Well we've got all our ADR's booked currently, but we have 2 for Ohana, one of which im planning on cancelling. So we might be able to squeeze Teppan Edo back in

We are currently planning on returning in 2020 with my parents, so all of the more adventurous ADRs are currently planned for then as it will be 3 against 1 haha!

Our list is currently: Tusker house breakfast, 50s Prime Time, Skipper Canteen, Ohana Dinner, Garden Grill Dinner & Breakfast, Kona Cafe, Trails end brunch, Cali Grill brunch, BOG breakfast, Sci-Fi & Yachtsman.

We do have a long list of snacks that we want to conquer too!

I also agree with you about Zellotape trying to fit Teppen Edo back in if they can, as it is very good. We actually have it booked for our last evening meal before home time.

Shame Wendys disappointed, we almost went there but ended up at Chick fil-A instead. Looking forward to more lol.
Thanks Im really enjoying writing it this year

I think half of the disappointment from Wendys was the dire terminal at JFK and the news about the delay but I would try again, not sure if its the fact your trapped at the airport so they dont have to try as hard with food quality

We think we might give Wendys another go if we can fit it in, looks like we got a dud one in the airport.

Glad to know people are enjoying

Day 1

Gastons Tavern

For our first breakfast we usually go to Crystal Palace and then struggle with food timings later in the day, we tend to get hungry about 3pm and then it throws us off for Rainforest Cafe in the evening. So we decided to mix things up and go for snack credits for breakfast at Gastons Tavern.

We used a quick service credit and got 2 cinnamon buns and a Coke Zero to share



Now Ive seen photos of these before and they look massive, trust me when I say they are even bigger in person. We love cinnamon buns but we were a bit disappointed in these. These had obviously been sat waiting somewhere and werent the freshest. The icing was nice but there was also a maple glaze over it which made it quite sweet. Glad we tried them but I cant imagine we will have them again, if we do we will share.

Total $14.14
Credits 1 QS

Main Street Bakery Starbucks

We grabbed a Starbucks from the Main Street Bakery, DF got a Venti Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino and I ordered a Trenti Peach Citrus Tea Infusion



We love the Vanilla Frappuccinos and my iced tea was nice but its not the best thing Ive had from Starbucks, it was really refreshing though. I was expecting a prominent peach flavour but it was quite subtle, a little disappointing if like me you like your peach.

Total $11.49
Credits 2 Snacks

Contempo Cafe

For Lunch we walked over to the Contemporary resort and headed up to the Contempo Cafe

We redeemed our mug credits and also grabbed a Contempo Smokehouse burger to share. Angus chuck burger, smoked bacon marmalade, fried onion ring and cheddar on a brioche bun with vegetable slaw. We ordered it without the cheese. As we had our mugs we swapped the drink for a smores brownie.





This burger was very good, the marmalade was great. We really enjoyed this and will probably come back to try it again. Its really nice for a break out of the magic kingdom and the food is better than in the park. The brownie was a little bit of a flop for us. The ganache topping was far too rich so we scrapped it off and the actual brownie underneath was just average.

Total $58.32
Credits 1 QS, 2 Mugs

Rainforest Cafe Animal Kingdom

Dinner tonight was Rainforest Cafe in Animal Kingdom, this has been our first night tradition for quite a while now. We met up with my brother and parents.

DF, Dad and I got the steak, shrimp and ribs trio with fries. I then give him my ribs and I took his shrimp. I had to go meet up with someone as food arrived and our waiter was great and took mine back to the kitchen to keep it warm. There was a slight issue when the food was brought out as three of us had ordered the same dish they didnt know which steak was the rare one and then announced they were all medium, DF was annoyed as he is a firm believer in steak needing to be cooked rare to be right. He was too hungry to send it back. The rest of the food was good but we found out towards the end that my dad ended up with the rare steak and they brought out a new medium one. Our server was great and it was just the staff brining out the food that seemed to have issues. DF got a bud to go with his meal instead of a soda.



Mum got the steak and DB got the burger, both enjoyed theirs.

For dessert on the DDP you can use two peoples desserts to order one volcano, we ordered two volcanos and DB got mango sorbet.



We probably ate just under one between the two, they are really good though. DB really rated the sorbet

Total for all 5 $221.39 - Im claiming $88.55 for ours
Credits 5 TS

QS: 2/28
