    After lunch we headed back to the Christmas Store.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And looked around a while. It was really crowded in there. We kinda just moseyed around waiting on Parade time.

    When it was time we headed up to the flag pole on Main Street and were told to go anywhere around the center circle inside the ropes and the tickets would be picked up later. So we grabbes a spot facing Tony's. OMG! I don't know that the passes are worth it...there is more sun here than anywhere else...no, just kidding but it sure seemed like it! Cary ran to buy an umbrella to block the sun. $23.42 later I am now the owner of a cute umberlla with little Mickeys all over it!!!! It helped but I am not sure how much. While he was gone Skye started talking to older lady and her young adult daughter from the Netherlands. She told her we were there because she was dancing at Univeral and on a Cruise and taking a class at Disney later in the trip. The older lady said she was a dance teacher and she could tell Skye was a dancer but the way she holds herself...I can tell because she walks through first position all the time! So they had a nice little conversation before the parade started.

    And then it was here...

    After the parade we walked back towards Tomorrowland and ended up so hot that we grabbed a seat under the Tomorrowland Terrace which was closed already and they were getting set up for the dessert party already at about 4pm. Seemed crazy early to take away an eating place with all the crowds and one of the few truly shady spots to stop and cool off a bit but no one asked me. So we sat for a few and decided to head back to the pool to swim. We grabbed a bus with little wait and got to our room, changed quickly and headed to the pool!

    Cute!

    I always thought Tomorrowland was part of EMH too! Though we didn't do any morning EMH. Maybe we both got confused because I know for certain Fantasyland and Tomorrowland are both EMH at Disneyland!

    Yup, I don't like the legs too! I always like it when there are just the rings so I don't have to feel guilty about wasting food!

    After getting back to our room we found this...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ...and changed and headed to the pool for a bit of watery fun!

    By 6:43pm we were on a bus heading to Disney Springs. We headed to our evening destination window shopping along the way. We checked in at The BOATHOUSE at 7:30pm.

    [​IMG]

    We were seated right away. We walked through the whole place (it seemed) to a back corner near the kitchen. Seemed like a basic, same, old, boring restaurant for us. So far not getting the hype.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    We were handed our menus and brought water.

    [​IMG]

    The soft warm rolls were a huge hit.

    [​IMG]

    Our waitress, Ashley, was pretty slow on the order and the delivery. She wasn't super helpful either. They were busy but I would assume if you build a large venue, you hope/expect it to be busy so...??? We asked a few questions about the menu and were not super happy with the the answers. They do not do substitutions. The majority of the sides you would normally expect to come with your meal, cost extra, and of course are not included on the dining plan.

    Finally, we got our order taken. A bit later our appetizers arrived.

    I ordered Jumbo Lump Crab and Avacado with Tarragon Remoulade.

    [​IMG]

    I really enjoyed it even if it wasn't what I was expecting. It was a large scoop of crab and avocado covered in the remoulade. Everything went together really well. No one else wanted to try it though. I was fine with that.

    Tyler ordered Hoison Chili Calamari - bell peppers, jalapeno, and serrano chili.



    [​IMG]

    Which again, we all enjoyed. They did have a bit of a wang to it but not an overpowering one. We have rings and legs here too. Again we ate the rings. It's a nice light batter and fresh, soft rings.

    Cary ordered the Firecracker Shrimp...Sriracha Mayo, Serrano Chilis and Sweet Peppers.

    [​IMG]

    And he really enjoyed them. He is not much of a spicy food kind of an eater so even though they are called Firecracker, they couldn't have been too spicy. Tyler had a couple also but I think the sauce threw him off.

    Skyler didn't see anything that she was familiar with that she wanted so she went with the BOATHOUSE Lobster Cocktail...Half Chilled 1 1/4 lb. Lobster, Creamy, Lady Rose Cocktail Sauce.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Which freaked her out! I don't really know why. She loves lobster. She loves playing with claws and tails and things. But she was totally turned off by the face looking at her while she was tearing it apart. But it was really good once we got over laughing at her response. Very fresh and the sauces were good with the meat.

    It was a while between our appetizers and entrees. Skye had the Cedar Planked Puget Sound Salmon...frisee, roasted wild mushrooms, petite green beans, grape tomatoes.

    [​IMG]

    She loved it! It was very well cooked...browned on the outside, moist on the inside.

    I had the Filet Mignon Oscar Style (12 ounce)...Jumbo Lump Carb, Asparagus, Breanaise.


    [​IMG]


    I ordered it medium rare. It came a bit more done than that though. The
    Bearnaise did nothing for the steak at all and I was kind of disappointed. This piece of meat was nice but I should have gone with it plain. And it would have been nice if it had been cooked the way i asked for it to be. I know, I could have sent it back but it took so ling to actually get it that I didn't want to sit there much longer. The potatoes were awesome though. Skyler ended up with Tyler's.

    The boys ordered Filet Mignon (12 ounce)...proudly serving certified USDA Gibsons Blue Star Heritage Angus with choice of sauce.

    [​IMG]

    Tyler ordered it medium rare and Cary ordered it medium. Tyler's seemed fine but Cary's was bleeding! He wouldn't eat it like that and Tyler had already started eating his so the waitress took it back and had it cooked more. It came back butterflied and cooked a little too much but he ate it. Tyler was unable to substitute the potatoes for fries. He could buy fries but not sub them for the potatoes. So, Skye took his potatoes. They both liked their steaks ok.

    We sat quite a while after finishing our entrees before Ashley came back for our dessert orders.

    For dessert Skyler ordered Strawberry Shortcake that is not on the menu anymore.

    [​IMG]

    We both really liked this. Lots of strawberries and whipped cream with biscuits between.

    I had the Key Lime Pie in a Mason Jar...vanilla bean Chantilly cream.

    \

    [​IMG]

    This was really good too and a cute way of serving it. it;s not a huge portion but it was enough.

    Tyler got the Double Chocolate Bundt Cake...Vanilla Ice Cream, Raspberry Coulis, Valrhona Fudge sauce

    [​IMG]

    This was really good with the moist chocoalte cake soaked in the raspberry coulis. We all shared this.

    Cary ordered the Root Beer Float...BOATHOUSE Signature.

    [​IMG]

    Which he really liked. It was nice to have this as an option.

    Overall, this is one of Cary's favorite. For me, not so much. Tyler probably would have been happier if he could have gotten fries without paying an extra $9.00. Other than the lobster looking at her, Skyler was happy with her salmon. We were here over two hours. That is a long meal for us. It was not because we wanted it that long either. In the end I was disappointed that I have changed this one out from Morimoto but I don't think everyone else was. Since I am the planner, I am going to say, I will not book this one. Maybe again someday...but not in the next few trips.

    As we were walking out the band was playing in the first room you enter. I was not sure if this is part of the BOATHOUSE or if it is technically a different bvenue though???

    [​IMG]

    We ended up using 8 dining credits but it would have cost $333.35.

    June 24, 2017 - Day #4 started at 6:40am. Skyler needed Mickey Waffles so we headed to World Premiere Food Court for food.

    So we got Mickey Waffles with bacon and sausage.

    [​IMG]

    It was enough for all of us to snack on before heading out to the park. The total was $9.13 and we paid out of pocket for this.

    We ate and then went to the bus stop at 8:07am. The first bus that came around was an ESPN bus then the one for Hollywood Studios. We were on a bus at 8:18am and arrived at the Studios at 8:31am.

    [​IMG]

    We were let in up to the Trolly Car Cafe to wait for rope drop.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We looked around in the stores a bit to keep cool. It was already really hot outside.

    We were finally let in and headed around towards the same place everyone else was heading...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Toy Story has a 30 minute wait at 9:06am. So we went in to wait. At about 9:20am some announcement was made but we couldn't really hear it because it was so loud in there. Some people started to leave but we stayed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were able to get on shortly after that so it was probably about 30 minutes. Still don't know what the announcement was though.

    At the end of PixarLand was this...

    [​IMG]

    And her, even though at the time we weren't quite sure who she was!

    [​IMG]

    We went into One Man's Dream and saw the Cars three preview and then waited to see someone new...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cary told Baby Groot "I am Groot" and Baby Groot looked at him like it was so awesome!

    It was a cool meet and greet. It was 10:28am when we walked out of there.

    We walked over towards Ariel and saw a couple of Stormtroopers walking around.

    [​IMG]

    And we headed up and around the Great Movie Ride.

    [​IMG]

    And back around to use our fast passes for Toy Story.

    [​IMG]

    After another great ride through Andy's room (at 10:43), we headed back around to our next destination.

    [​IMG]

    I noticed i started getting my rash back again that I got last summer on my lower legs! NO!!!!

    We headed towards Muppets.

    [​IMG]

    We were able to do Muppets at 10:59pm with no wait. I don't like the balloon gone and the fountan filled in with plants (although I do hear the water is back now).

    At 11:31am we checked in at Mama Melrose.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were shown right in and lead to a great table.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Our waitress was Danielle and she was good. She gave out menus and gave suggestions and brought bread.

    [​IMG]

    We were some of the first seated so it was pretty quiet in there when we started but filled up quickly.

    For appetizer Tyler ordered Carne d'Italia Flatbread...with Pepperoni, House-made Sausage, Pancetta, and spicy Marinara Sauce.

    [​IMG]

    And he inhaled it.

    I ordered the Rosemary Chicken Flatbread...Vidalia Onion Spread, Artichokes, Kalamata Olives, Shaved Red Onion, and Feta.

    [​IMG]


    It was good but I don't know that I'd order it again. There was a lot of chicken on there and everything went together great though.

    Skyler ordered the Margherita Flatbread...Fresh Vine-ripened Tomatoes, Mozzarella, House-made Marinara Sauce, fresh Basil, and drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    [​IMG]

    She loves these but picks off all of the basil.

    And Cary ordered the Vegetarian Minestrone...with Ditalini Pasta.

    [​IMG]

    He seems to order this every time we are here...so I assume it's good.

    Tyler always gets the Over Baked Chicken alla Parmigiana...Breaded Chicken Breast with Marinara Sauce topped with Melted Mozzarella over Spaghetti.

    [​IMG]

    He always loves it here also. He has no complaints.

    I ordered the special of the day which was a Pork Shank on mashed potatoes with a tomato based sauce.

    [​IMG]

    It was so tender it just pulled right away from the bone. I was very glad I had decided to order this.

    Skyler ordered the Wood Grilled Chickem and Penne Pasta...with House-made Four-Cheese Sauce garnished with Pecorino Romano Cheese and Parsley...with the chicken on the side.

    [​IMG]

    She ate all her pasta and some of the chicken. The chicken was pretty bland without the sauce.

    Cary ordered the Grilled Flat Iron Steakwith macaroni & cheese in a Chianti Wine Reduction.

    [​IMG]

    Which I now see is served with potatoes rather than mac & cheese. But he really enjoyed his meal here. The steak was cooked to his liking and the sauce was good with the steak and the pasta.

    For dessert, since we were on the Fantasmic plan, we were supposed to get a dessert sampler but we asked if we could order separately and he said that was ok.

    So Tyler ordered the Chocolate and Cherry Tart...Made with Ghirardelli ® Creamy Chocolate infused with Morello Cherries served with Cherry Coulis topped with Whipped Cream

    [​IMG]

    And it was very chocolaty and good.

    Skyler ordered the Vanilla Gelato.

    [​IMG]


    Which was gelato.

    Cary actually ordered the sampler platter.

    [​IMG]

    It was Miniature versions of Mama’s favorite Desserts Valencia Blood Orange Cake, Lemon Cheesecake topped with Passion Fruit Pearls, and Tiramisù. He liked them all...it is the Lemon Cheesecake (far left), tiramisu, and then the blood orange cake. It was just enough of each to get a good taste.

    And I ordered the Traditional Cannoli...House-made creamy Cannoli Filling with a hint of Citrus and dusted with Cocoa Powder

    [​IMG]


    I couldnt tell you which Cannoli I liked better...Tony's or Mama's...they were both good and each had a little different flavor.

    All in all, we like Mama Melrose. We have been here a lot and will probably come back in the future. I am hearing they are messing with the Fantasmic Package again and trying to give less for more again so I don;t know if the package will be what we choose in the future or not but we will most likely be back.

    Our meal here lasted about an hour and a half and our total was $191.70.

    After lunch around 1:08pm we checked out the area.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We walked through Rizzo's but it was already closed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Skye loves this snowman...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We headed over to use our fast passes for Star Tours.

    [​IMG]

    This was going on while we were getting through the line and Cary wanted to stop and watch but he roots for the wrong team so we had to move along.

    [​IMG]

    We walked right through and had a great ride then headed across the park.

    [​IMG]

    The Indiana Jones show was already going on and was full so we kept walking.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Super hot and Dinosaur Gerties is closed???

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We stopped at Peevy's Polar Pipeline for some drinks.


    [​IMG]

    We got a Blue Raspberry, a Coke, and a Lemonade Frozen Drink. Somehow I don't have pictures??? They were cool and refreshing. We used 3 snack credits but it would have been $13.74.

    Skyler went to the Trolly Car Cafe while we did that and got a Strawberry Acai for 1 snack credit. It would have been $5.32.

    [​IMG]

    Skyler teased this guy becasue now she's too big for him to catch her.

    [​IMG]

    We kept moving forward.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And caught the Storm Troopers March.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we continued over towaeds the Launch Bay.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We decided to go through the show again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While we were waiting Skyler got pulled out to be interrogated.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She had to show her identification (magic band). They slowly let them go when they decided they were no threat. Until the last one...

    [​IMG]

    And they took her away...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And they finally let her go.

    [​IMG]

    Luckily they didn't notice her R2-D2 bow because they decided she was in support of their cause. It was pretty entertaining.

    So we headed in to the movie and then in to see the Jawas.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We love the Jawas. They are so much fun! I heard they are gone now but they were a really cool meet.

    Then we went to see Tyler's favorite.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was cool!

    Then we headed back to use our Frozen fast passes.

    [​IMG]

    We got there not much before the return time but waited a bit still. Normally I wouldn't think this was a good use of a fast pass but i wasn't sure if it would be crazy or not. and we knew we wanted to see it. We all enjoy it. Tyler tried not to sing but every time he ends up singing! And of course Skyler could sing the whole sound track for you if you'd like.

    After the show, we headed to the boat.

    We walked out of the park and stood in the short line for the boat that was on it's way in. We have walked it before but it was hot and the boat was able to be seen so we waited. We arrived at the Boardwalk shortly after.

    [​IMG]

    We found a seat in the lobby and relaxed. The boys went to change.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We checked into Flying Fish at 5:55pm and we were taken to our seat just inside the dining area.

    [​IMG]

    The new decor is much fancier than the old Boardwalk theme that was here before. Skye says she liked the old better.

    The AbracadaBar was where the old bakery was at and the bathrooms are shared.

    [​IMG]

    I love the silverware here!

    [​IMG]

    ...and the menu...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The bread was brought...and the kids ate it but it was not their favorite.

    [​IMG]

    We all had drinks and water also. Our waiter was Danny.

    For appetizer I had what the receipt says was the Tuna Appetizer and it is not on the Disney Menu anymore.

    [​IMG]

    And I'm not even sure what to tell you it was other than tuna. I can tell you it was really good!

    Cary had the Mile Zero Shrimp Cocktail...Horseradish Aioli, Elderflower Mignonette, blood orange oil.



    [​IMG]

    And he really liked it. Fried shrimp and a sauce...what's not to like?

    And Tyler got the Kurobuta Pork Belly...shank croquette, royal gala apple slaw, bing cherry gastrique, shirred quail egg.

    [​IMG]

    Being Tyler he was weirded out by the egg. But he did like the parts of it he ate. The pork belly was very tender. I tasted the egg with the fritter and it was very rich.

    Skyler decided on a kid's meal for her entree so she did not get an entree. She ended up with a Kid's Mickey Pasta with Marinara and Skinny Green Beans.

    The pasta is shaped like Mickey heads and as we know, everything tastes better shaped like Mickey! She loves the green beans at Disney. She cleaned the plate.

    I had the Maine Lobster Nero Pasta - golden tomato sauce, young artichokes, fennel pollen.

    [​IMG]

    It's on the Allearsnet menu but not the Disnet menu so not sure if it is still being served. It was really good but I didn't really notice the pasta being any different than normal non-squid ink pasta. The Lobster was a large piece on top of the pasta. The squid ink is supposedly more salty but I didn't notice so it must have been offset by the rest of the dish. I ordered it becasue it was different and lobster but I was very glad I did. It was a great dish. No one else would try it though.

    Cary got the Wagyu Filet Mignon - fingerling potatoes, asparagus, rainbow carrots, demi glace.

    Medium well and with the sauce on the side. He really enjoyed it.

    Tyler got the Wagyu Filet Mignon - fingerling potatoes, asparagus, rainbow carrots, demi glace.

    Medium rare with fries substituted for everything other than the meat! And he loved his also!

    For dessert Cary ordered the Florida Reef - lemon tart, toasted meringue, Florida citrus salad, ruby red grapefruit sorbet.

    [​IMG]

    It was really good and we all liked it. The grapefruit sorbet was tart but the "sand" was sweet so it all blended well. The meringues were eaten by Skyler again and the lemon tart was not too tart!

    I had the Blueberries, Limes and Sea Shells - mascarpone cream, blueberry lime compote, hibiscus meringue, rye bourbon caramel.

    [​IMG]

    And YUM! This was great and let me tell you, we practically licked the plate! Maybe pushing Narcoossee's Almond Cheesecake down a notch!

    Tyler had the Under the Sea - Valrhona Manjari chocolate, chocolate coral sponge, pistachio sand, dehydrated milk foam, tasting of three sea salts.

    [​IMG]

    This was fun. The sponge is cake. The white is the milk foam...it was sweet. The sand was the same sand. The little chocolate half spheres are like a thick mousse. It was good and fun.

    We were there just over an hour and a half. Danny was efficient. Not super friendly but enough, drinks were filled quickly, the meal was paced nicely. Our table was not far into the room but we didn't feel left out of the atmosphere. The new decor is beautiful, more of an elegant place now but still not stuffy. I did miss my favorite potato crusted snapper but I was certainly not disappointed.

    We ended up using 6 credits and paid for Skye out of pocket. Our total was $292.84.

    After we finished up dinner we sat on the Boardwalk for a little while.

    Then we headed to the bat dock.

    And we walked into the Fantasmic stands at 8:47pm.

    [​IMG]

    We were towards the back of the stands but the reserved seating is now in the center section (it used to be off to the side) so we did end up with great seats.

    We had a little time to spare. The wave came by a time or two. It was hot and humid still and it was wanting to rain real badly.

    And then the sky opened and it starting pouring bit, fat, drops! We had our ponchos and umbrella so we put them on and headed out with the masses. It was slow going but since it was so hot out still, it didn't really matter right then. We headed to our bus stop, lines were crazy long and at 9:55pm a charter bus showed up for our comfy ride home.

    [​IMG]

    And when we arrived at the hotel, Skye and I went to the room and found that Baby Dory was still upside down...our Mousekeeper obviously is not familiar with the brand she works for...LOL!

    [​IMG]

    Cary and Tyler went to the food court and got a large pepperoni pizza with garlic bread knots.

    [​IMG]

    It was plenty for all of us for a snack and it was fresh and good. They were there just in time because they cashed out at 10:56pm and paid cash in the amount of $18.88.

    We ate, watched Cars 2 and then we all passed out for the night.

    Day #5 - June 25, 2017 dawned and we up, ready to head out and at the bus stop at 7:29am. The sign says the next bus is at 7:31am. Tyler was not ready when we were so it was just the three of us and he'd come along shortly. The bus arrived at 7:32am. We arrived at Animal Kingdom at 7:32am.

    Love the way the face painting is displayed here but I have no idea how anyone gets their face painted in that kind of weather!

    Tyler still was not here so we jumped in line for the Na'vi River Journey for the first time. Tyler had already ridden one of the nights he came over alone after we went to bed.

    Tyler was there when we got off. The stand by line for Flight of Passage was all the way back towards Africa and the time was listed at 3 1/2 hours. So we looked around some more.

    Tyler checked for Banshees and of course there were none. And we decided to head into Africa.
