    HoneyBeeM sent this snack update...



    [​IMG]


    HBM said, "These are cake pops from Storybook Circus Big Top Souvenirs. The Mickey one is red velvet and the pink is vanilla. These were so moist and tasty. Not too sweet."




    Then a Holiday-themed update...


    [​IMG]


    HBM said, "The popcorn was buttery and delicious!"




    Then they visited the new Fantasyland area, including Gaston's Tavern, where they tried this...


    [​IMG]


    HBM said, "This is my brother enjoying a pint of LeFou's Brew. This was tasty...very sweet though. It's like frozen apple juice."


    Note from jabead: The last two updates from Gaston's have included a pic of someone enjoying LeFou's Brew. This gave me the idea to add this to the Scavenger Hunt list. So any update from Gaston's will receive a bonus point if it includes the reporter or another member of their travel party enjoying a LeFou's Brew. :thumbsup2

    And speaking of the Scavenger Hunt List, I've added many potential points to the list in order to replace the Food & Wine Festival points. ;)

    Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - Vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream


    HBM said, "We ordered this based on Disboards reviews. My mom said it's to die for, and all Dad could say was "oh man!" :)

    We also received an update last night from HoneyBeeM. She and her family got their dinner last night from the...


    Boardwalk Pizza Window



    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    HBM said, "I got a pic of the cute box just before the pepperoni pizza was pilfered.
    It was gone before I got a chance to snap another pic. Good pizza - thick dough, but still good."



    Note from jabead: I remembered that I had gotten a pepperoni (& sausage) pizza from the Boardwalk Pizza Window on my last trip, so I'm going to add the pic here so you can see what their pizza probably looked like. As you can see, I too had a problem getting a pic before a couple of slices went missing. ;)


    [​IMG]

    jabead's Boardwalk Pizza - Pepperoni & Sausage




    Now back to HoneyBeeM's update...



    "Dessert tonight in Norway. The school bread is delicious!
    My brother said it tasted like a mix of banana, coconut, and pumpkin bread." :thumbsup2

    :cheer2: RECRUITMENT TIME :cheer2:


    Thanks so much to all of you who have volunteered your services during your upcoming trips. Because of you, we should have a steady stream of fresh Disney food porn to drool over from now until Christmas. :lmao:

    But here are the dates which we could still use some additional live reporters:


    December 21 - December 27 - 1 more reporter needed

    December 28 - January 1 - We have no one yet for these dates :sad2:

    January 2 - January 10 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

    January 21 - January 31 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed


    So if your trip to Disney World falls during any of these dates, please consider doing live updates for us either by text or email. :flower3: Also, if you're going sometime between now and the end of January but not during the above listed dates, please still check with me if you would like to be a live reporter. I might still be able to squeeze you into the schedule depending on your dates. ;)

    Thanks again everyone! :thanks:

    Be our Guest




    First some menu pics...



    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Kids Menu





    [​IMG]

    French Onion Soup


    emmebear said, "This was pretty bland and disappointing. No flavor."


    She added, "They should be ashamed of that French onion soup. It was pretty lackluster. The melted cheese was the only good thing about it."






    [​IMG]

    Carved Turkey Sandwich
    served warm on a Baguette with Dijon Mayonnaise and Pommes Frites (aka French fries)




    emmebear said, "This thing was huge! Turkey was very moist and delicious. I loved the crunch of the greens and onions. I could only eat half. Emme ate the turkey only off the other half. Thumbs up!" :thumbsup2





    [​IMG]

    Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake


    emmebear said, "This was really good. Emme ate most of it."


    emmebear's other comment regarding this meal, "You can't customize anything or get a side of something. Emme wanted mashed potatoes but I could not order a side of it." :sad2:





    emmebear sent one more interesting pic with this update...


    [​IMG]

    BoG's Customer Tracking System



    emmebear described this as, "The rose which has a GPS for the CM to find you with your food."

    The "locator" for BOG lunch is quite interesting - what a great way to match the lunch to the guest. :thumbsup2

    I'm excited if Beaches & Cream went back to angelfood cake instead of the other type of sponge cake for the strawberry shortcake! (I just peeked at the menu and it looks like indeed it was changed back to angelfood cake. :))

    Oops, I think you're right Brenda about the change in the Strawberry Shortcake. I took the shortcut and copied the description from an online menu that I thought looked up to date. But instead I should have gone one page back or so to Roma's update, which included menu pics. I should have learned my lesson by now not to trust the online menus. :lmao:


    [​IMG]


    Anyway, that is why I love it when the reporters include those menu pics! Keep them coming folks! :thumbsup2

    Here is what they ordered...

    Cyndi said, "This was tasty but very big!"





    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kids Turkey Sandwich
    Carved Turkey Sandwich on multi-grain bread with sweet potato wedges and peach applesauce
    (looks like the sweet potato wedges were subbed for regular french fries ;))
