This thread is such a wonderful idea. It's a shame I only just found it. But I'll be checking in every day for sure.

We received one more breakfast update today, this one from our West coast reporter, Paula (smile4stamps).



Breakfast with Minnie & Friends
at
Disneyland's Plaza Inn



Begin your morning at the Plaza Inn for "Minnie & Friends - Breakfast in the Park" Character Dining. It's a great way to get charged up for the day with visits from Minnie Mouse and other beloved Disney Characters. The fixed-price buffet offers all your morning favorites including fresh-baked pastries, waffles and made-to-order omelets. Help yourself to all you care to eat while collecting autographs and taking great souvenir photos.




Paula said, "I liked it!"

Then our last update for this evening was from Jillian (sunnysideup3).


She and her family had dinner at the Port Orleans Riverside's...


Boatwright's



Jillian said, "We were supposed to go to Raglan Road, but with an overtired 5 year old and having been there and back for lunch, we cancelled and booked Boatwrights at POR. What a hidden gem."








Grilled Tenderloin Medallions
Served with potatoes (subbed for Mac and cheese), crawfish beignet, seasonal Vegetables, and red wine demi-glace



Jillian said, "Nate (her DH) got Steak Medallions and subbed potatoes for the Mac and Cheese because it has truffle oil in it and he has an allergy. He raved about it."







Salmon Salad
Mixed Greens, Grape Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red Onions, Carrots, and Citrus Vinaigrette



Jillian said, "I had the Salmon Salad and it was delish. The salmon was blackened just right and the citrus vinaigrette was a great compliment, and the greens were really fresh."

"Eli had the kids Mac and cheese and a ton of apples (no pic). He enjoyed his meal."




And for their desserts...






Butterscotch Crème Brûlée with Seasonal Berries



Jillian said, "I had the Butterscotch Creme Brûlée and it was perfect, not too overwhelming of a butterscotch flavor."






New Orleans Bread Pudding with Rum Raisin Ice Cream and Foster Sauce




Jillian said, "Nate had the bread pudding and said the Rum Raisin ice cream was awesome! Eli had a build your own sundae and they also brought fruit out with a candle and sang a zip a dee Doo da birthday song... The whole meal was perfect!!"

We have already received three updates this morning, vying for the First Update of the Day. The first came in by email from Jess (ILikeWaffles) at 6:12 a.m. (7:12 Eastern), so a little too early to qualify for the First Update.



She and Pete had dinner last night at...


Be our Guest




First a room pic...









Then Jess started with this...





French Onion Soup
topped with a Crouton and Gruyère Cheese



Jess said, "The French onion soup was a little bland."




Then for her entree, she chose...




Rotisserie Cornish Hen
with Au Gratin Macaroni (subbed for the Roasted Fingerling Potatoes) and Asparagus



Jess said, "The Cornish Hen was unevenly seasoned, but overall, it was good. The macaroni was delicious!"




Then a pic of the dessert presentation...








From these, Jess chose...




Triple Chocolate Cupcake
Chocolate Sponge Cake, Chocolate Mousse Filling, and Chocolate Ganache



Jess said, "The cupcake was just a standard chocolate cupcake."



"Pete had the garden salad, pan seared salmon on leek fondue, and a lemon meringue cupcake.
He said that it was all very, very good. His favorite part was the cupcake."







Garden Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette







Pan-seared Salmon on Leek Fondue
served with Creamy Saffron-crushed Potatoes








Lemon Meringue Cupcake
Vanilla Sponge Cake, Lemon Custard Filling, and Flamed Meringue Icing






Then Jess said, "Our waitress brought us some grey stuff (cookies and cream mousse) for our anniversary.
It was my favorite part of the meal."









Jess also sent this pic of the Beast in the dining room...






But then she ended her update with this great pic...





I am awarding Jess some Miscellaneous Bonus Points for this great update from Be our Guest. This was the first time that a reporter included in their update an interior shot of the dining room during dinner, so 1 point is awarded for that. Another point is awarded for actually telling us what the heck "The Grey Stuff" is. And then a third Bonus point for being the first to include a pic that you have taken with the Beast. So 3 Bonus Points, plus 1 point for the update from BoG, 1 point for the Beast pic, and 1 point for this first pic of Pete brings her total for this update to...
