Hi there and welcome! Im happy to share the latest dining adventures or misadventures as the case may be for our latest WDW trip which included 11.5 days of Disney dining from April 28th through May 9th. From the title you can tell that my favorite MK dessert didnt happen this trip. Its not the end of the world but Ill maintain my regrets until I can rectify this next trip. Im Brenda, otherwise known as Emmysmommy here. This is my 7th Dining Review if you include my contributions to Barbs live dining thread for our December 2013 trip. My full time dining partner this trip was my husband Michael with a few DISers joining for most meals namely, Paula (Smile4stamps Here's the link to Paula's DR/TR) and her DH Hunter, Barb (Jabead here's the link to Barb's DR), and Beth (Couchy) also joined us for several meals as she arrived for a long weekend while we were there. There were some other meals shared with other DISers as well. Ill share those surprise guests along the way. We were also excited that our middle son and his girlfriend were able to meet up with us for a night so they had a dinner and breakfast with us as well. Paula and Hunter Barb with Michael & Brenda Beth with Paula, Hunter, Michael and Brenda Noticeable absent this trip, and for the first time since weve been coming to WDW, was Emmy. She had already taken a break from school for our December trip so being absent nearly 2 weeks this close to the end of school wouldnt have worked for her school responsibilities. She is part of the yearbook team which means that her editorial deadlines wouldnt allow her to ditch her group for this trip. Since this was booked as a slightly belated 50th birthday trip with my DH, Michael, it worked out well in the end. This trip had many of the meals co-planned with Paula since her trip was already booked by the time I joined in. I was glad to add a few new places to our dining line-up in addition to many favorites. We had a few changes once we arrived at WDW, actually omitting a few meals. In the end, we didnt go hungry by any means.

Therefore, it made sense that we HAD to book a return trip to take advantage of the 20% discount for food and beverages (including alcohol) for many TS locations in WDW. (And a few counter service locations as well.) So with that, lets see what was awesome, which favorites continued to delight, and what meals were better left skipped. Thanks for joining this edition of my dining review.
