Thanks for the response, that goes well with my plan!

Smile 1st time to Universal arriving Easter weekend!

This is the first visit to UOF for me and my 9 yr. old son. We're staying @ HRH for 3 nights with a 3 day park pass. We have been to Disney many times and love their meal plan. I like doing 1 table service a day and grab quick service for the rest. We usually plan our park days around available reservations to our favorite restaurants! I've read mixed revues for UOF's meal deal and decided not to do it. Is this a good idea?

We arrive 1:00 Easter Saturday just in time for a late lunch! Since it's a holiday weekend should we just grab something quick and save Mythos for Monday? Which is better, lunch or dinner? Being from New Orleans we would like to see the last Mardi Gras parade @ US. Is there a resturant on the parade route to watch it from and have dinner too?

Also, is there a special brunch for Easter Sunday @ Tchoup Chop? I made noon reservations. I'm a big fan of Emril and have been waiting for the opportunity to try TC.

Monday isn't planned. We're seeing BMG Tuesday night and I thought Nascar Sports Grille would be good for dinner before the show. We have Bubba Gump, Margaritaville and Pat O's here in NOLA so I would like to try a new chain.

The only thing that's already planned is brunch on Sunday. I'm open to any suggestions and strategies from you seasoned veterans!

Being from New Orleans we would like to see the last Mardi Gras parade @ US. Is there a resturant on the parade route to watch it from and have dinner too? There are several restaurants along the route but you won't be able to see anything for the people standing. Remember...the people on the floats throw beads at the onlookers and you usually have to stand to get any. You're better off eating and then finding a spot for the parade.

Also, is there a special brunch for Easter Sunday @ Tchoup Chop? I made noon reservations. I'm a big fan of Emril and have been waiting for the opportunity to try TC. I would imagine they will have something for Easter but I'm not sure.
My answers above.

Hey, I just wanted to mention a tip for Mythos. We walked in a few minutes before 11am (when they open) to try to get a table and they were able to take us with about a 15 minute wait. They took a few other walk-ins as well. By the time we were seated they were already turning people away. So if you want to try it without reservations, get there early! You might get lucky. And yes, it was very good.

Very much recommended for Margaritaville. It tends to get busier at night.

Food

Anyone have an updated menu for Mythos? We figure we can find something we like and if not we can always get desserts, but just curious.

Boyfriend and I are going to US/IOA for 4 days/5nights in December and are trying to plan the ultimate restaurant guide. We're going to get season passes starting at that time so we will have plenty of time to try all of them but we tend to be simple eaters. Figure Margaritaville for Drinks, Mythos or Confissos for dinner on day in park or arrival day (Can't decided which), Three broom Sticks for lunch (LOVE it), Nathan's or something simple for lunch at US, Something simple that night for dinner, and T-REX for the day we go to Mickey's Christmas Party.

Any comments or suggestions?

Seeing as I visit UO as a solo traveller, is there really anywhere I can eat without being looked at in a strange way?

Last summer I was in Orlando on business and walked around The Three Broomsticks but didn't want to sit down on my own as I thought it would be a bit embarrassing (plus wasting a table where a family could sit at).

Ditto with Mythos. I would love to sample that restuarant, but I guess it's not possible to realistically book a table for 1.

Luckily there's lots of fast food outlets at UO. I am particularly fond of Burger Digs in Jurassic Park. I always buy my burger and chips and go and sit round the back by the lagoon outside Discovery Center.

I disagree. It's perfectly fine at any restaurant!

There's no way a solo diner needs to eat only quick service on a trip. YOU are just as deserving of a good meal as the next person.

If you feel uncomfortable dining alone, maybe do some "practice runs" at home?

I disagree. It may be uncomfortable for you but my dad dines alone all the time no matter where we are. Hes not one to rally everyone up to go with him he just goes alone. So it's one thing for you to be embarrassed to dine alone, but its another for it to actually be "Weird".

You're on vacation and you can enjoy it just like everyone else. Who cares if you're alone? The people who make weird looks and stuff are probably the ones who aren't enjoying their vacation as much as another because they care too much what others think and what others are doing to humiliate themselves. My moto on vacation is to do whatever makes me happy and if that makes others look at me funny- more power to me because Im a free form of entertainment for them. Plus, so many people cycle in and out of that park that you probably won't ever see any of those people again.

Don`t feel that way

There are loads of people who eat on their own in restaurants and I don`t think other people give it a second thought.

Of course you can eat in Mythos or Three Broomsticks, no reason on earth why you shouldn`t.

Hope you have a wonderful time
