Menu “Recon”: BoardWalk Pizza Window

Good morning, my friends!  Before we jump into today’s delectable topic, one last time, let’s review the polls we ran last week.

Last Monday, we peered into the menu at Disney Springs’ B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. and chose what we wanted to order for lunch … or, dinner!

The result?  Their 3 Little Pigs Trio led the way!  Hey!  Why not have a little bit of “everything”?  It surely does look like a phenomenal bite!

On Thursday, we admitted Off Kilter into All in WDW’s Hall of Fame.  Congratulations, Off Kilter!  Did you agree with that selection?

Well, the voting is closed now, and your voice was loud and clear.  Over 76% of you say, ‘Yes!  They most certainly deserve to be honored’!  And, so they have been!

Finally, in that very same post, we scratched the surface of the debate that will never go away.  Maelstrom vs. Frozen!  Where do you stand?

Much to my personal pleasure, the original Norwegian adventure is also your choice.  Over 62% of you prefer it to Disney’s attempt to capitalize on all that is Frozen.

Today, folks, we’re back to food.  Big surprise, eh?  Before I launch us back to Disney Springs, I want to take a quick look at yet another BoardWalk favorite.  Pizza!

Let’s quote Disney … “Stroll down Disney’s BoardWalk with a hot slice in hand or order a whole pie to feed the entire family.

Take your pick from [among the] Cheese, Pepperoni or the Signature (Italian sausage, onions, peppers, and balsamic glaze) pizza[s]”!

Let’s see a show of hands … who, here, has had one of the ‘slices’ served by the BoardWalk’s “famous” pizza window?

Wait!  I can’t “see” you.  Answer these polls, instead!  Let’s see if you think that this BoardWalk Quick Service is worth filling your belly and putting a dent in your wallet!

Photo “Tour”: Crescent Lake!

“There’s no such thing as too many pictures of Crescent Lake!”  “Like I said … can’t get enough pics of Crescent Lake!”

I made those very same two comments about a month ago on Facebook and, in return, I received feedback like, “I agree.  I love this area!”  I also heard, “Me either.  It’s breathtaking!”

Well, in the spirit of my original statements, allow me to drop an “avalanche” of shots on you this fine morning.  My friends, please enjoy a look at the “world” of Crescent Lake!

“Overdosing” on Gingerbread? Oh, Sure, Why Not?!

When it comes to Crescent Lake, Disney’s Beach and Yacht Clubs present a phenomenal display.  Have you seen their carousel?

As much as we love the Grand Floridian’s Gingerbread House, we always find this exhibit to be impressive and mesmerizing.

Spend 30 seconds to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Beach Club’s lobby … as well as to take a “ride” on the “Gingerbread Merry-Go-Round”!  Video is below …

Another Dose of Gingerbread? It’s Today’s First Helping!

Now, you know I wasn’t quite done yet.  After all, the Grand Floridian’s “house of ginger” isn’t the only “game” on Disney property!

A tour through WDW’s world of gingerbread isn’t complete until you visit Crescent Lake.  Whether it’s the BoardWalk or the Beach Club, they can hold their own.

For the moment, take the BoardWalk.  This year, they’re offering us an opportunity to visit Ginger’s Bread & Cookie Shoppe!  Yum!

Note the photo opportunity on the right?  I wanted Mrs. All in WDW to join me for a commemorative shot, but she politely declined.  Too bad.

Menu Under Construction: ESPN Club

Well, so it’s not just the menu that’s “under construction”.  The ESPN Club’s entire kitchen is being refurbished as well.  Hmm.  Somehow, we missed that “memo”.

Much to our chagrin, Walt Disney World’s own web site says, “While the kitchen is being refurbished, ESPN Club is temporarily serving a quick-service menu of salads and sandwiches.”  Really?  Now, you tell us?

Both of us were much too hungry to go in search of another venue in which to enjoy lunch, so I selected the Italian Sausage.  It tasted fine, but this and a bag ‘o chips?  For $13.99?  Really?!

Ever diet-conscious, Mrs. All in WDW chose the House Salad with Chicken.  Simple but good, she claimed.

Folks, all in all, our experience was just like it was billed … pretty Quick Service.  It was also quite pricey.

To be honest, unless you’re looking for a cold beer, we recommend you stay away from the ESPN Club until football season arrives.  The kitchen has to be all ready to go by then, wouldn’t you think?!
