I'm glad to see the newly re-opened Boardwalk Bakery! It was so small and cramped before. With so many choices, it will still be hard to decide what to get!

Barb: Once again, all of your hard work and efforts are appreciated by so many people, me included! Thank you for all you do to keep us Disney Dining addicts happy!

And Amanda's offer reminded me that it's probably time to bring out the cheerleaders because...


IT'S RECRUITMENT TIME AGAIN!!!

So here are the dates which we could still use more live reporters:

May 20 - 24 - 1 more reporter needed

May 28 - 31 - 1 more reporter needed

June 14 - 19 - 1 more reporter needed

June 20 - 24 - 2 more reporters needed

June 29 - July 8 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

July 9 - 13 - 1 more reporter needed

July 14 - 25 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

July 26 - 30 - We have no volunteers yet for these dates.

July 31 - Aug. 7 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

Aug. 25 - 28 - 1 more reporter needed

Aug. 29 - Sept. 2 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed


So if you are planning a trip to either Disney World or Disneyland during any of these dates, please consider doing some live reporting.

We have received a couple of updates from Hannikins today, who is now reporting live from Universal Studios.


This first snack update was from IOA's...


Wizarding World of Harry Potter













Hannah said, "We had early entry to Harry potter this morning so with the rides out of the way we made our way over to the butterbeer cart."






"We grabbed one of each...





"It tasted of butterscotch and licorice. I preferred the frozen version since I didn't think it tasted as nice with fizz."

Next Hannikins sent us an update from their dinner last night at City Walk's...


Bubba Gump's



She said, "Last night we headed to Bubba Gump's, a favourite from our trip to San Francisco."


"We started with cocktails, Adam had a lava flow...








"And I had a margarita...








"I had the fish and chips, very yummy white fish...









"And Adam had a shrimp sampler which had a mix from the main menu. Our favourite was the coconut shrimp."...







"We shared a Key lime pie for dessert, it was one of the nicer ones we've had!" ...

Now back to Disney World and Rumpletinker's update from Downtown Disney's...














She said, "We shared the Mac 'n Cheese...





"Unimpressed! Came out cold and tasted reheated."




"For dessert, we had creme brulee...





"This was average. It wasn't cold enough, unlike the pasta."

oh so sad to hear that Rumpletinker didn't have a great meal at WPE! That is one of our fav meals and we've never had a bad bite there.

No Disney World trips in your near future, but how about Disneyland?
Awwww, thanks Barb! We had such an awesome time being live reporters!

I don't have any plans for Disneyland coming up, but we will definitely be going to Aulani next year. We will be there in the beginning of June 2014 for 8 nights of Hawaiian Disney paradise! I'm taking my parents with us.... We'll be booking our flights in a couple of months. First class, baby!!! Whoo-hooo!!!

If Barb still has this thread going then, I will definitely be a live reporter for Aulani! Fingers crossed!

Let's begin the day with some updates sent to us last night, starting with the final update from a reporter who's trip ended yesterday, Rumpletinker.

From Downtown Disney's...


Earl of Sandwich




The Original 1762 - Roast beef, sharp cheddar cheese & horseradish sauce


She said, "This is my traditional "Goodbye, Disney Sandwich. It's always delicious."




"Thanks for letting me do live reports. It was fun!"
