Next I received this surprise update from the West Coast Disney Resort.


nicole0992 said, "I took the kids to Disneyland for a few hours after school on Thursday and took pics of our dinner at the Grand Californian Hotel's..."






"White Water Snacks is the Quick Service location at Disney's Grand Californian. My kids love to eat here to get their Disney pizza fix. It's the same pizza that's served at Pizzafari and Pizza Planet."

































"My daughters both had the pizza/side salad meals. These salads are huge and so much better than the pre-dressed Caesars you get at WDW!"











"My son had the chicken nuggets/fries kids meal."







"I just had the Angus 1/3 lb. burger. It was yummy."








"This is a great place to eat and unwind. You pay and they bring your food to you."

It's nice to see a familiar sight from DL! Still haven't eaten there yet, but apparently the nachos are awesome.

Thank you so much for keeping this going, Barb! By the way, I just made a small announcement in my DR. Long story short: do you have room for another reporter during Fourth of July weekend? Our dining plans might not be particularly interesting, so I would only send in updates that seem worthwhile.

Now back to Disney World and Goofyluver's lunch update from DHS'...






The Tune-in Lounge bar...













"We got a TV table! This place was a madhouse!"








"Uncle R and I, and our son and brother split two sampler platters!"



A Sampling of Mom's Favorite Recipes - Crispy-fried Chicken, Fork Tender Pot Roast, and Traditional Meatloaf with all the fixings

"This worked out perfectly for Uncle R and I because she loves fried chicken and I hate it. But I stole her meatloaf. We all loooooved this. And it was perfect to split."




"The boys split a brownie sundae."




Dad's Brownie Sundae - Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream, Hot Fudge, and Caramel topping


"They loved it but couldn't finish."




"We split an apple crisp."



Apple Cobbler a la mode

"We also couldn't finish. Uncle R was surprised when all the crisp part disappeared. Don't know how that happened."




"We loved the meal so much I asked for recipes. They gave us tons! (Chicken, gravy, pot roast, meatloaf)."











"We loved this place and can't wait to return. Uncle R says the fried chicken alone is worth it."

Yes, absolutely!!! Send as many updates as you like, I'm sure they will all be greatly appreciated. And don't forget the CL food, I don't think we've had any from the Contemporary yet.

Thank you so much! Contributing to this thread again will be so much fun. Even if our meals aren't very interesting, I'll definitely send over some CL food pics (since we're tentatively having dinner in the lounge on the 4th - couldn't get a dinner reservation anywhere else on the monorail line. )

Next in was an update from spaceacewannabe, who had dinner tonight at Epcot's...










Red Curry Vegetable and Noodle Bowl with Gardein (Vegan) Chick'n Breast

"This was VERY spicy. The woman across from me had this but subbed real chicken, and I overhead her tell her husband that it was spicy. Btw, I enjoy spicy. This was quite strong."






"Oops, the five sodas I drank due to the spice may have contributed to my inability to finish.
I could only get through about half."

I always leave this thread starving and wanting to make more ADRs!


Sorry I haven't been commenting. My dad had to get emergency surgery and wound up in intensive care for about a week. W have him in a rehab facility ow because he hasn't been able to walk, so I had to let my food thread addiction slide a little. Luckily, he is doing better and I'm gearing up for our August trip!

I've heard from Rachel and she said the more the merrier, so it's a "go" for your entire trip. I'll add you to the August list and send you a PM in late July with our info for sending your updates. Thanks again for volunteering!

And speaking of bakery treats, spaceacewannabe sent us an update from Epcot's French bakery...


Boulangerie Patisserie




Duo Au Chocolate - white and dark chocolate mousse cake

"This was prettier before I carried it back to the room."




An inside look...





"I am not usually a chocolate dessert person, but this one caught my eye (and it looked like it would survive the trip back to the hotel). It has white and chocolate mousse, plus the cake and a glob of a dark chocolate something on top."






"Chocolate and Almond Croissant. In the spirit of vacation, I didn't save this for the morning even though I'd already eaten the chocolate cake. I'm glad I didn't wait: this was so fresh and just about perfect."
