    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    "Family Style" House Salad
    with leaf lettuces, roasted red peppers, marinated mushrooms, olives, peperonicini, and red wine vinaigrette



    butiflfeet said, "To start, we shared the house salad. This had a very nice dressing and was lightly dressed. We really enjoyed the peppers in it."




    Then they all shared these...


    [​IMG]

    Quattro Formaggi - 4-cheese pizza with mozzarella, parmesan, fontina, and provolone cheeses





    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Candele - candle stick pasta with sausage ragu, polpettine meatballs, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses



    "Also my mom ordered a vegetable pizza without cheese (no pic). These all were very good. I think the pasta won for our favorite though. The meatballs in it were excellent."

    Next a cocktail update from butiflfeet.



    First from the Rose & Crown Pub...




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Leaping Leprechaun (in back) - Myers's Platinum rum, Skyy Vodka, Jameson Irish whiskey, melon liqueur and sweet-and-sour topped with Sprite.

    & English Rose Beefeater Gin, apricot brandy, sweet vermouth, pineapple, orange & cranberry juice.




    "We stopped at Rose & Crown for a cool drink in the afternoon. We split the Leaping Leprechaun and the English Rose. They were both very fruity and what we call "ninja" drinks because they definitely packed much more punch than what we tasted." ;)





    Then from the Tangierine Cafe...



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Casablanca Coffee (with vanilla liqueur) & Tangierine Cocktail -combination of their 3 slush drinks (strawberry, pina colada and tangerine), topped with Bols flavored liqueurs


    "I really liked the coffee with the vanilla liqueur. It was a good pick me up to get through the rest of the day."

    Hmm....seeing all the adult beverages being consumed at Epcot makes me think I should do that more there. :) DBF isn't a drinker, so I usually don't, but maybe this trip I will have to try one..or two....or...well, you get it.

    Next we have another of Amanda's (MissPrice) final updates.


    This one from her dinner Saturday night at the Polynesian Resort's...




    'OHANA




    [​IMG]

    'Ohana Welcome (Pineapple-Coconut) Bread




    [​IMG]

    Mixed Greens with Honey-Lime Dressing





    [​IMG]

    Peanut Sauce


    Amanda said, "Apparently this is new. They used to bring out several sauces, now just one. It reminde me of traditional thai peanut sauce."





    [​IMG]

    Pork Potstickers and Honey Coriander Chicken Wings


    Amanda said, "The potstickers were Dan's favorite, so we ordered an extra plate of them."




    [​IMG]

    Lo Mein Noodles & Stir-fried Vegetables




    [​IMG]

    Bread Pudding served a la mode with Bananas and Caramel Sauce



    Amanda said, "We made sure to save room for dessert and we were glad we did. The sauce was so delicious. We were very happy with both the food and service. This was our second favorite meal of the trip...Be our Guest is #1."

    Yipppeeee! More food, more updates! Love it!:cool1:

    I'm so excited that in just over a week I will be sending my own live reports!!

    I cant ever imagine being as good as most of the Disers who have participated, but I'm still looking forward to throwing in my 2 cents!

    Oh and just an fyi, my ticker is wrong! I created it before I added extra days to our trip and I've honestly just been too lazy to go back and re-do it. We actually arrive a week from Friday but I'm counting an extra day because we are leaving home next Thursday evening to spend the night by the airport due to an early morning depature. Why leave home at 4:15 am when you can head out two hours later (with a free breakfast) from an airport hotel you get to stay in for free because we have so many reward points!

    Next is another update from butiflfeet.


    This one is from her Monday night dinner at...



    TOKYO DINING



    She said, "We had been wanting to try this place for years.

    Here's the menu and a pic of the green tea martini that DSis and I had."




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    Green Tea Martini - Honey infused Matcha green tea, shochu green tea vodka.


    "This was no ninja! It was strong from the start but still had the green tea flavor we were looking for.
    It was a bit like a sweet tea with vodka." ;)





    [​IMG]

    Miso Soup - traditional soybean paste soup with wakame and green onion





    [​IMG]

    Volcano Roll - California Roll with spicy chili mayonnaise sauce, topped with sashimi tuna, salmon, yellowtail, masago and Tempura Crunch



    "Our starters were a cup of miso soup for me and DH and DSis shared a volcano roll. I loved the soup.
    It was very savory. The volcano roll disappeared very quickly, so that was a good choice too."





    [​IMG]

    Chicken Katsu - Panko crusted boneless breast chicken lightly fried


    "For my main, I had the Chicken Katsu, which is a lightly fried chicken breast. It was very moist and tender and with the teriyaki dipping sauce it was wonderful."






    [​IMG]

    Shibuya - tempura fried shrimp and chicken


    "DH and DSis both had the Shibuya, which was tempura chicken and shrimp. They were in awe of how tender these both were. The sides that came with our dishes were steamed white rice, cucumber sesame salad, and a crab noodle salad.
    We really enjoyed the complex and contrasting flavors here. We will be coming back!"

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tomato Bisque




    [​IMG]

    Creamy Chicken Soup


    "DH and I started with soup. I had the tomato bisque and he had the creamy chicken. I enjoyed my soup. It was nice and tomatoey with a bit of garlic. He liked his too but it was a touch salty."

    [​IMG]

    Wait a minute - the Tonga Toast at Captain Cook's now comes with the strawberry sauce?! That's great news IMO, since the strawberry sauce has always been a deal breaker for me (when I last got it at CC several years ago, the sauce wasn't included). Now if only we had another WDW trip on the horizon :laughing:

    Now for our First Update of the Day from butiflfeet.



    She enjoyed these snacks at Magic Kingdom yesterday...



    [​IMG]

    From Aloha Isle: Dole Whip Floats


    butiflfeet said, "We had dole whip floats, one with pineapple and the other with pineapple vanilla swirl. These were the first dole whip floats were ever had and we loved them. So much better than just the dole whip alone!" :thumbsup2





    [​IMG]

    From Gaston's Tavern: Pork Shank



    "Later we went back to Gaston's Tavern for a pork shank. This was very flavorful but also messy. Really good overall."

    I love O'hana, but I'm really unsure about the mixed veggies. Broccoli is one of my favorites, so mixing it with my hated string beans seems like a mistake!

    The peanut sauce was my favorite, but I also enjoyed the sweet and sour!

    The next update came in this morning by email at about the same time as butiflfeet sent her's by text, so I'm also awarding Lauren (Giselle22) the First Update of the Day point.


    She and her group had dinner last night at the Wilderness Lodge's...



    Whispering Canyon Cafe


    Lauren said, "DBff and her parents and boyfriend arrived last night. :) We had dinner together at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Our server, Vaquero Al, was really great. Right off the bat, my friend's mom took forever deciding what drink she wanted. He whistled the Jeopardy tune at her then eventually grabbed a chair from the table next to us and sat down to wait. He gestured to another table next to us and said "see this is my table too, they are waiting for me. But she can't decide, sorry!"




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    "And after all that, I can't remember what drink she ordered! But she enjoyed it!" ;)





    [​IMG]

    "DBff's dad and my dad both ordered Session Black lagers. They both really liked this."





    [​IMG]

    "DBff's BF (hahaha) and my bro had milkshakes. Yummy!"




    [​IMG]


    "Cornbread with whipped butter came out first. Delicious! Not dry at all."




    [​IMG]


    "Then we got our all-you-can-eat platters of mashed potatoes, veggies, corn on the cob, and meat. We chose chicken, ribs, and beef strip loin. I didn't try the ribs, but the others said they were good, and the chicken and beef were both very good! They also give you baked beans. The potatoes and veggies were also really good; the veggies have a tasty garlic seasoning on them."






    [​IMG]


    "A table next to us asked for ketchup so I snapped a quick pic afterwards." ;)





    [​IMG]


    "For dessert you get a sampler plate of cranberry apple buckle with orange whipped cream, a chocolate mocha cake, and key lime cheesecake. Everything was good but we were too full to eat much!"



    "Also, I don't have pics of what they got, but my parents weren't very hungry so they just ordered appetizers and didn't participate in the all-you-can-eat, which worked out fine." :)

    My son loved the broccoli, as well. I guess we'll be fighting over it! Did 'Ohanas ask for feedback?
