    At Yak & Yeti I would suggest sharing the ribs. They are AWESOME and there is more than enough to share.

    You have lots of great choices on here!

    no way jose is GREAT.
    Also, if u like shakes- their choco pb shakes are delicious :)

    The only "sushi" i've had at cali grill is a cali roll adn that was delicious but HUGE. If you're sharing things you might not need more than 1 maybe 2 sushi items cuz they're HUGE.

    Great choices! We enjoyed our experiences at the California Grill, Kona, Tutto Italia and Wolfgang Puck Express.

    Another suggestion for Kona is the ribeye steak. It was probably the best ribeye I've eaten and was melt-in-your-mouth tender. A steak knife was not necessary because it was so tender.

    The sweet corn bisque soup at California Grill was delicious too! Don't forget to consider the Valrhona Chocolate Cake with ice cream (I believe mine was cherry) for dessert. Heaven on a plate!!

    On Wed. have you considered a later breakfast? We enjoyed our breakfast at Ohana and the kids were thrilled with the characters too.

    You are welcome. If you decide not to get the dim sum basket the Lettuce Cups and the Pot Stickers are also AWESOME!

    The Tavern Fried Cheese at LTT is my favorite WDW food. They give you two different types of cheese sticks and I love them both!

    The Tuna Oscar at Kona is FABULOUS as well as the nachos at T-Rex. They are enough to share plus maybe share an entree...you won't need much more!!!

    The flame tree bbq at ak is wonderful. |Delicious and gorgeous scenery. Cape May Clambake also very wonderful and pretty a good night for Epcot. Not to be too Canadian, but you can not beat the steaks at Le Celier in the Canada pavilion

    Wow.. I'm impressed with your list! The only thing I noticed was the fish and chips at the Pub. The food wasn't anything extra I wouldn't find anywhere else. I was kinda disappointed (of course things could have changed since I had it last). If you're in EPCOT, I would highly suggest something else.. Maybe in Morocco?

    I concur...the steaks at Le Celier are wonderful...and those pretzel breadsticks RULE!!...

    we ate lunch at Le Cellier last trip...we were so stuffed that we had to spend an hour on one of the little benches outside letting our food digest so we would be able to drag ourselves back to the monorail!! :sad2: I can't believe I'm admitting that!

    We shared the Dim sum Basket & it was VERY small. It was only about 4-5 mini bite-sized pieces. (We love Dim Sum, so DH really wanted to try it. We thought they would at least be normal dim sum size, and we were suprised by the itty bitty pieces.) I strongly suggest that you go elsewhere instead (maybe try the new "Picnic in the Park" at $8/person for each to get a sandwich or chicken, large dessert, bottled water, and share a side) b/c the service at Yak & Yeti was also pitiful- truly the worst I've ever had at any restaurant, ever.​

    Are you looking for another counter service or table service? DH finds the turkey legs in MK irresistible. I really enoy indulging in the corndog bites at Casey's Corner. If you want to share something, Cosmic Ray's Cafe (counter service) has a very large rib and chicken combo or double cheese burgers that are enormous and definitely enough to share too. Plus, they also have the super-delicious toppings bar there.....Then again, you could always eat ice cream for dinner at the ice cream parlor, lol.​

    Dinner: The Wave
    --Cinnamon Rubbed Pork Tenderloin Very good, we had this in March 09 (pics in my link) and we loved it!

    --Chocolate Mousse with Salted Caramel Sauce, Almond-Pineapple-Raisin "Baklava", Chocolate-Passion Fruit Mousse with Pecan-Olive Had this in March too...it was good but not the best of the ones offered.

    Dinner: Sci-Fi Dine In
    --Onion Rings AWESOME! Not greasy at all and the portion was huge

    Lunch: Beaches & Cream
    --No Way Jose My favorite ice cream dessert in all of WDW, if you love peanut butter you will love this!

    Lunch: Wolfgang Puck Express
    --Pepperoni, mushroom and extra cheese pizza Excellent! They have wonderful pizza here

    Wow that's disappointing to hear....we ate at Yak & Yeti right when it first opened and really enjoyed the experience...granted we didn't have the dim sum that time...only the pot stickers which were really good...but our server was pleasant and accomodating...so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience...but I truly appreciate the input and the suggestion.

    I haven't heard about Picnic in the Park...we're all about trying new places...so I'll have to check it out! :yay:
