I want to try R &C again I loved it the last time , I usually don't order shepherd pie as I make it regularly , still have to try the bangers and mash which were a fav. of mine growing up!!!

    All caught up now! I fell behind fast. Looks like a great trip so far! First of all I must say that I love the new do! The purple highlights are super cute! Now onto the food. I am totally jealous of your F&W experience so far. Everything looks absolutely incredible. I liked your story about being carded! My hubby always gets annoyed when he's carded, but I love it! I always say that I'll be sad the day I stop getting asked for my ID at the liquor store. :laughing:

    Thanks for the great Maya Grill review and pics as well! I had never considered eating here before, but that looks like my kinda place.

    I also have to throw in my love for Argo as well. What a great movie! Glad you enjoyed it too. :thumbsup2

    I hope you had a wonderful birthday! I don't normally go for Mexican but the Maya Grill is looking incredibly good all of the sudden. Boo to the lack of a Scotch egg at R&C... I could pop those things like candy.

    Your DH sounds scarily like mine. Sleep and food... sleep and food. For some reason this side of him comes out with a vengeance on vacation, especially the food part. He can go days without eating at home if he wants (too lazy to eat or something :confused3, I've stopped trying to figure it out), but the minute we hit the vacation road he is famished. I think he spent half our trip in Europe in fits over when our next meal was :lmao:... never mind the early morning wake up calls!

    Wow!!! F&W looks amazing!!!My fav thing was that ugly sausage thing from Germany! :rotfl: Sorry the roll was not spectacular this year.:sad1: We didn't care for the plain lobster claw last year & we LOVE seafood.IDK what's up w/ that stand. Both myself & DH wanna try that scotch egg. It looks really good! As a HUGE egg roll lover myself, I can say that's enough reason to stay @ MK til 1am, maybe Todd will agree & you'll get ur way! LOL!!! Well,it looks like you two are having a PERFECT vacation. Enjoy the pool, that sounds nice right now. :beach:

    I feel like a steered you wrong on the Lobster Roll at F&W! :eek:
    I honestly don't remember the dill on it - my lobster was nice and tender. Maybe I got lucky?! :goodvibes

    Loving the reviews and pictures - hope the rest of your trip is fun!

    Awww Nicki you are so pretty for your bday dinner!! Happy belated birthday! You look amazing. :goodvibes

    I learned something new about Citricos - didn't know they had an tapas menu for the bar. Nice!

    Sounds like you are definitely enjoying your birthday celebration trip with Todd! Loved the Maya Grill dinner - I think you have more than a few people now wanting to book dinner there. Your F&W options all look great even if some missed the perfection mark! Especially the spanakopita. Sorry it wasn't that great though.

    I'm looking forward to reading more Nicki and Todd adventures.

    loving your reviews :thumbsup2

    you know the difference with Cottage/Shepherds pie?
    We dont call it different in the UK.

    Cottage pie is made with minced beef
    Shepherds pie is made with minced lamb

    :goodvibes
    although most just call them shepherds pie over here.

    Thank you for reading along!

    Believe me, we are working on it :rotfl:

    I wanted the bangers and mash but it is no longer on the menu :worried:

    Better late than never :goodvibes

    It was very good, I would def eat there again

    LOVE IT!

    We have had R&C on the schedule for years but always cancelled it, glad we kept it this time though. We have always enjoyed The Wave but cancelled it last night because the menu change didnt wow us. Todd is a youngster but acts like a senior lol!

    You will love F&W, we never miss a year

    Thank you, I have to get that drink again!

    Coming right up!

    He is a trip isnt he? The pumpkin mousse was very good, jut too sweet to have more than one bite. I really missed my pumpkin pancakes, they are not something you see all the time...might have to get them at the Mimi's Cafe when we get home

    I wish we had those in FL, I bet I would love them! Maybe its a good thing we dont, I would eat a ton of them :lmao:

    That is so him! He does it with pretzels too :rotfl: More F&W coming up, I hope you and Tom can experience it one day

    So far it was the worst thing we have tried...being a Boston girl I know what a real lobsta roll tastes like :thumbsup2

    I will do my best! PM me your name and a picture so I can single you out

    Hopefully there will not be anymore sleeping in days!

    I havent read much on Maya but I am really glad we tried it, very good meal and excellent service. I make shepherds pie for him at home so I was a bit shocked that he ordered it

    The trip is awesome so far! I love my purple, its fading a bit quicker than the last time but I brought some stuff to touch it up with. So far I was carded just once, would make my trip if it happened again :rotfl:

    I was really hoping he would get the scotch egg but oh well! Todd has been known to work through meals and then gets super cranky...well dude, eat something and you will not be cranky!

    You will love it! Hope that day comes soon

    Thank you, happy to have you here!

    Me too Mary...our schedules just never jived. Next time for sure!

    Micky, I am so sorry that we never connected, next time I have to do better!

    The sausage from Germany was great! I cannot wait to get it again. And yes, Todd had 2 egg rolls again last night!

    Oh thats not your fault, I should have know better because every time I get it, its always ick!

    Thank you so much! I am hoping for alot more pictures and its been a wonderful birthday so far, great food and great weather!

    So glad you are enjoying them! The old R&C menu had lamb in the pie, this time it was just beef, thanks for explaining the difference!

    The nerve of us :rotfl2:

    Sorry about the delay, got in late last night and was just too darn tired!

    Originally we were going to have a pool day but Todd woke up wanting more F&W, who am I to deny him?

    Breakfast was at our food court, I was worried it would be a zoo like the day before but it was pretty empty. He has OJ, so glad they no longer have that yucky Minute Maid! I had a side of scrambled eggs and a side of sausage. Both were excellent!

    [​IMG]

    He had the cheese danish and said it was very good but the ones on Main Street in MK are better.

    [​IMG]

    He also had biscuits with sausage gravy. Once he cut it up we had to go back to the counter and ask for more gravy, which they gave him, no prob

    [​IMG]

    He enjoyed it, I do not like it because I am a sucker for REAL southern sausage gravy and this just aint it.

    Lucky for us the bus to Epcot didnt take long, and away we go!

    The day was hotter than we have been experiencing. The park was very busy too. After we got our FP for Soarin I took a few pictures of the bakery in the Land. I def have to go back and try some of these treats!

    Lunch was more snacking around F&W...we cannot get enough F&W!

    Beer Time! It was right at 11am so we just ordered one small of the Berry Weiss. Now I do not like beer but this was awesome! Very light and a touch of fruit to it, planning on getting 2 the next time so we dont fight over it :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    Caribbean Booth, Bacardi Torched Cherry Frozen Cherry Limeade. This was Todd's choice, I thought it was way too sweet, he thought it tasted like pink lemonade...not that great

    [​IMG]

    Jerk Spiced Chicken Leg with Mango Chutney. I loved this but not the sweetness of the chutney. Would def get this again, the meat was so tender and the skin had a nice sticky crunch to it

    [​IMG]

    Hawaii - Pork Slider. I loved this last year but didnt like it at all this year, way too sweet and overloaded with pineapple

    [​IMG]

    Greece again, Todd had to get the Greek Salad, he loved that it was drenched in dressing, I dont like it that way so I got another service of spanakopita...love this stuff! Didnt get the chicken souvlaki this time but we will get it later

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Canada again, I had to get that filet again! It was just as amazing as the first time, so tender and the line was long but it moved fast. We also had a Neige Bubble which was very good and not too sweet

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ireland, I really wanted the fishermans pie but I know I cannot eat it all myself and Todd didnt want it yet..next time for sure! Now the serving of the Warm Chocolate Baileys Lava cake is small but it is so rich that its enough...will def get this again too!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next stop, Belgium! Todd had the truffles and enjoyed them. We shared the Godiva Chocolate Liqueur Ice Coffee...OMG this was insane! So creamy and tasty and I just fell in love with it...should have ordered the larger size!

    The chicken souvlaki was one of the best things we had at F&W! Also, try the Ceviche at the FL booth. I sortof ordered it by accident and it was FABULOUS!
