O'hana Character Breakfast

This was our first Character meal ever and we didn’t really know what to expect. Honestly we love breakfast (especially the mickey waffles) and that’s why we made this ressie. We’d never waited to meet a character in the parks before so we weren’t sure what to expect with the interaction. You know… like, yeah I’m eating eggs, and you’re waving at me in a suit, but that’s cool.

Anyway, it was a cute experience. The characters were unassuming and were great at reading the wishes of guests. A simple wave and they were on to the next table. Though I did get a picture with stitch (I think he licked me ) it was fun and we’d do it again. The parade with the kiddos was especially cute.



The breakfast platter was very satisfying. The eggs and the mickey waffles were the best. I also loved the biscuit and the breakfast potatoes were really good.





The fruit platter was amazing. So fresh and delicious.

Mmmmm....the pineapple


Cinnamon bread.

Soft, sweet, and warm


Next: Cosmic Ray's and MNSSHP

We love Boatwright's and Raglan Road too and Riverside Mill at POR is probably one of the best counter service locations on property. Love the make-your-own pasta!

Great reviews, looking forward to more!

Joining late for your great reviews! I agree with you about the kona cafe macadamia nut pancakes... as much as I love them, the nuts get to be a bit overpowering after several bites. I now order them plain and ask for the macadamia nut butter and pineapple on the side.

Glad to see you enjoyed 'Ohana breakfast - even with people waving to you in costumes!

Ohhhhh...good idea! I may have to order the pancakes that way next time- they were pretty darn good. I'm glad we survived O'hana too

We may have eaten it all I think Raglan made it into the 'must do' list for us.

Cosmic Ray's & MNSSHP

After getting all costumed up and getting our wrist bands at the MK for the Halloween Party, we stopped for dinner at Cosmic Ray’s.

This was our first time eating here. Usually we go to Pecos but wanted to try something new. It was pretty busy in there but we easily found a seat after getting food.


I had the turkey sandwich and fries.

Sometimes you just feel like a sandwich, and this hit the spot. The turkey meat was fresh and the bread was hearty. Again though with the cucumbers on a sandwich (not for me). Once removed, I enjoyed the meal.


T had chicken nuggets.



I picked the chocolate gelato for dessert

This surprised me; I really liked it. Very Chocolaty…and a lot better than those fake little cakes in a cup.


T got one of the child desserts, a brownie I think, but I didn't get a pic. It's pre-packaged.
We enjoyed our dinner and would easily go back to Cosmic Rays. I must admit though, I missed Pecos Bills.


We really enjoyed MNSSHP. We actually waited in line for a pic with Jack Sparrow, and got tons of candy.

This is just one bag


They were also previewing New Fantasyland that night. That was pretty exciting. The Little Mermaid ride is super cute, Gaston's pub is amazingly detailed, and the beast's castle...whoa...the theming inside is very cool. Can't wait to see everything in its full splendor!




Up next: Mexico

You should try it. I could have easily just eaten the corn bread for dinner...it was that good!

La Cantina de San Angel

Our next stop was lunch at La Cantina de San Angel. This was a great choice. T ate here last year and loved it and I was in the mood for Mexican food.

We both had the Nachos.


Yummmmmm…I so could go for this right now. It was a cheesy gooey messy delight! So unhealthy but oh-so good. The tomatoes were fresh, the chips crisp, and the cheese sauce... Keep the peppers off if you don’t like spicy.

The churros were really hot and crispy with a soft center and were great with the caramel dipping sauce.



Next: Breakfast and Universal Studios food
