A little background: My DH and I each have been to WDW independently years ago, and next week we leave for our first trip together as a family, with three kids. DD5, DS2 (turns 3 during trip) and DS13 months. We are not on the DDP, and I have spent a lot of time thinking about our meals. We haven't ever eaten any of these meals, so I'm going with what sounded good and also opinions here, although I realize that there never seems to be 100% agreement on any restaurant. With that said, I have probably made too many ADRs, given our budget. We will have access to a kitchen and plan to eat breakfast in the room and do some type of QS or bring our own meals for others. Here are the ADRs we have: Akershus (dinner) 'Ohana (dinner) Crystal Palace (lunch) Hollywood and Vine (lunch) The Plaza (lunch) Whispering Canyon (dinner) Hoop dee Doo (dinner, of course) If you had to eliminate 3 of these based on food alone, which three would you eliminate? If I said to not just consider food but the entire experience, including price (remember, we're not on DDP), would your list change? I will say that it is unlikely I am going to spend any more time trying to change my ADRs and I am pretty much only focusing on either lunches or dinners, not breakfasts. And, because we have a CM room discount, we can't enroll in the DDP. One additional bit of information. My kids know princesses, Pooh characters, but not the characters at H & V. Not sure if that would impact your ratings. Thanks for your input.
