    I would love to do July!

    I will at " the Darkside " July 8th and 9th and could do live reports from there before my Disney stay which is July 10-16th.

    I will be with a party of 9 so lots of meals to report on. I have ADR's for Boatwrights, Ohana, Prime Time, Mama Melrose, Coral Reef, Crystal Palace and a couple of others I can't remember. :rotfl2:

    I love this thread ( long time lurker ) and would love to be a part of it.

    Where in the World is jabead?



    :mic: MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE?

    The results are in for the WITWIJ Game!!!



    First I have to say that I was surprised at how easily and quickly that the game participants were able to come up with the correct locations. I really thought I might be able to stump you with a few of the uncommon restaurants that I chose, but I underestimated the level of Disney food knowledge that you have all attained here. ;)

    There were 17 people who were able to score game points and those 17 scored a total of 120 points! So congrats to all 17 of you, as I know how difficult it was to be the first to post the correct answer. ::yes::


    Here were the TOP 5 Scorers:

    #5 auntfrannie - 11 points :thumbsup2

    Three-way tie for #2, each scoring 12 points - jedijill, emmebear, & smile4stamps :cool1: :woohoo: :yay:


    And our #1 with 14 points scored...



    :worship: emmysmommy


    And so by the power vested in me as the Keeper of the Live Thread, I now bestow upon you Brenda, the honorary title of Master (or Mistress, if you prefer) of Disney Food Knowledge. Of course, in order to maintain this title and uphold the responsiblities that come with it, you must make frequent trips to Disney World and report back to us your findings. :thumbsup2

    Yay, well done Brenda - I agree with Barb, you HAVE to keep going back to WDW in order to keep your superior knowledge up to date !! :)
