Thanks for reading Sandy, I'm glad it was useful! It is definitely really great going into a restaurant and not having to worry about how much a meal costs, you're right it is fun!

I'm sure you'll enjoy the DDP and hope you have a great trip!

Great, detailed report. I loved reading your family's thought and impressions of the DDP.

Your reviews were fantastic ! Clear, concise, full of great information, and entertaining ! You have a knack for writing. I'd like to echo the request for a trip/dining report from the other portion of your trip !

It varies from place to place, but I suppose you could probably do a CS meal in 30mins and a TS meal in around 60-70mins. I'm not sure if you're thinking of doing the dining plan or not, but it just adds a little bit longer because of having to order the dessert etc. 90mins for a TS meal should be plenty of time. Since the menus are readily available in many places online perhaps a good idea would be to look over the menu and have an idea of the things you might order to lessen the wait?

Another thing to take into account, especially with the table service meals is the wait for the table. Even though you make the reservations, there can still be a wait. It's not a long wait, and we often went to our ADR's early and they still let us in before our reserved time, but I suppose it is something worth considering.

Another thing I might suggest is the family style meals and the buffets. With the buffets the food is right there so you can get into it straight away, and it's pretty much the same with the family style meals, since the food is ready to go in the kitchen and your server just has to bring it out.

I hope this was helpful. If you need any more information please feel free to ask
Thanks so much for the information. I loved reading your thread and I am so happy to be bringing my daughter on her 1st Disney vacation!

Well, dear sir, all I can say is WOW! That was, without doubt, one of the BEST, most thorough (love the math!), most delish food reports I have EVER read! I am so thankful that someone bumped it recently or I never would have found it!

You have a beautiful family and your parents must be really proud of the young man and young woman they raised. Kudos!!!!
