    I try to stay away from burgers and nuggets when we go to WDW. The kids eat their fair share of that, but I like to try and get stuff that I can't really get at home. I like the food at Yak and Yeti.

    Lunch at the Mara

    The kids wanted to eat at the Mara and we got them that same thing they had for dinner the night before.

    This day turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day and since it was only about 12:30-1:00 PM, we had most of the day ahead of us.

    After a while, DD and DH came back up and we went to Outback for dinner. It was SUPER close by. Less than a mile. We didn’t have the dining plan for the last two nights, so our plan had expired the day before. Don’t you fret, though. We used up all of those credits !! Anyway, we had pretty much planned this all week. And all week, it is what the kids talked about most when the subject of food came up. They couldn’t WAIT to eat …. at Outback. We have those here and we go several times a year. I would have preferred a Disney restaurant, but Noooooo. They wanted Outback. And it turned out to be amazing. The food was perfect and our waiter was fantastic. I didn’t get photos because most people know what kind of food they have. But it was good.

    April 7, 2013 - Breakfast

    For breakfast, I went down to the Mara one last time.

    I got DD a waffle

    And I got DS a croissant sandwich

    I had to MAKE him eat half of this. But I know he felt better after eating it and he was less grumpy on this morning. DH ate the other half, while I ate the other half of DD’s ginormous waffle.

    It was a good breakfast. Mara is a good CS. We enjoyed all our food there.

    No pictures of Outback :sad2:

    We really liked Mara when we stayed at AKV a couple of years back. There are lots of great options. Not sure about that croissant sandwich in your last review though - the egg looks a bit mushy :confused3

    Please say it isn't so, surely it's not over already :sad:

    Thanks.

    Sadly, yes. Just a couple more small updates and we had to come home. Had to get back to work to continue to pay for Disney trips, right ??

    Not JUST yet. But I only have two more food updates. Stick with me for another day or two !!

    Like always, DH and I split the shrimp.
