I never tried to take anything home from the buffet but sometimes, if we are going right back to our room, I will take the table service desserts (included w/the dining plan) with me to eat the next day for breakfast or something.
Last time we ate at Whispering Canyon Cafe there was a table of four adults next to us and they all ordered the ‘family style’ meal, which is basically all you can eat at the table. Towards the end I heard one of the women ask the server for foil 'cause it appeared to me that she wanted to wrap up the whole platter that the waitress just brought to the table. I didn’t hear the server’s reply BUT she returned about 3 minutes later with the tiniest piece of tin foil you’ve ever seen. :laugh:
Anyway, I understand your point but I think table service restaurants will more gladly pack your leftovers. Most buffets have a more ‘if you can’t eat it then don’t take more on your plate’ philosophy.
Which restaurant are you talking about?
