Need Lunch Suggestion

I'll be in WDW in July to surprise my girlfriend for her birthday. I have the whole thing planned out and ADR's made for all but one meal. Lunch on our departure day. I figured at first a CS meal. Then I thought well...might as well go out with a bang, so let's do one more TS meal. We'll be in the Boardwalk area (BWI or BC..still not sure lol) so everything is pretty accessible. I already have ADR's for: 50's Primetime, Mama Melrose, Tutto Italia, Raglan Road, Tusker House (breakfast), Boma, 'Ohana, and California Grill. Any other meals we should really check out before we leave??? I'm dying to hear your suggestions!!

I'll probably wind up doing a dining plan...maybe even deluxe...so don't shy away from price or anything. I just don't think we could do another signature.

Thanks!

I think I'd look at Chefs de France or via Napoli over at Epcot for that last lunch.

What are your plans for your last day? Are you going to a park? Are you going to be relaxing at the pool? If so, then I would suggest Boardwalk Grille and Brewery.

Honestly..chefs de France and Bistros de Paris have too extravagant menus so they're out. And Via Napoli..maybe...but we're already doing Tutto Italia earlier that week.

And no....I have no idea whatsoever what we'll do on our departure day. That's half my question on this thread lol. I figured we'd go to the park we enjoyed the most. Or should I say, SHE liked the most Smile and then head to whichever lunch ADR we have with ample time.

I like to end with a meal at the Polynesian or Grand Floridian, which are both in Magic Kingdom area.

We usually hit Downtown Disney on our last day for some shopping and lunch at Wolfgang Pucks!

Hmmmmm...well...we'll be in DTD on our arrival day before and after our dinner at Raglan Road. If she wants to do more shopping then maybe, but we can do shopping at home! lol I think a park would be more exciting.

We'll be hitting Poly for Ohana 2 days before we leave for a later dinner (8pm) and we'll watch Wishes from Ohana or from the Poly beach. As far as Grand Floridian meals, nothing really appeals to us. I've seen the menus for Citricos, and Narccoosie's (sp.?) (How do you pronounce that by the way? lol) and it doesn't really fit our tastes. We're not seafood people really. But if we splurge for a Deluxe DDP, I might shove in another sig. restaurant or something. It might be a viable option!! biggrin

Are there any restaurants at the parks which are must-eat-at's?

PS: The breakfast in-room for her birthday morning...think it'd be better if we go for a more expensive character breakfast at Crystal Palace early early so we can get into the park really early? Maybe some awesome photo ops of us in front of Cinderella's Castle?!? I'm thinking the in-room would be cheaper, if we don't use a DDP, and more intimate and romantic for her birthday.

Why not do a late breakfast/brunch at Cape May? It right across the water from the Boardwalk, they have characters and the food is awesome! We ate there our last morning and it was definately worth it!

Another vote for Chef's de France, if on DDP. If not, walk over to the Dolphin and dine outside at the Cabana Bar.

OOOOooook...time to list the places I already have ADR's for lol...

-Raglan Road
-Cape May Cafe (which I heard is closed for renovations beginning July 9th, we'll go on the morning of the 8th)
-Tutto Italia
-California Grill
-Mama Melrose
-50's Primetime
-Boma
-Tusker House breakfast
-Ohana

Rose & Crown is a pretty good idea. And too much Italian food is never bad lol so Napoli is still a pretty good idea too.

Did you check out the Tea Room (Garden View Lounge) at the Grand Floridian for lunch? It's a fun, elegant experience (well as elegant as possible while wearing shorts and a tshirt LOL!)

Park must eats... hrmmm... most of my favorites are honestly at resorts. MK has Liberty Tree Tavern which many people are quite fond of, I suggest staying away from Tony's though. Yak and Yeti in AK is a favorite of mine. I really like Via Napoli in Epcot.

Well we usually like to see Magic Kingdom one more time before we leave I would suggest Liberty Tree Tavern, outside of there is Kona Cafe, The Wave, and Grand Floridian Cafe. We haven't ate at Wave but love the other two. Kona at the Poly: Great food great drinks. Grand Floridian Cafe: rose on the table, simple yet romantic, delicious.

Walk into Epcot and eat at Nine Dragons in China. It is way better than Chinese you will find elsewhere. Every time I call WDW I always ask the CM where they like best to eat. Overwhelmingly for years their response has been Nine Dragons.

Hmmm. I'm getting a little homesick. I think I will make a reservation for next month!

I echo the DTD & Wolfgang Puck. The Express in the Marketplace is a Huge Personal Favorite. Pizza, salads. . . Really good and a counter service on DDP. yay

Chefs de France is great for lunch. They have a fantastic French Onion soup, and their sandwiches are great. I'd definitely recommend that since you will be staying near Epcot.

If you want something in the Yacht/Beach/BW area, maybe the Yacht Club Galley for lunch, or even Big River Grill (but Big River is more burgers and stuff.)

If you want to do Downtown Disney--Wolfgang Puck's Cafe is good.

If you are in the MK area, and want something different--the Grand Floridian Cafe is really nice.

Good luck!!

Thanks but unfortunately Cape May is closed from July 9 for renovations. :-/

PS:I moved my trip forward...12th to 18th. Same itinerary though. We might just do some favorite rides in Epcot and/or DHS due to proximity and then relax on the Boardwalk and stuff.

Thanks everyone!

Jym's Top-7 Best WDW Lunch TS Restaurants:
7. Marrakesh
6. Wolfgang Puck Cafe
5. Tusker House
4. Coral Reef
3. Le Cellier
2. Grand Floridian Cafe
1. Sanaa

Most of these venues have more "dinner-centric" lunch menus. Less sandwiches and more real food. wink
