Yay, a TR from DVC Mike!

Love the pictures, which are still better on your iPhone than they would be if I were taking them on my camera.

Thanks to your great report, I'm getting even more excited about the new food booths for F&G - I'll be there in less than 7 weeks - woo hoo!

Wow! If they keep up this Food and Wining the Flower and Garden Festival, I'll be sure to want to come back!

Great photos and the food sounds really tasty!

So, later in the afternoon, with the sun low in the sky, I walked around World Showcase once again. Since the sun was low, the photos have a lot of shadows. It was pretty crowded.

I had the Spiced Lamb Kebab with couscous salad at Morocco. The lamb was tasty.

In Italy, I tried the Lasagna Primavera - Spinach Lasagna, green peas, zucchini, mushrooms, broccolini, béchamel and fresh tomatoes with garlic and basil leaves. It was so-so. Nothing special, so I wish I had passed on it.

Back at the Smokehouse, I tried the Rocky Road Brownie Mousse. Yes, it was a brownie on the bottom covered with mousse with some marshmallows and nuts. A lot of chocolate, but good.

Finally, I went to the Florida Fresh booth and tried the Angel Food Cake with macerated Florida Berries. It was pretty good.

Love the pics! The desserts look great. I am going to have to double up my time at the gym just so I can eat all of these treats . I have read on other reviews that the lasagna was just so so and to skip it, so I I shall. I am really looking forward to the smoke house

Great pictures for a phone. If I was a camera company I would be worried about my future.

I went to the kick-off show for the Epcot Flower & Garden festival "Flower Power" concert series featuring Micky Dolenz of the Monkees. He performed hits like "Last Train to Clarksville" and "I'm a Believer". He was pretty good!

OK, so my feet are sore from all the walking I did this past week. I don't know how many times I walked around World Showcase. I only visited Epcot this trip, and never got around to even going on one ride or attraction.

I spent the late morning and early afternoon at SAB, and ate a nice grilled chicken sandwich and drank a couple beers at Hurricane Hanna's Grill, which is a pretty nice pool bar.

Now, I'm back in the room. Below is the view from my balcony.

I'm back home in Charlotte today. Goodbye, Beach Club.

Next trip will be the Villas at the Grand Californian in May.

Wow, thanks for all of the pics and info. Was your balcony on the 5th floor. Beautiful view! We were in room 560 last August. It's the one with the HUGE circular balcony. We LOVED it.

I am taking my 91 year old mother to the Beach Club in May for F & G. She was only at the Magic Kingdom once, shortly after it opened (when that was the only park) She has never been to Epcot and has always wanted to see the countries. So we too will only do Epcot. The pace is going to be much, much slower than I'm used to .

Will be looking forward to your pics and TR from VGC!
