I had thought about going to Cape May, but wasn't too sure about it. I was worried there would be no beef. I like some seafood, but dislike crab, lobster yes, barb no!

What a shame the server ruined the evening, Jen. Some just get so confused if you mix the DDP and paying oop.

You had a BUSY day and got so much done. I take my hat up to you for doing all that. We usually are just too tired to do so much.

How did the waitress charge a tip to the room without you pre-authorizing the exact amount to be charged for the tip? Was it an automatic 18% gratuity that she just decided to charge to the room?

Gail doesn't really eat seafood and she found enough to make her happy. Same with my Dad.

I think on any given day this girl is confused. I love full days. this was actually kind of a slower day for us.

Yep. Both times she has told us it has to be that much and has to be charged, which is not true. if she was good, I wold have no issues, but when you argue about a tip and how to pay for it you go down in my book REAL fast.

That's outrageous! I would have been just as upset as you. I wonder how many years she has been scamming this way. I never really like complaining about people, but this one I would have had to make.

I know. I am just disgusted with this. So many people don't know how it works and will probably just take her word for it.

Interesting to hear of your experience with Susan. We ate at Cape May earlier this month and also had issues with her regarding our bill. We are locals and use the Tables in Wonderland program. She seemed to have her own set of rules for dealing with that program, too! I may just decide to have a chat with Guest Services about my experience. It didn't seem like too big a deal at the time, but I'm seeing a pattern here.

I do want to say, Jen, that I'm really enjoying your trip report. I can't imagine how much time and effort you put into the reports you write. Your attention to detail is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your trip with all of us.

That just disgusts me that she is there doing this to probably everyone she waits on.

Thanks so much. I write them to share, but also t relive the memories and have somewhere to go and reread about the trip as well.

Oh wow Jen! You had a full day of running around. I hate the stress of being late because of a bussing issue. Been there, done that for sure.

Your food looks good! I'm sorry the waitress had such issues though. That's a hassle when you are dealing with tired kids. Glad it finally was sorted out!

Jen,

Loving the pictures. I had missed a few days worth, but I'm finally caught up. That's awesome you got to catch some of the Christmas festivities. We usually get to see them every other year as we usually head down the week of New Years. I'm with you though I love it at Christmas time, the lights, the decorations, and the parades/fireworks.

Also, sorry to hear about your dismal service at Cape May. I really want to try this restaurant because I LOVE seafood, but unfortuantely i'm the only one in the family out of 6 that feels that way! haha. Is there enough other stuff for the non-seafood lover?

Mark

I love the Boardwalk area but hate when you just miss a boat.

Wow busy and crazy day but you got a lot done.

Sorry about the busses. Sometimes you get the best luck and other times you can't make a bus to save your life.

That fiasco at CM sounds awful. Sounds like a few people are having a similar issue. Sound like a call or email to Guest Services might be needed.

I've never had a problem with finding plenty of non seafood options at Cape May and I have seafood allergies. In fact, it's one of my favorite Disney restaurants! Hope you can talk the family into trying it. I did have my doubts about the non seafood options before my first meal there but was very happy with all the choices I did have. Most of the servers I've had there have been really good, too.

It was a full day and this was kind of our slower day.

the food was good. I enjoyed it. i hear mixed reviews, but we really had a good meal. Service wasn't so hot though.

I am trying to keep going on this. I am now at about 6 months of writing. And I still have quite a ways to go, so I need to get cracking!
The Christmas decor is just fabulous. I was so happy to finally see it in person.
My sister and Dad both eat very little seafood, if any at all and they both had plenty to eat. i say go for it!

The boardwalk area is so nice, but sometimes those walks are a bit long, especially when you are an impatient person like me.

I do like the buses, when they are on my time. I have had good mojo on most of my other trips, so I guess I can't complain about it this time ....but i will!

I have thought about emailing a few times, but I never have.
