Thank you so much for volunteering, disneychristmasx3! I will add you to my list for December and send you a PM with my phone number, probably sometime in November. Is there any other information you would like to share about your trip, other than the dates? Like where you are staying, who is going with you, etc. If not, no worries...just thought I would ask in case you wanted to include it.

Just a reminder that starting tomorrow we will have two more Live Reporters at Disney World...

Arriving late tonight is sarabear, who will be staying at AOA in the newly opened Little Mermaid section and has agreed to send some room pics our way! She will be at Disney World from 9/25 - 10/2.


And then arriving tomorrow is vettegirl. Lori and her friend, Sue, will be there from 9/26 - 10/1 and staying at CSR. Here is Lori's PTR and her PDR

WOW- I am LOVIN the pics- the ones at AKL especially because I'll be there in about a month for 5 nights. I'll try to send some food porn your way if you're still doing this. We're at AKV in a GV from 11/2 to 11/7, then BWV 11/7-11/11.

And really? I inspired you all the way to Alaska??? DAMN! I need to read my TR myself! I want to be inspired too!

It would be great to have you on the Live Reporting team, podsnel! I'll add you to my trip list and send you a PM with my number. Thanks!

Curious to see what everyone else thinks ....

Just let us know where to go...we will follow! Gotta have our daily food pics

BTW, CARROT CAKE COOKIE!! On my "must try" list of snacks

I definitely think you have a big enough following to spin off into your own thread!

And I'd be happy to do some live-updates during our November trip .

Barb - I guess you have your answer but I agree about the separate thread!

The votes are in and unanimously in favor of starting a new thread! I too agree that this might be as good of time as any to get it started, with the F & W fest starting on Friday and 5 live reporters being at Disney World by then. I will try to work on the introduction asap. I'm hoping to maybe get the thread started today/tonight, since we have two more DISers starting their updates tomorrow. If not, then for sure before Friday. Oh, and I also plan to incorporate some of the "great work" done by our previous live reporters into the new thread. I want their groundbreaking "live update" efforts to be acknowledged and not left behind to die a slow death with my "completed" dining report. Oh, and I also plan to move my List of DISers with Upcoming Trips to Post 2 of the new thread (following the introduction) and maintain it from there.

So if this all sounds good to everyone, then I'll get this new thread launched very soon and we will see just how long we can keep it flying!

Thanks everyone for all your feedback!

Ginamarie & family are at Epcot today, where they had lunch at...



Chefs de France




First the Kids' Meals...






Blanc de Poulet aux Nouilles
Kid's Breaded Chicken Strips served with pasta



"Daughter added a tiny bit of sauce before photo was taken. The sauce was served on the side."






Filet de limande saute avec haricots vert et tomates
Kid's Pan roasted Flounder served with green beans and tomatoes



"Couldn't believe this was a kid's meal. Son LOVED it and ate every bite, which is unusual for him.
Never thought my three year old would love fish the most of the whole vacation."







Demi poulet fermier roti Pommes rissolees et broccoli
Half of an all natural roasted chicken, rissole potatoes and broccoli



Ginamarie said, "My chicken was amazing!"







Gratin de macaroni
Baked macaroni with cream and gruyere cheese



"This was very rich, but sister enjoyed it!"






Plat de cote de boeuf au cabernet avee pates
Beef short ribs braised in Cabernet wine with pasta, pearl onions and mushrooms



"Hubby had the short ribs...loved it!"






A Visit from Chef Remy




And now for dessert...




Biscuit au chocolat
Kid's Dessert - Chocolate chip cookie



"This was huge!"






Fraisier, sorbet et coulis aux fruits rouges
Strawberry cake with red berry sauce and strawberry sorbet



"Hubby said this was the best sorbet he ever ate!"






Profiterolles au Chocolat
Puff pastries with vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate sauce
.


This was wonderful! I wanted to lick the chocolate sauce off of the plate!"



Ginamarie's final thoughts, "I LOVED THIS MEAL!!!"
