Best and worst places to eat to take advantage of the new beverage options on the DDP.
Best and worst hotel spas please! I don't hear much on this on the Dis and I need to know.
There are only so many firework dessert parties so many extra and it a bit to “best and worst paid extra events” - so could includ the workework dessert parties but also the firework cruises or some of the tours and stuff they do at Animal Kingdom, etc
Basically like if you wanted to do something that cost extra what is the best and worse uses of your money?
Been to the 3 full service spas on property, my ranking as follows
1. Senses Spa at Saratoga, I knock a few points off for the flight of stairs that my 84 year old mother had to take to get to the locker room. Whirlpool and Sauna in locker room, with zero gravity lounges, nice showers with all the amenities. Nice relaxation room with plenty of lounges, dim lighting, nice refreshments.
2. Mandara Spa at the Dolphin, points knocked off because the Disney run Spas give AP discounts and they try to upsell you products when you go to settle your bill. Nice relaxation room, but stark lighting. Sauna but no whirlpool.
3. Senses Spa at Grand Floridian points knocked off because the relaxation room is not inviting, it is like Grand Central Station with people in and out of the room. Whirlpool and Sauna in locker room, with zero gravity lounges, nice showers with all the amenities.
Amazing! Are those pics of the Senses spa? How much did it cost you?
These particular pictures are from Senses at Saratoga Springs. The prices are listed on the Walt Disney World Website. They do give AP discounts.

We must be on the same wavelength!! I was about to post a thread asking this for my mother to use in August!
Craig, this is for you. Best and worst beers on Disney property.
Has snacks been done yet? I would like to hear that.
I asked this question in the disboards on facebook and got some interesting answers.
Best/worst pizza on property
Best/worst burgers on property
Best/worst sandwich on property
I am planning a trip with my teenage nephews and that is the kind of food they want to eat most of the time
I always throw this one out there as it rarely gets mentioned, but the Wagu Beef slider at the Brown Derby Lounge in DHS is my favorite burger on property (Wagyu Beef with Cognac-Mustard Aïoli, Smoked Gouda Cheese, Bacon, and Avocado)
Oh gosh that does look good!!
Has there been a best and worst bars? I would love to see that.
I’m a little biased here because I love the spa at the Waldorf Astoria over at Bonnet Creek. Nothing against the Disney ones, I just always have a great experience at any Waldorf I’ve been to.
You are absolutely right. It’s never crossed my mind to even look at the kids menu when doing reviews and a lot of restaurants will actually make a child sized portion of things on the adult menu with a dining plan (I assume without one also). This is definitely something that we should incorporate into the dining shows.
Love that you guys are so open to taking things onboard ❤️
I've never been to any spa on or off property! Any tips on which ones to try out would be appreciated. I know Pete goes to a few of the spas, but I've never heard an in-depth review.
Thanks Sean! I really appreciate that you guys are willing to listen to feedback. We obviously love the shows, or else we wouldn't watch every week, but everyone can learn from other people's feedback!
