Thanks!

Since there have been many volunteers the last couple of days, I thought I should post an updated list of what dates we still need.

IT'S RECRUITMENT TIME AGAIN!!!

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

May 21 - 30 - 1 more reporter needed

June 14 - 19 - 1 more reporter needed

June 20 - 24 - 2 more reporters needed

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

July 9 - 13 - 1 more reporter needed

July 14 - 25 - 2 more reporters needed

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

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

Aug. 4 - Aug. 7 - 1 more reporter needed

Aug. 26 - Sept. 2 - 1 more reporter 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.

I'm not sure how many pictures I can send, but I'll be there May 15th - 24th. I probably won't be able to do it every day, but if that works for you just let me know

I have one more update which was sent to us last night, this one from DeeDee (buzz1121).


She said, "Our last dinner at WDW on this trip was another repeat location...









































"The chicken and steak were the winners in regards to the best tasting meat."









Kids Meal




And the desserts...









"The bread pudding was amazing once again!"



"So much has been said about this very popular dining location that I will just say that this time our service was a little off and as we were seated directly under a speaker it was difficult to communicate with each other during the meal."

Hi jeniffer! We already have several reporters there during the first part of your trip, so if you would like to concentrate your efforts on the last few days (May 21 - 24) that would be great. You are welcome to send updates on the other days if you would like to, but don't sweat it if you are only able to send a few or skip some days altogether. How does that sound?

We have received our First Update of the Day from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World yesterday, diskam.


Their first day was spent at Hollywood Studios and first snack was from the...


Writer's Stop






"After a rough morning of traveling, Mals took a break at the Writer's Stop."




"Supper last night was at...


Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater





"Mals had the kid's hot dog. This came with a fruit cup or sundae for dessert, but the cookie must have filled her up because she turned them both down."








"I had the shrimp pasta with no tomatoes. It had a ton of shrimp!"



4 April Game Points Earned + 2 Bonus Points for pic of Mals and First Update of the Day

Rarity's Total April/May Game Points Earned = 76
Not too shabby for 4 days. Thanks again, Barb, for continuing the thread and for letting my sister and I participate. It was an honor to play along!

Glad to see folks are enjoying the Dumbo bucket. Dumbo was one of my favorite movies as a kid (I used to walk around with my nose in the air like the mean elephants ). I thought it was decently priced at $12. Just so everyone knows, I also saw it available at popcorn carts in HS. The CM will ask if you want them to assemble it and put your popcorn inside, or if you want to just keep it in its plastic bag. I'm glad I had them assemble it for me since it took two people to stick the ears in

Dumbo's currently sitting on my desk at work, now housing my selection of candy. Everyone who's come by has gotten a kick out of seeing him.

We received a couple of updates today from Jessica (FancyNancy).


The first one was from their lunch today at DHS'...


Starring Rolls Cafe



She said, "April's birthday is today so we had to come for some lunch and cupcakes!"






"April had a ham sandwich, chips, iced tea, and a double chocolate muffin."








"I had a turkey sandwich, chips, iced tea, and a red velvet cupcake."









"Mom had turkey, chips, and a chocolate peanut butter cupcake."





And speaking of the birthday girl, here is April in their Royal Guest room at POR...





Jessica said, "We were upgraded from a standard room at check in to a river view Royal Guest room."




5 April Game Points Earned + 1 Bonus Point for pic of the birthday girl

Tonight we received the first update from a new reporter, auntfrannie.


She said, "Hi Barb! Here is my first live update! I arrived today at Coronado Springs. Dinner tonight was at ...


Yachtsman Steakhouse



"I started with something I've not seen on any Disney drink menu....





...the Truffle Olive Martini!"





"Rather than order an entree, I ordered three appetizers:"





"The Caesar salad was a light start to the meal. The housemade dressing was perfect and wasn't too much on the salad. The bottom of the salad had thin slices of coppa secca ham and added a nice twist to a classic Caesar."







"Next was the Diver Oak Scallops and Truffle Mac & Cheese...






"The scallops were perfect and just about melted in my mouth."






"The mac & cheese was very rich but incredibly wonderful!"



"This was an enjoyable meal even though I didn't order an entree. I also got a pot of the french press coffee. So smooth! No dessert at Yachtsman because I hiked over to the Boardwalk Bakery. I'll send that in a separate email."

Hi Barb

I got your pm and am beyond excited for our trip and to send some live updates! I already informed my fiancé that he has to wait for me to snap some pics before he can eat, and he agreed, which means he must be excited too because he does not play around when it comes to his food!

We are eating at a lot of the more popular places: O'hana, Kona, CRT, Chef Mickeys, Crystal Palace (DD 2nd birthday breakfast!!),Via Napoli, H&V, Sci Fi, Y&Y, Le Cellier, Boma. Not too mention all the snacks and drinks I have on my list! And 6 days into our trip (the 27th) we are getting married and having a small private cocktail hour, dinner and wedding cake at BiCE! I can't wait!

Thank you again for keeping this thread going, it's so fun and really helps pass the non Disney time!
