Welcome to those of you joining me from Growing Up Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Disney Food…there’s nothing quite like it.  In this month’s post, the Magical Blogorail Red team is bringing you our thoughts and ideas on what our ideal Disney Resort meal will be.  Already my mouth is watering, and I’m thinking of all the yummy delicious things that you can get at Walt Disney World.  How am I going to make some serious decisions here?

Well, for starters, my meal is going to consist of an appetizer, entree, and dessert.  We aren’t much on alcohol, so my drink will probably be a Diet Coke…


From Canada: The World Famous Cheddar Cheese Soup!

While this may not look like much, mainly because of the photographer in this case (that would be me!), the Cheddar Cheese soup from Le Cellier in Canada is at the top of my appetizer list.  I’ve only had it one time — during the Food and Wine Festival we went to in 2011 — but it was so good I’ve got to try it out again!

A close second in my mind would be the appetizer bar that you have available to you at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway.  All those incredible meats, cheeses, and breads are really tasty!


The Traditional Kjottkake at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is delicious!

Yum!  Speaking of Norway, the Traditional Kjottkake at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall gets my vote for my favorite dish, although, I will admit that the entrees you get with the dinner at the Garden Grill Restaurant are absolutely fabulous also!  Anyway, the Traditional Kjottkake is Norwegian meatballs with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and lingonberry sauce.  The gravy, the meatballs, the tang of the sauce, it all works out to be a truly wonderful, comfort food that you will truly enjoy!

When it comes to a dessert at Walt Disney World, I haven’t come across one that I like more than the berry cobbler that you get at the end of your meal at the Garden Grill Restaurant.  This incredibly delicious dish comes in it’s own skillet, warm, and with a whipped cream/ice cream type accompaniment on top.  This is truly a comfort food at its finest, and one that I truly enjoy time and time again!  If you have never eaten at the Garden Grill Restaurant, you are missing out, not just because of this dessert, but it’s a big reason why!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney Donna Kay.

  1. Great post, Mike! I like the Kjottkake too. My brother and I went to Akershus years ago, had a great time, and have had a running inside joke ever since.

  2. I totally agree with you about Garden Grill, Mike. We went there for the first time last November, and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!! New favorite. :)

    And it’s been far too long since we went to Akershus, I think that just made next trip’s list thanks to you!

    Love the post!

  3. Thanks for the suggestions from Akershus – we’ll be dining there in January! I’ll have to try those meatballs….

    • I think you’ll like them, Tricia, but let me know when you get back what you thought of it. Plus, with Akershus, you’ll get a free photo package (well, I’m sure it’s accounted for in the price of the meal) of your family with the character that is greeting you. Most of the time it’s Belle, but we’ve had a different character there too. Enjoy!


  4. Love all your choices, Mike. We haven’t eaten in the Norway Pavilion in years but I remember how good it was. I’m definitely gonna have to try that Berry Cobbler, I have never eaten at the Garden Grill but it’s on the list now ;-)

    PS – Love the New Header

  5. Seems like Garden Grill really left an impression with you! I’ve never seen that dish from Norway, but it looks like something my husband would LOVE! As for me, cheddar cheese soup all the WAY1

  6. True confessions time: Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is only one of 4 restaurants we haven’t yet eaten at in all of Walt Disney World. I WILL be booking in 2014!

    • Wow, Donna! I can’t claim anything as cool as your confession! I’ll try, though…as you may remember, my first trip to WDW was in 1979, when I was 11 years old.

      My daughter Sophie, who is now 12 1/2, has been to Walt Disney World 9 times in the past 8 years, and once to Disneyland!
