Me too - it was all so much fun! (and I'm also happy that we got to meet Betsy and Kristen as well! You should definitely elaborate on those encounters in your trip report )

In any case, I haven't eaten at Cosmic Rays in many years, but your review so far would make me consider it again if we were in that area of the park when it's time to eat. Maybe I should wait for part 2 though before I make that decision? The last few trips, we've stuck to CHH or Pecos Bills (which I'm not a fan of btw).
Ha!! That is the problem with reading dining reviews late at night! Keep reading for more....

Brenda the photo of Em's cheeseburger is making me hungry.

Where R U Brenda. You left us with a cliff hanger
Hi there!! You had excellent guesses and in fact one of them were correct!!! Yay!

Hi there Pinkgirl! Ahhhh Deluxe dining! I've never tried CHH and I do love shrimp! Glad to see you here.

I'm with everyone else wanting to know who #4 was.
I love the BBQ pork sandwich at Flame Tree BBQ. How does it compare to Cosmic Rays if you have had both?? I think now I am ready to expand my horizons at Cosmic Rays.

Oh, and you leave in just a few days! You deserve this ---->>

I know what you mean... sometimes only a burger will do. I loved your Dismeet review/post!!! Awesome. And yes, I think you knew too.

Awww.. you are so sweet. I want to make you one of my honorary kids. But then I'd have to tell you to go do your homework and to not stay up so late on a school night!!!!

Seriously though... I was so wonderful and it still puts a smile on my face to see the photos.

They do toppings bars good! Especially since they have more than condiments and lettuce/tomato/pickles.

Yes, so great! And the fries are so thick and delicious.

Hi Barb!! You know I would eventually post it. I kept hesitating because I didn't want to ruin the mystery of Mr. DDW!! But rest assured, he was fine with it.

How great that you both were able to meet. Hopefully DDW isn't ruined and now craving CS burgers and chili cheese fries. I would miss the signature restaurant reviews terribly.

I'll finish my homework later, alright? Just leave me alone!

Actually, I've been multitasking this whole time - I might even go to sleep by 1am tonight. (but class starts at 9 every single day, so I have to be out of my room by 8:40. It's always a struggle )

Yes, definitetly! I could also post the photo of Betsy here since I know she has an active dining review here.

This is a preview for only those on the Dining Boards:

After DDW, my family and I got drenched on Splash Mtn (not only were we seated in the front but we went down the flume right when it started to downpour) we had the pleasure of meeting Betsy (PrincessBetsy.)

DonaldDoleWhip, Princess Besty, and Emmysmommy


Here's a link to Betsy's ongoing DCP Dining Review.

Here's the link to Mr. DDW's current DR.

Awesome updates Brenda and DDW (and, yay, I was right )

I still think it is so cool that you guys hung out together at Magic Kingdom and had dinner together

However, I am practically crying now because I am at work and can't see any of the photos so I have to wait till I get home

Great part 2! That's so fun that you got to meet and eat with the famous DDW! Love the Donald shirt btw.

Ok bacon cheeseburger and chili fries... I guess Cosmic Rays is on the list of acceptable CS now. Lol. Sounds like the place is right up DH's alley. But I'm still going to force him to eat at CHH with me too. Now I'm so excited for our free QSDP in December.

What an epic dismeet! Not only do we get to see the face behind DDW's wonderful reviews but we also get to see him review a CS burger and chili cheese fries.

That picture of all of you soaked from Splash is pure Disney .

What a great picture! Considering how very photogenic DDW is, its a surprise he has been in hiding so long.

Still so hard to believe someone so young has such an incredibly mature palate and ability to communicate. DDW, your mom must be so proud to have a son like you!

I completely agree. It's almost impossible to remember his age when reading his reviews, which always made me picture a sort of Geoffrey Zakarian figure. He really is just a normal, friendly, handsome young man! And I'll stop now before I start virtually pinching his cheeks like a deranged aunt. I still hope that someday my taste-buds grow to be as diverse as his!

I kind of never want Brenda's report to end, at this point. Can we start a fund to just keep her at Disney year-round and serve as the review board liason?
