Next this morning we received an update from anniebean, and sadly it was the final one from their trip.


She said, "Sorry last update is late. Had a long drive home. Our last meal was at Magic Kingdom's..."


Columbia Harbour House






"I got my usual Lighthouse Sandwich...





... and Geoff got the shrimp with cocktail sauce."




"I also had chocolate cake and he had the peach cobbler." (no pic)
"Oh...got the chips instead of fries. BAD MOVE ON MY PART!!! They were stale and flavorless."




"We left with 2 QS credits remaining, but couldn't squeeze anymore meals into our tummies. We did get a few snacks though..."




"Popcorn in a Dumbo souvenir bucket."






"Roasted cinnamon almonds."






"And a last Dole Whip float (not pictured) and a new discovery..."



Citrus Swirl



"Then this was us on the boat ride back to the resort, realizing we gotta go back to the real world."






"And just because I had to answer this question daily for friends and family on this trip...NO, THERE WAS NO PROPOSAL OF ANY KIND. HE KNOWS I'M A PRINCESS, AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS."




And just because anniebean and her DBF, Geoff, were such a fun couple to have as live reporters this last week, I couldn't have their last photo be a sad one.


So instead, I'm signing them off with my favorite photo of them...

Now back to Paul (GrandCalifornian) & family at Animal Kingdom, where they had lunch today at...















"After some difficulty deciding, Paul chose the Pork ribs."



Baby Back Ribs - slow-roasted ribs, hoisin BBQ sauce, chicken fried rice, sweet chili slaw




"While Melissa chose the shrimp and steak."



Shaoxing Steak and Shrimp - skirt steak, tempura-battered shrimp, jasmine rice, stir-fried vegetables, chili plum dipping sauce




"And Allie had the Kids Vegetable Lo Mein with rice and applesauce."





"The entrees were excellent but we both preferred the ribs. They were very meaty, fall off the bone tender, and had an Asian BBQ sauce that was unlike anything we had ever had. They are in contention for the best ribs we've had at WDW."



"For dessert, we got the fried wontons."





Fried Wontons - Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons, vanilla ice cream, honey vanilla drizzle




"And our server recommended the Mango pie."



Mango Pie with a shortbread cookie crust, and topped with fresh whipped cream




"Allie got chocolate pudding with marshmallows."




"She mad sure no marshmallows were left uneaten."



"After lunch we went upstairs to take pictures and Allie joined in with her camera."

Nice! Yes, I can tell but that is only because the 6D pictures are amazing!! Tell her nice job! That is cool about the built in wifi.
