Don't get me wrong. We were quite liberal with bedtimes at Disney. I was just looking at the lines and wondering if we'd get out of there while it was still Saturday.

Mmmm...roast beast... And you did get the reference, but glennbo123 beat you to it again. However, the judges have conferred, and have decided to make a special award of

+1 Bonus Point for Taking the Time to Comment on the Report

As always, the judges reserve the right to award future bonus points for...well, just about anything.

I agree. I haven't had a bad meal at Disney, and honestly don't know where some of those scathing reviews come from. I could name a few lousy food items once in a great while (more on that later), but by and large I've always been satisfied. They do a great job with a ton of demand.

I was tempted to start yelling "Don't give our table away! Don't do it! We'll be there! It's Mickey's fault!" but I didn't.
I would have liked to see this, actually.

Excellent job coming up with an alternate quote that would have fit perfectly in context. We've already established that bonus points can and will be awarded for this. Plus, Monty Python is always appreciated.

Loving the report! Even though I don't think that I'll have any chance of scoring here with the quick reflexes shown by the top scorers so far...

There's always a chance to score when there aren't any rules. I got my points produced in bulk at Sam's Club, so I've got buckets of them to give out. I'll probably throw them out by the dozen at the end. Anyway, I'm glad you're still reading along!

Welcome aboard Dave! Yahoo Mickey--I couldn't remember the name of the song. See that, you're contributing already!

And yes, the mashed potatoes were quality stuff.

I'm with Jen on knowing The Forrest Gump quote. We are going to CM for Christmas Eve dinner. The food sounds yummy to me.

We must have had CM's on an off night because it was not good at all. The character interaction was amazing though. I am thinking about maybe trying it for breakfast. Eggs are pretty hard to mess up.

I will join you in giving you many, many kudos! They're worth just as much as the points. Thanks for the compliment. As I've said before, my kids obviously got their looks from their mother's side.

Hope you enjoy it! We all agreed we would have no problem going back to eat there.

Sorry you had a lousy experience. If there's one thing I've learned on these boards, it's that the restaurants are very subjective experiences.

BTW...Barry gets a point for finding a movie quote in my TR.

There's actually a couple over there. Probably mis-spld...but they are there.

TV quotes too.

I saw that. Nice work Barry! I can't keep track of kudos or points from other TR's, though. Just adding up the points in this TR is enough work!

I looked for the TV quote when you mentioned it, but didn't find anything. Maybe I need to take another look.

Kudos!!! Taste like Chicken!!!

You know...you could just make up numbers???

If you use the Red Lens in those glasses...you might miss the TV quote (think Phenias and Ferb)...and of course there's still a Movie quote VERY early in the TR.

Tru dat. Tony's is one of my favorites and I read vastly different reviews yet we've been 2x and had great experiences.
