Nice ADR list!!!

I had to back-track to see if you were having the DDP again this year but it looks like you aren't unless that has changed! That's always a huge issue for us to decide. We love 1 TS a day and for us, that one TS is the price for the DDP for the day so we usually just add it on. We found that even at $48 a day (our DDP for last week), we were still able to meet that $48 with use our TS and if not that, it was for sure our TS + a little of the CS lol. TIW is good too but I've decided it's sometimes a better option for those who live in FL or go to WDW a ton and don't always say on site or get a DDP. I probably won't buy TIW until I move back to FL. Anyways, that's just my 2 cents, you might want to think about adding on the DDP based on some of those TS meals you have planned, especially if you love getting dessert

Queen, great list of restaurants and fun DIS meets too. We love Cape May Cafe...I think you and Jasmine will too. Tell Jas to enjoy that soup for me as we aren't going to LeCellier this year and I will miss it (although I maya try to get a cup to go).

ADRs look great! I'm trying to decide between Coral Reef and Chefs for dinner on our fist night in September. We have never been to either. If you had to choose between the two which one would you go with?
We ate at Sci Fi this last trip and we all liked it a lot! I had the beef and blue salad (with ranch instead of blue cheese dressing) and it was fantastic! I would most definitely go back just for that! The atmosphere is awesome too, though! Hope you like it better this time around.

Great update Jackie! The ADR's sound great! I'm jealous! I'll put my input in on them
-Raglan Road: never been, but sounds great! I actually found a restaurant in Downtown KC called Raglan Road that I now have to try!
-Le Cellier: Me and my mom tried to get in there on our first day at Epcot for dinner because we had a big lunch and didn't think that we'd be hungry...but we were! There wasn't any openings so we couldn't get in.....but that's a must for my next trip! The pretzel bread and cheese soup looks amazing!
-Sci Fi Dine-In: This was our first meal of the trip and the first time at that restaurant! The food wasn't amazing, but it was good enough! I loved the milkshake and onion rings! I went there more for the atmosphere, but it was still fun!
-Boma: Me and my family ate there multiple times back in 2004 when we stayed at AKL and it was really good! I loved their vanilla rooibos tea!
-Les Chefs' De France: Never been! When we went last trip we picked some up snacks at the Boulangerie Patisserie and they were all amazing! Here's all the ones we tried over the course of 3 different trips!
Caramel Souffle
Chocolate Mousse
Coconut Pyramid
Cream Puff
Napoleon
Cheesecake
Pralineige
-Tusker House: Great character meal! I loved the characters and the atmosphere! Here's two pictures! Make sure to get the Jungle Juice, it's great!


-Beaches and Cream: Still haven't been! Next trip it's a must to try the ice cream!
-Cape May: Never been, eventually want to get there. Wish they were still doing the character meal!
-Via Napoli: Opened after we went, but might try it! I'm not a huge pizza person, so it's not on the top of my list.
-Wolfgang Puck Cafe: we went here back in 2004, but I don't remember it!
-O'hana: this is on the top of my list for my next trip!

Great choices (all 14 of them - phew!). You are going to have a fab trip and you must be so excited for your meet with Dawn and Caitlin. so jealous. Believe me, I have wracked my brains to figure out how to take a quick trip during that time period before my AP expires, but it just isn't going to happen.
But - I will be there in spirit!

We went back and forth over the DDP and decided not to do it. I find we eat too much when we get it and this way Jasmine and I are going to split all of our meals...it will keep this Weight Watchers girl honest If there are some meals she doesn't want to split, I will split with my sister or nieces...and yes, we love dessert but again, we'll split! The only thing I refuse to share are my Grey Goose Slushies

I am really looking forward to having dinner at Cape May...My sis and her hubby went for dinner when we were all there in Sept and they loved it. All of us love seafood, except Mini Montana, but if there's mac and cheese she'll be a happy girl

I love the pork tenderloin at Coral Reef and I love the atmosphere there! We've been hit and miss on servers there and you know how that can make or break a dining experience We had a great meal at Les Chefs in Sep also.....I think I would go Les Chefs du France....we've never had a bad experience there!!!

I am so ordering that salad...I was thinking about all the bad choices there, but that sounds delish!!! Thanks

Thanks so much for sharing all your experiences. Eating at Disney is one of my favorite things to do! One of these trips I want to do the deluxe dining...maybe the girls trip!!

So excited to meet up with them, I can't wait and neither can Jas! How much fun would that have been if you could have made something work?

Virtual high-five for the ADRs. Its like you are the gunslinger of dining reservations. First to call, and locked down some of the hardest restaurants. TWO Le Cellier? Its like angels sang when you got through to that CM.

O'Hana has been a favorite of mine for many years - food is always outstanding, the atmosphere wonderfully relaxing - and the view is one of my favorites. The bread pudding at the end is killer, but I usually save room to go downstairs to get a GIANT dole whip for the bus ride home

Boma is a new fave - they have some sort of Zebra magic cake (that may have alcohol in it?) but I was embarrassing myself by eating so many.

GREAT choices - and you now know ill be consulting with you prior to any meal plans in the future!

Happy Sunday to you & Jas

I hope you're enjoying your Sunday! The sun is shining and although it says it's zero outside it just feels better when the sun is shining!

Love O'hana's for dinner...but I never thought of going downstairs to get a dole whip for the ride home...you're one smart girl

Zebra Domes...little pieces of heaven....I have snarffed down a few of those whilst eating at Boma When we stayed at AKL in 2009 I bought some and kept them in our fridge....they kept calling to me

So I was a lurker on your last TR...there I admitted it so I decided to join the party on this one! All of your ADR's look amazing! Its been a while since I've been to the World (2006 yikes!) but I am hopefully taking my little princess for her 3rd birthday sometime beginning of next year! So I am definitely living through everyone's TR's and feeding my addiction haha. I used to work at the Yacht Club so I ventured over to Beaches and Cream quite often after work and it is delish! Hopefully this trip will not include any large creepy spiders
