Putting Tutto Italia on my "must-have" list. It looks delicious and I'm not big on Italian food. (Even Olive Garden...... hehe)

Do you think it would be okay to bring a two year old?

Absolutely! There were plenty of children of all ages when we went, and they all seemed happy.

Hey, enjoying the great reviews so far.
We ate at Tutto 2 weeks ago and LOVED it!! I also got the Lasagna and it was so darn good that I actually schlepped my leftovers back to the Wilderness Lodge and attempted to reheat them the next day in the microwave there. Needless to say, that Lasagna is designed to be enjoyed FRESH. It lacked big-time on Day 2. Oh well, it was worth a shot as the portion was GI-NORMOUS!

Thumbs up Day 2- September 2, 2008

Okay so Daniel is MIA, and I will write his review so we can continue.

Wolfgang Puck Express

I had been looking forward to WPE since I read about it last November when I joined the boards. It seemed like a great value with or without the DDP, so I made it a must-do for our trip.

We got home from Epcot, and we change and wait for a bus to Downtown Disney. The wait is ridiculous! It's about 4 buses until we're finally able to get on, and I am being smothered by girls in short dresses and too much perfume.

After 45 minutes we get to DTD (why does it take so long to get to DTD?!), and we get off at the Marketplace bus stop, and there it is...Wolfgang Puck Express!

The line is really long, but this gives us time to look around- it's a nice place, and the smell is incredible. The menu is also impressive- there are so many things I want to try!!

Daniel settles on the Rigatoni with Chicken Bolognese - all natural chicken bolognese topped with Grana Padano Parmesan $12.95

I choose the Meatball and Parmesan - Niman Ranch meatballs, fresh basil pesto, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, tomato-basil garlic sauce and fresh basil $10.95

For dessert we both chose creme brulee and we both have diet cokes.

The dining room was really crowded, so we get a table outside since it is about 8 p.m. and it's not hot anymore. Daniel and I enjoy sitting outside and talking about our exciting day at Epcot. The people around us must have been really annoyed by our giggling and excitement, but we couldn't contain ourselves. Our dream of going to WDW had finally come true. Who wouldn't be happy?

Our food comes in about 10 minutes, which is nice considering at WDW restaurants your food comes really fast.

Daniel's Plate:


His plate came with a side salad, which I tried and didn't like much. I don't like sweet/tart dressings though. I didn't try his pasta because I had a huge pizza to tackle.



Best pizza I have ever had! The meatballs had so much flavor and they were juicy. The cheese was also very creamy and not chewy like some pizzas can be. The sauce...yum...I could eat the sauce by itself. I got so excited I ate almost a whole slice before remembering to take a picture. Sorry!

When the pizza came out, I thought to myself, "There's no way I could finish this."

Wrong. I ate all of it minus the 1 piece I gave to Daniel. It was THAT good.

The portion is huge. I was expecting a small, personal pizza type of thing.

Daniel wasn't too impressed with his pasta dish because of how much he loved lunch at Tutto Italia.

And this is the moment where everything changes:

Daniel: "Tutto was good"

Me: <mouthful of pizza> "Yup"

Daniel: "Sci-Fi was bad"

Me: <mouthful of diet coke> "Mmm hmmm"

Daniel: "Where are our other ADRs?"

Me: <puts down glass> "Why?"

Daniel: "Well, Tutto was so good, I don't want to have bad meals."

Me: "This is why you should have looked at the menus and reviews before our trip like I asked you to." hhmm, where's our dessert

Daniel: "So, where are our ADRs at."

I go through the list and what they offer, and he changes most of them. This is why our ADRs changed so much. Hopefully he learned his darn lesson.

The server brings our creme brulee:



It is a generous portion, and it is perfect! I am really picky about creme brulee because it can be over/underdone, but not this one.

Overall, WPE is a must-do on every trip. Though it is counter-service, the server brings you your food and refills your drinks. The quality of the food is outstanding, and I wish I could eat there daily. WPE was better than some of our TS meals.

Daniel's Score:

Taste: 6
Originality: 5
Service: 5

16/30 (he kept comparing it to Tutto, which isn't really fair)

Monica's Score:

Taste: 10
Originality: 8
Service: 7

25/30

Cost:
2 CS credits
Cash Cost: $42.00 (yowza!!)

Well I am really glad you liked WPE. They have fabulous food! Sorry Daniel didn't like it but I guess regular pasta after amazing pasta is a let down. You guys should try it again next trip but not have the pasta!
I can't wait to read more.

The conversation you had at WPE about ADRs was exactly like the one I had with DH back in April when we were there for 8 days. He wanted nothing to do with the planning but once we get there he tries to mess everything up!

Now I have him trained....he is to sit down with me and go over the menus throroughly and give me his imput not just tune me out and say whatever you want is fine....because yes that is easier for me upfront but it bites me in the butt 6 months later when we are on our trip!

My husbands motto is "I can find something to eat no matter where we go".. so I am the one in charge.. and he never gets to complain.. or I throw that motto right back at him..

My husband tried to pull this on me AFTER I called and made all of our ADR's for December, with a party of 8!!! He was trying to change everything! He starts saying stuff like "you didn't get CRT for breakfast, you got lunch?" I love their breakfast. I was like

Well, I am glad to hear I am not the only woman with a difficult hubby. They want to do none of the work and reap all the rewards. No fair!

I'll be posting more reviews in a bit!!
