Thank you. We had a problem with bank fraud that marred our Christmas, New Year's and birthday celebrations. It is nice to be out of that shadow!

Below I have listed all the DISers who have generously offered to do "Live Reporter" duty during their February trips to Disney World. If I have forgotten anyone, please let me know. (Things were a little hectic here earlier this month and I may have forgotten to add someone to the list. ) Also, if there is anyone else going in February and would like to give live reporting a try, please let me know by posting here or sending me a PM. I should be able to squeeze in a few more, depending on your trip dates.

I am putting the finishing touches on the details for the February game. It will be very similar to the January one, with some minor tweaking to the point values. As soon as it is complete, I will add it to the next post. I will then be sending out a PM to the whole February team, which will give you my info for sending your updates. Once you have received this, I ask that you either post here on the thread or reply by PM to let me know that you have received it and are still on board.

Thanks so much February Team! I hope you all have great trips, filled with lots of delicious food...and don't forget to take those pics.

I so love checking in on this thread every day or two and seeing all of the goodies. It's actually shaping my decisions for August ADRs which I need to make in a couple of weeks.

I'll do August if you are still running the thread. We'll have iphones, so it'll be easier than relying on the wifi at the resorts.

Really excited to be on board - just 26 days to go before we gorge ourselves with more ADR's & signature restaurants than I can count



Now we wil be there until 7th March, so thats another one taking you closer to that 10th March possible cut off.

Really sad that you are considering the end of this, but can't imagine how much hard work you put into it, so thank you very much from me and my co-eater. Whether it finishes in 7 weeks or carries on, it has been fabulous.

Ok, now that I have all my "threadkeeping" duties done in preparation for next month, how about some updates from our current live reporters.


Our First Update of the Day today was received from hulagirl87.


She said, "We are at Tusker House this morning. It's loud!!!"












"This is DH's plate. He loved the biscuits and the bacon."

Next I received a couple of quick updates from emmebear this morning. She and Emme set sail on their week long cruise on the Fantasy today.






emmebear said, "On our way to Port Canaveral!"




Then later I received this pic and text from emmebear...




Mimosa from the Concierge Lounge


emmebear said, "The WiFi connection stinks. I'm trying to send you pics.
This boat is incredible! The one bedroom suite is so beautiful!"

Next in this morning was an update from CaliBear.


She and her DBF had dinner on Thursday night at...




'Ohana


CaliBear said, "I'm sure you can guess from this first photo where we ate: 'Ohana! This was DBF's choice. It was a late dinner, 9:20 ADR and they were running 20 min. behind."






"The bread was good. It tastes like King's Hawaiian but heartier."








"This photo doesn't do justice to how much salad is in that bowl. They gave the two of us enough for 4 or 5. I took the fruit (mango? I think) out of my portion and it was delicious without it."









"Here are the chicken wings and potstickers. DBF loved the potstickers."








"Next the noodles and stir-fried vegetables, which was mostly broccoli. Very good!"








"This is why DBF wanted to eat here: meat! I loved the pork and chicken the best. His favorite was the shrimp, but it was the potstickers that he liked best of everything."









"And last the bread pudding dessert. So much food, but everything was good."

Then we received an update from tallen429.


She and her mom and DS had breakfast this morning at...



Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory






"Logan had the kids' Mickey waffle platter with grapes. He inhaled his food and really enjoyed it but who doesn't love a Mickey waffle!"







"Mom and I shared a Western Omelette with home fries and a side of sausage. Our omelette was actually really good and the home fries were cooked really nicely. We enjoyed all of it. And of course, you know we had to have beignets!"





"We each had one and they were well cooked, sweet, and wonderful! We really, really enjoyed them!"

February Reporter checking in...

I will be there 2 weeks from today! Still haven't completely finalized our ADRs due to my daughter's College Program work schedule. I have to wait until next Sunday to know when she will be able to dine with us while we are there. This is not good for a planner like me... I'll keep you posted!

I just wanted to say thank you Barb for all your hard work on this thread. It must be a lot of work but I check it multiple times a day and get so much enjoyment out of it. It truly makes me feel like I am right there in Disney and is helping so much with upcoming trip planning. This thread is like a mini vacation.

I don't often comment but I just want to let you know how much I appreciate it even if I mostly lurk. I am so grateful for your hard work!
