Gutted with the qsdp snacks, they have put the prices up so can no longer get the bags of graham cookies, and other items plus at EOS the limit is now 2.49 so cant get the strawberry granola or muffins, basically just a cookie, usually get snacks as pressies to take home, especially the cookies next years qsdp says you get 2 snacks!

We arrived at Orlando the same time as you; the weather has been well weird; we did Discovery Cove in the pouring down rain the other day!!!
Nice hot evening now though; hopefully it shall continue like this as the greyness is so annoying!

Glad you're having a good time; two of our group are just about to head over to AK to do the Expedition Everest 5k run/scavenger hunt thingy. The other two of us are getting ready to head to DTD for a couple (possibly quite a lot) of drinkies!

Lol, we are at DD now, sat like meercats making the most of the sun, debating wether it's worth having a ride to cocoa beach or st Augustine tomorrow, never ventured out of disney before as always had dd with us in the past! Glad you are having a good time too, hopefully the nice weather is back with us now!

Fingers and toes crossed for the good weather being back for good tomorrow!

Hi Julie, we had dinner at Bodies and we left about 9.30ish and got the boat back to POR as it got a bit too busy! Really not sure what to do today as the parks are mad at the weekends, all the good places seem a bit far for 1 day, I'll have to have a google!

Heyo, we couldn't make our minds up and didnt want to go somewhere we wasn't sure of so ended up at AK as we hadn't done a full day there yet and had loads to do, had breakfast at Rainforest Cafe and had a good day then back to DD for Wolfgang Puck. Might have a big more retail therapy this morning then head to Epcot later! Hope you have a good day too, sounds like you have been to some fab places, i think yesterday was the hottest day yet!

Oh no, the bread & butter pudding was one of my favourite snacks last year...not much value if I can only have a cookie for my dessert
BTW, where did you see QSDP will include 2 snacks again? When I did a dummy booking, it came up with one snack.

Good news, the bread & butter pudding is still on the dp (I had one today) , bit barmy though that the limit at EOS is $2.49 yet we had a $6 lasagne which was a large amount as a snack at the Epcot F & G festival
It was on the Complete Orlando website that it said for 2014 bookings you get 2 snacks with the qsdp!
