A taste of Disney… at home

Okay, so one of my FAVORITE quick service meals that we enjoyed at Disney during our July trip was the “Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese” from Bill and Min’s Dockside Diner.  This is located at Hollywood Studios.  As I mentioned in a blog post during our trip, this was our very first time at Bill and Mins. We often opt for air conditioned locations for our quick service meals because lets face it… its HOT in Florida during the summer!  With that being said, I had heard about this delicacy and was determined to try it, despite the outdoor dining area.  All I can say was that it was epic!  The only quick service meal that I think I enjoyed more was the pulled pork, cornbread waffle sandwich from Typhoon Lagoon.  (Yes… I will admit, I have a thing for pulled pork!)

  
So when I was grocery shopping at home and saw “Appleton Farms” pulled pork just staring at me from the meat case at Aldi, I knew what had to be done… I needed to recreate this awesomeness!

This recreation tastes remarkably close to the one at Disney and is very simple-

I used Stouffer’s Mac n Cheese, Appleton Farms Pulled Pork, and Tuscan Garden Crispy Onions.  If you don’t have an aldi nearby I would imagine you’ve got prepared pulled pork available, and French’s crispy onions.

   
 Mmmmmm… Maybe I will pretend I’m at Disney while I eat it ūüėČ

30 Day Disney Challenge- Day 13 “Favorite Quick Service Restaurant”

Today is another tough choice.  Walt Disney World is sprawling with places to eat, many of them being quick service locations.  I am going to highlight a few of my favorites, just because there are SO many options between the parks, and resorts.

Magic Kingdom- Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe. ¬†If you’re on the dining plan, you can’t beat their chicken and ribs combo at dinner time. ¬†The cost is about $16, and by the time you add in your dessert and drink you’re easily looking at a $21 value. ¬†The meal is HUGE and very sharable if you’re one who likes to share your quick service credits. ¬†This location also has indoor seating which is a plus when it’s hot outside and you want to sit in the AC. ¬†There is also animatronic entertainment in the seating area. ¬†It’s always fun to watch “Sonny Eclipse” with his stand up comedy and music!

Hollywood Studios- ABC Commissary.  I love this location because it has a unique selection of food.  Many locations have your typical hamburger, hotdog, and chicken fingers.  ABC has unique selections Salmon, Steak, Shrimp (Yes this is a quick service location!!!) Salads, and a unique twist on burgers.  Another perk here again is the indoor seating and air conditioning.

I know this isn’t at WDW, but the best meal that I’ve ever consumed at a quick service location was at Disney’s California Adventure Park- Flo’s V8 Cafe. ¬†When I visited in 2012, the Radiator Springs part of DCA was brand new, and was just WONDERFULLY details! ¬†I loved every part of it, and we made sure that eating in radiator springs was part of the plan! ¬†I am going to have to make this my #1 choice as far as best quick service location I’ve eaten at. ¬†I had the turkey breast meal.

The best quick service meal that I’ve enjoyed from a resort was at Pop Century’s court-“Everything Pop.” ¬†They have unique selections at all times of the day, including a breakfast sandwich that uses pop-tarts as the bun. ¬†I enjoyed lunch there during my last stay, and it was delicious (I had just run a 1/2 marathon too, so I was REALLY hungry!) ¬†I had their turkey sandwich (Oven-roasted Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Cornbread Stuffing, Cranberry Mayonnaise, and Watercress on Texas Toast served cold with House-made Chips, Pasta Salad, or Coleslaw)… my mouth just watered thinking about it again! ¬†It was so yummy!
