I had Dinner at Cali Grill May 2010 with DS... we LOVE Sushi and that's what we had and we LOVED it.... however I'd love to go back and try the Spicy Kazan Roll, which we did not try. After booking that one, I heard of Kimono's so when we returned in May 2012....DS brought his GF there and they still RAVE about it.... She has a review on here ("Steamboat Minnie") or I can send you a link if you would like.
I have been to Le Cellier Twice now and I'm a HUGE fan...

let me know if you would like links to the reviews... with pics....

Have a magical visit !

Mary

Great choices! Definitely let us know how the sushi is at the Swan. And you will like Starring Rolls, you HAVE to get one of their huge cupcakes, particularly the Chocolate Peanut Butter (if you are a fan)!

I love character meals (w/kids and even w/o) but I loathe Chef Mickey's. We've tried both dinner & breakfast. Both were awful, the breakfast even more so. Since it's just the 2 of you, I'd recommend Ohanas for a character breakfast. It's more laid back and the food is way tastier. It's an easy ride on the monorail from BLT.

An excellent plan. But if I may, let me suggest that you skip the Contempo Cafe. Since your are trying to get to DHS for an early opening, I would forego the extra time required to walk over to the CC and instead head straight for the park. You can get breakfast foods at Starring Rolls. The food will be better, and you won't waste a minute of precious time getting to the park. You can also get some breakfast items like fruit at Sunset Ranch Market. Of course, if you hit up Starring Rolls for breakfast, you may want to make an alternative plan for lunch, such as Fairfax Fare, the ABC Commissary, or the Backlot Express. You could, of course, go back to Starring Rolls for lunch. No crime in that.

Contempo Cafe is horrible. It's worse than a school cafeteria....go to the park and grab something from there!

Overall, looks yummy. I might suggest switching Chef Mickey's for Ohana or Crystal Palace breakfast. For your EPCOT CS lunch, I don't think you can beat Morocco - it's some of my favorite food in Disneyworld. Have fun!

I love breakfast at the Contempo Cafe The breakfast sandwich is really big and I could only eat half of it. It was very tasty and it made me sad to throw so much of it away. My DD had the waffles covered with caramel and bananas and they were delicious!
