Back from Our Disneymoon!...our dining experience

Neil and I just got back from a wonderful (but very short) Disney Honeymoon. We had 4 nights/3 days at Disney and it was the best time (we can't wait to go back). We stayed at the Port Orleans- French Quarter and it was great we even got upgraded to a river view room, we originally were supposed to be facing the parking lot. It was also a great place because there was a boat that takes you to downtown Disney we we were the first bus stop for all the parks.

Our first day we just wondered around some of the Disney Resort hotels and downtown Disney. We went to the Contemporary Resort were we played some games at the arcade and then went to lunch at The Wave.

We got honeymoon sparkling shiraz wine it was Delicious!

I had the vegetarian (vegan) stew with wild rice it was amazing. It was filled with fresh veggies and had a light vegetable broth.

Neil had the veggie tofu sandwich sans goat cheese and it was just as amazing and came with oven roasted potatoes.

Following this we went back to the hotel and lounged by the pool for a bit before we had to head to the Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner at Boma. Dinner at Boma was great the chef came out and walked us through the buffet to let us know what dishes were vegan she was also willing to make us some other dishes if there wasn't enough but there was a ton of options. We had couscous, roasted veggies, a variety of rices, falafel and some yummy olive hummus, as well as a variety of salads and fruit! Our waiter was great too and got us a special desert some raspberry and coconut sorbet because there was nothing at the buffet we could have, overall it was great!

The next day we went to Epcot and Hollywood Studios (former MGM). We went to lunch at Epcot at the Rose and Crown Dining Room where we had a great lunch of vegetable curry with quinoa and bread and vegetable samosas with tamarind and mango sauce (sorry no picture we were so hungry).

Once it started to pour we decided to take a walk over to Hollywood Studios where we had a great time, Neil loved the Tower of Terror. We decided to go to dinner there at the Brown Derby where we had a yummy coconut crusted tofu noodle bowl that was filled with bok choy, edamame and shiitake mushrooms with a red curry sauce.

And we also got another free glass of champagne this time with a strawberry!

Our last day we went to Animal Kingdom which ended up being our favorite park I could have spent the entire weekend there it was so amazing. We went to the Rainforest Cafe where we had a portobello sandwich which was good. We spent the 2nd part of the day at Magic Kingdom which was packed! We were overwhelmed by all the people but made sure not to leave before we stopped at the Ice Cream Parlor and had some Toffuti! I had chocolate which was so yummy and Neil had vanilla.

Over all we had an amazing time and can't wait to go back!
