I see you will be staying at the Boardwalk Resort during your trip...my personal favorite.

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!

I'm so glad that you are enjoying the thread. It is posts like yours that keep me going with this. Thanks so much for coming forth to comment!

Thanks Vicki! I am still hoping to take that week off, if you know what I mean. But if not, then I would love to have you doing live updates again. It would definitely help me get over my disappointment.

Now for a final update from AlohaPolynesian, who's trip ended on Thursday.



She said, "Returned to work yesterday and was swamped so I never had a chance to send a final update. Per my 5 year old niece's request, my last lunch with them was at Pizza Planet at DHS! I have only eaten at the Pizza Planet in DLR, so this was new to me."



Toy Story Pizza Planet



"I asked the CM to get the veggie pizza without cheese, and she huffed and puffed and said "yes but it is going to take a really long time....". I said that was fine and she huffed and puffed and said it will also take a really long time to put the order in and am I sure I just don't want a regular one with the cheese?"





Vegetable Pizza (no cheese)


"Our order also included a kids meal with cheese pizza and an adult pepperoni pizza. I got a non-Caesar salad with Italian dressing instead of the normal Caesar salad. Everyone enjoyed their food!"





"Also wanted to show a photo of my soy latte being made at the Poly Kona Island coffee/sushi bar. They use the same tube they use in the regular milk, which I can't believe and think is gross. She just shoved the tube in a box of soymilk."







"This caught my eye so I watched her make the drink. I never saw her put in espresso, so I asked to make sure. She said she did. My drink tasted super sweet but I thought maybe it was just the soymilk they used or something. However right around 4PM I got that lovely caffeine withdrawal headache. So I was right - she did forget the espresso! Had to get some Nescrap from the Lunching Pad in MK to attempt to save myself!"

Next we have the first update from a new reporter, arbolita.


Theresa and her DH, Scott, arrived at Disney World and their first meal was at Downtown Disney's...




Raglan Road







Theresa said, "We just finished our first Disney meal (and our only one for the day, as going off property to meet up with friends for dinner)."







Irish Soda Bread with Guinness reduction






Beefy Brisket Sandwich & Onion Rings
Braised beef brisket on multigrain roll with caramelized onions & horseradish cream



"I had the Beefy Brisket. It was delicious, except the menu said it came with a horseradish sauce, which I saw on the sandwich but didn't really taste. The beef was fantastic though!"




And some close up shots...



















Keen eye for the Shepherd’s Pie


"My husband had the Shepherd's Pie. He enjoyed it, but not as much as during a previous trip. I think he's gotten used to my recipe and doesn't like anything as much as mine, haha."









"For dessert, Ger's Bread and Butter pudding. It was my main reason for coming here, and it was delicious, as always!"




"I also took a picture turning myself into Mickey Mouse."

Then we have a lunch update sent by tallen429 from Magic Kingdom's...


Sleepy Hollow



Tricia said, "I had the idea to get the waffle sandwiches from Sleepy Hollow and surprise mom and Logan. We all shared one prosciutto ham and Swiss waffle sandwich and one Nutella and fruit. And also got one iced mocha."




Prosciutto Ham & Swiss Cheese Waffle Sandwich






Nutella and Fruit Waffle Sandwich


Tricia said, "I liked the Nutella but only a couple of bites. It was very sweet. Logan liked it! The ham and swiss is good but the cream cheese type spread they put on it I didn't care for. I can't pinpoint why. The iced mocha was very refreshing and not too sweet."

And now we have a great update from CaliBear, regarding her attempt to "Eat Around the World" yesterday at Epcot.


Let's see how they did, shall we?



She said, "We had already eaten in Canada, and they don't have anything quick and easy anyway so our plan was to do 10 countries. Originally we had planned to begin with breakfast at Les Halles since they open early, but we slept in and puttered around the resort so it was lunchtime by the time we got there."



From Mexico's La Cantina de San Angel...




Nachos and churritos with caramel sauce


"These were both delicious. The churros did not need any sauce, as they were wonderful as is, but we enjoyed the sauce as a bonus."




From Norway's Kringla Og Bakery...




School Bread


"DBF took the plate and exclaimed, "Wow, it's heavy."






An inside look


"Here's the creamy inside. We liked this a lot, especially the sugary glaze mixed with coconut."




From China's Lotus Blossom Café...




Potstickers


"These were too soft and a little gummy. We decided to grab something to drink at Joy of Tea..."




Tipsy Ducks in Love - Creamy Cold tea and coffee combo


"It turns out they have an assortment of bao there and we wished we'd tried them instead of the potstickers, but we needed to save room. We had yueng yang at Joy of Tea, also called "Tipsy Ducks in Love". This is tea and coffee mixed together with milk. You can also get this with whisky and with whipped cream, but mine has neither. I liked this a lot. I'm sure it's great with the whiskey too."

Continuing CaliBear's quest to Eat around the World with Germany.








From Germany's Sommerfest...




Bratwurst served with sauerkraut on a roll


"I don't like the sauerkraut so DBF took it off and ate it as a side. He said it was good. I had my portion of brat with that gulden's mustard. He had his with ketchup. The sausage itself was yummy. The bread seemed a little stale."



From Italy's Via Napoli...




Arancini - fried risotto balls filled with mozzarella and meat ragu


"The Italy pavilion really needs to sell pizza by the slice. But it doesn't so we had arancini from Via Napoli. I'd never had this and I thought it was very good. DBF thought there was too much risotto, not enough meat and cheese, but he liked it for what was there."





An inside look




From the American Pavilion's Fife & Drum...




Cream Cheese Stuffed Pretzel


"We tried the cream cheese pretzel, not the jalapeno one. We thought this was disgusting. Half of it went in the trash. The pretzel itself was yummy, but the cream cheese filling was way too sweet."



"At this point it was 5:00 p.m. and we had 2 1/2 hours until our ADR at Teppan Edo, so we decided to stop and go shopping for awhile."


Stay tuned for Part III

CaliBear's next update was from dinner at Japan's...


Teppan Edo



"Fortunately Teppan Edo let us split our meal. They did let us know that once the chef started cooking, we could not order more food.

We started with..."





Assorted Tempura - shrimp, chicken breast and seasonal vegetables served with Japanese tempura dipping sauce


"We enjoyed this. What's not to like?"







"Onion volcano. So cute."






Filet Mignon with seasonal vegetables and udon noodles




And for dessert...





Chocolate Ginger Cake


"We loved this."


Stay Tuned for Part IV (the final installment)

So what do you think, did CaliBear and her DBF admit defeat and call it a night after their dinner at Teppan Edo?


HECK NO!!!




They forged on to Morocco, where they picked up this from the Tangeriene Cafe...




Baklava





And then it was on to France's...



Les Halles











"We got to Les Halles around 10:00. We were sad we didn't get here earlier since everything looked delicious. It was very crowded, even this late at night."


They chose...




Cheese Plate
(Also pictured is the shortbread they bought from the UK's Twinings Tea Shop)



"We had the baklava for breakfast this morning, along with the cheese plate from Les Halles and the shortbread. We felt bad cheating with the shortbread, but the only "to go" option we could find was a cheese plate from the pub. Sounds good, but maybe next time since we already had the French cheese plate. We liked all 5 cheeses, but especially the blue cheese. The baklava was good too."


"So we didn't get them all in one day and we have one pre-packaged item, but we had fun and now we know where we want to try more from next trip (France and Mexico in particular) and where we want to skip (China, at least Lotus Blossom)."

Well that's all for tonight folks, but I'll be back tomorrow with the rest of today's great updates. Let's see we have an update from hulagirl87's day at Animal Kingdom (including lunch at Flame Tree) and dinner back at Captain Cook's. There's also an excellent dinner update from Jiko sent by tallen429, as well as the final update from CaliBear, who's trip ended today.

Much to look forward to, so be sure to check back tomorrow!
