We're Back from 15 Days of Disney Dining! Emmy (JustEmmy) and I recently returned from 15 days of delightful WDW dining. We left with nearly 40 ADRs that included 10 new restaurants. However, given the sheer enormity of the amount of food we would have consumed with all those reservations we ditched some of them. We were excited to dine with a couple Disers, enjoyed a special dining event on safari, and had afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian. Oh, and there was the special tour of the Dream Suite of Cinderellas Castle but this is a dining review so no ones interested in that here!! (You'll have to pop over to my TR for that one! To make it easy, here's a link.) A few Disers that may look familiar: Goofysons'mom, JustEmmy, DonaldDoleWhip, and Emmysmommy (and Andrew our honorary Diser!) We ended up keeping 8 of the 10 new restaurants. (Fresh at the Dolphin Hotel and Rose and Crown will have to await another trip.) Please stay tuned to see my new favorite Signature restaurant, where we dined twice in the same trip, what cocktail that's all the rave around here that I tried and what did I really think? And finally, some insanely delicious new snacks/treats that I discovered! For those that followed along on the live dining thread, thanks for dropping by. I can't guarantee that this won't look like de ja vu but it will have some bonus content and some photos that were not shared on the live thread. I suppose I should also mention that although I will share many of the same restaurants that have become favorites over the last few years, you WILL see me try some new items. I know, hard to believe! (Insert disclaimer: I absolutely can not be held responsible for not changing up what I order at Kona Café for breakfast. They hold the distinction of offering the most legendary of breakfast items in all of WDW for my taste buds so why mess with a good thing?) And for those that have not followed along with my prior DR/TRs let me share a little about me and my little travel party. I am 30 something, tall, thin, blonde, and can eat an entire kitchen sink at B&C without gaining an ounce. WE KNOW THATS A LIE! Ok, you want the truth... I wont reveal my age (and those of you who know that I have a 30 yr old son so stop doing the math!), I'm short, have to run to maintain the excess weight I do carry around, am a natural red head (that one I'll admit to since before too long this too will change!), and yeah, I probably gained 8.5 pounds alone on this trip. No self-control I tell you! This was the 5th girls trip with my 17 yr old DD Emmy. My DH, Michael, is absent this trip since it was booked as another girl trip since we had other summer travel plans as a family. With that, let's move on to our dining plans.

I offer no guarantees that this thing will not emerge into 2015 before I'm finished! And one more thing... Thank you up front for reading along.
