May 2012 Trip Report - Hollywood Studios & Epcot


Cupcake #4 - Marble

Cupcake #3 - Chocolate Peanut Butter


       We started the day at Hollywood Studios with the breakfast of champions - CUPCAKES! While there were several different flavors, we picked these.  They were both delicious.

       We utilized our super secret HS plan again this morning - fastpass for Toy Story Mania, Tower of Terror, Rock N Rollercoaster, ride Toy Story Mania.  We also did the Animation Academy; today we drew Carl from UP!



       After that, it was time to go so we could make it to our lunch reservations.  Today, we ate at Le Cellier for lunch.  This was the only repeat reservation we had this trip.  We loved Le Cellier so much last time, we wanted to go again.  The pretzel bread is fantastic.  Did you know that the largest Oktoberfest outside of Germany is in Canada (not Cincinnati)?  I had the wild mushroom filet, which was like heaven in my mouth.  Ken had the strip steak with lovely mashed potatoes.  We also ordered a side of poutine, which was an interesting adventure into Canada's world of junk food - it's fries, cheese curds, and gravy.  It was pretty good as well.

Fire Grill at 'Ohana

       We also rode Soarin', Spaceship Earth, and Figment again.  We were both pretty tired so we headed on back to the hotel.  We had dinner at 'Ohana at the Polynesian at 9:30pm.  You can see Magic Kingdom from the restaurant and the fireworks were at 10pm that night, so I thought it would work out perfectly.  They brought out pot stickers (wonderful), wings (okay), and salad (pretty good).  The meats were brought out on skewers after being roasted over an open fire: steak (pretty good), chicken (good), pork (good), and shrimp (good, but still had the full shell on).  Just before dessert was to come, the fireworks started.  We had a great table, with a clear view of the castle.  Unfortunately, a man allowed his child to climb up on the window and run all over the window ledge unsupervised, so it was difficult to see or get a good picture.  The dessert was bread pudding with bananas foster sauce.  I really liked the sauce, but Ken and I agreed that the pudding was too heavy on the egg.  After dinner, it was time for bed.
