So last trip, in November, we had the DDP. We didn't put too much research into the restaurants, and were just picking random places for counter service. We just didn't have much of a plan. Boy did that turn around for this trip!! Here's what we did last time:

Counter Service:
ABC Commissary - We actually liked it--it was quick and good.
Cantina de San Angel - This was my favorite counter service, I love nachos!
Liberty Inn - Eh, we weren't super big fans of this place, totally average.
Cosmic Rays - Again, very average.... but yay for fries and cheese sauce!!
Yak n Yeti Counter Service - this was DBF's favorite counter service, he had the beef.

Table Service:
Cape May Cafe - My Favorite!! This buffet was great, fresh and I love seafood!
Planet Hollywood - This was good. So loud, and so much to look at!
Crystal Palace - Ugh, Awful, We hated this place. The food was terrible-- but we got cute pix with Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet
Teppan Edo - We really it here, interaction was great, food was amazing!
Kona Cafe - DBF's favorite meal!! Great steaks!!!
Tony's Town Square - Very yummy! We liked very much!

Only a week and a half to go!! And when we get back, I'll be able to get my ADRs for November!! Always planning!

Got Back Today!

Well Hello! What a great trip!! I can't wait to get into all the details!! We arrived in Cincinnati about 6pm tonight, got home to see our little doggy that missed us, and ordered a pizza. I've since then taken a few benedryl since the Sci Fi menu doesn't mention that the Peanut Butter/Chocolate cake is made with walnuts in it (not just scattered around--which I kinda freaked out when I saw)... and I'm infested with itchy hives from just one bite--one more bite and my throat would have closed up, lol. I even looked at the menu when we left there to assure I wasn't going crazy. If a dessert is 1/3 walnuts, you would assume it would be mentioned somewhere in the description. Anyway. I'm catching up on DVR, unloading the phones, cameras and camcorders on to the pc, and photobucket--and I'd say starting tomorrow we will be getting a jump on 7 nights/8 days of deluxe dining, club level and some snacks

Adding to my previous allergy rant.... I'm allergic to lots of things. Most of them give me hives which I can stand if I really want the food (I'm 27, I know my limits for the most part). Tree nuts are my major issue and will normally close up my throat. I've been to Disney enough that I'm aware of what they do when you're allergic to stuff. They talk to you, then send the chef out, then possibly tell you not to order something you want. With the exception of Teppan Edo (because of the mushrooms for the whole table touching your stuff on the grill), I normally just carefully look over the menu and ask to go without things that may be in question. This has worked pretty well for me, except for twice this week. Something early in the week made my throat swell for 2 days--I had benedryl with me and it wasn't awful, just annoying. Thinking back--it may have even been a clumsy mishap with chlorine and humunga kowabunga, lol---let's just not place blame on that one since I can't really put my finger on what it may have been. I'll check through the pictures and maybe it'll jog my memory

Alright, well get ready! Pix and reviews on the way!!
Have a good night everyone!

My vote would be chocolate lava cake with ice cream from CA Grill
I am most certainly going to be sampling those liquid treats

Arrival and 50's Prime Time

Okay! So we were on the Magical Express bus to the Yacht Club, and I was organizing my paperwork in my folder and Dave swiped the coupon folder from me, and saw we were staying Club Level Garden View and he was sooooooo excited!! So we arrived, they said our room wasn't quite ready--which was okay because we only had a few minutes to get over to Hollywood Studios for our reservation for 50's Prime Time. We left our stuff with bell services and got on the boat. While we were eating, conceirge sent a text that our room was ready. We were given an amazing upgrade to a lagoon view right outside the lounge. It was so surprising! Upon our arrival back to the room there were birthday cards for both of us, a graduation card for him, balloons with candy and a hidden mickey book for Dave. We weren't expecting any of this. It was just amazing Pixie Dust and we knew we would have a great trip ahead of us!!

So here's our first meal:

I'm not good with names, but we had a male server who introduced us to everyone we sat around. It was fun, we kept our elbows off the table and he wasn't too overbearing about finishing meals, etc. It was fun, but not too much for 2 adults. We saw some wait staff that we may have been annoyed by--but it may have been fun for kids.

We both got cherry cokes to start.

I had Chicken Noodle Soup, he had a Mixed Green Salad. Both were great! I don't eat lettuce or most things on salads... so he will eat lots when he's here since he doesn't get them at home I am picky and allergic to lots... so I ask for plain and altered meals

Entree: I had Pot Roast with Mashed Potatoes. Very good home cooked feel. Nice and tender and delish Mashed Potatoes. If I came here again... I would get this.

He had the Chicken Sandwich and subbed Onion Rings for the fries. He liked it. It was a little dry, but it was a sandwich and we were starving The onion rings on the other hand, were Fantastic!!! Yum!!

Dessert: I had Apple Cobbler and it was so good! I was very full and tried to finish as much as I could! He had a Boston Creme Cupcake and he said it was delicious. Tasted just like a Boston Creme Pie!

We are on a mission to try all the restaurants before repeating too many. We both enjoyed our meals here, but don't think it will be an immediate repeat. It would be fun with kids.

.... and this is what we came back to:

View from the Room

Our room was above the lobby on the 5th (top) floor all the way on the left. It was room 5171. You can see it in the corner

Next Up: Le Cellier

Everything looked yummy at 50's Prime Time Cafe. We've never eaten there before and I think we might have to give it a try. Your room was awesome. I can't wait to read more!

Awesome start, but sorry to hear about the walnuts! I'm glad we went with 50's over Sci-Fi. Your meal looks delish and very homey. Looking forward to the rest.
