Hey guys. So we have just over two weeks left and as promised plans have changed. Chef Mickeys has been removed as has 50s prime time and cape May. We now have grand Floridian cafe breakfast, Ohana breakfast and Jiko added to the list.

We cancelled our night at HRH as we arent going to Universal this time so its just not worth the price tag for one night without using the perks.

We have instead booked a best western on I-drive for one night. Not sure what our food plans will be for I-drive but we are looking at going to Dave and Busters arcade at some point.

QS must do list is currently as follows:
Polite Pig
Blaze Pizza
Earl of sandwich
Caseys corner
Satuli Canteen
Flame Tree BBQ
Woodys Lunch Box
Katsura Grill
Sunshine Seasons

Snack Credit must dos are currently:
Eight spoons mac and cheese
Pretzels!
Num Num Cookie
Turtle Brownie
Many Starbucks drinks
Poutine

We arrive on the very last night of food and wine so we are debating going to this as Im not sure how much will be left on the last night. However, festival of the holidays starts half way through so we will definitely be using a few credits here.

I have no idea how we are going to use so many credits. It doesnt help dad is away for a few days so we have even more to use and neither me or dad eat big meals so QS will likely be split. Hoping that DH will pick up the slack for us 😂

Mobile Pre flight day

Evening all. Today went pretty smoothly for a pre flight day. We hardly slept last night, all feeling the nerves and excitement. We travelled in by train to Gatwick with zero hiccups.

Check in at Sofitel was easy although a triple room is actually a bed and a sofa bed and not two beds which it doesnt really make clear.
Once we unpacked, first stop was la terrasse for a drink to wind down. This is inside the Sofitel hotel.
Dad had two coors light


Andrew had a single malt old fashioned


I had a pink panther signature cocktail


All very nice but a bill of 40 was a bit painful.

We then went onto Parsons Pig at Crawley. FYI. Do not Uber here. Uber wanted 23 and local taxi was 11.

Parsons pig was absolutely incredible. We couldnt fault a single thing.
Starters were: Sheek Kebab


Texas chicken wings


And nawar paneer tikka


All excellent and Andrew said it was the best wings he had ever had in the UK. Loads of meat on them and so tender.

Mains were:
Lamb Shank


Salmon curry with rice


Ultimate burger (how huge is this thing)


We also had some poppadoms and pickles for the table.
Everything was tender and just fell apart. Again Andrew declares this the best burger ever and I have to admit the beef patty was so dense and yet moist and flavourful.

This place is just amazing. The total was 95 but we didnt regret a single penny. A nice tip was left as the service was also fantastic.


We then went back to the hotel, did twilight check in, Extra security for me tomorrow 😭, and are now having a couple more drinks before calling it a night.

Tomorrow: Virgin flight and, possibly, the last night of food and wine festival

A great pre travel day meal.

I always rotate my photos on my PC before I upload them to the report. For me it's a case of right clicking the photo and then a menu pops up where I can rotate clockwise or anti clockwise.

Thanks both. I uploaded on my phone last night but will probably be laptop once weve landed. Yes the drink were quite pricey and they add an automatic 12.5% service charge
