Loved the review from San Angel, because we are eating there in May. My MIL LOVES Mexican, so this was her pick (I honestly would have picked something else in WS, but I gave everybody a pick...oh well).
I'm starting off the day today with some great news! I forgot to check my email last night and when I did so this morning, there was an update from another reporter who arrived at Disney World on Saturday, atisikitabasket (Amy).
Amy said, "Hi Barb, sorry had issue with computer (we think our son spilt something on it). Here is an update of Garden Grill. We loved it as always. Great characters and the rolls and salad are delicious."
"We forgot to take pic of the first platter but I got the extra beef they brought out."
"Also the kids dessert used to be lady bug red velvet cupcakes, but this time it was a white cone shaped cupcake with chocolate icing and pearls and we loved them. We asked for the kids dessert instead of the cobbler."
"Here is pic of our daughter Carly with Mickey..."
"I will send email tomorrow with Raglan Road, 50's Prime Time and Cooke's of Dublin!"

When I went to add your March trip to the list, I realized that I didn't know how long the Dream cruises last so wasn't sure the end date of your trip.
Great Garden Grill update!! Haven't been there in a few years. That beef looked delicious as did the kid's dessert!!! Hmmm....might have to reassess some ressies!
Our First Update of the Day was sent to us this morning by nicole0992. This is a three part lunch update from yesterday, as the three of them chose different QS locations.
She said, "We were at DHS yesterday and I had lunch at..."
Starring Rolls Cafe
Black Forest Ham Sandwich
"It was delicious but I had to remove half the ham to be able to fit the sandwich in my mouth!"
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake
"I also had to try this impressive looking cupcake. It was so pretty to look at but was disappointing. The cake itself was so dry and crumbly. The peanut butter filling and fudge under the frosting was very good but not worth the calories. Very disappointing. "
An inside look
Check back tonight for Part II & III of nicole's lunch update, as well an update from their dinner last night.

That review of Garden Grill makes me very excited. Our first trip there coming up soon. Can we get the cobbler AND the children's dessert!! *greedy*
that garden grill review makes me want to add it in too! what kind of fish was it? Last time we were there a few years back the fish was AWFUL. If its the same I would ask to leave it off. The new kids dessert looks like something we would all love

Well hello there, Ellen! I'd be very happy to have you again. As for your last question...YES!!! And I will be sending you a PM soon in that regard.
That would be great, superchime! I'll send you a PM with my info as soon as I post some updates. Thank you!
Now for Part II of nicole0992's lunch update from yesterday, this one from...
First a menu pic...
"My youngest daughter wanted lunch at Backlot Express for basic chicken nuggets and fries along with the no sugar added strawberry parfait for dessert."
"My daughter loves Disney nuggets. These were good but the fries were greasy and limp.
She didn't like the parfait and I didn't care for it either after tasting it."
Part III coming soon!

And for Part III of nicole0992's lunch update, we're park hopping over to Epcot's...
"Too many tour groups were at the Studios yesterday so we took the boat to Epcot. My daughter was feeling like salad so we decided to stop at Liberty Inn and try their Chicken Caesar salad."
"Wow was this a great salad! The romaine was so fresh and crisp and perfectly dressed with lots of fresh parmesan. The croutons were excellent quality too. But the biggest star was the chicken. It was grilled and was obviously marinated because it was loaded with garlic flavor. It was cooked perfectly and so moist. I might have to get one of these salads for myself soon because I couldn't stop take bites!"
"Oh, and my daughter had yet another slush with her salad. This time Fanta frozen strawberry. She loved it!"
And last a few pics of the seating area for the American pavilion's Liberty Inn...

That salad looks yummy! Even the picture of the menu it caught my eye. So glad it's good!
I am enjoying this thread so much! Thanks again! I would like to contribute but we don't travel with much technology and neither of us have smart phones. Maybe someday we will jump into this decade and get a smart phone, and if the thread is still alive, we can contribute then.
Then we have an update from nicole0992's dinner last night at...
A (not yet updated) menu pic
"We dined at 'Ohana last night. It's a must do for us on all our trips. I was anxious to see how the updated menu tasted. I have to say I really wasn't wowed by the food last night. It pains me to say that because I love 'Ohana. The food was good, hot and fresh. We weren't rushed. Had a window table during Wishes. The wonderful ukulele playing gentleman was the host so all that was perfect."
'Ohana Welcome Bread
"I was not a fan at all of the new salad! The previous honey lime was the best! The new passion fruit dressing has an odd flavor to me and was just too sweet. The mandarin oranges were definitely canned and not fresh and were so mushy. The diced "passion fruit", was I think was papaya."
"The pork dumplings were the same and still delicious. They were still drizzled in sweet and sour sauce. Chicken wings were still the honey coriander and were fine."
"We were only given a large dish of the peanut sauce. We asked for more sweet and sour but were told that they now only serve peanut sauce. Okay then. It's on the pot stickers so it's obviously back in the kitchen!"
"The noodles tasted sweeter to me than I remembered. I think they changed the sauce. They appeared much lighter in color. The stir fry veggies were a nice blend of red onion, baby corn, mushrooms, pea pods, and red peppers but I didn't enjoy them. They were mushy and very salty. No real flavor."
"I was full so only had a tiny piece of beef and chicken. The meats were great as always. Thank goodness no changes there or the dessert!"
'Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode
"Sorry this was so long but wanted to give a full review of the menu changes. I last ate here at the end of July to compare."
