Then we have a breakfast update from Chris (dvc4life).


She and her DH were at Epcot this morning and had breakfast at...




Sunshine Seasons





Croissant Berry Pudding


Chris said, "I had the berry bread pudding. It was very good.
Loved how the blueberries popped in your mouth when you ate them."







Breakfast Panini and Potatoes


"DH had this and must have liked it cuz I didn't hear any complaints."


"And that will be our last Disney meal."





But Chris had just a few more pics to send our way...



She said, "We are sitting at Leaping Horse Libations (Pool bar at the Boardwalk) waiting for the ME bus.

Here are a couple of drink menu pics..."












I then said to Chris, "No drink?"


To which she replied, "Yep. Here is my almost gone Bloody Mary."









And then I requested this last pic and Chris graciously granted my request...




"Ok. Here I am."

So sadly I said goodbye today to Chris. And then about 1/2 hour later I received the final update from Becky (BlovesC).
It was a sad, sad morning.




Becky said, "Our last meal brought us to WPE again! Here is the menu..."





Wolfgang Puck Express Menu





"Like a toddler, I wanted chicken tenders!"








"And honey mustard is MANDATORY for chicken tender!"








"Charlie got the Barbecue Chicken Pizza. He liked it, but not as much as the meatball one!"










"And for dessert we both got COOKIES! haha, no jk."













"We got the cheesecake and cream brulee! Are you going to deduct points for these since it's like the 90th time?!"






Again at my request, Becky sent this pic...





Becky headed home on the I4

So sad to see everyone leaving WDW, but I'm reminding myself that means I'm
Even closer to my own trip- 10 more days and I should be in Orlando!

Loving the Hoop de Doo photos, since I don't usually see them

Today was the end of both Chris' and Becky's trips, but it was the beginning for another veteran reporter, AlohaPolynesian.


She and her sister and nieces arrived at Disney World today and had their first Disney meal at Magic Kingdom's...



Pinocchio Village Haus







AlohaPolynesian said, "My sister had the Caprese pizza and my nieces each got the pepperoni pizza. My nieces are picky eaters and both loved this. My sister also finished hers and said it was "pretty good"."








"I am trying to eat vegan as much as possible and am on Weight Watchers, so I'm trying to be healthy whenever possible so that I won't feel guilty to splurge on the occasional treat. With that said, I ordered the Mediterranean Salad without chicken or cheese and used the olive oil vinaigrette. For a semi boring salad, it was actually pretty filling and tasty."




Then tonight AlohaPolynesian sent this update from...



Cosmic Ray's





Veggie Burger



She said, "My nieces ate dinner in the room and my sister wasn't hungry. So, I got this and ate it during Wishes. It was pretty decent for a veggie burger and very filling. Will tide me over 'til breakfast!"

And today was also a special day for another current reporter.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY, disneybride96!!!



She and her DH were also at Magic Kingdom today and had her birthday lunch at...


Columbia Harbour House





First a menu pic...









db96 said, "We got the fish & chips and fried shrimp combos and shared. The shrimp was by far the best."





Fried Shrimp Platter
Served with cole slaw and French Fries








Battered Fish Basket with French Fries





Then for their afternoon snack, the famous Dole Whip...







And for her birthday dinner, disneybride96 chose...


Be our Guest





"The Birthday Girl"


She said, "There have been a lot of BoG reviews. Our experience was the same as most. Good food, lacking service. Our waitress was sweet, but the bread and meals came out together and there was a lot of waiting. The family beside us ordered when we did, but we were finished with our meals before they were served."




Here's some food pics...





Thyme-scented Pork Rack Chop with au gratin macaroni, green beans and red wine au jus







Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops with seasonal vegetables served in puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce





And the dessert cart...








Last but not least, a pic with the Host...

There was a tie this morning for First Update of the Day, so both reporters will receive a Bonus point.


Sent to us by email, was the first update from a new reporter, dreamscometrue101.


She and her niece arrived at Disney World yesterday and had their first Disney meal at...









First a menu pic...








dreamscometrue101 said, "Drinks were just typical, soda and natural lemonade."








For an appetizer we shared the blue crab salad...




Uncle Gary's Blue Crab Salad
Avocado Filled with lump Blue Crab, roasted corn and red bell pepper. topped with crunchy crumb, spicy mayo and tomato crackers



"It was fresh and tasty but I didn't care for the crackers/bread it was served with."




"For dinner I opted for the Momma's recipes plate so I could give the chicken to my niece, and she had the kids chicken nuggets."




A sampling of Mom's favorite recipes
Crispy fried chicken, fork tender pot roast and traditional meatloaf with all the fixins









"The meatloaf is by far my favorite and I will likely order it as my entree when I'm down in October."


"We ended up splitting the Boston cream parfait but I neglected to take a picture of it."


"Service was terribly slow but friendly when she was there."

Hi Amy!

We do have three people lined up to do live reports during that time period, however if you think you'd like to give it a try, I'd be happy to have you on the team.

Then at about the same time this morning, we received the other First Update of the Day by text from another new reporter, CaliBear.


She and her DBF arrived at Disney World yesterday and their first meal was at...



Tusker House





CaliBear said, "Yesterday at lunch we made our own bread service for two."








"My first plate..."





"Everything was good, but I filled up on plantain and salad, and I wish I hadn't."





"BF's first plate..."





"He liked the spiced rice, but the curry rice with raisins was served on ice and he would've preferred it warm."







"Carving station plate: potato wedges, pork loin with sweet and sour mustard, mashed potatoes, samosa, and sirloin with horseradish."



"We liked everything but the potato wedges, which we found too salty. DBF said the samosa was his favorite."







"Desserts from top: Baklava, Chocolate Lava Cake, Chocolate Chip Bar, Lemon Square, Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce."


"I only had lava cake. It was good. DBF ate a little of each, but finished the two he liked best: the chocolate chip bar and the baklava."




"Overall, we liked Tusker House, but ambience played as much a part as the food did in our enjoyment. The characters were lots of fun with Goofy the star of the show. As for the food, we chose Tusker House for the African flavors but preferred the carving station offerings that aren't unique to this restaurant The African dishes were all a little salty and not spiced enough for our liking."
