I'm still reading along just haven't had time to post much and I certainly can't keep up with the guessing game. I loved the latest update. I wonder which Princess Maddie will choose to be this time around?

Haha, you should have! Then I would be in the lead!!! But tied for first is really awesome too - whoo hoo!!! For your AK day, you must be having breakfast at Tusker House and then I'm thinking that maybe you'll head to Downtown Disney for some shopping and dinner at Fulton's Crab House.

And then for this weeks match-ups, here are my picks:

Fulton's Crab House

Tusker House

Kona Cafe

Wolfgang Puck Express

I just finished reading your last report. Sorry for all the comments, but I was that behind. Since I am so behind on everyone else's, I am going to jump in live here to stay caught up. I already have my choices in but realize I am also supposed to guess which ones you will be dining at. My picks for that are Tusker House (yummy) and Fulton's (I have always wanted to try it even though only Crap is into seafood, but I know all 3 of you like it).

First off, you are so stinkin' crafty! Your sewing projects are awesome. I didn't have a chance to read through all the comments, but if you have an Etsy (or similar) shop, could you send me the link?

Also, I am loving your PTR. So fun! Looking forward to following along to see the remainder of your plans.

Yikes! I thought I already posted this, but I guess not.

For next week's match-ups:
Hollywood Brown Derby
Tusker House
Kona Cafe
Wolfgang Puck Express

For Day 4 ADRs:
Tusker House

Day 3—Yay for BBB! The “Princess Decision” is a hard one for sure, but I think she’s up to the task! Cinderella’s dress is SO pretty, but Maddie will be divine no matter who she chooses!

It will be tough to surpass Fairy Godmother extending the invite! I like the Tiana connection, especially since Maddie knows that Tiana is tight with Cinderella because of the royal guest room.

Yay for BBB. I can't wait to see who she chooses! My DD won't be old enough this trip but I think she would love it for the next trip!

My ToT picks this round are:

Hollywood Brown Derby, they both have gotten awesome and awful reviews, but I love Cobb salad (minus the bacon lol) and love DHS so I'm going with HBD, I would like to try Fultons sometime though.

Tusker house, I actually have an ADR at H&V and I think we will enjoy it and my DD is going to love it but I really think TH would be a better food choice!

Kona, tonga toast and pressed pot Kona coffee= I do have ADRs at both though lol!

WPE, I have heard great things!

My picks for your day are:
Tusker House
Fultons crab house
Me- Nicole + DH DD (2) Lucy

Here are my picks:
Signature/Celebrity Chef- Hollywood Brown Derby
Character/Dinner Show- Tusker House
Table Service- Kona Cafe
Counter Service-Wolfgang Puck

I keep going back and forth with the ADRs so I will stray away from the group and say Tusker House and Narcoossee's
:Me-Megan and DH

Shannon, I am hopelessly behind. So I am just reading and only making a comment or two.

Let me just say we LOVE Boma for breakfast (ate there last week and loved it); we've never done dinner.

We've also eaten at Fulton's numerous times (it was the first restaurant Mark took me to when we went to Disney for the first time together) and we really like it there.

I love how you always find clever ways to for Maddie's invite. I am sure one of your ideas will work. I cannot wait to see which one wins.

I am super excited about checking out Be Our Guest too, so I understand skipping breakfast.

My meals would be: Fulton's, Tusker House, Kona and Wolfgang Puck Express.
I'm so glad to see you back on the DIS Kimberly! I have seen you comments on the old TR and I promise that I'll get over there to respond to them eventually!

Thanks for playing along!

I think Maddie will be excited to get an invitation either way!

And with that, I am no longer in the lead. Hahah just kidding. I just thought CRT would be too obvious! Sometimes I over-think things.

I'm guessing your ADRs will be Tusker House and Fulton's Crab House.
I know she'll be excited! I guess I just want to make it better every year.
There's plenty of time to catch up!

Thanks for playing Marissa!

A good thing of course!

Only if he votes for Whispering Canyon.

What about the endless parade of meat to your table? Oh well, if ketchup is what gives it the edge, I'll take it.

Ok, now my next picks...

Brown Derby - Never been there, really want to try it sometime. I really don't have any other good reason for picking it.

Tusker House - The last time I ate at H&V was hands down the worst meal I've ever had on Disney property. It will be a while before we give it another try.

Yak & Yeti - Never been to either one. I wavered back and forth, and do want to try both, but I'll pick Yak & Yeti just because it is something a little bit different.

WPE - Nothing against Cosmic Rays. I really do like it, but the only advantage it has over WPE is the fact that it is in a park and therefore more convenient. Oh yeah... and there's Sunny Eclipse too. If you just look at food quality, WPE wins it hands down.

I can't believe it!

I think you've got some good ideas to deliver the "invitation" to Maddie. Sure, it might have quite the same effect, but you've got some good ideas in place. I'm sure it will be fine.

My picks for ADRs
Tusker House
Fultons Crab House
I'm sure she'll be excited no matter what. I know we'll come up with something!

Thanks for playing!

Hollywood Brown Derby- Never been but I'm not a big fan of seafood so Fulton's is out.
Tusker House- Looks good and fun! And I've heard so many bad things about H&V.
Kona Café- Would love to try the Tonga Toast!
Wolfgang Puck Express- Probably my favorite QS on property! Do the others even compare??
Thanks for playing! I'm thinking maybe I'll hop over to WPE this year while Bry is grabbing his lunch from EoS!

The Character/Dinner Show region features:
7. Tusker House - we ate here last trip to get us into AK early but its wasnt our favorite breakfast - I think I felt rushed or something..but I'd probably pick it again!!

The Table Service region finds:
10. Yak and Yeti - we LOVE LOVE LOVE Y&Y!! love the wings, love the beans, love the tempura shrimpies!!!

And, the Counter Service region features a real barn burner:
7. Cosmic Rays - we havent been to WPE, and Im sure its fabulous b/c I know the pics I've seen make it look fabulous, but CRs is sooooo convenient right there in MK....


OK - for the "Guess My ADR Game", Im going with...

Tusker House in AK
Fulton's Crab House in DD for your non-park dinner!!
I love Y&Y so much! I was so tempted to return this trip. The green beans and wontons were divine!

Originally Posted by lvcourtneyy View Post

For the Tournament of Food I say,

Fulton's Crab House cause it sounds delicious

Tusker House: see above regarding how awesome we find it

Kona Cafe for no real reason other than it sounds like I'd like to eat there

Cosmic Rays because we love Cosmic Rays. Even though the person taking my order last time really ruined the experience. We took Presley to eat so Jen and Rick could ride some rides. I had the 2 year old in my arms cause she didn't want to sit in the stroller. She wanted apple juice and the lady working had put her juice in her line of vision but hadn't given it to us yet. I asked her if she could give me the juice to end the tantrum currently occurring in my arms.

Her response "I can't give you the juice until the food is ready." Gr. I was mad but I won't hold it against them. Still an awesome CS.

I love how you guys make it a point to invite Maddie to BBB. It's such a cute way to show her that it's a special experience and not make it about the money. I personally think she'll pick Rapunzel next time!
I have to say that Tusker House was our most surprising meal last trip. We were expecting another run of the mill character breakfast, but we were blown away! It's so great isn't it?

Ugghhh! That's super annoying. I can't believe that they wouldn't give a little girl her juice! What's the big deal? You'd already paid for it!

Thanks Courtney! I wouldn't be a bit surprised if she chose Rapunzel. I do think that she's a little mommy pleaser too though, and she knows Belle is my fave so that's a front runner as well. I've told her 100 times that if she gets to go back she should choose whomever she wants.

This next one is harder. Well, I'm pretty sure about Tusker House, but the second one could be several restaurants. I'm really hesitating between two. Okay, here goes nothing. I'm going to go ahead and say that day 4 is close to mid-trip, so a good time to go shopping. With that, I will guess Fulton's Crab House as your dinner ADR.

My favorite princess out of the possible choices for Maddie at BBB is Rapunzel so I hope she chooses that. I know she will be pretty no matter which one she ends up choosing though.

In the Signature/Celebrity Chef region:
Hollywood Brown Derby

I've been to both. The food was pretty good at both, but we really had an outstanding experience at HBD.

The Character/Dinner Show region features:
Tusker House

This is the hardest decision. I think Peanut will enjoy the characters at H&V a lot, but personally I would prefer to try Tusker House. I'm not a very adventurous eater, but I think the characters are so cute in their safari outfits, and the restaurants looks beautiful.

The Table Service region finds:
Kona Cafe

This one is easy for me. Kona Cafe is one of our top restaurants and we love going back again and again.

And, the Counter Service region features a real barn burner:
Wolfgang Puck Express

I don't like the look of Cosmic Rays, and the burgers are just as good at Pecos Bill. Also, WPE offers some unique choices. The pizza I had there was very tasty.
Hollywood Brown Derby is on the tentative list for next trip. I might make a dinner ADR there and use the F! package. I've heard great things about it.

I think Rapunzel is a really good guess. She wavers weekly on her choice (she's obviously planning for just in case she gets invited. )

Thanks for playing Mel!

I think I have this ADR game down now

My picks for day 4:

Tusker House
Fulton's Crab House
You totally have it down now Karen! I'm excited to try both meals at BoG. Maddie is so darn excited to eat there, that she's pumped we're going twice. I think it might become her new favorite (currently the castle of course!)

Thanks for voting Karen! It is getting harder!

For my guesses as to your ADR's: Tusker house and Fulton's.

I think either way of delivering the invitation sounds nice!! I'm sure Maddie will be so excited to be going back to BBB, she'll be thrilled with any delivery method!!
No problem! And, you are exactly right. She won't give a toodle about how she gets invited, as long as she gets to go!

ADR guessing game

Tusker house ( one of my favorites. We do this every trip and it is always great experience and delicious too!)
Hmmm this is hard, since you are so close to DTD im gonna go with fulton's! We didn't have the best experience here last time, but that could have been a onetime thing. :sad the food was okay, but the service wasn't.

Tournament of food

10. Fulton's Crab House -never been to HBD

7. Tusker House- one of my favorite restarants, in my favorite park

10. Yak and Yeti - never been here, but in my favorite park, and it looks good.

7. Cosmic Rays- one of my favorite CS, nothing better than some burgers, and watching wishes at the same time.

Thank you! and Thanks for playing! You should try Y&Y one of these days, we really, really liked it. The food and service were both awesome!

And you know how much I would love a sparkly skirt, but I absolutely do not want you to make one now! You are so busy making amazing clothes, being a mommy and planning for Disney...I couldn't add anything else to your full plate! However, I do want to be the first in line when you are able to start selling on Etsy. I am definitely going to be one of your biggest customers! I am so excited to see Maddie's Alice dress and I cannot wait for the princess outfits. You are undeniably talented!

This week I am getting my ADR and Tournament of Food choices in early. We have 14 days until we leave for Disney World and I have lists upon lists to complete! So here goes:

ADR Guesses:
Tusker House for breakfast
Fulton's Crab House for dinner

Tournament of Food:
Hollywood Brown Derby - We have reservations there on May 4th for the Fantasmic Package, which I would have never known about if you hadn't written about it.
Tusker House - Animal Kingdom is my FAVORITE park!
Yak & Yeti - Simply based on your ahhmazing review in your previous trip report!
Wolfgang Puck Express - We are trying this one, too!

Thanks again for so generously offering your time to make our days a little brighter! I am loving your plans and I know you are going to have such a wonderful time!

Thank you so very, very much for the (always) kind words. I so appreciate it. I promise that you'll get a PM the very minute that an Etsy store goes live. Thanks again-you made me smile.
