Mardi Gras Munchies - Feb 2020 - Universal - Complete

Welcome to my first food report for 2020 and yes I know I said there definitely wouldnt be anymore till the summer! What can I say My names Rescuer and Im an Orlando addict.

Weve been to Orlando a few times 😂 and Ive written a food report for all my trips since 2013. All my reports can be found here.

Cast

Me (46) Chief planner and obsessive Disney and Universal fan. I think I drive ds and dh to distraction with my constant call for family holiday planning meetings, however, they never complain when we get there and the plan works.

According to DH I am a food snob according to Dh, he tells me I am very particular in where and what eat I eat yet Im not fussy really, eggs, soggy brussels sprouts and cherry flavoured things are the only foods I detest.

DH (48) Secret Disney and Universal fan. Loves it as much as me but cant be bothered with the planning.

He is the fussier one no tomatoes, no mushrooms, no beans, no olives

DS (12) My apprentice! He prefers to Universal plan but loves to make a list.

He eats everything and anything, loves to try new food!

Ds says he is going to give his opinion of the food in the report this time. So in typical pre teen fashion dont be expecting lots of words, Ill be impressed if i get more than a meh, ye, grunt etc...

Plan

We are staying at Aventura for a
week with a night at RPR just in case express passes are necessary. Universal will be our only parks.

As before, I plan for our trip report to be as live as I can manage. Not long to go.

Where we plan to eat.

We are humming and hawing over 51st and Green lounge in Dublin as we have a fair amount of time there.
Aer Lingus flights - no clue about the food offerings.

Mardi Gras Food Tents with the $60 lanyard for 15 snacks.
Amatista at Sapphire Falls
