It amazes me how picky kids will just not eat, rather than have the one or two things they will eat. I hope Amber found some yummy chicken nuggets later.
Hmm, they could be onions - you are right.

She did - this was by far the trickiest meal but looking back we all really enjoyed it, food aside.

So true!

Serious kudos to your parents for handling such a picky child. If one of my siblings only ate chicken nuggets I would probably lose it! I can handle some pickiness but I have a hard time having patience with people who will only eat one (maybe two) things .
She has been a problem eater forever. Long history that I wont go into lol... She also has some sensory and medical issues so this plays a part as well. It can be a pain, we were not too impressed with her at Akershus , but have just learned to have to deal with it. I believe it is also hard for her - she has tried but it is almost as if she phyiscally cant handle most food. Her pediatrian and family doctor have always said she will outgrow it - hasnt happened yet mind you
I agree though my parents are pretty patient!

I want Disney food

We did akershus for breakfast last trip, I didn't take pics of our food, I meant to, but I didn't. I didn't enjoy it much do we might have to try dinner next time.

Same with park fare. Our park fare was our best for character interaction, but no for food. It was okay but not great. I had a hard time finding stuff for v to eat.

I know, was saying to someone on here earlier that home food seems so mundane. Disney food is not just food it is an experience!

Day 5 - Part 1 - Restaurant-saurus



Day 5 we had lunch at Restaurant-saurus. This counter service restaurant is very neat with all the themed rooms. While I did not get to take any picture I did manage to explore.
We ate in the main room - photo below.



My dad, sister and Jett all ordered the chicken tenders and fries. Although it took about 10 minutes to get our meal (was really crowded and they mixed up the orders) they all said the food was piping hot, the chicken was moist and the fries were nicely seasoned. The picture just shows the chicken (the fries were quickly eaten).



My mum ordered a chicken breast sub (isnt on the menu on allears). It had moist chicken, cheese and a bruschetta type topping. My mum said the amount of bruschetta was a little overwhelming and she took some off. Other than that it was tasty! For dessert she ended up eating the chocolate mouse, although it is posted with my meal - was really rich and tasted very much like those at the TS restaurants.



For lunch I tried the Vegetable Sub-Saurus and it was good. It had grilled onions, mushrooms, red peppers, zucchini and melted provolone cheese. I also added some mayo as I dont eat sandwiches without it The vegetables tasted fresh and were perfectly cooked, the bread was nicely toasted and the provolone (albeit REALLY, REALLY stinky was generous) The fries werent bad (although I just noticed they were suppose to come with sweet potato fries ) I had the cheesecake in a glass for dessert. It was interesting... the jelly type thing was not very good imo and the graham cracker crumbs were not attached to the cheesecake. That being said the actual cheesecake was great!



Up next my favourite dinner with my favourite bear and his friends! Crystal Palace!

I can relate about the jelly stuff. It completely turns me off from eating a dessert. Hate the texture.

Love reading your reviews!

I know, I am okay with jams and jellys but they belong on toast, not on cheesecake

Its appreciated.

Great review of restaurantosaurus. We usually get lunch there on our AK day because I like their salads. I've never thought of provolone as a stinky cheese. Lol.

While my son doesn't ONLY eat nuggets like Amber...that turned out to be his go to food at WDW. He had chicken tenders for at least half his meals. He really liked the ones at Restaurantasaurus! Plus, we sat in the back room near the trailer..which was uncrowded and fun.

Cheers! I was thinking about getting a salad when we ate there but finally decided the the Vegetable Sub-saurus (I like its name too lol). No provolone is not usually up there on the stinky cheese rating

Was actually pretty impressed with the adult chicken at Disney - was good quality. We were also VERY grateful that so many places served them - even Captain Cooks at our resort (which was a pleasant surprise).
That is awesome! We just grabbed the first table we spotted and told Jett to guard it with his life lol. The main room was pretty busy and loud (would have been nice a quieter spot). The only benefits were it was right near the condiments bar/ drink machines and we saw it start to rain so were able to run out and grab the stroller before it became sopping wet.

Day 5 Continued - Crystal Palace

For dinner on Day 5 we met up with some old friends from the 100 Acre Woods; Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore at The Crystal Palace.

I will appologize in advance for the limited pictures. We were all having SO much fun that it actually slipped my mind!



We all enjoyed our dinner though. Lots of salad options (even a caesar salad without bacon ), bread and chicken for Amber, pasta, meats, fish, a really yummy stuffing, vegetables and some good desserts. To be completely honest none of us can remember exactly how our food was.
I am sure it was delicious but Pooh and his pals were so distracting. Jett also went on adventure #1 (adventure #2 to follow) exploring the opposite side of the restaurant, they do look the exact same (note dont leave a 12 year old on a mission to find chicken with her brother because as we learned the brother will get distracted by grapes and then attempt to find the way back to the table). Thank you to the lovely waitress who retrieved him

Here are some pictures from our dinner



Jett did say this mac and cheese was good and tasted like "the sunshine tree" aka sunshine seasons - no idea where tree came from?





Also who needs Prince Charming when you have this guy...

Day 6 Part 1 - Hollywood and Vine Lunch

Day 6 brought us to Disney Hollywood Studios and Hollywood and Vine with Playhouse Disney.



We arrived for our reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes before we were seated. Our waitress was a lovely lady who prompty arrived to our table, explained the buffet and throughout our meal brought our drinks (including the Pomegranate Lemonade - which I dearly miss, they dont sell here in Ontario, Canada )

Our meal was delicious! There was a great assortment - think it was even bigger than a couple of our dinner buffets. Did a little better with pictures this time around ,even though we were very distracted by all the things going around. The characters were Handy Manny (or Build it Bob, as my dad referred to him), Special Agent Oso, Jake (whom Jett was very excited to see) and June from Little Einsteins. Their interaction was great and the young guy who ran the activities through the meal was also really enthousiastic!

Jett somehow also managed to get lost for about 5 minutes (darn buffets that look the same on either side). He followed the 2nd activities leader to the opposite side, participated in the sing along (while we were scouring the restaurant looking for him) and then went back to the buffet to finish loading his dessert plate (where we found him).

Here are a few pictures from our buffet.

My First Plate


Was great. Good assortment of breads (including Foccaccia), boccanccini cheese, artichoke hearts, lots of pasta salads, veggies.

Jett's Lunch Plate (thrilling I know). Amber's essentially looked the same, just minus the mac and cheese lol.


My Mum's First Plate


She said it was her favourite! She really enjoyed the fact that there were sandwiches. She also had some fish, carved meat, chicken.

My Dad's First Plate


My Second Plate (Missed Getting Everyone elses plates as I was getting my pasta)


That cornbread and pasta was FANTASTIC!

My Dessert Plate


My one and ONLY complaint was with dessert. For some reason the ice cream bowls were warm? It made it that my ice cream was almost melted by the time I got back to the table.
The dessert assortment was smaller (since it was a lunch buffet) but still pretty good and everyone got something that they wanted.

Lunch ended with a bang when my mum (who works with children and used to work for childrens aid) and another family witnessed a man being very violent with his child, right in front of us! She asked the man if he needed any help and he basically ignored. She didnt want to attack him and remained calm but we were scared for the little guy so couldnt imagine what he was feeling (he was all of 4). We spoke with the manager who called security (although nothing at all was done) but just couldnt believe that someone would treat their child that way.

That being said our experience at H&V was GREAT and we would highly recommend for any Playhouse Disney fans. People who are not Playhouse Disney fans may be overwhelmed with the noise and all the goings on but still very yummy buffet!

He ordered from the kids menu and his chicken were these round little hockey puck like things. He ended up eating fries and sharing some of my sisters nuggets. Note: If you are on the DDP you can order from the adult menu for kids (at the counter service restaurants) - they just take a credit off, are not specific to kids or adults.
I've got to laugh because I used the same words to describe those kids' nuggets - little hockey picks. Except I called them little dried out hockey pucks.

Haha, they were horrible. Jett usually will eat chicken but he was disgusted by these. Dried out hockey pucks would describe them to a t, they were terrible looking.
