    It`s now become a ritual for us to have our first night`s dinner at Key W Kools located on US192 which is around 10 minutes from our villa.
    On our last trip the place was being refurbished and changed into a far more "relaxed" restaurant so it will be interesting to see how things have changed when we next dine there on Tuesday....volcano permitting! :fingers:

    We usualy go to Applebees but not on the night we land the night after.

    The night we land we pop to Publix gets some bits the go and settle in the villa - we love it

    Traditionally it's always been Red Lobster but with the boy this time we may just get some Publix bits and eat at the villa.

    We don't really have a traditional first dinner. We eat wherever it strikes our fancy to book the ADR 180 days out. Unless we have the grandkids, in which case then it is normally HDDR.
