The numbers added up for us! A Spring Break Free Dining Photo Report! 7/6 BackStage

Hello and 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!!

First up:

Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery



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.



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

Great start! I had that same cupcake in December and I am in love. That was so great that they let you get it a little early too. Can't wait to read more!

Thanks so much. We try to always fit in new restaurants and with some DTD places opening this past trip to the dining plan, we hit mostly all new locations to eat.
