6 Nights of Chicken Wings, Car Accidents, and Calorie Laden Meals! 1/26 COMPLETE


Hello Everyone

I just returned from a 6 night, 5.5 day trip to Walt Disney World on Tuesday!

It was a really fun trip, I can't say it was the best trip ever, but it was really fun and a great get-a-way because the day before I left was my last day at my old job and on Monday I start a new job at Pepsi as a Category Analyst!

We stayed at Art of Animation and arrived Halloween and left November 6th!

The cast of this trip is me (Rachel), a 27 year old Ohio State Grad living in Minnesota and working in the CPG industry. I live with my boyfriend of 10 years (Corey, 27) and he also came along. The third person in this is my best friend Emily, she is 26 and has never really been to WDW before. She went to MK for one day in high school but didn't do much! She had to experience the full Walt Disney World Experience. We all went to OSU and Emily still lives in Toledo as a manager at Kroger.

We were on the Regular Dining Plan, which I have been using every year since 2008! I might have to pass on using it the next trip because it isn't that great of a deal anymore.

Here is a collage of me and Emily. We have known each other since Kindergarten and lived together all through college.


Here is Corey and I! He even loves Disney, maybe not as much as I do, but he still loves it. I am a lucky girl!

Airport Food


We started off our culinary adventure with the wonderful Chik- Fil-A!

Haha, we don't have these around here but it is at the Minneapolis airport so of course we were going to get it! I just love their chicken here and the waffle fries are so good, especially with honey mustard and ranch!

I got the 8 piece Nugget with Waffle Fries.


These were delicious except for one piece which was rock hard!

For dessert there was a stand with Talenti Gelato. I ordered Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip gelato. This was amazing. Corey and I both devoured this. The chocolate chunks were very fine chocolate pieces and the black raspberry was a strong, sweet raspberry flavor. If anyone has had Graeter's Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, this is what it tasted like.


I then had the delicious Delta pretzels and water on the flight

Next up: Boma Breakfast!

No, we didn't get in any accidents. It is kind of a joke that will unfold soon!

Boma Breakfast


Next up: Boma Breakfast

Our breakfast was pretty early this morning at 8:35am. We really didn't want to bus it there so Corey got us a cab! I went and checked into our package and when I came back there was a taxi for us. That was a first for us. I loved how when we took the taxis everyone opened the door for us at the hotel.

It was amazing taking a cab right there instead of hopping on a bus to AK and then a bus to AKL. We were then hooked on cabs!

I checked in and they didn't have my reservation. She looked for like 5 minutes and then just sat us anyways. After I sat down, I realized we booked it under Corey's name. OOpsie!!

Here is Corey's first plate. He absolutely loves that banana bread.


Here is my first plate.


This included the hugest disappointment ever- the goat cheese scrambled eggs. Now I had these two year ago and was obsessed with them. So much so that I even though about canceling this ressie after MickeyNicky posted they didn't have the goat cheese eggs anymore. So I took a huge portion and they were awful! They tasted really funky, were very liquidy and were lukewarm. The ham and the asparagus were both very good. Actually the ham here is amazing.

Corey's second plate.


Coffee and Jungle Juice


My second plate.


I took some bobotie, fruit, and more goat cheese eggs!!

I took the eggs to see if maybe the first batch was bad. Nope, still gross!

The bobotie was interesting and the fruit was ok.

I also tried some yogurt with bananas and strawberries in it.


the yogurt was a honey flavored yogurt and there was barely any fruit in it. The yogurt was very thin. It was a good flavor but it needed to be thicker and have more fruit in it.

All in all, I didn't love this breakfast. I really enjoyed it 2 years ago but I didn't really care for it this time. I probably wouldn't go back again. The only good thing is its price. It is only $18.99 pp, which isn't too bad. I do love the atmosphere here though. It is such a pretty classy buffet. I especially love the AK Lodge. I want to stay here someday.

Yummiest Snack in the World


At Animal Kingdom I had one of the most amazing things ever, which I will be getting every trip from now on...

The...

Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel!

This thing was so good. It was hot and perfectly cooked. The cheese was not too spicy, so if you are worried about it being too spicy it won't be. My friend Emily got one and she despises spicy food. She ate it and liked it!

The cheese in the middle was really good white cheese. There wasn't a lot of cheese in the middle, just enough.
