Shame about yak and yeti server you should get a feedback survey and visit from manager with Landry's card.

Some more great updates. We did Yak n Yeti for the first time last year. Will definitely return and we pay as not on dining plans.


Re starbucks non coffee iced frappes... if you find them a bit too much ice, you can ask for less ice and they just put more milk in and it makes it a little more milkshaky! I always find half way through I've sucked all the milk and my cup is full of icy slush!

Quick question? We got a landrys card last year which had $50 on which we used in Yak and Yeti. My question is when we go again next year will there be any money on it? i.e. $25 or $50 because it's our birthday month when we are go again?

Really enjoying your food report loves2plan!

Yes your birthday $25 is added each year - it's valid from 1st day of birthday month and is valid for 6 weeks. We used dh's for rainforest cafe - think it was 3rd year of getting the bonus.

I really like the QS omelettes, we have had so many of the Create-Your-Own ones at Pop/POR I couldn't even start to count!

Great that Blaze and D-Luxe Burger are next to each other, I want to try both and I am not the best at navigating Disney Springs so happy that should be easy enough.

Enjoy Ant & Dec tomorrow! I'll be looking out for you all.

Love the veggies on that pizza from Blaze! Yum!

Sorry you didn't get "Happy" as your waiter at Yak and Yeti. Glad the food was good even if the service was surly.

I've never seen Ant and/or Dec - but I gather they are a big deal - hope your kids love the show!

We are staying at cbr and I know the food court may not be finished by then... we love our breakfast.. haven't figured what to do yet.
There's definitely plenty of food on the qsdp. We've had the ddp twice and this is our third time on the qsdp. We do enjoy table service meals, but I never got the timings right when booking as we were either no hungry or ravenous Having the flexibility of the Landry's card has been good. Andy and I both got one, so they've worked out well for us

I'm sure you'll enjoy both Blaze and D-Luxe Burger. There's a new place opening in a few days called The Polite Pig. Sounds like a BBQ/smokehouse type place so no good for us due to Izzy's aversion to all things smoked, but another one to add to the list

We didn't think much of CBR food either I have to say, but as you said you don't have to eat there. There was some curry that was nice as far as I remember. Cocktails at pool bar are terrible in my opinion - avoid!
Yes, the food court has been disappointing. We do like somewhere with a decent food court for those days when you just want to relax and not have to go elsewhere to eat. Unless it drastically improved with the refurbishment, it'll be POR/POFQ for us unless the price difference is too big to justify. We're not ones for cocktails really, so haven't tried the pool bar, but doesn't sound like we're missing out.

This is my fifth time on a dining plan, so I'm a bit of an old hand at it now I do like to keep up to date with dinjng plan and menu changes, and the dining plan threads are the ones that you'll often find me on. Glad you're finding it useful though.

We're not doing too well as far as credits go. We've got 4.5 days left and still have 51 QS and 45 snack credits left. We had a lot more earlier today but made good use of them snacking around Epcot tonight

Excellent report and some really nice food being had by all. Your knowledge and suggestions of where to go, what to order and the accompanying pictures will certainly help a lot of others make decisions on where to dine. Well done, excellent review/report. Have fun!
Thank you I know QS isn't really your thing, but thought it would be helpful for people on the qsdp to see some of the other options available. I'm saving all the lovely signature restaurants for our trips once the children are older and we can enjoy them more

Thanks for stopping by every day I was disappointed to discover the cinnamon flavour, but the rest of it was delicious!

The pizzas and burgers were really good. Definitely a great addition to the QS restaurants at Disney Springs

Some useful tips for how QSDP works for this year , top tip on 1QS credit for 3 snack credits , and also swapping drink for a snack especially on resort where you would have your resort mug with you.

Great to see you have found the delight that is Chocolate Frappe at Starbucks , "Venti" all the way !
The answer to whether it's 2 or 3 snacks for a QS credit is still unclear, but so far I've been able to do 3 everywhere I've tried which has been good.

Had another venti chocolate chip frappe today. Love them for a snack credit, but won't be parting with money for them once we're back in the UK - that's a habit that's too expensive for my tastes

No problem. I'm sure you'll have a great time. The food court has been disappointing so think that the temporary offerings might be better, especially if they're going to use some of the food trucks. Will be interesting to see what transpires.

Love the pan au chocolate looks like cbr has the nice ones, Por had the horrible sticky ones when we were there last, thought it was maybe a moderate hotel thing but maybe not.
I saw someone ask for half and half at POR last year and thought it was a great idea. I was pleased that they still did them here despite not being shown on the menu. The pain au chocolat are pretty decent too
