I just upgraded to Deluxe() and am planning on eating at

Kona Lunch
Boma Dinner
Crystal Palace Breakfast
BOG Lunch
Artist Point
Les Chefs/Coral Reef/San Angel Lunch (still undecided)
Le Cellier Dinner

Glad to hear you're still a go, thanks Rachel!

You have two restaurants that I had completely forgotten about, Restaurant Marrakesh and Trails End. Those will both be worth 5 points in the January game since we have not yet had an live update from either one.

Since I don't have any live from Disney World updates to post, I will go ahead and post some pics from my family Christmas party, which is modeled after the Epcot Food & Wine Festival.

And so...








The party began with a wine tasting and cheese course (plus a few other appies). This was all served buffet-style.












Let's start our world tour with Italy...









On the right: Provolone Piccante, Crotonese, Pecorino Toscano Cheeses & Pepperoni slices
Center: Bruschetta
On the left: Salami and Mozzarella wrapped in Prosciutto
Wines: Moscato d'Asti, Pinot Grigio, and two Abruzzo wines (the area where my family was originally from). One red Montepulciano, and the other white Trebbiano.






Then on to France...









On the right: Fresh Fruit Plate with Red Grapes, Strawberries, and Pears
Center: Chevre topped with Cranberries
On the left: Gruyere de Comte and Saucisson Sec
Wines: Vouvray (Chenin Blanc) and Beaujolais (Gamay)




Next up is South Africa...




Hummus, Naan bread, and Falafel chips
Wines: Bordeaux Blend and Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz




And then Australia & New Zealand...




Roaring Forties Blue Cheese from Australia
Wines: Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, Shiraz from Australia





Next comes Latin America & Spain...




Manchego Cheese
Wines: Malbec and Torrontes from Argentina





Then we have Greece...




Spanakopita and Kalamata Olives
Wine: Boutari Moschofilero





Followed by Asian (Japan/China)...









California Sushi Roll (with Cream Cheese) and Sesame Sticks
Plum Wine and Hana-Awaka Sake




There were four of us taking pics that night and we all seemed to have forgotten to take pictures of the Germany and U.S. because they were at separate tables.


But for Germany cheeses, we had Allgau Emmental and Rauchkase. Also Black Kassel Salami. Our German wines were both Reislings, one was Dr. Loosen Dr. L Estate QbA and the other a Spatlese, which is my mother-in-law's favorite wine.


For the U.S., we concentrated on wines from the West Coast. From California, we had a Chardonnay, Merlot, and a Cabernet Sauvignon. From Oregon, a Pinot Noir and from Washington, my current favorite wine, Eroica Reisling. Our cheese was an Extra-Sharp Tillamook Cheddar from Oregon.


That's it for the first course. The entree course will be coming soon.

Oh wow Barb - this looks incredible

You must have been preparing food for days!

Everything looks delicious and what a great idea to do a "world tour" with your food and wine selections

Did you make everyone stand in really long lines before feeding them, just to get the true Epcot feel !!

For dessert we served this platter of...


Cookies from Around the World




Starting at the 12:00 position and moving clockwise: Blueberry Scones (for Australia), Pizzelles (Italian waffle cookies), Chocolate-dipped Madeleines (France), Apple Strudel Bites, Cherry Strudel Bites (Germany), and in the middle, Pan de Polvo (Mexican Fiesta Cookies) dusted in either powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar.



And then another pic which includes part of the platter of my kids' favorite...


Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies







And one last pic of yours truly and my oldest daughter...





In our "Ta-da" Pose

First of all, Happy New Year! I don't get to reply to this thread (or any thread) as often as I'd like to, but I'm still here and love seeing the live updates.

Second, wow to your family party! What an ambitious concept, and it looks like it was a complete success.

Third, I'd be happy to contribute to this thread. Let me see what I can do...I may have some food pics worth sharing.

The arrival of three live reporters today at Disney World will mark the beginning of our January game. Today is also the departure day of our final December Holiday Roulette Game contestant. Since I have not heard from her since Friday, I'm going to go ahead and close out the December game now and declare our top 5 winners. I will feature each of them over the next few days, so stay tuned for that.




Thanks so much for being a Live Reporter...Good Job!!!





AppleSister1's Total Holiday Roulette Points Earned = 10

I'm still here!!!
I do still plan to do live reviews during our January trip Barb, sorry I didn't pm back right away (too much real life going on)

The trip is me, Tricia, my middle son L, and I just recently added my Mom.
I took her in December 2010 but the record colds put a little damper on it for her so I'm taking her again.
She is 77 and having a harder time getting around, but not enough to use an ECV or anything...

Sooooo, as of now we won't be doing DDP because I have an AP and TIW.
I'm pretty sure our ADRs are firm now (notice I said "pretty" sure)

A lot of these are not new to us, some are. I wanted to try a few places that didn't make the list but I just couldn't knock out L's favs (even if I don't like them...taking one for the team. Yes, I'm talking to you Chef Mickey's! YUCK)

We will be there Jan 25- Feb 1

The Plaza (D)
Tusker House (B)
Chefs de France (L) (to see Remy!)
Sci Fi (L)
Yachtsman (D)
Crystal Palace (B)
Chef Mickey (B)

I also plan to try BOG CS Lunch. We'll see how crazy it is. Our week is about the slowest of the year so that might help.
I'm missing out on some fav's like Jiko...but we will be back in a few months anyway.
We are doing a split stay on rented DVC points at AKL Jambo and BLT.
