My son would agree with you on the fried chicken! That was by far his favorite meal of the trip, he loved it so much.

Cape May Cafe - dinner, Candy Cauldron - snack

We continued our walk around the World Showcase. I was so happy because when we got to Mexico, there was Donald posing for pictures! I love Donald at any time, but Mexican Donald is just so cute. We had dinner scheduled for Cape May Café so we continued around past Canada and the UK again to the exit to the Epcot resorts and walked over to Beach Club. This was an ADR that both of us were looking forward to. We both adore crab legs and B declared that he was going to eat a sea of crab legs and nothing else. We had a 5:00 ADR and got there a little early so B played in the arcade. About 4:45 we were able to check in and get a pager and we were called in just about 5:00. Our server took our drink order and off we were to the buffet.














B did indeed eat his sea of crab legs and I had quite a bit myself. I do think he didn’t eat anything else but crab legs. I’m not sure how many plates he ate, but he filled quite a few buckets with the crab leg remains. I also tried some fried shrimp, veggies, red potatoes, corn bread and a roll. The fried shrimp I wasn’t too fond of. The potatoes and veggies were okay, but the corn bread was quite good. But really, the crab legs are the main reason we go and they were goooood.











B really had no interest in dessert, but I got a plate with assorted desserts to nibble. All of the desserts were pretty tasty, although I thought the brownie and the blondie were standouts.











Overall, this is another meal I’d give multiple ratings to. Per B, and I would agree, it would be an A++++ for the crab legs. I would give it an A for the desserts, but just a C for the rest of the food. Oh, and our server who’s name I think was Wang, she was very nice and extremely attentive with removing the buckets.

We went to Downtown Disney after dinner. We were a little hungry near the end of the night so we picked up a couple of snacks at Candy Cauldron. B got a chocolate cupcake with white frosting. I got a pretzel stick coated with chocolate and mini M&Ms. The pretzel stick was so yummy! B gave his cupcake an A and I would give the pretzel stick an A+.

We had breakfast again at the Pepper Market. B didn't even bother taking anything but bacon this time (he's a boy who knows what he likes). I got a little assortment of items. The cinnamon roll was actually quite good, and I do like the corned beef hash a lot. We would give this a B+.





This was a Magic Kingdom day. We were mostly in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland on our previous MK day, so today we focused more on Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland. We were in Liberty Square when lunch time rolled around so we went to Columbia Harbor House. I was really tempted to try the salmon on the menu, but went with a sure thing and got the fried fish basket. B got the fried shrimp basket. We got the standard counter service chocolate cakes with it for desserts. The fish was nice and fresh and tasty and B liked the shrimp. I ate the frosting off of the cake and B had a few bites. It wasn't a spectacular meal, but it was pretty good. We gave it an A-. What really gave us a laugh though was on line behind us a father was asking his daughter who looked to be about 7 or 8 what she wanted. She was looking at the menu and said she wanted cous cous with cheese sauce. The father pointed out that there was no cheese sauce on the menu, so she said just cous cous then. He asked her if that was all she wanted since the cous cous is only a side dish. She answered "and chocolate milk". There you have it, cous cous and chocolate milk, a classic pairing.

Sunshine Tree Terrace - snack

In the afternoon we stopped in Adventureland at Sunshine Tree Terrace for the best snack ever, and by that I mean the citrus swirl. Oh how I could write paeans to the glory that is the citrus swirl, that perfect combination of vanilla ice cream and orange slush, especially on a hot day. It is just heaven in a cup. If only I could be in MK now having one, ahhhhh. B was in total agreement with me on the citrus swirl nirvana and rated this an A+++++++. Yes, I have raised this child well.

Um. pardon my drool all over this post, this picture was just too much for me.

This is cruel! My DD and I waited in line for one of these and the machine malfunctioned when they were making one for the person in front of me. She got a disformed citrus swirl and when I asked for one they said the machine was broken and they couldn't sell anymore. We checked back but they were done the whole time we were there.

Oh, I would have been so sad if there was no citrus swirl available. And the whole time you were there, that's just wrong. Boo!

Whispering Canyon Cafe - dinner

We had a 5:00 ADR at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Similar to the previous day with our reservation at Cape May Café at Beach Club, we got to Wilderness Lodge early so B spent some time in the arcade. He had also gotten really into looking for Hidden Mickeys and we had the Hidden Mickey book with us, so we looked for some at Wilderness Lodge before it was time to check in. We were able to check in a little before 5:00 and were seated fairly quickly. Our seating was strange though. Instead of being seated in the main area, we were brought back through the restaurant into an empty area. Since we were one of the first families seated there were tons of seats available out in the main area and I wasn’t really sure why we were seated there. I wish I could describe it better, but if you’re in the lobby and you see where the fireplace is, we were on the opposite side of it. Some of the CMs seemed a bit confused too and one jokingly asked us what we’d done to be seated so far from everyone else. Eventually some other families were seated by us, but it was kind of off-putting being so far from the main action. It also killed the fun of asking for ketchup since we weren’t really by other people. The next time we go, if we were seated there, I would ask to be moved. The one good thing was that there was a hidden Mickey in the fireplace that our server did show us and we probably wouldn’t have found it otherwise.

We both ordered the skillet. The previous times we’d been there, B had ordered either a burger or a kid’s skillet, but got the regular skillet this time as did I. We were both looking forward to this because we both love barbecue. I ate some of the salad and we both had some of the corn bread which B really enjoyed. When the skillet came out we both went for different things. I loved the ribs and B went for the chicken. I had a little bit of the pulled pork and really liked the mashed potatoes. B liked the brisket a lot. Overall, we both thought it was very yummy! And I always love the glasses that the drinks come in. You'll notice in the pic that I have two diet Cokes. Our server said that she wasn't sure if I'd ordered a Coke or a diet Coke, so she brought both, but then both turned out to be diet Coke anyway.











For dessert, our server rattled off a list of desserts and none sounded familiar from the last time we were there. I asked for her recommendation and she recommended the bread pudding with bananas foster sauce and vanilla ice cream, while B got make your own s’mores. I didn’t care much for the banana fosters sauce, but oh my that bread pudding was good. It was very dense and rich, with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. B liked putting the s’mores together but found it mostly just made a mess.








While I can’t say I liked our seating much, that was the only negative about the meal. The food was excellent and our server was extremely nice and we gave this meal an A++.

They did the same thing to me and my DD last year. It was our first time there and she had no idea what to expect. We also had a 5:00 ADR, were one of the first seated in an empty restaurant and they took us to the back room. We didn't even sit, I immediately asked to be changed because it was completely away from the fun. We didn't think the food was the best but in the end our waitress made it a really great experience.

That's what I plan to do if it happens when we got the next time, but we still had a good time anyway. It just seemed so weird to be seated there when the rest of the restaurant was almost empty.
