"I ordered the scallops appetizer. I really have never had scallops before. I liked them but not my favorite seafood. I loved the bacon snow on top. The carrot purée was great too."







"Corey ordered the strip steak with potato wedges. Loved the steak but didn't care for the potatoes."






"I had the filet of course. I loved the filet and risotto but didn't like the pickled onions. They didn't go with the steak at all.
Also the truffle butter sauce seemed different, maybe thicker."




"For my dessert I ordered the Coconut three ways."




Coconut Gelee, Macaroons, and Coconut Gelato with Candied Marcona Almonds and Chili-laced Chocolate


"This was one of the weirdest things I have ever had. The coconut gelato was awesome, the macaroons were just ok. I didn't realize that the coconut gelee was going to be the main thing. It was this tofu texture type long thing that tasted like fresh coconut just hardened up. It was so weird I couldn't wrap my head around it. It wasn't bad but I wouldn't get it again."

Rachel, the reason the coconut gelee tasted like the texture of tofu, is that it actually WAS tofu. I almost ordered this when we were at Le Cellier last week, and our waiter steered me away from it because of this. He basically said it was tofu with a side of coconut.

Time to post a few updates before this afternoon's activities, so let's begin with Couchy's updates from yesterday.


Starring Rolls Cafe





She said, "Finally remembered to take a pic of our morning snack. Two double espressos and a cinnamon roll. Yum. DH arranged the snack in a Mickey Head for the pic."




Then for lunch they were back at their resort to have dine poolside at...


Hurricane Hanna's Bar



Here's what they had this time...




Pulled Pork Sliders with Cider and Apple Slaw





Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich with Four-Cheese Blend , Tomato, Avocado and Arugula


"Pork again for Wil and chicken sandwich once again for me. Can't go wrong and we spend a lot of time at the pool."







Sea Salt Fries


"We also had a side of fries. I really enjoy this chicken and avocado sandwich and Wil loves the pork slider. This place is a hit."





"We also had Hendricks...both of us."

Here is Rachel's update from their lunch at Animal Kingdom's...






First a menu pic...





Here is what they chose from the buffet...






















And for dessert...





Rachel said, "I loved the rice with curry chicken and the salmon! Everything was good except the meat was a little fatty."

Rachel also reported on a couple of snacks she had yesterday while at Animal Kingdom.


The first was a beverage snack from...








Frozen Chai Latte

"This was delicious for about half of it. Then I started feeling a little sick as milky things in the heat probably aren't the best idea even if it is frozen."





"Also got the jalapeño cheese pretzel. Awesome as usual!"

Next we have DonaldDoleWhip's update from the...


Contemporary CL Lounge



He said, "Here are the Atrium Club breakfast offerings:"
















Croissants (regular and multigrain)







Cereal






Steel-Cut Oatmeal






Oatmeal toppings, including dried pineapple, banana chips, and brown sugar



"Before heading off to my morning destination, I prepared a bowl of oatmeal and fruit plate for my mom."











"I enjoyed some strawberries, grapes, and a multigrain croissant. The croissant was interesting - it had a slight crunch and nutty flavor."

First we have Uncle Boo...



"Enjoying some nice refreshing coconut water."

"DS had chicken tenders and liked it."







Vegetable lasagna zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, onions and tomato baked into thin layers of pasta

"We picked these up in Mexico..."




"The package says its hot and salted tamarind flavored candy. This got mixed reviews... My dad loved it but my son hated it. It tastes like salted pepper flavored fruit snacks and I wasn't a fan."





"And neither was Boo."

Next in last night were some updates from keypooh90.


First one was from their dinner last night at the Art of Animation resort.






















"My mom had the surf and surf burger with marinated cole slaw and chocolate gelato for dessert."






"My mom said "The best burger on site. The cole slaw is different, fresh and crispy. The gelato is delicious and creamy."









"I had the butter chicken with basmati rice, naan bread, and sides of acorn squash and spinach with paneer cheese and torrone (honey almond) gelato."





She said, "This tastes like Boma, which I love. The naan was perfectly cooked, the butter chicken was tender with a good spice, and the squash tasted like thanksgiving. The spinach was cooked perfectly but needed a little salt. "






"The torrone gelato is my favorite. I love the honey-almond combination."




"Then my mom and I had drinks Port Orleans Riverside.





River Roost Lounge





"She had the Godiva flight which was white chocolate, caramel, and original with infused strawberry. She loved all three but thought the white chocolate was the best."






"I had the strawberry julep. This was refreshing, delicious and super strong! Perfect for a hot summer day."







"Then for snack we shared two snack orders of macaroni and cheese from Sassagoula. We love this macaroni and cheese! It is super creamy and was a great snack!"

Then we received this cool update from DonaldDoleWhip.



He said, "This update isn't food-related at all, but there aren't a lot of water park pics around so I wanted to share these!"







"I arrived at Blizzard Beach about 10 minutes before it opened. This gave me just enough time to rent a locker, apply some sunscreen, and join the crowd for rope drop."





"Summit Plummet is the second-tallest and fastest free fall slide in the world. I love it, and I got to ride it twice before a line started building up."








"There are lots of other slides in the park, but most of them are much milder. There's something for everyone here (including areas for toddlers and big kids/tweens)."







"In comparison to Typhoon Lagoon's wave pool (which unleashes a massive wave every 90 seconds), the waves in Meltaway Bay are constant but gentler."






"Blizzard Beach definitely has my approval!"











"After riding Summit Plummet twice, chilling in Meltaway Bay, and taking these pictures, I left the park and headed to Typhoon Lagoon."






"Blizzard Beach has taller and faster slides, but Typhoon Lagoon has its own major draws. The wave pool here is a destination in itself, and I spent a good amount of time in it."








"Off in the distance is Mount Mayday, along with the three enclosed speed slides of Humunga Kowabunga."





"Humunga Kowabunga's drop is only five stories (compared to Summit Plummet's 120 feet), but this ride is more thrilling to me because it's in the dark."








Shark Reef








Castaway Creek



"Another star attraction at Typhoon Lagoon is Crush n' Gusher."






"Located in Hideaway Bay, this water coaster has an amazing theme. It's an abandoned fruit processing factory!"







"There are three different slides - Pineapple Plunger, Coconut Crusher, and Banana Blaster. Last time I was here, the slide that allows single riders (Coconut Crusher) was down, but this time it was working so I got to ride it again!"






"Bonus pic from Blizzard Beach - I've got my eye on that gator..."

Then after his water park adventures on Friday morning, DonaldDoleWhip had lunch with his mom at the Contemporary's...





He said, "My most recent meals here have been great, but my mom's last experience here was a disappointing lunch two years ago. I was hoping this meal would show her what The Wave is truly capable of."



"Here's the full menu:"






"If I were still eating beef, I'd definitely order the build-your-own burger!"








"We both decided to start with the Summer Salad (Watermelon, Arugula, Feta, Pero Farms Peppers, and Blood Orange Vinaigrette)."




"Just before we started eating, someone arrived at the table with some bacon, which was apparently supposed to be on top of the salad. We had no idea there was bacon on the salad in the first place (we wouldn't have wanted it), so this went untouched."



"As for the salad, it was quite good, with the sweet watermelon and salty feta pairing well. That said, this salad was less interesting than last year's summer salad, and there was a bit too much dressing. Normally we both ask for dressing on the side to avoid this problem, but it had slipped our mind here."





"For my main, I chose another appetizer - the Sustainable Fish Tacos with Avocado Gelato. I really liked these over winter break and enjoyed them again. This time, they had a slight coconut flavor, and the avocado gelato was still amazingly creamy."







"My mom got an entrée she's had before - the Mediterranean Tuna Salad. This was actually the highlight of our lunch here two years ago, but unfortunately it disappointed her this time. She felt that the greens were "drenched" in dressing. I had some and agreed."






"The Wave can be hit-or-miss for us, and unfortunately this was more of a miss."

And now for our final (and 32nd ) update sent yesterday, we have Rachel (rachel09985) & Corey's three-part update from Downtown Disney.


Rachel said, "We did a split dinner again tonight. I had..."










"Went with the chicken Alfredo with peas and bacon. This was satisfying and hit the spot."





"Corey went to...













"And had the chicken tenders with fries."






"Then we went to..."








"And had the peanut butter hot fudge sundae."


"Corey said the sundae was silly good. Haha. It was delicious. I love their hot fudge."
