love your review of Tokyo dining - I would have never said that I would like to got here before as I hate the idea of sushi but it looks amazing - adding it to the shortlist for 2012

Great review of Tokyo Dining

It really is a great restaurant that tends to get overlooked by many people

Looking forward to reading more

That smoothie your mom got @ WC looks really good. We enjoyed WC very much on our last trip. My DH got the eggs ben w/ beef brisket. I tasted it & it was soooooo amazing I still think about the one little taste I had.

Before you had even said that your DH was from MN, I saw his t-shirt, and thought, "Hmmm...looks like a MN boy." My DFI and I live in Mankato (although he's originally from New Richland)!

Great reviews! We are also going to Artist Point. Although you didn't like it, that salmon looks so good to me!

I stumbled on your review thanks to a tip that there was some information here on Tokyo Dining on the DxDP. First of all, I love that you went with your mom and your 83-year old grandma. That is just awesome!

So, my question is, are there any sushi platters, sushi combos, or sushi appetizers that you can order using the deluxe dining plan? Do you remember what the options were?

TIA!

So...I stopped updating this review because we found out that our baby had anencephaly, a fatal neural tube defect, and was going to die shortly after her birth. She died in December 2011. But now we have a beautiful, healthy son and I'm planning our next Disney trip. I've started going back through our pictures from the 2011 trip and I still have all of the food photos, etc. Should I bother finishing the review? It's been such a long time and I'm sure that all of the restaurants have changed their menus by now...but I look back on the trip now and think that we really did have a great time. It was our daughter's only Disney trip, even if she only got to experience it vicariously. I'm thinking that we'll probably want to go to some of the same restaurants for our next trip, although we'll be scaling back a lot (no DxDP this time!).

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter, but so happy you have a healthy son. Your next trip is going to be so joyous. I loved reading in your dining reports

I'm so sorry for the loss of your daughter.

If you want to take the time to do a food review, I would love to read it! Maybe it will help the time until your next trip pass a little more quickly?

(BTW, hi from another Indiana person! It seems like there are not very many of us around here)

What a bittersweet update. I am so sorry for your loss and congrats on your son!

I say keep going, I just found this now and hadn't even noticed it was old. I'd love to read more

Thanks for all of the replies! It has taken a long time to heal from losing our daughter, but having our son helped a lot. He is such a joy! We only had four hours with his sister before she passed away, so I'm relishing every moment, even when he's fussy and spitting up all over himself.

I think I will at least post the rest of the pictures and anything we remember from the meals. DH and I were talking about the restaurants tonight and looked over the pictures, and he gave me some suggestions about which ones he'd like to visit again, so I think re-reviewing them would help us to plan the new trip.

One other thing--I just updated my profile. Unfortunately, we just left Indiana (literally, 8 days ago!) for Missouri! I'm finishing up my Ph.D. and will be an intern here for a year, and then we're hoping to relocate back to Florida when I get my real job and finally become a grown up at the grand old age of 32.
