I'd love to try the GF tea. We always enjoy tea at other locations. The times don't seem to work well for us though. It's too late for lunch & too early for dinner. If we do the tea as a late lunch, there's not enough time between then & dinner. I know it's traditional to have tea between lunch & dinner, but I need to figure out a time that works for my DH & DS(17). They think they have to eat 3 meals a day.

I hope that's the case. We don't mind a server kidding around with us, but I draw the line at being force fed or yelled at.

Smile Love the Reviews

I am so glad that there are other people out there that plan their WDW vacations around ADR's!!! Ever since we've done the dining plan, that's all I do. I think that if you don't plan the parks around at least two meals per day you're not getting the whole Disney experience. My husband and I are going back in November and I'll be pulling him to the Yak and Yeti CS! I haven't been back since it was put it. All your reviews are fantastic and I cannot wait to see what else you come up with! I must say, that I am a bit jealous that you've been to WDW sooo many times. Growing up in San Diego, I was able to go to Disneyland, which of course is AWESOME, but you get so much more out of WDW!! Keep it going, I'm looking forward to your next post!!!

Just joining. enjoying your reviews and pics.

Glad to see you liked Cape May. We are staying at BC and I want to try b'fast there. Last year, we went to Chef Mickey's - luckily, we had a better experience than you. I think I will definitely book Cape May this trip.

My goodness! I certainly missed a lot while I was gone! The good news is that I have more WDW food to share!

I'll edit the first post to include the new food.

I'm convinced to stay with Jiko. Citricos will go on the list for next trip.



This is the reason I'm hesitant to try 50's. I never finish my plate, & I don't want anyone force feeding me in fun or not. My family isn't into antics, when dining. I finally gave in & scheduled lunch at 50's for our next trip, because I want to see the decor. I really hope we get a laidback server.



Enjoy your time off!

I agree, they can definitely tell who's into the antics. And being "force fed" is never more than a bite!

I was seriously ready to die!!

anyways, enjoying your review, looking forward to more!

here is my pic

When I was there in August last year I couldn't finish my salad, so I got teased for not finishing my "greens." The whole plate was greens!

Oh...and you mean there are people who don't plan their trips around food? What is wrong with them?

The only Margaritaville I've been to is the one at the Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica...on the way home from our wedding.

The fried chicken at 50's is to die for!! Hubby got that and I had the salmon. I cleaned my plate and then kept picking at his chicken. It was just so good!!

We're thinking Cape May for our next character breakfast (hubby and I are pushing 40 with not kids and we insist on at least 1 character meal per trip). Sounds like a good choice.

Now I'm hungry from reading your report and I just ate lunch.
Haha, that's always my problem with this board

This past weekend my boyfriend and I went up to Epcot for my birthday...I planned the meals for that too.

I think we went down around the back and there was plenty of it, but I could be remembering that incorrectly.

Love the Norway bakery. Wish I had some school bread right now. I have seen it with the line out the door though.
Stay tuned, you just might see a picture!

We weren't on the DDP and I've never done the DDP, so I can't be certain, but this is my understanding. This was their menu:


If you look next to the egg rolls, there's the little purple symbol. I think that means it counts as a snack.

With the tea, you don't have to go for all the courses. You can do the a la carte and get just the tea and then the tea sandwiches or the sweets. They also have a cheese plate. OR you can go at 2 and make it a late lunch. Then have a late dinner?

You'll really enjoy the CS! I have been an awfully lot, but I'm sad now I have no planned trips! It's very disturbing.

As I've mentioned (I think) previously, we've had some great experiences at Chef Mickeys, but it was just that last one in October that was awful. I much prefer Cape May now.

Earl of Sandwich

Alright...lets get back on track!

A quick review...

That evening my Mom went back home to pack for a trip, so my Nana and I headed over to DTD. While walking I decided I would love something "normal" to eat...to recap, that day I had eaten the breakfast buffet (so a lot of "sampling"), the popcorn, then the tea. So we decided to head over to Earl of Sandwich and split a sandwich! They're large enough, so it wasn't a problem. The line was pretty long when we got there, but it moved quickly and gave us time to decide on what we wanted. Nothing too heavy obviously!! We opted for the Club. And I totally forgot to take a picture of it It was plenty large enough for both of us and really hit the spot. I was starting to get jittery before that since I didn't have any normal food!! I've always liked Earl of Sandwich, think they have tasty food, quick service, etc etc. Good place.

We of course went into Goofy's Candy Company, so I'll use these shots as my bonus!!


I got one of the marshmellows, brought it home with me. Managed to make out quite fine in my purse


I just loved the Mickey Carmel Apples!!

Kona: Breakfast

My GP's were taking me to the airport that morning, but since I didn't need to leave for the airport until 11, we decided to have a nice breakfast



I called a few days before for an ADR for Kona. It wasn't hard to get at all. They were taking walk-ups around 930 that morning at about a 15 minute wait.

The service was slow to get started. I was getting kind of antsy actually. Took forever to get our drinks. But they made up for it by getting my Grandfather's bacon right (he likes it really, really, really crisp...and it came out perfect.) So that was good. I of course got the Tonga Toast:


My GF got the French Toast and my Nana...I honestly can't remember what she got. I know it had the "home fried potatoes" on it because she didn't like them. She made a comment to our waitress...something along the lines of, "I know how to make home fried potatoes, and those are not home fried potatoes." And our waitress must have read her right because she laughed and said, "Oh I'm sure, I agree. If you want to substitute a fruit cup next time, you can do that easily." And that made my Nana happy. Go figure. But fyi: you can sub fruit for potatoes.

I don't know if I'm happy or disappointed that there was no Earl of Sandwich photo. We went there last trip for the first time - can't believe we'd never been. It was so yummy. Probably good there wasn't a picture or I'd be drooling again. Although Goofy's doesn't cure that either. Love the apples! Didn't see those last time we were there. I would have gotten one just for the cute factor.
