The next three updates received yesterday were sadly the last from David (bigdave10000). First was a three-part lunch and snack update from Epcot.


David said, "We went to Epcot on Wednesday and stopped at Germany's..."









"I had the brat and Colleen had a side of German potato salad."




"The potato salad was good, the brat wasn't good. The bread was horrible. Huge, dry, and tasteless."




"We then got some caramel corn from..."







"We got a small bag. It was great. Plus you can get an Annual Pass discount because it is attached to the store."





"We then stopped in Morocco for a snack from..."







"We got a side order of couscous."



"We get this every trip. It is awesome."

David's final update was a great one, as he and Colleen headed back to Epcot on Wednesday to have dinner at France's...


Monsieur Paul











Cocktail & Wine List










David said, "I started with a glass of champagne and Colleen had the vouvray."






"That was followed by the amuse bouche, a cheese puff pastry. It was ok."





"Regular menu followed by the Prix Fixe menu. Prix Fixe was $89 a person."











Prix Fixe Menu





"After we ordered we were offered a choice of breads."





"I had the mini baguette and the bacon mushroom roll."





"Colleen had the poppy seed and the multi-grain."






"We next had appetizers. I had the escargot ravioli...



Raviole d'escargots, creme au persil - Escargot raviole, cream of parsley


...and Colleen got the salmon."



Saumon mi-cuit marine, salade de concombre - Lightly cooked marinated salmon, blinis, cucumber salad


"Mine was just ok, Colleen's was awesome."



"For dinner I had the duck and it was amazing."




Magret de canard a l'orange, pommes paillasson, jeune carottes - Roasted duck breast a l'orange, grated potatoes and baby carrots



"Colleen had the scallops and loved them."










"After dinner we had our first dessert of the trip. We just aren't dessert people. We split the rum cake."

"It was great. Moist but not soggy."

"Well that was it for us. We have really enjoyed reporting."

Then another two-part update from Maiky was received last night.


He said, "For dinner we went to the Coronado Springs Resort's....


Maya Grill



"Last time we really enjoyed our meal here, but today it was just okay."



"We began with chips and salsas...




... and we also ordered the Margarita Flight. (Iván's favorite was the Mango Basil Margarita and my favorite was the Horchata Margarita)."






"For our appetizers I ordered the Queso Fundido (melted cheese with poblano peppers, chorizo and flour tortillas)."





"And Iván chose the Southwest Spring Rolls (A medley of black beans, sweet corn, roasted red peppers and Monetery Jack cheese rolled into crispy spring roll wrappers served with a tangy BBQ dipping sauce)."






"For our entrées I chose the Three Amigos (Chicken Tinga Enchilada, Seasoned Beef Enchilada and Cheese Enchilada served with rice, refried beans, and corn soufflé)."





"And Iván chose the Filet Mignon (Fire-grilled with roasted fingerling potatoes, haricot verts, and a port reduction)."






"For dessert Iván ordered one of their Dessert Shots, Cappuccino Dulce de Leche."






"And I ordered the Coconut Flan (which was very good...rich and creamy)."








"After dinner we went to Epcot for Illuminations but before the show we ordered two Martinis from..."


L'Artisan des Glaces


"I really hated the flavor combination I chose; caramel fleur de sel, profiterole and a shot of Grand Manier."





"Iván loved the Piña Colada flavor combining the Coconut White Chocolate ice cream and the pineapple sorbet with a shot of rum."
