Ooooooh, Barb! I volunteer for August as well! Happy that you plan to continue the thread. Andrew and I plan on traveling from the 10th thru the 20th. I am making it my mission to eat at as many new restaurants as we can. If we are going to repeat a restauant, I am trying to make it one that we did not eat at in November or March (with the exception of Y&Y where we did eat in November).

Time to announce another of our Top 5 scorers for the

February/March Game




I am now featuring our...


#2 - nicole0992


nicole0992 traveled to Disney World to visit her daughter who is doing the Disney College Program. She and her other daughters were there from 2/9 - 2/17. nicole scored 167 points with the many updates she sent us during her trip.


Here are some of my favorite pics from her updates.




La Cantina de San Angel







"We chose an order of nachos with the meat and beans served on the side. They were delicious and really hit the spot. Lots of cheese, fresh tomatoes and sliced jalapenos. Also chose an order of cheese empanadas. These were fresh and wonderful. The chips served along side were very fresh and crunchy."



Starring Rolls Cafe





Black Forest Ham Sandwich


"It was delicious but I had to remove half the ham to be able to fit the sandwich in my mouth!"






Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake










"Too many tour groups were at the Studios yesterday so we took the boat to Epcot. My daughter was feeling like salad so we decided to stop at Liberty Inn and try their Chicken Caesar salad."























"We ordered a Mezzo Metro size Margherita Pizza to share between the 4 of us that were dining at this meal. The pizza was as delicious as always. Perfectly cooked, thin but with a crunchy crust."
















Wolfgang Puck Express





Cavatappi Chicken Alfredo with peas, bacon and parmesan


"I had the cavatappi. This is so delicious! The corkscrew shaped pasta was perfectly cooked and served with Alfredo sauce that's not too heavy. The peas are crisp and fresh, not mushy at all. The bacon crumbles provided a nice crunch to the dish. The chicken is julienned and was great as well."






Half Rotisserie Chicken with garlic butter, rosemary and mashed potatoes


"Oldest daughter had the chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. She loved it. The chicken was cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. The mashed potatoes were so creamy and definitely real potatoes. These were topped with a light gravy and fresh chopped chives."






Margherita Pizza with fresh mozzarella, torn basil, and fresh tomatoes


"My younger daughter chose the Margherita pizza. It was so yummy. The tomatoes, cheese and fresh basil were all top quality. Crust was crispy and cooked just right."




And for their desserts...











"We had creme brulee, vanilla bean cheesecake, and a chocolate chip brownie for desserts. All were great but the creme brulee was the winner. Sorry no pic of the cheesecake. My daughter dug in before I had a chance to snap a pic."





50's Prime Time Cafe















They started their dinner with...




Beer Battered Onion Rings







Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken (all white meat) served with mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and green beans


"I chose the fried chicken and was able to get all white meat as well as green beans in place of the collard greens. This was so good. Finger lickin' good. I loved everything."







Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes and green beans


"My oldest daughter also had the chicken but was served 3 pieces since she didn't switch to white meat only. She also ordered her potatoes with no gravy."







Spaghetti and "Meatballs" - Multi-grain spaghetti and vegetarian meatballs with Dad's Marinara Sauce


"My youngest didn't know what to get. She finally decided on the spaghetti with vegetarian meatballs. Bad choice for her. It was loaded with mushrooms and lots of chunky tomato sauce. She also didn't like the taste or texture of the meatballs. I tasted it and it was fine if you are vegetarian and like this sort of dish but there are much better choices here. Sauce was on par with Tony's Town Square."




And for dessert...





Dad's Brownie Sundae - Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream, Hot Fudge, and Caramel topping


"The brownie sundae was delicious! Served a la mode with vanilla cream. The girls cleaned the plate!"


"Since my daughter just picked at her dish, Cousin Cooper wasn't having none of this moving food around to get dessert! So we were served our brownie sundae and she was served her plate of spaghetti and meatballs with whipped cream, m & m's, and sprinkles. It was hysterical!"

You will be the first on my August list. Thanks so much for volunteering!

And you will be the second, Vicki! To be honest, you are part of the reason why I knew that I needed to keep this going at least through August. I knew that you, Brenda & Emily, and Ginamarie (three of our inaugural reporters) are all planning trips for that month. Now I'm hoping they will also sign up to again be live reporters.

Yahoo!! It is SO exciting to see my name up on that list- makes the trip feel more real than getting any confirmation email or paying any deposit.

Thank you so much for taking this project on through the month of August- it remains a highlight of my day to take a quick trip to WDW and drool over all the delicious food.

I am honored! And I will send more updates in August than we did in March. It was such a short trip, I sort of lost track of things. I will be a better reporter!

Now I am very happy to announce the top scorer of the

February/March Game


and winner of a (no expense ) paid trip to Disney World is...



#1 - superchime


superchime and family were at Disney World from 2/26 - 3/6.
She scored 177 points with the many updates she sent us during her trip.


Here are some of my favorite pics from her updates.




Old Port Royale






"DS with his fruit."




Shutters



She said, "I'd read some negative reviews of Shutters, so I wasn't hoping for much but apparently they have a new chef and we had a great dinner."





Vegetarian Pasta Piquant with spinach and goat cheese


"This had a little kick to it, which I liked. They also threw in some extra veggies to make up for the lack of meat."


"This was the only vegetarian option listed on the menu (besides salads) but our waitress said they could work up other options on the fly. We'll eat there again later in the week, so I appreciate that. I also explained the game to our waitress when she wondered why I was photographing the food."








"DH was excited about several options on the menu but went with the special. Pork brisket with a BBQ-ish sauce, green beans, and a yummy little side with lump crab, shrimp, and corn topped with bread crumbs and baked. He liked that the best."



Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie

















"DH and I had delicious chocolate croissants and the kids had a parfait and a framboise."























Vegetarian Burger - House-made Potato Quinoa Vegan Patty topped with a fresh Vegan Tofu-Tzatziki sauce with sweet potatoes fries



"I had my second veggie burger of the trip. This one was great, potatoes and quinoa. Very different."



And for dessert...





Kids Ice Cream Sundae






Want a bite?






Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce




Kusafiri Bakery






"They were out of elephants but the boys didn't seem to mind the substitution."




Yak and Yeti



"And of course we had the won tons for dessert!"




Fried Wontons - Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons, vanilla ice cream, honey vanilla drizzle





Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

It will be a split stay between POR riverside and AKL club level! WE also will be celebrating dd's 21st birthday, so lots of drink photos as well as food!
