Fun Fact: When booking our reservations for this trip, the CM told us (I think she almost didn't believe it herself) - that we've been to Disney over 200 times. We're former Floridians - so I guess that makes the number sound a bit more normal?? Either way - we love Disney!

We're especially excited this time around because we'll get to see my little sis for the first time in months! She is currently working in the DCP as a fairy godmother at BBB. There will be five of us - plus some aunts and uncles. Plenty of food to go around! AND, we have a ressie for Be Our Guest on Nov. 20! :D

I discovered Disboards a few months ago, and browsing all the awesome dining reviews is my favorite thing! I'd love, love, love to do a live report during our trip!! Just let me know if you're still looking for volunteers!

That would be wonderful, as I had no one yet during your trip dates! I will send you a PM with my info and add your trip dates to my list in Post 2 of this thread. Thank you so much for offering to do live updates!

Oh, and more than 200 visits to Disney World...that's awesome!!!

We were shocked by the number too! The best I can figure it - we've been going since I was a baby, and we used to live 3 hours away. We usually did short weekends - very few trips over 4 days.

Definitely excited to be doing a live trip report! I'm loving the daily updates here!

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!
We will be there 11/16-11/23. I always have the best intentions but fall into a post Disney funk, and never get the food report finished! If I could text you the pics, I think I could do it!

I received these updates from SEASONK tonight...


She said, "We checked in late yesterday afternoon, and headed to Epcot. Our plans were to ride a few rides and then eat and drink around the world BUT the rain came so DH grabbed a beer and we headed to the exit. P.S. My family is not used to be taking pictures of food and drink, DH had already taken a sip or 2 before I could take a pic.
Anyway this is a Altenmünster Oktoberfest in the 22oz stein."







From the Brewer's Collection Booth (F & W Fest) - Altenmünster, Octoberfest 22 oz. (minus a few sips)




SEASONK said, "This was breakfast this morning from the Caribbean Beach Resort (which is where we are staying). This is the Bounty platter with eggs, potatoes, French toast, biscuit, and choice of bacon or sausage. We chose bacon. The potatoes were very good. Everything was just ok. It served its purpose to fill us up, but that was about all."

"The other is the adult Mickey waffle plate. This came with the choice of bacon or sausage. We chose sausage. Of course the waffle was delish, but I love Mickey waffles so I am a 'lil biased . I didn't try the sausage but DH said it was "alright"."






Mickey Waffle and the Bounty Platter from Old Port Royale Food Court (CBR)



SEASONK said, "First sorry about the picture quality, we were sitting by a window, great for people watching not so great for cell phone pics. This is the fried shrimp platter from Columbia Harbor House. DH and I split it and it was plenty for both of us. We both thought it was good, being from Louisiana we are picky about our shrimp. We both agreed it was nice to have something other than a burger or chicken strips for a in the park counter service.
I hope to have some more pics tomorrow, that's when our dining plan begins."

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.
I'll do some live updates when I am there starting Nov. 28.

First off, I have to say...I LOVE THIS THREAD!! I go on every morning to see the amazing DFP (disney food porn ) that people post from the day before. What a fantastic idea!! I wasn't sure if you're recruiting for December yet, but we will be heading to the world December 10 - 16 and I would love to send some pics your way! We take pictures with our phone of the food and post it on FB anyway, so why not post it for people who will actually appreciate it!

Anyway, thanks again for this wonderful thread!

Hi Amber! Yep, I have your trip on the list, but if you are by chance interested in doing a few live updates (either by text or email) while you are there please let me know. We especially need someone for the first couple of days of your trip.

That would be great, Jess! And I'm pretty sure people would not be opposed if you sent a few Universal food pics our way, too. I will send you a PM with my info. Thanks so much for volunteering!

Thanks, DisWishes720! I'm so glad you are enjoying the thread and I would love to have you join our live reporting team in December! I'll add your trip to the list in Post #2 right away and will send you a PM sometime in November, when it's closer to your trip time.

I love waking up in the morning and seeing Mickey waffles here.... unfortunately, that's not the reality of my packet of oatmeal breakfast!

Barb - you are a great recruiter!

Have a Great Trip, TinkerBelle!
