    I'm in. I've been away sulking in a corner, as we have no trip this year, but its time to join in the fun again and tag along for some wonderful food and inspiration

    Thanks! I think they only did it for a year or so. The woman I dealt with was wonderful (wish I could remember her name!)

    Thanks & welcome!

    Thank you! They mostly did it for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. When I called the woman that arranged it suggested the wording on the sign. I thought it was really nice.

    I will be the one sulking next year. We have deciding no trips I 2014. :eek:
    I am glad that you are rejoining the fun!


    Welcome & thank you!

    I am sorry for the delay in answering. We took a somewhat spur of the moment trip to Baltimore this weekend to see my beloved Red Sox beat my husbands Orioles! :goodvibes I will try to post another flashback later this week!

    As I said we went to Baltimore this weekend. We had the most wonderful "fishy" lunch yesterday. Honey seared scallops, clams casino, ahi tuna salad, fish tacos and a fish BLT. We shared everything and everything was beyond wonderful. And I still say it is all because of the Disney magic at Coral Reef! :thumbsup2

    I'm in! I'm so glad you and DS are more open to trying seafood options, and it is all because of Disney. I love love love scallops! The scallops at Kona are awfully tasty (preview of what I will say when I get to that point of my current dining review). ;) Your ADRs look great and yummy! I'll be looking forward to reading. :thumbsup2

    Oops! I've been a bad Diser and not checked the Dining Board in a few weeks outside my subscriptions! But I'm here and comparing notes for the other days that you are in the parks. I'm so excited to see you guys again! :banana:

    I love your back story since it could be my own with Em. Time is short and this could be one of the last girl trips for us as well for some time. :)
    The Proud to Call You My Son card, menu, and diver greeting were awesome! :love:

    Less than 2 weeks!!

    Hmmm... we are thinking of popping in to Kona for sushi ... maybe we'll give the scallops a try!

    Looking forward to seeing you two as well! :cool1: Just over a week for us! I cannot wait. Our trips only overlap by a couple of days right?

    Welcome!!

    We arrive the 16th and leave the 30th so we'll be at WDW for what... 5 days at the same time??

    I actually looked at Trails End for dinner on the 16th but we just can't commit to a TS that night since it is our travel day. I sound like a stalker!! :laughing:

    Not a stalker at all. I actually think we are going to now hit Trails End for lunch. I am at work so I don't remember what dinner that night will now be.

    You didn't think that I wouldn't make any changes now did you? Lol

    I wi try to update tonight! Just a few things .

    Ok, do did anybody think that I wouldn't make any changes?! :rolleyes1 I have changed around a few things ... all changes listed in post #2.

    Decided that I wanted to hit Trails End for lunch not dinner. Really wanted to go to Narcoossee's so I had to move Rose & Crown from dinner to lunch. Wanted to try Kona for sushi so I moved Yak & Yeti to a different night. And just tonight I swapped in San Angel over Marrakesh.

    Now I think it is final. Or as final as any of our trips are. I am sure that we will make changes on the fly.

    One more work day, then I am sure very little sleep on Friday night before getting on a train at 7am at Saturday morning to start our 28 hour journey "home". :yay: :dance3: :banana: :woohoo:

    Yes, me, me I think that you would make changes. It makes perfect sense to me... I'm still looking to move a few things and add a few!!

    We are doing San Angel Inn as well - we'll have to compare notes on that one!

    I wish you and Andrew an AWESOME Trip!! :cheer2:

    Welcome all and thank you! Yes, today is Day One. I sent Rachel some updates for the Live thread but definitely saved plenty for this review! :thumbsup2

    We stuck to plan today, Paradiso 37 for lunch and 'Ohana for dinner. Both were terrific!

    You would think after 28 hours on a train we would be ready to go today but alas, we are wiped out. Heading to bed early tonight so hit the ground running tomorrow!

    So Day Two brought some changes. We had an excellent lunch at Coral Reef but the heat changed our dinner plans. Decided it was just too hot to deal with going to DHS for Sci Fi so we cancelled and made an ADR at Biergarten. Then decided it was also too hot to hang out in EPCOT so we cancelled that to come back & chill a bit at the hotel before going to Artist Point. The menu was different than the ones I have seen online. We were told the changes were just made this week. We had a WONDERFUL dinner. I am soooo happy we made the change!
