    I have more pics to send later tonight. I went to Liberty Tree Tavern for lunch and am going to Kona for dinner.
    Art of Animation is a beautiful resort. I will send those pictures later also. For anyone coming soon, it is not crowded at all! I spent 2 hours in Magic Kingdom this morning and did all of Fantasyland, Space Mountain x2, Thunder Mountain, and still wandered around just looking at things.
    If there are any menus anyone wants a pic of, just let me know.

    Thanks for checking in here with the news about MK, sarabear! :thumbsup2 And I'm thinking that maybe you should go ahead and send a pic of the Kona dinner menu our way. ;)

    ETA: Oops, just remembered that Ginamarie already sent Kona a few days ago, so Kona dinner menu not needed.

    I'm so excited to see this thread for live reports! Such a fun idea! I'm new, so I have no clue how to do pre-trip reports or regular dining reports. However, I'd be happy to send some pics along during my next trip if you need me to. I'll be there Dec. 3rd - 14th, and I'll be at AoA... SO excited!!! :banana: :hyper: I have loved all of the reports that I've read from you DISboard veterans.

    Barb, this is such an awesome thread! Thank you so much for doing this for all of us!! I popped in a couple of times at work today just to get a quick Disney pick me up! :thumbsup2

    I made a couple of ADRs for our November trip ... Sci Fi, Yak & Yeti (really for dessert only), Tokyo Dining, The Plaza and Kona Cafe Breakfast.

    More importantly, I made ADRs for our (I hope) March trip ... Tutto Italia, Be Our Guest and Rose & Crown!

    Very cool to see pics from a Little Mermaid room! And I don't think LTT's menu has changed much, although that BLT sandwich appears to be new. :)

    Stopping by to get my live food fix for the day! That lemon pudding cake at YSH looks pretty delish but for some reason I am craving a slab of beef right now!

    And two hours later, Alice & Snow were also at the Yacht Club having dinner at... :rotfl:


    YACHTSMAN STEAKHOUSE




    First the menu pics...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Onion Pull-Apart Rolls



    Alice said, "I love the bread here. Honestly, I could come here just for the bread with the sea salt butter and roasted garlic."




    [​IMG]

    Cocktails



    Alice said, "Regular margarita and mine is a tropical something (sorry!!). Snow says her drink is amazing.
    I proposed to mine it was so good." :lmao:





    [​IMG]

    Caesar Salad


    "Snow said "WOW! Homemade dressing is to die for, she loved the deconstructed presentation.
    After finishing it, she said she was already content with the two dining credits being used." ;)




    [​IMG]

    Artisanal Cheeses (no blue)


    Alice said, "I liked my cheese plate. I wish they would have told me what I was eating, since the accoutrement on the far left in the photo was tomato based and I really dislike a strong tomato taste. The second cheese was hard and served with grapes. Very good. Third cheese was I believe a parmesan reggiano served with a raisin based chutney. I have no idea what the fourth cheese was, but it was served in a peppered olive oil and was really good. I even got Snow to try the last two and she was surprised at how much she liked them (she's a cheddar only girl, I'm trying to fix that :laughing: )"




    [​IMG]

    28-oz. Porterhouse Steak with Macacroni & Cheese (subbed for the Fries)



    Alice said, "I talked snow into getting steak!!!!! We both had the porterhouse. Mine was medium rare and she destroyed her steak (hehe) and had it cooked well. We both subbed in the Mac and cheese, which I was slightly nervous for her to try since it isn't the tradition cheddar but she liked it (phew)."

    "However, she had to send her steak back since it came out pretty pink in the center, more of a medium-well than a well. They were very apologetic, recooked her steak to a brown color (I was so sad :worried:) and even gave her a new Mac and cheese. At which point, she devoured her steak! Yay!! Conversion to steak lover step one...complete." :thumbsup2




    And now for dessert...



    [​IMG]

    Birthday Cupcake


    To quote Snow, "I've been treated better at Disney than at home on my real birthday." :)




    Alice said, "This was such a difficult choice...but since I love salted caramel and peanut butter my choice was clear.

    Snow was so adventurous and ordered the lemon pudding cake."




    [​IMG]

    Peanut Butter and Pretzel Gianduja Cake
    with Salted Caramel Gelato and Liquid Ganache





    [​IMG]

    Lemon Pudding Cake
    Blueberry Shake, Fruit Leather, and Candied Lemon





    "Snow said hers was excellent. The blueberry shake was very fresh and the lemon cake had a strong lemon tartness that she thought melded well with the blueberries. Mine made me tingly. I literally shuddered in delight. I now want to eat nowhere else but Yachtsman for the rest of the trip.
    SO GOOD!!!" :thumbsup2
