Unfortunately, parts of our meal felt out of sync, and there were lags in service time. My husband's red wine arrived close to the end of the meal, which wasn't the best timing. Terri PetersAt the beginning of our meal, my husband ordered Champagne with his oyster course and a glass of red wine with his steak. When we dine out with our kids, we prefer to talk with them, not shout over music to be heard. I also think STK may not be the best dining option for parents of small kids with sensory issues because it can be a little overwhelming.

I tried giant cookies at two bakeries in Disney Springs to see which one had the best treats. Gideon's Bakehouse and The Cookie Bar have similar prices, but wait times at Gideon's were longer. Ever since Gideon's Bakehouse opened at Disney Springs in 2021, I've heard nothing but good things about its massive, ½-pound cookies. Recently, I started hearing buzz about a new cookie destination at Disney Springs: The Cookie Bar at Summer House on the Lake. The sit-down restaurant opened its Disney Springs location in 2023, and with it came the chain's cookie-filled bakery.

Although there were things I enjoyed about both chain restaurants, if I had to repeat the meal over, I'd go to Hooters. Terri PetersThere were things I enjoyed about both Hooters and Buffalo Wild Wings but, if I had to order the same meal again, I'd return to Hooters with one slight change: I'd order the naked wings instead of the breaded ones. Overall, my pick for the best hot wings at Hooters would be naked wings with 3 Mile Island sauce all the way. Still, there were places Buffalo Wild Wings fell flat — it was hard to ignore those disappointing mozzarella sticks. I'd return to both restaurants, though.

I tried to get a "dinner box" from McDonald's after seeing a TikTok user get tons of food for $12. But "dinner box" deals vary by location — franchisees decide if and how they'll offer them.
