Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!
Here we go! The famous Universal people movers, gotta love them. Wish Disney would implement some cool ones.
Got dinner reservations here, can’t wait. Already hungry.
So after our fishing excursion what better place to hit up then Animal Kingdom! MUFASA! SIMBA! Or something like that. Also finally got to check out PANDORA. Oh and the gluten free churros fuck yes!
Let’s go! This is where you start looking to see how busy the park is going to be. We were like yup, it’s fucking packed.
Ahh, I missed my favorite park.
Some trivia, I read there was a dragon on the entrance because it was suppose to be the Beastly Kingdom with dragons?! There really is a dragon on the entrance of the park. To Cool.
WDW Trip Report Day 3: We visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Was a lot like the Food & Wine Festival except the fact they had a bunch more flowers and topiaries at every turn. The merchandise was eh okay but still can’t find a 2018 poster, GRR! However, check out the adventure below. Also had dinner at Akershus House in Norway. The F&G Festival takes place every year sometime between Feb 28th-May 28th with several events, presentations all on flower & garden topics.
Love seeing the monorail, even before entering EPCOT!
We are IN! We always opt to take the photo at the end of the night, a lot more scenic to have a family photo at night.
Headed into the Grand Floridian for breakfast
So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.
Such a scenic spot to chill at and check out.
Quick parking lot magic band power up before entering.
Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.
I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.
We opted to fly first class on the way their since it usually is a good deal compared to economy. Our plane got upgraded so we got lie flat seats all the way from Little Rock, was an awesome experience and a excellent start.
Hit read more to continue on.
So not much went on in February and Early March except a bunch of work stuff so I only had a few updates for March and April until our trip to Disney coming up in May, that’ll be a bunch of fun. So I’ll keep it simple. March is always a busy month with work, but personal life it’s always chill and a lot of resting and probably a massage. March Madness eh!
Had some Sushi, Sake, La Madelines, and the lady made a dope ass flower arrangement for the beginning of Spring!
Gluten Free Review
+accommodate gluten free very well
+chocolate sack (lol) can be made gluten free
An epic winter time cocktail with lime, apple, cinnamon, rum! yum.
So making the rounds since moving to LR to all the fine dining establishments I think I’ve finally found one I’ve said “I’d come back here next week”. I kept avoiding it because the reviews about over priced, blah blah blah. However this place is on par with some Texas steak houses that rival the beef quality of So’s Filet.
If your in the area, you must try SO. They need a better name though!
Ordered multiple cocktails, Winters Mule, Green Tea, Strawberry Martini all were poured perfectly and had a great ratio. Even though the green tea drink is meant to be a shooter it was still good. Winters Mule is my recommendation to try while it lasts, great balance of flavors. The filet Mignon came out perfect medium rare and the mash potatoes were bone marrow infused and cut with the filet was an amazing pairing choice.
For dessert we got the Cardamon Creme Brulee, sort of small but super appetizing and had an aperitif that leaves your palet feeling like your full and you want nothing else. The Chocolate Sack we got to go and they made it gluten free with the cake/crumbles on the side. Even packed the to-go box with ice to keep it safe from melting. Check this place out if your in the area, so damn good.
So we had a great Christmas, many presents were opened and many travel plans were accomplished. After Canada it was time to get back to the real life and start enjoying some home time and getting things done. One of those things was making home made gluten free fish and chips. I will link the recipe at the end. I also haven’t had any fish and chips since Disney World at Raglan Road where they’re gluten free so I was pumped. It ended up being excellent! The one thing I will do different next time is make my own tartar sauce, the store bought kind sucks.
Fully custom fries, fish and chips! Delicious.
Look at that luscious fish right there, so juicy flaky good. Gluten Free
So been catching up with work and what not so will be making a post that entails my October. Didn’t go on any trips but I did try some sushi, make tacos for Taco Tuesday and got a cool lego set.
Who doesn’t love to start October off with some Sushi? Haha, however this place right by our house is excellent and always fresh. Tried this new Egg Roll Ameebi or something and was pretty tasty.
Also started Taco Tuesday, who doesn’t love a Taco on a Tuesday? Also below is a place called Gandolphos deli, a NYC style deli. Had good pastrami, no gluten free bread however.
Got this sweet limited edition Batman movie lego set with different figurines. It’s themed with the lego figures dressed up as batman but like a easter batman! to cool.
