Must Eats - Other Snacks

ok so the list of snacks outside of disney is thankfully much shorter, only two things in fact!

Butterbeer @ Islands of Adventure
Not to fussed about the special mug but I think we may get a frozen one to share!



Kings Donut @ Emack and Bolio’s, Hard Rock Hotel
I think it should keep us going for a few breakfasts!

Nail Art!

Teeny update while I'm working on the next big post (which is food related, OBVIOUSLY!)

I found these in debenhams today. They are for drawing on your nails, the colours are perfect for some mickey inspired holiday nails! I'm going to start practising soon!

Snack Changes!

ooo and one more thing. My snack plan has already fallen short!

The new france pavilion bakery opened this month and....

THEY HAVE CHANGED THE NAPOLEON!!

it's now the same as the ones found everywhere else in WDW so that will be removed in due course! very disappointing

Must Eats - Flower and Garden Festival

Still bemoaning the loss of several snack locations on our trip I was keen to hear news of the food kiosks for the flower and garden festival....

Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, fresh Zellwood Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro


hmmm not a seafood fan so... no

Angel Food Cake with macerated Florida Berries


doesn't look all that appetising to me :/

Waterkist Farms Heirloom Tomatoes are paired with house-made Mozzarella, Minus 8 Vinegar and fresh Basil


not sure...

Watermelon Salad with Pickled Red Onions


interesting...

Pulled Pig Slider with Cole Slaw


getting warmer...

Sweet Frushi made with Fresh Fruits and Coconut Rice
Hot Sun Tomato Wine, Watermelon Passion Fruit Cocktail, Orange Blossom Pilsner, and Blueberry Blue wine



warmer still...

Dole Whip with Spiced Rum




BOOM! now ya talking!

now that's a worthy replacement for the napoleon on my snack must do list I'm sure you'll agree ;P

ooo and guess what! I bought more shoes! you can never have enough ;P



I already have a pair of cream 'normal' toms but I thought these would look smarter with a dress or shorts in the evenings.

I'm also on the hunt for some wedges for the evenings and I'm lusting over these from ugg



still far too expensive though

Must Do's - Jellyrolls


Another must do for the list! Last time we didn't even know this place existed. In fact we didn't even make it over to the boardwalk area at all on our last trip! This time as we have an ADR nearby we thought we'd check it out after some of the lovely mentions it's had in trip reports.

It was great to have a quick re-live of your past trips. Love the minnie mouse top you've just got. All your plans sound fab and i'm very jealous.

Your plans look amazing!!

SSR is a great place to stay - we e-mailed in advance to request Congress Park and it was not a problem (I think they are used to requests for near the main pool / restaurant so Congress Park was fine!). Being able to stroll to DTD really was amazing! Earl of Sandwich, Wolfgang Puck and Goofys Candy Co in walking distance - yes please

Your wedding pics are absolutely stunning - I love your dress

Aww you didn't have to move it If I was to live anywhere in the world it would be SF, we LOVED it. If you do go check out a restaurant called Gary Danko, it's pricey but AMAZING

I don't have a direct e-mail address - I sent my request (along with booking details) to wdw.drc.wdtc.uk@disney.com and they got back to me the same day to confirm it was noted on my reservation

Oh I'll have to look that one up then, one day ill manage to convince my bf.

I just emailed a room request to the general enquires and asked if they could put a note on the booking, they replied saying they would but I don't know if it does work as most people say they have send a fax or phoned the hotel direct.
