Dining Review Preamble: My DD and I recently returned from 8 nights/9 days at WDW that included 23 meals that I get to share with all of you lucky folks! Seriously though, these boards were such a tremendous help with deciding where we were going to eat that I want to share our experiences, and of course all the photos that we took of all this food. Before I get into the real reason for this thread - it really is ALL about the FOOD - some background on us. Hi there, I'm Brenda and this was our 3rd girl only trip to WDW in the last 18 months. We timed the trip to coincide with a school break and more importantly to celebrate DDs Sweet 16 birthday! She actually was involved in much of the planning and chose many of the restaurants in addition to selecting her own birthday dining day. Im really thankful that I still have this time with her since our other 3 kids are grown, married, and gone from the nest. Noticeably absent is my DH . His vacation style is more fishing, camping, and boating compared to my preference of deluxe villas and room service. Actually, he is very diverse and our family vacations are typically cruises so I take advantage of time with my DD while I am blessed to still have it. This is the second trip that we are using our TiW card: This girl trip was 8 nights at Bay Lake Tower 1 bedroom TPV. (Love the view of the castle and the fireworks from our balcony!) Most of our ADRs were for restaurants we had tried in the past with 5 new ones this trip. Our dining line up: Day 1: arrival day Dinner: Cosmic Rays a tradition!
