    Hi Stephanie! :wave2:

    Your ticker says your trip is still more than a week away, but I think you are actually arriving at Disney World this Sunday, 10/14. Is that right?

    I bet you are very excited! :hyper:

    Just realized that I missed a DISer on my list, who will also be arriving at Disney World tomorrow...
    (my apologies, Josh :guilty:)


    Jagfanjosh3252 will be at Disney World from 10/11 - 10/15 and is planning to do a Live Dining Report while there, which he has already started. Jagfanjosh3252's DR


    So check out Josh's DR starting tomorrow for his live from Disney World updates! :thumbsup2


    Just saw that Josh decided to head to WDW a day early, so he's there now and headed to the F & W Festival! :cool1:

    Just received the first update from Paula (smile4stamps). She is at the San Jose airport, waiting to board her flight to Denver. She will then be surprising her DH, Hunter, by boarding his plane to fly from Denver to Orlando. How cool is that? :woohoo:


    Anyway, she sent a couple of airport food pics our way to tide us over until she gets to the Disney food. :rotfl:

    Grilled Chicken Wrap and French Fries


    Paula said, "This is my airport lunch. Haven't eaten since yesterday! Fries are hot and crispy. The wrap...kinda blah. So the wrap became a salad! :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    Maine Lobster Salad with Toasted Brioche, Avocado Dressing, and Watermelon Three Ways


    stitchaholic said, "This had a nice piece of brioche bread and chunk of lobster meat, then a salad of lobster, capers, avocado, and pickled watermelon rind, with a round of watermelon. The sweetness of the watermelon rounded out the saltiness of the salad. It was an interesting dish."





    [​IMG]

    Oak-fired Filet of Beef with Cheesy Potato Casserole, Brussel Sprouts, Bacon, and Teriyaki Barbecue


    stitchaholic said, "The steak was cook perfectly. My DBF loved it! I did not enjoy the sauce.
    The potato gratin was delicious."

    Seared Diver Scallops with Zellwood Corn Risotto, Spiced Tomato Broth, and Micro Popcorn Shoots


    stitchaholic said, "The scallops were delish! I loved the roasted tomato sauce, but I was not fond of the corn risotto. I think corn is an uninteresting mix in a creamy risotto."




    And for their desserts...

    [​IMG]

    Heather's Chocolate Sampler
    Marshmallow Whoopie Pies, Chipotle Chocolate Cupcake, Peanut Butter Buckeye Pop, and Valrhona Mint Chocolate Cup



    stitchaholic said, "I was not fond of the chocolate peanut butter pop. Just too much after a big meal. The chipotle cupcake was moist and delish, with interesting flavors. The whoopie pie was okay, but the roasted marshmallow was amazing. And my favorite was the mint chocolate cup."
