    Hello everyone and welcome to my DxDDP dining report. First, a little bit about your guide on this culinary tour through the most magical place on earth and the rest of the cast of characters. Let me start by saying I am soooooooooooo not a message board person, that is except for the DIS. I have enjoyed all of your reviews and have gotten so much valuable information here that I decided to return the favor. This is my first attempt at writing a dining report, so please be gentle.

    I am 35 years old and the proud father of two beautiful twin girls. I am a pretty adventurous eater and I love to try new foods. I enjoy appetizers and also love a good breakfast.

    DW (36) aka LJCrochet is a chocoholic, pure and simple. If it were up to her, she'd skip straight to desert (after some bread and butter, of course). Though not an adventurous eater, she has become much more daring over the years.

    DD1 (4) who we'll call Ariel takes after her Mommy when it comes to food. She could live on bread and chocolate.

    DD2 (4) referred to herein as Aurora has become quite a carnivore and has a new found appreciation for ribs. She's looking forward to Whispering Canyon and Hoop de Doo Review.

    Grandma (my Mom) will be joining us on this trip, let's call her Mrs. Potts. She's been weight watchers for a while now and has been doing quite well. She is a bit apprehensive about the DxDDP and is most looking forward to the healthy choices that Disney has to offer. Today's sustainable fish perhaps?

    So, watch your head and step, and take small children by the hand as you prepare to have your senses stimulated by our taste of the cuisine of WDW with lots of pictures (hopefully). Our bags are packed (almost) and we'll soon be off to the World.

    As I previously mentioned, I love a good breakfast and appetizers and DW loves desert. This is a recipe for a lot of TS meals and the DDP, just won't do. We have TIW and we were not planning on doing any of the dining plans, but after mapping out our ADRs, and crunching the numbers, we decided to add the DxDDP, as it will be cheaper and much more convenient than just relying on TIW. Before, I get flamed, I know it's not exactly apples to apples, as we'd probably not order apps and deserts for each person if we were paying OOP, but we know we'll have fun with the DxDDP.

    DW and I are DVC members and we consider ourselves to be Disney veterans, but after looking over the list of Disney restaurants, I discovered that there were more than 50 places we haven't tried yet:eek: So our goal for this trip (and next) is to try as many new places as possible while hitting a few of our faves.

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
    And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents - your dinner (I mean our ADRs):

    Day 1:
    Sanaa - Lunch (new to us)
    Whispering Canyon - Dinner (old fave)

    Day 2:
    Boma - Breakfast (new to us for breakfast)
    Jiko - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 3:
    Norway - Breakfast (old fave)
    Biergarten - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 4:
    Cape May Cafe - Breakfast (new to us)
    Sci Fi - Lunch (new to us)
    Tutto Italia - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 5:
    Crystal Palace - Breakfast (old fave)
    Tusker House / Nemo Show - Lunch (new to us for lunch)
    Narcoosee's - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 6:
    CRT - Breakfast (old fave)
    Le Cellier - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 7:
    'Ohana - Breakfast (old fave)
    Hoop de Doo - Dinner (new to us)

    Day 8:
    Kona Cafe - Breakfast (new to us)
    Chefs de France - Lunch (new to us)
    'Ohana - Dinenr (old fave)

    Day 9:
    Chef Mickey's - Breakfast (last day tradition)

    That sounds like a whole lot of eating. popcorn:: I can't wait to hear how it goes. Will you be updated while at Disney, or will we have to wait until you get home? Did you remember to pack the pants with elastic waist so you have something to wear home by day 9? :lmao: You guys will have to come home and do a whole bunch of :yay: (looks like jumping jacks to me), to get back in shape for round number 2 in October.

    Welcome aboard. :thumbsup2

    I'm considering doing a live report, but I don't know if they'll be time between meals.:rotfl2:

    My plan is to consume so many calories on this trip that I won't have to eat again until October.:rotfl:

    Welcome, welcome.

    Thanks, I thought it was appropriate.

    Wow, MickyNicki's here. I'm a big fan of your reports.

    Thanks. We may even have time for some rides and shows.:lmao:

    It's quite a noble endeavor.

    Welcome aboard.

    I think it's gonna be about pace. Very small bites.:rotfl2: And I'll try not to "eat my money's worth" at the buffets.

    Welcome.

    We'll be sure to take lots of pictures

    I'm still trying to figure out the amount of calories in food porn and if you lose or gain by oogling the pics.
