    Ok, I have just a couple more updates to post, which were sent to us last night by marshallsmommy.


    Before going to the Dessert Party, they headed to Downtown Disney and had dinner at...




    Wolfgang Puck Express



    [​IMG]


    "We shared a bacon wrapped meatloaf at WPE. It was really good! Sorry the pic is after we split it in half! The cheesecake was really good! Can't wait to go back next time and try other things!" :thumbsup2




    "We also stopped at Goofy's Candy Co. and had a Goofy Glacier Slushy drink. It was really good. We got orange and it tasted like frozen Orange Crush. Very tasty!"

    Well folks after much back and forth. And I do mean I changed my mind hourly. I think we finally have decided to stay at CSR w/ the DDP. Our group has changed up a bit though. My brothers family decided not to go and my DH still can't go. So it has turned into a girls only trip. So we invited my mother to come along w/ me and my girls. We will arrive in WDW 2/23-3/1. However my mom doesn't fly in until 2/25.
    When it's me and my girls we tend to go w/the flow. So this will be a relaxing trip w/ random decisions. I can't wait to share.

    Now for the last update received last night from marshallsmommy.


    This one was from the Magic Kingdom's...



    Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party



    She said, "We are back from our dessert party and I have to say I will probably never do it again! Our ressie time was 7:10 and we were there a good 10 minutes early to check in. The line was 30 people long and there were probably 15 - 20 tables already taken in the room. We finally got checked in and had an amazing table right on the railing...really good spot!"



    [​IMG]

    View from their table




    "We sat down and I went to try and get dessert. The buffet was mobbed with people! I couldn't move! I got 2 plates of dessert and fruit for Marshall and I to share. Pretty much one of everything plus some fruit. I dropped these off and went to grab coffee for me, water for Marshall, and lemonade for Doug. Then poor Doug finally got to grab some desserts."




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "We sat and ate for a few minutes and none were really that great, but nothing horrible. The crème brulee was probably my favorite. Doug says nothing stood out that much to him. Marshall liked the little orange drink so I decided to go get him another one and there were none left...matter of fact, there were maybe 3 kinds of dessert left and no regular coffee and the pre-show (Celebrate the Magic) hadn't even started yet!!! :eek: While I was gone they announced 5 minutes till start time and when I got back I couldn't even GET to my seat. There were so many people lined up at the rail (there was maybe room for one person between the railing and my chair). I was just really disgusted with the whole experience. I was imagining something so much better than it really was! Such a let down!" :(

    Next Kathymford sent us an update from her visit yesterday to...


    DISNEYLAND


    "We went to Disneyland on Sunday for a photography meetup, and DBF (Steve) and I escaped for a little bit to get some food.

    These are from..."



    Cafe Orleans




    [​IMG]

    La Salade de Maison - signature house salad, featuring tossed baby greens in a raspberry vinaigrette, topped with cherry tomatoes, crumbled goat cheese and caramelized pecans.


    Kathy said, "I wanted to get a salad, but didn't really feel like spending $18 on the entree salad, so I got this, the appetizer salad instead. I asked for a side of chicken (you can kinda see it in the corner), which they only charged me an extra $4 for! This was fantastic; not overdressed at all. Highly recommend."




    [​IMG]

    Pommes Frites - Traditional French-fried potatoes tossed with Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley, served with a Cajun spice remoulade


    "Steve got the onion soup (no pic) and an order of fries. These were very good also. The remoulade did have some tang to it, but was so very tasty. I think this meal will become a regular rotation for us."






    "Later on, we decided it was time for dessert. So we headed to..."



    Clarabelle's Ice Cream



    [​IMG]

    Hand-Dipped Ice Cream Bar - Choose Your Bar (Vanilla Bean, Chocolate
    or Mixed Berry Sorbet), Choose Your Chocolate (Milk or Dark), and Choose Your Topping (Chocolate Chip Morsels, Confetti Mickey's, Blue Raspberry Bursts, Rainbow Sprinkles, or "The Whole Herd")



    "The one on the left is mine, the mixed berry sorbet with dark chocolate; Steve got Chocolate, with dark chocolate, with chocolate morsels. Do we see a theme? ;) I was not disappointed with the sorbet; it was amazing and a great treat. I actually didn't miss the ice cream at all." :thumbsup2

    I loved seeing the kidani pool bar menu! That's where we will be staying in August, and I'm definitely hoping for some time at the pool with a cool cocktail :)


    I still need to pack for my trip!

    Then we received another update from hulagirl87.



    [​IMG]



    She said, "Today we had a free day and went to Downtown Disney. We wanted to ride the Characters in Flight balloon, but when we got there it was closed for the weather. It was a little windy, but we were bummed. I took a picture of the Cookes of Dublin menu as we passed by."




    [​IMG]




    They had lunch at...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]






    [​IMG]

    & All American Sandwich - roast turkey, buttermilk ranch, cranberries, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and roma tomato.



    "DH had the Caribbean jerk chicken sandwich and I had the All American sandwich. Both were excellent, but we each only ate half. They are very filling! I got a side of grapes and we split a lemonade. All in all a great lunch. We love it there." :thumbsup2




    Their next stop was at...

    Then hulagirl87 and family headed to the Grand Floridian Resort to have dinner at...



    1900 Park Fare


    [​IMG]


    She said, "Tonight we went to 1900 Park Fare. Our reservation was for 5:00 but we got there around 4:30 and checked in, thinking we would just wait a half hour, but they were able to seat us right away. We sat in the very back section which was kind of dark (hence the blurry pictures - sorry!) and a little crowded once the characters came back there. We saw all 5 characters in a 10 minute span of time! That was good because then we could focus on eating." :thumbsup2



    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "The buffet there is really good and has lots of different things! I really liked the jasmine rice. DH and I both had the marsala chicken and liked it a lot. The desserts were really good, the carrot cake being the best."
