Time for just a quick update before I have to leave again to run some errands. Sadly, we haven't received anything yet from Disney World, but I did receive this Disney-related update from Kathymford.


Kathy said, "So for Valentines Day my DBF Steve surprised me with a Lady and the Tramp dinner and a movie date at Disneys Soda Fountain and Studio Store here in Hollywood, CA. For those that dont know, the studio store is attached to the Disney-owned El Capitan Theatre. It was such a great surprise and so well done as you will see below!"







"Table Set Up&it matched the poster that was on the walls behind us!!"








"There was also a special gift of an entwined Lady and Tramp swizzle stick. LOVED THIS!"








"We had a choice of soup or salad, and we both chose the minestrone soup."








"The star of the show, the spaghetti and meatballs. We noticed our plate had a few fewer meatballs than the one in the movie poster. LOL. But after watching the movie, we realized our mistake was not asking for double meatballs!
*DISNEY NERD ALERT*"









"Our complimentary Valentines Day picture. Not too shabby!"








"OMG! As you can see, I almost forgot to take a picture of this. It was so good. Brownie with vanilla ice cream and a strawberry drizzle of some sort. Perfect!"

Jabead, congrats on your upcoming trip! Any ADRs? Trying anyplace new?

We are going in May - arriving Wed 5/8 and leaving Mon 5/20. It's just DH and I as DD is in college. For the first time we are trying DxDP. I know, it will be way too much food, but it lets me justify trying a ton of restaurants including ones that are not so often seen on this thread.

The trouble is that we are not 'camera people' and DH wants us not to take any internet-connected devices with us. I see his point; it's one way of assuring that we really do get away from the real world and focus on WDW and each other rather than getting sucked into e-mail and the net. If he has his way there will just be 1 cell phone and it will mostly stay locked in the safe in the room.

So until that is resolved I can't say whether I can volunteer or not. I'd like to, if only because I have gained so much from this thread and would like to give back a little. I'll let you know as time gets closer.

Next we received an update from Couchy and her DH from aboard the...

Disney Wonder




Lunch today before setting sail was at

Parrot Cay







Couchy said, "My plate with shrimp (which was very good and fresh), salmon, pasta with goat cheese and salad.
I did not care for the carved beef but DH loved it."









"DH's plate with much of the same. He got mashed potatoes, which he enjoyed."








"We split a plate of desserts. The raspberry parfait was my fav. DH likes the chocolate brownie and cheesecake.
The fresh fruit salad was delicious."









"And of course we split a Hendricks on the rocks."

Barb, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know we changed up our dates by a day. We are now arriving 2/24 and departing 3/2. I just booked our trip today. And I leave for FL (to go house hunting) TOMORROW. This will be a girls ONLY trip. Me and my 3 girls and we invited my mom to tag along. We finally decided to stay at CS. We were going to stay at BC but decided to spend the $ on other things. I can't wait to start sending you our updates!
Oh and Congrats on the vacation!!

Now back to Disney World and Downtown Disney, this time with nicole0992.



She had lunch today at...













She said, "I had the Bacon wrapped meatloaf with mashed potatoes and onion rings, in a port wine sauce. This was absolutely delicious. I did pick off most of the bacon since it was soft and too chewy."








"My daughter had the Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo without the peas and bacon. She loved it!"








"Youngest daughter had the margherita pizza again."









"A friend joining us had the spaghetti and meatballs. It was delicious. Very light sauce and flavorful meatballs."





And for their desserts...












"We had two cheesecakes with strawberries, frozen yogurt with brownies, and a sugar cookie for desserts. Sorry just realized I lost the picture of the sugar cookie. It was just a basic cookie with sprinkles. Nothing exciting."

Our next and probably last update for today was also from nicole0992.



This one is from their dinner at Epcot's...

















Chicken Parmigiana
- traditional preparation with tomato sauce, parmesan and mozzarella, served with roasted potatoes








Spaghetti e Polpettine - hand-crafted veal meatballs & tomato sauce


"We had the chicken parmigiana and also ordered spaghetti and veal meatballs to have with our chicken. I need pasta with my chicken parm and they don't allow any substitutions."


"The piece of chicken was huge and great for splitting. These two dishes together were perfect. The spaghetti and meatballs were delicious. Not exactly like Tutto's but delicious just the same."








"Youngest daughter had (SURPRISE) the margherita pizza. She just turned 12, btw."





Then for dessert...





Tiramisu







Pistachio Gelato


"I like the tiramisu here better than the one at Tutto. It's not the same, which is good to keep things different between the two Italian pavilion restaurants."
