really wish I liked curry! Everything looked really good and my mom loved it!! I like to think I'm an adventurous eater....

OMG it was so good!!! I really can't say anything bad about the food at all! They were just taking up our precious park tim!e!!

I don't even know how we did that!!

I know, the rain was SUCH a bummer!! I just hope it doesn't rain this June!!

I really wish we could've met up!! Darn!! That would've been perfect timing too!

Boma definitely looks better for breakfast- I've never been, but it looks yummy!! I do wish I liked it better, though!

Last days are always the worst! I just can't believe we will be back so soon! The crowds actually weren't bad that day!

AHHH!!! I'm so excited!!!

Goodbye World Showcase!

Goodbye World Showcase!
June 25, 2012


After we stuffed ourselves silly, we went back into France to continue shopping and perfume smelling!





We went back out of the WS the way we came…













Too funny!





















…and stopped in Mousegears.



It was about 2:30pm, so we decided to go back to POFQ. We were acting pretty silly at that time because we were so tired! We spoke in a British dialect the entire way back from Mousegears to the resort! It was so funny!
