I know it was awful! We didnít get a decent meal all day which is why we were determined to have the breakfast buffet!

How exciting you've started. I hope you enjoyed your trip. The first day sounds fun. Your buffet breakfast looked tasty, shame it was more expensive than you thought it would be. Dinner at Seaworld looked great.

We did enjoy it, thanks. Although it was tiring!

Day 2 - Kusafiri, Yak & Yeti, Daily Poutine

We started today with breakfast on the balcony of a banana nut muffin we got from Walmart the day before and a coffee from the room coffee maker. We had gotten these muffins last year during Irma and they were really good. We should have got 2 boxes really.



We started the day at Animal Kingdom and after the safari we decided second breakfast was in order (we did that a lot to the point where second breakfast was just a given ). We were passing Kusafiri Bakery at this point and considered the Elephant Ear Pastry after missing out last year however I was reminded of the Colossal Cinnamon Bun when I saw someone pass with it and we changed our mind. We got this between us with 2 coffees.




Sorry for the poor photo. This was really nice and more than enough for two. The coffee on the other hand was vile and we ended up throwing it out. This cost us $13.39 and would have been 3 snacks on DDP. That's pretty good value considering the size of the cinnamon bun.

We were hungry about 12ish after another early start and decided on Yak & Yeti with one of our Landry Select birthday rewards (we had one each). Since we were Landry Select members we didn't need a reservation and were seated quickly.
Photos of the specials menu only as I've taken many pictures of the main menu over the years!




I got a Shanghai Lemonade Passion Fruit flavour to drink and Marie just got a Sprite.



We discovered the Wok Fried Green Beans last year so absolutely had to have them!


These were as good as we remembered and we ate them all!

For mains I fancied fish and considered the cod from the specials menu but decided on the Miso Glazed Salmon. This was really tasty.



Marie just fancied a burger so got the Kobe Beef Burger.




She declared this the best burger she'd ever had! I had a taste and it was a pretty good burger. When the manager came round to ask how we were (they do that if you're a Landry Select member) she informed him of this!

We didn't order dessert as we were too full. The meal came to $43.92 with the $25 reward taken off. We left the full 20% tip as our server was fantastic. This could have been 2 TS credits but we'd have had to pay for the starter.

We were in Disney Springs late afternoon and arrived really thirsty. I suggested going to the Coke place for the international flight. When we got there we were so hot and thirsty we ordered the Combo. For anyone who hasn't tried this it's all the international drinks plus a tray of floats. It amounts to 24 small cups, 8 of which are floats.





Even between two very thirsty people this was a ridiculous amount of fluid! We didn't finish the ones we didn't like which was about 8 and didn't finish all the floats. We left bloated and full! I don't know what we were thinking and it cost us $17.04.

While in DS we decided that dinner was to be something light and Marie was desperate to go back to The Daily Poutine for the Classic. This time we were to get one each instead of sharing like we did last year. We did share a lemonade though.






This cost us $22.66 and we enjoyed it again. It may have been a QS credit each on DDP.

Dessert was the Cookies and Cream Pie that we buy every year even when on DDP as we love it so much. We bought this in Walmart the day before. The only picture I have is this one of a mess in a bowl so I'll include an internet pic.




I can't remember how much this was and can't find the receipt.

Total spends (not including anything bought at Walmart) was $97.01. If on DDP we would have used 3 snacks, 2 TS and 2 QS (I think) credits plus paid OOP for the coke and starter at Y&Y.
