NOW LIVE! Beauty and the Feast - September/October 2019

Following a post-trip food report last year, Ive decided to go all out and do a live report this year!

We fly direct to MCO on 26th September, staying at Gatwick the night before. Its just the two of us going again (me (Beauty ) and my boyfriend, W (the Feast )). This is our third trip together (my fifth trip ever, and Ws fourth).

First we are staying at Coronado Springs for a week on the DDP, which weve not done before. We booked free QSDP but upgraded to DDP as we want to do Cali Grill brunch which is almost equal to the upgrade cost in one meal! We have a $100 gift card and will waive mousekeeping for another $60; we aim to use them for tips, and possibly some cheeseburger egg rolls and cocktails Then for the remaining nine nights we are in a poolside room at Cabana Bay. We stayed there for two weeks last year and loved it (particularly the Volcano Bay entrance), so it only felt right to return. During this part of the trip we will be focusing on the Universal and Seaworld parks, but we may head back to Disney for a day or two. Were also doing HHN.

The food plans are:

Week 1 - DDP

TS credits
  • Flying Fish
  • California Grill Brunch
  • Narcoossees
  • Chef Art Smiths Homecomin

Potential QS
  • Be Our Guest lunch (we also have breakfast booked, but are considering cancelling)
  • Geyser Point
  • Caseys Corner... including the famous plastic cheese dip


  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Friars Nook
  • Dluxe Burger
  • Blaze Pizza
  • Flame Tree BBQ
  • Chicken Guy
  • Polite Pig

Potential (definite) snack credit uses
  • FOOD AND WINE
  • Aristocrepes
  • Flame Tree BBQ fries... yum


  • Mac n cheese from Eight Spoon Cafe
  • Mickey crispy treats...


  • Cookies n cream funnel cake
  • Night Blossom... instagram in a cup



Final 9 days

Potential meals
  • Hard Rock Cafe
  • Cowfish
  • NBC Grill... mmm black n blue kettle chips


  • Bubba Gump Shrimp
  • Panda Express
  • Moes... can you tell we like cheese sauce yet?


  • Cheesecake Factory
  • Dennys
  • Red Lobster
  • Margaritaville... how many can these feed?!


  • Giordanos
  • Longhorns
  • Sharks Underwater Grill

Potential snacks
  • Dippin dots
  • Voodoo doughnuts
  • Cauldron Cake... the icing on this is unbelievable


  • Coldstone creamery
  • Simpsons Big Pink
  • Toothsome (treats/milkshakes only... see April/May 2018 food report!)

We are super excited. Food is a massive part of all of our holidays and I cant wait to share all of our eats with you soon!

Wow, gave me a surprise to see this near the top of the list. I did a report called Beauty and the Feast a couple of years ago and thought someone had suddenly resurrected it lol. Great minds think alike, look forward to reading yours

Thank you! Looks like we will be there at the same time.

I just somehow deleted the t-shirt pic so here it is again for reference!
