    Barb - I am beyond grateful and so honored that you thought of us in this special way. When I sent you the PM I hadn't been on the boards most of the day since we were getting prepared to fly to Tx.

    Thank you for remembering that special day for me. I am so very glad that you were able to spend time with your son on his birthday and celebrate with your family.:hug:

    Your thoughts and prayers for those suffering greater loss than I can ever imagine in CT are so profoundly appreciated.

    Next we have grrrlennyl's final updates.



    The first is from her early lunch at Animal Kingdom's...




    Tusker House



    [​IMG]



    grrrlennyl said, "This was the best vegan meal of my trip. The chef was very nice and took me on a tour of the buffet. There were tons of things that I could eat and everything was good. I had the something (raspberry?) lemonade though, and that had a pretty strong fake sweetener taste."

    Next grrrlennyl said, "We headed to Magic Kingdom later that day and I took a picture of the Christmas tree."


    [​IMG]




    Then they had dinner at...


    Be our Guest



    She said, "It was so good, although nothing I got was vegan. I had the Cornish hen, which was very tasty. I had the all-natural fruit punch and my partner had the lemonade, and they were both very good. Not sure if the foam on them was vegan."





    "I only took pictures of the napkin..."



    [​IMG]




    "My dessert..."


    [​IMG]

    Triple Chocolate Cupcake - chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse filling, and chocolate ganache


    "This was yummy."




    "And The Grey Stuff..."


    [​IMG]


    "It was delicious."




    "Oh, and here's the stained glass."


    [​IMG]


    grrrlennyl said, "We were in the ballroom and the theming was amazing. It was pretty dark in there (hence the limited pictures), so I can only imagine how dark the West Wing is."

    [​IMG]

    Cheese Pizza, Salad, Root Beer, and Holiday Gingerbread Cupcake


    She said, "This was another non-vegan meal. I took the cheese off the pizza and tried to eat around the cheese in the salad.
    This was a good, solid meal."

    grrrlennyl's last table service meal was at Magic Kingdom's...


    Cinderella's Royal Table



    [​IMG]

    Hearty Tomato Risotto with sauteed seasonal vegetables and roasted tomatoes topped with a salad of herbs and garnished with a splash of aged balsamic


    grrrlennyl said, "This was so good! A bit tomato-y, but the salad on top (with edible flowers) cut that heaviness.
    I had the lemon sorbet with blueberries, which was good, but not remarkable."
