    Another vote here for Christmas at Barb's house next year! I'm very impressed. If I tried something like that, my family would revolt...

    Thank you all for your kind words! :goodvibes And you are all most definitely invited to the 4th Annual Christmas Around the World Party. Believe me, I made enough food to feed all of you...and your families too. :lmao:





    Hi Donald! :banana:

    It's so great to see your name again here. It seems like forever! :worried: But of course, as a mother of a college student, I totally understand.
    And I of course I would love to have you contribute to the live thread! :thumbsup2

    Happy New Year to all on this thread but especially Barb!

    Have been refusing to post on disboards as for the first time in nine years I have no future trip planned but I can't help myself - still been checking in every day to see what scrummy food everyone else is enjoying.

    Here's to a lottery win in 2013 and a last minute trip to WDW :)

    Sorry I dropped off the map. We ended up trading family sickness ( one version was fever, cough, congestion; the other was intestinal) for much of the trip. We still had fun, but our pace and plans got adjusted, and sadly, photos of food got lost in the shuffle. I apologize profusely. My headline food news: Artist's Point. I was afraid the DS's (10 and 12) would not find much to eat, but they LOVED it! In fact the 10 year old said "I wish I had another hand so I could give it THREE thumbs up." :rotfl2:


    Anyway...sorry again. I feel badly I let you all down. Happy New Year!

    All I can say is two weeks from tonight I will be at WDW! I'm hoping to go to the Poly to get a Lapu Lapu with our good friends but I don't know? And I'm not sure where we will be eating but I can't wait! ;)

    Sorry I'm a little late tonight, but I do have several great updates for your viewing pleasure. :thumbsup2


    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by our third reporter who arrived at Disney World yesterday, glasslipper.



    Her first meal yesterday at Disney World was from...


    Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory



    [​IMG]

    Fried Chicken Meal

    glasslipper said, "DH enjoyed it."





    [​IMG]

    Fish Dinner


    glasslipper said, "I liked it but I didn't like the beans."





    [​IMG]

    Jambalaya


    "This was very good!"




    Then for their dessert, they had...



    [​IMG]

    Beignets


    "Very good!"




    [​IMG]


    "DH had ice cream for dessert, he liked it but they gave him so much!"




    Then glasslipper said, "We went to Magic Kingdom last night and had a Mickey pretzel as a snack!
    It was very good and very cute!"

    Next up is a breakfast update from Joyce (Jersette).


    1900 PARK FARE
    Character Breakfast



    [​IMG]

    First Plate: Biscuits & Gravy, Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Lobster Benedict, Hash Browns, Bagel w/ Boursin cheese, and Ham.




    [​IMG]

    Second Plate: More Potatoes (never met one I didn't like ;) ), Watermelon, Bacon, and a Mickey Waffle




    Joyce said, "Even thought the Benedict was more essence of lobster and the Mad Hatter was clearly at the end of his shift, the food was solid, especially the Boursin cheese on the bagel. And we adored Alice.
    Almost made up for the ongoing drama with Katy's lost luggage." :worried:
