    Here we go...I didn't take pictures of everything, but I will post what I have. We used the Dining Plan for the first time, and I'm still undecided if it was something I will use again.

    On the trip it was me (mom) my best friend (Edie) my dd (maddie 12) and ds (Kellen 11)

    Overall....we had a few GREAT dinner, a few OK dinners and a few YUCKY dinners.

    6/15/07- HOOP DE DOO
    No pictures of food here. It was fried chicken, ribs, cornbread, baked beans, salad. It was really good. The show was entertaining too! I don't think we'll have a desire to do it again, but I am glad we did it.

    6/16/07- LIBERTY TREE TAVERN
    We did this last year, and it was just as good this year too! I love the family style dinner here. They serve you turkey, beef and pork (I think) and stuffing, mashed pot, green beans, and mac and cheese. It's filling, and the character interaction is fun! The dessert here is great too. It was a warm apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

    6/17/07- Sunshine Seasons
    We ate lunch here. I only got a picture of one sandwhich, but we all ended up getting the same thing. It was a great counter service choice, with tons of choices.

    Dinner was at LE CELLIER tonight...what can I say except YUMMY! It was by far the best meal of the trip! Our server was a little hurried, and not very talkative, but that's fine. We came for the food!
    For starters...

    Sour Apple Freezes: The kids thought these were awesome!

    Caesar Salad

    This was great!

    Chedder Cheese Soup: This was proclaimed by all to not be very good. I was expecting it to be like a cheddar broth in a cheddar/broccoli soup. It was pretty strong, and had a strong bacon taste too.

    Shrimp cocktail: This was good, but a little spicey!

    Mussells: My daughter and Edie loved these!

    Mushroom Filet: Sooooo good! Almost didn't need a knife to cut this! All steak had to live up to this one, and all of them failed in comparison. Just wonderful!

    New York Strip: Kellen proclaimed this awesome! He is only 11, but it did look good!

    Seafood: I forgot the actual name of this, but it was seafood (mussells, shrimp and scallops) in a broth with risotto. Maddie thought it was awesome. She loves seafood!

    Chocolate Moose: Kellen loves this, and it's almost too cute to eat!
    [​IMG]

    S'mores: Good Lord this was Yummy! And the presentation is great too!

    We really loved this restaurant, and I can understand why it's the most popular in all of the Disney parks.

    6/18/07- Whispering Canyon Cafe

    This was just ok for us. I found that it's a restaurant better suited to smaller kids. The food was just ok. Remind me of TGI Fridays or Applebees. I didn't take any pictures of our meals, but these are fun.

    Will post more tomorrow...enjoy!

    Thanks for the great reviews! I'm looking for a bit more info on the mushroom filet, if you don't mind. This will be our first night's ADR & I was thinking of ordering this. I really don't like mushrooms, though. Are they really small pieces, so you don't notice them, or are they big, so I can just push 'em off to the side? I've read so many good reviews of this entree, so I want to know what I'm missing! We had lunch there last year, and I had the petit filet with cream cheese potatoes, I think. Should I stick with that?

    ::butting in::

    I ordered this last year and I just don't "do" mushrooms so asked for it with them (and the sauce) on the side and it was no problem. The steak was great!

    We're going in August. Having lunch at LeCellier. Dinner was booked. Really wanted the mushroom filet but noticed it's not on the lunch menu. Will they let you order something from the dinner menu at lunch. We're on the DDP.

    They will let you order most things from the dinner menu at lunch time. I ordered the filet at lunch 2 months ago and it wasn't a problem.

    Great reviews so far. What about Whispering Canyon didn't you care for? I booked it with dd17, ds14, dd8. I thought it sounded fun with a lot of food.
