+ many more counter service locations! I will add them here as they're out into the dining report.




Dining Report #1:This will be my first ever dining review. I feel like this trip was more about dining that doing stuff at the parks so it's only appropiate to do a report over here too. We were at Disney from August 28th until September 7th. We were on the dining plan for 8 days. This was our first time doing the deluxe dining. We upgraded from the free dining to deluxe. I think it was $30 more per day per adult and $10 more per day per child. The places you will be reading about..

Our first day eating Disney food...

We had ADR's at Kona on the 29th. This was the first time we'd eaten here ever! Sidney (my husband) and I both ordered this...



This is called "The Big Kahuna" and is $11.99. This is the BEST breakfast I've ever had at Disney! The macadamian nut pancakes were wonderful! I'm married to a culinary graduate and we've had many flavors of pancakes...but these...delicious! Even he agreed with me! This plate is the perfect blend of everything! I am not a fan of Disney eggs, but that's just me. The potatoes were seasoned perfectly, the bacon was crisp, and the sausage and ham...also great! The french toast I could not eat...I was stuffed but we saved it for later and even warmed up it was good!

The kids tried out the kids meals..they all loved their food too. Here is what they had.







Our server was not the best but she was okay. We had to ask her for everything. The restaurant was nice and clean and we only had to wait about 5 minutes for our table. I highly recommend this place! We will be going back! If you're not a big eater the Big Kahuna is enough for two!

For lunch this day we ate at Capt Cooks. DH had the club sandwich with chips and the rest of us had chicken tenders with fruit. Everything was very good. There's not a huge selection in that food court when compared to others. I spaced out and didn't take pictures here. Sorry. Same with the pizza we bought at the Grand Floridian. The large Pepperoni and Cheese was less than $20 and was enough for the 5 of us. If you're craving pizza while at the Magic Kingdom a Pizza is just a monorail ride away!

Kona for breakfast is always a must do for me! I can't wait to try the macadamian nut pancakes next time I go. I usually stick with the tonga toast.

I wanted to try the toast but these pancakes were screaming "Try us try us!!!" And I was so glad I did! The Tonga Toast sounds yum too! It's on my list for next time! I could totally enjoy this meal for tonights dinner and be a happy woman!
