Two Delicious Birthdays-Version 2011-10 Days of Yum 5/5-5/14 - Tutto / Yak n Yeti!

Heyyyyy. So Deena and David are going back for their birthdays again!! I know that I totally failed on my November report The holidays got crazy and I'm still working 2 jobs... so time just got away from me. I'm thinking of reviving it because I really want to share how awesome it was!! Planning for a wedding has captivated my time as well. I also went in March for 4 days with my mom. We went for the Bridal Showcase at the Grand Floridian and did the DxDDP--she loved every meal we had!! I didn't want to freak her out by taking pictures of food

So we're headed there next week! We arrive at Saratoga Springs in a studio for 2 nights (May 5-7), then we move over to Kidani in a One Bedroom for 7 nights (May 7-14). I didn't really love Kidani in March, but I booked them both at the same time (thought I'd love it based on reviews) and I kind of regret it--just too far away Hopefully the One Bedroom Savanna View makes it better. The first 2 nights we're going out of pocket and the last 7 we're going DxDDP!! We have lots of new places on the agenda and I got to thinking... since they're new, I'll want pictures--and I should do another review!! Summer is less busy for me, so I promise I'll follow through!!

So here's the agenda:

((Updated 5/15))

Thursday
Lunch: Me-Cookes of Dublin Him-Earl of Sandwich - Turns into TURF CLUB
(Then I go to the Spa, he goes to DisneyQuest)
Dinner: Ohana

Friday
Lunch: Somewhere in Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach - Turns into EARL of SANDWICH
Dinner: Turf Club (NEW FOR US) - Turns into SHULA'S

Saturday
Lunch: Rose and Crown (NEW FOR US)
(Then DisMeet in France!)
Dinner: Captain's Grille (our favorite 1TS meal) - Turns into TUTTO ITALIA

Sunday
Lunch: Yak n Yeti
Dinner: California Grill (the man must have his spicy kazan roll)
"4th Meal" Pizza from Gasparilla's

Monday
Lunch: Via Napoli (NEW FOR US)
Dinner: Citricos
(Then witnessing of a Dis-Engagement! See the Theme Park board for details!)
Snack at Casey's

Tuesday
Lunch: The Plaza (NEW FOR US) - Turns into LOTTAWATTA LODGE
Dinner: The Wave (NEW FOR US)
"4th Meal" Cookes of Dublin

Wednesday
Breakfast: Hollywood and Vine (hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog!)
Lunch: Nine Dragons - Turns into SAN ANGEL INN
Dinner: Yachtsman (absolute favorite meal)

Thursday
Lunch: San Angel Inn (love) - Turns into WHISPERING CANYON
Dinner: Cape May Cafe - Changed to Captain's Grille, then back to Cape May, lol!

Friday
Breakfast: Kona - DIDN'T MAKE IT... SO SLEEPY!
Lunch: Coral Reef (NEW TO US)
Dinner: Grand Floridian Cafe (This has changed 6 times... from Raglan Road, Narcoossee's, Hoop de Doo, Sci-Fi, Tony's, now to GFC ) Who knows where we'll end up with this one. We like GFC for lunch so it's probably a pretty safe bet we'll stay... but that's his birthday so he picks. We ended up at FLYING FISH CAFE!

Saturday
Lunch: Brown Derby (haven't been since I was in a stroller... so NEW) - Turned into Pizza Planet AND Backlot Express
Departure


So there it is. Who's with me?? Looks like lots of Dis'ers will be there so if you see us... say hello! I have new dark red hair so ignore the platinum in my previous threads and avatar I still have lots to do before we leave and my only night off is Sunday... my birthday... and we're going to BeniHana! So basically I have zero time to get ready and we're 6 days away Maybe David can help clean for the doggy sitter and help pack I shouldn't hold my breath

Look at this ticker!! So Close!!

Yay! Oh and I'm starting to get the hang of drinking! I'm turning 28 on Sunday and just found a couple wines I like... so watch out Epcot!! When my mom and I went, I had the white sangria at Ohana... that was good too! I really don't like the taste of alcohol, but I'm trying to learn so I don't fall over on my wedding day So there may be some booozy pictures too!

Can you tell I am stalking the dining boards? With my trip less than 3 weeks away and no ressies I am going nuts!

I cannot get into wine but I love hard liquor LOL Dh is slowly getting into the wine thing, started with the sparkling and now is in the whites.

You guys will have a great time! DH's b-day is the 14th so we will be celebrating it a few days late

Count me in too! And I also have been spending way too much time on the boards when I should by working. With only 13 days until our trip, I find that it is nearly impossible for me to stay away from here!

HEY!! I don't know how I just found this. SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS!!!! How cool that you'll be there for the dis-engagement! Your ticker is amazing! Love that you're starting to partake in the alcohol more! Try the peach snap in China. It's a slushie, yummy drink packed with booze and you don't even taste it! Psyched to hear about H+V breakfast since we are doing that for the first time. Also looking forward to Via Napoli (still deciding between VN and Tokyo Dining for lunch). Have a magical trip!!

So we leave tomorrow. It wouldn't be a trip if I didn't want to make a last minute change. I normally ignore the restaurant.com emails that come in because I have tons that I bought and never used for $2. For some reason, yesterday's email spoke to me. It said... Deena, you are always on the dining plan, this time, you have 2 days without the dining plan.... you need to try Shula's. So I slapped it in the shopping cart, applied the coupon code and apparently we're going to Shula's, lol. I still want to try Turf Club, but maybe we'll go there for lunch or something. I always see debates about Yachtsman vs Shula's and I want to put this one to rest too I know $25 is nothing compared to their pricing, but it's almost like covering the tip. I was also looking at their real website and saw a picture of their crabcake It looks amazing--must have it. How does everyone feel about this switch-er-roo?? Good choice??
