Mom & Son Eat the World Part 2 - Updated 1/20 Breakfast at POP & Cost Summary

Hello! I know it is way too early to seriously start my report but I am so excited about our ADR's, I just had to share. I knew you all would understand! After this initial "hello", I will be back a few weeks before our trip!

For those of you that read my last report, you know that DS12 and I went to the World for 11 days of Deluxe Dining while Dad stayed home, a slave to his job! Here we are from last trip:



This year we decided not only that we would bring him, but that we would brave the crowds and go Christmas week.

Cast of characters -

me - Mom, 45 and lover of all things Disney. Often been accused of being obsessed. I admit that I am a bit Pooh sized but working on it. Willing to try most things once but do not really like seafood, lamb or veal. Love all veggies, pasta & a good steak.

DS will be 13, almost 14 this trip. He has always preferred filet mignon to McD's. Willing to try most meats but not a huge veggie fan. He's working on it though. Tried many new foods last trip and is looking forward to doing the same this trip.

DH - Dad, 44. Likes Disney but nearly as much as I do. He says no one can like it as much as I do but he doesn't spend time here on the Dis! He truly will eat just about anything but isn't a fan of real spicy food. Tends to order fish/seafood since I don't cook it at home but also loves a good steak.

DH and I will be celebrating 21 years together this trip ... wow, time sure flies!

We have the DxDDP again and I had wanted to make it my mission to try as many new restaurants as we could this trip. But we realized that we will probably not be taking a trip in 2010 so I ended up mixing some old favorites with the new. Really wanted to hit all the signatures and as planned we will only miss Narcoossee's (Been to Brown Derby on previous trips).

So where are we eating?


12/25 - The Ditch!
12/25 - Rose & Crown
12/25 - Il Mulino

12/26 - Chef Mickey's
12/26 - Liberty Tree Tavern
12/26 - MK & Goofy Snacks
12/26 - Artist Point

12/27 - Tusker House breakfast with Donald!
12/27 - Yak and Yeti
12/27 - Jiko - The Cooking Place

12/28 - Sunshine Seasons and Le Cellier
12/28 - EPCOT Snacks and Drinks
12/28 - Flying Fish

12/29 - Starring Rolls and Sci Fi Drive-In
12/29 - POP Food Court

12/30 - Main Street Bakery and The Plaza
12/30 - Cinderella's Royal Table

12/31 - Chefs de France with Remy!
12/31 - New Year's Eve at Biergarten

1/1 - Wolfgang Puck Express and Ghiardellis
1/1 - Citricos

1/2 - Breakfast at Everything POP

Whew! Once again, a lot of food. We tend to not eat much at the character breakfasts and really only go for the characters. I should say, "I" go for the characters. It is a huge part of the trip for me and DH & DS willingly tolerate it. It's better than standing in line, right? Yes, that would be me if I didn't get my fix at meal times!

You have my vow to take a picture of EVERYTHING that we will eat!

So hopefully some of you will come back with me in December! Only 81 days til our trip (which means 81 days til Christmas! )

We've gone in August the past few years so I feel like our trip is WAY over due! But I think seeing all of the decorations will make it worth the wait!

Enjoy your upcoming trip ... I am jealous!

Your review is what cemented our wanting to eat there. DH cannot wait for the filet and DS and I are going to be brave enough to try the snapper and maybe the scallops. This is the one restaurant we are absolutely most looking forward to!

Oh, fun! Have a wonderful Christmas at the World!
Very excited for the reviews-- you have some great places. Don't be surprised if you LOVE T-rex! It was one of our absolute favorites-- don't be afraid to try their steaks!
Actually-- I think you may have commented on my Dining review thread, so you have have seen me gush about T-Rex, haha!

Yay! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! The only thing missing was hot soft rolls to sop up all the gravy!
