JustEmmy and Emmysmommy return to WDW for some wining and dining

Well, maybe not so much wining.

Hi there, y'all! My name is Emily, and my mom (Emmysmommy) and I are going back to Walt Disney World from February 23 to March 4 for what will be our sixth WDW trip. Up until this trip, my mom has been the master planner of our trips, and she's done a fabulous job, but she is now turning over the power to me, and I will be in charge of all of our plans. Of course, the most important part of any trip is the dining! (Right next to mother-daughter bonding, of course)

This time around, we'll be trying a few new places, which is a very exciting aspect of this trip. Some of these places that are new to my mom and me are Jiko, Raglan Road, San Angel Inn (because of mixed reviews, this is just a maybe), Be Our Guest, and Narcoosees.

One factor in where we'll be eating is our split-split stay; one night in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, three nights at the Yacht Club at club level, and five nights at Bay Lake tower. We tend to eat close to our resort, so you can be expecting, for example, Yak and Yeti near AKL, 50's Prime Time near YC, or Cosmic Rays (an old favorite) near BLT.

I'm an instagrammer, and I'll be posting a few pictures of our meals, sights, scenes, etc. there, so if you're a fellow instagrammer interested in seeing some pictures during the trip, my user name is emplatacis.

More to come about our plans soon!

Hey Emily - I'm definitely in!

You did an awesome job with the planning - it's great that you're trying so many new places. I'm especially interested in hearing your thoughts on Jiko, Be Our Guest, and Narcoossee's. I've had very good experiences at all these places recently, as well as some good food at Raglan Road (the bread pudding was delicious, and my mom loves their ribs). My San Angel Inn experience was mixed - sorry I can't reassure you there.

While I'm sad that I probably won't get to have a meal with you guys at Cosmic Ray's this time, it'll still be fun to follow along here (and on Instagram)!
