Although I never had a chance to cast a vote, I'm so excited that the Rose and Crown won! That was one of our favorite meals from our last trip!

For the next round:
Signature - Jiko (What an awesome restaurant!)
Character - Garden Grill
Table Service - T-Rex (I have no desire to step foot in Coral Reef again. Ever.)
Counter Service - Columbia Harbor House

Casting my votes!
Jiko
Garden grill
T-Rex

I actually haven't eaten at any of these restaurants, but these are the ones I would most like to try. It's funny because in the other match ups I had eaten at practically every restaurant

Mickey's Backyard BBQ
Coral Reef

Okay.... I think I'm getting that this part is just picking our favorite eatery and isn't related to the ADRs.

Trying to catch up....wanted to pop in & say, "Hi!" Sorry I've been MIA but you know how crazy things have been for me lately.

I'm so far behind on the dining game....I'm sorry! But, I will say that I loved your last post talking about the nice people here on the DIS. I have found myself steering clear of certain boards b/c of some of the nastiness.

We keep saying we're going to take a year off... My logic was similar to yours in that I thought I wanted to make sure that DD5 had one last time of truly believing that the magic, princesses, etc. are real. That and DS1 was still "free" at Disney and a lap infant on the plane. Like how I worked that out??
Oh those cheerleaders.

I love your logic! I rationalize every single year!

You just made my morning my friend!
Thanks Queen! Your post made my day!

Now, to re-do my votes for your Hollywood Studios day, I'd said H&V breakfast and Mama Melrose dinner. I'm going to change it since you'll have 3 ADR's...

Hollywood & Vine - Breakfast
Mama Melrose - Lunch
Yachtsman - Dinner


And the current tournament...
Jiko vs. Kouzina is tough. Never done either one, but I'll go with Kouzina. Just because I like an underdog.

Garden Grill - Characters, food served family style and it is in the Land Pavilion. Nothing bad about this one.

Coral Reef - I'd probably think T-Rex is pretty awesome myself, but I think our kids would probably not care for the noises.

Pizza Planet - This would be more like a 16 beating a 1 if Pizza Planet wins, but I really think it is underrated, and I just don't care for CHH as much as just about everyone else on the DIS.



As for your last post...

Well, I'm certainly not too shy about expressing my disappointment with Disney when it is called for, but you do make a good point. They are a business and I understand that. Also, I'm a stockholder, so from that aspect I want to see them operate in a manner that will generate a return on my investment. If I don't like what I'm seeing either in the parks or from a business decision standpoint, I'm not too shy about sharing my opinion. That said, I get where you're coming from. I rarely ever spend much time on the Disboards outside of TR's/PTR's and the Disdads areas. The last time I went to the Theme Parks Strategy board, I got into a little back and forth with someone, and I just wanted to reach through my computer, grab them by the neck and beat some sense into them.


Anyway, I'm glad that there is a corner of this community where you can come and experience the magic of Disney through others any day of the year. Even if you might not get to experience it in person for several months or even a year or 2.

My hat goes off to Katt789 for giving Maddie a little bit of that magic while she's at home.
That's exactly why I love the TR boards. A little slice of WDW whenever you need it.

Wasn't that great of Katt?!

On the meals, my picks would be:

1) Jiko because I've heard wonderful things about it and want to try it so need to know what you thought

2) I'm going with Mickey's Backyard BBQ because I love bbq

3) Coral Reef; I have heard it's very loud in T-Rex and we really love Coral Reef

4) DEFINITELY Columbia Harbor House; we avoid Disney pizza at all costs
They really are the best friends Kathy!

I spent a bit of time on the rumours board and I have to agree, things have gotten snarky, I think it's just the amount of people that are "I'M RIGHT YOU'RE WRONG" I know a fair bit about entertainment now thanks to learning, listening, and there are quite a few people on tumblr who I follow who are friends with characters, and put out TRUE information, and I know things, lol, but on here, it's like "NOPE YOU ARE WRONG" kinda thing ugh. (ps, one of those secrets, Wendy is said to be appearing with Peter starting late May.....me thinks it'll be on the veranda where Ariel was...who knows about that part...]

ANYWAYS, Disney is magical and amazing and I thank you for thanking us! And no problem about the videos, I'm actually bummed I missed Tiana and Naveen, and the fairies haha. I'll do whatever I can to help spread the magic and make people happy! I have to say that my disboard friends are slowly taking over, I've made so many fantastic friends on here, of all ages, and I've had the amazing pleasure of meeting you, and Jess now, and a few others who I didn't know but approached me. It's really amazing to find out how many people on here support me and it makes me tear up thinking about all the "live your dream, I know you can do it" that I get from here, ya'll are amazing!


FYI Kenny the Pirate 'broke' the news about Wendy (where Ariel used to be) about 5 days after you posted that

You CAN do it! Don't ever give up!

I love that! No one else really does understand. I always say "my Disney friends". I don't really want any of my real life people invading my happy place so I don't share the name of the DIS

Coral Reef

Counter Service
Pizza Planet- We are big Toy Story fans!!!


Your last post was great! You hit it right on the nose! Sure Disney is expensive.... it's taken me countless hours of overtime to be able to save up for our FIRST family "Dream" vacation!! But I believe that it is so worth it. There is a YouTube video that I LOVE that starts off saying how the price of a Disney vacation keeps going up and up and asks if it is worth it or not.... it then goes on to show clips of their family during their trip and just how HAPPY they all are! So the answer is definitely "YES" it is worth it! (IMO)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpiQ-D_kaxY
I love an underdog too. Does me no good with the brackets though! Who on earth was picking Fl Gulf Coast???
Thanks for voiting!

And thanks for sharing that link! That's one of the best videos I've ever seen! I may or may not have teared up a time or two...

It is so worth it.

I totally agree with the sentiments you expressed about Disney. So many people tell me I'm crazy to "give Disney so much of your hard earned money", but they don't understand that what I get back from Disney...and that includes the DIS...is worth more than I could ever afford to pay. I used to try to explain it, but I've finally stopped. If they don't get it, they don't get it; and I can't make them get it. So, I just smile a secret smile and hope that something in their lives makes them as happy as Disney makes me!

Finally, I'm sooooo far behind in the ADR game! I missed out on the last round, but here goes for this one...

Kouzzina
Garden Grill
Coral Reef
Columbia Harbor House
I love the way that you expressed that. You hit it right on the nose. I do hope that others can find some thing that makes them so happy.

Thanks for voting!

Whatever you decide, Maddie will enjoy!

Pixie dust coming your way... Karen
You're right- she'd just enjoy getting to go. Next year for sure.

Thanks Karen

You know, YOU are a great friend, too, making dresses for people when you absolutely don't have to. So THANK YOU for that!

And now on to the voting.

Signature/Celebrity Chef

Jiko all the way. I haven't been to either, but I've heard a million wonderful reviews of Jiko and pretty much none about Kouzzina.


Character/Dinner Show

Tough call! Hmmm...gonna go with Garden Grill only due to the fact that it's in our favorite Epcot pavilion.


Table Service

What, are you trying to fry my brain here!?!?! Gosh! I guess I'll go with Coral Reef due to the fact that my girls love a good aquarium...BUT, I'd include a follow-up trip to the Build-a-Dino.


Counter Service

Columbia Harbour House. It was our first WDW restaurant and still a clear favorite!
Thanks Jenn, so sweet of you to say. You're exactly right. The meanies have no business here on the TR boards. We're too nice for them.

I've had countless trips filled with complete joy and I don't think there really is anything that Disney could do to really make me angry...probably not even frustrate me really. One other poster put up the YouTube video about is it really worth it, and I would say a hundred times over, YES!

Anyway, those videos are so wonderful. I teared up watching them because I can only imagine how it felt for you to watch Maddie watching them, with her eyes lighting up!

Here are my votes for this round:

Jiko (probably wouldn't go to either, but this would be the one I chose if I had to choose)

Garden Grill

T-Rex (sounds like a lot of fun)

Columbia Harbor House
Thank you so much for you post. I'm so glad to have found so many people here who feel the same way that I do.

Thanks for voting!

[QUOTE=lvcourtneyy;47882948]My Tournament of Food votes:

Jiko
Mickeys Backyard BBQ
Coral Reef
Columbia Harbor House

Although we've never actually eaten at any of these , one day I hope to have eaten at all of them! Perfect reasons to keep going back. We ALMOST booked Coral Reef for our next trip but DBF voted for Teppan Edo instead.

Your last post is incredibly amazing. Seriously. Of course Disney is a business, what isn't these days. Will we all be happy with every decision they make every single time? Of course not. There's so many different people in this world, that if you wanted to please everyone, you'd have to hide in a hole and never do anything.

I adore Disney for being a place where kids get to experience a world of magic and innocence when the real world keeps pushing them to grow up at younger and younger ages. And for allowing me to escape to that world for spurts of time since I'm a grown-up stuck in this world. A lot of people don't get that, so I retreat here where I found there are others like me!

Your points about the arguing on the Disboards are so true. This is why I lurk around here more than I post! I have enough things to argue about during the day, Disney is my happy place.
Thank YOU Courtney! You're so right-WDW is one of the few places that kids can still be kids-and so can we. It's pure magic, and the people like you that gather here make it even more special!

I agree, LilAnn's DD is such a gorgeous little girl. She looks positively awesome in that Jessie dress.

My votes for this week:

Kouzzina - I loved our breakfast there this past trip.
Garden Grill - I've read good reviews
Coral Reef - Again, it's because of a good experience there. I love the concept, and the dessert!
Pizza Planet - Yes, I know the food is pretty standard there, but what kid doesn't love to eat in the same restaurant as in the movie? Plus, I'm not a fan of the menu at CHH.
Wasn't that sweet? And yes, LilAnn's DD is adorable in that dress!

Thanks for voting!

This disboards have really brought together so many people that have a love for Disney, have a love for magic, being a kid again, we GET each other, we're the people who leave Magic Kingdom weeping because of wishes and all the pixie dust that happens throughout the day. The dis has made me realize that there really are always going to be magic living people out in the world, people that understand why I go to do Disney as much as I do, because there's certainly only two people I actually know who "got" the magic that live near me.

I will always do my best to go above and beyond to get messages to the little princesses back home, I was going to do my darndest do get a message from Periwinkle to Maddie, but we missed her by a week. I will do these things because you guys are all wonderful and amazing and deserve every ounce of magic that comes your way. You guys support my dreams, and my goals and you wish as much as I do that they'll come true. I didn't realize that until I was in LS in Sept and a woman came up to me and was all "you're katt! FOTLK bird girl! We saw the show the other day, and I was all Thats Katt's job!"

When people are being amazing enough to say things like that to me, and really truly believe and encourage, the least I can do is a little hello from the princesses! Now here's hoping the next video will be an *extra* special one where I'm lucky enough to be the princesses "friend"



You're all so wonderful!

P.S. I'm not proofreading that before posting, so sorry if it's rambley.....

p.p.s. I will more than gladly be the "fairy godmailer" for any other families out there that are wondering if they can get a special hello, a post card, a "hey, surprise you're going to Disney World again" kinda thing. I like to spread the magic!
I like rambley

3. T-Rex (I've been to both, but honestly didn't care for Coral Reef much at all. Then again, I'm not much of a seafood person and really only wanted to go there because they went there on Full House and Boy Meets World, what can I say? )

4. Pizza Planet! (Haven't tried CHH but again, not really a seafood fan. Love Pizza Planet!)

I am in total and complete agreement with EVERYTHING you just said. I don't understand the negativity involved in, well, MOST of the parts of the DIS that aren't the TR/PTR board. You really just hit the nail on the head with every word you said, so therefore I want to say thank YOU! That was such an amazingly sweet thing for Katt to do for Maddie. Awesome. And LilAnn's daughter looks absolutely precious, as usual! You did such a wonderful job with that outfit.
Thanks Marissa. And thanks for voting!

And for round 3:
Jiko because every dining report and updates on the live food thread from there are AMAZING!
Garden Grill, I like that it moves and I love Epcot
Coral Reef
Pizza Planet, this was tough because I think the food is better at CHH but Pizza Planet is just cool and we literally just showed DD the Toy story movie for the first time and I love it!

Love the doll dresses and the Jessie outfit looks adorable!
I just bought those same shoes for my DF, Crocs showed up on Zulily and I got them half price
I totally agree about your feelings on Disney! Couldn't have said it better!
I wish I'd seen them on Zulilly! You didn't miss the ADR game, thanks for playing!

Jiko -- I swoon over this every time I see reviews. I love Greek though and would probably really enjoy Kouzzina too.

2. Backyard BBQ -- seems fun for the little ones.

3. Coral Reef -- next time I go I really want to eat here.

4. Columbia Harbor House -- also on my list of places to eat next time we go.
Thanks for voting!

HI! How have you been? Glad to see you back around here! OOPS! Maybe you shouldn't read my TRs/PTRs when you're trip planning?

Those videos from Katt are the sweetest thing, Maddie must have been over the moon seeing those!!!
Thanks Sarah! She was beyond excited!

I actually haven't eaten at any of these restaurants, but these are the ones I would most like to try. It's funny because in the other match ups I had eaten at practically every restaurant
Thanks for voting! I haven't eaten at half these places!

Okay.... I think I'm getting that this part is just picking our favorite eatery and isn't related to the ADRs.

You got it Karen! Two separate games. I really should have been more clear. Sorry!

I'm so far behind on the dining game....I'm sorry! But, I will say that I loved your last post talking about the nice people here on the DIS. I have found myself steering clear of certain boards b/c of some of the nastiness.
NO worries Amanda. So glad to have met a friend like you here on the DIS!

I'm thinking a lot of people are going to get points this round.

The One with the Tournament of Food 5

It's that time again! Time to reveal the results of your votes! I'm Shan23877, and This is the Tournament of Food! (said in my best Ryan Seacrest voice-Seacrest haters back off, I love him)

Here are the results from last week:


Signature/ Celebrity Chef
4 Jiko held off 13 Kouszina





Character/Dinner Show
4 Garden Grill edged out 13 Mickey's Backyard BBQ





Table Service

13 Coral Reef upset 4 seed T Rex





Counter Service

4 Columbia Harbor House bests 13 Pizza Planet






Here's what the bracket looks like now:







And this weeks matchups are:

Signature/Celebrity Chef

5 Citricos vs. 12 Monsieur Paul (again, anyone ever eaten here?)


Character/Dinner Show

5 Be Our Guest (the Beast got them into Character) vs. 12 1900 Park Fare (dinner)


Table Service

5 Boma vs. 12 Raglan Road


Counter Service

5 Casey's vs. 12 Tangerine Cafe



You'll have until next Thursday to vote. If you've never tried either place, vote for the one that you're most likely to try, or would like to try.

If I'm confusing everyone with all the games, I'm sorry. Tournament of Food is completely separate from Guess My ADR. I thought it would be fun for all of us to vote on what will eventually become our favorite restaurant in each category, and then our favorite overall. Thanks for playing everyone!
