Sorry your TA screwed up your start. But it sounds like it all worked out well.

Great start to you reviews. I'm off to the store now to p/u ingredients to make myself and DD some Magic Bars. I swear I gain weight just reading these reviews.

Hi Sonya,

I'm excited to read your food report. I love drooling at you pics. Just showed Jim the Magic Cookie Bar and can't believe we didn't make it over to try one out (guess that's one for next time).

I love your cruise photos. The two of you look amazing.

Can't wait to revisit the cruise.

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 moreQUOTE]

Ah thank you!
Happy picking with your ADR's! Its so hard choosing - so many good places to pick from!

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!!!

No digestives dont quite cut it!! We are seriously deprived over here! The one supermarket which did Reese's cups doesn't do them any more Thank goodness for the lovely people we cruised with - they filled my fish extender with them!!

Oh I can't believe you were a cast member - I would love that! Did you get discounts on vacations?

I hope you get some ideas! Where are your favourite places to eat currently?

Prepare yourself - WE DON'T HAVE SMORES IN THE UK! I know, I know You can't imagine how confusing it is when they keep getting mentioned in films made in the USA - took us years to find out what they are!!!! I had my first smores last year in 50''s Prime Time and LOVED them ! And now I have the graham cracker recipe - thank you so much!!!!!

Make some bars and post a picture!!!
Krispy Kremes are just the best donuts WORLD WIDE!! Our nearest one is 2 hours away, and we often make the journey!!!!!

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
Oh only 19 days until your trip - SO lucky!! EoS Is great, and we also tried WGP for the first time this year! I could just live at DTD!!!

I hope you get chance to try the Cheesecake Factory at Tampa. Thats the first Cheesecake Factory I ever laid my eyes on, on the way to Busch Gardens. Made the mistake of waiting until we got back to the UK to have a look at the menu online - amaetuer!!!!

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.
I wish they would sponsor me! I would happily accept 2 free weeks stay a year!! . It would be a sacrifice, but one I am willing to make . . .

Hope you have a lovely stay - I would LOVE to stay at Beach Club. I think its gorgeous. There is another foodcourt which does the magic cookie bars as well - its either AK Lodge or Wilderness Lodge - so keep an eye out of you're that way!

Ah thank you! I just thank goodness they didn't somehow cancel our flights as well! Once I was in the country I would have slept in the car!

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.
Hey there!! I weighed myself for the first time this morning . . . it could have been a truck driver standing on the scale!!! With his truck!!!!

I will pass on the results of the letter. They haven't even acknowledged it yet

Sonya -

glad you found a Walmart with the Eagle Brand kit - they do great! (of course anything that has Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed milk is YUMMMY!)

No S'mores - well of course not if you dont have the graham crackers! My goodness! How can you have campfires without getting a burnt marshmellow stuck between a hard bar of chocolate, the graham cracker holds it all together!

so funny that you have Krispy Kreams but no graham crackers - they come in sugar coated and cinnamon, or honey flavors too!! What is Keebler thinking?

Oh mercy are you missing out!

Smores are like a delicious dessert sandwich! You need two graham crackers. In the middle you put a piece of chocolate bar (hershey's is what we always use) and then you put a roasted toasted marshmallow which melts the chocolate and makes it all ooey gooey and delicious. They are great when made over a campfire.

Yaaaaaaaay! You started! And I missed 5 pages already!!

That totally sucks about Virgin! I really hope they own up to their mistake!

I am with you with Magic Cookie Bars! You got me hooked on them last year, Mmm! I was gutted I'd have to wait another 2 years for one, but I'm going to get me one next month! We're planning on staying at Wilderness Lodge next Summer, so I was very excited to find that they do them too - we're going to head over next month to... ahem... take photos of the resort for our families

My EoS soulmate! Even if we have no other reason to head for WDW this year, EoS will bring us there! It will only be one visit, so I'm even fantasizing about ordering multiple sandwiches, trying to guess if they wrap up well so I can take them back to EoS-less I Drive

AND despite not having a car, now I want to take a taxi over to Walmart to get the Magic Cookie kits! I made some using the recipe too, subbing graham crackers for digestives - not the same They just went in the bin!

Looking forward to some more!!

I can't believe I missed PHP's start of her dining report!!!

Bring on the Meat & Potatoes! And the Magic Cookie Bars!

Oh, and btw... I am constanly amazed by your ability to eat the quantities of food you do and still maintain vertical stablilization! I would be asleep (food coma) or sick if I ate like that!

Can't wait for more!
