That steak at Texas Roadhouse looks amazing! I am really going to try and get there this year because we didn't think much of Outback & Mannys on our previous trips!

I will defintely needto try Texas roadhouse, looks great and we also love longhorns, just so many places to eat at! I need to check out you other report too!
I think all kids get so tired with the whole holiday thing, DD changes quite a bit to being a bit grumpy too after about ten days!
Texas Roadhouse is definitely worth ago. Weve gone the other way. Weve decided were definitely a hotel family

We didnt rate Outback in 2017. We ended up ding Mannys twice. First time Ive already reported on and we enjoyed. Second time Ive yet to do but its a very different story second time

BEACHES AND CREAM

Another first for us. This actually is a place Ive booked several times before but Ive always cancelled for one reason or another. Im not going to lie that I also nearly cancelled this one a couple of days in advance. Although I had spent less so far on spends I was a little reluctant to pay the Disney prices. As we missed out on BOMA I decided wed stick with it. In the end I was really pleased we did.

It was a fairly early adr at 4.30pm as the plans for afterwards were to walk from the Beach Club to the World Showcase via the International Gateway for the evening. The early adr turned out to be a godsend us when we turned up they were preparing a massive corporate event outside overlooking the lake. Parking would have been incredibly awkward later on.

We had a little look around the Beach Club first and its a lovely resort. However, like many of the monorail resorts there is a lot of footfall around the hotel which Im not sure Id like. No question for me that Port Orleans French Quarter is the place for us.



We had a little trouble finding Beaches and Cream but we soon did. Everyone says it, but I was surprised how small it was. We checked in and took a seat outside. We had a good look at the pool area. Lovely but too busy.

We waited about 10 minutes before we were called. I was hoping for a booth but we were shown instead to the first round table by the door. It was wonky as well so not ideal. Our server came quickly and she was a lovely lady. I wish I took note of her name but I didnt. I got the impression that everyone knew her as people popped into say hi to her.

We had a look at the menu before ordering. This was going to a main and dessert affair today! The menu isnt massive but there was definitely enough on there to interest me.



Lily Belle went for a hot dog and fries. Fairly standard stuff but she enjoyed it.



Kelly went for the Angus Beef Burger. Blend of ground Angus Brisket and Short Rib with Cheddar Cheese, Lettuce, and Tomato on a Freshly Baked Bun. She really liked this and declared it her best burger of the holiday.



I surprised myself by going the chicken route. Im not sure why but Ive not been in much of a burger mindset this time around. I went for Cheddar-Bacon-Ranch Chicken Sandwich. Grilled Chicken Breast, Smoked Bacon, Sauted Onion, and Cheese on a Multigrain Bun. The server chose my side for me by saying Daddy wants onion rings. She was correct, Daddy did want onion rings. This was all really good and I was pleased with my choice. The onion rings were really good but I did find it a bit weird being called Daddy buy a lady considerably older than me.





Evie went for another Patty Melt. Blend of ground Angus Beef Brisket and Short Rib served with Swiss, Sauted Onions, and Garlic-Peppercorn Dressing on Rye Bread. She thought this to be the best one yet. I thought it looked the best one. I did have a taste and it was lovely.



So onto desserts! The kitchen sink was tempting but there was no way wed get anywhere close to finishing it.Lily Belle for some odd reason doesnt like ice cream so didnt want anything. Kelly said she didnt want anything either but we knew full well shed be hoovering up mine and Evies so getting 2 for nothing,

Evie went for a Classic Banana Split. A ripe Banana, Three-scoops of Ice Cream (Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry), Pineapple, Strawberry, and Marshmallow Topping finished off with Hot Fudge, Caramel, Toasted Almonds, Whipped Cream, and a Cherry. This was massive. She really enjoyed it and did a good job of it aided by the Hoover waiting in the wings



There was only one thing I was going for. D pre planned this bad boy. I went for the No Way Jos. A Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge delight featuring Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Morsels, Whipped Cream, and a Cherry. Again this was pretty massive but it was really good. Me and the Hoover finished it with no problem.



Kelly also noticed in the take out section of Beaches and Cream they sold the Mickey and Minnie Kitchen sinks. Kelly wanted one of each but empty. She wanted to use them in some kind of fashionable way at home to store things. An idea nicked from Pinterest no doubt. We enquired with our server and they could be bought for $9.99 each. We added one of each to our bill.


Disclaimer: not my photo. I forgot to take one. They are now packed away for when the house is done.

So overall we all really enjoyed Beaches and Cream. Pricey at $130 including tip(not including kitchen sinks) but definitely a place wed go to again. It will be hopefully a bit easier to get an adr soon now they are making it bigger
