We Came, We Saw, We ATE The World! 11 Nights Dlx DP *9/2 Yak & Yeti*

Welcome everyone!

We just returned from an incredible 11 night trip to Disney's Art of Animation with the Deluxe Dining Plan.

There is lots and lots and LOTS of food to tell you about, so I hope you will join along with us.

What you will find in this Dining Review:

Two trips to see a manager, one for outstanding service, one for horrible service. Can you guess which one is where?

28 ADRs!

44 Snacks (including several from the Flower & Garden booths!)

Lots and lots of seafood!

Amazing desserts!

Tales of dining at Disney with special dietary needs

Drinks ALL the way around the World!


What you won't find in this Dining Review:

Fantastic pictures of steak. We are both pescetarian. For those not familiar, we will eat fish and shellfish, but no land animals. So no poultry, beef, or pork. We both chose a pescetarian diet for primarily health reasons vs. ethical reasons. That is a different story for a different time and place. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask though.

Up Next: Introductions!

My dad tried the surf & surf burger and really liked it. We all agreed that Landscapes has the best counter service food! We loved breakfast and dinner.

Great start to your report. Can't wait for the rest of it. I have a lot of the same places booked that you dined at so I'm very interested in you experiences.

So happy I found your report! I too am "officially" a pescatarian (although I probably don't eat seafood more than a few times a year). Your ADR's look great and I can't wait to see your choices!!!

Wow is that naan sampler a mini Sanaa bread service? That is the first I have seen of this! Definitely making a note of it!
