BOO Dining Review- It's Halloween season at WDW!- UPDATED 12/17 CALI GRILL/COMPLETE!
 
Hi friends on Dining Review Board! I can't believe we are heading back to WDW in just a few days!!:yay:

Halloween season is my favorite time to visit WDW. This is our 6th trip during Halloween time, with 1 trip to Disneyland. We are looking forward to a few firsts this trip, with the biggest being our first trip to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

This trip will be me, Brian (DH), and Chase (DS). We took DD, Brianna, this past Spring so this is Chase's turn. The four of us haven't been on a vacation together since 2009. I've found I get to go to WDW twice as much if I take the kids separately. I use the excuse that there is such an age difference in them that they don't like to do the same things. (Chase is 15, Brianna is 6). SHH, don't tell Brian I'm just figuring out how to get to WDW more often.:thumbsup2

Anyway, here's a couple of pictures from 2010 from our Disneyland Photopass.

We will be arriving on Thursday, September 27th and coming home on Tuesday, October 2nd. This time we are staying at AKL. Chase and I have stayed at Kidani before, but none of us have stayed at the Jambo House. I'm really looking forward to trying all the wonderful restaurants AKL has available.

As far as eating, we usually try to do 1 to 2 TS places a day. Brian and I are usually up for eating most things, but Chase is super picky. His idea of being adventurous is having swiss instead of american cheese on his burger.:rolleyes: In my old age, I try not to eat too much so you will see me eating appys and salads as meals or trying to get the boys to split a meal with me. This way there's room for dessert.:thumbsup2

We are AP holders and have the TIW card so all our meals will be paid OPP.

Here's are tentative dining plans...

Thursday, 9/27- Rose and Crown Dinner- hoping we make it to this one as our plane lands at Sanford airport at 4:30 and our ADR is at 7:30. We've all eaten here before and enjoyed it. Hoping to stick around and see Illuminations. Updated 10/3- p.2

Friday, 9/28- I'm actually looking for a Chef Mickey or Ohana breakfast here, but haven't had luck. If not it will be Boma breakfast- Chase and I ate breakfast at Boma last year. We liked the variety and I'm looking forward to Brian trying it. He will love the banana foster bread pudding.Updated 10/7 p.3

Saturday, 9/29- Jiko Dinner- I'm most excited for this one. Jiko is a place I have sat here and drooled at the computer over the reviews I've read. Brian and I are doing this one alone as Chase isn't interested in the more exotic food. Looking forward to a romantic dinner!Updated 10/20 p.4

We love Disneyland so much! Can't wait to go back some day. I feel sure we will love Jiko. The problem will be deciding what to order.

I've got to post this one last picture from our Disneyland trip. I think I'm looking good next to the Old Hag.;)

I've got one change to make to our dining plans. I was able to get an early Chef Mickey breakfast on Friday so we switched our Boma breakfast to our departure day, Tuesday. Chase will be whining about getting up so early but I can't wait to eat there again!
