That main dining room lunch looks terrific. I think pinnacle lunch was today, but  those that went to the main dining room may have won out.

I don’t know what the Pinnacle lunch was (although it usually seems quite nice), but they didn’t even advertise that they were having the extra special items on the MDR buffet today. Everyone who showed up was pleasantly surprised! 😊

And, cool T-shirt. Didn’t realize you were from Florida. No wonder you didn’t understand about the handle on the stadium blanket😄

We love Orlando Florida.

Been there 30 times and coming back next October.

 


Yep, one of the few people who live in FL who was actually born in Florida. 
 

And, I have a love/hate relationship with Florida most of the time. 😂

 


I mean, c’mon, have you SEEN our headlines?

We have done Disney many times and Disney Springs has changed enormously.

Shopping and food are fantastic in Florida too.

About 18 years ago, we bought Disney timeshare points. We take friends and family several times a year. 
 

They are priced insanely high now, but I don’t regret making that purchase one bit. We have adult grandchildren who still talk about their childhood trips to Disney. It was wonderful to be a part of that. 🥰

We have lots of photos of Pauline with Disney characters.

They are doing a tremendous job for the President's cruise,the food photos are outstanding.

Are you going next year on Allure Presidents Cruise. We booked once we found out it was out of Barcelona. Too bad it’s prior to the TA. 
 

Actually booked the 9/13 first until we found out they screwed up on the dates.

All went well with 150 CP. We found out that a “private booking” had enough people for 1/2 the restaurant and were disappointed that they couldn’t have the entire venue for their party. The specialty dining dept ended up accommodating them with a chef’s table type experience. 🙄😀

 

There was another large table (12 people or so) celebrating a birthday for someone named Raul. The waiters and manager were paying quite a bit of attention to them as well, and I think that might have been part of the reason they wouldn’t shut the restaurant down for the other group. 
 

So much drama. 😂

 

We has fun though. We had table-side Caesar salad. Do you know we got crappy croutons again? But so much shaved Parmesan, that I just didn’t care.

We shared the beef tenderloin for two. It was perfect.

And dessert was the chocolate peanut butter tart.

The dates don’t work for us for next year’s President’s Cruise, unfortunately. But I would definitely do it again. I will watch for the announcement for 2021. 😀

Is this supposed to show the bridge in real-time?

Yes, that is supposed to be live streaming from a camera on the bridge.

You couldn’t have adult grandchildren OMG you both look too young for that. Truly!

 

your review has been great!

 

Glad your ears are better.

Glad to hear it worked out for you all.  

 

That dessert sounds amazing.  They had me at peanut butter.  I would have just had 6 of those for dinner.

No.

We are on Allure in June and already booked our flights to come to Orlando early October next year.

They really promote the fried cheesecake, since it is their signature dessert. But I really did like this one better. The fried cheesecake was, overall, just too mushy and warm. Mark got it twice though, so...
