Signing on...this looks like it's gonna be fun! I just LOVE how DS was clinging to the garbage-can-table leg!

You and Kermit made some adorable little muppets, btw....so the next time Robin/Animal decides that the table right-next to the men's bathroom is the best table in the world, I think you should sit there. In fact, move the table INTO the bathroom if you really want to make him happy.

You know that if I sent DH to the lines though, he would come back with something completely different then what I asked for and I would be Once I sent him to the grocery store when I was pregnant for Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Milk, he came back with BEEF JERKY. He said he couldn't find Cinnamon Toast Crunch (in the grocery store...) and he remembered I really wanted steak the other day.....

Thank You! I've learned that trying to reason with a 3 yr old gets you no where, except to the bar later that evening

Catalina Eddie's

Our First park day, the "park commando" Miss Piggy was leaking out (just a little) and so we made pre-rope drop at DHS and had a very full morning. We managed to ride TSM twice, see Voyage of the Little Mermaid, see Disney Jr. LIVE!, meet Lightning McQueen & Mater, and do the Animation Class all by 11am. After all that we had FPs for ToT and RnR and wanted to eat somewhere close to those rides. Since Robin takes 45 minutes to eat 1/2 a hot dog, we figured neither one of us would lose too much patience if we got to scream our heads off a little in between his bites We decided an early lunch was then in order on Sunset Blvd.

In case there's someone out there that is not familiar with these eateries, there are a few food stands that make up the Sunset Blvd area. They include Toluca Turkey Leg Co (guess what they sell), Rosie's All American Cafe (Cheeseburgers/Chicken Nuggets), Fairfax Fare (Gourmet Hotdogs/Ribs/Rotisserie Chicken), Anaheim Produce (Fruits/Veggies/giant pickles) Hollywood Scoops (ice cream) & Catalina Eddie's (Ceaser Salad, Pizza). The seating is mostly covered, but is outside in the elements.
I kind of wanted to try one of the hot dogs but decided I would #1 probably want Casey's later on in the trip and #2 I was only waiting in ONE line today. Since Kermit requested a Chicken Ceaser Salad Catalina Eddie's won out.

Here's the salad he wanted


It was just ok, although I asked for the dressing on the side and they obviously disregarded that request. I didn't feel like waiting for a new one either, which Im sure they would have made if I had asked. We ended up sharing this and both of us thought the other got all the chicken because we both only had 2 small pieces in our half. They mix the chicken in the lettuce, instead of putting a nice grilled breast on top, I think they try to get away with less meat this way.

I also got the Hot Italian Deli Sandwich with a side of chips

This was also just ok. Lots of bread again, although the bread was pretty good and toasty. The cheese was nice and melty and it did come out still warm.

For Robin we got him the Uncrustables Meal


He loves PB & J and he ate about half of it. He scarfed down the carrot sticks & dip (they have ranch at the condiment station here, score!) and the cookie/milk combo of course. They also gave me a kids applesauce since I was wearing my birthday button (gee thanks, where's my CUPCAKE) but it was a nice gesture and we saved it for a snack for later.

The heat was catching up to us though from eating outside. Once we both got back from our rides, we decided to go back to the room and take a break instead of sticking around for the 11:45am Beauty and the Beast Show.

Besides, I wanted to be well rested when I met the Beast!

Coming up...BOG for dinner

That sandwich looks really nice. I love toasted sandwiches (which probably explains why EoS is one of my favourite places at Disney). What was the filling in it?

Looking forward ot reading about BOG

Can you believe I have yet to have EoS???? Which never make is to DtD anymore...My mouth always waters looking at the pics!

The hot Italian at Catalina Eddie's wasn't really that Italian to me...It was Ham, Turkey, and provolone...it also had some Ceaser Dressing on it. It was good, but not really all that Italian

A Culinary Caberet!

And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a
chair as the dining room proudly presents -
your dinner!


I was soooooooooooo very excited to finally see New Fantasyland and was overjoyed to score a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest for 6pm on our first full Disney Park Day

We arrived at Magic Kingdom after our break at the hotel and walked right into New Fantasyland. I know it's not food porn but I really liked the pic I got of the entrance...

We went past ETWB and saw the wait was 90 minutes Guess we will be doing that one another time....We checked into the Castle and I had Kermit go back and get Ariel FPs because I just HAD to ride that one the first night

We checked in right at 6pm and waited on the bridge. I requested the main dining room and they said they would try their best to seat us there. Robin LOVED checking out the gargoyles on the bridge and kept talking about meeting Beast. He also got some of his "animal" energy out by running back and forth across the bridge. Kermit and I just stood on either side and let him run and run and run and run. I swear if I could have that much fun running, I wouldn't be Miss Piggy size
We only waited about 10 minutes and entered the Castle. It is so pretty and detailed. There were a lot of archways, which I always love. Check out the archway into the ballroom!

There was also marble everywhere, mosaics, and rich fabrics. Very regal and romantic. The ambiance is just magical to me
The Maitre D had Robin hold a candle stick and lead us to our table. He was overjoyed to have a special job

The lighting was low with lots of candlelight on the tables and in the chandeliers. I think this really adds to the romantic vibe in this room. But for a 3yr old, the candle on the table (although it was electric) becomes an instant toy. We wrestled it out of his stubborn hands and told him the Beast needed an extra light for his table The table settings were also very lovely, the napkins were little roses and so cute

But they were even cuter on the baby Muppet's head!


Here's a shot of our view of the ballroom, we weren't right next to the window but we had a nice view of the whole room and could see the snow falling.



And the beautiful ceilings!

We also were kind of close to a 2 top of ladies who were celebrating a birthday. I think it was a woman and her mother, they were Southern and really sweet. The mother was about 70 and kept making faces at the baby which he happily made back at her. They both loved every minute! They actually tapped me on the shoulder to say hello a few days later at the MK. I just love meeting other nice Disney Fans when I'm in the World

Our server came and we noticed she was from Maine too! She was wicked excited to talk with us She told us her Mom still lived there but she hadn't been back for 10 yrs. We told her about the 36" of snow we got on Robin's birthday, when Winter Storm Nemo visited us and she said she wouldn't be back for at least another 10!

Coming up, the FOOD!

BOG Cont...

Our server took our drink order, Kermit was boring and had a Diet Coke. Robin and I, however, knew we had to indulge! I was of course going to order my first alcoholic beverage in the MK I decided on the Kronenbourg since I like lighter beers.

It was light and refreshing, but no buzz factor at all.

Robin got his first ever CHOCOLATE MILK! which he of course LOVED

Not sure if it was this or the cupcake to follow, but he Robin definetely had his sugar buzz going later on
We also were given some yummy rolls. They dont look that exciting but they were warm and crusty and the butter was perfectly salted. They disappeared fast

I was the only one to order an appetizer and I chose the Garden Salad with Champagne Vinnagrette.

It was a basic salad with a refreshing and tangy dressing. This was one of the better dressings I tried this trip. I just wanted something healthy to start with (so I didn't feel THAT guilty with the rest of my choices) and this hit the spot.

For our entress Kermit ordered

Grilled Strip Steak - with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites.
He absolutely loved this. We have had steak all over WDW including Le Cellier and California Grill, and this was right up there with them. The steak was cooked perfectly to medium, how Kermit likes it, and the butter on top made the steak totally delectable. I know because I had a few bites of course! The pomme frites with herb mayo and green beans were also yummy.

I ordered

Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops - with seasonal vegetables served in puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce

It wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was really yummy. I guess I thought the sauce would be a white sauce, but it was more of a thickened broth. I don't remember seeing any lobster meat either, but there was plenty of shrimp and scallops. The veggies consisted of mushrooms, carrots, & spinach, they were cooked well and added some nice flavor and contrast to the rich sauce. The overall portion inside the pastry was actually less than I expected but it filled me up since I had the salad. The pastry was really buttery and flaky and YUMMYYYYYYYYY I soaked up the sauce with it as much as I could

Robin had

Mickey Shaped Turkey Meatloaf with Zuchinni & Broccoli. Of course we gave the kid some fries, no way could we get away with having those on the table and not hear about it! He ate all the meatloaf and fries, then we bribed him with a cupcake so he would eat most of the green stuff

For dessert we all shared

Lemon Meringue Cupcake

Originally Kermit said he wanted to get the chocolate one for himself, but then he said he was too full. I also thought I was full, until I tried a bite of this cupcake. OH MY GOD YUM. I have heard mixed feelings on the boards about the cupcakes, but I have to say I loved it. I love lemon desserts and this had some yummy lemon filling inside the moist cake. The toasty and gooey meringue added some fun to the top. I could of eaten it myself but Robin was not letting me get away with it!



I often read people have trouble with the cupcake wrappers. I had no trouble whatsoever. I just looked for the little tab on the side where the paper met, pulled that and the wrapper around it pulled right off. That left the bottom paper to keep the cupcake in tact.

Our server noticed it was my Birthday so she brought me


The Grey Stuff!
This was a nice little finishing touch of mousse. I've heard it's cookies and cream flavored, and that is probably the closest thing I could tell it tasted like. The flavor isn't very prounounced, but I liked it that way after such a heavy meal.

During dinner, our gracious host came out to say hello!
Robin was STARSTRUCK! Beast is one of his favorites, and when he saw him his little eyes lit up. He was so excited when we told him he would get to meet him. Also, you can see the lady we chatted with at the next table while we were here, if you are reading Hi Again!

WARNING:
The food portion of our journey is now concluded. The following story may make you lose your appetite, but it's too funny not to share.




My dear muppet of a son, Robin, informed us he had to use the potty before we went to meet the Beast. Kermit took him while I waited in the lobby with the baby and chatted up several hosts and hostesses. As I was mid conversation with a lovely hostess, Robin came running out of the bathroom and yelled at the top of his lungs....
I POOPED IN THE BEASTS' POTTY!!!!!!! I POOPED IN THE BEASTS' POTTY!!!!!!
The hostess laughed hysterically and told him the Beast would be proud.

Sooooooooooooo guess what Robin decided to share with the Beast at our meet and greet??? Beast even gave him a high five! It was too cute :lmao
:

Up Next....Breakfast at Chef Mickey's
