    We went to several MVMCPs, several P&PP, but this were our first MNSSHPs! WE loved them!! I so hope they start them early again next summer - we want to go there again!! :thumbsup2
    As for the Tiramisu - that was one of the best I ever had at WDW!

    I need to have a look and find some more of those photopass photos as we had several more ghost pics taken - one with the hitchhiking ghosts - hilarious!

    Yes, I agree, Free Disney Food is just the BEST! :rotfl2:

    I am glad you like them - it lets me relive our last vacation! Helps to pass time until the next one! ;)

    It took us a long time to try Tony's too - it is just so convenient before a party!
    We like Mama Melrose, esp. for the Fantasmic package, but we LOVE, LOVE, :love: Tutto Italia!

    Maybe just ONE more try? We had tried to eat there several times, but always dumped the ADR in the end - I guess we will go back, just don't know when.

    Yip, this is coming to an end, day 29 is our last day at WDW, but once I have finished this one I am going to start a pre dining report for our upcoming trip - only 22 more days to go - :scared1: ;)

    We spent them all! :rotfl: I'll let you all know once I have finished my other reviews.

    I am glad I could help you decide on some restaurants! Since you asked - no we have not dined at the Yachtsman Steakhouse YET! I have it on my list of must does during the time when we are on the DxDDP.
    But my next pre dining report is coming up shortly!

    Tony's seems to get very mixed reviews - I guess we were lucky! The food was really nice!
    We are thinking about a cruise on the Disney Dream in 2011 too! :cloud9: and I am trying to figure out IF we might be able to do a west coast - cruise - east coast Disney vacation. Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming ........

    Well, the Austrian Scrooge McDuck, aka me, used up ALL the credits! :lmao: and I even have a few photos to prove it!

    Sounds like a great trip you have planned - AND it looks like you are going to be at WDW the same time in August we will be there! Time to celebrate!! :woohoo:

    Yes, a pre dining report is coming up - I just want to finish this one! I have quite some new restaurants planned - we are both getting so excited about this upcoming trip!!

    Hm, now that sounds interesting - I just love flatbreads - well, maybe we'll got back to Tony's rather sooner than later! :thumbsup2
    Snack credit report is coming up shortly! ;)

    Thanks for reading - we had a blast during this vacation! But how can you not have a fun time - it's DISNEY paired with free food! :rotfl2:

    Tony's looks yummy; and all that candy--oh my (my hips just grew another inch looking at it all). I've loved following your report and can't wait until the next one and a report on CSR too, I hope (and I hope it's good!).

    Hi Kathy! It's so nice to see you here!
    Yes, we enjoyed Tony's! And my pupils enjoyed most of the candy! :lmao: I had to pack it very carefully not to go over the weight limit for our luggage, but my pupils were delighted with the amount of sweets we brought home and really dug into it! Not much left for MY hips! :rotfl2: and not that my hips would have needed any more! :lmao:

    I hope to finish this report over the weekend and then start my new one! We ended up with quite a few reservations and I can't wait to hear what you think about it!
    AND we are so excited about CSR! I bet we will love it there, don't worry! :thumbsup2

    Day 29, Sept 12

    Casey's Corner

    It was time for us to leave our retreat at Old Key West! :scared1: :sad2: So we sadly packed up all our stuff, left most of the luggage with luggage services and headed to the park we always spend our last day at - the Magic Kingdom.
    We arrived there around 10.30 and strolled through the shops, had a few last photopass photos taken in front of the castle and then decided to try one more new eatery - Casey's Corner.

    My first Hot Dog!! And probably my last. I do apologize to all of you that love that kind of food, but my Austrian palate just didn't get along with it! :lmao:
    We shared that limp and soggy bun, which came with a skinless warmish sausage. I tried it "au natural" and I did NOT like it. We put some stuff on it (sorry I forgot what, but I think I can remember pickles, ketchup and some cheese sauce), but it did not improve much.

    The fries were yummy though - fresh and hot and enough salt on them.

    I liked the cute napkins and the cup! These were the first ones we saw, even after the second MNSSHP!

    Next up - Columbia Harbour House

    Now, even though I was thoroughly disappointed in the Hot Dog at the MK, I still think the ones Alan (Renfroe) sells look stunning and yummy. If we ever get close to his place I think we MUST try them! :lmao:
    We love CHH - review coming right up - I am working on it! ;)

    Still Day 29, Sep 12

    Columbia Harbour House

    We have a few "traditions" when we are at WDW. One of them is to dine at California Grill shortly before we have to leave, one other is to spend the last day at the MK, and another one is to have something from the Columbia Harbour House. Now, we had 3 CS credits left, so we decided to share one meal there as well.

    [​IMG]

    We didn't want anything hot, so we decided to get the Anchors Aweigh Sandwich - white tuna with lettuce and tomato on toasted bread. We both love this sandwich, so we really enjoyed it.

    [​IMG]

    It came with Chips.

    [​IMG]

    The big surprise was the Apple Crisp. This is usually served cold but that day it was served warm. Not steaming hot, just nice and warm, which made it so much better than the one we had had on earlier trips.

    So what did we actually cost Disney?
    Columbia Harbour House = $ 15,10
    20 CS credits = $ 375,20 (2 CS credits remain)
    22 TS credits = $ 858,80
    2 snack credits = $ 7,00 (22 snack credits remain)
    all in all = $ 1256,10
    (only accounting for the things covered by the DDP!! Not covering any items purchased OOP)

    Next up - Enchanted Grove - and how we spent our snack credits ;) popcorn::

    Enchanted Grove and how we used up the rest of our snack credits

    After lunch at CHH we spent a little more time at the MK and we could not leave without spending one more snack credit on a Raspberry Lemonade Slush!

    [​IMG]

    This is one of the best drinks I have ever had. Tart and icy cold and it takes me forever to finish one, since my mouth feels frozen after a while! :rotfl2:

    Well, I promised to let you all know what else we spent our snack credits on.
    We had 24 snack credits to start with -
    2 snack credits were spent on Magic Cookie Bars (already told you about)

    [​IMG]

    1 snack credit was spent on a Mickey Ice Cream Cookie bar $ 3

    I love the tuna sandwich at CHH! Yummy.

    Love the snack credits:lmao:

    Forgive my ignorance, but is a jawbreaker a gobstopper?:confused3

    And where do the magic cookie bars come from?:confused3

    I knew I would cause a few :laughing: with my snack credits!

    I had to google gobstoppers - and yes, it is the same as a jawbreaker. Very LARGE and HARD candy! :lmao:
    We use the jawbreakers and lollies as treats for our friends kids. They love them all!

    Magic Cookie Bars are truely yummy! We buy them at the Riverside Mill at Port Orleans Riverside. Don't know if they are sold anywhere else. I always take a few of them home and keep them in an airtight container. They bring back sweet WDW memories when I nibble them at teatime! :love:

    You did a great job with the snack credits! :laughing:
    Those jumbo jawbreakers made my jaws hurt just looking at them. I envied you on the frozen raspberry lemonade! :cloud9:

    Love the lollipops...I never saw Tinkerbell lollipops. I have to get that for my friend kids next trip. I love the tuna sandwich at CCH.

    Karin - I have to tell you....that hot dog looks gross! :scared1: LOL. But try not to judge all hot dogs by that sorry example.

    While I am by no means a huge hot dog fan myself, and most of them give me a very bad feeling in my stomach, there is one hotdog place you might like. If you ever find yourself traveling to the Niagara Falls/Buffalo, New York area, pay a visit to Ted's Hot Dogs. There are several of them around Buffalo (and actually there is one in Tempe, Arizona as well). You won't be sorry!

    And I love how you used your snack credits! :laughing:

    I like CC but I must agree that hot dog doesn't look v appetising.

    I have heard rave reviews about CHH, that sandwich looked pretty good.

    Loving all the snacks, esp the frozen lemonade slushy, really refreshing and yummy :)

    That Mickey Ice Cream bar looks sooooo good, wish I had one now :goodvibes

    Bleh, I am NOT a hot dog eater. That just looked...icky! I am a fan of pigs in a blanket, though-- mini hotdogs wrapped in puff pastry and baked. Those are delish, and you'd probably enjoy that far more than a Casey's dog!
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you guys ended up at WPE again, hahaha.

    I am happy I am not alone on the Hot Dogs! ;) And I am SO with you on the tuna sandwich - great minds, think alike and seem to have the same palate! :rotfl2:

    I love that raspberry lemonade slush! I need to have one every trip! :goodvibes
    And since I am the "Scrooge McDuck" in this family I do not leave any credits behind and our friends kids just love the lollies and jawbreakers.

    We got them all at Goofy's! They have a display on what is a snack credit. They had several different lollies and even some that were 3.95! :scared1:

    Dave, I will definitely try another Hot Dog, just not at Casey's! :rotfl2: And since you mentioned the Hot Dog place in Buffalo, Mary Ellen and Joe ARE from Buffalo, so, another reason to pay them a visit! ;) :lmao:

    No, it is NOT wrong to get excited about the CHH food! That sandwich is just so good and such a difference from the usual park food! Try to get a seat upstairs, it's not as crazy and looking down on Liberty Square, while munching some yummy food makes for a great break!

    CHH :thumbsup2 and the Mickey Ice Cream cookie sandwich is one of my favourites! Less messy than the Mickey bar in the summer heat! ;)

    I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one who wasn't impressed with the Hot Dog! Your pigs in a blanket sound yum - we have something similar here, which I really enjoy, but our sausages are different!
    And WPE is ALWAYS the last meal of the trip, ;) Our vacation would not end on a fun note if I could not have another dose of Wolfi! :rotfl2:

    I heard that the Mickey Bars get really messy, which does not bode well for me :)
