Not only did Jacob have his firsts, but we experienced some foodie firsts while at Walt Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon.
On our first night, we experienced Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage. We loved all of the sweets, character interaction, and seeing Wishes from our boat. This was a great way to kick off our stay at Walt Disney World.
(you know I love cotton candy!)
We were able to snag a same day dining reservation at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in the Magic Kingdom. While the atmosphere was great, I thought the food was just okay. The bread service and the Schweitzer Slush were great. I orderd the rice noodle bowl with chicken as my entree. It wasn’t the greatest chicken pho I have ever had. I am glad that I experienced it once, but I don’t need to go back again.
We also ate at The Boathouse at Disney Springs for lunch, which was really good. Even though it was a beautiful day, we didn’t eat outside but we could see outside. My sister and I both had a Dockside Bucket; she had the Coconut Baja Jumbo Shrimp and I had the Wild Caught Surf Clams. I was looking for them to come in actual buckets but they were more so baskets.
I also had a Moscow Mule for the first time. I will admit, I just wanted the copper cup.
Jacob was more fascinated with the cardboard car that his popcorn shrimp came in than eating. It even survived our trip home! We definitely want to visit The Boathouse again, and maybe even take a ride in an amphicar.
While at Disney Springs, I also tried a Habanero Line Margarita from Dockside Margarita for the first time. It was good, but nothing beats La Cava in Epcot.
Since we tried so many firsts during this trip, we want to incorporate at least one first during each of our future trips. What are some of your suggestions that you think we would enjoy in the future?
