    Our First Update of the Day was sent to us by cindymindy.

    Cindy and Robby had dinner last night at the Yacht Club's...


    Yachtsman Steakhouse




    [​IMG]




    "I started the night with something new, New England Steamer."


    [​IMG]

    New England Steamer with House-made Chorizo, Summer Ale, Lemon, Garlic and Parsley


    "This southern gal had never had one before, so what better place than Disney to try new dishes! It had a great spicy flavor!"






    "Robby had the lobster bisque."


    [​IMG]

    Lobster Bisque with Maine Lobster, Creme Fraiche, Preserved Lemon, and Fines Herbes


    "He liked that it had more seafood flavor than cream."





    "For our entree, we got the same dish, Prime New York strip steak. We learned Yachtsman is the only restaurant on property with its own in house butcher, and this cut came highly recommended."


    [​IMG]

    12-oz. Prime New York Strip Steak with Gruyere Potato Gratin and Peppercorn-Brandy Sauce


    "Everything about this dish was perfection. This is easily the best steak I have eaten on property. The potato gratin has a lovely gruyere cheese flavor explosion that is to die for!"





    "For Robby's dessert, he sampled the Yachtsman sundae."

    [​IMG]

    "He was quite pleased with his selection!"




    "I ordered the sorbet."


    [​IMG]


    "This was better than most of the sorbet selections I have tried, mainly because of the flavors, raspberry, pineapple and passion fruit."




    "Overall, the food here was impeccable. Like I said before, this was the best steak we have had on property. The restaurant itself left little impression on us. This is a slower service restaurant as well, so make sure to budget your time."

    Thanks for doing this Barb! Keeping up with it has to be a tough job, but when my phone was just being plain difficult it doesn't make the job easier. My phone decided which pictures it wanted to send apparently! About the hair at Columbia Harbour House, I was mostly done with my meal when I discovered it. I brought it to the manager's attention. They offered me something else but I was pretty full by this point. Then in my last meal at POR I found a hair in the house made chips that came with the sandwich! I didn't even bother messing with it because we had to catch the DME. My husband keeps wondering why it's always me that this happens to. Seriously, it's everywhere, not just Disney. I think it's because I pay attention to what I eat.:rotfl2:

    Overall the food on this trip was very good! There are a few places will have to return. Cape May, Be Our Guest, Tusker House, Biergarten. We liked Mama Melrose, but not enough to try it again for awhile.

    Then I received a surprise update from one of our veteran live reporters, emmebear.


    She said, "Good morning! Guess where I am...solo?...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    After riding Test Track it was on to World Showcase, where she sent an update from her breakfast at France's...

    Although these looking pretty tempting...

    this is what she chose...

    "Breakfast for champions! And for $13...not bad!" :thumbsup2



    [​IMG]

    Croissant Jambon Fromage - Ham, cheese & bechamel in a croissant


    "The ham & cheese croissant is so delicious. It's flaky and buttery and probably not good for my diet but that's ok. I will be walking a lot." ;)





    [​IMG]

    "Mimosa with lots of bubbly. :thumbsup2



    "I asked for all champagne and he asked if I was driving. Ha ha! The oj was for color he said." ;)




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    "World Showcase is closed until 11:00 but Les Halles is open. It's pretty dead inside but so nice cause it's drizzling outside."




    And then while still in France, emmebear had an encounter with this crazy character, who apparently has taken up the new hobby of tower climbing ... ;)


    [​IMG]





    Before leaving Epcot, she encountered another "mad" character...
