    Now we have a lunch update from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World today, Kerri (wdwpirates).


    She and her DH were at DHS today and had their first Disney meal at...




    [​IMG]




    Kerri said, "Rainy first day here in The World. We made it through and had a great day at DHS." :thumbsup2




    [​IMG]


    "Anyhow...here's my Angus cheeseburger topped with 3 Panko fried shrimp. This was very good! You can taste the difference in the upgraded Angus burger. Not dry at all. The shrimp were very tasty. Lightly breaded with Panko crumbs...not dry or overlooked. The fries were just so-so. As DH put it...they were limp. LOL!"





    [​IMG]


    "DH's Angus cheeseburger. Same as the other...sans shrimp. DH enjoyed his burger very much and also commented how you could really taste the difference from the regular Disney burger."




    [​IMG]

    "Chocolate Mousse....DH and I split this. It was nice and chocolatey! But not heavy. It sort of has the flavor of old fashioned chocolate pudding. Quite nice."



    "We normally would have gone for Starring Rolls on our first day at DHS but it was so rainy and wet we just wanted to be somewhere dry. I was pleasantly surprised with ABC. It was very clean and cast members were friendly and continuously cleaning tables. Good quality, was adequate for a CS. Burgers were quite good. Fries needed work on their soggy / limp issue."





    And then later for a snack they had...


    [​IMG]

    "Mickey bars...What more can one say....simply divine! LOL!"

    Nobody believes me when I say Beverly is my favourite! It really is, and if you have an upset tummy it works wonders. If you enjoy Campari you will more than likely like Beverly. Meanwhile DH is happy that Mezzo Mix will be back on Wednesday!

    Fabulous reporting as usual everyone! I love the CL reports from YC and hope Brenda & Emily send some more pics of the Suite! I shared the good news over on the Yacht & Beach Club resort FAQ thread and everyone was so happy for them!

    Looking forward to the Raglan Road report! I went to see The Chieftains last night with my dad. They are a famous Irish music group and everything they played reminded me of my great meal at RR. They even brought out dancers!

    Next we have a dinner update from milmore104.


    She said, "For dinner we went to my oldest DD's favorite...



    Cape May Clam Bake
    Dinner Buffet



    "The menu has changed a bit, not much for land lovers like me. Still a good meal but not worth the price tag.
    There's much better places to eat!" ;)




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "Kids offerings of pizza and cod nuggets."




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "My mom and I had a margarita in honor of my Gram...it was a weekly thing we did a mother/daughter lunch and a margarita."




    [​IMG]


    "I didn't really care for any of these desserts. My mom loved the strawberry shortcake though. There was a flan with berries, some kind of chocolate with cherry in the middle, cheesecake, and a cake with chocolate frosting."



    "I tried to take a pic of the buffet at Cape May's but was asked not too!?" :confused3

    We received a dinner update last night from Kerri (wdwpirates).


    She and her DH were at DHS and had dinner at...




    Mama Melrose's



    First a menu pic...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "I had a Sangria....delicious!"





    [​IMG]


    "Rolls with dipping oil were complimentary. They were hot and fresh. I thought the oil could have used more garlic. But it was tasty just the same."






    [​IMG]

    Crispy Calamari for Two - topped with grilled peppers and onions, served with dipping sauces



    "Our app was the calamari! They do a great job with it here. Nice and crispy. Not greasy. Great flavor to the batter...and it's a lovely light batter at that. I like the tentacles and we didn't get very many. But I forgave them. The dipping sauces include spicy marinara, basil, and orange. The orange is awesome and is my fave. A nice sweet contrast to the savory calamari."






    [​IMG]

    Charred Strip Steak with five-cheese baked macaroni, aged balsamic-shallot butter, and Chianti Wine Reduction




    [​IMG]

    Carne D'Italia Flatbread with Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Pancetta, and Spicy Marinara Sauce

    "For our mains we split the Charred strip steak and the Carne d'Italia flatbread. The steak was the winner here! Great wine reduction and awesome mac and cheese with it. I would have liked a little less ricotta in the Mac but it was still very good....especially when dipped in the reduction. The flatbread was very tasty. Be warned they use the spicy marinara as the base but it has a fab flavor! The sausage, pepperoni and pancetta are all fantastic. The cheese could have been melted a bit more but overall it was YUM! We would order both again."




    Next a dessert menu pic...


    [​IMG]




    And they chose...



    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Amarettini Cheesecake
    Chocolate-flavored Cheesecake with a Cookie Crust, Almond Cream, and Italian Amarettini Cookies



    "We split the Chocolate Amarettini Cheesecake for dessert. This cheesecake is amazing! The chocolate on top is heaven.
    I could eat a bowl of it. The Amarettini cookies and the little chocolate curlicues are fab!!" :thumbsup2

    She and her family were at the Polynesian Resort this morning and had breakfast at...



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Breakfast breads





    [​IMG]

    Front platter: Scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, and biscuits
    Served on separate platter (superchime is vegetarian): pork breakfast sausage links and smoked bacon



    She said, "So they were nice enough to put the meat on a separate tray so it wouldn't be touching my food.

    The chef also brought out a bowl of stir fry veggies for me." (pictured below)





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "Mickey waffles! These were great!"





    [​IMG]

    There are a couple of options for sending your updates (pics) to me. If you plan to take pictures with your phone, you can either text them to me (or send by iMessage, since I see you also have an IPhone) from your phone or email them to me. I just need at least a short description of what the picture is and where it's from. But I also welcome your comments and/or more detailed descriptions too, if you choose to include them. If instead, you plan to take pictures with a regular camera and are able to download them to a laptop, IPad, etc. and then email them to me while you are at Disney World, then that would also work fine for me.

    So if you think either of these methods might work for you, then I would love to have you join the March team of live reporters. :thumbsup2

    Kathy (Kathymford) & her DBF (Steve) were also at the Polynesian Resort this morning for breakfast, but they dined at...


    KONA CAFE


    Kathy said, "Steve doesn't usually do breakfast so I was thoroughly surprised when he told me to book Kona.
    Yay! Tonga Toast." :cool1:





    "But, Kona had other ideas with a special menu..."


    [​IMG]



    "I love red velvet. So with a promise from Steve that I could have some of his Tonga toast, here are our meals." ;)





    [​IMG]

    Red Velvet Pancakes




    [​IMG]

    Tonga Toast


    "The pancakes were like eating a giant cupcake. No complaints, but I only ate half.
    Steve doesn't even like bananas but got the toast anyway. We both loved it!!" :thumbsup2

    Wow! Those red velvet pancakes look yummy! Are they a special item or do they serve them all the time? Might have to make a ressie for breakfast in September , if it is on the regular breakfast menu.

    I believe it's a seasonal thing, with other flavors of pancakes featured throughout the year. In the fall, they have pumpkin and around the holidays I think I've seen gingerbread. :confused3
