[QUOTE=llama;1066693]I wouldn’t say the food at Coral Reef is bad…mostly it’s just that for the prices you are paying, it’s not up to the hype. If you get a table by the acquariums, it is lovely. We’ve never eaten lunch there, only dinner. I’ve had worse food - it was just sort of “meh”.
Prime Time can be a lot of fun if you’re up for interacting with the servers and if you get a good server. If you get a dud, then you can feel sort of left out. The food is basically pretty good - nothing fancy - “comfort food”.
A super birthday day? hmmm…well, wake up, make sure everyone makes a big fuss over you, presents are always good. Then I’d head to Kona Cafe for the one of the best breakfasts you’re going to get at WDW. Order the Tonga Toast - what the heck - its your birthday! After breakfast you can take time to wander around the Poly - it’s one of the loveliest resorts at WDW. Take the monorail to the MK and get your Birthday Button. You might not think so, but it’s nice to have everyone wishing you a happy birthday! Try some of the lessor-known but fun things, like riding the People Mover and taking in Mickey’s Philharmagic. Visit Snow White’s Wishing Well by the Castle - it’s such a quiet little place - and make a birthday wish. Make sure you don’t miss the Pirate Tutorial. OK - he’s not Johnny Depp - but he’s sure not hard on the eyes. AND it’s so much fun. If the Liberty Belle is open, take a ride. You’ll get to see a whole other side of the MK. Or take the train, right around the whole MK. To tide you over till lunch, stop for a Dole Whip in Adventureland or ice cream on Main Street. Browse through all the shops.
When it’s time for lunch, take the monorail over to Epcot. Personally I love lunch at Chefs de France. Tell them it’s your birthday and hope to get a seat in the window. You can sit and people watch and maybe, if you’re really lucky, Remy will visit your table to wish you bonne fete! Remember to order wine! You might want to pop into the shops in France and choose some lovely bubblebath.
Take in the World Showcase shows; and street entertainment. Because you’ll be missing dinner, pick up a light snack (or heavy snack or whatever you want) in one of the countries, before you head back to OKW.
Have a swim in one of the quiet pools at the resort or sink into the whirlpool tub in your suite. (a glass of wine is good here).
Enjoy Cirque de Soleil. It is magical. Once the show is over, find your way to Raglan Road for dessert (RR really knows how to create some great desserts) and a beverage and enjoy the Irish entertainment.
Stroll over to the Marketplace for some shopping. You don’t have to buy anything - or you could buy yourself something terrific. Take the ferry back to OKW.
If the night is beautiful, pour yourself a glass of wine and take it out to the patio. (you can really stretch out on the OKW patios), relax and look forward to your next fun day at WDW. (or SeaWorld - best chocolate cake in the universe; or Universal and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter). Happy Birthday.[/QUOTE]
