    We are at Pop but have a car or disney bus. Have no real plans for the day. Maybe swim,, mini golf, or DisneyQuest....or maybe not. Lol. We really have no plans for this day. Can be lunch or dinner. Honestly we are very flexible and open!

    I vote for Ragland Road in DTD. You are two adults, it has a pub like feel and you can eat outside and people watch while relaxing. It is always one of our last meals while in DIsney. Also, you can pick up any last minute purchases after you eat :) Have fun!

    My choice would be Kona Cafe at the Poly.
    You can check out the resort which is gorgeous.
    If you decide to do dinner, after you linger a bit- check out Wishes from the beach.

    Raglan Road or Boma.
    Boma is a buffet but has options you won't find anywhere esle.
    Raglan Road has a large menu for a Disney restaurant and lots of very good options. The Ger's bread pudding is out of this world!

    Downtown disney because there is more to choose from resort restaurants have one theme usually. DTD has many choices in which you could change your mind.

    Raglan Road or Sanaa. Sanaa gives you the added bonus of seeing the beautiful AKV Kidani and the animals on the savannah!

    I'd go Raglan Road or Kouzina (@ the Boardwalk). RR is great for lunch or dinner- entertainment is Irish dancing in the evenings.

    I like Kouzina, with its Mediterranean flavor and eating along the Boardwalk for dinner- with the entertainment being Jellyrolls, the dueling piano bar (adults only).

    Boma (yummy buffet at AKL)...or Beaches and Cream (at Beach Club and if you feel like sandwiches and ice cream..they don't take ADRs, just walk ins)....or Whispering Canyon (at Wilderness Lodge and all you can eat skillet is nice comfort food and bottomless milkshakes).

    Thanks everybody!! This is a harder decision than I expected! Because of the FD promo we are able to stay an extra day. We decided to put it about 3 days before our check out as kinda a "down day". Gah...I didn't expect this to be that hard!!

    I'd second these suggestions (Raglan Road or Kouzzina) and also second Cape May, and then add Captain's Grille as an alternative to Cape May.
    Boma is also nice.

    Raglan Road would be my choice.
    It is a beautiful restaurant that was built in Ireland, disassembled and shipped to DTD, and reassembled.
    It has warm, friendly servers and excellent food. The choices on the menu are more varied than most Disney restaurants.
    There is a live Irish band in the evenings and periodic Irish Step Dancers entertain.
    It is a really fun evening.

    You've gotten great suggestions...

    just a thought: is there a resort you haven't been to? I love just visiting the other resorts and some of them are just spectacular. If you haven't been to one, maybe get an ADR there.

    See this is my problem. I love to check out new resorts....but we hit several of them during our trips each time. So far we have been to:
    Boma
    Cape May - Breakfast and Dinner
    Chef Mickey - dinner
    Maya Grill
    Trails End Restaurant
    1900 Park Fare - breakfast and dinner
    Kona Cafe - breakfast (maybe dinner here??)
    Ohana
    Whispering Canyon
    Captains Grill

    At DTD:
    Cap'n Jack's
    Ragland Rd
    House of Blues
    Wolfgang Puck

    We have a Rainforest Cafe here so that isn't a 'treat' and hubby ate at T-Rex when he went down a day early to prep from his proposal.

    We aren't opposed to going back to some of those but part of me wants to try something new!! :rotfl: That's one of the problems with Disney...I want to try something new so I keep going back.....yeah lets blame it on that!!
