Cool Don't Tell Me How To Eat Donuts! 21 DAYS OF FOOD: Updated with 13 NEW Reviews!! 01/31

Well, every good Food Trippie starts with a Simpsons quote right?

DIS Jeers

No? Just Brenda's? Well you're here now so you might as well read on

Hello there, I'm Hayley

You may remember me from such productions as 'We Ate WDW' and 'The Never-Ending Trip Report' - which really is Never-Ending as it is still without an End, but I digress.

Welcome to my newest baby, 'Don't Tell Me How To Eat Donuts!' - a 21 Day Food Review, currently in Pre-Trip form.

THE CAST:

Me - Hayley, I'm 22 and I'm the writer of this will-be humongous trip report. This will be my 2nd time back to the World in as many years and I can't wait to sample all the food again - maybe too excited I love steak, cheesecake, cheese, chocolate and seafood (especially mussels), although not all at the same time. I hate cinnamon, banana and cherry flavoured things. Also fat on meat, ick. I'm quite an adventurous eater, and will try anything once.

Him - Elfyn, or Els for short. He's 25 and my boyfriend of 4 years. This will be his 5th time back to the World, and his 2nd as an adult and with me (or his 2nd with a food-porn loving slave driver - which ever you prefer, just hope the tag fairy isn't on these boards ). He loves steak, steak and more steak. Also cheesecake. Can you tell we're a steak and cheesecake kinda couple?! He doesn't share my love of seafood however. He loves spicy food, the spicier the better.

Here we are being as close to normal as possible:


I'll be heading to Disney World on August 21st (7 days time!) to begin the mother of all food pilgrimages. Join me when I come back, I'll be reviewing the following places:

Egads. Takeeeee meee! Will you? I won't be much of a bother.........


Edit: PS. -- Is it just me, or does it seem like Pre-Trip Dining Reviews are all the rage on the Dis now? I'm not complaining.... but the anticipation to all of these pre-trip reports are killing me!
