    Hello all!

    Welcome to my second dining review. I did one for our trip in 2009 where we spent 14 days eating our way around Disney.

    We were at WDW in September 2010 with the free dining plan. We ate a lot of good food and we ate a lot just to put it simply! :rotfl:

    Here's the cast:

    Me - 34 years old

    I'm the Disney fanatic. I love everything about Disney, ever since our first trip in September 2008. I am also the planer of the group and I just love it. I make all the reservations and I take care of the itinerary as well.

    JF - 31 years old

    My BF of 6 years. He loves Disney, but he's not as crazy as I am. ;) He loves that I take care of everything and he just follows along.

    On this trip we also had my mom and my aunt with us as well. This was their 2nd trip.

    Here's the list:

    Grand Floridian Cafe
    Pop Century Food Court
    Sunshine Seasons
    Rose & Crown Restaurant & Pub
    Captain Cooks
    Pecos Bill
    Crystal Palace
    Wolfgang Puck Express
    Pizzafari
    Yak & Yeti Restaurant
    Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater
    Cape May Breakfast
    Le Cellier
    Leaning Palms
    50's PrimeTime Cafe
    Cosmic Rays
    Boma
    Olivia's
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Starring Rolls Cafe
    Liberty Tree Tavern
    Earl of Sandwich
    Kona
    Sunshine Seasons
    Pop Century Food Court

    There are a few missing because of our other days we were not at Disney. We also went to Sea World, Universal Studios, the Orlando Outlet and the Florida Mall.

    So let's get this started. :banana:

    Excellent! Lots of places. I would love to hear about Universal/IOA. I can't find much info on the restaurants there and we're spending 3-4 days in May.

    We arrived at the Pop Century Resort in the afternoon. We had reservations at the Grand Floridian Cafe that evening. The previous year, me and my BF ate there during our vacation and we really loved it. It was a must do again on the trip, and boy it did not desappoint. :lovestruc

    The atmosphere is great, the service is fantastic and the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is really beautiful. One of my favorite resorts.

    Food Century Food Court always as some good food options. We ate here for breakfast a couple of mornings, and it was always really good hot food. A great start to any day in the parks.

    Overall good food that we enjoy. For a quick meal-breakfast we give this a 4/5. Good fast food!

    Love the reviews so far....I was just asking my DH if he would want to try GF Cafe during our Oct trip. I'm definitely showing him your pics and review! That type of food is right up his alley.
