Dinner was at what has become one of our favorite Disney restaurants -



Ironically the first time we ate at Y&Y was our first Mom & Son trip and it was our worst meal. Something made me give it a 2nd try on the next trip and we have gone every trip since.





I started with the green apple sake -



This is so refreshing. Nice and cold and just like biting into crisp granny smith apple

For starters, we shared

The potstickers



And crispy green beans



Both were delicious. We especially love the green beans.

Andrew always gets the ribs -



These are really good. Tender, flavorful and fall of the bone.

I had the steak and shrimp, minus the shrimp



When this came out, the shrimp skewers were on the plate. I don't like shrimp which is why I asked for them to be left off. I hate to waste the food. The food runner took them right away and then our waiter came over offer a substitute ...



As much as I love broccoli, it is sure not an equal trade for shrimp!

But our meal was wonderful as always. The steak is so tender and flavorful.

Of course you cannot go to Y&Y and not get the wontons -



These are my #1 favorite dessert on property. I just love the warm wontons and the vanilla sauce. Andrew actually does not like them so they were all mine!

Somehow I once again cannot find the receipt. TIW is not accepted here but they do offer an AP discount. This was the only non-TIW restaurant we ate at because we just couldn't skip it even for the savings!

Ahhh, one of my favorite places at WDW!!! It's a not to be missed restaurant for us. I'm so glad we are going in December.

I'll say, not an even trade broccoli for shrimp... Hmmm let's see, broccoli is $1.99 a lb and shrimp is $14.99 per lb.

I have to fight Em for the wontons. Lucky you if Andrew's not a fan.

I'm with Andrew! No Wontons for me! They just weren't for me I guess!

I do like Y&Y, just not what I ordered last time lol. I also agree broccoli is not a fair trade for shrimp!

Count me in as another who doesn't get the wontons - that said mine were served stone cold when I tried them so I'm probably scarred for life

Hi all. I am so sorry for the lack of updates. I have some serious life stuff going on right now that I don't feel comfortable posting on a public forum. I just haven't had the energy leftover for the Dis. I think things may be turning a corner so hopefully I will get back to finish this soon. I am late in to work tomorrow and Friday so maybe I can squeeze in an update before I go in.

And I am so far behind on everyone else's reviews.

I will get back in the Dis spirit ... just not quite there yet.

Thank you all! Knowing my Dis friends are out there is a nice feeling. I should have said that DH, Andrew and I are fine. Hospice has been called in for a family member and dear friends are going thru a horrible time. I am just feeling helpless. I know that when I am able to get back to Dis time it wi be cathartic for me to finish this!

Hugs to you all!

Okay - I am really late arriving here, but I couldn't just read all of your amazing reviews and not comment and let you know how much I was enjoying them! I love that you and your son have had all these great vacation experiences together - so special. I look forward to the rest of your reviews!

Vicki, I'm so sorry you're going thru some rough things right now. We've been riding the emotional roller coaster ourselves. You & your family will be in my prayers & I hope that you find some respite in your DIS time. I find it therapeutic at times!! Big hugs to you!!

Ok, so I am going to finish this up. Things are on a bit more even keel. I am mostly just going to post the pics and give my general comments on the meal. Not as much detail as I usual give, but at least it will get done!

So Saturday we originally were going to snack around DHS but somewhere along the line I wanted to go to



I will say that Andrew HATES this place and came along purely because he knew I really wanted to eat here.



Andrew had the onion rings and I had the warm cheese plate -



Both were very tasty. I had never had this cheese before and I really enjoyed it. The onion rings were perfectly hot & crispy and not at all greasy.

I had a creamsicle milk shake



This wasn't very orangey but still good

Andrew had chocolate



We shared the Mom's favorites -



We already split. You can see how not happy DS was. He wouldn't eat anything other than what is on that plate. I love, love, LOVED the collard greens and pot roast. Really would like to get the pot roast dinner with a side of the collards when we go in December!

No dessert since we had the shakes, but had to take this pic anyway ...





I enjoyed the meal. Andrew liked the shake and O-rings. Our server wasn't really into the schtick but that was Ok with us. The place was swamped busy!
