It’s not our fault!! We, as Oldies, sometimes get a little set in our ways and when it comes to food and restaurant choices we can tend (not everyone) to always go to the same restaurants and order the same thing. At least for me it came from the way we ate when I was a child. I’m not complaining, the food was very nutritious and my Mom was a great cook – BUT – Wednesday was always Prince Spaghetti day, Friday was always Fish, Saturday was always Franks and Beans, etc. etc. etc!!! See where I’m coming from? That’s why when we find something we really like we go back for the same thing time after time. For a lot of my fellow Oldies, this continues on their Walt Disney World vacations and they go to the same restaurants on every visit.
When you consider the sheer number of excellent restaurants at Walt Disney World, it’s a shame to always go back to the same ones, and only those restaurants each time you vacation there. We do have a lot of favorites and some of them are never miss – Liberty Tree Tavern, The Plaza Restaurant, 50’s Prime Time, San Angel Inn, Tutto Italia – these are a few of the ones we always choose. BUT – we always try to add at least two new restaurants each visit. In 2009 we tried Restaurant Marrakesh and will dine there many times in the future. We also tried Tony’s Town Square and will probably not try it again; not bad but the food was very bland. In October we are looking forward to trying Kouzzina, La Hacienda De San Angel, and Via Napoli to see which one or ones will make the “favorites list”.
Fellow Seniors, take a chance and try something new. If not a new restaurant, at least order something different at your favorites. However, don’t miss out on an opportunity to give a new restaurant a try, I don’t think you will regret it. We have eaten at most of the Table Service restaurants at Walt Disney World and have never found the food to be overly spiced or too exotic. My Wife is very particular about what she eats, she only likes regular food. She has enjoyed the food just about everywhere. They won’t feed you deep fried goat ears anywhere at Disney!!
Do yourself a huge favor and as the title says, “Take A Chance”. I’m positive you will find something you like. Before you make your Advance Dining Reservations you can check out the menus on AllEars.net and then decide. You just might be surprised. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!
