Dinner, anyone?

I am very excited right now. I just booked my very first Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) ever. We had a few for our last trip, but Mellie took care of all of them, so now it's up to me. And, I used the new fancy online reservation form, so I didn't even have to talk to a human (which, frankly, at 9 pm is more my style).

You may be wondering why I made dinner reservations for a trip 6 months away. Well, I'll tell you. Because I want the Beer Cheese Soup at Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada at Epcot's World Showcase that I keep reading (and drooling) about. And, because even though it's nearly 6 months away, there were 2 dinner reservations left. Yup, 2. I checked an online calender that told me when I could make reservations (180 days out) and I could have sworn it started tomorrow, but I think I remembered wrong. Our reservation is actually at a good time - 7, but the other option was 4:30. Insane! This better be an amazing steak. Or at least a ridiculously good soup.

Thinking about this brought me around to a conversation I had with Adam yesterday - that we need to branch out while we're at Ecpot. There are several countries that we simply walk past without giving a second glance and I think that should stop.

When Noah is older, we'll hopefully enjoy taking him around to the different countries so he can do art projects and learn about other cultures. And take him on the Norway ride to see if the trolls and vikings scare him. :)
I had originally planned to write a review of the San Angel Inn, inside the Mexico pavillion where we had dinner in June, but I'm running out of time tonight. I'll just say this - it was delicious and the margeritas were as fantastic as ever. And, we enjoyed walking straight onto the boat ride with the Three Caballeros afterwards, even though Noah slept through most of it (dinner and the ride):

Happy eating!
