August 2018 DDP - Is it time for a snack yet? - Updated 31/8 travel home COMPLETED

So itís time for another dining report, for those who havenít read my last one from 2016 itís linked in my signature.

We are off for two weeks staying at the Clarion Lake Beuna Vista, we weíre originally going to be staying with my parents and brother in Old Key West but decided to stay elsewhere, as we had our tickets added onto the room we have the dining plan. We love the dining plan, it means we donít have to worry about the price of our meal and choose the cheaper options, everything is paid for in advance (or free dining in this case) and we can try new things without worrying too much. This will be my 7th trip with the dining plan and I couldnít imagine not having it.

Quick Introduction

Me - 27, love all things Disney Parks, takes me ages to decide what I want to eat even though Iíve been looking at the menus for months and I can be a bit fussy. Dad likes to say I order a cheeseburger without the cheese and bun and swap the burger for chicken. I donít think I am quite that bad however I do always apologise to servers before ordering. I also have a weird thing about cold food, I donít do sandwiches unless they have hot fillings or are toasted, and I should apologise to my parents as packed lunches for me as a child must have been an ordeal

Favourites:
Quick Service - Blaze
Snack - All American Sundae from the Plaza in Magic Kingdom
Table Service - Raglan Road

DF - 28, a convert to liking the Disney Parks, well loving as he has just corrected me. Having a meal with him is not the best experience, I like to have a conversation and he likes to inhale his food and then moan at me for eating like a normal person (he claims Iím a slow eater) He hates cheese, well all cheese except mozzarella, youíll see a lot of his orders are usually followed with no cheese like mine

Favourites:
Quick Service - Blaze
Snack - Croissant doughnut
Table Service - Ohana

My parents and brother will also feature in this as we will be meeting up during the trip.

After realising we are terrible creatures of habit on the dining plan we have decided to throw some new restaurants into the mix. New to us this year is Teppen Edo, Chefs De France, Yatchsman Steakhouse, Tusker House and The Wave (only booked this to scope it out for our wedding next year and will cancel if we donít fancy the private room).

We will try to keep a running total of how much food would have cost us but I canít promise it will happen for everything, whilst Iím at it I should probably apologise for the half eaten/missing photos I know are inevitable.

Iíll probably throw in some non food related details as I know if somethings gone wrong then it can affect how I feel about something so you know when to take what I say with a pinch of salt and blame me being a moody so and so.



Plans
Travel Day - 1 - Premier Inn Heathrow
Travel Day 2 - Grab something in Heathrow, Grab something in JFK, maybe QS in Old Key West
Day 1 - Rainforest Cafe (D)
Day 2 - Teppan Edo
Day 3 - Be Our Guest (L)
Day 4 - Homecomin (D)
Day 5 - Tusker House (B), Ohana (D)
Day 6 - Coral Reef (D)
Day 7 - Crystal Palace (B)
Day 8 - Garden Grill (B)
Day 9 - Boma (B)
Day 10 - Chefs De France (D)
Day 11 - No Plans- MNSSHP
Day 12 - Raglan Road
Day 13 - Yatchsman Steakhouse

Travel Day 1

Today was the start of a lot of traveling for us

Our bus was 15 minutes late and supposed to take 4 hours, instead it decided to break down in Newport and we arrived at Heathrow an hour and a half late, shattered and ready to eat.

We stayed at the Premier Inn connected to Terminal 4, very nice room but a long walk

We decided to eat in their restaurant, no issues getting a seat and staff were really friendly. As we had an early flight the next morning we decided to skip the meal deal with breakfast as I usually feel queasy before I fly, another of my oddities Iím not a nervous flyer at all but my stomach apparently is.

We started with a garlic flatbread to share



This was nice, could have done with a bit more garlic but good over all and filled a hole. We were starving, it didnít last long and I apologise as there are two pieces missing from the photo, so quite a large portion.

DF got the Double Cheese and Bacon burger without the Cheese



He really enjoyed this saying it was much better than the burgers weíd had in TGI Fridays. He rated the chips as ok and liked the coleslaw

I had the Gamon with fried egg and Pineapple



I have recently discovered that I really like pineapple after years of avoiding it, not sure why I thought I didnít like it, love the bread pudding at Oíhana. This was really nice but the plate was really greasy. I tipped my chips out onto my plate from the starter instead. It was odd as the food wasnít greasier than youíd expect but there was lots of it on the plate.

With two Pepsi Max the meal came to £33.07 not great value but alright considering we are at an airport hotel. Food came quickly and staff were great, not much more you could ask for

Looking forward to following along!

My Fiance is very much the same when it comes to ordering things plain! Usually his order is 'no sauce, no salad'
We will be on the DDP for the first time later this year, so looking forward to seeing your food choices!

Hope you have a wonderful time!

OMG this is totally me, DF is usually really good and just takes off all the cheese where as I take nearly everything off and asking for something on the side is me being adventurous
