A Sparks ĎLIVEí Universal Christmas Adventure- December 2021

This is a food report with a twist as Iím not actually travelling this time, it will be my husband Adam and my son Cooper. I know we all love a Dining Report so I thought I would report on their behalf.



This was only booked a few weeks ago and has changed several times. You can find the ore-trip report here:

https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/sho... php?t=1206520

Today they popped to Manchester Airport for their pre-departure tests, they used Randox and their negative results were back within 30 mins which was fantastic. They had a quick lunch of KFC (hot and fresh was the feedback) at Terminal 1 before making their way to The Clayton Hotel.






With the boys moving their flights to two days earlier (due to the upcoming changes) they will be staying at The Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista for 2 nights. They have reservations at Cityworks (first time visiting) and also House of Blues (an old favourite) at Disney Springs. Then moving on to The Rosen Plaza for a night where Millerís Ale House is a must visit before moving to The Hard Rock Hotel for 3 nights. Finishing up back at the Rosen Plaza for another 3 nights. There was no availability for the Universal Hotels due to the late booking so I-drive was the next best choice.

You can expect trips to Cracker Barrell, Dennys, Longhorns, Culvers, Chick fil a, Cold Stone Creamery and a few more. This is a Universal and Seaworld trip, whereby we were allowed to extend our Annual Passes from 2020. So it is basically a mini trip to use up Ďabout to be expiredí travel vouchers. We are looking forward to a whole family visit in August 2022 with both Disney and Universal parks on our itinerary.

Thank you Claire 💝 Yes, Iím hoping for loads of food pics too, I am totally living vicariously through their trip. Milo is currently snoring on the sofa beside me, so at least that hasnít changed. 😂 My shopping list is huge and poor Debbie might need a spa day after delivering it to Adam. 😅 Thank you for your kind wishes 💖 xxx

The Aviator Bar at the Clayton Hotel.



Beer for Adam and Water for Cooper.

Chicken tikka pizza for Cooper

Clayton Burger for Adam. Total cost was £36 and they said the food was ok, I think they are just looking forward to all the delicious food they are about to have on holiday! They are now back in the room watching football before any earlyish night.

Oh wow, you've started already! The burger looks good, well I guess it looks pretty average really but I'm adding points on for the fact that it's a pre travel day burger and everyone knows that pre travel day dinner gets bonus points 😉.

It was a quicker start to the trip than planned Abby. I think the burger was pretty ordinary but you are so right, anything on a pre-travel day is still great because you are hopefully going on holidays! 😉 I have everything crossed that it gets better from here. 🥳
