First we have a snack update from the...



Boardwalk Bakery





Chocolate Peppermint Cupcake


DDW said, "It was delicious! (and big enough to share)"


He added, "As you often say, Boardwalk Bakery is definitely one of the best places for cupcakes."

Gotta say that I'm not surprised to see DDW with a cupcake!!! Seriously, what a treat to see DDW's photos and trip highlights.

I agree, these January reports sure are keeping us satisfied with their great reviews and updates. Thanks again Barb for all this hard work!

Your Food around the World feast photos were INCREDIBLE!!! What an awesome job.

Barb if you still need live reports for late Feb/early March, we will be there from 2/23 to 3/4. Emily and I can do some live reporting. This is the trip she is planning so it may be more her than me!

Now for the first update from Robin (ciera321) and her family, who arrived today at Disney World.


Their first Disney meal was at Downtown Disney's...


Wolfgang Puck Express




Spaghetti and Meatballs with tomato-basil-garlic sauce and fresh herbs


Robin said, "My DH Tim had this. He loved it and practically licked the plate."






Spaghetti Bolognese with meat sauce, peas and parmesan cheese


"This was a repeat for me from our June trip. It is full of flavor with meat, peas, carrots, and lots of garlic. Very good! Luckily I have mints."






Four Cheese Macaroni


Our DS Alex had this. He's never met a mac and cheese he didn't like, and this was no exception. Hot and cheesy!"






Creme Brulee


"For dessert we had the creme brulee. It was good, but we've had a lot better at Disney World!"

Now we have another update from Christina (DisneyMamato4).


She and her family went to the AKL - Kidani Village tonight to have dinner at...



SANAA






Mustard Seed-crusted Scallops with a Coconut Cream Sauce


Christina said, "We had the bread service to start but the kids got to it before I could take a picture. First pic is of my scallops. They are on the appetizer menu but I got them as my main with a side of basmati rice. They were wonderful and cooked to perfection."






Slow Cooked in Gravy, Simple and Well Seasoned - Butter Chicken and Lamb Vindaloo with Five-grain rice pilaf


"My husband got this and asked that they up the heat a little and they were happy to accommodate. He ate the whole thing and loved it."






Tandoori Lamb with Five-grain rice pilaf



"This was my oldest's entree. She got it last time and has always loved it. The lamb was cooked a nice medium and very tender."






Kids Mac & Cheese



"The other kids got mac and cheese and grilled chicken."






Christina's DS Jack with his grilled chicken (I think???)





For dessert, they split these...




Banana Kulfi Sundae with warm chocolate sauce, strawberries, and spiced cashews






Dessert Trio - (from left to right)Chocolate Cake, Chai Cream, and Tropical Fruit Kulfi


Christina said, "I just love the chai cream!"




3 January Game Points Earned + 1 Point for including Jack in a pic

Next is an update from quietgirl.



She said, "Today we headed into World Showcase, and of course over to La Patisserie in France! It's a tradition for us to go there! Apparently everybody had the same idea, 'cause they were hopping!
Can't wait till the expansion is complete here!!"






"The crowd in front."





"They had a great window display..."





"Including various breads."









"We wanted a ham tartine, but they ran out right then (as this pic shows)."







"So we just went with the cheese tartine. Very much like a French bread pizza, truly a great snack!!









"I also got the cheesecake, because I just LOVE cheesecake. This is probably my fave cheesecake on property, except maybe Germany. (Anybody have any others they suggest?) Not a fan of sauce or fruit, just love it plain!"






She added, "We both loved this, and would absolutely get again. They had a triple choc cake that looked delicious, but steered clear of it for now... Maybe next time!!"


Part II of quietgirl's lunch coming up next!


3 January Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for the extra non-food pics

Part II of quietgirl's lunch update is from...


Tangierine Cafe












"One of our favorite counter services in all of Disney world is Morocco. We make it a point to go every trip!
They were much busier than usual, but very efficient and friendly."






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


quietgirl said, "We got the combo platter, which was divine as always!! This platter is what sold me on lamb! And the hummus is yummus! Different this time tho- instead of the chicken being in slices like the lamb, and always has been in the past, tonight it was in chunks. Still delicious, just prefer the consistency of the slices."








"Baklava for dessert, and as much as I love this spot, I wish they'd change the dessert! It was as I remembered... Blech. DGF doesn't mind it as much as I do, and ate about half."




"We explored the pavilion for a bit after that..."







"And even thought about Marrakesh for a meal later- we've been toying with the notion for awhile, but it never happens!!"













3 January Game Points Earned + 3 Bonus Points for "Drummer" and menu pics

Thanks so much! I used two cameras on that trip: a point-and-shoot (Canon PowerShot ELPH 500HS) and my iPhone 4S camera. Sometimes the iPhone pics can be a bit dull, so I use an Instagram filter to make the colors bolder (these are the square-shaped pics).

It wouldn't be a Disney trip without at least one cupcake. (okay, that's a lie, but there's no way I was turning down those holiday-inspired cupcakes ).

It's great to see a menu from Marrakesh! Haven't been there in years, but I have fond memories of their couscous entrees and the Marrakesh Delight dessert.

Our next update is from glasslipper.


She and her family had dinner last night at Epcot's...


Biergarten





German Beer Flight - Four Pours 5 oz each - $10.00
Radeberger Pilsner, Schöfferhofer Weizen, Altenmünster Oktoberfest, and Hövels



glasslipper said, "We had dinner last night at Biergarten in Germany. Here is DH's plate, he had German sausages sauerkraut, chicken, and potatoes. He also had a beer flight which he loved."







"DD's plate - she had the chicken, spatzle, salad, and pretzel bread. It was all good! The chef at Biergarten was great with the dairy intolerance, he came by the table and walked through the line with DD and told her what she could have from the buffet and brought dairy free dumplings, salad dressing, and desserts."








"My plate - I had the pretzel bread, German potatoes, beans, chicken, salad, and pork loin, everything was good!
The German potato salad was especially good."










For dessert, everyone but DD had the apple strudel with a vanilla cream and a Bavarian cheesecake, both were great!






Her DD's Dessert Plate



3 January Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for Beer Flight
