Epcot Drink Update with Yorkshire Fish and Chips, Bigger La Cava Margaritas, Chicken Nugget Cocktails, and Lavender Beer

We’ll visit Epcot on a relatively busy Saturday in May to try some drinks around World Showcase.

I’ve long been a proponent of the Yorkshire County Fish & Chips, now $10.99 for two pieces along with thick cut fries.

Review: The Polite Pig at Disney Springs Round 3

This is the website’s third review of The Polite Pig, one of the newest eateries to open at Disney Springs and one of few barbecue outlets on property. I wrote a review of the quick service based on a test meal before opening here, and then followed that up with a review from opening day, here. At the conclusion of the last review, I stated that I was “iffier than I was expecting on The Polite Pig” and “would return in a couple of weeks to see where we’re at.” So here we are.

Since the previous reviews are “literally” from last month, I won’t spend a lot of time reiterating what The Polite Pig is and isn’t. But the space is very casual and perhaps noisier than you would expect. You’ll place your order at the counter and the food will be delivered. Because of that, they’ll ask about a tip before you finish paying, which could add 10%-20% to the cost of the meal. They do take an Annual Passholder or Cast Member discount for 10% off and unlike what they were saying on day one, the meal is one quick service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

Review: Afternoon Tea at Grand Floridian’s Garden View Tea Room

Afternoon Tea is offered at the Garden View Tea Room daily. On Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturday, reservations are available between 2pm and 5pm. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, it’s available from noon to 5pm.

Beginning at 3pm daily, music alternates between the piano player on the ground floor and the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra on the second floor above where tea takes place. I ordinarily love listening to the orchestra, but I found the music mildly distracting while trying to enjoy tea. But the piano music was particularly calming.

Pandora: World of Avatar Overarching Review and Picture Dump

Wider and uncensored: http://www.easywdw.com/reports14/pandora_panorama.jpg

Here’s what I’ve already written about Pandora: World of Avatar, each of which goes into more detail:

But I have more than 200 photos I haven’t yet posted and once Pandora opens, I’ll be focusing on what operation is actually like. So I thought I would take this opportunity to discuss what I think the Land offers and how it fits into Walt Disney World, however vapid those thoughts may be.

Geyser Point Bar and Grill Review at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Construction Update

We’ll take some time to visit Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, where construction continues in a number of areas, including on bungalow-style cabins out in front of the resort and on an expansive pool addition.

But first, we’ll check out Geyser Point Bar & Grill, the newish quick service/lounge hybrid that opened waterside back in February.
