    Welcome everyone to our new Live Update thread! :welcome:

    I say our thread, because this belongs to everyone who chooses to participate. This thread is for those of you that are willing and able to do the live updates during your trips to Disney World. And this thread is also for those who are unable to do updates, but love to read, comment on, and discuss them. In other words, if you are reading this introduction, then I consider you a part-owner of this thread. :thumbsup2

    It is my hope that this thread serves two purposes. The first is to be the home of all the "Live from Disney World" updates that so very many of you have generously offered to do for us. We are very lucky to have so many great DISers who are willing to take a little of their vacation time to do these updates. Needless to say, without you we would have no "Live Update" thread. I really want you to have fun with this, so whatever I can do to make it an easy and enjoyable experience, just let me know. ;) And for those of you who are new to this idea of "live updates", it means that you take pictures with your phone and then either text them to me or email them to me (like Alice BlueBonnet, our current live reporter from Canada). I can also work with pictures taken with your regular camera, if you have a way to email them to me. So in other words, whatever works best for you, works for me! :thumbsup2 Also, I would like to invite anyone to check-in here during their Disney trips, whether it's just to say hi, share some news, or directly post a picture. Any live updates are welcome here, not just those that are posted by me. As for the content of the live updates which are sent to me, I leave both that and the number of updates entirely up to the live reporters. Those of you who have either started a Dining Report prior to your trip or plan to do one upon your return home, may just want to use the live updates as a way of promoting your upcoming Dining Reports. Or perhaps there are things that are more time sensitive (for instance, F & W Fest food or pics of new menus) that you would like to share right away, rather than waiting to include them in your Dining Report. But for those of you who are either unsure or have no desire to do a full Dining Report, then doing the live updates could be an easy way of actively participating in the Dining Review Forum. So in other words, your updates can be occasional snippets (preview pics for your DR) with a short description, a full review of a meal w/ pics, or anything in between. Whatever you send my way, I will post here for all to enjoy! :thumbsup2

    And that brings me to the second purpose which I would like this new thread to serve.

    Over a month ago, Denise made this comment on my Dining Report thread and it got me to thinking. :scratchin I would like for this thread to be not only a place to see "fresh" food porn (so to speak ;)), but also to be a place for anyone to post questions, get advice, share good news or bad, or discuss anything Disney related. So on this thread... hijacking is not only allowed, it is encouraged! :thumbsup2

    Now I'm going to reserve the next post for my List, and a few more after that in order to incorporate a few of the updates which were sent to us by our former Live Reporters (emmysmommy, GoofySon'sMom, Tracerr00, and BlovesC). Without them, I could not have gotten this "live update" thing going. Thanks so much, Ladies! :goodvibes

    Oh, and I also plan to copy and transfer over the updates which Ginamarie and Alice BlueBonnet have done for us recently. They are doing an awesome job of live reporting and I don't want their great work to be left behind to die a slow death with my "Completed" Dining Report. :lmao:

    Okay, I'm launching this thing but I need your help to make it fly! :goodvibes

    The following is a list that I have compiled of DISers who frequent the Dining Review Board and have either recently been to Disney World or will soon be going there. I'm sure I have missed some people, and for that I apologize. I certainly do not want to exclude anyone, so please don't hesitate to let me know your trip information so that I can add it to the list. Also if you start a Pre-Trip Report or Pre-Dining Report prior to your trip, please let me know so I can add the link. Same thing goes for DR's or TR's started after you return home. With your help I will attempt to keep this list as current and accurate as possible. Oh, and in case you were wondering, I will no longer update this list on my Dining Report and I'll be changing over the link in my signature soon.


    AUGUST

    iloveeeyore & MainStreetFireman and family have returned from their trip to WDW and have started their Dining Report. iloveeeyore's DR.

    mamaboogie - Shari, Simon and daughters Sarah and Kate have returned from their 3 week vacation at Disney World. Shari has started her DR!

    DonaldDoleWhip DDW has completed another fantastic Dining Report from his August Trip, so be sure to check it out if you haven't already. DDW's DR

    The very first live from Disney World update that I received was from a very special lady, who is pretty well-known around these parts. ;)


    [​IMG]

    Brenda (aka emmysmommy)



    In this picture, Brenda is holding the TO DO" List which I composed for her prior to her trip to Disney World last month. Brenda, being the gracious person that she is, decided to humor my craziness and put forth her best efforts to complete each of the 18 tasks on her list. It is still unknown just how many of these were completed, but you can follow her progress on both her current Trip Report and Dining Report.

    We do however know that she successfully completed the first item of her list - 1) Take lots of pics at any DISmeets you have with DDW, GoofySon’s Mom, PrincessBetsy, or anyone else. Actually she completed this task in a "BIG" way, meeting 9 DISers during her 12 night trip! :worship: In fact if I am the "Queen of Lists" (thanks, Linda! :) ), then Brenda is the "Queen of DIS meets".

    Let's see, if I remember correctly, the next picture to be sent to me by Brenda was from her first DIS meet with DonaldDoleWhip...



    [​IMG]

    Yep, it's a headless DonaldDoleWhip!
    (Doesn't Brenda know that I like my prawns headless, but my DDWs to be head-on??? :lmao: )



    Next came another teaser pic…


    [​IMG]



    And then finally the face of Mr. DonaldDoleWhip was revealed…


    [​IMG]


    Now I’m sure that you are probably already following along with DDW’s current Dining Report, but just in case you aren’t …get yourself over there now! :thumbsup2 Here’s the LINK.



    After getting caught in a downpour while riding Splash Mountain together, they met up with PrincessBetsy, who is currently working at Magic Kingdom through the Disney College Program.



    [​IMG]


    Here's a link to Betsy's ongoing DCP Dining Review.​




    Then on that same evening, Brenda (still with DDW) bumped into another DISer, Disneyfreak616



    [​IMG]



    To read all about this evening, check out this LINK to Brenda’s TR.​




    That’s three, but Brenda still met 6 more DISers during her trip. Four of these she revealed during her live updates to me.




    [​IMG]

    Brenda with wilmabride (Joh)

    Here is a LINK to the Index Page for the installments of Joh's Trip Report.



    [​IMG]

    Brenda with a newly-married, Pinkgirl (Marie)




    [​IMG]

    Brenda with Joh, GoofySon’sMom (Vicki), and Tracerr00 (Tracy)



    Their very fun DIS meet has already been revealed in both Vicki’s and Tracy’s Dining Reports, so check these out to hear more about it and see lots more pics! :thumbsup2



    Then DISer #8 was recently revealed in DisneyMomFanatic’s (Karla) current DR…



    [​IMG]

    Brenda, Karla, and a photobomber! :lmao:


    See Karla’s Dining Report to hear more about this meet.​




    So if I have counted correctly, that makes 8 DISers that have been revealed to us so far. Who will #9 be??? Stay tuned to Brenda’s Trip Report and Dining Report to find out the answer. ;)

    So after finding out how fun it was to receive Brenda’s “live” updates from Disney World and seeing how well they were received when I shared them here, I then contacted two more of our Disney Dining Reporters who traveled to Disney World at the end of August.


    [​IMG]

    GoofySon’sMom (Vicki) and Tracerr00 (Tracy)​


    When I sent each of these wonderful ladies a PM asking them if they might be willing to do live updates during their trips, they both answered my (probably rather odd) request with an enthusiastic, “YES!” :thumbsup2




    And so here are a few of the live updates I received from Vicki…





    What do when your room isn't yet ready...


    [​IMG]

    Strawberry Margarita from the CSR Pool Bar




    This just in from GoofySon'sMom, who is having lunch at the
    Hollywood Brown Derby...​




    [​IMG]

    Margarita Flight at Hollywood Brown Derby
    (This one's for you, Master Linda :thumbsup2 )


    Sorry the above pic is a little blurry. Just imagine that you have already had one of these flights when viewing this picture. :lmao:



    Oh, and being the good DISer that she is, GoofySon'sMom also sent a pic of the menu description of her margarita flight :thumbsup2 ...


    [​IMG]







    And this from GoofySon'sMom, reporting live from her lunch at Yak & Yeti...


    "No margarita today...sake instead with ahi tuna" ;)


    [​IMG]

    Yak & Yeti's Seared Ahi Tuna Appetizer and Sake





    Mom and Dad had a surprise waiting for their Goofy Son at their dinner tonight at California Grill...



    [​IMG]

    Marble Cake with Fudge Mousse Filling
    (just in case you were wondering ;) )




    Reporting "Live" from her dinner tonight at Narcoossee's...



    [​IMG]

    Vicki's (GoofySon'sMom) Agave Margarita :thumbsup2





    Vicki (GoofySon'sMom) & family had dinner tonight at Tokyo Dining and guess what delicious cocktail she had???....


    [​IMG]
    Sake-rita (Japanese version of a margarita)
    I had to look this one up since I'd never heard of it and so here is the description I found,
    Sake-Rita - Sake, Grand Marnier, orange curacao and lime juice


    Oh, and Vicki asked me to let Linda know that this was possibly the best margarita so far! :thumbsup2






    At her dinner at 'Ohana tonight, Vicki (GoofySon'sMom) did not get a margarita. Nor did she get a Lapu Lapu.




    Here is the delicious cocktail that Vicki chose...


    [​IMG]

    Pineapple Upside-Down Martini
    SKYY Infusions Pineapple Vodka, Frangelico, Piña Colada Mix, and freshly squeezed Lemon Juice


    Vicki said this was amazing! :thumbsup2







    And here are a couple of Tracy’s live updates…


    From Tracy (Tracerr00)...


    "DD told me she wanted a turkey leg and I really thought she was joking. She was not! Not my cup of tea but she loved it!"



    [​IMG]

    Eilee and a Big 'Ole Turkey Leg




    Tracy and Eilee have arrived at the Boardwalk...



    [​IMG]

    Ahhh...the Boardwalk, my favorite resort! :cloud9:



    And I'm happy to report that...THEY LOVE IT!!! :cool1:



    Please see Vicki’s and Tracy’s Dining Reports to hear more about their trips.

    Once Tracy and then Vicki returned home, there was then a lull of nearly week in the “live reporting” action. No one was volunteering to do them and I feared that the idea might be “dead in the water”. I then sent out an “ SOS” to another awesome Disney Dining Reporter…



    [​IMG]
    BlovesC (Becky)



    Becky came to our rescue and sent these live updates during her long weekend trip earlier this month.




    This just in from Becky (BlovesC), who checked into the Beach Club this morning...


    "Guess where we are?"

    [​IMG]

    This is the floor of Beaches & Cream! :cool1:



    Followed shortly thereafter by this delicious-looking text...​



    [​IMG]

    This is none other than the No Way Jose...one of my favorite Disney Desserts!!! :thumbsup2






    And another update from our Live Reporter, Becky...


    "Saving this to be my back-up dinner if Cape May is a bust again!" ;)


    [​IMG]

    Coffee Mocha Cupcake from the Boardwalk Bakery


    "Also found these guys in the Beach Club Marketplace. Didn't buy any, but I know they have fans mourning their removal from Cape May.
    Six to a package...couldn't find a price though!"



    [​IMG]

    Oreo BonBons (previously served dessert at Cape May Buffet Dinner)


    ADDED NOTE FROM jabead: I myself have never tried these, as I've never been to Cape May for dinner.
    So I wanted to see just what these looked like, outside of the package.



    [​IMG]

    I'd have to say that these look pretty good, but not as good as Becky's Boardwalk cupcake. :thumbsup2







    In case you were wondering where Becky and Charlie had lunch today (after deciding not to have lunch again at Beaches & Cream), here is the answer...


    [​IMG]

    Delicious Turkey, Brie & Cranberry Sandwich with a side of Cous Cous from the Beach Club Marketplace :thumbsup2






    Becky and Charlie had dinner tonight at the Flying Fish Cafe...



    "Here is one of our Flying Fish entrees!
    Great meal, but I'm pretty sure our server must have moved over from 50's Prime Time Cafe."




    [​IMG]

    The Flying Fish Signature Char-crusted New York Strip Steak with a classic sauce foyot
    Served with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, Haricot Vert (thin green beans), and Young Carrots






    Breakfast today for Becky and Charlie was at Kouzzina...



    "Our breakfast made Kouzzina a strong rival to Kona Cafe!"



    [​IMG]

    Steel Cut Cinnamon Oatmeal - with Bananas, walnuts, and Honey-drizzle





    This just in from Becky & Charlie, reporting live from their lunch at Sanaa.


    Where Becky had this...



    [​IMG]

    Mango-glazed Tandoori Chicken Breast - served with arugula, cucumber, radish, mango and masala-spiced pistachios



    And for dessert..​



    "By request, a big cup of Chai cream! Saved me from ordering the trio when this was all I wanted!"


    [​IMG]



    Here is Becky's COMPLETED Dining Report, if you'd like to read more about her trip. :thumbsup2

    Next came Ginamarie & family, who were at Disney World from 9/16 - 9/29. Ginamarie volunteered to be a live reporter for us and did a fantastic job, with two weeks of delicious updates! :thumbsup2


    Here is her first live update from 9/16...



    Ginamarie and family dined tonight at the Cape May Clam Bake Buffet at the Beach Club Resort,
    where Ginamarie's dinner plate looked like this...


    [​IMG]

    Starting from the crab legs at the top of the plate, there is a regular roll, corn bread with Mac & Cheese underneath,
    Gnocchi with beef and peas (which she said was phenomenal! :thumbsup2), and Fried shrimp.


    Then her dessert plate looked like this...


    [​IMG]

    Strawberry shortcake, Flourless chocolate cake, and a Chocolate Chip Cookie


    Ginamarie said the food was great! :thumbsup2
    In fact it was so good that the baby started eating the tablecloth when the food was all gone! :lmao:

    Gnocchetti
    Cavatelli pasta, sweet sausage ragu, a light tomato sauce, and topped with pecorino cheese


    Ginamarie said, "Sister had this and called it her new favorite dish."




    [​IMG]

    Polenta Valsugana -Traditional Northern Italian creamy polenta and melted fontina
    Served with braised short ribs, meatballs, sweet and piccanti pork sausages



    Ginamarie said, "They serve the meat and polenta separately and then you mix it together in your own plate.
    The polenta was perfect and creamy and the meat was the best accompaniment with their sweet and fresh tomato sauce."






    And for dessert...



    [​IMG]

    Torta Di Nocciole "Cortemilia"
    Hazelnut polenta cake, nutella, and sweet cream cheese



    Ginamarie said, "This was really unusual. The cake is kind of dry, but good! You can definitely get the hazelnut and nutella taste and the nutella creamy top added a light texture to even it out. Even the chocolate swirl on top had a hazelnut flavor."

    'OHANA

    'Ohana Welcome Bread (Pineapple-Coconut Bread)




    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Honey Coriander Chicken Wings and Pork fried dumplings (plus an anxious baby hand ;) )


    Ginamarie said, "We also had noodles, mixed veggies, and skewers, but the camera was off taking pictures of the kids. The skewers were chicken (delicious and better/more moist and flavorful than I remembered), Asian Barbecued pork (good and a little spicy), sirloin steak (so good!, I would have eaten more but was stuffed), and spicy peel-n-eat shrimp (wonderful, I loved the spicy kick in these which was enough to add some heat without making it too spicy for the kids)"



    And then of course, for dessert was...


    [​IMG]

    The Famous 'Ohana Bread Pudding served a la mode with Bananas and Caramel Sauce

    It's snack time for Ginamarie & family back at their resort, Port Orleans French Quarter...



    [​IMG]

    Beignets from Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory


    Ginamarie said, "Love them! Hot, crispy and moist in the middle...perfection!" :cloud9:







    Ginamarie & family had dinner at the Polynesian Resort again tonight, but this time they dined at...



    Kona Cafe


    Here is the menu they were given (which is different than any of the current online menus)...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    Togarashi Spiced Ahi Tuna
    Served with Tempura Fried Vegetable Maki Roll and Red Wine Reduction



    Ginamarie said, "Hubby liked his tuna, but said the vegetable rolls were the best thing on the plate."





    [​IMG]

    Kona Coffee-rubbed Pork Chop
    Grilled and served with Wild Mushrooms and Bacon-Potato Gratin, and Seasonal Vegetables (Corn)




    Ginamarie said, "I got the coffee encrusted pork...it was ok. The crust tasted more like pepper than coffee. The corn was good, but the potato casserole that sounded so good on the menu was a disappointment. It looked grey and tasted bland. The whole dish needed something bright and acidic."




    [​IMG]

    Kid's Ravioli


    Ginamarie said, "This was a tiny portion. The six year old didn't care for it, but the baby loved it. Baby also loved the chicken noodle soup, which I didn't photograph. Other son got the hot dog, which came with no side, just a fruit cup appetizer and ketchup. It was weird. :confused3



    And for dessert...


    [​IMG]

    Kilauea Torte
    An explosion of warm liquid Chocolate inside Chocolate Cookie Volcano



    Ginamarie said, "This was good, but the molten center was overcooked and solid instead of liquid."




    [​IMG]

    Pineapple Upside Down Cake
    with Lemongrass and Caramel Sauces



    Ginamarie said, "Hubby ate every morsel!" :thumbsup2

    Kid's Yogurt Parfait


    Ginamarie said, "Daughter loved it!" :thumbsup2


    Ginamarie's final thoughts, "Kona seemed a little off tonight. I'm hoping it was a fluke." :worried:

    An update from 9/23


    Ginamarie & family were at Animal Kingdom and had lunch at...



    Restaurantosaurus



    [​IMG]

    Chicken Breast Nuggets - 8 pieces served with choice of apple slices or fries
    Mac 'n Cheese Hot Dog (I couldn't find this on any menus, so maybe this is new???)
    Chocolate Mousse x 2 for dessert!



    Ginamarie said, "The nuggets were surprisingly good-white meat and juicy. The hot dog was also good.
    We were disappointed to see the shrimp po boy off of the menu though."







    For dinner, they were back at the Sassagoula Floatworks food court at their resort, POFQ. ( sorry no pictures)



    Ginamarie said, "We had a chicken quesadilla that was really good! Cheesy and full of large chicken chunks.
    It was oddly served with baked beans though." :confused3



    "Also had fried chicken, which is still the hubby's favorite. Always hot, fresh, and nicely seasoned."


    "And for dessert, a very good brownie and two scoops of chocolate ice cream...so good! :thumbsup2 I couldn't finish the ice cream, but put the leftovers in a cup so it would make a milkshake for today." ;)


    Note from jabead: I was able to find a couple of Sassagoula menu pics online which show the items that Ginamarie & family chose.
