FOODIE (and/or) DRINK FRIDAY! KRAKATOA PUNCH!

On our stop at the Polynesian Village Resort when we did our lounge hopping tour, we were outside on the Tiki Terrace since it was before Trader Sam's indoor area opened for the day.  Since it was so beautiful outside, we had no complaints at all.

My friend Cathy and I both ordered the KRAKATOA PUNCH which contains Jerry Spiced Rum, Pyrat XO Reserve Rum, Orgeat (Almond)Sam's Gorilla Grog and Hibiscus Grenadine.  It was really yummy.




If you are inside and you order it, you get it inside the specialty glass/mug/cup etc.  Outside, it comes in a plastic cup with the color changing ice cube inside it.  It's just as delicious.........even in plastic!!
When we were ready to leave, we just had to take our receipt into Trader Sam's and get out item and it was all boxed up.

This is a two-sided design.  Pretty cool,huh??

            It made it home on the flight just fine!!

HAPPY FRIDAY the 13th!!

Hope your day is lucky!  Don't break a mirror like Donald!

FOODIE FRIDAY! Rose Gold Minnie Mouse Cupcake!

On our lounge hopping tour back in February, one of our stops was at the Polynesian Village, and dependent on weather, we were going to do inside at the Tambu Lounge or outside at Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace.  Well, since it was in the 80's and sunny, of course we were outdoors!

When our server found out we were celebrating my birthday, she surprised me with this beautiful Rose Gold Minnie Mouse cupcake.............to go with my Rose Gold Minnie ears I was wearing!  

A very sweet young lady, who made my day even better!



I didn't actually eat this until the next day..............for breakfast!!  ;-)

FOODIE FRIDAY! Our Wonderful Experience at TIFFINS !

One of our days at Animal Kingdom consisted of Flight of Passage and the WOW from that, and Tiffins for dinner with the Rivers of Light dining package.  I was a little iffy about the menu........for unwarranted reason!  This place is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a reservation at 4:30pm and were seated fairly quickly........however the table they put us at was near the front window, and normally I would have said nothing, but the sun was coming in there and would have been shining right in Paul's eyes for more than half of or dining time.  That was totally not acceptable with the amount of money we were spending on this dinner.

We requested another table, so we had to wait about five minutes so it was no big deal.  We were in the same area, but more in the center of the room.  They did seat someone else at the table we left, and they didn't complain, but we paid attention to how long they were dodging the light, and it was a while, so I am glad to moved.



Now, to get to the dinner.  First off, our server was great!!  She was very attentive and was very helpful with making our choices.  I knew what I was going to order before we even sat down, but Paul was not as sure.

I ordered the Apple Walnut Salad and Paul chose the Artisan Cheeses for our starters.  They were both delicious.  I totally loved my salad and he really enjoyed his choice as well.



For our entrees, I had the Pan Seared Duck Breast!  This was absolutely amazing!  Paul had Grilled swordfish with forbidden rice, tsukemono, trumpet royals, and carrot coconut purée.





I had a glass of red wine with my dinner.......I chose the Pinotage Painted Wolf The Den from South Africa,  It was very good.
Paul had beer or course.........He chose the First Magnitude 72 Pale Ale, and he enjoyed that as well.


This artwork was in the corner of the room we dined in.  There was such awesome artwork all over, I was trying to look at everything while we were in there, but the food kept grabbing my attention.




We passed on dessert, as we had Kilimanjaro Safaris to get to, and I didn't want to eat too much and get bounced around in the truck!

All in all, this was a wonderful dining experience, and I for sure would eat there again!
