Yay on relaxing in the Virgin Clubhouse and getting some food and drinks in before your plane journey
The Heathrow thing was a bit of a nightmare, but the Virgin flight was fantastic.

Thank you. We're really loving the beach club. We have a great room on the 4th floor, with a full balcony and a decent view of the lake and yacht club. Considering we only paid for standard view, I'm very pleased with the room we were given.

Thank you. We've been saving for this for 2 years, and I'm not that keen on flying so like to make the most of a trip when I have to fly.

Thank you. It was beautiful and I will definitely be returning at some point.

Arrival Day/B&C

We had a great flight with virgin, and arrived on time at 5 PM.

Here's a few pics of our plane food:

Pea and Basil risotto with prawns. The risotto was really tasty but the prawns were overcooked:

Beetroot tortellini

Bread and Butter Pudding

Afternoon tea - the scone was delicious.

We cleared immigration incredibly quickly, and were at the Beach Club by 7pm. After unpacking and showering, we were ready for some food.

We’ve never tried Beaches & Cream so decided to give it a go. It was pretty quiet and we were seated immediately at the counter.

I had the single cheeseburger, which was really good. The patty was juicy and the fries hot and crispy, with good seasoning.

DH had the roast vegetable wrap with fries. He was expecting this to be hot, so was surprised when the wrap was served straight out of the fridge. The wrap was nice and soft, and the humus was tasty but he didn’t like the cold vegetables as they were slightly mushy.

I couldn’t eat all my burger as I was full, but DH wanted to try a sundae for dessert. We split the No Way Jose, which I had wanted to try for years. This was as delicious as I thought it would be. Chocolate ice cream, covered with hot peanut butter and chocolate fudge, topped with whipped cream. It was so good, but we were full and barely managed half.

We called it a night after this as it was now 2am UK time and we were so tired.

Glad you made it safe and sound...I must say your non WDW food porn looked to die for!

I hope to get to B&C next month, we are staying at the BWI so its super close, maybe for lunch one day?

The No Way Jose looks soooooo good, I have not had ice cream in forever (thanks lactose intolerant!) and I think I might have to sample a bit of that, just load up on the Lactaid pills first I am a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate together

How is the weather in Orlando?

That B&C meal looks great. You were brave to get that so late into your day. Looking forward to the rest of your reviews.
Disney Wonder in September!

I really wanted to try Beaches & Cream on our most recent trip, but we couldn't fit it in. After seeing the picture of that sundae I am going to make it fit in to our next trip! Yum!

Oh. My. Goodness. This would be a dream trip for sure!!!! Have a wonderful time. Really surprised at how fancy-dancy the food was on your flight!

I love B&C. Never had a bad meal here, although I think it's safe to say I'd skip that wrap. I don't mind eating vegetarian, and we do 1-2 times a week, but that didn't look appealing if it was cold.

Have a magical trip! Cannot wait to read all about it. I'll wave as I walk by your resort--we'll be there Sept 23-Oct 2.

This will be my third dining report on the Dis, and our fifth visit to the world. If you want to read my previous reports you can find them here:

2009 - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2275706
2008 - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1980338

Who are we:

Me: 31 years old, will eat pretty much anything unless it’s spicy. I have a love for cocktails and desserts and can’t wait to indulge in both on this trip! I’m the planner of our trips, and have driven DH mad for the past six months, constantly tweaking our ADRs and resort (I think I've had seven different hotels booked for the last section of this trip!!)

DH: 39 years old. If you’ve read my previous reports you’ll have seen that DH was completely vegetarian, eating no meat or fish. In the past two years he’s started to eat fish occasionally when dining out, so this time it will only be a partly vegetarian report.

Where are we staying:

This is going to be our longest trip yet, from the 8th September until 1st October!!
15 nights at the Beach Club on the DxDDP
5 nights at Royal Pacific Resort, where we’ll spend time at Universal (can’t wait to see Harry Potter), go to Halloween Horror nights, and visit Seaworld for the first time ever.
Finally 3 nights at the Contemporary, where we plan to enjoy the F&W festival and MNSSHP.

The itinerary:

Travel Day
Beaches & Cream

B: Chef Mickeys (New to us)
L: The Wave
D: La Hacienda

L: Yak n Yeti
D: Artist Point

B: Captains Grille (New to us)
D: Hollywood Brown Derby (fantasmic package, haven’t seen F! since 2007 so really looking forward to this)

L: Coral Reef
D: Nine Dragons (New to us)

L: Sanaa
D: Narcoosees

L: Sci Fi Diner
D: Jiko

L: Wolfgang Puck Cafe
D: Yachtsman Steakhouse

B: ‘Ohana (New to us, very excited about breakfast with Stitch)
L: Kona Cafe
D: Room Service (figure we’ll be ready for a night chilling out about this time)

L: Tusker House
D: Citricos

L: Tokyo Dining
D: Cinderellas Royal Table

L: Chefs de France
D: Le Cellier

B: Grand Floridian Cafe (New to us)
L: Liberty Tree Tavern
D: Kouzinna

L: 50’s Prime Time (New to us)
D: Flying Fish

B: Cape May Cafe (New to us)
L: Via Napoli (New to us, and looking forward to trying the pizza!)
D: California Grill

B: Kouzzina

We’ll have 60 snack credits to fit in here too, but not sure how!
This will be the end the dining plan part of the trip so for the last week I have a more relaxed plan which is subject to change. We’re staying club level at Royal Pacific so we’ll mostly just have a late lunch, then use the appetisers for a light meal in the evening.

L: Three Broomsticks (hopefully if it’s not too busy)

L: Bubba Gumps (new to us, DH never wanted to go when he was vegetarian but is looking forward to it now he eats fish)

L: Emerils (new to us, and looking forward to trying it)

D: Tchoup Chop

L: Cheesecake factory (Really looking forward to their cheesecake)

L: Mythos
D: Contempo Cafe (we’ll check in at the Contemporary this afternoon)

B:Kona Cafe
L: F&W festival soft opening (hopefully)
D: V&A Queen Victoria Room (so excited for this meal!)

L: F&W Festival
D: California Grill

L: AMC Fork and Dine before heading to MCO for our 7:30PM flight home.

I’ll be taking photos of all these meals, and although I won’t be doing a live report I will be taking my Macbook, so hope to get a few updates done while we’re away.
Have a great time and I am sure you will not go hungry...
