So glad you posted. I was going to stop writing.
Mexico CS… We got nachos. Maybe the best plate of nachos we ever got at WDW. Usually it a paper bowl of chips with some stuff on top. First 8 chips are loaded and the rest just chips. This was some what layered…chips, stuff, chips, stuff. Still some dry chips here and there, but we were very happy with it. DH and I shared and was full. We saw kids like 10 ish and was wondering how far they would get with their plates. No, I wasn’t going to ask for leftovers. Just curious if half a plate got tossed or if a kid can really eat the whole thing.
Ice cream…we had gotten cones from the crepe kiosk at France before and loved them. Got them one day (swirl please) and was great. Went back another day and after waiting in line for 10 mins, find out no chocolate. Booooo Went to the kiosk by American and got some awful stuff they called ice cream. I think it’s .0000000001% butterfat. It was awful. I couldn’t eat it Not that it was bad like it would make you sick. But when you are expecting a rich, thick, creamy swirl and you get thin ice milk…yuck. That’s like ordering a milkshake and they bring you a glass of water that the milkshake spoon was stirred in.
So I drowned my sorrows in a pretzel. I do like those with the cheese inside.
Captains grill breakfast. First day there we got in about 9:30 am, went over to Captains grills. No ADR, didn’t want to take a chance with planes being late. It was really really busy. Was told 25 -30 min wait. Turned out to be about a 45 -50 min wait. Was getting concerned we’d get seated and the buffet would be close up in 5 mins. But all was well. Was still able to stuff ourselves silly. Food was good. One odd thing. No syrup on the buffet. You have to ask for it. Maybe it was making too much of a mess and too much clean up time.
Trail end. Food choices has dropped. Last yr there was a baked potato bar, baked chicken and pulled pork. None of those this yr. Instead of having one long l shaped line of food, there is now a mirror image set up. Two spots for salads, two spots for chicken, etc. They have one carving station for beef brisket and ham. I think the desserts were a tad better than last yr. Strawberry shortcake was good and that’s the first time I’ve seen that. The soups (chili and tomato basil) were good, but when the pot gets low there must be an automatic shutoff for the warmer. First bowl was great, second bowl (from an almost empty pot) was room temp. Still a great deal as far as disney prices. We were staying at BLT when we went and that was great, a 15 min boat ride. But I don’t think I spend the travel time if I was at another resort.
Cape May dinner…Ask DH. He enjoyed it. It’s ok for me. I get about 6 things twice over and I’m done. Not a seafood, fancy cheese, fancy salad person. Meat, potatoes, string beans is more my style.
Crystal palace. First time for breakfast. Loved it, loved it, loved it. We had omelets made. The breakfast lasagna did not look appealing to me at all. I had the puff french toast which I covered with strawberry sauce. The cheese danish actually taste like cheese danish. So many times, desserts look amazing, but taste like nothing special. So sad I couldn’t stuff more food in. LOL. The server brought me a card and cupcake for my birthday.
Cosmic Rays…good burger, still crazy busy, missed the cheese sauce from the fixing bar.
Electric umbrella…didn’t get food here, just hot chocolate but wanted to mention cashier. Most people were getting food and of course had to wait. Cashier took my order and then about 2 mins later, jumped off her stool, went behind the counter and grabbed two cups for me. So glad I didn’t have to wait for the three orders ahead of me.
But at this point, let me add this…people please please known what you and your family are getting BEFORE you get to cashier. I had to suffer through one family…leettt’sss seeeeeeeeee We’ll have onnnnneeeee chicken nuggets wiiitthhhh , Susie what do you want to drink, there’s milk, juice, soda, water…ok milk…and appples slices…and well make that two chicken nuggets, Tommy what do you want to drink, there’s milk, juice, soda…After all of this teeth pulling, the cashier says “that will be $57.50, please” AT THAT POINT, the father starts looking for a credit card. Did he think it was a magic register that ever 10th customer didn’t have to pay, so he was hoping he was the winner???
