Ooooh, you most definitely need to write a dining report so I can see how much you liked everything

You actually can't make reservations at all for Beaches & Cream but yes you can just get dessert

When we went in Sept. my DM had the chocolate ginger cake at Tokyo Dining. I had a bite (or two) it is very good. Much better than it sounds. I had the Green Tea pudding, which I liked as well.

I'm on board now....
Welcome I will most definitely try the chocolate ginger cake next time

What we did was lay out where we planned on eating beforehand - which we had to do to make reservations anyway. Then we looked at which dining plan appeared to be more worth the money

Will there be more?? I am loving your review and re-thinking our Sugar Loaf and regular DDP and thinking of going to Theme Park View and DxDP.

We did the DxDP last June and it was a lot of food - but I love the signature restaurants like CRT, Narcoosee's and Citricos..so we'll see.

I'm enjoying reading your reviews! I'm sitting on the fence regarding the Deluxe Dining Plan and found your report after doing a "search" for more info about it. I always find the best threads when I do that! I'm glad I didn't miss yours! Really enjoying your writing style and how upfront you are about things!

There will definitely be more - hopefully an update later today

Can't wait to hear what decision you make about the room/dining plan

Well, as of today, I'm leaning towards the DxDP in a BIG way. I've even started a spreadsheet so I can make my reservations in a week and a half.

But, I am also considering a switch to the Wilderness Lodge. Although my heart will always belong to the GF, I have been looking at pictures of the WL and I miss the warm, cozy atmosphere! We haven't stayed there in a couple of years, and I really miss it. But I'm still undecided altogether, so I'll be hanging out on DISboards to get some more ideas!

Can't wait to read more of your review!!!

Third Full Day - Dinner or Late Night Snack

First, I want to say that I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season with those close to them

Second, I want to apologize - I am feeling very much under the weather but cannot sleep and wanted to get an update posted. So please excuse any bad grammar (any more than usual anyway ) and forgive all misspelled words

Now, on with the show....

After our wonderful meal at Beaches and Cream we spent a lot of time roaming around the Beach and Yacht Club resorts and then headed over to Hollywood Studios for extra magic hours

Upon returning Candi was craving pizza and water in a BIG way so I told him to call and order room service while I took a shower. After my very long and very relaxing shower I saw this



Ummmm, honey - thought we were ordering a pizza not a buffet

Just like all other meals on the dining plan, the pizza room service included two appetizers, two desserts and drinks.

In it's entirety we had:

Cheese Plate - the same one served at Artist Point ($15.99), Chips and salsa - the ones served at Whispering Canyon Cafe ($14.99), Pepperoni Pizza ($19.49 + $1.00 for the 1 topping), Pecan Pie ($7.49), Fruit Plate ($6.99), 1 bottle of Evian water ($7.99) and 1 can of Root Beer ($2.99) - WHEW, that was a lot of food!!

Now, let's take a closer look at everything



Candi is a big 'ol dork and found it to be fun and exciting to order big bottles of Evian water because we would never ever pay for it in "real life." Though he admits that it doesn't really taste too much different than a plain bottle of Dasani. But, keep in mind that EVERYTHING beats the taste of Florida tap water

We've already covered the fact that I LOVE Root Beer, but $3.00 for one can I must admit that I find this to be thoroughly annoying. Luckily, I never saw the receipt until just now and was in heaven with my little can of heaven



Appetizer one was the chips and salsa and we were told these were the same ones served at Whispering Canyon Cafe. To both of us it tasted like a more seasoned version of Pace Picante. Being born and raised in New Mexico, Candi finds this type of salsa to be unedible. I was born and raised in Kansas, so to me, Pace Picante is 100% pure Mexican food at it's best However, I have been spoiled living in New Mexico and being able to eat fresh, homemade salsa for the last 8 years. So we will meet in the middle and give the salsa one thumb up and one thumb down



Appetizer two was the cheese plate with a plate of crackers and we were told this is the same cheese plate served at Artist Point. This is the first time we have ever ordered a cheese plate so please don't hate me for not knowing the proper names of each. If I remember correctly the far left was Midnight Moon, the middle was a blue cheese and the one on the right was a white cheddar. There were also pieces of walnut bread, dried cherries and something else on the plate. Candi loved the moon cheese, refused to touch the blue cheese and really like the cheddar. He is typically a cheddar man but loves it extra sharp and this wasn't sharp enough for his liking. To be honest I liked all the cheeses, but the cheddar was hands down the best of the three. I really liked the blue cheese but it was definitely a stronger blue cheese and you have to be a fan to enjoy it.



The main course was, of course, the pizza. It was, after all, the whole reason we ordered room service! Man, oh man, it was absolutely delicious! There was tons of ooey, gooey, melty cheese all over it and enough pepperonis to satisfy the both of us. It was hot and fresh when it was delivered and definitely hit the spot!



Finally, there was dessert. In the front of the picture you can see the pecan pie, which was Candi's choice. To be honest, I was so full (and tired) when we got to dessert I can't remember if I tasted it, let alone liked it Candi, however, never lets a good piece of pecan pie go to waste and put it in the fridge for breakfast I remember him saying that it was good but nothing spectacular. Sorry, I know that isn't exactly a thrilling review!

For my dessert Candi ordered me the fruit platter. I also put it in the fridge for breakfast but do remember eating it. It was delicious! All the fruit was nice and fresh and the yogurt dip they give you with it had just enough flavor. It made the fruit more tasty without overpowering the actual taste of the fruit

Our Overall Thoughts on Wilderness Lodge Room Service:

With the exception of the salsa and pecan pie, everything exceeded our expectations. With this in mind, had we not been on the deluxe plan we would never have ordered all of that food. We would have stuck with the drinks and pizza and possibly one dessert. However, it was fun to feel extra spoiled for the night and who doesn't enjoy food being delivered to them while they lounge in their PJs

Starting Credits:

Snack - 18 (9 each)

Meal - 30 (15 each)

Credits Used vs Cost:

Cheese plate, chips & salsa, pepperoni pizza, pecan pie, fruit plate, 1 can of root beer and 1 bottle of Evian water - 4 table service credits used (2 for each adult) - $98.46

** This total includes an automatic 18% gratuity added to all room service orders along with a $3.00 delivery fee

Great reviews. We are planning our trip in late Oct 2010 with our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids: 13, 8, & 3) and have been going back in forth with either the DxDP or DDP. Can't wait to hear more.

I am so glad I wandered into your report tonight. Everything sounds amazing so far. I can't wait to read more. We are doing deluxe dining for two weeks this June and are super excited. You should have seen my face when I scored the CRT ressie at 8:00 am. Even my 4yo son is excited to eat in the castle
