    Does anyone know if you can get the avacado margarita to go, or do you have to be dining at one of the Mexico restaurants?

    disneydivamama also sent an update from her breakfast this morning at...


    Cinderella's Royal Table



    disneydivamama chose this...


    [​IMG]

    BAKED QUICHE
    Goat Cheese, Spinach, and Mushroom Quiche with a dollop of Goat Cheese Cream
    served with Rosemary-Lemon Roasted Potatoes tossed with Arugula



    disneydivamama said, "The quiche was decent. The potatoes were cold and hard."





    And her DH had this...



    [​IMG]

    STEAK AND EGGS
    Grilled Filet Mignon on a mild Chipotle-Caramelized Onion Frittata served with Rosemary-Lemon Roasted Potatoes



    disneydivamama said, "He liked the frittata. Said the steak was fine, but nothing spectacular.
    The chef also brought him gluten-free muffins, which was really nice of him!"




    "We know that this meal is more about the location and the princesses, and not the food. I wasn't that impressed with our server. He was not very nice to DD. I know she is still considered an infant (and we don't pay for her, so I am not complaining), but we were not even given the option to order anything, and she wasn't even given anything to drink." :sad2:

    We're almost there! Spending the night outside of Jacksonville, although I'm ready to get up and finish the last few hours to get there already. DH doesn't share my feelings, he wants to sleep! :rotfl:

    Anyway, I almost sent pictures of our chik-fil-a dinner last night, but I was too hungry to arrange it nicely for a picture and I figure most people wouldn't be as excited about it as I was. I think it had been years since we had eaten at one (they don't have them where we live) and I just love their classic sandwich. I can't wait to start eating at WDW, hopefully we'll be having lunch there today.

    The last week has been a little slow here on the live update thread due to illness and other issues experienced by our reporters. However, with 4 new reporters arriving at Disney World today, another tomorrow, and 7 or 8 more in the next couple of weeks, I think that this thread should be pretty active and chocked full of fresh Disney food porn. :thumbsup2

    Thank you to those of you who posted their Dining Plans...they all look great! I hope you all have great trips filled with lots of delicious food and I look forward to receiving your updates.
