Too much food for these Newlyweds Sep. DxDP 11/08

Thanks for reading my dining report, although I have never done this before so bear with me. We went Sep 5-12 and not only were we on the Deluxe Dining Plan, we also stayed concierge level. It was a ton of food!! I originally also had the Wishes Dessert Party scheduled, but half way through ended up canceling because I knew there was no way we could enjoy it. Boma was the only restaurant that I did not get food porn at and oddly enough we ate there twice.

Who are we? Two 20 something newlyweds, it was hubby's first time to Disney and I hadn't been I hadn't been there for probably 10 years.



Here are the restaurants I will be reviewing, plus some snacks along the way:

Main St. Bakery
Liberty Tree Tavern
Narcoossees
50's Primetime
California Grill
Earl of Sandwhich
Yachstman Steakhouse
Sunrise Safari
Yak & Yeti
Jiko
Whispering Canyon Breakfast
Sunshine Seasons
Lecellier
Boma
Alcohol

Hope you enjoy, we just got home today so I will start working on my first review soon!

Well this review will be a little boring and I apologize, I can't read dining reviews without pictures!!! We stayed at AKL so we got there late and by the time we checked in and got our stuff to the rooms, it was time for our 9 pm reservation. Alas, we forgot the camera! Boma is a really unique looking restaurant, which I loved and the service was wonderful. I knew the food was going to be out of my league because I am pretty picky. DH is more adventurous, but even he couldn't find much he liked here. There were a couple things we liked, the strip loin & shoulder, I think it was. The mealie muffins, fruit, mac n cheese. DH tried the watermelon rind salad and the look on his face was priceless. He said it was the worst thing he ever tasted, LOL! Another surprise of the evening was zebra domes. He loved them and I couldn't stand them. There will be a couple more "dis-favorites" in other reviews that I found I did not like. Our last meal of the trip was also Boma, but we did the breakfast and we had already packed the camera Breakfast was really great, I just wish we had more of an appetite to enjoy it. It was the last day of deluxe dining and boy were we feeling it. I had actually been sick the night before after the Halloween party and I dont think I was sick, I just think it was just too much food catching up to me. I loved the scrambled eggs and the eggs with goat cheese. Everything else was really good and would definitely go back! Now that I have the two reviews with no pictures done I can start on the fun ones

So it is now our first full day at Disney and we decided to do MK first. We made it to rope drop and headed straight for Main St. Bakery and were one of the first ones in line. When in line I asked about what I could get with my dining plan and was told the sandwhich, drink and a sweet, which suprised me since I had heard on the Dis it was a sandwhich and 2 drinks. A pleasant surprise though!





We both had the ham, egg, and cheese croissants which were wonderful! For several days DH talked about these. For my sweet, I chose the chocolate chip croissant which I did not like at all and didn't eat it. He chose the cinnamon roll which was also very good, though he quickly realized later he shouldnt have ate everything! I think this place will be a must do for future trips.


If you feel my photos are too big let me know, I tried to go to a "medium" size, but you lost a lot of detail and the food didn't look as good!
