    There's a lobster roll at Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom but it is AWFUL! I ordered one on our last trip and couldn't finish it. I couldn't taste one bit of lobster in it... all I could taste was mayo. It was LOADED. F&W has the best lobster roll you'll find on property for sure.

    Oh and please tell me I am not the only one now subscribed to an obscene amount of DRs because of this thread?! :rotfl:

    Alice & Snow were at Epcot last night and had dinner at...


    LE CELLIER



    To start, bread...


    [​IMG]




    And soup!!!


    [​IMG]

    Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup - made with Moosehead Beer and Bacon



    Alice said, "I dream of this soup. Yes, it's a bit salty, but you dip that pretzel bread in there and it's like a tiny food party in your mouth." :cool1:





    [​IMG]

    Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon - 8 oz. Canadian AAA Beef Tenderloin with wild mushroom risotto, white truffle butter sauce and micro chervil




    [​IMG]

    Description of Chicken Entree from online menu dated Sept. 2012: Roasted Free-range Chicken - with marble potatoes, braised artichokes, spicy chicken sausage and roasted shallot butter


    Note from jabead: It looks like they may have changed this up just a bit, with the green beans? :confused3


    Alice said, "I got the filet, and Snow had the chicken. We both really enjoyed our food here.
    Portion sizes were good, everything was cooked perfectly."



    And now for dessert...




    [​IMG]

    Maple Crème Brûlée




    [​IMG]

    Trio of Chocolate
    Chocolate “Nanaimo” Bar,
    Chocolate Sorbet, and
    Chocolate Lava Cake




    Alice said, "I have always felt that dessert was lacking here but I was pleased with the offerings now. I had the creme brûlée and Snow had the trio of chocolate. Mine was quite good. The sugar on top was perfectly torched, and the maple wasn't super sweet. Snow said hers was excellent, although she wasn't fond of the gelato. But she doesn't like chocolate ice cream. :laughing: I tried it and thought it was really good."

    [​IMG]


    I asked Lori if she was having one of these for breakfast.

    Lori said, "Ha, no too rich for me this early! I just like to admire them." :laughing:

    Alice & Snow were at the Polynesian Resort this morning to have breakfast at...


    Kona Cafe



    "Lilikoi juice for me and the all natural lemonade for Snow."


    [​IMG]



    Alice said, "Both were really good. Too bad after they were placed on our table and our orders taken, we didn't see our server again until he tossed our check on the table while walking by (grrr) I've had better service in a McDonald's."




    "Snow had tonga toast and I had the pineapple-macadamia nut npancakes."



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Alice said, "I love these pancakes. I almost ate two!! And my bacon was perfectly crispy. Snow said the tonga toast was really good and VERY filling, but she cleaned her plate." :laughing:

    "So, food was good, service was horrendous!" :crazy2:

    Alice & Snow were at Magic Kingdom to have dinner at...



    Cinderella's Royal Table




    Alice said, "So after running through the typhoon of water, we arrived safely at CRT for dinner."
    (Heard there was a big downpour there today. :worried:)




    Menu pics...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Alice said, "To start we both had the salad, which I enjoyed but I don't think Snow did, because she left most of hers." ;)

    No Picture



    "For our main, Snow had the pasta with no mushrooms (note the vast amount of mushrooms in the photo :laughing:)."


    [​IMG]

    Grilled Chicken Pasta
    Grilled Chicken Breast, Artichokes, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Spinach, and Crimini Mushrooms tossed with Pappardelle Pasta and a Light Cream Sauce, garnished with Prosciutto "Bacon".



    "After meticulously picking out said mushrooms, Snow declared that her dish was divine."




    "I had the pork. Unfortunately my pork was dry, the Swiss chard was VERY salty aka inedible and the sweet potato was super sweet. My plate was cleared virtually untouched, which I guess just means snacks later?" :(

    No picture


    And for dessert...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Chef's Dessert Trio

    Alice said, "For dessert, Snow had the sampler. She liked everything, but said the cake was extremely rich and that she liked the cheesecake the best. Also, as an FYI the sorbet is not on the sampler, it is the cheesecake, the flourless chocolate cake and a small serving of the mousse."





    [​IMG]

    Pumpkin Cheesecake topped with candied pecans and a drizzle of cranberry sauce



    "I had a full serving cheesecake and it was amazing. And I ate the whole thing ." :laughing:
