Everything looks so delicious. I am rearranging my ADRs AGAIN!! I think I am set and then see another review here and change my mind....

Just when I think Emme can't get any cuter the pics of her at the dance recital were posted! She is just the most precious little thing.

Thank you again, Barb for all your hard work in keeping this thread going.

Are the July people supposed to have gotten a PM too or is it just the June reporters for now?

Took most of the night off, so now I'm really behind. Let's see how many updates I can get posted before I fall asleep at the keyboard.


First up is an update from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World late last night, Paula (smile4stamps).




She began her trip with a meal worth 10 points, lunch at...







The lounge waiting area...












"Wavy ceiling"...











































To start, Paula chose...




The Wave Cobb Salad with Locally-sourced Greens and Tomatoes, Naturally Raised Eggs, Bacon Florida Avocados, Midnight Moon Cheese and Lime-Chili Vinaigrette (on the side)


"The salad was smaller than I expected. Good in a way as I have a lot of food coming up today but kinda sad for the price. The bacon on it was delicious though!"



And for her entree, she had the...




Seasonal Soup and Sandwich with Hand-carved Roast Turkey on a Foccacia Round


"The soup is a mushroom onion. Very similar to a French onion. The turkey sandwich is really good. A little too much mayo but it has a cherry jam that is delightful!"




Then Paula sent us some bonus pics of the bakery case at the Contempo Cafe...










"I went to see if they had a return of the peanut butter cupcake but sadly they have not."




10 April Game Points Earned + 7 Bonus Points for sign, menu, misc. restaurant pics, display case pics, and pic of Paula

Next we received an update from Jen (jenifferf00), who I mistakenly thought had sent us her final update yesterday.

But this is actually her final update from...

Roaring Fork











Jen said, "Well we're home and this is my last update. We had some quick serve credits left so we decided to head to Roaring Fork and pick up some sandwiches for later. We chose the turkey and the ham. They were both decent even hours later. And the house made chips... YUM! They must have been even better fresh."

Next we have 1coolnini's update from her lunch today at Epcot's...








"This is where we had lunch today. I know....I know ...we just had Mexican food yesterday and once again I forgot my number one rule of dining "never eat Mexican food outside of Southern California", but since we were kind of in Mexico I thought we would give it a shot. We usually eat Mexican food once a week and usually at this point in any vacation we are desperate."



"Here's their menu...






"I had the chicken tacos...







"1coolpapa had the steak tacos...







"And here's our order of chips and guacamole...










"How did that margarita get in the photo?"




"These are churritos (mini-churros) with caramel sauce. Don't order these. We took one bite and threw them away."








"For dessert I had a lime Popsicle. It was cold and sweet."







"Actually this place was pretty good. Tacos were more like "street tacos". Three small, but nice and soft corn tortillas filled with flavorful meat. The guacamole was pretty good too. Probably not freshly made but still decent. The chips weren't as good as we get at home but were a great vehicle to get the guacamole from the plate to our mouth. We would return."

Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater





The "soon-to-be married", Nicole & Jeff







Nicole said, "Last night we had dinner at Sci Fi. My family was late coming in so we had to wait a bit for our table but It was a lot of fun and Ava loved the restaurant!"














"I had the Magical Star cocktail, it was perfectly fruity for me!"






"Jeff and I shared the onion rings with horseradish sauce, we loved them!"








"My brothers had Oreo shakes and the honey chipotle wings and I tried some and they were both great too!"











"For dinner I had the Reuben with cucumber salad, it was very good and I loved the salad!"





"Jeff had a bacon burger with cheddar cheese and onions and mushrooms with fries, he thought it as very good!"





"I had a bite and the burger was really juicy!"

"Then we went here for a drink...







Chris had one of these only with vodka instead of gin.







"Oh yeah."





Then it was on to...


La Cava de Tequila







"Next up. The Ditch and margarita, an avocado one. It was interesting."

Good morning everyone! As you can see I only got about half of the 20 or so updates posted which I received yesterday. I've got some activities going on at church today so probably won't get to the rest of these (plus those which come in today, which there has already been 3 ) until later. However, the last update which I received last night had such a wonderful ending that I'm going to break my usual rule of posting updates in the order received and share this one with you this morning.


Last night Paula (smile4stamps) had dinner at the Grand Floridian Resort's...






First some menu pics...















Paula said, "Sorry they are so dark...I didn't want to use flash. But I succumbed to the flash anyways for my food."




Paula started with a wine flight...










Sourdough bread and butter with sea salt...












For her appetizer she chose the...




Peach Salad with Local Peaches, Jones "Bow Tie" Tiny Lettuces, Roasted Cashews, Flore Nelle Blue Cheese, Dried Apricots, and White Peach Vinaigrette


"It was very nice. Subtle dressing, fresh peaches, cashews and blue cheese balanced it all out."




Then for her entree, Paula had...




House-made Fettuccine "Scampi" with Maine Lobster and Wild Sustainable Shrimp with Savoy Spinach, Organic Heirloom Tomatoes and Lemon-Chardonnay-Garlic Cream




And finally, her dessert!...




Narcoossee's Signature Dessert - Almond-crusted Cheesecake with lambert cherry sauce (decorated for Paula's birthday, which is in 3 weeks).


Paula said, "It's so yummy!! I was told by Chef Eddie that this was the best dessert on GF property 4 years ago. I think he was right!!"


Now it was about this time that Paula was "Pixie Dusted" in a big way.


Here is the text I received from Paula this morning...


"I have the most amazing addendum to my dinner last night. (I so wanted to text you about it but it was after 11 pm). Anyways, as I was sitting eating my fabulous dessert (which was complements of the restaurant), the server comes up and says the couple I was talking to while waiting for my entree paid for my entire dinner. I was like are you serious?!?! She said yes, they paid for everything! I was so shocked, amazed and thankful for their generosity. I truly could not believe it. So I was bestowed Pixie Dust by this couple who I guess wanted to do something nice for me because I was wearing the Birthday Button. I did explain that my Birthday was in 3 weeks but I guess that didn't matter! They left while I was only part way through my entree so I wasn't even able to thank them. So if they are reading this. I say thank you so very much! The gesture brought tears to my eyes from their generosity."


And with that awesome, heart-warming story I will leave you...until later today!
