Joining in! Looking forward to your review of captain's grille. It's one of the places that I'm considering adding for our December trip. And the jalapeño cheese pretzel is my all time favorite snack in the world. I've only ever seen it at AK. That would be great if they added locations because I would love to get it multiple times and we never go to AK more than 1 day. I hope you have a fantastic Disneymoon!

Thanks! Also thanks to your glowing recommendation of the Grand Floridian Cafe, I have booked breakfast there! I can't believe I am on the DDDP and am still paying for breakfast OOP at the Sassagoula Floatworks on our last day.

Thank you so much! I am more eager to eat that jalapeño pretzel now. I hope the Captain's Grille serves up an excellent meal. The menu looks great.

Thank you so much, Brenda! I am somewhat of a novice cook/baker. The souffles are finicky to make but totally worth it.

Hopefully breakfast will be delicious there - I see some very appealing choices on the menu, such as citrus pancakes.

I can't wait to try the fresh, hot beignets at Sassagoula's.

What you said sounds right- if I fall in love and decide to just keep coming back, there is nothing wrong with that.

Have you finished all your dining plans as well?
Yes my dining plans have been finished since I booked back in March! lol

I will be at The Plaza Restaurant the first night for dinner, paying OOP for that one since the menu is fairly cheap. Kona Cafe for both dinner and breakfast- this is my favorite restaurant! I am also doing Teppan Edo and Hoop-dee-doo, both for the first time, so I am really looking forward to those!

Your dining plans look great! I can't believe I can finally say I will be at WDW next month!!!!!! Maybe we will cross paths!

I have my eye on that Lobster Benedict, DDW.

You planned so early! I had about 90 days to go and even then I couldn't get every ADR I wanted (Le Cellier). Hoop de doo sounds like fun. I definitely want to try that the next time we end up in WDW.

We probably will cross paths at POFQ.

Here's a random question - are you planning on using credits or paying OOP at Fulton's for lunch?

The reason I ask is I'm pretty sure Fulton's is a signature restaurant, but the lunch menu doesn't seem to offer very expensive entrees. It might be a good idea to pay OOP there (or pick a 1-credit restaurant at DTD and use credits).

I just showed DH the menu and he kiboshed it. He hates seafood and found it a bad value for signature credits. Instead, I booked Portobello. The menu is more his taste. Thanks for the valuable advice yet again, DDW.

Quick question, DDW. We are arriving at MCO at 12:30pm. Do you think we can make it to Downtown Disney by 3pm?

I think 3pm should be doable. Depending on how things go, getting to your resort could take 1.5 - 2 hours, and then POFQ is relatively close to Downtown Disney.

I will also agree that you should be able to get there around 3. Maybe say 3:30 to be safe...you never know

Also, that dark chocolate coffee souffle looks awesome!

I just scored a lunch reservation to Le Cellier for 2:35pm. I will do what I need to do to get to Epcot in time. Lol. I can't believe I got an ADR. I tried so hard to get one 90 days in and it popped up. It will be super close that day though but so much better than the other choices I had for lunch. I can't think of a more perfect meal to start off my trip!

Thanks! I just booked at ADR with Le Cellier- something that is on my dream list. It is for 2:35pm so it will be close. I will take a taxi if I have to.

Le Cellier lunch is a very good choice, especially if you're using credits and plan to order the mushroom filet or strip steak. I hope you'll make it to the meal so you can try LC before lunch becomes 2 credits (apparently starting next year).

I am flying from Buffalo to Orlando so I think it will be less time to clear security than if I was flying international? I tried booking Le Cellier 90 days in and I couldn't get anything. This popped up and I am hoping for the best. If I have to take a taxi from MCO to POFQ, I will. I do hope though that DME pulls through and I get to POFQ by 2:00pm and I just need to take a taxi to Epcot.

I am looking at the filet mignon, DDW.

Wow. Two credits next year. Can't say I am surprised.

What time is your flight? We're also flying out of Buffalo this trip. We're flying direct with AirTran, our flight leaves at 8 am and we're scheduled to arrive in Orlando at 10:30. Past experience with ME has been great, we haven't waited more than 15 - 20 minutes before getting underway once we were on the bus. Depending on how many people are going to other resorts, you may have a few stops before getting to POFQ. We were lucky last year and were the first stop.

I also have to say OMG! regarding those souffles, WOW!!
