Iím not a huge fan of the Gastonís cinnamon rolls, I think theyíre too dry in the middle. I know you can ask for extra icing, but I feel like you shouldnít have to, if that makes sense.

Iím another one drooling over that Contempo Cafť burger.

Weíve only done Teppan Edo once, because the communal seating isnít for me, but it is fabulous. I agree about the dessert being unexpectedly nice, I had the green tea mousse cake at Tokyo Dining and I was pleasantly surprised.

Iím not sure extra icing would have fixed it, it was bordering on too sweet as it was and some of the edges started to the get the sat around too long hardness

That burger was amazing, not sure if Iíve sung its praises enough, it made a nice change to have the bacon marmalade rather than bacon

Iím not a big fan of communal seating but found this ok, one family wanted to be left alone so people did and I chatted a little with the other, it was worth it for the food I felt, i donít get how the cake was so light even with it being a mousse

Glad Iím not on my own with it, Iíve never tried the cheese ones, what do they actually taste like? I know maybe a stupid question, Iím just nervous trying new things

Day 4

Hollywood Scoops

After a very nutritious breakfast of Captain Crunch in the room around 1ish we started getting peckish and in typical fashion started hunting down something sweet. Iíd read a bit about Hollywood Scoops before and people seemed to say it was inline with the Plaza just without the castle views. As we were getting off RockíníRollercoaster we thought weíd give it ago.

We both ordered the brownie sundae - brownie, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a cherry. We both asked for no cherry and I asked for no whipped cream.



I really enjoyed this, the brownie was massive and the ice cream is same as the Plaza. DF thought the brownie was too big and average. It wasnít the best brownie, it had more of a cake texture but you canít go too wrong with chocolate cake/brownie and ice cream. Iíd get it again, DF would try something different.

Credits 2 Snacks
Total $14.25


Backlot Express

We stopped off at backlot express for some air con and a sit down. We also gave mobile ordering a go. We ordered a fountain drink and fries to share. Mobile ordering is great, just put in what you want and it lets you know the credits required for the dining plan. Fries were nice and hot and the drinks here are refillable so thatís always great.



Credits 2 Snacks
Total $7.18

Homecomin

Tonight we headed off to Disney Springs for a new to us reservation. From the moment heíd seen the menu DF has been dreaming of Fried Chicken and doughnuts. We checked in 15 minutes early for our reservation and ended up waiting 45, not sure what happened as it didnít seem too busy.

I have a thing about chicken on the bone, I donít like eating it at home its far too fiddly and I never eat it in public. Yes I am very aware of how I sound. I asked our waitress about subbing out the chicken, replacing the chicken that comes with doughnuts for the chicken pieces from the burger, she came back with loads of options for what I could do. Then just to be super awkward I subbed out the mashed potato for fries, because there just wasnít enough fried food on the plate already. DF managed to remain calm during the process of me deciding what I wanted to eat/ordering despite it delaying his eating another 10 minutes.



This was amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed it and it was our surprise of the holiday. We thought we would enjoy but not as much as we did. Considering I had boneless chicken, this was really juicy and when DF tried it to compare to his he said there wasnít much difference. The doughnuts were slightly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, there is no reason to eat doughnuts with chicken, but after eating these I wonít question it again. The fries were really good as well but it was a massive portion so I didnít finish them. DF finished his meal well before me so picked at them whilst waiting for me.



DF declared it the best meal of the trip so far and remarked ďthe best fried chicken he has ever had and didnít know it could be so good. Anything else calling itself fried chicken is an insultĒ So I think he liked it.

Weíd been lucky enough to get a table facing the kitchen, well I was facing the kitchen. Iíd been seeing the desserts coming out and as we sat and had a breather I thought I might be able to eat a nibble or two and as it was included on the plan it would be rude not to.

I ordered the Key Lime Pie and DF went for the Chocolate Cake.



The Key Lime Pie was delicious, my slight nibble turned into half of the slice. It was the best key lime pie Iíve had and I know Iíll be saving room for it when we go back next year.



DF liked the chocolate cake, ďit was good, nothing more, nothing lessĒ.

This was a great meal and we thoroughly recommend it, great food, great service. What more could you want?

Honestly she couldnít have been better, she took the time to go through it and checked I was happy when it arrived and half way through eating, great service in my book

I highly recommend it but putting that aside Iíve learnt that if you sort of fancy it go for it, yes having a bad meal isnít great but chances are if your seeing half and half it isnít going to be drastic just personal taste. Whenever weíve gone somewhere weíve been flip flopping about weíve loved it and just annoyed ourselves as we could have had more great meals
