    Hey Mo! What’s good to eat?

    Well, that describes WDW in a nutshell now, doesn't it.

    Hey Mo! What’s good to eat?

    Agreed. If we don't eat at Skippers (which we like, my wife and I usually get an order of the shu mai dumplings and split a steak salad) we will go somewhere on the monorail. If the kids are with us we'll sometimes grab the spicy chicken waffles at Liberty Square, or eat at Pecos Bill's (which is a lot like Chipotle now, to be honest)

    Hey Mo! What’s good to eat?

    My personal favorites: Disney Springs: Boathouse - dockside bar it possible. If that's busy, try to get an outside seat at the Hangar Bar next door. Both overlook the amphicar launch and the water. Great sunsets. Raglan Road - just because. Morimoto Asia - sushi bar or the main ribbon bar inside. They also have outdoor seating overlooking the 'spring' of DS. I've heard good things about Paddlefish and Wine Bar George, those are on the list if we get back this fall for food & wine. And Mo has a permanent seat at Dockside Margaritas. Resorts: Geyser Point - hands down my favorite outside bar/casual dining. California Grill bar area - solid #2 Tiki Terrace at the Poly - great for afternoons, if the weather is gross you can go check out the Kona Cafe or the bar outside 'oHana. Hurricane Hannah's at the Y&B club or the Big River Grille if you're over by EPCOT. Parks: Animal Kingdom: Nomad Lounge. EPCOT: We really don't have a favorite there for a quick dining option, other than to grab a beer and some fish & chips from the cart outside the Rose & Crown and watch the band play in the garden at the UK Pavilion. Hollywood Studios: The Baseline tap house, or if you want a meal instead of appetizers hit up the Tune In Lounge at the 50's prime time diner or the outside bar area next to the Hollywood Brown Derby. Both have a slightly modified menu of the restaurants they are attached to. MK: Skipper Canteen, you can usually get a walk up reservation there. The dining options at MK are pretty limited, honestly. Where are you staying?

    WWW2019 The Womenz are no longer "Roughing it"

    I like the conference center lobby behind Y&B. It's got good wifi and is usually pretty quiet. I've gotten some great work done there.

    We’re Done

    Yep. we're pretty much done with it at this point. I don't see us making another family trip there in the near future. My wife and I will probably fly down with friends to do a day or two at Food & Wine once in a while, but with kids in college and many other options for trips the costs just aren't worth it. Maybe after the 50th and the dust settles on some of the new attractions we'll consider it, but we've had a great time the past few years just exploring different parts of the country (even though we snuck in a visit to the DVC in Hilton Head a couple of weeks ago for a dole whip - didn't stay there though). Our older two did make us promise that after they turned 21 we'd go back so they could experience EPCOT from that perspective, though. 🥨🍹🍺

    DVC Hilton Head question

    We had a great time on HHI last week, and it only took us three tries to get a dole whip! First time, we stopped at the DVC lobby and they waved us through, but we got to the QS five minutes after they closed. The next day we walked down to the beach house and the side window was already closed for the day. We went back the next day for lunch and got our dole whips (mine with rum, yum). Our kids biked there a few times for DW during the week. We really enjoyed the beaches there and it was a nice surprise to get a little Disney feel in while we were there.

    DVC Hilton Head question

    We are renting a condo in Palmetto Dunes, and their beach house is near the Disney one. We're looking forward to our stay on HHI, and the info I've gotten from others is that they normally allow visitors (you have to check in at the front desk) to the resort as long as there is not an event going on, and they can visit the mercantile and the restaurant if it's open.

    DVC Hilton Head question

    Sorry - I should have said we're not staying there but want to check the place out.

    DVC Hilton Head question

    Hi all - We're heading to HHI this month and wanted to know if visitors can stop by the resort there to check things out. Do you have to be a guest? Or can a visitor maybe grab a bite to eat or something from the mercantile shop there? I have heard rumours of Dole Whip availability...

    River Country

    Looks like wetland pretreatment basins. Mostly used for stormwater and surface runoff to catch sediment or other particulates, IIRC. So, not sewers, but possibly mosquitos.

    Disney's Discovery Lodge, not River Country

    As i said in the other thread,

    River Country

    I'm surprised there is no discussion of the cr*ppy name they announced for this new resort - " Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge " Which is horrible. I didn't mind the name that was being tossed around before, "Disney's Discovery Lodge" - that at least made some sense given the location. Awful, awful, awful. This whole project makes my stomach turn. https://wdwnt.com/2018/11/breaking-new-bay-lake-resort-to-be-named-reflections-a-disney-lakeside-resort/

    River Country

    Not gonna wade into the argument, I'm just going to jump in with both feet. The issue isn't with Florida residents, or even local residents, that are paying to stay at the fort. The big issue that has always been a problem at this location is locals coming in to the resort (yes, I will use that word) and utilizing the amenities - the pools, sports/recreation areas, and free parking for WDW - without paying to stay there. For a long time it has been a not-so-secret spot for CM's, CM's families and other locals 'in the know' to come and freeload. Try using the Meadows pool on a weekend, and good luck grabbing a pavilion in the rec area. It's also an issue with 'guests' in some of the loops - having way more than the allowed number of people staying there while Disney turns a blind eye. I don't think anyone here has an issue with people that have paid to be there, no matter where they are from.
