Ok, it's time to start today's updates, beginning with our First Update of the Day sent to us by Becky (BlovesC).



Intermission Food Court



Becky said, "Good morning Barb! We had to have another food court breakfast, since we're behind on using QS credits thanks to my TS ADRs!"




"Here is 2/3 of the ASMU food court menu..."








"And the last 1/3!...."










All-Star Bounty Platter - scrambled eggs, french toast sticks, breakfast potatoes, biscuit, sausage and bacon
(minus the meats, but with extra french toast sticks)



Becky said, "I had the Bounty Platter minus the bacon and sausage again. This time they gave me extra French Toast sticks to make up for it, awww."






Bounty Platter with meats


"And Charlie had the Original Bounty. Yes we're boring, but the food court is a zoo and this is always the first line we see."




After telling Becky that she had the first update of the day once again she replied, "Yay, first update! I told Charlie that and he said "that's because you don't let me SLEEP!" bwahaha!"



Note from jabead: I am therefore awarding Charlie a Misc. Bonus Point for being such a good trooper!


3 January Game Points Earned + 5 Bonus Points for 3 menu pics, First Update of the Day, and Charlie's sympathy point

Next up is a breakfast update from carobear.


She and her sister had breakfast this morning along the Boardwalk at...



Kouzzina








carobear said, "My sister had the white sangria and I had coffee."







Classic Golden Waffle with Whipped Mascarpone Cheese, Honey, and Chopped Pecans and Bacon







Stacked Kouzzina Breakfast - Two Poached Eggs, Kalamata Olive Toast, Artichoke Spread, and Sweet Potato Hash with Chicken Sausage



"We decided to share the waffles and stacked Kouzzina breakfast. The waffles were super tasty, especially with the mascarpone. We really enjoyed the stacked breakfast. It was well cooked and the flavors went well together. Would definitely come back!"






Boardwalk To Go Kiosk





Corn Fritter Nuggets



carobear said, "After walking around the Boardwalk a bit, we saw corn nuggets. While we weren't really hungry, we had to try them (we love corn nuggets and didn't know they had them at Disney). Super tasty."

"And the red velvet cupcake for dessert! Wowza!"

Received an update this afternoon from disneybride96.


She said, "Stopped for lunch at The Mara at AKL before hitting Downtown Disney and on to our "home" Beach Club Villas."




First a menu pic...












"DH and I both had the half chicken with couscous. Very nice, but I have had more flavorful rotisserie chicken."








"And of course, one last Zebra dome (you get 5!) and a piece of chocolate peanut cake. The cake didn't taste much like peanut at first, but hit you at the end."

This thread is great for getting over the post-Disney World trip blues! I had never thought about having dinner at the Crew's Cup Lounge but it looks really tasty. I'm getting tons of ideas for our trip in December and its still so far away!

SO EXCITED to be doing the live updates again. With my nieces being so young, my sister didn't want to do too many sit down meals. We do have one ADR for 1900PF, though. Can't wait!

Also, not sure if I mentioned it or not - my nieces don't know they are going to Disney! My sister is waking them up tomorrow with bags packed and ready to go to the airport. Then I'll be waiting at the hotel for surprise #2!!

Totally agree! It's so sad to go home...but it's fun to come back to this thread and dream about my next trip, whenever that may be!

The dinner updates are in, so let's get started.



Becky and Charlie had dinner tonight back at their resort's...



INTERMISSION FOOD COURT





Becky said, "Well I'd planned on going back to DTD for dinner tonight but after an afternoon swimming we were too lazy to go there! So here's yet another ASMU meal! This is Charlie's pepper steak. He said it tasted like it had been sitting around all day."





Pepper Steak






"I got the chicken quesadilla, which actually wasn't bad except for the side. CM: "Onions?" Me: "No, no onion."
CM: Proceeds to dump a scoop of onions on top."






Chicken Quesadilla Platter





"And two sundaes for dessert! Better than a prepackaged carrot cake!"





Ice Cream Sundae #1







Ice Cream Sundae #2





Then later another update from Becky with this pic...




Becky & a LeFou's Brew



"Le Fou! Le Brew! Because we needed a little more sugar, right? I promise no matter how crazed I look, this is not alcoholic!"

Next a dinner update from carobear.




She said, "We drover over to CityWalk to check it out and get dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. My sister loves Forrest Gump."











Shrimper’s Heaven - Love Shrimp? This one’s for you!
Hand Breaded Coconut Shrimp, Chilly Shrimp, Fried Shrimp, and Japanese style Tempura Shrimp with Fries.



"My sister got the Shrimper's Heaven. It was tasty."







“I’m Stuffed!” Shrimp
Large Shrimp with Crab Stuffing, baked in Garlic Butter, and topped with Monterey Jack Cheese. Served with Jasmine Rice




"I chose the "I'm Stuffed!" Shrimp. Unfortunately this disappointing. It had plenty of crab. It just wasn't seasoned at all. So bland. Had to sprinkle salt and lemon all over it to make it decent. Also could have used some more sauce."






Then carobear also sent a couple of snack updates.



She said, "We grabbed this churro while at CityWalk. It was a typical churro. Good."









"We got these at Singing Spirits (Pool Bar) at All-Star Music. I think they were called Lava Smoothies. Love these!"




Lava Smoothies - Frozen non-alcoholic drink with raspberry puree blended with pina colada mix.

And last a dinner update from Chris (dvc4life).


But before dinner, she had cocktails at...












Zooberry - Bluezoo's signature cocktail with blueberry infused vodka, fresh lemon juice, and rock candy syrup


Chris said, "Oh so good. I loved it."







Vodka Martini






Then they went next door to the Swan for dinner at...







Chris said, "It started out good. Duh duh duuuuuuuh."






Complimentary Antipasti Platter with Eggplant Caponata and Slices of Cured Sausage


"Very tasty."







Bread Basket


"This was yummy. The focaccia was the best."








"The bottle of wine we shared."







"I ordered the grouper. It was so good."







Medaglione di Filetto
10 oz. beef tenderloin served with roasted potatoes in a mixed mushroom sauce




"Ok. Here is where it went bad. DH had the mushroom filet. Ordered medium rare. When it came out it was medium well. DH was not happy. The waitress was right there and did everything possible to make sure it was ok. He sent it back and by the time he got his meal, I was done. The second steak was cooked perfect. We usually don't complain but they comped his meal. Wow. Great service. Would definitely go back."

This thread definitely feels like a DIS home! (partly because there's always good food around here )

Speaking of which, it's exciting to see reviews from the Swolphin restaurants! I'd love to try bluezoo again (for appetizers and maybe even cocktails ).
