Mother, Daughter and Sausage Dining Review! Final Meal - Complete 9/27!!

Well – the sausage had NOT planned to go to Disney this year. We are going on a 7 night Mediterranean Disney cruise in June of 2013 and didn’t think it would be in the budget to squeeze in one more trip prior to the cruise. But the darn sausage talked us into a short trip! And you can’t say no! I know it's a month and a half away but I just couldn't wait to start my dining review.

I'm sure that you’re most excited about seeing the sausage again but also included in this mother/daughter/sausage trip August 27th – August 31st (we just added one more day so we'll now be there until Sept 1!!) are:


Me (Tracy) - Also in the photo is my favorite ginger but he does not like to travel (even though you see him here at Yellowstone National Park) so he won't be joining us. I’m becoming the Disney freak that I never thought I would be. I’m more excited to be going back than my DD! In a previous dining report I mentioned that I was lactose intolerant but that was a year ago and now I’m much more lactose intolerant which makes me sad. I used to be able to drink some milk or eat ice cream , pop a Lactaid and it would keep most symptoms at bay. Not so much anymore which makes me very sad. Thankfully I can still tolerate cheese! I still need the Lactaid for cheese but I’m doomed with ice cream! So you might still see some dairy items in my report…I’m from WI so you can’t expect me to go cold turkey!!


DD12 (Eilee, rhymes with smiley) - Eilee on the other hand lives for ice cream. If she were to become lactose intolerant at some stage in her life she would not stand for it! I’m pretty sure you will see her eating ice cream every day. And if she can find pistachio gelato, there won’t even be a question as to what she’ll be having! Eilee also loves steak and chicken and crème brulee. She does not like hamburger, fish or seafood. Keep in mind that this is vacation and we fully intend go hog wild and eat whatever we want whenever we want! I’m a very bad influence on my child when we are on vacation, not a good role model at all.

If you’d like to read the story of the sausage – please click here!
Sausage at Castaway Cay!



This will be our first time without the dining plan! It’s a long boring story but because of inexpensive park hoppers through the YES program and a room only discount it seems like we will come out ahead. I WAS trying to keep this vacation as inexpensive as possible and then I went and paid for breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table and made a dinner ADR at California Grill! I had the best of intentions, honest! We will be doing a split stay with two nights at Coronado Springs and two nights at Port Orleans Riverside and have not stayed at either before! It is truly a trip of “firsts” as we’re eating at all new restaurants and staying at new resorts. We have one of the new Royal Guest Rooms at POR so I’m excited to see what Tiana has in store for us! On a previous trip we stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter and Eilee went ape wild over beignets so I can assure you that we will end up walking over there at some point to get some. One cannot be in such close proximity to beignets and not go a little out of the way to get these powdered sugar covered, deep fried pillows of goodness!

A few tidbits about our eating style – we are not big buffet eaters so we won’t be going to any of those. Also, we do not plan our counter service meals. We just tend to find things that strike our fancy as we come across them. When my sister and I took the Keys to the Kingdom tour, our guide explained to us that when a restaurant has available seating, they send a cast member out front with a large white Mickey glove to entice guests to come inside. So I’m pretty sure that if we are hungry, and we happen to be walking by a table service restaurant and see a white Mickey glove waving at us…we would not be rude and we’d have to walk in!

So join the Sausage, Eilee and me on our fun, whimsical, overeating adventure! Next post will contain our dining plans!

Edited because we added one more day! Woo hoo!

So here is our plan so far! And keep in mind that we’re only there for 4 nights (now 5!!) and I’ve changed these ADRs about 800 times already so these are not set in stone.
Monday August 27 –50s PT Now Olivia's!at 6:20 pm.

Tuesday August 28 – Eilee is taking the YES class this morning at Animal Kingdom and it starts at 8:30. When she finishes up hopefully we’ll eat lunch at Flame Tree. We have dinner reservations at Rose & Crown 6:35pm.

Wednesday August 29th –Noon lunch at Les Chefs de France.

Thursday August 30th – We have an 8:40 am ADR at Cinderella’s Royal Table this morning! Eilee doesn’t know about this one but I’m pretty sure I’ll be the one that’s more stoked about eating here. Then 5:45 pm ADR at California Grill

Friday August 31st - Lunch at Via Napoli!

And these are our trip goals:
To make rope drop at least once
Try three different cupcakes
Ride the same ride 3 times in one day
Search for the paint brush on Tom Sawyer Island
To get three stealth photos of the sausage with characters
Eat a snack we’ve never tried
Get stuck on one ride (last time we got stuck on 4 different rides!)

Thanks for you kind comment about the pictures! I don't like to get my picture taken so I rarely have any recent ones of myself! So I lucked out to have this one taken just last week in Montana! Glad that you're joining in!

If Eilee likes creme brulee you must get one from Wolfgang Puck by the Christmas store in DTD.

Thanks for the tip! I'll have to take her there. If it's on the menu she will order it!

Extra day added!

When I'd originally written this I knew that I wanted to add one more day to our trip but I wasn't positive that I could make it happen. Well...I did some playing around with my vacation days and decided that I should just go for it! I called the YES program to see if we'd be able to add an extra park hopper day and they said that it was no problem. So for the whopping price of $9.90 we added an extra day. And at the same time the price of flights went down as well. It was in the cards for us!

So with that I have added one lunch at Via Napoli on our bonus day. I'll also need to call to add an extra night on to our resort stay but I haven't done that yet.

I also forgot to mention that I got a new camera that I'm dying to try out! I've never had a decent camera before so you can all be my food porn guinea pigs!

How exciting to squeeze in a trip to WDW! Your DD is so pretty!

We will be at CRT for breakfast on 8/30 - look for us!

I want to get stuck on a ride too! I love it when the lights come on and you know it is game over!

Excuse me while I go read up on the sausage antics.

I will definitely look for you at CRT! It will be my first time actually seeing someone from the DIS in person! What time is your ADR?

The sausage is pretty funky looking these days but we can't give up on him now! I just hope he doesn't accidentally open up at any time because then we'd have to put him to rest.
