Since I seem to have no trip reminders to announce this morning, I decided that...


It's recruitment time again!!!

First I would like to thank all of you who volunteered last week after my plea for help.

Although we now have good coverage for the next 3 weeks, from now through Nov. 12 (except for the last few days of October, when we could use one more reporter), we still need more people to do live updates for the remainder of the month of November. However, if your trip does fall in the next three weeks and you want to get in on the live food porn fun then I would not turn down your offer...'cause there is always room for one more. And I'm also still recruiting for the entire month of December.

So anyway, if you are going to Disney World in November or December, please consider joining our Live Reporting Team! Hopefully it would be both easy and fun, as all you have to do is snap a few pics with your cell phone and either text or email them to me at your convenience. Or I've also had reporters take pics with their regular cameras and email them to me whenever they have some downtime back at their resorts. So whatever works best for you, works fine for me! And of course, there are no rules regarding your updates. They can be a single picture and short description or full dining reviews of your meals. You can send frequent updates throughout the day, save them up and send several when you have the time, or just send a few periodically during your trip whenever the mood strikes you! Whatever you send our way would be greatly appreciated!

Paula did some investigative reporting for us this morning at the Wilderness Lodge's...


Roaring Forks



Thanks to Paula, we can now debunk the rumor which I believe was reported recently on the Disney Food Blog (a normally reliable website for Disney World food information).
It was reported that Roaring Forks would no longer be serving the various kinds of Mickey waffles. (see my edit at bottom)


Well, here is the picture of the Roaring Forks sign that Paula took for us this morning...








And another breakfast menu pic, just in case Mickey waffles aren't your thing...








And as further evidence of the falseness of this rumor, Paula is currently enjoying this plate of deliciousness...






Bananas Foster Waffles
Mickey Waffles with warm Bananas in a Buttered Rum-Flavored Sauce




So thanks Paula for your excellent investigative reporting work!
Oh, and enjoy those Mickey waffles...they look heavenly!

ETA: I just went to the Disney Food Blog website to find the link to where they announced in August that the Mickey waffles were no longer going to be offered at Roaring Forks. The article now specifies that only the "Wilderness waffles" were not going to be served (now only at Whispering Canyon). I'm fairly certain though that originally they did not specify that the change was for the "Wilderness" variety only. Anyway, here is the LINK to their article in case anyone is interested.

I've been a Dining Review lurker for awhile now. I can sign up to take a stab at it. We'll be there November 29th-December 8th... I'm nervous! I see such great reviews from people (shout out to emmysmommy and DonaldDoleWhip)..I hope I can live up to the great job so far on this thread.

Thanks so much for coming out of "lurkdom" (is that a word??? ) to offer to do live updates for us. And no need to be nervous about it, 'cause whatever you are able to send our way will be just fine and much appreciated! I'll add you to the November list and send you a PM with my info.
