    This was my favorite meal this trip. I had the Shrimp Louie and it was sooo good. Also in the pic is a Red Trolley Ale from the Karl Strauss beer truck.

    This is the example bowls they have on the counter. I believe in order they are SF Shrimp Louie, Sonoma Chicken & Apple, Newport Nicoise (Tuna) and the Salina Turkey Sandwich. The example salads show a lot of lettuce, but in reality there's not much lettuce. One person in front of me even complained that the chicken salad was not a true salad. They were expecting grilled chicken laying on lettuce, not cubed chicken in a mayonaise based dressing.

    They didn't have any examples of the soup/chilli bowls. But they use the same size bread bowl and you can choose from chilli, clam chowder, corn chowder and brocoli cheese.

    Also, you can ask for the entree to be served in a regular bowl and just get the bread in a bag. I like the sauce/soup to soak in to the bread so I had mine served in the bread, but still asked for a bag for my left over bread.

    Yes it's in DCA. I'll update the post to include the park/hotel that each item is at.
    Wow...you were quick, I updated the post because I realized I posted the same pic twice.

    We almost got one of each skewer. I think the only one we didn't get was the spicy beef which I've already posted a pic of a few pages back.

    Outback Vegetable Skewer - zuchini, mushroom, red onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, red potato, crook neck squash. I prefer my veggies a little more cooked than these were. They veggies were still crunchy.

    Tiger Tails - bread sticks slightly grilled
    [​IMG]


    Safari Skewer - asparagus spears wrapped in bacon - a must do for me on every trip
    [​IMG]


    Bengal Beef Skewer - beef in a tangy Zulu sauce - don't ask me what Zulu sauce is, that's just what they called it, it wasn't exactly barbeque sauce, not terriyaki, but it was good, not spicy at all
    [​IMG]


    Chieftan Chicken Skewer - chicken in a Polynesian sauce, sort of a terriyaki

    Ok, I have come to the conclusion that the folks at the Corn Dog Castle just don't cook the corn dogs as well as the Red Wagon in Disneyland. I know you guys didn't like my hot link corn dog posted earlier. And your not going to be too happy with this one either. It's a regular corn dog, but it's still a bit dark. I really wanted to go back to DL to get a corn dog, but my son didn't want to leave DCA.

    So, here you are, the corn dog

    And the inside after taking a bite so you can see how much corn meal is around the dog

    I'll be going back in May so let me know what else you all would like to see.
    That trip will include a visit to Blue Bayou, so you can look forward to that.
    Also I'll be sure to get a corn dog from the Red Wagon this time so we can all compare the 2 parks style.

    LOL.... Hey that is the exact same rice cooker I have sitting on my counter. I am still deciding on whether I want to fork out 1500, and buy tickets to the Red Carpet showing. I have a trip in planning for next March, but trying to decide if I want to try and do a rushed one for the showing.

    I thought about getting the tickets to the showing, but decided I'll have just as much fun sitting on Main Street all day with my friends. I'll be able to see the movie a week later. Besides, its not like I'd get a seat next to Johnny or Orlando but on Main Street I may get the chance to say hi to them.

    Oh and yeah, we've got that rice cooker too.

    Thank you so much for this. I guess I will get my corn dog from the red cart. I appreciate you taking all these pics. It really was so nice of you to go out of your way. I am so happy to see all those pics!! How was your trip overall? I hope fantastic!!

    Question, your favorite meal. At DCA, that was a louie louie salad?? Why does it look so filled with sauce, what was in it?? What kind of dressing, and all the ingredients? Also those asparagus skewers look good, is the bacon kind of soft in places, or is all of it cooked through well? I am scared of underdone bacon. Thank you so much.

    Thanks for all the pics! I think I will have to ask for a lighter corn dog. I'll wait for them to make it, if I have to! LOL

    Took this description from dlresortinfo.com. The sauce you see is thousand island dressing. The shrimp are mixed in it, and then the pour more over the top. You could ask for it on the side and then there wouldn't be soo much.


    San Francisco Shrimp Louie
    Chilled bay shrimp on a bed of mixed greens with hard-boiled
    egg, tomato wedges, olives and a zesty Louie dressing.


    The bacon on the skewers was a little soft in some places. I suppose you could ask for one cooked a little extra.


    The food thread for WDW helped me so much in planning my trip there. I'd like to help others and since I'm at DL every few months, I take what pictures I can.

    I was debating doing Lilo & Stitch breakfast, but I dunno the pics, and things just arent thrilling looking to me. I have family near DL who have said it was a slightly smaller buffet, with fish, rice, and some other varied items. Heh Where I live they already have rice for breakfast, and I CAN'T DREAM of eating rice for breakfast, or salmon. I am still debating Lilo & Stitch, but it's leaning more towards Storytellers, or just doing Minnie & Friends twice, or one of the others. I am not a big fan of Brother Bear either, and honestly wish they would bring out some other chars along with them.
