Talking ANOTHER 21 days in WDW+DXDDP=hundreds of food pics (COMPLETED 3/2!)

It's that time of year again, and myself and DH have just returned from another food filled 3 weeks at WDW.

In case you want to read my previous dining reviews, you can find them here:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1980338

We spent 21 nights in Orlando, with 14 of them at Saratoga Springs on the Deluxe Dining Plan. 3 nights at the Boardwalk Inn where I'll be reviewing the club level offerings there, and the final four nights we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel.

I managed to take pictures of pretty much everything we ate, and as I had to re-jig a couple of ADRs around i've updated this post with an index of my reviews.

A little about us.

Me - 29 year old foodie, I will try pretty much anything but I can't handle things that are too spicy. My favourite meals tend to be fish dishes, but I also love desserts and have a bit of a cocktail addiction!

DH - 37 year old, vegetarian of over 15 years. Again he'll try just about anything as long as it contains no meat or fish. We've been able to find some really good veggie meals in WDW so hopefully our luck will continue this year.

We tried the deluxe dining plan for the first time last year and loved it. It fits with our style of dining as we could eat a signature meal pretty much every night, and minimise CS dining which tends to offer pretty boring veggie options on the whole (there's only so many cheese pizzas and veggie burgers you can eat). I really like having everything paid for up front, although the tips, wine and cocktails still added up to a hefty bill at the end of the holiday!

We'll definitely try the Cheesecake factory, I'm really looking forward to it, and I will get menu pics at Cali and Narcoosees for you.

We're not visiting the Wave this time round, but I'll ask about the fish at LTT and Wolfgangs for you.

Thank you. I love that we're able to take such long trips, but with the nine and a half hour flight I need to stay a long time to make it worth while.

Thanks. I'm not taking the laptop unfortunately so I won't be able to update live. I'll try and check in when we're at disney quest, and I promise to start writing the reviews as soon as we get back home!

Thank you. Two week trips are fantastic aren't they, the only downside is the weight we always gain after staying in WDW for such a long time!! Hope your November trip is fab.

Why get all excited about something as silly as a fake celebrity? Or getting a tag?

It took me well over an hour, but I just read your entire first report. I'm glad someone bumped it as I rarely check this board.

I'm excited to read another report from you!
