Love the updates. Thinking of doing the Dine with an Imagineer with Andrew in August.

And Trails End is one place I have talked about for several trips and just never made it happen. Adding that to the August list now. (If I make any more changes to the March trip, Andrew's head will explode! )

Good morning everyone!

I received an update last night from elleavon!


She had just finished having dinner at AKL's...




BOMA






"First plate: Macaroni and cheese, tomato and eggplant salad, spinach with quinoa salad, artichoke lemon salad."

















Roasted chicken, carved roast sirloin, some kind of beef, and lamb quiche







Roast pork, chicken, beef, and a teaspoon of mac 'n cheese






Fresh fruit, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes




elleavon said, "I was pretty cautious, not having any idea what I was eating. Everything turned out to be pretty good. My favorite was the carved sirloin with 4 dipping sauces. None of them was too hot for me, and I'm kind of wimpy when it comes to spicy food."








Chocolate chip cookie, chocolate mousse bite, zebra dome, cheesecake bites, and gelatinous mango bite



"We loved the zebra domes."

I'm also excited to share with you this morning that I've heard from Linda (Linda67) and she was about to board the
Eurostar train that will take her to...

Disneyland Paris!














Linda said, "Having a not particularly exciting breakfast at London St. Pancras Train Station.
Waiting for my train to take me to Mickey!"

Re: Trails End

MRYPPNS - to answer your question about Trails End.....Yes, they have chicken breasts available as well as legs and thighs. Both fried and rotisserie. And as far as the kids go, there is pizza and Mac and cheese, but no fries or chicken nuggets. But the fried chicken is amazing! It is one of our families favorite restaurants on property.

Great to see the Dine with an Imagineer update!! The soup and salad looked great. Sad that the filet was overdone. I hate when cooks ruin meat...it's cruel and unusual punishment!

Can't wait to see the updates from DLP! That cup of porridge from Starbucks was too cute!

Thank you for the response. Our group of 10 are switching to Trail's End from Cape May after seeing your buffet pictures

And now for an update from Linda (Linda67) about her first day at...


Disneyland Paris






"I'm here!"







"20th Anniversary Décor"







"A Very Quiet Main Street"







"The beautiful castle"








"My lunch was at the Market House Deli on Main Street."







"Cheese, pesto and sun dried tomato bruschetta (it was around 7 Euros)."


"This was really good. The pesto and sun dried tomatoes added great flavor. It's a really nice place to stop for lunch and it had a great view of Main St."







"A menu picture!"








'Whilst waiting for the parade I picked up a cappuccino and a wonderful 20th anniversary chocolate cookie. Mmm - delicious! The coffee in Disneyland Paris is actually pretty good and the cookie was great!"

"I sat outside in a little courtyard and the sun was shining which is very lucky for a February day in Paris."










"I am staying at the Hotel New York so I popped into the "New York City Bar" for a pre-dinner drink. This was a glass of the 20th anniversary Merlot and it was excellent. It was served with nuts and olives."

"It's a really nice bar, good atmosphere and friendly staff."





Then Linda's dinner was at...





"Took this earlier today do you could see it better in the daylight!"








The Mediterran​ean Wrap
Tuna, Feta, Olives, Salad and Mediterranean dressing



"Earl Of Sandwich is in the Disney Marketplace (essentially Downtown Disney) and is directly opposite my hotel. The food is every bit as good as in Orlando - I really enjoyed this. I even practiced my French when I ordered it." ;-)

"That's it for today!"

Let's start out today with a few pics that elleavon sent last night.


The first is a snack update from POFQ's...




Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory





Beignets



"We took a quick boat ride to French Quarter for beignets. Hot! Yum!"






They also had lunch at Animal Kingdom's...


Tamu Tamu Refreshments





Fresh Fruit Salad



"We split the shredded beef pita for one entrée and the fruit salad for the other. The presentation of the fruit salad in a half pineapple was so fun, and it was a huge amount of cool, refreshing fruit...just what our refined sugar-filled bodies needed!
I would happily order both items again!"





Then from their dinner at POR's...

Riverside Mill





Apple Blossom Dessert - apple pastry served warm with vanilla ice cream


"My pics from dinner at the POR quick service somehow vanished. All that remains is this photo of the apple blossom.
We've eaten several of these and expect to have at least one more before we leave Friday."

Hey Linda, hope you are enjoying the sun again today here Shame that the temperature has dropped a bit. EMH must have been chilly

Might be snow coming if you are still here this weekend

Look forward to the TR and don't forget to add your food reviews/photos to the restaurant reviews over with us

ps - The coffee is "good" for a theme park if you've got milk in it but don't try it black it's horrible

Next is Our First Update of the Day from elleavon.


This is from their dinner at the Grand Floridian Resort's...




Grand Floridian Cafe





Panko crusted Lump Crab Cake - Carrot, parsnips, and celery root slaw, chipotle tartar sauce


elleavon said, "I started with a crab cake. No one wanted to share. Lucky me!"





"Griff had the New York strip. He said, "It was good, cooked right, smashed potatoes were awesome." I had the Grand Floridian burger. Obviously, putting lobster on a burger is a splendid idea."





Grand Floridian Burger - Angus chuck burger, buttered poached lobster with red onion marmalade, crispy prosciutto and arugula on a Brioche bun with chips







Grilled Pork Chop served with black eyed peas and arugula



"Hannah had the pork chop, which was tasty, but she didn't like the black eyed peas and arugula it was served on. Our fabulous server, Martin, happily brought her some brown rice instead. This was the best service of our trip."




Then for their dessert...




Dessert Sampler - includes Fresh berry tart, Boston cream pie, key lime tart, lemon cheesecake and a chocolate Mickey


"All of these were superb!"




And one last close-up shot...
