    We have been back and forth with our reservations this trip. We are trying some new locations and are really disappointed that California Grill will not be open!!! I know that we have a lot of ADR's, but this something that we really look forward to doing while in WDW.

    So that is what we have come up with this year. If you have any recommendations for any of the restaurants that we are trying that are new, I would definitely appreciate it. My DH is pretty excited to try Sanaa. Not sure about eating at The Plaza, but nothing else really interests us at MK.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

    Looks like a lot of really good places.

    Two suggestions...

    August 10, I would consider Liberty Tree Tavern for lunch. I like the Colony Salad (on the light side) and then the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. You won't have to leave the park either.

    August 11, I would move VN back a good amount. Boma is a buffet, so you'll leave stuffed! I'd budget about 60-75 minutes for th emeal, so you should be finished around 9:30 am. I would put at least four hours between then and your next meal. I love VN and there are so many good things to eat. So I wouldn't want to be too full to try lots of items.

    We are big on dining too. You will love Sanaa and Citricos. They are fantastic. As for the Plaza, we love it!!! It's so basic and so simple yet so good and the atmosphere is nice. And to be honest, after all the heavier meals throughout the week, it's kind of nice to stop and have a strawberry chicken salad or club sandwich lol.

    Have a Great Trip!

    For your HS lunch I would try 50's Prime Time or the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater. Both have good food and are lots of fun! We love them both and try to get to each of them every trip.

    You will love Flame Tree Barbeque!! Soooooo good! It is our new must have QS!

    Flame Tree is great! It's my favorite QS in AK and second favorite across all the parks (1st being Tangierine Cafe in Epcot)

    Sanaa is also fantastic. I've tried to replicate their Butter Chicken a couple of times at home, and gotten decent/edible results, but nothing as good as what we had there!
