But before we went to Disney we had a weekend in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. We had some good ole greasy hot dogs and onion rings from the Varsity. It is an institution in Atlanta.
Then Sunday morning we headed on south to Orlando. We had reservations for Sunday night at Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion of Epcot. This was our first time to eat there. Joe really enjoyed the buffet. I liked the desserts best.
Monday took us to Hollywood Studios. Hollywood was full of Star Wars everything, including the food. The Backlot Express featured some Star Wars named foods. So you know we had to go there for lunch. For those of you that do the dining plan this was a counter service.
Then for dinner we went back to one of our favorite places 50's Prime Time Cafe. If you haven't ever eaten there, there's a few things you need to know. It is like eating in your mother or grandmother's 1950's kitchen. They have old fashioned tv's showing reruns of old shows. And the servers are your cousins or aunts. They enforce dinner table rules like no elbows on the table. It can be a lot of fun to eat there. But you need reservations.
Tuesday was a long day. We went to the Magic Kingdom for the day and stayed for the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. We got in at 1:00 am. Very long day.
Lunch was at Be Our Guest.
Now if you have never been to Be Our Guest there are a couple of things that might surprise you. Disney now uses the Magic Bands for everything. Well at BOG you order your food from a computerized stand, use your magic band to "pay", and then you find a table. There are three big rooms to chose from. Your food finds you. No number on a stand, no calling your name, nothing. They bring a cart to your table and ask if you are the Grobmyers and then they give you your food. Now think about that. Those magic bands have a locator chip in them to find you no matter which room you are in.
Dinner was at Tony's Town Square. Tony's is based on the Lady and the Tramp movie.
Wednesday actually was suppose to be Animal Kingdom day but after our late night we slept in. We ate lunch at our resort.
Dinner we went to a new favorite place Ohana's
Then dessert was Ohana bread pudding. It was pretty good but a little heavy after all of dinner.
Thursday we took the Keys to the Kingdom tour. They included lunch from Harbor House.
We both had the fish and chips. It was okay.
Thursday night we went over to the Boardwalk and had dinner at ESPN Zone.
And a Mickey gingerbread cookie from the Grand Floridian.
Friday was leaving day so we had a good bye breakfast with Pooh and friends at Crystal Palace.
This describes the lasagna.
We had a great trip and some really good meals. Hope you enjoy seeing them as well and it might help you plan where to eat the next time you go.
