    Our Last Disney Dinner – Yachtsman Steakhouse

    From EPCOT we drive over to the Yacht Club Resort for our last DDP meal. We start with an amuse-bouche I get the Farmer’s Market Salad – I love granny smith apples in a salad. Chris gets an amazing looking Caesar Salad. We wisely stick with what we love, and go out on one more order of 12-oz Prime New York Strip Steak. Chris also goes with a side of au gratin potatoes.

    WDW 2011 Day 1 – Dinner

    After the welcomed nap – we wandered out to see Coronado at night: Then trudged (heh) off to our Stupid Expensive dinner. I mean – I’ve splurged on meals back home, but the prices online for this place just floored me. How good can it be?
