I was able to travel with Andrew's lacrosse team as their score keeper so I cannot be upset about by unexpected time off. Their season is ending and I am about to return to work!

Sooooo, I am now really hoping to be able to pull off the December weekend and I can continue to plan our 10 days in August without fear of having to cancel.

That is really great news, Vicki!!!

And guess who else was at Magic Kingdom today?




"1coolnini & 1coolpapa's first visit to the Magic Kingdom. Yay, we made it!"




And they had lunch today at...





"I had read so much about this restaurant I HAD to try it for myself. We were in line by 10:40 and the CM told us it would be a 90 minute wait. 1coolpapa nearly bolted but I reassured him that everyone here on this thread says the line moves quickly."



A pic of the dinner menu...





"15 - 20 minutes later we had ordered and were given one of these..."





"We found a seat in here...







"We placed our roses and receipts on our table...








"In 5 minutes our lunch arrived...







"I had the tuna salad (it was difficult to photograph our meal because of the low light)...




Tuna Nicoise Salad - warm seared tuna steak with chilled green beans, potatoes, olives, roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, and hard boiled eggs



"1coolpapa had the turkey sandwich...



Carved Turkey Sandwich served on a warm baguette with Dijon mayonnaise and Pomme Frites



"We also shared the onion soup...





"And for dessert...




...Chocolate cupcake and lemon cupcake.


"For a quick service meal it really is a pretty good deal. The tuna salad had 3 large pieces of tuna. DH enjoyed his turkey sandwich and said the fries were good. Lots of onions in the onion soup (it was yummy). Cupcakes were moist and full of flavor, but somewhat messy to eat."

But they weren't our only live reporters who had lunch today at...


Be our Guest


Nicole (AvaMommy526), Ava, and Jeff also were there but they used this Fast Pass that was given to them at the ME desk at the airport yesterday.










Nicole said, "We set up the Fast Pass lunch at Be our Guest for today! Our window was for 1:20 - 1:35, we showed up right at 1:20 and went through. They scanned our room key for payment and we picked a table. We had a yellow rose instead of red."







"After 10 minutes or so, a couple of CMs asked what was on our order and the name but then it came right out! We didn't mind, the restaurant is beautiful and it gave me time to explore the rooms quick and take some pictures!"











"I had the French onion soup...




"I thought it was good, there was a lot of pepper at the bottom though. I wasn't crazy about it but it was decent."



"Ava got the Kids Turkey Sandwich with Pommes Frites and Applesauce...





"I ate her sandwich (which I knew would happen so that's why I only got soup ) and she ate the rest. The sandwich was decent, I did like that the turkey was real and not cold cuts!"



"Jeff got the Roast Beef with horseradish sauce and Pommes Frites...







"He thought everything was great! His real winner though was the strawberry cupcake! He said, "Tell your friends on the DISboards that they should come here just for this cupcake! It's worth the wait alone!"






"I had the Lemon Raspberry Cream Puff, which I loved as well!...






And last, a great pic of Nicole & Ava...

Okay so I haven't been following along much for the last couple weeks. Dang real life getting in the way of my dising! So I'm not real sure of what the dis meet in December is but it caught my eye as I just finished booking a December 7th - 17th vacation for the family! We obviously can't do much fun adult stuff with a 3 year old but I would love to hear more about the plans!
