Hmm...I'm going to check with Susan on that one.


Ok, here is Susan's reply to your question:


"The frosting was just regular frosting and the center was a cream cheese filling. It was a good cupcake. Not fantastic ... but pretty good."

Ok, how about some more updates?


Next in this morning was PirateRachel's dinner update from...


Chef Mickey's



She said, "For dinner yesterday we went over to Chef Mickey's. It was a quick boat ride from the Wilderness Lodge.
We have dined here before and I'm not the best fan of this place. It's noisy and a bit disorganized."





First some pics of the buffet...










"Fancy salad fruit carving. This station was good and fresh."
















"Kids Mac 'n cheese, Mickey shaped!"







"My salad along with olives and hummus and pita chips."







"Mickey shaped ravioli. Yuck! This was cold and it was only 5:15! I got another serving when they replaced the dish.
The cornbread though was yummy."








"Jon's salad plate with peel and eat shrimp. He liked the shrimp a lot."







"Josh's plate. I know you were dying to know what he ate. He managed to eat a few chicken nuggets with ketchup, yuck! I tried to get some mashed potatoes and broccoli in him, that would be a no go!







"My second plate consisted of roast beef and ham, mashed potatoes and scalloped potatoes. I loved me some potatoes! Everything was piping hot and delicious. I was pleasantly surprised!"







"The real reason we ate here, Miss Minnie Mouse! The character interaction was very rushed, but Goofy visited twice and was such a sweetie pie!"








Now for the desserts...




"Did someone say brownies?? So good."







"This was unlabeled but tasted like chocolate mousse. It was very good."







"Cheesecake and Mickey dome. Just average tasting, actually tasted like it had been out awhile."







"Kaiti's desserts - cheescake and something unlabeled. She liked them ok."






"Josh's birthday cupcake! Naturally he ate the whole thing and had the vanilla ice cream too."






"Odd ice cream color for vanilla."




"All in all we enjoyed the meal. Most food was hot and tasty. I think I'm done coming here though until I have grand kids!
I'll do another Chef Mickey's dinner report in 2023!!!"

Then sadly we received HoneyBeeM's final update of her trip.


This was from her dinner last night at...





"We had a really great experience there back in November."




First some menu pics...


























"Roasted Chicken with yellow rice. My uncle said this was excellent."







"Grilled Chicken Breast with Fried Plantains and Black Beans and Rice. The chicken was a bit tough this time, but the black beans/rice was delicious!"








"Cassava bites (fried yuca). These were great as always. They remind us of the yuca fries we get at a local Cuban restaurant. So good."







"Not the best pic, but little brother had the skirt steak with fried green plantains and black beans/rice. He loved this meal and ate the entire thing. He didn't touch the fried plantains though. They were like cold rocks by the time he finished off the steak."



"Well, this is it for me. We decided to leave a day early because Disney is getting really bad weather today.
We are hoping to go back in August."

I feel the same way and we have only been to Chef Mickey's once!

I'm glad Rachel at least got SOME hot food! I wish I could say the same when my family went. I did like the Mickey domes though

Good morning everyone!


I have just a few updates to post this morning that were sent to us last night by Kacie (mommakacie).



She said, "My little kids did the albatross pirate cruise today and thought it was great. While they were on their tour, I went around and got some menu pics....."






"This is a "menu" pic at the Bayside Marina located outside the Yacht and Beach Club."












"The menu pic from Hurricane Hanna's located poolside at Stormalong Bay at the Yacht and Beach Club."





"These are the menus for Beaches and Cream. One is for the to go window and the others are for the sit down restaurant."











"These menus are for the Beach club Marketplace. Sorry, not the best pics. Then the sandwiches/pizza are from there, too. The open sandwich is the turkey sandwich, then the ham and swiss sandwich, and the pepperoni flatbread."




































"We all thought our sandwiches were really good!"

Next is Kacie's lunch update from...


Yak and Yeti



"We had lunch at the ever popular Yak & Yeti. The menu is included as well as the kids menu."





















"I got a cherry limeade to drink (which was yummy), but doesn't come with refills - fyi. I had to take my youngest to the potty and when I came back everyone had already started on the food. So the only food pic I got was the kid's veggie lo mein. It came with rice and french fries. My daughter loved it!!!"

We have received our First Update of the Day from Kayleigh (KMarston).



She said, "We had lunch yesterday at...










"We definitely saved the best dining for the last day! This was our third Italian meal! The first was off property at Ciao on the day we arrived. I didn't get pictures of that one, but highly recommend it if you are looking for a wonderful meal in the I drive area!"

"Second was Via Napoli which we did enjoy as well. That was an ADR I changed to after reading reviews that made it seem not as worthy as Tutto. I'm very glad we were able to try both for ourselves!"








"We started with the bread service. Our attentive server Paoulo graciously replenished it twice!"







"Jimmy and I chose a bottle of Banfi Classico Chianti Reserva 2009. A bold Sangiovese red. We thoroughly enjoyed the bottle at a leisurely pace. We were encouraged to take our time during this meal which was a very nice change from the other establishments we visited."







"Christopher had the Fettuccine Vecchia Roma with pancetta and parmesan cream - $25.00."


"He loved this and the pasta was perfectly cooked!"







"Jimmy and I both chose the Lasagna alla Bolognese - traditional preparation with Emilia-Romagna beef sauce, bechamel and parmesan - $25."



"Best lasagna we've ever tasted."






"Carla surprised us by ordering the Bistecca Del Macellaio - grilled Butcher's steak, rosemary potatoes, cipolline onions agro dolce - $28."


"She made a happy plate!"






"Jimmy finished with the Torta di Nocciole "Cortemilla". Hazelnut polenta cake, nutella, and sweet cream cheese. Very nice! I don't think I've tasted anything quite like it before."






"I had the Mocha Tiramisu with a delicious cup of coffe! It was divine!"








"Carla and Chris both enjoyed the Torta di Ricotta for dessert."

Next Kayleigh sent us an update from their dinner last night at...





She said, "Our last dinner was at The Wave! I had cancelled our BOG reservations a few days earlier and made this ADR on the run the same day.

The menus online are not updated and the picture of the menu did not turn out so I'll do my best to remember!"






"We started with a rye bread with salted butter with crushed red pepper!"









"Chris ordered the Whole Grain Penne Pasta with Florida White Shrimp, Cedar Key Clams, Calico Scallops, and Roasted Garlic-Tomato Broth. He loved this dish and was kind enough to share (trade) a few bites with the rest of us. Delicious, with just the right amount of heat!"








"The rest of us had the Beef Tenderloin with lobster mashed potatoes, wild mushrooms in a veal reduction. The beef was perfectly prepared to order and was so tender we didn't need a knife! Beautiful dish! Very enjoyable meal!"









"A poor picture of the updated dessert menu! Voted our favorite dessert as a group!"






No Sugar Added Dessert Trio - Angel Food Cake with Seasonal Florida Berry Compote, Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee, and Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse with Raspberry


"I loved the No Sugar Added Dessert Trio!"







Creamy Indulgence Trio - Olive Oil-infused Chocolate Truffle Mousse with Salted Caramel Sauce, Butterscotch Creme Brulee with Espresso Macaroon, and New York Cheesecake with Seasonal Florida Berry compote


"Jimmy and Carla had The Creamy Indulgence."






American Flavors Trio -Mississippi Mud Pie, Strawberry Shortcake with Vanilla Bean Cream, and Key Lime Cube with Citrus Cream



"Chris had The American Flavors Trio."



"Our meal here was unrushed as well and again we had an excellent server!"

"I had the biscuits and gravy!"

We have received several updates this afternoon, starting with this one from a new reporter who just arrived at Disney World today, roxysmum123.


She said, "Hi there! Roxysmum reporting for duty.

First meal of the trip was at Epcot's...



Sunshine Seasons





"I got the Caesar salad with oak grilled chicken. It was very good, my only complaint is that the chicken could be more "bite sized". I hate using a fork {Not sure but I think maybe she meant knife here?} with salads, but I'm weird like that."







"Also for dessert, tiramisu. I don't pretend to be a connoisseur of tiramisu but I really liked it!! Nice and creamy with a nice espresso flavor."

Next we received some updates from Arielle71 from her day at Downtown Disney.


She said, "Friday morning we had breakfast at...















"I had the breakfast pizza and and DH had the Belgian waffle with a huge side of bacon! Both were good."




"For lunch we had sundaes at Ghirardelli. Mine was a Mint Bliss and DH had the Espresso one (I forgot the real name). This was a good and refreshing lunch!"



Espresso Escape - two scoops of espresso chip ice cream, dark chocolate hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a square of Espresso Escape Intense Dark chocolate
-and -
Mint Bliss - one scoop of mint chip ice cream, one scoop of chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a square of Mint Bliss Intense Dark chocolate






"Before dinner we had drinks at...



Paradiso 37











"I had a raspberry margarita and DH a mojito."





"A bit later we had dinner at...


Portobello






"We had a bottle of Mark West Pinot Noir, very good! They bring you focaccia and rolls with olive oil and roasted garlic."






Chef's Antipasti Platter. - Misti Prosciutto, Parmigiano Reggiano, bocconcini, ricotta and winter park honey crostini, oven dried tomato crostini and house made farmer's market pickled vegetables


"We shared the Misti, an assortment of cheeses, veggies and crostinis, also very good."






Rigatoni Calabrese - Italian sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, and escarole.






Penne Bolognese with slow cooked beef and pork meat sauce


"For the mains I ordered the rigatoni calabrese and DH the penne bolognese but we ended up trading cause the rigatonis and a strong flavour of fennel/anise which I dislike but DH loves! Sadly we were too full for desserts."
