And speaking of February, things are starting to look a little better thanks to some recent volunteers. Here are the February dates we are still needing reporters:


Feb. 1 - Feb. 17 - 1 or 2 more reporters needed

Feb. 18 - Feb. 23 - We have no one for this week.

Feb. 24 - Feb. 28 - 1 or 2 more reporters needed
We are there from the 3rd to the 14th. what is involved? I'd love to participate. I've been reading everyone's food reports and love to give back.

Now for our First Update of the Day, sent to us by emmebear.






She and Emme arrived at Disney World last night and had dinner at Downtown Disney's...









"Emme kept repeating, "What's going on mommy?! Where are we?!"







"The ice cave. Very cool. It changes colors. There's also meteor showers every 20 minutes."





Now for some food and beverages...








Kid's Mac & Cheese


emmebear said, "This was good. Tasted like Velveeta Mac & Cheese."






emmebear with a 21 oz. Sam Adams Winter Lager







Emme and her fancy drink






Tempura-battered Fish Taco with black beans and rice



"This was ok at best. It had 3 corn tortillas wrapped over one tiny piece of battered fish. There was too much red cabbage on the inside, not enough fish and I could barely taste the avocado cream. The black beans were nicely seasoned and the rice was well cooked though."





An inside view





"T-Rex was nice to try once. It was very loud & busy! If the Disney site shows no ressies available (like it did for me), call T-Rex directly for a ressie! Wait time for walk-ins was 80 minutes! But we waited less than 5 minutes with a ressie."



And last emmebear said, "Emme loved the dinosaurs. There's lots to see for the kids but the food was lacking. $55 for child's entree, light cup, milk, 2 beers, one adult entree, and tip. They don't accept TIW but I did get 10% off with my Annual Pass."




3 January Points Earned + 4 Bonus Points for First Update of the Day, pics of emmebear & Emme, and extra non-food pics from T-Rex

Next is an update from Joyce (Jersette), from her lunch yesterday at...


'50s Prime Time Cafe






Chicken Noodle Soup - Hearty mixture of chicken, vegetables, and egg noodles


Joyce said, "It was drizzly and a little chilly in the park, so we all ordered the chicken noodle soup to warm us up.
Very homey tasting."








"Peanut butter and jelly shake for DD and I."







Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and green beans


"David and I both had this as our entree...I substituted green beans, but David had the collard greens that usually comes with it. I want Aunt Liz's recipe!!! From the crackly skin to the moist meat, this is good stuff."






Grandma's Chicken Pot Pie - A creamy cheese mixture of chicken, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onions, and peas topped with a flaky pastry


"Katy enjoyed this. It was loaded with chicken!"




"We were stuffed. We so enjoy '50s...we had a very Mom-like server, so no antics. (David didn't even get reprimanded for not touching his greens! ) It was fine, though...she was so nice. Love the atmosphere and the food."




Then for dinner they headed over to the Polynesian Resort to dine at...


'Ohana





Lapu Lapu


Joyce said, "It was way too dark where we were sitting for decent pics (and everyone has seen the food there, right?)...but here's a Lapu Lapu, which DD and I both indulged in. Yum! The kids liked the food a lot. David was all over the wings. I thought it was okay, not mind-blowing. I was exhausted, so maybe that colored my perception."


Joyce added, "Oh, and Katy's luggage made it yesterday [been missing since their arrival on Wednesday] after an Atlanta detour!!! Big relief though...hooray!"



3 January Game Points Earned for PTC and 1 Point for 'Ohana (I'll count it as snack update for the Lapu Lapu pic)

Ok, so we have an ADR at 'Ohana for the first time. Please tell me, what is in a Lapu Lapu? At this point I will probably order it just because of how you drink it is awesome. lol

Next up is an update from quietgirl, who had dinner last night at the Beach Club's...


Cape May Cafe

Clambake Dinner Buffet








quietgirl said, "Potato soup- bland, tried salt with little success, didn't come close to BOG quality!"







"I also had cheese and loaded potato salad..."








"And for my meal I had mashed potatoes, red whole potatoes, curry pork, and beef strip. The beef was fantastic, the pork was ok, and both the potatoes were good."







"DGF had cheese, olives, tomato and mozzarella, and a Caesar salad."







"And crab legs, clams and mussels."








"And between the two of us, for dessert we had lemon cheesecake with blueberry whipped creme, Boston creme pie, flourless chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake, and flan."













"As usual, as a non-seafood eater, I find Cape May kind of "eh", but DGF loves it! The beef was really good this time though, and the service was excellent!"








4 January Game Points Earned, since we've only had one other update from Cape May dinner and it was back in September

Now for an update from Hollywood Studios, where our live reporter, Christina (DisneyMamato4) had this to say...


"Saturday morning at Hollywood Studios, where we had the breakfast of champions. While the husband and big kids were in line for Rockin' Rollercoaster, the little one and I decided to stop for a snack."


Starring Rolls Cafe






Banana Split Cake


"I got this and it was nice and banana-y. Lizzie my 4 yr. old decided on Cheetos and insisted on her picture too."








Then later Christina said, "We skipped lunch at Hollywood Studios. Starring Rolls was out of sandwiches and we just don't like the counter service here. Plus we have an early dinner reservation at Sanaa. We did get a snack though."


The Writer's Stop





Carrot Cake Cookie


"These were very good. I wasn't sure I would like it but it wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be. It was huge though, as you can see by the picture. It was almost as big as my hand!"







"Lizzie had a Mickey cookie with pink icing."



2 January Game Points Earned for 2 Snack updates + 2 Bonus Points for including pics of Lizzie in each one

Those are some of the most beautiful pictures I've seen of Fantasyland!!! Perfection! And of course the wonderful food
What kind of camera did you use taking those photos? I'm in love wth them!

Some really great updates these last couple days! Loving that Lapu Lapu and looking very much forward to it
