Keep the great reviews & pix coming!

September 11th
Dinner: Flying Fish Cafe
DDP: 2 TS credits each

We had never been here before and were excited to try it. It was MONSOONING when we got off the bus and we were soakin wet by time we got there, and we even had ponchos on! they had dry towels for us at the door so we could freshen up a bit and dry off and I thought that was nice.

We were sat in the middle of the place and it is a cool place to look around at. Our server was VERY bubbly and really nice. when I told her I was a picky eater she was very helpful on what to order and not to order.



I went with the cheese plate and bobby got the crab cakes


Bobby lvoed the crab cakes, but I did not like the cheese. GRANTED I am not much of a cheese plate person. I love regular cheese, like on a cheeseburger, nacho cheese etc. not not fancy chees.e I ahve never liked it, but thought I would give it a whirl. I am sure it tasted great to normal ppl though. Bobby really liked the crab cake and if I remember correctly said it rivaled Narcoossees crab cakes!

for entrees I got the NY strip and Bobby got the wrapped snapper.


we both felt our food was good, but nothing to write home about. just average. nothing wrong with it...its hard to explain I guess! for dessert I got something chocolate but I don't see it on the menu! and I don't see bobby;s either. I think his was a YOMD dessert. here are pictures




the desserts were both good, but not narcoossees cheesecake good haha.
all in all, this was a good experience, but tehre are other 2 TS places we would rather go. We would be willing to try it again though, just not our "favorite" and when you have so many favorites like we do, it leaves little room for the "average" restaurant to get a chance!
and a 1/2

2 sprites $4.58
cheeses: $16.00
crab cake: $16.00
NY strip: $42.00
snapper: $36.00
YOMD dessert: $7.00
chocolate dessert: $8.00
SUBTOTAL: $129.58
TAX: $8.43
TOTAL: $138.01

up next: GF Cafe Breakfast

I guess that's what make the world go around, we are all different. We felt about Narcoossee's the way y'all felt about Flying Fish, we just weren't wowed like we have been at all of the other 2TS places we've been to. Flying Fish is pretty close to the top of our list. Keep up the great reviews, enjoying them!

Breakfast: Grand Floridian Cafe
DDP: 1 TS each

it was so nice to wake up, walk downstairs and right into our restaurant to eat! we were seated right at the front, sadly not by a window. We have alwyas enjoyed this plac,e but this time we got stuck with a weird server. She was not all there, not very friendly, and it was just akward. the food was delicious though! Bobby got the American Breakfast, and I got the Maple Vanilla french toast.



we also both got juice. I got apple, he got orange.



the place was pretty empty as you can see. SO, overlal, the food was good, but she service this time left something to be desired. But do not let this scare you away, I have had many fabulous experiences here. maybe it was an off day or something? so I give it

apple juice: $3.00 (approx)
OJ: $3.00
french toast: $10.99
american breakfast: $12.99
Total: $29.98
total with tax: $31.93

Loving your reviews, have to say when we visited GF we had fantastic service but didn't rate the food.

Have been to CP for dinner and breakfast - booked for lunch for the first time this trip.

We ate dinner at the GF Cafe unexpectedly and it was great. The decor at Flying Fish looks so fun! Too bad you weren't wowed by the food. I'll eat just about anything and that cheese platter def looks good to me!

Great updates. I am so glad you have the GF cafe in there. It is nice to know we can have a nice breakfast right there in our resort. The foodcourts are just to much for me to handle that early in the morning. I can not wait to hear about Citricos. The wait is killing me. I loved the steak at FF but Narcoosee's still whips FF in my book.
