That's a snack credit! - November 2019 DDP- Day nine and ten added

Hi all. Three years have finally passed and we are so close to our next Orlando adventure. This was booked last April and we have watched countless Vlogs and read countless trippies. Every food one has come with the line thats a snack credit as I try to train my husband and Dad on how much food they actually need to eat.

This is our first time on the dining plan and I promise to try and finish this one unlike "hungry hungry Hearnes" which tripped out on the 12th day. Its going to be another live report as what else is better than writing about food after youve eaten it and you guys have helped so much with our planning.

We dont know when we will be going back this time as life events have changed our path. So we have done the age old thing of trying to cram as much as we can into a small timeframe and then go straight back to work after

Introductions are in order of course.

Me: 31 year old obsessive planner and researcher extraordinaire. Tried to lose weight again for this holiday but am trying to just love myself for me instead so on a path of self discovery lately. Favourite character- Stitch. Snack dreams- the humble cheese pretzel.

DH: 31 year old never quite grew up gamer. Keen pokemon player so pokemon Go in Orlando is on the books. Will hopefully be the one to power through food when we cant take anymore. Favourite Character- Baymax. Snack dreams- Num Num Cookie (also wild wings but not a snack)

DF: 55 year old lorry driver and lager connoisseur. Wants everything to spontantious and still doesnt quite get how that doesn't really work for disney. Favourite character- Baloo. Snack dreams- Pulled pork mac and cheese.

There will be a visit from my Uncle and Cousin as they live close to Orlando and its my Cousins 21st Birthday.

Venues:
We start with an overnight at the Sofitel at Gatwick North.
We then move onto 14 nights booked at AKL.
And for our swan song, we have one night on the I-drive. This was originally hard rock but we arent going to universal now so it seemed pointless.

Flights are Virgin economy bubble on the way and Premium on the way back in a desperate attempt to get some sleep on the plane.

Reservations so far are as follows (and always subject to change, cancellation and FOMO sydrome).

Sanaa
Be Our Guest Breakfast (just me whilst the guys are at KSC)
Teppan Edo
Yachtsman Steakhouse
Raglan Road
Homecomin Brunch and dinner
Grand Floridian cafe breakfast
Ohana breakfast
Jiko Dinner
Morimoto Lunch
Boma Breakfast
Cali Grill Dinner

I'll do some more updates on other dining and adventure plans soon.
Thanks for reading this far

Edited at 10:43 PM. Reason: Changing of plans

Looking forward to following this on our return from Florida! Will hopefully banish the inevitable disney blues, and help me plan for our 14 nights at AKL next year!

We will be back home from our holiday when you are doing this, so itll be nice to have a little reminisce and hear about your trip. 👍🏻
