Then we have Chavaleh's update from their dinner last night at Epcot's ...












This magnificent feast begins with a cold buffet that includes sliced deli meats, seafood, and a grand selection of prepared salads and cheeses...












"The girls and Jack all had meatballs...




Traditional Kjottkake - Norweigian meatballs served with Mashed Potatoes, seasonal Vegetables, and Lingonberry Sauce






Kids Meatballs served with mashed potatoes and corn







"Thomas had the beef tips and enjoyed them...




Seared Herb-dusted Beef Tips - seared beef tenderloin tips in wild mushroom sauce served with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.






"I had the short rib but thought the sauce on it was weirdly sweet. Met someone briefly while leaving who recognized us from this post, so hello whoever you were!!"











And for dessert...

The Via Nappoli dish is not the Lasagna Verde, it could be regular Lasagna or the Candele (looks like it maybe tube pasta broken up...)

The Lasagna Verde looks like this...


We had the Lasagna Verde and it was DELICIOUS!

Yeah, I didn't think either of the descriptions fit the unidentified picture I received. It looks like regular lasagna noodles not candlestick, but then I didn't see any spinach in it either for the verde. Maybe Jen will pop in sometime and enlighten us? Perhaps they have added a regular lasagna entree to their menu??? Anyway, I'll change the description for now to Candele, since I now see that it is definitely not Lasagna Verde. Thanks Paula, for the heads up!

Just caught up - what great updates

If I could go anywhere for dinner tonight it would be a hard choice between Jiko, Via Napoli and the Kona Sushi Bar

I love this thread, but it has reached a whole new level of wonderfulness with the Swedish Fish conversation.

I have just spent a little too long making pictures with Swedish Fish on their website at http://www.swedishfish.com/

Rest assured I'll be hunting some down come August Thanks for keeping this thread going and to all who contribute

One more dinner update came in last night, this one from 1coolnini.















"We both had "original" margaritas. Yes, I know, boring! But we wanted to compare it to our local favorite margaritas. They were great! I am sure we will find an excuse to go back and have another."





For their entrees...


"1coolpapa had the Carne Asada (cooked medium rare)...




Carne Asada - New York strip served with cheese enchilada, black refried beans, red bell pepper, onion, Mexican rice and guacamole




"I had the Pollo a las Rajas. Chicken with a creamy sauce over rice...



Pollo A Las Rajas - grilled chicken breast served over red peppers, onion strips, cream sauce, and fresh cheese



"As someone who lives in Southern California and eats Mexican food weekly, San Angel Inn was great."

Hi Barb. Well, we leave this week for FL and it can't come soon enough. I don't remember if I told you our plans have changed and we are NOT going to Universal now but will spend our entire trip at WDW. We will be staying 2 nights at POR Riverside, which we have never stayed at before and are really looking forward to it. Then Friday we will transfer over to the Boardwalk for the rest of our stay.

We have reservations so far for Boatwrights, Tony's, La Hacienda & Narccossee's. And who knows where we will be stopping for snacks.

The girls are really looking forward to Star Wars Weekend again. This will be our third time to go to it. So Wednesday morning can't come soon enough.

I think 1coolnini must have checked the thread and saw our intellectual debate about the flavor(s) of Swedish Fish too.


This just in from 1coolnini regarding today's Afternoon snacks at the...


Beach Club CL Lounge


She said, "We came back to the CL for an afternoon snack. I know they don't have beer and wine until 4:00, but I asked for a glass of wine "to go". They happily brought us each a full coffee cup of wine and a wine glass!"











"Four snacks this afternoon, plus chips and dip and cookies."





"There are 4 different flavors of Swedish Fish. Lemon, lime, orange and cherry."


Thanks 1coolnini for answering that all-important question!





1 April Game Point Earned + 4 Bonus Points (one for each flavor ) for solving the Swedish Fish puzzle

Swedish Fish are one of my favorite candies! Wilma-bride, if you have an Ikea where you live they can be found there, in the grocery area that sells food (usually the ground floor, near the counter that sells hot dogs and ice cream). I am an American that lives in Ireland and our Ikea here sells them, just as the one in CA I used to shop in does, so I bet you can find them in the UK

Thanks 1coolnini for clarifying the Swedish Fish flavours

daisymomof4, I will check in our local Ikea next time we're there (although we visit so infrequently, it's more likely that my trip to WDW will come around first)

Just a reminder that next up to the Disney Dining Plate is...






KGNOLA





KGNOLA will be at Disney World from 5/20 - 5/25 and has volunteered to do live updates for us!





HAVE A GREAT TRIP, KGNOLA!!!


Now for a brief intermission while I work on a pile of laundry and a few other household chores, but I'll be back soon to start on today's updates. I think we've gotten 7 so far from reporters who are currently at Disney World plus another 7 or 8 from podsnel and gabzee from their recent trips. So many more updates coming your way soon!
