The Restaurant Challenge Series rolls on. Victoria & Albert's faces off against Sbarro's (MCO). The winner of that match up will take on the winner of Whispering Canyon and The Wave. Kip presents his first idea for Friday Night's Alright. Artist's Point does mortal combat with the Crystal Palace in a vicious 5-12 match up. We close with Narcoossee's and the Hoop Dee Doo.
Russ is going to Metropolitan Orlando this month and he is going to let us in on what he's doing. The boys discuss different, non-MCO airport options, bottom feeders of the American League, ADRs, and what will be closed. Dutch also bags on Il Mulino, but mostly because he is so jealous. Kip is still thinking about Yuenglin.
We have four play-in games for our Restaurant Challenge Series. The Kringla Bakery squares off against Waffle House. Young upstart Catalina Eddy's takes on Chick Fil-A. Dutch presents his first suggestion for Friday night: Downtown Disney. We then round out the episode with Perkins Pancake House battling the Pop Century Foodcourt. Finally Cinderella's Royal Table throws down with the Sbarro's at Orlando International Airport.
Russ unveils The Restaurant Challenge Series. In an effort to educate Kip about all the great restaurants in WDW, we have put together a tournament to figure out where we most want to eat. We also talk about the more moderate of the deluxe hotels on property. They include the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Wilderness Lodge, Swan and Dolphin.
A dramatic recreation of the Springfields enjoying lamb shank in the hot tub
Kip takes the boys through his trip to Anaheim. We learn that Dr. Springfield likes a nice surprise in a hot tub. We also learn that Dutch does not really care whether or not there is a difference between a carousel and a merry-go-round.
Russ is leading off with our Friday Night's Alright series. He suggests a pub crawl around the Epcot Resorts. We learn a little bit about everyone. Dutch shows his very poor understanding of what hipsters enjoy and we find out that Kip has a healthy love of old man drinks.
Win if you can. Lose if you must. Always cheat. In this episode, Russ and Dutch explain to Kip a bit about fastpasses. Dutch shares a few cheats. We end with an impromptu tour around the monorail to check out a few hotels.
Russ's observation is not that Ariel is a hipster....
Mr. and Dr. Springfield are going to Disneyland. Unfortunately, Dr. Springfield did most of the planning, so Kip doesn't really know too much of what they've got planned. Matching Kip with zero show prep, Russ and Dutch prepare Kip for what to expect. There's a fun little diversion where Russ discusses his unique observation of Ariel at the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
In this episode, your mighty heroes discuss the second leg of the challenge. Inspired by Sip, Snack (and Sick) from the WDW Today boys. Dutch discusses his recent experience with going round the world. We also discuss our rules for when we do the thing.
