    You are to funny!!!!! Although emme might like spending the day in the Magic Kingdom alone.
    I'm sure she knows her way around better than most adults....

    We also received a short beverage snack update from spaceacewannabe.


    I believe this is from the Harambe Popcorn kiosk, located by Tusker House at Animal Kingdom.



    [​IMG]

    Jungle Juice with passion fruit, guava, and orange juice
    (I believe this is like the juice served at Boma)


    spacewannabe said, "Jungle juice from somewhere in Africa. I also had the sugared pecans, but I couldn't get a photo without spilling. Both delicious. Nuts are in line with prices at home."

    Disney gift cards.

    I use my target red card & get 5% off gift cards. In addition to my 20% off with TIW, the savings are great. Every little bit helps. :)

    And then spaceacewannabe sent a dinner update from...


    [​IMG]



    "Did dinner here as a walk up. Same price ($32.99) as lunch. The safari driver urged us to eat here, and some of the hostesses were out front trying to get people to eat here as I was leaving. When I went to see if I could get in, the hostess sighed and said, "we're never busy for dinner.". I was there from about 4 until 5, and I was one of only seven parties there. Granted, this was early, but the park was starting to clear out, so I don't see where it could've picked up much."




    Some buffet pics...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    "Bread pudding and a chocolate pecan bar."





    [​IMG]

    "Hot vegetarian options."




    [​IMG]


    "Tusker House cold vegetarian options (except green beans, which I don't much care for, and fruit, which had not been replenished yet from lunch)."




    [​IMG]


    "Favorites. Note that the cold curry rice is vegetarian, the hot rice jollof is not. The cold stuff is great."



    [​IMG]

    Desserts: Fruit, lemon bar, macaroon, baklava, and chocolate pecan bar

    Good morning everyone! :wave2: I have one more update left to post from yesterday, this one from emmebear. We left off on Sunday with her arrival at Magic Kingdom to fully complete her mission from the previous day. She had first rode Space Mountain, and now it was on to finish the MK Mountain Trifecta.


    Next up...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    And then...



    [​IMG]






    With her mission of riding the thrill rides now complete, it was time for something to eat from...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    "I got the Beef Burrito (Beef, black beans, and cilantro rice) and went to the toppings bar and loaded up!"




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]

    "Closest thing to sriracha sauce or any hot sauce for that matter."




    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    "I had to use a knife and fork so I wouldn't look like a total slob! ;) The burrito was very satisfying and just what I wanted to eat. I was totally full afterwards."




    [​IMG]






    "Afterwards, I was full but wanted something sweet."

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Citrus Swirl




    [​IMG]

    "Perfect on this hot day."




    "Then I met up with some friends, rode a few more rides and painfully missed Emme. Magic Kingdom was the only park where I really wished Emme was with me." :worried:


    [​IMG]

    "My friends, Chip & Dale."




    [​IMG]

    "And my friend Goofy."




    A pic of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train...


    [​IMG]

    "Look at all this progress!!"




    [​IMG]

    "Oh, and I had a Mickey band sighting!!"





    Then it was again time to say goodbye to...


    [​IMG]



    emmebear said, "Overall I had a fantastic time solo. It was unbelievable how quickly I could move without Emme but I also missed her so much...especially at Magic Kingdom. We will be returning though in July and August." :thumbsup2



    6 June Game Points Earned + 9 Bonus Points for signs and menu pics, pics of emmebear, and misc. other pics

    Note: Since emmebear will be back to WDW for another weekend trip in July, her final game point total will not be calculated until after that trip.

    Del Mar Platter - Mixed grill offering shrimp, fish, scallops and vegetables, served with beans and fresh salsas

    Beach Club Marketplace


    [​IMG]

    "Aaron and I got the breakfast potato casserole. The other half of our party had cereal in the room."

    Then we received Goofyluver's update from their dinner last night at...


    [​IMG]



    "Dinner last night was at a new place to us. We checked in 25 minutes early but only had to wait 5 minutes before we were seated."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    "We were seated next to the fire pits. It was cool to watch."




    "We perused the drinkies...because tonight was going to be a drinking night."


    [​IMG]



    They chose...


    [​IMG]

    "The best part of the whole night! Good things come in twos...two Pina Colavas!" :thumbsup2




    "First up...bread and salad...


    [​IMG]

    "The bread ...I was so looking forward to the bread because people rave about it. Ummmm...it was just okay. But I adored the salad! So refreshing!"




    [​IMG]

    "Warm towels...and they are warm!"


    "We didn't like the wings. The potstickers were okay."




    [​IMG]

    "Noodles and veggies...again, just no. The noodles had zero flavor." :sad2:





    [​IMG]

    "Some of the chicken...this was dry enough to make us rethink the entire reservation. Uh oh!" :worried:




    [​IMG]

    "Shrimp and steak. The steak was too tough to even cut through. The shrimp was the best meat of the night."


    "To make most of the dry meat edible, we drowned it in the peanut sauce and the sweet and sour sauce."





    [​IMG]

    "By the time the bread pudding came out, we were full of bad food and upset about the whole experience...so we only took a few bites." :(


    "We won't return here. This was one of the meals we were all looking forward to most. And it is by far one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had at Disney. Uncle R says eating at a place like 'Ohana makes her long for my home cooking." ;)

    Main Street Bakery/Starbucks



    Some display case pics...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    "All pretty standard Starbucks stuff. Not anything too special."





    spaceacewannabe's choice was...

    [​IMG]

    Wild Berry Quick Bread



    Btw, I asked spaceacewannabe if there was any sign of the old MSB cinnamon rolls and here was the reply...


    "Didn't see any. Just standard Starbucks stuff and the ubiquitous cupcakes. I was bummed." :(

    Hi! :wave2: Just wanted to let you know that I saw your post and thank you for volunteering. I am going to be taking a non-Disney vacation and will be gone during the first part of your trip (8/8 - 8/12). I've made arrangements for someone else to fill in for me while I'm gone and checking the schedule I found that we already have 6 other volunteers during those days. So I wanted to check with her first before adding another reporter to the schedule. Therefore, I'll have to get back to you regarding those first four days, but beginning on the 13th you are welcome to start sending your updates to me. :thumbsup2

    I hate to hear that! When were there last week, our meat was actually quite tender.
