    We have an awesome discount so I am keeping it!! Keeping anything for a week is difficult for me...so 8 months ugh!! :rotfl2:

    Sorry I missed your reply before Nicki, posting from my phone....bah humbug! :rolleyes:

    I met my BFF on the Dis, Janet B, she is a true gift and I will be forever thankful, I also have my "little sis from the Dis" who lives in Staten Island (30 min away from me) You wanna know where we FINALLY met in person...the Poly :beach: There's NOTHING like the DIS family :grouphug:

    :) We ate at Le Cellier, let's say DH refuses to "dress" on vacation...so getting him back to Canada may be easier than Yachtsman...one day...:groom: The kiddos won't be little forever ;)

    Whew! So glad that Starring Rolls truly recognized a snack emergency and opened their doors. Interesting how those cookies just disappear! :rolleyes: But the highlight for me would be the gingerbread cupcake - that looks amazing!

    Glad you all enjoyed Yachtsman! The steaks look awesome and the sides - ahhhhh soooo delish! What a great way to celebrate Mark's special day!

    Lets go right now, I am in the mood for garlic on rolls!

    Its was the best time ever!



    We used TIW and it is totally worth it...bought it in Oct and we used it for 11 days, then the 4 days in Dec and plan on using it again for another 11 days in October...hopefully more over the year too!

    Thank you Joan! I would love to get away in Jan or Feb for a long weekend, hopefully that will come together

    You must try it, the place is fantastic!

    You do meet the most wonderful people on the Dis! I have been fortunate to meet many of them and hope to meet many more! The signatures are not really dressy dress...we were in park attire as were many other diners

    I was so happy they let me in! It was totally worth it, that cupcake was too yummy to pass up! Yachtsman is def my favorite, how can you go wrong with steak?

    Thank you! I wish I was munching on that cupcake right now

    Good morning! While we were eating our dinner at the Yachtsman the kids asked what time breakfast at Kona was the next day .... when we said 7:30 am they both looked at us like :faint: so we told them they didnt have to go, the 4 of us would be ok without them :rotfl2: What seemed like great ideas while we were planning this for 6 months really wore us out! So the kids slept in and we both took cabs from our resorts and arrived at the Poly shortly after 7am. Kona wasnt open yet so I took pictures of the Coffee Bar

    The Poly was super duper quiet that early but by 7:45 it was really picking up, mostly for Ohana breakfast. We were seated at Kona right at 7:30 and Kathy and I both chanted Pressed Pot Pressed Pot Pressed Pot like coffee starved nut cases :rotfl: We all needed the boost so we had 4 pots for the 4 of us and it was wonderful!! I cannot say enough good things about the coffee at Kona...yes it is totally worth the price!

    [​IMG]

    Todd had OJ, Kathy had the lilikoi juice..I think Mark had juice too

    [​IMG]

    Condiments for our meals

    [​IMG]

    I had a customized dish...I just wanted meat, eggs and tomatoes...the waitress said to order the Big Kahuna with just bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and tomato slices. The bacon was to die for, real honest to goodness thick and not too smokey bacon! I loved it but there was so much I had to share it. The sausage was excellent, the eggs were out of this world! Super creamy and tasty. The tomato slices were very good too, I shared with Mark.

    [​IMG]

    Mark had the Big Kahuna the normal way but with the butter and pineapple sauce on the side and he really loved it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kathy had her favorite, french toast and bacon! She loved it, especially the bacon which was super duper good!

    [​IMG]

    And last but not least was Todd, he had what he always does, the TONGA TOAST! He loves this so much and he is a big sweet eater so this is just perfect for him

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We all had the remaining pressed pot coffee to go and I must say Mark and I were a little overly animated...that coffee really perked us up! Kathy even sent Mark to the corner to behave, she gave him a time out and he went! :rotfl: I never laughed so hard! The four of us had a great meal and alot of fun goofing around! As soon as we left Kona the monorail pulled up and we flew out the door! Time to do MK for the day! Kath, post that picture of Todd sleeping on the monorail, its a hoot!

    Yay! We are at MK! First stop, run to the new Fantasyland! Well we didnt run persay, we walked and we stopped for pictures and looked at the decorations on Main Street. We had just a 10 minute wait for the new Little Mermaid ride, which was awesome by the way! I really wanted to try LeFou's Brew so we popped into Gaston's Tavern.

    [​IMG]

    Ok so, I didnt really like it that much. Its cold and slushie like and super duper uper sweet. Like two sips and I was done with it. The foam, ick...I dont like it at all. Todd, my sweet loving man, said the same thing. Maybe it would be better on a very hot day?

    We stopped at the Big Top and they had some special cupcakes since the grand opening of the New Fantasyland was the day before

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    MK was packed this day, I mean just jammed with people...it was crazy. No way were the boys missing out on egg rolls! Mark had one but you know Todd had to have one for each hand!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The plan was to grab lunch and then all of us go back to our resorts for a nap so we could come back and close down MK at midnight. Well there was so much to see and do that we decided to just power through it, have lunch at MK and then tour the monorail resorts and chill out at the bars and then go back to MK. Lunch was at Peco Bills...it was soooo good but very busy.

    Kathy had the BBQ pork sandwich and loved it, the fries were just eh

    [​IMG]

    She also had an order of onion rings and they were delicious! Hot and crispy and not greasy, I had one and would have eaten the entire plate!

    [​IMG]

    Mark had the taco salad with all the fixings

    [​IMG]

    This mess belongs to my husband ;) Pickles, of course...this is Todd we are talking about, tomatoes and fries loaded with cheese.

    [​IMG]

    And a kids burger, he liked it alot

    [​IMG]

    And a taco salad for me, I really enjoy this and I love the toppings bar...could use more meat though. Maybe next time I will ask for double meat?

    [​IMG]

    Finished with lunch we made our way through the sea on people to the monorail...seriously the place was as busy as Xmas day!

    That coffee look so yummy. mmmm I just love Kona coffee! Yes Kathy please do post that picture of Mark. sounds funny!

    The description of the brew sounded icky sweet to me too, so I see that this is confirmed. I was hoping they'd have REAL brew :drinking1

    Love how you spent your day touring and snacking. How long did it take Andy & Des to roll out of bed & catch up?

    Everything was delicious. I know we said we'd only do one breakfast next year; but it will be hard deciding between Kona and Crystal Palace; I want that one character meal, but Kona is sooooooooooooo good.

    Kona is a close second to Boma for breakfast, no scratch that, they are tied for first! You must win that lotto so you can eat at the Yachtsman, it is totally worth it. More food porn to come!

    I really wanted the pumpkin pancakes but they didnt have them any longer. I tried for them in Oct too but alas it wasnt meant to be. I think Mark was sent to the corner many times that weekend :rotfl2:

    Kona coffee is the best! I just stopped at the store tonight to pick up 3 lbs of 100% Kona coffee from Hawaii...normally it is $45 a lb but Marshall's has the same brand for just $17, what a bargain! The kids caught up with us later that morning...you must check out Kathy's TR because she is going to post a photo of me getting very antsy for their arrival!

    I know right? I had way too many of those that trip...my taste buds were in shock!

    I am sipping a cup of Kona right now in my Xmas WDW mug but it isnt the same since you are in the frozen tundra and I am in (yes I am going to rub it in) GORGEOUS FLORIDA!

    Todd agrees with CP for 8am breakfast on our MK day because he wants Mark to dance with Pooh! :lmao: Plus its been eons since we ate there and its time to go back..and its easier to just stay in the park all day...well not all day, we know what happens when we do that dont we? :scared1:

    Great reviews so far! We love Kona for breakfast and I can't wait for my pressed pot in 22 days!

    I know what you mean about the drinks being so sweet. It seems like a lot of stuff at Disney is either extra sweet or extra salty. They don't do so well with moderation on those two flavors :confused3

    Ahhhh Kona Cafe.... I love that place! I don't think I've read a dining review that involved a time-out for misbehaving! Leave it to Mark to be the naughty boy.

    Glad to see that Todd was able to get his egg roll fix - times two! :thumbsup2

    Pecos Bill's certainly looks like it is worthy of a visit for the onion rings alone!

    I love your food reports. Thanks for sharing. Anyways... Can I interrupt this trip for a special advice? We are going to marco island next week (yep, no disney). Do you have any advice on good eats in the area. We want to see Sanibel, Naples, Fort Meyers, etc...
