I was right -- you did head to the California Grill!

What an amazing dinner! Your views, the wine, the entrees, the desserts -- what a nice way to start your dining experiences for the trip!

Now I want to eat there!

Looks like a lovely and delicious evening. I can't wait to dine there in Sept! Gorgeous view from your table! I didn't notice the sky until you said something. A biblical departure?

I had so forgotten about the California Grille! Those views are totally beautiful! And, TK, you look better than ever!

I need tog o read up on that particular location--wondering if it would not be a good meal for dh and I to take dd10 and leave our youngest two at the childcare at the Poly. (But then, we'd have to figure out what to do with 4 meal credits--maybe breakfast--don't they serve like PBJ at the childcare facilities for dinner?)

You'll enjoy it so much.

And yes.

Quite biblical.

I didn't realize that we were going to be channeling Noah and lining up the animals two by two.

It was a great way to start. Relaxed.

I know, I look so gorgeous with my head blocked out, right?

I think that your 10 year old would love the view at the very least. I can't remember what the children's menu is like, but I know I really prefer it at all the signature restaurants. So much better than the regular stuff, which can be very repititive. I won't drone on, I promise, it's just one of my pet peeves.

I really do love Citrico's, though. We decided to eat at the California Grill because that had been one of Tink's desires for a long time, so I knew when we planned the trip that had to be one of the ADRs. I'd also eaten at Citrico's on my past two trips, so it was time for a change, but you may want to consider it as well. They are excellent with children.

Anyway, I don't know what they serve at those clubs. We've never used one, although I guess DS is old enough now. Perhaps someone else can chime in?

Your meal sounds heavenly. Well, except for the lamb. Not a lamb fan. DH would be all over it though! What a lovely dinner!!!
The funny thing is that I'm normally not a fan of lamb either.

I actually very rarely eat red meat, but this was divine!

We are doing the Deluxe Dining Plan, so we have Yachtsman, Hoop de Doo, Brown Derby, Citricos (on your reccommendation), Cinderella's Royal Table, and California Grille (now) on our list.

With my kids being school age and fully knowledgeable on how to use a cell phone (we'll leave one with them), I think it would be a good idea to take Sweetie to California Grille for a 5:30 meal and then head over to MK at 7:30 for Spectro and Wishes, since Stinky and Boo both are scared of the sound from fireworks.

I love Citrico's so much, I recommend it twice. Sorry about that!

You've got some great signature restaurants in there. YUM. YUM.

That sounds like a really nice evening! I know my son has a hard time with the fireworks too. We'll have to see how he does on this trip, although given that he's sort of giving up nap time, I don't know if he'll even make it to fireworks on any given night.

It's going to sound weird, but this biblical event actually contains one of my favorite moments from this trip.
