And our last update sent yesterday was also from DonaldDoleWhip.


He said, "Before leaving AKL, we stopped at The Mara to grab a few things."



























"My mom wanted something simple to keep in the room for later, so she got a kid's turkey sandwich meal."







"I got a container of hummus to keep in the room. This was one of my favorite bites when we stayed at AKL in August!"








"I also got a snack for later - the strawberry tart."




"The crushed pistachios were an interesting and welcome addition."







"Soon, we left AKL and headed back to Yacht Club."







"For us, AKL has the strongest lineup of restaurants out of all the resorts. Mara is one of our favorite quick service locations, Boma is one of our favorite buffets, and Jiko is one of our two favorite signatures (if not #1 at this point). As for Sanaa, that update is coming soon."

Good morning everyone!

So the good news is that we received 25 updates yesterday!!

The bad news is that I have a busy day so I doubt that I will get them all posted today. However, they will all be posted eventually and I promise you that they are worth the wait.


Ok, so let's get a few updates in before I have to leave for work, starting with our First Update of the Day sent to us by one of our Universal reporters, Indy Denise.


She said, "I spent the afternoon [on Sunday] at the pool just soaking up the sun and Redds Apple Ale . Then I met the DS and DD at Universal Studios for more rides and dinner."


Louie's Italian Restaurant


"I ate at Louie's which is a CS Italian place. I had the pepperoni pizza and side salad."




"Honestly this tasted like cardboard! I don't know how they did it but even the pepperoni had no flavor . I like a saucy pizza (for a saucy wench! ) and this had none on it that I could see."





"Brandon was smart. He walked to a food cart and got a turkey leg..."





"He said it was the best one he ever ate! And since he eats one during our travels/outings whenever he comes them across them that is saying a lot! I am hoping he hates Disney's otherwise it is going to turn into turkey leg extranzaganza! And I will have to use his CS credits on me!
Fun facts : the BTG's are out in force and the kids have been great!"


"Also I got into a spat with a group of line jumpers on Forbidden Journey, which is the one ride Express Pass doesn't work on. I told you I was a saucy wench! I lost, they got past me. I am blaming the heat and the aching feet for my defeat!"




4 July Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for First Update of the Day

Our next update was sent to us by emmebear & Emme from their Sunday morning at...







"We started the day with the princesses before having breakfast."










Then breakfast was at...





















Emme had a blueberry muffin...












And emmebear had an iced Americana with toffee flavoring...





She said, "It's the only drink I will order from Starbucks. I was in dire need of caffeine and this had 2 shots of espresso. It was bitter. It needed more toffee, especially since they charged me extra for it."







"Then we started Sorcerer Mickey..."









"Korean dolls on "It's a Small World." Emme saw them and said "Ahn Young", which means hello/goodbye in Korean."

I agree for overall experience (since it includes animals) Animal Kingdom Lodge is the best overall resort for restaurants overall (Dolphin being 2nd). Sanaa is my favorite restaurant at Disney World and might be my all-time favorite restaurant (bison masala and bread service OUT OF THIS WORLD)!!!!

I would love to try this. Are they spicy?
No not really. They do have a spice flavor but I wouldn't consider it spicy.

"The cheese plate and wine paired perfectly."










"DH had the Pork Three Ways, which he thought was perfectly amazing."




Trio of Heritage Berkshire-Kurobuta Pork - Grilled Pepperberry and Wattleseed-dusted Tenderloin, Slow-cooked Belly, Braised Shoulder-Mushroom Ragout with a Zellwood Corn-Goat Cheese "Pudding" and Rich Pork Jus

Stephanie (SRiley1985) then sent us an update from their dinner Sunday at Magic Kingdom's...


Cosmic Ray's






She said, "We had Cosmic Ray's while watching the fireworks. We wanted Columbia Harbour House but they closed at 9:00, I guess. Cosmic Ray's was so busy. The CM's were running around like crazy."







"We both had the Rotisserie Chicken meal. It was really impressive. The green beans were the best part - seasoned perfectly with a nice crispy textures."

Stephanie also sent us some updates from their day at Epcot, starting with a breakfast snack from...


Sunshine Seasons






"We split this shortcake. Delicious but way too small. We each got like 3 bites!"



"Then for lunch, we stopped at..."











"John had nachos with a mango soda. He loved the soda! I had a taste and it was definitely good."




"I had the nachos with no sour cream, a wild berry margarita and an ice water. I thought the chips tasted kind of stale and I've had better nachos at Applebee's, honestly. The margarita didn't really taste like wild berry. I took a few sips and threw it out. Loved the ice water though."

Next in yesterday were some updates from DonaldDoleWhip.


He said, "After getting back from Jiko, we relaxed in the room and watched parts of IllumiNations from our patio."








"Then I was going to head to DTD for the planned Dis meet, when I got a call from a 407 number. It was my mom telling me she couldn't find her phone. After freaking out for a bit, I remembered that we could track her phone using a certain app. This helped verify that her phone was still at AKL, and fortunately it was on the ground inside The Mara."



"Instead of heading to DTD, I decided to check out the expanded Boardwalk Bakery."
















"I didn't know you could add grilled shrimp or chicken to the salads!"

























"I'd already eaten the strawberry tart, but my mom felt like a sweet, non-pastry confection. That's why I headed here:"

















"S'mores square - she enjoyed it!"

"This place looks amazing. I love the cool color scheme, rustic decor, and playful use of dairy containers."


























Menu






"I got the strawberry sorbet and melon sorbet. Both were smooth, fruity, and delicious, but I especially loved the melon."

Again, I want to thank Barb so much for putting up with my delay and continuing to share these updates (in addition to dozens of others each day!). My updates thus far haven't been too food-centric, but I promise there's some amazing stuff coming up.
Mr. DDW you had such awesome updates. Thanks for sharing your photos. I especially liked the water parks pictures.

Thanks Barb for keeping up with the massive updates over the holiday weekend!!

Now we have emmebear's final update from her weekend trip.

She and Emme met up with Rachel & Corey at Magic Kingdom and they had lunch at..



















"Actual touch screens that I can use myself like at Contempo Cafe. They still had a CM walking around to help but I was able to touch what I wanted to eat. The line moved so much more quickly than I am accustomed to."























"Emme and I split the turkey sandwich. I added all her toppings onto my half as she only ate the turkey. I loved the crunch of the red onions and the veggies."











"Strawberry cupcake we took to go. They were out of containers so I put it inside of a cup."















"We had a nice lunch with Corey and Rachel. Afterwards they headed bak to their hotel but got us some fast passes to use. That was awesome!"




"Crowd getting ready for the parade..."















"Emme got soaking wet and I had no change of clothes so we bought a towel. Emme wore the towel for our remaining rides."













"Our farewell pose in front of the castle."







"We had a great time albeit short and Emme getting sick. Looking forward to August!"
