    This is my DH, Greg, and I, Rachael. All you really need to know is that we like to eat, okay maybe LOVE is a better word. :lmao: Also, that we “tackled” the DxDP for our honeymoon in June and even we thought it to be too much food! :sick: We did NOT purchase the DDP, which looking back was definitely a mistake. Oh well, live and learn.


    THE FOOD


    Day One:
    End Zone Food Court: Dinner

    Rating System:

    My favorite Disney Movie is Beauty & The Beast and I thought it only fitting that I use these images:


    5/5 “I Love the Food So Much, I could get out of my seat and dance around with DH.”
    [​IMG]

    4/5 “I could/will definitely eat this again!”
    [​IMG]

    3/5 “Bored. It was okay but definitely not a taste sensation.”
    [​IMG]

    2/5 “I am really not happy with this food right now.” (Said through clenched teeth.)
    [​IMG]

    1/5 “Worst. Meal. Ever.” (It takes A LOT for me to say this about my food, so if I do give this rating, it was B-A-D!)

    I have tried shrimp numerous times because it often looks delicious, but it's not. I tried lobster and it was tender and edible but only drenched in butter. I just cannot get past the texture. That and when I was little my stepmother would force me to eat fish that my grandpa caught on his fishing trips and i would count the bones I ate. Gross! :sick: Not the best at getting those out!

    Thanks! That picture was taken on our honeymoon at the Sandals in the Bahamas. So beautiful, I can't wait to return!

    OK, so I am a picky eater unless it's fried or sweet. Well, even some sweet stuff. My family is also big eaters so I looked for a lot of buffets to get more bang for our buck. I am hoping it means my son will want less snacks. We are using the dining plan so I'm hoping to use the snacks and/or desserts to get muffins etc for breakfast. We will be there the day after Christmas to 1/2. We have ADRs at Hollywood and Vine (to take advantage of the Fantasmic package), Liberty Tree Tavern (loved it the last time we went), Crystal Palace, Whispering Canyon, and Rainforest Cafe. Although the food isn't phenomanal, we are also doing the Hoop-de-doo Review. Anyone ever eaten at any of these?

    I have been to Crystal Palace, for dinner and I thought it was just okay. A lot of the food didn't appeal to me and many of the "hot" foods were lukewarm. However, after joining DIS, I really would like to try breakfast there! I have also been to RFC, the one at Animal Kingdom, it was pretty good. We are there twice on a trip with my family because we couldn't get ADR's anywhere. Hope this helps! :santa:

    END ZONE FOOD COURT​


    Chicken Penne Alfredo

    The chicken was all-white meat and bordering dry. The breading around the chicken was nice but a bit on the crunchy side (it was a little difficult to cut with a plastic butter knife). The noodles were cooked “fresh”. They semi-cook a large amount of noodles and then when you order your meal they finish cooking them. (I’m guessing to keep them from getting “gummy” and sticking together.) They did not give me enough alfredo sauce and I wasn’t about to ask for more, as it would have cost an extra $1.00. I am definitely a sauce person, so this definitely was not an ideal situation. The temperature of my food was decent. There was probably about 3 minutes or so between them plating my food and me sitting down and it was already bordering the not warm enough side. (I am a stickler for wanting my pasta to be HOT!)

    [​IMG]

    My meal was served with a salad that they put “dressing” on. If you could consider what they put on dressing, it was an oil and vinegar mixture, heavy on the oil. There were no spices at all. It immediately made the lettuce soggy. I attempted to put some ranch dressing on it, but it was still inedible.

    [​IMG]

    Overall, I would rank this meal as a “3”. I would get it again because I am a sucker for pasta (especially with cream sauces) and I really enjoyed the chicken.

    [​IMG]

    DH ordered a Double Cheeseburger with Fries.

    First off, the bun was soggy. Yes, it was one of the whole wheat buns. That is just how much grease there was served with the burger. The bacon was pretty much plastic. Also, when you lifted the burger up to eat it, you could see a pile of grease that had dripped off of the burgers. DH said he enjoyed the fries, they were warm and crispy, so no complaints there.

    [​IMG]

    He rated this a “3”. I’m sure the next time he would order it without bacon and hope that the amount of grease was just a one time occurrence.

    [​IMG]

    I feel like our overall AVERAGE rating suits this food court food. I did not really expect more than that so I was not disappointed.
