10 Days Of Glorious Disney Dining! Lots Of Pics!~Complete!

Hi there! Jerseytinkerbell back for my second dining trip report! I had so much fun doing one last year and I couldn't wait to start this one. Now, let me give you a little bit of background info for this trip.

This trip is just me & hubby. We have taken 6 trips to WDW together and this is only the second trip with just the two of us. We always have family come along too, which is nice, but we were looking forward to just us this time.

We stayed 1 night at All Star Music and 8 nights at AKL Kidani. Here we are at the bus stop.



After 2 trips on Deluxe Dining we decided to go back to the basic dining plan this trip. I booked some new places to eat for our Table service meals and we got to try some new counter services places we've never had before as well.

I hope you enjoy our 10 day Disney Dining Experience!

Day 1-Cosmic Ray's (dinner) & Main Street Bakery (snack)

Day 2-All Star Music Intermission Food Court (breakfast)

10 days at Disney World sounds great! We stayed at Kidani for 3 nights in May and loved it there. Despite being far away from all the other parks it was a beautiful resort and very relaxing there!

I'm looking forward to your reviews!

10 days was great, but somehow still not enough! We hated to come home! We loved Kidani too. It was very quiet and peaceful there.

I always love your dining reviews! I can't wait to hear about your trip to F&W. I'm sad we haven't caught that the last 2 years. I definitely have to come down for it next year!

Day 1-Arrival Day!

Isn't the first day at Disney the best?! You have your whole trip ahead of you and it's so exciting! After a 16 hour drive from Jersey we checked in at ASMu at 10:30 am on Friday August 26. After a long nap we got ready and headed to Magic Kingdom for the night.

As soon as we got there I wanted to eat! I had an Egg McMuffin at 6am and I was now starving. DH insisted on a few rides first, but after about 2 rides I was insisting that we eat something.

Now, for our one day at ASMu we were not on the dining plan and I did not book any food reservations for this day since I wasn't sure how we would feel after our long ride. Today we were just going to wing it!

We tried to get in at Tony's for dinner, but they weren't taking walk-ins, so off we go to Cosmic Ray's.



At this point I was REALLY REALLY HUNGRY, so sorry that the pics here aren't the greatest. I just wanted to snap them quick and dig into my food!

DH had the BBQ Pork Sandwich and the Triple Chocolate Cake, which can be seen at the top of the picture:


I had the 1/3 lb. Angus Bacon Cheeseburger and loaded it with mushrooms at the toppings bar:


I demolished my burger and fries! I have always loved Disney's counter service burgers for some reason, but this trip it wasn't as good. I'm going to have to agree with what I've seen a lot of other people put on the boards. I am not crazy about the bun! This might change some of the other counter services I had planned for this trip.

After a few more rides we decided to call it a night and on the way out of Magic Kingdom I stopped at Main Street Bakery for a late night snack to take back to the room. I decided on a Red Velvet Cupcake:


It got a little bit smushed in the container on the bus ride back, but it was delicious! I have a hard time finding a good Red Velvet Cupcake back at home, but I make them all the time and love my recipe so I am very critical. This one was really amazing! A great end to our first evening!

Up next... A day of firsts!

Alright! I've been loving your dining report btw. "Hangry" is a pretty acurate description of myself before meals on vacation
