I'm itching for my 180 day mark!

Where is everybody planning on dining? My new to me place to try this trip is Sanaa. I really enjoyed Boma on our last visits and am excited to try Sanaa. I've heard great things about it.

Since we will be there on weekends for SWW we will stick to restaurants at DHS. This past SWW we ate at Sci Fi quite a bit. DHS is my least favorite place to dine though.

Now if they would implement a Star Wars character meal, we would be there for sure!!

I think our "new to us" restaurant that we will be trying this year is Boma. The others that I'm pretty sure we will book are Crystal Palace, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Via Napoli, The Plaza, Rainforest Cafe and Mama Melrose's. We'll be in Disney for 11 days/10 nights so I still need to pick out several more.

Are you an adventurous eater? Boma was so good both times I've been. I went in the first time more for the experience than thinking I'd like the food but I did enjoy everything I ate. The amount of wine I had though might have had something to do with how nice it was though

I think we'll try Kona this next trip as well. Heard their steak if one of the best on property and they seem somewhat underrated to me so going to try it out.

My husband and I will try more adventurous foods. Our 15 year old son is a totally different story. I've wanted to see the Animal Kingdom Lodge for quite some time now and I figured we'd eat at Boma while visiting the Lodge.

My daughter and her husband ate dinner at Kona and enjoyed it.

We've eaten at Kona and I loved the steak. My husband not so much but he is more of a seafood or italian person. I'm the steak person. The only place that I've enjoyed a steak more was the old Concourse at the Contemporary.

Oh how I miss the old ConcourseSteakhouse! The onion rings with dips was one of my favorites and I've been able to find that appetizer at other Disneny restaurants.

Believe it or not the kid has never liked mac n cheese! Weird, I know! But, if there's chicken, he'll be fine. If he leaves hungry, I'll buy him a pizza at the CBR food court.

As far as dining, it's still somewhat open to interpretation for us for a few restaurants, particularly Le Cellier... we're not doing the DDP and wanted to do it for lunch OOP, but with the new signature change I'm not sure if it will be worth it.

Last time we went (four years ago), which was more or less the first time for my husband and most recent time for me since I was a kid, the places we tried were Biergarten (fine, but no rush to go back), California Grill (would LOVE to go back but it will be closed ), and the Garden View Tea (so good!). We were trying to save money so ate in the room and brought sandwiches for lunch. We'd typically eat off-site for dinner since we had a car.

This time though, after being a Disboards fan, we're definitely going a bit more all-out on the Disney dining. Probably still eating breakfast in the room except for maybe Wolfgang Puck Express and hopefully Kona. Lunches and dinners get to be out, yay! So right now we're planning on Boatwrights, Garden view tea (again! YAY!), Kona (dinner), Flying Fish, Starring Rolls, Brown Derby, and Artist Point. We're also doing an extra special night at Victoria and Albert's There's a few CS options, particularly in Epcot, that we need to decide in addition to Le Cellier, but I'm wicked excited!

We're also heading to Universal for a day or two, and pretty sure we're going to at least do Mythos since it has such good reviews.

Any opinions on the places we plan to go? Obviously I've done a lot of research

I used to love Liberty Tree but it wasn't as good last time we went. I could talk Disney food all day!

We had Bubba Gumps 1 day on our last trip to US-IOA. It was realllly good! Our 2nd day we just had one of their CS places then had a nightcap at Margaritaville. We try and hit the Margaritaville's whenever we travel just to visit them!

Ohhh, we're talking about ADR's. One of my favorite topics. I have been thinking about what ADR's to make since I took my eldest there last year and knew I was going to return in 2013 with my DD. As of right now (and things will probably change between now and Novermber 27) are the list of ADR's I am hoping to make.

Places I have already been to: Boma, Akersha's Storybook Dinning, and Crystal Palace (Breakfast).

New Places I want to try: Be Our Guest (really want to try this), Tusker House (have done lunch there but want to try breakfast), 50's Prime Time Cafe, and Ohana (Breakfast). I also want to try WGPE but I don't need an ADR for that one.

I was kind of thinking of trying 1900 Park Fare, but I have heard from several people how the CM's there have been rude. Decided to change it to the new restaurant instead.

Only 108 day until we can make ADR's. I like counting down each step of the trip, this way it makes it seem quicker. You know, 108 days looks better than 288.

We will be dinning at Ohana, Chef Mickey, LeCellier, Teppan Edo, Cape May Clambake, Boma and trying Hoop Dee Doo for the first time.

What do you guys think of Hoop Dee Doo?

Speaking of Boma, we love it. I have A 9 year old DS, and A 12 year old DD and they both love the food. They especially love the juice. AKL is beautiful and we love to go out and see the animals. Give it a try.

My youngest used to be so picky but lately has been getting more adventurous with food. My other kiddos aren't picky at all so it really makes dining somewhat fun to plan since there's not really anything we have to AVOID. My oldest wants Mexican though and I have a hard time eating that at Disney since we can get it at home. Anybody else the same way?

Not really sure if we'll do the dining plan or not but I'm going to plan like we are. I may have to eliminate some TS options later if we decide not to use it. I might just bite the bullet and buy it--who knows. We haven't been able to go with FD in awhile since we can really only go when school is out. Actually we've never been in May at all. We've changed our dates 3 or 4 times already and I'm determined to stick with what we have chosen now.

Anyways back to food!!
