    **I need opinions, not opionons LOL. Apparently I can't spell today- please forgive me.


    Hi all! I haven't posted in about 2 years.... moved, had a baby- lots has gone on, but we are FINALLY going to the World when DH gets back from Iraq.

    I am being very picky with my ADR's I guess, and can't make up my mind. Any help/opinions would be greatly appreciated-Thanks!

    We are on the regular DP (paying oop for it).

    Sunday 1/8- Check in day, Giordano's pizza off property for dinner- a DH must. Chip n Dale campfire thing at Ft. Wilderness if it's going on.

    Monday 1/9- 1900 PF for dinner (booked this one based on recommendations from this board- opinion on changing it to Chef Mickey's? We had Chef Mickey's for dinner last trip, never been to 1900 PF)

    Tuesday 1/10- Coral Reef for Dinner; again booked based on recommendations from here. Wanted Sc-fi but no early enough bookings. I am thinking about changing this one to Garden Grill or Biergarten based on others from here.... is the show/music whatever it is in Biergarten good? We had CS from here last trip and I remember it being OK.- any opinions either way?

    Wednesday 1/11- This is going to be our "date night". We are going to hire a babysitter and go out for our 10th Anniversary (actually a week before we come down). This is where I am most torn :confused:

    I first had Narcoossee's, then changed it based on reviews to Flying Fish (what it's at now). We will be paying OOP for this meal, so dining plan or no is of no consequence other than we don't want to have to go somewhere DH would have to wear a tie lol. I was thinking about Fulton's Crab House in Downtown Disney, but read mixed reviews. So, anyone have any reviews on Fulton's or any other option? This will be our first night out without the kids in over a year :eek:

    Thursday 1/12- Crystal Palace for breakfast- can't help myself. I heard good things from my SIL who went last time, and I want the empty view of Mainstreet lol. We also have Tony's Town Square for dinner this evening. I would be open to changing Tony's to elsewhere I think.

    Friday 1/13- Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for Dinner. I chose this one because it sounded good. Anyone have opinions of this one?

    Saturday 1/14- O'hana for breakfast. This is our only repeat meal from last trip. The kids had a blast and I want our last Disney meal to be a good one.

    Again thanks for the help!!!!

    We'll be there at the same time. Our trip is from 1/5-1/11!

    I love this breakfast! I just love character meals that are served family style. Plus the yummy juice and the bread! I wish we were going here in January

    Thanks for the input! I have changed a couple of ADR's around- but right at this second I couldn't tell you which ones.... It's been a long evening of child wrangling here.

    I am working on a pre-trip report though, and putting in a mini report from last trip..... I'll finalize :rotfl: my ADR's before then. (that means I'll only change one or two more before we go LOL.)

    I know though after reading a recent TR from someone and seeing pictures of the food at Coral Reef, I changed it.

    Believe it or not from the date night restaurants I am NOT a big seafood person, but DH likes fish- he won't eat lobster or crab though. Says there is no point in eating something you have to put butter on to make it taste good- this from the man who puts ketchup on almost everything including my yummy home made pot roast:headache:.

    The main seafood I eat is King or snow crab (living in AK spoiled me for it), Halibut and sometimes talapia if it's cooked right. I don't like a strong fish taste. I will eat scallops and mussels and such on occasion though. I picked Flying Fish because I have read several good reviews of the steak and I want to go to the boardwalk... I've heard good things about it but we never made it last trip.

    Again thanks for the input! I appreciate it.

    The steak at Flying Fish IS good :) I know from experience! I just had it a couple weeks ago and it was one of the better ones (I don't eat fish or seafood at all, nor chicken, nor pork, etc). The boardwalk area, while I thought it wouldn't be for me, was really nice to meander around.

    Even caught this nice scene there that night (erm, by night, I mean evening. My ADR was 5:30 when they opened, so this was at about 7pm in late September).

    So, from me, as a non-fish eater at all. FF gets a thumbs up :)
