FOR DISNEY WORLD UPDATES
June and July reporters will receive points for each and every update sent to me for posting on the Live Thread.

Is there more info other than the list of possible participants? I am definitely planning on attending ... probably the 5th or 6th thru Monday the 9th. I mentioned needing those days off when I was offered the job, just need to confirm it when I actually start.

Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by Nicole (AvasMommy526).


She, Jeff, and Ava had dinner last night at...


Cinderella's Royal Table







Nicole said, "Last night was great! It rained a bit while we were back at BLT letting Ava take her nap so when we got back to MK, the lines were really short. We never waited more than 10 mins! We did everything we could with her and we had dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. It was wonderful! The staff and the princesses were so incredibly sweet to my little princess. And seeing my little one run up to them made it worth any amount of money!"








"We were started with hot fresh rolls and whipped butter, awesome!"






"For my appetizer, I went with the Endive Salad with craisins, pear, blue cheese, walnuts and Minus 8 vinaigrette."




"The salad was pretty good, I love bleu cheese crumbles so that was a plus."





"He had the Royal Tasting of Cheese, it had a piece of bleu, a cheddar and goat cheese with accompaniments."




"He thought it was ok, but I really liked the goat!"




"Ava had the cheddar cheese with grapes (no pic), she loves grapes!"




"For my entree, I had the the Gnocchi with roasted vegetables."



Gnocchi with Roasted Vegetables - Eggplant, Mushrooms, Onions, and Squash tossed with Gnocchi, Arugula, Pesto, shaved Romano, and splash of Aged Balsamic

"The gnocchi dish was wonderful! It was perfect, I ate so much yesterday but I liked it so much I kept going!!"




"Jeff got the Beef tenderloin and roasted potatoes...




Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus, and a Tarragon Demi-glace

"The beef was so tender, cooked perfectly, he loved the potatoes! He gave me his asparagus which you'll see on top of my dish, also great!"




"Ava had the Kids chicken nuggets with mashed potatoes and corn."





"She had already had a roll, cheese and grapes so she didn't eat much but I tried it and it was all good! She had the Kids ice cream for dessert, she loved it of course. "








"Jeff and I both had the Tasting Trio!"




"The trio was also good. It had flourless chocolate cake, strawberry jam and key lime cheesecake and a white chocolate custard! It was all good, Jeff and I agree the custard was the best!"



"We were stuffed when our wonderful waitress brought out THREE cupcakes lit for our celebrations!!! We took one bite and packed them up for the room."













"Ava adored the princesses and it was a lovely experience. We will definitely go again!"






Then a snack update from...

Aloha Isle





"Then as we finished up Adventureland, I had to have a Dole Whip to watch Celebrate the Magic (which I loved!!!) and Wishes (my favorite!)."












"Oh, and here's a bonus photo. It's not food related but I think some people may get a kick out of it... I stated that this ride photo pretty much sums up our lives..."







4 April Game Points Earned + 10 Bonus Points for pic with Cinderella, menu, Wishes pics, Buzz Lightyear ride pic, and First Update of the Day

We then received an update from Kaitlin (KGNOLA) from their dinner last night at the Polynesian Resort's...


Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show



First a menu pic...






And the cocktail menu...










"We weren't that thrilled with the salads, but we loved the...






"MEAT!!! So much so that our group couldn't leave it alone long enough for me to take a picture! The pulled pork just melted in your mouth and was very well seasoned."







"The only thing better than the meat was the show!!!"








"And the all you can drink wine!"







"The dessert was also a fave!"




Kaitlin also sent this pic from their snack (lunch) yesterday...





Mickey Ice Cream Bar


6 April Game Points Earned + 3 Bonus Points for menu pics and pic of DD

Next in was a two-part update from 1coolnini.


Part 1 was a morning snack update from the...





She said, "We decided to go back to DHS for a few hours today. We have snack credits we need to use, so we had a morning treat here."






"It is a small bakery inside of a gift shop with two display cases of yummy treats."





"Bad photo of their small menu. The real reason we stopped here is because 1coolpapa has been searching for a mocha frappuccino since we got here 6 days ago. They have some frozen type cappuccino drinks at World Showcase but they aren't the same. We went into the Swan and Dolphin...no go. I was so hopeful the Starbuck's would be open at MK but we asked and were told mid-summer. We were so bummed. We can always find one at Disneyland and California Adventure. ANYWAY...they don't have them here either. We are now convinced you can not find a true mocha frappuccino at WDW. Anyone have any ideas? It is not an iced drink, you need a blender to make one."








"We ended up with this carrot cookie and a frozen cherry drink."






"1coolpapa would've given the cookie 2 thumbs up...but he had the cookie in a firm grasp with his other hand!"

Then Part 2 was from 1coolnini & 1coolpapa's lunch today at...






She said, "We headed back after a few hours at DHS and stopped here for lunch."










"For a counter service credit you can get this lobster roll and cucumber salad..."





...and one of these for dessert!"



Chocolate Eclair and Salted Caramel Ganache
("And yes, I did have one of these a few days ago! They are very yummy. I love the gooey caramel in the center." )



"What a deal if you are on the dining plan."



"Note on the lobster roll, it needed a little something...Not sure what. DH was thinking maybe lemon. I was thinking green onion (but then I think everything tastes better with garlic and onion!)."

Then this afternoon Nicole (AvasMommy526) sent us this lunch update from...


Sunshine Seasons



She said, "Spending today at Epcot, we got a later start so we had some snacks in the room for breakfast and had lunch in the Land at Sunshine Seasons!"






"I had the Vegetable Flatbread Sandwich with potato salad, I thought it was great, I loved the dressing and feta cheese."






Turkey and Monterey Jack on Ciabatta with Chipotle Mayonnaise

"Jeff had the turkey wedge with Monterey Jack cheese and potato salad. He says the sandwich was very good and decent sized too! We both agree that we don't mind paying the prices for the food because it has all been really great!"







"Ava had Smuckers PB & J with grapes, she loves that!"







"We all shared the strawberry shortcake.... Delicious!!!!!"



And a bonus pic of Nicole & Ava on Spaceship Earth...

Next tonight we received an adult beverage update from Nicole (AvasMommy526).





First some menu pics...



























Nicole said, "We stopped at La Cava de Tequila so I could finally try the avocado margarita! I love avocado and I love margaritas so I thought win win....Nope! We both thought this was awful! I kept trying it hoping it would change and it just got worse to me! I threw it out, we also got a strawberry pińa colada that was a virgin cocktail but we had them add rum! This was pretty good!"

One last update tonight, this one a dinner update from 1coolnini, who had dinner tonight at AKL's...












"For dinner tonight we headed over to AKL and Boma. What a beautiful hotel!"









"Tonight they had 4 different soups. We loved the spicy seafood gumbo."






"Nice salads including a curry pasta salad."





"Hummus was great...Oh, you can almost see my habanero lime margarita in the background (very good)."






"Spicy chicken, really good."





"On the left was bobotie. I tried it, but didn't like it."







Desserts...







Zebra Domes






"Haha...loved this sign. No wonder everyone is so crazy about the zebra domes!"



"We really enjoyed Boma. If we were comparing it to Cape May, Boma would win without question. The AKL is spectacular. Better dessert selection than Cape May and I just felt there was a better selection of foods with great flavors. We would go back."
