Welcome to those of you joining me from Mouse on the Mind and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.
This month, the Magical Blogorail GREEN loop is talking about our Top Disney Foods. Randy and I share a love of quick-service goodies at Walt Disney World; so we’ve decided to collaborate on this post. But, rather than focus on all the greasy, quick-service sandwiches that we can eat, we’re going to give you our top snack, top quick-service sandwich, and top table service meal instead. We don’t want anyone getting hardening of the arteries by reading our post. So, here goes . . .
This one is a no-brainer for me! I didn’t even let Randy chime in on the voting. If I were only allowed to pick one snack to eat during my Disney trip, it would – without a doubt – be a Dole Whip Float. Pineapple all the way, baby!
I had been reading about this heavenly creation all over the internet, but hadn’t actually tried it ’til our trip in January of 2009 (picture at right). We had some cold days on that trip; and it wasn’t ’til our last day on property that it warmed up and I finally got a chance to try it. One taste and I was hooked!
Now, we don’t make a trip to Walt Disney World without me enjoying at least one Dole Whip Float. The soft-serve is good; but there’s something extra special about the addition of the pineapple juice to it. While my husband might prefer the orange version, I’m a die-hard pineapple girl.
If you haven’t tried one yet, please make plans to do so on your next trip. Promise me, ok?
Quick Service Sandwich
Awhile back, Randy posted – right here at Your Highway in the Sky – about this amazing sandwich that he enjoys at Captain Cook’s in the Polynesian Resort. I read that post and saw the picture he posted (shown at right, with the pork nachos) and I knew that I had to add this restaurant – and this particular sandwich – to my must-do list for our next trip.
The Hawaiian Style Chicken Sandwich is like eating a bite of Polynesian Heaven. Randy described it as “greasy pineapple goodness” and “tasty, full of sweet flavor, and incredibly messy”. He’s right. But, it’s so much more. Chicken, cheese, bacon, pineapple “salsa”, a delicious bun. My only regret is that I split this one with my daughter.
Table Service Meal
For years, I had heard hype about Le Cellier in the Canada Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. I’m not sure why, but we’ve never done much table service dining back there (with the exception of the princess breakfast at Akershus). Hindsight tells me that is really stupid, because World Showcase is my favorite part of Walt Disney World. I guess I’ve always been so busy taking in all the sites that I haven’t taken time to think much about the food. Go figure!
The kids and I made plans to try Le Cellier last September. Honestly, we couldn’t resist the peer pressure – a bunch of our friends were dining there, so we decided to check it out for ourselves. I decided on the infamous Mushroom Filet Mignon. Needless to say, there is no turning back. I don’t even care that it’s a 2-credit meal. I will be back and I will be enjoying this meal again (and hopefully again and again and again). The steak literally melted in my mouth. Oh my gosh.
Alright, I’m drooling now. I think I need a Disney Dining Fix. I need to go find a calendar and count down the days ’til my next visit!
