So Many Desserts! A Rare QSDP Review w/ pics! 6/19-6/26 FINISHED!: Wrap Up 8/16

Greetings everybody!

So I just returned from a 10 day trip at WDW. If you want to follow my photo TR (it also shows a character introduction of everybody), here's the link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2498873The first week it was me, my family, my uncle and my cousins staying at SSR (8 of us). We opted for the QSDP because we wanted to have the dining plan experience while being very flexible. With some picky cousins, we did manage to find lots of places that satisfied their chicken nugget cravings while at the same time providing variety for the rest of us.

It was hard to find reviews for the QSDP so I hope that my report helps those in the future trying to decide about whether or not to get it!

Oh yeah, and I have tons of pics from almost every meal. They range from Casey's Corner at MK to Wolfgang Pucks Express at DTD to Sunshine Seasons at Epcot and Toy Story Pizza Planet at DHS! Lots and lots to come.

Table of Contents (B)= breakfast, (L)= lunch, (D)= dinner, (S)= snack
-6/19: Wolfgang Puck's Express Marketplace (D) COMPLETED 6/30 pg. 1

-6/20: Artist's Palette (B) COMPLETED 7/1 pg. 2, Sunshine Seasons(L) COMPLETED 7/1 pg. 2, Yakitori House (D), Kringla Cafe (S) COMPLETED 7/2 pg. 3

-6/26: Main Street Bakery (S) Aloha Isle (S) COMPLETED 8/11 pg. 13, Wolfgang Puck's Express (L) COMPLETED 8/12 pg. 14, Cosmic Ray's (D) COMPLETED 8/14 pg. 15, Mara (S) COMPLETED 8/14 pg. 15

WRAP UP: COMPLETED 8/16 pg. 15

That's the lineup and so the next update will be our first dinner at WPE!

Oh and for future reference, the total cost of the QSDP for 8 of us for 7 days was $1886.44. I will be keeping a running total of what it would have cost us if we weren't on the dining plan.

Wolfgang Puck's Express-Dinner

So we arrived at SSR and were pretty hungry after travelling all day. After meeting up with our cousins, we decided to head over to WPE. We wanted to take the boat from SSR to DTD, but chances of thunderstorms forced us to take the bus. The bus was probably a better decison because it placed us right next to the restaurant and it was beginning to pour!


We got inside quickly before the downpour and quickly ordered. The variety and quality at this place was unmatched by any other CS place we went to. Ok, on with the food pics.

DC12 and DC10 both got the chicken tenders. I didn't try them, but they seemed happy. Nothing special.


DU and I got the Spaghetti and Meatballs. The noodles were very good. The sauce was light but had flavor. The meatballs just melted in your mouth. They crumbled as soon as you stuck your fork into them. Mmmmm. And wonderfully spiced.


DB got the Pennette Bolognese. It had a nice taste to it. The peas were an interesting touch and very yummy! He enjoyed his meal. Sorry for the blurry pic.


DD tried the Pennette chicken alfredo. It was creamy and delicious. I tried a bite and I liked it slightly more than the bolognese. It had a little bit more flavor.


DM ordered the 4 cheese pesto pizza. One of the best things on the menu I think. The pesto was so scrumptious and the mozarella was perfect! Even the DCs (who are skeptical about trying new foods) liked it when they tried it.


DC13 ordered the Mac n Cheese. I didn't get a pick, but I did get a bite. If the traditional orange fake cheese is what you're looking for, it's not here. This one was leaps and bounds better! The baked cheese was heavenly!

For dessert, we had...
a creme brulee


2 brownies


3 frozen yogurts (sorry no pic) and 2 cheesecakes


All of the desserts were yummy yummy yummy! The froyo especially hit the spot because it was warm outside (despite the tropical rain forest weather).

Anyway, we started with 112 CS and 112 snacks. At WPE we used 8CS.

WPE dinner: 8CS (104CS left, 112 snacks left)
If we weren't on QSDP, we would have paid: $170.61

Wolfgang Puck has to be the classiest counter service option on property. Thanks for the review.

Yes, the mac and cheese was very yummy! I probably would have ordered it if we had gone more than 3 times!

It was definitely very classy for a CS place. The waiters were always very helpful and nice, not to mention the food selections were way above and beyond other CS food options.

Thankyou, Thankyou for doing a QSDP review
I have just reduced my plan from the regular DDP to the QSDP, as i realised there were more CS restaurants we fancied trying than TS. include in that the freedom and not being tied down.

I am so looking forward to reading your review

Many, many Thanks

Ali

I will add my thanks for doing a QSDP review

We are leaving Sunday for AKV and have just added the QSDP - you are right there is a real lack of QSDP reviews here Guess that it is more inspiring when you are going deluxe

Hopefully I will be able to contribute some reviews when I get back and pay it forward
