Food & Wine Details!!

We had a bad storm pass through here this afternoon. Not severe, but lots of rain and loud thunder. It was the first big thunderstorm we've gotten since bringing Bandit home...he was not a happy camper. We've cleared up and now he's running around like a crazy puppy again, so all is good

The F&W Kiosk offerings have been posted to the WDW site! http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/par...l/marketplace/ I'll be going through everything in the next couple of days and see what's new

I'm really happy they put up the menu choices for the kiosks! But I know I won't really decide what I want until people start returning and post some pictures!

I just checked out the F&W offerings and now I won't feel so terribly awful that I can't go each year. There are a lot things that they had last year so I won't feel too bad that I can't go back there until 2011.

Some of the things that weren't so successful appear not to be on some of the menus, but some of the new offerings look real interesting! I'll be reading everyone's TRs with baited breath!

Oh, poor Bandit! We got some rain today here in NYC too, but not much. It looked like it was going to rain all evening, but hasn't...yet. I'm hoping for a storm, we need it after those 100 degree days.

I look forward to your updates on F&W!!

They've said that there's 60% new offerings. All I can see is that they've introduced Belgium and S Korea. The rest all look very similar to last year. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed

Ugh, the highest we hit was 95. My Mom was saying that when it was 92 here, it was 75 in FL! It was over 100 that same say in the Philly area. Gross. I do like living Upstate though, we only ever have a handful of days above 90!

F&W Booths

Anything that I've had before and will get again will be in pink anything that's a maybe in this category will get light pink.

YES! The cheddar cheese soup is back. I don't care if it's 95 degrees out, I'm getting some of that soup. I looooove it.

Poland cart is back too! I love me some pierogies!

I'll have to get some sushi in Japan. I've recently become hooked on sushi! There are a ton of things I'd like to try. Really looking forward to it!!!

The only reason I don't have the soup on my list is because we have an ADR at LeCellier...I'll have it in air conditioning
