    Then it's back to Wendydagny and her lunch update from Epcot's...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]





    Wendy started with a Magical Star cocktail...

    [​IMG]

    Magical Star Cocktail
    Light up your celebration with X-Fusion Organic Mango and Passion Fruit Liqueur, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Pineapple Juice, and a souvenir Multicolored Glow Cube



    "Chosen solely because it's fun to glow in the dark." ;)



    And for her appetizer...


    [​IMG]

    Seared Scallops with English Peas, Red Onion Marmalade, Carrot Puree, Pea Tendrils, and Smoked Bacon Snow


    "Nice sear and the puree and onion marmalade added some nice flavor."



    "DH and the kids had the soup..."

    [​IMG]

    Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead Beer and "Nueske's" Applewood-smoked bacon





    "DH and I both had the filet..."

    [​IMG]

    "Le Cellier" Mushroom Filet Mignon
    8-oz "AAA" Canadian Beef Tenderloin with Wild Mushroom Risotto, Pickled Pearl Onions and White Truffle-Butter Sauce

    "This has changed with the addition of the pickled onions, which neither of us loved. The filet was good but nowhere near Jiko. Still, in our opinion, the best "in park" meal."




    "DD had the Kid's steak..."

    [​IMG]

    Grilled Sirloin with Brown Rice and Green Beans

    "She said the flavor was good, but Jiko was better. And the rice was bland and boring."




    "DS had the Kid's Salmon..."


    [​IMG]

    Seared Salmon with French Fries and Green Beans


    "Which he declared delicious, and cleaned his plate." :thumbsup2




    For dessert, both the kids had...


    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Mousse

    "Which was a hit."




    While both their parents had...

    [​IMG]

    Maple Créme Brulée


    "Which was yummy."

    I had a nice surprise today when I received this text from a reporter who I thought was not arriving until Wednesday.


    She said, "Forgot to tell you I added 2 days! I flew out this morning first thing. It's just me until Wednesday. After adding 2 days to our trip, DH's boss scheduled a mandatory meeting. Oh well, guess I will start without him." ;)





    So, I'm happy to announce that now up to the Disney Dining Plate is...





    :cheer2: Couchy :cheer2:

    Couchy is at Disney World from 7/1 - 7/8 and she has volunteered to again do live updates for us!

    One last update, this one from a new reporter who arrived today, JeannieKY.



    She said, "The best laid plans... We have moved to the All Star Sports resort after a late arrival due to storms. I did not want to stay in Country Fair [at All Star Music] and nothing else was open. So Touchdown it is and they promise our bags will make it here!"



    "Dinner is quick service in...




    End Zone Food Court


    [​IMG]



    "I had the Penne Alfredo substituting marinara sauce for the Alfredo. It comes with a breadstick and a salad. It is a lot of food and very good. Tastes fresh! DD16 Allison stole my salad. It comes with a light Italian dressing, very good. She let me have a bite! ;) She had the cheese pizza, standard at all of the Value resorts. For dessert, I had the Banana bread and she got a brownie. We were both happier with our picks than the taste of each other's! We got all of our food and mugs in under 10 minutes despite the crowd and the staff was friendly. Warning, the large tour groups are at the All Stars but seemed worse at the Music. Magic Kingdom tomorrow!"

    Everything looks as delicious as always! Now I want that parmesan crusted chicken dinner that they serve at the values for lunch today. It's impossible to diet and be an active reader of this thread! :lmao:

    Next were a couple more updates from JeannieKY at Magic Kingdom.


    Jeannie & Allison had lunch at...


    Diamond Horseshoe Revue


    [​IMG]




    Here's what they had...


    [​IMG]


    "Tuna salad with croissant, apple slices and chocolate cake for Allison. Turkey sandwich with chips and a fruit cup for me. There was a storm and we'd never eaten here, so...it is ok. Columbia Harbour House and Pecos Bill's are better for hot food, but the seating is good in here and it is cool."

    And then Jeannie also sent this Magic Kingdom snack update from...


    [​IMG]
