Oh my gosh thank you thank you thank you I LOVE that pizza/flat bread/tart thing and used to get one very similar at Pardon my French in the Mall of America but they closed and I have not had even a fake one for months and months. Now to sucker my husband into stopping at a trader Joe's on his way home tonight........

Hey Barb, it's Angebee again. I finally figured out my 'Disney name' and am switching accounts to use it if the name could just be updated on the master list please? Still looking forward to the same dates in September!

Also, oh my gosh the pictures from Be Our Guest! I'd love to eat there so badly. One day, one day....

I took most of the day off yesterday for a family outing to Chicago to see the Cubs game.




The jabead kids

Unfortunately they lost 5 - 0 in the 9th inning (it was a scoreless game through the 8th, so not too exciting), but such is the life of a Cubs' fan.



So anyway, I'll answer some posts first and then post the rest of the updates which I received yesterday.

Yes! Three points per location for every meal (one point for snack) at Universal, regardless of whether it's a TS or QS-type place. Also all of the usual bonus points are available for sign, menus, etc.

We received another update from Dena (Denamac) yesterday, this one from their lunch at the Art of Animation resort.






Landscape of Flavors






First some menu pics...





















Her DH Ed had the Create Your Own Burger...





"He said it tasted like a "school" burger so I'm guessing not the best."




He also had a side of Mac 'n Cheese...





"He said he should have ordered a plate of this!"





Dena chose the Surf & Surf Burger...










"So good! It's messy so half-way through I just got rid of the bun and ate the crab cake and shrimp with a fork!"





Her DDs both had the Create your own Pasta...










"Logan said they were stingy with the toppings. My girls prefer POR for this, but said it was good."



2 July Game Points Earned + 7 Bonus Points for menus, misc. pic, and pic of DDs

One more update from yesterday to post, this one from Kimmy2Disney.






Kim said, "On Friday (July 19) we had to pick up DD's birthday cake so we ate at the..."


Boardwalk Bakery























"Everyone got a lobster roll, so so good!"








"And here are all of our delicious desserts! An Oreo cupcake, strawberry cupcake, salted caramel ganache, banana peanut butter and bacon pie, and chocolate peanut butter bar."




















"OMG... All so good, and worth the trip over here for desserts alone!"





"Crazy cousin (13) opted instead for pizza at the window."

Boardwalk Pizza Window






8 July Game Points Earned + 3 Bonus Points for menu, display case, and misc. pics

HAVE A GREAT TRIP, yorkshirebelle!!!
Thanks Barb. We're leaving home at 5.30am UK time for a long day of travelling, but can't wait until we arrive at SSR. We stayed at AKL last year for our Disneymoon, and first trip to WDW, and enjoyed it so much that we decided to come back again for our first wedding anniversary.

Our ADRs are:
San Angel
Tusker House
Yak and Yeti
Sci fi
Flying Fish
Les Chefs
Via Napoli
Raglan Road
Be Our Guest
Crystal Palace
Akershus
Kona
Boma
Coral Reef
as well as the Wishes dessert party on our anniversary.

Obviously lots of QS, snacks and beverages will also be consumed! We are also visiting Universal studios and Islands of Adventure for two days as well.

That's all for now! :-)

Was on Yahoo and found this fun little article about the Best Disney restaurants.
http://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/best-d...15.html?page=1

It says both Disneyland and Disney World but it's mostly from Disney World and there are quite a few restaurants that are popular one this board.

Hi Barb! Glad you got out of the office and away from the Boards for an afternoon with the family. Boo about the loss unless you were a Brewer's fan!!

I'm curious enough about Dena's family's order of fried pickles that I may just have to try those!
