INNER MOUSE 26 – FOOD FOR THOUGHT

JeniLynn Knopp (234 Posts)

JeniLynn was born and raised in South Florida. Being so close to Walt Disney World, she grew up regularly visiting the Mouse and developed a fascination with the creativity of Disney Parks. Noticing that her happiest moments seemed to always take place in Walt Disney World, JeniLynn began trying to recreate the magic of Disney in her everyday life beginning in her pre-teen years. Adulthood, sixteen years of marriage, and three children later, JeniLynn continues to lead a Disney Driven Life and diligently works to pass her love for Disney on to her husband and children. She has blogged for Touring Plans and been a contributing writer for The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, and she currently co-hosts Orlando Attractions Magazine: The Show; however, her primary focus has always been with the community that has grown around her own site, The Disney Driven Life. Through these venues JeniLynn strives to help other Disney fans stay connected to the brand that has served as a keystone in her family’s life.


The Disney Driven Life brings you another episode of inner mouse. In this week’s show, Scott, John, and JL recap an eventful weekend in Walt Disney World.  The antics of the 2nd inner mouse meet were tossed around for discussion as well as the happenings of the Annual Passholders Expedition Everest Event.  Following that, Team inner mouse attempted to bring attention to some of the restaurants that are frequently overlooked on Disney property.  Leave a comment below and tell us which eateries you feel don’t “get their due” when it comes to cuisine fame.

Today’s show notes are brought to you by Yakin’ Yeti–poor marketing at its best.

    Maybe this doesn’t qualify as an “overlooked restaurant” for most of the folks here, but Liberty Tree Tavern in the MK seems to polarize a lot of folks — they love it or hate it.

    We ate there (party of 6) on our last family trip, and it’ll be a “must-do” from now on. The price is a bit hefty (~$30/person), but it’s a buffet of hearty, Thanksgiving-style food including an apple ala mode dessert that had me miserable through Spectromagic, Wishes, and the monorail ride back to the Contemporary.

    Maybe it’s the food selection, maybe it’s the price — don’t know what for sure why the “haters hate,” but I think it’s a definite unsung hero of Disney Dining. :)

    Whoever in the chat gave the pronunciation on conch is right. Very disappointed to see that John didn’t know the correct pronunciation of this food item. Way to go JL!

    Jessica, you are so right and I am so embarrassed. When I got home, I did look up the pronunciation and realized how horribly I butchered that word. Oh well. At least I knew how to spell it. LOL!
