Thanks The T-shirt is cute I thought. Was one of those I wasn't leaving the shop without it! Dunno if they'll sell them anywhere in America. Penny's/Primark is a cheaper clothes shop over here.

I love the Disney Store. The CM's working there now some of them seem to have alot more love for Disney than the ones that were there this time last year.

I was there last night and watching two little girls in front of me got Disney Princess dolls. So the CM put them in seperate bags then showed the little girsl the box of Mickey Confetti telling them that Tinkerbell stopped by last night to leave off some pixie dust and this was Tinkerbells pixie dust. She offered some to both the little girls and told them they had to make a wish and then sprinkle the pixie dust into their bags. It was super cute and just made me smile!

Also Dublin Disney store got an exclusive trading pin. I'm on my way out to dancing at the mo but will take a pic later and try post it.

How sweet!

I wish we had a Disney store in the city we live in. The closest one is about 2 hours away.

I thought it was really cute. Some of the CM's in there aren't bothered but I like the ones that put in that extra special touch for their customers. That's the disney magic.

I loved the pin when I saw it. I love the exclusive Irish stuff. Plus the normal Europe exclusive pins they have in the Disney Store are normally 12 euro but that one was 5 euro.

I love those trees. They change the pictures on the trees every so often and I think I take pics of them everytime I go in there!

In other news I forgot to mention above the photopass cd still has not arrived. I was waiting out the 15-21 working days postage thing I get from slow shippers on ebay but tomorrow is 21 days so me thinks I need to ring photopass. They sent it Friday the 13th wonder if that's why it's not here yet having said that it'll prob arrive tomorrow now (one can hope)

Dollars burning a hole in your pocket?! No problemo!

While I'm here I thought I might as well update on my favourite subject.


Day 4, part 1:
Sunday 27th November 2011

Today was our first "rest" day. I put that in inverted commas because I cannot rest on holidays. I can maybe sit by a pool/swim for an hour or so and then I have to do something. I just can't lie by a pool all day or whatever because I'm thinking of all the things that I could do in a park or whatever else I'm not seeing by "resting" but we had spent two full days in the parks since we arrived so today we lay in until ten (a bit more rest because other days we got up at 6.30am.) Breakfast wasn't to exciting we had bought bits and pieces for the room so I had these for breakfast:

I am actually such a child. They used to have these in Ireland when I was little and I loved them. Was never allowed get them often because they were expensive and Momma deemed them junk and I was to have proper breakfast as mothers do so when I'm in Florida and discovered them like everytime I need a breakfast I get either those or fruit loops

Anyways we took our time getting washed and dressed and then at 12 headed outside the hotel to get iride to Premium Outlets we intended going to mass since it was Sunday so we went to the Outlets at iride stop 42. That is one very good thing about the hotel we were staying at as well, the iride stop is literally right outside their main entrance. We had a kind of funny moment for us anyway today as well because I had small tin of vaseline that I was using on my lips because they were very dry and I convinced myself that I was putting it on while waiting for iride but more on that later.

We got to the Outlets and while I got stuff in Tommy, Guess and Gap the main one and the one you all are probably more interested in hearing about is of course the Disney outlet store. I love this place:




I took pics of some merchandise I prob should have shared these alot sooner
Giant Duffy:

He was like half the size of me and reduced from 60 dollars to 30 and so would have come home with me except for the fact that he would have needed his own seat on the plane
I thought these dudes were cute as well:

They were 9.99 from what I remember.
I took this pic when I got back to hotel that evening but it's all the stuff I bought in Disney Outlet that day:

and just to give you idea of prices and a very good excuse to visit the Disney Outlets. Dress at front was 15.99 reduced from 32.95. The Duffy was for my nieces Christmas present so can't share price in case she sees sometime but it was 12 inch one and cheaper than parks. The little snowmouse was 4.99 again reduced I think from 15.99 or something of the sort. The vinylmation I got two the same one for trading mostly because they were marked 8.99 down from 16.99 but when I went to the counter they were 2.25! The Hip lanyard with Stitch pins was the one I found most odd I suppose because in the outlet that was 7.99 and it was the only thing I found in the parks that was in the outlet except in the parks it was 29.95 so how is the outlet selling it so cheaply? Anyways half the Disney store bought we moved on and I took random pics as I went. I think this was Tommy's window but I thought the Christmas Penguin was cute:

We went into the Dressbarn and spent so long in there we missed mass but Momma didn't mind. I found a dress I liked and was going to buy it but noticed a rip in it and it was the only one in my size so they rang the outlets at the other end of international drive and asked them to hold one in my size until the following Wednesday and the manager there said no problem. I thought that was nice of them that they were willing to keep it for us. It did however throw another problem at my planned holiday schedule as I did not plan to go to the other outlets that day some reworking of my plans as going to be in order
We ate at subway at some point during the day as well. I have receipt but no food pics! Once we decided we had seen all the shops we wanted we headed back to the iride and I took pics along the way of course:

I was very excited to see the Turtles. I used to love these dudes when I was little. Think I wanted to be Michaelangelo


Bye bye Premium Outlets see you next time:


Sorry that was a bit word heavy and hazy I apparently didn't feel the need to write much about it in my trip diary.


Next up Irish Liverpool man and Disney at Walgreens

Me too. If it's not here tomorrow I'm either emailing them or ringing them though because the photos have expired now and I think it's lost personnally because normally things get here alot quicker than that from U.S.

I sure hope your Photopass CD arrives soon!

I used to love Lucky Charms when I was little, too! Those little dried up marshmallows are just sooo yummy for some reason!

What a fun-filled day of shopping! I really need to get to the Disney outlet one day!

I think I'll send a search party out for the photopass cd. Praying it arrives tomorrow been watching the post like a hawk since last week.

Those marshmallows are the best. I love them. You'd think they'd still sell them over here what with the little leprechaun on them.

The Disney Outlet is the best shop in the outlets We love our shopping at outlets though because all the designer clothes are so much cheaper in America. Like I get jeans in Tommy over there for like 20 dollars the same or similar jeans in Tommy over here would be approx 200 dollars. It's crazy difference like so we fill our cases coming home
