The Margarita flight that auntfrannie had was actually from The Rix Lounge at the Coronado Springs Resort. Not sure if La Cava still offers a margarita flight??? But if it's just a Pineapple margarita that you want, then I think you can get that at La Cava. Can anyone confirm?

The Pineapple Margarita is available at La Cava. I tried it when we were down for F&W, it's very good.

Did someone mention Margaritas?

They took the marg flight off the menu at La Cava as it was just too time consuming for the bar tenders in such a busy location

They still do a tequilla flight though

If you visit during a slow time and ask nicely, they will sometimes do the marg flight for you

Then Gabrielle sent us another update from the Grand Floridian Resort's...























She said, "We both got the Buckingham tea. I had a berry tea that wasn't on the menu and mom had the mango oolong tea."














"Our favorites of the sandwiches were the cucumber, salmon, and curry chicken salad."






"This was my favorite course of the tea. Everything was very nice."




"We then got to pick two pastries. I got the swan mango mousse and the Linder tart."







"Mom got a cannoli and chocolate strawberry."






"It ended up being a long meal but it was nice to listen to the band that was playing live."

The next update was the first received from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World today, tallen429.


She said, "Hi Barb! What a beautiful day at Magic Kingdom! I arrived this morning and my first meal was at...



Liberty Tree Tavern



"I was a bit late for my ADR and the waiting area was quite busy, but I only waited a few minutes. My server came right over and I asked for water and placed my order at the same time. I knew what I wanted to try!"





Pilgrims' Feast - traditional roast turkey with herb bread stuffing, mashed potatoes and green beans



"Now normally I wouldn't eat such a heavy lunch, but I really wanted to try this so I would be able to determine if this might be a future dinner ADR and many of the elements are the same as the family style dinner."


"My food came in a flash! Seriously quick! Everything was nice and hot and fresh. I could make a meal just out the green beans! Everything on my plate was surprisingly delicious. Better than I expected. My only criticism might be that they could go a little easier on the salt. I didn't order dessert."


"I would definitely return!"

Another one of our live reporters, Ryann (RyMacJ), was also at Magic Kingdom today and had lunch at...












She said, "I had chicken tenders and fries...







"DH and DMom had Pepperoni Flatbreads...














"DMIL had the Caprese Flatbread...







"DD5 and DD3 had Mac and Cheese, Grapes and Yogurt...






"We had chocolate cake and chocolate gelato for dessert. We liked almost everything. The girls weren't crazy about the Mac and Cheese, and none of liked the cake--it's much too rich for our tastes!"

Next we have a couple of snack updates from auntfrannie.


Fran said, "With tomorrow being my last day, I thought I should send a few odds & ends."


Goofy Candy Co.













"The first is a Mickey Toffee Brownie. The first photo is the whole brownie; the second is with a piece cut off so you can see the inside. The toffee consists of the dusting of toffee pieces on the ears. There aren't any toffee pieces inside the brownie. The ears are solid chocolate with the brownie being the body of the hat. Rich, chocolate flavor but not something I would get a second time."













"There's also a spicy chicken waffle sandwich from Sleepy Hollow. As many others have said, this is a messy sandwich to eat! The waffle breaks apart as you try to eat it like a sandwich. Since I didn't care for the sweetness of the waffle I ended up just eating the chicken and the slaw. I liked the spiciness of the chicken with the cool crunch of the slaw!"
