    Artist Point is a firm family favourite with us - we all love it!:lovestruc

    I've heard so many good things about the mushroom soup - I'm not really a 'soup person' but do you still think I would like it?

    I don't want it to end!:sad1:

    AP was our absolute favorite meal last trip! Maybe of all our Disney trips. Cannot wait to go back in August! :cool1:

    Thank you so much for all the great reviews! Very sad that your report is coming to an end! :sad1:

    I might not love peanut butter but I do love Mojitos :thumbsup2

    Great review of Artist Point - another restaurant which I'm sure DH and I will probably get round to trying on one of our adult-only trips (fingers crossed for next August ;))

    That black-raspberry ice-cream sounds delicious - I love raspberry-flavoured stuff :love:

    Thanks for reading along, just a couple more quick reviews to do and then I can start dreaming about the October trip :banana:

    I think the setting of Artist Point makes a real difference, you just feel so relaxed in there and the service was wonderful

    I love soup but DH isn't so keen and rarely orders it, he tried a little of the Mushroom soup and wasn't as wowed as me so you would probably be better trying something else

    Have you ever tried the soups at Boma? they are delicious :cloud9:

    Just a couple more quick reviews to go now :sad2:

    Hi Nicki :goodvibes
    I would imagine Artist Point in the fall would be just about perfect :cloud9:
    If you like to have a drink before dinner you could enjoy your appetisers in the Territory Lounge. Wilderness Lodge is just a lovely resort to relax and spend a while in

    Thanks for joining in :goodvibes
    Hope your meal is just as wonderful in August

    I knew there was a reason I liked you :lmao:

    Hi Linda

    I must admit I totally fell in love with the coconut chicken curry soup at Boma a few years ago - it wasn't really like a soup though - more of a curry.

    As you are coming to the end of this review - when are you next back in the bosom of Disney?

    Hi Linda,

    sorry I have been MIA for a while, but we had a little hickup along the way to our summer trip and it needed to be dealt with.

    But I am now back and LOVED hearing about Jiko! I am VERY excited about it, as we will visit next month! :woohoo:
    I really really hope your DH's dessert is still on the menu - right up my street.

    As for AP - we liked our meal last year but were not so impressed that we will be returning this summer.
    The salmon is devine - like you said, cooked to perfection. I had that same dish and loved it too!

    I didn't know there is an EoS in London. Hm, that trip to London looks more interesting by the minute! ;) :lmao:

    No fun seeing your review coming to an end! Hope you get to go back real soon! :goodvibes

    Love the caption on the Darth Vader cupcake! :lmao:

    That AP salmon looks great, I wish that's what I had ordered when I went.

    Those cupcakes look like a lil piece of heaven :cloud9:

    Artist point sounds great, the pictures were awesome, here I go again starting to second guess my ADR's. When we switched resorts I made a ADR for AP, was going to cancel our Le Cellier but ended up keeping Le Cellier. Oh what to do ? :confused3

    I am another one who is sorry to see your reviews coming to an end, they have been some of the best I have read. :thumbsup2

    I must admit we didn’t have the usual spring in our step as we headed down to Roaring Fork this morning

    Today we were flying home :sad2:

    So, better make this a great breakfast :thumbsup2

    There were two options on the Waffle menu in Roaring Fork that we were yet to try; one of them was the chocolate waffles which I just wasn’t feeling so we decided to split some of the delicious Wilderness Waffles between us

    [​IMG]

    Wilderness Waffles

    We also got an order of the other option we had yet to try

    [​IMG]

    Bananas Foster Waffles

    Oh my word, these were just sensational :cloud9:

    We asked them to hold the bacon on both orders and we had extra whipped cream instead ............ yep the wise and healthy choice :laughing:

    We each ate half and then swopped plates, I started with the Bananas Foster Waffles and it was very, very hard to hand the plate over once I had worked my way through my half but I had to do it in the interest of marital harmony; a flight back to London would not be fun if DH was ignoring me :rolleyes:

    The banana fosters sauce was creamy, delicious and lick the plate good :worship:

    The Wilderness Waffles were just as delicious as the ones we had eaten earlier in our trip so it wasn’t too much of a hardship to finish the rest of the plate

    I was always really impressed with Roaring Fork, everything we ordered here was well prepared and very fresh plus the CMs were always friendly and helpful and if we encountered a long line we always found that popping back 10 minutes later would present a totally different picture

    We filled out mugs for the last time and sat by the pool for a while before we had to face the inevitable ……… it was time to check out :sad1:

    Not to worry, there is still time for one more yummy meal before we were subjected to the in-flight delights of Virgin Atlantic :thumbsup2

    Next Up ……………… Wolfgang Puck Express

    Thanks for your lovely comments :goodvibes
    You can easily drive yourself crazy by second guessing your ADRs all the time :eek:
    I try to stick with my original plans as much as possible .......... there is ALWAYS the next trip :rolleyes1

    I surely could go for some of those waffles this am.

    I am thinking perhaps we can go there on our last day too, not sure if we will have time since our flight is at 11:30 am so ME pickup should be around 8:30am :sad1:
