    Our next update was from a new reporter who arrived at Disney World yesterday, Kerri (wdwpirates).


    She said, "Here are some pics of breakfast that Jimmy picked up today at Saratoga Springs Resort's...


    Artist's Palette



    "First we have the chocolate chip muffin and the chocolate croissant and then Jim also wanted to try the coffee cake. All were very good but I am picking the chocolate croissant as my fave!!!"

    I was obsessed with that snack mix at the CL lounge. Those wasabi peas were so spicy but delicious!

    Then next is an update from a new reporter who arrived in Orlando today, tammilynne.


    She said, "We have arrived in Orlando a day ahead of schedule.. Today we stayed at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort since we are a day ahead of our check in. We will move to Coronado Springs in the morning."

    Tonight we had dinner at the Food Court here at the resort at Antonio's Pizza. I was actually very surprised at how good it was!

    Thank you. I love seeing DL food choices, too. We often find ourselves eating at the same places each time we visit so seeing photos that others post motivate me to try something new. I am sure we are in the park at the same time occasionally . We often go early Saturday mornings, do some rides, have lunch , then head home ( Yorba Linda) as the crowds are arriving.

    We are considering a return visit next May. Both of us liked the "feel" of the Polynesian so may do a CL stay here. Thanks for the photos.

    Sounds like us-we probably pass each other on the 91.:rolleyes: We're a little further away in Corona. Love to get there as early as possible and leave as everyone is streaming in. ;)

    I guessed that Paula was going to have the Cheesecake Brownie :thumbsup2

    Actually, truth be told, I would have chosen the Cheesecake Brownie - just so happens that Paula has excellent taste too :)

    Going to try to get an update posted while I have my lunch and then will attempt to get caught up with the rest tonight.


    And so our next update received last night was sent to us by Paula (smile4stamps), who had dinner last night at the Wilderness Lodge's...


    [​IMG]



    Paula started with a wine flight...


    [​IMG]

    Washington White Wine Flight






    [​IMG]



    For her appetizer, Paula chose the...


    [​IMG]

    Smokey Portobello Soup with Roasted Shiitakes, Chive Oil, and Sourdough Croutons


    "Still a shrunken bowl and a tad bit salty."




    [​IMG]

    NOTE: Copper River Salmon is currently on the menu! :thumbsup2




    But Paula chose...


    [​IMG]

    Seared Diver Scallops with Zellwood Corn Risotto, Fennel Jus, Blistered Tomato, Serrano Ham Crisp, and Citrus Pistou


    "Also a bit salty."



    And the dessert menu...


    [​IMG]


    But Paula passed on dessert here, as she had something else in mind for dessert that she would get elsewhere. ;)



    "You can tell Vicki (GoofySon'sMom) that Paula recommends Citricos over Artist Point.
    This is my third time trying it and none of the times has it blown me away." :sad2:

    Thank you, Paula. I definitely agree with you but the Goofy Son really wants that soup from AP so I have figured out how to work in both. Hopefully it won't be too salty the night we are there!

    Your scallop dish does look pretty tasty though!

    Paula, I'm a bit disappointed you opted for the portobello soup - I wanted to see the confit natural bacon with quails egg :laughing:

    Checking in from work since the day's almost over and I have nothing left to do. :laughing: Sorry Paula didn't love AP. It's still one of my favorite Disney restaurants, since I love the flavors of the Pacific Northwest (AP and Jiko are my top 2). You all can have Cali Grill, Flying Fish, and Citricos - I'll even trade Napa Rose to keep AP. ;)
