    Hello All! DH and I started our Saturday at Boma for breakfast! I get one weekend off per month, and of course it landed on a busy holiday--but we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time.

    [​IMG]

    After we spent sometime at AK walking off our breakfast--it was packed!! We then went over to Epcot, which was super busy as well. This was our 3rd time at the F/W festival. I had heard rave reviews of the foam at Desserts and Champagne, so I got the strawberry and DH got the chocolate.

    [​IMG]

    I guess it was "meh" to me. I preferred the strawberry--it tasted just like the Nesquik that I grew up calling "bunny milk". I think maybe it was just too much dairy on a super hot day. After that--the lines were just crazy pants. We didn't stay, and decided to go home and nap for a bit.

    After our nap, we decided not to risk the crowds for our main dinner--so we went to Red Lobster. We skipped dessert and made our way back to Epcot. Of course we were full, so we had a couple drinks. I am not a drinker, but have become very fond of the Caribbean's Bacardi Torched Cherry Frozen Limeade. I also tried South Korea's Chung Ha Soju Fruit Slushy--although I didn't taste much alcohol... this little cup gave me a case of the giggles. ::yes:: It's good... just giving a warning! I also had Hops and Barley's Pumpkin Mousse which was just delish. The lines were a little lighter at night.

    I love not having to eat everything in one day!!

    Was this like frozen chocolate milk? I was very curious about that! It looks like a frosty! Yum!

    Love the latest updates!

    Thanks everyone :)

    The ice cream cookie sandwich looks delish, as does the grouper from FF

    Also, that's the second Kona breakfast review I've read today (thanks emmysmommy) and now my own breakfast doesn't look quite so appealing :(

    Yes, they gave us little dishes to scoop into. That made it a lot less messy! We couldn't finish this - even with 5 people!

    This just in from budafam...


    She said, "Let's try this again. :laughing: I'm hoping it works this time... been having an awful time with the wi-fi at Pop! :worried: This is from 10/3 at Cali Grill dinner. We had a 9:30 reservation but arrived at 8pm and we were seated by 8:15."


    CALIFORNIA GRILL


    Here's what we had:




    [​IMG]

    Spicy Kazan Roll - crab, shrimp, bay scallops, tuna and fireball sauce


    budafam said, "It was my first time having "real" sushi and it was FANTASTIC! I couldn't finish it all so they boxed up what was left for me to take back to the resort with me... yum!"




    [​IMG]

    Oak-fired Filet of Beef with Teriyaki Barbecue
    and served with Cheesy Potato Casserole and Brussel Sprouts



    budafam said, "The filet wasn't really all that great. I did not care for the barbeque sauce on it and the potatoes just tasted plain to me.. like something I would make for a potluck. It didn't thrill me like I was hoping it would."




    [​IMG]

    Pear and Almond Tart - Poached Pears, Lemon Shortbread Crust, and Toasted Almond Ice Cream



    budafam said, Can't remember the name of the dessert... something with pears in a tart and candied pears in it with ice cream. The dessert was okay. It was really big and I was unable to eat half of it. "




    DD ordered:



    [​IMG]

    Kid's Grilled Chicken Breast served on a bed of rice


    budafam said, "DD wasn't too thrilled with the chicken." :worried:




    [​IMG]

    Crisped Rice Sushi Plate


    budafam said, "She also got a piece of cake for her birthday so I had them box up the sushi dessert for her to take with."


    Note from jabead: budafam has sent me many more updates! :cool1: I'm going to wait and post the rest when I get home, as our internet speed is much faster there. So stay tuned for lots, lots more! ::yes::

    And another update from budafam...

    "These are from 10/4. This was our MNSSHP day so I tried to stay light on the ADR's. I originally had TRex booked but decided against it with hardly enough time to get a nap in so we went with Kona Cafe in the morning and then Crystal Palace in the afternoon."



    Kona Cafe Breakfast




    [​IMG]

    Tonga Toast Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with your choice of ham, bacon, or sausage




    [​IMG]

    From the Kid's Menu: Minnie's French Toast with sausage


    budafam said, "Kona Cafe was okay. I wasn't totally thrilled by it."

    For dinner on 10/4, budafam & her DD were at Magic Kingdom and dined at...


    Crystal Palace



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    budafam said, "Crystal Palace was also underwhelming. We had eaten here once before for lunch and this was dinner but not much seemed different. " The food was "okay" but nothing that struck me as amazing. Not somewhere I plan to return to anytime soon."


    "MNSSHP was a complete washout. It was HORRENDOUS trying to walk through Magic Kingdom wearing ponchos. In some places the water seemed to be inches deep. YUCK! We put up with it for a bit and took a break at Pecos Bill where we got french fries & onion rings. Then we ended up standing in line for 2 hours at City Hall to get ourselves replacement tickets for the following night's party. UGH!"

    Then on 10/5, budafam & her DD were at Epcot, where they had lunch at...


    San Angel Inn

    El Mayor premium silver Tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, agave nectar and fresh lime juice, served frozen with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim

    [​IMG]

    Helado de Dulce de Leche - Caramel ice cream



    budafam said, "I really loved the appetizer and the margarita (of course). The entree wasn't the greatest... the meat was kind of tough and it came with avocado in it which I really don't care for (I know, why did I order that margarita then.. :laughing:)
    The ice cream was AMAZING! So good!
    Our service was fantastic here and one of the girls brought DD a stuffed Duffy bear... so sweet!" :goodvibes





    And for DD...




    [​IMG]

    Kid's Grilled Tilapia, Rice, and Green Beans





    [​IMG]

    Churro with Cajeta



    budafam said, "She loved all of it and actually ate most of it! It was quite impressive!" :thumbsup2




    budafam added, "We originally had an ADR for the Spirit of Aloha that night but since our first MNSSHP was a washout, we ended up going to Poly and I cancelled our reservation. They had no problem with us doing that since we had a legitimate excuse that we had to go to the party.
    I'm glad we did because we ended up getting a TON of candy and having lots of fun!"

    Spumoni - layers of ice cream with pistachio nuts and cherries


    budafam said, "I had the zucchini fries for an appetizer which were AWESOME! I ate them all.
    Shrimp scampi for an entree. I didn't care for the asparagus in it. I'm a huge fan of asparagus but it just didn't seem right with the shrimp and the pasta??? :confused3
    I ordered the spumoni for dessert and it was great!"





    And for DD...



    [​IMG]

    Sliced Apples




    [​IMG]

    budafam said, "This was our first time trying Tony's. I was really worried with all of the bad reviews but we went ahead anyways. I can't trust anyone else's opinions. We ended up liking it. Not sure if I would rush back but if there's nothing else available, it's really not all that bad."

    Cinderella's Royal Table


    budafam said, "We were the first people let into the Magic Kingdom on Sunday and DD was first into the castle. She got to be "Honorary Princess of the Day" and got a sticker to show it. This was my 2nd time eating breakfast at the castle but I was excited for the new menu!"
