Great trip report! Thanks for all the great pics. Little over 3 weeks for us! Since I'm off work at the moment I'd love to do an in depth TR with pics like yours!

Great Reviews and sounds like a GREAT trip!

I was following in the beginning and then wasn't on the DIS much but am glad I came back and was able to finish your TR!

I loved the BBQ but also 2 nights in a row might have been a bit much for me!!

I may have to try the Hearthstone Lounge! Did they have the munchies both times or just the first time?

Great report! I'm so looking forward to my trip in 32 days. I think we'll try the bbq place. I've never been and I bet the boys would like it (DS 7,5 & 2)

You said you almost got the nachos at White Water Snacks. They aren't on the menu that I could see and was wondering if they were the ones with the meat strips on them? I had wanted to try them before and was hoping to this time but was bummed they weren't on the menu. I really would like to go through the Grand just to see what it is like.

I hope you enjoyed reliving everything as much as I've enjoyed reading about your trip.
Have a great trip!

Yes, the nachos with the beef or chicken chunks, they were available when I was there at least. The GC is really nice, I'd recommend a wander if you're in DTD, there's an entrance by Sephora.

Thanks! They're fun to write and it's a great memento to relive your trip again and again, you should give it a try when you get back.

Munchies both times yup, but the second time, as I mentioned our server was a little bit slow, so it took awhile to get them.

We had a lot of just 'ok' service this trip, no really great servers.

You're getting close now! I think the kids would definitely like it. There's a lot of variety to the food, and the entertainment should keep them... entertained if they like music. Thanks for reading!

Wonderful trip report! What kind of restaurant is Tangaroa Terrace - meaning is it sit down/table service or counter service/quick service type? The food looked good!

These are the nachos at White Water Snacks. They are wonderful!! It seems to me that I didn't see them on the menu right inside the door but was on the one up by the register.

Rude bartender=no tip. Gee I am sorry that she didn't think that a mojito is strong enough, she needs to shut her mouth and do her job. I bet they have to sell a certain amount of the souvenir glasses is why she put it on your tab.


Your salad looks amazing. I think I may need to try that when I go.

Counter service I guess. You order at a touch screen, then print a slip out, grab any bottled drinks, chips, desserts etc, then go to the cashier who rings up your order and you can get any fountain drink cups from her too, then you collect your cutlery and napkins and find a seat. You get a number then your food is delivered.

Yeah, I'm sure we didn't tip much. It's too bad because the other bartender seemed really friendly and easy going, shoulda sat on the other side of the bar I guess!

I would definitely recommend it Especially later in your trip when you're craving something healthy!
