Enjoying your reviews! Sorry you were disappoined in Chefs we're eating there in a few weeks so I'm hoping the food improves by then! I've never been and really want to give it a try!

Congratulations!!!!!

Thank you for the picture of the crab claw on your hand. I've seen lots of pictures of the claws but never realized how BIG they were!!

I'm glad you had a good experience at 'Ohana's. Someday I may have to give them another try.

Thank you!

Oh, no! I always thought the macaroni at Chefs looked so delicious. So sad that it was mushy for you. Maybe they just happened to overcook the pasta that day??

I thought the moose at LeCellier was cake too! -- thanks for telling me that tidbit. And I was glad to see the pics of 'Ohana. We usually eat at Kona but 'Ohana was the first meal we had in WDW in 2006 and DH and I decided to eat there again. (The menu has changed since 2006 though). Everything looked good and I can't wait.
We want to try Kona on our next trip. I hope it will be good.

Too bad you didn't enjoy Ohana's, hopefully it will be better on your next trip.

I did a Chefs lunch in June and it was great, the quiche was excellent but when we went back in Oct for dinner it was horrible, no way would we go back for dinner again,


Love the review, excellent pics! Keep up the good work!
We both really loved Fulton's and it will have to be a repeat on next trips. The Chocolate Raspberry cake sounds a lot better than the dry chocolate cake.

I've read a lot of good reviews of chefs, don't be turned off just based on our not so good experience. Everyone has different tastes.

The claws were a lot bigger than I had anticipated. They were really filling too.

That's what I'm guessing, because there are more good reviews than bad reviews about the macaroni.

day 7



The next morning we had 8:05am reservations at the Crystal Palace. We were seated at 8:00am.

Here was my first plate



and this was Denis first plate



Here is Denis second plate



and here is my second plate. The puffed french toast were sooo good I had to get another one.



After seeing me eat 2 puffed french toast, Denis decided to take a bite off mine and he couldn't believe how good it was. Usually when I tell him to try something, he doesn't like it. So when I told him to try the french toast he didn't want to. Well he wanted to eat one, but was too full and complained about it for the next 10 minutes. Poor muffin, next time he'll listen to the wife.

The characters then went by, here are a few with them





Then our server came to our table with a little surprise. A cupcake and a card signed by everyone.




We toured the MK that morning and at around 2pm we were in fantasyland and decided to go to the Pinocchio village haus.

I had the pepperoni pizza and side salad



It was ok. Not terrible, but not great either.

Denis had the chicken nuggets



For dessert we both had the strawberry cheesecake



again it was ok.


That night we had dinner reservations at 7pm at 1900 Park Fare.

Here was my plate.



I remember I had ceasar salad, rice, salmon, stir fried beef and some sort of macaroni. Everything was good except the macaroni, I took one bite and left the rest on the plate. I would of loved to get seconds, but I was full

Here is Denis plate, we don't remember everything he had.



and the strawberry soup



I had a taste of the soup and thought it was good. Denis loved it and cleaned the bowl.

Here is Denis plate of dessert



and here is mine



I don't really remember what was what. The desserts were ok, but a lot of them looked better than they tasted.

day 8 - a small disaster



So today we had a slight setback. It happened later in the day, so you'll have to read to find out what happened.

Ok so we sarted day 8 with breakfast at the Artist Palette. I had the breakfast flatbread



This was really good. I actually had it the next 3 mornings. This is the only picture I took of it, so I won't include it in the next days of reviews.

Denis had the bounty platter.



He said it was good, his only complaint was that the potatoes weren't cooked enough.


After breakfast, we headed to Hollywood studios for ropedrop. For lunch we had 11:35am reservation at Sci-fi Dine in. We both loved the theme of this restaurant and regardless of the bad reviews it sometimes gets for the food, we both enjoyed the food. It wasn't the greatest, but the atmosphere made up for it.



We could get the milkshakes as our drinks, so of course we did. I had the oreo shake.



It was really good.

Denis had the strawberry shake.



He said it was really good too.

For our entrees, we both had the ribs. They were ok, there was a lot of fat on them. We had better ribs at Yak n' Yeti and even at the Pepper Market.



For dessert I had the chocolate peanut butter cake.



This was soo good. The cake was warm with a light peanut butter center with ice cream on top and nuts.

Denis had the Cheesecake



He really liked it especially the caramel corn on it.

Then our server offered to take our picture in our little car.



We stayed at DHS until about 7pm, then we took the friendship boats to the Beach club for our 7:35pm dinner at Cape May Cafe.

Here is my first plate



I didn't really care for anything on my plate. So I finished it off and went to get some shellfish.

Here is Denis plate.



He really liked everything on his plate.

Then I went and got a bucket full of snow crab.



I ate it all, it was soo good.



Then Denis went for a second plate.



Then we got a bucket of mussels and clams that we shared





The mussels and clams were really good.

Then we both had dessert. Here is Denis plate.



And here is my plate



I remember the desserts being really good, but I was soo full I couldn't finish them.

Overall, we loved Cape May. This was our favorite buffet of the whole trip.

So you might be wondering what happened. Well if you notice the picture with Denis' desserts, he had his wedding band on, well once we got on the bus to head back to DTD, he noticed he no longer had it on.

Before we got to DTD and headed back to Cape May, it took about an hour. Denis had gone to the bathroom to wash his hands and they were real handtowels you used to wipe your hands. He figured that's where he lost it. He thinks it slipped off when he wiped his hands. When we got back to the restaurant we looked everywhere and Denis went to check the basket, but they had emptied the dirty towels. We spoke to the restaurant manager who took down our information and she was going to check where they brought the towels.

So we headed back to our resort at like 11pm with no ring. Once we got to our room, we had a voicemail from her and they had gone thru everything at textiles and no one found the ring. We filled out a lost and found card at the Beach Club, but I think it's long gone. Oh well, it last about a week and a half.

Oh my!!! I am so sorry to hear about the lost ring!

Rings and bathrooms can be a problem - you want to take them off to wipe your hands so it is easy to forget them. Plus your DH wasn't quite used to it yet!

Tell him NEXT time the ring goes in his nose!!!!!!!!! (just teasing)

I'm glad you are taking it in stride - I've been married 24 years and much worse can happen ... plus all the good stuff too!!!!!!!!!!!

Cape May Cafe looks awesome! I've heard so many negative reviews, but how can you mess up snow crab legs? As long as they have those and mussels, I would be really happy.

Sorry about DH's ring! This weekend we just purchased DH's 3rd ring. This time we got him one that was on sale at Kmart. Not spending the big bucks anymore! We also got it a 1/2 size smaller, hoping that maybe it will stay where it's supposed to this time.

Fantastic reviews!

I often find that Disney deserts look a lot better than they turn out to be, I am glad you found so many you liked!

I am so sorry about DH's wedding ring! These things happen I guess, but it's still annoying!
