ADR Selections

So it is my ADR day on the 26th March and I think I have narrowed it down on what to book and only need to sort the when during our 14 days.

My question is one probably a lot of people have asked before, but I am starting to feel the pressure of the planning and trying to fit as much as possible in knowing that this is probably going to be our first trip (as adults) and last by ourselves (hopefully) to Disney for quite a while.

So my question is from my selections is there any you would not bother with or any that I have missed off that would be a shame to miss off. I know I can't try everywhere and we have the QS dining plan.

BOG - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Beaches and Cream - Sundaes
50's Prime Time Cafe - Lunch
Sci Fi Diner - Lunch
Raglan Road - Dinner

Any help would be much appreciated.

I am still a bit sceptical if I would be doing to much instead of trying other places in the park I know I want to do the breakfast for getting in the park early. Thanks

I love BOG for breakfast and lunch; it is not QS for dinner though. Beaches and Cream, Prime Time, Sci-Fi and Raglan Road are not QS either, so I am just not sure how many meals you are paying out of pocket for. We usually get the QS plan and pay out of pocket for one or two TS meals per trip.

I have really enjoyed the QS places at the resorts more than in the parks. I feel like it is much more variety than the typical chicken tenders, burgers and fries that you see a lot inside the parks. We love the Contempo Cafe, Captain Cook's and Sunshine Seasons (in Epcot). We have also eaten at the QS place at Animal Kingdom Lodge (can't remember the name off hand), and it was quite good!

We would be paying OOP for the TS which is why I am trying to limit it to the must do's. I have also made a list of QS that I really want to try I probably should of put that on:
Cosmic Rays
Sunshine Season
Wolf Gang Puck Express
Restaurantauraus
Flame Tree Bbq
Yak & Yeti

Thank you so much your advice.

I am going to confess I literally didn't have a clue about dining so I stalked everyone's trip reports and tried to include places i've seen mentioned a lot. I plan on eating as much as I can ha!

The BOG lunch was one of my favorites, and Wolf Gang Puck Express has the best meatloaf I have ever tasted! I like Pinocchio Village Haus just for the cool view of It's a Small World. The food is pretty standard QS fare though. Tangierine Cafe in Morrocco was delicious also.

I probably wouldn't do BOG for three meals.

I would probably hop the monorail over to the Poly mid-afternoon for lunch and eat at Captain Cooks. It's quick service, but the food is phenomenal - the pulled pork nachos are to die for.

I think you have helped make my mind up that I am definitely going to drop BOG for dinner it will save us about $100 and I love pulled pork so I might have to look into this Smile Thanks !

Well in our case, we wouldn't do BOG for breakfast or lunch, neither were worth the money and food was not good at all. Dinner there was pretty good though and we have done that several times.

Thank you for sharing, I think with us having the QSDP we will definitely be doing the Breakfast especially with being able to get into the park earlier.
