Thank you for posting this! I always wanted to order that dessert and we'll have 3 adults on the DxDP next time we're there so this is going on the list of must do's!

Next we received these Animal Kingdom updates from DaisyluvzGoofy.



She said, "Sorry for the late postings. We've been exhausted and took advantage of all the time in the park we could get!"

"Thursday AM was breakfast at..."


Tusker House












"First photo was mine: I wasn't feeling so great so I didn't eat much. My favorite item were the blintzes. I wish they had a little more crisp to them but they had a great sweet flavor to the cream filling. I was also a fan of their breakfast juice.
Quite unique!!"









"DH's plate is the second, with the donuts. He said he had been craving some so this served it purpose.
He also liked the sausage patties instead of links."















"Overall this served the purpose of getting us close to the safari for park opening and we had a great time on that!"






Dino Bite Snacks





"We had this snack from "Dino-Bites" next to Restaurantosaurus. It was cheaper than the cone and had more ice cream.
The cookies were soft and full of chocolate. I would certainly get this again!"






Pretzel & Lemonade Stand




Frozen Mango Rum Lemonade



A menu pic...





"I had a "Lost on safari" at the bar outside of Tusker House but forgot to take a photo. It was pretty strong and a great value for the money. As we were walking towards our fastpasses for Everest we noticed one of the snack stands had a Frozen Mango Rum Lemonade, sounded good so I thought I'd give it a try. It was Awesome!!! It was much more mango than lemonade. Was not bitter but packed a punch!!!"



"We rode Everest and decided to get out of AK before the parade started and head back into MK for a few rides we missed because of the crowds early in the week."

"It was pretty good, but needed more BBQ sauce. Luckily they have that at their toppings bar!"



And some menu pics...

One more update was received from DaisyluvzGoofy today.



She said, "We hit up a bunch of rides, then headed for the boat to the...


Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue


"I have to admit, the food and drink sucked me in, and I forgot to take pictures. We finally experienced some Disney Magic on this reservation! We paid for Cat. 3 seats, and were seated on the floor in the middle of the room! Best seats! They even picked on my dad during the opening number. It was too cute! He was such a good sport! We originally planned this to be just a DH and I reservation, but my parents showed interest in going so we added them on. Good thing for DH, because he very much hates audience participation, and I've got a good feeling DH would have been picked on in that opening number instead of dad!"







"For our review of the food: Chicken was a bit dry for our tastes, but adding the extra BBQ sauce at the bottom of the ribs pail helped a lot! The ribs were excellent! Fall off the bone and sweet! The corn bread and the strawberry shortcake were our favorite overall items. Dad and I had the sangria, which wasn't too bitter or too sweet, but fairly potent."

Thanks!! I'm SO EXCITED to be part of this! Been up since 6am for work and am STILL UP packing last minute things. I make no promises of remembering to capture my first Disney meal at this point. But here's where we're eating:

Mon - 50's Prime Time Cafe dinner for dad's birthday
Thurs - 'Ohana breakfast for mom's birthday
Fri - Supercalifragilistic breakfast for sis' treat

We're likely to hit a lot of typicals beyond that but who knows! It's Disney!

What perfect timing! I had just decided to take a short break from studying for midterms (by checking this thread ) and the first thing I see is Emily and Brenda's Jiko update! It's great to hear that the food was solid, and I'm hoping the new places they're trying will continue to impress.

Now I have a lot more updates to read

The restaurant was very clean! They had a great deal of wait staff around making sure the turnover was done quickly as well. They were consistently changing up the foods to make sure they were hot as well!!

I gnocchi as well! Just looking at the menu, they were the selling point. I was a bit confused when it came out, because they looked like scallops!! But, overall, now that our trip is over, THIS DISH was my absolute favorite!!!

ATTN: MARCH REPORTERS


Since we were somewhat short on game participants during the first part of February and it looks like we will again be short in March (*see Note below), I've decided to continue the February Game throughout the month of March. I've made only one addition regarding the Flower & Garden food & beverage kiosks. Each item from these kiosks that is included in an update will be worth 1 snack point.


LINK TO FEBRUARY/MARCH GAME RULES


Here are the volunteers I have so far, with trips beginning 3/1 - 3/29 (those arriving on 3/30 & 3/31 will be considered part of the April team):

Stini228
emmebear
woodleygrrl
#1eeyoregirl
carmie3377
dvc4life
DannysMom
GoofySon'sMom
podsnel
Arielle71

If I have forgotten anyone who has volunteered, please let me know. I will be sending out a PM to all of you today to confirm that you are still on board to do live updates. This PM will give you my info for sending your updates.


*Note: We are still badly in need of live reporters during the middle part of March. For most days from March 11 - March 21, we have only one volunteer so far (even have a few days with no volunteers). So if your trip falls anytime within this time frame, please consider doing some live updates for us.


Here are the volunteers I have so far for trips beginning 3/30 through the end of June (again if I have forgotten anyone, please let me know):

APRIL
KMarston - 3/30 - 4/6

Let's get started now with today's updates, beginning with our First Update of the Day sent to us by Emily & Brenda. (JustEmmy & emmysmommy)


Breakfast this morning was at the Animal Kingdom Lodge's...




BOMA






"Sausage, corned beef, fresh pineapple, and bread pudding with caramel pecan sauce."






"Omelet with mushrooms, onion, and cheese."






"Grilled asparagus, scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, and turkey bobotie."








"Waffles (above) and chocolate chip pancakes (below)."











"Earl Grey tea and "jungle" juice (I believe it is a mix of orange, passionfruit, and mango juice). The Earl Grey was very nice, and they will bring cream, honey, or lemon for it as well."



Emily said, "Like Jiko, again this was very good."



2 February Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for First Update of the Day

Next up are some updates from DaisyluvzGoofy, starting with some snacking around Epcot's World Showcase.


She said, "Friday was our last day in the parks and our favorite, Epcot! We at breakfast at home so we didn't start eating... or drinking for that matter, until later in the afternoon. DH and I headed back into Les Halles for some snacks! "


Les Halles





"We shared a Apple Turnover and baguette, as well as I had a Napoleon and DH had a Chocolate Croissant. The Baguette was perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Ask them for butter!! The Apple Turnover was really flaky and delicious. I wasn't impressed with the Napoleon because it was impossible to eat!!! The layers were soggy already and I had to eat each layer individually because it was just flat impossible!! DH loved the croissant but wished it had more chocolate in it. (Don't we all?!?!?)"






Then a stop at the Mitsukoshi store in Japan to...





Pick-a-Pearl


"I got a 7 3/4 mm pink pearl!! Whooohooo!!!"





Then on to Germany...






"I had the Oktober Fest beer & a pretzel outside of Germany, where the sign is from, but I forgot to take a picture of it!!!"




"We then headed over to get some treats next door at..."


Karamell Kuche

























"I had the pretzel stick with caramel & pecans (the one my mom is holding). The pecans on it tasted like honey roasted peanuts, and it was amazing!!! My dad had a chocolate and caramel covered pineapple. He really enjoyed it. We also snacked on some of the freshly made caramel corn, that was irresistible after watching it being made!"












Daisy added, "I included a bunch of pictures from inside Karamell Kuche, which doesn't describe how small that shop really is! It may be small, but boy oh boy does it smell wonderful. Ahhhh... I miss it already!!!"





"After finishing my beer in Germany, I headed to China for my reward... Tipsy Ducks in Love!!"


Joy of Tea



















"This drink was great! And they weren't skimpy on the Jim Beam!!! The drink was nice and strong! It had a great balance of chocolate and coffee flavors. I agree that if you like Bailey's you'd like this drink. We thought about getting a second but we wanted to keep moving."





Kringla Og






"DH ran ahead while we were enjoying the Tipsy Duck to Norway to grab School Bread. He apparently saw this on the thread and had to have one. I totally forgot about them, but it was great! They tasted really fresh, light and very creamy. If you don't like coconut then don't bother with this!!"
