One of my fruit tarts from 2017. Hopefully they're still available and look just as good!

I thought the pineapple cake would be nice ☹️ If you want refills for the popcorn the stand outside peck bills sometimes has the maple one .

Yep, mine too! I really hope it's still there in October🤞
We've done ddp twice and QSDP 3 times, 4th this year, and find it so much easier. Definitely don't miss deciding on adrs and having to be at set places at set times each day.

Love the ice cream options from the Plaza. They're very filling though. Are you planning on trying Sleepy Hollow at all? I love the fruit and Nutella waffle there. It's not a snack credit, bit you can use a QS credit and get a drink with it. Not the best value, but when you've got so many to use, you don't really need to worry about that do you? Plus, it's yummy!

Shame that the kids didn't like the pizza at CBR. Do you think you'll get over to Spyglasses Grille at all?

Hope you have a good day at HS and manage to get the fruit tart
Thank you
We will definitely be going to sleepy hollow I have been wanting to try the nutella waffle since reading your report.

I do not regret sticking with the QSDP I am really loving the flexibility of the QSDP although I feel like I have been spoilt now staying onsite is really making this holiday so much easier than the offsite trip.

We haven't explored the resort much yet so will hopefully be nipping into spyglass grill at some point.

I tried to get the fruit tart. I totally forgot on the way in and left at around 7.30 so I am hoping it was just too late rather than the fact that they don't do it anymore I will be checking again

The cake was ok but a bit drier than I anticipated. I am not really a fan of soft serve so maybe that is part of the reason I wasn't blown over by it. I have seen great reviews about it online som was possibly expecting more than I should have lol.
Thanks for the tip for the maple popcorn (it is the only reason we buy the bucket.

Also just wanted to add that in the Starbucks there were some packaged fruit pieces. I think there were apples in one box and pineapples in another so I presume that they will have that at all of the starbucks.

The fruit at the BOG breakfast contains mostly melon with a few grapes but is very refreshing and delicious. Will keep an eye out for any healthy options for you

BOG was great on the first morning. It was really special to go there and have such a wonderful breakfast .

We started off with having cereals in the room and a lazy morning (we had later fast passes today due to getting the earliest Slinky Dog when we booked FP's and it was at 6.40.
We then decided to head to Disney springs for lunch before heading to HS.
Just a tip here I wouldn't recommend DS for lunch (if heading to a park) as we had to catch a bus to a resort to get to HS. Fortunately, we weren't in any rush.

We went to Candy cauldron to get some treats for after lunch we bought the following to share :
Cotton candy

Rice crispy treat



Mickey cookie.


3 snack credits

We got outside and ended up munching through them pre-lunch.


We were all stuffed after the sweet treats but needed some food that wasn't sugary lol.
We decided to go to blaze The kids chose Pepperoni and DH chose meatball. (He had a beer with his)
I shared with DH.
Blaze is really amazing and delicious we all really enjoyed it. I hope that I am hungry next time as I want a pizza that has some more interesting flavour. I can really see why people rate this so highly.


2QS credits

I had to try the new num num cookie from Neighbourhood bakery in HS.

This was warm and amazing so amazing that DH got another just before we left the park

2 snack credits.

Later we tried Woddy's lunch box. I have been wanting to try the grilled cheese sandwich. We got 3, 2 with tater tots and 1 with tomato and Basil soup.
We got 2 cherry vodka lemonade drinks and the kids specialty drink.
The adult drink was delicious. The children's drink tasted like sherbert (the kids weren't too keen
Apart from G who said that it was too cheesy we all really enjoyed the grilled cheese and the soup to dip it in was delicious
.

3 QS credits

After we ordered 2 pop tarts with nutella. These were disappointing they were not warm and didn't taste that great imo. Only 1 of us ironically G enjoyed the pop tart but at least she had something other than tater tots to eat lol


2 snack credits

We returned to CBR and ordered a chicken cuban which I enjoyed but everyone else wasn't keen on.
I asked for adult chicken nugget meal which they did and with this ordered 2 tropical coladas. We got htis to take out.

2 QS credits

I drunk mine (love this drink) DH left most of his but I just couldn't finish it.
We have both drink more in the last 2 days than we have in the last 2 years but I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying the drinks on offer (maybe a bit too much lol).

I am desperately waiting for AK it is my favourite park with really lovely looking food but I still have a couple of days to wait (groan)

Tomorrow is Typhoon lagoon and Epcot.

7 snack credits used today 200 remaining
7 QS credits used today 195 remaining
