WDW Dining: Beaches & Cream

Beaches & Cream was high on my food list for WDW. This would be the second night in a row that the kids had two dinners because when we got there they both wanted a hot dog. Mom and I hadnt eat that much for dinner so we split the cheesburger which was honestly pretty awful. Good thing I had plans for the No Way Jose sundae because that didn't disappoint. One of the best sundaes I have ever had I would definitely go back for it. Incidentally it's very hard to get reservations here and after being there now I understand why, there are less than 15 tables in the place-its super good and they have a to go area so you can get that ice cream there.

Florida Trip Recap: Day 2 WDW

The day started off with a visit to Animal Kingdom lodge. It was pretty impressive but we agreed we liked Wilderness Lodge better. The DVC area was cool since it overlooked an animal area. After breakfast at Boma we checked out the hotel and the pool areas. The kids played at a little park before we headed to Winter Summerland Miniature golf. There were two courses, one was summer and one was winter and the premise is that Florida was hit was a freak snowstorm. On the winter side they played Christmas music and the summer side was full of Beach boys. It was fun-the girls had a blast. After miniature golf we headed back to the hotel where we met Rachel and the kids. We hung out the rest of the day at the pools at the Carribbean Beach resort. We all went down the waterslide (even Grandma) and we had alot of fun. We ate dinner there and then Rachel and the kids left. We headed to the Beach Club to check it out and have dessert.

WDW Dining: BOMA

"Boma is an African term for a fence made of sticks that forms a safe enclosure in Africa. The theming of this restaurant was great and we all enjoyed the breakfast buffet. All the food was great but our favorites were probably the African hash and the French toast bread pudding with Pecan Praline sauce-Super good!

Brooke made a "T" for Thomas with her sausage

Sydney got a birthday surprise

Sydney's plate....after she was done the salami and donut were gone and everything else was still there.

WDW Dining: Artist Point

Our first Disney World restaurant of the trip was Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. This four star restaurant is only open for 4 hours a day and I booked it for dessert only. Once we got there Sydney and Brooke decided they wanted MacNCheese so we had two orders of that before ordering our desserts. The girls got the Mickey Artist Puzzle which was a white chocolate puzzle that they had to put together and then paint with frosting. A great birthday dessert! Mom and I split the Artist Point Cobbler with berries and black raspberry ice cream. I had read about this in advance and it certainly didn't disappoint.
