I think Coral Reef owes you a free dinner ... they spelled anniversary incorrectly on your menu.

I've enjoyed your reviews and pics - love your hubby's crab claw fingers. And here I thought my hubby and I were the only people out there who play with their food!

Great reviews so far. Glad you did coral reef. DH and I will be eating there this August on our anniversary. I to got the menu plus the diver for DH. Total surprise for him. He knows nothing about it. And trust me, the wait and the surprise is killing me! I just want Aug 7th 5pm to get here already!

Love your review and pictures! My nephew wants to eat in Germany when we go in August (he is 12 and has been taking German for 3 years now.) I know he won't like the food and the picture of your husband just cracked me up!! The food is not for everyone! I have been tossing the idea of the DDP and your prices are swaying me to think that yes I should!

Monday, December 17
where: The Mara
DDP: 1 CS meal, shared

we got the bounty platter again
One Boutny Platter, consisting of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, waffle, bancake, biscuit and gravy, also got a water to drink.

TOTAL: $7.99

same picture as before lol

------------------------------------------------------
Monday, Dec. 17 lunch
WHERE: Backlot Express, MGM
DDP: 2 CS credits

1 Double cheeseburger with fries: $7.09
1 apple juice: $2.39
cheesecake: $3.59
1 hot dog with fries: $5.79
1 root beer: $2.09
cheesecake: $3.59

TOTAL: $24.54


I had never eaten here before so we decided to try it. bobby liked his burger. it was big! the actual hot dog was good, but the bun itself was pretty stale! the cheesecake was REALLY good! But I am bias, I love cheesecake!
the inside of this restaurant was very interesting. the name is pretty self explanatory. it had outdoor seating but was FREEZING so we ate inside. but every time the automatic door opened, a chill ran through the room!



up next: WCC and tons of fun!!

yeah...the food wasnt for us! whatever floats your boat!!
the DDP is such a great value for us. plus we like to be able to order whatever on te menu without looking at prices. its vacation! you shouldnt have to worry with that stuff!

We sat right next to the tank and they were swimming through. One of them got freaked because there was a shark. It was kinda funny.
haha they almost forgot ours too! we saw a scuba diver i think. i cant remember now!

what do you mean teh only dinner option? we had the same menu as everyone else it was just printed up differently for us. that may ahve been like a "special" or soemthing. i dont eat seafood either!

its FREE! call the CR and ask for debbie! i e mailed her pics and she set it up!

There aren't many "good" cs places to eat at DHS from what I've heard and experienced. Sorry your bun was stale. Maybe you caught them on an off day. I liked Rosies all american canteen or whatever its called...they had a pretty good burger and fries and I am a picky eater. Can't wait to hear more! Oh and the back lot catering company I think it is called now...has pretty good pulled pork sandwich.

Monday, Dec. 17 Dinner
WHERE: Whispering Canyon Cafe
DDP: 2 TS credits

Appetizers:
I got the sausage and cheese plate, LOVED IT! Bobby ordered the skillet so he got salad as his appetizer

cheese/sausage: $7.99

entrees:
Bobby got the skillet and I got the prime rib. He was in HEAVEN with all that food. my food was pretty good, but I'm not a HUGE prime rib fan but wanted to try it. our server told me to eat off of the skillet if I wanted, so I tried a taste of everything, it was YUM!

Skillet: $22,49
Prime Rib: $20.99

we also got milkshakes as our drinks. me vanilla and him strawberry. the strawberry was SO GOOD!

dessert:
we got the cinnimon banana thing, and the cheesecake to go. we were stuffed!

Banana thing: $5.49
cheesecake: $5.49

TOTAL:$72.55
(i couldnt find a price for the milksahkes so i added in 3 bucks a piece)

WE LOVE THIS PLACE! we are hams, but it was so fun. we got to do a kissing contest, and ride around on stick ponys in front of everyone singing "you are my sunshine" and our server, gene, was a BLAST. he learned our names first thing and called us by them the whole time. he gave me a huge straw for my milksahke, too. he was just great all the way around. we are def. going back here in september!
also, bobby asked for more ribs for his skillet, and you know at most places they would bring you out like, one or two. well they brought him out a whole RACK! he was in heaven!

appetizers





skillet


prime rib
