Your pictures look great! Awesome spread. I was wondering if I could ask you a question. You probably don't remember but I am from your area. We are leaving this Friday, flying Frontier. I think the flight leaves at 4 pm. How early would you get to the airport?

The entire spread looks terrific! What a great idea! I applaud you for putting it all together! Between this thread and that party, you appear to be a master organizer!

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 !!

Thank you all for your kind words! And you are all most definitely invited to the 4th Annual Christmas Around the World Party. Believe me, I made enough food to feed all of you...and your families too.

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.

Hi Donald!

It's so great to see your name again here. It seems like forever! But of course, as a mother of a college student, I totally understand.
And I of course I would love to have you contribute to the live thread!

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.


Good to hear you are still a "go". Thanks Tricia!

Yes, I do remember you! I love the Central Illinois Regional Airport because it is so easy. I would say that if you are there by 3 p.m. you would be fine. Have a great trip!

Next we have an update from Christina (DisneyMamato4).


She and her family spent their first day at Animal Kingdom, where they all split a couple of these for their breakfast...





Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel


Christina said, "Very good, warm and just enough spice."




Then their lunch was from a couple of different places, since they all wanted something different.
Three of them had lunch from...



Yak & Yeti Counter Service





Chicken Fried Rice


Christina said, "This was good, nothing special but it was hot and filled our bellies.
We also had egg rolls, which were hot and crispy."






Pork Egg Roll




Her DH had lunch from...


Flame Tree Barbecue





1/2 Slab of St. Louis Ribs served with baked beans and coleslaw


Christina said, "He loved them and the coleslaw and baked beans, too."




Then later they grabbed this snack from the...


Bradley Falls Vegetarian Kiosk





Edamame


Christina said, "Very good! You get tons for $4."
