    Sure did, and here it is... :thumbsup2


    We received this travel update from DonaldDoleWhip tonight.


    He said, "We're in Orlando right now (it was cheaper to fly late tonight and stay at an airport hotel), but we'll be heading to WDW early in the morning."

    "Before arriving at the airport, we had dinner at a local sandwich shop. Our favorite is slow roasted turkey breast with mango salsa, cilantro, and red onions on multigrain bread."

    On our flight, we didn't eat anything exciting. What made this flight memorable was the incredible view of NYC. We've never seen it so clearly - sorry my phone pics are so bad!"



    [​IMG]

    "George Washington Bridge and Hudson River"




    [​IMG]

    "The big green rectangle in the middle of Manhattan is Central Park!"




    [​IMG]

    "Midtown Manhattan"




    [​IMG]

    "Lower Manhattan"




    [​IMG]

    "And finally, the worst picture of the Statue of Liberty you'll ever see."

    "Happy Fourth, everyone!"




    3 Bonus Points for Travel Update with cool aerial pics of NYC! :thumbsup2

    I'm so glad the email worked! Sometimes my computer has issues with really large email files.

    Again, thanks so much for keeping this thread going, and I can't wait to start sending in WDW photos!

    Hi Barb. That was the Greek salad. I mixed it before I remembered to take the picture. The olives must have been hiding ;-)

    Hello all! Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone at Happy 4th! Wishing I was in Disney, but seeing all these great updates lessens the sting of not being there just a bit!

    Love the NYC pics Mr. DDW! Any pic of Lady Liberty today is quite appropriate!

    But speaking of pancakes, her DD had the Kids pancakes...

    Which came with a side of fruit...

    Happy 4th of July everyone! :wave2:

    Vicki, I agree, that photo of the Statue of Liberty is very fitting today. Thanks Mr. DDW for sharing those photos. I recall driving across the GW Bridge a few times. :)

    And a Kona Café live review to start my morning, what a treat!! (Glad to see someone else compare the TT to the pancakes and pancakes win!)

    We also received this update from JeannieKY this morning.

    Jeannie said, "Dinner last night was just take out pizza from End Zone food court. Typical value resort pizza but a good value to feed 2-3 people for $14-$17 depending on toppings. It was ready in under 7 minutes.

    Breakfast today is also from..."


    End Zone Food Court



    [​IMG]

    All-Star Bounty Platter - scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuit, [normally comes with] sausage, bacon, French toast



    "I got the Bounty Platter with all bacon, no sausage. Having breakfast by the baseball pool. Nice morning with a breeze in Florida! Food is good but I wish they would cook the bacon more!


    Happy 4th!"

    So glad I found this thread! This looks quite fun, being a live food reporter. Our trip isn't until October and since I don't get to the World often enough to develop food faves I've scheduled us a bunch of places that seem to be solid favorites among the Dis community.

    I'm curious, when do people send in updates for the most part? While waiting in line for an attraction, while still at the table, or once you're relaxing in your room?

    Your updates can be sent whenever and wherever works best for you. I want the live reporting to be an easy and fun experience for our volunteers, so I leave the content (whether short or detailed) of the updates and frequency up to each reporter. :thumbsup2

    Thanks barb for the nice send off!

    It totally sucks that I have to work my entire shift tomorrow & can't leave early...we will be in Orlando at about 730pm Friday night. :(

    We will be making the most of our 1.5 days at Disney! At least we get to return next month for 5 days. :)

    Happy eating!! :)

    Rachel (rachel09985) had lunch today at the...


    Boardwalk Bakery


    She said, "I literally just spent $33 on myself at the Boardwalk Bakery."



    Let's see what she got for her $33, shall we?



    [​IMG]

    Maine Lobster with buttered chive mayo on a split top roll

    "The lobster roll was delicious!! Loved it and recommend it." :thumbsup2



    [​IMG]

    ...served with a side of Cucumber Salad.


    "Refreshing!"




    [​IMG]

    Mixed Greens Salad topped with apples, dried cranberries, and goat cheese, with a pomegranate vinaigrette

    "I thought this was a side salad but it was an entree. The dressing was so bitter that it was inedible."





    Then for dessert, Rachel got these...



    [​IMG]

    Peanut Butter, Banana, and Candied Bacon Pie
    & Salted Caramel Ganache


    "The salted caramel was ok. Caramel had a weird taste. The peanut butter one was awful and basically had no flavor. Both had the same crust, which was awful. Hard and dry."


    "Disappointing desserts and salad! To top it off I spilled dressing on me." :(




    Then she and Corey crossed over to the other side of the lake to get Corey's lunch from...


    [​IMG]




    "He had a cheeseburger & fries and a chocolate malt..."


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    "He said the burger was ok. We both decided we would only go back for dessert."

    We also received a lunch update from JeannieKY.

    She and her daughter Allison had lunch at the All Star Sports resort's...


    End Zone Food Court


    [​IMG]



    Jeannie said, "We tried the bacon cheeseburger and hamburger with fries. These were cooked fresh in about 5 minutes. We got bottled drinks for the parks since we use our mugs at the resort and drinks are included in the QS meal plan. I had the oatmeal raisin cookie which was delicious! Allison had another brownie. We have been pleasantly surprised by the End Zone food court."
