7 Days of Good Eats - We're Back! Updated 4/21/11!

Hi everyone,

I'm heading to the World tomorrow and I will write a dining review when I return, if you are interested! I'll warn you now - my DH does not like the idea of me taking food porn pics, but I'll try to sneak some in here and there. At the very least, I will give you my honest opinions!

We're staying at ASMU, and the cast is my DH (age 45), me (age 38), DS1 (age 10), and DS2 (age 8). It'll be the first time DS1 is on the adult DDP. We have the regular DDP and we'll be going to the following TS restaurants:

Tony's Town Square (dinner)
Captain's Grille at the Yacht Club (dinner)
Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House
Le Cellier (lunch)
Sci-Fi Dine In Theater (lunch)
Yak 'n Yeti (dinner)
Crystal Palace (dinner)

We don't plan CS ahead; we just eat wherever and whenever the mood strikes. And of course, we'll be indulging in some yummy snacks along the way!!

Sign me up coach! I hope you sneak a few pics in even though I never take any during our trips. DW and I love to read opinions of other restaurants so we can try something new each trip. Our last trip was without kids (Nov/Dec 2010 trip report link below) and we did more dining than riding. It was great! I look forward to reading about your trip.

Hi everyone, we're back from another awesome trip to the World! I organized my receipts and added up my totals, and I'll be starting my dining review tonight. I sadly don't have food porn pics because my DH just does not go for that at all, but I will give you my honest reviews! We did make a change to the line up above - we swapped out Yak 'n Yeti for dinner at Wolfgang Puck Cafe.

I will also be reviewing the following counter service restaurants:

All Star Music - Intermission Food Court (lunch)
Rosie's All-American Cafe and Fairfax Fare (lunch)
Wolfgang Puck Express (dinner)
Electric Umbrella (dinner)
All Star Music - Intermission Food Court (dinner)
Flame Tree BBQ (lunch)
Casey's Corner (lunch)

First up - ASMu food court and Tony's!!

Intermission Food Court Lunch Review - Added 2/7/11

Hi all! It's time for day one reviews! We arrived at ASMU around 1:30, checked into our room, and headed right down to Intermission Food Court because we we were starving from our travels!

DH got a bacon cheeseburger with mushrooms and onions, fries, soda, and chocolate chip cookie. It was a typical Disney burger on a wheat bun, which we actually don't mind. DH inhaled it all, and said the mushrooms and onions really added some good flavor.

I got a hot dog, fries, soda and chocolate chip cookie. For some reason, I love Disney hot dogs - they remind me of ball park hot dogs. Of course, I added liquid fake cheese and it was delish!! The fries were hot and crispy - just the way I like them.

DS1 (who is 10 and on the adult plan) got a bacon cheeseburger, fries, soda, and brownie. He ate the brownie first and loved it because it was so fudgy! I didn't care because we were on vacay - and if dessert comes first once in a while, so be it! He did enjoy his burger and fries, as well... typical Disney burger.

DS2 (who is 8 and on the child plan) got the adult chicken nuggets, fries, soda, and chocolate chip cookie. He loved the nuggets - they were big and had a yummy crispy coating. We all enjoyed our cookies - not quite as good as home baked ones, but they are pretty tasty and are a good size.

Now - I know there's lots of back and forth about CS credits not really being counted as kids meals vs. adult meals. Here's what happened... when we checked in, the CM at the check in explained the dining plan to us and specifically told us that DS2 did NOT have to order a kids meal... that CS credits are all the same, so there is no requirement to order off the kids menu. So, we ordered him the adult meal, because the adult chicken nuggets are so much better than the kids meal nuggets. When we got to the check out, the cashier told us we cannot use a "child" CS credit on an adult CS meal. I told her to charge us for 4 adult CS meals, knowing full well that they really are all the same credits, and the CM told me she'd "let it go this time" and allow me to use a "child" CS credit for the adult meal. I wish all CM's would get on the same page about this!!!

Am glad you enjoyed your meal at the Intermission food court.

I have heard/read that CS credits are the same - it doesn't matter if you are a child/adult but obviously like you said not everyone is on the same page!

Tony's Town Square Dinner Review - Added 2/8/11

Dinner our first night was at Tony's Town Square in MK. DH and I had been there on our honeymoon 15 years ago, so it was a nice little walk down memory lane. That time, we sat in the front part of the restaurant with the big windows overlooking Main Street. This time, we were seated in the center part of the restaurant, right near the Lady and the Tramp fountain - so the kids loved our spot! The restaurant is really cute inside - but, like most restaurants in the theme parks, it was pretty loud.

We all had dinner rolls with olive oil dipping sauce, and they were delicious. Warm, crusty, yummy rolls dipped in oil - there just can't be anything wrong with that.

DH had chicken parmesan and vanilla gelato. He said the chicken was moist and the breading was good, and it came with a nice amount of melted mozzarella and a big pile of pasta. It didn't have a ton of sauce, but he likes his pasta dishes a bit dry. He really liked the vanilla gelato; it was a little bit lighter than vanilla ice cream.

I had spaghetti with meatballs and pistachio creme brulee. The spaghetti was a good portion size and cooked perfectly al dente. The meatballs were huge! They were pretty flavorful. They were light in color, so my guess is they are made with a mix of beef, veal, and pork. The sauce was just ok - it was a bit on the spicy side, whereas I like my sauce a bit more on the sweet side. But, not bad. The pistachio creme brulee was DELICIOUS!! I am a lover of all creme brulees, but this one was extra good because of the subtle pistachio flavor. It also came with a crispy cookie and candied pistachios on the side - yum-o!

DS1 had a NY strip steak with roasted potatoes and squash, and an ice cream bomb. He loved his steak - it was cooked to a perfect medium and had a nice grilled "crust". The potatoes were plain, but cooked well -I think they had just a hint of rosemary on them. I tried his squash and it was yummy, but of course DS1 wouldn't eat it! He totally loved his ice cream bomb. It's a thin layer of chocolate cake with chocolate and vanilla ice cream mounded on top, and all of that is covered with a hard chocolate coating. Yum. He ate every bite and didn't want to share!!

DS2 had a kids cheese pizza meal with carrot & celery sticks, and a kids ice cream sundae. He liked it all and the pizza had a really nice crust on it.

I would recommend Tony's for dinner - I think next time, I would stay away from the red sauce and order a pasta dish with alfredo, or a steak. It's just not my type of sauce, but you may like it! Desserts were great and the service was really good, too.
