Two great updates. You got a lot done at the Studios that morning. We never did get to Writer's Shop this trip.

We had a long line for the Great Movie ride too...I was quite surprised.

Your daughter looks adorable with her face painted.

They are so yummy. Someone just posted the recipe on the dining thread. They looked fairly easy to make.

Cute face painting job.

DD loves to get her face painted.

Yum - Le Cellier. Can't wait to hear about that meal.

It was amazing as usual.

Lovely pictures of the world showcase.
Thanks !! I just love the WS. We are staying at Boardwalk on our next trip. So looking forward to being so close to it.

It was very long. But it does move fast. So even though the line seems long, you really don't have to wait. Plus, you have that fabulous movie montage to enjoy while you are waiting.

Your daughter looks adorable with her face painted.

DD loves to get her face painted. And it always turns out so cute.

Day 4- Part 4

We checked in for our late lunch ressie at Le Cellier. We were seated after about 10 minutes or so. DH ordered a Moosehead.



The rest of us had soda. We ordered the amazing Cheddar Cheese Soup.



Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup - Made with Moosehead Beer and Bacon
Cup $5.49 Bowl $6.99

This stuff so good every time. DH gets a bowl. I just get a cup so I don’t get too full.

Our waitress brought us out some pretzel bread.



We didn’t bother with any of the other bread because we knew all we would eat was the Pretzel bread. So good. This was warm and soft and salty.

Just like it should be.

DS ordered the burger

Le Cellier House Burger - roasted mushrooms, smoked bacon, maple barbecue, Black Diamond Cheddar, and crispy onions, and french fries
$14.99



He ordered it plain. Just bun, cheese and meat. He really liked it, but couldn’t eat it all. So DH and I each had a bite and it was really a good burger. The fries were fantastic. My very favorite kind. Thick and crispy on the outside, but soft and fluffy on the inside. DS didn’t have a problem finishing them and DD might have stolen a few herself.

DH and I both ordered the

Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon - Le Cellier signature dish served with wild mushroom risotto and white truffle butter sauce $27.99



Heaven on a plate y’all !! We loved this. The filet was very tender and delicious.

DD – aka the pickiest child on earth – chose buttered noodles. She about half of them.



For dessert, DD and DS ordered the chocolate moose.



I had this



I have been trying to find a description of it somewhere but I can’t. It was some kind of pecan pie stuffed in this glass with chocolate mousse on top. It was very rich and very delicious. I only managed half and DH had a few bites and really liked it, too. It was a huge portion. I very much enjoyed it.

DH had the Maple Crème Brulee.



He said it was very rich, too. But after he tried mine, he said mine was much more rich. The crème brulee was amazing and he loved it.

We really enjoyed this meal. Our server was amazing and had no trouble using our TiW card for the drinks and extra soups. I can’t tell you how disappointed I am about this restaurant going to 2 credits next year. I feel like we won’t go there when it becomes two credits. As amazing as I think this meal is. I am not sure I think it rates as two credits for lunch.

This was an excellent Disney dining day for us !! So many good things.

The original design was yellow tones, bus he asked the person painting to do it in pink and he obliged.

MMMMM. PRETZEL BREAD.

I totally agree that Le Cellier shouldn't have gone up to 2-credits. I just don't understand why they felt the need to basically double in price, as far as the dining plan goes at least! It's silly.

Lunch looks yummy. I'm sorry to see lunch going to 2 credits for those on the dining plan as I don't think it is necssary. We were very disappointed with our dinner there in September 2011 (no substitutes, the steak was not as good as usual), and we had hoped to go back for lunch next year. But after eating at Yachtsman I don't think we'll be going anywhere else for steak but Yachtsman.

But I do LOVE that soup at LeCellier.

I agree that Le Cellier should not be a two credit lunch, especially if you are ordering a burger.

I haven't eaten there for awhile, but I do love that filet and it really looks SO yummy!

I know they have the BEST creme brulet

I am sorry your dinner wasn't good. All of our meals there have been fantastic. I have never eaten at Yachtsman, but it is definitely on my Disney bucket list !!

Yeah, I don't get it. It just seems like a bad move to me, but what do I know.

We really enjoyed our meal there. The filet was perfect as always.

DH really enjoyed the creme brulee. I never pass up a chance to eat chocolate - EVER.

I get that they probably want a bit of consistency with the LC lunch/dinner credit amount, but I agree that the lunch menu will definitely need an overhaul to warrant 2 credits. Maybe it'll be like the Brown Derby, with one menu for both lunch and dinner?

I know, right ??? That pretzel bread is so good.

I see it as an epic fail. But I guess we will see how it goes. They better step up their game for lunch in my opinion. Sigh. If only they had the F&W kiosk year round and we could get our soup fix anytime we wanted.

Is Brown Derby two credits ?? I have never been there. Is that the only lunch that is tow credits ?? Just curious.

Day 4 – Part 5

After our delicious meal at Le Cellier, we caught the boat back to HS, headed out to the car and made our way back to SSR to get some rest. After an hour or two, DH took the kids back over to Disney Quest while got some laundry done, and packed some. They stayed for about 3 hours and got food from the counter service at Disney Quest and brought it back to the room.

DH and I split a hamburger



The kids each got chicken and french fries.



For dessert, they got two brownies and a strawberry shortcake.





This day was the college football rivalry weekend and our team, the South Carolina Gamecocks were playing our rivals, Clemson. This was a highly anticipated game because we were 9-2 and they were 10-1. They were ranked 11 and we were ranked twelve. So the match up for this year was a very exciting one. Clemson was ahead in the first quarter and we had a back-up quarterback in the game. Our #1 quarterback was hurt and NOT playing this evening. Also, our star running back had gotten hurt a week or two before, so we didn’t have him either.

But we fought back and ended up winning 27-17. It was a very exciting game and the fourth year in a row that we won. Over 100 years, Clemson has the overall win record, but it has felt good to have bragging rights for another year.

We got our things gathered together and went to sleep. The next day was our last day - waaaahhhhhh !!
