Pooh & Eeyore eat Disney World 3/22 Le Cellier, Via Napoli, Pepper Market Lunch
We're back from our long awaited trip to Disney World. The past year has been a rough one for DH and I with my Mother having had both open-heart surgery and being diagnosed with cancer. She's doing fine now and is almost through the chemo. Somewhere along the way she decided to treat us to a belated 15th, early 16th Anniversary trip. Originally we were slated to go elsewhere but that trip fell through and when I asked Hubby where he wanted to go - he said Disney World. I won't lie, I nearly fainted. Sure, he'd loved his previous and only trip to Disney World about 5 years ago with my friend and her family but you have to understand I'm married to Eeyore . At best if the most exciting thing in the universe happens he'll flash a quick smile and say "Cool". If a female Vulcan and Eeyore ever had a child - it would be my Husband. I cannot impress that point on you nearly enough.
Me, I have my Eeyore moments but I try very hard to stay in touch with my inner Winnie the Pooh (and Tigger too!). I'm also Pooh-sized, and my next meal is rarely far from my mind. What this means for all of you is that I have obsessed over our ADR's for the last 5+ months and because we got lucky enough to be able to book during "Free Dining" we were able to upgrade to the Deluxe Dining Plan. Our last trip to Disney involved the old DP where you got the 1 CS, 1 TS and 2 Snack credits a day, but you still got appetizers and tips were included. Because I tend to view mornings with suspicion at the very least and often outright hostility you will not be seeing much in the way of breakfast eating.
We love ethnic foods of all kinds, and are generally pretty adventurous eaters but we both have foods we just don't like or won't eat. Hubby prefers his fish to be fried unless its tuna, doesn't enjoy shellfish except scallops and will not eat uncured pork (ham, sausage and crumbled bacon are ok), "fatty" meat, or pretty much anything he has to eat off a bone. He also despises walnuts. I love everything he hates, as is often the case with married people.Still we managed to get ADR's for a wide array of restaurants and as you can see we left no hunny pot unturned in our quest to eat Disney World.
We had some changes and additions to our original plan. Hubby woke up on Valentine's Day barely able to walk so we canceled our park plans for the day, and our lunch ADR and ate at the resort and then later when the swelling in his feet and ankles went down went over to DTD before our scheduled dinner. The next day I woke up very sick and again we canceled lunch and our park plans. Once I felt better in the late afternoon we again did a little time at DTD and then went to dinner. We also canceled a single credit meal and booked a Signature due to us having a ton of credits left over. We ended up with no snack credits left but 4 meal credits (2 each). I could have used 2 of those on counter service early on if we'd known but oh well. We felt we got our money's worth. I'm going to update the list below and then will link reviews to this page as they're added. There may be a slight delay because I have to sort through all of the 200+ photos and we had a death in hubby's family before we left and have to travel up to see his family as soon as we get over the cold we both caught on the trip.
