Just received our first update from Roma.
She and her DH arrived this morning and went straight to Universal from the airport.



Roma said, "We were famished. Quick service seems to get "meh" at the studios but a fair number of people said Louie's was the best of the worst, so to speak, so we headed there."









Pizza Combo - Any Slice of Pizza and a Small Caesar Salad (not pictured)


Roma said, "Unfortunately my hunger took over and I ate half of my pizza before I remembered my duties! We got the pizza combo plus an additional slice of pizza to share. Everything was standard but made our empty stomachs happy. We paid $11 and saved 10% with our AAA card."




Then Roma said, "About two hours later Mr. Roma said he was still hungry and insisted we split a churro from a cart. It was really good, although it could have been warmer. It cost $3.00...no discount at the carts."

Then tonight Roma & her DH were at Downtown Disney and had dinner at...



Raglan Road



And Roma sent us a pic of their dessert...






Gers Bread & Butter Pudding


Roma said, "This was our bread pudding "arranged" before we dug in."



"And here is our bread putting after...."







Ellen said, "We barely made a dent, there was still a ton in the cup. This was as good as everyone says...especially dumped on the plate with the sauces on top."



Roma added, "I forgot to take a regular menu pic but here are the desserts."

I love the Raglan Road dessert menu! Thank goodness they kept my mom's favorite (the trifle), but it's exciting to see a bunch of new dishes as well. Raglan is definitely on our list for next time.

That's the first time I've seen the dessert menu for raglan road. Now I'm even more excited to eat there in 30 days! The only problem is which dessert should I try...

Ellen sent a few more updates last night.

The first was a snack update from the...




Boardwalk Bakery




Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake














Ellen said, "I had to try the Peanut Butter Cake. I loved it...it was divine! But I was still full for my 8 p.m. ADR at Tony's."


Note from jabead: I'd remembered reading about this dessert on the Disney Food Blog a few months ago, so I was very excited when it was included in a live update.
Here is a LINK to their Snack Series article, in case you are interested.

Then Ellen was at Magic Kingdom last night and had dinner at...


Tony's Town Square



Ellen said, "Sean and I were alone for dinner, so we headed over to Tony's."







Bread Basket








Shrimp Scampi - Linguini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Asparagus tossed in a Garlic sauce



Ellen said, "I knew already I was having the shrimp scampi but the waiter sealed the deal when he told me the two best things on the menu were this and the chicken parmesan. It was fantastic! I would go back and have it again anytime. It had 8 perfectly cooked shrimp, which I thought was very generous. The asparagus was also cooked well. I was expecting mush, but it was not...it was al dente, very nice!







French Fries



Ellen said, "These were not on the menu, but I asked the waiter if he could find a big plate of french fries back there in the kitchen for Sean. He'd had a rough day and I knew this was the only thing he wanted."

RECRUITMENT TIME


Thanks so much to all of you who have volunteered your services during your upcoming trips. Because of you, we should have a steady stream of fresh Disney food porn to drool over from now until Christmas.

But here are the dates which we could still use some additional live reporters:


December 21 - December 27 - 1 more reporter needed

December 28 - January 1 - We have no one yet for these dates

January 2 - January 10 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

January 21 - January 31 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed


So if your trip to Disney World falls during any of these dates, please consider doing live updates for us either by text or email. Also, if you're going sometime between now and the end of January but not during the above listed dates, please still check with me if you would like to be a live reporter. I might still be able to squeeze you into the schedule depending on your dates.

Thanks again everyone!
