    Would you do the same table service restaurant twice in one trip? If so which one?

    I'm having trouble deciding on our last few adrs and we have a couple I wouldn't mind going back to since there are multiple things on the menu that I would love to try. I would only go back to one though and try new places to fill our other adrs.

    I have done this on several occasions (restaurants including Sanaa and California Grill.) But my trips are frequent, not once a year.

    We're going in 10 days and have 2 ressies at Le Cellier, Cal Grill and Ohana. Ohana is bkfst and dinner and Le Cellier is lunch and dinner. We also have CRT, BOG, Akershus, Narcoosse's, Crystal Palace, Coral Reef, Chef Mickey's, Citrico's and LTT. I wanted Narcoossee's twice but only very late ADR's were available.

    I've eaten at the Brown Derby twice in one trip once for lunch on a half day visit to DHS (Cobb Salads and a nice glass of wine), and then for dinner a few days later on another half day visit. Mostly because I find the other eatery options at DHS not very appealing and the Derby's theming really seems to "hit it" for me at DHS (and they have a very decent wine selection).

    If you love a place because they have so many things that appeal to you, there's no reason not to- whatever makes sense.

    If I could afford it, I would have no trouble eating at V & A's every single night of every trip..........

    Yes, we went to Le Cellier two times in one trip a few years ago. I would do it again, especially if there were more than one thing on the menu I was interested in.

    We'll be there in 9 days:cool1: and have 2 reservations for Via Napoli (1 lunch and 1 dinner) because I insist on having the pizza since it was so delicious last year:rotfl2: and my husband doesn't consider that "dinner" :rotfl:

    I say whatever works for you and your schedule! Have fun!

    Also I forgot to ask do you think we will have any problems making the adrs as far as canceling goes? I know the system will cancel a previous ADR if the one you are making is too close to it? What if its to the same restaurant, same time just a different day? It will also be a different number of guests since the rest of our group won't be arriving until later in the week.

    Thanks for the replies! I love hearing the different restaurants everyone goes back to. :)

    Like TDC Nala our trips are frequent. Even so, we make it a practice not to eat at the same restaurant more than once on a particular trip.

    However, we do make a couple of exceptions.
    Sometimes we stay at the Dolphin and have been known to do lunch/dinner at the Fountain more than once - especially if we don't feel like going out of the hotel after a long park day.
    Sometimes we stop at a favorite watering hole at Epcot more than once in a visit. We were fortunate enough to run into TDC Nala there last visit. :drinking:

    The reason we don't generally repeat a restaurant/meal is that there are so many good choices at WDW and we want to try them all.

    For me, No...but most of our trips are short. If I was to take a trip of more than a week, maybe, but likely it would be restaurant that a different menu at the two meals.

    There really are so many wonderful restaurants with vastly different atmospheres. Now if DBF were booking the trip...we'd probably only eat at three or four restaurants the whole trip!

    We do it all the time.
    Very often we'll eat 2x at Shulas, Citricos, Blue Zoo, or Flying Fish.

    I have and would if they were different meals (B, L, D)/menus, but otherwise, no~ there are too many restaurants I want to try! I'd go back to many on other trips though, there are some must dos we love.

    If there are multiple things I want to try, we try to share if we all like it though. Doesn't always work though, DH loves fish and and I don't care for the kinds he likes.

    Do whatever works for you though! It's your trip and if you would enjoy meals at the same restaurants by all means enjoy them! :)

    *Also, to answer your question, you can book multiple reservations for the same restaurants on different days, just as long as there aren't two or more reservations conflicting with similar times on the same day.

    We frequently visit Brown Derby twice over 7-10 day trips. Once for dinner, and lunch on the day we fly home. After a week of TS I'm ready for a Cobb salad at noon before our evening flight home!

    I personally wouldn't because we always go to a few of the same places each trip, but we also like to try new places.

    We are going back to Crystal Palace and Cape May Cafe twice, but it is breakfast, lunch, & Dinner.

    I would love to go to the Garden View Tea with DD twice on our next trip she loves it!

    I wouldn't hesitate to return somewhere twice in a trip, even if it was for dinner both times! Gotta Love my Favorites!

    :thumbsup2

    Sure - if you like it why not?

    I ate at La Hacienda twice this trip because the steak was so good on the La Hacienda platter the first time I got it

    Unfortunately as it seems with all thinks Disney it was not consistent and the second time I was quite disappointed

    We do it every trip...chef mickeys, crt, and akershus...my daughter loves the interaction and getting the autographs and taking pictures...i think eating with the characters is her favorite part of going to disneyworld...every day she asks me who we are eating lunch with today, or who are we eating dinner with tonight...she loves it and thinks it so great to eat with the princesses...

    Yes, you can definitely book the same restaurant for two times in one day, as long as the times do not conflict with each other. If you are booking lunch and dinner or breakfast and lunch or even breakfast and dinner, you won't have a problem:goodvibes I know because I have done it before without any problems!!!

    We did this on our past trip, we dined at California Grill twice. It wasn't something we planned for, but since we all love that restaurant, we didn't mind. One night we were suppose to eat at Artist Point and a Monsoon decided to roll in shutting down all transportation (we were staying at BLT), therefore we called the dining line and they gladly changed our AP ADR to a CG ADR (without being penalized) because of the situation (other diners were calling in too trying to change around their ADRs). We had just dined at CG 2 days prior :goodvibes.
