Need Outside the Parks ADR suggestions
 
My sister and I are going for the Glass Slipper Challenge in February, and trying to make a few ADRS while we are there. We are staying at BWV from Friday-Monday AM, and will have a car while we are there. We will not be getting park tickets. I do not like food that is too exotic, so we are trying to find a blend of interesting and familiar.

Here is our current plan:
Arrive Friday, and have dinner at Downtown Disney-here is where we are looking for suggestions...currently thinking of Raglan Road or T-Rex

Saturday-Run the 10k, breakfast afterwards at Cape May Cafe...pretty sure we want this one. Suggestions for a QS dinner in the Epcot resort area that evening?

Sunday-Run the princess half, then we'd like to do dinner in the MK resort area (probably on the monorail, though we haven't ruled out Wilderness Lodge) that night so we can see Wishes from the beach at the Poly after dinner. I know Ohana is the obvious choice here, but looking for other suggestions as well.

I'm also open to any suggestions for great QS places outside the parks.

Thanks for your help!

I really like Raglan Road, so I highly recommend that one. Cooke's of Dublin (connected to Raglan Road) is also good, as is Earl of Sandwich.

At the Epcot area resorts, there aren't a lot of QS options, except the BW Bakery (it looks yummy, but I haven't been there since it re-opened) and the Marketplace at the Beach Club. I think I would wander back to DTD if that's feasible.

For the Poly, I do like 'Ohana. If you want something a little more upscale at WL, I would think about Artist Point. The food is very good and you'll have a chance to look around the WL.

Our favorite, hands down, is Raglan Road. We did have a meal at T-Rex and were pleased with it - I had a fish special that was very good.

Another vote for Raglan Rd!
And you can go to Babycakes or Ghiradelli afterward for a great treat!!!

T-Rex was also great when we went, so either way you can't go wrong!

Pretty much no QS options in the Epcot resort area.

I'm not sure if this list is considered QS since I do not use the DDP,
-Hurricane Hanna's at YC/BC pool
-Leaping Horse Libations Boardwalk pool
-Beaches & Cream at YC/BC really not sure if TS or QS

Boardwalk Bakery has soups, salads, sandwiches! Their lobster roll looks very good!!

Another vote for Raglan Road on Friday. We love it there.

The Beach Club Marketplace also has Flatbreads and soup and sandwiches.

There is a sticky at the top of this thread with info on all the QS options in the Epcot Resort area. There are more than you might think if you are not looking to use DDP credits.

Good Luck with the races.

Also, the Crew's Cup Lounge at the Yacht Club serves food. They have a menu of their own and you may be able to get some things from Yachtsman there as well, according to allears. Hubby and I are planning on trying this out next week :)

Don't forget about the Swan/Dolphin restaurants. They have the Fresh Mediterranean Market, Picabu, and the Fountain which are CS (well the Fountain is not technically CS, but the food is similar).

Another great choice is Wolfgang Puck Express. It's technically a CS but they deliver the food to you and the food is really good! Another one of our fav TS choices it Wolfgang Puck Cafe. Great food! House of Blues is good and you can usually get a discount certificate at Restaurant.com

Saturday-Run the 10k, breakfast afterwards at Cape May Cafe...pretty sure we want this one. Suggestions for a QS dinner in the Epcot resort area that evening? The newly remodeled BW Bakery

Sunday-Run the princess half, then we'd like to do dinner in the MK resort area (probably on the monorail, though we haven't ruled out Wilderness Lodge) that night so we can see Wishes from the beach at the Poly after dinner. I know Ohana is the obvious choice here, but looking for other suggestions as well. My choice would be Kona. I like the food better than 'Ohana. Watching the fw on Poly Beach is one of our favorite things to do after eating.

I'm also open to any suggestions for great QS places outside the parks. As mentioned above, WPE, both locations though Marketplace has more options and seating. We like the food court at Contempo-Contempo Cafe. Also we love the food court at POFQ-great pot roast, 1/2 chicken and of course beignets!;) Cookes of Dublin is another great CS

Thanks for your help! You're welcome.

Il Mulino @ the Swan - Our Il Mulino Experience with photos

Monorail resort area dinner:
The Wave - Our Dinner Experience at the Wave with photos

And just to add more fuel to fire, our favorite DTD restaurant..

Thanks for all the suggestions!!
Sounds like we will definitely have to go with Raglan Road on Friday...any tips about that particular restaurant? Best time to make ADRs for, ect

We will not have the dining plan, so that gives us a little more flexibility reguarding QS meals....anywhere we can grab a meal without having restaurant reservations is great. Thanks for the idea of checking out the swan/dolphin food....I always seem to overlook those :scratchin

Would you recommend Kona for breakfast or dinner? I forgot to mention in my original post that we are considering going there for breakfast on Monday before we leave....I've been dying to try Tonga Toast!!!!

I also love the idea of a QS meal at POFQ...I wanted to stay at this resort before we decided on BWV, so what a perfect excuse to check it out::yes::

The Wave was definitely one I was interested in, and your review has me leaning more towards it-thanks!
