I can say that this was one of the best dishes i had there. and probably the best seasoned and flavored beef pot roast type dish i have had.
Not quite as vegan, either.

Well as most of you know that inside pavilian is dark, i have no idea how you can see your food in there to eat, but anyway when we told parker we were going on its a small world type ride, he was not having any of it.
Probably because you said it was like It's a Small World.

Thank you so much for the pics of menu boards and the food! I do love some good food porn!

Not to mention it gives me lovely ideas for what to make for dinner this week!

Glad you made the correct decision. It is so hard when your child is saying he is afraid and won't try something and can't convince him other than forcing the issue. I am glad he came around.


I am glad you tested that theory.


Of course he says that at the most inopportune time. Great save by the way.

And to the choice of words
yah the description of the topping had me thrown off as well.




always happy to test a theory that someone might or might not be thinking about.




i was just happy they gave us another set of fast passes to get back in.
you caught that ehh

We didn't get to the Carribbean booth, but that looked pretty darn good! I have to go back and check my notes...I got a shredded meat dish somewhere, but it wasn't that one. I can picture Noelle standing there with the little bird mouth. They're hard to resist that way!
hmm, another shredded beef? i cant think of any other ones i saw.

yep the little birdies get you every time.

i liked that they let you get back on for unforseen things like that...im sure it happens all the time for them.

When we go we always go during the Food and Wine Festival - so glad that you are enjoying it.

Oh, and not that I am an expert or anything, but you have some of the best photos I have seen in any trip/dining reports on here - enjoy the artistic ones
thanks for reading along

glad you can use this as a pre trip warm up.

thats great you have been to many of the food and wine times we really enjoyed it.

i saw that they announced some free dinning days for sept this year, do they overlap with your trip?

well i would have to call you an expert then if you say that they are good pictures, i try to make sure we have more than just the look her at the camera and smile pictures, try and catch more of the action live shots of what is going on and expressions.

first time i had berry weiss, i thought it was just a juice, was suprised at it being a beer as well...the wife loves it, and taste good on a really hot day, but then again what beer doesnt.


and it is because of my readers i take on that challenge of drinking down the beer in that time period.

Chapter 52. A Drink? Sure, why not.

Chapter 52. A Drink? sure, why not.

After we found Noelle and candi finishing Noelles lunch we headed back out to see what we could get into.

Since we started to the left that morning and already hit up the couple of food booths that way, it was time to go to the right so candi could get her long awaited first sample.

She opted for Hawaii.


She was really wanting the pulled pork slider.

She gave me a little bite and it was really good.



The booths all had a themeing to go with the country they were in, Hawaii was no different.

When she was ordering she asked if she should get a drink, i said sure why not, she said but we just finished a drink, i said no worries, that was leaving world show case you are not going back into world showcase its good.


so a 7 tiki mai tai was in order.


And since it is rude to make someone drink alone, i opted for a big wave golden ale.



close up of the sandwich.



Red dots to protect the innocent.

noelle really liked the pulled pork sandwich.



we really enjoyed this sandwich as well, i had just one bite though as candi really enjoyed it and i had already had 2 dishes on the other side of the world showcase.

next up was the desserts booth.


the booth itself was really neat with the paintings on it.


nothing was purchased here, as we did not find anything to spend our credits on that we really wanted.

Greece was up next.
and i thought hard about getting the chicken souvlaki but didnt see many reviews on it before we left, and decided to pass at the moment.


Next around the bend which was pretty much across the path from the greece booth was Canada

and here so much about there food on the people who eat at lecellier we had to try some to see what all the fuss was about ehhh.



here is there booth.


first up was the filet with the mushrooms, we both tried it without the mushrooms for the first bite, liked it then tried the mushrooms...now i am not a huge mushroom fan but these were pretty good, we ate about half of them with the rest of the steak.

now would i HAVE to eat at the restaurant to have this steak...no, it was good but i have had ones just as good other places.

now onto the next amazing dish that you hear so much about when people visit.

the cheese soup


i thought it was really good, noelle liked it as well.



candi also really enjoyed it, parker didnt care to try it.

was it the best i have had, it was up there, but best ever, would now go to the moosejaws beer cheese soup i had on the trip last month up to the dells, that was a world class beer cheese soup.


but i could make a trip to canada to get this soup. i just wish they had a walk up cheese soup line so i didnt have to go wait 180 days out to get a reservation to get a bowl of it.

one dish that i really wish i would have tried in canada after seeing others pictures of it, was the chicken chipotle sausage with polenta, but i guess there is always next time.

next up was Ireland laddies,



but just finishing a few samples at Canada we opted to pass on this one.


we ventured into the shops at the UK to see what was going on in there.

we really liked these different beer coaster sets they offered but just took pictures this time and passed on them.


they sell them in individual 25 packs or all 100 of them you can get for the price of 2 and a half of the 25 packs, so a better deal to be had.


the stores were pretty crowded and we did not see the kid cot station so we ventured on to the next land, and on the way we came across alice, but parker said he didnt care to see her...he has never seen that movie, so he didnt mind passing her up.



so we just took a a shot as we walked along past her.


next chapter will have more photopass in france, and we continue on to another country for our food and wine fest.

I've lurked my way through your report, but it's time to come play! Love your pics of everything and your family. I am absolutely pining to go to a F&W Festival, but it will have to wait as I'm a teacher and I can't take an extended vacation during that time. I'll take an extended weekend at some point, but my LOs haven't been to Disney at all (well, DS isn't even born yet! ) so the first time we take them it will be for a week.

thanks - saw about the free dining, but that does not overlap with our trip. We are staying off site via time share anyway

We did have the dining plan once and being able to use snack credits at the booths is just tremendous

Love the stroll around WS. I will be doing that soon enough.

The filet sample I had was good but for a snack credit ....

The chicken souvlaki was okay in Greece. Nothing extraordinary.

Can't wait to see where you went next.

Reliving F&W makes me so excited to be going back in October. I am literally halfway there.

Looks like everyone in your clan enjoyed their F&W noshing.

Your walk around WS looks great. Lots of great food to try.

The one that was questionable to me was in the dessert section. It said Chocolate Mouse with Chilli and Caramel. What a strange combo

Catching up on your tr. Love the dolls for Noelle and we carried our dd on to a few rides too on our first trip and she ended up loving them too. We are going on our second trip this year and our dates are almost exactly the dates you had Sept 24 - Oct 5.

Excellent choices! I really wanted to try that sandwich but wasn't hungry when we were there. VERY nice of you not to make Candi drink alone

There is always next time! I'll need to get the fillet and the cheese soup next time. That sausage and polenta was darn good I must say.

Great F&W updates!!! Teaching doesn't lend itself to taking time off during the festival but..maybe I will be..."out sick" one of these years...

Please tell Candi that I absolutely ADORE her shirt and I need one for myself...where oh where did she get that Minnie shirt?!

"The Incident"...

I have a friend who's DH is a Disney lover...however...he has some strange aversion to Duffy Bear. He always says, "Mickey Mouse has never needed to carry a teddy bear before...why does he need one now?!?!" I think Duffy is adorable, so my friend and I always have a laugh when Duffy is out for M&Gs, because her DH starts grumbling about it.
