One more update was received last night, this one from Krista (aladdinsgirl) dinner yesterday at...


VIA NAPOLI












Menu pics...













Kids menu...









"We ate at Via Napoli for the first time and really enjoyed it. We always make an ADR here every trip and always end up canceling it. I'm glad we kept the ADR this time, even though it was pouring rain and had been pouring rain all day. The food was very good, the service was excellent, and of course I can't complain about the attractiveness of the servers.
Hello, nurse!!!"





Cocktail & Wine Menu...













Krista chose...




"White Wine Sangria. My first time drinking sangria. It was very good. I really appreciated our server offering me a to go cup at the end of the meal to take the leftover with me (we ordered a pitcher). Yes, I walked around World Showcase drinking sangria from a kids cup. Classy!"






"Fritto di Verdura. Very good, light batter even though it was deep fried. I know there was for sure zucchini, potato, eggplant, and asparagus. There were a couple more vegetables Stephen ate and didn't mention what it was."








"Prosciutto e Melon in the largest size. For 2 people. Yes I was embarrassed ordering such a large pizza!! Obviously we did not finish this and I have 2 takeout boxes in the fridge now."








"Kids Spaghetti & Meatballs. I tried a bite, really good. The sauce had a nice flavor, not too sweet like I remember Tony's Town Square being. I thought it was a large portion, Carter ate until he was stuffed and only ate about half."


"Unfortunately we were too full for dessert! Hopefully next time!"

EEEEEKKKK! Can't believe my name is finally on the "next up" post! DH thinks I'm crazy because I told him I have to take pictures of our food--he has already warned that I better take pics of his first!

We are leaving tonight but staying in Lake City, then driving the rest of the way to WDW tomorrow. Can't wait to start sending in my updates!

Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by Krista (aladdinsgirl) from their breakfast this morning at the...














































Here is what they had...




Cinnamon Roll






Sticky Bun







Bacon Egg Cheese Biscuit



Krista said, "Really good. I had the sticky bun, it was basically a cinnamon roll with caramel and pecans. Stephen had the egg biscuit. He really liked it and said he's getting it again for sure. Carter had the cinnamon roll. He didn't like it, but he's very picky. I loved the refillable mug station being free standing. Much easier.

Then later Krista sent us a lunch update from Epcot's...












Here is what Krista chose...




Ham & Apple Sandwich


"I really enjoyed this! It's like a grilled ham & cheese sandwich on crack. I've been meaning to try their sandwiches for a few years now. I'm glad I finally had the chance. I'll be back!"



And then Krista had a snack from...










Spiced Rum Dole Whip

We also received a couple of updates from auntfrannie today. The first one was from her lunch at...





She said, "An old favorite returned to the appetizer list:




Fried Herb & Garlic Cheese

"I think this is a boursin cheese (at least, it used to be but the menu doesn't list the actual cheese). It's served with a raspberry sauce and toasted french bread. It also has green apple slices and grapes."


"I'm so glad they brought this back! The cheese is warm and gooey and pairs perfectly with the raspberry sauce."




"For my entree I selected the...





Blue Plate Special


"Today it was grilled mahi mahi topped with mango salsa and served with coconut mashed potatoes and broccolini. I've never had coconut mashed potatoes; these reminded me of a sweet potato casserole with coconut that you often see served at Thanksgiving. This was an enjoyable meal with the grilled mahi mahi being a lighter option than other items on the menu."

And auntfrannie's second update was from a 10 point location...


Monsieur Paul





"They brought out an amuse bouche that was a simple puff pastry with cheese on top. It was a very light pastry but really didn't offer much flavor."







"For my appetizer I opted for the lobster. The menu lists it as Maine lobster with sauteed mushrooms, mollet quail egg, and creamy black truffle. There was also a small crouton under the quail egg. This was a very enjoyable and flavorful appetizer."







"I selected the seared scallops for my entree. Listed as seared scallops with vegetables, cream of cauliflower and ginger lobster consomme. There were quite a few bite-size scallops that were perfectly cooked. A delicious dish."





"The highlight of the meal was yet to come!...




"Le Moelleux: warm chocolate and almond cake with raspberry coulis in the center, hazelnut crust and hazelnut ice cream. Incredibly rich and worth every wonderful bite!!"



"I thoroughly enjoyed Monsieur Paul. The wait staff was very attentive. The server said they just recently made some changes to their menu over the past week. One thing he noted is that their bread service now includes a selection of breads rather than the baguette they previously offered."
