Ok thought I'd start this thread because there are so many traditions that we have and many of them are meals and snacks.

- Dinner at Le Cellier - must have the 7oz Filet, medium, with red wine reduction and herb butter, and those super yummy cream cheese mashed potatoes :) and pretzel bread of course!! Haven't tried the cheese soup yet.

- Les Chefs de France - Lunch - French Onion Soup, Escargot, dying to try their mac and cheese :)

- La Cantina de San Angel - Margaritas, churros and a conga for me :) (not legal drinking age in Florida but I am at home :( that sucks lol)

- Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Bars

- Popcorn from Main Street for my Mom

- Treats from Gooding's, Dove chocolate, Hershy assorted lil chocolate bars, jelly belly sours, little bottles of coke :)

- Haven't tried Dole Whips, Citrus Swirls or Beaver Tails yet (yes I know I'm deprived lol)

- Lunch at Columbia Harbour House - Chicken Strips and Fries, so simple but in my opinion they taste the best here of anywhere in WDW

- Lunch at Flame Tree BBQ, yummy ribs and spicy onion rings

- Dinner at Sunshine Season Food Fair, baked potatoes with cheese and bacon mmmmm and a yummy warm gooey toll house cookie

- 50's Prime Time - Golden Fried Chicken, onion rings, chocolate shake, s'mores....need I say more? *drool*

Ok I' sooooooo hungry now and I'm going on the south beach diet in a week LOL. Well 3 weeks till Disney, two weeks of no carbs will make everything taste that much better! :)

Dole Whips at MK

Smores - 50s Prime Time Cafe

Those are my only two must haves right now. I did not know all the tricks the last time I went. Now that I have found out all the tricks from reading these boards, I am going to eat good next time I go! :p :p :tongue:

Looking forward to Beaver Tails, Le Cellier, and Beaches and Cream just to name a few. :)

What a fun thread! I was just thinking today about how planning where we eat is as much fun as planning on what we'll do!

So our must-do's include:

'Ohana - sadly, we missed this on our last trip because I was in WDW with my show choir and couldn't sneak awy to the Polynesian for a long dinner - we ended up at Kona at the last minute. But we LOVE 'ohana and I can't wait until October because that's when I'll be there again!

Crystal Palace - we've had dinner here several times and LOVE the food and the character interaction. Next time we're planning on tring breakfast as well.

Pecos Bills - I absolutely MUST have a cheeseburger and fries with cheese sauce to dip them in on each and every visit!

Dole Whip - yummy!

Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Bar - yummy yummy!

Beaver Tail - this was CLOSED when we were there in February. Looks like I have a lot of eating to do in october!

Boma - this is one of my DH's favorites, so it is on our list for either October or our July 05 trip.

I love to find new "must-do's" and I try to taste something new on each visit!!!

04-30-2004, 03:02 PM
Dinner at Le Cellier (although we have to miss it in July since I let my brother and family pick the resturants:( ) Already on the list for December though. Cheese soup with pretzel bread sticks YUM

Lunch at Kringla Bakeri-gotta have that almond, frosting covered soft pretzel!!! will not be missing this in July!!!

Our big discussion is whether Artist Point will be a "regular". I loved that berry cobbler.

You can't have toooo many regulars, or you don't have time to try some new ones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05-01-2004, 11:05 AM

How about the hot dogs at Casey's in the MK.

Our family has some traditions as well...
Lunch at Columbia Harbor House-I always have the chicken strips and completely agree that they taste better here than anywhere else in WDW. Others get the fish and chips and the clam chowder.
Dinner at Rose and Crown-for me it's English Pie, for others more fish and chips.
Dole whip-many times during the entire stay, sometimes we even make a special trip just for the whip!
Pecos Bill-not sure what the draw is here, but we always end up getting some kind of quick lunch and rootbeer floats!
And a new tradition, started just last year, churros at the Cantina in Mexico...now I'm hungry!

05-04-2004, 10:38 AM
Some of our usuals are:

Lunch in the Teppanyaki

Burgers in Pinnocchio Haus with a table overlooking IASMW

Dinner at Trails End We have camped the last two time I have been there so it was easy. We also went day for dinner after we spent the day at BB using one of our pluses.

Frozen Bananas and Mickey ice creams

Pizza in MK at the Plaza Pavillion. Open air dining overlooking the castle.

Our new favorite is 50's Prime Time. We loved it when we went for the first time this past Aug.

Yum, this thread is making me hungry! Here are my favorites:

Dinner at 'Ohana--the marinated meats are delicious, and I love the little dumplings and pineapple with caramel sauce

Breakfast at Concourse Steakhouse--Sticky Mickeys--enough said!

Lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern--the Colony Salad is the best salad I have ever had

Dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern--yep, we love dinner here too; the food is right up our alley, and the rolls are sooo good

Dinner at Kona Cafe--I love the Pan Asian pasta and the Koko Puffs for dessert

Dessert at Artist Point--the berry cobbler is FANTASTIC!

Lunch at Le Cellier--the sirloin burger is so delicious, and I love the dense bun they put it on; plus, that cheese soup with pretzel breadsticks can't be beat

Lunch at Rainforest Cafe--despite it's frequent criticism here, I like this restaurant a lot; the Bamba's BBQ wrap with chicken is yummy!

Our must do is we ALWAYS try at least one new sitdown restaurant. It's our "big adventure." DH and I each chose a new place for our January trip -- Narcoossee's and Boma -- and we ended up at the Plaza Restaurant one afternoon which was also new to us. All three were fantastic! We're not fussy, so decent service and good food will always win us over.

On our mother's day trip we're trying almost all places we've never been to -- Grand Floridian Cafe, Le Cellier for lunch (we've been for dinner but the menu is different), Jiko (I can't wait!!!), and Boma for breakfast (again, we've been for dinner but can't wait to experience the breakfast).

We have lots of favorites -- DH loves the honey sesame chicken at Nine Dragons, I must have a Dole Whip and Rice Cream on every trip. And if I could afford to, I'd have the chocolate souffle at Victoria & Albert's on every trip!

05-05-2004, 07:06 PM
We love the salmon at Tusker House (Animal Kingdom). A value meal includes the salmon, a big drink and coupons for ice cream/popcorn and a drink later. It is a value!

06-01-2004, 12:45 AM
We are still exploring the restaurants of the World, but have 2 must dos and 1 try to do:

must do: Sci Fi in MGM 1st afternoon or night and Wolfgang Pucks in DTD. The food at Wolfgang Pucks is wonderful and seating outside is a nice atmoshpere for beginning an evening at DTD.
try to do: 50s Prime Time in MGM. Last time we didn't have a great experience, but usually it is a lot of fun. Might skip this time.

I want to try Les Chefs de France, Spoodles, Cape May Cafe, ESPN, Swan and Dolphin restaurants, and maybe Artist Pointe this time around. Also think Narcoosees looks nice. We might also go back to la Cellier in Canada and we have a PS for 1900 Park Fare. The food was fantastic.

06-02-2004, 06:08 PM
Love the Mickey Rice Krispie treats on a stick. Have to have one every time we're there.

06-02-2004, 06:17 PM
Dole Whips at MK

Iced pretzel with almonds at Kringla Bakery in Epcot

That struedel sauce at Biergarten
