top ten + pin it tuesday: disney dining

Disney

Even though our next trip to WDW is 6 months away, I am already beginning to plan things (in my head). The first thing we start talking about is DINING! We will do a few favorites and try a few new places. I highly recommend allears.net for dining information, including current menus.

Our top 10 picks right now are....
(choices are subject to change and probably will)
 
1. {O'Hana} for dinner
 
'Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family. That's the way they treat you here, like family. From the time you walk in the door, you are just another cousin. This island inspired restaurant is located on the second floor of the Great Ceremonial House at Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort.
 
Disney Banana Bread Pudding With Banana Foster Topping - a guest favorite! WOW!!
 
O'Hana is a must-do. We have eaten there several times and it never disappoints.
 
'Ohana Welcome Bread
Honey Coriander Chicken Wings
Lettuce Wraps - (replaced the mixed greens)
Pork Fried Dumplings
Spicy Grilled Shrimp
Sweet and Sour Pork Loin - Prepared over an oak fire, served on skewers
Szechuan Sirloin Steak - Prepared over an oak fire, served on skewers
Noodles - tossed in terriyaki sauce
Stir Fried Vegetables
'Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode with bananas, vanilla ice cream & caramel sauce
 


2. {O'Hana} for breakfast

I did the breakfast at O'Hana during Senior Trip, but Peter and I have never done breakfast together there. I would love to fit that in too?!?

3. {Cape May Cafe'}
 
 Crab , Legs, Clams Cape May Cafe

Another must-do! We love the buffet and Beach Club Resort!

Disney's Beach Club Resort.



4. {House of Blues}

Listen to live music and dance the night away at House of Blues at Downtown Disney in the Walt Disney World Resort

We tried HoB for the first time last trip and absolutely loved it!! We love dining at Downtown Disney where there is always something going on. We love the live music, and awesome food. Peter got the best ribs there last year!

5. {Olivia's}

Olivia's restaurant at Disney's Old Key West Resort

We not only want to eat at Olivia's, but we want to check out Old Key West Resort as one of our resort hops. We try to check out at least two resorts each trip, and OKW has been on the list. Olivia's looks like a great place to eat too.....Shrimp & Grits and Key Lime Pie maybe??

Key Lime Pie from Olivia’s CafĂ© at Disney’s Old Key West Resort--looks amazing!



6. {Fulton's Crab House}

We walk by this place every year and say "someday we'll try this"....so, it's on the dining list for 2016. :O) It's signature dining so we aren't sure if we'll use 2 dining credits or just splurge and pay OOP. It's another DTD restaurant, and it may just be our arrival night dinner!

Fulton's Crab House at Downtown Disney.  Great food and Great way to get away from the Noise and Congestion of WDW

7. {Beaches & Cream}

I can't believe we still haven't been to Beaches & Cream. It's at the top of the to-do list, even if we only get ice cream!!




8. {Contempo Cafe'}

Another resort hop will be the Contemporary. The Contempo Cafe' has good counter-service lunch options, so we may try lunch here.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a Deluxe Resort hotel at Walt Disney World, located within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom on the monorail loop. Ironically, it is the oldest hotel at Walt Disney World.


9. {Capt. Cook's}

We hope to get back to CC again. The Aloha Pork Sandwich (pulled pork on pineapple-coconut bun with cheddar, Asian slaw, cucumbers, and tomatoes) was amazing!!! I still hope to try the Tonga Toast (banana-stuffed sourdough bread, battered, deep-fried and dusted with cinnamon sugar) someday! I think I'm becoming a breakfast person!

10. {Via Napoli}

This one will probably change, but I'm still dreaming about that pizza!!!!

Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria-Discover authentic Italian cooking, including hearty pastas, fresh salads and pizzas perfected in wood-burning ovens. Location : Epcot, World Showcase (Italy)
