  1. Instant Pot

    Made this on Sunday night. SO good, especially with some crusty bread to soak up the broth. Would totally make it again, big hit with the family.

  4. Fort Christmas music?

    I'm going to bump this, anyone have any insight? Artists, albums, whatever? My wife loves the FW Christmas music. If anyone will be at the fort over the holidays this year, can you inquire at the Outpost or one of the trading posts??? Thanks in advance!!

    I can pretty much agree with everything you mentioned. That pancake was one of my favorite bites from the festival! I think the only thing that was better came from the Africa and India booths. The pomegranate beer was like drinking hard soda, but soooo tasty on a hot day. Dangerous. The cheese plate selection in the Tutto Gusto wine cellar is better IMHO than the Germany version, though.
  6. Artist Point bone in ribeye for 2

    I have to say that AP remains one of my favorite restaurants on property, even though reviews are always spotty. Maybe it's just been my luck, but we have almost always had great service and always excellent food. The one time we had less than great service, to their credit, was when we had a large (20+ people) party with a lot of kids, people with various food allergies, and separate checks - they were busy that night and we probably overtaxed the staff. The atmosphere is great and we make a point to go there on almost every trip.
  7. That was our issue - MK closed at 11, Castle show was at 8. We hit a few rides then did a monorail crawl. never made it past the Poly. We weren't sure the buses were available at midnight, but our friendly neighborhood Minnie Van driver was.
  8. She did ask which resort we were staying at, but did not check my magic band. Trader Sam's closed at 12 so the 12:30 curfew was fine for us. I'd assume they have the 12:30 curfew in place to limit the exposure to the crowds at Disney Springs? It seemed kind of arbitrary, although I'm sure they have data that tells them the best hours to operate. It was definitely the way to go after closing down the bar. If I had a character breakfast first thing or was hoping to hit a rope drop early i would definitely consider it. We actually almost took it the next day from AK to Epcot Center but it would have been a wash time wise with taking the bus as there were no cars in close proximity. Our driver said they were planning on expanding the fleet again but didn't offer a timetable for doing so. Just an FYI I believe the cars (Chevy Traverses) can take up to 6 riders, but don't quote me on that. It might be 5. Not sure if the 3rd row seated 3. There was a Lyft/Minnie Van pop up in MDE several times during our stay. I already had the app loaded, but you can get the Minnie Van availability added directly through the MDE app somehow as one of our traveling party was able to do that. However, I don't know if it was because we were all staying at the Yacht & Beach Club and it was in the MB/MDE system.
  9. I meant to comment on this the other day. We took a Minnie Van last week from the Poly to the Yacht Club. The service runs from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM, and the information from TCD above is correct. I went to the concierge at the Poly and they were able to have a code sent to my phone that activated the Minnie Van option within the Lyft app. $20 flat fee anywhere on property with unlimited stops. The driver was a CP CM and was very pleasant, he said the service was very popular and they had expanded the fleet already. I can tell you that it was worth every penny for 4 of us to get back to the Yacht club at midnight after a few drinks at Trader Sam's. I wouldn't use it every day, but for a quick ride I think it's worth it.
  10. It's official the new Avatar land is coming!

    On another note, I finally had the opportunity to ride Flight of Passage last week. We skipped the Navi river ride, even though we had fast passes for it. We arrived about 15 minutes before rope drop (say 8:45) and were on the ride by 10 am, including the walk and wait in line. Honestly, I wouldn't wait any longer than that. It was great, pretty much like soarin' but on an individual ride vehicle and with really ill fitting glasses. I pretty much have an iron stomach, but this ride made even me a bit nauseous. All in our party felt the same way. By the time we exited the ride wait was 150 min. As I've said before, the land itself is really well done, and the wait really didn't feel like one since there was so much to see. I've never seen the film. Net/Net, I'd still rather ride Everest than this again, though.

    Yes! I forgot about the cheese trio. It was all good, especially the blue cheese with the honey. We, like you, passed on a lot of items in 'quotations'. Ain't nobody got time for that.

    All I can say is that the last two days there have been unbelievably hot. Glad to be back in cooler temps. Mo, it's not on the literature but the Refreshment Port has a 'Stow Away Mary', which is a Bloody Mary with blue cheese stuffed olives and a couple of chicken nuggets on a skewer. Was a great way to get rolling in the morning. Not as good as the Bloody Mary at the Dawa Bar in AK, but good nonetheless. Also, skip the dole whip w/ rum; wait and get the Spiky Pineapple at Trader Sam's instead, or get the 'Extra Spiky' version with the 151 floater... And if you like the Grapefruit Hefeweizen beer in Germany, be sure to try the new Pomegranate version. The only place we saw it was at the Brewer's Collection beer garden next to Germany.

    Make sure to hit the 'Flavors from Fire' booth over by innoventions west. They had some tasty stuff, although not super spicy as mentioned above. The pancake there was probably my favorite. The Indian and African booths were also very good. So was the lobster roll at the Hops & Barley Pavilion.

    All I can say is wow, we didn't have many misses in the dishes we sampled, and there were a few things we wanted to try but never made it back around to try. I'll try to make up a list later.
