Oh you are not late!! Thanks for joining in. It still doesn't feel real that I have two trips coming up in 2009. I feel like if I pinch myself I will wake up.

Breakfast ADR's.

* Crystal Palace --- This one is pretty set in stone. We LOVED getting into Magic Kingdom before the park opened. I dream about that Breakfast Lasagna and Breakfast Pizza. Yummmmm.

* Akersush Royal Banquet Hall --- I am not too interested in lunch here but the thought of a Princess Breakfast sounds pretty darn awesome to me. Plus the Unofficial Guide talks about their "massive iron chandeliers." I think this would also give me the chance to knock a few Princess character meet & greets off my list with a minimal amount of park time sacrificed. You know I wasn't too convinced but now listing my reasons makes me even more sure that this would be a good meal for us.

* O'hanas --- I sacrificed this reservation last trip for the Crystal Palace one. I am not 100% even though I would love to meet Lilo & Stitch. The food doesn't do much for me, it's more about the characters.

* Kona Cafe --- Another ADR that was sacrificed last trip. We had planned to go one morning but let's just say we were tired. I blame the way too comfy Wilderness Lodge beds. I don't want the Tonga Toast, I want the Macadamia Nut Pancakes. Of course I would convince Marc he wants the Tonga Toast so I could try it. Muhahahaha!

* Main Street Bakery --- Though not a place that needs an ADR, I would still like to eat one of their yummy looking selections. I plan to fit this in on a MK morning when we aren't doing CP.
My two cents for what it is worth---probably only about half a cent!!!

--I don't blame you for keeping the CP breakfast---you can't beat getting in MK early, and the food is REALLY good!!! The setting is so pretty too---a win/win!!!

--Akershus sounds like a really good option for breakfast to me. The princess interaction is AMAZING!!! (Do you remember my details about it from my dinner there in my TR??) The chandeliers are definitely LL worthy. I think they probably can't mess up breakfast too much---their lunch and dinner selections weren't that appealing. You will also probably get a picture package of the picture of you with the Princess in waiting--it changes all the time. (I've seen Belle and Snow White, we had Sleeping Beauty.) The package was complimentary with our dinner---I bet they do the same for breakfast. Sounds like a winner to me!!!

--I would skip Ohanas if it were me---I think you can find just as good food elsewhere, and I am one to be too excited Lilo or Stitch.

--I haven't eaten here for breakfast, but so many say such good things about it---it HAS to be good!!!! I think that sounds like a good option for a day that you are not planning to hit a park---or at least not one until later. After breakfast, you could always go for a nice stroll on the beach and hang out in a shaded hammock!

--I think ANYTHING from Main Street Bakery sounds good ANYTIME!!!!! I do have a question for everyone though---I always thought there were baked goods that we could get with our snack credits, but last year, I was kind of harassed by a cashier lady when I was in there trying to burn some extra snack credits---she made me believe that the only thing I could get with a snack credit was a rice krispie treat or a small piece of their pre-packaged candy. Does that sound right to anyone?!?!?!?! Can't we get some of the baked goods with our snack credit?!?!?!?!

Hi! I followed over from your TR. My girls and I are going May 23rd to June 2nd. Maybe we'll see each other.
I second the vote for breakfast at Boma's or any meal. Or if it's character interaction you want try Breakfast with donald at Tusker House inside AK. Mom and I had lunch and it was great. (I've also eaten at Boma's twice for breakfast and it was really good also.

You know when I showed it to him he caught on to that v-neck.

I thought you could get baked good with your snack credits but I am not 100% sure as I have never done that before.
I am still debating a bit about the breakfasts. But I did check out Boatwrights Menu and that looks yummy too!

That's awesome! Maybe we will run into each other. I was debating Tusker House but don't know if we want to get to AK early early. I don't know. I am so torn. There are too many options!

Flora, Fauna & Merryweather.

Merryweather: It's pink!
Flora: Oh, lovely shade, isn't it?
Merryweather: But I wanted it blue.
Flora: Now, dear. We decided pink was her color!
Merryweather: YOU decided!

I'm still undecided on Breakfast ADR's but I did check out the Boatwright's menu on Allears and fell in love....

Sweet Potato Cakes - with honey-pecan butter and choice of bacon, sausage, or ham.

Those sound just delicious to me. Then I saw this....

Banana-stuffed French Toast - with strawberry-banana sauce and choice of bacon, sausage, or ham.

Is this Banana-Stuffed French Toast similar to Tonga Toast because it sounds like it...?? I am not sure but I am sure that we will investigate this one morning.

I have been scouring Allears looking for dining options and I am pretty much completely confuzzled. There are way too many options. Marc is so easy going that he hardly helps, he just throws more choices into the mix!

Aren't you glad that you can listen to me obsess over my ADR's?

I think most of our lunches will be sit down except on those days that we have Breakfast ADR's.... I am not sure. I do know that on our last trip that we wished we had more time to sit down and eat and take a break from the park. We did afternoon breaks every single day and sometimes going back and forth so much is tiring. I think we'd like to do more sit downs so that we might be able to do less breaks. I am not even sure if I understand that logic but we will go with it for now.

Without furthering rambling here are some of our Lunch ADR's that we are contemplating.

* Whispering Canyon Cafe --- The lunch menu looks decent and it's close enough to the MK to go to lunch, visit the Lodge and take a boat ride.

* Kona Cafe --- Almost the same reason as WCC. We loved our Kona dinner, the menu is different but still appealing. Plus I could get those awesome crab cakes again.

* San Angel Inn --- Marc really wants to try San Angel and we both loved the atmosphere of it when we visited Mexico last trip. I was googling some of their menu options and I think I could find something that wouldn't be super spicy for me.

* Yak N' Yeti --- Another Marc choice. I am not truly feeling Yak N' Yeti but he practically drools over the menu and with the limited choices at AK, I can make it through the meal. I am all over dessert there are a couple of different options that appeal to me.

* Rose & Crown Pub --- Fish N' Chips. Yummmm. We loved ours at the CS in England last trip. I think it will be a nice rest on an Epcot Day.

* Mama Melrose's --- Marc really liked Tony's and I thought maybe on our DHS day that Mama Melrose's would be a good subsitute.

* Liberty Tree Tavern --- I read a great review of LTT for lunch from last May and I really wanted to try it. The fried cheese app looks so yummy. I was looking at the menu today though and it wasn't as appealing as I remember it being.

Because I am bored and my husband is watching football I am going to continue with our possible dinner ADR's.

* Le Cellier --- I dream about that Chocolate Moose dessert. Enough said.

* 1900 Park Fare --- I debated doing breakfast to see Mary Poppins but after my awesome Mary Poppins interaction at MK, I would really like to see the stepsisters and stepmother. I think they will be a hoot.

* Tony's --- Meh. Marc loved it here, me I can probably find something but am not really looking forward to it. Trying to find a better substitute.

* Jiko --- I am really really looking forward to this. It looks so yummy and I have read some great reviews.

* Yachtsman --- This looks awesome and I am looking forward to it.

*Flying Fish --- I want to try this as well but I don't think I can fit it in this trip.

* Spoodles --- Same as Flying Fish, I just don't think I can squeeze it in. There are too many good places to try.

* Hollywood Brown Derby --- This is an absolute certainty. We loved our meal here and want to repeat it. Polenta....mmmmmm.

* The Wave --- Light Fixtures. I read a review and the light fixtures were amazing, you know I have to check them out. Oh and the food doesn't look bad either.

* Coral Reef --- Marc really wants to try the dinner menu since we had such a good dinner. I just don't think we will fit it in this trip.

So what do you all think? Any place you LOVE or HATED? I am looking for opinions.

I am thinking about my ADR's too! I'm not really with ya on breakfast. For the most part I'm not a big breakfast fan. Unless it involves a mimosa. But let's take a look at your lunch and dinner plans:

Wave is also on my maybe list!
San Angel - I think you'll like it! I didn't find it spicy at all.
Rose & Crown.. Yummmm
Mama Melrose - haven't been but heard good things!
LTT- I am also drawn by the fried cheese!!
Le Cellier- yep, chocolate moose is all you need to say!
Jiko - I hope to dine here in Dec!

Yachtsman, Flying Fish, and Spoodles are all on my someday list.

Ever think about Narcooses? Or have you already eaten there? I hear more and more great things about this restaurant.

Your plans look great!!!!!!

I have not eaten at Narcoosee's but I have heard good things as well. There are just so many places to eat and little time. You really have to work on your food picture taking skills so I can see what Jiko looks like. I think we will stick with LTT because there are so few table services at MK. That fried cheese looks amazing! The Wave sounds really good and I have heard it is not super busy yet either which could be nice.

Is there a food porn setting on "our" camera? I think I can commit to checking out Jiko for you and possibly some of the others.

No, but there really should be!! I think I just used Auto or Custom. You get the hang of it once you get going, you don't even care if people are looking at you.

I have only been to Boatwright's for dinner but I LOVED it. Such a pretty restaurant. Also we were able to get seated next to the fireplace which was really romantic. (At the time anyway, I was with my stupid ex. Hmph.)

I don't eat spicy food at all and I liked San Angel the one time I ate there. Although I wasn't blown away like I was in other WS restaurants (Japan, Morocco, yum!)

I LOVED Y&Y. So good! Definitely give it a shot if there's anything on the menu that even remotely appeals to you. I think it was the best meal I had on our entire trip.

Mama's was a pleasant surprise for us on our last trip - the chicken parm I got was fantastic, as was Jakkie's 4-cheese flatbread and our tomato/mozzerella appetizer. The service was great too.

The Wave and Jiko look soooo wonderful! I have always wanted to try them too.

Now wait just a cotton pickin' minute here, LL. . .in my mind you have all the answers! And now you're questioning everything? What kind of chance do I have to figure it all out if you're having trouble???

Jiko's....was.....AWESOME!!! can you tell I liked it? Mom and I went there in April YUM. And the Zebratini was good although mine was a little strong.
I didn't like Tony's. Loved Tusker House and Coral Reef.
