Hi there Karla!!! I'm looking forward to hearing about your funnel cake and all the other food goodness.

I think we were near funnel cakes when we met you!!! Oh, and tell Paige that I am still impressed that she can do the splits all ways!

Can't wait to hear about all the dining!!!

BTW: That was nice of the CM to work it out so you didn't have to actually change rooms. Very handy!

Yep, that funnel cake drew me in like a magnet! Heck, I've even taken a photo of the funnel cake building in Epcot and tear up every time I see it, so yeah count me in!

I'd be very happy if you can successfully influence me - you've already piqued my interest in Teppan Edo.

That is funny! We lived 2 streets away from Haws until we moved in July. We only moved about 7 blocks from where we were but out of Norristown Borough. Glad to have you along for the ride.

We did have a good amount of goodness on our Deluxe plan. And you are correct about being near a funnel cake spot when we met, but that is not where my funnel cake experience happens! But I will give you a gold star for knowing we were near that location at our meet. The CM was really nice as were all the ones I dealt with at AoA and I made sure to tell the managers about that as well.

Well I hope you end up liking my funnel cake story, but I will tell you right now it happens towards the end of my trip but there is a lot of other food in the mean time.

Well you won't have to wait too long for that because our first park day is when our ressie was for Teppan Edo.

I was really nice! Sorry about the slightly stalkerish approach I used, my bad. My DH thought I was nuts. I am just glad you didn't throw any food at me or call for security. I will be posting our line up later tonight.

So as you can see, we ate and ate and ate some more. And of course there were many snacks to be bought. For our entire stay, we had 64 snack credits to use and we used them in many new and different ways than we had before. I am proud to say that we didn’t buy a single bottle of water as a snack. We did buy some large sodas for my son, but everything else was edible and we have pictures of just about everything.

I will also be doing a cost analysis of sorts. I kept all our receipts for snacks and meals. I will tell you how much they cost with each post and then at the end tell you if we made out on the deal with partial free and if we would have saved money even if we had paid full price for the dining plan.

My DH has come up with a rating system for this review so we will just swim with it. As I said before, we stayed in AoA in Finding Nemo. So having said that, we will do

5-that is the height of our liking and would eat this forever and a day.
4-that is a meal that was very good but just missing something.
3-that is a meal that I could make at home just a well.
2-that is a meal even my husband could make better (and he can’t cook more than hamburger helper )
1-that is a meal that my cat cooked and wouldn’t even eat.

Up next, what we actually ate at our first Disney Meal…..AHHHH! Disney Food, here we go…..Raglan Road.

So many wonderful ADRs Karla! I'm looking forward to hearing about your Spirit of Aloha meal. I think I've only seen one other review of that dining event.

Looking forward to your Teppan Edo review!

I will give you a little hint about Teppan Edo. We had just one slightly disappointing moment. As for Spirit of Aloha... you will have to stay tuned for that one!
