    Introduction

    Hey everyone :goodvibes

    So I’ve been back in the wet and windy UK for a couple of weeks now and I have just about managed to get my chin off the floor and stop my bottom lip for sticking out :sad2: so let’s get this dining review started

    When?

    May 12th – May 26th 2012

    Where?

    12th – 19th May – The Disney Fantasy

    19th – 26th May – Saratoga Springs

    I’ll concentrate on the WDW portion of the trip for this review but just a quick note to say, on the whole, the food on The Fantasy exceeded expections (Remy and Palo were just incredible :cloud9:)

    Who?

    [​IMG]

    Me (44) years old (argh how the hell did that happen :eek:)

    The main, OK, the only ‘planner and laminator’ of our trips and lover of WDW, DCL, sweet treats and margaritas (although probably not quite in that order :rolleyes:). I don’t eat meat but I do eat fish

    DH (46)

    Totally goes with the flow of my over planning and is a wonderful travel partner :hug:

    His favourite drink is an ice cold coke and he is the carnivore of the family

    What?

    No dining plan this time as we thought that after spending 7 nights on a cruise we would probably not be in the mood for a ton of food (erm we still ate a ton of food :rolleyes1) and for the first time on one of our trips we didn’t do any signature dining (we cancelled our one and only reservation, Citricos, as we just weren’t ‘feeling it’)

    Any-hoo, when I was finally dragged off the ship (I don’t want to goooooooooo :sad1:) and armed with a nice long list of ‘must do snacks’ we hit the World and were ready to roll ……………………. I’d love it if you would roll along with us popcorn::

    Linda - I'm excited to hear all about it! The food, the treats, and the margaritas (perhaps not in that order :laughing:) I'd love to hear about your Fantasy cruise as well.

    I'm looking forward to hearing it all! :banana:

    Swit swoo, don't you scrub up nicely :thumbsup2

    Really looking forward to this! Count me in for Fantasy food also. In fact, the more pictures of the Fantasy, the better.

    ‘Let The Munching Begin’

    We flew in from London the night before our cruise and spent the night in a studio villa at the Wilderness Lodge

    [​IMG]

    We were both pretty shattered after our long flight so decided to just enjoy the resort for the evening before getting an early night ready for our cruise the next day :woohoo:

    Dinner tonight was to be at Roaring Fork, an old favourite of ours

    DH chose a burger

    [​IMG]

    1/3 lb. Angus Bacon Cheeseburger - with French Fries

    And I picked a Flatbread and a side salad

    [​IMG]

    Individual Cheese Flatbread


    There is just something about your first bite of Disney food isn’t there? :cloud9:

    I’m sure that these were pretty standard plates of food but we both demolished our meals in record speed and really, really enjoyed them

    As a sweet treat to end the meal we shared one of these babies

    [​IMG]

    Magic Cookie Bar

    OK so these are ridiculously sweet and probably cause all sorts of problems with your insulin levels but:

    1. ‘we are on vacation’ and
    2. ‘boy they taste good!’ :rolleyes:
