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'm reading along! We will be there around the same time we leave in 11 days soooo excited! We are trying Tutto for the first time. Had it on our line up last year but we ended up canceling that one and ate elsewhere.

I will definitely tag along! Looking forward to your reviews! Tell DH that all good Disers must take food porn pics! Mine is so used to it now that he won't even pick up his fork until I have snapped my pics!

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!

That may work! Seriously though after several 10 day deluxe dining trips I have only had one person even comment on my taking food pics. DH just told him it was for a food blog and he asked if I wanted to take pics of their food as well! No one pays any attention to it, really!

We're Baaack--All Star Music Food Court

Happy Easter everyone....we made it. It may have been hot, we may have been a bit cranky, and it may have been crowded beyond belief..but we're back and we had a GREAT time. Now to the food...

We arrived on Friday night(4/15) and checked into the All Star Music family suites for the night. We quickly went to bed, since it was probably technically Saturday morning. We woke up the next morning and quickly hit the food court.

Now since I am new...it took me a while before I got good with taking pictures and the such.

Here's what I had:

Chocolate Chip pancakes and bacon(otherwise known as bacon flavored sawdust) and a nesquik chocolate milk.

DH had the big breakfast..you know eggs, sausage, pancakes, bacon and um..coffee..if that's what it's called!

The Good:
The pancakes were delicious, actually. Not too chocolate-y!

The Bad:
The breakfast platter wasn't great, but it was edible...so he claims

The Ugly:
uggggh...the bacon and the coffee. Neither of those were actually palatable...I'm no snob, I pretty much go with the flow...but ulch!

Here's a little helpful tip...don't go in April when it's around the time of Grad Night unless you LOVE teenagers. Now I'm a Dean of Students at a local high school and they dont' bother me...but my hubs on the other hand...lol..let's just say..the All Star wasn't for him...good thing we were all moving to Boardwalk Villas...

More to come, ya'll!

4/16--Boardwalk Bakery

So going through my photos...I realized I pretty much only took pictures at Table Service meals...my bad..sorry ya'll!


So we went to check in at the BWV's @ 3pm, but the rooms weren't going to be ready until 4.(boo)

We went to the only counter service on BW property, the bakery.

I was tickled pink, due to all the delicious talk on the boards. Only thing is...all the sandwiches are premade and they cannot be altered, much to my mother's chagrin

Here's what we had:

Me--Turkey sandwich, water, and chocolate peanut butter cupcake(are you kidding me..that sucker took me three days to eat...heaven ) Turkey sandwich had swiss, lettuce, tomato, and cranberries. The turkey was okay..the rest of the sandwich was AWESOME. Too bad I didn't get to eat it(more on that in a couple minutes)

DH--Italian sandwich...my husband...a man of so few words says, 'It was good'. He also got a water and a no sugar added cheesecake..which strangely enough we never got...don't know where that little bugger disappeared to!

DMother---now I love the woman..she's my mother..but she is a pain in the @ss when it comes to food. The woman likes NOTHING...she has bland taste and hated everything that was there...she went for the roast beef...I think...water and chocolate mousse cake...um...yum!

DSister----roast beef sandwich(with blue cheese, carmelized onions and basically all around deliciousness) water and chocolate mouse cake

DNephew---he got the roast beef sandwich toasted, coke, and a chocolate peanut butter cupcake. Now he HATED his sandwich..he doesn't like blue cheese so I switched with him. I am sooo glad I did. Here's a little tip, Dis'ers..if you get the roast beef sandwich here, have them toast it...it makes it soooo much better...warmed blue cheese and the hot onions...the best sandwich I had the whole time!

DNiece---tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich(she LOVED IT) sprite and a cookie

The good----
OMG..that toasted roast beef sandwich....and the chocolate p'nut butter cup cake

The bad---
according to my mother..everything ;( lol

The ugly---
Nothing really....we sat ON the boardwalk in front of Kouzzina...it was pretty magical!

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!!
