Hi Ellen,
I can see your tickers now. I guess they took a vacation for a short while.

What is the name of the restaurant Loni likes in St. Augustine?

What only 7 (or is it 8) trips planned? My spouse says we travel twice as much as he likes and half as much as I like. He is wrong, I would be traveling every month if I could.

I am having a crisis here. I'm leaving for Atlanta in 11 days ( okay just planned the trip today--sis is in ATL) I soooooo want to drive on down to Orlando for a day. What's 8 hours when you have driven 20 right? LOL. Tim thinks I am NUTS.

I am surprised that Vero is designed like BCV on the inside - I guess alot of them are like that really -
Your lunch looked delicious - have to try the veggie melt
I'm glad you got your computer back - I can't believe the nerve of that guy - the reason he had to make the trip was because he gave you lousy service to begin with!

Wow I've seen EoS busy but never like that. I can't even imagine. You lunch looked good too though.

Glad you got your computer back. I think $20 was generous considering his attitude.

WPE is one o fthose places that we haven't tried, but is on my list to try in September.

Wait - didn't the limo driver drive away with YOUR computer. Shouldn't he be checking his work space. Idiot. Then demanding a tip. But, you are right, he could have sold the computer or kept it, so I guess you were pretty lucky.

Those CM's at OKW are so cute! That resort is still on my "must-stay" list. How great of them to check your luggage and print your boarding passes. That is awesome.

Lunch looks pretty good, too. Of course you were starving. You ate like crazy for a week. It's hard to go back to normal eating after that.

WPE is a GREAT counter service- it feels like a TS in a lot of ways, and the food is delicious. Next time I need to try the meatloaf...

No problem on the PMs! I hope I did help!!

Loni loves the Columbia Restaurant- it has been in business since 1905, and she had a cookbook with her the last time we were hanging at the pool at AKV in September- there is also a Columbia in Celebration. I think it's pretty pricey, but she loves it and wants to go with me someday.

My DH feels the same way about vacations, I think. And I feel the same way you do! And yea....I guess that's alot of planned trips, but I need something to look forward to always...

I thought the same thing when I first saw it- it's like the BC, but, why wouldn't it be? It IS different, though- the colors are different, it is more tan and green with the blue coming from the Ocean outside.

Are you still thinking about May 6th?????

He couldn't use it- it has a security lock, so I don't think he could have logged on (which provided me with some comfort) unless he had someone hack in. Definitely try WPE- Pods LOVES it!

Yes...he did...and yes...he was an idiot...but an honest idiot all the same.

I really want to go back to OKW, too- I was planning to next year, but since we bought the BW points, it will actually be LESS points to stay at the BWV in a standard room....so that's what we'll be doing, I think!

And we were starving because we had not had any real breakfast, we just packed up & threw some food at the kids, and then we waited for the idiot for so long that by the time we could eat, it was actually 2 pm....I would ALWAYS be starving in that scenario!!

Oh my gosh we are there during F&W so much that I haven't had many eats around the pavilions. But here go my faves...

1) Cheddar Cheese soup/pretzel bread (Le Cellier/Canada) No ADR? No problem (so I've heard..... we haven't tried this ourselves yet) but word around town is if you ask at the hostess desk you can get some of this to go. We'll be trying it out in May for sure!

2) School Bread (Kringla Bakery/Norway) Not just a creme filled coconut donut. Oh no...this is much much more! If you get some to go at night they make a killer breakfast the next morning!

3) Eclairs (or anything at: Boulangerie Patisserie/France) Best during illuminations snack. Unfortunately the entire park knows this and the lines are killer. Get em a little early and let them thaw out, yums!

4) Kaki Gori (kiosk/Japan) Tasty relief on a hot day! Love this variation on a snow cone!

(yes, I have a sweet tooth!)

5)Fish & Chips (Yorkshire(?) stand/UK) Love this for lunch when we do not have ADR's anywhere!

I have not visited Karamel Kuchen (sp?) yet, and even though i think it is more of a shop than a restaurant per se, but I know choclates and caramels are right up my alley (heard the caramel apple is KILLER)!

Not a lot of advice for DAK and MK but at DHS I LOVE the carrot cake cookie at the Writer's Stop, that has to be the biggest value on property too, $2.95 for a cookie that serves like 2 or 3 ppl!

Hope that helps Kara! We're going to MK this weekend, I am so stoked even though it is supposed to rain all day Sunday! Boo!

Oh, silly girl, I feel so bad that you went to all this trouble..... We KNOW where the good eats are at WDW.... I'm talking about the MAGIC!!!!! This will be our first cruise and all Ellen told me was "the chocolate stuff." Yeah, that Ellen, she can really elaborate!

Oh, and next time you are in Norway, try the almond pretzel instead of school bread..... 2DIE4!!!!

I was wondering.....LOL!!!!! Silly me, that makes much more sense! It was no trouble though, I love blabbing about WDW!

So the Magic...let's see...Onboard is quite different from the parks as there really aren't a whole lot of options, especially for snack type items.

I'm a hog for the chicken strips at Plutos, they are the same ones that used to be served at WDW CS until they cheaped out for the nuggets a few years ago. The strips taste much, much better!

There's the midnight buffet at Lumiere's on the second Formal night, that's where the chocolate fountain is. All these cruises and i have not made it to that yet!

Of course Palo..chocolate souffle is the best food item onboard IMHO. But any and everything Palo at any chance you get is always a good choice.

The pastries at Cove Cafe, they are free and are the same ones from Palo brunch.

Of course as you may have heard they will revoke your Disney Fan card if you do not order Mickey Bars, either at dinner or from room service! (free)

When we have time (which we didn't last cruise) we like to order a set of Mickey Bars and then take them to the theater for the shows. There are snack bars by the theater but those goodies have an additional charge...The big island cookies from room service are also good snacks to take to a movie or show.

THIS IS THE FIRST I'VE HEARD OF A MIDNIGHT BUFFET!!!! Jeff will be so happy! Since we've never cruised, but have heard about midnight buffets on cruises, that was what he was most excited about and then it didn't look like DCL did that. So now we have to stay up late for that! And yes, I'm also excited about Palo. We love us some good eats......

Oh, and next time you are in Norway, try the almond pretzel instead of school bread..... 2DIE4!!!!
Silly me... I thought 57 pages of elaborations was SOMETHING...but it's never enough, APPARENTLY, so here are MORE DINING SPECIFICS!!!

Oh- and I can't WAIT for the BIG Florida-DISGIRL-GEEK-OFF....happening on Sunday, May 15th, at an EPCOT near you... not that I won't be competing, too.... pretzels, school bread- I have yet to try EITHER!!! But V&A's ROCKED!!!! I CAN say THAT!

But PLEEEEEEEZ make sure I try them both this time!!! I feel so ASHAMED!!!! And hungry!

ANYWAY....MISS KARA....here's what I really liked-

Breakfast-
I love the fruit already cut into sections (like grapefruit) and any of the sandwiches. Hopefully the REAL grapefruit cutter will please stand up on your cruise, he was missing on ours- but still nice to have the fruit.

Animators-
Ahi Tuna Tartare & the Veal Chop were our faves

Palo-
Get the Pomegranate Whosee Whatsis Martini- TDF! And please remember to order it JUST THAT WAY!!!!!
ANY pizza- you MUST!!!!!!
Lobstah & Mascarpone Ravvies- another TDF, we got them in between other courses (as I believe I mentioned on page something or another.....)
Of COURSE, the chocolate souffle....
Don't get the gnocchi- if you want pillow light truly amazing gnocchi, you're gonna have to pay a visit north, and I will join you at PO in the west Village in NYC...their gnocchi makes you shun all others....

Lumiere's- best menu, best night of rotational dining IMHO (and in Gabor's HO, too)
Escargot- order LOTS! if you like snails, why skimp? Have as many of those slimy critters as you can slide down your gullet, I say! They are garlic-a-licious!!!
Lamb Shank was VEEEEEEERRRRRRRY tender and yum....
Sea Bass- Pods LOVED this!

Pirate night-
I'm not gonna lie...not our favorite meal- but the crab cake is very good, and the macadamia nut mahi is totally yummy!! Is there a shank that night, too? That might be good as well.

LOBSTAH night- aka- semi formal night and night of the hidden magical midnight buffet.
Well, my best advice is to order 2- to start. After hearing Jen's teeny tiny tale of tail I say- TAKE NO CHANCES!!! order 2 OR 3 from the start! Then order more!!! Our server said that her highest ever was 7 tails- TOP IT!!!! Nothing will make darling Ally (aka, TBP- The Beverly Pusher) more proud than to see Mom & Dad gourging themselves on FREE FOOD!!!!!

If you can get her outta that club long enough to see it happen....just sayin....

Wow...this Chardonnay I'm havin is pretty good....

Okee Dokey, what's left....Til we Meet Again...

Sesame Tuna Sashimi- now, I KNOW it's the last night, and it's FISH- RAW FREAKIN FISH....but settle down, it's all good! I make a LOT of tuna tartare, (as I'm sure you do too, Miss Kara aka Paula Dean)(aka, Miss Kara-there's-a-kitchen-in-this-house??????????)but, as I'm sure JEFF knows, alot of sushi grade fish is flash frozen, and that must have been the case here, because it was DEE-LISH-US!

Lamb Loin- Pods had this, it was very good-

Room Service-

HAVE to get (as Jen Said) Mickey bars- OMG!!!!! They are FREE!!! Well, they are a tip (we make sure to have an envelope of singles for this purpose in a drawer for the cruise....but I'm sure you already know that, Miss Disney!) or...they are at dinner EVERY night- never mentioned, but if you ask, you shall receive......)

Tuna on Brioche (REALLY, REALLY yummy)

Steak Sammie- that's the sandwich that was too far for me. I couldn't eat a steak sandwich after a cheeseburger- can you imagine?????

Cheese Tray- Ok...I have never had the pleasure. On this cruise, I went on old info from our last cruise, and passed. BIG MISTAKE!!! I saw a pic the other day- I think it would be the purrrrrrr-fect thing for happy hour on the balcony!

Go to every fast food option on the pool deck- all good ( but not PIZZA! DUHHHHHH! not.... WINNING!)

OMG, Charlie Sheehan is SUCH a ...well, you know....

Cove Cafe- GET THAT FREAKIN CARD THE FIRST DAY!!!!!!!! Pastries are FREE (whether you get the card or not- but they make a mEAN buncha coffee drinks in that place, and don't MAKE me say, "I TOLD YOU SO" when you get off that ship one punch shy of a freebie)! Sleeping over ( I mean drinking coffee) is OPTIONALLLLLLLLL!!!!!

Love the little sammies at Goofy's Galley- and I hope you know I have a fond, fond affinity for a cheeseburger from Pluto's- you DID read this TR, right???

Hmmmmmmmmm....what did I forget???? AH! My two most FAVORITE things!



Pods says, "Kara! Don't be askin no stupid questions!!!"


TB Cont'd.....You know...for Kara's enjoyment....
