    I had this problem A LOT this trip. I don't remember feeling this way last July but I skipped meals a lot and at some meals barely ate.

    Last in yesterday were a couple of updates from Cathy (catho72), starting with this lunch update from the...


    Beach Club Marketplace


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    "My daughter and I shared a turkey sandwich. It had cranberry sauce, lettuce and brie on it and it was large enough for the two of us to share. Their homemade chips are to die for! Our dessert was a red velvet cupcake. Half of it is sitting in our fridge."

    Then Cathy also sent a dinner update from Epcot's...

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    "On Monday night we dined at Biergarten. I had read so many excellent reviews about it so I knew we had to try it. Our kids were kind of skeptical. As we were waiting for our table our son commented, "It smells oddly good!" All of us LOVED our dinner there! Our youngest daughter couldn't get enough pork roast....she went up to the carving station three times!"

    [​IMG]



    "The band was very entertaining, too."

    [​IMG]




    "Our waitress was brand new and slow, but very sweet. I enjoyed a glass of Riesling (which is my favorite kind!) and my husband had a flight of beer."

    [​IMG]




    "The desserts were some of the best we've had all week especially the Bavarian Cheesecake and the Black Forest cake!"

    Only a couple more updates received today, including this one from Cathy (catho72).


    She said, "On Tuesday, we had lunch scheduled for 2:45 at Sci-Fi but at 12:00, we were a wee but hungry. My daughters and I stopped in the Writers Stop for a small snack."

    "The girls chose a chocolate chip muffin and I had a piece of English toffee. They thoroughly enjoyed their muffin and the toffee was good. It was hard but not hard enough to break a tooth (which is always a good thing!)." ;)

    And the other update was received from nicole0992.


    She and her DD had lunch yesterday at Magic Kingdom's...


    [​IMG]





    "We enjoyed it and decided to cancel our dinner ADR for tomorrow. Lunch was great. We were able to get a window seat in the ballroom. We literally walked right into the restaurant with no wait at 11:00." :thumbsup2


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    "We both had our own onion soups and split the Croque Monsieur..."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    "Soup was great with so much cheese. The sandwich was 1,000 times better than the one from Les Halles. The ham was thicker cut carved ham. The bread was nutty multigrain."





    "I chose the chocolate cupcake and my daughter had the strawberry cream cheese..."

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    "Both were so fresh and yummy. Also, for the ice tea drinkers who don't care for the Gold Peak tea that is everywhere, there is fresh brewed unsweetened tea at BOG."






    [​IMG]

    "Here is our spread!" :laughing:

    She said, "After seeing pictures and hearing how wonderful the Lobster Roll was there, I couldn't wait to try it."

    [​IMG]


    "The caramel was fabulous!"







    "The girls shared a roast beef sandwich from there and an Oreo cupcake."

    [​IMG]

    Hi Barb. Well done for keeping us entertained with all these updates. I'm now less than three weeks from returning to WDW :cheer2: and a few days from the end of the school term :cheer2:

    As I said before, I'm off to Paris on a school trip for the next few days and will be in Disneyland on Monday. Can you let me know how to send you updates? I do have an iPhone.

    It's only a fleeting one day visit, but I'm with lots of others so will hopefully be able to snap quite a few shots of Disney yumminess :thumbsup2

    Good morning everybody! :wave2: Took most of the day off yesterday, as we threw a "Welcome Home" party for my DD last night. She just returned last Sunday from two months studying abroad in Florence.

    But now I'm again a whole day behind with posting updates, so let's get started with our First Update of the Day from yesterday sent to us by ldnoggle.


    She said, "Sorry for the delay in reports! My conference started Monday, and with being at it from 8-5 and being out in the parks late every night, I
    got behind!"

    "Here is a roundup of what other stuff I was able to get pictures of:"


    Yacht Club Conference Center


    "Conference food (breakfast and lunch daily) at the Yacht Club is amazing!"


    "Here are two examples of lunches served at the Yacht Club Conference Center. Every meal was absolutely delicious!"


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    "And here is one of the afternoon snack choices on the first day:"

    [​IMG]

    "Chase and Brian both had Club sandwiches. They ate every bite."




    [​IMG]

    "I had the strawberry chicken salad. It had grilled chicken, strawberries, Gorgonzola cheese, cucumbers, and croutons. I love the vinaigrette dressing and also ask for extra."

    "Both guys had Oreo sundaes. Very yummy!"




    [​IMG]

    "And Brianna had the Kids sundae. The cookies were her favorite part."
