    Thanks to Swirlygirly for the Shula's update!!! I'm glad to hear about the 8oz filet. We'll be there next month so this was a great surprise to see.

    Definitely Earl of Sandwich will be a place that Em and I will be picking up sandwiches this week.

    Barb: Not sure you know but we'll be at Disney's Grand Californian for 5 nites/6 days this coming week! :banana: I have a work conference there but we'll be staying over and enjoying the special 58th DL birthday celebration. :)

    I'd love to know how much the Mai tai was at the barefoot bar that swirlygirly had?!

    Also was it sweet or sour, had them both ways prefer sweet myself!

    We received another update yesterday from ldnoggle, this one from her lunch at the Beach Club's...


    Beaches and Cream



    [​IMG]



    She said, "We split the Bacon Burger for lunch and as you can see, our server
    was nice enough to cut it in half and serve it with fries on separate
    plates. We were grateful, especially since this was messy! The burger
    is topped with barbecue sauce, blue cheese, an onion ring, and lettuce
    and tomato. The bun was nicely toasted too! As a side note - this is
    the first time we're doing Disney without the deluxe dining plan, and
    while we loved that, it has been nice to not be tied to nightly ADRs
    and to have the ability to share, etc..."

    "My conference starts tomorrow :( and our only other ADR is Yachtsman
    on Tuesday, so posts may be a little sporadic over the next couple of
    days."

    [​IMG]


    She said, "My mom had the tonga toast with sausage, I had tonga toast and my sister had a Mickey waffle with bacon. Tonga toast is delicious, the only problem is no strawberry sauce when you order it at Captain Cook's. Mickey waffles just taste better than regular ones!" :thumbsup2

    We were all waddling after eating here, we just couldn't stop ourselves for over indulging. That was only my second time eating there but now it's a must stop, i'm not quite sure what i'll do though if I don't have people to share with as I can't possibly eat it all by myself.

    Oh, and more sweet than sour, but not too sweet so that the alcohol is masked.
