Quick Review of 7 Days of Disney Dining on DDP- 2 Adults & 2 Kids BOG, Ohana, etc

I Will Rate All On A Scale Of 1 to 10 (with 10 being best) A little background on our family. DH is a meat and potatoes kind of guy with adventurous taste buds- likes most foods. Me, I am a chicken and pasta Mexican and Italian foods kind of person. DD is a carb-a-holic who only likes chicken in nugget form. DS is a texture sensitive Aspie who likes very few foods. We did the Regular Dining Plan and stayed at CSR Business Class so we ate bagels, cereal, and yogurt every AM there.

Day 1
DINNER House of Blues- 8
DH had a burger- good
I had chicken tacos- good but small
DS had mac n cheese- bland
DD had Grilled Cheese- good

Snack Credits at Goofy's Candy Co 10
DH had Rice Krispy Treat with Butterfinger- excellent
I had Krispy treat with Oreo- excellent
DS had marshmallows with Oreos- excellent
DD had Krispy treat with Oreos and M&M's- excellent

Day 2
LUNCH QS At Typhoon Lagoon 8
DH had a burger- good
I had a turkey sandwich- ok-- too bready
DS had pizza- terrible
DD had chicken nuggetts- very good- but an adult meal credit- no nuggets on kids menu

DINNER At Ohana 10
The food was excellent- hot plentiful, chicken was amazing, great meal.
DS and DD both ordered kids choices (picky eaters)
DS had Mac n Cheese- ok clumpy
DD had Grilled Cheese- good

Day 3
Early TS Dinner at BE Our Guest 9
Very good. ADR I was most worried about not liking-- completely unfounded- DD said it was her favorite meal of the week
DH had Steak- very good
I had Chicken and mac-n-cheese- very good
DS and DD had pasta with butter- good
We all had the chocolate cupcake- very good

Late Night Snack at Cafe Rix- CSR 7.5
Limited choices make the rating lower
DH had turkey with cranberry sandwich- good
I had Chicken Ceasar wrap sandwich- good
DS and DD Split and chicken nuggets and fries- good
Both kids had gelato- excellent!

Day 4
Lunch at Cantina De San Angel 9
DH had steak tacos- good
I had chicken tacos- good
DS had Nachos with cheese only- good (was able to make it a kids QS credit despite not being on the kids menu)
DD had chicken nuggets- good

Dinner at Via Napoli 9
DH had Veal- good
I had 4 cheese pizza- excellent
DS and DD had plain pasta with butter- good
We had a pitcher of Red Sangria- excellent!

Day 5
Lunch at CSR Pool 7
DH had burger- good
I had chicken BLT wrap sandwich- good
DS had nachos cheese only- good
DD had chicken nuggets- good
**Squirrells were out of control at the pool!!!

Dinner at Mama Melrose-- Fantasmic Pkg 10
DH had Calamari App and Steak- excellent
I had tomato basil stack app and pasta with chicken in cream sauce- excellent
DS and DD had pasta with butter- good

Day 6
Lunch at Rainforest Cafe 9
DH had ribs- good
I had chicken sandwich- good
DS had mac-n-cheese- excellent (said it was the best all trip)
DD had grilled cheese- good
We used all 4 dessert credits combined and got the volcano dessert- awesome! It was more than 4 of us could eat!! So good!

Dinner at Pepper Market 2
Worst Meal of the Trip as far as price/value/quality/choices
DH had a burger- ok
I had chicken quesadilla- ok
DS and DD had pasta with butter- ok (weird fried consistency- some pieces were hard as rocks b/c of the cooking method-- gross)

Day 7
Lunch at Blizzard Beach 8
DH had a burger- good
I had an Italian-ish sandwich on cibatta- ok (very bready again-- what's with the bready waterpark sandwiches??)
DS had the pizza- again gross
DD had chicken nuggets- good

Dinner at Biergarten 8
DH had everything and LOVED it- loves German food
I had a salad and Beer Cheese Soup and Pretzel bread- very good
DS and DD hated it- they ate pretzel bread and thought the desserts weren't good (I have to agree- the desserts were bad-- I am NOT a buffet fan at WDW)

There you have it- a picky family eats all over the parks. The only meal I thought was bad and would not recommend would be Pepper Market- stay away
