    I honestly don't think I have ever seen TT open for lunch when I've been at Magic Kingdom - sounds like I am not missing much

    Oh and to answer your question, no, I've never eaten breakfast at WCC - looking forward to meeting you, Em and Barb there in December :)

    I love your reviews! I can only dream to review like you one day! ;) We'll see if I can do it in November!

    You said it Joh! :thumbsup2

    We were conned with the "amazing" description! :cool1: Good thing we've very forgiving people! :lmao:

    Lesson learned I tell ya!

    We will gladly accept the shame of our failure to plan if it prevents one person from eating this rubbish!! ;)

    Hi Jill! No worries! I'm glad you are here! Thanks for joining! Nothing here will be as amazing as your V&A dinner but we'll try to make it interesting!

    I give you credit for being honest my friend!! :eek:

    Perhaps the cashier gal needs to expand her dining horizons. :confused3 I know taste is all relative but for us.... ick!

    Apps coming up shortly.

    Thank you and thanks for joining. If you have a free spot you should definitely add TL!

    That's so funny that you can be bribed with cheese goo! I have had the cheese goo on chili cheese (goo) fries at Cosmic Rays but it was piled with chili so it wasn't so bad. I'm a hypocrite now!

    Welcome and I'm glad that I've been "discovered" makes me practically glow. Or is that the wine? So you're a drinker eh? :lmao: Seriously though, I am glad that you are here and joining. Welcome! :welcome:

    I can say that if the server is having an off night at WCC it WILL be noticeable. They can't fake it there. Breakfast may be more low key so for us it is a great option. AND two words.. MICKEY WAFFLES!

    Hi Rachel! ha ha! Maybe the other items are good at TT. I dunno. :confused3

    I'm mentally going through our food list and I think all is well from here on out.

    I've been to EU and I can honestly say that you win the prize for most disappointing meal of the two. I owe my DH a Biergarten meal after ditching that for EU in 2006... he's still waiting to collect!


    So not only did I have no plan but lousy timing because they happened to be open! Gosh!

    Ahhh I hope you like WCC since I've hyped it up so much.

    Hi there! Thank you for the kind compliments and for joining!! I'm very glad that you are here.

    As for November, Do it! I'll share my personal DR method... take pictures of food, eat, repeat! ;) :lmao:

    Day 2: August 17th - Evening Club Level Appetizers



    After checking into AKL for our 3 night stay, since we were already up on the CL floor and we hadn’t consoled ourselves with any Mickey bars following our lunch we were curious to see what they were setting our starting at 5pm.

    The lounge had filled up with quite a few people and we were busy with some issues we had with checking into our room since their card key machine was down. They did welcome me to AKL with a mimosa so I was completely happy.

    Mimosa

    Once we checked out the CL evening offerings we decided to sample a few things. And by a few, I mean one of everything. Well, not quite but don’t judge me by my 3 plates!

    [​IMG]

    1. Plate in Foreground: Five Counties Cheddar Cheese and assorted pita chips with White Bean Hummus

    2. Plate with the pastry triangles: Spinach & Paneer Cheese Samsoas

    3. Mini plate in back: Chicken Bastilla

    I’m glad to say that I tried two new dishes; the chicken bastilla (Moroccan) and the spinach and paneer cheese samsoas (Indian and Middle Eastern). The bastilla had a phyllo dough cup filled with seasoned chicken that had a savory sweet flavor with an almond topping. The flavor and consistence reminded me of baklava.

    The samsoas were fried puffs of dough that were filled with spinach and paneer cheese which is similar to queso fresco a soft mild cheese.
    They were both very good. The heat lamp had kept them perfectly warm and they were not too soggy.

    The kitchen had a hidden window right where the hot apps were located so every few minutes you would see the window open and a CM replenish the hot apps. I became obsessed with trying to get a photo of said window open with an arm sticking out but it seemed that every time there was someone standing there in my line of sight for the photo. It would have been very rude of me to tell them to step aside so I can squeeze off a photo so I stifled the urge…. Until.. there got it!!

    Brenda, what a very nice spread.

    I love that you caught the woman in the window.

    One of these days, Mark and I will splurge and try CL. I just worry that we'll ALWAYS be eating. Wait, I did that last month when we were there...I swear I never stopped eating (and my pants told me that when I got home).

    Mmm, is there anything better than a welcome mimosa? The CL offerings look lovely, they really seem to offer a nice variety. :thumbsup2 Love that you were able to (photographically) capture the woman behind the wall, LOL.

    Looking forward to your Jiko review! :goodvibes

    First the drink orders, Bloody Mary extra spicy and extra olives for me and a lemonade for Em. Here’s where I learned the word “spicy” is relative. Spicy for me means something completely different than spicy for Pedro the bar tender. (Perhaps a stereotype reference isn’t the best but you KWIM? It’s about frame of reference.) After toasting to a fabulous girl trip I took one sip of my drink and my throat was ON FIRE!! What did they do throw some habanero chili into that puppy?? Water…. I need water…. It certainly wasn’t lacking on spice. I think my eyes were watering a bit and anyone looking on may have thought I was crying over my drink! Lovely picture, no?




    I'm sorry, while I really enjoy the photos and dining reviews, I just find the Pedro comment unnecessary and offensive:sad2: Oh and just an FYI if you ever eat or drink spicy, drink of choice should be milk, not water to put out the fire.

    It was! :thumbsup2

    Kathy that is the danger! I reserve my loose flowy dresses for later in the trip. You know, no waist bands and all.

    The mimosa was a lovely welcome cocktail. They don't offer these at all resorts. At least I asked at YC and they didn't have them.

    I told you I was obsessed with getting a photo of the CM setting out the food. :)

    And for the offense I do apologize. Good judgment failed me there. :flower3: It was a bad frame of reference.

    Thanks for the advice! :)

    Hi Happy! Thanks for joining here as well!

    :rotfl2: So true. So you are a Southern CA gal too!

    Heellloooo mimosa! See just one more reason to stay club level. I just love the theming at this resort.

    We would never judge you Brenda..3..4..5 plates whatever lol the more plates the more food we get to see. So funny about getting pic of the arm out if the kitchen.

    I would so LOVE to stay CL! However just staying at a Deluxe is stretching my budget!! maybe sometime!!

    The hidden window for them to refill the food is awesome!! And good to hear they keep the food nice and fresh!

    Totally loving the report so far!

    BTW, we got on the monorail and sat across from you and Emily on Thursday the 29th. I wanted to say Hi but my 14yo DD said that would be 'totally weird and stalker-ish'.

    Fell behind this week but am all caught up!

    Haven't had breakfast at WCC since the pre Mom & Son report days. It is a never again for dinner for us but maybe breakfast is back in the future.

    And those nachos were pathetic. The cast member should be ashamed for calling them amazing!

    What a great way to be welcomed huh? :laughing: Definitely my favorite resort for the theming - hands down!

    Don't I recall someone last year staying 2+ weeks with CL AND deluxe DP? ;) I'd rather have the 3 trip tickers in my signature than staying deluxe!

    I was quite impressed that they kept such an eye on the food to keep it fresh.

    Oh my gosh!!!! We were going from MK to DHS, I believe, if my photos tell the story of where we were. You would not have been stalkerish at all! I would have loved to say "hi". :) That's actually how so many of our accidental Dis meets happened. I hope you had an awesome trip!

    Thanks for reading and joining here!

    Oh no! That must have burned. OUCH!

    Thank you Tinker! Thank you for joining and for following both. :)

    Hi birthday girl! I've not been anxious to eat any meal other than breakfast there so I'll take your advice and steer clear.

    Perhaps the CM likes cheese goo?? :confused3 I do wonder about their other food though.... maybe a burrito is good.
