Has anyone eaten at the T-Rex Restaurant there?
We ate there back in November. The meals are pricy but super huge! The atmosphere is great. Our kids loved it. Try one of the cottini drinks! They also have a digging pit for the kids to play in while you wait for your table! It's worth going at least once.

I was told it was super loud in there. Is that true? I have a kid with sensory issues who has prob with loud noises. He can't handle fireworks, refuses to do pirate night, etc.

Thanks, Janet! It is on our dining plan, so that wouldn't be an issue. I'll be with my 6 year old granddaughter, and I'm sure she'll love the digging pit! Bonnie

Disneylandfanatic- this post is all for you! My wife and I have been to WDW three times, twice with the dining plan, and here are our favorite places to eat:

1- La Cellier in Canada at EPCOT. The very best meal we ever had at WDW. The food, the atmosphere, EVERYTHING! Very romantic.

2- The Biergarten in Germany at EPCOT. It is a beer hall atmosphere, you sit at tables with other people, and the band is incredible. Again, a very fun atmosphere for entirely different reasons.

3- Kouzzina by Cat Cora at the Boardwalk resort. Amazing. Very different from other places on property.

4-50's Prime Time Cafe in Disney Studios. This is a blast. You sit in a booth that feels like a breakfast nook in the 50's, and watch black and white TV. Your waiteress or Waiter is either "Mom" or "Dad" and they hound you to get your elbows off the table, finish your veggies, etc. It's fun to break the rules just to get scolded. The food is pure American comfort food.

5- For quick service, you can't miss the ribs at Flame Tree BBQ in Animal Kingdom. Those are fantastic!

Now, you also asked about the alcohol tastings...



This was the Mixology class last September on the Wonder. $15 got you, from left to right, a martini, a pina colada type drink, a mojito, a long island iced tea, and not pictured was a lemon drop shot. There were also various drinks sampled in between, like a dirty martini the group passed around.

Anyway, I'm sure we will be seeing you guys at a tasting or two!

Sorry, I missed this post somehow! Ummmm, it is loud. The Dino's let out roars every once in a while. They've tried to make it feel like you are really surrounded by Dino's so, with that, comes a lot of noise. In your case, I'd avoid it.

I don't think our granddaughter would have an issue with that...she'll probably love it! I told my husband about the roaring dinos and he said: "What about grandfathers?"

No Bonnie, your grand daughter will love it!
But if you have a child who doesn't like loud noise, like Love2Sleep, then I'd go somewhere else!

Pinocchio fan...thanks for the pics! Looks like a good deal and also looks like a lot of fun!

Just checked the DCL website and it looks like our 11C cat stateroom went up in price a little bit, which always makes you feel a little better when you already have it booked at the cheaper rate.

On another note, it now seems that we are going to go with a cat 5E oversize aft balcony. Has anyone sailed in this category before? Or is anyone sailing in this cat this cruise??? I like the aft views and the price is right! I am not too concerned with motion or vibration...I have been aft before and the motion was not too bad, praying for calm seas on this journey any way...and as far as the vibration goes I am sure it won't be too bad, and probably only noticeable when we are docking.

The last cruise I was on the group chose to do a cabin crawl so we can see all the different categories etc. That might be fun to arrange for anyone who is interested. We will also have to have some sort of meet up on the ship so that we can put faces to names.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Big football day today, Go NINERS!

Going again!

Just off the Jan. 12-19th Fantasy Eastern...one word...AMAZING!

We are booked with several others from that cruise for the Jan. 4 2014 sailing. Our cabins are 7682 and 7681...veranda for Dave and I, inside cabin for the teenage daughters! Dave and I were in cabin 7686 this last week...I took photos so as soon as I figure out how to, I will post them.

Count us in on the fish extender...based on our experience this last cruise, a group of twenty cabins or less is ideal because of the size of the ship. That kept it fun and not a chore to have two smaller groups.

Pr1ncess, you will be right above us... we are in 8684! I too am excited about the larger balcony!

Welcome to all the new people, can't wait to meet everyone...keeping the FE to groups of 20 cabins sounds pretty good to me to.

Another fellow cruiser started a thread on the general DCL board and provided their thoughts...I added ours as well. We had a wonderful time and are already counting the days until we can return. If money was no option, we would LIVE on a Disney cruise ship!!
