Then skylizard sent us a breakfast update from the Polynesian Resort's...


Kona Cafe



skylizard said, "This morning we had breakfast at the Kona Cafe. We had the Big Kahuna and the Samoan."






Big Kahuna - French toast, Pancakes topped with Pineapple sauce and Macadamia Nut Butter, eggs, home fried potatoes, ham, bacon, and sausage


"The macadamia pineapple pancakes that come with the Big Kahuna were just heavenly!"






The Samoan - poached eggs with Hollandaise served over smoked pulled pork hash






"The Samoan was delicious. The pulled pork hash was perfectly cooked and like nothing I've ever had before. I wish we could get a breakfast like this back at home!"

Then we have this update from Chavaleh.


Gaston's Tavern





She said, "After turning Jack into a pirate we went to meet Gaston and eat at his hang out.
















"The pirate ate most of the roll."












"The pork shank went well with the brew which was exceedingly sweet."

Next in today was a lunch update from Becky (BlovesC).


She said, "Today we decided to stay by the pool for lunch, so Hurricane Hanna's it was!"











"We both got the chicken breast sandwich with fries."










"Inside...four cheese blend and avocado-yum! This was way better than the food at Beaches & Cream...but not as good in atmosphere. Too many flies and fry snatching crows!"



But for dessert, they still went to...


Beaches & Cream





Grilled Banana Bread and Peanut Butter with caramelized bananas, whipped cream, and a scoop of ice cream


Becky said, "I really wanted to try the Peanut Butter and Banana Bread sundae. Disappointing! There's almost no peanut butter."







Classic Banana Split - ripe banana, three scoops of ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry), pineapple, strawberry and marshmallow topping, finished off with hot fudge, butterscotch, toasted almonds, whipped cream and a cherry


"Charlie got himself a banana split. It was huuuuge and I think he liked it more than any No Way Jose we've had! Although that may just be because he didn't have to share."




Becky then said, "And as if that isn't enough sugar for the day, we went back to Epcot JUST for strawberries from China's...


Lotus House





"At least we burned off the calories in the walk to get them."

Next we received another update from Chavaleh & family from their lunch today at Magic Kingdom's...





















She said, "Before I could grab my camera a horde of ravenous children attacked our cheese sticks. This lonely survivor was all that remained and he very quickly met his demise. Standard fried cheese."









"The wee pirate had his usual Mac& Cheese. I'm fairly sure that by the end of this week his blood will be replaced by vivid orange goo."







"The eldest had the Freedom pasta minus tomatoes. She claims that it was a little overcooked but I did not verify."




Freedom Pasta - Fusilli Pasta with Sauteed Chicken, Seasonal Vegetables, and Mushrooms tossed in a Cream Sauce




"Thomas & Isadora both had burgers. Issy's was normal, Thomas's had mushrooms. They both enjoyed the fries."













"I had the Colony salad. I thought the flavors were well balanced ingredient wise but that the dressing had too much oil in it. Probably just an off day."




Colony Salad - Washington apples, sweet pecans and applewood smoked cheddar, dried cranberry Craisins, and grilled chicken tossed with field greens in honey shallot vinaigrette




"Finally we shared an Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake and it was very delicious. Issy nearly licked the plate."








"Because it took them a good while to get our meals out, the server brought us a fastpass ticket. We'll probably use it for Space Mountain tonight when we go back in for dinner."

I've fallen so behind on my Dis board reading, but had to check in to catch up on this thread.

V&A is a must do one day. It always looks so amazing.

Becky and Charlie's sandwiches from Hurricane Hanna's look great! I remember being really excited about Hurricane Hanna's receiving a new menu, and their review has me more excited about eating there (the chicken sandwich and quinoa wrap are calling my name).

From a quick service/snack standpoint, there's never been a better time to stay at the Epcot resorts. Hurricane Hanna's, Boardwalk Bakery, and the nearby Boulangerie in France have all received notable upgrades (with the French bakery even serving breakfast now), the the F&G Marketplaces are convenient from these resorts as well. Kudos to Disney for addressing one of the biggest complaints about the (otherwise wonderful) Epcot resort area!

Agreed! It might not happen for a while (even if we take another trip soon), but reviews like yours have pushed V&A to the top of my long-term list.

Just a few more updates from last night to post this morning, starting with one from Becky (BlovesC).


She and Charlie had dinner last night at...


YACHTSMAN STEAKHOUSE




Yachtsman's Meat Cutting Room










Truffle Olive Martini

"Charlie liked the olives more than the drink itself."






"My Caesar salad. Freakin' huge!"






"Charlie got the Tomatoes and Fried Mozzarella curds, which OMG I could eat a bowl of."







"I chose the NY strip, which was fantastic! But that potato gratin was just meh."







"Charlie chose the Rib Eye. Two thumbs up, but he didn't think the marrow was all that great."




Then for their desserts...










"I chose the Peanut Butter Gianduja Cake! Wow, that salted caramel gelato was amaaaazing!"







"Charlie got boring old Creme Brulee and our server scolded me for mocking his taste. She said, "If it's not broke don't fix it!" Service was incredible."

Next is the final update from StuffedwFluff, who's trip ended yesterday.


She said, "We ate tonight at...


Beaches & Cream


















"I've been waiting to go here for ten years, ever since I first heard about it. We ordered the BBQ Angus Burger and the Reuben."




Bacon Angus Beef Burger with Smoked Bacon, Blue Cheese, Barbecue Sauce, Onion Rings, Lettuce and Tomato on a Fresh-baked bun






Beaches Rachel Sandwich - Griddled Pastrami on Marble Rye with Sauerkraut, Arugula, Swiss and Peppercorn-Russian Dressing


"The BBQ burger was good, it had a very grown up taste because of the bleu cheese. It was okay, just didn't hit the spot. The Reuben was amazing. So good."



And for dessert...










Fudge Mud Slide - A gooey chewy Brownie covered with Hot Fudge, Three Scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream, Oreo Cookies, topped with Whipped Cream and a Cherry


"We debated on the ice creams and decided on the Mudslide. (Robert won the rock, paper, scissors game. ) It was great, but I think I would have wanted some peanut butter in there."



And that's all from StuffedwFluff...
