    And then a lunch update from AlohaPolynesian.


    She and her group had lunch today at Animal Kingdom's...




    Restaurantosaurus



    [​IMG]

    - Chicken Breast Nuggets & French fries
    - Chicken BLT Salad
    - Vegetable Subosaurus - grilled vegetables, mushrooms, and onions served on a toasted roll with French fries




    AlohaPolynesian said, "Just ate at Restaurantosaurus! My nieces split the chicken tenders, my sister had the Chicken BLT Salad - she said this was just okay. I had the Veggie Subosaurus without cheese. It was surprisingly good due to the fact that the bread seemed fresh and the portion of veggies was pretty good!"




    Then later AlohaPoly sent this update...



    "Just did dinner in the room tonight (I had potato chips). One of the little princesses isn't feeling well so we called it an early night and are watching Disney movies in our room. I DID need a little something though, so I headed to the Outer Rim in CR. I was perusing the menu when the bartender said I "must" try the Captain's Mai Tai, so I did. Now I'm enjoying it while watching Princess and the Frog." :)

    We also had a lunch update from dreamscometrue101.


    Here is what she said, "We just finished up lunch at Everything POP. Not the best use of the deluxe dining plan but since we are about to head to the pool it was the only option."


    Everything Pop Food Court

    Chicken nugget kids meal with grapes, apples and chocolate milk.


    "Obviously they were good because they were gone before I could take a picture of my lunch." ;)





    [​IMG]

    Chicken burrito with tie died cheesecake, strawberry milk and a pickle.


    "Pickle for the kid, and just had to try the cheesecake." ;)



    "The burrito was very dry. A lot of flavour but could have used a little more something to moisten it up. And I know the cheesecake is one of their signature items but it was just really sweet cheesecake. I only ate two bites. I like the red velvet cake on the bottom but it's not something I will have again."

    Next update is from CaliBear, who had lunch at DHS'...


    '50s Prime Time Cafe



    CaliBear said, "Lunch was at '50s Prime Time. We loved this. We shared onion rings and the PB & J shake.
    Both were delicious."

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



    "We also had the sampler. This was all good but our favorite was the fried chicken. We ate our greens so no punishments, but I did get scolded by the entire room for texting at the table...and yes, I had been texting you an update." :lmao:

    Our last update for today is from a new reporter, marshallsmommy.


    She and her family arrived at Disney World today.




    Here is what she said, "We made it! First thing, we were booked for lake view in BLT and this is our view...


    [​IMG]


    "Wow, we were shocked!"




    "First thing we did was go to new Fantasyland and Marshall and I shared a LaFou's Brew. It was "meh", not everything I was hoping for."


    [​IMG]




    "Then we stopped at the Lunching Pad for a sweet cream cheese pretzel. Yum! Marshall and I really liked it.
    Doug (the hubby) didn't though."



    [​IMG]




    'OHANA



    [​IMG]


    "Then tonight we ate at 'Ohana. Doug loved the salad. I didn't. We both liked the wings best and the steak. The noodles were AMAZING. Marshall ate his weight in them! And Doug picked every mushroom out of the stir-fried veggies. He thought they were great. The sad part...I didn't love the bread pudding. I wanted to, but I just didn't." :worried:

    Double thanks DDW! We are staying at the BCV and needed somewhere for lunch today on our non-park day. That might just be the ticket.

    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us this morning by disneybride96.


    She and her DH had dinner last night at Epcot's...




    La Hacienda de San Angel



    disneybride said, "We had the most amazing experience at La Hacienda last night. The food was good but the service was amazing." :thumbsup2



    They started by sharing the...


    [​IMG]

    Queso Fundido
    Melted Cheese with Poblano Peppers, Chorizo, and served with Flour Tortillas



    "CHEESE, CHEESE, AND MORE CHEESE. YUMMMMM!"




    Then for their shared entree, they chose the...


    [​IMG]

    La Hacienda
    Mixed Grill offering with New York strip, Chicken al Pastor, and Chorizo. Served with grilled vegetables and side dishes of rice, beans, and fresh salsas.



    "So much food! The chorizo was incredible and the corn had a nice spicy flavor. You need to like spice for this meal, but we did not think it was overdone."


    "We ordered dessert, but were so full by then. DH got Empanada de Manzana (puff pastry filled with sauteed caramel apple, and served with dulce de leche ice cream and cajeta, which is Mexican caramel sauce). This was too rich after a heavy meal."


    "I ordered Helado - traditional Mexican ice cream, which was really sorbet. It was just right!" :thumbsup2

    We also received a dinner update this morning from CaliBear.


    She and her DBF had dinner last night at AKL's...



    BOMA



    CaliBear said, "We ate dinner last night at Boma and we loved it. Best meal so far for us." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]


    "Starter plate: White Bean Hummus, Lavosh, Marinated Artichokes, Feta and Olive Salad. Everything was delicious."




    [​IMG]

    Chicken and Corn Chowder





    [​IMG]

    Butternut Squash Soup


    "DBF said this is more like dessert soup, but he ate the whole thing so I guess that's good."




    [​IMG]


    "DBF's delicious medium rare strip loin, slow-roasted for 4 hours according to the carver. Sauces are sambal, Boma mustard, bbq, and masai mara."




    [​IMG]


    "My delicious well-done strip loin. I have the same sauces plus horseradish and a side of yummy fufu."




    [​IMG]


    "Left to right: Bobotie, Pork Shoulder, Chicken, and Rice with raisins. All good."




    [​IMG]


    "DBF's desserts: Peach Cobbler and Bread Pudding with rum and vanilla sauces. He couldn't pick a favorite between the two. Both were "so amazing."




    [​IMG]


    "Perfect dessert plate: Cinnamon Chocolate Mousse, Peanut Butter Square, Eggnog Cheesecake, and a Zebra Dome. I loved them all, but the peanut butter one was my favorite."

    Viking Coffee flavored with Kamora Coffee Liqueur and Bailey's Irish Cream

    She was at Epcot this morning and stopped at...




    Sunshine Seasons



    [​IMG]

    Blueberry Croissant Bread Pudding & Hot Chocolate


    CaliBear said, "The berries are nice. We liked this but it would be better with sauce. We tried a little syrup on it, but that was a bit too sweet."

    Here is a prime example of one of the things I really like about this thread...instant (Disney food) gratification! :lmao:



    And so, I'm very happy to present to you, a lunch update from Hurricane Hanna's, courtesy of disneybride96. :thumbsup2


    Hurricane Hanna's
    (located poolside at the Yacht & Beach Club Resort)




    But first a wonderfully sentimental pic from disneybride96, who was married 16 years ago at the...

    Yacht Club Wedding Gazebo


    disneybride96 said, "We always try to visit and have a smooch." :hug:



    "Then we played a round of miniature golf before lunch at Hurricane Hanna's. (Thanks to DonaldDoleWhip's previous post :thumbsup2)"




    "Here's a pic of my DH waiting at the counter for our food..."


    [​IMG]




    And a pic of the nearby seating area...


    [​IMG]





    Plus an "always appreciated" pic of the menu...


    [​IMG]



    And so, what did disneybride96 and her DH choose from Hurricane Hanna's new (and improved) menu?








    [​IMG]

    Hanna's 1/3 lb. Bacon Angus Cheeseburger
    with Vermont Cheddar and Hanna's Steak Sauce and served with French fries



    disneybride96 said, "Sorry I don't have a big report, as we were both tasting the burger. ;) It was made fresh, but just a typical Disney burger. Good enough. Probably should have tried something more unique."





    "Best part was that Mickey ice cream bars counted as dessert on the dining plan!"

    Today we received the first lunch update from Le Cellier since the recent changes. With lunch now being a 2 credit meal (on the DDP), they have switched to one combined lunch/dinner menu. This menu does not include my personal favorite lunch entrees, such as the Le Cellier burger and the salmon. :sad:


    CaliBear included pics of this new menu in her lunch updates, however some of her pics were transferred to me in a smaller size and unfortunately the menu pics were among the mini-photos.


    So get out your magnifying glasses and take a look at the new day-long menu for Le Cellier. ;)




    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    What, you can't read them? :lmao:


    Well, just in case you haven't already seen it, I'm pretty sure that this is the correct new Le Cellier Menu.



    Regarding her lunch, CaliBear said, "I had many new dishes I'd never tried before.
    We started with cheddar beer soup and bread. Delicious." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]

    Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead Beer and Bacon






    "Next we had scallops from the appetizer menu. I'd never eaten a scallop and I quite enjoyed this. DBF said they were quite nice."


    [​IMG]

    Seared Scallops with Butternut Squash, Red Pepper Jam, Pickled Mushrooms, and Rice Vinegar Gastrique





    "We also tried "poutine" with red wine reduction. I've not had real poutine so I can't compare, but this "inspired by" version was fantastic."



    [​IMG]

    Poutine Fries with Canadian Cheddar, truffle salt and red wine reduction






    "We finished with maple crème brulee. This was another dish I've never had in any flavor. It was very good."


    [​IMG]




    "Our server was Courtney. She was very sweet. The house was packed btw, but I did see a lot of people splitting the filet of doing all apps like we did."

    Next we received a couple of updates from marshallsmommy.


    First was a breakfast update from...




    Chef Mickey's



    She said, "Wish I could send a cute pic of Marshall with the characters but he was deathly afraid of them. :worried:
    So we have just two plates of food.
    First my husband's plate of meat and his beloved Mickey waffles."



    [​IMG]




    "Then my goodie plate with doughnuts (last year I thought they were Krispy Kreme, this year not so sure). Nothing stood out as must eat. Just mass-produced food for screaming children and their parents." ;)


    [​IMG]




    Later they had a snack from Les Halles Bakery


    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Mousse


    marshallsmommy said, "Yum! Not too sweet, but not too tart either. I'm not a dark chocolate fan so this was perfect. The little balls are like rice krispies and were a weird addition texturally when you are thinking mousse."





    Next came this lunch update from marshallsmommy.



    Tangierine Cafe



    [​IMG]

    Chicken & Lamb Combo Shawarma Platter served with side of Hummus, Tabouleh and a Tangierine Couscous Salad with fresh Moroccan bread

    "We couldn't agree where to have lunch, so I got the Chicken and Lamb Shawarma from Tangierine Café. I wish I would have just gotten lamb. It was really good and so was the hummus and bread. The couscous was okay. Not a huge fan of whole mint. It's in a "to go" box because Doug ate in Mexico so I grabbed mine and we trekked to Mexico to eat!"





    La Cantina de San Angel



    [​IMG]

    Tacos de Carne - smoked beef brisket tacos served on fresh handmade corn tortillas with Pico de Gallo, lime and corn tortilla chips




    "Doug had the tacos de carne. They were just okay. One thing that annoyed me was that this was our first time using the regular dining plan and a quick service credit since we ate all table service last time. So Doug comes back with no churros and as a good DISer I know those are part of the plan. He said the girl who rang him up didn't say anything about dessert and I didn't go back to argue for fear that the birds would take off with my son!" :scared:

    Next we received this update from AlohaPolynesian.




    She said, "First picture is of a yummy caramel apple from the..."

    Main Street Confectionary




    [​IMG]


    "Based on a suggestion from the DIS, I asked them to cut it up. Great idea! We shared it and it was delicious!"





    1900 Park Fare



    AlohaPolynesian said, "Dinner was at 1900 Park Fare. It was average. The Piña Colava cocktail I got helped, though." :)



    [​IMG]

    Pina CoLAVA
    Bacardi Black RAZZ rum with pina colada mix and raspberry puree






    "I started with the vegan noodle salad and some roasted/marinated veggies. Noodle salad was okay but roasted veggies were gross."


    [​IMG]






    "So I went back and got some veggie sushi and make your own pasta with marinara sauce and veggies. The veggie sushi was actually outstanding, and the pasta was just okay."


    [​IMG]




    "Chef TJ wasn't there, so I did not bother requesting a separate vegan meal. Instead I just tried a few things and wasn't that strict about it this evening....OOPS!"



    "1900 Park Fare food is not a good reason to eat here, but the character interaction is awesome!" :thumbsup2

    Then we have a dinner update from marshallsmommy.




    Garden Grill



    She said, "Dinner was at Garden Grill in the Land tonight. The rolls with salted butter drizzled with some kind of syrup were amazingly good. I ate 3 rolls myself." ;)



    [​IMG]


    Family Style Platter (All You Care to Enjoy)
    featuring: Char Grilled Beef Strip Loin, Roasted Turkey Breast, Fish of the Day, Garden Fresh Vegetables, Smashed Potatoes, and Turkey Dressing






    And for dessert...


    [​IMG]

    Fruit Cobbler with vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream)??? :confused3





    marshallsmommy also sent this cake picture earlier...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    She said, "Haven't cut into it but I'll let you know how it tastes. Shout out to the cake thread for all the info you need for special ordering." :thumbsup2

    I'll post one more update tonight and will have to save the rest for tomorrow morning.


    This is a dinner update from CaliBear.




    MARA



    [​IMG]

    1/3 pound Angus Bacon Cheeseburger & French fries


    "CaliBear said, "You can sub couscous for fries if you wish. Not pictured: a fountain drink and some hummus and pita chips that we purchased to eat in the morning. When you order a cook to order item here they give you a pager that lights up when your food is ready. So we brought a cup, chips, hummus, and a slip of paper to the cashier and paid $17 and some change. A few minutes later, the pager lit up and he went to get the burger...and he paid for the burger a second time. :confused3 Either he's extremely tired and forgot he'd already paid for it or he's so used to paying high prices for Disney food that he actually thinks chips, dip, and one soda cost $17. ;) Anyway, he was reimbursed and he really enjoyed the fries: crisp outside, soft inside. And the burger was ok."
