    Next up is a double update from AlohaPolynesian.


    She and her mom were at Magic Kingdom today and had this breakfast treat from...


    Main Street Bakery




    [​IMG]



    AlohaPolynesian said, "We had Main Sts Bakery cinnamon rolls which were delicious as always!!
    Long line but it moved quickly."





    Then for lunch they headed to...


    Liberty Tree Tavern





    [​IMG]

    New England Pot Roast . . . Our Tavern Keepers Favorite
    Braised Beef in a Cabernet Wine and Mushroom Sauce served with Mashed Potatoes and Garden Vegetables




    AlohaPolynesian said, "LTT lunch was great! Very quick. Mom had pot roast and said it was "melt in your mouth" delicious.
    We were still full from the cinnamon rolls so both of us only ate half of our lunches!"







    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Burger
    House-made Potato Quinoa Vegan Patty topped with a fresh Vegan Tofu-Tzatziki Sauce with Sweet Potato Fries




    AP said, "I had the vegetarian burger which our server informed me was actually vegan! It was really wonderful.

    And then our last update for today was from disneydivamama.


    She and her family were at Downtown Disney and dined at...




    Wolfgang Puck Express



    [​IMG]

    Chicken and Mashed Potatoes



    disneydivamama said, "This was one of the two gluten-free options for DH. He found it disappointing.
    The chicken was dry and the potatoes tasted like they were made from a box."






    [​IMG]

    Macaroni & Cheese



    ddm said, "This looks gross, but DD's mac 'n cheese was awesome!"




    [​IMG]

    Chicken Aioli Sandwich with mozzarella cheese, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, and aioli & herb-season french fries



    ddm said, "I loved it. Huge! I could only eat 1/2.





    Then for dessert, they had...



    [​IMG]

    Vanilla Bean Cheesecake



    ddm said, "Too full for more than a bite." :sad2:




    "But we got these from Babycakes for later!" :thumbsup2

    We received an update from AlohaPolynesian last night after the deadline, so it's now considered part of today's updates.


    She and her mom were at Epcot last night and had dinner at...




    Rose & Crown



    [​IMG]



    AlohaPolynesian said, "We had an awesome dinner at Rose and Crown! :thumbsup2 I had the Vegetable Pie, and my mom got the fish and chips. I also ordered a bowl of the seasonal soup which is currently butternut squash. Unfortunately I forgot to ask if there was meat in it and there turned out to be a few chunks of ham. I just picked them out and ate the soup anyway and it was really yummy."

    "We both really enjoyed our meal, and we got a seat on the patio and had an awesome view for Illuminations! We were right under a heat lamp though and the glowing red light made it impossible to take pix of the food."






    [​IMG]

    English Rose
    Beefeater Gin, apricot brandy, sweet vermouth, pineapple, orange & cranberry juice. Served in a souvenir cup.




    AlohaPolynesian said, "I've included a photo of my cocktail - English Rose - so you can see what I mean.
    The English Rose is one of the tastiest drinks at Disney and I have one every time I go to Epcot!"






    And then for the final pic of this update (the last of her trip)...



    [​IMG]


    AlohaPolynesian said, "I also included a photo of me with my new boyfriend, Gaston. Hope you like it!!"

    Note from jabead: I do like it, AP! It was a great finale to your updates. :thumbsup2

    Sadly though, according to the rules of the Roulette game, because this R & C update does not include at least one entree pic it does not qualify as a bet placed. However, the new cocktail and the pic she sent of herself do qualify for Bonus points! :thumbsup2

    Our First Update of the Day was sent by Jess (ILikeWaffles).


    Jess said, "Sorry for the lack of updates the last couple of days. I came down with the same thing that Pete had a few days ago, so I stayed in bed for a day or so. Last night, Pete and I went to the Boardwalk to check out the Christmas decorations."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    Then Jess said, "We stopped at the Boardwalk Bakery and picked up an Oreo Bon Bon Cupcake. Pete really liked it, especially the soft frosting. I didn't care for it, but I think my taste is a little off right now from being sick (because I hated everything from start to finish at 'Ohana last night)." :sad2:

    Then disneydivamama & family had Mexican food again for dinner, this time at Epcot's...


    La Hacienda de San Angel



    She started with this cocktail...


    [​IMG]

    Avocado Margarita
    El Mayor premium silver tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, agave nectar and fresh lime juice, served frozen with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim



    disneydivamama said, "This was good. I liked the subtle flavors. Here's the thing though. I am not a heavy drinker at all. Tequila usually gets me quick. I felt nothing from this drink!" :confused3





    For her entree, ddm chose...



    [​IMG]

    Tacos de Camarones
    Fried shrimp, chipotle-lime aioli, cabbage, lime and salsa verde, all served over flour tortillas



    disneydivamama said, "They were fine. Nothing great. I ended up eating the shrimp out of a couple of them."



    Her DH chose this for his entree...



    [​IMG]



    ddm said, "DH had the short ribs. He thought it was dry...it had definitely been sitting out waiting to be served under the heat lamp. Not something I would have ever paid $26.00 for typically."




    Then for dessert, disneydivamama chose this...


    [​IMG]

    Empanada de Manzana
    Puff pastry filled with sauteed caramel apples, served with dulce de leche ice cream and cajeta (caramel sauce)




    ddm said, "I liked the ice cream, but for me, the pastry wasn't worth the calories!" :sad2:




    Her DH had this for his dessert...


    [​IMG]



    disneydivamama said, "He enjoyed it; liked the subtle heat and the combination of flavors."



    disneydivamama's overall comments, "My honest opinion of the place? I would never pay out of pocket for it. WAY overpriced. It was obvious that our food had bee pre-prepared and was waiting on the warmer. We ordered, I took DD to the restroom, and our food was waiting for us when we returned. :eek: Our family knows good Mexican food...at about 1/3 of the price." ;)

    Since we haven't yet received any updates from our current live reporters today, I'm going to post some of the updates which Gina (Gina99) emailed to me from home yesterday. As you may recall, Gina and her family took their first trip to Disney World from 11/24 - 12/1 and she emailed some live updates to us during the first few days of her trip. However, being her first trip to Disney World, she became a bit overwhelmed with it all. But now that she is home, Gina was able to send us all of her great updates.

    So without further ado, let's bring on the food. :thumbsup2



    This first update is from 11/27 at the Polynesian Resort's...


    'Ohana Lilo and Stitch Best Friends Character Breakfast



    [​IMG]


    Gina said, "We started out with the pineapple coconut sweet bread and you can see my boys ripped in to it as soon as they brought it to the table. ;)




    [​IMG]


    Gina said, "We also had a fruit tray and some guava juice cocktail."





    [​IMG]


    Gina said, "Then we had our big tray of eggs, sausages, biscuits, bacon, and potatoes.
    The Mickey waffles were served separately."

    "The big win with this breakfast was it being served family-style. I found this method really worked for our family with 2 young children. We had the selection of a buffet but didn't have to keep the kids entertained while grabbing plates!
    It was a win win!" :thumbsup2
