    Yey... another trip report.
    We left Universal the day you arrived... am already missing it.
    Can’t wait to read the full report have enjoyed reading about all the places you intend on visiting.
    We ended up at Sapphire falls one night accidental during an Epic Uber fail, ( my fault to many cocktails) it looked lovely. Enjoyed the two boat trips to get back to the Portofino as well!

    Kind of a quick drive by.......

    Having an amazing time.........weather has been beautiful, food is good....apart from one let down......and cocktails and wine have been flowing........had a couple of treats which have totally enhanced our trip.

    Sapphire and RP are just amazing as always ..........park time has been short, but fun.

    And.......we booked 23 nights for next May as we aren’t doing Mardi Gras party:........looking forward to that already......flights booked and hotel sorted!

    Hope you are all doing fabulously.......:wave2:

    Reporting back for duty :) nothing like the food porn here to make me suddenly starving at the end of along day lol. I am now hankering for sushi.

    orlando seems to thankfully have the ‘best of the best’ when it does come down to chain restaurants in the US. A few Longhorns we’ve tried in our area are so bad it makes me wonder how they keep their franchise licenses, let alone stay in business. :confused3

    The food you post in ur TR from the Yard-house in MCO always looks good. Tried their branch in Honolulu during last trip and both service & food quality were quite dismal. Was starving, but just could not bring myself to plow thru the prime rib french dip that was bit of an oxymoron, as it was incredibly dry (despite the broth) and tasteless

    I giggle when i see pics of the those donut burgers. look so interesting, just not sure if I could plow thru one despite enjoying the contrast of chicken & waffles with syrup. Do you find yourself picking the donut off and eating separately?

    Glad to hear you are having another grrreat time in Orlando. Having them roll out the red carpet has to be such a special part of your trips! It’s such a lovely resort, I truly wish SF would offer EP, even if they’d raise the rates to match the RP going rates.

    ::yes:: Yes, you absolutely do have to get something booked! Those AP are brilliant.........

    Yep, we just thought why not.........it would have been a few days longer, but we have 2 weddings next year either side of this trip, so instead of the planned 26 nights, it’s 23. Still a long trip though so I’m certainly not complaining. Makes up for missing a March trip..........:thumbsup2

    Hope you’re doing ok.....we thought about you in Strong Water a few times..........:wave2:

    And a warm welcome back to the lovely Keisha..........fresh from your fabulous trip! I’m sure you had an absolute blast......look forward to hearing all about it.........was it everything you hoped especially in Hawaii??

    Yes, the chains we sometimes avoid are fairly decent here.....Longhorn has a couple of good ones and a dreadful one.......same with the sometimes laughed at Red Lobster........oh don’t like the sound of the French dip sandwich......how can they make something so simple a bad dish!

    Well, I’m weird with burgers......apparently :blush: .......I use a knife and fork........I have my crowns and bridge to worry about so biting into that in case the bacon is crunchy.........but I eat it together and it is lush! And not as sweet as you might imagine......ok it is sweet :D but deliciously so......especially with the jalapeños......a must have on any burger! I love chicken and waffles with maple syrup but strangely never order it anywhere.........:laughing:

    Oh yes, we truly feel like royalty here.......they are so special to us and always welcome us like returning family......and so many people have commented to us this trip how everyone knows us there.......lol.......one woman in the Club Lounge came over to us and said we must be celebrities in the lounge as every single TM who came in were over to talk and hug us.......that was funny.......but it is lovely and we adore them all.

    So, definitely having the best time again.....even if we haven’t always felt the need to fill our day with stuff.......just being here is fabulous.........:goodvibes

    Glad to have you back safe and sound.........look forward to catching up.........l:wave2:

    Thanks Carole. I’m of the school of thought that, for better or worse, people often do get back exactly what they give. Let the haters hate, as surely, there is no shame in living a life well-lived, enjoy the moment(s)!
