    Thank you so much for taking the time to do such a wonderful, detailed DR! That thai chili dessert at FF looks right up my alley, and so beautifully presented!

    You have me really excited to give Raglan Road another try!

    Who's ready for some adult fun?

    This review won't be long, but I wanted to make sure I mentioned it because we love it!

    After our meal at Flying Fish we made our way down to Jellyrolls at the end of the Boardwalk opposite of the Epcot entrance.

    Jellyrolls is a dueling piano bar that's 21+. You can start to enter at 8, music starts at 9 and every hour they swap pianists. There is a cover charge ($10?) and they have nightly drink specials on the board at the bar. The drink specials are the best deals. You request songs by writing them on napkins and placing them with a dollar (or $2 or $5...) on the pianos.

    I particularly like Jellyrolls and encourage everyone to go because it's a place that both me and my parents can enjoy together. So short review, but go! It's a fun time!

    You have hit on a number of things that are making my mouth water! I have never seen that Sinful Trifle at Raglan or some of the Flying fish dishes (everyone is always rating the potato wrapped red snapper) so thanks for this, your really getting the wheels turning for our next trip!

    Jellyrolls is a great way to (sp)end an evening :thumbsup2

    Heather, it is pretty loud - I wouldn't say you'd have to yell but it's certainly not a place where you could have a quiet conversation.

    Jellyrolls sounds like so much fun - I hope we can get there soon (without DD of course).

    If you wanted to talk, sit further back from the stage :goodvibes But yeah, not quiet.

    Yay! Another Jellyrolls fan :thumbsup2

    Haha, well, she wouldn't be allowed in! So no worries at Jellyrolls :goodvibes

    The final morning came, and I was on my own for breakfast. Geoff had a school bread with his name on it (literally, we wrote his name on the container.)

    So I went down to the food court and broke my own rule...I got bacon at Disney. :rolleyes1

    [​IMG]

    In the form of a sandwich! This was pretty tasty, but it had a little to much butter on it for me. Not sure if I'd get it again, but it was good to start the day with!

    :laughing: Yeah...that's where I was so confused a few posts ago. I'm going for a quick 2 night trip to escape wedding madness (taking a page out of norybell's handbook.) I was going to eat at Bistro de Paris, but I'm going to cancel that ADR in favor of some Mexican counter service and a good ol fashioned adult beverage and Illuminations. The next day is dedicated to the Magic Kingdom. I think I'm going to start with some room service for breakfast, then I'll probably get the hummus & broccoli slaw sandwich at Columbia Harbor House for lunch, I'll keep the day healthy by getting a snack of corn dog nuggets at Casey's. Then for dinner my parents are joining me at California Grill. If they stay over, we'll probably go to breakfast at Kona...or the Wave...or Grand Floridian Cafe...or Crystal Palace...and then the rest of Sunday is up in the air until I leave at 5. :rotfl: It's a plan!

    And I'll definitely do a review! It's my favorite!!

    So for those of you who came over from my PTR, I posted this picture of Bandit. Keep in mind that this was taken not long after he was groomed:
    [​IMG]

    Glenn mentioned that I should try Angel Eyes. And I was unsure of it because Bandit's a little sensitive.

    Well, we talked to the vet and then found the product at our local all natural pet food store (Bandit eats better than we do.) And decided to give it a go.

    2 weeks later, we asked the lady at our day camp to trim up his eyes for us as he didn't need a full grooming, but his fur was getting in his eyes. So she did and this was the result (also taken the night after day camp, so he's a little sleepy!)
    [​IMG]

    I'm super impressed considering we're only 2 weeks in!!!

    We're also leaving tomorrow for Vermont. The parental units are meeting for the first time. We're bringing Bandit. I'll wrap up this review next week with one last review and some indulgent pictures of my pooch!

    onelilspark - We use Angel Eyes on our white Havanese and her eyes are clear. We only use a tiny bit everyday, not the 1/2 t. it calls for on the bottle. Glad it's working for you! :)

    I think my problem is that I'm stressed because the wedding is less than 4 months away (I mean really when did THAT happen) but I'm such an uber planner that I really have everything pretty much done, so my stress is manifesting itself by me wanting to change everything about the Disney trip. I'm actually super happy I planned it so I have something to distract me!

    We mostly ate at home, so I didn't take any pictures of food, sorry! :laughing:

    I'm so impressed with this product, it's amazing!

    Hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday weekend (Happy belated 4th to my Fellow Americans and Happy belated Canada Day to any Canadians!)

    I guess it's time to finish this up so I can get started on my Trip Report!

    We got to the airport and had an hour and half to kill once through security (it didn't take us long to get through at all!), so we decided to go to Outback for lunch.

    I was in the mood for some cheese fries, so we got some to share:
    [​IMG]

    Then I wound up getting the chicken strips...and not eating these fries because I had enough cheese fries!
    [​IMG]
    I like their chicken strips. I mean, I love steak, but I hate cutting it with plastic, so I tend to skip it at airports.

    Geoff got sirloin strips on a Caesar Salad.
    [​IMG]

    He liked the flavor, but found the steak to be very hard to cut with the plastic knife, so that kind of ruined it.

    Other than that, we enjoyed our last bit of Florida food before heading back home! I do enjoy sitting in airports with food rather than just grabbing something to go.

    Thanks for joining me on this adventure! I'll post the link to my Trip Report once I get it started!!


    ETA: Trip Report Link See? I keep my promises!
