Next we have a couple of updates from our Universal Studios live reporter, Hannikins.


They had lunch at Universal Studios'...





Hannah said, "We went to Mel's Diner, had a cheeseburger and a milkshake each, much better than Disney burgers we thought on this occasion."

Then for dinner, Hannah & Adam dined at the Portofino Bay Hotel's...


BiCE Ristorante



Hannah said, "Tonight we headed to Bice at the Portofino Bay Hotel but without a reservation on a Saturday we were looking at a 90 minute wait so we headed to the Thirsty Fish first for a Peroni or two."

















"Finally it was time to eat! We passed on apps and so we started with the bread."




"Two kinds of focaccia, one with olives and one without. The dips were tuna, olive oil and egg plant."




"We couldn't decide on a main so we both ordered a half portion of the two we fancied."




"Spinach tortellini, a lovely light sauce but with a rich filling."







"Pear and Gorgonzola pockets with a four cheese and sun died tomato sauce. VERY heavy and I didn't mange even a quarter of this, it was just too much and could have been in a lighter sauce."






"Gnocchi in a tomato sauce, very simple but very nice, you could tell it was fresh pasta."








"Seafood pasta, yummy with lots if seafood."




And for dessert they chose...




"Cannoli and pistachio ice cream, all nice but the ice cream was what stood out for us."

IT'S RECRUITMENT TIME AGAIN!!!

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

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 will be there Aug 31 - Sept 8 if you still need someone. It will be my first time being a live reporter but I enjoy reading the thread so much I thought it would be fun to contribute!

Now back to Disney World and the final updates from Rarity & her DSis.


She said, "We stopped for a snack in the New Fantasyland. I just had to get some Disney popcorn in a Dumbo bucket after seeing pics on the Disney Food Blog."


















"DSis had a pork shank and some LeFou's Brew from...



Gaston's Tavern























Then later Rarity said, "This is the last of our food updates. It's something of a tradition to end our trips with an ice cream on Main Street."













"I had the peanut buttery goodness that is the Plaza's All-American Sundae."




All-American Sundae - old-fashioned vanilla and chocolate ice cream with hot fudge, peanut butter drizzle, whipped cream and a cherry











"DSis had a Mickey bar...






"She had three people ask where she got her treat."

Barb, thanks for keeping this thread going! It seems to be a ton of work and I VERY much appreciate it. We're planning a December trip back to WDW and hopefully I'll be able to improve on my dining report skills by then!!

And thanks to all of the contributors - I could look at Disney food all day!

Finally made my way over to the new thread!

I'm sad to see the new look of the cheesecake brownie at BW Bakery...but as long as it still tastes the same, I guess I would be ok with that.

The lobster sandwich from BW Bakery...oh goodness, that sounds like something I would love.
