Next was cindymindy's breakfast update from Animal Kingdom's...






"We started today at Animal Kingdom. Non food related, we got there an hour early for a non EMH day and they ended up opening the park 30 minutes early! Hello pixie dust! We rode Expedition Everest twice and rode the safari all before the 9:00 a.m. opening time! We just grabbed a quick oatmeal breakfast at Pizzafari."






"Bats!"













Oatmeal with apples, golden raisins, cranberries and brown sugar.






Oatmeal with apples.


"We really enjoy the oatmeal on Disney property. It might be steel cut oats, but we aren't sure."

And then last cindymindy sent an update from their lunch yesterday at Animal Kingdom's...






"We had lunch at one of our favorites, Yak and Yeti."




"We lucked out and got an AMAZING table, look at this view!"








"And what would lunch for us be without a show! We were able to see a little of the Flights of Wonder show next door!"





"Ask for the table upstairs in the far right corner."





"I really love the theming of this restaurant. They really paid a lot of attention to detail, and there is something to see around each corner!"





































Now on to the food, starting with menu pics...

















"We actually got the same appetizers and entrees. We got the ahi tuna to start."



Seared Ahi Tuna - chilled, sesame-encrusted ahi tuna, wasabi aioli, and sweet chili slaw

"The tuna was delicious, but I didn't much care for the Asian slaw. Just personal preference."





"For our entree we got the Kobe beef burger with sautéed mushrooms and scallions. Y'all, this is one hard core burger!"











"It is so juicy and tender! I think it's the only burger worth having at Disney! I could only eat half, but Robby took one for the team and ate all of his!"



"We were stuffed, but wanted just a taste of dessert. I got the sorbet trio of raspberry with coconut shavings, lemon and mango."






"Robby got the chocolate cake. It was very rich!"

Next in yesterday was a dinner update from dutchdisneyfamily.


She said, "We had planned to head to Wolfgang Puck Express but like the other two times we wanted to head there, storms decided to threaten. So we ate at POR again."


Riverside Mill





"I got the Royal Chicken Sandwich, which was actually pretty good. DH got the Bacon Cheeseburger and kids got Make your Own Pasta with Chicken and broccoli."







And for their desserts, they chose...




"Red velvet cake, carrot cake, strawberry cheesecake. We also had a chocolate chip cookie not pictured."

Yogurt





They are staying next door to the Boardwalk at the Swan and sent this bonus pic of the view from their room...





"Not food but nice enough view."

Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by cindymindy.

Cindy and Robby had dinner last night at the Yacht Club's...


Yachtsman Steakhouse









"I started the night with something new, New England Steamer."




New England Steamer with House-made Chorizo, Summer Ale, Lemon, Garlic and Parsley


"This southern gal had never had one before, so what better place than Disney to try new dishes! It had a great spicy flavor!"






"Robby had the lobster bisque."




Lobster Bisque with Maine Lobster, Creme Fraiche, Preserved Lemon, and Fines Herbes


"He liked that it had more seafood flavor than cream."





"For our entree, we got the same dish, Prime New York strip steak. We learned Yachtsman is the only restaurant on property with its own in house butcher, and this cut came highly recommended."




12-oz. Prime New York Strip Steak with Gruyere Potato Gratin and Peppercorn-Brandy Sauce


"Everything about this dish was perfection. This is easily the best steak I have eaten on property. The potato gratin has a lovely gruyere cheese flavor explosion that is to die for!"





"For Robby's dessert, he sampled the Yachtsman sundae."



"He was quite pleased with his selection!"




"I ordered the sorbet."





"This was better than most of the sorbet selections I have tried, mainly because of the flavors, raspberry, pineapple and passion fruit."




"Overall, the food here was impeccable. Like I said before, this was the best steak we have had on property. The restaurant itself left little impression on us. This is a slower service restaurant as well, so make sure to budget your time."

Thanks for doing this Barb! Keeping up with it has to be a tough job, but when my phone was just being plain difficult it doesn't make the job easier. My phone decided which pictures it wanted to send apparently! About the hair at Columbia Harbour House, I was mostly done with my meal when I discovered it. I brought it to the manager's attention. They offered me something else but I was pretty full by this point. Then in my last meal at POR I found a hair in the house made chips that came with the sandwich! I didn't even bother messing with it because we had to catch the DME. My husband keeps wondering why it's always me that this happens to. Seriously, it's everywhere, not just Disney. I think it's because I pay attention to what I eat.

Overall the food on this trip was very good! There are a few places will have to return. Cape May, Be Our Guest, Tusker House, Biergarten. We liked Mama Melrose, but not enough to try it again for awhile.
