Sorry for the delay. It took forever to put all my pictures on photobucket, and once I got them all uploaded they were out of order. But we're ready to go now. I will also doing a cost comparison to show how much we saved on the dining plan. So for the DxDP for 8 nights we paid $1,151.84. I'm not sure yet how much we did save but I know it was a bunch.

Day 1

We arrived at our hotel, BLT around 2 and went right for a bite to eat at the Contempo Cafe. At first we were a little confused by the machines in which you place your order. You order, pay and then get your food. A little confusing and I'm not sure I like this method. :confused3 We weren't terribly hungry after eating a bunch of snacks on the plane ride down so we shared a smoked turkey BLT with a side of french fries, and a dirt and worms cake. We grabbed our refillable mugs at the same time. The sandwich was delicious! There was lots of turkey and the bread was nice and fresh. The french fries were great as well. I liked this sandwich even better than any sandwich they serve at CHH. The dessert however was very crumbly and dry. I was expecting it to have chocolate pudding in it or something since it was worms and dirt but nothing. Just a very dry chocolate cake with a few gummy worms in it. I wish I had gone for the brownie instead!

Day 1 Dinner-Raglan Road

We ended up being 20 minutes late for this reservation thanks to the wonderful Disney buses. We took a bus from MK to WL around 5:40 and just missed a DTD bus. We then had to wait around 40 minutes for another DTD to come around. Between all the waiting time, stopping at other resorts and driving time it took us from 5:40 MK, until 7:35 to get to DTD. :mad:Crazy! We had the worst luck with buses this trip. But anyways, we were seated within ten minutes even after being late. First, I ordered a Jaygail Sangria. I love these, this is one of my favorite Sangria's. Here's the description on the menu. "A refreshing blend of Strongbow, Peach Schnapps and Fruit Liqueurs with squeezes of lemon & lime and a splash of orange juice."
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/051.jpg
DH just got a Coke.
For our appetizers we both got the Chicken Lickin'. This was just as good as before. I love the honey mustard sauce they put on this, and the flavor goes well with the greens underneath it. The only problem with this dish is that its HUGE for an appetizer. I could have this as a meal and be happy.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/054.jpg

While we were enjoying our appetizers, the house band started playing and the Irish Step dancer went up on stage. I love the entertainment here. Makes you want to get up and dance!

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/057.jpg

For an entree, DH ordered the serious sirlion steak. He liked it enough, a little on the dry side. He also didn't realize how greasy the crispy fried onion strings on top were. He almost spit them back out after trying on bite, a mouthful of grease.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/058.jpg

I normally don't eat much red meat but I decided to try the Keen Eye for the Sheperds Pie. I really wish I hadn't. Almost the whole thing was meat, very little potatoes. The sauce that the meat was in was awful. Definetly a mistake for me to order red meat. DH ate most of what I didn't.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/059.jpg

For dessert, DH ordered Ger's Bread and Butter Pudding. Of course he thought it was fabulous! :thumbsup2 This is his favorite at Raglan Road. Sorry for the bad angle on this picture.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/061.jpg

I ordered a raspberry dessert. I'm looking at the online menus and can't seem to find the name anywhere. I think it was a raspberry meringue. I honestly had no idea what I was ordering but I love raspberries so I went for it. Yum this was so good! Tasted alot like cotton candy with raspberry sauce.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/060.jpg

Overall we were a little disappointed with the meal at Raglan Road this time. This is usually one of our favorite restaurants. Next time I think we will stick to lunch here, or maybe just appetizers and dessert.

Day 2 Chef Mickeys breakfast
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/069.jpg
DH and I had previously tried Chef Mickeys for dinner and thought that it was awful but we decided to give breakfast a shot. Plus, it was an easy walk from our room to the restaurant. I was actually able to get a 7:10 reservation only a week before our trip. Also, a few days before our trip was our dating anniversary of 5 years so I had noted it on all our dining reservations. Big mistake when you are on the deluxe dining plan. Some restaurants gave us a complimentary dessert after we had each already had dessert. We were too full to barely even touch the free desserts. I didn't take a ton of pictures of this meal but here's my first plate-
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/071.jpg
There was a cheese omlet, cheesy potatoes, bacon and a cinammon bun. All of it was so good especially the omelet. Very cheesy and I just love the eggs at Disney.

Here's DH's first plate-
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/070.jpg
He had cheese omlet, cheesy potatoes, biscuits and gravy, hash, breakfast potatoes with veggies, and french toast. He liked almost everything especially the hash. He's big into hash. He thought that the cheesy potatoes tasted like crayons. :confused3 I don't know, I liked them.

We both went back up for second plates. DH grabbed a little more of what he had on his first plate. I just grabbed a bunch of the mini pancakes. These were so good! I was full but ended up eating about 5 of these. Sorry no pictures. Here's DH pigging out though. haha I was only trying to get a picture of the restaurant. It came out awfully dark. Alot of my first pictures are dark, I had gotten a new camera before the trip and was playing around with the settings alot. The pictures will get better though.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/072.jpg
All of the characters came out pretty quickly after we were seated. We saw all of them in the hour or so that we were there. Here's a few of our character pictures. When Mickey came out he ran over to me and gave me a big hug and kiss. Then, he requested a kiss on the cheek from me. Mickeys my favorite so this was awesome!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/075.jpg

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/082.jpg


After we were done with the buffet our server brought us out a cupcake for our anniversary. I ate the Mickey on the top and took one bite. I was too full to eat much more than that.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/074.jpg

I would highly recommend Chef Mickey's for breakfast it was awesome all around! DH and I will be going back here on our next trip as well.

Day 2 Lunch CHH

This is the day that we did the KTTK tour which by the way was fantastic! I highly recommend it. So CHH was included with the tour. I did not take any pictures for this meal as we were sitting with others from the tour and I didn't want any weird looks. :lmao:

DH and I both ordered the same thing, we got the Lighthouse Sandwich with chips and bottled waters. We did not get dessert with this meal which was kind of a relief. DH really enjoyed the Lighthouse Sandwich. It was hummus, brocolli slaw and tomatoes on a multi grain bread. I on the other hand did not enjoy this sandwich at all. I thought that the brocolli slaw was kind of sweet and gross. I ended up giving the other half of my sandwich to DH and just eating my chips.

Price for this meal-$0

After our tour DH grabbed a cream cheese pretzel from The Lunching Pad. I had a few bites too, these are so delicious!

Day 2 Dinner

We had a reservation at Kona this night, this is one of our favorite restaurants for both dinner and breakfast. First they brought us out the bread with macademia nut butter. This could probably be a meal in itself.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/106.jpg
For my appetizer I ordered the chicken noodle soup. I love the chicken noodle soup here, it has good quality chicken and delicious broth.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/108.jpg

DH ordered the pot stickers (same app he had last time) and they seemed like they were alot smaller than they were last time. However, he said they also tasted much better than before.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/107.jpg

For my entree I ordered the miso glazed mahi mahi. When I went to order this our waitress suggested I get the mahi mahi oscar. Basically the tuna oscar dish with mahi mahi, she said alot of guests liked it better this way. I however declined since I don't like wasabi sauce. I'm glad I got the miso glazed dish, it was delicious! I really liked the soba noodles they were very soft and the tastes blended very well together.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/110.jpg

DH ordered the pan asian noodles with chicken, I'm not sure why because last trip he did not like these at all. This time however he said they were ten times better. They weren't drenched in sauce like they used to be and it wasn't so sweet. I tried a bite as well and they were very good, though my dish was better.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/109.jpg

We were stuffed by the time dessert came around but since it was included, we both ordered the banana-chocolate creme brulee. The best creme brulee in the world! I love that it has a layer of chocolate underneath the banana creme brulee.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/111.jpg

And just as we felt we could not eat another morsel, out came our waitress with a free anniversary dessert. They were pastry puffs with a lemon creme and chocolate pudding with whipped creme on time. I took a few bites and they were delicious. I was upset I didn't have more room to eat more.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/112.jpg

Dinner here was fantastic as usual. We will definetly be back here on our next trip. Unfortunalty I didn't end up ordering a Lapu Lapu here like I wanted to, but don't worry there will be one coming!

Total price-$74.49 Total on DxDP-2 TS credits

And after all that food we had the Wishes dessert party coming up in only two hours! :scared1:

Alright, the much awaited Wishes Dessert Party. We were let into the dessert party at 9 for the 10:00 fireworks. As many people have been asking on the boards, you don't have a very good view of Spectromagic from here. So, we were brought to our table which was right up front, seems the parties of two are more likely to get tables in the front.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/120.jpg
Heres the view of the castle from our seats.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/119.jpg
I was stuffed but the second I went up to the buffet, I had to have one of almost everything. I grabbed a rice krispy treat, cheesecake, mango shooters, chocolate covered strawberries, pistachio creme brulee, chocolate peanut butter tart, chocolate banana tart. The mango shooters were my favorite. The tarts were kind of bland, not that great. The cheesecake was the worst. Blegh! It was gross.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/121.jpg
DH grabbed mango shooters, pistachio creme brulee, tiramisu, chocolate truffles, and a fruit tart, and hidden behind one of the shooters was a chocolate covered strawberry. He ate everything, loved all of it! He went back up for a second plate. I couldn't eat another bite after all that!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/122.jpg

His second plate consisted of mostly mango shooters. :laughing:
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/125.jpg
The desserts were plentiful and the buffet was constantly refreshed. It also seemed like it was ten o'clock and time for Wishes in no time at all. DH and I walked up to the railing for a better view and to make sure nobody stood in front of us. Many people stayed seated however and they were still able to see. The view was great from the Terrace. We left almost immediately after the fireworks ended so I'm not sure when the desserts were cleaned up. We would probably not do this party again as the desserts probably weren't worth the money you spend, but the view itself and the fact that you don't have to stand around for an hour for a good spot might be worth the money.

I of course did get the Tonga Toast as my entree. With the DxDP you also get two drinks with breakfast, so I got lilikoi juice :cloud9: and the mega berry smoothie. These two drinks are almost as good as the Tonga Toast. The mega berry smoothie is supposed to have antioxidants in it as well.

DH decided to try something different this time. For his drink he just got coffee and for his meal, he got the somoan which was poached eggs with hollandaise served over smoked pulled pork hash. Again, he loves hash, I'm not so crazy about it. He ended up loving this dish, though not as much as the Tonga Toast. He ended up eating the rest of mine that I could not finish (because man that toast is huge!), so he had the best of both worlds. :thumbsup2

For our first day in Epcot we had been going back and forth over which new restaurant to try. We finally decided on Les Chefs de France and glad we did. The restuarant opened at noon, which is when our ADR's were for. The line at the podium was really long, luckily once we got up to the podium and checked in, we were seated in 5 minutes.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/162.jpg

I don't remember our waiters name but he was gorgeous! Shhh don't tell DH. All the waiters in Chefs de France are so handsome. lol He seemed like he was new at his job, a little overly attentive but we didn't mind. For drinks I think I just ordered a water and DH got a coke. The usual. For my appetizer I ordered the imported cheese plate.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/164.jpg
This was really good, I love cheese though. I know there was a swiss and I honestly can't remember what other kinds of cheese were on it. They were really big pieces of cheese though, I didn't finish all of it or I would never have been able to eat lunch.

DH got the onion soup with gruyere cheese. He said it was very flavorful and cheesy. He really enjoyed this.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/163.jpg

As we were eating our appetizers Remy came to our table. I hadn't told DH about this part of the meal yet. He was so lifelike. Remy only stayed at each table for a minute or two but it definetly added to the experience of dining here. After Remy left our table, DH was determined to figure out how he was controlled, he figured it out fairly quickly. He can't just let magic be magic hes got to know how everything works. :rotfl:
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/165.jpg

For my entree, I was really debating between the baked macaroni and cheese and the mahi mahi sandwich. Being on a fish kick this trip I went for the mahi mahi. The sandwich was ok. It had peppers and onions which I didn't like the taste of combined with the fish. The bread was very good though, it was very soft and had light olive oil on top. The pommes frittes that came with the sandwich were delish!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/167.jpg

DH got the baked macaroni and cheese. I tried this and wished I had ordered it as well. Very cheesy but not too heavy like I was expecting and the portion was a good size as well.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/166.jpg

By the time dessert came around I was feeling really full so I went for something fairly light. I got the kiwi sorbet served with fresh fruit and an elephant ear. This was perfect, I loved the kiwi flavor and having fresh fruit was a nice change.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/170.jpg

DH got the crepe filled with cinnamon, apple, vanilla ice cream and apple caramel sauce. I think he was expecting something much tastier than this. He said he didn't really taste the apple, all he could taste was the caramel sauce.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/169.jpg

Overall we had a nice lunch here. DH really liked it and wants to add it to our must do list. I'm not as convinced but we'll probably go back sometime.

Originally we weren't planning on trying La Cava de Tequila but we were waiting for our fastpass times to come so we decided to head in and see what all the hype was about. http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/191.jpgSurprisingly, there was no wait for a seat. It's tiny in there though! We were a little uncomfortable though, as the table next to us, consisting of 4 adults were all a little more than tipsy. They were very loud and kept looking over in our direction. Luckily they left about 15 minutes after we were seated. We did have a waiter come over to take our drink orders but we wanted water too which he forgot so Dh ended up going right up to the bar to get some, it was much easier than waiting as our table was only a few steps from the bar. DH usually isn't a big fan of alcohol but he does like frozen margaritas. He opted for the mango margarita. Which I actually did not get a picture of, I guess I was too busy with my selection. He liked it, way more booze than the margaritas you get from the stand right outside.

I decided to try the margarita flight though I was a little nervous about the jalepeno one. :scared:

The prickly pear, cucumber and wild passion fruit were awesome. :thumbsup2 I wasn't too crazy about the jalepeno or avacado margaritas. I just don't like the idea of chunks in my margarita. I took a few small sips of these two but I pretty muched passed on them and ended up drinking a good portion of DH's margarita instead. ;) We didn't get any appetizers as we were still pretty full from lunch. Next time I want to try the guacamole and see if it's any good. If we come back next time I will probably try a regular margarita in a flavor I'm sure that I will like, I hated wasting so much this time. This place was a nice spot to relax and have a good drink but it's a little cramped.

After we left "The Ditch" we headed to China where I had to try a Peach Oolong Tea. OMG this was awesome! Pretty much frozen Peach Schnapps. Not a ton of booze in it but great nonetheless.

Teppan Edo has been one of DH's favorite places to eat at Disney. Mostly in part because he never realized that we had Japanese hibachi restaurants back at home. Having said this, a few weeks before we went to Disney, we went to a Japanese Steakhouse near us. The food was terrible, there was frozen peas and carrots mixed in instead of fresh veggies, awful sauce. Anyways, I think the experience we had at our local hibachi restaurant kind of ruined Teppan Edo a little bit for DH.

We were seated right away when we checked in for our reservation. They sat us in the back room which I wasn't too crazy about, there were only two grills in this room. I like the rooms with four grills better, it just feels more open and your not sitting as close to the other tables.

DH and I both started off with edamame for our appetizers. It came out cold and unsalted. Every time I've ever ordered edamame, its been served hot and salted. They were not very good, we were thinking about sending them back as I doubt they were supposed to be cold, but by it took too long for our server to come back to the table so we just ate them.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/196.jpg

Before we finished our appetizers, our chef came out. I ordered the chicken, and DH ordered the filet mignon.

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/198.jpg

Both our dishes were delicious, I didn't feel like the portions were big enough though. They gave us three dipping sauces for our meals, I don't remember what kinds they were but there was a ginger sauce that was so good with the chicken.

For dessert I decided to be brave and try the chocolate ginger cake. I thought it was ok, the taste of ginger with chocolate was hard to describe, a little weird for me.

So originally we were supposed to have breakfast at Boma this morning. Boma breakfast is one of my favorite places to go. We decided to take the walkway from BLT to MK and then wait for a bus going to AKL. Our ADR was at 8:30 so we headed to MK around 7:15. The walk was only about 10 minutes. And then we waited, and waited and waited for a bus. There were tons of buses dropping off at MK and a few were picking up too. But none were coming to pickup for AKL. We waited for an hour! There was even a bus dispatcher who across the way had seen us waiting for so long yet did nothing. We were so mad, as we decided to head back to BLT and just grab a bus to AK (as we had missed our ADR by now) DH even asked the disbatcher why no bus came? He was very rude to DH and pretty much told him too bad. :eek: Not a good way to start off the day, plus I was pretty bummed that we had missed our ADR. So anyways...hungry and upset we decided to just go to AK and see what we could find for breakfast there.

We were headed to just get muffins from kusafiri coffee shop but on the way we saw that Pizzafari was open for breakfast.

I ordered the adult breakfast platter which was scrambled eggs with hash browns, biscuit, and bacon. I guess it was just your average breakfast platter but I was starving so it tasted much better and I ate every bite!

DH got the breakfast pizza. He loved this as well, but we both agreed that Boma would have been much better. Oh well, next time.

Also, on the DxDp two drinks per person are included with breakfast. I think that it's such a waste. I only wanted an apple juice but I got a water too. I brought it with me for later but by the time I got around to drinking it, it was warm anyways. I rather get dessert with breakfast (like I hadn't had enough already this trip. :laughing:)

Not that this helps you any NOW ~ but when we were there in January I was talking with a CM about how hard it is to make it to and ADR using Disney Transportation and be on time ~ especially for a breakfast from one resort to another (like you BLT -->AKL) Well he said that your ADR is good for up to TWO HOURS after your ADR time. I would never abuse it ~ but if you are gonna miss something you really want ~ you should still go. Next time that is.

Not that this helps you any NOW ~ but when we were there in January I was talking with a CM about how hard it is to make it to and ADR using Disney Transportation and be on time ~ especially for a breakfast from one resort to another (like you BLT -->AKL) Well he said that your ADR is good for up to TWO HOURS after your ADR time. I would never abuse it ~ but if you are gonna miss something you really want ~ you should still go. Next time that is.

:) Been reading along and loving it! Getting me so excited for my trip!

That's a really good tip. Thank you. I get such anxiety when we are a few minutes late for an ADR, so this will put me at ease a little next time.

Loving these review! They are making me even more super antsy for my own trip :goodvibes

Thanks for reading! I love reading dining reviews before my trip too, makes me change my ADR's a million times though.

Oh that looks yummy. I never thought about Pizzafari for breakfast. Can you customize the breakfast pizza or what you see is what you get?

Pizzafari was really good for a quick breakfast, plus we were just about the only ones in there. The breakfast pizza only comes one way, but it was yummy.

Great reviews so far. Great Pictures as well. I tried to do this last trip and I kept forgetting and would remember after we already started to eat.

Quick question.... The bread with macademia nut butter is that only at Kona for dinner? My MIL keeps talking about bread that she had at the Poly... I have an ADR for Ohana dinner would I be able to get it there.... Or should I switch my ADR to Kona?

I believe that the bread from Ohanas is pineapple bread not the macademia nut bread. We've never tried Ohanas but Kona is a great way to go if you switch your ADR.

I can't see the pictures either. But this might be a good thing bc I absolutely LOVE the breakfast pizza!!! A friend of mine dreams about it :rotfl: And now I know that they also have it at Pizzafari... SO EXCITED!!!

Sorry you missed your ADR... stupid busses!

Oh I know, those darn WDW buses. :headache:

love the reviews! Great pictures.
can you tell me what was on the breakfast pizza?

The breakfast pizza had a country gravy, cheese, scambled eggs, and peppers on it. I believe they cook them to order so they are fresh every time.

Our day in AK we had made an ADR at Yak & Yeti and I was so excited to try this restaurant. We were seated right away and seated upstairs.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/242.jpgI really was looking forward to trying a Yak Attack, but I just wasn't in the mood for an adult beverage that day. I just got a water and DH a coke.

For my appetizer, I really wanted to try the seared ahi tuna. I had never tried ahi tuna before so I was excited to see how it was. Wow it was so good! It was chilled ahi tuna and it had great flavor. DH hates any kind of fish and he was so grossed out by this but I thought it was fantastic!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/244.jpg

I recommended the lettuce cups to DH after good reviews here on the Disboards. They had a very different flavor (maple tamarind) but they were very good.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/243.jpg

For my entree I ordered the chicken lo mein. Now, we have a chinese food restaurant back at home called Singapore that has awesome Chicken Lo Mein so I was afraid that I would be disappointed with this dish. I was wrong. It was great, lots of chicken and the size of this dish was huge! I wish I could have taken the rest of it with me but walking around the park all, it wouldn't have been a good idea.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/246.jpg

DH ordered the baby back ribs. He loved these! They just fell off the bone. They're his favorite ribs at WDW now.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/245.jpg

For dessert, we both ordered the fried wontons. These are as good as everyone says! Cream cheese wontons with vanilla ice cream and honey vanilla drizzle. I feel like I've been using the words great and awesome too much this review, but really our whole meal was perfect!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/247.jpg

We will definetly be going back to Yak & Yeti next trip, and possibly every trip. It was that good!

I was sooo looking forward to this reservation as I had heard many good things about Citricos and the menu looked awesome! We arrived about 20 minutes early and we were seated right away. I can't remember our servers name but he was very informative about the menu and he was also very friendly. Here's our view of the GF from the restaurant.

and our personalized menu with a pretty floating candle in the middle of the table.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/267.jpg

I started off with a Sangria. I love trying Sangria at all the different restaurants, its always good but always has a different taste. We also got our bread and butter. One of the breads we were given had olives in it, and I'm not a fan of olives normally but this was really good!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/268.jpg

For my appetizer, I ordered the sauteed shrimp - Lemon, White Wine, Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese. This was fantastic! The blend of the feta and shrimp was perfect.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/270.jpg

DH ordered the duck confit-smoked duck breast with tomato and egg fettucini. The duck was very tender and had a great flavor to it.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/269.jpg

For my entree I ordered the oak grilled swordfish with crispy potato pastilla and sauteed spinach. Wow! This was the freshest piece of fish I have ever eaten. So flaky and tender. Delicious! DH actually isn't a fish person, at all but he tried a piece of this and he even loved this!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/272.jpg

DH ordered the filet sicilian. Oak-grilled Filet of Beef with sweet vidalia onions, peppadew and banana peppers, quattro formaggic crushed potatoes and veal glace de viande. He loved it. :love: He said that it was the best filet he's ever had. He likes his filet's well done and this was actually still very tender yet well done. He was very impressed by this.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/271.jpg

We both ate every single morsel of both our appetizers and entrees, they were that good!

For dessert, we both ordered the warm chocolate banana tart. This was fantastic too! Like a lava cake with bananas inside. Sooo good!
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/273-1.jpg

We left here full and satisfied. This was by far the best meal we've ever had at Disney. We ended up spending 2 1/2 hours here we enjoyed ourselves so much.

For breakfast we just had muffins and bananas from Contempo Cafe. It was a quick, cheap breakfast. Nothing exciting.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/274.jpg

For lunch we went to Tangierine Cafe and DH and I both got the Shawarma chicken platters. On the dining plan they came with a side and a dessert and drink as well. We both got french fries and baklava. The platter was excellent as always. I love the chicken they serve here. They had awesome french fries as well.

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/289.jpg

Then both DH and I got Kaki Gori's. I got the tangerine and he got the melon flavor.

Then we were still hungry. :laughing: Not sure how but...we went to Sunshine Seasons. I got the butterfinger cheesecake. It was ok, didn't have enought Butterfinger IMO.

Your Citricos meal looks absolutely delicious. Even from a pic, you can see the swordfish is perfectly cooked. It's too bad I don't think we'll be hitting Citricos this year.

Tangerine Cafe is awesome. It was the only place we ate twice last year. I don't think we were given an extra side under the meal plan, though (not that we needed anymore food!). Were there any other choices besides fries?

We got all dressed up and ready for this ADR.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/329.jpg

We went to sit in the lounge before our reservation but before we could even sit, our pager went off. We had a 9:20 reservation for the 10:00 Wishes. First, I started off with yet another Sangria. This one was ok, the one at Citricos was much better.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/330.jpg

For my appetizer, I decided to try the goat cheese ravioli. I'm not sure why I got this as I'm not crazy about goat cheese to begin with. I figured I had been trying new things so why not go for it. I didn't really like it, if you love goat cheese its good.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/334.jpg

DH got the cheese flat bread. He had gotten this before and loved it, and it was just as good as before. Probably the best part of our meal.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/333.jpg

Wishes started right before we received our entrees. We were seated right next to the window so we had a great view. I attempted to take some pictures but this is how they came out...

Me anxiously waiting for the fireworks.

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/337.jpg

For my entree, I ordered the sweet potato-ricotta tortollini without mushrooms. I did not like this dish one bit. I didn't think that the flavor of the sauce and the sweet potato blended very well. I expected the sweet potatoes to be sweet (obviously) but the whole dish was very sweet. Just not very good. :sad2:
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/336.jpg

DH got the oak fired filet of beef and he didn't like it very much. There was fat in his piece unlike the one he had gotten at Citricos. He ate it (as he eats everything) but overall wasn't impressed.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/335.jpg

For dessert, I was really hoping that The Original was still on the menu, which it was not. So, I settled for the bananas and caramel. This was alright, but I think after having such a sweet dinner, I just really wasn't in the mood for a sugary dessert.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/339.jpg

DH ordered Valrhona Chocolate Cake which once again was only ok. He much prefered the warm banana chocolate tart from Citricos. Actually, after our wonderful meal at Citricos it set the mark for our meals the rest of the week. DH compared everything to our great food there.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/338.jpg

DH also discovered that since I had only ordered water and alcohol for my drink, we still had one drink left that was included on the dining plan so he ordered a shot of espresso.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/340.jpg
At this time, it was 11:00 at night so I have no idea why he thought that it was a good idea to get espresso. :confused3 He ended up walking around the hotel for an hour or so because he couldn't fall asleep later, but thats a different story. :laughing:

We would not return here, for two dining credits the food just did not stack up. This was our second time dining here and we were disappointed both times. While the view is great, our little secret is that the view at Narcoossees is much better as well as the food.

I ordered the PB&J milkshake. I thought this sounded really weird before I tried it for the first time, but if you haven't tried this yet, do it! It is sooo delicious! The only pic I got of this is in the background of my next picture...my chicken noodle soup that I got for my appetizer. This was pretty good, tasted like the same soup from Kona Cafe. DH got the same thing for his appetizer.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/373.jpg
Our waitress this time was great. Last time we went here, our waiter was very boring and didn't say or do much, but this time our "cousin" was very playful. DH got yelled at for putting his elbows on the table and we got a card signed by all our surrounding table mates for our anniversary. Very fun.
For my entree, I ordered the smoked turkey stacked sandwich. This was huge! It was very good and I loved the multi grain bread that it was on. I was only able to eat half of it and DH ended up eating the other half.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/375.jpg

DH ordered the pot roast which he absolutely loves! :love: He ate every bite of this too and was hoping he would get a clean plate button but no such luck.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/374.jpg

For dessert, nothing really caught my eye, the dessert selection here is kind of lacking IMO. I decided to try the Smores. It was ok, though I'm not really crazy about marshmallows to begin with.
http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/377.jpg

http://i491.photobucket.com/albums/rr273/hockeygal713/Disney%20April%202010/376.jpg

We even got an extra special treat for our anniversary, even though by this point we were once again too stuffed to eat much of it.

Tink, how do you keep track of how much your meals cost? We are doing the dining plan for the first time, and I would like to keep track so that we can compare if it is the best choice for our family. Do you still get a receipt that shows how much the meal costs??? BTW, great review, you have inspired me to try some new things this trip!

Ok I'm back, I've been procrastinating on finishing my review. I will finish it though, I promise. It's just hard coming on the disboards when our next trip isn't for so long!

So, onto dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby. When we walked in here, the place was absolutely packed! It took a good half hour for us to even get a seat (this was with ADR's, they were turning away people without them). When we were seated we didn't see our server for about 15 minutes or so, it was so busy and so loud in there. Though I guess this was partially bad judgement on my part as it was a Fantasmic night, which we originally planned to go see but the crowd scared us away.

Anyways, for my appetizer I ordered the seared day boat sea scallops. This was very good, but too small. It had black bean corn pudding and mango papaya salsa which I didn't like. The flavors did not blend together very well. I also got some sort of fruity cocktail to start off with.

DH ordered the blue jumbo lump crab cake even though he's not really a seafood fan, he thought he would give it a try. It was ok, I ended up finishing it for him though.

For my entree, I ordered the split roasted half chicken which was ehhh. haha There's not really any other word I can think to describe it. It wasn't anything special, I've eaten better chicken at BOston Market.

DH got the char grilled filet of beef. He thought that it was rather dry with not much flavor. He wasn't very happy after a not so good appetizer and even worse entree.

For dessert, I ordered the creme brulee because nothing else on the menu really stuck out. It wasn't warm, and it wasn't cold, it was kind of room temperature like it had just been sitting out. I took a few bites and I was just ready to get out of this restaurant.

DH ordered the grapefruit cake and this was probably his favorite part of the meal. He really did like this.

We won't go back to this restaurant anytime soon, between the slow service the the below average food it's definetly not worth the 2TS credits.

Cost-$113.42 Cost so far-$1033.52

I love your reviews!!!

I got the same chicken entree as you when I went to BD in January and it was quite possibly the worst chicken I have ever had. Mine was served slightly colder than room temperature and was just overwhelmingly lemony (I usually love all things lemon but this was terrible) and was also very greesy. From my experience I have to agree this restaurant is just not worth it.

Thank everyone for hanging in there! I'm glad I still have some readers!

Crystal Palace was our scheduled breakfast, we love this place! I'm not a huge fan of Pooh and friends but the breakfast is so good, I could care less which characters are there. Here's our nearly empty Main Street on our way into our ADR.

We were seated immediately though our server was a little slow throughout the meal. My first plate, I just got my favorites, breakfast pizza, puffed french toast and strawberries and cream. Oh and a few cubes of cheese as well. Yum! These are the best things in the buffet. IMO

DH filled up his first plate with breakfast pizza, puffed french toast and hash. He loves the hash here!

While we were eating, all the characters came around pretty quickly. Heres a few of our pics.

For my second plate, I had cheesy potatoes, bacon, a Mickey waffle and scrambled eggs. Once again everything was great.

DH's second plate consisted of biscuits and gravy, more hash and a ham cheese and pepper omlet.

We did wait quite awhile for the check when we were done which was a little irritating. DH waited for the check and I ran and grabbed fastpasses for Space Mountain. This is one of our must do's for breakfast. Love Crystal Palace!

Total-$44.71 Total so far-$1078.23

Up next...our freezing cold lunch at LTT

Sorry The Brown Derby wasn't so great-- I don't think their menu is so hot, either. I'm with you on CP-- not a big Pooh fan, but there's nothing like an early morning MK reservation with great food!
