Barb, thank you, thank you, thank you again for all the hard work and time you put into this thread. I know I have said this before, but hands down this is my favorite thead on the Dis. First thread I check each time I log in.

We dont have another trip booked until Oct, but of course I would love to send in reviews if the thread is still going at that time

************************

A few comments on the reviews -- I am so sad to hear the bad review of Chefs!! We had such a great meal there in Dec and my lobster bisque was so good.

Boma -- I WILL eat there one day for bkfst!! One day!!! I think I just need to book 1 night in AKL so I can eat at Jiko, Sanaa & Boma

CRT -- the healthy choice looks nice. I am glad they offer something like that.

Then we have an update from hulagirl87.


You may recall that she and her family had breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table this morning. Here is a pic that she sent tonight to add to that update...






hulagirl87 & her DD





Then their lunch today was at...


Colombia Harbour House






She said, "In all the times that I have been to Disney, I have never eaten there. The food was good and the restaurant was quiet, which was nice because the park was getting a little busy."








"I had the Lighthouse sandwich which is hummus, tomato and a broccoli slaw on multigrain bread. It was really good! And it came with chips. I got the apple crisp for dessert. It was warm and tasted delicious!"








"DH had the Garden Harvest salad and the chocolate cake. The salad was really big and he didn't eat all of it. The cake was the standard chocolate cake, but it was really rich. He didn't eat all of that either."




hulagirl's dinner was then at the Polynesian Resort's...


Captain Cook's



First a few menu pics...
















"I didn't feel very well, so I didn't get anything, but DH got the pork sandwich, which I forgot to take a picture of, but he said that it was great. I did get pictures of the menus though! Oh, and even though I didn't feel well, I did get a dole whip."







"Our favorite part of the day was meeting Tiana, so I'm going to attach a picture of that. She was great and DD loved her!"

Speaking of Sanaa, Li Li and Nigel dined there tonight and sent us a great update. But it's time for me to call it night, so I'll get it posted first thing tomorrow.


Also, emmebear sent us a ton of wonderful pics today from onboard the...

Before we sail away with emmebear on the Fantasy today, let's have dinner with Li Li and Nigel at...


Sanaa







Johannesburg Wine Flight







Li Li said, "This was very good."






Indian Style Bread Service
with Coriander Chutney, Garlic Pickle, Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus, and Tamarind Chutney









Slow Cooked in Gravy, Simple and Well Seasoned
Butter Chicken and Lamb Vindaloo with Basmati Rice








Tandoori Lamb served with Apple-Raisin Chutney and Five-Grain Pilaf



Li Li said, "Okay, first I have to say, where has this restaurant been my entire Disney life!!! I cannot believe it took us so long to try it. We both loved everything so much. Honestly, reading the reviews and seeing the pics, does not do it justice!"






Dessert Trio - Chocolate Cake, Tropical Fruit Kulfi, and Chai Cream


"We ended the meal with the dessert trio. We both thought the chocolate cake was a little dry, but I love the kulfi (which is basically sorbet) and we both loved the chai cream."



"Also, I got a dessert cocktail, the..."




Painted Lemur






Li Li said, "Don't be afraid of Amarula. I know of if because my stepsister was stationed in Kenya. It is a really great African cream liqueur!"

Great updates from yesterday and this AM. Loved Li Li & Nigel's update from Sanaa. It's one of my fave restaurants in WDW and I am sooo bummed that it's not on our schedule for the next trip. It's such a wonderful meal!!

Ok, now I will post a few of the many great pics that emmebear has sent to us yesterday and this morning, and then the rest I will post this evening.








emmebear, her DMom, and her DD, Emme, set sail last Saturday on the Disney Fantasy [Eastern Caribbean itinerary].








First a couple pics on the ship...










Mickey Pool


emmebear said, "Kids go buck wild in here. Emme was getting splashed at every angle. So we spent more time in the Donald hot tub."






Mickey slide (for the kids who can't ride the aqua duck)






The Aqua Duck












Some pics from their concierge experience...










The private cabana for concierge guests.


emmebear said, "I spend a lot of time here."





"Breakfast offerings in the concierge lounge..."




























Mimosa







"The epic coffee machine. It's amazing and rumored to have cost $10,000!"















Their breakfast tray




Eaten on their private balcony...












With views like this...





St. Thomas






St. John















And this one from this morning...





"Good morning San Juan!"


3 January Game Points Earned + 9 Bonus Points for pic of emmebear, Emme, DMom & misc. other pics



Much more coming tonight!

Oh wow those cruise pictures are beautiful. I must say, I've never felt a real desire to go on a cruise but those photos (mmm breakfast!!) make it look wonderful and so relaxing.

As usual, this thread is the first place I check when I get a chance, and it doesn't disappoint. The Sanaa update was great - now I'm really excited at the thought of having a South African wine or unique cocktail there (and in just over 3 months, I'll be legally allowed to!).

As for emmebear's cruise updates: Oh. My. God. Everything looks amazing! From the AquaDuck slide (the views from there must be fantastic!) to the concierge lounge selections (there's much more variety than at the WDW resort lounges - the smoked salmon and accompaniments look delicious) to the private cabana to the views from their balcony. Wow! Don't know if I'll be going on a Disney cruise anytime soon, but these pics are certainly making me consider it.

Yes please to the Dessert drink!! Yumm. It's official, Sanaa is on my list for my 2014 trip!

And it looks to me like concierge is the way to go on the cruise ship!! WOOHOO! That seems like a better use of dollars than at the hotels, where I'm mostly at the parks. Hmm....

Best vacation ever! Thanks barb for posting my pics. I'm doing a trip report even I return. This has been a dream vacation & I can't thank my concierge team of kemisha, Alice & Julia enough. They have gone above and beyond to ensure that this trip is as relaxing as possible.

I don't want this trip to end.
