World Showcase Update – Mexico, La Hacienda de San Angel Review, San Angel Inn Review, Margaritas

by josh on July 14, 2013

Mexico is a lot of people’s favorite World Showcase Pavilion for a number of reasons.  In no particular order:

  • Margaritas
  • Margaritas
  • Air-conditioning
  • A ride

But there’s a lot going on outside the great pyramid too.  One of Mexico’s two sit-down restaurants sits outside overlooking the Lagoon.

La Hacienda de San Angel is owned and operated by the same company that runs San Angel Inn, La Cantina de San Angel, La Cava del Tequila, and the restaurants/bars/eateries at Coronado Springs Resort.

The restaurant, which operates from 4pm – close daily, doubles as indoor seating for La Cantina de San Angel earlier in the day.  If you choose to eat your quick service food inside, they’ll clear you out by 3:30pm.

Views of the Lagoon are great from some tables, okay from most, and nonexistent from others.  Here around 7pm, the blinds are drawn and there isn’t much of a view at all.

A great view of IllumiNations is certainly possible, but far from guaranteed.  I’m not sure I would make a reservation with the express purpose of seeing the show from your table.  Like Tokyo Dining, a great view would certainly be a nice bonus if you make a reservation around 8pm.  Request a window table at check-in and let them know you’re willing to wait a little longer if necessary.  They’ll probably give you the, “We can’t make any guarantees and seat people as they arrive…” spiel, but they’re usually good at fulfilling requests for window seats.

Disney, somewhat disingenuously, advertises the opposite on their site: “Tall windows overlooking the lagoon offer diners prime views of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.”  That’s true if you’re dining during IllumiNations at a window overlooking the lagoon.

But that’s much less true if you’re seated at a booth away from the windows.

Or surrounded by walls, as the case may be.

Unlike Rose & Crown, which has a separate patio for IllumiNations viewing for those sitting inside, La Hacienda has no such thing.

Menus:


The menu offers just a handful of entrees.  Lisa was relieved that we weren’t deciding between 75.4 different items, but you might find the lack of choices limiting.  There are no $8.99 tacos, burritos, chimichangas, etc. like you might find at your favorite local restaurant.

The margarita menu is similar to the ones found at San Angel Inn and La Cava with a couple unique takes that both look similar.  The far margarita is the Mango Blueberry Basil – Coconut Rum, Tequila, orange juice, mango puree, blueberries, and basil served on the rocks with a Tijin chili powder rim – $13.50.  Closer, the Orange Mango Fire – Tequila, ginger liqueur, orange juice, mango puree, fresh lime juice, a hint of Tabasco sauce, served on the rocks with a Tijin chili powder rim.  Despite being similar in composition, they could not have tasted more dissimilar.  Well, that’s an exaggeration.  But they tasted pretty different, okay?  Lisa’s Mango Blueberry Basil tasted little of tequila and was potentially better balanced – sweeter and without much of a kick.  Mine was entirely unbalanced with a strong tequila flavor tempered only slightly by the orange juice and spiciness from the Tabasco sauce.  Since my drinks at home tend to be 9/10th alcohol, I was okay with this, but I’d be surprised if the general population didn’t come up coughing.  Having never tried the margaritas before, I couldn’t tell you if this is the norm or just “luck.”

I’m happy to report La Hacienda de San Angel and their quick service arm, La Cantina de San Angel, did away with those ridiculous multicolored tortilla chips some number of months ago.  The chips always seemed to be extremely stale, despite “not being.”  I’m not worldly enough to be able to tell you if the multicolored iteration is how they’re actually served in Mexico, but I think 99.5% of the people dining at La Hacienda will prefer these fresh, crispy, slightly salty chips.  The red salsa has a good kick to it, while the salsa verde is mild.

After some brief deliberation, we decided on the “La Hacienda” Parrillada (serves two people) – Mixed grill offering New York Strip, chicken al pastor, chorizo, and vegetables, served with beans and fresh salsa.  I’m not sure the picture captures the size of the platter – it’s immense with a large chicken breast, 12-ounce(?) strip steak, 15+ chorizo, and a ton of corn along with roasted zucchini and some peppers.  I have not heard good things about the Del Mar platter.

The Hacienda was served alongside some mostly forgettable, bland Spanish (Mexican) rice.

The black beans, sprinkled with a little cheese on top, were flavorful as far as black beans go – not that mushy gunk that sometimes arrives.

Two layers of small, thin tortillas arrived alongside everything should you wish to form little tacos.  As an American, I don’t know how to eat this stuff any other way.

The chicken was prepared perfectly and came surprisingly moist with a sort of honey glaze on it.  I am not an expert on much of anything, cooking included, but “Al pastor” is usually pork.

The steak, cooked to a medium rare, had a basil salsa topping that added additional flavor.  Quality-wise, it was more like a medium quality sirloin than a New York, but there was a lot of it and it had good flavor, even if it was a bit tougher than you’d expect from a New York strip.

The chorizo are a much spicier version of the prototypical American cocktail wiener.  These packed a bite, but weren’t overwhelmingly spicy.  I didn’t have much use for the vegetables, which were kind of mushy and didn’t have much flavor.

There’s a lot more corn than meets the eye and it’s topped with cheese and some kind of chipotle sour cream on top.  I’m not sure I cared much for it personally, but the corn kept a bit of its crunch and you may enjoy it more than I did.  The corn may have been pickled or something, which may have been the reason I stuck my nose up at it.  It definitely had a “different” flavor about it.

The Hacienda was a ton of food – not enough for four hungry adults probably, but you should certainly be able to feed three hungry people with one of these platters, especially with the chip/salsa prelude.  I’m not sure a “picky child” would care much for the flavors here.  It’s not exactly a plain grilled chicken breast and mini hot dogs.  Overall, I was pleased with the meal and thought it was a good value for the money, all things considered.  In some ways, the platter is similar to the all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style buffets like Garden Grill and Whispering Canyon Cafe’s Skillet.  Granted it doesn’t come with “free” seconds, but I can’t imagine two people demolishing this and wishing they had more steak.

Mid-meal, I coaxed Lisa into ordering the only margarita I didn’t have a picture of – the Rosita – Rose infusuion, Tequila, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice served on the rocks with salt on the rim.  Thinking about it now, I think I do have a picture somewhere.  Anyway, the more the merrier.  Lisa took a sip, stuck her tongue out, and said “this tastes like turpentine.”  She usually reserves this face for when I ask her, “How do I look?”  So I knew it was bad.  I’m not sure I would go as far as turpentine, but it did have an earthy quality to it and would we would rank it pretty low on the list of best margaritas here in Mexico.

Service was fine, but ultimately forgettable.  It was pretty clear that we were “just another table” as staff went through the motions of seating us, taking our orders, and delivering the food.  You may have better luck.  La Hacienda is another restaurant that suffers a bit from the closeness of the tables.  You can see that the table for six next to us is about a foot away.  Still, it’s a bit better than San Angel Inn, where you’re lucky to be six inches away from the table next door.  Actually, this was the second table they offered us.  The first was weaseled in between two pillars in the far left corner of the restaurant.  I asked nicely if they had another table and luckily, they did.

While the restaurant might be described as sleek, I’m not sure it’s wow-inducing and the view is YMMV.

La Hacienda de San Angel is harder to quantify than most.  On one hand, grabbing margaritas by the window for IllumiNations would be a special night.  On the other hand, that table is not guaranteed and the menu is limited.  Service is best described as proficient and impersonal.  I thought the food was quite good and there was a lot of it.  And La Hacienda hasn’t raised the prices on those Parrilladas since the restaurant opened three years ago.  They’ve always been $49.95.  I guess what I’m saying is that if you’re only spending one day at Epcot, I’m not sure La Hacienda would be the restaurant I would pick.  But it’s worth trying.  One other caveat – they’re one of the only restaurants that doesn’t accept Tables in Wonderland or an Annual Pass discount.  But that may make them a better choice on one of the days Tables in Wonderland isn’t accepted: Mothers Day, Easter Sunday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Back outside to the limited outdoor seating section for La Cantina de San Angel.  This fills up quickly in the afternoon.  The door inside to La Hacienda is located in the outdoor seating area.  Forget about sitting here after 7pm when the table squatters arrive waiting for IllumiNations to begin.

There are additional tables up the stairs and outside the pyramid.

Larger: http://www.easywdw.com/reports9/lacantina.jpg.  The menu hasn’t changed since last August.  Entree portions remain small, but they do load you up on the same tortilla chips and salsa you’ll get inside at La Hacienda.

The margaritas here and at the outdoor margarita bar are, for the most part, hit or miss.  This Frozen Lime Margarita will set you back $9.50.  It had a strong tequila taste that wasn’t at all unpleasant, tempered a bit by sugar and lime juice.  Cold and refreshing, it’ll last a while whether you’re enjoying it with your food or on your way to Norway.

The Frozen Passion Fruit Margarita, also $9.50, had a much creamier texture and tasted much less of tequila.  Again, your mileage may vary with these as they’re extremely inconsistent.  If I didn’t know better, I’d tell you this was non-alcoholic.

The outdoor margarita bar sells similar margaritas and may be a better choice if lines are long at La Cantina.

I’d skip the itty-bitty flight of unnamed tequilas – we’re not talking 4.5 ounces of straight tequila here.  It’s more like two ounces combined.

Unless the line inside at La Cava is absurdly long, your $14.50 is better spent there.

Inside, you’ll find Mexico’s other restaurant, San Angel Inn.  The atmosphere is arguably better than La Hacienda as it overlooks a raging volcano and the Gran Fiesta ride if you’re lucky enough to sit near the water.  On the other hand, much like La Hacienda, those seated in back enjoy a potentially lesser experience.  Menus:

Lunch:

Dinner:

Drinks:

San Angel Inn is attached to La Cantina de San Angel and they should be able to bring you whatever drink or tequila you want from that menu if you don’t see something you like.  Otherwise, the seven margaritas offered are identical to what you’d receive at La Cava.

San Angel, for a long time, was considered to be one of the worst restaurants on property.  It has improved considerably over the last couple of years and I’ve written positively about past lunches I’ve enjoyed.  Today, we’ll take a look back at a dinner I have neglected to write about because the pictures aren’t great.  I ran into Mario (you may recognize the TriSeb username from the comments) on the Epcot monorail back in December and he was nice enough to invite me to dinner at San Angel Inn on the Candlelight Processional Dining Package, so we have a lot of food to take a look at.

Even when La Hacienda served their “stale” multicolored chips, San Angel provided guests with these much better (in my opinion) fresh tortilla chips.  Tostitos are long gone, thankfully.

The $12.50 Coctel de Camaron – Acapulco-style shrimp cocktail, served with spicy tomato sauce, fried flour chicharron, avocado, and lime.

It’s basically a glass full of small shrimp in a thin, spicy sauce.  They had a nice kick to them and although the shrimp were small, there were a lot of them.  As good as the shrimp were, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the chicharron, which are lightly fried pork rinds.  These were topped with what is probably the same spicy sauce as the shrimp.  With about a dozen rinds on top of the shrimp, this is an easily shareable appetizer that is a nice complement to the complimentary chips and salsa.

These pictures are pre-flash and as you may be aware, San Angel Inn is extremely dark.  So we sort of have blurry blobs on a plate.  A San Angel Inn mainstay, these are the Tostadas de Tinga – Pulled chicken seasoned with roasted tomato and chipotle, served on tostadas with black refried beans, green tomatillo sause, queso fresco and sour cream – 10.50.  Also very good with complex flavor, the pulled chicken is amazing and the tostadas provide a nice crunch.  Depending on your entree choices, the appetizers may be superfluous with the chips, but both of these are very good on their own.  You might even be able to get away with the Tostadas as an entree if you’re not particularly hungry.

People will occasionally ask about sharing meals or about whether it’s “okay to just order dessert.”  The bottom line is that you can order whatever you want – they’re not going to kick you out.  People share appetizers, entrees, and desserts all the time.  Seating two people that share one meal is not a whole lot different than seating a single person that orders the same items.  When we were at La Hacienda, a couple ordered margaritas, munched on the chips and salsa, and left without ordering anything else, for example.  In fact, they were so chilly in the restaurant that they donned their plastic Mickey ponchos mid-meal.  This sort of behavior is probably frowned upon, just like booking Be Our Guest Restaurant for cupcakes will not make your serve particularly happy, even if he smiles and exclaims, “Oh how fun!”  The reality is that he’s probably in the back cussing you out to his confederates.  But do what you’re comfortable with, tip well ($10 on your 4 x $4 cupcakes for example), and nobody will care in the long run.

Ordering three courses is a lot of food on the Candlelight Processional dining package, so I went with the Camarones a la Diabla – Roasted diabla-style shrimp with poblano rice, served over yuca puree and cascabel chile sauce – $26.  Ordinarily, I tend to shy away from shrimp and scallops because the portion size tends to be on the small side.  This came with six large shrimp in a deliciously spicy sauce.  More filling than you might expect (and hence the smaller portion), I enjoyed them a lot, though I’m not sure they’re a tremendous value for the money.  Still, most any Mexican restaurant would charge you in the neighborhood of $16 for a similar dish.  One thing that has really improved at San Angel is the attention to detail and fresh, homemade ingredients.  You can really tell nothing comes out of a can.

The shrimp were served with poblano rice, which is a pilaf-style rice made with poblano chilies and cilantro. Spicy on its own,I happily mixed it with the sauce.

Mario ordered the Carne Asada – New York strip served with cheese enchilada, black refried beans, red bell pepper, onions, Mexican rice, and guacamole – $28.50.  This is the sort of item I’d order if I was going with a single entree – it’s a nice variety of items and more food than most people could hope to consume.

Pollo a las Rajas – Grilled chicken breast served with red peppers and onion cream sauce, poblano rice, and queso fresco – $23.50.  A heavier-than-you-might-expect meal with the cream sauce, the chicken was tender and flavorful and the rice helped soak up the creamy sauce.

Churros, which it looks like they took off the menu (unless they’re on the Kids’ menu)!

Crema Bavaria – Creamy Bavarian mousse served with mixed berries, cinnamon, orange liqueur and vanilla sauce – $8. It tastes and “feels” lighter than it probably is with a subtle caramel flavor. It’s pretty good, but I’m not sure I’d pay $8 for it individually.

Mousse de Chocolate – Chocolate mousse and almond brittle candy – $8.  More like ice cream than mousse, I’m not sure this one stood out as memorable.

Finally, Pastel de Queso con Cajeta – Cheesecake with caramel sauce cajeta – $8.  A few bites of decadent cheesecake, this is the richest and densest dessert offered.  Not overly sweet like a lot of cheesecakes, it would be an excellent end to a meal.

Like La Hacienda, San Angel Inn has a somewhat limited menu.  You may want to look them both over and decide which sounds best if you’re planning to visit one or the other.  I personally prefer San Angel Inn for the ambiance, food, and (in my opinion) better margaritas.  Lunch is also less expensive and less crowded.

Speaking of margaritas, inside the Pavilion is La Cava del Tequila.  San Angel is in the back with the entrance to Gran Fiesta Tour to the left.

My personal favorites are the Jalapeno and Blood Orange.

They still offer $5 shots to their Twitter followers.  Risking another email from their ridiculous PR department (lol), I would remind you that you don’t actually have to follow them on Twitter to get the $5 shot – they don’t check.  And these are pretty serious shots, served with their “sangrita” and a lime.  Sangrita is sort of a tomato salsa that’s supposed to be used as a “chaser” after drinking the tequila.  I’m not too fond of it personally.

If you prefer to pound your shots back in your room or drink a margarita out of a sippy cup on the bus ride to Epcot, Mexico offers tequila by the bottle.

A 375ml bottle of Cuervo Especial runs $13.95 here versus $14.95 for a 750ml bottle at Total Wine.  That’s actually $2 less than it used to be.  A 750ml of Sauza Commemorativo runs $35.95 here versus $21.99 at Total Wine.  Pricing isn’t absurd, especially compared to some of the prices you’ll see just off property.  Try to stick to ABC stores if you can.  Total Wine also ships.

That’s what’s going on in Mexico these days as we take a look across the water at what’s coming up next.

Have to agree about San Angel’s improvement in food. Three years ago *yikes* but on our recent trip we really enjoyed dinner with a nice view of the river and volcano. The waitstaff was much friendlier as well.

Tricia July 14, 2013 at 11:48 am

The pollo dish was my absolute favorite meal at Disney.

snarkymama July 14, 2013 at 12:12 pm

In your opening list you forgot another reason for the reason Mexico is many people’s favorite pavilion: MARGARITAS!

LizD July 14, 2013 at 12:58 pm

Another great post. You’ve really been cranking them out lately!

Bunny July 14, 2013 at 1:13 pm

It’s been way too long since I’ve made it in inside the pyramid…even before I was of legal drinking age, so…yeah. Lots to experience during our next trip!

runningourshow July 14, 2013 at 1:16 pm

So if you’re on the ddp, do you just get the “dining plan special” or can you order a la carte as well?

Dan Young July 14, 2013 at 1:37 pm

I noticed the improvement in the San Angel Inn about 2 years ago, when they stopped serving out of the bag Tostitos with a bland tomato based sauce, and instead served fresh warm chips with a sauce that had a pretty good kick. The rest of the menu was similarly improved. I just had the coctel de cameron that you pictured – incredibly yummy! Yeah, they do pack you in tightly, but for that atmosphere and that food, I’ll take a bit of a crowd.

And the Cantina is one of my newest favorites on the Lagoon. Like you said, ask for a window view and be willing to wait for it – it’s very much worth it!

MousePerks July 14, 2013 at 1:59 pm

One note about the discounts at La Hacienda de San Angel: Even though they don’t have any discounts for TiW or AP, they actually do have a DVC discount of 10%.

Also, San Angel Inn has a discount for all 3, but the AP discount is only at Lunch.

Valerie July 14, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Great update!! Thank you for the pics! My husband wanted to eat at SAI, just for the ambience, but I didnt think he would like the menu. I just read him descriptions and showed him your pictures. Now we are going to switch restaurants and share the La Hacienda.

Chris July 14, 2013 at 2:20 pm

We had never gone to the Inn de San Angel prior to last summer but absolutely loved it. I’m talking “one of the best meals I ever had” good. While some may think that is overstating things (and probably is), the food is excellent. The tlacoyos de chilorio are hard to pronounce but UN-BE-LIEVABLE. We get them every time we go. We had the carne asada twice and it was terrific once and ok the second time. We will have to try the pollo a la rajas and the tostadas de tinga the next time we go. Service has ranged from borderline bad to excellent.

KatieJane July 14, 2013 at 3:35 pm

Either I was EXTREMELY lucky, or your definition of a “few” (3) years is off, because I definitely had an AMAZING meal at San Angel with my (then husband) ex. He had the mole poblano and I’m pretty sure I had the pollo a las rajas (or equivalent at the time) and both were awesome and freshly prepared. Also had amazing service with a handwritten anniversary card and free dessert! Plus, you can’t beat that atmosphere!!

Oh, and a big THANK YOU for the new server, and all the new updates!!!

Meghan (affableolive) July 14, 2013 at 4:23 pm

Just switched our San Angel Inn reservation from dinner to lunch. Looks a little bit more our speed. Thanks for being helpful, as always.

goofyjoe July 14, 2013 at 4:37 pm

I really liked the fish dish at La Hacienda – very fresh-tasting and filling. It felt more “authentic Mexican” than most Tex-Mex style food I’ve had.

Dan(Cardinals314) July 14, 2013 at 4:54 pm

I had the Blood Orange Margarita this past March. I asked the bartender if he could make it frozen, which he did. It was a great pick.

Ellie July 14, 2013 at 5:53 pm

We only spent $70.29 with tax at Jiko on 3 appetizers, a glass of wine, and the cheese selection dessert. Our server Patty pointedly told us that Jiko had some fantastic entrees for the next time we visited. We’ve split things elsewhere with more friendly service.

Annie July 14, 2013 at 6:04 pm

Josh,
A little trick I learned from some food bloggers at an event: if there is more than one of you apparently, the light an iPhone gives off when on a white screen, when held directly near the food, creates a perfect fill light for food in a low-light situation.

I am no photographer, but saw the results and it works!

:-)

Annie July 14, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Should clarify: have the other person hold the iPhone with white lit-up screen near the food while you shoot the picture with your camera.

Brian Noble July 14, 2013 at 6:14 pm

“I have not heard good things about the Del Mar platter.”

Interesting. Maureen and I had one last October during Food & Wine, and really enjoyed it. That might have been due to the Margaritas, but each of us had only one so probably not.

Also: Yes, San Angel has definitely gotten better in the past several years.

RebeccaMcK July 14, 2013 at 6:22 pm

“Mothers Day, Easter Sunday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.” I was just wondering, as you mentioned those are the days the TiW discount isn’t offered (or AP discount, whichever it was)….are those also the blackout days for the AP? I saw someone (maybe dusty) mention two holidays in a recent post where the AP is blocked out (or maybe the Florida resident pass or whatever). Just wondered, if someone could answer – if it’s not ALL the holidays listed, maybe tell me which ones are blocked. Thanks.

Tracey July 14, 2013 at 7:06 pm

Love San Angel! We ate there last summer and we had the best service of our 12 day trip.

marcy July 14, 2013 at 8:13 pm

So if we are the on the dining plan, and my husband orders the $49 entree that serves 2, am I forced to share with him? Or can I order my own choice of entree?

John July 14, 2013 at 8:33 pm

I admit it: I have ADR for 7:45pm with the hope of seeing Illuminations at 9.

Garrett July 14, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Marcy– you would have to share– ordering that counts as 2 entrees. At least it did the last time we ate there in December.

Kitty July 15, 2013 at 1:32 am

Hi Josh, another great update :)
We’re eating at San Angel Inn this Sep and so it’s good to hear about the food there. I don’t have a lot of experience with Mexican food, so yor photos and explanations were very helpful!
Thanks again Josh

Safroim July 15, 2013 at 4:44 am

We had lunch at San Angel Inn on our November 2011 trip. It was really, really good. It’s on top of my list of places to get back to.

Disney4ever July 15, 2013 at 5:25 am

We have eaten at the San Angel Inn and found it to be just so so. It was 2 years ago, so perhaps they have improved since then, the mole was awful, and the goat cheese caramel on the dessert was so bad, we couldn’t eat it. Then we had the DDP, so we felt the need to order the dessert, this time we will not do the DDP based on your recommendation and some research. I think I would much prefer an app or drinks for my money, than dessert.
I believe the corn you ate at La Hacienda is topped with mayo, lime juice and a Mexican crumbling cheese. I like it, obviously you didn’t.
Thanks for another post of some of our restaurant choices for our upcoming trip. Any chance you will be reviewing Yak and Yeti table service, or Be our Guest, or Crystal Palace or O’Hana in the very near future? Our trip is in Oct, and would love some good suggestions.

Dorothy July 15, 2013 at 7:19 am

I’m confused about which QS resturaunt uses the indoor seating from La Hacienda during the day. As you face the lagoon, there’s a QS resturaunt on the left and on the right. I think La Cantina is the one on the left. Or do they both use the indoor seating? Or is it 2 “arms” of the same resturaunt?

Greg July 15, 2013 at 8:35 am

I’m going to have to correct your description of the topping on the steak at Hacienda. I’m pretty sure that is cilantro-based instead of basil. Feel free to consult with me with any culinary questions you might have, Josh. ;-)

weepstah July 15, 2013 at 10:13 am

Mexico became my favorite Epcot pavilion the moment I walked into Plaza de los Amigos, and that was 30 years ago. I’m a sucker for twilight themed interior design.

Tim July 15, 2013 at 11:31 am

Do they serve guacamole by itself as an appetizer or side dish?

RebeccaMcK July 15, 2013 at 2:03 pm

@Disney4ever
You could do a search on this website (or look up articles on the right margin of this homepage) to find Josh’s comments about Be Our Guest, Yak & Yeti and the others. He has written about them before. They might not be very recent but they’re hopefully findable and would help you learn about those places and their food.

RebeccaMcK July 15, 2013 at 2:07 pm

^ That is, if the search button/field would work properly. @Josh, has something happened? I typed Be Our Guest dinner in the search box at the bottom right of the page, hit enter and nothing came up except the home page again.

Disney4ever July 16, 2013 at 5:21 am

Thanks RebeccaMcK, I did try that, it brings up every mention of the words. I am very familiar with Disney, just looking for a recent update as things/food changes frequently.

Jimmy N July 16, 2013 at 8:27 am

San Angel looks like a lovely place for a Honeymoon meal +1

Bob July 16, 2013 at 12:29 pm
Bob July 16, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Disney4ever: Sorry, my last response missed the request for ‘Crystal Palace or O’Hana’ as well, but a search didn’t come up with any new blog posts in 2013 for either of these (either spelling of ‘Ohana’). I expanded the search to 2012 and didn’t find any blog posts for either restaurant then either.

TriSeb July 17, 2013 at 3:13 pm

Thanks Josh. My boys (TriSeb) have been asking me what ever happened to the post about our evening with too much food :-) . Our dinner was fun even tho we froze out once we made it to the event. Like I mentioned before, I ended buying a heavy knit ‘sweater’ because of the freezing wind. Yes, WDW does get that way… Josh and I were both scoffing at the idea of it being cold… but after the CLP we both realized we were almost human Popsicles (josh split and I bought the “sweater”). The family enjoyed your company and this blog post is a very kewl memory reminder of the fun we had last Dec.

BoSoxGal July 24, 2013 at 3:07 pm

“…tip well ($10 on your 4 x $4 cupcakes for example), and nobody will care in the long run.”

Yes! Sound advice Josh!
