    Looks like you're having a lovely time!! I truly thought having gone last year for Christmas, it would have been one of those "been there, done that" experiences. I am so very dearly finding out how UNTRUE that statement is! Have enough fun for us all!

    Last night was the luau at the polynesian. Interesting change in menu though :/ gone is the tangerine salad and pineapple to be replaced with potato salad and asian apple pear slaw :/ neither of which are things I consider good food items to be served outside in the heat really but ok!

    The ribs have gone too replaced by slices of pork loin with bbq sauce.

    Sadly the wonderful volcano lava cake has also been replaced by milk chocolate macadamia nut moose! A much lighter and unremarkable cake with annoying little nuts all through it.

    I probably prefer the pork to the ribs but the other changes are bleurgh.

    We'll be updating the menu on the site as soon as I can get the details to our menu elf (AKA Wendy)

    Hollywood studios today for the fantasmic dinner package at mama melrose. Melroses is kinda variable at the best of times but it CAN be better than brown derby on a good day and the atmosphere is nice. here's hoping!

    We'll do MM then wander round. Great movie ride for sure, perhaps the animation training workshop before waiting for the early fantasmic and then out to the osbourne lights :yes:

    Oh... Mama Melrose!

    Used to be one of my favorites! :yes:

    Years ago they had a grilled Prime Rib that was the best tasting thing I ever put in my mouth.

    Keith, we have eaten twice at the Brown Derby since they got the new chef and changed the menu. It was wonderful both times and certainly a HUGE improvement over what they had there before.

    Bet that's because it's been so heavily anticipated you just want it to live up to it.
