    Hoop De Doo sounds like it's a lot of fun, and that dessert looks tasty! I'm just not a huge fan of those comfort foods like fried chicken and ribs, so I'm not sure it's something I'd do any time soon. Your salmon, on the other hand, looked pretty good!

    Those potatoes look delicious! I think I would skip the chicken and the ribs and just gorge myself on those!

    Nothing wrong with ice cream for breakfast - it is Friday after all ;)

    It was such a fun night out and you're right; the shortcake is delicious :cloud9:

    We really enjoyed the food and to be honest I didn't expect to; I just thought it would be a fun show
    Everything we tried was hot, fresh and really well prepared :thumbsup2

    There were some big family groups there and they were having a blast :cool1:
    It's a great place to go if you are celebrating something as you have a chance to get involved in the show

    Morning Joh :goodvibes
    DH demolished the chicken; he tells me it was amazing :thumbsup2

    Go on book one, you know you want to ;)

    The 26th of September will be here before you know it :goodvibes

    Hi Karin
    I insist you treat yourself to an ice cream cookie sandwich - you deserve it :goodvibes

    Let's hope it is as good for you as it was for us; if not tell your husband it was all the fault of a mad English woman :rotfl:

    The salmon was lovely and I think there is a pasta dish as well for vegetarians

    Mmmm, a bucket of potatoes :cloud9:

    You are very welcome, thanks for reading :thumbsup2

    I swear there must be an illegal and addictive substance in them :laughing:

    Wednesday 25th May 2011

    Happy Friday everyone, hope you all have a wonderful weekend :goodvibes

    It was another early start on May 25th as we wanted to be at AK for rope drop

    Before heading out we grabbed a coffee and a Pecan & Cinnamon Roll from Roaring Fork

    [​IMG]

    Cinnamon Roll @ Roaring Fork

    Heavenly :cloud9:

    We didn’t really have any lunch plans today so decided to just see where we ended up when we got hungry

    The lines really weren’t too bad in AK that day so we managed to hit all the biggies several times and after we had used our Safari FPs we headed to Tamu Tamu Refreshments as it was close by and hunger was beginning to strike

    It was really busy in the area immediately surrounding Tamu Tamu and at first we couldn’t find anywhere to sit.

    We headed around the side of Tusker House and the Dawa Bar and found that there were lots of deserted tables so we were soon tucking in to our lunch

    Here’s my selection

    [​IMG]

    Tuna Salad Pita - served with apple slices

    This was really excellent, the Pita bread was lovely and fresh and the Tuna salad mix was perfect. I really enjoyed this lunch :thumbsup2

    And for DH

    [​IMG]

    Cheeseburger Basket - served with chips & Chocolate Mousse

    I had the Chocolate Mousse as well and it was actually really good.

    DH said that the Cheeseburger was ‘OK’ and he really enjoyed the chips and made a nice change to the usual fries

    Just FYI you can select a Milk Shake as your dessert here and they were huge and looked really good :)

    Later on in the afternoon DH said he wanted to try a Corn Dog, he had never had one before (we don’t really get them in England) so he picked one up from the Safari Corn Dog Kiosk

    The CM was having a total nightmare with her cash register and as the line grew longer and her temper grew shorter she said ‘just take it for free’ and then told everyone else behind us that she was closed

    Yay for free food :woohoo:

    [​IMG]

    Insert Caption Of Your Choice Here :rolleyes1

    So what was DH’s verdict on his first ever Corn Dog?

    He loved the first few bites but then found it a ‘bit sickly’ so I don’t think he will be rushing back for another one

    Happy Friday, Linda!

    That Cinnamon and Pecan roll looks sooooo yummy. I am so looking forward to our second stay with NO DDP - I guess I will live off snacks! :rotfl2:

    You know, we never even gave Tamu Tamu a thought, but seeing your tuna salad pita makes me reconsider. That looks just mouthwatering yummy!

    I am with your DH on the corndogs! :rotfl2: Tried one and we both were not huge fans of it. I guess this is something you need to grow up with, like rootbeer - yuck!
    Don't worry you have to grow up with Sauerkraut and meat filled dumplings as well! :laughing:

    That tuna pretty good and I wouldnt normally order something like that out. I just started liking corn dogs last year while pregnant. But from what I've heard the ones at WDW aren't that great, but Disneyland supposedly has good ones.

    I like that the scoop of tuna salad and the two slices of tomato form a sort of hidden Mickey.

    Happy Friday Linda! :yay:

    Another great review! You really are reaching the parts that other reviews don't reach!:lmao:

    I would never have thought of Tamu Tamu (and I consider myself to be somewhat of a Disney food expert.....:rolleyes1) but the food from there looked great! I'm not a huge fan of tuna but even I was drooling at the tuna pitta! (Must be because it's nearly teatime...)

    I've always wanted to try a corn dog too! Well done to your hubby for having a go!

    Hi Karin
    Thanks goodness it's the weekend :thumbsup2
    I actually really like rootbeer and sauerkraut although probably not at the same time :laughing:

    Wow, I admire your staying power, that's an awful lot of my rambling to take in at once :rotfl:
    Lots more to come, stay tuned for Jiko next

    It was just perfect for a light lunch on a very hot day at AK :thumbsup2

    Oh I would love to go to Disneyland one day :love:
    I was working in LA for a week earlier this year but couldn't fit in a visit ... one day I will hopefully

    I am so hungry right now and the tuna pitta (and a margartia) would fit the bill perfectly :goodvibes

    I had a couple of these yummy treats during our stay at WL - just delicious :cloud9:

    I can never find too much I like to eat at AK so this was a great find :)

    Glad you spotted that :thumbsup2 actually there was a very cool hidden Mickey behind Tusker House and the Dawa Bar next to the table where we ate our lunch (thanks to a great CM for pointing it out)

    Happy Friday Shari :goodvibes
    I don't remember finding much in the way of CS at AK that I have enjoyed in the past; DH likes Flame Tree BBQ but there isn't much for me there so Tamu Tamu was a great find
    It's a very small selection on the menu though

    It sure was, the pita was really, really fresh and tasty :)

    Hey Linda, I have to say that the cinnamon roll looks a little dry. Was it? I am not a fan of pecans so I hope Roaring Fork has normal cinnamon rolls too (I can't remember) :confused3

    I am probably alone in that the tuna pita looks awful to me - but I absolutely abhor tuna :sick:

    I've never had a corn dog - I've had cornbread though, is it anything like that?

    That tuna pitta sure looks good!

    Yay on DH getting a free corn dog - it's a shame he didn't enjoy it but at least he did not pay anything for it!
