    I really think you would love it!!! You definitely need to try it!!

    Hahahahaha not gonna lie, I've seen that on quite a few reports from the place! Oooh, I love a good sangria! The sangria at Kouzzina is really good, if you go there.

    Thanks for the schedule!! I really would love to see his show one day, I've seen some clips and he seems great! :)

    Hahahaha I'm warning you now, the Boma ones are excellent! I'm sure homemade ones are even better though! I never even CONSIDERED making them at home...hmmm...:scratchin:laughing:

    I debated this too, don't worry! It's kind of falling into a "why not" category for me at this point. I've had pineapple and ham on a pizza before, so I'm thinking this could be along the same lines. This could be the most awesome thing ever...I just can't take that chance of missing it!

    (And if it's gross, I can always pick off the toppings! :thumbsup2)

    (Wingnut is very used to me picking at and poking my food on a pretty much daily basis, this is nothing new :laughing:)

    I did see that Disney does have a Perry costumed character, but I think it's only for rare special events at the moment. Here's a link with info and a video.

    I KNOW, RIGHT???? There is now a dearth of burgers at Sci-Fi, down to one at lunch, zero at dinner. I'm glad I wasn't just imagining this! :laughing:

    Thanks for the info about the chairs!! It's good to know the counter seats are comfy too! I love Beaches and Cream, it's the cutest and most delicious place ever! :laughing:

    Welcome!!! I've heard that about the burger too, but I'm not sure how much of a chance I'm willing to take! :laughing: It's just so weird to me that they don't have it at dinner.

    That stinks that you're allergic to popcorn! I totally get the random allergy thing - a bunch of spices and mango and peanut are mine!

    The goat cheese eggs really are fantastic, I definitely recommend a breakfast at Boma - not only just for those, they do have other great stuff too! (But if you did just go for the eggs, I don't think you'd be the only one! :laughing:)

    My boyfriend refuses to eat key lime stuff out here because 'it's not the same as in Florida.' Or fish - won't eat fish because we're not on the coast anymore. :sad2: And I thought I was picky! Good luck finding key lime juice (though I honestly can't tell the difference, I don't eat enough lime apparently!)

    These pancakes are the most wonderful thing I've ever seen. Pancake stamp/shapes are the best things in the world - I really wanted to get the Star Wars ones from Williams-Sonoma, but then I remembered it was Williams-Sonoma and thus terribly expensive.

    I'm the worst with dining reservations because my dream restaurant is room service! Growing up room service was what people on TV did and thus it is forever associated with some lavish, luxury meal. I'm doubting it'd be that way at Disney but it's still so cool to have food delivered to your room. Otherwise, I'd probably pick the brewery because we've been indoctrinated with the brewery's dominance as a restaurant since moving to Colorado and they have an Arnold Palmer on the menu. Clearly I have a discerning palate!

    I don't know why this didn't show up originally! I then totally forgot what I was going to tell you! :headache:

    These little guys were made special for me so they wouldn't be cooked on the same griddle as the French toast (spice concerns - I had told them I'd had things cooked in the same area before and it wasn't a problem, but the chef insisted she make these for me! :goodvibes).

    I'm not sure if they make a gluten-free pancake batter, but I'm sure that if it's possible, the chef would certainly be willing to try! Doesn't Disney make gluten-free Mickey waffle batter? I wonder if that's at all similar.

    Based on my experiences at Boma, the chefs there are absolutely wonderful, and if they are able to, will try to create something that Naomi-Ruth would be able to enjoy!

    Hahaha hey, there are some things that I'm hesitant to bake, because I know that there's no way they'll come out the way I know and love them (black and white cookies, for one!). I know that the key lime juice shouldn't be too hard to find, but it was just not on the shelves of my supermarket, for some reason! (Nellie and Joe make a good brand, if you do ever want to give it a shot!)

    To be completely honest, if there were two key lime pies put in front of me, one with key lime juice and one with lime juice, I really don't know with absolute certainty that I could pinpoint which was which! But I do try to go for the key lime juice for that accuracy!

    The Star Wars stamps are adorable, aren't they??? Did you see that they now have a whole Cars set? I can't go into that store though. It really is ridiculously expensive there. But it is fun to walk around, if I know I have to force myself to walk out the door empty-handed in the end!

    From what I've seen, room service at Disney is pretty nice! I think they bring a tablecloth and other dining accouterments and make a table in your room all set up. The brewery is fun - it's pretty much standard pub fare with a TON of different beers!

    Wish Wingnut a Happy Birthday, from a stranger who is far too heavily invested in his vacation plans!

    My plan is to definately get some more Disney kitchen ware, I keep wanting it now, especially that Color Fusion line online, but I think I will wait to see stuff in person.

    Mmmm, black and white cookies. Our 'traditional' Valentine's Day treat are red velvet black and whites. Almost as much fun to make as they are to eat! I love baking but sans dishwasher in our apartment and dishwashing is my chore, so mysteriously, there aren't as many fresh baked goods in our house anymore! I'll wait until we visit my boyfriend's family and they give us tons and tons of special Southern food (his sister went to culinary school and is thus in charge of holiday meals. Hurrah for that, says I).

    Williams-Sonoma is just too pretty. I haven't been there for a while because there isn't any in Colorado (I think). We're finally getting a Sur la Table that's pretty close though! Cars is pretty much my least favorite Pixar movie (even counting Bug's Life). Where's the Wall-E stuff?! I demand Mo-themed pancakes!

    We have a similar (cheaper) store in our downtown and I just love to go and look at all the pretty cooking tools that I really have no use for. I am getting better at walking out empty-handed, though - I practice with Target trips. :rotfl:

    Aw, a little table is so cute! I'd have to check for a spy hiding underneath though - I watch too many heist films to not check. :)

    Happy birthday to Wingnut! Love the card :thumbsup2

    He did!!! We actually just finished it last night!!

    (Does that make us sound like big piggies? :laughing: Oh well...we are!)

    You guys are making me want to get more...:rotfl: Right now I only have the red...but there's always room for more dishcloths in my mind! (Especially when they're Mickey-covered!)

    I love my Disney kitchen stuff. Right now I have the measuring cups and spoons (the original ones with the Mickey gloves and shoes), a Mickey colander, a Mickey spaghetti spoon, the dishcloth, the "toothpick glasses" ;), and some assorted sprinkles. I'm sure there's something I've forgotten! :laughing:

    Thank you!!! :goodvibes

    Yay!! I'm glad to hear that! :goodvibes
