Do it Donald! We have been to Jiko several times, and this was easily the best trip we've had there. The service was friendly-- at one point we had the manager sitting at our table sharing Disney apps with us. And the food w out of this world good, not just solid, but above and beyond.

I agree! I also thought the mac and cheese was no longer available.

They kept the mac and cheese on the Kids menu, therefore it's still available to substitute as a side dish. However, personally I think the spoon bread that currently accompanies the filet sounds pretty good.

We're tentatively adding it in! Jiko is one of our favorite WDW restaurants (the other is Artist Point), but based on the most recent online menus we were okay skipping both. I'm just really hoping the menu doesn't change at all over the next week.

Have a great trip! I will be especially interested in reading updates for Universal Studios and Seaworld. We are doing UO, SW and Disney in August. We plan on eating at Three Broomsticks but have nothing planned for lunch at US and SW.

Let's get started on today's updates, shall we?


First Update of the Day was sent to us this morning by Wendydagny.


Wendy and (part of) her family had breakfast today at the Polynesian Resort's..






She said, "DH decided to sleep in, but I wasn't skipping these..."



Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and bacon

"Absolutely divine. Perfect blend of salty, sweet, and crunchy."






Her DS chose...




Kid's Ham and Vegetable Scramble with side of fruit

"He was thrilled it included broccoli."




While her DD had...




Goofy Toast with side of fruit - Only Goofy would fry an egg in the middle of a piece of toast

"She was excited for this because I never cook eggs with runny yolks because they wig me out."

Then it's back to Wendydagny and her lunch update from Epcot's...













Wendy started with a Magical Star cocktail...



Magical Star Cocktail
Light up your celebration with X-Fusion Organic Mango and Passion Fruit Liqueur, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Pineapple Juice, and a souvenir Multicolored Glow Cube



"Chosen solely because it's fun to glow in the dark."



And for her appetizer...




Seared Scallops with English Peas, Red Onion Marmalade, Carrot Puree, Pea Tendrils, and Smoked Bacon Snow


"Nice sear and the puree and onion marmalade added some nice flavor."



"DH and the kids had the soup..."



Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead Beer and "Nueske's" Applewood-smoked bacon





"DH and I both had the filet..."



"Le Cellier" Mushroom Filet Mignon
8-oz "AAA" Canadian Beef Tenderloin with Wild Mushroom Risotto, Pickled Pearl Onions and White Truffle-Butter Sauce

"This has changed with the addition of the pickled onions, which neither of us loved. The filet was good but nowhere near Jiko. Still, in our opinion, the best "in park" meal."




"DD had the Kid's steak..."



Grilled Sirloin with Brown Rice and Green Beans

"She said the flavor was good, but Jiko was better. And the rice was bland and boring."




"DS had the Kid's Salmon..."




Seared Salmon with French Fries and Green Beans


"Which he declared delicious, and cleaned his plate."




For dessert, both the kids had...




Chocolate Mousse

"Which was a hit."




While both their parents had...



Maple Créme Brulée


"Which was yummy."

I had a nice surprise today when I received this text from a reporter who I thought was not arriving until Wednesday.


She said, "Forgot to tell you I added 2 days! I flew out this morning first thing. It's just me until Wednesday. After adding 2 days to our trip, DH's boss scheduled a mandatory meeting. Oh well, guess I will start without him."





So, I'm happy to announce that now up to the Disney Dining Plate is...





Couchy











Couchy is at Disney World from 7/1 - 7/8 and she has volunteered to again do live updates for us!





HAVE A GREAT TRIP, Couchy!!!
