    9/10/2008
    after we checked in I was starving so we went to claim our refillable mugs (which we used once by the way!) and so i could use a snack credit (we had 28 to use!) so I got some peanut m & m's I don't remember exactly how much they were, but they were king size so I will say $2.50 woo hoo! and so it begins...:thumbsup2

    Narcoossees Dinner

    We love this place and our plan was to eat here the first and last night. start and end with a bang right? we were starving and ready for some "disney food" when we got there. We were seated by the window but we were RIGHT behind the check in podium. I was so happy to be in disney, and to have gotten our fabulous room upgade that I didn't care!


    they brought out our drinks (sprite for both) and that fabulous bread and butter that i love.
    For appetizers we ordered the fried shrimp and the crab cakes, both for Bobby :) I dont eat seafood so he got them both. but I didnt care I was more concered with my dessert haha. bobby ate up every bite of both and thought they were great as usual.

    [​IMG]

    for our entree's bobby of course, ordered the lobster and I of course got the filet. of course, they were both fabulous. whatever kind of sauce they put on my steak is just so good.

    For dessert we ordered of course the almond crusted cheesecake and we also got these different flavors of gelato.

    [​IMG]

    the cheesecake was divine, and it had been 9 long months since i had tasted it and it tasted exactly how I remember it! the gelato had some good flavors and a couple were just ok, but it was very refreshing and we ate all of that, too!

    2 sprites: i think last time i decided on 2.39 a piece so I wil just go with that for now: $4.78
    Fried shrimp: $15.00
    crab cakes: $13.00
    lobster: $59.00
    filet: $39.00
    cheesecake: $8.00
    sorbet: $7.00

    DDP: 4 credits total
    TOTAL AMOUNT: $145.78 plus 6.5% tax = $155.25
    **this amount does not inclue tip. I will not be including the tip amounts b/c 1.)i dont remember what we gave everytime 2.) we tip based on performance of the server, so ti was differnt everytime. so if you would like to figure up an OOP amount for tips just take each meal and add in somewhere between 11 and 17% and you will get a rough estimate of tip money you will need to bring.

    we of course love this place and are going back in may with my parents for their anniversary dinner! :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

    Hi Heather. Yummmm Narcoosee's looks so good! I stayed at the GF three times and my family never went there. We are staying at BWI this time to be closer to Epcot, but I will miss the GF! Looking forward to more reviews!

    I am so in for this report. You went to so many restaurants that we have never been to. I can't wait to hear all about them and see good food porn.:thumbsup2 Was the service good this meal at Narcossee's? You didn't mention that.
    Looking forward to more reviews.

    oh I dont know if I could stay at an EPCOT area resort, I would miss the monorail too much! haha. good luck!

    I knew i was forgetting soemthing! the service wasn't bad but wasn't great. it was just "normal" and we expect more from disney, so we were a little disapointed. we have always had fabulous service here, so it was weird. maybe someone was just having an off day.

    :goodvibes
