Well geesh... my sister in law was in town this weekend.... and she is the one who got us started down the Disney road... and I was telling her that we are winging it... and then I made the mistake of telling her what I have reserved for ADRs this trip and when I got to Mama Melrose she tore it down... and hubby said... but I want to go to sci-fi diner again, I loved it there... and I liked my food a lot (he had a bbq platter) Now, I specifically remember him saying it was just ok, and the ambiance is what makes it... but I won't argue about that.... so I guess I'm back to looking for a Sci-fi diner reservation around 1230p.. there is a 230pm one, but that's entirely too late for lunch for us. Good grief I should have never changed in the first place I guess. I like sci-fi, I just wanted to try something new!
I feel you! I want to try new restaurants in August, but every time I mention dining P asks for the same places: BOG breakfast, Ohana and Skipper Canteen. He knows there's at least 50 places I'd like to try but seems perfectly content to eat at the same restaurants every trip!

I just want to throw out there that my husband and I really enjoyed our meal at Mama's. I had the steak with the mac and cheese (it had pancetta in it) and it was so good. The steak was tender and flavorful and there was a excellent sauce on it. It was one of my best meals last year and the steak was just as good as the one I had at the Yachtsman Steakhouse. My husband had the saltimboca and loved that too. So personally I think it would be worth keeping. We had only eaten at Mama's once before this, maybe in 2006 or 2008, and the meal was fine but we didn't feel the need until 2018 and even then we were both reluctant. I'm glad we tried it but that's just my two cents.

After showing hubby the menu again, and making him LOOK at it.... he said that things sounded good... I guess I'll just see what happens... if mousedining finds something... I'll ask him again.... I mentioned to him we should do something NEW... The reason I did book mama's is because you said how much you liked that steak. I think he let's his sister get in his head, and she gets mad because I don't take her suggestions. Not that she isn't allowed to suggest things, but it has been proven time and again that we have very different taste from her...

My philosophy about Disney plans is very similar to baby names: you shouldn’t tell anyone the actual plan until after you have gone. Think about it: who ever says AFTER a baby is born that they don’t like the name but how many people offer their opinion before the baby has arrived? 😉

And I got the steak after reading all of @Tuvalu 's rave reviews, so if you don't like it blame her! ;):hilarious:😆

My opinion: As the planner you get a bigger vote. Eat where YOU want.

It has it's good an bad points... you know what to expect each meal, but if you don't try something new, you never add a new restaurant to your list!

Well now... a BOG lunch reservation popped up for our 2nd MK day of the trip... I booked it... I think I'm not very good at this "winging it" part... but I think it's going to be more of a mindset on my part of being flexible when in the moment... we have the reservation, but I can always move it forward in the future and cancel it. Scott really liked the braised pork.......

What the truck?!? So I couldn't remember what he had exactly, so I went to look for it, and no more braised pork? Now they have braised chicken. Nope Nope Nope! I'll hold on to the reservation to see if it comes back on the menu by September. But now I'm thinking we will probably skip it!

They changed the menu yesterday I think. Potato leek soup was replaced with a corn bisque. That soup was my favorite lunch and dinner item. *Sigh*

I'm sure their explanation is to try out something new, but must they mess with the good things? This could be the steak/Mac n cheese debacle of Mama Melrose's all over again!
That's why I'm going to keep the reservation until september... maybe enough people will complain that they will change their minds!
