I love O'hana, but I'm really unsure about the mixed veggies. Broccoli is one of my favorites, so mixing it with my hated string beans seems like a mistake!

The peanut sauce was my favorite, but I also enjoyed the sweet and sour!

The next update came in this morning by email at about the same time as butiflfeet sent her's by text, so I'm also awarding Lauren (Giselle22) the First Update of the Day point.


She and her group had dinner last night at the Wilderness Lodge's...



Whispering Canyon Cafe


Lauren said, "DBff and her parents and boyfriend arrived last night. We had dinner together at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Our server, Vaquero Al, was really great. Right off the bat, my friend's mom took forever deciding what drink she wanted. He whistled the Jeopardy tune at her then eventually grabbed a chair from the table next to us and sat down to wait. He gestured to another table next to us and said "see this is my table too, they are waiting for me. But she can't decide, sorry!"












"And after all that, I can't remember what drink she ordered! But she enjoyed it!"







"DBff's dad and my dad both ordered Session Black lagers. They both really liked this."







"DBff's BF (hahaha) and my bro had milkshakes. Yummy!"







"Cornbread with whipped butter came out first. Delicious! Not dry at all."







"Then we got our all-you-can-eat platters of mashed potatoes, veggies, corn on the cob, and meat. We chose chicken, ribs, and beef strip loin. I didn't try the ribs, but the others said they were good, and the chicken and beef were both very good! They also give you baked beans. The potatoes and veggies were also really good; the veggies have a tasty garlic seasoning on them."









"A table next to us asked for ketchup so I snapped a quick pic afterwards."








"For dessert you get a sampler plate of cranberry apple buckle with orange whipped cream, a chocolate mocha cake, and key lime cheesecake. Everything was good but we were too full to eat much!"



"Also, I don't have pics of what they got, but my parents weren't very hungry so they just ordered appetizers and didn't participate in the all-you-can-eat, which worked out fine."



3 January Game Points Earned + 5 Bonus Points for First Update of the Day, 3 pics of group members, and misc. pics

I had to go back to the counter and ask for it specifically!!

My son loved the broccoli, as well. I guess we'll be fighting over it! Did 'Ohanas ask for feedback?

butiflfeet and her DH also dined at the Wilderness Lodge last night, but first they stopped at the Grand Floridian for a pre-dinner cocktail at...



Mizner's Lounge






butiflfeet said, "This drink is not on the menu but if Sheila is working the bar she will mix it up for you. It's a Poison Apple and it is awesome! She mixed apple vodka, Captain Morgan, Sprite, some bitters, and a few other things for this beauty."


1 Bonus Point Awarded for new cocktail

Then butiflfeet and her DH headed to the Wilderness Lodge to have dinner at...


Artist Point



First a menu pic...









Mixed Field Greens Salad
with Heirloom Apples, Sunflower Seed Granola, Rogue River Bleu Cheese, and Ice Wine Vinaigrette



"We both started with the seasonal salad and really liked the ice wine dressing. I thought it might turn out too sweet but it was wonderful."







Slow-roasted Buffalo Strip Steak
served with Macaroni and Cheese, Rainbow Chard, and Blackberry Pinot Noir Reduction



"For my main I chose the buffalo strip steak. This was perfectly cooked medium rare and the Pinot Noir sauce was a great sweet and tart accompaniment. The mac and cheese was to die for!"









All-Natural Kurobuta Pork Tenderloin
served with Peruvian Purple Potato Mash, Heirloom Rainbow Carrots, Crispy Sweet Onions, and Wild Berry Gastrique



"DH had the pork tenderloin. He wouldn't share much with me so it was wonderful as well. We split the berry cobbler for dessert but I forgot a picture of it. It's one of my favorite desserts at Disney World!"


5 January Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for menu pic

Thanks for the info - I'll have to remember to do that!

As for tonight's other updates, the Wilderness Lodge food definitely has me feeling hungry. I'd like to try WCC sometime (still haven't been there yet), and it's so great to see an updated Artist Point menu! The tuna, salmon, and buffalo all sound amazing - how I miss that place.

Next in this morning was an update from the Birthday Girl, Becky (BlovesC).


For her birthday breakfast, she and Charlie headed to the Grand Floridian Resort's...



Grand Floridian Cafe







First a menu pic...









Lobster Eggs Benedict - Two Poached Eggs, Lobster hash, Asparagus, and Hollandaise Sauce







"Can I eat now? Is picture time over?!"






Citrus Pancakes - Roasted Pecan and Sun-dried Cranberry Pancakes served with House-made Orange Butter





Then about 1/2 hour later, Becky sent me this menu pic from the Tomorrowland Terrace...







Becky said, "Tomorrowland Terrace is serving breakfast during the Main Street Bakery renovation. Kinda lackluster!"



Notice the Beignets listed on the menu. Hmmm, I wonder. Could they be the same as those served at POFQ???




Then Becky said, "Btw, we are about to board Space Mountain. Perfect for after breakfast!"



3 January Game Points Earned + 4 Bonus Points for 2 menu pics, pic of the GFC rose, and "annoyed Charlie" pic + 5 Extra Special Birthday Bonus Points!

Jolly Holiday Bakery

One last breakfast update from today, this one from butiflfeet.


She and her family went to the Polynesian Resort this morning to have breakfast at...



Kona Cafe





Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with Strawberry Compote and Ham


butiflfeet said, "DH had the Tonga Toast and deemed it delicious."







Blueberry Pancakes served with Ham


"DSis had these and thought they were nice and fluffy."






Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and Sausage


"I loved these. I really liked the pieces of macadamia nuts right in the pancakes and not just in the butter like you get when these are served with the Big Kahuna. Overall we had a wonderful breakfast this morning!"

That's all for tonight folks! But be sure to check back tomorrow for updates from Tutto Gusto, Jiko, and Restaurant Marakesh, to name just a few. Also the face of Niki (Andiokno) will be revealed in one of her updates from today. In addition, we received the first update from one reporter who just arrived and the final update from another reporter, glasslipper. Oh, and I also think that one of our reporters just might have a DISmeet photo or two to share with us tomorrow.

You are not alone. I've been craving cheese plate lately due to all the cheese plates pictured in this thread and forum. So I split one with my dad for dinner tonight.

Good morning everyone!

I posted all of our breakfast updates from yesterday last night, so now let's move on to lunch.




Our first lunch update is from yesterday's birthday girl, Becky (BlovesC).

She and her DH, Charlie, had lunch at...



Be our Guest



Becky started her update with this pic...





She said, "The line to get into BoG for lunch. Joy!"





Then about 20 minutes later came this pic...





Becky said, "We sat in this room...the gallery? I have no idea, but it was much, much quieter than the ballroom."





And here is what they had to eat...




Carved Turkey Sandwich served on a warm baguette with Dijon mayonnaise and Pomme Frites


"I love fried pommes, don't you?"







Croque Monsieur - Grilled sandwich of carved ham, Gruyere cheese, and bechamel with Pommes Frites.







Passion Fruit Cream Puff filled with Passion fruit mousse and topped with whipped cream



"Deux passion fruit cream puffs. I certainly wasn't going to get another cupcake!"




3 January Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for Misc. BoG pics
