DESSERTS & CHAMPAGNE
Dessert Trio:
Yogurt Panna Cotta with Orange Cake, Raspberries and Pomegranate
Dark Chocolate Mousse with Chili and Salted Caramel
Nesquik Frozen Strawberry Foam

Those sound good....the Nesquik sounds interesting, it it really strawberry Nesquik? Was the Mousse good? I love salted caramel.

GREECE
Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki One of my favorites

HOPS & BARLEY
Pumpkin Mousse with Craisins and Orange Sauce Glad you commented on this....we must have missed this in previous years, but I love pumpkin flavored desserts. Thanks for sharing!

I love the pierogies and kielbasa in Poland but I really think they are just Mrs. T's pierogies. So I could by a whole box at the supermarket for the same price as the F&W portion.

Is the cuddler a claw? Is it already cracked or served off the shell? I have a hard enough time balancing easier foods to eat at F&W, I don't want to lose half of the food to the ground!

While they are dealing with all that nonsense I will be enjoying me time in the parks/DTD!
Given that it's F&W, I would recommend that DH picks one of the myriad of sports bar in the Orlando area. Have your frinds pick him up (if he does not have a car) and that way they can enjoy as much time as they want. Otherwise, park at the Epcot parking lot. It's not *that* far from BW and you can hit some of Epcot on the way!

I didn't really care for it. Basically mushrooms, onions, tomato and cheese melted in bread. It was bland in my opinion.

In another thread, folks were suggesting coming in through the IG because the lines at the kiosks on that end would be shorter under the premise that most people will start at the main entrance to the world showcase, so we thought we'd give it a try under their recommendation.

Of the three, my favorite was the Lemon Custard Verrine with Blueberry Compote but I love things that are tart! The mousse was good but not anything that really stood out. The Nesquick foam really was strawberry nesquick that was in a frozen beverage machine.

It is a claw served with the shell on. The shell is partially cracked for you. I was able to do the rest of the cracking with my hands.

You crack open the shell and dip the muscle into melted butter. I am not a fan, but I am a weirdo.

This is pretty much true but Disney has caught onto this one regarding guests arriving by car, and giving out timed parking at the Epcot resorts. There are still options - valet parking is one, parking at DHS is another.

The other way to handle this is to enter from the main gate, but walk right past the kiosks closest to Future World and head for the back end of WS. Or take the boat around the lagoon.

I love lobster but was totally unimpressed last year with both the "cuddler" and the lobster roll. Not sure I will even try them this year.

We enter through the IG about 10:30 and sit by R&C is the UK. I think you can go there from FW also. A few times the booths in that area opened a few minutes before 11:00, so there was no line. Then when they dropped the rope at the bridge to France we immediately went to France and then the place that sells Belgian Waffles. That's the only time we could get Belgian Waffles with virtually no wait. Like I said, I think you can get to the UK from FW before 11:00, unless they're tightening up on that this year.

Just "hopping the bus" from DTD to the Epcot resorts is not so easy, as the bus stops at 5 different resorts and the last two are Beach Club and Boardwalk - the ones within easy walking distance of IG. Throw in a stop at Typhoon Lagoon if it's open. Throw in sporadic bus service at DTD in the mornings.

I went to the Hilton to return a car and it took about an hour and a half to return to the Beach Club from DTD. And that's with walking back from the Yacht Club, I got off the bus at Yacht and walked when it stopped to load a scooter.

Best thing to do may be get off at the Swan (the first stop) and walk to Epcot from there.
