Carole.....

Just wanted to tell you we tried RusTeak in Ocoee tonight for dinner. That's the place you were asking about and is owned by the same people who run Teak Neighborhood Grill. It was....

WONDERFUL!

I had the French Dip sandwich with fries...the best sandwich I've had in a long time!

Everything was delicious and pretty reasonable. We will definitely have to go there when you guys visit.

Metro, sorry if you do not mind if I ask where that is in relation to SW. We are going at Christmas and would like some more out of the tourist places with good food, casual and not too expensive. My DH mostly likes to live in jeans and T's even if we go out to dinner. Thanks.

Don't mind at all. RusTeak is on the corner of Maguire and Old Winter Garden Roads in Ocoee which is west of the tourist area.

From SW, the quickest way is probably I-4 to 408W and then exit 1 to Colonial Drive (SR50). Make a left on Maguire and it's in the corner shopping center before the intersection.

There several ways to go via back roads but I'm not sure how familiar you are with Orlando.

From SW or Universal...you would take Turkey Lake Road north to a left on Conroy Windermere Road to a right on Apopka Vineland Road. Make a left on Old Winter Garden Road...stay on OWG and the shopping center you're looking for is on the right hand side of the road.

There is also another restaurant (Teak Neighborhood Grill) which is owned by the same people located in MetroWest which would be closer but its a different style menu.

Thanks Metro. I am somewhat familar. I don't mind driving around Orlando and have driven TL Road and AV Road quite a bit, though I am not afraid of a highway either. I think we will try the place you just ate at. My town is famous for cheesesteaks and we are up for a variety of food.

No...not quieter...louder. But remember...this place is not very big and it was packed! It was alright though...we didn't have any problems hearing each other. I'm sure you will love it! One thing though...I didn't see any Mac & Cheese on the menu so Kyle might be upset.

Got to see one of my fav Dark Siders mentioned on Facebook so I had to come here and say "HI MAC!!!"

How is everyone doing? I'm going to start reading backwards to see if there is any juicy US/IOA news to catch up on and of course... there is the HHN date release to SQUEEE over!

what dates do you have lined up?
i feel the middle and end of the month is the best time for september

i've only done one stay there, with the rest of my stays at hrh and rph.



yea, planning for the motherland is a full time job.
i do enjoy the planning but it has points of frustration for me at times.
at 180 days out, i couldn't get a ressie for the Plaza at MK.
still can't get one for noontime, so i booked that adr for a day i wasn't planning to be in that park.


this means i have to rearrange all my adr's to different days in order to get that one place i want.
all of this changing around to get the reuben sandwich and tomato basil soup.

after the motherland, i switch to the darkside for 10 nights.
i'm planning nothing except for finnegans in advance for the night i book a tour/hhn.

all i've done is book the room, booked car service.
i'll do the planning when i get there.
easy peasy.


be sure to come back here and play awhile!
Ok...I'll play. We will be at pbr from sept 12-18. Just me and the hub. We loooove it there. As my hub said when he was trying to persuade me to switch disney yacht club...we could stay a week here even without the parks. And there's always that pesky problem of kids at disney. They act like they own the place. Lol. My son is in his fi.al year o med school and we enjoyed taking him and new dil to disney but he just doesn't know what his schedule will be. We took them to rpr which I thought was superior to poly club in every way. The club especially. So its just me and hubby. Of course we tolk them to uo before harry potter so I know they want to go. Once new hp attractions are done...we
will probably surprise them. I do miss my little boy.
