And now for some lunch updates from today, beginning with this one from Jenna (DisWishes720).


She and her family were at Magic Kingdom today and had lunch at...




Columbia Harbour House





New England Clam Chowder, French Fries, & Chocolate Cake


Jenna said, "I had the clam chowder which was really very delicious."






Chicken Breast Nuggets & Fish and French Fries



Jenna said, "My mom and dad had the battered fish and chicken, which they said was 8 out of 10 and only because of the grease factor."






Turkey Leg


Jenna said, "My DH decided to skip CHH and go for his all time favorite...the turkey leg from Frontierland and it did not disappoint!"







Jenna said, "We also won a 20% off merchandise coupon, which I thought was pretty cool!"

And then a lunch update from grrrlennyl.


She was also at Magic Kingdom, but her lunch was at...



The Plaza Restaurant





VEGETARIAN SANDWICH
Hummus, Basil Pesto, Cucumber, Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato, and Lettuce on
Multigrain Bread



She said, "I had the veggie sandwich (no cheese) on the multigrain, which was vegan, and with fries. The fries were great and so was the sandwich, but it would've been better on a warmer day."





And for dessert...




Fruit Plate




Then tonight, grrrlennyl is attending the MVMCP and had this snack...




Hot Chocolate & Cookies


She said, "The cookies were soft and pretty good (but not vegan) and the hot chocolate was served hot."

Jill (jmm476) was at Epcot today and had lunch around the World, beginning at...


Tangierine Cafe






Chicken & Lamb Combo Shawarma Platter served with a side of Hummus, Tabouleh and a Tangierine Couscous Salad with fresh Moroccan bread & Baklava for dessert.



Jill said, "It was so much food and everything on the plate was delicious. DD enjoyed her first tastes of hummus, lamb, and couscous. I even ate most of the baklava and I usually hate nuts in desserts. It was so good!"


"DH ate at Yorkshire Fish Shop while we met Alice, so I don't have a pic. He was disappointed that it was only 2 small pieces of fish."




Then from the Italy Wine Shop...




Rosa Regale


Jill said, "Then we hung out in Italy for a while to watch a street performer and the storyteller. So I popped into the wine store for a glass of Rosa Regale. Mmm...I wish I had some right now."



Note from jabead: I just bought a couple of bottles of Rosa Regale for the holidays. They were $15.99 each at Meijers, which I thought was a pretty good price.




Now back to Jill's update and their next stop at China's...




Joy of Tea





Jill's DH & a Mango Gingerita (with Vodka and Rum)



Jill said, "It was yummy, didn't taste much ginger...just mango and rum. It caused a little brain freeze but it was worth it."




Then it was on to Norway and this treat from the...


Kringla Bakeri og Cafe





School Bread


Jill said, "I had to try the school bread. I liked it a lot and DD loved the custard! I ate it slowly over the next 2 hours while we got our VISA picture and did a few more attractions."




Then their last stop was at Mexico's...


La Cantina de San Angel






Nachos - corn tortilla chips with ground beef, nacho cheese, fresh tomatoes, jalapenos, black beans, and sour cream


Jill said, "I love nachos with lots of toppings and these were good. I wouldn't go out of my way to get them again, but it was a decent, healthy dinner."


3 Point Holiday Roulette Bonus for 2 new cocktails & pic of DH



2 Point Roulette Bet placed on Epcot Group 3 for Tangierine Cafe in Morocco

Next is a lunch update sent to us by JessiLynn015.



She said, "We only had 1 meal yesterday due to such a large late lunch, so this morning we were hungry!!
We decided to head to Downtown Disney and fill up at Wolfgang Puck Express."



Wolfgang Puck Express






Spicy Chicken Pizza - Chili oil, grilled chicken, red & yellow peppers, roma tomatoes, leeks, and cilantro


JessiLynn said, 'Mom had the spicy chicken pizza. As you can tell, we were hungry because we grabbed a piece as soon as she set it on the table. It was great! I loved the cilantro."






Rotisserie Turkey Club Sandwich with Avocado, bacon, red onion, plum tomatoes, romaine, remoulade and french fries


JessiLynn said, "I had the turkey club. This was also delicious.
It had some kind of avocado mayo on it that gave it a great flavor."








Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with peas, bacon and parmesan cheese


JessiLynn said, "DH had the chicken Alfredo. He didn't like the cheese flavor that was in it, but he managed to eat the entire plate."







Creme Brulee & Vanilla Bean Cheesecake


JessiLynn said, "I had the crème brûlée and LOVED it! It was great and I would say better than the one I had at Coral Reef. Mom & DH had the cheesecake and both loved it. They agreed its the perfect size after having such a large meal."

Next we have an update from Rarity.


On Wednesday she and her sister were at Epcot and dined at...




Le Cellier






Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon
Le Cellier “Signature Dish” served with Wild Mushroom Risotto and White Truffle Butter Sauce



Rarity said, "We both had the filet. This was our first time at Le Cellier, and it did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were so tender."




Then for their desserts, they chose...





Canadian Chocolate "Moose"







Chocolate Pecan Pie on the Rocks



Rarity said, "My sister had the Chocolate Moose, and they were sweet enough to add a candle to it. She's been saying for months she couldn't wait to eat its face, and she did enjoy it, except for whatever the tongue was made of. I had the Pecan Pie on the Rocks. It was dubbed "the neverending dessert" by our server, and he wasn't kidding. I love dessert and can put away some food, but I just couldn't finish it. It was delicious, though!"

And our last update of the day was sent by JessiLynn015.



She and her DH got to try the LeFou's Brew today at...




Gaston's Tavern





LeFou' Brew


JessiLynn said, "We loved the juice, but the topping was a bit too sour for our liking.




Then at dinner her DH had a different kind of brew at Epcot's...



Biegarten




Oktoberfest Beer



JessiLynn said, We had dinner at Biergarten tonight! Sadly, there we no booths and I couldn't bring the stroller in, so I had to hold Kesler throughout the dinner and it made it difficult to get different pictures."

"DH did happen to snap a pic of his Liter of Oktoberfest. He loved it! As for the meal, mom and DH really enjoyed it. I'm not a big fan of the types of foods they had there so it's not somewhere I'd go again. The service and entertainment were great, though!"

hello everyone! i'm working a little over a half day & then we are off to disney to celebrate emme. i finalized our ADR's just last night & need to load up the car during my lunch break.

emme was rushed to the ER & hospitalized in the PICU at wolfson's childrens hospital on 12/6/11 for unexplained seizures. she stopped breathing after her seizure ended & my brother (who is a sgt in the army & a combat medic) started chest compressions on her while i called 911. i'm a nurse & i've seen a lot of heartbreaking situations but this was probably the worst moment of my life.

we were in the PICU for 8 days, 7 nights. she randomly had a seizure at our house & then another one in the ER. the doctors ran every test on her, including a spinal tap & they could not figure out why she was having seizures.

she has a neurologist we visit every 3 months & thus far, we have been seizure free since 12/6/11 & this is worth celebrating.


what a difference a year makes!

not trying to be a debbie downer with this post but we have lots of celebrating to do during this trip.

And now for our First Update of the Day, which was sent by grrrlennyl.



She and her partner had dinner last night at...




Landscapes of Flavor





Create Your Own Pasta with chicken (served on the side)


grrrlennyl said, "We shared this. It was linguini (I think they called it spaghetti) with a decently spiced marinara sauce, sundried tomatoes, and peppers. That little bowl is the chicken that my partner got on the side. The pasta was vegan, except for the bowl of chicken. The bread was pretty good, but we shared and I wish we'd had another piece."







grrrlennyl said, "These are the cupcakes my partner got for our dessert. I thought they were Babycakes, but they were actually just Disney ones. Not vegan, but the yellow and chocolate were both good. My partner said the carrot cake was good. We haven't tried the red velvet yet."



Then this morning grrrlennyl is at Magic Kingdom and had this snack from...


Aloha Isle





Pineapple Dole Whip Float
