I had to resist the urge to photograph my dinner tonight and send it to Barb even though I cooked it all. LOL...another of those Disney let down moments.

One of these days I'm going to get to V&As! It looked amazing!

Heather and her family had dinner last night at...




Pecos Bill's



A menu pic...








"We ordered two taco salads, fries (add cheese) and kids meal with chocolate cake."










Kids Turkey Sandwich with grapes and carrot sticks







Taco Salad after adding lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream from the Fixings Bar...






"The line was very long here, even at 9:00 p.m. and moved very slow but overall the meal was okay. It filled our bellies."

Heather also sent an update from their breakfast this morning at...


Akershus Royal Banquet Hall













Pics from the cold buffet...




































"The brown cheese was interesting. The flavor was good but the texture was weird for me. Like butter. The surprise was the peppered mackerel. DH and I really enjoyed it."







"The orange juice a bit was good but a bit more sour than Crystal Palace's."





Heather said, "Overall breakfast was decent. The bacon was excellent and the service was good.
My boys and Kaitlyn really enjoyed the princesses."

Next is another character breakfast update, this one from MichelleWDWfan.



She had breakfast on Tuesday morning at the Grand Floridian's...




1900 Park Fare



First a couple of buffet pics...














"Mickey Waffles with regular syrup and Bananas Foster syrup...yum!"








"The famous strawberry soup, definitely worth a try when at this restaurant."






"Birthday cupcake and placemat..."






"They give you this cute placement to take home with you."








"I was disappointed because Mad Hatter wasn't there. My server said he's usually there. I went specifically to see him. There was Mary Poppins, Alice, Pooh, Tigger, & Piglet. It's a great place to meet a lot of characters at once."

One last update for today, this one from 4HppyCamprs.


Heather said this about their day at Epcot, "This was an odd eating day since we ate so much at breakfast. We had a late lunch around 2:00.

The boys chose...



Liberty Inn



"Neither liked the kids meal offerings so one chose a chili cheese dog and grapes..."










"And our other son chose chicken nuggets (none on the kids menu, Undercover Tourist app menu was not correct)..."





"He chose fries. They were actually pretty tasty. I snuck one."




"The adults wanted fish and chips so we made our way to the UK, but first stopped at Japan for..."









Frushi (Fresh strawberries, pineapple and cantaloupe rolled with coconut rice, atop a raspberry sauce sprinkled with toasted coconut and whipped cream)


"This was pretty good. I felt like there could have been something added to push it into the really good range but as it was it was good. It gave us strength to push on to France..."










"...for a Grand Marnier & Grey Goose Slush. Delish as always."






"Then on to the Yorkshire County Fish Shop...






"We always stop here at some point during our Epcot days and it is very consistent. It is a slightly greasy meal. The fries were hot and fresh and have no need for extra salt. We were so tired we left the park around 6:00 and ate dinner in our room."




"Tomorrow is our last day and no one in my family could stand the thought of getting up at 6:00 a.m. again, especially with the drive home starting, so we cancelled Donald's Safari breakfast and will be winging it food wise tomorrow."

Very well said and I completely agree!!

On another note, we found our thoughts regarding Narcoosees to be very similar.

I just sent in my last 2 updates to Barb.
I wanted to say thank you for allowing me to paritcipate in live updates and share my experiences

I had so much fun taking pictures of my fantastic meals to share with all of you. I dined at more signatures this trip and the food was superb.

This was a learning experience for me & with practice I'll get better @ commenting on meals.

I found that being on the Dlx ddp, I had a bunch of snacks left over.
I ate breakfast & dinner everyday (did the signatures for dinner), and wasn't really hungry in between. A few times I did force some snacks...gotta have the deluxe Mickey Ice Cream, Hidden Mickey Rice krispie treat bar, and dole whip.

I did make it a point to try the Dole whip with Rum, Kaki Gori in Epcot, and Lefou's brew from Gaston's tavern. I wanted to try more from the food booths at Epcot but I was just so full I couldnt find any room to put it!

For those on the DDP. The Resort mugs are still the same as last years. I guess they are going to use them until they run out.

I can't wait to look at all of my photopass pics. I took over 350 during my week at Disney.

If anyone ever has questions, please feel free to ask me.

Now I am going to work on planning another trip!
I promised my DS 17, that I would take him for a long weekend this fall so we can attend MNSSHP. It will be our 1st time attending.

Thanks Barb, for all the time and effort you put into this thread, it is appreciated by all.

Sorry for the delay in getting your final updates posted, Michelle. Tonight my family went to see one of my favorite classic movies on the big screen, Singing in the Rain. Some of you may recall from my last dining report that I like to torture my kids sometimes in the morning by singing the "Good Morning" song to them.


But now it's time for Michelle's update from Magic Kingdom's...







Michelle said, "I had dinner there on Tuesday. I didn't have a reservation but realized I had one meal left on my DDP. I walked in and inquired about having dinner. They were very accommodating and seated me right away. This was right at the beginning of the dinner seating and the restaurant was practically empty.




Here is what Michelle had...





Zucchini Fries - baked seasoned zucchini with creamy sun-dried tomato dressing for dipping



"The zucchini fries were very good along with the dipping sauce provided with them, but I didn't get to enjoy them because my entree was brought out so quickly. Honestly, it was less than 5 minutes from the time they brought my appetizer."







Shrimp Scampi - Linguini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Asparagus tossed in a Garlic sauce


"This was delicious. There were lots of shrimp and they were a very nice size."







"Lovely picture on the wall above my booth."









"I had Tiramisu for dessert but I was so upset by the pacing of my meal that I forgot to take a picture. As soon as I was seated my server took my drink and appetizer order. She then brought out a bread service and took my entree order. My appetizer was presented within 5 minutes of ordering it. I ate 3 of my zucchini fries and my entree was delivered to the table. It was as if they had the entree already made and waiting to deliver to a customer. I was very disappointed in the timing."



Then Michelle said, "I have one more short snack update for you. I had several snack credits left to use at the end of the week because my meals were so wonderful I just wasn't hungry in the parks between breakfast and dinner. So I picked up a few goodies to bring home with me.








"Also I wanted to share these pictures of me and Snow White. I think she really liked my shirt."
















"That's the final update for me. Thank you very much for allowing me to participate in doing live updates, and for being so patient with me during my first try at live updating.
