I'm new at this, be gentle(Dining Review) COMPLETED

Hello All:

I have been OBSESSED with reading dining reviews that you all have been posting for at least the last year. They are wonderful. Although I've been to WDW over 40 times in my life, I have never thought to do this. I, for the first time, am going to venture to do a dining review. If I'm not to nervous and my newlywed DH does not kill me, I am also going to try to get in some pictures! Woo hoo!

Cast of Characters:

Me (35) newly wed and disney veteran. I was lucky enough to be raised on Disney and have gone to California, Disneyland Paris, and WDW over 40 times. I am an addict. I will eat just about anything, except steak. I know, weird!

DH(32) newly wed who thinks I'm nuts! This will be only his second trip EVER to WDW. He loves it, and can't wait to hit it all up again. He is a meat and potatoes type of a guy. He is in no way into seafood or anything daring....poor guy!

DM(67) She has been to WDW so many times, but is not as much of a fan as I am. She always went because she had to. Another very limited eater. She likes things bland, and she is not adventurous!

DSister (39) She is a Dis veteran as well. She's been there done that. She's a little slower now than usual...was diagnosed with MS 7 years ago. She's like me and will eat ANYTHING! That's my girl!

DNephew(12) He's my boy! Will eat and do anything. Not really picky at all. He's going to be probably 6'6' and have a football player's build, so he'll eat his food and whatever else we don't eat! This is his first trip.

DNiece(8) She is a tiny little thing! Very picky eater! She won't eat much, which means her brother can eat her food! lol

We are on the basic dining plan. I don't know which snacks or quick service we will be at..that will be a surprise, but here are our table service.

Tutto Italia(dinner)
Kona Cafe(breakfast)
'Ohana(dinner)
Mama Melrose
Les Chefs de France
Raglan Road
Chef Mickeys
Citricos(just dh and I)

Some new ones and some old stand bys...we shall see how it goes...wish me luck! This might be a bumpy ride! lol

I try, and try to tell him, but he just gets embarrassed! I'm going to break him of it if I spend the entire trip trying. Maybe I'll just bribe him with some caramel from Caramel Kuche!

Sounds good so far... I've only eaten at the bakery for breakfast (they have great egg croissant sandwiches). Might try lunch (that toasted roast beef sandwich) one day. Thanks for the info!!

I'm about to reverse it in October. Taking my brother, SIL, her mother, and my nephew (4) and niece (2). I have to get my adult time in this trip!

April 16--Tutto Italia

[IMG][/IMG]
Okay...so we stayed at BWV; therefore, I booked many of my meals in Epcot. It is so close and convenient..how could we go wrong?

First dinner was at Tutto Italia. We had a 6:10 ADR. We arrived at 6, and were seated immediately. We were the second table the minute you walked into the restaurant. We weren't even in the main dining room, which was awesome because it was nice and quite. The atmosphere was fab as was everyone who worked there. All very nice servers. To be honest..we had amazing servers..except for France...but that's a story for another day!

So I have no pictures of the meals, but I finally remembered to take pictures when it came to dessert...then I was right on top of it!

Me--Brasato Di Manzo Al Vino Rosso - red wine braised short ribs, mashed potatoes, and vegetables $29....meh..it was okay...I felt like it was standard crockpotted pot roast, of which I am NOT a fan. It was good enough, I suppose. To drink..unsweetened iced tea and water(lots of lemon)

DH---Arrosto Di Vitello In Porchetta - veal roast, mushrooms, potatoes $29...He LOVED IT. He RAVED about it. If I hadn't been there he would have LICKED THE PLATE! He also had water with lemon.

DM---Costata Di Maiale Alla Valdostana - breaded pork chop, stuffed with prociutto ham, and fontina cheese $28....Shockingly, she HATED it. She said there was too much breading and the pork chop was dry..honestly..she's freakin goldie locks and nothing will ever be right...

DSister---Cannelloni al Forno - baked with spinach, ricotta, bechamel and parmesan cheese $25...She LOVED it too. Thought the cheese was amazing and really liked the bechamel sauce. It was just enough food too, not too much and not too little.

DNephew had the same as my husband..and loved it.

DNeice had children's salad and bow tie pasta. Let me just say that for a little girl who barely eats anything..this kid housed that food. There was nothing left at the end.

Now the desserts:

Tiramisu
Now the waiter told me I should try this and that it was sooooo good. I didn't love it. It was too soggy and didn't have enough flavor..and I love me some tiramisu...I was let down!

Cannoli My husband LOVED this. He claimed he won.(This is a game we play based on who chose best for dinner. According to him, he always wins! lol)

Dessert trio: Everyone else in my family got this. They raved about it. I was going to get this until my waiter talked me out of it, that jerk! lol

The Good:
According to my DH...everything he ate. Also the atmosphere and the servers.

The Bad:
My tiramisu and my short ribs, sadly.

The Ugly:
My mother says the pork...who knew the other white meat would be such a little bugger!

Up next...breakfast at Kona Cafe *sigh*
