My Upcoming Trip: A Preview of Eating Our Way Through the World

I’m so excited… one week from today I’ll be in the Magic Kingdom!!!  To help you get the most from the reviews I’ll be posting, here’s a basic overview of our trip:

September 16-23

2 adults, no children staying at the Caribbean Beach

On the Deluxe Dining Plan “DDP”
(3 table service meals and 2 snacks per day)

  • Each breakfast includes: Entree & non-alcoholic beverage OR full buffet
  • Each lunch/dinner includes: Appetizer, Entree, Dessert, non-alcoholic beverage OR full buffet
  • Signature Dining and Dinner Shows counts as 2 meals
  • Seem like a lot of food?  It is.  I’d only recommend the DDP if you’re foodies and big eaters (which we are) and you get a great deal (it’s expensive).

Table Service Restaurants: We booked Advanced Dining Reservations for  all of our sit down meals 180 days before our trip to get the restaurants and times we wanted.  If you do nothing else to plan your trip and food is important to you, do this.  I will  be posting about the following restaurants:

  • Cinderella’s Royal Table (Dinner, Character Meal, Signature Dining)
  • Akershus Royal Banquet Hall (Breakfast, Character Meal)
  • Coral Reef (Lunch)
  • Tokyo Dining (Dinner)
  • 50’s Prime Time Cafe (Lunch)
  • Hollywood Brown Derby (Dinner, Signature Dining)
  • Chef Mickey’s (Breakfast, Character Meal)
  • Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show (Dinner Show)
  • San Angel Inn (Lunch)
  • Artist’s Point (Dinner, Signature Dining)
  • Yak and Yeti (Lunch)
  • Ragland Road (Dinner)
  • Crystal Palace (Breakfast, Character Meal)
  • Liberty Tavern (Lunch)
  • California Grill (Dinner, Signature Dining)
  • Jiko – The Cooking Place (Dinner, Signature Dining)

Quick Serve and Snacks:  We will be eating 3 quick serve or unplanned sit down lunches and 4 quick serve or unplanned sit down breakfasts.  We get 2 snack credits per day, some of which will probably go towards breakfasts, etc.

That’s it!  I’ll try to post a photo and review of each meal, plus any special tips for vegans at each restaurant.   Bon Appetit!
