    Pitiful that they haven't fixed or replaced the cap machine :headache:
    I'll be glad to eat the zebra domes for you ;)
    Is it just me, or are the signs for the sugar cookies & chock chip cookies backwards? :laughing:

    Wow!!!!!! :yay: Chocolate & Rasberry, how do I love thee :love: Light is good, but I wouldn't have been insulted if it was really rich and decadent :laughing:

    Those are soooo cute! I'd almost consider adding sugar to my coffee for those :goodvibes

    Love those pretzel rods-Yum! Just wondering is there a long wait to have them made? As great as they look- I am thinking there is probably a pretty good line?? thanks

    I love your Fulton's review! You actually have me convinced that we have to give it another try. We used to love it there, but the last two times we went, which was about 4 years ago on the last visit...we had poor experiences. The food and service was not like it used to be. But now, I am going to give it another try, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it!

    You're killing me with all this food, it all looks so yummy! I'm glad I got to try the school bread in August it was delicious, the new one sounds pretty sweet. I'm glad you had such a nice birthday and the trip sounds wonderful! Looking forward to more temptations! Linda :)

    Wow! While that looks really good, I can't believe that there's only 1 tbl of crab meat to 1.5lbs of cream cheese! Could you taste the crab at all?

    If I made this at home, I'd add more crab. :)

    btw: loving the review and the pics!

    You were so dead on when you said this place was wonderful! Thank you so much for recommending it!

    All this food is making me too full! Luckily we are walking alot so hopefully I will not gain when we go home!

    Wondering where you were at! Have no fears the pink thing is on my list for this trip!

    Thanks for reading, sorry that you had to cancel your trip but this will give you more time to plan another one!

    That mai tai was one of the best I have ever had!

    We are still changing our plans around, it is driving me nuts! We plan on staying late at Epcot that night too, we should hit the Joy of Tea for a drink! Have a safe trip!

    Tonys review is coming up. The lounge is saving us so much time and money, what a fabulous thing!

    Hope you love it as much as we did! The menu online is totally different then the one they had last night. Our server said they change it daily but you can request anything and usually they can whip it up for you.

    Waited about 10-15 minutes but the place was very busy.

    Hope you try it again, you will love it!

    No way! That would expain why there were $54 instead of $52. Either way DH loved them!

    I am full from eating all these snacks!

    Thanks for reading! We should be eating a new schoolbread tomorrow.

    The dip had more of an onion flavor with a slight hint of crab, I would have loved alot more crabbiness in it :thumbsup2

    Wow, it looks like you had a great dinner at Fulton's. I'm so loving the pic of the crab claws.:) Thanks for posting the recipe for the crab dip. I am going to try that one with some extra crab in it of course. :thumbsup2

    This morning was a breakfast in the lounge day. On our last long trip we did alot of TS breakfasts and were so full that we did not snack or eat CS lunches at all so on this trip I decided to ease up on TS breakfasts and with the CL lounge available to us we did not starve!

    The lounge was super quiet this morning, we were the only ones up there which is nice. The staff is calling us by name, super friendly people. The cap machine was still broken and that really ticked me off. I was really looking forward to a cappuccino every morning cuz I cannot stand that fake coffee and so far I only had it one day. So again I had plain Evian water. The juice is just way too sweet for me, DH loved it tho and he drank the regular coffee.

    So basically this was the same exact breakfast we had yesterday. It was just enough because we were planning on a nice lunch at Tony's so I did not want to get too full.

    We were on our way to MK, this was the longest bus wait we have had so far, about 20 minutes.

    MK was awesome today! The longest wait was 10 minutes and that was for Space Mountain and Splash Mountain. Everything else was walk on, no waiting. The weather was gorgeous, the sun was out and there was zero crowds! As soon as we entered the park the smell of popcorn hit us, so we just had to have some. The little popcorn is just a buck less then the bucket so we had to get the bucket!

    [​IMG]

    I dont know when they started selling SmartWater but I am so happy that I have a choice over that garbage Disani crap...that stuff is horrid! For a dollar more I can be happy. In Epcot they have Evian and that is a treat for me too!

    We pushed our lunch at Tonys back to 1:30 and we were seated right away on the outside so we had a great view of Main Street and the weather was perfect! Right next to us was Pinocchio posing with guests....I wanted to take a picture but didnt because he was always with other people!

    Our waiter was as friendly as Lurch and as tall as him too! He got the drinks wrong not once but twice, brought DH diet coke instead of regular and then when he asked for a refill it was diet again PLUS he put the ice tea in front of DH and the coke in front of me.....and we had to ask for refills which is something that irks DH.

    Here is the menu for lunch at Tonys

    DH decided on the tomato basil mozzarella salad. This was outstanding. The onions, basil, tomatoes and cheese covered in a balsamic dressing....wow it was so good and lucky me he shared! The bread stick that came with it was gross, dry and tasteless....one bite was one bite too many!

    [​IMG]

    DH ordered the veggie calzone. DH asked Lurch what was in it and he did not know so we had to wait on him to check it out. Turns out there were mushrooms, peppers, onions and eggplant and mozzarella cheese. DH LOVED this. It was pretty darn tasty and I wish I ordered this too. It was amazing, the dough, the filling, all of it was so delicious.

    I ordered the meatball sub. It was ok. The sauce was too sweet for me, the meatballs were good but who the heck puts carmelized onions on a meatball sub? The bread was terrible, just to darn dry. The side salad that came with it was awesome! Lots of yummy greens, grape tomatoes, feta cheese and an italian dressing. I wish I ordered the BLT panini but oh well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We decided to share a dessert, the lemon curd walnut white cake. BLECH. This was so darn dry it was hard to choke down. BUT they did bring me a birthday treat which was so good. It was vanilla gelato with chocolate sauce, walnuts and dark chocolate pieces. We both loved it!

    We really enjoyed our lazy lunch at Tony's and will go back in a heartbeat. We are going to try dinner in January when we bring our nieces.

    Our plan was to go to Kona tonight, after all DH made me re-arrange all my plans and drop Cali Grill for it. We headed back to the AKL around 4, MK was starting to get packed for the MNSSHP tonight so it was a good time to skedaddle.

    We made a pit stop at the pool bar and I had a yummy Passionfruit Mojito. DH had a Tusker beer....ok so we had 2 of each but whose counting when you are sitting at a pool bar chillin out??

    Whoops I forgot to take a pic of the beer from the pool bar but I have one from the lounge.

    We chilled for a bit and at then lost track of time and decided to cancel Kona. I said are you sure? He said yeah thats ok. I said, you made me move all my stuff around for Kona do you realize that? He said yeah, let me get you another drink. :laughing:

    I must have had that I'm gonna get you sucka look in my eye so he bribed me with booze. Smart boy.

    So we mosied inside to the indoor lounge and I had one of those yummy drinks I had a Boma but minus the cracked glass!

    This drink is amazing and everyone was asking my what was making my drink turn colors!

    We took my drink up to the CL lounge and DH had another Tusker beer. I also grabbed a glass or Rose and an ice tea. Dont ask me why I needed so much fluids but dang they were good!

    [​IMG]

    The lounge was setting up for the 5-7 dinner/beer/wine crowd and there were 2 other couples and a few families there. I was able to snag some great pictures for you while they were setting up.

    The butternut squash soup was to die for. So rich and creamy and wonderful. DH and I each had a bowl

    [​IMG]

    The chicken was super tender and had a nice spice to it. The bean pastries were my favorite!

    [​IMG]

    DH loved all the cheese and olives. My fav were the dips and crackers and such.....so good!

    [​IMG]

    We did not intend on making the lounge our dinner meal tonight, we were going to go to Mara but there was enough food to fill us up and make us happy kids. We were going to go back to the lounge for coffee but guess what? The cap machine is still broken!

    Tomorrow we are going to Boma for breakfast and then off to the BWI for the second half of our trip. Then F&W for lunch and 50's PT for dinner.....at least that is what is on my schedule but who knows what DH is going to do to it!

    We ended up making a meal out of the CL offerings at WL in Aug when we were rained in by Tropical Storm Fay. Only 2 more days until I'm "home"!! :banana: :banana:

    Great reviews!
    I was LMAO when I looked at the Tony's menu. My sister and I went there years ago for lunch. She didn't like anything on the menu, so asked if they could make a chicken Caesar salad for her (they had reg. Caesar salad on the menu at the time, but not w/chicken). They said no problem. The Caesar salad alone was about 10 bucks. When we got the bill, they charged $20.99 for the chicken Caesar salad! I said, that's what you get for ordering off menu!
    Glad to see they have started to offer it as a chix Caesar salad now, as a more affordable option!

    Have fun at F&W today!

    Glad to hear you enjoyed Tony's Town Square. DH is very picky with his Italian food (he's Italian, grew up in Italy where his family has owned restaurants) so we've avoided Tony's due to the horrible reviews. But lunch looks pretty good. I'd like that veggie calzone! :thumbsup2 (based on your review, I've convinced him to try Tutto Italia, I'm hoping he likes it! I'm dying to try that baked pasta dish you had there!)

    Let us know if you get a chance to have coffee at one of the recommended "good" coffee places. From the article, it says these places actually BREW the coffee, it's not from a Nescafe machine.

    Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, Liberty Square (espresso only!!)

    Epcot
    Kiosk in front of Universe of Energy, Future World East

    Just curious from you post, is this a place it is appropriate to take children? We would love to try this and are thinking of booking our next vacation at AK.

    oh, and just want to say I am so glad I found this report. I read one of your reports in the past and loved it.

    Happy Late Birthday!! Sound like you had a great day.
