Talking No more filet mignons! - 8 days of DxDDP; 4/29 Best/Worst

Please note - 4/25:
Due to many crazy life-changing things, this got put on the back-burner for a while, so I'm aware it's past this new 3-month rule (which was not in effect when I started this review). I plan to have it finished by the end of this week/start of next week, so I can have it out of my head and off my chest. :P


Words I never thought I'd say... But, the DxDDP happened and changed that.

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon. 8 days on DxDDP, so of course, a dining report is in order. You can also read our overall TR, which I'll be writing together with this one.

About us...
Me (Summer): Likes steak, dessert, and chicken. Dislikes mushrooms, seafood, and baby animals.
DH (Nic): Likes pineapple, dislikes eggs.

Setup...
We'll be including costs without Dining Plan, and tips. We'll also rate food, service, atmosphere, and overall experience out of 10 at each place.

At the end, I'll total up costs and do an overall DxDDP opinion/value post.

And the important part...
