Smile Just the two of us. Part 14

Part 14 Day 11 Monday 09th October

Had a major lie in today, didn’t get up until almost noon! We had been scheduled to re-visit Islands of Adventure but as I knew we would be tired I had delayed that and brought forward Blizzard Beach and Mini Golf.

Before we set off to WinterSummerland we had lunch at Everything Pop



Cheeseburger & Fries - $5.89
Chicken Strips & Fries - $6.69
Nachos - $6.59
Cookies X2 - $3.78
Tax - $1.50

Total - $24.45



When we got to the mini golf course the Winter side was busy so we opted for Summer ($22.90 for two with no discounts). We were playfully competitive and I only lost by one stroke! Gavin 47 Me 48 on a par 56 course. We didn’t get the magic hole in one so no free drink. Gavin bought a pink lemonade instead $2.44.





A quick stop at Pop to get my swimming costume and at Blizzard Beach for 15.15.



I rode the Toboggans and Snow Stormers twice then Runoff Rapids once, I would have gone on the rapids again but the steps were killing me.





On the way out of Blizzard Beach we stopped for a drink and donuts.

12 Mini Donuts - $3.25
Hot Chocolate - $2.50
Sprite - $2.50

Total - $8.25, doesn’t appear to be any tax added to this receipt



Back at Pop around 17.00. I refilled our mugs while Gavin queued to get a package and he spotted some ‘Cars’ matchbox type cars and with a little encouragement from me he bought one of each type available $93.72. Gavin loves cars and has tons of them on display in our house, he also races remote control cars. At Pop there was only about ˝ of the ‘Cars’ available so every shop we went in we had to look. We managed to get quite a few before we left but Gavin had to buy the last few on eBay.

At 19.30 we headed out for tea. We had decided on Race Rock on iternational Drive.

Vegetarian Pizza - $8.50
Blackened Chicken Sandwich - $8.95
Vanilla Milkshake - $5.25
Coffee - $1.75
Tax - $1.59

Total - $26.04 plus tip









Race Rock was ok but despite our server been friendly and pleasant he was clearly overworked. I am sure Gavin had a soft drink which we don’t appear to have been charged for and he made the biggest mistake of all. Not offering us a dessert menu! We were given the bill as soon as our knives and forks were pushed together and Gavin had to ask for a refill then wait ages to get it. We would return though, like I said he seemed very overworked and certainly wasn’t rude just distracted.

We drive to Wal*Mart next to buy some sweets for work and get Gavin some milk (I cant stand the stuff) I also managed to find a case for my mp3 player. I have a Sony Walkman and all the accessories are usually for the Ipod. We were in Wal*Mart for ages, the place is massive and one or the other of us would wonder off and get lost. We left at 23.00 having spent $33.19.

Before heading home we checked out Lake Buena Vista Factory Store to ensure we knew where to go for Free Time check in, last year we had just followed Gavin’s dad here and not paid much attention. We found it easily enough but when I checked my voucher back at Pop I was supposed to have gone to the Travel City Direct welcome meeting to exchange it for a Free Time check in voucher, this is of course exactly what I thought I had, me thinks this is a ploy to get people to their crummy welcome meetings. After a quick look at our Photopass pictures online we were in bed at 00.00

Mug Refills - 2 Each
Weather - A cool but sunny 82 degree’s

What a great day, I adore those nachos - my favourite food at the Pop! I also love WinterSummerland and Race Rock. I agree though, the staff in there always seem overworked.
