    Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop


    [​IMG]

    Intense Dark Mint Bliss - one scoop of mint chip ice cream, one scoop of chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a square of Mint Bliss Intense Dark chocolate


    sanapp said, "Then we went to La Nouba last night and really enjoyed the show. After the show we had a 8:00 ADR @ Raglan Road."

    sanapp started with this cocktail...


    [​IMG]

    Unknown Cocktail


    sanapp said, "Sorry I don't have my notes, so I don't have the name of the drink. It was fruity, but not my favorite."




    Then for her appetizer she had...


    [​IMG]

    Kiss Before Shrimp – Pan-seared shrimp in a garlic & chili lemon butter sauce with crostinis. Get your kissing done before this dish arrives



    sanapp said, "I had the shrimp which were way to spicy for me."



    "DD got the chicken for her entree (no pic), which was her absolute favorite of the trip. Oh, and then I had the It's Not Chowder and it was SSSSOOOOO GOOOOOD. This may have been my favorite dish of the trip."



    [​IMG]

    It's not bleedin' Chowder!
    That's what Master Chef said! It's the freshest cuts of seafood & potatoes in a white wine infused cream broth. But it’s not chowder. Ok?





    sanapp said, "We got dessert to go as DD was so tired! We would come back again, but perhaps an earlier time!!!" :thumbsup2

    Coming in last night by email after the 11:00 p.m. (Eastern) deadline for Dec. 1st, was this update from AlohaPolynesian.


    She and her mom were at the Contemporary Resort last night to have dinner at...



    California Grill



    AlohaPolynesian said, "California Grill was awesome!! My mom ordered a salad for her appetizer that had cinnamon apples in it. I forget the name of it but she absolutely loved it." :thumbsup2



    [​IMG]

    Heirloom Apple Salad with Pistachio Vinaigrette, Local Greens, Rogue River Blue Cheese





    AP said, "I ordered an off the menu, chef's choice vegetarian sushi roll. I am used to the sushi I get back home - tiny little rolls usually. This was HUGE!!!!!! Filled with red pepper, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, and avocado. It was really good."



    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Sushi Roll





    AP then said, "I should've stopped myself after a couple of pieces because I ordered the vegetarian Pumpkin Fig Ravioli, which was delicious but very rich. I could only eat two pieces because I was so full from the sushi. Oops!" :worried:



    [​IMG]

    Pumpkin Fig Ravioli with Spiced Winter Fruit Mostarda, Fig Pinot Noir Syrup, and Pumpkin Seed Sage Crumbs





    AP said, "My mom got the pork and enjoyed it but said she normally likes her pork cooked a little more."


    [​IMG]

    Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Goat Cheese Polenta, Roasted Mushrooms, Zinfandel Glaze, Crispy Sage



    AlohaPolynesian said, "We decided to skip on dessert because we were SO FULL. They all looked absolutely amazing, though. I will definitely be back to try some." :thumbsup2

    Hello Everyone!:goodvibes

    We leave one week from tomorrow so I thought I would do our intros and dining plans! Hi there, I'm Jenna! I will be traveling with my DH (Big T) and our DS (TJ :)). We are staying at the Beach Club for 7 blissful days and are on the DDP! My mom, dad and two younger brothers will be joining us on the last half of our trip...thank God for Grandparents! We are also heading to Harry Potter for one afternoon of our trip. Here's a list of our ADR's...

    Disney World December 10 - 16
    1) Be Our Guest
    2) 'Ohana
    3) Kona Cafe (breakfast)
    4) Crystal Palace
    5) La Hacienda de San Angel
    6) California Grill
    7) Teppan Edo
    8) Via Napoli

    Our goal is to also eat at these places...
    1) Beaches and Cream
    2) Three Broomsticks! (WWoHP!)
    3) Sunshine Seasons
    4) Boardwalk Bakery
    5) Giving the free cookies and chocolate milk a try at MVMCP!

    We are huge snackers and we like to enjoy a nice drink (or two :rotfl:) when on vacation so we'll be sure to send some of those along too! We also just received the Fastpass+ experiment in the mail so we will be sure to post some pics of how all of that works too! I hope our live reporting can bring a little more Disney magic to your day just like everyone else's have for us!

    Hi Jenna! :wave2:

    Thanks for posting your introductions and plans here. I'll get the additional info added to your trip (listed in Post #2) and a link to your dining plans. And thank you so much for reminding me that I had forgotten to include cocktails in the Holiday Roulette game. I will again be awarding a Bonus point for each new cocktail (one that we have not yet seen on this thread before)/wine flight/beer flight. So be sure to include your cocktail pics...especially if they are new ones! :thumbsup2

    :cheer2: RECRUITMENT TIME :cheer2:


    ATTN: DECEMBER TRIPPERS I have received confirmation back from everyone on my December Live Reporter list, except for wildelady. Unfortunately, two of the reporters have had to cancel their trips and they were both to be there at the same time. So if anyone is going to Disney World the week of the 17th of December and would be interested in doing live updates while there, please let me know. We could use one more reporter for that week, and maybe two if I don't ever hear back from wildelady because she is also scheduled to be a reporter that week. :worried:



    ATTENTION: JANUARY & FEBRUARY TRIPPERS

    Since it is now December, I am going to begin recruitment for the month of February. So if you have a trip planned during the month of February and are interested in doing live updates (by text or email), please let me know here on the thread or send me a PM.


    Here are the other dates at the end of this month and during January, which we could still use some additional live reporters:



    December 29 - January 1 - We have only one volunteer so far for these dates, so could use 2 or 3 more. :)

    January 22 - January 27 - 1 more reporter needed

    January 28 - January 31 - 2 more reporters needed


    So if your trip to Disney World falls during any of these dates, please consider doing live updates. :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:
