Wow, that pot pie is spectacularly unappetizing looking. Skin on the chicken? Don't get. Some kind of weird, dark gravy? Also don't get. At least you had some good food memories to get you through the trip...although I might have hit them up for some more First Class liquor, too.

I'm sad this report is done, too. I really enjoyed them all and looked forward to the new postings. I guess it's official and unanimous, you must go on another trip soon. Think of it as your Dis civic duty!

Thanks again for the fun!

It can either be a sad way to end your food review knowing that you ended a fabulous trip with THAT meal. Or you could look at it from the point of view that you just have to go back to Disney soon (and I know that you are) so you can have some more REALLY delicious food. If I could, I would choose door number 2!!! (Sadly, we won't be going back anytime soon! )

Hi Brenda!
I've been trying to stay away to get past my 'No WDW for us' depression. But I've read your whole report which was just as wonderful as always! Hope you guys had a wonderful holiday and I look forward to your next report!

Hi Christen! I can put you in my luggage but you'll have to bring your adorable girls too!

Ha! Perhaps another Bloody Mary may have made the pot pie more appetizing. At least we were able to compare the first class food served between the two airlines. Clearly, American Airlines won!

I like the way you put that.. my Dis civic duty calls me to take another trip!

Hi Karla! At least the Dis food was more appetizing than the airline food! I'm glad we were able to run into each other and share a dining experience together as well.

Yeah... not so first class like huh? I'm excited that our dates will line up in Feb. Will you be bringing the sausage on your next trip?

Hi Denise! Awwww thanks for the nice greeting! I completely understand having some time out from the Disboards when there's no trips waiting in the wings.

Ok, this is it... the final wrap up and the reveal for the next trip.

To summarize some of the highlights from this trip...We had 33 meals, 1 dessert party, and several snacks that got checked off my list. And of course, accomplishing (or in some instances not accomplishing) Jabead's List of 18 things to do/eat during our trip!

Favorites:

Michael's favorite appetizer was the Roasted Prince Edward Island Mussels from Le Cellier:



His favorite entree was the Seared Diver Scallops; Southern Sweet Corn Risotto, Spiced Tomato Broth, Micro Popcorn Shoots from California Grill.



And his favorite dessert was Artist Point Cobbler; Seasonal Berries and House-made Black Raspberry Ice-Cream


As for Emily.... her favorite appetizer was the Seared Ahi Tuna – chilled, sesame encrusted ahi tuna wasabi aioli & sweet chili slaw from Yak & Yeti



Her favorite entree or rather dinner was Ohana



Serious eating at 'Ohana



And her favorite dessert was The Yachtsman Sundae; Trio of gelato with Amarena cherries at Yachtsman Steakhouse



As for my favorites.... I'm going to add an extra bonus favorite in here to start...

My favorite bread serving: Pretzel bread at Le Cellier!! Definitely highlight worthy!



My favorite appetizer was initially a toss up between the soups...both the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup at Le Cellier and the Smokey Portobello Mushroom Soup with Roasted Shiitakes, Chive Oil and Sourdough Croutons at Artist Point but the Seasonal Salad at Grand Floridian Cafe won!




My favorite entree was the 8-oz Center Cut Filet Mignon; mashed potatoes, cabernet wine sauce at Yachtsman Steakhouse



And it will be no surprise that my favorite dessert was the cream cheese wontons at Yak & Yeti!!!



Other honorable mentions... My favorite breakfast remains Kona Cafe for their pineapple macadamia nut pancakes.



And the ever awesome mushroom filet from Le Cellier!



And a new favorite dessert - from Tony's town Square Restaurant - the pistachio creme brulee!



And finally....a snack that is definitely worthy of all the rave reviews - the fruit and nutella waffle sandwich from Sleepy Hollow at MK. Don't worry, I will still find a way to eat a carrot cake cookie each trip as well!



Which brings us to what's next for Emmysmommy?? Since there are some great room discounts out for late winter and we really need to maximize our annual passes and TiW Em and I will take our 4th girls only trip in late February/early March 2013.

Some first for us will include the following:
1. AKL for 1 nite so that we can enjoy all that this unique resort has to offer and gosh darn it, I'm tired of cancelling Boma. This will ensure a Boma breakfast for us!
2. Jiko dinner since we'll be staying there! It will be so convenient! Also, to satisfy my curiosity as to why Mr. DonaldDoleWhip raves about this place we'll have to weigh in oursevles on this one.
3. Yacht Club - club level for 3 nites. We have stayed at Beach Club and Boardwalk so after this we will have tried all 3 of Disney's Epcot hotels.
4. Be Our Guest dinner... I'm a little nervous after seeing some less than stellar reviews but if nothing else, I really want to experience the theming.
5. Raglan Road dinner.. this was a request by Em and I'm happy to oblige.
6. Narcoosees dinner... it will be lovely to try this restaurant and enjoy the fireworks from here.
7. San Angel Inn is another new restaurant for which we are currently booked for lunch. This is another scary one that may change... we want to try all the Epcot TS restaurants but it may not be worth checking this off the list if the food is ick! We'll see! There are plenty of options if we ditch this.

Em is doing the primary planning for this trip so all of the dining line up is her handiwork. She's mapped out our park days and such. I just love watching a Diser blossom before my eyes!! Em may be doing a pre-dining review and DR for this one. (I'm deferring to her since she is our planner for this trip and you can see how long it has taken me to get this one finished so...one way or another we will report back on our dining experiences.)

Hopefully, we'll get to see Tracy (Tracer00) since she will be there during the Princess 1/2 marathon.

Thanks to everyone for reading along and for all of your warm and friendly comments!

Note: I do plan to finish my TR which is up to day 9 of 13 so there is hope that I will finish that one sometime in 2013!!

Wonderful highlights and final wrap-up! It's awesome that you have another trip coming up in a few months, and the plans look great - you're trying so many new resorts and restaurants! I really hope you enjoy Jiko, since it's one of my favorite signatures (up there with Artist Point).

As for Be Our Guest dinner and Narcoossee's...good luck! Both places have been receiving somewhat inconsistent reviews recently. That said, our last meal at Narcoossee's was very good, and BOG gets a pass for being brand new. Maybe they'll work things out over the next few weeks (and if they don't, you can let us know ).

Thanks for another fantastic set of dining reviews, and have a very happy New Year!

Fantastic way to wrap up! I already can't wait for the next report Not long to go at all, thats usually when we're at WDW but this year we choose May as its DS's first birthday at the end of Feb and we wanted him to be a little bigger on our trip.
Happy trip planning to you and Em and of course all the best for 2013

Sad to see this come to an end! You are one of my favorite dining reviewers!

I might be living under a rock, but I didn't know you had another TR going on. I'm heading over to check it out.

Also...yay for end of Feb and early March trip. I'll be there too (27th-3rd) visiting my sister who is doing the Disney College Program!
