Just wanted to say Ms.H that I also found your report today that had been bumped from your last trip and LOVED it!! I was having withdrawl after finishing PHP's last report and then I found yours and read all of it this morning. I think I'm a little obsessed with food porn!
Most people read trip reports to get them to their next trip - I am with you - its all about the food!
Oh Ms H - i will go take a look at yours!

I am really enjoying your trip report!

Do the cookie bars have alot of the coconut taste? They look really good.
First trip!!! Yey! I hope your ADR's went Ok - where did you get?

The prevalent taste in the magic cookie bars is the choc chips and biscuit base. The coconut is quite subtle.

I know how you feel! Once you start reading about all these treats you just have to find room and money for them - I don't know which is harder!!!!

I wish I could convince my fiance to join the DIS too! I think maybe our dining report could convince him!!
Tony has called me a "geek" for years for being on here . . . now he has come over to the bright side!! Tony even filled ina little dining report every night on vacation that I created for him, so he didn't forget anything!!!!!!!

We were lucky - it was a great trip! I told Tony it would be our last trip for a few years so we may as well do it in style . . . can't believe he fell for it!!!!!!

Welcome, PHP's Hubby!
Hello there!!

Maybe we could start a campaign to get Graham Crackers imported?!! Asda is our best bet as they are owned by Walmart!!!! Lets start a petition!!!!

Anyway on to the real topic of discussion I am booked in with my DH, DD & DS to POFQ in August and am intrigues by the pasta station you described. Is it a TS or CS? I am on free dining.

Thanks for the details great to hear opinions of fellow DISers
The pasta station was great AND its only a counter service credit!!! Woot!!

Its one of the things I love about being abroad, people commenting on my accent! Makes me feel like Mary Poppins!!!!!!!

You will love POFQ - have you stayed there before?

Hmm bikinis that we can't fit in to for at least 3 months after the v acation, or EoS - I know what my case would be full of!!!! The Earls finest!!

He didn't think that was such a good idea though...apparently he thinks I would spend more than I make and that would negate any saving we would get on our trip. Not to mention the fact that then I couldn't even go on the trip...vacation in the month of December is not happening if you work in retail!

As for our favourite restaurants...with the kids we seem to do a lot of character meals...they love them (who am I kidding...we love them too!) But this year we are doing "Date Night" and going to Schula's at the Dolphin for dinner. I will be our 13th anniversary while we are in the World so my dh wants to do something "just the 2 of us". He chose Schula's b/c he is a big NFL fan and loves him some steak! So the kiddies will go to Camp Dolphin (child care facility at the Dolphin) for a couple of hours and we will have Date Night!
I wonder if we would get discounts working in the UK store - that might be worth looking into as a second job!!!!

Oh I've never been to Schula's - let us know what its like!

I'm off again in September and you have been to many of my (hopeful) choices!

If you're after fantastic discounts in WDW, you should do what I did and go off on the International Program and spend a year in Epcot! Not only do you get to go and work there every day, but you also get free entry into all of the other parks!!! What could be better? How about discounts on dining and merchandise? Oh yes!!!! Needless to say, it makes my boring job back in the UK seem even worse! How could it possibly be better than working for the Mouse?!?!
I'm so pleased I am your first post!!!

September will be here so soon!! What ADR's are you planning?

Tony and I would love to go and work there for a year! And that was before I heard about all the perks you just mentioned!! that must have been amazing!! Did they have to force you back after a year?!!!

Can't wait to read more
Thanks!!

The graham cracker situation is bad! So is the reese's pieces situation!! And dont get me started on the lack of "marshmallow fluff"!!

Can't wait for more!!

(Also - i'd go for WDW at christmas! I know you'll be on a DCL boat, but the med vs. WDW is a no brainer for me!!)
I think we have pretty much decided on Christmas! I just really want to be booking - I feel like I have a fake ticker at the moment!!!!!!!!

The Earl is the best!

I think the ribs must have come from a giant buffalo or something!

Will try get another update on tonight or tomorrow!

I'm so pleased I am your first post!!!

September will be here so soon!! What ADR's are you planning?

Tony and I would love to go and work there for a year! And that was before I heard about all the perks you just mentioned!! that must have been amazing!! Did they have to force you back after a year?!!!



Ha ha ha! To be honest, they practically had to drag me out of the back of Epcot while I clung on to The Rose and Crown with my fingernails! I was devastated! What could be better than going to the Magic Kingdom on your day off? Or popping to Ghiradelli's for a milkshake whenever you felt like? It was heaven! They even threw us a party in Animal Kingdom after hours... NEVER go on the Dinosaur ride when you've had a few cocktails! And, even though I saw what it looks like "out the back" of all the parks, the magic never wore off!

My current dream line up of ADRs are:

Chef Mickey's breakfast
Le Cellier
Hollywood and Vine
Planet Hollywood
Ohana
Chefs de France
Prime Time Cafe
Beaches and Cream
Chef Mickey's dinner (me and my friend like the cheesy mash!)
Tutto Italia
Teppan Edo
Boma
Sci Fi
Cape May Cafe breakfast

Finger's crossed for June 23rd when I can make my ADRs!!!

Never stayed at POFQ but I am sure you cannot go wrong with a Disney property. My vote for your next trip is Xmas at disney - don't get me wrong it is BUSY but they lights and the decorations made it so worth while. That was our trip instead of coming home to England.

Loving the reviews I didn't have EOS on my list but reading your reviews I think I might just have to make it one.

We have the following for our August trip

Raglan Rd
TRex
Tuskers Bfast
Ohana
CP Dinner
Park 1900 Bfast
CM
Fulton's
LeCellier Dinner

Love it! Those ribs look absolutely delicious!! And the onion loaf! I've been eyeing up Tony Roma's menu - do you go to the one on I Drive?

I hate to admit it to the Queen of Wings herself, but... I am a fake winger *hides* I like the ones without bones in, but I suppose they are just glorified chicken nuggets! The ones at BWW are TDF!

Your pictures are making my mouth water! I too love the ribs at Tony Roma's. We ate at the one on I-Drive in 2006 and boy was it delicious! I can't wait to read more. It's getting me very excited for my trip in 3 weeks.

Hey Sonya ~ Lovin' your report so far . I promised myself to go to bed early last night (Jake had ~ 20 friends over Friday night and we had a cookout for ~ 20 people Sunday evening, so I was pooped ). As I was about to turn in, I realized I hadn't read your report so far . So what does a "responsible grown-up" do...........that's right, I plugged in my laptop and read your report in bed . I would vote on WDW at Christmas. It is my FAVORITE time to vist with all the decorations and nice weather. The crowds are insane between Christmas and New Years, but worth it in my opinion for the ambiance . ~ Kathy

P.S.
We LOVE your accent as well . When Jake was little and we went to WDW, he would always listen for English accents and listen to the people speak with a smile on his face .

I'm so excited I found your review. Those magic bars from Riverside are one of my favorites too and they travel home really well.

Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your trip.

Okay my pretty little DIS celebrity -- I am a little late to the party but I am here! Wouldn't miss it for the world! I loved the last one, loved meeting you two on the Magic and can't wait to see you both again. Umm.....this time I promise not to bombard you and your friends with stories of tequila.

I still don't understand how you can eat so much and stay so little.

As for Tony Roma's -- the Carolina Honey's are my favorite. Do you guys want us to bring you some sauce when we come to the UK in December? I will definitely bring you graham crackers and Reese's!!!!

Can't wait to read the rest....count me in!
