Plate from lower left (clockwise): red potatoes, peel-and-eat shrimp, paella, roasted root vegetables, and clams.

Cape May Cafe

Trip Report – Tuesday, May 31, 2011 It has been many years since we last had dinner at Cape May Cafe and after reading mixed reviews on-line I knew I needed to go back and find out if it really had changed much. I love going to the Beach Club Resort as it is always…

La Hacienda de San Angel

May 30, 2011 This was one of the dinners we were looking most forward to as it was a new restaurant in Epcot, World Showcase and we were going to be in the restaurant during the Illuminations show. We arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes early for our 8:00 pm advanced dining reservations (ADR).  There…

Chef Mickey’s – Dinner

May 29, 2011 I booked Chef Mickey for our arrival night dinner as we were planning on arriving at Walt Disney World about 1:00 pm and were hoping our room would be ready for us to relax in a bit before we headed out to the parks. Magic Kingdom was open on this night until…

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

When I was making my ADRs for our May trip I decided to take on some of the most despised restaurants (with a few new restaurants) in Walt Disney World on this trip . After reading The DIS Boards and internet reviews we finally have our list ready to go. This is also our first…

Our Dining Plan for October

Muppet Vision 3-D So for most people planning a Walt Disney World trip 70 days out is not an overwhelming thought. For the compulsive planners, like me, I have already missed the first day of the 180 day window to make my Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) and we are going during the FREE DINING promotional…

Le Cellier to Become 2 Credits on the Disney Dining Plan

Walt Disney World has recently announced, after much speculation, that Le Cellier will become a 2 credit restaurant on the Walt Disney World Dining Plan during dinner hours. This change will not take place until March 1, 2011, but for those making Advanced Dining Reservation plans this may cause some to rethink their dining plans….

Biergarten – Dinner

December 8, 2009 Our reservations for the Biergarten were for 5:30 pm. We arrived 15 minutes early and had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time so there was plenty of time to start off our meal with a beer while seated underneath the giant cuckoo clock in Germany. There were six in our…

Tony’s Town Square – Dinner

December 7, 2009 The last time we ate at Tony’s Town Square restaurant my daughter was 18 months old and there were Winnie the Pooh characters there because Crystal Palace was being refurbished. This trip my daughter is 9 and we have added a 6 year old son since then. So it has been a…

Raglan Road – Dinner

December 9, 2009 Raglan Road is one place that we have been interested in trying for quite some time but could never just seem to get to Downtown Disney for dinner. We specially planned this whole day around our dinner reservations. Raglan Road is modeled after an Irish Pub and then Disneyfied. We arrived 15…

Hollywood & Vine – Dinner

December 6, 2009 It is our first evening in Walt Disney World and I booked this meal with great trepidation. I had read such mixed reviews on it that I finally decided I needed to find out for myself what the real story was. Our reservations were for a dinner at 5:35 pm. There are…

We are two weeks away from our next vacation to Walt Disney World. This is a Christmas present for our children and it will be a complete surprise to them. They have been asking when our next trip will be and we have been telling them how we are setting up a Grand Gathering Family…
