    Day 5: Lunch

    Kona Cafe

    After an action packed morning at the Magic Kingdom, we tried to figure out where we would want to eat lunch in the Magic Kingdom. Nothing really appealed to us at the time, so we decided to head back to the resort and see if we could walk-in at Kona. There wasn't a problem as well the restuarant is rather dead at the lunch hours.

    We started with:
    Pot Stickers - wok-seared duck dumplings with creamy ginger-soy sauce $7.49​

    I enjoyed these a lot! My husband didn't but he isn't a huge duck fan.

    For our main courses, I went with:
    Polynesian Plate Lunch - $14.99
    Traditional Hawaiian favorite served with sticky rice and macaroni salad, featuring your choice of:
    -- Chicken with some sweet sauce.

    I subbed the macaroni salad for more sticky rice. The chicken was nicely cooked. The sauce was on the side of being a bit too sweet for a main course but tasty. I might not order that entree again if we go back for lunch.

    My husband went with:
    Angus Chuck Kahuna Burger - char-grilled served with bacon and your choice of cheddar, swiss or American cheese $11.99

    He enjoyed this. It was eaten in about 3 minutes flat ;)

    For dessert!

    I decided to enjoy my inner child:
    Kona Kone $5.99
    [​IMG]

    This is huge! I couldn't finish it all. Cotton Candy? M&Ms? Ice Cream? You can't make that go wrong.

    My husband went with:
    White Chocolate Cheesecake - Cheesecake with a hint of white chocolate, strawberry coulis, and whipped cream $5.49

    This was well received!

    Cost: 47.42
    Total Cost to Date: 528.78
    Downtown Disney - Goofy's

    After lunch, we headed to DTD to get some last minute shopping done. While there, we decided to get some snacks for the next day's drive home.

    I got some of the Dipped Pretzel Rods - 5.95 & my husband got some Lollipops - $4.95​

    They were great road food!

    Cost: 11.61
    Total Cost to Date: 540.39

    Day 5 - Dinner

    Blue Zoo

    Dinner this evening was at Blue Zoo. As we pulled up to the Dolphin to Valet our car - we waited for 15 minutes and no one showed up. :confused3 So off to the self park lots of the Dolphin which were a bit of a walk to the main building when it was raining & having a hurt ankle.

    We arrived at the podium right at our ADR time & were lead to an empty dining room.

    I looked over the cocktail menu & tried to order the candy one to find out they were out of part of the ingrediants. Thus I went with the signature
    Zooberry $13

    This was a nice cocktail but I'm not sure if I could get it again.

    Mmm yummy breads!

    For our appetizers,

    Low Country Jumbo Shrimp - White Chedder Hominy, Okra, Smoked Bacon Butter - $14​
    [​IMG]

    Cheese. Shrimp. Bacon. Butter. How could there be anything wrong with this dish?

    I probably inhaled it in 2 minutes flat:rotfl:

    My husband was impressed with his appetizer:
    New England Style Clam Chowder...light and brothy w/ salt cured bacon - $8
    [​IMG]

    I think he missed the "light and brothy" part as his complaint was that it tasted like water down chowder and that is just wrong.

    For entrees,
    I went with Simply Fish w/ Warm Crabmeat, Dijon Mustard, Chives - $32​
    [​IMG]

    It was a bass. I think I made the mistake with the fish I ordered. There were 3 fish given as a choice and I decided to get the one I hadn't had before. It was overly fishy & I hate fish with a strong fish taste. Luckily the sauce used covered it well.

    My husband was unadventurous & had
    Beef Tenderloin - $42
    [​IMG]
    He said it was good. Similiar to his steaks at other signature places in Disney.


    We decided to skip dessert as nothing stood out to us & to see if we could get into Kona for just desserts that evening.

    We will probably check out BlueZoo again in a future trip. We weren't overly impressed but enjoyed it none the less. I think it was more on what we ordered than on the restuarant's doing though.

    Meal Cost: $112.49
    Total to Date: $652.88​

    Day 5 - Dessert

    Kona

    When we arrived back at the Polynesian, we were going to try to walk into Kona to just get dessert. However, they were packed! Instead, we asked at the Sushi Bar if we could get desserts togo and it was allowed! :cool1:

    White Chocolate Cheesecake - Cheesecake with a hint of white chocolate, strawberry coulis, and whipped cream $5.49
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Banana-Chocolate Creme Brulee - with a chocolate spiral $5.99[/FONT]

    Both of these were excellent and enjoyed in the comforts of our room.

    Cost: $12.23
    Total: $665.11

    Both of these were a nice hearty breakfast before we got on the road home.
