It was fantastic in there, as I mentioned, so beautiful, quiet, nice music and most importantly air conditioned! It also had a beautiful view of the WS Lake.
When we went to cantina it was in the middle of a storm. We got a little wet but not bad. Wished known there was other seating!!! It was probably full. I was really looking forward to cantina and it did not disappointing had the nachos I believe and I inquired about the green sauce. The meal was delish but I got so sick that night and part of the next day. Up half the night with cramps. I guess it just did not agree with me!

I have been googling and found a place called Casa Salsa. It is a Mexican Food place and they are in the Kitchener Market. This is their website... seem to have some pretty good options.

Day 8 Part 1 - Chef Mickeys!

Day 8's plan was to be my favourite, Chef Mickey's breakfast. I think out of all the meals this was the one 4/5 members of my family were looking forward to the most.

My mum, Amber, Jett and I headed out of our room with plans to catch the monorail at 10:00 for our 10:40 reservation at Chef Mickey's. First mistake, always give yourself an hour! My dad was right behind us as we were going to check out the gift shop at the Poly first. Mistake 2, dont split up from your group unless you have every base covered! After we browsed and got a scrapbook kit and photo album sent to our room we headed upstairs to meet my dad at the monorail. Well my dad was nowhere to be seen AND the monorail was down... FANTASTIC.

They were not sure when it would be up and running but said to go to the front desk for what our options were at that point. Well, after 15 minutes of waiting my dad was still nowhere to be seen. We had planned on meeting right there so where on earth did he go? Note, as Canadians we did not have cell phones so had no way of contacting one another. There was no way he passed us as we were standing right there, right? We decided to send my mum down to the lobby to see what our options were and call the room... no answer. We decided that we were going to just head out on the bus (they were doing runs between GF, TTC, MK and then Contemporary) and were really worried as we were told Breakfast reservations only went to 11.... they actually go to 11:30 (and then you can stay there until 2 if you really want).

So we hopped on the bus (was about a 25 minute ride and we arrived at 11:05). At this point we were frazzeled, still minus one member of our group and I was devestated that we missed our reservation/ couldnt have breakfast.

We sprinted through Contemporary lobby went upstairs to see who sitting there, my dad. He had heard that the monorail was down and figured that we would have just taken the bus. Really, you think we would have just taken off? Do you realize the stress you have caused?

Thankfully the CM at the entrance was lovely, let us know all the details and sat us at a great table right beside the buffet. Yeah!

Now onto the food and experience at Chef Mickeys!




We had so much fun here. They character interaction was amazing, our waitress was friendly and got our drinks prompty (even went to the kitchen to grab some milk for Amber since she is not a juice fan) and the food was the best! There were SO many options oatmeal, eggs (including hard boiled, hooray), waffles, pancakes, meats, fruits, croissants, french toast, quiche, the most amazing cheesy shredded potatoes I have had in my life , cinnamon buns, cottage cheese, and a great dessert section (among many others). I again had some trouble getting a picture of everyones plate since we were distracted by the characters and all went up to the buffet at different times but I gave it a shot!

Even Amber was able to find some things that she liked. She had a Mickey waffle, a pancake, a croissant and some dessert items. I missed a picture of my dads plates but I recall him having an assortment of food, most that involved some sort of meat!

The pictures below are of my mums first plate, Jett's first plate and my 2 plates. Again the food tasted awesome, there was such a variety and it was all hot and fresh tasting... nothing had been sitting out.









While Amber and Jett enjoyed the dessert table the adults were all too stuffed so I just took a picture!



A picture of Minnie Mouse signing our Autograph Page. Just a tip with this and the other character buffets. What we did was get a DISign for each restaurant including the character ones from the Creative DISign forum and had the characters sign. These will be great for the scrapbooks and the characters spent extra time noting themselves in the "invite"! Was a really fun extra that I had seen someone give as a tip!



Overall Chef Mickey's (despite all the stress beforehand) turned out to be everyones #1 and I would highly recommend, especially for Breakfast since the options were so vast!

Day 8 Part Deux - Captain Cooks

After a sad goodbye to Magic Kingdom, sad music playing from the speakers, tears and all we decided to grab another late supper at Captain Cooks. Again, everyone at the Polynesian had the same though, quite a few people seemed to be leaving the next day as well - based on conversations in the restaurant.

For dinner my mum ordered the same Adult Grilled Cheese and enjoyed it just as much - she said again the cheese was perfectly gooey, toasted and the fries tasted a bit better. My dad ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger again and said it tasted even better than the first one!

Amber and Jett both ordered the Kids Chicken Nuggets with 2 sides of Chocolate chip cookies for dessert (one for now and the other for flight home). Despite the fact that they were the hockey pucks both Amber and Jett scarfed them down!



I decided to switch it up, despite the fact that I loved the Grilled Cheese I wasnt a fan of the fries so wanted something different. I chose the Grilled Vegetable Flatbread which had a pesto sauce as the base. It tasted really good (flatbread wasnt overdone, the pesto was nice and the cheese was gooey). That being said I was really underwhelmed with the amount of grilled vegetables - I think there were 10 small pieces of red peppers and mushrooms so really didnt taste them too much. I wish there were, not only, more vegetable but more assortment (maybe some onions, tomatoes, zucchini etc.).



Overall was a good meal to end the day! In the morning we thankfully had a CS left on our Free DDP so we grabbed some breakfast, again at Captain Cooks, there and to go before our 9am trip on Magic Express

So my dining report has come to an end. I would like to thank those of you who have followed and hope you have enjoyed! If anyone continues to have any questions or comments please feel free to post!

I may consider doing a trip report and sharing... we will see. If I do I welcome you to join in!

So here it goes

Our last morning we, as mentioned, had to take the Magical Express pretty early in the morning. Thankfully we had counter service meals left over so were able to get breakfast before we left.
We had 5 meals left We would have had 6 but the night before my dad grabbed 2 Bacon Cheeseburger meals from Captain Cooks, little piggie lol.

My brother ordered the Kids Mickey Waffles with a side of fruit and yogurt cup. As well as an apple juice. We only had about 15 minutes so he didnt quite finish (we saved for the airport and he ate before we went through security). He said it was yummy and again loved that it was Mickey! He didnt particularily like the mixed fruit, was mostly melons.



I ordered the Croissant Sandwich, just egg and cheese. It was really good! The croissant was soft and buttery tasting, the egg was perfectly cooked and the cheese, well it was cheese lol. The picture is not the greatest...pretty blurry, I appologize.



My sister ordered the Mickey Waffle with a side of Sausage (Jett ate those). She ate both ears and said she was full... again we saved for the airport. She said it was pretty good, which is a compliment coming from her!



My mum ordered Tonga Toast (I believe it also came with a side of bacon). We also ordered an extra one for the road (I tried a couple of bites before we packed it up) and must say it tasted much better warm (although I cant say it was bad cold). I was looking forward to trying the Tonga Toast and it lived up to the expectation. The bread was soft, the bananas were perfectly gooey (even cold) and nice and sweet! I have since tried to make at home and as the kids would say it was an "epic fail"!



Overall, was a great way to end our trip! We were able to try some fantastic food and some more average. I dont regret any of it though. Was a fantastic vacation, made extra special by the food we got to enjoy!

Thanks for posting a great food report! I'm going in 9 days with my 4 year old princess and eating at a few of the places you went to. It's good to see pics of the food beforehand, since little princess only eats bread, rice and crackers for the most part.
