I'm looking forward to trying the Maple glazed cinnamon roll. Does the maple glazing give it a slightly different taste to a regular cinnamon roll?

Hope you have a lovely day today 😀
Yes the pasta is the same set up. The glaze gave it a very different taste to other cinnamon rolls. Lovely

We can take or leave BOG, we've done breakfast and lunch, we go for the atmosphere/novelty not for the food lol.

Love POFQ, I liked the beignets, dd's didn't but we just got square ones not Mickey shaped

Hope you are all having a great time
We are having a great time so

They do a beignets sundae as well but thats not a snack credit

I felt the same as you about the beignets, we won't be getting them again this summer.

Enjoy and thanks for sharing
Thank you. Im guessing one the character places get full then they can get manic. First thing is a bit calmer

Think youve saved me a trek from POR to POFQ for the beignets 👍
Hope you had a lovely birthday Lily 🎂
Thank you. Yes you can definitely order just sides from The Polite Pig.

We really enjoyed it. Very quick meal though

The BOG lunch looked super tasty and on a QS credit too!

Your posts are making me super hungry!
All the character breakfasts are a similar cost. Our favourite is always a Tusker House. We havent done that yet though

Character breakfasts are very pricey OOP but youre definitely paying for the experience and Lily looks so happy.

Drooling over your French Dip pictures, unfortunately we have no room for lunch at BOG and I am very sad about that!

Food court options look fantastic, especially the pasta.
Weve managed to get her to do a few photos in Chef Mickeys! The French Dip was really good. It surprised me.

The food court has been really good so far

Thank you. Beignets I think are a very marmite type food. Love it or hate it

Great update thanks for sharing

TOY STORY EXTRA MORNING MAGIC BREAKFAST:BACKLOT EXPRESS

I will detail the actual event in the main trip report but after the extra morning magic event had finished at 9am we made our way over to the Backlot Express for breakfast which was included in the price. It was supposed to be at the ABC Commissary but that is shut for a refurb.



We timed it perfectly as it was quiet inside but several minutes after we had sat down it got very busy.

You chose a main breakfast from the counter q/s style but there was also buffet offerings as well.

The choice was quite an odd selection and I was a little worried wed all find something.





Lily went for the kids scrambled eggs and sweet potato tots which she enjoyed.



The rest of us went for fried chicken and donuts with sweet potato tots. I was unsure what this would be like but it was lovely and we all enjoyed it. It had maple syrup on the dish as well.



The buffet included cereals, pastries, fruits, yoghurts and a selection of drinks. It was all good.











We all enjoyed this and were surprised how much so.

Thank you. I was keen to see your report on the the Toy Story EMM as we have this booked for our trip.

Looks like there are choices there that all three of us could happily pick from.

Glad you all enjoyed it.

I will try to remember to head over to wherever we are eating (our booking says ABC too) sharp as the park opens to beat the queues too.

CHEF MICKEYs DINNER

This was pretty much the only character meal we had never done. We had it booked several times before and always cancelled for one reason or another. The girls were really looking forward to it.

It was also our first proper visit to The Contemporary. I loved the hotel. We checked in about 7.45pm for our 7.55pm adr. We had a picture taken and waited until about 8pm to be called. First impressions where that this is definitely the most child oriented character meal. Very busy, very loud but we were all good with that so be warned if your not





Our server came along and took drink orders and explained who wed be seeing at that Goofy was due to come in a minute. We waited and saw Goofy before going up to the buffet. I was pleased that Evie was playing ball this evening.



We were soon up at the buffet. Loads of great choice, breads(an amazing white roll with a salt top was my favourite) salads, shrimp, carving station, pasta, mash, sweet and sour chicken,butter chicken, pot stickers,veggies, kids station etc. The list is endless. Again excuse the photos as Buffets are hard to do.














It was all really good and we all over indulged. Personal highlight for me was the beef from the carving station.




Note the compartment plates for kids. I should have used it

In between plates, we had fresh drinks brought round and more character meets with Pluto, Donald and Minnie. Our two are awful and never say anything which is awkward!







Onto desserts. A lovely selection of desserts ranging from Ice cream station, Cookies, brownies, macaroons, cannolis, cakes etc. All really good but I didnt eat loads as I was stuffed!


















We seemed to miss Mickey but we told someone and saw him when we left.



Overall a very positive experience. Good service as well. Noisy and busy and not for everyone but we loved it.

4 t/s credits used

I think the refurb is just a couple of weeks so youll probably be back at ABC Commissary. In regards to Extra Morning Magic. It was really good but more people than I thought. Dont get breakfast before.We headed to breakfast as soon as the crowds were let in as the event finished. It was like a scene from The Walking Dead with the hoards coming at us!
