    I haven't been on the Dis since the 17th of June - Holy snap I had a lot of yummy photos to catch up on!

    And how about Tina's points! :worship:

    It's midnight here and now, of course, I'm hungry. The only thing in my house that is similar to anything in this thread would be my own version of Corey's pb&j...but it would have to be made with strange European peanut butter, lol. Might be time to turn in :rotfl2:

    They got rid of the Parmesan chicken at pop??? That was one of my favorite things at WDW. I was known to drive over to the pop food court to get it :(

    While they are strict on the checkin. We were seated within 5 minutes of checking in, ahead of our ADR. Service was very good. I'm just not sure that steak dinner was worth almost $40 OOP even though she ate it all. The chicken was much better than I expected and more reasonably priced at around $22. Dinner for 2 with dessert and tip without alcohol was almost $90.

    Next was Rachel's update from their dinner at the Grand Floridian's...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]



    Here is what they had...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    "There was a basic roll and raisin bread. Corey loved the raisin bread. The other bread was Rock hard. I threw it on the table and it made a loud noise!" :lmao:





    "Corey had steak, which he loved, and I had the shrimp and grits."


    [​IMG]

    Char-Crusted New York Strip Steak with Red Bliss Mashed Potatoes and Brandy-Green Peppercorn Sauce with Seasonal Vegetables




    [​IMG]

    Shrimp and Grits - Jumbo Shrimp with Chorizo and Fennel served on top of Creamy Mascarpone Grits


    "This was incredible, seriously! The sauce reminded me of the truffle butter sauce from Le Cellier. The grits were so creamy. The sauce was like a buttery lobster taste. Delicious. It had a LOT of onions in it! The only thing that could have been better was grilled shrimp."




    "I did not get dessert but took a pic of their dessert tray..."


    [​IMG]


    "I begged them for Narcoossee's cheesecake dessert but they couldn't do it." :sad1:

    Then last from Rachel were a couple of snack updates, the first one a cocktail update from Mexico's Margarita stand at Epcot.


    [​IMG]

    "So perfect! Lime was my favorite flavor."





    Then after Epcot they got this snack at the Pop Century resort's...


    Everything Pop


    [​IMG]

    King Cupcake - A tribute to Elvis Presley, the cupcake features all of the flavors from the King’s renowned favorite sandwich.


    "It is a chocolate cupcake filled with banana custard, with peanut butter icing topped with candied bacon and drizzled with chocolate. I only had a couple bites but it's so good!! The cakes a little dry but the banana stuff inside is good and the peanut butter frosting is outstanding." :thumbsup2

    Hi, I'm SwirlyGirly. I'll be a July participant. Our schedule looks like this:
    July 7-11 Universal at RPR
    July 11-22 Disney with a hotel hopping schedule that includes Yacht Club, Poly and Swan.

    I'll be traveling with my 2 daughters. The Mr will be working as usual, so in Disney I'm always a single parent. I will be meeting up with 2 sets of friends in Universal. And in Disney with my parents and my cousin and her daughter.

    We have a ton of ADRs and we stay Club Level (except of course at the Swan), we will be sending lots of pics and updates.

    I'm looking forward to it! I love following the thread and excited to participate.

    She and her family were at Magic Kingdom yesterday and breakfast at...


    [​IMG]




    Where they tried the...


    [​IMG]

    LeFou's Brew


    "Kids loved the slush part but said the foam on top was disgusting."


    "We kept breakfast simple this morning so we'd make rope drop at Magic Kingdom. DH slept in of course." ;)





    Then they had lunch at...


    [​IMG]



    For her appetizer, Wendy got...

    [​IMG]

    Tavern Fried Cheese with marinara sauce


    "I got this mainly to share with the kids. They thought they were awesome. I thought they were standard."





    "DS chose the...


    [​IMG]

    Chicken Noodle Soup with his crackers." :lmao:




    "DH had the Soup of the Day..."


    [​IMG]

    Beef Vegetable Soup


    "Both he and DD loved this!"




    "DH and I both had the Colony Salad..."


    [​IMG]

    Colony Salad - Washington apples, sweet pecans and Applewood smoked cheddar, dried cranberry Craisins, and grilled chicken tossed with field greens in honey shallot vinaigrette

    "This is always a hit. DH would prefer a different cheese though."





    "DS had the Kids Turkey..."


    [​IMG]

    Oven-roasted Turkey with mashed potatoes and green beans

    "He ate the turkey and mashed potatoes but left the beans--these were canned and he is used to fresh."





    "DD had the Kids flatbread..."


    [​IMG]

    Barbecue Chicken and Pineapple Flatbread

    "This was gross. There was way too much BBQ. She had some salad instead."




    The kids had sundaes for dessert...


    [​IMG]




    Wendy chose the...


    [​IMG]

    Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce

    "I had the toffee cake, which was yummy but not served warm this time? :confused3 We ate it all anyway."



    And her DH had...


    [​IMG]

    Johnny Appleseed's Cake - Tavern-made white cake filled with apples and craisins, Dried Cranberries, topped with ice cream

    "He was remembering a different dessert when he ordered this. He liked it but probably wouldn't get it again."




    "Then on way to break with youngest I stopped at..."

    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]




    Where she had a...


    [​IMG]

    Caramel Frappuccino

    "It was good of course. Definitely on the sweet vs. strong side, but that's barista variation I think." ;)
