    Next is a lunch update sent to us by JessiLynn015.



    She said, "We only had 1 meal yesterday due to such a large late lunch, so this morning we were hungry!!
    We decided to head to Downtown Disney and fill up at Wolfgang Puck Express."



    Wolfgang Puck Express




    [​IMG]

    Spicy Chicken Pizza - Chili oil, grilled chicken, red & yellow peppers, roma tomatoes, leeks, and cilantro


    JessiLynn said, 'Mom had the spicy chicken pizza. As you can tell, we were hungry because we grabbed a piece as soon as she set it on the table. It was great! I loved the cilantro."




    [​IMG]

    Rotisserie Turkey Club Sandwich with Avocado, bacon, red onion, plum tomatoes, romaine, remoulade and french fries


    JessiLynn said, "I had the turkey club. This was also delicious.
    It had some kind of avocado mayo on it that gave it a great flavor."






    [​IMG]

    Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with peas, bacon and parmesan cheese


    JessiLynn said, "DH had the chicken Alfredo. He didn't like the cheese flavor that was in it, but he managed to eat the entire plate." ;)





    [​IMG]

    Creme Brulee & Vanilla Bean Cheesecake


    JessiLynn said, "I had the crème brûlée and LOVED it! It was great and I would say better than the one I had at Coral Reef. Mom & DH had the cheesecake and both loved it. They agreed its the perfect size after having such a large meal." :thumbsup2

    Next we have an update from Rarity.


    On Wednesday she and her sister were at Epcot and dined at...




    Le Cellier




    [​IMG]

    Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon
    Le Cellier “Signature Dish” served with Wild Mushroom Risotto and White Truffle Butter Sauce



    Rarity said, "We both had the filet. This was our first time at Le Cellier, and it did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were so tender."




    Then for their desserts, they chose...



    [​IMG]

    Canadian Chocolate "Moose"





    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Pecan Pie on the Rocks



    Rarity said, "My sister had the Chocolate Moose, and they were sweet enough to add a candle to it. She's been saying for months she couldn't wait to eat its face, and she did enjoy it, except for whatever the tongue was made of. I had the Pecan Pie on the Rocks. It was dubbed "the neverending dessert" by our server, and he wasn't kidding. I love dessert and can put away some food, but I just couldn't finish it. It was delicious, though!"

    And our last update of the day was sent by JessiLynn015.



    She and her DH got to try the LeFou's Brew today at...




    Gaston's Tavern



    [​IMG]

    LeFou' Brew


    JessiLynn said, "We loved the juice, but the topping was a bit too sour for our liking.




    Then at dinner her DH had a different kind of brew at Epcot's...



    Biegarten


    [​IMG]

    Oktoberfest Beer



    JessiLynn said, We had dinner at Biergarten tonight! Sadly, there we no booths and I couldn't bring the stroller in, so I had to hold Kesler throughout the dinner and it made it difficult to get different pictures."

    "DH did happen to snap a pic of his Liter of Oktoberfest. He loved it! As for the meal, mom and DH really enjoyed it. I'm not a big fan of the types of foods they had there so it's not somewhere I'd go again. The service and entertainment were great, though!"

    hello everyone! i'm working a little over a half day & then we are off to disney to celebrate emme. i finalized our ADR's just last night & need to load up the car during my lunch break. :rotfl:

    emme was rushed to the ER & hospitalized in the PICU at wolfson's childrens hospital on 12/6/11 for unexplained seizures. she stopped breathing after her seizure ended & my brother (who is a sgt in the army & a combat medic) started chest compressions on her while i called 911. i'm a nurse & i've seen a lot of heartbreaking situations but this was probably the worst moment of my life.

    we were in the PICU for 8 days, 7 nights. she randomly had a seizure at our house & then another one in the ER. the doctors ran every test on her, including a spinal tap & they could not figure out why she was having seizures.

    she has a neurologist we visit every 3 months & thus far, we have been seizure free since 12/6/11 & this is worth celebrating. :cool1:

    [​IMG]
    what a difference a year makes!

    not trying to be a debbie downer with this post but we have lots of celebrating to do during this trip. :cheer2:

    And now for our First Update of the Day, which was sent by grrrlennyl.



    She and her partner had dinner last night at...




    Landscapes of Flavor



    [​IMG]

    Create Your Own Pasta with chicken (served on the side)


    grrrlennyl said, "We shared this. It was linguini (I think they called it spaghetti) with a decently spiced marinara sauce, sundried tomatoes, and peppers. That little bowl is the chicken that my partner got on the side. The pasta was vegan, except for the bowl of chicken. The bread was pretty good, but we shared and I wish we'd had another piece."




    [​IMG]


    grrrlennyl said, "These are the cupcakes my partner got for our dessert. I thought they were Babycakes, but they were actually just Disney ones. Not vegan, but the yellow and chocolate were both good. My partner said the carrot cake was good. We haven't tried the red velvet yet."



    Then this morning grrrlennyl is at Magic Kingdom and had this snack from...


    Aloha Isle



    [​IMG]

    Pineapple Dole Whip Float


    grrrlennyl said, "Breakfast of champions. Not vegan, but good for lactose-intolerant folks, I've heard." :thumbsup2

    The next update was again from grrrlennyl.


    Her lunch today was at Magic Kingdom's...



    Tortuga Tavern



    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Burrito, Hot Tea, & Chocolate Cake



    grrrlennyl said, "The burrito and hot tea, both vegan. Chocolate cake, not vegan. The burrito was so full of rice and beans that I didn't know if I could fit any toppings in it. Ha! It was good. As usual. It's such a good, filling vegan option and great for picky eaters because you put whatever you want on it. The cake was pretty good. The frosting was obviously canned, but the cake was really moist. It went well with my tea."

    She and her family were at Magic Kingdom today and had lunch at...

    Chicken Breast Nuggets with French Fries and Chocolate Cake


    JessiLynn said, "DH had the chicken breast nuggets with fries and chocolate cake. It didn't fill him up so I have him my fries. He liked it though."

    The next update was sent to us by grrrlennyl.


    She is still at Magic Kingdom this evening and had dinner at...



    Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe


    [​IMG]

    Vegetarian Burger served with French fries and apple slices



    grrrlennyl said, "I had the veggie burger with lots of pickles, lettuce, and ketchup from the toppings bar. Plus fries, a Sprite, and apple slices (as my dessert)...all vegan, but maybe not the bun. I don't know if they changed the veggie burgers or if I was just not as hungry as I was last year, but this was not as good as I remember it. Whomp!" :worried:

    Though we received many more updates yesterday from our Disney World reporters, I will be honest with you and say that last night I just didn't feel like posting them. After hearing about the senseless tragedy which occurred in Connecticut, I had no words...all seemed woefully inadequate. So I decided to let the Live thread remain silent for the evening and instead spend the time enjoying the company of my family, including all three of my children.

    I will now attempt to get caught up with the updates, but today happens to be my baby boy's 17th birthday so I will not make you any promises. My thoughts this morning are also with another mom and her "baby boy", who is being deployed to Afghanistan today.




    [​IMG]

    Chad and Brenda (aka emmysmommy)




    I pray for Chad's safety and quick return to those who love him, as well as for all of our troops serving their country overseas. And for the heartbroken families of Connecticut, may God give you the strength to get through the difficult days ahead.

    The portions were a lot smaller than last time we ate here. I'm still hungry!"




    And so then the next pic emmebear sent was from Publix... :lmao:
