Dining Reservation for Our Upcoming Trip

I am jump out of my skin excited that we will be leaving in just a few days for our trip to Walt Disney World.  Since it has been quite awhile since our last trip we decided to do a mix of old favorites and new restaurants for our dining reservations. Our plan is to…

Disney – ’50’s Prime Time Cafe Almost Wordless Wednesday

The ’50’s Prime Time Cafe’ reminds me so much of my parents and grandparents houses.  It is one of our most favorite places to eat just for the fun atmosphere and of course the delicious comfort food.  We had to take my parents here for dinner just to poke fun at the similar decor to…

Mama Melrose – Fantasmic! Package

Thursday, June 2, 2011 This was our first time dining at Mama Melrose.  We decided to try it to take advantage of the Fantasmic! show package.  With lunch (and early dinner) you can get a Fantasmic! reserved seating ticket if you make your advanced dining reservation (ADR) by calling Walt Disney World dining and asking…

Crystal Palace – dinner

The Crystal Palace in Walt Disney World is a family buffet located near Cinderella’s Castle.  This is a must do buffet for our family on each trip.  My family loves the Winnie the Pooh characters that come to each table while you are eating and the food is above average buffet fare. I always start…

Cosmic Ray’s Startlight Cafe

Wednesday, June 1, 2011 It had been an incredibly hot vacation.  This day the heat was 90 degrees plus humidity over 90%.  Being a true Northern family we were NOT dealing well with the heat so had switched our plans to touring late in the evening and staying at the parks with the Evening Magic…

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…

Price of Food at Walt Disney World

Lately I have been hearing complaints about the price of meals at Walt Disney World. Phrases ranging from “highway robbery” to “price gouging” seem to be the phrases I hear most often. I have never heard someone say, “I thought it was so cheap I thought I should pay more for my meals.” Over this…

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…
