I haven't been to Rose and Crown since I was a kid and you made your dinner reservations at those super cool kiosks inside Spaceship Earth, but it seems be on my perennial list of places to try that we never get around to. But that description of the sticky toffee pudding... well, maybe I'll have to change that!

Glad you're enjoyed POFQ. Another thing on my Disney someday list. How were the busses?

Wow, that sticky toffee pudding looks delish! I had a terrible experience at R&C a few years ago, and vowed never to go back, but I keep seeing these good reviews, so maybe I'm being too hasty. You're description of a buttery-goodness cake may have just pushed me over the edge and back into considering R&C for dining!

Sorry you missed Illuminations again this trip, but that just means you'll have to catch it one extra time on your honeymoon!

I haven't been to R&C in a while either... but it is really atmospheric in there...

Your entrees look good... I'm a big Yorkshire Pudding fan... & the Stickey Toffee Pudding looks off the hook... (oh dear... I think I may be watching too much Diners, Drive Ins and Dives... Guy Fieri always says that...)

(Have been to Raglan Road recently though... and I'm now a huge RR fan...)

I've never been to R&C, and wasn't too excited about the menu, but your selections (minus the scotch egg) looked soooo good!! I think it will be included in my next trip!

Pretty night time shots at Epcot too!

Oooh, wedding planning! YAY!

"I chose to stand, knowing that with my level of grace, I would end up having to be fished out of the World Showcase lagoon." hahaha YES yes. The people who can balance the tiny F&W plates AND their bodies on the fences are impressive.

That Scotch Egg. Whoa. WHOA. That's something that I'm really not sure of... would it gross me out? Would I love it? Both? Hmmmm

Oh man, that Scotch Egg is my absolute favorite appetizer in all of WDW! The funny thing is, I'm not that big of a fan of either hard boiled eggs or sausage but when you combine the two, yum! I'm going to be craving those the rest of the day!

We actually tried Scotch Eggs at a restaurant on an trip out to see my brother in OH. LOVED THEM! I had no idea that the Rose and Crown had them!

I can't wait to hear about the wedding planning!

So the answer to the Flickr mystery is......drum roll please.......I can see your cell phone pics, but NOT your camera pics. I can also see my cell phone Flickr pics, but I don't have a real account so I've never uploaded anything from my camera.

So - I am picturless for this update. Boo!

I have had the surf and turf at R&C and I LOVED it too. I really need to get back there. I have been craving Bottingtons ever since Cynthia texted me a picture of one this weekend.

I want to say that I did look at all your lovely photos on FB and they are absolutely wonderful. You look simply beautiful. The photography is magnificant and you really have to give a plug to your photographer. Just lovely.

Anyhoo - I'll be back later to see your pics.

Oh my goodness! I never knew what the Scotch Egg actually was. How cool! I can't tell if I would love it or hate it but it's very intriguing! All of yall's food looks so good!

Oh no! I really, really hope you'll be able to see IllumiNations whenever you're back at Disney again!

I think we need a Stringbean Dance!! (imagine the banana is green and skinnier!)

I love your updates!!
I soooo want to crash your Disney Wedding!!

On an different note, we love R&C. It's hard for me to make too many repeat ADRs in the WS though, knowing how many WONDERFUL TS places (and CS) there are to try.
Right now for my January trip I have one lonely little dinner space empty on an Epcot night and I have booked, cancelled, re-booked etc and I'm still undecided as to the winner. R&C is in the running, though I keep telling myself to try somewhere new to us...like Via Napoli!!!

ETS, I did actually search for a dancing string bean, but imagine my surprise and dismay when I couldn't find one!

Wow, that meal at Rose and Crown sounds amazing! I've never made the ressie thinking we wouldn't find much we'd want to eat there, but now I may have to book one! That dessert has me drooling.

Can't wait to hear about the wedding planning!

I'm not so sure about the Scotch Egg, but that sticky toffee pudding looks delicious!

I laughed that the CM realized the anniversary/engagement mix up and came over to your table to fix it. the plus side is that you got two buttons, and you can never have enough celebratory buttons!

The Scotch Egg sounds very interesting! Hopefully we will get to Rose & Crown one day.

I totally thought that the CM drew the mustache & glasses on your anniversary buttons I'll be ok, really.

Brandon loves that Scotch Egg too! I wasn't brave enough to try it, hard boiled eggs kind of freak me out!

Mmm that sticky toffee pudding looks good! I don't remember what desserts I've had when I've eaten there, but I don't think I've ever had that!

I can't believe you love Epcot as much as I do, and you didn't see Illuminations on your trip!
