Part of the reason I started this blog was to have the opportunity to review Disney restaurants like I did on the DIS. I'll mark every dining review as such in the title of the post. I'm sure some I will do as individual restaurants and others I'll do like this one, where I combine several into one.
For this post, I'll be talking about Sunshine Seasons, Cava Del Tequila, La Cantina de San Angel and the Boulangerie Patisserie.
As we grabbed fastpasses for Soarin' I heard the Croissant Berry Pudding calling my name. Of course, who am I to resist the lure of such a delicious breakfast treat?

I first had the Croissant Berry Pudding last Memorial Day weekend. In my opinion, it's a little hidden gem that I don't think most people know about. It's basically a bread pudding made with croissants and blueberries. It's not overly sweet and the portion is just perfect for a light breakfast snack (light in texture, I'm sure not light in calories unfortunately!) If you find yourself at Sunshine Seasons during breakfast time, this is definitely worth taking time out to enjoy!
La Cava del Tequila
My Mom and I knew we wanted to hit up the Mexican Counter Service for lunch. What better beverage to wash some tacos down with than margaritas! My Mom apparently has never been to La Cava, she usually picks up her margaritas from the stand outside. She never knew what she was missing.

It is important to note that these margaritas are more expensive than the stand outside. That being said, they're totally worth it. I'm not a huge drinker, so after one I'm usually done. I'd rather spend more for this drink than get one of the frozen ones, they've got so much more flavor! They don't skip on the tequila here either, these drinks are strong! You can also sit inside and get some snacks to go with your margaritas. If you follow them on Twitter @cavadeltequila they also have specials for their Twitter followers!
La Cantina de San Angel
When my Mom and I were talking about coming up, we were debating whether to make an ADR (Advanced Dining Reservation) at one of the sit-down restaurants. She then suggested getting Mexican Counter Service and it stuck! I had tried it for the first time this past September and it was delicious.

Seating here can be hard to come by, but we lucked out and had someone stand up as soon as I started looking. We had a bigger table, so we made sure to leave room in case anyone had a hard time finding a table and needed to join us. We had a family join us at the table. Don't be shy in asking to share a table! Unless someone is waiting for others, I've never had anyone say no.
As we were walking around the World Showcase, I decided I wanted something sweet. We wound up stopping at the bakery in France. So many tasty treats! I went back to the Strawberry Tart that I had before. The strawberries are so fresh! The only complaint I have about this treat is that it's a little hard to eat.
