I have to say, the free dining didnt disappoint. I had already booked our trip long before the free dining promotion which happened to start the day we arrived, so this was a really nice bonus for our trip. Athough I have to say that the free dining made a much bigger impact this year. It wasnt just the TS restaurants where they were turning away all the walk-ins. But the CS places were crazy crowded and the parks seemed a lot more crowded to me than the same time last year. I think maybe more people were aware of the free dining this year and with it starting the week before Labor Day, the parks were stuffed with everyone whose kids dont start school until after Labor Day. Seriously when were at one of the stores in DTD they were keeping a chart on the wall of where everyone was from who bought something that day. There were a few checks by most states, but then you got to NY, NJ, MA and PA and there were a ton of checks. 8/26 But on to the food. We were already well-stuffed having come off a 3 day cruise on the Wonder where the food was spectacular. From that to free dining, clearly there was some serious eating that was going to be going on, especially when one of your party is a 5 year old who eats more like a 15 year old who hasnt been fed in months. We got off the Wonder so early that we were at OKW by 8:30am. Our room wasnt ready so we headed off the to MK. Wed eaten breakfast really early so late morning we stopped for a snack and went to Mrs. Potts Cupboard. We used two snack credits and I got the brownie sundae with chocolate ice cream and Mr. B got vanilla soft serve with hot fudge. They didnt have any whipped cream but it didnt matter, this was fabulous enough as it was. I had been tempted to get a shake when I saw someone else with a scrumptious looking chocolate one, but was happy with what I got. I give mine an A and DS concurred with his and gave it an A also. Our room was ready by early afternoon so we went back to OKW to settle in and went for a swim. We were both hungry and were trying to decide between a snack or an early dinner. Since wed decided to go to DTD to see a movie starting at 6:15, we opted for early dinner. Id actually had an ADR for Olivias Café at 5:00, but we went at 4:00 instead. It was almost empty there, just a few other people so the ADR probably wouldnt have been necessary anyway, at least not for an early dinner. And at 4:00 they were still on the lunch menu. DS for his appetizer ordered the chicken soup and I got onion rings. The onion rings came with 3 dips, mango ketchup, ranch, and I think a mustard. Very good rings and DS loved the mango ketchup. The chicken noodle soup went untouched so I have no idea how it was. DS for his entrée got mickey pasta with meat sauce. The mickey pasta on the mickey plate was very cute. He ate a good bit of it so it must have been good. I got the soup/sandwich combo which was a cup of conch chowder, a turkey club sandwich and a garden salad. It was good, but nothing special. I skipped dessert since I was paying for these meals OOP, but DS got the make your own sundae with his meal. Overall Id give my meal a C+ or a B-, Mr. B gave his a B.
