Dining Recon: Beach Club Marketplace

Hello, all!  Have you missed me?  Well, now that our relocation to Kentucky has come to an end, I’ll try to find a bit more time to share some of the WDW content I’ve been storing up since early in the year.  I’ll really try!

First up … let’s grab a cheap lunch at Beach Club Marketplace!  On our past few trips, Mrs. All in WDW and I made a conscious attempt to do Disney “Quick Service-style”.  We found one of our new favorite lunches last March.

Leaving it to Disney, these could be gone by now, but I do know that they were still being served in July.  If you’re looking for a quick sandwich, why not try the Marketplace’s Spicy Italian Sandwich?

At the time, it cost a relatively inexpensive $8.49.  It was a delicious bargain in my opinion as it was loaded with Italian meats and Provolone Cheese.  Most important, the giardiniera relish that adorned the sandwich added a phenomenal taste.

Of course, you might want to take a “healthier” course to reach dining satisfaction, eh?  Mrs. All in WDW can lead you the way with her choice – Smoked Turkey & Brie.  Equally reasonable, at the same price, here it is …

This sandwich was very reminiscent of a beloved one we used to be able to buy over at BoardWalk Bakery.  Served on Multigrain Bread, the turkey is adorned with Apple, Brie Cheese, Dijonnaise Mayo, and Dijon Mustard.  Mrs. All in WDW was very glad to have found it!

Like us, maybe you discard Quick Service options like Beach Club Marketplace from your list of attractive dining options.  From a price and satisfaction standpoint, however, places like Marketplace can fit the bill.  In the cases of these sandwiches, we can’t recommend them more highly.  Hopefully – months later – they’re still there!

So, How IS Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

Welcome to the Main Street Pub, folks!  Pull up a bar stool and join John and Doug as they cover all of the latest news from around Walt Disney World!

What’s up this week, you ask?  Hmm.  Well … Does Doug rant … again?  Did John enjoy Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?  Order a cold beverage, sit back, relax, and enjoy another jam-packed show!

Episode 477 – Our Sunday News!

Dining Recon: Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill!

Howdy, folks!  How’s it goin’?  The topic of Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill came up during a recent episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast.  I believe it happened during my last appearance …

Episode 467 – It’s Food & Wine 2018!

Yes, we were chatting about this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  Lots of great cuisine being offered this year, but one of the items – Hops and Barley’s New England Lobster Roll is a particularly beloved fan favorite.

Problem is … at $8 per serving, a lot of critics (myself included) have tapped this dish as nowhere near worth the price.  Oh, it is tasty, don’t get me wrong.  It’s also typically quite small.  Take a look …

2016’s “loaded?” Lobster Roll

In comparison, there are much better values to be found on WDW property.  For example, take a trip over to the Magic Kingdom.  Many fans rave about Columbia Harbour House’s Lobster Roll.

Myself?  Well, I prefer … you guessed it … the recipe served up by Hurricane Hanna’s.  Delivered on Parker House Bread with Citrus Mayonnaise and accompanied by French Fries or Apple Slaw, their Seafood Roll is a feast!

If you take a close look, it is presented as three attached rolls.  Three!  Plus, loaded with lobster, scallops, and more than half-a-dozen shrimp, it is utterly delicious!  Wow!

Do you want to know the best part?  $11.79!  What?!  Think about it this way … Hops & Barley’s version is all lobster.  However, even if it was loaded with this much seafood, wouldn’t it have to cost two to three times Hanna’s price?

For my money, folks, I’d pass on Food & Wine (never thought I’d say that!) and walk over to Disney’s Beach & Yacht Club.  Visit Hanna.  Pull up a stool at the bar, chat with their friendly bartenders, and grab a seafood feast!  You won’t be sorry that you did!
