pictures are great as always ... but I think AP was stingy on their pours with the Grand Marnier flight. Unless you took the picture after a few tastings, in which case I will forgive them.

Seriously, we've had port flights where the glasses are at least halfway filled ... what gives? Did they use an eyedropper to fill those glasses?

I can't wait. Your food pictures are great

You have me thinking about writing my own reviews when we go in may.

Thank you!

I started doing dining reviews back in 2005 and my family looked at me like I was insane as I'd yell at them not to eat so I could take a picture

Now, they all hold their plates up as soon as they are set down by the wait staff I have them well trained.

Its so incredible that dining reviews have taken off like they have as without them a lot of yummy snacks, appetizers, entrees, desserts and most importantly, COCKTAILS! Would go unnoticed!

Fantastic pictures - your plans sound great and the ony problem I have is that we have to wait so long for the reviews. Here's hoping May comes round pretty soon

Shhh...I'm supposed to be writing a New Release for work but I'm actually here

Thank you so much I have a ton more pictures where those came from so I'll keep posting and hope that it makes the wait a bit shorter

It's only 81 days Which is a LOT sooner than the 198 days I have left on my Sept 2009 countdown

Now if only the booking window was still 190 days (*sigh* the new system is endlessly frustrating ) I must admit, I'm thankful that I am staying CL so that the Poly IPO can deal with my ADR hassels!

OMG your pictures are DROOLWORTHY! Keep 'em coming!!!

Since you seem to be a WDW Sushi Expert, where should DH and I grab sushi on the DxDP? We had all of our ressies worked out for September - but after looking at your sushi pics, we simply MUST add in a sushi restaurant!

So what is your suggestion?

I do love sushi!

Hmm...I think that you can get sushi as an entree on the DxDP at California Grill. In my opinion the sushi at Cali Grill is among the best I've ever had!

The Shrimp Tempura Roll (an off menu item) is to die for! Simply as for it and Yoshie will make it. It is crispy tempura shrimp, sweet mango and watermelon, wrapped in rice paper and served with a ginger orange sauce. OMG I'm literally salivating right now at the thought of it.

A nice contrast to the Shrimp Tempura Roll (which is very light and sweet) is the Spicy Kazan Roll. This is tuna, crab and shrimp with tobiko (caviar, doesn't taste overly salty, more textural because it gives a nice pop) and a fireball sauce with bay scallops and tempura crunch. This is rich and spicy and my personal favorite!

I believe you can get sushi as an appetizer at the Kona Cafe (dinner only) as the Kona Island Sushi Bar operates nightly from 5 till 10 and you can order anything from their menu while at Kona.

I've never tried the sushi at Wolfgang Puck Cafe in DTd but I've read rave reviews of it

Tokyo Dining has a seperate sushi menu and I have no idea how that works in relation to the DxDP sorry!

As much as you seem to enjoy the fishies, you simply must visit Puck's Sushi Bar. I'm drooling just thinking about it ...
