Every since Matt tried Earl of Sandwich’s Thai Wrap last month, he’s had me pick one up for him on my Downtown Disney visits to bring home. Since I’ve had a tendency to go on Sundays, this means it will be his lunch the next day. Either the wrap holds up okay for him overnight, or he’s just not as picky as I am (hey, it’s a lunch he doesn’t have to buy or prep!).
But just because Matt has a new standy-by (especially since Cannonballs! left us), doesn’t mean I order the same thing every time. Plus, I wanted something that I knew would hold up well to bring to lunch the next day. This is why I opted to order Earl’s Cobb Salad. This salad combination features Field Greens, Grilled Chicken, Bacon, Cheddar, Roma Tomato, Cucumber, Cranberries & Ranch Dressing.
Tables in Wonderland has announced the date for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Sneak Preview. Held on Sunday, July 12, 2015, the lunch will feature food an beverages from this year’s marketplaces. In its 20th year, “new and exciting offerings” will be introduced. Members should look for a separate email invitation in the next few weeks with information on how to register. We’ll provide you with more details as they become available.

It’s been a good three years since I last visited Paradiso 37. That visit was not particularly a good one, and I was underwhelmed by it enough that I didn’t have any desire to return. Because it had been so long since that visit, I thought it was time to swing by for another try.
What was once called the “Mangled Margarita” is now the P37 Swirl. The P37 Swirl is a combination of their P37 Margarita swirled with their “famous red sangria,” which can be ordered frozen or on the rocks. My drink this visit was a bit different than in the past, and it seemed the sangria that was swirled in wasn’t frozen. If it was, it was very thin. Flavor-wise, it’s about what you can expect from a frozen margarita machine, but I wasn’t looking for anything fancy.
