Magically Delicious - Day 4

On our fourth day at Disney we spent all of our time in Magic Kingdom...I was so excited about this park! Mostly because as a kid, that's the park you really focus on. The one where so many of the great Disney characters are represented and well, Cinderella's castle is there!

We started out the day in Fantastyland and just went through the entire park counter-clockwise seeing and riding everything we wanted. Sadly the Mad Hatter's Tea Party was out of commission, but we were able to be sufficiently creeped out by the Small World ride. Officially the scariest ride in Disney!

For lunch we decided to do something lowkey, but still tasty and try The Plaza restaurant. We both ended up ordering the same thing!

We tried the Vegetarian Sandwich, it looks deliciously hearty with fresh mozzarella, hummus, basil pesto, cucumber, roasted red pepper, lettuce and tomato packed onto fresh foccacia bread...definitely didn't disappoint. We didn't miss the meat at all! We also tried their Creamy Tomato Bisque and found it to be delicious.

We headed off to explore the rest of the park and finished up our day at Tony's - a restaurant fashioned after the one in Lady and the Tramp. It had beautiful decor, dark woods and an Italian theme and the food was phenomenal. Our waiter was definitely the best we had the entire trip!

When it came to trying appetizers, I had to get the Zucchini Fries and Aaron went for the Fried Calamari...yum! We also tried their fresh Italian rolls with garlic olive oil...who could ever turn down fresh baked bread?

For our entrees, Aaron jumped at the chance for more of his favorite: seafood! He tried the Seafood Diavolo, which included linguine pasta with clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp and salmon in a spicy tomato sauce. I decided to go for seafood also, but in a slightly different way and tried the Catch of the Day (which happened to be salmon) served over orzo pasta tossed with pancetta, roasted garlic and seasonal veggies. The whole dish was drizzled with a maple balsamic glaze, which added a delicious richness to the fish.

Dessert was definitely a high point. Aaron had their take on Tiramisu and once I saw the Pistachio Creme Brulee on the menu I knew I had to dig into that! Both were delicious, but Aaron's presentation had a little more of that Disney "magic" to it.
