Haha, Yes thats my DF all over!

He veto'd Teppan Edo and also Boma from our list! But I managed to keep the Tusker house reservation because he gets to meet Donald in his safari gear!

Also we opted for BOG breakfast rather than lunch as at least he can get a 'fry up'!

Hope you are having a good time!

Not to put a spoiler in but you need to get Teppen Edo back on the table its awesome, how about Boma for breakfast? Youíve got bacon, sauasage, pancake and a CYO omelette station plus a few more adventurous things to try

Travel Day 2

Cafe Nero


Our alarm this morning was 4:45am, a violation of my human rights Iím sure but I powered through. Normally my stomach goes all queasy on me when I fly and I canít eat before but today it was fine. We decided on sausage baps from Cafe Nero and I got a Hot Chocolate.



The bread on these was nicely toasted and piping hot but the sausages were only luke warm, not sure if thatís how they normally are it seemed a bit odd. My hot chocolate also tasted like bitter cocoa powder at the start so not sure what went wrong with that either.

Total of £9.45, filled a hole but nothing great would probably go somewhere else next time.

Virgin Atlantic

Choices for food were Chicken Curry, Sausage and Mash or Creamy Tomato and mozzarella pasta. I hate plane food with a passion, if its curry it smells like curry (yes they all smell the same to me and I donít like them, a very unpopular opinion I know) and the rest all smells like each other. I went for the pasta, took one sniff and although it smelt like a tomato pasta sort of concoction I wasnít feeling brave enough to try it. It also came with a pot of Boursin and crackers, creamy pesto pasta salad (cold food so not going anywhere near it, although had my main been pesto pasta I probably would have had a personality transplant and tried it) and a small GU Passionfruit cheesecake pot. It was a Passionfruit cheesecake cake top with a passionfruit compote at the base. The top was nice, light and fruity but the compote felt congealed and I left that. BF managed to polish off my portion of cheese and crackers before trying his Sausage and Mash. The mash has Parmesan cheese on so he didnít touch that and the sausages were graded as mediocre.

They also brought round a light afternoon tea, a cheese and tomato chutney sandwich which we both declined, a packet of honey, butter and salted crisps and a nutty nougat bar. BF liked the crisps so ate mine when I offered them up, they just sounded a bit too weird for me.

I must say the flight to JFK was great, the cabin crew were fantastic and had no problem with giving out two of the drinks we were ordering. I know it sounds hard core but I was drinking tea, although 7 cups in one flight is my new record.

Wendyís JFK Airport

We arrived at JFK to a lovely quick immigration queue and felt like we were winning, we then quickly learnt we had a two hour delay to add to our 4 hour connection time.

I hadnít eaten since breakfast so roughly 10 hours and I was feeling rather peckish. I went for the 4 piece chicken tenders and fries.



These were good, not Disney chicken nuggets good but they did their job, fries were good and Iím glad to have skin on fries - not enough places in the UK serve these.

DF went for a Baconator with no cheese (I did warn you this would happen a lot) he said it was alright but from the reviews heíd heard he was expecting something much better. We are both tired and cranky so maybe this has impacted our opinion.

Enjoying the writing, nice level of detail

The dual temperature sausage bap sounds familiar, provably they microwaved it from cold as a complete sandwich with the sausage taking way longer to heat up than the bread. So you'll get either cold sausage or inedible bread. Better if they heat the sausage a bit separately first.

Shame Wendys disappointed, we almost went there but ended up at Chick fil-A instead. Looking forward to more lol.

Well we've got all our ADR's booked currently, but we have 2 for Ohana, one of which im planning on cancelling. So we might be able to squeeze Teppan Edo back in

We are currently planning on returning in 2020 with my parents, so all of the more adventurous ADRs are currently planned for then as it will be 3 against 1 haha!

Our list is currently: Tusker house breakfast, 50s Prime Time, Skipper Canteen, Ohana Dinner, Garden Grill Dinner & Breakfast, Kona Cafe, Trails end brunch, Cali Grill brunch, BOG breakfast, Sci-Fi & Yachtsman.

We do have a long list of snacks that we want to conquer too!

I also agree with you about Zellotape trying to fit Teppen Edo back in if they can, as it is very good. We actually have it booked for our last evening meal before home time.

Thanks Iím really enjoying writing it this year

I think half of the disappointment from Wendyís was the dire terminal at JFK and the news about the delay but I would try again, not sure if itís the fact your trapped at the airport so they donít have to try as hard with food quality
