Where do you most look forward to eating.....

On your first night in Orlando? I'm trying to decide but there's sooo much choice!

Any thoughts???

Thanx, Audrey

We dont usually have anything more than a snack having eaten on the plane. This time we are thinking of heading down to Downtown Disney for a sandwich at the Earl of Sandwich.

Whenever we go to the States, we look forward to an early meal at Denny's.

I know that it is not upmarket, but to us it is part of being in the US and also illustrates just what Little Chef should have been.

Having had breakfast at the Clubhouse, lunch and a snack on the aircraft, we just have a drink and maybe an ice cream, fruit or bag of crisps - anything else would be too much for us in one day.

As you tend to arrive late afternoon with UK flights we like to go to DTD and usually end up in the Rainforest Cafe -which we love.

One place I totally recommend and always go when we go to Disney is Crystal Palace in Disney - the food is really good whether you do lunch or dinner. I would recommend going here some point during your holiday. Bonus is you see Winnie and friends!

Next August we are staying at the Hyatt Airport hotel, so once our son Joshua has had something to eat and is fast asleep I will probably have chik-fil-a and an ice cold coke.

Followed later hopefully by a couple of beers at the bar.

My wife will probably have pizza.

We are normally in a villa from the first night onwards, so would hope to go to Publix and stock up - highly unlikely we would eat out although we could get something to bring back.
First night usually pretty tired though.

We actually quite like KFC - the potato wedges are very nice...the only problem is the list of what is available is very different from the UK, it once cost me $30 , we could have eaten for a week on what I took home - don't think I explained my order very well, but it was a drive-thru and it got a bit confusing..

Nothing fancy, it has become a family tradition to go to Pizza Hut on the first evening. Can't even remember why but would not change it now.

Talking

We will be going to Epcot on our first night, so will probably go to a counter service restaurant for our first burger of the holiday

Something basic and simple I would expect. After the obligitory Supermarket visit I think it may be onto the 192 for something and settle into the villa and try the Hot Tub and beer supplies. I will leave my Roma rack from Tony Roma's until at least the second night.

We have a Denny's right next door to Summer Bay so we normally go there, shame I don't really like the food! My favourite eateries are Golden Corral, Bennigans and Ponderosa. Gah, I feel hungry now!!!

On our arrival day, we normally grab something at the hotel (we normally stay on site) as we are too tired to go anywhere.

On 1st full day, we normally go to Animal Kingdom, so we like to eat at the Rainforest Cafe.

We usually go to MGM Studios after we've checked in, so it'll be chicken strips or pizza from Pizza Planet - yummy !!
