Hi all! Going to WDW in 12 days with my DH, DD (3), DM, and DF (mother and father). We're doing a CS only trip for the first time ever! My parents and I have been there 20+ times, my DD once and my DH and I have gone twice. We've never done CS only.

Looking for recommendations for 11 meals over 6 days. My DH and I are doing FWF for our anniversary one night and I already know what I'm having!

Keep in mind that I'll be 5 months pregnant and greasy food causes major tummy upset!

Thanks in advance everyone!

Thank you both! I've never thought to head to another resort for CS. What a fabulous idea, we can explore another resort and try different food. I'm all for that!

We recently came back from an almost-all CS trip. One of my favorites was the Columbia Harbour House in MK. We went there twice, we liked it so much. Both times I got their salmon. You mentioned trying to stay away from greasy foods and the salmon was such a nice, light meal. So if you like salmon at all, it's a great option.
Congrats on the baby too!

Yes, we take one day out of our vacation and resort hop all day from Breakfast to late night snack.

This is one day we truly pig out and eat as much as we can.. Not always full meals, maybe a snack here and there.

We just returned from 8 day vacation and had the QS plan. We loved Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD. The Columbia Harbor House was good. We ate at our food court ASMo and had roast turkey dinner it was really good. Had dinner at Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary and had pot roast also very good. The American Pavilion has a strip steak platter it was ok not great. There are many really good options besides hamburgers for your meals. Check out the menus to get an idea where you would like to eat.

The chicken shawarma platter at Tangierine Cafe in Morocco at Epcot is delicious! I also really love the salmon and couscous at Columbia Harbor House at MK.

Flame Tree BBQ in AK is really good, I love their salad with chicken and my DH
said their ribs were delicious!
We also love Earl of Sandwich at DTD, try the holiday turkey sandwich!
On our trip in January we are looking forward to trying BoG for lunch.
Hope you have a great trip!!! We are also doing mostly CS this next time, so I look forward to reviews on everyone's CS favorites

We're going the week before Thanksgiving and were planning on upgrading to the DDP (we have free QSDP) but we may decide not to upgrade. I have been looking at the menus and feel like I won't have to eat burgers and fries the whole trip. Especially at Epcot. Plus I do dining reviews and there aren't many QS ones around. Might be nice to show the options out there

Earl of Sandwich at DTD has some great non-greasy choices, lots of variety for everyone.

Definitely check out BOG -- best atmosphere for a CS restaurant by FAR. Food was good, too, and you almost feel like you're at a TS with the food brought to your table, real dishes and silverware.

At Columbia Harbor House they have a sandwich, I forget the name, but broccoli slaw, hummus, tomatoes. Delicious!
