    so, its tending to be messed up until the others that made prior reservations 90 days out . Not one to complain, but lets make up our minds here .:lol: I personally dislike the 180 days myself .

    Me too. It's ridiculous how they keep flip flopping.

    Same here!
    I have problems deciding where to eat the following day without having to decide 6 months in advance!

    Whoooaaaaa! That countdown is moving fast!!!

    Yes, I'm with you. Make a few, those that you think you MUST do, and then plan your day around those few ADRs. As for the rest, really dining offsite is the way to go.

    Go to Publix and have them make their wonderful submarine sandwiches (although you can now get them in a wrap too). You choose everything you want on the roll (wheat, white, five grain...) and they wrap them nicely too. Carry them into the park, and along with a drink you have a hearty and very cost effective lunch. :yes:

    If you are here during the heat of the summer (which your timer indicates) it's a simple matter to pick up a small soft sided cooler and a cold pack and that keeps everything nice.

    Loads of non-Disney options for food. :yes: (And since the onslaught of the service and food quality destroying Dining Plan, offsite food is usually BETTER)! :eek:

    Even though it's mega hard for us to get offsite without a car, I totally agree. Offsite options cheaper, better food, better service, better value etc.

    Every time we go we tend to knock another disney restaurant off our "must do" list because it's gone downhill.

    Take the place Sir Slowhand kindly took us to, Charlies. Truly the best steak we've had out there, great place, near Disney, great service and good prices too compared to Disney! We've been a couple of times each visit since being introduced to it :yes:

    Cheesecake factory always yummy :D PF changs etc etc etc

    I think we're doing Chef Mickeys, 50s Prime Time, Teppan Edo and possibly one more.

    Dawn, with your love of crab, you have to do Joe's Crab Shack (just beyond the intersection of Cross Roads and Hotel Plaza Blvd). :yes: They have steampots with a variety of crab! Yummy! The prices are ridiculously low. :D

    Adrian doesn't do seafood - do they have "proper" food there?

    Andrew doesn't "do" seafood either, but as I recall he always found something to eat...

    Take a look at the menu here.

    Oh no. You'll want ink for that one. :yes: It's a wicked fun place, and you KNOW how fussy I am about seafood. I'll eat there! LOL. The crab is done nicely (but that's all I'll eat there). :yes: :D

    Oh no no no no no.

    If it's one of those "have to join in" places then it's off the list.

    50s Prime Time is the one exception to that.

    Nope. You do not have to join in at all. I would NEVER eat anywhere like that. You know me better!

    You can choose to if you like. The little kids often do. Seth did. :yes: But adults never have to, nor do children.

    Sometimes they do the macarena, sometimes they do other songs... I can't remember the one they did when we had Seth there (on the 12th of December) but it was more of an Irish jig sort of sound. He hopped up, put his hands on his hips and started right in dancing. We were stunned. Who knew! LOL.

    Seriously though. The servers take the middle of the floor and you can watch or not, participate or not. It's fine. :yes:
