    Next up is an update from Jill (jmm476).


    She and her family were at DHS today, where they had lunch at the...



    Backlot Express



    [​IMG]

    1/3 lb. Angus Onion Straw Bacon Cheeseburger topped with cheddar, vine-ripened tomato, sliced pickle, lettuce and house spread, served with French fries


    Jill said, "We both had the bacon cheeseburger with onion straws. It came with fries and I got the yogurt parfait for dessert. The burger was fine, although the fries were undercooked. I liked the parfait for dessert, although it didn't taste anything like yogurt. It was more like custard."




    Then later they stopped for this treat at...


    Starring Rolls Cafe


    [​IMG]


    Jill said, "Delicious!"




    And then later they got this...


    [​IMG]


    Jill said, "While waiting for the Osborne Lights to start, we got popcorn in this souvenir bucket. DH thinks $12 is too much money, but we'll have the bucket forever! :lmao: He's just mad because I've been shopping to kill time before the lights and our TSM fastpass at 7:00 tonight!"

    Jenna (DisWishes720) then sent us this update...



    [​IMG]



    She said, "We are enjoying a Guiness and Stella draft from England [at Epcot] on our way to Magic Kingdom. That would be the longer "get your child to take a nice nap" route from the Beach Club to Magic Kingdom." ;)

    Our next update was from Jill (jmm476).


    She and her family had dinner tonight back at their resort's ...




    Everything Pop Food Court




    [​IMG]

    Create Your Own Salad with Chicken & Apple Turnover




    Jill said, "We were still kind of full from lunch and snacks, so we grabbed dinner at the Pop food court. I had the Create Your Own Salad, I chose chicken again. The topping choices were slightly different from POR I think. The apple turnover will be breakfast tomorrow."




    2 Point Roulette Bet placed on Resort Group 6 for Everything Pop at Pop Century

    Our final update of the day is from Rarity.



    She said, "Sorry for the lack of updates. We've been in the parks from open to close, and I haven't had the time to get an update in. But here's one for our day at Hollywood Studios on Monday."




    Starring Rolls Cafe



    [​IMG]

    Red Velvet and Butterfinger Cupcakes



    Rarity said, "The breakfast of champions! Both were amazing starts to our cupcake crawl."




    Then their lunch was at ...


    Backlot Express


    [​IMG]

    Boneless Wings with French Fries and Marbled Cheesecake


    Rarity said, "This was my sister's choice. She said the wings had a very slight heat, but nothing that warranted the CM warning us of its spiciness."




    [​IMG]

    Bacon Cheeseburger with French Fries and Marbled Cheesecake



    Rarity said, "It was just your standard burger and fries, but it did its job in giving me energy until our ADR at Boma.
    We both agreed the cheesecake was disappointing. Not horrible, but we wouldn't get it again."

    For some reason I always start reading the live reviews when I'm starving. And then I end up pigging out at lunch time. I think it's a burger or wings today after seeing Rarity's updated!:rotfl2:

    Hummus, Basil Pesto, Cucumber, Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato, and Lettuce on
    Multigrain Bread



    She said, "I had the veggie sandwich (no cheese) on the multigrain, which was vegan, and with fries. The fries were great and so was the sandwich, but it would've been better on a warmer day."





    And for dessert...

    Then tonight, grrrlennyl is attending the MVMCP and had this snack...


    [​IMG]

    Jill (jmm476) was at Epcot today and had lunch around the World, beginning at...


    Tangierine Cafe




    [​IMG]

    Chicken & Lamb Combo Shawarma Platter served with a side of Hummus, Tabouleh and a Tangierine Couscous Salad with fresh Moroccan bread & Baklava for dessert.



    Jill said, "It was so much food and everything on the plate was delicious. DD enjoyed her first tastes of hummus, lamb, and couscous. I even ate most of the baklava and I usually hate nuts in desserts. It was so good!"


    "DH ate at Yorkshire Fish Shop while we met Alice, so I don't have a pic. He was disappointed that it was only 2 small pieces of fish."




    Then from the Italy Wine Shop...


    [​IMG]

    Rosa Regale


    Jill said, "Then we hung out in Italy for a while to watch a street performer and the storyteller. So I popped into the wine store for a glass of Rosa Regale. Mmm...I wish I had some right now."



    Note from jabead: I just bought a couple of bottles of Rosa Regale for the holidays. They were $15.99 each at Meijers, which I thought was a pretty good price. :thumbsup2




    Now back to Jill's update and their next stop at China's...




    Joy of Tea



    [​IMG]

    Jill's DH & a Mango Gingerita (with Vodka and Rum)



    Jill said, "It was yummy, didn't taste much ginger...just mango and rum. It caused a little brain freeze but it was worth it." ;)




    Then it was on to Norway and this treat from the...


    Kringla Bakeri og Cafe



    [​IMG]

    School Bread


    Jill said, "I had to try the school bread. I liked it a lot and DD loved the custard! I ate it slowly over the next 2 hours while we got our VISA picture and did a few more attractions."




    Then their last stop was at Mexico's...


    La Cantina de San Angel




    [​IMG]

    Nachos - corn tortilla chips with ground beef, nacho cheese, fresh tomatoes, jalapenos, black beans, and sour cream


    Jill said, "I love nachos with lots of toppings and these were good. I wouldn't go out of my way to get them again, but it was a decent, healthy dinner."


    3 Point Holiday Roulette Bonus for 2 new cocktails & pic of DH
