We just got back from 6 nights at Pop Century on the free dining plan.
All I can say is FAb-u-lous !!!
Little prolog:
Me-Jason 34 my 8th trip to WDW. I have 70 Disney restaurants under my belt.
Wife- Patty 25 her 5th trip. NEVER ate at any sit down restaurants EVER, what a shame.
Married 3 years and this is our first Disney trip together. So I had to let her eat around the world.
This is the first time I had used any dining plan. Food was in abundance.
Since the plan was free for us it was well worth it (when is free food not).

Now go grab your favorite snack, loosen your belts, fetch a bib and let’s get your eat on!!!!

Legend:

C.S. = Counter service
T.S. = Table service
Paid cash= means I paid cash for that item and did not use any credits.
All snacks will be pictured together at the end of the reports. I will not list them the days they are eaten (to much eating going on to remember where and when).

I think it does. But if it doesn't don't let something as minor like that steer you from ordering it.

Wow, thanks for pulling this to the top - like someone else said, it confirmed my ADR choices -

so glad you posted the positive rave reviews of Ohana - not for me - the food just didnt look good!! :rotfl2: Different strokes for different folks!! At least now I dont feel guilty for not going to Ohana's!! And when we were there in Oct last year, they did not have shrimp wontons, just the fried things!! I agree the banana fosters/pudding YUMMY!! Steak ok - but slow to get more for us the service was just poor - when another CM was noticing it - and we bought extra drinks - very disappointing!! (for us - again, different strokes!!)

We're going to try WCC for the first time - and your pictures did confirm, dd wanted to know about those nachos!! :rotfl2: Thanks!!

I remember having one of those at Animal Kingdom. It was from a cart outside either the Pangani Trail or the Maharajah Jungle Trek. It was scrumptious!! :thumbsup2

Let me tell you, I could tell by your wonderful pics which meals you were going to rate poor....it showed in the pics. The MM's food looked very dry so did the Boma pics actually. Funny how that works, huh?

I can't wait to try some fried chicken at 50's Prime Time!

It concerns me slightly, Toyman, that you sat down, ate, and left again, in 15 minutes.

Is that normal for 50's Prime Time!? Because seriously, that's quicker than I would take to eat at McDonalds.

It makes me think they must have the chicken sitting out the back, pre-cooked, ready to go. As well as the veggies. In which case, ew! That's a bit too much like Kentucky Fried Chicken for my liking.

We did get there right after they opened,so they must have had some chicken just made (since it's popular) but it was fresh & tasty.I was very surprised how quick the meal was.I have eaten here many times before and they were never
that fast.I think since we only had the chicken and split it no less thats why
are meal was soooo fast.
Go enjoy the place you won't be sorry.

Question: We have an ADR for b'fast our last day at Maya Grill but have been seriously thinking about changing to Boma's for breakfast. We will be on the dining plan. What do you think? You said Boma's was not worth the money, but we are eating for free (going in Sept.).

I Paid out of pocket for Boma,it was our last day there and used all our credits.
So even still I didn't think it's worth 2 credits,but if you really have extra credits than try it.I like breakfast buffets but it just didn't do it for me.There was
nothing special on the buffet either.Just typical stuff.I was expecting something
more & different.

I hope you guys have a great wonderful fantastic trip! Thanks again for putting so much effort into sharing WDW's bounty with the rest of us!

Also, GREAT... I was sure of that myself...no label, no calories (at least at WDW).

I look forward to your next dining report (will you be posting it to this thread?).
