For dessert, Rachel headed to the Wilderness Lodge resort's...








Artist Point Cobbler with seasonal berries and house-made black raspberry ice cream.


"Yummy again! A little more berries than last time but still good. Ice cream a little too icey. We loved it."

Then last from Rachel were a couple of snack updates, the first one a cocktail update from Mexico's Margarita stand at Epcot.




Fiesta Margarita - combination of Lime, Strawberry and Mango


"So perfect! Lime was my favorite flavor."





Then after Epcot they got this snack at the Pop Century resort's...


Everything Pop




King Cupcake - A tribute to Elvis Presley, the cupcake features all of the flavors from the King’s renowned favorite sandwich.


"It is a chocolate cupcake filled with banana custard, with peanut butter icing topped with candied bacon and drizzled with chocolate. I only had a couple bites but it's so good!! The cakes a little dry but the banana stuff inside is good and the peanut butter frosting is outstanding."

Hi, I'm SwirlyGirly. I'll be a July participant. Our schedule looks like this:
July 7-11 Universal at RPR
July 11-22 Disney with a hotel hopping schedule that includes Yacht Club, Poly and Swan.

I'll be traveling with my 2 daughters. The Mr will be working as usual, so in Disney I'm always a single parent. I will be meeting up with 2 sets of friends in Universal. And in Disney with my parents and my cousin and her daughter.

We have a ton of ADRs and we stay Club Level (except of course at the Swan), we will be sending lots of pics and updates.

I'm looking forward to it! I love following the thread and excited to participate.

Let's get started with today's updates, beginning with our First Update of the Day from Wendydagny.


She and her family were at Magic Kingdom yesterday and breakfast at...







Where they tried the...




LeFou's Brew


"Kids loved the slush part but said the foam on top was disgusting."


"We kept breakfast simple this morning so we'd make rope drop at Magic Kingdom. DH slept in of course."





Then they had lunch at...






For her appetizer, Wendy got...



Tavern Fried Cheese with marinara sauce


"I got this mainly to share with the kids. They thought they were awesome. I thought they were standard."





"DS chose the...




Chicken Noodle Soup with his crackers."




"DH had the Soup of the Day..."




Beef Vegetable Soup


"Both he and DD loved this!"




"DH and I both had the Colony Salad..."




Colony Salad - Washington apples, sweet pecans and Applewood smoked cheddar, dried cranberry Craisins, and grilled chicken tossed with field greens in honey shallot vinaigrette

"This is always a hit. DH would prefer a different cheese though."





"DS had the Kids Turkey..."




Oven-roasted Turkey with mashed potatoes and green beans

"He ate the turkey and mashed potatoes but left the beans--these were canned and he is used to fresh."





"DD had the Kids flatbread..."




Barbecue Chicken and Pineapple Flatbread

"This was gross. There was way too much BBQ. She had some salad instead."




The kids had sundaes for dessert...







Wendy chose the...




Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce

"I had the toffee cake, which was yummy but not served warm this time? We ate it all anyway."



And her DH had...




Johnny Appleseed's Cake - Tavern-made white cake filled with apples and craisins, Dried Cranberries, topped with ice cream

"He was remembering a different dessert when he ordered this. He liked it but probably wouldn't get it again."




"Then on way to break with youngest I stopped at..."












Where she had a...




Caramel Frappuccino

"It was good of course. Definitely on the sweet vs. strong side, but that's barista variation I think."

Next in today were a couple of updates from Couchy.


First was of her breakfast this morning at DHS'...


Starring Rolls Cafe




Double Espresso






Wow, kudos to Couchy for going to Starring Rolls and coming out with only an apple!



Then Couchy had her lunch poolside today at the Hurricane Hanna's bar...



Seared Ahi Tuna with a green salad and olive tapenade


I couldn't find this item on any of the Hurricane Hanna menu so asked Couchy about. Apparently it is exclusive to the HH bar. She said she would get us a pic of the unpublished menu tomorrow.



Couchy also sent us this bonus pic of Stormalong Bay...




"My view from my bar stool."

Our next update was sent to us by JeannieKY.


She and Allison had breakfast this morning at the Polynesian Resort's...






Jeannie said, "Breakfast at 'Ohana. ADR close to the end of breakfast. They had run out of leis so we skipped the photo op. Seated after a 5 min. wait with a view of the castle. Food was fresh and good. I love the juice here! Allison ate all of the cinnamon raisin bread and she isn't a breakfast person! Aloha!






















And a bonus pic overlooking the beautiful Polynesian lobby...

JeannieKY was at Epcot today and sent us a lunch update from Mexico's...






A menu pic...







Jeannie said, "We both got nachos without sour cream or jalapenos and churritos for dessert. Allison got a mango Jarrito and I just had a diet coke. Nacho meat has a little kick. They are good. The churritos come with a caramel dipping sauce. A great QS lunch with a view! 2 thumbs up!"

How had I never come across this thread before? It's wonderful!!!
Even if it's making me want to play with all my ADR's again.
This thread is extra torturous for me.. I want to be in Disney right now AND I'm starving. I had a wisdom tooth taken out today and I am stuck with soup and pudding
I'm looking forward to reading more and seriously considering signing up to do Live updates on our December trip!!!

Next up is an update from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World today, keypooh90.


Their first Disney meal was at...















This is what her sister got...









"DSis with a Turkey Ciabatta with house-made chips and a Mickey crispie treat for dessert. Her drink was a coke with an orange juice for the room."


"She said "It's better than Kroger's sandwich."




This is what her mom got...





"She had a Create your own Salad with romaine, chicken, mushrooms, corn, cucumbers, olives and blue cheese. Her dessert was a Magic cookie bar."





"She said, "Deliciously filling and very fresh."




"The final picture is me with my meal. I had a Create your own Salad with romaine, chicken, garbanzo beans, peas, mushroom, carrots, cucumber, Parmesan, and Caesar dressing. My dessert was a magic cookie bar."






"The salad hit the spot and was perfect in this weather! And the magic cookie bar is heaven on earth."

Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce

"I had the toffee cake, which was yummy but not served warm this time? We ate it all anyway."





I messed up the quote but wanted to say this happened to me last May-got a cold Ooey Gooey Cake. It was good but not as great. But then I went again this May and was warm as it should be. I don't know if it was the server last year. He wasn't the best I've had.
