Good Morning and Happy St. Patrick's Day!


We have already received our First Update of the Day, but sadly it is our last update from #1eeyoregirl.


For their final dinner at Disney World, she and her family dined last night at...







Here is what they had...





Kouzzina Ouzo-tini featuring Absolut vodka, Metaxa ouzo, pineapple juice, fresh lime juice and pomegranate served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass shaken and served tableside


"I started with the Ouzo-tini & DH had a Mythos lager. The Ouzo-tini was very good."








"We then had the bread & olive oils that they bring you and we ordered the shrimp app with hummus & pita.
They were both good & we almost couldn't stop eating the bread."








Braised Short Ribs, served over smoked Feta-mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables






Oak-fired Pork Tenderloin, served with Feta Gremolata, Wilted Greens, and Zucchini Corn Pie







Kids Hot Dog with Sweet Potato Fries


"For entrees I had the short ribs, DH had the pork tenderloin & both kids had the hot dogs. Everything was very good."




"We had a great trip and some great food! Thanks for doing this thread!"



3 February Game Points Earned + 2 Bonus Points for sign pic and First Update of the Day

ATTN: ALL READERS

Some of you may have noticed that I have started a Dining Report for my upcoming trip to Disney World (3/23 - 3/30). I have purposely not disclosed our dining plans because I have an "audience participation" game planned for my live updates which requires that our plans remain a secret. Beginning on March 23rd, I will hopefully be posting my "live from Disney World" food pictures and will leave it up to all of you to guess, "Where in the World is jabead?" The first person to correctly guess my location will be awarded a WITWIJ game point. So with a little Disney WiFi luck, you will have the opportunity to test your Disney food knowledge and actively participate in a "Live Thread" game next week without having to fight the Spring Break/Easter Week massive crowds.

We received an update this morning from Chris (dvc4life).


She said, "Good morning Barb. We made it to WDW yesterday late in the day and had dinner last night at Be our Guest. I didn't get any pictures however. We were sat in the west wing and it was just too dark for pictures. But I can tell you that the food was delish! We started with the meat platter and potato leek soup. The meat platter was very good. Soup was ok. Then my girls had the steak. One was charred too much but the other was perfect. Dh had the shrimp and scallops and thought it was very good. I had the pork chop and it was so good. Dessert we had one strawberry, one chocolate cupcake and one passion fruit cream puff. All were delicious. Me and DH also had a glass of wine. This was a terrific start to our vacation and we would definitely return."


Then their breakfast this morning was at Saratoga Springs'...

Artist's Palatte






"Me and DH shared the breakfast burrito. It was pretty good."







"My oldest daughter had the ham and cheese omelet with potatoes. She thought it was "eh". Said the potatoes were too spicy. I thought they were good though."







"My youngest had the breakfast platter. She liked it all."







"Oldest daughter also had an iced vanilla coffee. She downed it."



Then Chris said, "Now we are headed to Port Canaveral for our cruise. Can't wait. Be back on Thursday and will be dining at Yak & Yeti."

Our next update in this morning was from proudestmunkie.


She had dinner last night at Epcot's...




Chefs de France






Filet de boeuf grille, sauce au poivre vert Gratin Dauphinois et haricots verts - Grilled tenderloin of beef with green peppercorn sauce original potato gratin of Savoy and green beans



"I had the beef tenderloin. I asked for it medium rare and it came out perfect. The potatoes served with it was the highlight of the meal."







Plat de Cote de Boeuf au Cabarnet avec pates - Beef short ribs braised in Cabernet with pasta, pearl onions and mushrooms



"Bill (long time BF and my Disney partner in crime) had the braised short ribs--he ordered the prix fixe because we're on the DDP and he wanted the French onion soup. I couldn't get a soup pic 'cuz he devoured it. He said it was great (I did taste it and agree). Regarding the ribs, he said it was good but mine was better."













"For dessert I had the chocolate mousse and he had the profiteroles. Both were amazing! It doesn't look like a lot of mousse in the little dish but it is, do not be deceived!"

One of my besties just posted this on Facebook. This is great stuff y'all !!

Attention spreadsheet fanatics! I just found a free dining plan calculator. It compares the value of various dining plans for you based on the places you'd like to eat. It will also calculate whether you will save money with a free dining offer vs. using room only discounts. It uses Excel and has LOTs of drop downs, so I can see for week long vacations it could get tedious dealing with. I just did it for a 3 night trip in May, and it was pretty cool. There is a video that walks you through how the calculator works that you'll definitely want to watch, and maybe play along as they describe how to use the calculator.

Ohhh what fun Barb! Can't wait to play along.

You know, you really need to keep your dining plans a secret because you would likely be mobbed by Disers while you are eating and your family would certainly wonder what the heck is going on?? You are too EPIC around here!

Your plans look great Susan. And your post reminded me that I need to get the April game ready and contact all the April trippers this week before I leave.

Too funny! If I am mobbed it will most likely be because I'm not moving fast enough on the path to TSM at rope drop.
