Hi! I'm Marla... and i had a problem.. in disney.. with ice cream. At least that's the phrase my husband used when i commented about how much ice cream i had been eating! I equated it to falling off the wagon (as we had be diligently eating healthy/dieting for months up until disney) and he chimed in and claimed it was more like falling off the ice cream truck! but it's cool cause we were in DISNEY!!!! Little background, i'm a long time DisBoards lurker.. i chime in occasionally but i just like to hang around and read. I've been to disney my entire life.. from year 1 to now year 25 (almost 26 .. )! My family went every year growing up and then 7 years ago - i introduced my now husband, Dan, to disney.. and since then he has gotten the Disney bug.. which works for me! We just got married in November 11.11.11 and we honeymooned in Disneyland (1week) and then Punta Cana (2nd week).. you would think after those vacations we would be done for a while.. but no, around Februrary we got itching to head back to the world.. so we booked our 13 night stay at Pop and we luckily had a pin attached to Dan's name for Free QS dining.. we upgraded to DDP and started our countdown! I just finished my Student Teaching for my Masters in Elem. Ed.. and Dan is a graphic designer for a NJ newspaper.. did i mention were from NJ! .. and we DROVE down.. actually we drive to Disney World all the time.. it may seem strange but we actually like to drive down! all 18 hours of quality time in a car! plus i much prefer to rely on our own car for transportation. Anyway, back to the food.. we love it! who doesn't, so we made a ridiculous amount a reservations.. i believe we started out with 15 TS... switched some.. canceled some last minute.. but over all we were pretty happy with our selections.. tried a couple new places and a lot of old favorites! Dan is also on the Dis... we had some interesting discussions on how i would write this report.. he is on the edge of his seat waiting to see what i write.. especially over one piece of chocolate cake which we just could not see eye to eye on.. LOL i'm sure he will be commenting on how i don't know what i'm talking about hahaha oh and one more somewhat key factor to our eating around Disney.. dan eats meat.. i don't.. i'm a pescetarian... if you've never heard of it it means that i will eat fish (i like to say, "no land animals" to be clearer).. perhaps one day i will get rid of that as well. but for this report, just though you all should know! oh and hopefully by the end of this i will have answered the age old question.. is the DDP worth it.. i have never really cared if it is.. i just love it for how easy it is .... even though we were scrambling the last few days with 12 snacks left! hahah i still have some mickey cake pops in the fridge! (we got back early sunday morning - so i'm sure they are fine! lol) omgoodness.. i keep starting to type the line up and i remember more things to say...if you haven't figured it out already - i talk.. a lot. but we left for our drive on June 9th, the day after Dan's birthday (so you know i had already let disney know the birthday boy was on his way!) arrived at Pop on Jun 10th and left for NJ on the 23rd! OH one more thing.. we went to UNIVERSAL 2 days.. so i will also include dining reports for there as well! Here i am, with my least favorite Pooh Character.. lol.. don't be mad at me but i just could never really stand piglet.. and the DH and I so.. here is what you have all been waiting for.. the lineup!!

We typically like to eat first before heading to the park that way we can hit the rides right away.. but i'm thinking for the next trip we may need to branch out a bit lol WELL! there is is... i'm exhausted from just typing all that and bolding certain things! lol we also had a ridiculous amount of snacks along the way, which will be posted along with each day! hopefully these pictures and reports will be as helpful as other's were for me!!!!!! and let me know if your reading, i'd love to hear what other's thought of these dining locations as well!
