Our final update from Gabrielle and the last one for tonight is from her lunch at Epcot's...

















"It wasn't a sunny day but we had the perfect view of the lagoon."






"Mom got the English Chicory and Watercress Salad with apples, candied walnuts, blue cheese and dried Craisins vinaigrette."







"The rest of us decided to try the Fish and Chips...




"The fish was little greasy but the fries weren't."




Then one last snack update from one of the F & G booths...









"This was my first Dole Whip and it was heavenly! I can't believe I haven't had it before this trip! If you have never had it it is a definite must."

DH and I are heading down for a quick 4 day long weekend from June 15th to the 18th. It'll be a non park weekend, so we'll be spending lots of time eating .

I'd be happy to do live updates.

We have received a few updates already this morning so let's get started, shall we?


Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by a new reporter who arrived at Disney World last night, emmebear.


They first went to Hollywood Studios...












...to ride TSM.













Then on the way back to their hotel in Downtown Disney, they stopped at the AoA Resort for their first Disney meal of the trip at...






Here's how it looked at 10:45 last night...







Next a menu pic...






emmebear said, "We both chose the Create your own Pasta. I really wanted the Indian (World of Flavors), as I saw Buttered Chicken on the menu (which was new), but they were closed at 10:45."





"For my pasta I had the Spaghetti & Alfredo sauce. I added chicken, garlic, peas, broccoli & sun-dried tomatoes. They added cheese at the end if you want it."





"It was delicious! I added crushed red pepper, some salt and pepper and it was yummy. Although I hadn't eaten since 11:00 a.m. that day. It was much better than my pasta from last October."





"Emme got the Kids Pasta and they added broccoli. Adding stuff to Kids Pasta is apparently a big no no. At Port Orleans, if I added anything extra to her pasta they were going to charge me for an adult portion!"





"Emme also got milk plus 2 sides with her Kids meal. She chose yogurt and apples."



"And the best part is that they take TIW (20% discount) and no gratuity is added. I saved $3.40 on our meal!"





"For $14.47 we got a whole bunch of food by Disney standards."







"Overall, it was a satisfying meal at AoA. I'm glad we skipped Magic Kingdom."



Yes, it looks like Emme had something else in mind other than celebrating all night at Magic Kingdom...

"Tasty and huge portion."

Yay! Emmebear update!

I had to warn her about those crowds at MK. I heard they were turning away parking and you had to park at Epcot. Also there was like a line to get in that took an hour!

Not worth it

"New way of eating lunch apparently."









"And the entire reason we are here is this...

Next we have an update from Kaitlin (KGNOLA) from her lunch yesterday at DHS'...







Menu pic...








"My favorite part!"












Our Famous Cobb Salad - with finely chopped greens, turkey breast, egg, bacon, tomatoes, crumbled bleu cheese, avocado, chives and Cobb dressing


"The cobb salad was amazing, as always!"







Crisy Phyllo Napoleon of Bleu Affine - with wild mushroom duxelles, grilled portobello, golden chanterelles, and a fig reduction

"Phyllo app was okay. I thought the blue cheese was overpowering."






Andouille-crusted Prawn over Black Diamond cheddar grits, wilted greens and ancho oil

"Prawn app was yummy but only one prawn."






Kids Appetizer - Chopped Salad






Kids Fish Sticks


"DD said they were very good! The batter was tempura-like and they weren't at all greasy!"







Description missing from update so I'm going with...

Spit-roasted American Bison over wilted locally grown winter greens, tossed in an herb-shallot vinaigrette, with roasted fingerling potatoes and a cocoa espresso barbecue sauce







Description missing again, so I'll say...

Charred-glazed Filet of Beef with a red wine reduction, topped with a cabernet and roasted shallot butter, over white truffle oil wild forest mushroom mashed potato, sauteed haricot verts and golden beets






Okay, what do you think on this one? I'll say...

Sterling Silver Pork Chop with smoked gouda and heirloom apple slaw served over potato hash with bacon, Napa cabbage, sweet peppers and a cider jus



Now for dessert...




"The grapefruit cake was delicious - served very cold, it has a refreshingly bitter flavor."







"This was supposed to be Chocolate Three Ways. We were late for a Star Wars show since the meal took long, so we didn't check. It did not seem like what was described on the menu, but there were 3 kinds of chocolate. It was alright but the orange peel flavor overpowered the chocolate flavors."

Barb, running this thread has surely made you THE expert on identifying Disney food! If there were a "Name! That! DISH!" gameshow, you would surely walk away a millionaire!

Oh man, we're eating at HBD soon and I am so torn on that grapefruit cake. On one hand, everyone loves it. On the other hand...I hate grapefruit.

Just got caught up on the most recent updates, and the big news to me is that AOA received a menu update. The lentil-crusted fish sounds really good! Hoping I can try it and report on it soon
