Just returned from a fabulous WDW trip with the fan-damily from 6/28-7/4. Here is who we are, what we ate, and what we thought! Me - 29 DH - 29 DB - 25 DB - 25 DF - 57 DM - 57 'Ohana's - 6/29 - Dinner Let me just say that from the minute we arrived for check in, we had the best dining experience our family could ever ask for. The only complaint is that we arrived at 4:40PM for our 5PM ADR and weren't seated until 5:25PM. But no matter, mom decided we all needed drinks! Drinks were on mom! My bros and DH had the Lapu Lapu. All liked it, but one bro said it burned each time he took a sip, so he doesn't know what strange reaction he had to it. I got the Back Scratcher and it was ok. I like my mixed drinks sweet and this one had a real acidic taste, but it went down none the less. Mom had a Mai Tai which she liked and Dad had a virgin Daquri which went down in about 5 min. A man played the guitar and sang, which thrilled my parents. Then we were seated...with a good view of the castle!!! The won-ton chips are not my favorite but they helped to soak up the alcohol that we were all comsuming on empty stomachs. Our waiter quickly followed with the peel and eat shrimp, honey wings, and salad. So far, my bros and rents were VERY satisfied! My one bro just had a taste of everything because he was excited for the meat. Then came the meats, potatos, and stirfry. I must say that although the meats have been tasty each time we've visited, they tasted particularly fresh and juicy this time...or maybe it was the Back Scratcher talking! I was looking forward to the potatos, which went down so smoothly!! My mouth is watering even now! Everyone filled up on meat and a second dish of potatos. During this course, Lapoua (SP?) the lady who does the kids entertainment, began wishing everyone a happy birthday who was there to celebrate. Then she did the coconut races with the kiddos. Next, she got ready to do the limbo and asked my DH and one bro to be the pole holders because their "hang ten" sign was so authentic!!! We got some great video of them making one loop around the restaraunt shaking the morracas (sp?) to get people to join the limbo line and then actually helping with the limbo. It was priceless! For helping out they each got a delicious vanilla cupcake with the freshest whipped vanilla frosting I've ever tasted...DH let me have ONE bite. After the entertainment, we were served our bread pudding, ice cream, and vanilla sauce. I was glad we had the break for the entertainment because again we needed the waiter to bring two bowls for our table because it was soooooo good! My whole family loved it! Dad was even just eating spoon fulls of the vanilla sauce!! My mom was so impressed with the whole experience that she even paid for all of us....AMAZING! What a true treat and special family moment we'll have forever. They all talked about it the rest of the trip and couldn't figure out how I knew to go and eat there....hmmmm, can you say Disboards???!!! Everyone in my family gave it a A++++++++++ Biergarten in Germany - 6/30 - lunch I planned this lunch on this day because it was our only full EPCOT day. I maybe should have planned it for another day or later (we ate at noon) because we were all still high and stuffed off of the wonder that was 'Ohana's from the night before. But none the less, we had to eat some time! We were seated with a nice couple from New Jersey who were also teachers like most of my family is. We had a great conversation with them and it was hard to leave because it had been such a pleasant experience to sit with them. Some background...my dad was born in Austria and my Oma cooked very authentic Bavarian food up until her stroke in Dec. 2004. She is doing well, but has to be in a nursing home because of all the meds she is on and the occasional confusion she has due to the stroke. I miss her cooking sooo much and this is the first time since the summer of 2004 when we last spent time with her before her stroke that I got to taste food that was just like hers. I had cold cucumber salad and cold tomato salad that reminded me of spending time in the summer with her when she'd make one of these at each meal. The spatzel, sauerkraut, and roast pork tasted just like hers and also my mom's. We don't eat or make much of that any more so it was such a fun and tasty treat to indulge in it again. I also enjoyed the white fish, which was cooked to perfection. By this time I was pretty full, but had to sample the German cheese cake and strudel with, yup, vanilla sauce. Both were excellent and had I not felt stuffed, would've eaten more. Again, my family was highly impressed and very glad I had booked the place. Our only disappoinment was that the German band wasn't starting until 1:15 and our ADR was at 12:05. Had I known that, I would've booked later. Everyone in my family gave it an A. Pheeewww....that took longer than I thought! Stay tuned for reviews on The Plaza Restaraunt, Sci-Fi Drive In, and some counter service restaraunts!
