Totally enjoyed your reviews of the places you ate during your vacation has me rethinking a few of the ADR's I have planned for our trip in November, perhaps I can shave a few bucks off our expenses while there, we will be paying OOP.
Thanks for taking the time to take the pics and write up the reviews

Like minds

sk8jdgca, thank you so very much for all your time and effort in sharing your experiences with all of us.

I tend to read TR's by folks that I have things in common with and you and I have many. I like a bit of lots of different things, prefer to eat a bit here and there rather than gobs at one sitting, and I always save some of my favorite food on the plate for that very last bite.

The pictures really made it all come to life. When I go someplace new I like to linger around and see what the other folks are getting before making my choice. Nothing worse than having 'plate envy'.

Sounds as if you had a wonderful trip and I applaud you for asking if you could share a table. What is the worst thing, they say no? On the other hand I have made many good friends that way too.

Slightly Goofy

Great Review!

Thank you for sharing with us. Great tips and insights and your family is adorable. We definitely will check out some new options this time around. We are anxious to try the "Canadian" cheese soup recipe, but it is too hot in Texas for soup this month.

Aw Gawrsh!!
Thanks guys-Slightly goofy, your review was one of the reviews that helped me. My big problem with the regular dining plan is that the tips end up being more than I would normally spend. Our Meal at Jikko was $45. If we were on the dining plan-I can imagine that the tip only would have been around $25 and we wouldn't have got an appetizer. I know there is free dining but it really isn't free-right???

Great reviews! We have the regular DDP for our next trip, but I can't wait to try WPE. That mac and cheese and meatloaf looks fabulous!

Thanks for the great report. We have never done the dining plan but you gave me something to think about the next time we go.

Dh and I found the strawberry and pineapple bars on our last day on our last trip. We each got one and switched halfway through.

I have been lucky enough to be able to find similar products here this summer. They usually had strawberry but pineapple was harder to find. When I did dh loved them. ANd yes they are pretty healthy. They are less than 100 calories each and not much fat.

Glad you had a good trip.
