All Feast No Fast! Nov 2019 DDP - Updated 20/2 Day 5

Hi all,

After what seemed to be the longest countdown itís now time for my trip.

Thereís four of us on this trip, me, mum, dad and my brother. We have a night at Gatwick before flying premium economy to Orlando where will then have a night at the Quality Inn and Suites near the parks before checking into All Star Sports for 14 nights with the dining plan. Weíve got all our table services booked and one or two quick services, I imagine our plans may change a little.

Pre-travel day: McDonaldís Lunch on the M4 and Premier Inn or Nicholas Colpepper at Gatwick
Travel Day: Premier Inn or Red Lion at Gatwick and Wendyís in Orlando
Day 1: 50ís Prime Time Cafe (new to us, dinner)
Day 2: Be Our Guest (Lunch), Ragland Road (Dinner)
Day 3: Boma (Breakfast), Teppen Edo (Dinner)
Day 4: Burgers and Sundaes at Restaurantasaurus (New to us, QS, Dinner)
Day 5: Garden Grill (Breakfast), Homecominí (Dinner)
Day 6: Nothing Booked
Day 7: Nothing Booked
Day 8: Yachtsman Steakhouse (Dinner)
Day 9: The Edison (Dinner)
Day 10: 1900 Park Fare (Breakfast)
Day 11: House of Blues (Dinner, new to us)
Day 12: Teppen Edo (Dinner)
Day 13: Nothing booked
Day 14: Boma (Breakfast), Coral Reef (Dinner)

Few notes for the above, my brother doesnít like Raglan Road so we offered him a second Teppen Edo as a bribe for doing Raglan, itís also why itís before either of the Teppen Edos. Iíve done Yachtsman before but my parents and brother havenít so that will be new to them.

Hope youíll come along for the journey and be as hungry as me reading/writing this

Looks like a good selection. I approve of going to Teppan Edo twice as itís been our fave for the last 3 trips! Also like Raglan Road so hopefully that will go down well.

Following along 😆

Teppen Edo is on there twice as itís my brothers favourite and he doesnít like Raglan so itís a bribe to get him to go

Pre-Travel Day and Travel Day

We grabbed a quick lunch at McDonalds on the way to Gatwick, no photos sorry as we were starving.

After getting to Gatwick, dumping the car and doing twilight check with Virgin we headed across to the Premier Inn. We made the mistake of heading up to the room before reserving a table at the restaurant. We headed down at 8pm and had a 45 min wait, as we had decided that we wanted the breakfast and dinner meal deal so we stuck it out.

I opted for the gammon with pineapple and egg.



This was tasty and I really enjoyed.

Brother got a burger, youíll soon see that itís pretty much all he eats.



He enjoyed and said it was a solid burger.

Mum and Dad both got steak.



Again they enjoyed and they were cooked well.

We were starting to feel full but as we needed to practice for the dining plan we managed to squeeze a dessert in.

My brother and I shared the brownie and the churros.



Sorry no photo of the brownie, well there is one but itís a blur lol

These were good and we were glad we shared.

Dad also got the churros and enjoyed.

Mum got a brownie sundae with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.



She enjoyed, she was getting quite concerned as there wasnít any brownie till the very bottom and there wasnít much.

Overall a nice enjoyable meal, the problem is you know all the good food youíre about for the next two weeks so you donít fully appreciate it.

Travel Day

I donít have much to report so will throw it in here, donít worry I get much better when we in Disney.

We woke up and had the buffet at the Premier Inn. Again this was good with a good selection of hot food.

We flew out with Virgin in premium economy.

Hereís the menu from 31/10



I had the stir fry and I donít eat plane food but tried a few bites of it and it was quite nice.



The others had the chicken casserole and said it was good.

They served afternoon tea where I left the tomato and mozzarella sandwich but ate my warm scone, it was very yummy.



After checking into Quality Inn and Suites by the Parks for the night we headed to Wendyís. I canít tell you what I ate but I remember being hungry, enjoying it and eating it very quickly.

Overall a good food day, but the best is coming x

Day 1

So we woke up nice and early and grabbed breakfast at the Quality Inn and Suites as it was included. It was very basic but filled a hole. They had:
Make your own waffles - plain and pumpkin spice
Yoghurt
Bacon
Sausage
Scrambled eggs
Cinnamon buns
Fruit
Orange juice
Apple juice
Tea
Coffee

Yak and Yeti

After checking in at All Star sports which took an age we headed over to Animal Kingdom. After a few rides we started to fancy lunch, Mum and I fancied Yak and Yeti quick service and my brother and Dad fancied flame tree BBQ.

Mum got Honey Chicken.



Mum thought this was nice and really enjoyed. Would definitely have it again.

I grabbed the Korean BBQ Tips which I spotted at the till as a special.






These were nice with a bit of spice, I enjoyed but Iíd try something different next time.

I got the food and walked it across to Flame Tree BBQ so we could all eat together. This meant our food was a bit cold, next time weíd eat there and meet the others after.

Flame Tree BBQ
My dad got the ribs and chicken platter



Chicken was ok but the ribs were nice, if he was ordering again he would just have the ribs but then he isnít the biggest chicken fan.

My brother got the pulled pork sandwich, he must have eaten this before I grabbed my phone as I donít seem to have a photo of it. He seemed to enjoy it.

We also got a portion of onion rings as a snack credit to share.



These were great, massive, hot and crispy. If you like onion rings these are a great use of a snack credit.


50ís Prime Time

Dinner tonight was in Hollywood Studios, after wandering around Galaxyís Edge. We checked into 50ís Prime Time and had a small wait after our reservation time as they were really busy. Weíve never been here before so we werenít really sure what to expect and I hate being picked on.



We were all really boring and ordered the same thing, the pot roast. My brother, mum and I asked for it with fries and no gravy, dad had it as is. Our server thought our aversion to gravy was very odd and couldnít wrap her head around it so brought us gravy on the side, I think she was hoping to change our mind as she thought the pot roast would be dry but I wasnít in the slightest. Just nice flaky juicy meat.





This was good and I really enjoyed as did everyone else. I was a bit worried when I booked this as I didnít think they could do fries and Iím fairly fussy so this was a nice surprise.



For dessert I ordered the apple crisp



I quite liked this and didnít think I would. The apples were lovely and warm and the topping was good and not hard.

My brother and dad got the brownie.



They enjoyed, not the best brownie theyíve ever had but they enjoyed. I managed to sneak a bite and it was nice.

Mum got the sundae, vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.



Mum thought this was really nice, our server thought the kitchen had been stingy with the sauce so brought her an extra little pot of sauce.

We all really enjoyed the meal. The food wasnít the best but our server and the antics made the evening. I mentioned before I donít really like being picked on but this was fine. It was a little playful and the servers are great at gauging how into it you are, you could see the others interacting with their tables and they seemed to give off the same vibe.


The only annoying thing about this meal is Dads been saying about going here for years and turns out he was right, hopefully he wonít read this
