Here are a few of our favorites…

6. You choose your hotel based on what restaurants you can walk to.

How is this not a critical part of the planning process?

    Ok I save my priemium Bar wrappers and have them framed in my kitchen! Need I say more. See you in November:)

  2. Kathy says

    Change flights for reservations? Who does that? We had ADR’s before we have flights and even before we have a room reservation every time! Haha. We don’t plan really far in advance so no 180 days but we always get to eat where we want to! We did pick our resort this year bc of food. We’ll be there for F&W so we’re staying as close as we can get…Beach Club! We are DEFINITELY Disney food fans. Except school bread as we don’t like coconut.

  3. Katie says

    What a relief- the only Disney addiction quiz I’ve failed. Of course, the only reason I don’t do these things is because we return so many times that I don’t worry about fitting it all in on every trip.

    Can you do a list especially for Disneyland? I can think if quite a few ways you would know if you were a FLAG foodie :)

  5. says

    Whew, we thought we were the only ones(my cousin & I)….those who know us just don’t understand….ADR all the way! BE Our Guest! replaced the #1 Le Cellier(now #2) BUT, where was the #11. Daily Disney Rice Krispy treats?(in any form)-we’ve been known to drool at the bake shop watching the tons of rice krispies & marshmallows being stirred!

  6. Jen says

    Whew! Only a couple of these describe me! And I was beginning to think I was going overboard for my next vacation.

  7. Kat says

    My husband & I passed with flying colors! Def Disney Foodies! Yes, we have changed our flights, & yes I make many Disney Dishes at home. If I can’t find the recipe, I figure it out. I make both Cheeseburger & Philly Steak flatbreds(SSR), Butternut Squash Soup & Chocolate Souffle( DCL), Cheddar Cheese Soup(Le Cellier), French Onion Soup(Le Chef’s de France), are some of my favorites. I also make PBJ Milkshakes(50’s Prime Time), Cotton Tini(T-Rex). We almost always plan our meals first, & then which park to visit or our activities around that.
    Our trips now center more around eating than anything else!

    I need to know when the next ”Snack Attack” will be….need to plan my next major trip around that !

  9. Angela B. says

    I’m always in search of a dole whip…I have stopped at Disneyland to only get a …Dole Whip

  10. Glory says

    We’re doing a big family trip & my brother is going for the first time. He was upset that I was making 180 day ARD’s. He wanted to ‘just chill & go with the flow’. I laughed at his newness. Guess who got BoG ADR’s. :-)

    Hi there. So we go to the parks for a weekend every month (you may remember me as I’ve e-mailed you previously). My husband and I have a CM friend that works at BOG and gets us in without us having to make reservations. Today we wanted to snack for lunch so we could eat our entire BOG dinner. Went on your site to read reviews about the “turkey legs” as we’ve never tried them. Was not impressed about the mixed reviews. We asked a CM friend if they had ever tried the turkey legs. Her response? They ARE NOT turkey legs, they are EMU legs. Thought you should be aware of this and possibly investigate. We trust this 30+ service WDW CM. But your following may not take our word. The comments about the white muscle in the leg that was gross indicates the Emu, which spends most of their time running at top speeds. We will never eat this “turkey” leg, and thought your readers would appreciate knowing that they are not eating turkey. Thanks for a great blog!


  12. Sarah C. says

    Guilty of most of those. I ALWAYS plan our trips around the restaurant reservations. How do you not do it that way?! Utterly ridiculous. :-) oh and we have atleast one family movie night a week, Disney movie, themed food, one of my favorites– Lady and the Tramp, spaghetti and meatballs and tiramisu, checkered tablecloth and all.:-) :-) :-)

  13. says

    Hi Natalie! Thanks for your comment. Disney has stated officially that they are indeed turkey legs. The Emu/Ostrich rumors have been put to rest.

  14. Sherron says

    O, AJ, Rice Krispie treats have to be on this list. I won’t make them at home or buy them anywhere else. Those a WDW to me!
    Also, everything else on your list!
    And now, thanks to Beth Z, my office wall is getting a new piece of art!

  15. Paul says

    Love the list. Passion causes rambling, my apologies… Suggest ice cream cookie sandwich at MK And Cobb salad at Hollywood Brown Derby. Sushi at Wolfgang Pucks. LOVE eating at the bar at Tune-in lounge adjacent to Prime Time at studios .Favorite Disney restaurant hands down is Flying Fish (Boardwalk) every visit must include FF. Sugest dining at bar, VERY limited seating, at Narcoosses (grand Floridian) and hope you are served by Sergio. Our vote for best bar on property? The Wave at Contemporary. Humble suggests as I know we must have our personal favorites.
    What is school bread please?

  16. says

    Paul — Thanks for your awesome suggestions! Here’s our post on school bread, one of our favorite snacks that you’ll find in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. Hope you have a chance to try it!
