My 1st, 2nd & 3rd trips to California Grill were in August 2007 (I was at WDW for 19 days)

My 4th was August 2008 and my 5th was October 2008

Thank you for the details. I asked because we were there last July and again twice this November/December trip. They took out the infamous "banana Buzz" with the banana curls and there wasn't a buffalo dish too. I was hoping that the "banana buzz" has made its return. I liked it better than the newer version "banana creme brulee"

You may have just set the record for earliest food pre-trippie ever!

Congrats on landing the job and on the return trip to WDW ... too bad our trips won't overlap this fall.

And thanks for the shout out in your first post!

I bet it is the earliest ever, but I'm pretty indecisive when it comes to ADRs plus I always like an excuse to chat with other DIS-er's about food and show off my food pic collection.

Thanks for the congrats! And yes, it is too bad that our trips wont overlap

No problem! Your reports are fantastic!

Dreaming of Disney Food....


So I'm on lunch at work, wishing I was eating WDW food...

I could so go for Liberty Tree Tavern's Pilgrim's Feast right now! And the Tavern Fried Cheese...Mmmm....and for dessert? A dole whip!!

At least I have some pineapple for a snack...that will have to do until MAY!

Yes...MAY! I still can't believe I'm going to WDW in 87 days!

The best part is that my DFriend Alice is letting me totally take control! All she wants is the necessary details (flight #, budget, resort phone # etc.) She doesn't even want to see pictures! Of course she has seen many of my disney pics in the past but now that she is going she wants it to be as much of a surprise as possible

I'm pretty sure about the ADRs I've posted...I don't *think* I'll be making any changes.


However, there are things I want her to try! (Or if she doesn't...things I MUST have on vacation hehe)

- Dole whip!
- French Toast Loaf
- Popcorn from Main Street (it tastes better than anywhere on earth!)
- Make your own treat @ Goofy's
- Mickey Waffle
- School Bread (I've never tried this! )
- Lapu Lapu
- Mickey Bar


I'd love to sneak Wolfgang Puck Express in there somewhere...but i love my 3 lunches....gah! The dilema is that I'm awful at planning short trips! I'm used to having 7-12 days

Well that's all for now! Have a magical day

Subscribing...love your pictures! My mouth is watering!

I saw that you liked L'Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante...you might want to consider Tutto Italia for your September trip...we were just there and it was awesome!
