Now for our First Update of the Day, sent to us by IncredibleboysMom.


Her update was a first for the Live Thread from the...










"Here are the two boat captains (both named Patch ) welcoming us to the party.
Our captain Patch is on the left..."









"In the party room, there were tables of snacks including cake,..."








"...popcorn, pretzels, cotton candy..."








...fruit and ice cream."







"There was also a drink table with lemonade, iced tea, apple juice, hot cocoa, and coffee.
We were encouraged to take snacks with us when we boarded our boats."






"Captain Hook and Mr. Smee came out for photos and autographs. Here is my youngest DS with them."








"Once we boarded the boats, our captain entertained us with pirate songs and trivia. We got an up close view of the the Electric Water Parade."








"But this view was the best!"







"We all enjoyed the cruise, but this guy the most.
Here he is with his pirate sword given for answering a trivia question correctly."








"Also there was a special surprise character waiting for us at the dock when the boat returned.
I won't ruin it and post a pic, but he was a big hit!"





"This was so much fun for all ages. The captains were entertaining and not just in a little kid kind of way.
My teenager laughed his head off! We met at the Contemporary Resort and left from their marina."

I just went over to the Trip Reports board, and I can't see any pictures over there either. I have no clue what is going on. I'm at work though. When I get home tonight I'll see if I have any luck on my laptop.

Sometimes at work I can't see the pictures either. It depends on how they are posted. Luckily I don't have that problem on this thread!

Let's start out the evening with a breakfast update from DaisyluvzGoofy.


She said, "We started Monday at Crystal Palace with a before the park opened ADR."













"Both Nicholas and I knew Crystal Palace was basic. Our favorite things were the "make your own omelet bar" where we discovered late that it also served as a make your own pancake bar. As always our buffet favorite was the Puffed French Toast. The fruit was fresh and sweet, especially the pineapple. I liked the potato casserole over the breakfast pancakes but DH preferred the opposite."































"Our waitress brought us the cupcake and signed photo. Super cute!"










"We stayed a bit too long in the restaurant, and missed out on the perk of being in MK before anyone else. But yesterday ended up being a weird day anyways. You'll see that in our ADR's but we still had fun!!!"

Next an update from Diane (pinkxray).



She said, "Last night we had dinner at...











"DSis and I both had nachos. Hers with all the toppings while mine only had cheese., beef, and sour cream. I dislike beans and they are already mixed in the meat but I could easily avoid them."








"DD had the chicken tenders with chips. It also came with grapes but I didn't take a pic."

Next was Diane's (pinkxray) breakfast update from this morning at...






Diane said, "I was able to grab an 8:00 a.m. ADR yesterday afternoon. I was trying to avoid character meals but DD looked bummed out when I reminded her yesterday."































"Everything was good. Food and service were all fine. We went here back in 2011 and I loved it. I didn't have the same feeling this time. I think I am just done with character meals for a few years. I think it was $20.99 or close to it last trip and today it was $30.99 which wasn't worth it to me."

Next another update from Diane (pinkxray), and this one is a Live Thread first.






"She said, "This afternoon we headed to the Grand Floridian to eat at..."







"I knew DH would never set foot in here so it was perfect for our girls trip."























































"DD had the Mrs. Potts Tea which included tuna, ham and cheese, and pbj sandwiches. She chose hot cocoa as her beverage."













"She got to select two pastries. She selected the chocolate eclair that had chocolate inside which I wasn't expecting. The swan had lemon creme this day. She didn't like either but I didn't expect her too. She thinks they need to offer a kids choice like a cookie."








"DSis and I both ordered off the a la carte menu. I chose the scone and Devonshire cream and jam tart."








"DSis chose the trifle (she also got Caitlin's ham and cheese since she doesn't eat ham with cheese together.)"











"I also got a few pastries. There were three choices after the two that DD had so I decided to get those in order to try them all."







"Chocolate strawberry, carrot cake, and some type of cake."







"I enjoyed the food. My favorite was the scone with cream, Yum!"
