Thanks to Jenn, as always, for hosting!
I am a huge fan of the food available at Disney! They’ve really got everything – from quick service meals to fancier restaurants – and it’s all great!
Saturday Night – Grand Floridian Cafe
Grand Floridian Burger – Angus Chuck Burger, Butter-poached Lobster, Red Onion Marmalade, Crispy Prosciutto, and Arugula on a Brioche Bun with Chips
We were sure to make dinner reservations for Saturday night. We didn’t want to get stuck eating something on the fly, and we wanted to make sure we had good food in our stomachs for the race on Sunday.
Was this the healthiest option? No, definitely not. BUT, it was delicious. I never used to be a big burger person, but I’m definitely coming around. (The homemade chips were delicious, too!)
Sunday Night – Flying Fish Cafe (Disney’s BoardWalk)
Potato + Onion Bread with Butter
Oak-grilled Maine Diver Scallops – Roasted Pumpkin, Sage, Pecorino Romano, and Mascarpone-laced Risotto do Carnaroli with Crispy Prosciutto Cracklins’
“Nuts About Chocolate” Indulgence – Caramel Chocolate and Hazelnut Praline Mousse, Candied Pecan and Butterscotch-laced Blondie, Chocolate Sorbet, and Candied Marcona Almonds
Are you dying over these pictures? Because I was in heaven throughout this meal! I love scallops, and will usually order them if I spot them on the menu. It’s just not a dish I trust myself to cook at home. These were cooked to perfection and the risotto was a cheese-lover’s heaven.
Dessert was definitely an indulgence. The chocolate sorbet was so rich that I could only have a few tastes. However, the blondie was completely devoured.
I “rounded out” the meal with an unphotographed glass of Riesling.
This dinner was a great way to celebrate our half marathon and I’d definitely go back to Flying Fish on another Disney trip!
Monday Morning – Kona Cafe (Polynesian Resort)
Kona Coffee (+ water, too!)
Tonga Toast – Banana-stuffed Sourdough French Toast rolled in Cinnamon Sugar and served with a Strawberry Compote
The Kona Cafe and this particular dish came recommended by a co-worker. I’m so glad my sister and I made the trek here (bus + monorail!) because this tasted amazing. The Kona coffee was much needed (I realized late Sunday that I hadn’t had coffee the entire day!), and the stuffed French toast was unlike anything I’ve ever had before.
As always, my Disney dining experiences didn’t disappoint!
