I am loving your reviews so far. The pictures are great too! You and your DH are a very good looking couple. I loved your review on WCC. We ate there once for breakfast and had a ball! My girls would love those shakes you had. Keep up the great job!
thanks. he had congestive heart failure and was 89, his heart just gave out.

the shakes are amazing. Bobby loves strawberry. I think I have vanilla one time to that was good

It is interesting to hear that they messed up your DH's special surprise for you. We went to Disney World last August for our 1 year wedding anniversary. My friend back home called up the California Grille to let them know it was our anniversary and she ordered a cake for us from the restaurant. A whole cake that would say "Happy Anniversary Pat and Lauren" on it with champagne too. She didn't tell me what the surprise was, and being our first time to Disney, I thought the confetti on the table and the dumb chocolate sign with "Happy Anniversary" on it was her surprise. She asked if I got it and of course made fun of her for it being so lame...and then she told me we were suppose to get a whole cake and I was so mad! She called the California Grille and they thought she ordered it for the following week. So...we had a bad experience with a restaurant at Disney screwing up our surprise too. I feel like they should pay more attention to those things...it is suppose to be the happiest place on earth right??

Oh, and we are eating at the Coral Reef in June...our first time and that chocolate wave looks AMAZING!
oh wow. I hope your friend got her money back! I would have been so mad! and yes the choc. wave is so good! save room.

thanks. we knew it was coming, but still sad. I feel bad for my mom. her mom died 2 months before I was born, and her dad was all she had left, and I think yesterday brought back memories of when her mom died very suddenly.

Dinner: Citricos
DDP: 2 TS credits each

Ok, the long awaited Citricos review, 1 of 2. haha.
Originally, we were not going to eat here. I think we were supposed to eat at the Grand Floridian Cafe maybe? anyway, We were walking around the GF one night and passed by it and they have the menu posted out front so we decided to take a look. Bobby really wanted to try it so I said ok,a nd we made a reservation for 5:30. (they open at 5:30) we got there at 5:25 and were asked to take a seat. they have a very nice little waiting area with tables and chairs. after about 4-5 minutes, we were seated. We were lucky enough to get seated by a nice window. I really like the theming of this restaurant. it is fun but elegant at the same time.








This is when we were introduced to Danny. He is fabulous! I told him how picky of an eater I was, and we told him we were celebrating ouranniversary. He brought us Mickey straws!


we both got sprite, and ordered our appetizers. I told him I didn't like anything on the menu for appetizers, but I saw on the kids menu there was some cheese (I love cheese. not fancy cheese, just regular cheddar cheese) and he said it was not a problem. Bobby ordered the Sauteed shrimp appetizer


so I thouht I was going to get this puny kids appetier, but he had them fix me an adult sized cheese plate. I was so happy! and I love grapes, and crackers, so it was perfect for me.

for entrees, I got the Filet Jardiniere which is just an oak grilled stak, and bobby got the bone-in ribeye. all this time, Danny kept coming and checking on us and making smalltalk. When he found out I was a teacher, he went nuts and said how much he loves and respects teachers. He was just a great server. He cracked jokes with us, asked what we had been doing in disney, etc. etc.





we both loved our food. the steak was great and so were the mashed potatoes. bobby loved his as well and ate every bite. He kept saying how we couldn't believe we had never been here before and how we had to come back.

for dessert I got the Warm Chocolate Banana Torte with ice cream and bobby got the Tiramisu. my dessert was pretty good, not my FAVORITE but still really good. Bobby loved his.


so anyway, we just loved this place. we told danny we were coming back in two days and asked if he would be working. he said yes, ad he said if we couldn't get a reservation to call and ask to speak to him and he would get us one. I also told him we were coming back in May with my parents (which we are)
anyway, this place gets 5 smily face stars.

sprite $2.29
sprite: $2.29
shrimp: $14.00
cheese: $8.00 (he put it as salad on the receipt)
steak: $41.00
ribeye: $45.00
banana dessert: $8.00
tiramisu: $8.00
Total: 128.58
total with tax: $136.94

Ooooooo.... I was so excited when I saw up updated your review. Citricos looks fabulous. I can't wait to try it.

Sorry about the Coral Reef incident. I would have been upset too. That's a memory you can't get back.

My prayers are with you and your family during the loss of your granddaddy.

Isn't it nice to get a really great server? They can totally make you want to come back to a place, and to bring your friends and family! If I ever eat at Citrico's, I'm totally requesting Danny. I like people who are flexible and accommmodating and who don't say "No" when asked if they can substitute something for you.

Can't wait to read more; you're making me drool! (closest I could find!)

Citricos is such an amzing place to eat. We ate there in December on Joe's (The Concierge at the RPC) reccomendation and now we are hooked and eating there again in May
I personally had the Truffled Potato Soup as an app , the Filet Jardiniere as my main course and the Tiramisu as my dessert. Everything was sooo good , I may get the exact same meal in May

Love your reports , thanks for taking the time to write them. I hope your family is getting through this difficult time as best as they can
