I'm a HUGE creme brulee fan and am looking forward to our first visits to Coral Reef and Chefs de France next month!

You can find pistachio creme brulee at Tony's (...and I agree about it being a meh dining experience) and tropical fruit creme brulee at Citricos. Both were really yummy and I agree, the maple creme brulee at Le Cellier is great as well.

I seem to remember getting a creme brulee at Boulangerie Patisserie in France at one point but it isn't on the All Ears menu.

In regard to Tony's. My daughter loves it because she loves Lady & the Tramp but being a native NYer and now living near Philly, I can get really great, affordable italian food locally and can't rationalize choosing Tony's over almost any other MK resort area TS restaurant.

I haven't listened to the episode yet but being a former Tony's CM, I can say, I was never crazy about the food. I felt like it was a tiny bit above Olive Garden and I'm not an O.G. fan at all. I don't know if it's the sauce or what but the restaurant needs to change it's style completely.

I think there's a thread on the disboards detailing exactly the idea of 1 night with the premium dining plan for 2 days of meals/entertainment, but starting in 2012, there will be a 3 night minimum. (loopholes never last long at WDW)

There are exciting options at Flying Fish, for example, this one:

Citrus, Sesame, and Szechuan Pepper-crusted Yellowfin Tuna - Bok Choy, Tiny Carrots, Lotus Root, Snap Peas, and Honshemeji Mushrooms with an Herbaceous, Coconut, Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime, Butter, and Ginger-laced Broth $37.00

And it rocks and I have dreams about it!!!! ;-)

$'s Per Hour

Len's comment in this episode got me thinking how much my ticket costs per hour in the parks. In the UK a 14 day park hopper ticket costs 220 or about $350 at today's exchange rate.

Divide that by 14 days and 8 hours per day (maybe a little generous but hey ho) works out at $3.13 per hour

Not bad if you look it like that!

Our "must do" sit down restaurant isn't flashy or expensive, just consistently great and very convenient.

Our favorite tip for Magic Kingdom goers (after they've gotten there at rope drop and done their touring plan) is to ride the monorail around to the Polynesian and have lunch at Kona Cafe. The food is consistently great, the ambiance is incredible, and it's a great break from the park.

Afterwards, we stroll down to Captain Cook's to get our "all you can pile" Dole Whip. My technique has improved greatly to maximize my value (tip: it doesn't have to be an inverted cone shape... aim for a cylinder.)
