RAGLAN ROADS - 10/15 -- Confessions of a Foodaholic: A DDP First Timers Review.

Hello all! and welcome to my very first Disney Dining Review!! This is a companion to my TRIP REPORT. which you can go ahead and read too if you want!

So a little about us, its me and DBF on this trip, August 22-31. His first trip EVER and my first trip onsite and on the disney dining plan. We got FREE DINING! which was awesome! I wanted to do a dining review because when I was planning my vacay I spent alot of time drooling over food porn and reading reviews on this board! so thought I would contribute!

And as youll probably notice, we ate at PoP Century many times because we liked to just grab some food, relax and watch some TV while eating. It was a nice way to end the long hot days!

So onto the food! The delicious, the not so delicious and the raw chicken!

Day 1 : Arrival - Snacks and Drinks

Day 1 - Arrival Day Snacks and Drinks

Sorry this one is gunna be a boring one!

Our plane left from Buffalo at 7pm so we stopped and grabbed a quick bite for dinner beside the airport. I dont remember the name of the place but I do remember the food was pretty blah. I would have taken pictures buy my DBFs parents were with us and I didnt want them to think I was crazy .

So while we were waiting at the airport we grabbed some drinks.

DBF had a Sam Adams for the first time.

he said it tasted like juice. im not a beer drinker, but i tried a sip and i thought it just tasted like beer?

I got a malibu and orange which is my fave.

it was pretty good!

We arrived at PoP Century at 1am and we were feeling peckish but everything was closed for the night so we grabbed some chips from the vending machine.

we dont have this flavour in Canada and let me say they were YUMMMY! we use a few snack credits on these over the trip!

so thats about it... i cant believe i took pics of airport drinks and chips lol but a girls gotta do what she can for a dining review right?!


uP next: Our first Disney Meal, 1900 Park Fare for a late breakfast!

Great to read reviews from a fellow Canuck.

I would swear I've seen the Cheddar and Sour Cream chips somewhere but can't for the life of me remember

Sam Adams tastes like juice

Hope you continue to post your dbf beer reviews!!

I hear that the chip and snack companies have different flavors for different countries! I am not a fan of the vinegar flavored chips...

Day 1 - Brunch - First Disney Meal of the Trip



So since this was Craigs first trip and all, I wanted to plan soemthing special for our first morning, so I booked us a late 11am-ish breakfast at 1900 Park Fare. I thought it'd be a nice way to ease dbf into the whole disney thing and breakfast buffets are always yummy!

We loved loved loved the inside of this resturant! its so very pretty! Mary Poppins came to see us first, and she was great! Followed by Alice, Pooh and Tigger. We got to see all the characters twice! We liked Mary Poppins the best!


I'm sorry to say that for our first round of food I forgot to take pics until half way through Craig reminded me!
Sorry for the half eaten food pics! it wont happen again! promise!

My plate:

The mickey waffles were delish! i will give them that! I was really excited to try the Eggs Lobster Bennidet but I didn't like it at all.

Craigs plate:

Craig had tons of bacon and really liked the bacon, and potatoes... he didnt like the waffles much but he doesnt like waffles really anyways!

These are round two...

My plate:

The breakfast pizza also gets a thumbs down I had it again later at Chef Mickeys and thought it was great but this day .. not so much!

Craig's plate:

We shared this plate and it was very yummy!

Overall we enjoyed 1900 Park Fare but there were some things that I would say needed improvement. The biggest being that we didnt find there to be a whole lot of variety here for a buffet and the food was just good, nothing to write home about. We both gave it a 7/10. If the characters were not there we would probably only rate it a 5/10.


uP next....
Magic Kingdom snack + Pecos Bill
