Sunday May 22nd 2011 It took no time at all to drive back to the Wilderness Lodge from Port Canaveral We planned to have a relaxing day at the resort as Magic Kingdom had EMHs until 3am and we wanted to make the most of it After unpacking from the Cruise we headed down to the pool for a swim and I headed over to Sturdy Branches Health Club for a Massage and then met DH for lunch at: DH headed over to the grill area and I headed over to the sandwich and salad counter Everything is made fresh to order so if you time it wrong you can face a lengthy wait but if it ever looked too busy in there we would simply pop back later Here is my lunch (well not all of it is my lunch, DH's is in the picture as well ) Tuna Salad Sandwich - with marinated cucumber salad I love this sandwich I first had this for lunch in 2010 when we were touring around the resorts to decide where to stay on this trip and I enjoyed it just as much as I did back then It’s a very simple tuna sandwich but is wonderfully fresh and the mayo/tuna ratio is just right – a very important factor to a tuna sandwich lover You can chose to have homemade chips instead of the cucumber salad if you prefer DH opted for this: 1/3 lb. Angus Bacon Cheeseburger - with French Fries It didn't last long so I am sure he enjoyed it For our dessert we decided to get two items that we would be enjoy and split them OK, I’m not actually sure what this is called but I think it might be the legendary ‘Magic Cookie Bar’ I have heard them mentioned on other DIS dining reviews Whatever it’s called its heaven on a plate It’s packed full of yummy, chewy goodness and seems to be a mix of oats, chocolate chips, coconut and caramel It is very, very sweet so it was a good idea to split one but we both agreed it was our best Roaring Fork’s treat so far Sugar Cookie We ate this back in the room later that day and although it was good it didn’t hold a candle to the Magic Cookie Bar Later that day we headed down to the WL boat dock and made the short and pleasant journey over to MK The lines weren’t too bad and we had a lovely afternoon touring the park We happened to be walking past ‘The Lunching Pad’ when I remembered there was a particular snack I wanted to try so I redeemed one of my credits for this baby Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel DH hates cream cheese and isn’t a big fan of Pretzels so I told myself I would only eat half ………… yeah right………….one bite was enough to tell me that I would be chowing down on the whole thing Yep, I am greedy but it was delicious, what a great use of a snack credit! So, feeling slightly guilty about the calories I had just consumed, we continued our touring at a slightly faster pace so that I could build up my appetite for tonight’s main event Wishes Dessert Party There was a fairly long line when we headed over to the Tomorrowland Terrace to check in but it moved very quickly The CM at the podium took our name, checked us off the list and gave us both a green wrist-band so that we could come and go as we pleased At this point you get a long speech about the Wishes Dessert Party being a standing event and that people may stand at the railing in front of your table and that you were not allowed to move the chairs or tables closer to the railing I got the impression that people were getting upset about having to stand during the fireworks and had not surprisingly thought that everyone would sit at their designated table for the entire show I knew in advance that this wouldn’t be the case (thanks to other DIS reviews) so I totally understand why the CMs want you to be aware Regardless of what time your ADR is for or when you check in, your table is pre-assigned and we scored a wonderful one, right on the front row directly underneath Tinkerbell's flight path As soon as we had been shown to our table we wasted no time in hitting the buffet! I grabbed a coffee and DH a coke and we filled our plates My first plate The stand out for me was the chocolate dipped strawberries, they were HUGE and delicious (I headed back for many more of these) I didn’t really care for the Key Lime Pie, it didn’t have much flavour and only the slightest hint of lime The Vanilla Cupcake was lovely and very light The fruit was excellent and very fresh, the pineapple was particularlty good My second plate – Chocolate Dipped Strawberry, Rice Crispy Treat & Mango Shooter First prize goes to the Mango Shooter which was wonderful! DHs First Plate He is a much bigger fan of fruit tarts than I am so he said these were his favourite, the cannelloni wasn't great (I agree, it was very dry) but he really enjoyed everything else DHs Second Plate Following this plate DH went back for more chocolate dipped strawberries, fruit and a brownie, I think he got another of the vanilla cupcakes as he really enjoyed the first one but I don't seem to have a picture Overall we were both really impressed with the Wishes Dessert Party and the food was plentiful and regularly re-plenished; as you get close to show time they do start to run out of the more popular items so grab your faves first As soon as people started to head to the railing we took the few short steps from our table to watch the show It was very cool to see Tinkerbell up close and she blew a kiss when she was directly above our heads Just as an FYI, there is a Photopass Photographer at the Terrace so you can get some great Castle shots whilst you are there Pumped full of sugar we headed back into the park knowing that we had five whole hours ahead of us The park really cleared out after the final Main Street Electrical Parade of the night and hitting the rides without any lines was a delight Before heading back to the boat dock we met this guy ……….. It was 2.30 in the morning Coming Up Next ……………. More Waffle About Waffles!
