    grrrlennyl said, "It was ok. It was coated in chocolate, which I'm not a fan of. I should've gotten the plain chocolate one instead of the cute Xmas one. :lmao: The cake inside was good though. This was my last snack credit."

    :cheer2: IT'S RECRUITMENT TIME! :cheer2:


    First to those of you who have already volunteered to be Live Reporters during your January trips...:thanks: I am currently working on the details of the January Game. ;) As soon as I'm done, I will post the information here and send all of you a PM with my info for sending me your updates.

    Next order of business is my least favorite part of doing this thread, recruiting more reporters. :flower3: Here is the current situation...the month of January is looking pretty good. We could still use 1 or 2 more reporters for these dates though:

    Dec. 28 - Jan. 4
    Jan. 26 - 31


    However, the month of February is a different story. So far we have 1 (maybe 2) volunteer(s) for the entire month. :worried: Therefore, unless we get several more volunteers for February, I will have to put the Live Thread on hiatus, at least temporarily. :guilty: So if you are planning a trip to the World in February, please consider doing at least a few live updates for us. :thumbsup2

    "And our final post is of course a yummy Mickey ice cream bar from just outside Norway for our favorite little guy."

    I put the call out on the February strategy thread so here's hoping someone else wants to jump in.

    The steak sandwich looks like just the picture to convince my dad to eat at BoG instead of Pinocchio's while we're at MK. Yummy!

    Great idea, thanks Angebee! :thumbsup2



    Yes, you can either send your pics (and at least a short description) by text or send them by email. Whichever works best for you is fine with me. :thumbsup2 And yes, still works as listed in post 1.
