    I still have a couple of dinner updates (Boatwright's and Flying Fish Cafe) from our live reporters, as well as several more from Gabrielle (gabzee) but it's time for me to call it a night. So good night folks and I'll see you tomorrow! :wave2:

    Thank you, thank you!

    I think I will be making some white sangria this weekend to celebrate!

    This is one Disney drink that I have actually never tried. I may have to rectify that in the near future!

    Great updates last night, Barb!

    If anyone else doesn't like their Ohana coconut bread, please feel free to send it here! I love that bread. I still havent tried the lapu lapu either, but I've wanted to for a long time.

    Let's begin today with Chris' (dvc4life) update from their dinner last night at...

    [​IMG]




    "The very dry and hard cornbread...


    [​IMG]




    "This was my Jambalaya. It was very good and not too spicy. The sausage was really good in it."

    [​IMG]

    Jambalaya - a Creole recipe with Spiced Chicken Thighs, Andouille Sausage, Shrimp, Rice, and Vegetables




    "Youngest daughter had just a salad and didn't like it. The dressing was not very good. So I shared mine with her and she really liked mine."


    [​IMG]

    Romaine Salad - Romaine, Parmigiano-Reggiano Croutons and Prosciutto served with our House Dressing





    "My DH and oldest daughter had the prime rib and loved it."

    [​IMG]

    "Our family birthday cake. We all have birthdays this month so we got a cake. It was good. They also sang us happy birthday. Such fun. It really is the simple things anymore."


    [​IMG]




    And then an update from the lounge at Port Orleans Riverside...


    River Roost



    [​IMG]

    "Now time for a glass of wine and Yee Haw Bob."


    [​IMG]

    One more update which was sent last night, this one from 1coolnini.


    She and 1coolpapa had dinner last night on the Boardwalk at the...


    [​IMG]



    "For dinner tonight we ate at Flying Fish. Quick walk from our room at the Beach Club. We were about 10 minutes early for our 7:20 reservation and we were seated immediately."


    [​IMG]




    "We both ordered the Pinot Noir wine flight."


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]




    The bread...


    [​IMG]




    "They happily split our Caesar salad onto two plates. This is my portion...


    [​IMG]

    1/2 share of Caesar Salad - Hearts of Romaine Leaves, Roasted Garlic Dressing, Parmigiano-Montegrappa Frico, and Pesto-Ciabatta Croutons

    "Loved the baked Parmesan crisp. There was more dressing than I like, but it was good."




    Then for their entrees, 1coolnini had the "Surf and Surf"...


    [​IMG]

    Pan-roasted Pesto-glazed Epcot Striped Bass and Lemon Myrtle-scented Gulf Shrimp, served with Spring Garden Vegetable Fricassee, Roasted Pine Nut and Herb-laced Exotic Wild Rice, Sun-dried Tomato Coulis, and Meyer Lemon-Basil Oil


    "It was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the bed of veggies, pine nuts, and exotic rice that it was served on. Excellent!"





    1coolpapa chose this for his entree...


    [​IMG]

    Signature Flying Fish Cafe Entree Duo: NY Strip Steak & Red Snapper
    Char-crusted Angus NY Strip Steak (with Fingerling Potatoes, Hericot Vert, young carrots, and Bermuda onions with Classic Sauce Foyot) and Potato-wrapped Red Snapper over a rich Leek Fondue with a Veal Glace de Viande, Red Wine-Cassis Butter reduction


    "He said it was excellent and I believe him because he cleaned his plate."



    Then on to dessert...


    [​IMG]



    "For dessert, I had the Seasonal House-made Sorbets with Fresh Berries and a Crisp Tuile."



    [​IMG]


    "Now this is 3 tiny scoops of sorbet topped with berries. I absolutely loved this. Light and refreshing but packed with flavor. One of the sorbets was a tropical blend of pineapple and passion fruit...to die for!" :cloud9:



    "1coolpapa had the Bread Pudding...


    [​IMG]

    Caramel-Chocolate-Brioche Bread Pudding with Vanilla-praline gelato, spicy pecan brittle, and a cinnamon Anglaise sauce

    "He liked it and finished his plate. He did give me a bite, but I am just not a bread pudding fan. Besides, I was in love with my dessert!"



    "Final note on Flying Fish...don't overlook this signature restaurant. Food and service were excellent. However, we did notice that the restaurant was very noisy. I am assuming it was because of the design of the restaurant ceiling, but I'm not sure."

    DH keeps asking why we haven't tried Flying Fish yet. I think we're going to have to squeeze that in soon :)

    Is there more info other than the list of possible participants? I am definitely planning on attending ... probably the 5th or 6th thru Monday the 9th. I mentioned needing those days off when I was offered the job, just need to confirm it when I actually start.

    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by Nicole (AvasMommy526).


    She, Jeff, and Ava had dinner last night at...


    Cinderella's Royal Table



    [​IMG]



    Nicole said, "Last night was great! It rained a bit while we were back at BLT letting Ava take her nap so when we got back to MK, the lines were really short. We never waited more than 10 mins! We did everything we could with her and we had dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. It was wonderful! The staff and the princesses were so incredibly sweet to my little princess. And seeing my little one run up to them made it worth any amount of money!" :)




    [​IMG]



    "We were started with hot fresh rolls and whipped butter, awesome!"

    [​IMG]




    "For my appetizer, I went with the Endive Salad with craisins, pear, blue cheese, walnuts and Minus 8 vinaigrette."


    [​IMG]

    "The salad was pretty good, I love bleu cheese crumbles so that was a plus."





    "He had the Royal Tasting of Cheese, it had a piece of bleu, a cheddar and goat cheese with accompaniments."


    [​IMG]

    "He thought it was ok, but I really liked the goat!"




    "Ava had the cheddar cheese with grapes (no pic), she loves grapes!"




    "For my entree, I had the the Gnocchi with roasted vegetables."

    [​IMG]

    Gnocchi with Roasted Vegetables - Eggplant, Mushrooms, Onions, and Squash tossed with Gnocchi, Arugula, Pesto, shaved Romano, and splash of Aged Balsamic

    "The gnocchi dish was wonderful! It was perfect, I ate so much yesterday but I liked it so much I kept going!!" :p




    "Jeff got the Beef tenderloin and roasted potatoes...


    [​IMG]

    Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus, and a Tarragon Demi-glace

    "The beef was so tender, cooked perfectly, he loved the potatoes! He gave me his asparagus which you'll see on top of my dish, also great!"




    "Ava had the Kids chicken nuggets with mashed potatoes and corn."


    [​IMG]


    "She had already had a roll, cheese and grapes so she didn't eat much but I tried it and it was all good! She had the Kids ice cream for dessert, she loved it of course. "



    [​IMG]




    "Jeff and I both had the Tasting Trio!"


    [​IMG]

    "The trio was also good. It had flourless chocolate cake, strawberry jam and key lime cheesecake and a white chocolate custard! It was all good, Jeff and I agree the custard was the best!"



    "We were stuffed when our wonderful waitress brought out THREE cupcakes lit for our celebrations!!! We took one bite and packed them up for the room."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "Ava adored the princesses and it was a lovely experience. We will definitely go again!"


    [​IMG]



    Then a snack update from...

    Aloha Isle


    [​IMG]


    "Then as we finished up Adventureland, I had to have a Dole Whip to watch Celebrate the Magic (which I loved!!!) and Wishes (my favorite!)."


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "Oh, and here's a bonus photo. It's not food related but I think some people may get a kick out of it... I stated that this ride photo pretty much sums up our lives..." :lmao:

    "We weren't that thrilled with the salads, but we loved the...



    [​IMG]


    "MEAT!!! So much so that our group couldn't leave it alone long enough for me to take a picture! The pulled pork just melted in your mouth and was very well seasoned."




    [​IMG]


    "The only thing better than the meat was the show!!!"





    [​IMG]


    "And the all you can drink wine!"




    [​IMG]


    "The dessert was also a fave!"

    Next in was a two-part update from 1coolnini.


    Part 1 was a morning snack update from the...


    [​IMG]


    She said, "We decided to go back to DHS for a few hours today. We have snack credits we need to use, so we had a morning treat here."



    [​IMG]


    "It is a small bakery inside of a gift shop with two display cases of yummy treats."



    [​IMG]

    "Bad photo of their small menu. The real reason we stopped here is because 1coolpapa has been searching for a mocha frappuccino since we got here 6 days ago. They have some frozen type cappuccino drinks at World Showcase but they aren't the same. We went into the Swan and Dolphin...no go. I was so hopeful the Starbuck's would be open at MK but we asked and were told mid-summer. We were so bummed. We can always find one at Disneyland and California Adventure. ANYWAY...they don't have them here either. We are now convinced you can not find a true mocha frappuccino at WDW. Anyone have any ideas? It is not an iced drink, you need a blender to make one."





    [​IMG]


    "We ended up with this carrot cookie and a frozen cherry drink."



    [​IMG]


    "1coolpapa would've given the cookie 2 thumbs up...but he had the cookie in a firm grasp with his other hand!" ;)

    Then Part 2 was from 1coolnini & 1coolpapa's lunch today at...


    [​IMG]



    She said, "We headed back after a few hours at DHS and stopped here for lunch."


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    "For a counter service credit you can get this lobster roll and cucumber salad..."

    [​IMG]



    ...and one of these for dessert!"

    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Eclair and Salted Caramel Ganache
    ("And yes, I did have one of these a few days ago! They are very yummy. I love the gooey caramel in the center." )



    "What a deal if you are on the dining plan." :thumbsup2



    "Note on the lobster roll, it needed a little something...Not sure what. DH was thinking maybe lemon. I was thinking green onion (but then I think everything tastes better with garlic and onion!)." ;)
