Chuys does look nice and definitely seems good value. Perfect end to the evening with your ice cream-if its mickey shaped it must be good!

Yes we were really impressed. Thanks for following along.

The ice creams look amazing at Coldstone Creamery - I have no idea why they would spoil someone's enjoyment of them by showing the calories I will also be keeping secrets from My Fitness Pal when I go later this year

Millers is always a good pick, the food there looks so good. I've never tried the zinger mountain melt, but I think I should really.

We love Bob Evans for breakfast and always say we should try a dinner there - omg, it looks fab - just lovely home cooked food, yummy.

I've heard a lot recently about how the offsite food prices have gone up a fair bit, but looking at your receipts it still seems excellent value to me so I'm really pleased about that.

Thanks for sharing, I'm really enjoying your report and it's making me look forward to all the yummy places we can visit soon
Yes weather wise we've certainly had more rain than normal. I could happily eat those ice creams again. I really need to try something else at Millers but the zinger mountain melt keeps pulling me back! Bob Evans we've only done dinner, but in a couple of days time we go for breakfast. Yum!

Are you doing a trip report this year?

Not sure how we've never come across before.

No trip report from me this year, we have no park tickets so will spend a lot of time relaxing around the pool. Not very newsworthy!

I might do a food report as we do plan on eating out A LOT

Mobile Day 10 - Dennys, Crazy Golf & Universal

Day 10 - Dennys, Crazy Golf & Universal

Today is short and sweet. Minus a mini rant, which isnt normally like me.

The only food photos are from breakfast so apologies in advance.

We relaxed and swam and then headed out for a late breakfast at Dennys.

Dennys has always been a firm family favourite.



The queue was out of the door when we arrived. We were told it was a 25 minute wait but decided to stick with it as there seemed to be a lot of coming and going. The manager didnt look like he wanted to be there.

45 minutes later we were still waiting but other parties of 2 and 4 were being seated almost immediately. We said that the 7 us could be split over 2 tables next to each other if that was easier. Nearly an hour from when we arrived we were finally taken to a table. And so were our friends but on the other side! We were next to 2 large empty but dirty tables that could seat 8. I nearly offered to clear and clean it myself. We left it as everyone was hangry as it was now lunchtime.

Pleased to sit down and have drinks









Our food was fine. But our food at Dennys in California last year was far superior.









We had a voucher



This was before the voucher was taken off



Our friends said their food had been ok but had found their server rude.

Hoping this was just a little blip as we havent experienced this at Dennys before.

We then played crazy golf at Pirates Cove at the crossroads (I won!). We used a voucher for a discount from one of the little booklets we picked up at the exit of Golden Coral.



It was hot hot hot! We drank lots of water and sat under the parasol at the end of the course and everyone had ice lollies. I had strawberry which was lovely and refreshing but ate/licked in record time (no photo - sorry) due to the speed it was melting! Cost approx $3/4

We then spent the evening at Universal.

We utilised the free parking after 6pm.



One of my finest pictures of everyone having fun!



We got a very late night Wendys drive through on route back to the villa which took a while. I think I fell asleep in the car, before finally rolling into bed.


Tomorrow - Bob Evans, Sweet Tomatoes & The Boardwalk.

Thanks for reading.
