    We arrived at 11 am at the Pop Century Resort. We were starving. We heard that the food at the food court was good. So, we decided to give it a try. We were not desapointed.

    We ate here twice during our trip. JF loves this place. I think it's a little too loud, but the food is pretty good.

    The crab cakes were delicious. Another great dining experience.

    We did get dessert, but I forgot to take a picture. And I really don't remember what we ate anyway.

    We ate here in 2008, and we just love that place. One of the best quick service restaurant in MK.

    Another great food experience, Thanksgiving style. The only thing we didn't like was the mac 'n cheese. A little too "artificial" tasting. The rest was very good, we loved the turkey gravy. We had never had that before, so we loved that with turkey. The little rolls they served at first were TO DIE FOR. I couldn't stop eating those. :rotfl:

    Tossed Mixed Greens, served with our special Tavern Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

    Roasted turkey breast, carved beef, and smoked pork loin, with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, herb bread stuffing, and Macaroni and Cheese

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments! :)

    Let's move on with the show...

    ABC Commissary was one of the quick service restaurant that we liked the least.

    Me

    [​IMG]

    Cheeseburger - with fries and Strawberry Parfait - no sugar added

    JF

    [​IMG]

    Fried Fish - battered fried fish served with fries and Chocolate Mousse

    My cheeseburger wasn't very good. But, JF did like his fried fish. The only good thing about my meal was the strawberry parfait with no sugar added. That little dessert was delicious. I doubt that we will eat here again this year.

    Wow, we both loved that place. We arrived 25 minutes before our reservation and we were seated right away. The service was really great, our server was super nice and she gladly took pictures of us in the little blue car. Our meals were fantastic. The only downside : JF ordered a side of onion rings instead of fries, and I think he got like 3 onion rings. But, he said they were pretty good.

    We ended up eating at Beaches & Cream around 8 pm as we were in Sea World all day. Let's just say that we were both tired that day, and we were glad that we chose Beaches & Cream as the service was fast, and that's what we needed that day.

    The food was really good, nothing out of the ordinary. But, the desserts were TO DIE FOR!!! :rotfl: I've never had such a big sundae in my life.

    Me

    Turkey Sandwich - Thinly Sliced Deli Roasted Turkey on Multigrain Bun

    [​IMG]

    No Way Jose - A Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge Delight with Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Morsels, Whipped Cream and a Cherry

    JF

    Roast Beef Sub - Grilled Roast Beef with Au Jus and topped with Provolone Cheese, Grilled Onions, and Peppers

    [​IMG]

    Strawberry Shortcake - Slice of Angel Food Cake, Vanilla Ice Cream, Strawberry Topping, Whipped Cream, Rainbow Sprinkles and a Cherry

    You see, I didn't know we could take any dessert we wanted off the menu, so having heard so much about the no way jose sundae, I gave it a try. I just didn't know it was that big!!!:scared1: But, oh, it was heaven on earth I tell ya!!!
