    Ok, so on with my dining reviews (sorry I was neglecting it trying to start my Trip Report). We were on the Dining plan.

    On our first day 8/24/07 we arrived , checked in and head to the Pepper Market.

    I had the steak fajita (I love their fajitas) but the chicken I think would have been a better choice. I was my first time ordering the steak version and the steak was tough and hard to eat in a fajita. Overall though it was still enjoyable and I split it easily with DH (He ate 2, I ate 1 and then ate the rest without the wrap).

    My son had the kids cheese pizza with cookie, orange slice and drink. He ate every bite of his pizza.

    DStepD had the chinese plate special. She didn't like her chicken at ALL. She also complained the the sauce they put on the noodles tasted funny. I tried it and it was just "ok" but I guess not what she is used to from home.

    That evening we had ADR's @ Chef Mickey's.

    I don't have any photos here except a few desserts but we all enjoyed our meals. I really like salmon here and the salad choices are pretty average but still tasty.

    8/25/07

    Day 2 we skipped breakfast and hung by the pool. Early lunch @ the Pepper Market before heading to the Studios.

    Lunch was pasta for both Ashley and I . I got the penne with mushroom sauce and she got penne with marinara. Both with breadsticks. Dessert I got Chocolate croissant and Ashley got a cookie. Those cookies are HUGE. We both liked our pasta but tried not to overeat as we had Mama Melrose that night and were afraid we'd end up ordering pasta again.

    TC got the rib eye steak and he enjoyed it as usual (he ate it a few times our last trip). Trae got the kids pizza...AGAIN lol

    I can't find their pics....


    Goofy's
    Both kids had pretzel rods dipped in chocolate and then in Oreo cookie. They REALLY liked these as a midday snack---great use of a snack credit as you get 3 rods ;)

    MAMA Melrose

    We decided to try this on the F! package and though it was just "ok" I think I may try it again in the future. Our waitress was great and very attentive.
    ME
    App: Artisan Bread Didn't like. I thought the bread tasted stale and I wasn't fond of the dips.
    [​IMG]
    Meal: Chicken Flatbread LOVED this.
    [​IMG]
    Dessert: Tiramisu pretty good...Kind of a dry tiramisu---not what I am used to.
    [​IMG]

    TC
    App: Calamari We all picked at this and it was very good.
    [​IMG]
    Meal: Sirlion TASTED LIKE PLASTIC! It was almost inedible. TC actually forced himself to eat it and didn't complain---how he did I have no clue.
    [​IMG]
    Dessert: Tiramisu AND Espresso (she let him get both on the DDP) Spoiled boy..he loved having both of these ;)

    Ashley
    App: Mozzarella and Tomato Pretty average..I love tomato and mozzarella.
    [​IMG]
    Meal: Spaghetti Diavolo She picked at it and said it was ok, but wasn't what she expected. She wanted more heat to the "spicy sauce".
    [​IMG]
    Dessert: Chocolate gelato. Ate a few bites but said it tasted like regular chocolate ice cream.
    [​IMG]

    Trae
    App: Salad
    Meal: kids cheese pizza (see a trend yet?)
    [​IMG]
    hmmm..can't find what he got for dessert---Ice cream I think? (I didn't note as much of his stuff as he was pretty consistant with the same meals)

    Trae spilled his chocolate milk all over the table and within seconds 2 waiters were helping us clean it.

    Unfortunately this portion won't have any food pics..It was a trying morning and we originally had ADR's @ 'Ohana for breakfast but had to cancel last minute from my cell. We arrived to check into POR for free dining (moving from CSR) and were greeted by 1.5 hour wait. The line was INSANE!

    So we skipped breakfast finally got checked in, headed to the room and made it to the Studios around 10. Lunch was Pizzafari and I really enjoyed it. I was SO bummed b4 the trip that Tusker House would be closed (one of my fave CS's) but I couldn't have been happier with my backup.

    Trae only wanted the pizza and it isn't on the kids menu so daddy ordered that and split it with him---TC ordered the kids cheese quesadillas for Trae and ate them himself (those were kinda yuck) I had the Italian sandwich, which I craved a few more times during the week and Ashley had the chicken Parm which TC wish he had been able to get.

    Up next is Le Chef's de France WITH PICS :)

    yes it does. But our CM last year said they will allow the child to order that, so that's what we did, we got 3 "adult" meals there instead of 2 and 2. But it's not on the menu, so if you don't know to ask or the CM doesn't say anything....

    HTH
