    Couchy and her DH paid another visit to the Food & Wine Festival today.
    This time they tried...




    [​IMG]

    From France: "Coq au Vin sur gratin de macaroni" (Red Wine braised Chicken, Mushrooms, Pearl Onions and Macaroni Gratin)


    Couchy said, "This was a 7/10, good but kinda bland."




    [​IMG]

    From Greece: Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki


    Couchy said, "We gave this an 8/10. I liked the flavor and thought it was good. Nice and light."





    [​IMG]

    From the Cheese Booth: Trio of Artisan Cheeses
    Beecher's Flagship Reserve Cheddar, La Bonne Vie Goat Brie and Rogue River Creamery Echo Mountain Blue Cheese



    Couchy said, "DH loved it and gave it a 9/10, me not so much. Lots of either goat or sheep's milk and I only like cow cheese, so DH ate it all."



    That's two new booths (Greece was a repeat from yesterday), so two points awarded! :thumbsup2

    We received a surprise update earlier tonight from Candycane83. I was not expecting her arrival at Disney World until 11/5, but found out that she is actually in Orlando now and staying at Universal.
    But tonight she was at Magic Kingdom for the final MNSSHP of the year.
    And while there she had dinner at the...



    Plaza Restaurant




    [​IMG]

    Strawberry Milkshake


    Candice said, "We're at the Plaza restaurant right now. Eric and I got the meatloaf and strawberry shake to share.
    Love the milkshake!" :thumbsup2

    Good morning everyone! :wave2:

    We have not yet received any updates today from our reporters, so I thought I would use this lull in the action to do some more reporter recruitment. In looking at the schedule for this month, we could still use a couple more reporters beginning Nov. 13 through Nov. 30. So if you have a trip planned for the latter part of this month and would like to get it on the November Scavenger Hunt fun, please let me know. In looking ahead to December, we need one or two more reporters for the first week (Dec. 1 - 9) and then from Dec. 21 - 31. Oh, and I'll try to come up with something equally fun (similar to the Scavenger Hunt) for our December team of reporters. I'd also like to now begin recruiting for the month of January. At this time we have only 3 people lined up to do live updates, so the entire month is wide open.

    Our first update today came from Couchy.

    She and her DH had dinner last night at...



    Beaches & Cream



    [​IMG]

    Bacon Angus Beef Cheeseburger served with Cobb Smoked Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Lettuce, and Tomato on a Fresh-baked bun & French Fries
    -and-
    Classic Turkey Club on Fresh-baked Sourdough Bread with Cobb Smoked Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato & Fruit



    Couchy said, "DH had the burger. He thought it was overcooked and very greasy but it filled a void, gave it 6.5/10. I had the turkey club, which was good and very big. I wished for more crisp lettuce though. Gave it 7.5/10."




    Then for dessert they shared this...



    [​IMG]

    No Way Jose
    A Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge delight featuring Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Morsels, Whipped Cream, and a Cherry.



    Couchy said, "We had it with coffee ice cream, which I really enjoyed!" 8/10

    Couchy also sent our second update of the day.


    She and her DH just had lunch at Epcot's...




    VIA NAPOLI




    [​IMG]

    Calamari Fritti - Corn-crusted Rings served with Spicy Tomato Sauce
    & Sangra - A refreshing blend of Italian wine and fresh fruit
    & La Rossa Beer - Amber-colored double malt Italian lager



    Couchy said, "Sangria for me was a 9/10. I can't get enough of the stuff. :thumbsup2 DH had the La Rossa beer. He loves it and gave it an 8.5/10. The calamari we usually love but today it was only a 7/10. It was a bit greasy and chewy, but still good."






    [​IMG]

    Chicken Sausage & Onion Pizza


    Couchy said, "We split a pizza and gave it a 9.5/10. It was very good! :thumbsup2
    DH would eat every meal here if I let him." :lmao:

    DH and I are going down January 28-30 (just a quick 3 day trip). Already planning on California Grill (since they pushed back the refurb), Boma and hoping for Sanaa and something in Epcot. Also, I am definitely dragging DH to BOG for lunch and still trying for dinner ressies. I'm still kinda new to DIS but I would love to report. :)

    That would be great Li Li! We can definitely use you in January! And don't worry about being a DIS newbie. I think this will be the perfect way to "get your feet wet" (so to speak) and see how you like reporting on your Disney Dining experiences. :thumbsup2

    So I will add you to the January trip list in Post #2. I'll plan to contact all the January reporters sometime next month and will give you all my info then. Thanks! :goodvibes



    Hi Linda and welcome back! :wave2: You really did a fantastic job with covering the Disneyland food. I haven't been there since 2002 and now you have me thinking about it again. I most definitely want to visit that Tiki Bar! :lmao:

    And if you fly all the way from London for a DIS meet then the least we can do is make sure that there is a margarita or two waiting for you when you get there. ;) How about if you get the ball rolling with presenting us with a list of general dates (months) in 2013-14 when you might be able to make it back to the States? Are you still thinking about a trip in Nov. 2013?






    Thanks so much, awfullybigadventure! I'm so glad you are enjoying this thread! :thumbsup2

    Also, we will be going back to WDW in January! Woo Hoo. We are going to be kinda all over the place. Right now we get there January 17 and leave the 21st. Plans are right now to be staying our first night at Carribean Beach, subject to change to Shades of Green, then going up to check out The Villages, then over to Clearwater for a night. We will be ending up at the Boardwalk on Saturday for the rest of our trip.

    So, I would be happy to report again if you would like. We will definitely be eating at different places than we did on our last trip. As this will just be me and DH! :cool1:
