Next Rachel (rachel09985) sent us the final updates of her trip which ended yesterday.


She and Corey spent Monday snacking around Epcot, starting with breakfast snacks at...


Sunshine Seasons










"Yesterday was our Epcot day. We snacked around a lot. First we went to Sunshine Seasons for breakfast. I missed our boma reservation I had the croissant bread pudding and Corey had a red velvet whoopie pie. The bread pudding was great!"





"Then we went to..."






















"We had Chips and Queso."



"And I got the San Angel margarita...




San Angel Inn Margarita with Tequila, Orange Liqueur, Agave Nectar, Lime Juice, served chilled with a salt rim


Rachel said, "The queso was very good but spicy. It was not a good idea to drink this and then walk around the world in 92 degree heat. It was very strong!"




Then from Japan's...

Kabuki Cafe





"To combat the heat I had to get a kakigori. They were out of melon so I had to get tangerine."



And then last was a visit to France's...

Boulangerie Patisserie




"I got the croissant with ham and cheese. It wasn't as good as last time because the cheese wasn't melted."






"I got creme brûlée as well which was too rich for the heat."

Sadly Rachel then sent us her very last (two-part) update from their trip.



She said, "Tonight we went to..."





"It felt so good to get out of the heat"



"We split the large pepperoni pizza."



"We had one slice left over. It was yummy and hit the spot."




"Then we got the zeppole..."





"These were so good: light and fluffy! I loved the whipped cream that goes with those. Chocolate sauce is a little too rich for me."













"Then we get the New France ice cream place again. I had hazelnut, which was much better than the profiterole."

"They seek each other out, these people of such specific like mind. They tell of how they found the circus, how those first few steps were like magic. Like stepping into a fairy tale under a curtain of stars. They pontificate upon the fluffiness of the popcorn, the sweetness of the chocolate. They spend hours discussing the quality of the light, the heat of the bonfire. They sit over their drinks smiling like children and they relish being surrounded by kindred spirits, if only for an evening. When they depart, they shake hands and embrace like old friends, even if they have only just met, and as they go their separate ways they fell less alone than the had before."

Rather lovely, isn't it?
Yes, it is lovely. We are kindred spirits with a twist of lime. Thanks for sharing!

Next in yesterday was keypooh90's lunch update from DHS'...


Toy Story Pizza Planet


"This was a new place for us. We wanted to try it because we heard about the cappuccino cupcake."



"My sister had Fanta, cheese pizza and the seasonal Mike cupcake."




"My sister said "The pizza was good. The cheese was awesome. The Mike cupcake was yummy! It really tasted like bubble gum."





"My mom had pepperoni pizza, Caesar salad, a coke and the cappuccino cupcake."



"My mom said "I like Disney pizza. The cupcake was amazing. I love cupcakes from the Studios!!"




"I had the meatball sub, Caesar salad, root beer, and the seasonal Mike cupcake."




"I enjoyed the meatball sub but it was a little dry. The Mike cupcake was delicious, juicy, moist and really tasted like bubblegum."




And here is a pic of their cupcakes...

Switching over now to the Universal parks for an update from our reporter there, SwirlyGirly.

She had dinner at Island of Adventure's...














"The kids had Pad Thai which they said was delish, but the photo didn't come out!"




"I had the Risotto of the Day which was blackened shrimp, grilled veggies and a creamy tomato sauce. It was flavorful and was pretty good. If the risotto would have been creamier and with more broth, it would have been awesome."

Our last update sent Tuesday is sadly the last one from DonaldDoleWhip.


He said, "Our last stop before leaving WDW was the Polynesian."






Menus




















"Cupcakes (PB&J and Red Velvet)"










Some Restaurant Pics
















"While my mom was ordering food, I went for a short walk outside."

























"The Grand Floridian was originally named the Grand Floridian Beach Resort. I still can't believe the resort's beach (shown below) is mostly gone."










"At least the Poly still has its beaches (for now)! Back at Captain Cook's, my mom asked for a turkey sandwich on multigrain. She enjoyed it as usual, and it was a perfect last meal for her before we headed off to our airport hotel."







"Mickey in the Polynesian Lobby"







"Our flight was at about 6:30 the following morning. I took a few pics from the plane."



Jersey Shore






"Long Island (JFK Airport is near the center of this pic)"






"That's the last of my updates - it's been so much fun sharing them here!"

Again, thank you so much Barb for sharing my updates! I know there was some delay, but you still put up with me. And at the same time, you've been handling dozens of other updates each day!

Rereading my Sanaa review is pretty interesting right now. Just last night, we had dinner at an Indian restaurant in NYC. While the restaurant was great (I got an amazing cocktail with cardamom-infused vodka!), Sanaa holds up surprisingly well in comparison. In fact, the bread accompaniments and overall value may have been better at Sanaa.

Raglan Road won me over with our brunch experience. Before, I wasn't a huge fan of it, but this meal was great. Brunch at Raglan is highly recommended, and it's one of the meals I'm most looking forward to repeating. (Jiko, Sanaa, and Captain's Grille breakfast are also on that list!)

Seeing the last set of pictures is bittersweet. Not just because they're from the end of our trip, but also because of the GF construction. I've heard rumors that a (5-story) Poly DVC building will be built where the luau is now. This would further erode the open spaces that once separated Poly and GF. Some changes at WDW don't bug me too much (Starbucks), but I'm not a fan of the Seven Seas Lagoon 'clutter'.

Regarding the flight pics: if you search for Jones Beach on Google Maps, you'll see exactly where that last pic was taken.

donald dole whip- loved your updates! Too bad we couldn't meet up. It is funny because we were in a lot of the places at the same time- DHS on the 4th, AKL on the 5th, AK on the 6th! Funny! I loved the club lounge offerings. I agree with you on the jalapeno margarita, I was expecting a lot more spiciness. It was semi disappointing.
I've also loved your updates! It's crazy how close we came to bumping into each other. Hopefully we'll get that chance again sometime. And it's also too bad about that margarita, but at least they have a bunch of other flavors to try.

That is a beautiful picture of Jones Beach! Jones Beach isn't too far from my home!
