NoOrdinaryPrincess's Inaugural Dining Report: And we're back! (Updated 10/18)
As our vacation begins in just over a week, it seems appropriate that I begin my first ever DR. Though I've never written one of these before, I've read my fair share of DR/TRs, and one of my greatest pet peeves is people who begin their reports with disclaimers. For every report I read that begins with "Well, this report won't be as good as [insert other username here]'s but I'll try" I become overcome with the desire to give them a great big hug and yell "YOU HAVE A VALUABLE CONTRIBUTION TO MAKE TO THIS COMMUNITY YOU SHOULD NOT BE ASHAMED!" That said…this report begins with a disclaimer.
And that disclaimer is this.
The Mr. and I took a quick weekend getaway back in May [2 nights, 1 day at Epcot], and I took all the pictures and notes to prepare a DR, and then chickened out. I will say that some of my reservation stems from the fact that I'm a relatively private person and have serious reservations about my personal information accessible and searchable on the internet in such a way. The rest of my hesitation lies in the idea that I didn't think I'd do a proper job (which, we have already established, is bullocks).
However, I aspire to rectify this problem by providing that DR 5 months late as a lead-up to my upcoming vacation.
Vacation Plans, Past and Future:
Unfortunately for the Mr. (also known as "J") our anniversary and my birthday are a week apart, and so to ensure we had properly celebrated both events, we headed down for a weekend at Disney arriving on a Friday in early May, and departing on Sunday. During this visit we sampled such Disney classic cuisine as Earl of Sandwich and had our first Tonga Toast as well as special birthday and anniversary celebratory dinners.
Our upcoming trip includes 7 nights on the DDP, and we will be traveling with two of our closest friends "A" and "P". We intentionally planned our trip to coincide with the F&WF which will be a first for all of us. Our ADRs include restaurants such as California Grill and Coral Reef, as well as a surprise "boys night" in which A and I allowed the boys to plan an entire day of our vacation (we figured it was only fair, as we had planned the other six). Time permitting, I may add some speculation as to what that mystery ADR might be. I will say that I plan to primarily photograph and comment on my own dining selections, out of respect for my travel companions and well as my [potential] readers. I don't feel like I can give as useful a review on a meal I didn't eat.
Hopefully I'll be able to navigate these two simultaneous DRs with minimal confusion.
