Wolfgang Puck Express Breakfast 6/15/13

I am a fan of Wolfgang Puck Express. This restaurant has a nice variety of food and is delicious. I highly recommend it as one of the best Downtown Disney Counter Service options.

We decided to try breakfast at WPE. Here is a picture of the outside posted menu.



Aaron and I decided to share the Breakfast Pizza - scrambled eggs, bacon, mozzarella, cheddar cheese and caramelized onions.



This was very good. The crust was chewy and the cheese was creamy. I love scrambled eggs and bacon, so this was perfect for my taste. The kids liked it so much that we should have gotten 2 pizzas to share.

Allison ordered the Chocolate Chip Waffles with Maple syrup and whipped cream. She said it was delicious but when she tasted the breakfast pizza she wanted the pizza more.



She said the Chocolate Chip Waffles were some of the best she has ever had and the chocolate chips were more like dark chocolate chips than milk chocolate chips. She did enjoy it and it was good.

Shawn ordered the Belgian Waffles served with seasonal fresh fruit, maple syrup and whipped cream. He loved these waffles and said these were the best waffles he has ever had.



He said the fruit was fresh and the whipped cream was sweet. The waffle was exceptionally good as well as the syrup.

We loved Wolfgang Puck Express for breakfast and we will return in the future.

Goofy's Candy Company 6/15/13

After Breakfast we decided to head to Goofy's Candy Company for treats.

I was so hot that the kids wanted a frozen coke.



We Love Love frozen cokes, I am sure you will see how much through out this report.



Aaron chose marshmellows with crushed oreos and a milk chocolate drizzle. Allison chose the gingerbread cookie dipped in milk chocolate covered in sprinkles with a dark chocolate drizzle.



We also picked up cherry sour balls and shortbread cookies. We always get these 2 items and have them as snacks during our stay. I just love them.

Love this photo, so unusual

Goods To Go at Old Key West Resort

We went to check out Old Key West Resort. We are DVC members so we have pool hopping to select resorts. Our vacation did not have any blackout restrictions so we took advantage. We also wanted to check out Old Key West for a possible future stay.

While we were there we decided to have lunch at Good's To Go which is Old Key West counter service by the pool.







Check out all those ketchup packets



We decided to get Disney Chicken Breast Nuggets (Warning: DD lives off these there will be many meals of chicken breast nuggets) Nachos with Cheese and Onion Rings.

Allison says the Disney Chicken Breast Nuggets are her favorite. I happen to agree, they are really good for Chicken Breast Nuggets. The Nachos with Cheese was nothing special but the kids like them, so that is what counts. I really loved the onion rings here. They were better than the onion rings at Flame Tree. So good.

It was raining when we were at the pool. They didn't shut the pool down, so we were able to swim in the rain. The kids thought that was cool. We got to eat under an umbrella while it was raining and that was a nice addition to our lunch and the view was beautiful despite the rain.



Here is Allison waiting for her nuggets in the rain at our table.



Here is our view Beautiful!



and the slide the kids loved!

We will be staying at Old Key West in the future

Big Top Treats

We went to Magic Kingdom after our swimming adventure at Old Key West. We had to try Big Top Treats.



Signage!







Display Case Pictures




Shawn and the kids had 2 vanilla cake pops and a red velvet cake pop. They said these were amazing. The cake is dense and chewy and very tasty.




I had chocolate Mickey Head Brownie. This was so good, the ears are pure chocolate and the brownie was again dense and chewy like that cake pop and had a sweet brownie flavor. I hate to get a brownie and it doesn't take like a chocolate brownie or has very little flavor. This brownie did not disappoint.

After our snack we rode Dumbo:








As you can see it didn't stop raining, but we had an awesome time playing in the rain that afternoon.

Pecos Bills Dinner Saturday, June 15, 2013

We enjoyed the Magic Kingdom and decided to have a late dinner at Peco's Bills. After the rain, there was a wonderful cool breeze all evening.





Aaron ordered a Cheeseburger and Fries, Allison ordered a side of fries, 2 root beer slush, a light lemonade and lots of cheese and toppings. I got the Taco Salad.

The Kids enjoyed their meals and didn't complain. My Taco salad was not what I remembered it to be. The shell was not crispy at all the insides were normal, no issue there but I like a crispy taco salad shell. I was so disappointed. The root beer slush were terrible. I think we expected carbonation in them and there was zero carbonation. It was like drinking a flat root bear with ice. We will not get the root beer slush again.



Shawn had the chicken sandwich and chocolate cake, he ordered it plain but received it with all the stuff on it. So he had to take it back up and ask for it plain. It ended up that somehow they were out so he ended up with a plain cheeseburger which we did not photograph. Allison and Shawn shared the chocolate cake and said it tasted as good as always.

Overall, our experience at Pecos Bills was not so good but we will return for the fries and cheese. The Kids love it.

Cape May Breakfast

On Father's Day we checked into the Beach Club Villas and had breakfast at Cape May Café.

We love breakfast at Disney, especially breakfast buffets.



Signage

So at Cape May you can write on the paper table cloth. The Kids and I decided to write our Happy Father's Day note to Shawn on the table.







I really enjoyed the breakfast potatoes, these were very good. I love Disney bacon. I know a lot do not but it is one of my favorites. The breakfast pizza looking thing at the top was so good, it had spinach, cheese, and egg. The fruit was fresh and good. I like that there was a decent variety of fresh fruit.















Bring on the characters:
Goofy



Minnie


Donald


Everything at Cape May was delicious. It is a favorite for our family and we highly recommend it. Our waitress was wonderful and so sweet. The characters are adorable in their beach wear and we were able to spend a good amount of time with them.

Some great food so far. You can't beat Disney chicken nuggets, in my opinion.

Those Mickey cake pops and Mickey head brownie are cute AND tasty - what a great combination

Hurricane Hanna's Lunch

Since it was Father's Day we decided to spend it at Beach Club's Storm Along Bay and Swim the afternoon away.





Even Though we had that huge breakfast a few hours earlier. The kids grew hungry. Hurricane Hanna's Great location.



Aaron got the Cheeseburger and Fries and Allison decided on the kids chicken nuggets. They enjoyed this meal ate it all and went back to swimming.







We had a wonderful afternoon swimming at Storm Along Bay. It was a great Father's Day activity.
