    Let's see, we left off at Via Napoli and now we have another update from that popular Italian restaurant.
    This one is from Debra (debrapagliasotti).





    VIA NAPOLI



    [​IMG]

    Calamari Fritti - corn-crusted rings served with spicy tomato sauce


    Debra said, "I had calamari, which was delicious and crispy. Entree was prosciutto e melone pizza. This was delish! Lots of prosciutto and fresh cantelope."





    Note from jabead: I didn't receive a pic of the pizza from Debra, but I just happen to have a pic of this particular pizza from my Nov. 2010 trip.:thumbsup2

    And then another update from Debra, this one from her lunch yesterday at...


    Liberty Tree Tavern




    [​IMG]

    The Liberty Boys BLT & Fresh Fruit
    Slow-cooked Pork, fresh Greens, and Tomatoes on House-made Bread with Caramelized Shallots, and Mushroom-Mayonnaise Spread




    Debra said, "I wasn't blown away by this. The bread was good, but the meat was overly salty. Fruit was fresh and flavorful."




    And then for dessert, Debra had...


    [​IMG]

    Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce



    Debra said, "Oh goodness delish!! One of my fave desserts ever!" :thumbsup2




    And then Debra sent this snack pic from the new Fantasyland's Big Top area...


    [​IMG]

    Mickey Pants Sugar Cookie


    Debra said, "The little boys loved this."

    Next up are Debra's updates from today, starting with breakfast at...


    Kona Cafe




    Here is what Debra had...


    [​IMG]

    Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with ham


    Debra said, "I had the wonderful Tonga Toast with ham. This was delish, but our server was awful." :sad2:




    And then Debra had lunch at Downtown Disney's...


    T-REX



    [​IMG]

    T-Rexadillas
    with chicken, peppers, green onions, monterey jack and cheddar cheeses grilled in flour tortillas
    and served with pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole



    Debra said, "These were good, but nothing special."





    [​IMG]

    Pork-asaurus Sandwich & Waffle Fries
    smoked pulled pork simmered in BBQ sauce, served on a toasted bun with an onion ring and coleslaw




    Debra said, "This had a good flavor, but I wouldn't run and get this again. Waffle fries subbed for chips. Gave these to little boys.
    Did not try coleslaw either."





    And a bonus pic of the interior of the restaurant...

    Mixed greens with a honey-lime dressing




    [​IMG]

    & Pork fried dumplings






    [​IMG]

    Lo Mein & Broccoli





    dcx3 said, "This dinner was new for us. The food was hot and fresh and came as quickly as you wanted it! The consensus was the pork and chicken were a bit dry. The shrimp was delicious but having to peel it slowed my boys down. The steak was delicious The potstickers may have won out as most enjoyed. Overall a great meal we would do again." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]

    'Ohana bread pudding served a la mode with Bananas and Caramel Sauce


    dcx3 said, "I take it back! This gets top marks and potstickers a close second." ;)

    "Kettle corn and sour gummy worms for our last snack credits from the Ink & Paint Gift Shop in Animation Hall."



    Kristin added, "We had such a wonderful time. :thumbsup2
    My favorites:
    Appetizer - Coral Reef crispy fried shrimp. Perfectly made.
    Entree- Brown Derby Filet... We were selected to test trial FP+, so I changed my Fantasmic package to Saturday and HBD was the only one open. I was hesitant, but we really enjoyed our meal.
    Dessert- Boma African Fool salad. We had very good desserts but this is the one I enjoy the most and it was made especially for me."
