Hi there everyone! Jerseytinkerbell back again for the third time in 9 months! I've gone Disney crazy this year! I am headed back in 2 days for another food adventure with my hubby/Disney PIC. Here we are at Jiko on our honeymoon a few years ago. I literally just booked our trip this morning, so let me fill you in on the details. Hubby and I will be leaving Thursday night 5/10 for 7 magical nights at WDW. We will be having a split stay this trip. 2 nights at POFQ and 5 nights at SSR on DVC points. No meal plan this trip. First time going without it in 6 years, but I'm looking forward to doing it this way. I'm starting to feel a little restricted by the dining plan, so we're going to skip it this trip and snack a little more and share some meals and switch up our food strategy a little bit. We'll see how it goes and I will fill you all in! As for why we booked our trip at the last minute, let me explain. Hubby has been in school finishing up his degree for the last year and a half and just graduated yesterday. Woo Hoo! Before he starts his new job search we figured if we definitely wanted to get in a vacation this year we had this one week to do it. We can't risk being away once he starts going on interviews this summer and I am in a wedding Memorial Day weekend, so it was now or never (and by never I mean, for at least 6 months ). We decided to throw caution to the wind and take a totally impromptu trip to our favorite place in the world! Oh, I almost forgot. Hubby is turning the big 3-0, so this is a birthday celebration too! Okay, now the important info. The Food! I have already made a few reservations to some of our favorite restaurants. It's a little hard to get in some places this close to our trip, but I still got some good stuff. Kona Cafe (breakfast twice and dinner) Liberty Tree Tavern (lunch) Rose & Crown (lunch) Turf Club (lunch and dinner) I also made a reservation to a place we have never tried before, Yachtsman Steakhouse! This meal is a special graduation/birthday celebration for hubby. We will also be checking out the food court at POFQ, which I am super excited about since I have never stayed here before. Once we are at SSR we will be making a ton of trips over to WPE since that is our new favorite place, so prepare yourself for lots of WPE pics! We also plan on trying a lot of counter service and snack places we have never gone to before in World Showcase. Tangierine Cafe and Boulangerie Patisserie here we come! I am also trying to talk hubby into making a slight detour at the beginning of our drive down for a special treat to enjoy on our drive. Even though it's not a WDW treat it's too amazing not to share with all my fellow foodies! Super excited to share all my food pics with you fabulous folks once I return! See you all again in about 2 weeks! TTFN! Ta Ta For Now!
