Hi All!

I did make a special trip to the BoardWalk Bakery this afternoon specifically to get pictures of an open BB. I will skip ahead in my updates to Barb and send those over to her stat.

Then we received a couple of updates from Hannikins, the first from their dinner last night at...


Cinderella's Royal Table





"My wand!"







"Bread for the table."






Royal Tasting of Cheese - a trio of cheeses with accompaniments







Soup Of The Day - Italian Pasta







Roasted Beef Tenderloin - Sliced Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Duchess Potatoes, Asparagus, and a Chasseur Sauce







"Jam and Key Lime Cheesecake - didn't tasted any lime!"







Chef's Dessert Trio - Cinderella sent her Chefs around the world to discover new desserts. They are happy to share three of their favorites with you.












"Overall we enjoyed it, the character organisation was a little rubbish though, all characters started in the same place. So if like us you were at the end you waited ages, the small children near us were getting rather unhappy, waiting well over an hour!"

Thank you so much for these threads. I'm a big time lurker but love staying up on new options for dining. We have a *VERY* special anniversary trip coming up this fall and we really want to try some new places along with our old favs and this thread is super helpful!

I found my way to the new thread . I wonder how long it will take to fill this new thread? The many new food updates are wonderful. How am I ever going to narrow down my list for my next trip? Just when I think we are set I see another update and start making changes....

Barb, I have to add my thanks and admiration for all the hard work you put into this thread. It's the best thread on the DIS! My youngest DD (who did the live updates with me in February) was so excited to see we came in 2nd place. You made her night with our recap.

DeeDee (buzz1121) also sent us a couple of updates earlier today.


She said, "Breakfast yesterday was from...


Roaring Fork



"DH was kind enough to pick up the food and bring it back to the room. Unfortunately, I was getting ready and the only picture I was able to take was of my own breakfast."





Mickey Waffles with Strawberries & Whipped Cream (plus banana added) and served with bacon


"I did ask that a banana be added to the strawberries and cream waffles. This was done with no issue at all. Once again, my breakfast from Roaring Fork was delicious!"

Thanks DeeDee for the pictures of the BW Bakery and the close ups of the desserts. Salted Caramel Ganache is on my list for the summer.

Thanks Barb for this wonderful thread. Keep up the great work.

Salted Caramel Ganache
Peanut Butter and Banana Pie
Blackberry Macaron
Lobster sandwich- Yikes at the price on that! Would make a great counter service. This is going to be the new counter service place I think!
all salads
Salmon Sandwich

Then DeeDee sent us this update from DHS'...


Sci-Fi Dine-In



She said, "We were at Hollywood Studios for the morning. DD chose Sci-Fi Dine in for lunch. The kids enjoy the old movies and advertisements."


First some menu pics...























"DD and DS selected popcorn chicken and fries for their meal."





"They ate all of their food, which I take as a sign that they enjoyed it."




"DH and I split a bacon cheeseburger with fries."





"The burger and fries were good."




"For dessert we split an...




Out-of-This-World Turtle Cheesecake - with Heath Bar, Pecans, Chocolate Chips, Caramel Sauce, and topped with Whipped Cream


"The cheesecake portion was very good, with a good amount of caramel to add to the bites of cheesecake. The one odd part was the crust, which is made of rice krispies. They tasted a little stale."



"As with Kona Cafe, Sci-Fi experienced a menu update on Wednesday. The only change at Sci-Fi is a new dessert, the housemade candy bar. Our server noted that it was good but the outer chocolate ganache was a little too thick and rich for her taste."



"I was excited to hear of another menu update, as this thread should be having a variety of new food pictures soon."
