Shrimp Scampi - Linguini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Asparagus tossed in a Garlic sauce


"I had Tiramisu for dessert but I was so upset by the pacing of my meal that I forgot to take a picture. As soon as I was seated my server took my drink and appetizer order. She then brought out a bread service and took my entree order. My appetizer was presented within 5 minutes of ordering it. I ate 3 of my zucchini fries and my entree was delivered to the table. It was as if they had the entree already made and waiting to deliver to a customer. I was very disappointed in the timing."
Ha Barb! I remember you sharing that! Your kids should appreciate your humor!

We found the food at Tony's to be brought out too quickly in the past as well. It's like they had them lined up and ready to grab 'n go! Em had the shrimp and pasta as well and really liked it.

Tony's is one of those restaurants that I've always wanted to try, it feels like I've been walking past it for years and I've never got to actually check it out

The location and themeing look wonderful but if there is one thing that I simply can't stand is being rushed through a meal

It's still on my list for a possible lunch visit next time round - Mmm, we'll see

Thanks for the review Michelle and thanks for posting Barb

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!
I had a really fun time doing these updates.
I'm glad you all enjoyed the V & A Pics.
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share them!

I was just looking through the thread, enjoying everyone elses updates, seeing things I didn't try or wanted to try..LOL

I am missing Disney already!
The week went by so fast.


I feel the same way Linda67, I hate being rushed. I like to enjoy my TS meals at Disney.

I don't know if it's because the restaurants had just opened for dinner?
I experienced the "rush" at Sanaa & Tony's...and both my dinners were when the restaurants were just opening for dinner. Next trip maybe I will try to schedule later dinners...not for restaurant opening times.

I tried alot of restaurants for the first time this trip...Flying Fish, Citricos, Sanaa, Le Cellier, Kona Cafe breakfast (yum)
I was so pleased with FF and Citricos. I really love the dlx DDP.

Hopefully I can do Live updating again when DS17 and I (Oh wait DS will be 18 by then! ) go to WDW for MNSSHP.

Hello everyone! Sorry about the lack of updates today. I spent the day preparing for and then hosting a bridal shower for my nephew's fiancee. The shower was modeled after high tea at the Grand Floridian's Garden View Tea Room with tea sandwiches, fruit & cheese, etc., but for dessert I went with some local favorites.


From "That's So Sweet" in Lexington, IL....




Mini-Cheesecakes
Flavors: White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate-Strawberry, Peach Amaretto, Key Lime, Salted Caramel, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, & Turtle




And from "Sugar Mama Bakery" in Bloomington, IL...




Mini-Cupcakes
Flavors: Snickerdoodle, Red Velvet, Chocolate Hoo-hah (filled with marshmallow), Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Vanilla





One more time...




Mini-Cheesecakes



- or -





Mini-Cupcakes




Of course it was impossible for me to choose, so I had to have both.



Coming up next, some live updates from Disney World.

And then for our last update of the day we have the final one from 4HppyCamprs, who's trip ended yesterday.



She said, "Good evening Barb. This is my last report. We did not have reservations yesterday and so snacked around Animal Kingdom. I forgot to take some pictures but did get lunch pictures."



But first a snack update from...









Cottontop Tamarin Cupcake - Chocolate Cupcake with Buttercream Frosting





Then lunch from...


Restaurantosaurus










Mac and cheese Hot Dog


Heather said, "Didn't expect much from this but it was actually good and I would order again. DH had the same thing and agreed completely."






Lychee Coconut Rum Lemonade


"My mom ordered this and I took a few sips to sample. Not a combo I thought would be tasty but again worthy of a repeat."




And an interior shot...






"I guess this is my final update. All other snack must have been eaten before I remembered to snap a picture. It was a great trip and thanks for allowing me to participate!"

Too funny! This is one of my favorite movies of all time. My mother sang the good morning song to me and I have abuse my poor kids by doing the same to them. Best way to wake up the kids ever!

The desserts from the bridal shower you threw look awesome! You always do such an incredible job planning these events (such as the holiday party with a feast inspired by F&W)!

The other updates from tonight are also great. I could definitely see myself enjoying Le Cellier's scallops, a platter at Tangierine Cafe, and a lychee lemonade from Restaurantosaurus (what an interesting drink - I never would have known about it otherwise!).
