Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade can be found at numerous locations on WDW property. They run around $4, and you can find them in some of the parks with the addition of alcohol. Matt happened to order this one from Columbia Harbour House. Having tried a Frozen Bacardi Raspberry Rum Lemonade from Dino Diner in Animal Kingdom before, I knew what he was about to drink.
May is National Hamburger Month! Let’s take a look as some of the places around the World to get a burger. Some may be the standard “Disney burger” with a little dolling up, but some will really surprise you! Take a look at this list and try to decide where you would want to visit to celebrate!
For burgers with a twist:
Bongos Cuban Café’s Frita Cubana Burger
at Downtown Disney
A double patty and cheese Cuban burger made of pork, beef and chorizo served with onions, fresh shoestring potatoes served on a warm bun with plantain chips.
Cookes of Dublin’s Battered Burger
at Downtown Disney
Hand battered beef burger topped with garlic mayonnaise, tomato chutney and mixed greens.
ESPN Club’s The PB & J Burger
at BoardWalk Inn
Topped with jalapeños and bacon, and covered in creamy peanut butter and grape jelly on a toasted butter bun.
One of Matt’s favorite restaurants at Magic Kingdom is Columbia Harbour House, and it had been well over a year since our last visit. With grumbling stomachs while wandering Liberty Square, he suggested we stop in for a quick bite. I thought it would be a great opportunity to check in on some old favorites.
Matt’s favorite has been the Anchors Aweigh Sandwich for some time. The sandwich consists of white tuna with lettuce and tomato on toasted multigrain bun with potato chips.
I know what you’re thinking. This menu item doesn’t seem very special. You can find them pretty much everywhere on property. But as a kid, like countless others, who seemingly pined for the processed junk, they still hold a special place for me. While I don’t recall how they were prepared at WDW when I was say, 10 years old, I have a feeling they’ve changed quite a bit since those days. While I’ve had a few “Buffalo” versions in somewhat recent times, it was time for me to go back to my roots, and revisit the as-close-to-original version in all of its nuggety glory. With fries, of course.
This review of Be Our Guest has been a long time coming, huh? We originally had a dinner reservation a few months ago, but a family emergency arose and we needed to cancel. Since then, we haven’t really been looking for dinner reservations, but still wanted to experience dining in the restaurant to some extent. (If you would like to see photos of the restaurant, click here.) We headed over early one morning to get in line to be among some of the first guests into the restaurant.
As many of you may have seen around the web, the ordering process during the quick service lunch is a bit different. There are some cast members taking orders like standard quick service restaurants, but there are also kiosks where you can self order via touchscreen. We ordered from a kiosk and touched out “Magic Rose” to the station so the cast member delivering the food would know where to bring it. We sat in the library, where the dancing Belle and Beast are the focal point of the room. I would have loved to have sat in the West Wing, but since I would be taking pictures, the lighting would not have been conducive.
We knew we needed to try the soups, so we ordered both the Potato Leek and the French Onion. Matt and I are both fans of each of these soups in general, so having them on the menu had us both in a little bit of heaven. Now how would the soups stack up to our particular tastes for these soups?
