DONALDS SAFARI BREAKFAST TUSKER HOUSE

Again not the best photos as its a buffet.

This is our go to buffet place. If we had to choose one then it would be this one. It never fails us.

We had a fairly late breakfast around 10.15am. We have a tradition at the Animal Kingdom to be there for rope drop and then hit the Safari and Gorilla Trail before breakfast. It works well for us.



We had no wait as our buzzer went off as soon as we checked in which was a result.



We were shown to our table and our server gave us all the magnificent Jungle Juice we all had copious amounts of.



It wasnt long before Goofy was due to arrive. Wait or go to the buffet? To right, we went to the buffet.

All the usual offerings but a few different African inspired dishes. To be honest we dont really have those. There is just to much choice. Highlight for me wasthe carved ham. The girls live the round sausage as well. It was all good.











There were lots of lovely pastries as well.



Soon Mickey, Donald and Daisy appeared. Evie was under strict instructions that she must pose with Lily. I have the same picture from our 3 previous visits that I recreate each time. This 4th one will go alongside the other 3 into a frame to show them growing up.





We each ate way to much, the service was good and the characters good as well.

Tusker House can do no wrong in my eyes.

4 t/s credits used.

DINO BITES SNACKS

Another go to place for us. Located in Dinoland. Its a lovely little snack credit location.

Kelly had the hot fudge sundae which she enjoyed.



I went for the ice cream sandwich which epic but I couldnt finish it.



Evie just had a vanilla ice cream.



Lovely.

PLANET HOLLYWOOD

I thought wed give this a go. Not been for years and we like these kind of places.



We walked straight in with no wait. It was incredibly different inside from our last visit. You could tell they spent a fair amount rebranding it.



Standard drinks although Kelly had a beer.



We decided to push the boat out and get the High Roller Sampler for four. It had Chicken Crunch, Texas Tostados, Buffalo Wings, Five Cheese Dip, and Fried Jumbo Shrimp. This was expensive but tasty although Lily didnt each much.



For mains I went for the ribs. These were fine but nowhere near the quality of The Polite Pig ribs. It was also was served on a novelty bench for some reason. It looked cool but eating was awkward due to how high it was. It came with triple fries( 3 different kinds of fries) These were just ok.





Kelly fancied pasta so had Penne pesto with brocolli and chicken. Well that was the plan



Evie was being really indecisive went for Planet Hollywoods take on lasagne. I believe the pasta is deep fried. She took one bite and hated it. Too rich for her so Kelly swapped. She didnt like Kellys either



Lily on the kids plan was persuaded to not have Mac and cheese for once. She went for chicken fingers and fries. I dont know whos fingers they were based on but it was a massive portion for a kid. She didnt eat much. She wished she had stuck to the Mac and cheese.



There was a nice atmosphere inside during the meal. One particular server really enjoyed performing and singing along to YMCA when it came on.



For desserts Lily didnt want anything. Kelly and Evie both went for the sticky toffee pudding which they enjoyed. How they managed to eat it Ill never know



I asked if I could swap my dessert for a milkshake, not one of the ludicrous ones, but was told no. Not sure why. Same price. I sulked and said I didnt want anything then.

Overall this was ok. It wasnt great, it wasnt bad. We probably shouldnt have ordered the appetisers and looked into Evies dish a bit more but like I said a nice fun atmosphere. Expensive if not on the ddp.

FINAL SNACK CREDITS AND DISNEY THOUGHTS

So we were off to Universal for the next stage of our trip in the morning but unfortunately had a lot of credits left over. We are just plain rubbish with snacks. We had 8 q/s meals left over as well. One due to Toy Story Extra Magic and the other Ive no idea why hadnt used it. We decided to convert those to snacks. Added with our remaining snack credits it left us with 34

Now as we are morons we didnt think to swap them out at somewhere at Disney Springs, oh no we did it at our resort shop where the choice was rubbish.

Lets just say the kids friends will think we bought them some presents back(to be honest they must expect this as we do it everytime)

So 30 snacks used on tat. 4 kept for pastries in the morning before we go to Universal.



Said pastries. 2 of each, cinnamon bun and chocolate croissant(again)


So thats us off from Disney moving onto Universal then offsite. Ive enjoyed the food but I think if we go again then we will go QSDP if free dining is offered. I think weve had our fill and also being tied to the DDP. Thoughts might change in time and probably will knowing me but there is a lot of options on the QSDP plan.

So next up, Universal.

Thanks for reading

Shame about Teppen Edo it was one of my favourites from last year. Tusker House is also our go to meal, always lovely and one meal I would pay for.
Im now also considering qsdp. Cant be doing with the adrs anymore. I know you can change them but its just a bit to structured and I love planning everything!
Fab report so far, looking forward to universal.

Great report so far.

The day you had pastries, Tusker house, ice cream, then Planet Hollywood has made me feel full just thinking about it. I know everyone is different, but I know if my girls had to sit through the DDP volume of meals etc, they would struggle.
