Yummy!! The BLT (even though I don't eat bacon) flatbread looks delicious! I'm getting more and more disappointed that CG will be closed for our trip!
However, LeCellier is looking more and more delicious and I cannot wait for that exact meal! Tomato app, Filet and adorable chocolate mousse
The prawns also look wonderful and we love spice!!
Thank you live reporters!! Hope you had great trips

Good morning everyone!

Things have been quiet on the "live update" front for awhile, so decided to use the lull to take care of some housekeeping items. I've done some work on the first page of this thread. First of all, I've added an index to Post 1, which should make it a little easier if you want to find updates from a particular restaurant, etc.

Next I still have some questionable dates on my list in Post 2. For the months of October & November they are:

gardengirl628 - Dana is planning a "Spooky" vacation (to begin around Oct. 6???), which includes some time at WDW plus a 3 day cruise on the Disney Dream.

nessz79 - is taking a 2nd trip to WDW and this time bringing the whole family, including the in-laws! Arriving sometime around Oct. 18???

CupcakeLisa - Lisa will be Honeymooning with her new hubby at OKW beginning around Oct. 19??? And I bet she will be having some of those delicious Disney World cupcakes!

ksack - will be arriving at WDW sometime around Oct.24??? Coming from the Frozen Tundra to thaw out in the warm Florida sun.

Krissalee - Krissy and Craig will be celebrating their 14th Anniversary at the World sometime in early November??? And will be staying at the BWV.

AeroKU - my neighbor from just up the road (Bloomington, IL) will be visiting the World sometime around Nov. 11???


So if you happen to be any of these people and would like to share the dates (and any other info) of your trip, that would be great! Also, if you have a trip coming up in the next 5 months and your name is not on the list in Post 2, please let me know so that I can add you.

Also, I have finally completed Post 3, 4, & 6 that I had originally reserved. If you would like to see a little history of how this whole "live update" thing got started, then take a look!

And finally, I'd like to do a little more recruiting of "Live Reporters" for this month and next.

For the month of October, we are a bit light on reporters (with only one or maybe two) for these days:

Oct. 16 - 20
Oct. 29 -31

And for November, I am badly in need of volunteers for Nov. 14 - 30. Most of these days we have no one doing live updates.

So if your trip includes any of these dates, please consider joining our "Live Reporting" team. And of course, even if your trip falls during a time when we already have adequate coverage, we could always use more. So anyone that wants in on the fun, just let me know!

I WISH I could help you with those vacant November dates, but alas...my October updates must suffice. 5 days!

So head-on prawns are the new signature trend? Cali Grill is so behind the times

In all seriousness, Cali Grill's current menu is sounding good. I wish I had a trip planned soon - it would be on my list!

You were the first person I thought of when my husband ordered those prawns.

budafam & her DD arrived at Disney World yesterday and went to Downtown Disney last night to have dinner at...


Fulton's Crab House


For their appetizers, budafam had...







Lobster Corn Dogs with salsa verde, sweet chili aioli




And for her DD...






Kid's Fruit - sliced pineapple, strawberries and red grapes




For her entree, budafam had...






Narragansett, Rhode Island Lobster - One pound and a quarter lobster, shrimp, scallop, spinach and mushroom stuffing, toasted breadcrumbs





And DD had...






Kid's Snow Crab Legs - 10 ounces with steamed red skin potatoes


budafam said, "Both my app and entree were phenomenal! The stuffed lobster had the claws & tail intact and the body was used for the stuffing... a LOT of seafood. I couldn't even order a dessert."



For dessert, DD ordered the...





Build Your Own Sundae - ice cream topped with chocolate syrup, and tasty toppings






budafam said, "She also got a surprise birthday piece of chocolate cake so I helped eat that."

And then for lunch, budafam & DD went to...


Hollywood Brown Derby


For appetizer, budafam had...




Blue Lump Crab Spring Rolls - snow crab claw and a Asian slaw with spicy miso aioli


budafam said, "They were amazing. I love spring rolls and these had just the right amount of spice to them."



And DD had...





Kid's Celery & Carrot Sticks


budafam said, "She barely touched these because she dislikes both, but dislikes soup and salad (the other two choices) more."



For her entree, budafam got...





Charred Filet of Beef over Brentwood corn and Pancetta Risotto, arugula pesto and pickled rainbow chard


budafam said, "I think this was the best thing I have ever eaten. Seriously loved it and ate "almost" all of it."



And DD had...





Tempura Fish Strips with steamed broccoli and dipping sauce



budafam said, "She only ate a little of this. The fish looked good...light breading, and she loved the broccoli. It also came with green apple slices."



For dessert, budafam had...





Banana White Chocolate Toffee Tower - on Cocoa-Almond Cookie and Bananas Foster


budafam said, "The top part was really yummy but I didn't care for the bottom. I'm not a cocoa fan so that's probably why."




Then they brought out another two desserts for DD...





Hidden Treasures - Vanilla ice cream, Oreo cookie crumbles and gummy snakes with a Tollhouse cookie


budafam said, "This was a nice surprise when she discovered the worms. Then they brought out a chocolate dessert with two candles lit. She loved the sprinkles on there."

The Fulton's stuffed lobster and lobster corn dogs both look really good. I haven't been to Fulton's in a few years (and all the recent negative reviews haven't helped), but this review has me thinking about returning.

Hi there
I will be there Nov 24-Dec 1 but I will say this is my first trip and I'm still trying to figure everything out. Not sure if I'm too much of a newbie

Hi Gina!

You are taking your first trip to Disney World...that's fantastic!!! You have done a very smart thing by joining the DIS to help you with the trip planning process.

As far as doing live updates, I'm thinking that you should probably just concentrate on having a great time while you are there. If you think you'd like to do a few updates, then maybe you could email me some pics at the end of the day (if you aren't too tired...which you very well might be ) or perhaps as soon as you return home, as a mini-Dining Report.

That red velvet cupcake is my new best friend!!

I certainly wish that I could offer my assistance for being a live reporter in late November Barb but that's not an option so I will keep hanging around here!

Barb - thanks for putting me on the list. We will be staying at SSR, one of our home resorts, from the 23-28 of October in a grand villa. So excited for that! Never stayed in one before. There will be I think 10 of us. Me, my DH, and both DD's. A friend from home will be joining us and our other friends (5 of them I believe) who live in Florida.

Also, I have never done a TR either. But I am willing to send you updates while we are there. Or at least try to!

We will be live reporting at the same time! Where are you eating and when? How funny would it be if we were at the same restaurant one night?
