    50's Prime Time Cafe

    "DS and DH both got malts as their drink and I got a mega berry smoothie. They were all really good."




    [​IMG]

    "DD really had hard time this trip eating. She is very picky but they were nice enough to do a veggie platter with a salad for her. She got corn, green beans and a garden salad. She loved it!! The only one that got dessert was my DH. He got the dad's sundae but no picture of it, sorry!"

    I completely over look this place everytime we're in EPCOT. But that chicken salad looks like we might have to stop for a snack.

    Now for our First Update of the Day, sent to us by nicole0992.


    This is from their dinner last night at...




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]






    [​IMG]





    They started their dinner with...


    [​IMG]

    Beer Battered Onion Rings





    [​IMG]

    Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken (all white meat) served with mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and green beans


    "I chose the fried chicken and was able to get all white meat as well as green beans in place of the collard greens. This was so good. Finger lickin' good. I loved everything."





    [​IMG]

    Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes and green beans


    "My oldest daughter also had the chicken but was served 3 pieces since she didn't switch to white meat only. She also ordered her potatoes with no gravy."





    [​IMG]

    Spaghetti and "Meatballs" - Multi-grain spaghetti and vegetarian meatballs with Dad's Marinara Sauce


    "My youngest didn't know what to get. She finally decided on the spaghetti with vegetarian meatballs. Bad choice for her. It was loaded with mushrooms and lots of chunky tomato sauce. She also didn't like the taste or texture of the meatballs. I tasted it and it was fine if you are vegetarian and like this sort of dish but there are much better choices here. Sauce was on par with Tony's Town Square."




    And for dessert...



    [​IMG]

    Dad's Brownie Sundae - Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream, Hot Fudge, and Caramel topping


    "The brownie sundae was delicious! Served a la mode with vanilla cream. The girls cleaned the plate!"


    "Since my daughter just picked at her dish, Cousin Cooper wasn't having none of this moving food around to get dessert! ;) So we were served our brownie sundae and she was served her plate of spaghetti and meatballs with whipped cream, m & m's, and sprinkles. It was hysterical!" :lmao:

    nicole's lunch yesterday was at Downtown Disney's...



    Wolfgang Puck Express



    Menu pics...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with peas, bacon and parmesan


    "I had the cavatappi. This is so delicious! The corkscrew shaped pasta was perfectly cooked and served with Alfredo sauce that's not too heavy. The peas are crisp and fresh, not mushy at all. The bacon crumbles provided a nice crunch to the dish. The chicken is julienned and was great as well."




    [​IMG]

    Half Rotisserie Chicken with garlic butter, rosemary and mashed potatoes


    "Oldest daughter had the chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. She loved it. The chicken was cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. The mashed potatoes were so creamy and definitely real potatoes. These were topped with a light gravy and fresh chopped chives."




    [​IMG]

    Margherita Pizza with fresh mozzarella, torn basil, and fresh tomatoes


    "My younger daughter chose the Margherita pizza. It was so yummy. The tomatoes, cheese and fresh basil were all top quality. Crust was crispy and cooked just right."




    And for their desserts...



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    "We had creme brulee, vanilla bean cheesecake, and a chocolate chip brownie for desserts. All were great but the creme brulee was the winner. Sorry no pic of the cheesecake. My daughter dug in before I had a chance to snap a pic."

    "My daughter had the veggie pizza and a side Caesar salad."





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "We tried desserts. "Cheesecake in a glass" was the name of the cheesecake. Weird jelly type-stuff on top that had a citrus taste. Two bites and in the bin it went."





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "Also tried the chocolate mousse. This was better but still only ate a few bites. Too rich for me."

    Spaghetti w/ all the sprinkles & whip cream...how funny, but totally gross to think about for real :rotfl2:

    And I agree about the cheesecake in a cup "goo" -- very odd taste.

    Glad we are getting lots of updates coming in again ;)

    I'm so glad this thread is getting more updates. :thumbsup2

    We are leaving Monday and I have finally stopped messing with our ADRs and think I have our final line up.

    On our last two trips in 2010/2011 we did dxdp with a character breakfast every morning and either a character dinner or something kid friendly like Sci fi for dinner. This trip is going to be totally different. NO CHARACTER MEALS AND NO BUFFETS:yay:

    Mon
    T-rex lunch
    Hopefully Ghiradelli for dessert

    Tues
    Garden View Tea
    (Hoping to add a TS dinner but don't now what our plans our for that evening. Plan on calling the Disney hotline and playing dinner roulette)

    Wed
    Sanaa dinner

    Thurs
    Captain's Grill Lunch
    BOG dinner

    Fri
    GFC breakfast
    'Ohana dinner

    Sat
    Il Mulino dinner

    Sun
    Race Retreat for Princess Half Marathon
    Via Napoli lunch (if I am still standing after the half)

    Mon- home:sad2:

    I also want to try snacking around the monorail resorts since we are doing a split stay with AKL/BLt but no idea if that will happen. There will also be tons of snacks and cs meals.:thumbsup2
