One more update came in last night, this one from roxysmum123.



She said, "For dinner I had a DIS-date with deena (LuvLuvLuv) and our friend Debra (I can't remember her DIS-name though!! I'll check for tomorrow). We decided on Kona Cafe for dinner and it was great as always."



KONA CAFE


"I had the only alcoholic drink at the table, considering technically I was the only one on vacation. I had the, unpictured, Kona Cool Sundown. It was like a vodka and cranberry with a bit of a twist. I liked it!!"





Kona Coffee-rubbed Pork Chop - Grilled and served with Wild Mushroom and Bacon-Potato Gratin, and Seasonal Vegetables

"Dinner was the Kona Coffee Rubbed Pork Chop for me. I liked it, but the rub was burnt in some spots. I liked the potato it came with though and the pork was cooked to my liking."






Togarashi Spiced Ahi Tuna served with Tempura Fried Vegetable Maki Roll and Red Wine Reduction

"Debra got Togarashi Spiced Ahi Tuna. She said she enjoyed it, but did mention how spicy it was a few times. She also said how delicious the Maki Roll it came with was. If I liked fish, I'd probably order this."






Teriyaki-Style New York Strip - Sirloin Strip grilled with Pineapple Teriyaki Glaze served with Sticky Rice and Stir-fried Broccolinii


"Deena had Teriyaki Style New York Strip. She also seemed to enjoy this a lot. I've had it on previous trips and can verify its yummyness."







Kilauea Torte - An explosion of warm liquid Chocolate inside Chocolate Cookie Volcano






Chocolate Fondue with Fruit and House-made Cookies



"Debra and I were the only ones to order dessert. Debra got the Kilauea Torte, which she seemed to like (and I also discovered I was definitely pronouncing it wrong when the server repeated her order) and I had the fondue which was a great choice. I felt like a good girl because there was fruit in it."

Our First Update of the Day was sent to us today by Arielle71.



She said, "Monday night we had dinner at...




































"I started with the asparagus salad. DELICIOUS! DH had the peach salad, which he also loved."















"I had their seafood plate (our server described it as being like bouillabaisse but it had all the flavors of a paella with pearl pasta instead of rice). It was also DELICIOUS. DH had the veal shank which was fork tender and delicious. We had the pairing wines with our meal but I can't remember the names."














"For dessert I had the Chocolate Banana Torte and DH had the Tropical Creme Brulee, both were very good and well presented."

Next in today was an update from roxysmum123.


She said, "Lunch today was at AoA's...




Landscape of Flavors






Surf and Surf Burger - Crab Cake topped with fried Popcorn shrimp, tomato, lettuce, and cajun remoulade on a brioche bun served with french fries


"I had the Surf and Surf Burger and it's just as good as I remembered it. No filler here, all crabby goodness!!
It's a messy meal so get lots of napkins!"










"And I couldn't walk away from the cupcakes, your typical delicious Disney cupcake. This place is worth a trip to Art of Animation even if you're not staying here. They've taken the food court style offerings to a whole new level."

She said, "Tuesday morning we had our 2nd breakfast at Kona Cafe."







"We had the French Press of coffee and I had a Lilikoi juice."






Big Kahuna - French toast, Pancakes topped with Pineapple sauce and Macadamia Nut Butter, eggs, home fried potatoes, ham, bacon, and sausage






Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and your choice of ham, bacon or sausage


"I had the Big Kahuna and DH had the Pineapple-Macadamia Nut Pancakes. Both plates were good but we couldn't finish either...their portions for breakfast are huge!"




"Later in the afternoon we both had Mickey premium bars."

One last update from Arielle71, this one from the final dinner of their trip.


"Our last dinner was at Downtown Disney's...


Rainforest Cafe













"I had the half rack of Mojo Bones and DH had the Safari Burger. Dinner was good but it was freezing in there so we left and had a dessert later in our room."








"I had a tie-dye cheesecake and DH and a chocolate cake."

Thanks barb! I'm still packing. I've had such a long 2 weeks, I'm sleep deprived & utterly tired BUT I'm super excited to work a half day tomorrow & off we go!!

We may be making alternate dinner plans as the weather may delay Rachel's flight. Regardless, Disney food here we come!! We can't wait to see Rachel! I've already bought 2 bottles of wine to celebrate Rachel making it to Disney.
