Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies

We headed up through Tomorrowland...




...and something caught our eye that we saw others walking around with so we went on a hunt for it. We found it at Auntie Gravity;s Galactic Goodies. It was a Christmas Special Milk Shake...it was gingerbread flavored!





It was, again, messy. But it was super good! We fought over the giant Mickey head marshmallow. ANd it was so cute...which is half the value right there! With the rain on and off and with it being slightly hot outside, we had to drink this pretty quickly but between the four of us, it did not take long! It cost us $8.51...we checked out at 2:48pm.

TOTAL = $366.71

Casey's Corner

After the Jingle Cruise we were all hungry again So we decided on Casey's Corner. So at 4:22pm we headed over there. The area was crowded but there was enough room to find a table. We love watching the ducks, the castle, people, parades from here. We gave Cary the order and went to find a table.






The poor kid in the wheelchair was petrified of the ducks and the ducks had no fear of him!



Skyler ordered the Corn Dog Nuggets Meal with Cheese Sauce - served with Apple Slices or French Fries.



She really liked them and there was quite a bit of them so we all got to try them. We all agreed! Casey's fried are really good dipped in cheese...and for me, ketchup and cheese or ketchup and mayo!

Tyler got the All-Beef Hot Dog Meal - served with Apple Slices or French Fries...plain!



This is exactly what he loves in a dog!

Cary and I decided to share the Chili-Cheese All-Beef Hot Dog - topped with Chili and Cheddar. Served with Apple Slices or French Fries.



And it was really good! They do have a foot long version also but we decided on the regular one because we were also sharing the Bacon Macaroni & Cheese Fries - French Fries topped with Macaroni and Cheese and Bacon!



These were really good, although hard to eat because, well, noodles do not stick to french fries very well! The kids even snagged some of this...and if you've been paying attention you know what a huge thing that is! Skye loves the "juicy" kind of mac & cheese to dip fries in but bacon on mac & cheese? NO WAY! And Tyler is just not very adventurous...until he is???


Between the fries and the dogs, we have plenty of food and we all left full. It was 4:25pm when Cary checked out and we probably sat there for 30-40 minutes. Our total was $42.56. We love Casey's but we don't tend to get there a lot either because of the location, or the lure of other foods or because of the dining plan.

TOTAL = $409.27

    Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes

    Everyone wanted to eat and since we had never had breakfast in Asia we stopped at Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes. We all ordered and then Skyler and I went to find a table. There were a lot open but most were either directly int he sun (which was crazy hot just then) or still wet from the rain (there was a cast member going around wiping down the chairs and tables though). We were able to find one in the sun but not directly and soon Tyler came to find us and then Cary was coming with the food.




    We did our usual of ordering three things for us to all share.

    We ended up getting a Bacon and Egg Sandwich - Eggs, American Cheese, Candied Black Pepper Bacon on Toasted Challah Bread served with Hash Brown Bites...minus the cheese.



    He was afraid of this...challah, 'nuff said. But he loved it...I keep telling him to stop getting hung up on words! Personally, I don't know how he eats a breakfast sandwich without cheese but whatever! I did have a bite or two and it was really good.

    Cary and I decided to share the Breakfast Bowl with Bacon or Sausage - Scrambled Eggs, Cheddar Cheese, Breakfast Potatoes, Pepper and Onions with choice of Bacon or Sausage...with sausage.




    It was plenty big enough for both of us and had plenty of all ingredients spread out in it. We both really liked it, and Skyler scammed on some of the potatoes.

    We also ordered a side of Hash Brown Bites.




    We all enjoyed the hash brown bites and we had plenty of them to go around...they were fresh and hot but not greasy at all!

    Skyler decided on the Kid's French Toast - includes choice of 1% Mickey Milk, Small Bottled Water or 100% Minute Maid® Apple Juice...and it's not listed but it came with hash brown bites too.

    :


    This was perfect for her for breakfast. All of it was really good and she got a big bottle of apple juice, not a little juice box so she was pleased!

    While we were eating (we were seated along the side near the monkeys) one of the Howler Monkeys started "singing"...for a long time...really loudly...it was so funny!


    Cary ordered at 9:31am and our total was $36.81. We have likes all meals here now, so I am sure we will be back in the future.

    TOTAL = $446.08

    Isle of Java

    So we stopped at Isle of Java and he got a Joffrey’s Coffee™ Cold Brew - Joffrey’s Shakin’ Jamaican™.



    And I have been wanting a Cheshire Cat Tail at Magic Kingdom for a while and just have not gotten one yet so I got the Tiger Tail Chocolate Twist.



    We wanted something else but I cannot remember what it was. I think it was mini-cinnamon rolls or mini-donuts but I don't have a picture because they had just run out of them. Anyway, Cary likes his Jamaican and the tail was really good! I was glad I got it because now I know! LOL...We were there at 10:40am and our stuff cost $10.42. This was a nice quick stop on our journey...we would stop again if it was where we were.

    TOTAL = $456.50

    Thank you for your review of the Diamond Horseshoe! We went there years and years ago when it was the Diamond Horseshoe Review, and you had to have tickets for it, which went really fast first thing in the morning. I've been wanting to go there again, mostly for old times sake, but I was leery because of not knowing how the food was. Now I can't wait to give it a try! You also now have me wanting to stop at the Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafe for breakfast, which we've yet to do. We've go to the table service restaurant almost every trip, but it's nice to know of another breakfast option at AK.

    Pongu Pongu

    The next stop requirement was at Pongu Pongu for a Night Blossom - Non-Alcoholic Specialty Beverage - layers of Apple and Desert Pear Limeade topped with Passion Fruit Boba Balls. I cannot believe I do not have a picture of this beauty but we all love it...not too sweet and nice and cold! This was our first experience with Boba Balls years ago! The total was $6.38 and it was 11:19am.



    TOTAL = $452.88

    Harambe Market

    It was pouring when we got off the train so we donned out ponchos and umbrella and headed to The Harambe Market. We decided on what to get and Skye and I found a seat in a covered area along the fence overlooking the train tracks. Animal Kingdom has become one of our favorite places to snack around. So we ordered two items. First we got the Beef and Lamb Gyro - Thin-sliced Gyro Meats served open-faced on Naan topped with Cucumber and Tomato Salad and Tzatziki Sauce and served with African Coleslaw.



    I don't remember it being Chicken and Lamb (I thought it was chicken only) but maybe? I do remember that we both really enjoyed it. It felt lighter than a regular gyros...maybe just because there was less meat on it or maybe it was the sauce on it? Who knows...but it was really good and I even liked the coleslaw!


    We also ordered the Chicken Bowl -
    Grilled Chicken and White Rice served with choice of Apple Slices or Carrot Sticks with choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small DASANI® Water.



    And of course she got the cookie not the carrots or grapes! This was pretty dry...not texture wise, just that it had nothing on it. The meat is seasoned well and who does not like white rice...especially some what picky young adult-ish people? The both liked this and would have gotten another one if I hadn't reminded them that there were more places to stop on our way around.


    We were here at 3:32pm and we sat a while and waited to let the rain subside a bit. We all enjoyed our food here and it was not crowded at this time. We are actually sad to see this place not on the list of open venues for our upcoming trip. I know we will return here someday. Our total was $26.28.

    TOTAL = $479.16
