'Ohana (dinner), one our our favourites from last time.

Liberty Tree Tavern (dinner), this is a first, had to cancel last time.

Sci Fi (lunch), another first that we did not have time for last trip.

Rose & Crown (dinner), late ADR for Illuminations. Have not eaten here before either.

Teppan Edo (lunch), another that we cancelled last trip.

1900 PF (dinner), for DD to get her princess fix, though she says she is too old for princesses now she is 8.

T Rex (dinner), another new restaurant for us. Youngest DS is not a fan of loud noises so hoping he does not freak out.

Crystal Palace (late breakfast), we prefer breakfast here over lunch, hope to get to MK for rope drop, ride a few rides then have a late breakfast/early lunch.

50's (dinner), tried this for lunch last time. Loved the food but were there for over 2 hours. The tables around us were seated after us, and they had eaten and gone before we even got our mains. Giving it a second chance as it was one of DH's favourites.

Garden Grill (dinner), a non-negotiable favourite.

Tusker House (breakfast), we were going to skip AK this trip but have squeezed in a breakfast. Loved the jungle juice.

Be Our Guest (dinner), would have preferred this not be on our last night but better than not at all.

I really wanted to try Raglan Rd, and it was a toss up between Rainforest Cafe vs TRex (we can go to RFC in Anaheim on the way home).

So glad that is over and done with.
Congrats on your ADR's Jade+3!

I'd be keen to hear what you think of Rose & Crown. It's on my "to do list". Maybe next time! At 1900 PF be sure to try their famous strawberry soup.

Raglan Road - 2nd visit
T Rex - new
Crystal Palace- 2nd visit
Le Cellier - new just 2 adults
San Angel Inn - new recommended by friends from their trip last year
House of Blues - DH's choice
50's Prime Time - new

Boma - on checkout day for Breakfast - new

I have one day at Magic Kingdom I haven't booked a restaurant for and the day my DH and two boys go to Typhoon Lagoon my daughter and I will have a lunch somewhere maybe Kona at Poly.

We cancelled Rose & Crown last time, but I like the look of the menu and it seems to have some reasonable gluten free options too. Our ADR is for 745pm, so hoping for an outside table to see illuminations.

Strawberry soup is up there with the peanut butter and jelly breakfast pizza. It sounds so wrong.

My ADRs are partially booked by me and some by the other DisGamers. On my list and booked so far:
  • Crystal Palace (breakfast)
  • Cape May (breakfast)
  • Yak and Yeti (lunch)
  • Raglan Road (dinner)
  • The Wave (dinner)
  • Tony's (dinner)

Still to book:
  • Fantasmic! dining package at Hollywood Brown Derby (one of the others to book)
  • Wishes/Hallowishes Specialty cruise (me to book, waiting for the 180 day mark to tick over)



We are doing a cookout one of the nights we're there with the DisGamers. On the menu so far:
  • Queso & Chips
  • Summer Salad
  • Watermelon
  • Florentine Croissant wraps
  • Tri Tip
  • Pesto Mushrooms
  • Fried Rice



We're staying at BCV; so we're planning on having toast and porridge in the room a couple of mornings. Alternatively, we're at the Boardwalk area...so we could try Kouzzina or pick something up at the Bakery.

We're planning on grazing at Epcot F&W for two days; so we've left lots of lunch time available so we can do just that. I considered Via Napoli; but figured that I should take advantage of F&W. I also considered Prime Time; but we're having a character breakfast on that morning and already have a full dinner planned. So, we'll think about a light lunch on that day.

And out of the 7 nights, we have full-on dinners planned for 5 of them. So, I'm quite happy with a salad at a CS in the parks.

And my next post on my PTR would be around ADRs....

I will be reading your PTR to hear about the cookout. Sounds fab.

I haven't done F! at WDW, went once at DL and it was crazy and crowded and raining. We did consider the Fantasmic dining package but I figure the crowd prediction is low, and I don't know how mr 4, who is scared of loud noises and darkness will cope. There is a big chance we will be walking out early with a screaming child.

I couldn't decide about the Fantasmic dinner package either. The problem is that neither of the two places I want to dine at in HS are included in the package.
I'm hoping that the opening of F&W Festival will draw the crowds to Epcot and HS crowd levels will be low.

Congrats also on your ADRs - they look great. It sounds like you're in for a wonderful gathering of like-minded friends.
We'll still have to see if we're going to be in the same area at the same time so we can catch up for a drink. :-)

Touring Plans and Easy WDW both predict low crowds for our dates. The 2 places we want to eat are also not in the package, so we are just going to go with the flow. We will get there early and buy the kids some popcorn or something to keep them amused.

Welcome deadheadmamma :-)

Only you know how those dining times will fit into your day to day plans. However, as far as I am aware, a good thing about early dinners like yours is that they won't clash with any of the parades or fireworks shows.

Welcome to the Aus board! The more the merrier we say

Interesting name you have. I have to know, are you a Grateful Dead fan or do you have 4 children and they've made you tired?

I've never done ADRs, we are quick service people in general but I love some of your ideas and one day, when we don't tour commando style, I'd love to do some dining places.
