So jealous! I didn't see those chocolate displays. I ran into the festival center to grab passports for my hubby and I but never looked around. Ad I missed the free Godiva sample too? I love everything pumpkin.
So happy you tried the apple pie drink - that was one of my favorites at F&W.
I don't understand people who would waste time lining up for a concert There is no band I want to see that much! We saw Survivor while we were there. We showed up 20 minutes before it started and I saw a line so we went to get in it. The people told me they were waiting for the next show. I don't know why you would stand in line for s show when there are seas available . DH and I walked over to the seating area and there were loads of seats. I sat and held our seats which we very good while he went to get us drinks. It never filled completely and if I had wanted to, I could have got a lot closer to the front than I did.
Oh and the Chase lounge - we stopped in for the tickets for Illuminations and they did not have them (it was early). I asked them when they ran out and they said that they did not offer them every day and that the day we were there was one of the days that they did not offer any!

Sorry I missed this update. It must have been during my long work stretch.

Anyhow - for some reason we never made it into the Chase lounge, but it looks really nice. I wish I could remember why we never went up.

That apple pie drink looks really yummy. I feel like I worked so hard to get something in every country, but I still overlooked so many yummy things.

Lining up for Hanson at 11am. Hmmmm - don't think so.

The displays were very cool!

I also love everything pumpkin so I loved the chocolate!


So happy you tried the apple pie drink - that was one of my favorites at F&W.

It actually was why we went at that time I was between that time or going for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler and I was like I'm sold as soon as I heard about it!

I sat and held our seats which we very good while he went to get us drinks. It never filled completely and if I had wanted to, I could have got a lot closer to the front than I did.

I didn't understand it either. Although the show we went to was pretty packed!

Oh and the Chase lounge - we stopped in for the tickets for Illuminations and they did not have them (it was early). I asked them when they ran out and they said that they did not offer them every day and that the day we were there was one of the days that they did not offer any!
Yeah the day we went they didn't offer special seating tickets

[COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]It's okay I know the holidays are a crazy time for everyone!

It was a nice place to stop and get some soda for free!

It was one of my favorite things!

I didn't know they were so popular!

I'm with you on the coffee. Can't get the day started without being sufficiently caffeinated. I'm not a huge fan of Starbucks because I drink my coffee black and I find theirs to be a bit strong, plus they are always confused when I order just a "large black coffee" and don't use words like venti or leche.

I also agree with you about the pumpkin. The chocolate sample sounds interesting.

The chocolate sculptures are AMAZING!!! What talented artists.

As much as I don't want to be tied, I did enjoy the video. Nice job.

Although I did ROFL at the dancing!

I think they used that white chocolate display at the Beach Club as part of the Christmas decor. They are all so beautiful and full of detail.

Funny, I randomly was looking for DL TRs and ran across yours. Your mom and I are FB friends either from a PP share or the October 2011 FB group. I see lots of photos of you all, fun to read the reports! Of course I had to follow the TR here now, too. We NLT have 14 days til my DD15 and I leave for DL which is why I was looking for a TR to read

It looked good didn't taste as good! It was just a bit too sweet for me.

I like Starbucks during the summer now. I am a huge fan of the coffee frappucino or the mocha one I had on vacation. During the winter I like Bigby or Mcdonald's.

I also agree with you about the pumpkin. The chocolate sample sounds interesting.

It was good!

The chocolate sculptures are AMAZING!!! What talented artists.

It was very cool to see!

When I last left off we were saying goodbye to Epcot





And heading to our hotel for the rest of our stay which was POP! We love it here and whenever we stay at a value this is our choice! The CMS are amazing and we love the food!



We were located in the 50s and ground floor which is super close to the main building!

The last time we stayed we were also in this area.



We bummed around the resort for a bit



I love all of the colors!



One of my favorite resort bars



Just so pretty all around



We got ready and headed to the MK





We had a very important birthday dinner to go to!


We were very surprised to see the Christmas stuff up!








I love Christmas at Disney!








Nice to see the Castle without the crane!





We headed this way for dinner



We saw Gaston but I wasn't very impressed with him or the pictures we got He was very funny with the little kids though!

The must have shot of construction

Finally it was time for dinner



We had been watching the dining boards for weeks trying to get this ADR! As a huge BAB fan we had to eat at the castle for my bday!

The desserts



I started off with the Seasonal Salad Trio

Three Individual Bowls of:
Roasted Beet, Gold Raisin and Orange Salad
Green Been, Tomato and Roasted Shallot Salad
Watermelon, Radish, and Mint salad




It was very good!

While mom played it safe and went with the Garden Salad - with Champagne Vinaigrette




During our appetizers the master of ceremonies arrived



For our entrees I chose to try something new

Pan-seared Salmon on Leek Fondue - served with creamy saffron-crushed potatoes



It wasn't bad but not the best thing I have ever tasted


Mom went with her favorite the Grilled Strip Steak - with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites

It wasn't as good as the first time she had it either.

When dessert came out I was surprised with a candle in my cream puff!



Mom tried the Chocolate Cream Puff - filled with chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream




For some reason this time wasn't nearly as good or as magical as the first time we went. We will be going back in May since dad hasn't been but we probably won't be going back for a bit. It's definitely a place everyone needs to see once but after that it sort of loses the magic.

We made our way out of the castle to find our next adventure




Next up!
Ariel
Castle Lighting
Illuminations!

We love Pop as well - great layout, great food choices, great bus service. And when you're there, you KNOW you're at WDW!

Sorry BOG was disappointing. We had dinner there over Christmas (somehow snagged an ADR the week before) and enjoyed it, but have definitely had better food elsewhere. Our server was outstanding, though, and you could tell she loved her restaurant. I think I'll stick with the counter service there, and choose other options for table service.
