Continued from the previous post....

Right at one hour the buzzer begins buzzing and we head inside. We are seated in the same forest area we always do. Pictures around our table….











Madison and Chris:



I wanted to stay away from this after my experience earlier in the week!!



I always want to eat in the ice cave and never have!



Keith and I although for some reason Keith appears to have the mumps?



So this was with my phone and not great quality but much better with no mumps face!!



And one more of the restaurant:



Service was wonderful!! This was probably one of the best times at T-Rex we have had in terms of service!!

Food? Well everyone but me had a hamburger (sorry the eating had commenced!)



I had a special that included Grilled chicken breasts (wonderful grilled flavor!!), tomatoes, spinach, gnocchi , and mushrooms all topped with crunchy fried onion strings. This dish was so, so good!!! My only complaint was that the onion strings were a little on the salty side. Otherwise it was great!!



I had wanted to try the tomato soup since I had heard good things but alas this opportunity escaped me! Verdict? T-Rex is still a fun restaurant with a great theme. We have gone multiple times and never came out disappointed. It is loud when the meteors fall and the tables are close together. I mention this due to a man next to us got mad at Keith when the flash on his phone went off. Keith immediately apologized but the man was huffy the rest of the time, and he could have been a part of our table he was so close! Keith has decided though that we would probably wait a few trips before returning since the menu is beginning to wane on him. We will return though to any of those that are wondering if it is worth a trip: YES!

After dinner we made our way to the bus for another hour journey home. We walked along the outskirts to avoid the crowds.

Some pictures of Downtown Disney to leave you with!













Next up: Magic Kingdom finally while Keith sleeps and then more changes to our day's plans! MK is the only thing that stays the same!!!

I love seeing all of your TL pictures. We have never been there b/c we always go to BB first and somehow run out of time for another waterpark. Last month I took the bus to DTD and it went through TL, even the parking lot was tropical.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the food at T-rex again. That is one of Caitlin's only request so we will be back in Feb. I don't remember the tables being that close together. How annoying that the guy was mad at the flash. It's not like you were taking pictures of him or his food.

I am the same way about waiting to buy souvenirs and never going back to get them. I guess it's just the fact that maybe something better will come along and you will wish you hadn't bought so much to begin with? Remember next time, buy more

We've never eaten at T-Rex but now I'm going to have to add it to the list. See a pattern developing here?

It seems like I always hear good things about TREX. Part of me thinks Reid would like to eat there but I'm afraid the loudness would not sit well with him. I'll have to give it a try when he's just a tad older. It does seem like a fun place for a meal.

I love DTD at dusk! Well, I pretty much love all Disney areas at dusk.

Such good boys waiting for the restaurant while sending the girls off to shop!

GGAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! Giant bee!!!!!

I have yet to eat at T-Rex, but I'm guessing it might end up on my list for next July. Bringing the kiddos along, and I think they'll love it there.

Love all the DD pics and especially the sunset ones. I know what you mean about taking the same ones every trip, I try and get new ones but have many of the same ones in my trip albums. It's like good comfort food!! Speaking of food, your dinner at T-Rex looks very good. Have to admit we've only made it there once but did enjoy it a lot. That insect is just very creepy!

I think I enjoy DD almost as much as the parks. We always have a lot of fun in the shops and restaurants although we typically only make it there once or twice while we're there. Can't believe no Ghiradelli's?????

I liked the atmosphere at TL. I have always thought the BB concept was pretty cool, but I believe they are too different parks in many ways!

I don't think the tables are uncomfortably close except when you have the awkwardness of someone glaring at you. The family were from Scotland or England (guessing from the accents) and maybe that was a reason for the disapproval of us takings pictures? Or maybe he was just tired after a long day!

I support my alma mater! Of course that picture was taken prior to the colossal collapse of the football season! We just aren't having much luck in sports this fall between the Braves tanking, the Eagles zero wins and the whole disaster in New Orleans. Proud for Brees though!! I keep working on Keith but he has had that purple team ingrained for more years than I have known him!!

I definitely see a pattern forming!!

T-Rex is great and Reid will love it!! I would recommend walking in without eating so he can see it and be familiar with the surroundings. There is a little store that people can go into and still get a good view of the restaurant. My nephew is sensitive to loud noises so I understand how that could be an issue! It does get loud during the meteor showers.

Dusk at DTD is my favorite too and especially over the water! Keith will happily wait anytime to get out of shopping. I think that could have been considered killing two birds with one stone! I bet the kids would love T-Rex!! And you too!

Thank you! It drives Keith crazy that I take so many pictures of the same thing! Usually we only hit DTD about once or twice but this trip found us at DTD a little more. I know...no Ghiradelli's!! It was always so crowded....extremely crowded. this was my first trip to not go there!

Thanks for all those TL pics. I've never been to either waterpark, but it seems like I only ever see BB pics on these TRs. Both look great, but we have fun water parks around here, so when I'm in Disney I just go to the 4 main parks. Someday when I get sick of those parks and we have a couple free days, I am going to try one and some minigolf too!

I always say that one day I am going to try minigolf too...I have yet to do it! We don't have a lot of waterparks close to us and then the good ones are so few that they are crowded. You would think living in the south we would have a lot more! Because they are always so crowded here we have avoided them entirely but I found the park to not be overcrowded at all. Glad you enjoyed the pictures. It is had to see good pictures of the waterparks which I discovered when Keith and I were looking into the upgrade!
