Nice pictures of the Boardwalk. I would love to be able to stay there one day.

Ok...so let me make sure I have this right....you were IN Mexico, and you got a frozen made out of chemical psuedo margarita INSTEAD OF taking five more minutes and getting a REAL Rita in the Ditch in a to go cup?????



You should hang your heads in SHAME, Delaware girls!!!!

I'm glad you liked Kouzzina- I have yet to try it because I read sooooooo many awful reviews. Maybe I'll go in November.

And thanks for all the GORGEOUS pics of my new home- we closed on our BWV contract on Saturday. Just waiting for the points to be deposited.

You always manage to find the most interesting drinks in Epcot! I would never think of looking in Morocco for drinks! And the tea stand in China is somewhere I definitely need to stop on my next trip!

Kouzinna looks good, I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try it though!

Love your pics of the Boardwalk, it's so pretty over there!

Glad you enjoyed Kouzzina. We ate there in Sept (same situation only place we could get a last minute adr) and none of us cared for it.
We did have a really fun evening!

Let's just say that the wine flight really helped make it a fun dinner. I love the wine flights. It just enough flavor to cleanse the pallet and then you are on to a new taste.

Kouzzina was not my fav restaurant of the trip, but I would go back again to try something less spicy.

I thought I told you that. I seriously did not realize that you could get the Ditch Ritas to go and I didn't know the ones at the stand were so substandard. I definitely won't make that mistake again. I have a lot of catching up to do at the Ditch.

So - consider my head hung in total shame and humiliation!

Really? That many awful reviews???? It wasn't my fav meal of the trip, but it certainly was acceptable. And that Greek wine flight........I highly recommend that!

Well, despite my attempt to find interesting drinks, I still managed to miss the Ditch which is totally unacceptable.

But that tea stand in China - they have some good stuff there - alcoholic and non alcoholic. I will definitely be back there again.

Really? I didn't think we were being brave. Jen's meal looked pretty normal. Like I said, mine was spicy hot. I will know next time to ask what's spicy hot and probably avoid that.

I KNOW!!!!! Don't worry Ellen....I will set her straight in May

My niece and I went snowboarding yesterday and in the car on the way to the mountain her cell phone went off.....her text message alert noise is a Kimmunicator beep

Wow..I am impressed that you remember what you ate....well I guess that is why you were taking pictures Your meal looked delicious but you lost me with the fennel and ouzo...

Can't wait to see that BW view every night in May...

So did you decide on staying an extra day or two?

My first stop after arriving is heading to the Ditch where I hope to meet Jen and Melissa and work on my Epcot score card!

If I could get a $79 return flight and a cheap room at Pop I think I would stay. It's a lot of room changes, but it would be worth it for another night.

UGH though, I have a hard time with floatie things in my drinks. Like I love a mojito but get grossed out by the mint if it goes in my mouth. Pulp in oj...you get the idea.

I'm going to have to blame that last one on Jen. I think she bought it for me before I had time to process. And then, I HAD to drink it.

I felt the mix the next day. Very slow start to the day!
Uh huh. ALL Jen's fault I'm sure.

Love the pictures of the Boardwalk, I just love that area. Kouzzinas was not a fave of mine. DH liked the stew, but my flank steak was so salty that I just could not eat it. DH loves salt, but he didn't like it either.

We miss Spoodles.

Yuck....I don't like pulp in OJ. mint in Mojitos I can tolerate because, after all, it IS a mojito. The ginger was just weird. I won't get it again. Too many floaty-free drinks out there.

It really was a great day / evening. It was laid back, yet so fun. I really recommend that wine flight. So great!

I think I almost left the camera in the restaurant, so after that I slung it across my chest so I wouldn't leave it behind.

I love the Boardwalk, too. Such a great area!

Oh you girls had such a wonderful evening! Even if your posts were light on the pictures, I still loved hearing the story. I love Iron Chef and always watch it when Cat Cora's doing the cooking but I am afraid to try the restaurant since we are pretty picky eaters.

We really did have a great evening! It was so fun! I would definitely do it over again in a heart beat!

Since I LOVE seafood, I usually pick that when I'm not sure if I will like the food. I just have to remember to ask about the "heat factor".

Speaking of that view on the Boardwalk..... Isn't it? The only way I have ever left w/o tears in my eyes has been due to another trip coming up very soon. I just love it there....
