Sounds like you are having a fab time, and your kids are such cuties, it looks like they are having a ball.

The hotel looks really nice too. Can't wait to read the rest of your report.

I still can't see the photos. (I can on other reports that use Facebook to host the photos e.g. Neoshoegal, even though I'm not a member of Facebook.)

Today was basically the Princess breakfast then a rest day. We spent a little time in the park after breakfast at Innoventions, then spent the rest of the day at POP by the pool.

Akershus was great. Not fantastic, but I think that had a lot to do with Alyssa being very tired and not in the right mood! The princesses were great though, although the room was very very cold. Alyssa's lips were going blue! I personally wouldn't do it again, it cost almost $80 and for me it wasn't worth that. Alyssa did get a birthday card from the Princesses and a cake though since she was wearing her birthday badge so it ended well for her.

It was nice to get to Epcot with no one else there.

We stayed at Epcot after breakfast for a bit then went back to POP around 11am. Three times we've travelled to Epcot now and we've still not seen the countries! lol We might get round to it, but I'm getting sick of the long walk to the POP bus to be honest so won't be going back until near the end of the holiday if we decide to go back at all lol. I do love Epcot though so hopefully we'll get to do the World Showcase.

We've been chilling by the pool today and I think I may have a bit of a tan! We had dinner at POP and got a shock when I bought the Mickey chocolate bars! Here's me thinking, aah they can't cost too much, I'll give the kids a treat. $2 each! For a little chocolate bar! Madness!

I've totalled up how much I've spent on food at POP and it's far too much money, so I've just ordered a load of stuff from gardengrocer.com which should be delivered Thursday morning (out all day Wednesday at Clearwater and tomorrow's delivery slot is full).

I'm part of a fridge swap, which I collected today, that comes with a toaster and coffee maker, so I've bought milk, bread and cereal. amoung a LOT of other things so we can have breakfast and lunch in our room from now on until I have to pass on the fridge at least anyway lol. I already bought some PG Tips from home so I can have a proper cuppa! Should save a few hundred $$$ judging by the amount I've spent in the food court!!

We're going to bed early tonight since we were all so tired this morning and we've got Donald's safari breakfast to get to. I don't think we'll spend long at that park as the weather is so hot it's unbearable approaching midday and there isn't too much for the kids to do really, not a whole days worth anyway so we'll either come back to POP or head over to DHS, which we were supposed to be doing today but we really needed a rest day.

Here are today's photo's. There weren't too many today doing the same things as yesterday lol.

You're doing an admirable job of reporting on the fly and a lot of us are reading right along, but remember no one wants you typing away when you should be out having fun. We trust you're only at the computer when taking a break from the parks and the heat. Having said that, let me hasten to add--thank you for sharing your trip.

Really enjoying your report and your children look great in their costumes. I love seeing children dressed up as their fav characters, especially at the parades in the Magic Kingdom as the characters always pick on children who are dressed up.

Good luck with the heat!
