Here's a pic of a sweet treat from Goofy's Candy Co., sent to us by stitchaholic...






Chocolate-covered Pineapple


stitchaholic said, "The chocolate didn't stay on well, but it was sweet and juicy.
I loved it!"

Paula (smile4stamps) & Hunter are at the Dolphin Resort tonight having dinner at...



Todd English's BLUEZOO



Paula ordered one of their signature cocktails...





The Serenity
Square One Cucumber Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Muddled Strawberries, Basil, Rosemary, and a splash of Lime and Pineapple Juice



After I looked up the ingredients of this cocktail, I commented to Paula that I had never heard of cucumber vodka.

Paula's reply, "Me either, but it is wonderful!!!"




For an appetizer, Paula and Hunter shared...



Teppan Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops and Braised Beef Short Rib with Silky Cauliflower Puree


Paula had the scallops...







And Hunter had the short rib...






Paula said, "The scallops and the short rib were devine!!!"


Paula added, "So to those wondering about Bluezoo...Neither one of us had a seafood entree.
I had pork and DH had Waygu beef...both spectacular!!"

YUMMMM...cucumber vodka is wonderful- I had it at Aulani several times, it made the most refreshing cocktails!

And that scallop short rib from Blue Zoo is probably my most favorite appetizer ever- I made it last year for our seafood party and people went crazy over it! Even the cauliflower puree is divine. But it's definitely easier to have Todd's crew do the cooking.

Congratulations Stitchaholic and Scar!!!! What wonderful news!!

Paula's Bluezoo looks pretty tasty!

What really caught my eye was the heirloom apple salad (app) at Narcoosees. The menu looks like it underwent recent changes compared to what is online right now.

Hi , we are back to reality now , it's so sad when a great trip comes to an end.
Yes , my ring has mickey heads , i adore it !

Thanks to Jabead for doing such a great job with our food porn and live updates

We ended up at Rainforest at AK for our last meal , but I completely forgot to snap pics , it's so dark and loud in there .
We started with Chimi chacha's , they were really good , corm , black beans , chicken wrapped in a won ton wrapper and served with salsa and guac .
Scar had the basil salmon with rice and veggies ( I was shocked , such an unusual pick for him) He loved it .
I had the rainforest burger , now I wish I took a photo of this , when I crave a burger , this is exactly the type of burger I want , thick 100% beef , juicy , with lettuce , tomato and pickles , it tasted perfect .

Of the 3 signatures , Narcossee's was my favorite , the setting of this restaurant was beautiful , it was much quieter than CG , the service was outstanding , but it was at all the signatures we ate at .

I just found this thread this morning.... and I'm totally addicted! Is the menu at Kona changed for good now? I noticed in one picture that the Tuna Oscar wasn't on the dinner menu.

Hi stitchaholic!

Thanks so much for all the great live updates! And thanks especially for sharing the wonderful news of your engagement with us. That has to be the most exciting "live from Disney update" I have received...just beating out Brenda's update revealing the face of DonaldDoleWhip!

So the gauntlet has been thrown down for all of you future live reporters...who is going to be able to top that???

Thanks again, stitchaholic & scar! Please stay in touch with us here on the Live Update Thread!

Hi Lauren! Thanks for joining in! If no one is able to jump in to answer your question, I'll ask one of our live reporters to take a pic of the dinner menu for us. We have many people traveling to Disney World in the next few weeks, so hopefully one of them will be going to the Polynesian and can check this out for you.
