The One With the Tournament of Food 2

Well friends, the results are in and not surprisingly we didn't have any 1-16 upsets.

The resounding winners advancing to the next round are:

Signature and Celebrity Chef

California Grill





Character and Dinner Show

Chef Mickey




Counter Service

Flame Tree BBQ





Table Service

'Ohana



This is what the updated bracket looks like:





(Thanks to my awesome hubby for keeping it updated and awesome looking for me!)


I think as we get into the later match-ups we'll have some real horseraces.


This week we'll be voting on the 2-15 match-ups:


Signature and Celebrity Chef

Le Cellier vs. Shula's (has anyone actually eaten here?)



Character and Dinner Shows

Crystal Palace vs. Perfectly Princess Tea



Counter Service

Be Our Guest vs. Everything POP



Table Service

Via Napoli vs. Cape May Cafe



Vote on the restaurant that you like the best, and if you haven't visited either (or any) feel free to vote on the one that you'd most like to try! This isn't an exact science, it's just some Disney Dining lovers having some fun!


In other news I've been sewing my fingers off and should have more outfits to share with you all next week.


I guess that's all for this week guys-if you live in the midwest, stay warm!

I've never eaten at Shula's - but my parents have!!

I'll go with Shula's, Crystal Palace, BOG, and Via Napoli (having only eaten at Crystal Palace out of these! )

Too funny. We had a similar incident with a girl in Maddie's preschool class. Maddie wasn't allowed to wear Rapunzel shirts because she called the movie 'Rapunzel' not 'Tangled' and a true fan would know the name of the movie.

I told Maddie to tell mean girl that she's met Rapunzel and that Rapunzel said she could call it whatever she wants and wear the shirts with pride.
So, I guess I took a pass on the high road too.

I'm not crazy about the BBB tutu, but I do think we'll buy the T-shirt this time. Maddie would love to have it to wear to dance/gymnastics as a cover up.

It's always just this once isn't it?




I'd say vote for the one that you'd most like to try.
The high road is for other people lol

And in 2011 we decided to go on a "once in a lifetime" family vacation to Disney World. Mike & I had both been in the past separately, dd had never been. It was going to be our one big hurrah, and well...here we are about to embark on our 3rd annual in a couple months!

Le Cellier
Crystal Palace
Be Our Guest
Via Napoli


I've eaten at each restaurant I voted for, but the only matchup where I've gone to both was BoG vs. Pop... and as much as I love Everything Pop, it ain't even close.

I don't care how good the restaurants might be, at this point I have absolutely zero interest in going to the Swan & Dolphin for anything.

I was actually tempted to vote for Everything POP because 1. it's an excellent food court and 2. I feel Be Our Guest will get very far (if not win) for table-service.

I ate at Cape May Cafe and Via Napoli this past trip and Via Napoli wins by a mile!!!

Signature and Celebrity Chef
Le Cellier

Character and Dinner Shows
Crystal Palace

Counter Service
Be Our Guest

Table Service

Hi

I just started reading today and I HAD to post to join in on the fun of the tournament of food!

Shula's gets my first vote. Ive eaten there 3x and it is excellent! The lighting is dark but thats at almost any steak house. The meat is excellent but my personal favorite part about it is the side dishes. They have some amazing side dishes and salads!

Crystal Palace is a no brainer for me! It is hands down my favorite restuarant in all of WDW. The location and characters are wonderful but it really has amazing food. The buffet never dissapoints!

I havent been to neither of the counter service places but I am gonna go with Be Our Guest just because its new and in the MK and Im sure Ill be going there next trip!

The last category is the hardest for me to pick. My family has been going to Cape May for years and it is usually where we go on the last night of our trips, its become a tradition for us. It doesn't have phonemal food but it is good and its never that busy which is nice. I have never been to Via Napoli but it is on the top of my list for my New Year's Eve trip next year! Guess I have to go Cape May though since its been a family favorite for a long time.

We have never eaten at Shula's in Disney; but we ate at the one in Itasca for Mark's special 60th birthday dinner with some very dear friends of ours. As much as I LOVED Yachtsman, Shula's blew it away. The meal was phenomenal (and 100X better than LeCellier).

Here are my guesses! No rhyme or reason since I've only been to Cape May and I was sick so I didn't eat anything (not the fault of the restaurant).

Signature and Celebrity Chef
Le Cellier

Character and Dinner Shows
Crystal Palace

Counter Service
Be Our Guest

Table Service
Via Napoli

I missed the first round...not sure how that happened! But here are my picks for round 2....

Signature: Le Cellier (Although I've heard good things about Shula's, I've never eaten there.)

Character: Perfectly Princess Tea (But I think CP will win hands down, and I love it there, too!)

Counter Service: Be Our Guest (The best CS I've had at WDW!)

Table Service: Via Napoli (But if it were "best buffet" it would be Cape May by a land slide!)

Well, I agree Bryan is doing a fabulous job on the chart, but, I'm feeling a bit clueless about what we are doing! Like I didn't know we were to vote for California Grill... but, for me that was a given Don't worry, I'm sure by the time this game is over I'd have this all figured out!

Here's my pick!

Le Cellier

Somehow, I don't want to go to Shula's even if they have great steaks. I want to stay as close as to disney as I can, and how closer can you get than Le Cellier!

Perfectly Princess Tea

My DGD and I did this last July and it was certainly a highlight for us! She loves her tea party, and while it was very difficult to wake her up to go, she certainly was thrilled by the party. And, the staff was so very accommodating to us, as the girls usually get apple juice. I had requested English Breakfast Tea for both of us! Since my DGD wants to do EVERYTHING she did again, I had to explain that this was a once experience. But, since we do like our hot tea, we may just have to have an afternoon tea at the GF some time. Certainly, every princess needs to attend this tea party once! Maddie absolutely MUST to go to the Perfectly Princess Tea!!!

Be Our Guest

Oh, another princess must dine experience!

Cape May Cafe

While I've not eaten at either, somehow, this appeals more to me!

Can't wait to see all the new outfits! Maddie is so fortunate to have such a talented and creative mom!

Karen
