Highlights From Disney
One of our Facebook followers suggested we write about the thing we did at Disney that was our FAVORITE on our Princess Half Marathon trip. While the race was the highlight and the apex of our trip, there were other things I loved. It's hard for me to pick just ONE favorite thing, so this is the first of several "Highlights From Disney" pieces I will write. Today's feature's a special dessert from Yacht and Beach Club. Dig in!
Back in February of 2012, my family and I took some time one evening to venture to Beaches and Cream, a cute little restaurant/soda shop at the Yacht and Beach Club Resort. Our quest was to find the infamous dessert The Kitchen Sink.
"What is the kitchen sink?" you ask? It is the K2 of ice cream desserts. EIGHT scoops of ice cream served in a kitchen sink with EVERY topping they have. This includes but is not limited to: candy bar pieces, cake pieces, a pile of maraschino cherries and chocolate syrup. And, the highlight for my children: AN ENTIRE CAN OF WHIPPED CREAM!
But, as luck would have it, we arrived at the end of a busy day and when we got there, it was a 40 minute wait for a table. So, we decided to skip it and do it "next time".
Well, February 2013 was next time! And I promised my children, after I conquered the Disney Princess Half we would conquer a kitchen sink!
Beaches and Cream
Tuesday after the race we had a rainy day to just chill and relax so we decided it was our chance to go to Beaches and Cream. We arrived in time for lunch so we each ordered actual food before the huge dessert we were anticipating.
Everything was excellent! They have many sandwich type items, hot dogs, hamburgers, your typical fare from a small diner. I ordered grilled cheese and tomato soup. Only it was not your typical 6 year old's entree. The grilled cheese had several different kinds of cheeses, each slice of bread was super thick and the soup was tomato bisque. I was in LOVE.
We finished our lunch and then ordered our dessert. As our waitress carried our sink to our table lights flashed and sirens wailed. She presented us with our dessert as other diners stared in envy, awe, disbelief...not sure. But, we were excited.
Just look at my son's face as he prepares to dig in. What mother could deny her child such excitement??
Getting Ready to Dig In!
Even with 5 of us sharing this monstrosity, we didn't even put a dent in it. Did we NEED this? No. But, it brought smiles and laughter to us on a rainy Disney day. We may not order the kitchen sink on every trip, but I'd definitely go back for the grilled cheese and tomato bisque.
