~Amanda~
Hi Amanda - I miss you! It was so great to meet at last! We still can't decide about next years trip - we really want to go to Florida at Christmas (2010) (well and evry other month!!) but I don't want to lose my 20% discount on the Med cruise!! I am going to get in contact with Disney about pushing the dates back and joining you all on a later cruise again I think!

I don't think so, but a couple of people from our cruise thread are! We had such a good time! Have you done a cruise?

I need to catch up on your TR - haven't had a chance since we got back!!

Can't wait for this report. Your reviews will help me decide where to make our ADR's for our fall trip.

So far so good. Your meal at Riverside looked delicious. Your pasta choices sounded yummy.

You looked beautiful in that dress! I love the flowers on it. DH looks rather dashing as well!

Looking forward to more

Oh...but Digestives just wouldn't do this receipe justice...they are lacking a certian flavour that the Graham Crackers have...maybe someone from this side of the pond will have to send some Graham Crackers to you.

Now that being said...hello all and thank you Sonya for your wonderful reports. I have been a Disney fan for years (even was a Cast Member with the Stores in Toronto for 6 years) but it wasn't until our last trip in Aug 08 that I discovered the Dis. My dh and I were doing a search while planning our ADRs and Sonya's food report came up. Needless to say we read every word of it and we are now hooked (on Dis and Sonya's reports!) I am looking forward to this years instalment. We are in the process of planning our Nov/Dec 09 trip so maybe we will get some ideas from your report!!!

Tracey

you dont have Graham Crackers! How do you make S'mores?

Graham Cracker Recipe
2 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unbleached pastry flour or unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
7 tablespoons (3 1/2 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes and frozen
1/3 cup mild-flavored honey, such as clover
5 tablespoons whole milk
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

For the topping:
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Pulse or mix on low to incorporate. Add the butter and pulse on and off on and off, or mix on low, until the mixture is the consistency of a coarse meal.

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, milk, and vanilla extract. Add to the flour mixture and pulse on and off a few times or mix on low until the dough barely comes together. It will be very soft and sticky.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and pat the dough into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Wrap in plastic and chill until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.

To prepare the topping: In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon, and set aside.

Divide the dough in half and return one half to the refrigerator. Sift an even layer of flour onto the work surface and roll the dough into a long rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. The dough will be sticky, so flour as necessary. Trim the edges of the rectangle to 4 inches wide. Working with the shorter side of the rectangle parallel to the work surface, cut the strip every 4 1/2 inches to make 4 crackers. Gather the scraps together and set aside. Place the crackers on one or two parchment-lined baking sheets and sprinkle with the topping. Chill until firm, about 30 to 45 minutes. Repeat with the second batch of dough.

Adjust the oven rack to the upper and lower positions and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Gather the scraps together into a ball, chill until firm, and reroll. Dust the surface with more flour and roll out the dough to get about two or three more crackers.

Mark a vertical line down the middle of each cracker, being careful not to cut through the dough. Using a toothpick or skewer, prick the dough to form two dotted rows about 1/2 inch for each side of the dividing line.

Bake for 25 minutes, until browned and slightly firm to the tough, rotating the sheets halfway through to ensure even baking.

Yield: 10 large crackers

Alright then, I've made it here from just finishing your report from last year. No lapse for me even though I am a year behind.

Looking forward to enjoying your reviews as I very impatiently count down the last 19 days until we load the van and start the looooong road trip.

Your review of the Cheesecake Factory had me frantically searching for locations along the I75 since we are ADR'd completely for the 8 days we are there. No luck, though. There is one in Tampa, though...relatively near where we will be staying for the second leg of our trip.

I am also trying to figure out a way to fit EoS in but I really think I cannot do it as I was already squeezing for WPE. I already have a full ADR list for our next-not-yet-agreed-to-nor-scheduled-trip.

Ok...I'm settled in

Hi Sonya. As I posted on your other thread, I've really been looking forward to your reviews of this year's trip. I think you should be sponsored by Disney somehow. You are a Disboards celebrity!

We go to WDW in 1 week (staying at our DVC home, Beach Club Villas) and I will definitely be trying the Magic Cookie Bar.

Gosh, I'm late to the party!

I remember you fondly from the other report, Sonya. You and your hubby eat like truck drivers, yet are impossibly thin compared to your food intake. My theory: You both have the metabolism of a hummingbird.

I hope you share with us the results of the travel agent faux pas that made the start of your trip shaky.

And the magic cookie bar....that's a Sonya report staple.
