    One more update came in last night, this one from Kathymford.


    Kathy and Steve were at Epcot yesterday and had lunch at...




    Electric Umbrella


    Kathy said, "We got a late start to Epcot today, so we were starving by the time we got there. So, Electric Umbrella was the first thing that sounded good. We hadn't had a burger all week, so it hit the spot."




    [​IMG]


    "We both got the mushroom Swiss burger, but I traded my mushrooms for his onion ring. Great trade. This was pretty good, but remember we were starving. The fries were hot and fresh and yummy. Dessert was your average Disney pre-packaged strawberry cheesecake."





    [​IMG]


    "Not delicious, but for some reason couldn't stop eating. Ha!"






    "In the late afternoon we finally made it to Boulangerie Patisserie for a snack."



    [​IMG]


    "Steve got the eclair and enjoyed it."





    [​IMG]


    "And I got the Napoleon which I never knew of before this thread. This wasn't as sweet as I was expecting besides the top layer. The other layers were not mushy for me, but really flakey. It made it hard to eat, but was pretty good."




    "Because of our late snacks, I was barely hungry for Garden Grill and completely forgot to take pictures. We were in love with the steak and mashed potatoes. And the character interaction was the one of the best we've ever had."

    How perfect that Kathy didn't get GG pictures but superchime did! That dessert looks good. I wasn't fond of the crisp when I was there but I think i would like that.

    Next in this morning was an update from milmore104's breakfast yesterday at...


    [​IMG]


    She said, "I haven't been in years. It's the standard breakfast buffet but it was excellent. The food was hot and fresh. We mainly went to see characters and for mickey waffles of course... it did not disappoint. Only thing that could have made it better was real syrup." ;)




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    Then she said, "My dinner was a carrot cake and chocolate cake from the..."


    Pepper Market




    [​IMG]



    "They were good. We were on a bus headed to DTD to Fulton's for dinner when a man dropped his stroller on my broken toe ( I had broken it on the first half of my vacation at my mother-in-law's). I just couldn't continue on with them. It hurt bad enough walking all day, so this sent me back to the room. The rest of them continued on but didn't take any pics. :guilty: But they said it was delish. My oldest DD and mom had the lobster."


    "On a happy note I just got a call and our bid was accepted for our house. So we will he moving to New Smyrna Beach next month and will only be one hour away from DISNEY!!!" :cool1:

    [​IMG]

    Banana Bread French Toast with Bananas Foster Sauce and sausage

    [​IMG]

    Belgian Waffle with pecan topping and maple syrup and a scrambled egg (substituted for meat)

    "I started with the tomato bisque soup. It was very good. Nice, hot and creamy. Great flavor to it also."




    [​IMG]

    Tuna Salad Sandwich - tuna salad with lettuce and tomato on freshly baked croissant


    "I chose the tuna salad sandwich for my lunch. It was okay. The tuna salad wasn't strongly flavored was my problem with sandwich. Croissant was flaky. The fries are my favorite on property due to that they are crispier than any on property.
    I would go back again."
