Once we had gotten out the door, due to my…. distracted morning, we were running just an itty bitty bit behind the schedule that didn’t really exist. We decided to head down to the Mara and grab some breakfast!

Of course, since we didn’t have a schedule, I wanted to wander around and see the animals a little bit on the way!

These guys were hanging around by the outlook right off the lobby.



And right behind them, we found a Zebra, and the thing with the big horns! (Again a very technical name)



The adorable "zebras" (Thank you for pointing that out LOL) carved into the rocks! Too cute!



The beautiful stair covering!



Once we were done wandering there it was time to get some breakfast! This was going to be one of our out of pocket meals, so we grabbed our mugs, and got in line!

I ordered the kids waffle plate, and Josh decided to try the African platter! Since I got the kids meal, I also got to pick a kid’s drink. I chose chocolate milk… yummm I filled my mug with coffee, and Josh either got coffee or Coke Zero.



My waffles were a little on the cold side, but nothing terrible. I smothered them in butter and syrup and was one happy girl. My bacon was really yummy as well. I ate about 1/3 of the apple sauce, and was full, so I gave the rest to Josh. For $4.99 it sure was an amazing breakfast for me!!

A closer look at the African platter



Josh on the other hand wasn’t such a fan of his. He liked the eggs and the salsa was good, but he isn’t a grits fan to begin with, and the sausage was good, but very seasoned. He also doesn’t eat tomatoes, so those were a no go as well. Over all though, he was glad he tried something new!
For only $12.55 we were both full and ready to take on the day! This was our best value for a meal for the trip!

We headed back up to the room really quickly to drop off our mugs, and to grab our park bag before heading off to the park for the day!! We did however stop on the way out to get this fun photo of a hidden Mickey in the lobby!

Zebras, giraffes... Those things with the horns... It's all good.

Looks like a nice relaxed morning at the resort.

Grits, so that is what the white stuff was....The eggs looked good.

I have only had the flat bread at Mara and it was pretty good. The waffles look good and what a bargain meal.
