Great report! Really enjoying reading along!

It was all really good, and awesome value. I couldnít believe we could combine with kids eat free too. A family of 4 could have a meal for about $26!

Olive Garden is great, we really love going there. Some of the onsite costs are eye watering. That was a particularly expensive pastry, the ones we had from Beach Club for breakfasts were around $4 I think. Will you eat just onsite, or go to supermarkets or offsite too for some things?

Thank you. I think some onsite things are better value than others!

Great food report, the Portofino club breakfast looks lovely, gutted we didnít get to the Polite Pig as those platters look lush. I agree about the snack credits we started out carefully and by day 3 was buying anything on a snack credit whatever itís cost 🤣

I like the look of Chillis, itís never really appealed, but looking at your food and value, I would definitely visit next time.

Mobile Day 15 - Dennyís and Longhorns - Wednesday 28th August

We werenít in a park today so had a more relaxed morning and went for breakfast at Dennyís. It was quite busy and we had to wait for a table.

David had the grand slam slugger - pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon and potato with coffee and juice included. I had the every day value slam - pancakes, sausage and egg.



Alex had a Belgian waffle slam, and both the younger two a kids build your own slam with pancakes, sausage and scrambled egg (and Alex finished it all!)



In total it was just over $33 plus tip (using a 20% off voucher I had by email). It was nice, but not anywhere near as good as Kekeís


After a trip to Amazing Animals, we went to Longhorns. It was our first visit here. There was bread to start and a Caesar salad for the adults



David had the 12oz rip-eye, I had the 8oz sirloin and all the boys had burgers




The food was all fine, but nothing really wowed is, I think I had high expectations. It doesnít help that Americans donít seem to do sauce with steak, and unlike millerís this didnít come with garlic butter or anything, so maybe seemed a little dry.

A more expensive meal at $75 (though David did have a beer)

I'm a little bit torn about what we'll do.

We are doing a split stay with 8 nights a POFQ which I think I'll buy Dining Plan for but we're doing 6 nights at the Boardwalk afterwards that will have to be OOP. It should be the perfect opportunity for us to try lots of offsite places but it's our first time staying for an extended period in a resort that we can walk to a park from so I really want to make the most of being so close to Epcot. I think I need to do a lot of research into what's the best option.

I had read so many times here to not hold back with the snack credits, but with only 5 days I really thought weíd use them easily! I have learnt!

We have always enjoyed Chilis, they also have a 2 for $25 offer which gives you the chips appetiser, two mains and a dessert i think if iím remembering right

Thatís definitely tough, you donít want to waste lots of time going back and forth whilst at the Boardwalk when as you say you want to make the most of the location

It was fantastic, well worth doing. Having a private tour and hearing about all the animals was incredible, plus the chance to get up close to some of them

The Dennys breakfast looked good, shame the dinner at Longhorns didn't wow you.

I think sometimes expectations donít help, it was somewhere iíd read about so much on here that I expected it to be amazing

I wouldnít have thought I would, but he was very chilled out and cute! Someone had originally had him as a pet when we was a baby (there are some crazy people out there as most of the animals had been originally kept as pets!)

I saw my first wild alligator this year, in the road right outside Windsor Hills, and I wouldnít have gone near that one!
