I have many updates leftover from yesterday, so let's get started with milmore104's lunch at the Coronado Spring Resort's...



















"My DD had the turkey sandwich grilled. She loved it. I had a bit and it was good, not dry at all. Good flavor."








"My mom and I shared the chicken quesadilla. Very good! I smothered it in guacamole and salsa. So good!"







"My middle DD had pizza. No picture because she ate it before I got back to the table with our food."








"While my little DD had a liquid lunch...chocolate milk."







"And of course my DD finished with churros. If you are keeping count, that's 4 so far."








And also this simple, yet tasty snack update...

Next we have our first update from a new reporter who arrived yesterday at Disney World, hotcarib.

First some menu pics...











Here's what they had...




Bushmills Irish Whiskey & Soda






Irish Soda Bread







Calamari City - Salt n pepper calamari & mixed tempura vegetables served with a spicy remoulade






Lambo - Lamb shank braised in rosemary jus with mash, leeks, shiitake mushrooms & baby carrots.

Pork Supreme - Grilled lollipop Pork chop with mashed potatoes & a port cider jus with an apple chutney.


"Delicious pork chop, potato mash and apple chutney!"





And for their desserts...





Gers Bread & Butter Pudding

Apple Crumble with vanilla ice cream

Then we have a dinner update from Angebee.


She and her family celebrated her dad's birthday last night at DHS'...



50's Prime Time Cafe





First a menu pic...








Here's what they had...





"Drinks: Coke, iced tea, chocolate milk shake, root beer float. Tea tasted fresh brewed. We all had some of the shake. Yum!"







Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and corn


"Dad had Aunt Liz's Fried Chicken. Taters w/ gravy. Subbed collar greens for corn. Kit (DSis) and I had the same but no gravy. Kit actually picked the plate clean, including the breading! We all liked it."











Mom's Old Fashioned Pot Roast - Slow cooked 'til fork tender, served with mashed potatoes, carrots, celery and onions


"Mom had the pot roast with regular sides. She raved how it was fall off the fork tender. I had a bite and nearly finished it for her myself. No dessert because we hope to go to World Showcase if it doesn't downpour again."



"We had underwhelming antics but great food!"

One last update was received last night, this one from Kathymford.


Kathy and her DBF had dinner last night at the Polynesian Resort's...




'OHANA




Kathy said, "We finally got to try 'Ohana for the first time!!"






'Ohana Welcome Bread



"Loved the bread."















"Those dumplings were my favorite anywhere. And I could have eaten a bucket of the noodles yum!! The salad was forgettable for us. The dressing was alright, but once we heard how much food was coming, we pushed it aside!!"









"The meats were all yummy! I really liked the steak, but both of us really loved the pork. DBF especially loved the shrimp too. The chicken came right off the grill to our table and was good. But for our money, the pork is the winner."





"And the star of the show...."






"This was so good, and kinda of light, but delicious? How delicious?..."

Just popping in to post our First Update of the Day, again received from Emily & Brenda.


Breakfast this morning was at Epcot's...



Sunshine Seasons






Apple Danish







Blueberry Croissant Bread Pudding


"This is fabulous! The blueberries are very ripe and juicy, and the bread is nice and flaky. Not too mushy, not too dry, and not too cold."

That would be great, I'll amend your trip dates on my list. I think it's nice to have some variety here on the live thread, so I'm happy to include Universal, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Disney cruises, etc. updates.

Hi Barb!

I wanted to touch base to see if you would be interested in food pictures from Winter Haven, Florida and Legoland. Our Disney May trip will start on May 28th, possibly the evening of the 27th, but we will be traveling to Legoland first. We will leave home on May 25th and spend two days there before we start the Disney portion of our trip.

Just let me know if you think Legoland pictures would be interesting to everyone.

Sorry folks, but it's again...


RECRUITMENT TIME!!!


As you may have noticed, the live thread is again very active. With today's arrivals, we will have 7 active reporters at Disney World and by this weekend we should have 9. So the next couple of weeks look to be a time of feast, but unfortunately the middle two weeks of March will be a time of famine for the live thread unless we have some more volunteers. Beginning on March 11th and through the 21st, we have only one volunteer for most of those 10 days. In fact, due to a previous volunteer having to postpone their trip, we have absolutely no one to do live reports on the 18th and 19th. So anyone that is planning a mid-March trip, please consider doing some live updates. Also, any of you who are active on other forums of the DIS, please feel free to promote this thread and encourage people to check it out. Perhaps with some new followers, we will find some new volunteers.

Thanks everyone for your help and be sure to check back tonight for many more great updates from our current live from Disney World reporting team.
