What a bargain those ice creams were compared to Disney prices!

Theres nothing worse than a rubbish meal on your last night! We weren't fans of Mannys. Twistee Treats however looks amazing! There's one up in Posner Park near our villa this year and we are 100% going there... the ice creams look amazing!

They certainly did

Especially if you compare it to somewhere like Coldstone Creamery

Definitely. I was surprised how cheap it was

Itís a bit further down the 192 going away from Disney. Itís a little further down from Culvers.

KUSAFARI BAKERY ANIMAL KINGDOM

:SORRY I KNOW IíM TAKING A WHILE TO FINISH THIS BUT WE ARE STILL HOMELESS DUE TO BUILDING ISSUES AND STILL AT THE IN LAWS. SHOULD BE ALL DONE BY FRIDAY, HOPEFULLY

This was one morning we didnít have time for breakfast. Weíd done Virgin check in at Disney Springs first thing and then had to be at Animal Kingdom to use our Flights Of Passage fastpass. Once we done this we were heading towards Africa so we decided to get a late breakfast snack.

Kusafari Bakery is somewhere weíve been before. Itís on the same side as Tusker House but a bit further down towards the Safari. They have a nice selection of pastries. Although weíve been before I did embarrass myself by trying to get served at the collection window oblivious to the till and queue behind me



Kelly and Lily went for a chocolate twist each. They said they were good but Lily ended up with more on her face than she ate!



Evie went for a Colossal Cinnamon Roll. This was huge and too big for her but she really enjoyed it. I did help her out a little as well



I went for an Elephant Ear pastry. Iíve had one before and there pretty good. Pastry with the top covered in chocolate.



All pretty happy with our choices. Again missing those snack credits so it was $27.11 with a bottle of Diet Coke for me.

More great updates.

Such a shame that your meal at Manny's wasn't good, not what you want to end the holiday on.

Beaches and Cream looks really good, it's closed when we're there this year, typical when it's the one year we were going to go.

Hope your house is sorted soon.

RAINFOREST CAFE ANIMAL KINGDOM

So after a morning at Animal Kingdom it was time for our final sit down meal at the Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kingdom. Rainforest Cafe isnít for everyone but for us itís a tradition going back to when me and Kelly first went on our honeymoon in 2006. Weíve never had a bad meal at the Disney Springs or Animal Kingdom location.



Again I was using the Landryís Card. I have acquired 3 over the years so I would be using my ďbirthdayĒ reward from my third card. No need to book. I showed them Landryís Card and we were called to a table within a couple of minutes.

As it was a fairly early lunch it wasnít too busy but it quickly filled up. We always enjoy the theming here.





Our server was quick to appear and take drink orders while she gave us some menus to have a look through. We had a good look and resisted the urge to get unneeded appetisers.



The girls were both going from the kids menu for this meal. It was never any issue for Evie as she clearly is older than the stated 10 years of age. As the holiday went on she found kids menu far more manageable for her. She was happy to swallow her early holiday pride and eat from the kids menu.

She went for kids cheeseburgers. This was 2 sliders which she had with fries and orange slices. She really enjoyed this and was happy with her choice.



Lily went for kids hot dogs. It was two dogs and she chose apple and orange slices as her sides. Likewise she was happy with her choice.



Kelly went the chicken quesadillas from the appetiser menu as a main with a side of fries. Again she happy with her choice.



In theme with the rest of the holiday went for something I wouldnít normally go for. I had a the Blue Mountain Chicken Sandwich. Lemon grille chicken, bacon, Swiss cheese, red peppers and Safari sauce. I really enjoyed this and was happy I went for it. I was tempted by the Beastly Burger but thought that might be a bit heavy on the stomach on the plane later





We didnít really need dessert so we decided that was it. The manager had come round earlier thanking us for being Landry members and confirming we had $25 off the cheque for my birthdayreward. So with that off and tip it was a brilliant $50 total. The Rainforest Cafe never lets us down!
