    I finally have some time to sit down and write a little about our trip. I tried some new foods this trip and really liked them.

    I tried the Dole Whip Float (OMG is this good) and Creme Brulee (Yummy). I tried 4 Creme Brulee's and my favorite was from YC Galley. It was a Maple Creme Brulee and it was delicious. Coming up a close second was the Vanilla from WGP Cafe, followed by WGP Express (same as Cafe but in a deeper container so there was more custard so the ratio was a little off), and then the Banana from Kona. I usually love all things banana, but I'm not fond of it on Creme Brulee.

    Here are the places we ate at. If anyone has any questions just let me know. I'll try my best to answer.

    Mama Melrose Fantasmic Pkg.
    YC Galley Dinner
    Cape May Cafe Dinner
    Spoodles Breakfast
    WGP Cafe
    Chef Mickey's Dinner
    Hollywood and Vine Dinner
    Turf Club Bar and Grill Dinner
    Raglan Road Dinner
    Kona Cafe Dinner

    This was a new restaurant for us and we loved it. The ribs there are fantastic! The clam chowder was really good too. My kids loved it. My dh couldn't get enough of the mussels. He said they were good also.

    The desserts they had were cheesecake, oreo bon bon (this is a new favorite for me), flan, stawberry mousse, key lime tarts, and cookies. Everything I tried was really good and fresh. I tried everything but the flan. Don't care for the stuff.

    The only complaint was the lines for the buffet. They were a little confusing. They had 3 or 4 separate lines for the buffet and of course the line for the Ribs was the longest at all times. But the ribs are good so I waited, several times.

    This place is going on the list for must do's every trip. We are adding it on for our Nov. trip.

    We loved this restaurant last year but were less than impressed this time around. Our waitress was very slow and we had to ask for everything. Even getting the bread was trouble.

    Last year when we went we were served this delicous soda bread with sweet dip so we were expecting the same this time. We waited and waited until we finally asked. "Can we get some of that delicious bread you serve." And this was the reply from our server. "Oh, you want bread. Ok." I don't know if it was because we were on the dining plan or if the server was just having a bad day, but I was a little annoyed. We noticed all the other tables getting there bread basket a few minutes after sitting down, so why didn't we? We noticed a decline in service at most restaurants when using the dining plan. Very upsetting to us.

    Our appy's were Seared Scallops (very small portion for $10 IMHO), Italian Irish mac n' cheese (dd said this was very good), and seared beef salad (dh said this was good).

    Moving on to entree's. DH had the Shepard's Pie, both dd and I had the sirloin steak (pretty good and cooked to our asking), and 2 younger kids both had the Atlantic Fish.

    Desserts were ice cream for the kids, Bread and Butter Pudding for me (still my favorite dessert), dd had triple mousse dessert, and dh had the Dunbrody Kiss which I tried and was very rich and chocolately. Very good.

    So we were a little upset with RR so we took it off the list for November trip. Not because the food was bad or anything because it was very good. For service reasons.

    Thanks for the positive review of Cape May! Yea! :) We'll be trying it for the first time in Dec.. Great to hear it's a good choice!

    We don't have Raglan Road on our ADR list. I've just heard about it recently and thought I'd investigate. I am concerned with the slow service I've been reading about and the DDP. We're trying it for the first time on our upcoming trip. I think I'd have a hard time being quiet about the discrepancy in service. It would bug me to no end! Hopefully it only happens once in a blue moon. Was that your experience?

    Thank you for the reviews.

    we will be trying RR for the first in a weeks too. I am sorry that your server was ruining your rerun to RR in Nov. When we return next month, we will post our reviews too. Let's hope the service compliments the food.

    We love the Express so we decided to try the Cafe and we were not disappointed. It is a noisy place but it didn't bother us because we have 3 kids.

    Our server was excellent. She always had our glasses filled and checked on us several times during our dinner and in between courses.

    For starters I had the Chicken Quesadilla (love this at the express), dh had the chips with Magtag (very tastey), and dd 10 had the spinach and cheese dip (she didn't like it, not surprising, but the rest of us loved it and so did the 2 younger dd's).

    Our entree's were dd 10 four cheese ravioli with alfredo sauce. She loved every bite. She said that it was probably the best ravioli's she's had so far and she orders ravioli at many restaurants here at home. I had the ribs and boy were they superb. They were falling off the bone and very meaty. The Asian BBQ sauce was so good. Best ribs in Disney so far. DH had the Spicy Chicken Penne which he said was good. DD's 6 and 8 had the Tic Tac Toe Pepperoni Pizza and they ate the whole thing. It smelled very good and they said it was good too.

    For dessert the 2 younger dd's had the Make your own Sundae Palette. DD 10 had the White Choc. Cheesecake, dh had the Choc. souffle, and I had Vanilla Creme Brulee which is another favorite of mine now after tasting Creme Brulee this trip. I'm kicking myself for not tasting it sooner. The crunchy sugar topping with the creamy smooth custard works so well together.

    We will be returning here in November. Outstanding service and food. Also loved being able to look out the window and see SSR and the water. Very nice view.

    Great reviews! I would love to try Wolfgang Puck Cafe, sometime. You make it all sound so good.

    What did you think of Spoodles' breakfast? We went there several years ago, when they still had their Mediterranean breakfast platter, but haven't been back since. We'll be at the Beach Club this fall, though, and I was thinking about hitting Spoodles one morning. I'd love to hear what you thought.

    Ok, I'm not a breakfast person. I only did this because my dh wanted to have a nice breakfast the morning we checked out of the BWV and into SSR.

    We had a 9:15 ADR and there were only 2 other people in the place. I guess everyone was over at the BC Buffet with the characters.

    Our server was nice and the food was good. Nothing exciting, just regular breakfast food.

    I had the French Toast. It was nice and thick. I think it might have been challa bread. DH had the All American Breakfast which had eggs, sausage, and potatoes. Dd 10 had the pancakes which was way too much food for her. She said they were good but only ate about 1/4 of it. Dd 8 had eggs over medium with bacon from the kids menu, and dd 6 had the mini Mickey waffles with bacon from the kids menu also. Everyone else ate their breakfast and thought it was very good.

    No complaints. I'm just not a breakfast person.

    This is a new CS place for us and I loved it! :love:

    It gets very crowded but we were able to find seats after we got our food.

    I had the Turkey and Muenster on Foccacia bread. It was delicious!:cloud9: I had the Key Lime Pie for dessert and it was huge and very good. Just a water for drink.

    DH had the Grilled Salmon and he couldn't believe the quality for a CS restaurant. I can't recall what he had for dessert but I'm sure it was some kind of chocolate cake. Also had water.

    DD 10 had the Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. She liked it and it was very large. She had a brownie for dessert and water.

    DD 8 had the Mac n' Cheese and a water. No desserts on dining plan here because you get carrots or grapes or both. :confused3 She shared the brownie with older daughter because it was big.

    DD 6 had the Mini Sub and she ate every bite. She had water and shared some of my key lime pie.

    I will definitely be stopping by here again or more than once on our November trip.

    Hi! We were in your neck of the woods after our Disney trip. We went to Cape Cod for a couple of days and it is very beautiful. We stayed in West Yarmouth.

    I'll get the reviews done for you.

    We stayed at the YC last year and never tried this restaurant so I decided to add it for this trip.

    The rolls they serve you are really good. We even had a second helping on them.

    I had the Crab Cakes for starters with coleslaw. Very good and filling. For my entree I had the Seafood Penne Pasta Dish. It was ok. I thought it was a little too spicy for my taste. If I knew it was spicy I wouldn't have ordered it. I don't remember if it said spicy on the menu or not. For dessert I tried Creme Brulee. This was my first taste of this dessert and it was heavenly.:cloud9: It was a Maple flavored Creme Brulee and I loved every bite. I wish I had some right now.

    DH had the Spinach Cheese Dip which everyone shared because it was a lot. He also got the Seafood Penne and he said it was ok too. He likes spicy food so I'm not sure why he said it was ok. For dessert he had the cheesecake and ate it all so I guess it was good.

    DD 10 had the Caesar Salad to start with the Top Sirloin for her entree. She ate almost all of it. For dessert she had the Chocolate Mousse and said it was yummy.

    Both younger dd's had the chicken soup for starters, with chicken strips and the dessert kabob's which came with a Mickey straw.

    I thought that this restaurant was ok. The food was good and the service was good. No complaints.
