right there on the Boardwalk.

The Karmel place is my fav...
There is a couple more pizzas there that I want to try. I will definitely go back, and to have the Arancini again would be heaven. The Karamel place is a MUST on every trip!

They had some great options that you would probably like. We didn't encounter any birds at the Fish place, but we were so starved we ate really quickly and were out of there on our way to our next grazing spot!

Great update. Nice photos.
It should definitely be on your list. Great food!

Thanks for this. This should be alright then. You will probably find me a quivering wreck if we do get to meet up if I have done both ToT and California Screamin.

Yes, they are a Patina Group restaurant. I have always joked that the Patina group is my "favorite chain restaurant". They have locations throughout Southern California including at the Music Center (next to Disney Hall), the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, in the San Fernando Valley, Las Vegas, Costa Mesa and some on the East Coast as well as Naples, Tortilla Jo's, Catal and the Uva Bar, in DLR.

Their chef is very innovative and sure knows how to make pomme frites! I love Pinot Provence in Costa Mesa, though we haven't been there in a long time.

You should be fine. If you ride those two rides, we'll just go have a drink and you'll be all smoothed out again!

So after leaving Via Napoli, we headed around World Showcase, through Germany and the African Outpost. I ended up buying a T-shirt that is so cute! Youíll see it before the TR is over. We headed farther around World showcase and just made it over the bridge before China. Has anyone ever been stopped at this bridge? I didnít even realize that it was there, but it must be how they move the Illumnations stuff out. They close off the path, and I assume it was a drawbridge that opened up, I didnít look back because we were sort of on a mission.

We headed to the Ditch, and already it was evident that my scooter was starting to lag. I barely made it up the scooter hill into Mexico. We looked for an outlet to charge it, but no luck. So we just went inside. It was sort of packed, but we found a table. Sorry these pictures were so blurry. The place was dark.







We order the trio of dips and chips. We thought the salsa was too spicy. I didnít care for the guacamole, but we devoured the queso. Next time weíll get just that.





I got the Blue Margarita



She got the standard Margarita



We both split the Tequila flight





We have been paying for everything with gift cards all trip and they had Fran sign the check each time. Eventually she realized she that the signature was useless and got creative.



After that we started to head back to the hotel via the monorail. She didn't find the Big Fig that she wanted to purchase in the morning. Since my charge was going so low, she left me at the lockers next to a charging plug while she went back to the art store to get the figure she couldnít get at DHS, I think it was Indiana Jones Mickey.

While she bought the figure, I got enough charge to get to the monorail and get back to the room.

I took photos of the ride on the monorail for our friends at home, so that they might grasp the scale of WDW and how much undeveloped land there is in between the resorts and parks.

I like the Tequila Cave. We might need to stop there in Sep/Oct. I'll be comatose when we leave; but that's okay. I can stumble back to the resort.

Tell Fran I want that autograph as well.

And yes, heaps of undeveloped land.

If Fran signing as Luke Skywalker I hope you signed as Princess Leia.

It's always hard to explain how spread out WDW is compared to DL to people in CA.

They had some yummy margaritas as well as tequila flight. That wouldn't be good is you are stumbling out of there!

She went on to sign as some other fine characters, I just didn't get the pictures!

I know Californians don't understand space even though we have a lot of it going on, they just can't comprehend that if you are that "close" you don't build it up.

We like The Ditch too. I wonder how it got that name? La Cava can translate to the cellar in Spanish.

Love the Luke Skywalker sig. Very clever.

Still trying to get caught up but I am up to the MK day, can't wait till my next trip to see the New Fantasyland.

I love all the HM pics! Where is that Mr Toad in the cemetary? I looked for it when I was there last and couldn't find him.

ETA: I just read the post about your Kitty, Sunny passing. I'm so sorry. It's good you were able to keep her going for as long as you did.

We love La Cava also, did you get them to explain the mural to you? It is the history of Agava Tequila, it is really cool, all the servers know it. If you did not get them to do it, try and get it next time you are there.

I think David and I have tried all the different marg's in there at least once, and the Cucumber and blood orange one's have t be my favorite.

They used to have blue crab toastado's on the menu and we would order them everytime, but I think they are gone now?

Whew! Over the last 2.5 days, I have managed to read all 52 pages! I'm pretty sure I need a vacation now as that was a LOT of work

Let's see... things that I wanted to comment on.

I was laughing so hard at the thought of that roast traveling cross country! I have a friend who I swear would do that. I texted his wife who laughed and laughed as she told me about his desire to attempt to bring ice cream, in the car, from Ohio to NY (she wouldn't let him try because ICE CREAM?? )

I am absolutely in LOVE with that Minnie dress. I stopped reading for about an hour as I searched the internet (fruitlessly) for it. Perhaps ebay or etsy...The search continues!

I was shocked at the MK view room - apparently all the pictures that I'd seen were zoomed in like crazy!

Also, I'm now really really REALLY hungry and only the world showcase can fix this - the arancini! the fish and chips! Les Chefs! I could go on for days (and I plan to on my next trip!)

You could take them in there, but I think they would be bored really quickly, they do have a take out window, you can get any of the Margs as a togo item..

Good to know, that's probably what we'll do then. Thanks!

That sounds like a plan.

We only made it to La Cava once and loved our Margarita. I think the Tequila flight would be right up my street. I think I have to plan a future visit. What a pain that our scooter was still giving you trouble.

Scooby. I used to love that show.
All the food for club level is making me hungry.
You had an empty park at Harry Potter. Good for you.
Oh no. I get vertigo so the ride might not be for me.
Wow that is really empty.
It got crowded in 90 minutes but not too bad.
Bubba Gump looks good. There is one here in NYC but have never gone.
The resort is gorgeous.
The dinner at Emerilís looked good.
Okay sorry to say not a fan of rare meat or Kidani. LOL.
Great safari pics.
Awww, cute kitty.
I have never tried the cs at Yak & Yeti, always eaten outside. Maybe next time we will.
Great pics of FOTLK.
Sanaa is one of my favorite restaurants.
The orange side, you are brave.
Loved the living with the land pics.
I have yet to see Remy. :O(
YUM!!! Grey Goose Slushie.
When we walked back from jambo we would cut through one of the paths to the garage and take the elevator up.
The tour looked like fun.
The lobster bites or whatever the name is sounded so good.
Nice pics of the savannah and sunrise on moving day.
We have frozen creamed corn here in the Bronx. Come on by. LOL
The Village Gifts is cute and Gastonís Tavern is good. I love the Lefouís Brew.
Great HM pics.
Poor Mr. Toad.
Lucky you eating at BOG. We never made it there.
POTC is my favorite ride of all time. Neither compares to the Paris version. That is great. WDW is too short.
Yum!! Lapu lapu.
We were disappointed in ĎOhanas the last time.
Love the fog pic.
Nice TOT pics.
We ship everything home on the last day. Bring it to the merchandise area of the resort and have a receipt for everything and they ship it. Makes it so much easier than packing.
That Pirate thing at DHS is horrible. I agree not a do again.
I love taking boats at WDW.
Your meal at Via Napoli looked good.
I have to try that Tequila bar.
I just read it all tonight and it is great so far. Looking forward to reading more.
