Oh crud on the Ocean Prime mix-ups. But, glad you had some other fun times for your birthday!
Thanks.I'm not typically fussy at restaurants when the food isn't perfect....... except when it comes to steak!
If I'm paying a premium for a good steak I expect it to be right!
So sorry to hear your birthday dinner wasn't perfect.
We were one of the last states to lift the helmet law here, the mr won’t ride without one, thankfully. As for the fools who don’t wear long leathers or at least closed toe shoes or long pants...i’m Guessing they never had the pleasure of dropping their bike.lol.....it`s funny as motorbikes is one mode of fun we`d never entertain.....and it always amazes us in America the amount of people who drive them without helmets on....it`s the law in this country you have to wear them. The image of seeing these guys drive them in shorts and tees with flip flops and no helmet!!!! Jeremy Clarkson branded them mobile organ donors........but it`s scary to see that
You know something’s not worth eating when even cheese doesn’t make it better.wish I could like grits. We got a meal from a farmers market once, it was an egg dish and we didn't see it came with grits in it...….bleurgh....I almost did a very unladylike thing and spat it out on the path!!!!
I’m a huge fan of them too, love the halloween stuff. have discovered the wood wick brand which I’m starting to think retains the smell better as the candle burns.One of my favourite stores is Yankee Candle and the reason our luggage is often heavier than it should be!!! We get the newer scents a little later than America, so it`s nice being able to buy them as they come out.....although I do have my traditional favourites, especially the Christmas ones.
Thanks....glad you are enjoying it and I’ll tell Tom you enjoy the pictures!My goodness, step away for a bit and have enjoyed scrolling through your new entries. I do think you have managed to up your typical stellar reports with this one. Enjoying the pictures to no end

Yes, it wasn’t the usual excellent service we were used to. And yes, they didn’t address it correctly Which was what threw us the most about the evening.How incredibly disappointing about your special birthday meal. I know these things happen, but they did not do the appropriate things to make it right, IMO. Food you didn't ask for and didn't want? No, thank you. Like you, I don't mind the cost of a good meal for a special evening, but what a complete bummer that you didn't even get to eat together.
back mnmmoney......lovely to see you here!Happy Belated Birthday!!!! - what a wonderful trip! All caught up now and trying to talk my husband into another trip in May 2020 ... last trip was in February and we had lousy weather so I am so happy to get to see all your pictures and hear of your trip..... THANKS for taking the time to write all the details and ALL the food porn! Love it!
Ughh! I was so looking forward to your Ocean Prime review and I’m so disappointed . I know what you mean about not wanting to ruin the evening and not sending it back again, and why they tried to make up for it with a shrimp cocktail after you already had a lovely appetizer, weird.
The podcast team raved about a local Orlando steakhouse called“Linda’s la cantina”. It may be worth a try on one of your upcoming trips.
I know you’ll have some more positive reviews coming up, really enjoying your latest trip report adventures.
Yes, I had heard about that Tommy........I hope they extend it longer than a month. About time if they do......Re: I often wonder why they don't have a separate area for AP to just go through.....
I just read an article that they are going to add separate entrances for AP holders.
Universal Orlando Annual Passholders will continue to enjoy the UOAP Lounge throughout 2020, along with other new perks. Universal Orlando Resort has revealed that its Annual Passholders will be able to enjoy special perks like new exclusive park entrances and a private lounge during 2020.

Aww.....thank you Brenda......I’m so glad you’re enjoying it!Happy Birthday Carole!!!! Wonderful trip report so far. Can’t believe that Ocean Prime “dropped the ball” on your birthday dinner. Poor customer service. I’m glad you ended the evening with a lovely drink at your favourite spot! Please tell Tom - amazing pictures! ( as always ). Can’t wait to see what happens next.......
I'm sorry to hear your special birthday dinner was less than special; so sad when the restaurants we love disappoint us. I hope the next time is better!We did buy the white chocolate skull
