The numbers added up for us! A Spring Break Free Dining Photo Report! 7/6 BackStage
 
Hello and :welcome: to my Spring Break Photo Trip Report! This is a mini report from my full Spring Break Report and this is all about the Food!

Our family is a family of Foodies and we often try to take advantage of the FD offered. I know some feel it's not worth the cost but to our family, the Numbers Add up! So come along, look at photos, get pricing and our reviews!!

I have been to Disney a number of time, 29 to be exact! The last few trips we have tried to only go to restaurant that were new to us. It's getting harder and harder. So this trip we hit we hit several new place and a couple of re-dos.

We were at Disney March 23-April 1. Party of 5, myself, DH, DD18, DS15 and DS friend, also 15.

We stayed at POR (full trip report link on signature). Least expensive for 5. Our rate was $259.00 weekends, peak season with 5 and I think $229.00 weekday. Even if we had used a 30% discount code on our most expensive day it would only save us $78.00. Lets get started and add the numbers!!:thumbsup2

First up:

Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery

http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/i...2/DSC_9847.jpg

Located in AK, back by Tusker House. A quick place to grab a pastry or Coffee.

My DD and I were on a mission. Both of us have a major sweet tooth and were ready for a late breakfast and we knew exactly what we were after! So off to the bakery we went.

Once we arrived we got a little worried as we waited in line, we peeked in the back and we didnít see what we wanted.:worried:

We didnít panic but very nicely asked for a White Elephant. We were told they were served about noon, and it was only about 10is. I think the look on our face must have been bad because the cast member said she would go in back and see what she could do and to our delight our sweet wish was granted!! YUM!!! Hubby had blueberry muffin...

Very moist and the elephant is made out of white chocolate so itís like two sweets in one!!!

Due to the time of day, the White Elephant Cupcake is not the menu, however the price is $3.99. Blue Berry Muffin, $2.79

So far using 3 snack credits total is 3.99x2+2.79=$10.77

Glad to see you here too! How funny! I've noticed that if I post a resort photo, I get about 150 views on it but if I come over here to the food board, I get 800 views! What does that say about us! Disney food is great!!!

It is YUMMY! And like I said the elephant is made of chocolate like a lollipop, so it's a two in one treat!!! It's a must try if you like sweets!

You are too funny, feel free to keep talking all you want!!!:thumbsup2:lmao::thumbsup2

This was about $900.00 less than we would have had to spend at WC so it worked for us. We were in the room very little so no biggie. I've been in every moderate now and I have to say, I loved CSR!!! It felt the most deluxe to me and we had a great room location!!! I'm learning location matters to me the more trips I make!

Welcome to everyone!!! More to come!

You are off to a great start and I can't wait to read the rest of your reviews!

I have never been to Krusafiri. I think sometimes I miss the little places here and there and I need to pay better attention to details, because I may find something amazing like the white elephant! :hippie:

LOL, I was wondering the same thing! You and your daughter look like young sisters!

Beautiful family :)

I can't get over the giant 15 year old. Wow - he is TALL!

Looking forward to following along. And wishing I had a cupcake right about now.

Cupcake and muffin looks delicious. We are paying a visit to AK in August so might have to give them a try.

We research deeply before we go and try to map out our dining. We love cupcakes and are hitting several cupcake stores in the KC area so we thought it would be fun to hit the cupcakes of DW while we were there!
