Talking Olympic Eating With Team GB ** COMPLETED - WDW & DCL**

Introduction

Hey everyone

So I’ve been back in the wet and windy UK for a couple of weeks now and I have just about managed to get my chin off the floor and stop my bottom lip for sticking out so let’s get this dining review started

When?

May 12th – May 26th 2012

Where?

12th – 19th May – The Disney Fantasy

19th – 26th May – Saratoga Springs

I’ll concentrate on the WDW portion of the trip for this review but just a quick note to say, on the whole, the food on The Fantasy exceeded expections (Remy and Palo were just incredible )

Who?



Me (44) years old (argh how the hell did that happen )

The main, OK, the only ‘planner and laminator’ of our trips and lover of WDW, DCL, sweet treats and margaritas (although probably not quite in that order ). I don’t eat meat but I do eat fish

DH (46)

Totally goes with the flow of my over planning and is a wonderful travel partner

His favourite drink is an ice cold coke and he is the carnivore of the family

What?

No dining plan this time as we thought that after spending 7 nights on a cruise we would probably not be in the mood for a ton of food (erm we still ate a ton of food ) and for the first time on one of our trips we didn’t do any signature dining (we cancelled our one and only reservation, Citricos, as we just weren’t ‘feeling it’)

Any-hoo, when I was finally dragged off the ship (I don’t want to goooooooooo ) and armed with a nice long list of ‘must do snacks’ we hit the World and were ready to roll ……………………. I’d love it if you would roll along with us

Linda - I'm excited to hear all about it! The food, the treats, and the margaritas (perhaps not in that order ) I'd love to hear about your Fantasy cruise as well.

I'm looking forward to hearing it all!

Swit swoo, don't you scrub up nicely

Really looking forward to this! Count me in for Fantasy food also. In fact, the more pictures of the Fantasy, the better.
