August 24th, 2014 | Continued from Part 3

We made our way into Adventureland to go on Pirates of the Caribbean (another FP+), but of course, stopping on the way for photos. I LOVE Adventureland, the themeing here is awesome, and it’s lush with lots of greenery, flowers and trees. Definitely one of my favourite parts of Magic Kingdom.

We joined the FP+ line for Pirates of the Caribbean, and were soon aboard the boats for a swashbuckling adventure… this is another Disney classic ride, and I love it!

We exited into the gift shop. I swooned over Captain Jack Sparrow, and continued on our way.

By now, we were all feeling peckish, and we knew we had credits not being used for ADRs, so made use of them by buying lunch at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café.

Whilst lining up (which always takes forever in counter service places at Walt Disney World) we made our decisions on what to have. I also made the decision to have my drink in a novelty boot cup. I’m a sucker for novelty drinking vessels, and this is added to my collection to go in the bar I plan on constructing in the garden! We paid out of pocket for this ($8.99) as it is not included in the dining plan.

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

Entrées…

Me: Southwest Chicken Salad – chicken breast served over mixed greens with chipotle ranch dressing, Monterey Jack cheese, tomato, roasted corn, and jalapeno ($9.69)

Him: Taco Salad – Fried flour tortilla with seasoned beef ($9.29) + Chili-Cheese Fries ($4.99 –a snack credit)

The Boy: Deluxe 1/3lb Angus Cheeseburger – topped with bacon, onion rings and barbecue sauce, with corn on the cob, apple slices, or French fries ($11.29)

You can add to your meal with toppings like fried onions, salad, pickles, cheese, and sauces at the Toppings Bar.

I really enjoy the salads at the counter service places in WDW, and this was no exception – it was loaded and was very tasty.

I don’t seem to have a photograph of Steve’s taco salad, but here are his chili-cheese fries, and I think, the taco bowl may be in the shot of Liam’s burger. All the food was good. We found a seat eventually, but it was messy from the previous guests, so a little clean up operation from us was in order. By now I the heat had been getting to us, and I remember Steve and I bickering about something or other. Arrrgh, don’t you hate it when that happens! It was soon put to rest though, and we enjoyed our lunch without any further incident!

We cleared our table and ventured outside, to find a spot for the Festival of Fantasy Parade which we hoped wouldn’t be rained off at the very last minute like it was on our first day at Magic Kingdom!
