Foodie DxDP Family Reviews-- updated 6/22-Via Napoli

Coming soon..... Hoping to be able to do live updates, nightly, during our trip of 2/17-2/22. (with photos from the iphone)

The cast -- Myself and DW, foodies when we have the opportunity. We generally eat out a couple times per week. Often in "casual" restaurants with the kids, but also often at slightly more upscale restaurants for ourselves. Asian restaurants, French American, etc.
The kiddies are DS-6, and DD-4(actually turning 4 during the trip).

The kids are picky eaters with open minds. Willing to taste new things, but neither of them are usually big eaters. DS has a major sweet tooth for cookies and cakes and ice cream. DD likes candy, has been asking for cotton candy at Disney World, but she is also a big fan of vegetables. Both kids generally prefer broccoli over french fries.

The plan of attack:

2/17, afternoon arrival. Dinner at California Grill
2/18 lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern
2/18 dinner at Chef Mickey
2/19 Lunch at Sci Fi Dine In.
2/19 dinner at CRT
2/20 lunch at Crystal Palace
2/20 dinner at Le Cellier
2/21 lunch at Via Napoli
2/21 dinner at Hoop De Doo Review
2/22 lunch at Yak and Yeti
2/22 dinner at Narcoose's

As you can see, we have allotted 15 out of 18 credits. We expect to have an occasional CS breakfast.

I'm particularly curious if anyone has any recommendations for the kid's meals and kid's desserts at these places in advance. My son especially, is a foodie-in-training... he is a big fan of Top Chef. Of course, he likes to taste the more sophisticated dishes, but then actually eat something simpler and more traditional kids fare.

Your plan looks great! Looking forward to reading your LTT lunch review since we will be having lunch there for the first time this year. We've done dinner there before and love it.

It's almost like they aren't my kids! I wouldn't touch a vegetable until I turned 30! Yet my daughter's favorite treat is edamame from Japanese restaurants.
And my son wolfs down carrots and melon.

Looking forward to your reviews. We are planning a trip for next Feb. I am very interested on what you think of CRT and Hoop Dee Doo.

joining in, my kids are pretty good eaters which is fab, although I won't go as far to say they prefer broc over fries.

As long as no body else on our table orders fries, my kids will eat what ever is going.

Joining in (early this time).

My DD likes the chicken/fish either piece or skewers they do at some places. These are sold as a kids meal complete with sides that can be changed. Tend to be sold at quite a few of the TS restaurants.

The chicken and fish is a "real" piece of chicken or fish either whole or in pieces, not the processed stuff.

Hope you have a great time.

3 more days and even looks like weather will cooperate. My ds has been considering his use of snack credits -- he wants Dole Whip. And my dd has been craving cotton candy for months.

Looking forward to your reviews. Your kids sound similar to my little one; not a big eater, but loves anything Asian or Italian. Not all that interested in french fries, he'll go for the apple slices everytime. We're off on our trip in just four days!
