    oh so sad to hear that Rumpletinker didn't have a great meal at WPE! That is one of our fav meals and we've never had a bad bite there.

    I don't have any plans for Disneyland coming up, but we will definitely be going to Aulani next year. We will be there in the beginning of June 2014 for 8 nights of Hawaiian Disney paradise! I'm taking my parents with us.... We'll be booking our flights in a couple of months. First class, baby!!! Whoo-hooo!!!

    If Barb still has this thread going then, I will definitely be a live reporter for Aulani! Fingers crossed! :)

    PINEAPPLE PROMENADE
    World Showcase Promenade, Canada side


    [​IMG]

    Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum
    & Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade - non alcoholic


    She said, "Taking a quick break from all the dance and cheer teams here with a Dole Whip with Spiced Rum and a Violet Lemonade. It's definitely been more crowded than we expected. The kids have been mostly well-behaved at least."






    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, Zellwood Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro




    JARDIN DE FIESTAS

    Spring Pancake with Grilled Chicken and Green Apple




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "DSis insisted on trying the German Meatloaf, even though it looked like Spamwich to me. It was better than I thought it would be. We enjoyed the spicy brown mustard and the roll more than the meat, haha."





    [​IMG]

    German Meatloaf Sandwich with Sweet Mustard and Fried Shallots





    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Smoked Beef Brisket with Collard Greens and JalapeƱo Corn Bread




    [​IMG]

    Pulled Pig Slider with Cole Slaw





    [​IMG]

    Rocky Road Brownie Mousse


    "We were divided on which was better at the Smokehouse - I liked the brisket, especially the cornbread, more, and DSis liked the slider more. We were both surprised by the amount of kick the cornbread had. I appreciated the brownie having pecans instead of almonds, like I expected it to have, because I hate almonds."


    "I'd like to note that the Smokehouse is also officially endorsed by The Orchestra, lol. They kept going on about how good the food was during their [Flower Power] concert tonight."





    "My overall personal favorite surprisingly ended up being the Spring Pancake. I loved the spicy sauce, and the apples added interesting flavor and texture. And it was a huge portion! DSis liked the tostada the best. She loved the chipotle mayo, and the crab was plentiful and nice and cool."

    I'll be attending a conference at Disney July 13-18 and would be happy to send in pics if you still need people. We'll be at the Yacht Club and breakfast and lunch is provided so will be mostly dinners and snacks. Was kind of a last minute decision, so ADR at Yachtsman and winging it the other nights (which is so against my Type A plan it and book at the 180 mark personality)!
