Our First Update of the Day was from emmebear.



Here is a pic of Emme...







All ready for their dinner at...








First the menu pics...




Menu as of 11-23-12






Cocktail Menu



emmebear had a friend join them for this dinner and they were celebrating the 8 year anniversary of their friendship, for which they received this...




Complimentary Glass of Champagne




They started their meal with this...




Lamb Gyro Flatbread
with Handcrafted Gyro Meat, Feta Cheese, and Marinated Vegetables



emmebear said, "This was flavorful but soggy. It was a very generous portion. I wish we had tried something else besides the lamb gyro. We were debating with the gnocchi too."





They also had this...




Spicy Kazan Roll with Crab, Shrimp, Scallops, Tuna, Fireball Sauce


emmebear said, "I enjoyed this a lot. Very fresh ingredients and the topping was indeed spicy, which surprised me."





Then for their entrees, emmebear's friend chose...




Seared Diver Scallops with Zellwood Corn Risotto, Spiced Tomato Broth, Micro Popcorn Shoots


emmebear said, "The scallops were cooked perfectly. Soooo good. The risotto was gorgeous! It was my favorite bite from dinner. Le Cellier should take notes on this risotto. However for the price, there should be at least 5 scallops."




emmebear chose for her entree...




Veal Chop with Creamy O’Henry Sweet Potato Hash, Wild Mushroom, Root Spinach, and Chimichurri


emmebear said, "It was cooked a perfect medium and seasoned properly. The thing was massive, but very good. Thumbs up!"







"Bringing class to the California Grill!"


emmebear said, "Just picked it up for a photo op. I didn't really eat it this way."




From the Kids' Menu, Emme chose...




Grilled Chicken
with Brown Basmati Rice, Seasonal Vegetables and House-made Barbecue Sauce



emmebear said, "Emme didn't like it. The brown basmati rice was not cooked enough. Still very hard and underdone."




Then for dessert, Emme had this...





emmebear said, "This wasn't on the menu but our server was kind enough to fulfill my request of vanilla ice cream with sprinkles."




And emmebear chose...




Heather’s Chocolate Sampler
with Marshmallow Whoopie Pies, Chipotle Chocolate Cupcake, Peanut Butter Buckeye Pop, and Valrhona Mint Chocolate Cup



emmebear said, "I was too full to enjoy this. I had a bite of everything and it was yummy."



"The staff chose Emme to be the Fireworks Starter! She got to hit the shiny button to turn the lights down before Wishes. They made it into a really special thing. When she hit the button, they sprinkled confetti on top of us! She felt so special. I thought it was sweet. She received a certificate, a button, stickers, and the confetti in an envelope."









Envelope to hold the Confetti






Ready for the chilly night!




In conclusion emmebear said, "Overall, it was a good experience. The view for Wishes made the entire meal worthwhile, as it was a chilly night. The view was beautiful. Also, our server Rich was fantastic and very attentive. We used the Deluxe Dining Plan for the meal. Without the plan, the meal would've cost $179. We also had 2 drinks (wine & martini) that cost $24 with my TIW card. We also got complimentary valet parking with TIW."

I have other plans for the December team of reporters. I have three more updates (so far) and then maybe I will have time to post the details of my plan. If not today, then for sure in the next day or two.

Barb, your live reporters all take such great pictures! I know it's been said before, but it is worth repeating...I love following this thread and am so appreciative of all the hard work you put into it! I can't believe that even with Thanksgiving you never missed a beat. Thank you so much for putting all of this together!

Thank you so much for the kind words. However, most of the credit belongs to our live reporters. They are really awesome! But it's good to hear that you are enjoying this thread.

And we also heard from Gina99 tonight, who sent us her first updates.

Note from jabead: This is the first trip to Disney World for Gina & family!


Gina said, "We made it to Disney all the way from Toronto. The first pic is my son Gabriel when we checked into the Polynesian and he figured out it was a towel Mickey."








Then Gina said, "We were in DTD today for lunch and went to Pollo Campero. This was special since my husband grew up in Central America and he hasn't had this in about 25 years!"



Pollo Campero



First a menu pic...










2 piece fried chicken meal with yuca fries and in the little bucket are fried plantains


Gina said, "The chicken was delish and the plantains were good too. The yuca fries were pretty bland."



"The next pic is Gabe eating his chicken strip with fries meal. The strips had nice seasoning to them but the best part of the meal were the French fries. They were like good fish and chip house ones."

Then tonight Gina & family went to the...

Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show


First some menu pics...









Cocktail Menu







The appetizers: Sweet potato salad, Asian slaw and the pineapple coconut bread


Gina said, "The bread was yummy but I wish it were warmed. The salads were pretty gross and no one ate them."






Pele's Fire Punch - The Volcano Goddess' blend of Bacardi rum, Myers' Original Dark Rum, Banana Liqueur, blackberry brandy, pineapple juice, and Grenadine served in an authentic, hand-carved monkey coconut.



Gina said, "I drowned my sorrows about the yucky appetizers with this delish drink that you get in a coconut monkey head.
Nothing says vacation like a tacky drink cup."








Chicken, rice, harvest vegetables, and pork


Gina said, "The sauce on the pork was good and I actually wished that they would have caramelized some of that on the chicken. But the chicken was good - not too dry. The rice and veggies were not very good though."







Smoking Volcano that was served with dessert







For dessert: Chocolate macadamia mousse


Gina said, Everyone loved this. I didn't like the crust at the bottom. It was too soft and mushy. But my hubs loved it and said I was crazy!"






Kids' dessert: Marshmallow pops rolled in sprinkles!


Gina said, "A hit with both my kids but not our dentist I'm sure."






The Fire Dancer Guy


Gina said, "This was the best part of the show. He was really great!!!"



"Overall, I wouldn't shell out the 2 credits for the food here, but the fire dancer was great and the kids loved watching the dancers. Glad we did it once, but probably wouldn't do it for a second time."




Then their night ended with this treat from Captain Cook's...




Dole Whip



5 Scavenger Hunt Points Earned for Update from Spirit of Aloha, Cocktail, pic of Gina and two menu pics

Good Morning everyone! I have received two updates already this morning (before 7:30 ET, 6:30 Central), one by email and the other by text. But according to the rules stated on the Scavenger Hunt List...

JUST ADDED 11/1 - The first update sent (by text or email) each day after 7:30 a.m. (Disney time) will receive that day's "FIRST UPDATE of the DAY" Scavenger Hunt point. The update must include at least one food item. But if you send a text before that time, then 1 point will be deducted.


these updates would not qualify for today's FIRST UPDATE of the DAY. While I won't deduct a point for the early morning text, I ask that from now on everyone "play by the rules". Though I'm usually awake (but not up yet) before that time, my DH is not and gets a little crabby when he is awakened by my buzzing phone. Thank you for your cooperation.


Okay, with that out of the way, let's move on to the food!
