I just need at least a short description of what the picture is and where it's from. But I also welcome your comments and/or more detailed descriptions too, if you choose to include them. If instead, you plan to take pictures with a regular camera and are able to download them to a laptop, IPad, etc. and then email them to me while you are at Disney World, then that would also work fine for me.

So if you think either of these methods might work for you, then I would love to have you join the March team of live reporters.
Great!! I will likely use my iPhone since it is always attached to me. I'm excited!

Welcome to the March team! I'll send you a copy of the PM I sent out recently to the rest of the team. This should give you everything you need for sending me your updates.

Hi Couchy and welcome back! I can't wait to see your cruise pics, I bet they're great. Do you need my email address or do you already have it?

And no problem with the delay, as the thread is pretty active right now with Disney World reporters. However, things will be slowing way down in another 10 days or so, so I might save your cruise pics to post then. Would that be okay?

Let's start out this evening with an update from Angebee.

She said, "Yesterday was our full Epcot day! We were so excited to FINALLY ride Test Track after 18 years of waiting that we forgot breakfast.

So we grabbed these..."












"For our second breakfast (we're hobbits ), Dad and I split an Apple Danish while Kit and Mom had a bagel w/ cream cheese & jelly. The danish was like mom's pies: delicious. Kit likes her bagels soft all the way but still enjoyed the crispness on the outside of this one."























"Electric Umbrella for lunner (lunch/dinner) because I wanted points! We were underwhelmed here. "Caesar salad" had too-tough-to-chew chicken w/ more of a ranch than Caesar dressing. The cookies for dessert crumbled at first bite. Burgers were good though."












Les Halles






"And we got dad his birthday dessert a day late! Creme Brulee from France's Patisserie. He's glad he tried it but won't have another. The rest of us devoured our treats. (Strawberry tart, chocolate mousse & duo au chocolate.) Mom's mousse was rich but I want another tart!!"

Next we have a lunch update from Emily & Brenda, who were at DHS earlier today and had lunch at...


Sci-Fi Dine-in








Emily said, "We split this Angus Beef Build-your-own-Burger. Ours had swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato. You could choose from swiss, cheddar, and american cheese. For a dollar more, you can also add on sauteed mushrooms caramelized onion, or sauerkraut. For the sides, you can choose from a cucumber salad or french fries."

One last update and then it's time to call it a night.

This is a three-part update from Kerri (wdwpirates).



First they had breakfast today at...


Beach Club Marketplace






Kerri said, "We just grabbed some baked goods as we really weren't in the mood for anything too heavy. I chose a plain croissant, Jim went with the chocolate croissant and he also picked out an apple blossom. The plain croissant was awesome! Buttery and crispy on the outside...nice and soft on the inside. I had grabbed a couple butter packets but didn't even need them. Delish! Jim said he loved the chocolate croissant...nice and sweet! It was his fav! The apple blossom was great, too. A nice crispy pasty filled with diced apples...a filling similar to apple pie. It was topped with granola and pecans and a maple drizzle. Would definitely get that tasty morsel again!"





"Next we headed to MK for the day and stopped for lunch at..."
















"Cosmic Ray's...it's a tradition for us. We went with an order of chicken nuggets and fries and a pulled pork Sammie with fries. We split both. The chicken was standard...nothing great...but Jim loves those little nuggets! The pulled pork is super tasty! The have a great BBQ sauce / marinade...and the pork is very tender. The fries were very nice..hot and crispy....no limp issues like ABC Comm yesterday! LOL!"





Then for a snack they headed to...

















"Jim really wanted a funnel cake with soft serve vanilla ice cream on top. And I went with a chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. Tasty as always!!"

Let's begin today with Tony's Town Square dinner update #1 from Emily & Brenda.


Tony's Town Square






"Delicious garlicy rolls with very nice olive oil with herbs."








"Cannelloni stuffed with ground beef, sausage, mozzarella, and ricotta and served with a marinara sauce, as well as a cream sauce."







"Shrimp scampi with linguini, asparagus, and sun-dried tomatoes. The sauce was a garlic sauce. It was very oily, very garlicy, and very delicious."







"Pistachio creme brulee with a birthday twist. I was pleasantly surprised with this. The flavor was very rich and creamy.
Maybe I'm just crazy, but I swear it tasted a little like coconut."

Our next dinner update from yesterday was sent to us by superchime and is a first for the Live Thread.


She and her family had dinner last night at the Caribbean Beach Resort's...



Shutters



She said, "I'd read some negative reviews of Shutters, so I wasn't hoping for much but apparently they have a new chef and we had a great dinner."




First a menu pic...






"Sorry for the glare. I couldn't find any way to photograph it that wasn't glarey."







"White super fruit sangria. Yum."








"DH's Agave Nectar Margarita. Also yum!"







"The kids went with pizza, but I was happy to see a lot of good choices on the kids menu: steak, grilled chicken, fish, and ribs."







Vegetarian Pasta Piquant with spinach and goat cheese


"This had a little kick to it, which I liked. They also threw in some extra veggies to make up for the lack of meat."


"This was the only vegetarian option listed on the menu (besides salads) but our waitress said they could work up other options on the fly. We'll eat there again later in the week, so I appreciate that. I also explained the game to our waitress when she wondered why I was photographing the food."








"DH was excited about several options on the menu but went with the special. Pork brisket with a BBQ-ish sauce, green beans, and a yummy little side with lump crab, shrimp, and corn topped with bread crumbs and baked. He liked that the best."




"The waitress said this will be added to the permanent menu soon."




"The little guy was "done" with the whole dining experience early, so we bailed on dessert but DH was kind enough to take a picture of our older son's ice cream..."





"I think the look on his face says it all. We didn't let the younger one know what he missed."

Next up is a dinner update from hotcarib.


She and her DH were at Animal Kingdom Lodge last night to have dinner at...



BOMA



Here are a few of the buffet pics which hotcarib included in her update...





Hummus







Tossed salad






Fresh fruit






Warm vegetable dishes






"Long Island Iced Tea...weak as koolaid."






"But DH loved his Magical Star cocktail!"







"These are all cold salads. Watermelon rind, avocado/papaya, and coleslaw...all salads I used to love. Tonight, ugh!
Almost as sweet as desserts!"









"Hearts of palm and lentil salad, hummus, arugula...all still tasty."








"Pearl Couscous and Seafood Soup, still tasty!"







"Pap, root vegetable salad (undercooked!), and lentils."








"Same old desserts."



"We are permanently crossing Boma off our list. Dinner tonight would have been $140 OOP with drinks and tip. I have eaten better fast food. I don't mean to be harsh and after 14 yrs. I certainly realize Disney's limitations... also, I am a chef.....but, this dinner was our Boma swan song."
