    We have just returned from 2 weeks at WDW, as I found the reviews here so helpful I thought I would have a go at writing a report. I have photos for most of the meals we had but at times I forgot to take pictures, too hungry!!:lmao:

    Here are some introductions

    Me (Kathryn) - Compulsive planner (3rd trip)

    Colin (DB) - photographer (3rd trip)

    Andrew (foster brother ) has learning difficulties, 11 years old (2nd trip)

    We were on the DDP and staying at All Star Music.

    Wednesday 11th July

    We had an early breakfast at Crystal Palace. The food was good especially the puffed french toast, breakfast lasagna and the breakfast pizza. Colin loves the bacon in American restaurants I don't! Its just too crispy! The character interaction was very good, especially Tigger. I'm glad we had an early ADR as when we were leaving there were big ques at the buffet.

    Sorry no photos, I'm making the excuse that this was the first meal we had and I was not used to taking photos! Thats my story and I'm sticking to it!:rotfl:

    As a snack Andrew and I had Dole Whip Floats and Colin had softserve vanilla, well he had that and then finished off my Dole Whip Float!!:rolleyes:
    These were great and so refreshing!

    We ate lunch back at All Star Music, we were a bit tired (jet lag and still not being used to the heat! We are from Scotland so the temperature is a huge change!)

    Kathryn - Cheeseburger
    fruit bowl (kept for breakfast the next day)
    Colin - Chicken Strips
    Chocolate Cake
    Andrew - Chicken Strips
    Chocolate Cake

    Food was good but the service was very slow and they could not get the order right at all!

    We went to DTD and to Goofy's Candy Company. We found the best use for our snacks (thanks to the DIS!) Here are our creations!

    [​IMG]

    Kathryn - Marshmallows dipped in milk chocolate, sprinkles and drizzled with white chocolate.

    [​IMG]

    Colin - Marhsmallows dipped in milk chocolate, rolled in crushed oreas and drizzled with white chocolate.

    [​IMG]

    Andrew - Chocolate Cookie dipped in white chocolate, rolled in m&ms and drizzled with caramel.

    It took us two days to finish these, thank goodness for the fridge in our room (we were in the family suites). They were great snacks!!!

    We were not really that hungry, jet lag was kicking in! So we shared a cheese pizza for dinner and got an apple and cinnamon muffin which Andrew ate for breakfast the following day!

    We found it really easy to locate snacks in the foodcourt as they were all clearly labelled with the dining plan symbol, except the ice cream! We also noticed the symbol in the parks.

    Kona Cafe Lunch and Pinnochio's

    Thursday 12th July

    We ate breakfast in our room before heading to MGM.

    For a snack we had some frozen lemonade, really nice! It was from a stall near Indianna Jones. We each got one but we probably could have just shared one between the three of us!

    [​IMG]

    For lunch we headed to Kona Cafe at the Polynesian. I had been looking forward to this meal but I was a bit disappointed with the service we recieved. However, the food was lovely and I probably would go back, although I don't know if I could convince Colin.

    Here is Andrew waiting to go for lunch.

    [​IMG]

    Anyway onto the food!

    Kathryn

    Sticky Wings (these were great, messy but tasted lovely and quite sweet).
    [​IMG]

    Island Chicken Sandwich (this was good but I didn't really like the sweet potato chips)

    [​IMG]

    Kona Cone (with vanilla ice cream only, this was the best part of the meal!!!)

    Colin

    Chicken Noodle Soup (Colin said it was nice)

    [​IMG]

    Angus Chuck Kahuna Burger (with cheese and nothing else! Colin is quite a fussy eater!)

    [​IMG]

    Kilauea Torte (this was good and I stole a bit to taste it!)

    [​IMG]

    Andrew

    Pot Stickers (Andrew liked these and I swapped him some sticky wings for a taste. These were really good)
    Sorry about the picture, we had already had a quick taste before I remembered to take the photo!

    [​IMG]

    Barbecued Pork Sandwich (looked good but didn't get to taste it!! Andrew enjoyed it)

    [​IMG]

    Kona Cone

    [​IMG]

    Oops, nearly forgot we were able to get smoothies as our drink here.

    [​IMG]

    Stawberry and banana

    [​IMG]

    Orange and passion fruit.

    I really liked the strawberry one!


    We had dinner at Pinocchio Village Haus. We got so much food here! We really couldn't finish it all.

    Andrew and I shared the Turkey Panini and had stawberry cheesecake for dessert. The panini was good and we kept the chips for later. However, I really enjoyed the figaro fries! We took the cheesecake back to the resort but it was never eaten!

    [​IMG]

    1/2 the panini

    [​IMG]

    Colin had chicken strips and a chocolate cake, he never at the cake either and enjoyed the chicken strips!

    I am interested in what you have to say about LeCellier -- we have ADR there in October - we are looking forward to that since we have never had a meal there.
