Dining Recon: Sushi at California Grill!

Happy Saturday, folks!  What better way to come off of a couple of turkey-stuffed days than with a light and refreshing treat?  Say, with some ‘highfalutin’ sushi, perhaps?

Mrs. All in WDW and I got the opportunity to enjoy the sights, sounds, and, more importantly, the tastes of the Contemporary Resort’s California Grill on a recent trip, and, let me tell you, it was fantastic … as always!

Of course, as you might expect from a Signature restaurant, Cali’s prices are as high as its food is classy.  Nonetheless, we’d recommend that you dine there at least once.  And, hey, if you like sushi, give theirs a try.  It’s expensive, but it’s great!  Bon appetit!

The sushi bar!

You know that a Lobster Roll will require an open wallet. At $26, this little morsel delivered in that regard.

Boasting tuna, watermelon, salmon, apples, hamachi, and crab, Cali’s Sashimi was delicious but it commanded a big price too – $24!

The “World’s” Best Frittata? How … Contemporary!

I have to admit it, folks.  Our last visit to the Contemporary Resort’s Contempo Café yielded one of the very best Quick Service breakfasts I’ve ever had.

Eggs, ham and cheddar served with a slice of whole-grain toast, simple as it was, their Ham and Cheese Frittata was fantastic!

It was the perfect blend of eggs, cheese, and little bits of ham, my friends.  I had planned on using some Tabasco, but it tasted too good as it was!

I’ve never been that big of a Quick Service breakfast fan, I have to say.  Having had this morsel, however, I’d be willing to change my mind.  Great work, Contempo.  We’ll be back!

We Present … OUR Disney “Living” Lists!

Hello, folks!  Did you get a chance to catch the latest exciting episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast?  It was Episode #319 – Our “Living” Lists!

You haven’t?  You’ve heard of “Bucket Lists”, haven’t you?  According to Wikipedia, they are “a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.”

Well, my friends, here, at All in WDW and on the WDW Main Street Podcast, we prefer to call this type of compilation a “Living List”!

Click the names, below, to see our “menus” of Disney dreams.  What do we want to do in our lifetimes?  Then, think about it yourself!  What’s your Disney “Living List”?
