Published: August 28, 2013 at 12:17 PMAgreed with the chicken and waffle sandwiches. I had a pretty decent fish sandwich at Disneyland's Tomorrowland Terrace, not sure if it is still there. Apparently Harbor Galley is also adding a shrimp cobb salad and shrimp baked potato (ah, takes me back to my days at Oxford where one of my favorite lunches was a prawn potato jacket at a local cafe) which is great because I love the location, just didn't like the previously limited menu. I think I'll be making a trip to Harbor Galley. Cocina Cucamonga in DCA definitely needs fish tacos. Recently at a nice little pizzaria in Sausalito I had an amazing thin crust pizza with Italian sausage and fresh in shell mussels. Disney's used mussels before in the bouillabaisse they offered for a limited time at the Blue Bayou, so Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta could pull that one off. Maybe DCA could add a sushi place too. It could replace the Lucky Fortune Cookery.
Published: August 28, 2013 at 12:22 PMAs much as I love lobster, I've never had a lobster roll. Whenever I read about them, the mayonnaise and other stuff turns me off. I haven't realized until recent years, and you mentioned this, Robert...that some places serve it with nothing but lobster, lobster, and more lobster. Although I'm not heading to Disney anytime soon, I'll try one....
Published: August 28, 2013 at 2:24 PMGrowing up in New England, my family always considered lobster a sort of delicacy, even though it was easy to get and relatively inexpensive. But you take it for granted, and now that I'm in SoCal, I long for a lobster often. I'm glad Disneyland is bringing the lobster roll to the menu, and I will definitely try it out. Here's a silly question - do you know if it will be served warm or cold? Also, great shout out to Reds! :)

Published: August 29, 2013 at 8:52 AMI would prefer them to be more like the EPCOT F&W Lobster rolls served at the Hops and Barley Market. While those rolls are a little smaller (no side at $7.50), they are composed of giant chunks of lobster with just a tiny bit of herbed mayo. Also, the small dinner-roll-sized buns are toasted.

Published: August 30, 2013 at 5:51 AMJust for fun, let me share my thoughts on lobster rolls!!! Living in Boston and Spend summers in maine, let me give the unofficial lobstah roll summary....
Note: a new England hot dog bun is different than the rest of the country! It has the white bread exposed on either side making for a better toast. (trust me Cali folks, look up hot dog bun types ;-)
My favorite style? Gotta go Maine style to appreciate the meat and not cover it up with mayo!
Final tip: if you get one and it needs a bit of tlc to spice it up, which is often the case with theme park food, try stuffing some cape cod potatoe chips into the bun with the lobster salad for contrasting flavors, salt and a crunch!
