One ice-cream for two please!

After getting out of bed Danielle went for a run around the hotel area, I stayed in the room because I don’t want to force my knee too much before we will run the Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5k on saturday.  After Danielle was back we went to Epcot for a day of relaxing at a theme park.

We started the day with a visit to the Siemens VIP Center, Base 21 bring some gifts to the hostess. After a couple of drinks we left through the SpaceShip Earth ride before we went for Ellen’s Energy, a ride through a nightmare of Ellen Degeneres around the subject Energy. This ride takes about 45 minutes. From there we walked through the Food & Wine Festival Center to grab some free chocolate and look at the merchandising.

And at that point we both felt hungry, I used the MyDisneyExperience App to find and reserve a restaurant for later that afternoon, we selected Via Napolita a restaurant in Italy in the World Showcase. Before we went there we grabbed appetizers at the Food & Wine booths. Danielle went for Black Pepper Shrimp with Sichuan Noodles in China and I went for Zapiekanki (Toasted Mushroom, Caramelized Onion and Cheese Bread with House-made Ketchup) at Poland.  We ended up being thirsty and went for a beer at the local Florida booth were we had got a glass of Orlando Brewing, Sun Shade Organic Pale Ale and a glass of Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale.

After taking some pictures around the lagoon it was time for dinner and we went towards the Italy pavilion where we were seated within some minutes. We both went for a pizza Danielle got a Funghi combined with an ice-tea and I went for a pepperoni with an Italian beer. We skipped dessert since there was nothing interesting on the menu.

But what is what the title of this blog post when there was no desert yet? Well I read about an on-of-a-kind ice-cream piece somewhere at a Disney World Resort near Epcot. So after some more research we found it was at Beaches and Cream in between the Disney’s Beach Club Resort and the Disney’s Yacht Club Resort which is about one kilometer walking from the restaurant in the Italy Pavilion. So this was our next stop, although we were not sure or we wold really go for this unique ice-cream.

After we arrived at the restaurant we needed to wait a couple of minutes before seating was available. We looked around saw other people with this ice-cream and thought this would be something for us too. Although theirs was already half-finished and the part on top was missing… But we just did it and ordered the world-famous and legendary Kitchen Sink!!!

Afterwards I found out all the ingredients, I’m not sure or I would have ordered this when I knew this upfront. Parts of it where delicious and some parts where not. So I didn’t like the mint chocolate chip ice cream but I love the peanut butter topping.

  3. I hope you can still run after all that Ice Cream! Holy cow! That looks like a great dessert but after eating it all I’d want to is sleep. Haha. Thanks for sharing your pictures. We’d love to be there with you.

  4. OMG Heeft er nog iemand zin in een ijsje ? Ik kan niet echt zeggen dat het er smakelijk uit ziet maar de ingrediëntenlijst bewijst het tegendeel lol
    Ben echt benieuwd naar Frozen , characters komen ook naar parijs tijdens het kerstseizoen misschien dat ik er dan ook in slaag om zo’n leuke foto te maken als die van jullie .
    Tot morgen en succes alvast met the Run xxx

  5. Het lijkt me toch een grote uitdaging om dat “ijsje” thuis te maken.
    Het was weer een mooie dag met leuke foto’s.
    Ik ben benieuwd hoeveel foto’s jullie al gemaakt hebben.
