Disney and Beyond - Food Trip Report May 2014 COMPLETE

We have finally taken the plunge. We have looked at literally hundreds of food and trip reports and decided to give it a go ourselves. We thought we would ease ourselves into it with a food report from our 2014 trip. We stayed 14 days offsite eating a variety of food on and offsite including days at Discovery Cove, SeaWorld and Aquatica.

I apologise that we never took any photos of the food on the plane but it was awful anyway (Thomson Dreamliner)!

Day 3

Day 3 - We visited Hollywood Studios.

We ate in Starring Rolls



Selection of cupcakes all of which were massive.

I had a Red Velvet Cupcake, DW had the Butterfinger Cupcake and DS had a Chocolate Muffin.



Cross section of Butterfinger Cupcake which was really sickly.


Cross section of Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcake - this was great.


Afternoon snack was from Hollywood Scoops



Mint Choc Chip Ice cream all round.


For dinner we went to the Longhorn Steakhouse in Vineland which is one of our favourites.



Caesar Salad to start


Hot Dog for DS which he described as the greatest he had ever had.


Parmesan Crusted Chicken for DW which she said was amazing.


I had the Rancher's Sirloin topped with bacon, egg and bordelaise sauce - really tasty.

Total cost $53 inc tip.

Day 2

Day 2 - We spent the day in the Magic Kingdom. Morning snack was from Gaston's Tavern where we shared one of these babies...


A warm cinnamon roll as big as a babies head! And some Disney coffee which was surprisingly pretty good.




Lunch was at Casey's Corner which had the most shocking service I have ever seen and the food wasn't much better given it was almost cold! DW and I shared a chilli cheese dog and DS had a plain dog. In the shambles known as the condiments bar I disappointingly couldn't find any of the famous plastic cheese.





Total cost $27.60.


Afternoon snack was a shared Soft Scoop Ice Cream from Aloha Isle in Adventureland.


We love Disney ice cream. This was the first of many...


Dinner was from the Outback Steakhouse in Vineland. We loved it here in 2012 and it was still pretty good although I chose poorly.




Complimentary bread.


Bloomin' Onion to share.


DW had Alice Springs Chicken with Aussie Fries.


DS had Kids Chicken Tenders.


I had the Teriyaki Fillet Medallions with Aussie Fries - meat was pretty chewy. The others really enjoyed theirs.

Total cost $61 inc tip.

Day 4

Day 4 - Today we visited Typhoon Lagoon

DS had a Dozen Mini Donuts (but there were actually about 9!).




DW and I had coffee and shared a Chocolate Chip Cookie and Apple Cinnamon Pastry.





In the evening we had our first ADR of the holiday at Teppan Edo in Epcot. We were really looking forward to this and the service, food quality and overall entertainment were worth the $98 we paid.

Day 5

Day 5 - We made our 8am ADR for Tusker House by the skin of our teeth. The food and character interaction were first class and it was pretty good value for money.











Total cost $74.68 inc tip


Lunchtime snack was from the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck





A new one for us at Maggianos on I Drive for dinner. After parking in the multi storey car park next door (you get a voucher from Maggianos to get this free) we were greeted by our server, Stephanie, who reminded us of her name at least a dozen times!


DW had the Taylor Street Baked Ziti which she was a bit disappointed with.


DS had Pepperoni Flatbread which was actually a starter and as it was happy hour it only cost $4!


I had the Chicken Marsala.


Food and service were really good and would highly recommend. We joined the Maggianos club before our trip and had a $10 discount coupon so total cost was only $43 inc tip.


In the evening whilst at the Boardwalk we came upon the Boardwalk Bakery and couldn't resist...








I had the Tiramisu.


DS had the Mickey Oreo Cupcake.


DW had the Strawberry Cupcake.


Cross section of Strawberry Cupcake.

Day 6

Day 6 - Breakfast was at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. Good tasty food.


DW and I shared a Sausage and Egg Flan


DS had a plan croissant with butter


Lunch was a second visit to Earl of Sandwich




DW and I shared The Original and...


...the BBQ Chicken


We also shared a Mac n cheese


DS as usual had the Pizza Sandwich


DS also had a Chocolate Brownie


We had our first ever trip to Ghirardelli and spent ages perusing the menu. We shared an Espresso Sundae which was amazing.




We had booked the Tomorrowland Terrace Wishes Dessert Party which was a good experience but not one we would do again. The desserts were a bit sickly after a while and the serving area was pretty manic. The view of Wishes was ok, but Cinderella Castle was partly obscured by trees.
