    Lol, I do remember drinking a lot. But I think it was good, the atmosphere food and booze all good.

    The ribs were good, the only other place I remember having as good as that was a restaurant in Pensacola. It was a place back behind the Cordova mall back in the 80's, I can't remember the name of that restaurant.

    Both of these were at the Liberty Tree Tavern. Both were very good, not just nostalgia.
    Fried White Cheddar Curds were served with the "Fried Cheese" appetizer.
    Butter Griddled Pound Cake!

    Bonfamilles! Port Orleans - before it became POFQ - was my first WDW resort, and it was so lovely having a nice little table service place right there for breakfast. Didn’t they have breakfast skillets? I definitely had the French toast at least once.

    So did we!

    I stayed at the Golf Resort too! 1975. My mother said she loved that PCs more so then the Poly!

    My son too with his allergies. He was able to eat them too. He isn’t fond of the fruit bars now.

    Sunday Brunch on top of the CR.

    Make your own dole whip at the Poly!

    Similar to someone on the first page, I remember the Millennial Celebration dessert. We had ours at Rose and Crown, so it was slightly different. I think it was a dark chocolate Spaceship Earth with white chocolate mousse. So good! I also miss the little frozen strawberry fruit bars. When we went for the first time it was the beginning of June, and those were such a refreshing snack to help beat the summer heat! We found them when we came home and had a little taste of our trip, but I haven't seen them in a long time. Of course, I forgot about them and haven't looked, so maybe I'll check next time I'm at the grocery store!

    Beaver tails in Canada, the chocolate chip cookies at Norway that had a chocolate. Disc in the middle with a picture my kids loved them. Also everything from the MK bakery especially the cinnamon rolls. It was great to sit there and take a break.

    Loaded BLT Waffle Fries at Golden Oak Outpost. They were only around for a VERY limited time, but they were so delicious.

    I know we can get McDonalds anywhere, anytime, but for some reason the McDonalds fries from the cart in Frontierland always tasted so much better. They were always hot and fresh, and because we were in Disney, they were calorie free.

    When Liberty Tree Tavern was a character meal. Colonial Minnie, Goofy, etc. were neat and fit the place really well.

    Character breakfast at Empress Lilly in the old Disney village. I think it was the first character breakfast. I’m pretty sure I went in around 85-86.

    I’ve been going to WDW since the 70s so there are lots of things that aren’t there anymore. The Tangaroa Terrace at Poly. The Adventureland Veranda at MK. There used to be a make your own pizza thing at Fort Wilderness that I loved. Reasonably healthy snack options at Wonders of Life. The meatballs at Le Cellier when it was cafeteria style. I’m sure I could think of lots of others.

    Any chance it was actually behind University Mall instead of Cordova? If it's the place I'm thinking of it's a radio station now - I can't remember what the restaurant was called, either, but we loved it.

    It was the mall over by N. Davis Ave. The restaurant was on the backside of the mall. If I'm not mistaken there was a theater on that side of the mall as well. This restaurant was a 2 story building, I wish I could remember the name of that place. It was open in the 80's.
