Da

Magic kingdom. Well the mickey call came at 7.30. Was hoping to get to rope drop but after still being a little unadjusted we did not get there till our ressie at CP. food was nice but server was miserable. He presumed we were on ddp but when he realised we were not he was a bit more attentive. Totally different to our server at GFC. He deserved his tip. Nevermind TIW card covered it but I would hv left him 10% if I had not of had the card. Anyway when we came out it was starting to get busy. We headed to tmrw land but SM was a 120 min wait and fastpass was not working hence we missed it. We did stitch and philermagic in a row. We got a FP for little mermaid so headed down to fantasyland and went in the kids soak area as it was sooo hot. We did ariels grotto which my tomboy daughter was actually ok with. Then onto hall of presidents which Richard did on his own. We waited out side. I had a coke float and charlotte had a slush. It was nearly 245 so we sat outside HOP for richard and waited for the parade. It was good but I dont think they have as many floats as they used to. Still good though.
We ate at peco bills before heading to main street to the shops. We had had enough by now. I decided to buy a bracelet with a set of disney charms. I looked at the chamilla charms but did not like them. No where near as nice as pandora. I wanted the castle but the guy said it was discontinued. Charlotte bought more rice crispie things and then we headed back to catch the boat to WLV.
Another busy day but because of the heat we took it steady. Had a storm last night so the pool was closed. We had a snack in the lodge and hired a dvd which we all fell asleep watching lol.
Set our mickey call for 7.00 for a morning visit to epcot ; pool and then DTD in the evening.

Day 3 Epcot
To be honest it was just magic kingdom but after CP it was nearly 1130 when we git going. Just seemed a lit of people about but then im used to going sept nov time. Epcot yesterday was quiet. Did all 3 major rides by 11 and did nemo and living with the seas in-between . We had a look around mousegear marking what we wanted to buy and then headed back to the pool. Very overcast but warm and despite the 50% chance of rain we had none. We headed out to DTD for dinner at Pollo camperro which we all enjoyed. Then t-rex to get charlottes build a dino. A must even for a 10 year old. A late night in bed by 12 . Typhoon and DTD today as we hv a ressie at Trex. Not my choice but things we do for kids! Thanks for reading

I'm impressed they had chamilla! When we went last year they had a really poor selection of cheap looking ones - came home empty handed

Loving the trippy

I know. Iv tried to stay away from the main parks the weekend but have AK again today just till 2ish. I have never done half days in the past but have found it really good. Nice to break the day up then head out somewhere later.
We went to typhoon lagoon yesterday but charlotte slept in so we didnt get there till 12. It was very hot but we all really enjoyed it.Richard caught the sun but as he tans eventually and wasnt sore it wasnt a big issue. We left the park at 4.45 and went to dtd for food.ended up in WGP express. Tbh I thought it was expensive for what we had. We had 3 chicken noodle soups $7 each I had kids spag bol richard had turkey sandwich with herb fries and charlotte had a kids salad. With my discount it was $51!!!!!!
Hence to say we wont be eating there again. Next time will be EOS. Their soup was $2.99. After doing design a tee (which ended up being too small!!!!!!! We popped to hess and got a few bits before heading back to the resort. We hired a dvd and once again fell asleep during it. The weather despite saying rain has remained in the 80's and no rain.
When we come back tonight I am going to study nige's advice so I can upload some pics.

I would never pay OOP for WFE, great when free on DDP, our bill usually comes to $70-80 for 3 of us, good use of 3 credits compared to other CS.

Likewise. Great value on Dining Plan but too expensive OOP by far (even with our TIW).
