After our delicious and filling breakfast, we didn't need to eat again till dinner. As it was New Years Eve we didn't know how busy the restaurants were going to be so decided to have an earlyish dinner. We arrived just before 5pm and didn't have to wait for a table. Timed this well as shortly after the queues started.

Longhorns

On our last holiday, Longhorns was our favourite meal. Once again, it didn't disappoint. Excellent food and service.

Honey wheat bread



Sausage and cheese board - free starter with email offer



House salad



Caesar salad



Strawberry and pecan salad. This was massive and could've easily been a main meal in itself.



Renegade sirloin with parmesan crusted chicken



Renegade sirloin x2





Kids sirloin steak



Ribeye



Outlaw ribeye



Everything was delicious and the meat was cooked as requested.

We were so full, but the 6 of us decided to share the Chocolate Stampede. Really enjoyed this.





Brilliant quality and value all round. Cost approx $138 plus tip for all of us.



We then headed to Hollywood Studios for the evening to celebrate and welcome the New Year in. CM's were handing these hats out to everyone 😍



Backlot Express - Hollywood Studios

During the evening we stopped for a drink and sit down. Made use of the free refills to recharge and power through!




Had an excellent night. Was busy but not uncomfortable at all. We were expecting and had prepared ourselves for a lot worse. We were still able to get fast passes and meet characters with a minimal wait time.

Lovely food all round today and lots of happy memories made.

Food + Family + Disney = Perfect end to the year.

New Years Day.

We had a leisurely morning and no one was hungry or fancied breakfast. So I had some more of these with a cuppa. Perfect way to start 2017!



For lunch we went to Red Lobster and my parents went to House of Blues. They had been here once before and they really enjoyed the food and the gospel singers so were keen to return. No photos but they had a great time. Really pleased they went.

Red Lobster



Cheddar bay biscuits. This was one of the reasons we wanted to return. They were warm and delicious. We struggled to stop eating them!



Caesar salads come with the meal. We did over hear on the next table the server offering a soup as a replacement instead. Mr P would have preferred this. Will know to ask next time.



Kids chicken and mash



Kids popcorn shrimp



Sailors platter



Build your own combination with Walt favourite shrimp, seafood stuffed flounder and shrimp linguine alfredo plus baked potato with lobster



Again, another great family meal. Couldn't fault anything.

Goofy's Candy Store - Disney Springs

One of our daughters had been keen to create her own sweet treat.



She filled this in, we paid, then watched it being made.







Ta daaah



Something a little different and unique, rather than just picking it up off the shelf. It was much heavier than I was expecting it to be and tasted as sickly sweet as it looked.

Also saw these...







Mr P kindly purchased these for me as a surprise. I know it would be cheaper to buy a bounty bar but there is something about them that is so more-ish and enjoyable.

Ghirardelli

Whilst in Disney Springs everyone purchased a variety of different drinks. My Dad and I couldn't decide so decided to share a coke float (blast from the past - not had one of these for years) and a strawberry milkshake.



Enjoyed both. The milkshake was full of flavour. The only downside was the ordering/pick up area was completely chaotic and took a long time for our order to be completed.

Buffalo Wild Wings - Takeaway

Whilst we were in Epcot we ordered online for the first time, to pick up a Buffalo Wild Wings takeaway. Had to give an estimated time of arrival. Very smooth process. Food was hot and ready at the specified time.



We all shared this as none of us were overly hungry. We opted for plain with different flavour sauces. Hit the spot. Great use of time and would order takeaway again from here.

More lovely food and what a great place to spend NYE. I have Longhorns on my list for our off site days this year, and we are definitely going to make a candy treat at Goofys - last year we didn't go in until our last morning so we didn't do one but my youngest wanted to, so we will definitely have to this time.
