They sell it at the pool bar ... at least they did at POR Iím assuming it will be the same at FQ ... I like to get a pretzel with plastic cheese dipping sauce to go with my drink and watch the world go by 😊😊

Can I ask - did they have the soft shell crab on the menu as a starter? Itís listed on MDE menu but they arenít always correct. Soft shell crab is in my ďdeath row final mealĒ selection...

Youíve just made my day 😊😊you should try it - itís delicious. Donít see it too often on menus - they had it on at California Grill 4 years ago and not seen it at Disney since.

So todayís plan had been to head over to Lyme Park for some walking/cycling and some fresh air. Best laid plans and all that ... itís non stop heavy rained all day in Manchester today so we ended up being stuck inside. Which gave me the chance to do some off site research.

Iím going to bore you all with lists now...

We have 5 nights on my $100 a day budget (we could go beyond this but Iíd prefer not to have to)

The only absolute really in Longhorns. And very possibly Cheesecake Factory.

the offsite long list

Iím breaking this down initially to just our evening meal. Iím signing up to all the reward programmes for free stuff if we do go off site for breakfast or lunch but I will detail that later.

Currently these are my thoughts:

Bahama Breeze - we can get a free appetiser apparently although Iíve filled the online form and not had any vouchers yet. I like the look of all the seafood and cocktails. Iíve never had coconut shrimp which seems to be a DIBB fave.

Fogo de Choa / Texas de Brazil - we like this style of food at home but maybe we should not go full meat when we had DxDDP coming up?

Vivo Italian Kitchen - mixed TA reviews but itís cheap and a lot of stuff on the menu we like. Pizza for Eva. Short walk back to the hotel. I am weighing this up against Carrabas but I cannot access the US site for prices and itís TA reviews are in a par with Vivo. Sone thoughts would be welcome.

Cowfish - jury is out as itís definitely not up Evaís street. Also quite pricey. It does get great reviews though.

Teak Neighbourhood Grill - we have both looked at the menu and reviews and this looks like a strong contender. Can anybody tell me more about their happy hour as there isnít much info available online. If burgers are to figure in the plan then these bad to boys look very good.

Panda Express is very likely on the first night as we will be tired and not likely to be up for a sit down dinner. We had it last year and it was good value and Eva really enjoyed the teriyaki chicken and noodles. It will also put aside around $80 for the rest of our offsite stay.

I have toyed with Kobe/Benihana but likely ruled out as we have an ADR at Teppan Edo.

Eva wants to go to Olive Garden. I did go there back in 2002 and it struck me as being on a par with Bella Italia. I know itís very popular and could be a cheap option.

Sorry about typos ... trying to do lots of paragraphs on my phone is a bit cumbersome to scroll ... must do better!

Flying Fish update!

So I made the ADR. I then showed Dr JJís filet steak photo to Eva and we are on! She has agreed that we can keep the reservation just as long as there isnít anything on my plate with a head or eyes. Progress indeed!
