Day 13 – Not Downtown Disney | Part 2 | Halloween in the Wilderness 2015

Whispering Canyon Cafe (TS Breakfast) | Shopping at Disney Springs | Wolfgang Puck Express (CS Lunch) | Boma – Flavors of Africa (TSB Dinner)
November 4th, 2015
Continued from Part 1…


Shopping is hard work, so we decided to have lunch at Disney Springs. Since we were quite near to Wolfgang Puck Express, that was where we went! We’ve never eaten here before, so it was all new to us. It wasn’t busy at all, so finding a table after we had ordered our food at the counter was very easy. Slightly more upmarket in feel than other counter service restaurants – they actually bring your food out to you – on proper ceramic plates, and real knives and forks, instead of the paper/plastic you usually get.

When it comes to the Deluxe Disney Dining Plan at a counter service/quick-service restaurant you are entitled to one entrée, one dessert and one non-alcoholic beverage for one credit per person.

I do not seem to have any details about this meal at all, so I’m having to take a guess at what we had! I normally take a photo of the receipt so that it jogs my memory, but not in this case it would seem. I must have had the receipt at some point, as the totals are on my spreadsheet…

We did a final bit of [window] shopping in Arribas Brothers – I love that shop – everything is so sparkly!! And then made our way back to the bus stops and catch a bus back to Wilderness Lodge. On our return, we found that another towel critter had been left for us – I love these little Disney touches!

Dinner this evening was at Boma: Flavors of Africa, where we had breakfast a couple of days ago. We really do love this buffet restaurant because it has a good selection of different dishes – with African influences, but the night we visited was really sub par. I don’t know if it was because we were full up from food from the day (quite likely) or if the place had gone down since our last visit. Such a shame, as we had been looking forward to this meal.

When it comes to the Deluxe Disney Dining Plan at a buffet restaurant, you are entitled to one full buffet and one non-alcoholic beverage (usually refillable) for one credit per person.

Since it’s a buffet, I’m just grabbing info from the menu board outside the restaurant which tells you what may be on offer that evening. The buffet is said to feature over 75 unique mouthwatering selections…

Carving Station

Rotisserie Chicken, Curried Lamb Stew, Bobotie, African-Spiced Strip Loin, Pork Shoulder, Slow-Roasted Ribs, Nut-Crusted Salmon.

Soups

Ghanian Oxtail Stew, Mulligatawny, Seafood Gumbo, Curried Coconut Seafood Stew, Butternut Squash, Harira.
