2 parts Myer's Dark Rum, 2 parts pineapple juice, 3 parts orange juice, 1 part sweet and sour mix, topped with 1 part Bacardi 151 rum floated on the top.
Bartender.. I'll have one of those. Wow, some 151, I'd be sleeping in no time.

That's it for tonight, folks! I'll finish up tomorrow with the final touches on Page 1 and a few other housekeeping items, but other than that I think this thread is ready to go!

Must have sleep now.

Good night!

The waiter kept pointing towards Tokyo Dining and said the discount can only be used in "the restaurant." it was fine, but strange that they would remove the discount from one but not the other- I guess because the teppan style dining is more popular?

Hey Barb. I hope you don't mind but I will most likely only be sending one or two one picture updates a day! I don't want to spoil everything for my DR. I hope that is okay?

Not only were the first to join in, Vicki, but you did it at exactly the right place! The post right before you will be devoted to you and Tracy. It couldn't have been more perfect if we had planned it that way!

Thanks Donald! So glad to have you here, wouldn't be the same without you!

Hi Linda! I've probably told you this already, but it is so great to have you back here on the boards and now here on this new thread. While I am very glad that you took the Route 66 trip , you were just gone for way too long!

It most certainly is, Paula! Whatever works best for you, is perfect for me. The rules for this are...THERE ARE NO RULES!

Well, except for no texting between the hours of Midnight and 6:30 a.m., that is.

sarabear sent me an update yesterday afternoon from Chicago Ohare airport. I was busy with getting the new thread going so forgot to post it.


This is from Wolfgang Puck Cafe at the airport...




Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza


sarabear said, "It was good for airport food."




sarabear arrived at Disney World last night and will be there until 10/2 and staying at AOA in the newly opened Little Mermaid section. She will be doing live updates for us while there!



And sarabear has just sent in her first "Live from Disney World" update.



This morning sarabear is at Magic Kingdom, where she had breakfast with the Disney Princesses at...


Cinderella's Royal Table



First she sent a menu pic...





CRT Menu as of 9/26/12





Assorted Breakfast Pastries






Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast drizzled with Cognac Chocolate Ganache and served with Bacon and fresh Fruit




sarabear said, "It was ok. It has raisins in it, which the menu doesn't mention."

Alice & Snow were at Downtown Disney yesterday, where they had lunch at...



WOLFGANG PUCK CAFE


First up are the menu pics...



































Bread Basket






Fresh Mozzarella & Proscuitto - basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and cracked pepper






Tomato Bruschetta - Goat cheese, pesto, basil, shaved parmesan


Alice said, "I didn't like the mozzarella. Don't know why, I just didn't . Snow doesn't eat prosciutto so she has no comment.
As for the bruschetta, it was delicious. Like, really really good."






BBQ Chicken with cilantro, grilled red onions and smokey bbq sauce







Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with bacon, peas and parmesan cream sauce



Alice said, "For our mains, we split the BBQ chicken pizza and the chicken Alfredo. I found the BBQ sauce on the pizza to sweet but Snow loved it.
We both enjoyed the chicken alfredo, although the portion was huge. I particularly enjoyed the pasta choice, it made the dish lighter than if it had been linguini."





Now for dessert...











Snickers Marble Cheesecake
Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust, Snicker Crumbs, Caramel, and Chocolate Sauce




Alice said, "For dessert, we both followed the waitress' advice and had the Snickers cheesecake. It was heavenly, and the third best cheesecake I've had in all my Disney trips. (The best was chocolate cheesecake at Artist point a few years ago, and the second was last night at Jiko!)"
