I had read most of your dining reviews, but somehow never got around to commenting on them. BD is one I haven't yet had any desire to try, but it sounds like FF may be a place I need to plan a meal at in the near future! I totally agree on your assessment of Olivia's as I think it is a wonderful restaurant and easy to add at the last minute! Great experiences with the food AND the service there, and I definitely agree with those who think it is one of Disney's hidden secrets!

50’s Prime Time Café

We had lunch here during the morning we spent with Marv and Jonathan at DHS. Marv had volunteered to go there with us as I had complained at some point that my previous experiences there were rather boring as it seemed that the servers were too hesitant to “play” with the foreigners. So Marv did his best to get into trouble! We did have quite some fun – got an additional family member from a neighbouring table as she was sent away from her family. And Jonathan was so quick in finishing his drink that he got multiple refills – all at once!!

That is a great picture of Jonathan! We both had a wonderful time meeting and doing some park touring with you and Katharina! We too felt like we made some very good friends during that trip! I was hoping I didn't embarrass the two of you too much with my antics at 50s PT, but since you felt we probably should have planned a few more meals together, I guess I didn't!

The food was good, but I did not find it great. It was a bit bland and felt very “mass produced”.
Yes, I guess growing up in the south I have a different palate from some people who post here, and definitely someone who is from another country! I agree that some of the food at 50s PT seems "mass produced" and I would definitely lump the meatloaf in that category. The one time I tried it I was far from impressed as this tasted nothing like my definition of meatloaf! The chicken and the pot roast are my definite favorites, but I understand they have a new item on the menu (pork chop) that sounds really good, so I may have to give that one a try the next time I am there!

Sorry you didn't enjoy your meal at Kona so much! I agree on the bread, and the steak I had there one night was one of the best I have had at Disney, so I guess that is what happens when you order TOFU!!! (and you think I have strange tastes in food.........)

Sounds like we have very similar tastes in food! I guess I can plan my future meals around your positive Disney dining reviews!!!

Yes, look at the high price you paid that one fateful early trip staying at Kidani..........

I don't know whether I ever mentioned it on your TR, how I impressed Remy at Mammoth Caves how I knew everything about the desinfection of shoes, hehe. The Dis is educating! Oh, and about the Slugger factory Thank you very much
We then flew to Las Vegas and drove to San Francisco - but not on a direct route: via Valley of Fire, Hoover Dam, Painted Forest NP, Momunent Valley, Natural Bridges NM, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Cedar Breaks NM, Capitol Reef NP, Wendover, Great Basin NP ...... and San Francisco. We didn't spend as much time as we wanted at most of the parks, but it was too hot for hiking anyway - at least for us. That's why we have to get back...
Sounds like it was amazing! We have a lot of those western NP's on our bucket list. Someday we'll get to see it all!

If your flight time cooperates try to get as much sleep as possible during the flight (ear plugs help with sleeping on a plane as well as those little pillows that you put around your head as they prevent your head falling to the side. Once at your destination try to not take a nap, but get into the new rythm as soon as possible. Drink lots of water, but stay away from caffein. And try to spend a lot of time in the sun/outside after the flight. The daylight will help your body to adjust.
Thanks for the tips! I have always had more trouble traveling back east as well. I've never been very good at sleeping on a plane, so that's part of the problem.

I'm always shocked when people don't like my favorite places...
