But We Haven't Lost Last Years Weight Yet! COMPLETED PAGE 32!
Helloooooooo and welcome to my brand new food report! I had great fun writing last years, so I’m back for another go!

MEDICAL DISCLAIMER!! I am afraid to say you are not going to see much healthy food over the course of this review. There is, however, a medical reason!!! Yes, I am able to justify the diet you are about to see before you! I suffer a bit of an ongoing tummy problem, which has been getting a lot worse lately. When I went to the doctor he asked me about my diet. I proudly (and a little smugly) told him that I eat about 8 portions of fruit and veg a day. He advised me that this is “too healthy” and I needed to cut back.

Well, as you will see, I am never one to ignore doctor’s orders!!!!!!!!!

So let me introduce us, I am Sonya and my DH is Tony. We have been together 7 years, been to Disney 6 times in that time (in 2004 I won a holiday to Australia so we couldn’t go to Florida . . . ironically I only entered the competition to try and win the 2nd prize which was cash, in order to pay for a Florida trip!), and in 2006 we got married in Disney’s wedding pavilion. We love us a bit of Disney.

Things we don’t like – seafood and small portions, so you won’t see much of them here! Apart from that we are pretty much anything goes, diet-wise!

This year’s trip was quite long! We spent two weeks in Orlando from May 2nd – 16th, and then a week on the Disney Magic cruising the Western Caribbean! That’s a lot of food . . . that’s a lot of weight to gain. Tony has already weighed himself . . . it wasn’t pretty. I am holding off for a week or so!

This is us on the formal night on board. Hi there!!

Had a bit of a rough start to the trip – we were meant to be staying at Port Orleans Riverside . . . when we arrived they told us Virgin (our TA’s) had cancelled the booking 10 days earlier, and the hotel was full!!!!! :scared1:Thank goodness for Disney customer service is all I can say. They found us a room at French Quarter (where we stayed last year and loved) and we decided to stay there for the full two weeks (nearer to the beignets!!). Took a few days for the TA to sort out the dining plan (which we were on for the first time) and our park tickets, as they were cancelled as well, but we got there in the end! And yes, there is a 6 page complaint letter in the post to our travel agents as we speak!!! And no, stress doesn’t put us off our food! :thumbsup2

So without further ado, a list below of the places we will be reviewing! We went to a mix of old and new places (to us) this year, and have a new surprise favourite!

:woohoo:! I can't believe it's already time for another one of your fantabulous reports! I don't want to miss a word (or a bite!) :mickeybar

I can't believe what happened with your TA, I am so sorry! Kind of a rotten start, but POFQ is so lovely, and even closer to DTD with a short trip to POR, so really the next best thing! :thumbsup2
