Old Faithful Club – Part III

Old Faithful Club – Part III (Desserts & Cordials)

After my delicious dinner at Artist Point, I went back to my room and found that the turn down service had been done while I was away.

 

 

I brought the chocolates home with me and my DH ate them. He said they were good! :thumbsup2

I watched some T.V., including one of my favorites…

 

…and before long I decided it was time to check out the Old Faithful Club lounge. Here’s what I found there this time:

There were the usual chocolate chip and sugar cookies…

 

 

…and some frosted brownies.

 

I was excited to see these Magic Bars, something I had heard about but had never before tried.

 

…and also this big pan of Apple Cobbler.

 

I was looking forward to partaking of a few of these cordials…

 

 

Pictured from front to back were: Grand Marnier (an orange-flavored cognac liqueur), Courvoisier (a cognac that I’d heard of but have never tried), Kahlua (a coffee-flavored rum-based liqueur from Mexico), and Amarula (a cream liqueur from South Africa)

There were also the usual non-alcoholic beverages available (so I didn’t again take pictures of these), but this time I noticed the canoe serving dish which held the sweetener packets for the coffee…

 

Here is the plate of goodies that I took back to my room and munched on while I watched the rest of American Idol…

 

The apple cobbler was pretty good but I much prefer berry or peach cobbler, so I only ate a few bites of this. The brownie was also good. However, the real star of my plate was the Magic Bar. In case you are like I was and have never had this before, the “magic” in this cookie bar is created by topping a buttery layer of graham cracker crumbs with coconut flakes, semi-sweet chocolate and butterscotch chips, chopped pecans and walnuts, and multi-colored confetti sprinkles.

Oh, and I also had to have one of my favorite drinks, Kahlua and cream…

 

During a commercial break, I decided to make a quick trip back to the lounge to get some of this…

 

…and was surprised to find that they had put out some different desserts. First there were Pistachio Cakes…

 

I had noticed on the Artist Point dessert menu that there was a Pistachio Cheesecake. I’m not sure if this was a smaller version of that or a variation of the AP dessert, but it sure looked pretty.;)

While I didn’t try any of the pistachio dessert, I couldn’t possibly pass up the chance to have some of the new cobbler that they had just brought out…

 

Remember how I said that I much prefer berry or peach cobbler over apple? Well, they must have read my mind because this was Strawberry-Peach Cobbler…

 

…and I assure that it was as delicious as it looks. :thumbsup2

Soon it was 10:00 and American Idol was over, but that wasn’t the end of the entertainment which I was able to watch from the comfort of my room. You see, though 99% of the time my room had a not particularly exciting woods view, for the other 1% the view was pretty awesome…

 

 

 

I had had thoughts of going to Magic Kingdom after dinner to see Wishes but decided that I didn’t want to miss out on the desserts in the CL lounge. Though the fireworks view from my room did not come close to the view I would have had in the park, I was still quite happy that I’d gotten to have my cake and eat it too. ;)

Oh, and if you are keeping track in my Wilderness Lodge CL vs. Yacht Club CL comparison, the Wilderness Lodge was again the winner in the Desserts category. :thumbsup2
