[QUOTE=bethishooked;1141183]First off, well wishes to Mike for a speedy recovery! And, what a way to celebrate him being good as new with a trip to Disney!
We have a House of Blues here in Chicago, and quite popular. Honestly don’t know if they are the same, but I say go for it. Try something new. One thing I’ve learned about researching restuarants, it works better for me to just try it. I must have odd tastes, because everytime I think a meal was awesome, I see everything negative. And, then we try something that everyone is going on and on about, and I end up saying “I don’t get it!” So, you are doing the right thing. Keep to the ones you know and love, and try something new here and there.
Glad you made the decision to do the extended trip. Take the opportunity while you can as coming from a Mom with two boys in college, DH and I have pretty much done trips alone, seeing their schedules are so busy with school, and then when they have time off, they are working.[/QUOTE]
I almost didn’t book the first part of the trip with Nate after Mike’s surgery because I didn’t want to spend the extra money but I finally decided to just do it, Nate will be 16 and we may never have this chance again. The medical bills (ambulance to local hospital, ER, ambulance to another hospital, another ER, surgery, and PT) will get paid but I can’t go back in time once Nate is grown up. I’m going to enjoy those few days alone.
I agree about trying a restaurant, the menu has something for each one of us so that alone makes it fine. There has only been one restaurant at WDW that I thought was so bad I won’t ever return and couldn’t eat my meal but we’ve been fine at every other place we have tried. And it’s only one meal, it’s not the end of the world if it’s not perfect.
