And a short snack update from 4HppyCamprs.










"Pretzel with sweet cream cheese filling. We split a few among the 5 of us. They are fairly large. They were fresh made while we waited and they were delish!"

Good morning everyone!
As promised, I have a couple of updates sent to us by MichelleWDWfan to share with you this morning.


The first is from her dinner at...












"I was seated in the back of the ballroom, on the opposite side of the windows."











"Love the napkin rose!"





Menu pics...
















Bread service








"Champagne! A nice complement to my meal."






French Onion Soup


"Delicious!"







Grilled Strip Steak with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites











Dessert cart








"I chose the dark chocolate cream puff."






The Grey Stuff for Michelle's Birthday




And a picture with the host...





Michelle said, "I enjoyed my birthday dinner. The decor and themeing were fantastic. I was not happy with my steak, it was very fatty with gristle. Everything else was very good. My server Joann was great."

And now for the one that many of you have been waiting for, Michelle's update from her dinner at...








Michelle said, "The whole experience was elegant and decadent. I had two fantastic wait staff...Sherry and Jack."







"I was seated and welcomed and a napkin placed on my lap. I was presented with the personalized menu, and Sherry recited the entire menu to me from memory, explaining every dish on the menu. I was given time to make my choices. I had to choose all 6 courses at once."








First was the Amuse Bouche...




From right to left: Alaskan King Crab, Cold Smoked Scottish Salmon, and Jumbo Lump Crab with Avocado Puree and Tomato Gelee






1st Course: Masago Crusted Gulf Shrimp with Ponzu Vinaigrette, served with a hand rolled French baguette with European-style butter (the first of three bread & butter courses)



"The tastes were amazing. It was an explosion of flavor in my mouth. I really savored the shrimp. It was delicious!"






2nd Course: Diver Scallop with Fennel, Leek, and Minus 8 Verjus Vinaigrette



"As Jack presented each course, he explained each dish thoroughly."







2nd Bread Course: Black Truffle Brioche with Black Truffle Butter







3rd Course: Braised Oxtail and Cherry Ravioli with Roasted Red Peppers


"The flavors were indescribable...really good."






3rd Bread Course: Seeded Multigrain with Fleur de sal salted butter


"All 3 breads were served fresh and warm. All 3 butters came from the Vermont Butter & Cheese Co."






4th Course (the Entree): Poulet Rouge with Hedgehog Mushrooms, Gnocchi, and White Asparagus


"Delicious!"






5th Course: White Chocolate Gelato with White Chocolate Shavings applied tableside


"Yummy!"







6th Course: Hawaiian Kona Chocolate Souffle, finished tableside with Godiva chocolate



"And served with coffee made with their Celebes coffee vacuum brewer. What a treat to watch this gourmet coffee brewer."






"You can see in the background, the silver service tray with the coffee accompaniments."









"And finally, just as the head chef presents you with the Amuse Bouche to "open you palate", the pastry chef presents you with a final sweet to end your meal..."







"Everything was so delicious. I was treated like royalty throughout the entire experience."









"When I left I was presented with a long stemmed red rose, a small loaf of their orange-date nut bread, and my personalized menu."



10 February Game Points Earned + 5 Bonus Points Earned for place setting, menu, pic with waitstaff, and misc. other pics

Wow, V&A looked great!!! I'm always afraid that there will be too many things on the menu that I won't like, so I can't justify the price, but that menu seemed really good. There was at least one appealing selection in each course, if not more. One of these days I will break down and try it!

I am determined to do this when we go in December for our 10 year anniversary. I am an anti-seafood person so I was a little worried, but I read on the thread that they call you and you can tell them your allergies and/or complete no's. And as long as you don't do the Chef's table, each course gives you an option of 3 dishes.

I'm so excited to see those photos!! Counting down the months until I can book this!

Victoria & Alberts called me 2 days prior to confirm and go over allergies. I have no allergies but told them that I dont like caviar. They accomodated me and when the menu was explained, sherry pointed out what to avoid since I dislike caviar. I sat in the regular dining room which was a 6 course meal.

The queen victoria room is smaller...and more expensive and a 10 course meal...just like the chefs table.

Honestly i could not have taken another bite. I wanted to drink more of that delicious gourmet coffee, but i was so full that I just couldnt.

My reservation was for 830 p.m. The meal lasted 2 and a half hours. I left the restaurant at 11 p.m. got back to my hotel and couldn't fall asleep until 1 because I was just too full. If I eat there again I would definitely try to get an earlier dinner reservation.

There were some really nice choices, and im sure they could handle most any special request.

Our First Update of the Day today was sent to us by #1eeyoregirl.


She and her family had dinner last night at...








"This place was beautiful. We had the pleasure of being seated on the West Wing."
















"We started out with the mussels & the meat and sausage plate. Both were really good."





Mussels Provencal with white wine, tomato, garlic, onion, basil and butter






Assorted Cured Meats and Sausages served with cornichons, pickled onions, and toasted baguette





"For entrees I had the shrimp & scallops, DH had the salmon, DS had the steak & DD had the kids pasta."





Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops with seasonal vegetables served in puff pastry with a creamy lobster sauce






Pan seared Salmon on Leek Fondue, served with creamy saffron crushed potatoes






Grilled Strip Steak with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites








Kids Pasta - Whole-Grain Macaroni topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella



"Everything was really good except for the steak. The charred part had a really bitter taste. DS took two bites and then just ate another roll."








"I wasn't looking too forward to dessert here, but wow were we surprised. We had the strawberry & the lemon cupcakes and they were incredible!!!"



2 February Game Points Earned + 4 Bonus Points for menu name pic, misc. interior pics, and First Update of the Day

Next we have a three part update from MichelleWDWfan.



You might recall from a previous update from a former live reporter, AuroraMeansDawn, that she and Michelle had an unexpected DISmeet when they were both in the same group for the "Enchanted Tales with Belle" show and both were chosen to be a part of the show.

Here is Michelle's picture from their surprise meeting.





Michelle said, "Meeting Dawn was a nice surprise and such a coincidence."






Then next is an update from the...


Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party


























Michelle said, "What a great way to end my birthday on Monday. I made a ressie the 1st day reservations were open for March. Tables were preassigned with your name and # in your party. I was assigned a front row table. The view was perfect. We could see the Electrical Parade and they piped in the music. The fireworks view was awesome, and the desserts were yummy. CMs kept them replenished...even the chocolate covered strawberries, which were huge. There was a nice variety of desserts and drinks."




Then the last part is a snack update from the...


Main Street Confectionery


Michelle said, Since I stayed in MK until 1:30 a.m. on Monday to do some shopping, I decided to grab a snack on my way out of the park. Love the freshly made treats from the Confectionery! I chose the hidden Mickey rice krispie treat covered in chocolate and mini M & M's."









4 February Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for fireworks pics and 5 special Bonus Points for DISmeet pic

So glad we ran into you Michelle. I knew it had to be you. Who else but a DISer would know they arrived at ESWB at 8:06 am? LOL Glad we were able to wish you a Happy Birthday in person!
