We're booked for CBR & doing the QSDP next summer so am really finding this interesting, lots more yummy food on the QSDP than I thought! My hubby will be pleased as he's convinced there's not many options and it's all burgers and nuggets!

Looking forward to more!

Enjoying reading and nice to put a face to the name!
If you're back in future world we ate at the Electric Umbrella and it was actually really good. The sausage and pepper sandwich was lovely but enormous!
Enjoy the rest of your time.

It's a pity that the food court has disappointed, I think POR spoils us all! A real shame about the salad as it sounds tasty!
Sorry, not sure about the other cupcakes as my focus was solely on n the fruit tart once I'd spotted it. I'm planning on going back for another one though, so will see what sort of cupcake selection they have

Personally, I think all the QS food courts should be up to the standard of POR. We were happy with the POFQ one too, and even Artist's Palette at SSR was better for us than CBR. At least there are tasty options to be had in the parks and at Disney Springs

I applied to the Applause Store who manage the tickets for SNTA and was lucky enough to get chosen. Not really sure what to expect, but excited to be a part of it. The children love Ant and Dec and we haven't told them about it, so will be a great surprise for them

I'm pleased you put on about the choc chip crime drink as I had seen that and wondered what it was like- so it's not a milkshake? Or is it? I never go into Starbucks either as I don't like coffee but this seem a nice alternative to fizzy drinks or water!
As far as I know, it's only available there, but I'm sure if any other dibbers have found it elsewhere, then they'll say. The chocolate crme is a milk shake but was more like a milkshake made with milk in consistency, rather than one made with ice cream. I think they use ice in it too, so maybe that made the difference. It was good though and will get another one when we go back

Thanks. Tbh, I think it's easier for me to do it this way rather than taking everything home and writing 2 weeks up then. We have some down time every day, so this is what I do in mine now. Enjoy POR

We are looking forward to watching it and remembering we were there this time last year 😊. Thanks for the tip about phoning to add our birthdays on our bookings for next year when we book our ADRs, another thank you we owe you.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday ☺
The fruit tart and drink were really good. Pleased that I've been able to help with your planning

Thank you. Might give it another look sometime, although I think the rest of our planned Epcot visits are centred around World Showcase, so maybe next time we go back

Day 6 - Snacking around Epcot and Outta Control Comedy Magic show at Wonderworks

Another day and it probably won't surprise you to see that breakfast looked like this:

It's not that we don't like food court breakfasts, more that we like our sleep more! So on days when we're heading out earlier or want to lie in, grabbing breakfast in our room suits us.

Today's lunches consisted of snacking around the world. First stop was Urban Farm Eats where we used 3 snack credits and ordered:
1 x Watermelon Salad with Pickled Onions, B&W Gourmet Farms Baby Arugula, Feta and Balsamic Reduction.
2 x Seared Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Ragot, Spring Vegetables and Fingerling Potatoes.
A couple of photos of each of these - one as it was presented and one with things moved around a bit to show more of what was included.

This was all absolutely delicious! I'm the only one in the family who eats water melon and I loved this little salad. Everyone agreed that the pork was great too. We'd order both of them again without hesitation

Next was Northern Bloom in Canada. Here I used 1QS credit in exchange for 3 snacks and we got:
Seared Scallops with French Green Beans, Butter Potatoes, Brown Butter Vinaigrette and Apple wood Smoked Bacon.
Beef Tenderloin Tips, Mushroom Bordelaise Sauce, Whipped Potatoes with Garden Vegetables.
Maple Popcorn Shake (non-alcoholic) - sorry about the photo but Brodie drank most of this before I started taking photos.

I don't eat seafood so Andy had the scallops and said they were really good and still tender. Izzy wanted to try them but her aversion to anything smoked meant they were a no go due to the smoked bacon on them. I ate the beef, which could have been more tender, but the sauce was tasty, mash smooth and carrot a welcome vegetable The milkshake was really good and Brodie happily devoured it and would definitely have it again, as would Andy with the scallops. The beef was nice enough, but I wouldn't go back for more.

Our next stop was in England, but not for the food booth. It was our annual stop at the Yorkshire fish and chip shop for Brodie as he loves the fish there. I used 1QS credit and got a portion of fish and chips with a bottle of water. I forgot to photograph this, so the photo is courtesy of the Disney Food Blog, and looks the same as ours did.

Brodie ate the fish with lashings of ketchup and Izzy and Andy ate the chips. So nice to be able to get a proper chunky chip in America

By now Izzy was chomping at the bit to get to France and order another portion of the chicken and crawfish dish we had a couple of days ago. We used 2 snack credits and ordered:
Poulet aux crevisses, Riz Pilaf: Baked Chicken with Crawfish served with Rice Pilaf.
Macaron Chocolat Framboise: Large Raspberry Macaron with Chocolate Fudge and Raspberry Jam.

Izzy devoured this again and wouldn't let anyone else near it. A definite hit with her. Andy and I shared the macaron. The chocolate ganache filing was really smooth and rich, but I couldn't taste the raspberry at all. Andy said he could really taste the raspberry so I guess I gave him the half with the blob of raspberry jam in it

Afterwards we treated ourselves to ice creams from L'Artisan des Glaces. I used 4 snack credits and we got:
Me - Waffle cone with a single scoop of salted caramel ice cream.
Andy - Strawberry and vanilla ice cream macaron.
Izzy - Waffle cone with mixed berry sorbet.
Brodie - Waffle cone with vanilla ice cream.

Not much to say here except that everything was really good

Back at CBR, the kids wanted a drink and snack, so we used 1QS credit and got them a pack of pretzels, pack of plain Lays and bottle of water.


Dinner was at the Outta Control Comedy Magic show at Wonderworks. It includes unlimited salad, pizza, soft drinks, wine and beer, plus dessert. As Izzy doesn't eat pizza, they did her a portion of chicken nuggets and fries, but I forgot to photograph them, as well as the brownie style dessert. They both came out while the show was on and I was enjoying that too much - especially once the children volunteered Andy to help out on stage. So funny!
Salad and pizza looked like this:

I was pleased to see the salad wasn't dressed and they had a tasty creamy style dressing available on the side. It was a fairly basic salary, but nice and fresh. The pizza was good, but could have done with a slightly thicker base as you had to eat it with your hands and it was quite floppy. Tasty though I wasn't a fan if the brownie style dessert as I could teste cinnamon which I can't stand. Everyone else was happy enough though.

That's it for food today. Not really sure what tomorrow will bring food wise as the only firm plans we have is an evening at Magic Kingdom. I'm thinking maybe a visit to Disney Springs, but I'll see how everyone feels in the morning.
