Awesome parade photos! I agree that Spectro is better, but any parade with a giant dragon is good with me!

Update 56

Day 8 begins and this is our last full day for parks. Vinny is in a better mood as I write this asked him about Buzz and he still says he will not ride it with me. LOL
Well we have a breakfast adr with a duck. I opened the door to find.


Welcome to Animal Kingdom.




I love the tree.


Our destination.


We had our pic taken with Donald.




They put us in a great location. Only 5 tables by us it was nice. First up was Mickey.



Then came Daisy. I felt so sorry for the cm in there; the table next to us kept making fun of the height. Um, there is a real person there who you are making fun of. Some people are rude.




The food we had was good. The usual fare. I love the juice here but Vinny cannot drink it but I love it.

Goofy was up next and he liked Vinny.




I enjoyed the meal but Vinny is tired of going there. Lost the receipt so amount.

Up next,

Where do you think we went?

Update 57

After our meal we walked a little and saw.


Do you know where this is? If you do then you know where we went.




A little turtle.


Vinny went to guest services while I took those pics that was by the front of the park. Then we got on a bus and headed back to the resort.


The rest of the day was spent with over 2 hours in the pool. We also started to pack up because Vinny had an early departure the next day.

Okay this is why self picture taking should not be allowed.


Vinny as we go to dinner.


We took the bus to DHS.


Then from there we took the boat.


Soon we were at our destination which was also full of cheerleaders.


We looked around as we were early.


I did go in here and bought a few things.


Up next,

Dinner

Can I just say that the pics of Vinny with the characters are some of my favourite shots? Each one is so different. I do believe he has a thing for a certain princess.

Your MK photos are great-nothing and I mean NOTHING beats Pirates!

I'm not a fan of the Jungle Juice either. Much too sweet for me first thing in the morning!

I'm interested to see where you guys had dinner!

That juice is so good but it can interact with some medicine Vinny takes so he cannot have it.
Tomorrow I will post it.

Update 58

Dinner this evening was at Bluezoo. I had heard so many good things about it and we had the TIW card so it was a must for me. Our reservation was for 7pm but at 6:15 we checked in and were seated immediately.


The restaurant is beautiful and we had our choice of seats. So we picked and the enjoyed. LOL

Looking from our table.



Vinny trying to decide.


Drinks:
Scott – Agave Margarita.


Vinny – red wine.
No pic.

The bread for the table. This was delicious.


Apps:
Scott – bluezoo's New England Style Clam Chowder - light and brothy with salt cured bacon, house-made oyster crackers $9.50. This was so GOOD.


Vinny - Teppan Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops - braised beef short rib, silky cauliflower puree $14.50


Entrée:
Scott - Simply Fish
Our daily selection of finest fresh fish selected from coastal waters around the world, simply grilled on our teppanyaki grill, served with your selection of sauce below $34.
I cannot remember what kind of fish it was.

Also as a side order I got.
Shake & Bake Fries - grated parmesan, crushed garlic $7
I did not really care for them. I was really disappointed.


Vinny - Simply Fish
Our daily selection of finest fresh fish selected from coastal waters around the world, simply grilled on our teppanyaki grill, served with your selection of sauce below $34
No pic of his. He also cannot remember the fish. There were 2 that evening and we each had the other.
For his side dish he had.
Lobster Broccoli Stuffed Cheddar Potato $9


Dessert:
We both had coffee and shared.
Banoffee Pie - sauteed banana and vanilla ice cream, shortbread, toffee, vanilla whipped cream, banana ice cream, caramel froth $13

It was okay. Nothing to write home about.

The bill with the TIW discount, tax and tip came in at $ 160.42. I am glad we did it but not sure if we will be back anytime soon. I do want to try the other places in there also.

Up next,

Where to?

The food looked good, but for that price it would have to be out of this world!! That Florida sun can catch up with you.

I have always wanted to go to Tusker House for breakfast. Somehow I keep missing it, but it looks like fun. I have had lunch there and it was yummy.

Boo to the Magical depress paperwork being on the door. I guess that's one good thing about renting a car - you don't get that reminder.

You food at BlueZoo looks really delish. Too bad it was just "OK". Still, such a pretty restaurant for your last evening.
