That Perkins was our first meal after landing back in 2017, the server we had was a lovely lady and we said we'd go back for the cheesecakes but we never made it. I'm glad it's still going strong.
If it was a choice between the 2 I'd definitely go for Longhorns. You may enjoy Outback but if you love Longhorns I'd stick with it to be honest

Definitely one of our favourites. Have an amazing trip Abby, so excited for you all xx

Hi thanks for reading. I must admit most of the food was lovely and definitely didn't put us off staying offsite again. Yeah plane food is very meh isn't it

Olive Garden was lovely, I think next time I'd happily just munch away on the salad and breadsticks

Thank you. I know I wish I could find another and I'd be there in a shot I keep checking but haven't been lucky at all. Fingers crossed for you and thanks for reading xx

Day 9 - Millers Ale House and Plane Food

So today was the final day

Breakfast consisted of eating whatever snacks were still in the room, kids ate a nutritious breakfast of cereal, cheetos and rice crispie squares I had my garlic burger from SnS which had been in the fridge. I warmed it up in the microwave but it just wasn't the same

After dropping the cases off and quick last minute bit of shopping we headed for lunch.


Millers Ale House

We arrived at 11.54am to the Millers near Disney Springs ... sorry I can't remember the name of it We were seated promptly and taken to a booth. So at Millers kid's eat free on a Tuesday, you don't need to print a voucher off for this. We also had a join up offer for a free portion of zingers I think (honestly can't remember but we definitely had a voucher) I asked if it was ok to use this with the kid's eat free and I was told that was fine.

We ordered the zingers with garlic, I ordered my first alcoholic drink since the awful wine at Discovery Cove and got a Cherry Limeade cocktail. This was just $4.95. It was quite nice but VERY strong everyone else had soft drinks.





The zingers arrived quite quickly although we didn't manage to get a photo. These were $10.79.

Chris and I bother went for:


Philly Cheese - Grilled, sliced beef, sauted onions, American cheese, hoagie roll - $10.29



Chris enjoyed his. Mine was the same but I just didn't enjoy it at all. I'm not sure what I expected but I just didn't enjoy it. I found the fries to salty and the philly cheese rather dry. I'm not sure if the blues were kicking in and this has clouded my judgement?

Caitlin had:


Pepperoni Flatbread - Mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, marinara sauce. - $7.99



She really enjoyed this and shared some of it with Thomas as he wasn't keen on his meal.

Thomas had:


Grilled Chicken Breast - All Kids Meals (except Spaghetti and Meatballs) include a kids beverage (Soda, Tea or Lemonade) and a special Blue Bunny dessert! - $5.49

We're not sure why Thomas opted for the grilled chicken breast but he didn't enjoy it at all so he ended up sharing pizza with Caitlin.



Noah had:


Hot Dog - $5.49



As usual Noah didn't like this, Chris and I tried it and there was nothing wrong with it, he just didn't like it he managed to eat a few fries.

This was such a let down for us all, we really didn't seem to enjoy it. I'd be willing to give it another try again as I think the last day may have played a part in our opinions somehow.

We went to pay the bill and they hadn't taken the kids meals or the zingers off. We mentioned to our server and she came back and took the zingers off but left the kids meals on. I explained about the kids eat free and she went off again. This time she came back with a manager who explained you can't do the free zingers and kid's meals. I told him the server informed us that we could, but she denied saying that! I was too tired and annoyed to argue with them so we paid up and left. Had we known we couldn't use both together we wouldn't have ordered the zingers. We only ordered them as they were free

The total we paid was
$61 including tip.

We had intended on staying at Millers for dessert as we still had about an hour to kill, but the food and the trouble with the bill we decided to skip it and head to SnS for milkshakes instead.


Steak N Shake

It wasn't too busy in here today. Our server was great too, very chatty and friendly, a much better experience than the last 2 we've had here Noah opted for:

Side By Side - Vanocolate - $3.49



Caitlin had:

Specialty Shake - Birthday Cake - $3.69



Thomas:

Specialty Shake - Nutella - $3.69



I had:

Specialty Shake - Nutella Shake with added M&M's - $4.19



Chris had:

Specialty Shake - Very Berry Strawberry - $3.69



We all really enjoyed these apart from Chris. Not sure why he didn't enjoy it but he said he wouldn't get it again. The kids were way too big for them, I think Noah only had 2 or 3 mouthfuls

This came to around $19. We had $30 cash left and needed some for tolls so we left
$25 including the tip and kept the rest for the tolls back to the airport.

Plane Food

This was the menu for the return journey. Again not to my liking at all so I was struggling with what to choose. We had our pretzels and first drink. I gave my pretzels to Noah. I just had a soft drink on the return.



The kids menu was the same as the outbound menu with cheesey pasta.



Chris was really looking forward to getting the BBQ pork but they had ran out so he had to get the curry.



He said it was ok, but Chris will eat most foods and not complain

When they came to me they explained they had ran out of economy food and would I be ok with a meal from premium. I obviously didn't have much choice I actually really enjoyed this, Chris was very jealous he kept leaning over and eyeing it up





I ate half and gave the rest to Chris to keep him quiet honestly it's like having a 4th child at times

Just before landing they came round with the pastry, yoghurt and cereal bar. The kids ate none of theres, I ate the pastry and Chris ate the cereal bar. I also had a cup of tea.



This concludes the report really but I will do a full run down of the budget trip in the next post


Total Spends

Day 1 - $178.49 - $28.49 over budget
Day 2 - $42.13 - $107.87 under budget. Add in yesterdays over budget gives us $79.38 extra on our $150 a budget

Day 4 - $146.73 - $3.27 under budget. $77.23 in credit

Day 6 - $104.16 - $45.84 under budget. $133.46 in credit ($104.46 if you count the TravelZoo voucher
Day 7 - $80.51 - $67.49 under budget. $200.95 in credit (not including Travel Zoo Voucher)

Awh such a shame you didn't like Millers too much. We had a really lovely meal there--in fact my DH liked it so much, he's made it a "must-do" when we go back in October

At least the shakes seem to have made up for the poor lunch food.

I've really enjoyed your trippie and thanks for tallying up the costs--its always really interesting to see how much it all adds up.

its been a great report. Thanks for sharing 😀 I think your last day is always a bit sad, sorry Millers didn't live up to expectations, we have always enjoyed it. Steak n Shake is somewhere we have never been but it always looks good, perhaps we should give it a go.
Looking forward to the budget post.
