I would like to volunteer to do some reporting. We are not on the dining plan and will do quite a bit of CS meals, but I will be happy to send some reviews your way. We will be down Nov 9-17 th. we do have ressies at Crystal Palace, The Plaza and Tonys. I have been very much enjoying this thread while counting down to my trip.

I'm sorry!! I barely managed to get pics with my regular camera. We got news on our way to dinner that our house in CO was under mandatory evacuation due to rapidly growing wildfire. My DH and I were both super stressed. He wants to fly back to CO early. However, since the house is evacuated there isn't much he can do so we are torn on what we should do. The fire has already burned almost 2000acres since yesterday afternoon. They have no containment as high winds and gusts are preventing air crew to help fight it. Those same high winds and gusts are also what is causing it to spread so much. So anyways that is why there were no pictures. I saw someone ask about the cheese soup. We did have that and the flavor was good but the consistency was VERY thin. We split a portion and neither of us could finish itz

I'm pretty sure that Becky loved her margarita, but she has already started her reviews so it won't be long until we can find out for sure. Here is the LINK to her Dining Report.

Good news here- we booked our WDW trip for next August. A whole week at POR before we get onto the Freedom of the Seas.

I've been having a lot of health issues this fall, but this thread is the best pick-me-up after a long day of work and doctor's appointments.

Hi GM! I've been wondering how your surgery went last week. Hopefully you will recover quickly. And I'm so glad that this thread is helpful.

But...YAY!!! about the news of your August trip. If by some chance this thread is still going then, I would love to again have the services of one of my best live reporters.

Thanks Jill. Right now our concern is my MIL and the dogs. My MIL doesnt drive so they are at the mercy of our neighbors. She doesn't want to stay where she stayed last night so will probably move to a hotel with the dogs. Will let you know if we need anything. Thanks!

Just a reminder that next up to the Disney Dining plate will be...


emmebear



emmebear is at WDW again from 10/25 - 10/28 and this time is staying in AOA's Little Mermaid Section. Here is emmebear's PDR.

She will be texting in live updates for us!




Also Linda67 is currently in California on a business trip, but will be having a little Disney fun too. Tomorrow she is heading to Disneyland! Linda will try to email me some Disneyland food updates (and perhaps some margaritas, too! ) while she is there. Also she will be meeting up with emmysmommy (Brenda) at Disneyland on Oct. 27. And they have promised to do some live reports for us during their DIS meet!




HAVE A GREAT TRIP, emmebear & Linda!!!

Chris (dvc4life) & family were at Downtown Disney this morning and had breakfast at...



Wolfgang Puck Express




Their friend had...




Scrambled Eggs & Garlic-roasted Potatoes







Wolfgang's Breakfast Pocket
Scrambled eggs, peppers, ham, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella and cheddar cheese baked into Wolfgang's signature pizza dough.



Chris said, "DH and I shared the breakfast pocket. It was good but would have been better if the crust wasn't burned."







Applewood Smoked Bacon Pizza
Scrambled eggs, bacon, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses are baked then drizzled with Wolfgang's very own Ranch dressing



Chris said, "DD had her favorite breakfast pizza. It was really cheesy and good."

So excited for our trip! Heading over to target during my lunch break and grabbing a few gift cards with my red card and extra 5% coupon.

Really hoping the weather holds up at least for mnsshp tomorrow night. Fingers crossed!

That looks sooo yummy. I've read Kouzzina's menu a few times and always find myself gravitating towards the breakfast offerings.

Thank you, Becky!

I'm not trying to be stupid, but is the crust supposed to be that crispy?

La Hacienda looks so good to me! I'm not sure I could convince the kiddos though.

And Paula also sent us a pic of this menu...
