    I hope you got something wonderful quietgirl. Those crab-shrimp cakes and fish tacos at the Wave looked so awesome.

    I think I have now received all the missing pics, so let's start out this evening with quietgirl's updates.



    quietgirl said, "So, we were in the MK today, and decided to have BoG for lunch again. We got in line about 11:30 today, and it took us about 20 min to get in. We used the automated system to order and it was really easy, but there was someone to help us too."



    "Today I had the steak sandwich..."



    [​IMG]

    Grilled Steak Sandwich with garlic butter spread and pommes frites





    [​IMG]

    An inside view


    "This was VERY good, although a little dry. I came up with the idea at the end to use some of DGF's onion soup as a dip, and that really enhanced the flavor. I thought the fries were nice and fresh, good and crispy. I think I liked the pork I had the other day better, but this is a slightly lighter option."





    [​IMG]

    Potato Leek Soup






    [​IMG]

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


    "I had the potato soup and chocolate brownie again (just as yummy today!), and DGF had the French onion soup and tuna nicoise salad again, but today she also had the strawberry cream cheese cupcake."





    [​IMG]

    Tuna Nicoise Salad - warm seared tuna steak with chilled green beans, potatoes, olives, roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, and hard boiled eggs






    [​IMG]

    French Onion Soup





    [​IMG]

    Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake - vanilla sponge cake, strawberry mousse filling, and cream cheese icing


    "She liked this, but said it was VERY sweet, and very rich."



    quietgirl said, "We felt like bog was just as good today as it was Friday, and it seemed a little less crowded today as well." :thumbsup2






    Then quietgirl also sent us several menu pics from around Magic Kingdom...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Liberty Square Market





    [​IMG]

    Sunshine Tree Terrace




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    So sorry Christina! :guilty:


    Therefore, let me try this again...



    Since we have received Christina's final update of her trip, it's now time to say...




    Thanks so much for being a Live Reporter...Great Job!!! :thanks:

    Now let's start with the updates sent to us today, the first of which was from quietgirl.


    She said, "For dinner Tues. night, we decided to head down to the food court since it was so good the night before."




    Riverside Mill



    DGF got the build your own pasta again...


    [​IMG]




    "And I went with ham..."


    [​IMG]

    Ham with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Corn, and Cornbread


    "This was really good, and had a pineapple glaze that came on the side. I'm not a huge pineapple fan, but this was good, a little sweet. The ham itself was fantastic though. I also enjoyed the corn and potatoes, and the cornbread was great- again, much better than I expected from a food court."

    Next in this morning was an update from Amanda (MissPrice).


    She and her DH were at Epcot last night and had dinner at...




    Via Napoli





    First a menu pic...


    [​IMG]





    They started with...


    [​IMG]

    Calamari Fritti - corn-crusted rings served with spicy tomato sauce





    [​IMG]

    Insalata de Cesare - the classic Caesar salad with chicken




    [​IMG]

    Quattro Formaggi - Four cheese pizza with mozzarella, parmesan, fontina, provolone



    Amanda said, "Everything was excellent except my salad. The chicken was cold and pre-cooked (not what I was expecting for $22). I should have gotten pizza but I wanted something light."




    Then for a snack, they got this treat from Karamell Kuche...


    [​IMG]

    Chocolate-Caramel Peanut Pretzel



    Amanda said, "This was quite delicious!" :thumbsup2

    And then 5 minutes later we received an update from Joyce (Jersette).


    Their last Disney dinner was at Epcot's...




    Garden Grill



    Their meal was served family-style, and began with...



    [​IMG]

    Harvest-inspired Farmer's Salad


    Joyce said, "First we were brought salad with eggs and bacon and a light Southwestern ranch dressing. I had two helpings...it was really good!"




    [​IMG]

    Basket of Warm Rolls with Maple Butter





    [​IMG]


    "We then got the main platters. Turkey, tilapia, dressing, smashed potatoes, beef. I thought the turkey and beef were the best. The fish had an aggressive spicing on it that I didn't care for."




    [​IMG]


    "Best of all, they brought the kids' platter too, and the "kids" at my table were in heaven! David had seconds on the sweet potato fries and mac and cheese. I haven't seen him eat this much...ever!" :lmao:




    "We also got a very tasty berry upside down cake...the picture did not come out well." :guilty:





    [​IMG]


    "We all agreed this was our favorite meal of the trip! :thumbsup2 The characters were cute, the food was good. And we had the BEST server ever!!! Patrick told us terrible Disney jokes, teased Katy about stealing the bacon from the salad, and just was a blast. We laughed as much as we ate."

    Then we received another update from DonaldDoleWhip. :thumbsup2



    This one was from his meal at...



    Landscapes of Flavor




    [​IMG]

    Mongolian Grill Fish with multigrain rice, roasted cauliflower, and Naan bread



    DDW said, "Everything tasted great. The fish was cooked to order, which took 10 minutes but it was worth the wait (and they give you a pager so you don't have to stand around)."




    "Here are some pics of the Christmas tree at AoA..."

    Next in was an update from Robin (ciera321).


    She and her family had an early lunch today at...



    Be our Guest



    [​IMG]

    Restaurant Entrance





    Robin said, "I couldn't wait to try this restaurant and I loved it. I chose the quiche, which after a little salt, it tasted very good. The crust was flaky and buttery and the veggie filling was very nice. The salad was ok, but I'm pretty picky about salads."



    [​IMG]

    Vegetable Quiche with Mushrooms, Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Onion and Chives served with a Lettuce Salad with a Champagne Vinaigrette






    "Tim had the turkey sandwich and we both thought it was very good. The mustard sauce had a great flavor and made the sandwich. The fries were just fries."




    [​IMG]

    Carved Turkey Sandwich served on a warm baguette with Dijon mayonnaise and Pomme Frites






    "Alex had the Croque Monsieur sandwich and said it was pretty good. He doesn't care for whole grain bread, so this might have been the issue. It looked pretty good to me."




    [​IMG]




    "Desserts are what were the standouts for me. I had the chocolate cupcake and thought it was perfect. Tender cake, creamy filling and perfect icing. It made me... :) "



    [​IMG]

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


    "Alex had this, too, and agreed!" :thumbsup2





    "Tim loved the lemon-raspberry cream puff. Not a crumb left, and he's not a sweets guy."


    [​IMG]

    Gluten Free & No Sugar Added: Lemon-raspberry cream puff filled with lemon custard





    "And to end the lunch review, here we are trying out Gaston's chair at his tavern. Love the new Fantasyland!!!"


    [​IMG]

    Then Robin & family headed to the Contemporary Resort tonight to have dinner at...



    [​IMG]



    Robin said, "Tonight we tried The Wave for the first time. I really wish we would have tried it sooner, it was great!" :thumbsup2




    First a pic of the (empty) dining room...



    [​IMG]




    And then a couple of menu pics...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    "We started with a virgin strawberry daiquiri and a virgin pina colada...perfection!"


    [​IMG]


    "Alex and I always get something like these when they are allowed as the non-alcoholic beverage on the DDP."




    [​IMG]

    Locally-sourced Thompson Farms Pork Tenderloin in an Apple-Brine on Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Polenta with Vegetables of the Moment



    Robin said, "I chose the pork tenderloin. It was delicious and perfectly cooked."






    [​IMG]

    Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Goji Berry-Red Wine Reduction, Three-Potato Hash, and Locally-sourced Butternut Squash Risotto


    "Tim and Alex both had the beef tenderloin. The three-potato hash had purple, sweet, and Yukon golds.
    Both said they loved it."






    Then Robin said, "The service was excellent and very knowledgeable about every menu item. For dessert, they offer 4 different trios."


    [​IMG]





    "Alex and I chose the Creamy Indulgence option, and Tim the American Flavors. The American is the one on top."


    [​IMG]


    "Mississippi Mud Pie, Banana cake, and apple cake...all were really good. The creamy version, however, was the true winner. It was absolutely wonderful. New York cheesecake with apple compote, butterscotch creme brulee, and chocolate mousse. Oh my goodness delicious!!!!! We will be going back!" :thumbsup2

    Then Amanda (MissPrice) sent this update this evening...


    Amanda said, "We had breakfast at Gaston's Tavern this morning. We shared the cinnamon roll. It was tasty, not overly sweet with a nice maple flavored icing."


    [​IMG]





    Pecos Bill's



    "Then lunch was at Pecos Bill's. We were originally supposed to go to Coral Reef today, but decided to cancel.
    DH got the barbecue pork sandwich with fries."



    [​IMG]





    "I had the taco salad. Love all the fixings. It was good. The shell had a lot of flavor."


    [​IMG]





    "We also shared a side of chili cheese fries."


    [​IMG]






    Then later Amanda had this snack...



    [​IMG]

    Mickey Red Velvet Cake Pop


    Amanda said, "OMG, this thing was delicious! The head is red velvet cake, the ears are marshmallow, and it's covered in white chocolate. It exceeded my expectations."





    Amanda and her DH had dinner tonight back at their resort's Signature restaurant...



    JIKO




    [​IMG]

    Artisanal Cheese Selection - Five tasting portions with accompaniments from around the world


    Amanda said, "We started with the cheese plate. The smoked blue cheese was my favorite.
    DH enjoyed the sheep's milk cheese."






    [​IMG]

    Chermoula-roasted Nigerian Prawns - English pea Nage and saffron rice with orange and olive salad


    "I had the prawns with the heads on. The heads were somewhat intimidating. :lmao: The meat of the prawns was really good.
    It reminded me a bit of lobster."






    And last Amanda said, "We shared this for dessert..."


    [​IMG]

    Sweet Potato Bread Pudding

    I have one last update to post this morning that was sent to us last night by quietgirl.

    She had lunch yesterday at Magic Kingdom's...



    Columbia Harbour House




    She said, "We sat upstairs overlooking the Rapunzel bathroom construction.
    The windows were covered, but it was easily pushed aside." ;)



    [​IMG]




    "I actually was beginning to feel like a construction site photographer, since earlier in the day I had taken pics of the work on the dwarves mine train..."




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "But back to CHH...

    We ate lunch about 11:15, just as a small storm came up. I got the chicken breast nuggets..."



    [​IMG]






    And DGF got the tuna sandwich, but substituted fries for the chips...



    [​IMG]





    "And we both got the chocolate cake."


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    "This is an old standby for us, and we enjoyed it as always. I was a little disappointed though, 'cause they no longer have packs of ranch dressing out. I have always used that for my chicken. I asked 2 different people that worked there, and was sent to 2 different places... Never found any ranch :( I just used BBQ sauce."





    "We stopped by the Main Street Confectionery on the way out for a break,



    [​IMG]





    "And got a free Rice Krispy treat sample!!"



    [​IMG]


    "Score!! When did they start that??"





    "And in case you're wondering, Christmas decorations are still up at the MK..."




    [​IMG]

    Our next update was a short but informative non-food related update from Robin (ciera321).



    Robin said, "Off the topic of food for a minute...but the new entrance/ticket devices are a HUGE improvement over the old ones that you insert your tickets into. With these wonderful devices, you hold your "Key to the Kingdom" card up to the Mickey head, place you finger in the pad on the right and when it turns green, you're in. There are generally 2 sets per line.
    This is GREAT!" :thumbsup2

    Then we received our final update from Joyce (Jersette).


    She, Katy, and David had lunch yesterday at...




    Rainforest Cafe




    [​IMG]

    PASTALAYA
    Shrimp, sautéed chicken, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and Andouille sausage tossed in a hot and spicy Cajun sauce and served over linguini.
    Only for the truly adventurous! ;)




    Joyce said, "David had their version of Jambalaya...the server said it was really spicy, but David thought it just had a nice heat. He liked this."





    [​IMG]

    RUMBLE in the JUNGLE TURKEY WRAP
    Shaved turkey breast, Roma tomatoes, crisp bacon and Romaine lettuce tossed with Caesar dressing,
    wrapped in a flour tortilla and served with chips and coleslaw.



    "Katy had the HUGE turkey wrap. She enjoyed it, but could only finish half."




    [​IMG]

    CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN
    Breaded chicken breast fried golden brown and served with red skinned garlic mashed potatoes and country gravy.



    "This was my chicken. It was fine, but I am just not a fan of Rainforest...it's all about the upsell. (And our server literally said each of our entrees was her favorite!!! :rolleyes: ) Disney restaurants seem more about the patron, if that makes any sense."



    "We had a fantastic time and we all agreed staying onsite with a dining plan was so much fun!! Thanks for letting me post my often crummy pics, Barb. I enjoyed being a part of the live report community!"
