    emmebear chose from this a...


    [​IMG]

    Hoegaarden Beer


    emmebear said, "Yummy!"




    [​IMG]

    Mussels Provencal with White Wine, Tomato, Garlic, Onion, Basil and Butter


    emmebear said, "Very tasty."




    [​IMG]

    Potato Leek Soup


    emmebear said, "This is much better than the French onion but nothing spectacular."



    [​IMG]

    Bread Basket



    emmebear said, "My battery died after the bread. :worried: My friend had the salmon and I had the pork. We each had the strawberry cream cheese cupcake and received the "Gray Stuff" as a surprise."



    emmebear added, "Overall, an ok meal. Service not up to par with the setting. I'm sure the kinks will work out soon. The castle was beautiful at night. The beast was awesome. He walked around the restaurant every 30 minutes. Then you can take a picture with him after your dinner. Great interaction!"



    And speaking of the Beast...

    Our First Official Update of the Day came from Pam (mousiemom).


    She and her family are at Epcot today and had lunch at...



    La Cantina de San Angel



    [​IMG]

    Nachos x 2 - Corn tortilla chips topped with ground beef, nacho cheese, tomatoes, jalapenos, black beans and sour cream




    [​IMG]

    Churros con Cajeta - Churros with milk caramel


    Note from jabead: Is it just me or do these churros look different??? :confused3




    And while still in Mexico, Pam took this holiday-themed pic...


    [​IMG]

    Storyteller from Mexico: Three Kings


    Note from jabead: In case you have not been to WDW during this time of year, here is an explanation of the World Showcase Storytellers.

    One of the really special things about celebrating the holiday season in Epcot is learning about the holiday traditions of all the different countries. Each country has its own special theme that highlights its culture. Storytellers will delight you with tales of their heritage and how the holidays are celebrated in their homeland. It's a unique opportunity to learn more about the world in which we live. Check the times guide for storytellers' schedules.




    And one final Mexico-themed pic was sent with this update...

    Susan (jecskc) attempted to send her update from yesterday, but was unable to do so due to problems with the internet at SSR (Susan was sending her updates to me through PMs). But no worries, because she will be doing a full Dining Report soon (their trip ends today). So we will get to hear about their final day at Disney, as well as all the details from the meals she previewed for us with her updates. :thumbsup2


    Therefore it is now time to say...



    Thanks so much for being a Live Reporter...Good Job!!! :thanks:

    Hi Barb!

    Interesting to compare Emmebear's BOG review to Vicki's (Goofyson'smom) BOG review she just posted.... makes me a little nervous to dine there but honestly, for the theming alone I'd go and just enjoy the beautiful restaurant.

    Love the adorable traditional Korean roayl dress that Emme wore. :cutie:

    Every time I see La Cantina de San Angel it makes me wish I could squeeze in one more meal - those nachos look awesome. (It also reminds me that I owe myself an avocado margarita! ;))

    I definitely think they will work out some of the kinks. But I don't know that it will ever be a spectacular meal. That said, the atmosphere is really great and I am a firm believer that everyone should try a restaurant at least once if it interests them. So, yes ... give it a try!

    And yes, you must have an avocado margarita! Ooooh, so good! :love:

    Red Onion, and Toasted Baguette

    Pan-seared Georges Bank Day Boat Scallops
    Lobster Mushrooms and Lemon-Thyme-Mustard Jus with Trofie Pasta, Sultana Raisins, Marcona Almonds, Young String Beans, and Herb Cream

    sanapp said, "YUM!!!!!"

    Good morning everyone! :wave2: Since we have not yet received any live updates this morning, I thought I would look ahead to December.

    We have 5 Live Reporters who have dual membership on both our November and December Teams. Therefore, as long as they send at least one update in November, they qualify to participate in both the November Scavenger Hunt and the game I have planned for the December team (details coming soon in the next post).

    If I have forgotten anyone who has previously volunteered their services...please, please, please let me know. ::yes:: Also please let me know if I have made in errors in your above-listed trip information or if your plans have changed. And of course, if there is additional information regarding your trip (such as your dining plans, resort, who is traveling with you, etc.) that you would like to share with us, then feel free to post it here on the thread. If you would prefer though to keep this information private and/or your dining plans a surprise, then that is perfectly fine too. :thumbsup2

    I'll be sending out a mass PM to all the December reporters in the next day or so. This will include my info for sending us your live updates. I will ask that you confirm your desire to participate in the live updates by either posting here on the thread or sending me a return PM.

    Thanks so much to all our December volunteers for being willing to share small pieces of your trips with all of us. With your help, it looks to be a fun-filled month with lots of fresh Disney food porn and holiday cheer! :santa:

    Oh, and stay tuned for the details of the December game! ;)

    Other details/rules

    - Im sure Ive forgotten some places but I will add them in as needed, according to their location
    - Each winning restaurant update (both TS & QS) will receive 2 Roulette Points.
    - Each winning snack update will receive 1 Roulette Point.
    - Restaurant updates (both TS & QS) must include at least one entrée to qualify.
    - Please don't forget to include the location in your update descriptions. For instance, if you send a pic of an ice cream cone please tell me from what specific location it was purchased, such as the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, and not just Magic Kingdom. If you purchase a snack from a cart and include it in an update, then say Main Street cart or cart by XXXX ride. I'll then assign it to one of the Groups so that it is eligible to win a Roulette point.
    - Updates will be eligible to win on the day they are sent, and not necessarily when they are eaten. So for instance, if you wait until the following day to send a dinner update, it then becomes eligible to win on that day rather than the day you ate it. Also the deadline for sending your updates is 11:00 p.m. (Eastern)to be eligible for that day. Any updates sent after that time by email (remember no texts after 11:00) will be carried over to the next day.
    - Daily winners will be announced on the thread and also listed in this post. I will add a link in my signature for easy access.

    - All new Disney World holiday-themed pics 1 pt. each (Here is a LINK to the list of what we have already received.)
    NOTE: Holiday-themed pics do not have to be of edible items. Anything we have not seen yet here on this thread could potentially be worth a point (subject to my discretion). So be creative with your festive photos! :santa:


    Also, Miscellaneous Bonus Points may awarded at my discretion.

    Okay, I think thats it. Clear as mud, right? Basically you just eat until you burst (but dont forget to take pics of your food first) and send in your updates to increase your chances of winning. Other than the Bonus Points, the rest is up to sheer luck. :thumbsup2

    So may the odds be ever in your favor...let the game begin! (on December 1st, that is. ;))

    I am certain I missed something. Where is the post for the scavenger hunt rules? Gotta start my planning.

    Jabead, where are you in Central Illinois? I grew up in Peoria and Pekin.q

    Thanks again for putting all this together Barb! It must take a good chunk of time each day, but there are many of us reading that appreciate it.

    As far as updates for our trip - we leave in just 10 days! We are driving, so even though we leave on 12/6, we won't arrive until 12/8. We're spending the first 2 nights at POR, with dinner scheduled our arrival day at Raglan Road. The next morning, we have breakfast scheduled at GFC. Other than that, we'll be sticking to counter service and we'll have the free QSDP when we check into Pop on 12/10.

    It will be DD's first trip and she'll turn 1 year old on 12/11. I purchased tickets to MVMCP that night, in the hopes that she'll have one of her night-owl nights which she always seems to have when I'm most tired and want to go to bed early. I know it probably won't work out that way, but maybe we can get her to sleep in the stroller while DH and I enjoy the late night activities at the party.

    Here's what I'm most looking forward to eating:
    Dole Whip (maybe add a float)
    Jalapeno cheese pretzel
    Corn dog nuggets
    Trying the nutella waffle at sleepy hollow
    We're going to attempt a lunch at BOG, but if it's too crowded then I'll get my CHH fix instead!

    Jill
