Spontaneity at Epcot, Part 3

Part 3
By this time it was close to our lunch PS – oh, excuse me – AR – at Alfredos and we joined a small group inside resting and relaxing on the comfy sofas. Because we had called ahead, we were seated first. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the waiter, the food, and the cute, well-behaved kids at the table next to us.

We shared an appetizer :

Fritto Misto con Calamari – calamari fried in special batter and served with a tempura of zucchini, sweet peppers, and apples accompanied by spicy marinara sauce

For drinks , Kathy ordered a Bellini and Rich had a Sangria – both delicious and refreshing.

We repeated our entrees from ‘99:

Kathy: Le Originali Fettuccine all’Alfredo – Our world famous creation – homemade egg noodles tossed in a special butter and parmigian cheese

Rich: Trittico di Pasta – sampler of our most popular pastas: Fettuccine Alfredo, ziti with a fresh plum tomato sauce and lasagne served in a homemade meat sauce

Rich, having grown up with authentic Italian food in southern New Jersey, can attest to the authenticity of the food at Alfredos and that may be key why reviews are so mixed. If you’re used to an American version of Italian food, you may not like it here. But if you’re looking for the real thing, this is the place to go.

Getting quite hot by now, we chose to boat back over to Future World , made a quick stop in at Mouse Gear to pick up our pitcher and a box of Pooh and Tigger Shortbread Cookies (have to bring home a little something for a snack when we get home – helps us extend the Disney trip).

Exhausted but unwilling to stand in the long line to get a bottle of water, we stopped off at Champions Gate and drove through McDonalds to get a couple of large sodas, which helped revive us for the trip home.

In spite of any criticisms we may have made, we had a wonderful time that we were able to revisit while writing up this report.

Next trip scheduled: an overnight at the Boardwalk in October for the Food & Wine Festival .
