Then disneydivamama & family had Mexican food again for dinner, this time at Epcot's...


La Hacienda de San Angel



She started with this cocktail...




Avocado Margarita
El Mayor premium silver tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, agave nectar and fresh lime juice, served frozen with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim



disneydivamama said, "This was good. I liked the subtle flavors. Here's the thing though. I am not a heavy drinker at all. Tequila usually gets me quick. I felt nothing from this drink!"





For her entree, ddm chose...





Tacos de Camarones
Fried shrimp, chipotle-lime aioli, cabbage, lime and salsa verde, all served over flour tortillas



disneydivamama said, "They were fine. Nothing great. I ended up eating the shrimp out of a couple of them."



Her DH chose this for his entree...







ddm said, "DH had the short ribs. He thought it was dry...it had definitely been sitting out waiting to be served under the heat lamp. Not something I would have ever paid $26.00 for typically."




Then for dessert, disneydivamama chose this...




Empanada de Manzana
Puff pastry filled with sauteed caramel apples, served with dulce de leche ice cream and cajeta (caramel sauce)




ddm said, "I liked the ice cream, but for me, the pastry wasn't worth the calories!"




Her DH had this for his dessert...






disneydivamama said, "He enjoyed it; liked the subtle heat and the combination of flavors."



disneydivamama's overall comments, "My honest opinion of the place? I would never pay out of pocket for it. WAY overpriced. It was obvious that our food had bee pre-prepared and was waiting on the warmer. We ordered, I took DD to the restroom, and our food was waiting for us when we returned. Our family knows good Mexican food...at about 1/3 of the price."

Since we haven't yet received any updates from our current live reporters today, I'm going to post some of the updates which Gina (Gina99) emailed to me from home yesterday. As you may recall, Gina and her family took their first trip to Disney World from 11/24 - 12/1 and she emailed some live updates to us during the first few days of her trip. However, being her first trip to Disney World, she became a bit overwhelmed with it all. But now that she is home, Gina was able to send us all of her great updates.

So without further ado, let's bring on the food.



This first update is from 11/27 at the Polynesian Resort's...


'Ohana Lilo and Stitch Best Friends Character Breakfast






Gina said, "We started out with the pineapple coconut sweet bread and you can see my boys ripped in to it as soon as they brought it to the table.







Gina said, "We also had a fruit tray and some guava juice cocktail."








Gina said, "Then we had our big tray of eggs, sausages, biscuits, bacon, and potatoes.
The Mickey waffles were served separately."

"The big win with this breakfast was it being served family-style. I found this method really worked for our family with 2 young children. We had the selection of a buffet but didn't have to keep the kids entertained while grabbing plates!
It was a win win!"

Next up is from Gina & family's lunch on 11/27 at Epcot's...


Coral Reef







First a menu pic...






Gina said, "Our appies were the Fried Shrimp and Crab Cakes - both were delicious!"





Crispy-fried Shrimp with Coral Reef Slaw and a Spiced Rémoulade








Crab Cakes with Tropical Fruit Salsa and Tequila Aïoli




Then for their entrees, they chose...






Coral Reef Lobster Orecchiette Pasta
with White Cheddar Cheese and Basil Oil








Grilled New York Strip Steak
served with Roasted Potatoes (per menu, but looks like there are Mashed Potatoes in the pic), Mushrooms, Spinach (don't see either mushrooms or spinach ) and Red Wine Sauce








Kids' Cheese Pizza & French Fries



Gina said, "I had the lobster pasta for lunch, Armando had the filet and the kids had the cheese pizza. Gabe thought this pizza was the best hed had. It had a nice thick crust and crispy cheese - yum!"

"The lobster pasta was disappointing though. A lot of the noodles were stuck together and chewy but Armandos filet was great!"






Then for their desserts, they had...





The Chocolate Wave served with Raspberry Gelato







Baileys and Jack Daniels Mousse with a Caramel Crisp


Gina said, "I had the chocolate wave, which was a typical lava cake. Armando had the mousse which was one of the biggest servings of mousse we had ever seen!!! It was the dessert winner!"

Next up is another update from Gina (Gina99).


She and her family had dinner on 11/27 at Epcot's...



La Hacienda de San Angel



First is a pic of the Drinks menu...







From this, Gina chose...




Rosita Margarita
El Mayor premium silver Tequila, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice and rose infusions, served on the rocks with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim








Traditional Tequila Flight
Partida Blanco, Don Julio Reposado, and Tres Generaciones Añejo



Gina said, "You can see Armando’s one big smile of the night was doing the tequila flight. I had the Rosita Margarita which was yummy too. Thank heavens for booze!"



Next a pic of the Dinner Menu...






Then Gina said, "For appies, Armando had the fried shrimp, which were the best part of the meal and I had the taco trio - sorry no pics as we were too hungry to remember!"




For their entrees, they chose...




Tacos de Camarones
Fried shrimp, chipotle-lime aioli, cabbage, lime and salsa verde, all served over flour tortillas








Pollo al Pastor
Achiote marinated chicken served with roasted vegetables, beans and pineapple relish



Gina said, "For dinner, Armando had the tacos del camarones, which ended up being deep fried shrimp and not as good as the appetizer ones. I had the chicken and the sauce was good, but the rice was very dry."



A picture of the Kids' Menu...









Kids' Cheese Quesadilla
Flour Tortillas filled with Monterrey Jack Cheese, served with Mexican Rice, and Green Beans



"The kids had the cheese quesadilla, which was really cheesy and they enjoyed it."




Gina said, "For dessert, we had the churros, which were okay, but nothing to write home about unfortunately."



In conclusion, Gina said, "Unfortunately, this was our most disappointing meal of the trip, both for food and service. No one smiled here, no one talked to us or asked if we’d been there like every other restaurant. The food took over an hour, they forgot about us at check in, and overall, we were really disappointed."


"At least when we got back to the room, there was a cool towel stingray!"






6 Scavenger Hunt Points Earned for 3 Menu Pics, Rosita Margarita, Tequila Flight, and update with Chicken Entree

Then disneydivamama had lunch at Animal Kingdom's...



Flame Tree Barbecue





Barbecued Chicken Salad with mixed greens tossed with barbecued chicken


disneydivamama said, "I got the salad. Loved this! I had thought all along that I was going to get the turkey sandwich, but I was craving a little more green. One thing I loved about this salad is that it was mixed throughout, so I got veggies and chicken all the way to the bottom of the bowl. There were chickpeas, corn, tomatoes, and lots of roasted chicken."






Ribs and Chicken Combo served with baked beans and coleslaw



disneydivamama said, "DH got this and he really enjoyed it. The chicken was moist and flavorful!!!"



1 Scavenger Hunt Point for Ribs & Chicken Combo



2 Point Roulette Bet on Animal Kingdom Group 3 for Flame Tree Barbecue

Then disneydivamama sent an update from her dinner at the Polynesian Resort's...


Captain Cook's





Pork Nachos


disneydivamama said, "I really wanted to like these! I don't have a valid reason why I didn't, so think it was because I just wasn't that hungry."

Just a reminder that one of our favorite Disney Dining Reporters will be back at Disney World tomorrow!



MickeyNicki


Nicki and Todd will be going back to WDW for some Holiday Cheer from 12/6 - 12/9.
Though her review won't be "Live" this time, I'm sure it will still be great because they are meeting up with KatMark, her DH, their DS, and his DGF, which means 3 x more food than usual!




Have a Great Holiday Trip Nicki, Todd, KatMark & family!!!
