I wondered if anyone would notice the "Twilight Zone" pic. I'm pretty sure I've gotten a picture like that one other time, but can't remember if it was also taken at San Angel???

Then we received the first update from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World today, vikkii19.


She said, "Finally arrived at SSR for the next 3 nights. Lunch was at WPE. The place was packed as its Cars Masters Weekend, but it was worth the wait."



Wolfgang Puck Express








"Here is DH waiting for our food."







Rotisserie Turkey Club with avocado, bacon, red onion, plum tomatoes, romaine, remoulade and chips


"DH had the turkey club. He liked it, but didn't care for the avocado spread on it."







Half Rotisserie Chicken with garlic butter, rosemary and mashed potatoes


"I had the rotisserie chicken. This was huge, DH had to help me finish it."









"DH had the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake."







"I had the creme brulee. It's a fairly decent creme brulee, especially for CS food."

Now back to emmebear, who made a detour on her way to Magic Kingdom, stopping at the Polynesian Resort's...






"I'm early for dinner at Kona so to pass my time I'm having a drink."





Dirty Martini




Then it was time for dinner at...















Kona Sweet Bread and Macadamia Butter






"Macadamia butter = Epic"






"They have chopsticks! I'm right at home!"










emmebear started with this appetizer...




Pot Stickers - wok-seared pork and vegetable dumplings with creamy ginger-soy sauce



A close-up shot...







And a look inside...




"I was hoping for 'Ohana potstickers but these weren't. These are steamed and pretty tasty though. I wish they were pan seared just a few minutes longer for a more crispy texture. The seaweed salad was a little spicy. Unexpected and tasty."





For her entree, emmebear chose the...




Sesame Seared Sea Scallops with rice, wakami salad and tarragon-champagne beurre blanc









"These definitely don't compare to the scallops at Flying Fish or California Grill but for $19, it was a great portion. I could've done without the seaweed salad...it made my rice really soggy. Scallops were seared well. Great entree."



"The rice also had some butter and sesame oil on it...reminded me of my childhood."



emmebear didn't have dessert but she sent us a pic of the menu...











"Cheap dinner plus free valet! I'm keeping my car here and taking the monorail to Magic Kingdom."





"Mission complete!"



Though emmebear didn't get to do any rides because it started raining, she did take this interesting pic of the not yet opened Main Street Bakery window...




"Oh yeah. It's official."



4 June Game Points Earned + 6 Bonus Points for sign/name & menu pics, pic of emmebear, and misc. MK pics

One more update and then it's time to call it a night.


Here is cindymindy's dinner update from last night at Epcot's...






First some menu pics...









"Love the light up menus!"







"Robby started with the famous cheddar cheese soup. Of course he loved it! So creamy, so cheesy!"







Seared Scallops with English Peas, Red Onion Marmelade, Carrot Puree, Pea Tendrils, and Smoked Bacon Snow


"I opted for the scallops. I feel like this is a running theme of our trip, no?
The white on top was a bacon snow. It tasted like frothy smoke. In other words, yummmm! Once again, not as tender as Flying Fish, but still very well prepared."




"For the main course, I got the filet mignon, but opted for veggies and potatoes as my sides."






"The filet was creamy and cooked perfectly, but it couldn't live up to the steak I had at Yachtsman."






"Robby decided to go out with a bang and get the porterhouse."







"This was man meat! Look how well he did!"




"This was his favorite steak of week, even topping Yachtsman."



"Now on to dessert."












"Robby had the white chocolate cheesecake."




White Chocolate Cheesecake with Citrus Shortbread Cookie, Seasonal Berries, and Raspberry Air


"The air was tart and balanced the sweetness of the cheesecake."



"I had the blueberry ginger sorbet."




Blueberry Ginger Sorbet with Lemon Snow and Candied Ginger

"If you're thinking what I'm thinking, it doesn't look very appetizing, but it was actually very good!"




"The service really made up for our terrible service at San Angel Inn. I think they enjoy living up to being such a nice country! As other posters have noted, yes, the tables are close together. We even made fast friends with our neighbors. We generally don't mind loud, busy restaurants so this did not bother us. We ended the night with a "round" of O' Canada (our favorite!) and then Illuminations!"

Good morning everyone and Happy Father's Day to any fathers that might be reading! We have already received an update this morning. Since I'm going to be busy with family activities for most of the day, I'm going to go ahead and post this update now.


And so, our First Update of the Day was sent to us by spaceacewannabe from the...

Boardwalk Bakery





Chocolate Croissant


"Possibly better than the almond, but a lot smaller. Both are $3.19 after tax."
