I love the irony that "Miss Piggy" loves bacon.

Can't wait to read about your trip!

We really enjoyed POR, it is HUGE though. We were in the royal rooms (Oak Manor) close to the pool and main building and the walk was still long to me. But then again I am Miss Piggy, not a huge fan of walking

For the record, I do Zumba, so I'm not a total pig lol

We have Tim Horton's here (Maine) too. I am not a huge fan of their ice coffee as I feel it always melts the ice and waters it down I do like their hot coffee and iced caps though!

We had a great time, but often wished for a Fairy Godmother to come and watch the kids while we just went to the parks for a few hours!

Riverside Mill x2 and Muddy Waters

We landed about 12:30pm and boarded DME for POR. By the time we made it there and checked in it was already 2pm! We decided to grab some lunch at the food court before finding our room.

When we got there we were all starving, and how does a 3yr old Muppet show his hunger? With a tantrum of course! He was very upset because he picked a two top table next to the garbage for us to all sit at, how sweet. I tried to calmly explain that I didn't want to eat my lunch (and first Disney meal!) smelling rotten salad and cheeseburgers. So we walked over to a four top by the window. In his mind that garbage table was the best table in the world and we were just too blind to see it and too mean to let him have his way. So he staged a sit in and gripped the bottom of the table, all the while screaming and crying. That's when the bad mom in me just wanted to walk away and pretend he is someone else's kid But instead I got down on the floor and bribed him with what else? MAC AND CHEESE

So Here It Is....magic tantrum-ending orange pasta



Served with apples and grapes and he also got a 1% Mickey Milk to wash it all down

He dug right in and was QUIET Thankfully the baby coorperated through all the drama and let us eat our lunch in relative peace

Riverside Mill is not unlike the other food courts in Value and Moderate Resorts where you have multiple stations to order from. The only plus side I see to this is the variety of choices it provides. The HUGE negative to me is the fact that I have to stand in multiple lines to get everyone what they want, then also stand in another line to pay the cashier. I had already stood in the "kids" line and brought the mac & cheese back to the table to sufficiently bribe the 3 yr old. I then went back up and really wanted to get a make your own salad, but that line had 15 people in it and was moving slower than the Soarin' Stand By line. Kermit said he wanted a sandwich so I hopped in that line and brought back two for us to share.

Turkey Sandwich on Focaccia with Chipotle Mayo, Provolone Cheese, Lettuce and Tomato


This was pretty good for a turkey sandwich. I would of liked more sauce but it was overall yummy. The hand made chips that came with it were really good though and a nice alternative to fries.

Next up was a Beef & Blue Sandwich on Ciabatta. We got pasta salad on the side for a little something different.



This was pretty good too. We also thought it could of used more sauce and it definetely had too much bread but the meat was well seasoned and juicy. It was cooked about medium well so I was surprised that it was so tender.



Here's a shot of the Beef and Blue with the Pasta Salad shown as well. The pasta salad wasn't that great. The dressing was very lacking in flavor, a theme we discovered for many salads we had during our trip.

We Also got a snack for later. This is one of the few healthy snacks we got for ourselves, you can tell it is early in the trip before we throw all caution to the wind!



Can't really go wrong with carrots & celery with ranch to dip. I am glad Disney offers many healthy options for snacks (ya know fruits, veggies, and CUPCAKES) They were fresh and yummy by the pool later and went nicely with this refreshing "snack" mommy needed after the dining room tantrum.,,,



Miss Piggy decided to pair the healthy carrots & celery with a reduced calorie drink option, the "Skinny" Coconut Mojito from the Muddy Waters Pool Bar. I am usually a beer and shots kinda gal (classy I know) but this was really good! It was just what I needed to start relaxing in the Florida sunshine

Continued in next post....

Riverside Mill x2 and Muddy Waters cont....

After having a great time by the pool (Such an awesome pool area! LOVED the little kids splash pool) We were supposed to head to DTD and eat at T-Rex. We decided we were just too beat to think about lugging the kids there and back. I was really looking forward to riding the boat down the river, and was actually one of the reasons we picked POR for part of our trip. But at this point we knew the kids just wouldn't last. We decided to give the kids a bath and then head back down to the main building to check out Boatwright's. We looked at the menu and just decided we weren't feeling it and didn't feel like shelling out $30 for an entree that we weren't thrilled with. So we headed back to the Riverside Mill. It was about 7:30pm and it was PACKED. The boys grabbed a table while I went to fight the crowds. Again I wanted a salad, and again the line was impossibly long. So I instead waited in the kids line for pizza (Robin had been begging for it since the pool) and then picked one other line to wait in.

Here's the kids pizza meal



I seriously waited in line for fifteen minutes just for this little pizza! Oh well DS really liked it and was happy with his grapes, apples, and milk again.

I then moved over to the grill line and got Kermit a Pulled Pork Sandwich! WHAT THE WHAT?! Miss Piggy, how could you order up your cousin??? Because he was delicious, that's why!



It was served on Texas Toast with coleslaw on top and fries on the side. I picked up some extra BBQ sauce since I learned my lesson from lunch time. Kermit seriously loved this, well of course he did, he loves him some pig

I went with a Char Grilled Cajun Chicken Sandwich


I only got this because I didn't want to wait in another line. It was just a regular chicken sandwich, nothing special but nothing terrible. They had the lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles next to the grill line. Many people walked right by it because it wasn't very well lit. The grill line was also incredibly slow since they grill your food when you order it (there was only one cook working for the first 10 minutes!) I clocked my wait time as 20 minutes. By the time I got through the cash out line and to the table it was 8:15pm! I was surprised Robin hadn't thrown another crazy tantrum, but the staff was actually doing little Mardi Gras activities with the kids to keep them busy

We chowed down quickly so we could get to bed early for our first park day!!!! DHS and MK

Up next Catalina Eddies and the coveted ADR at BOG!!!!
