I can't express how excited I am to be staying CL! After getting the 40% off code I discovered that GV wasn't available so I booked LV originally. That came to $1520 for the 5 nights. Then on a whim I looked up what GVCL would cost and discovered it was $1670 TOTAL! A difference of $150?? How could I pass that up??

I promise I'll take TONS & TONS of pictures

Wow, Flying Fish looks awesome!

I love crab cakes and scallops. I've never tried Red Snapper but that preparation looks fantastic!

I am also considering Yachtsman Steakhouse. I went in Aug 2007 and thought that the Filet was one of the best I've ever had on Disney Property.

Any recent reviews of Yachtsman?

We went to Yachtsman last November and it was excellent! The onion rolls and roasted garlic to start with was worth the trip. We split the Porterhouse and it was amazing.

I absolutely LOVE the presentation of Japanese food, especially sushi. Not everyone enjoys eating it but the presentation is always spectacular!

I'm actually going out for sushi tonight! I'll post more of my WDW sushi pics later this afternoon or this evening.

Lol sure I'll take pics! It's this fantastic all-you-can-eat place, but the best part is that everything is made to order! It's $20 and there are 100 selections from nigiri to maki to hand rolls. There is also teriyaki, tempura, salads, rice, and more!
