COMPLETED**1st Anniversary, 2nd Dining Review...Updated 1/15 Final Posts

Hello everyone!!

We're back, happily married, and planning our 1st anniversary trip. I'm so excited!!

A quick update.....For those of you who have been following, we decided to go DxDP. It just made sense for us and we really, really wanted to.

So, here is our updated ADR list. I'm pretty sure this is the final draft.


Saturday: Dinner- Jiko

Sunday: Lunch- Biergarten
Dinner- Yachtsman

Monday: Lunch- Yak & Yeti
Dinner- Brown Derby

Tuesday: Breakfast- Crystal Palace
Dinner- Citricos

A Snack Update

Wednesday: Lunch- Mama Melrose
Dinner- Cali Grill

Thursday: Lunch- Teppan Edo
Dinner- Narcoosees

Friday: Lunch- Le Cellier

Final Thoughts



OMG! Is that the best schedule ever?!? I just can't wait.

Here are a few wedding pics for those of you who followed our Honeymoon dining report...

Thank you! I cannot WAIT to try Biergarten. I don't know what it is about that place, but I have always wanted to go. (Perhaps it is my secret love of sauerkraut?!)

I'd choose Kona over GF Cafe for the food anyday. The atmosphere is a lot nicer at GF though. Kona always wins in our house though.

Beautiful pictures! Looks like lots of good times in your future. My fingers are crossed for you to get dxdp because once you are no longer "just a couple" you will have years before you can enjoy sitting in the many restaurants again!

Thanks you for that great advice. I know it's so true!

Tomorrow is our ADR Date!!!!



Even better than that....DH and I decided to splurge!!

DXDP, HERE WE COME!!!

As you all know, that completely changes everything. So we reworked (and reworked...and reworked) our schedule. This is where we stand now. I have a feeling SOMETHING will change in the next six months. It just wouldn't be right to make a plan and stick with it, right?!?

Sat- Dinner at Jiko

Sun- Lunch at Biergarten
Dinner at Cape May Clam Bake

Mon- Lunch at Flame Tree
Dinner at Yachtsman

Tues- Breakfast at Crystal Palace
Dinner at Citricos

Wed- Lunch at Brown Derby
Dinner at Cali Grill

Thurs- Breakfast at Tusker House
Dinner at Narcoosees

Fri- Lunch at Le Cellier

I'm super excited for many reasons...
I think we were smarter this time around.
*We have no more than 2 meals a day.
*Hopefully we can utilize the snack credits a little more.
*Also, we have no early morning ressies at other resorts. It was a real $^*#@ to wake up super early in the morning and try to make it to a different resort by 7:30am.
*We are able to try 4 new-to-us restaurants.
*We really tried to match up our dining choices with the parks we will be visiting that day. Last time on DxDP, we spent WAY too much time traveling due to our ADRs.

(Side note...it makes it really hard that all of the signature dining is at resorts. When are they going to offer some better choices at the parks?!? Specifically at HS and AK. Those are our 2 favorite parks and the dining options stink!)

So, I will follow up with you guys soon and let you know how the ADRs went. Wish me luck!

Hey guys! Our trip is quickly approaching and you know I just CAN NOT wait!! We made an ADR change last night...of course.

We are going to skip Flame Tree (which we love) this year and go to Y&Y again. Some of you who read our other review may remember I LOVED Y&Y and DH did not. It was what he ordered. You cannot order a steak from Y&Y a day or 2 after you order steaks from Cali Grill and Le Cellier, right?!?

So, I gave him a sad puppy-dog look last night and said, "Hon...can't we PLEASE try Y&Y again?" He said yes, and I just said ok and booked it! Yay! Sometimes it's better not to ask twice. lol

So I'm really excited about that.

Also, I noticed AllEars has new menus up for most of the signatures, so that got me excited too.

Finally, DH told me he would help with the reviews this time around, so it will be interesting to hear our different opinions. His tastes have really changed a lot (he actually will eat veggies now) and I'm thinking it will be interesting.

See you in a month or so to begin the reviews!

We will be in the World the same week and it looks like at Narcoossees on the same night!

Looking forward to your reviews when we get back ... we are eating at many of the same places so it will be cool to compare!
