Just got our fastpasses!

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-11-21 14:25
l was able to get FP this morning for our January trip, and was able to get everything l wanted at pretty close to my desired times, including 2 for FOP (the only one l was actually worried about). The app was quite glitchy and multiple times didn’t show a FP in my plans right after l scheduled it, which caused a momentary panic, but everything wound up being there in the end.

We are doing quick service DDP and are thinking about using some credits for breakfast. Staying at beach club and know the options are limited there. Any recommendations of good places around BC or even in parks? Don’t usually do breakfast so I really don’t have much experience here. But decided to do one TS out of pocket so have an extra QS meal. Thanks!!

Arriving at Pop Century 11/29...How bad is the construction?

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-11-20 16:57
I know there is a lot of construction on the 50's end of the Pop Century site, as well as room remodeling throughout. How bad are these things with regard to sounds and congestion around the resort? I am already booked and 'signed in,' I just would like to know what I'm in for.

Thanks!!

Ale & Compass Restaurant Opens November 26, 2017 at Disney's Yacht Club

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-11-20 00:37
Disney's Yacht Club will unveil a re-imagined table service location on November 26th:

The on-stage “hearth” oven area, where a select few diners can grab a seat, is the focal point of this warm and inviting space that is reminiscent of an off-shore lighthouse with rich, salvaged materials that are the decorative finishes.

... The New England-inspired menus are creative and straight-up delicious — developed by the chefs of Disney’s Flavor Lab, a collaborative team responsible for all new food and beverage concepts across Disney.

Lenny DeGeorge, culinary director for the Flavor Lab, is from the Boston area and spent summers in Cape Cod — where his parents currently reside.

“The menu is inspired by all the great restaurants in the New England area that I have experienced growing up. The New England melting pot of flavors and ingredients from Italy, Portugal, and England, coupled with central Florida influences, are present on the menu that delivers modern gastropub classics.”



... menu items [include] Blueberry-Bacon Pancakes for breakfast and the Mushroom, Caramelized Onion, and Gruyere Cheeseburger for lunch.


For dinner, [try] the Fried Chicken and Waffles with House-made Pickles and Orange-Chili Honey or the Coastal Clambake (1/2 Maine Lobster, Clams, Corn, and Potatoes).



... Flavor Lab Executive Pastry Chef Stefan Riemer ... created a delicious Lemon “Curd” Meringue Pie [and a] Twelve-Layer Chocolate Cake (Flourless Chocolate Cake and Ganache served with Milk-Coffee Chantilly). Attached Images
