    Hi everyone! :wave2: Welcome to my first ever dining review. I have read so many reviews and gained a lot of insightful information from these boards which helped with making my ADRs that I thought it was only fair to share my opinions of Disney food with all of you.

    So, who will be the people tasting the food. First, there is me Tenzeela, better known as Tanz. I’m 29 and have a very sweet tooth! I am looking forward to trying all the desserts and cupcakes on offer.

    Coming with me is my partner of 5 years Zaheer, who could happily skip desserts. He does however love his meat and Disney have already been very helpful in accommodating with getting Halal meat for our ADRs – meat that has been prepared a certain way.

    Here is a pic of the two of us though it is from a while back. I will replace it with an updated photo after our trip.

    I'm here...and can't wait to see what you think of your meals.

    I'll have to check in our first morning at AKL because you are dining at Captain's Grill the day we fly to Florida and we've never been.

    :welcome: Kathy! Thanks for joining in! I can't wait for all the food and gluttony on our trip! :rotfl:

    I wasn't thinking of doing live reviews but will try and check in to let you know what we thought of Captain's Grille - the reviews I've read on here have all been good. Hope you enjoy it!


    Yay, :welcome: Danielle! Thanks for coming over! I will be taking lots of pictures of cupcakes for us to drool over! :lmao:

    Hi Shannon! :welcome: and thanks for subbing! I can't wait to share my reviews after stuffing myself silly with food! :laughing:

    :welcome: thanks for joining! I can't wait to try all our ADRs!

    I see you only have a week to go until your trip! How exciting! I'm going to head over to your pre-dining report and check it out! :goodvibes

    I swear I have had NOTHING but brain farts on the DIS all day. Of course you won't have written your review as of yet. Perhaps if you have time AND DO NOT GO OUT OF YOUR WAY, you can send me a PM on here and let me know what you thought. I'm sure we'll love it.

    Lol don't worry about it! I have made enough brain farts (btw I love the wording! :laughing:) on these boards! I will definitely send you a PM (if I have internet access or can get free wifi somewhere) to let you know our thoughts. I'm sure you will love it as well.

    I'm so in!! I'm just drooling thinking about all those restaurants!!!! :love:

    You've got a great list so far!! :thumbsup2 I just have to warn you that last time we were in the World, we ended up canceling a dinner because we were just so stuffed after eating so much every day!! It seems like you've got it planned out nicely though so that might not happen! We were just about to explode! :rotfl:

    I'm in, can't wait to read your reviews! I'm thinking of doing a dining review as well, but I don't know if I can be bothered to keep track of every single thing we eat on our trip! :laughing: It's hard enough taking notes for the TR!

    Yay, :welcome: Emma! Glad to have you following along! I know, when I was writing the list I was loving it but at the same time wondering how I was going to handle all that food! :lmao:

    I'm sure at some point we will be soo stuffed and our plans may change but at least we have the option of cancelling or just going overboard and stuffing ourselves silly (I like the second option! :rotfl:) Just think though I was trying to add a Wishes Dessert Party in the mix as well - maybe it's a good thing we were not successful in that quest! :laughing:

    Yay, :welcome: Jen! Thanks for joining in! :goodvibes

    You should def consider doing a dining review - it'll be fun but I understand that it'll involve a lot of work. I don't think I know what I'm getting myself into! :lmao: Think I will be okay on the keeping track part - just need to make sure I remember to take photos of things before they go into our mouths! :laughing:

    :welcome: Rachel! Thanks for joining in and I enjoyed reading all your reviews - gave me a heads up on what to expect on our trip! ;)

    Thanks - I am soo excited for our first trip!!!


    Yay. :welcome: thanks for coming over Carey! Just a warning to not read the list on an empty stomach! I made the mistake of writing it when hungry and oh my was it the wrong thing to do esp as I was just imagining what I would be ordering at each place! :lmao:

    I'm here!! I made it on over to your "DR" which I now know what it is. :rotfl: I don't think I have the discipline (or taste buds) for a DR, so I'll just read along with yours. Very excited!
