A new dining report!!! Yay!

We were in WDW from July 7 to July 17, 2007. It was myself, my DH, DS age 4, DD age 2 but she turned 3 on the trip, my mom and dad, my aunt and my grandmother.

We did more table service meals than I had anticipated, so we were quite stuffed by the end of the trip!

Here is day 1 - July 8, 2007 (our first day in the parks and the first day I started taking pictures - we checked in to Pop really late on the 7th, so all we had was pizza and snacks from the food court there. We switched to the Polynesian on the 8th).

Here we go!!!

We went to the MK on July 8th and had breakfast at the Main Street Bake Shop.

Fruit, yogurt, cheese danish, muffin, bagel and coffee. All very good.

As usual, we were all very happy with our breakfast. I love the bake shop and wish that I had gone back there for breakfast another morning, but we did eat a lot of breakfasts in our room to save $$$. We ordered items from Garden Grocer.

Lunch that day was at the Plaza.

The kids had the kids hamburgers - I don't know where my picture of that is. I had the strawberry chicken salad. DH had the club sandwich as did my mom and grandmom. And my dad and aunt shared the vegetarian sandwich.

I love, love, love the Plaza!

Oh, the kids got the Mickeylodian sundae for dessert.

I'm glad you're all enjoying the reviews so far. We were not on the DDP. I have the DDE card so we got 20% off our meals.

We skipped our dinner at the Yacht Club Galley and decided to try out the new Captain Cook's. I got the noodle bowl with chicken and veggies.

My DH got the pulled pork sandwich. It comes with cheese but there was no option to remove the cheese on the computer kiosk, so he had to take it back and ask them to remake it (he's lactose intolerant).

My mom and grandmom had the kids' grilled cheese.

My kids shared the chicken fingers.

My aunt had sushi that was in the refrigerated case and my dad had the Polynesian salad. I took pictures of these but they came out terrible. Sorry.

I like to new Captain Cook's layout and you get your food much quicker than before. But when it's crowded, the line to pay can make things very congested. Try to get there before or after peak dining hours.

Main St. Bakery, the Plaza and Capt. Cook's are some of my favorites. We were there June 28-July 12 but I still haven't gotten around to a dining report - good for you!

Looks great!

Question for you - how did you handle tickets and the dining plan with your daughter that turned 3 during the trip. Did she remain 2 for the entire trip? Thanks! :)

We weren't on the DDP but have the Disney Dining Experience card for annual passholders so we got 20% off our meals.

My DD stayed 2 for the duration of the trip. I believe that is WDW's policy. But when I ordered off the kids' menu for her, I paid for that. The only places that she wasn't charged was Boma, CRT, Crystal Palace and Garden Grill. Everywhere else I ordered her an entree from the kids' menu. She ate way more than her my DS who will be 5 in August.

Glad your feeling better!

Welcome back from your trip! We were at Disney the same time (July 2-14)!! We missed our lunch at the Plaza this time - its always a "must do" for my family, but we had to cancel at the last minute. I already have our ADR for our trip in November!

Can't wait to read more!!!!

We had breakfast in the room at the hotel - cereal and yogurt that was ordered from garden grocer. :thumbsup2

We went to AK and got to see the new Nemo show - fantastic!

We had lunch at Restorantausaurus.

My mom, dad, aunt and I got the salad (I cannot remember what it was called or what was in it - I think cucumbers, chicken, maybe pecans or almonds and a ginger vinegarette. It was very good!)

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a184/scanne/CIMG1929.jpg

My kids shared the 10 piece chicken McNuggets.
DH had the veggie burger and my grandmother had a hotdog.

Dinner that night was Boma - we always have dinner at Boma. It is truly one of our favorites.

My DD and I started out with soup - mushroom for me, potatoe for her.

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a184/scanne/CIMG1933.jpg
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a184/scanne/CIMG1934.jpg

Then I got the boboti, falafel, peanut rice, pork in bbq sauce.

DH had some sort of stew and chicken I think. I just snapped pictues of our plates before digging in.

And of course, dessert. Gotta have zebra domes and the flourless chocolate cake!

Cookies for the kids.

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a184/scanne/CIMG1947.jpg

And it was my mom's birthday, so they brought out a special dessert board with all the decorations in chocolate. My kids loved the gummy bears that were all over!

Great reviews.............we are going to try Boma's for the 1st time on our trip in Nov. I cannot wait. I have heard some great things about it, so I am drooling just thinking about it.

also thanks for taking a picture of the kids menu at the Plaza. We may be eating there as well and my dd7 can be somewhat picky.....glad they have a turkey sandwich. always her first choice.

keep the reviews and pictures coming!!
