Nov. 21

Lunch - WPE
Dinner Mama Melrose

Nov. 22

Breakfast - Kona
Dinner - Garden Grill

Nov. 23

Lunch - Yak and Yeti CS
Dinner - Grand Floridian Cafe

Nov. 24

Breakfast - Artist Palate
Lunch - LeCellier
Dinner - WS CS

Nov. 25

Lunch - CHH or Casey's at MK
Head home

I MIGHT be interested in doing some live reports. If you let me know how ....

I did have your trip on the November list but had it starting on Nov. 22, so I'll add the extra day. And I didn't know that you had gotten your cast off early. That's great news, Susan!

You can do and send live updates a couple of different ways. You can take pics with your phone and text them to me along with a short description and maybe a comment about how well you liked it. You can also email the pics to me from your phone. Another option is to take pictures with your regular camera and then email them to me later when you have some downtime back at your resort. Any of these methods are fine with me. Oh, and I leave the content and frequency of the updates entirely up to the reporters. Although this month with the Scavenger Hunt going on, if you want to participate and earn points then you should keep an eye on the list (link in my signature), which I will update daily. I also plan to add some more potential points once the F & W Festival is over. So what do you think...are you interested?

Hi, my daughter, her BF, and I are going to be at WDW Jan 2-9 and I'd like to try doing live updates---even if I am a newbie poster. I'd love to tell you where our ADRs are, but I keep changing them!

If I can help, let me know!

Also from Dec. 27 on and throughout the month of January we need several more volunteers.

Good night everyone!
Hi! I would love to be a live reporter for November! Do you still need another one? DH and I will be at WDW from November 15th to November 23rd, staying at the Wilderness Lodge. DH and I will have the Deluxe Dining Plan, so we will be eating plenty! Halfway through our trip, his family will be meeting us there. We also have Be Our Guest reservations for 10 people on November 20th.

I am going to PM you, in case that would be better!

I am soooooo happy to have my cast off. My comfort level is 110% better !! I still can't walk much, but I will be working hard in physical therapy to get as close to normal as I can by Christmas. I will be renting a scooter for the Thanksgiving trip.

OK. I can do the live updates. I can take a picture on my phone and text it to you. Just PM me your number. It will be fun !! And when I get home, I can do a more in depth DR.

Thanks Susan! I'll send you a PM with my info. Glad to hear you're feeling better!



So with the addition of Nanabug02 and jecskc to our November Team of Live Reporters and a few others to our December team, we are now covered through December 19th. We could still use a few more reporters for the rest of that month though, plus the month of January is still wide open.

I think I can provide updates for my 12/13-12/21 trip. It is a family trip and my parents first time-- so will probably take pix of my food only(they will never understand) if you still need reporters. Everyone else has been so terrific with their reports, I thought I lend a hand.

Sounds good, krhst25! I'll get your trip added to the December list in Post #2 right away. Then I'll be in touch later this month with my info to send your updates. Thanks!

Good Monday Morning! (that's a bit of an oxymoron, isn't it? )


I don't yet have any updates today from our reporters, but I do have one from last night sent to us by Ellen (podsnel).


She was at the Animal Kingdom Lodge's...



Victoria Falls Lounge






Scottish Raspberry Lemon Drop - Hendrick's Gin, Muddles Raspberries, Fresh Lemon Juice, Agave Nectar topped with Wildberry Foam


Ellen said, "This is both tart and sweet, but not too. I like it!


Note from jabead: While this cocktail does look delicious, it unfortunately does not qualify for a Scavenger Hunt point because it is one we have seen here before. In case you don't recall, this was one of the several different cocktails that Alice BlueBonnet tried at the Victoria Falls Lounge.


Here is Alice's pic...

Our first update of the day was from Ellen (podsnel), who was at the Polynesian Resort this morning and had breakfast at...



KONA CAFE



Ellen said, "We were handed this with our menus, and I thought..ooooh Nicki (aka MickeyNicki) is gonna be soooo jelly!"







And here they are...




Pumpkin Pancakes served with pecan maple butter and sausage







Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and fruit (on the side) subbed for the breakfast meat


Ellen said, "Pods (her DH) and I split the pumpkin and macnut pancakes...both so good! But aren't the pancakes lookin a little smaller here? I didn't mind the smaller portion though, it was the right size. I don't feel like exploding as I'm walking out of here and that's a good thing!"




Steven (DH's brother) had this...




The Samoan - poached eggs with Hollandaise served over smoked pulled pork hash




Sean (Ellen's oldest son) had this...




French Toast with bacon


Ellen said, "There was another slice but he grabbed it as soon as it was put down."




Tyler (Son #2) had the famous Kona...






Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with bacon


And the usual accompaniments...




Strawberry Compote, Maple Syrup, Butter, and Ketchup???







Complimentary Birthday Cupcake


Ellen said, "I think they are going to sing to me now."



Happy Birthday Ellen!!!




Ellen's last comments regarding their meal, "Breakfast was delicious as ever! Pod's subbed fruit was all melon though. Other than that, this is my fave brekkie at WDW!"



Note from jabead: Here is great picture I found here on the DIS which shows Ellen and most of her family (except for oldest son, Sean)





Tim (youngest son), Pods, Ellen, & Tyler (son #2)

Pictured borrowed from Ellen's TR from their recent trip to Kauai & Aulani



So this update received one point for the pumpkin pancakes, one for the Samoan/French Toast entrees, and one for the "First Update of the Day"

I received a couple of updates from Candice (Candycane83) today.


Yesterday she and her DH were at Universal's Island of Adventure and had lunch at...




Mythos





Risotto of the Day - Beef Medallion & Spinach


Candice said, "Eric had this. He thought it was ok but a little salty."







Mythos Bistro Filet Sandwich


Candice said, "I liked it and thought it was worth the cost. I loved the onion rings as it added a little kick to it."
