Enjoying reading your food report 😊 Thank you. I never realised that you could get half and half large pizzas (we like Pepperoni but kids always want cheese).

Love the pan au chocolate looks like cbr has the nice ones, Por had the horrible sticky ones when we were there last, thought it was maybe a moderate hotel thing but maybe not.

great report, it's making me soooo hungry and really needing to go to WDW again!

We loved the pizzas at CBR, glad you are having a lovely time. look forward to more food ideas!

Really enjoying this so far.

Nice to see lots of "out of the ordinary" meals.

Those "jerk chips" look nothing like the ones we got at CBR! Ours were like kettle chips with lots of lovely jerk seasoning on them. How disappointing :(

We only ate at the food court a couple of times but my husband loved the Cuban sandwich they did. If they still do it, it's worth trying!

You're doing so well to keep this up! Really enjoying reading it :)

Loving this Vickie! Very tempted to not upgrade to full DDP after reading this. Glad you're having a great time!

Loving your report! It's amazing how much and the variety of food you can get on the QSDP, puts our previous efforts to shame! Looking forward to reading more :)

Day 8 - CBR, Blizzard Beach and Animal Kingdom

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments. It's good to hear that my food ramblings are being helpful to some of you.

Today we had breakfast at CBR. However, it was more like brunch as we overslept and didn't get to the food court until after 11am. All but one station stopped serving breakfast items at 11am, but I managed to get what I fancied by asking nicely :) Izzy had the most unusual breakfast of the holiday. We used our resort mugs and swapped the drinks for snacks, which were saved for later. We ordered:
Me - Plain pancakes with bacon and fruit with a dark chocolate and sea salt Kind bar (I do like these!).
Andy - Western omelette and breakfast potatoes with a raisin and oatmeal cookie.
Izzy - Pasta with marinara sauce and meatballs! with a chocolate chip cookie.
Brodie - Bounty platter with a chocolate chip cookie.

Breakfast/brunch was enjoyed by all, even the pasta and meatballs :d: I saw someone else with pancakes and fruit - a lovely helping if fresh raspberries, blueberries and grapes. So, I'm going to look out for that if we get there in time for proper breakfast service again.

Lunch was from Lottawatta Lodge at Blizzard Beach. We didn't have much as we'd had such a late breakfast, but just wanted something to nibble on. We got:
Me - Harvest Salad with Chicken: Diced Apples, Dried Cherries, Candied Pecans, Cheddar, and Raspberry Walnut Dressing. I also got a Frozen Hot Cocoa. Apologies for all the capitals but I've just copied and pasted from the Dibb menu page.
Izzy and Brodie - Chicken tenders with chunky cut chips and a bottle of water.

As I fancied something light and fresh, I gave the salad a go. I was pleased that the dressing came in a pot on the side so I could dress it myself. I had to take the dried cherries out as they had a cinnamon flavour, but enjoyed the rest. The apple and pecans made it more interesting than a standard salad and it was just what I needed. Brodie had 3 of the chicken tenders and Andy had 1 as he wasn't really hungry but was tempted when he saw them. Izzy enjoyed the chunky chips with mayonnaise.

Dinner was at the Yak and Yeti table service restaurant in Animal Kingdom. We had $50 on a Landry's card to use towards the bill. We didn't have an adr, but showed our card and were seated in about 5 minutes. We ordered:
Me - Teriyaki Chicken: Marinated Chicken, Pineapple-Onion-Pepper skewers, Teriyaki Glaze, Coconut-Ginger Rice, stir-fried Vegetables.
Andy - Bhaktapur Duck: Roasted half ducking, plum BBQ sauce, jasmine rice, stir-fried vegetables.
Izzy - Kalbi Steak and Coconut Shrimp: Grilled marinated flat iron steak, pineapple-mango salsa, coconut shrimp, chili plum sauce, wasabi mashed potatoes, stir-fried vegetables. We asked for the steak medium rare and swapped the wasabi mash for rice. We also asked for the salsa and plum sauce to be served on the side.
Brodie - 44 Farms Burger: Texas burger served with lettuce, tomato and onion, with fries. We asked for the onion to be left off and swapped the fries for rice.

This was all really good! I can see why it's popular with dibbers. It was lovely to get a good portion of vegetables with our meals too. I wasn't overly impressed with our server though as he seemed quite put out by the changes we made to the children's meals, saying that he would try but couldn't promise anything and I felt like we were being difficult. He also didn't bother to offer to refresh our drinks until we'd just about finished our meal either. Server aside, we'd definitely go back there :)

The only other thing that we got today was a couple more snacks when we got back to the resort at around 9.45pm. A pain au chocolat for Izzy and a raisin and oatmeal cookie for Andy.

Tomorrow the plan is breakfast at CBR (before 11am!), Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

I forgot that you could use a Landry Card at Yak & Yeti. Food looked great too.

This is a great thread / we've always done DDP with table service but DH Keeps suggesting we do the QS next time but I'm scared I'll go hungry (I'm a big eater) plus i always thought it was just pizza, burgers n chips...!

beegnjasmum 7 Apr 17 08:16 AM

Brilliant thread, some beautiful looking food. Like you I don't drink coffee and that Starbucks chocolate drink looks amazing.

Have a great holiday. So impressed that you are managing to keep up with the report in such detail.
