    Our holiday at WDW was taken at a much slower pace as I get tired so easily after my treatment - glad to be here still to be honest. As a result of that though I found that I didn't want to do a few of our evening ADRs and chose options closer to home. We decided to go for Olivia's one evening and loved it. It was one of our stand out meals and the atmosphere was so much less hectic than some of the park/other resort restaurants. My memory is a little hazy now but here are a few photos.
    I'm not very good at this uploading lark as they seem to be coming up in no particular order. We couldn't eat dessert so it was 'to go'.
    Banana bread pudding sundae with caramel sauce. Heavenly
    Key Lime Pie - a bit bashed but without doubt the best I have ever had in Florida
    Cobb Salad - very good but not as good as that at the Brown Derby
    Grilled New York Strip - perfectly cooked. Delicious
    Pork chop with smoked mac and cheese and spinach. This was ideal for my daughter as she is such a fussy eater but here were three of her favourites all on one plate. That chop was HUGE!
    Raspberry milk shake
    Vanilla milk shake
    My two being extremely silly - asked for a colouring sheet and crayons, so here they are doing their worst.
    Warm pineapple and coconut bread - absolutely yummy.
    This was a delicious meal in a gorgeous laid back setting and one that we would definitely do again.

    Glad you liked Olivia's. We too had a great experience there a few trips ago. We had a Good Friday seafood feast there as the parks were slammed and we too wanted a more relaxed place to eat. We were staying at PORFQ and decided to take a boat to DTD, then change to another boat to go to OKW. We found the trip to be very relaxing to and from Olivia's.

    Mags,

    Many thanks for the lovely report and photos! I think we will add Olivia's to our list of ADR's for the fall; that porkchop looks divine and the bread pudding...well, yeah, I wanted to dive face first into your photo...I can only imagine what the real thing is like!

    I love the photo of your children coloring...it makes my heart happy :)

    And for the record, we're all really glad you're still here, too :hug2:

    Sorry that the photos are so big. Not sure as to how to reduce them and make them more viewable. The food was excellent and I loved the setting and peace and quiet of the restaurant too. It was perfect at the end of a hectic day at the parks.

    Well, as I said, I've done breakfast there several times. Now I'm itching to do dinner.

    Thank you Wendy. They were tough times but I have had my 3mth check up (Addenbrookes is an amazing hospital) and without giving TMI, believe me it was thorough.:unimpressed: I'm a tough old bird though.
    To be honest I have gone through a 3-4mth period of forum avoidance as I just want to go back but only my daughter wants to go and she won't go without her brother. Time for plan B, whatever that is. :happybounce:

    I believe Plan B is the lot of us ganging up on your son until he caves :)

    Glad you've returned to us...we'll keep you buoyed until you go back :hug2:

    The only way is forward from here, what about if your daughter was to take a friend with her, if not tell your son to come on here and we will give him a 101 reasons why he should go back :D

    Don't get me wrong, my son has enjoyed his WDW holidays a lot , but wants so much to visit other areas of the States/world. I know I will find a way around this but it may involve bribery or some other illegal behaviour. lol
