I will not update until I get home so stick around.

We have been kicking around coming back in May.. I want to come back in early May but DH says June...ick..too hot then and the FLower show is over with. Maybe we can compromise and come back the last week of May?

Have a good night all!
Woohoo! I'm going the last weekend in May The 30th to June 3rd. I know it's gonna be hot, but its Disney, land of blasting AC in every attraction and store

Love the report: Had a question?

Hi MickeyNicki!

Loving the live report. As I am reading through your report and knowing that it is your mission to eat at every restaurant at wdw once, I was wondering which table side restaurant's do you still have to eat at? One more question, out of all of your CS and TS restaurants so far, which one is your favorite in each category (CS/TS)?

Since Nicki's partying w/o us, hopefully she won't mind a bit of a derail. She can get us back on track, when she gets home. I'm going to have to send my hubby in search of Nuvo. I don't know where he can find it around here. Knowing my luck, Epcot's probably the closest place.

So I had one.
Then I had another the next day
And another the day after that.
It was that delicious. An Almond treat of goodness (and I don't even really like almonds but this is yummy) GO BACK AND TRY IT!
Thanks to your suggestion my DH & I shared our 1st Pithiviers a couple weeks ago. It was very good, & 1 was a great snack for the 2 of us. I'm sure we'll get another, when we find ourselves in France & looking for a snack.

It is a great girly drink even the bottle is pretty and girly it looks like a bottle of perfume! yet men love to drink it as well.. it takes a real man to drink a sparkling pink drink
lol... I thought the same thing. I was worried it may taste a bit like perfume too, so I passed.

We've never tried the cannoli. We usually pass on it everywhere, because we have a place across the street that makes the best I've ever had. I'll have to add the one in Italy to our list to see how it compares.

That's a great time to be at WDW! It's warm enough for the water attractions, but not too hot to be walking around. (That said, I'm a Floridian, so we may have a different opinion of nice weather. ) I think you'll have a great trip that time of year though.

I will be going to Disney in a couple of weeks and I have reservations for some of the same places that you reviewed and I have really enjoy each of your reviews. I noticed that you got a filet at the Wave and I was wondering if that was a special request because I do not see it on the Menu that is listed on allears.net. I am actually staying at the Contemporary so if I could get a filet at the Wave then I would be so excited. Steak is my favorite and I did not see that option so that is why I did not book the Wave. I may have to change it now if so!

I hope Nicki doesn't mind me answering her question, but I had the same dish as she had and it IS on the regular menu - it is listed as the beef tenderloin. They also have a pork tenderloin which is wonderful.

Hey Girl! I've got my eyes on the fruit tart at Kringla... wonder if it's good... how bad can it be with fruit, pastry cream, and crust, huh? we'll see! Cait. loves the chocolate mousse at the french bakery... last time she had it, it was delicious (I managed to sneak a bite too!)

I think we're gonna change our ressies a bit (hotel choices only) we're still going to come down on the 23rd of Oct til the 1st of Nov. BUT I don't think we'll be staying at the Poly ( ) it's not looking very good for that at the moment... but we'll still go to the Tambu for some drinks I'll let you know what we decide though....

Can't wait to hear about the massage... I love getting a massage... Have fun at Chef Mickey's!

Hi everyone from home...bummer...but we did book a bounceback before we left...June 3 to the 7th and DH picked the resort, the CR main building with a MK view..40% off! He was really into the resort when we went to the Wave and Chef Mickeys this morning and I reminded him that we stayed there in 05 but the wing units and we didnt like it but it was his turn to choose so what can I say?

So far I think we will try China for dinner, Cali Grill for dinner and either Kona or GFC again....hmmm need to get on this right away!

Updates coming soon!

Hey Nicki, we'll be down there during the same time frame. We will be there June 5-12th staying at SSR. We called today to make our dinner reservations. We will be trying Spoodles, California Grill, Coral Reef and Rose & Crown Pub. We haven't eaten at any of these before. We will also be dining at Raglan Road, where we have to go when we are down there. It is our favorite! (Any suggestions on these places?)

Your reports are totally awesome. So sad that you had to go home today, but June is just around the corner!

No not like a biscotti in that it is soft. and creamy somehow? Oh really I am dying to get my hands on one when we get there. I think it's worth a try for you.
