I think there's a lot of dissappointment about Steakhouse 55. It was such an easy consensus from the group I was sort of amazed. The remaining choices we are not seeing a strong feeling, but it does seem Catal is in the lead.

Here is a further update of where we are at.

Peter (skier_pete) and Ulana (ukeemom) - CATAL
Rory (roryh22) - CATAL
Kim (kgibbler20) and Mary Ann - CATAL
Christy (chropistopy) and Cheryl (cherylbug) - DON'T CARE
Angie (ymxbfalcon) - DON'T CARE
Lisa (Lee Disney) and John - DON'T CARE
Melanie (Disneygrl36) and Eric - CARTHAY CIRCLE
Lori (BriarRosie) - UNDECIDED
Matt (Darthvader92) and Matt's Mom (starwood) - OUT
Toni (Disneykiwi) and Christine (brightie) - OUT


That puts us at between 10 and 13, depending on Melanie and Lori's decision.

Melanie, I'm going to try and sway you to join the group. You should choose Catal because:
(a) sure you won't have ordered off the menu at Carthay Circle, but you'll have just experienced it the night before and this will be a completely new experience,
(b) you can pick up a regular WoC fastpass that morning and
(c) you can eat alone with your husband any old time!

Hopefully you can let us know by tomorrow, cause I'm gonna make that call!

Thanks for being sweet & wanting us to join you at Catal Pete. We talked last night & I think we are going to do lunch at Carthay & do dinner at Flo's. I am hoping we can all meet up for the T party or a drink or something because I would like to see everyone that hangs around.

No worries - we will probably head over to the T-party after dinner as well, but can't say for sure. I think most of Friday Ulana and I will be wanting some "just us" time, but maybe after dinner will be up for it.

I actually just finished listening to the DIS goes West: Downtown Disney and Hotels edition, and listening to Pete (and Corey) RAVE about Catal after listening to Kevin RAVE about Catal makes me really happy with the choice if we can't get Steakhouse 55.

(We're going to do Steakhouse 55 for breakfast Saturday instead. However, I am NOT planning a group thing!)

Hey everyone. I called Catal and made a reservation for a party of 11.

Here are the folks that are included in the group:
Peter (skier_pete) and Ulana (ukeemom)
Rory (roryh22)
Kim (kgibbler20) and Mary Ann
Christy (chropistopy) and Cheryl (cherylbug)
Angie (ymxbfalcon)
Lisa (Lee Disney) and John
Lori (BriarRosie) - UNDECIDED

I know Lori was undecided, but I figure it's not like if I make it for 11 and show up with 10 they won't seat us or anything.

I made it for 6 PM. They asked me I wanted indoor seating or outdoor. The outdoor seating is a second floor patio ovelooking DTD. As I thought about it, I thought this would be a good choice. Sunset will be close to 9 PM at that time, so it should be starting to cool off in the evening but not yet really cool. The outdoor seating would seem more festive for a larger party like us.

That said, if ANYONE is objectionable to the idea, I can call back and change it to inside seating. I do not have any problem with sitting inside!

Finally, while trying to find info about the patio - I found this review on the Disney Food Blog. Another Rave:

http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2011/0...-catal-review/

Note the layout can be seen in the one shot showing the outdoor terrace areas.

I may or may not make it to chat tonight. We are going to a friend's house, and while I think we won't be out too late, I am not sure if we'll be home before 9 PM or not.

Thanks Pete for organising the reservation.

I don't think I will be on chat tonight. I'm working tomorrow and as I'm on an early shift chat is only a few hours before I need to be up for work

Thanks for the link and for taking care of the reservation for us, Pete. I read the review, and the author is definitely enthusiastic about Catal.

Hi Folks,

I truly apologize, but I completely lost track of days and missed chat tonight.

If there is anything I can do or any questions I can answer...please dont hesitate to let me know.

Did anyone get their gift card from Dreams yet? I thought we were supposed to be getting a GC.

I am so looking forward to this trip.

I thought so too. I have not received it. I guess I was thinking it would be there upon arrival.

No one has received their gift card yet...as they haven't been mailed yet.

Correction....

The gift cards will not be mailed, as we have guests coming from overseas.

The gift cards will be distributed in California.

Possibly not until you reach the Grand Californian.

Sorry for the mis-information.

Kevin, I only vaugely remember the gift card from when we booked. Can you remind us how much - and is it per person, or per booking?
