Day 8 - Thursday 26th April

Last day

Our last day boooooo! This was very much a low key day with not much happening; our flight was at 5.30 so wed booked a shuttle for 1ish. We decided to go out for a final leisurely brunch/lunch at one of our absolute faves, Friendly's We checked out of our beloved Comfort Inn and stashed our bags before strolling down I Drive one last time.

We got to Friendly's about 11.15. What a beautiful sight it was.



We headed in and it was dead, so we were happy to get a dreamy booth seat right in the middle of the restaurant. We had a really sweet server who didnt mind my indecisiveness and general inability to pick something off the menu. Eventually, we were ready to roll for our weird late brekkie/early lunch eating extravaganza. Firstly, milkshakes! I just think everybody needs to get a milkshake when they go to Friendlys, they are so SO good!

I got the incredibly butter pecan double thick shake which tragically I dont seem to have a pic of, and Ben went for the timeless strawberry Fribble (what they call some of their milkshakes)



For lunch, I opted for the Indecisive Special AKA Create Your Own Munchie Mania which I think might just be the best name for a dish in the history of dishes.

I could pick any 3 from these enticing options:

Cheeseburger Sliders

Loaded Waffle Fries

Waffle Fries

Mac & Cheese Bites

Mini Mozzarella Sticks

Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins

Pepperoni Pizza Bites

I went for the sliders, the loaded waffle fries, and the pizza bites. It came out and looked amazing and I was very excited, but unfortunately it just fell a bit flat. Everything was okay but it wasnt super hot or flavourful or seasoned enough. A bit of a shame, I should have just got a sammie and fries and been done with it but hey, thats chronic indecisiveness and food FOMO for you!





Benj was much more sensible and went for the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato bisque, with a side of waffle fries because he just felt he needed some waffle fries in his life that day. His was really really good, the soup was so flavourful! I was mega jelly but also happy that he was happy, and he ate the whole lot!







I was defeated! The several gallons of ice cream Id drunk alongside my meal probably didnt help in all honesty, but there was also a lottttttt of food.



The bill was pleasingly minimal and we paid up and got the heck out of there. It was about 12.30 by now so pretty perfect timing for us to get back to the Comfort Inn, collect our bags and wait for our shuttle.

The Mears shuttle came a bit late and it was all a bit stressful because the driver seemed incredibly stressed out and no one was really sure why. We loaded our bags in the van and went off to our second stop where things got even more tense because there was 1 more person than the lady had expected and lets just say she was not happy about it at all. We sat there for about 10 minutes while she called her boss and spoke to the people then called her boss again...eventually I guess there was space because all the people got in the van and we set off to MCO. Side note - Mears shared shuttles are really great and so cheap and Id def recommend them, we just got a bit of a crazy driver. It happens. It was still really cheap though.

We arrived at MCO and bought some snacks with our remaining dollars, including this exciting houmous/bagel thin combo which I was pretty psyched for!



Our plane left on time and we were given this little menu to peruse. A good line up, we thought!



Can you imagine my joy at seeing the creamy mushroom farfalle!? Dream! In a shock move though, I opted for the Teriaki Chicken! Let me explain. Basically, Id been really wanting to try Panda Express all holiday but we literally hadnt seen it anywhere! I then read there was one at our gate at MCO so got excited all over again, but when we looked there was no Panda Express to be seen so Im not sure what Id been looking at Anyway, so when I saw that on the menu I thought I may as well try it - and it was really really good! Im skipping ahead though, Benj got his lacto-ovo menu first which yet again was vegan It was some kind of roasted aubergine ragu and he said it was actually really nice. Yet again he was devod by the meagre pudding offering of mandarins... bless him. I wonder if one day hell actually get lacto-ovo when he asks for it!?



I took photos of all the elements of my dinner because I was really impressed with it!

Exciting American cheese!



Yummy spread!



The worlds GREATEST plane pudding OMG this was so good! I ate it a while later while I watched a movie!



And my meal itself! This was so so good; it was sweet, sticky and tangy, the perfect balance of each. I loved it!



Overall this was a very enjoyable airplane meal experience for us, apart from Benjis lame pudding. Fast forward about 6 hours to breakfast...

I was bought a delicious cheese croissant, a blueberry yoghurt, and a cereal bar. The croissant was really nice, I didnt fancy the yoghurt and I saved the Aussie bar! It was nice when I ate it at home!







I dont seem to have photos of Bens but he definitely got the Aussie bar and also another cereal bar, and we think some fruit too. Yum!

So that was technically the last holiday food we ate but I do feel its important to share our food haul that I artfully arranged for Instagram when we got back



Pretty impressive, huh! We were eating this for weeks afterwards and it was so nice to know we had a stash of American treats to delve into when we were having a bad day or had serious Disney blues! Which was like, every day immediately following the holiday. Sigh.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

So thats it folks! I really hope youve all enjoyed my food trippie and Im so so sorry its taken so long to complete! This little week away really was so much fun and such a treat, were both so so glad we saved so hard to make it happen, on top of our big California trip We both have really fond memories of the week, and it was great to know we COULD do a week and still feel like wed had a decent trip. I think we packed a lot into those 7 days! Obviously the food was pretty much all awesome too, as is so often the case with Florida holidays! I think my favourite meal was the lobster I had at Bahama Breeze because it was so unusual and such a great blend of flavours! Close second would be our lunch at The Polite Pig because the food was delish and it was lovely to share a few appetisers, enjoy a cocktail and sit outside soaking in the atmosphere of Disney Springs Benjs favourite meal was Yard House! He absolutely loved the veggie buffalo wings, it was the first time wed ever had them, and again it being our first evening just made it even more special His second favourite was our dinner at The Plaza; he says it was lovely to eat at the MK and the atmosphere was really nice, plus his Fried Green Tomato sandwich was the bomb.com!

Overall, this was an amazing week-long bonus trip with incredible food, super fun experiences, and memories well treasure forever Thank all you all for reading and for leaving such lovely comments! Until the next trippie! xxxxxxxxx

Loved your new trip report. We are considering doing just a week next year, so it was great to see just how much you managed to fit in.

Ive just finished your TR after starting it last year before my holiday. I tried the jackfruit tacos on our arrival night and Im pleased I tried them but not sure I would again. I think it was the texture or maybe the fact wed been up about 20 hours! Anyway loved the rest of the report and looking forward to the next one.
