Sounds like a lovely day.

I was OK on Everest, though the first time I went on The Mummy Returns at Universal, I had a similar experience to you. My husband told me it wasn't a rollercoaster just an indoor movie ride, I went along with it, even though I was suspicious when I saw the 'this is a fast ride' signs. OMG, I have never been so scared in my life, hated it. Though when we went back a couple of years later I thought I'd go on again, since I knew what to expect.... well no they'd changed the ride a bit and I was equally as frightened. :L

...Continued





On the way Kade spotted Duffy so we jumped in the queue to wait for him.
He was really good fun actually and had a little more fun than some of the other characters as he pinched Kade’s hat, put it on his nose and pretended to do a big sneeze into it before holding it high above his head so Kade had to try and jump for it!


Putting Kades hat on his nose until............


ACHOO!!!!!

Kade thought it was fun but when we were walking away he was checking his hat for anything sticky in there!


Checking for Duffy's sneeze!


Stopped to watch these guys along the way.

Once we got to Soarin we jumped in the FP queue and only had to wait about 5mins before we were in. It did feel a little on the cheeky side when all those people have been queuing for ages and we just saunter on past lol
I have to admit once we were in I was feeling a little anxious with all the strapping in about what was going to happen with the ride but once we started I absolutely loved it!!! Well, we all did. It was just a shame it seemed to be over too quick.

Next was time for a lolly break and a bit of people watching before popping into a shop and buying a small soft toy Stitch.
So after another little walk around we came across ‘Spaceship Earth’ so thought we’d have a go after making sure I wasn’t going to be going into another Expedition Everest scenario lol.



Seeing it was a slow moving ride I was happily reassured and off we went. Kade and I sat in one carriage with Marcus sat behind. When you set off you get your pic taken which I thought they would try and sell at the end but instead whilst you are on the ride it asks you to input some answers to questions in the computer displayed on screens bedded in the seats in front such as where you are from and what areas you are interested in to tailor make your ideal future.
Anyway, once it’s done, the pic’s it had taken earlier are implanted onto some cartoon bodies while they do stuff tailored to the answers you gave. Well Kade and I found this hilarious and laughed our heads off the entire way back down.


Everyones pics gets displayed at the end!

After this we mooched round some of the park again before making our way out.
Luckily we spotted Stitch again near the exit with only half a dozen people queuing so we joined them and got a pic & autograph. Stitch really liked Kades Stitch lol.



We caught the bus back and by this time it had started to cloud over then just as we were nearing our stop, the heavens opened and it lashed it down!
We ran all the way to our apartment but still got back resembling 3 drowned rats!

Our evening meal was to be and the Turf bar & Grill again as it was nice and easy being only a 5min walk away.
We all shared Buffalo Chicken with handmade crisps & Onion Rings with dips for starter.
I had minted lamb chops with honey mustard gravy and buttered quino & broccoli. This was gorgeous and highly recommended.
Marcus had steak with mash & broccoli and Kade had a Cheeseburger with carrot stix and celery.
Marcus had Cheesecake for dessert and Kade a DIY ice cream sundae.

Day 6 – Hollywood Studio’s & Phantasmic – Friday 20th April 2012

Awoke at 7am but didn’t bother getting up till 8.30am.

Marcus took Kade to the Paddock pool while I sat on the patio area to soak up some sun but the pair appeared 10mins later as it didn’t open till 10am.
We all decided to venture down at 10am and Marc & Kade played in the pool whilst I lazed on the many available sun loungers.


On our way to the pool.

We had lunch at the pool bar. I had a chicken salad with chocolate fudge cake for dessert.
Marcus had a spicy fish burger with fries followed by Cheesecake (OMG, just noticing how often Marc has had cheesecake! ) and Kady had a Cheeseburger with carrots & grapes.

After lunch, I headed back to the apartment leaving Kade & daddy playing in the pool.
Once they landed home around 1.30pm, we set off to catch the bus for Hollywood Studio’s.





We were very excited to be here as this was the where we were going to see Phineas & Ferb (Kade’s favourite) but just as we were approaching them, we saw they were just leaving!!
We told Kade they would be back soon so ventured on to the Indiana Stunt show.



Now unfortunately by this point I wasn’t feeling on best form and was really feeling the heat. So we had sat down and the show started but it was so loud, Kade got very restless covering his ears and I was feeling less than well with the heat so we decided to leave.




Cooling down in one of the shops

We wandered around before escaping into the Little Mermaid Show, which was a welcome break from the heat.
Apparently a man at the pool back at resort had told Marcus it was unseasonably hot for this time of year!

Nicely cooled down and feeling much better we came out and noticed ‘Playhouse Disney Live’ was right opposite and the show was just about to start so we went straight across there to watch the show. Now any mums of younger kids will probably know all the shows that were on here along with the songs and I was no exception. I was singing along (for the sake of Kade you understand) but secretly I was really enjoying it





Once the show was done the doors opened but no one moved as it was absolutely teaming it down. I remember Wayneg on here saying ‘when it rains it rains’ and boy was he right!!
We ended up waiting in the lobby of the Brown Derby, where we were to eat a bit later, for 20mins with crowds of other people!
When it finally eased off a little, Marcus said he would take Kade to see if they could see Phineas & Ferb as he guessed the queues might be low because of the rain so we ventured outside and I waited under a stroller shelter instead.


After the rain!

15mins later a wet, grumpy looking pair appeared. It turns out they got in the queue but when it got to their turn they realised I had the Photopass card so had to come away!!
I promised Kade he would get to see P&F eventually and we set off for a wander round the wet park as there wasn’t much time to fit anything else in before our meal reservation at the Hollywood Brown Derby. This again was a signature restaurant and we had coupled it with the phantasmic show as a meal package.

When it was time we went into the restaurant and I couldn’t help feeling a little bedraggled in our shorts & t-shirts looking rather damp as we were escorted into the big posh dining room. It just had a feeling of ‘sit up straight and use your manners’ feeling about it lol.
Anyway, the service and food were fabulous!



I had Blue Lump Crab Spring Rolls, Snow Crab Claw, and an Asian Slaw with spicy Miso Aioli for starter with Grilled Loch Duart Salmon, Blue Cheese Polenta Cake, and Spring Vegetables sauteed with Tapenade and Kalamata BeurreBlanc for main.


This starter was gorgeous!!



Marcus had Feuilles de Brick Napoleon of Bleu Affinee, Wild Mushroom Duxelles, Grilled Portobello, Golden Chanterelles, and a Fig Reduction for starter followed by an 8oz Charred Filet of Beef glazed with a Red Wine Reduction topped with a Cabernet and Roasted Shallot Butter over White Truffle Forest Mushroom Whipped Potatoes.





Kade had Tempura Fish Strips with Steamed Broccoli and Dipping Sauce withGummy Snakes, and a Toll House Cookie





Dessert was Grapefruit Cake—Brown Derby Original! Light Layers of Yellow Cake with fresh Grapefruit-Cream Cheese Icing



So after leaving the Brown Derby full and satisfied we thought we would try Phineas & Ferb again but stopped along the way to buy some ponchos as we figured we couldn’t trust the rain to hold off seeing as the show this evening was outside.

Luckily P&F were there but only till 7pm and the queue was quite long but we got in it anyway as Kade wouldn’t have been a happy bunny otherwise.

Luck must have been on our side as by the time it got to our turn it was 6.55pm so he was just in the nick time



After the pic’s we took a slow stroll towards Phantasmic as Marcus said it had been advised to get there a bit early to make sure of a good seat.



By the time we were queuing to get in it had started to rain again so the ponchos had definitely been a good call

....Continued

We were sat down by 7.30pm but the show wasn’t starting until 8.30pm so we had a bit of a wet wait but kept our spirits up.





At about 8.15pm the man announced that the show may be cancelled due to the weather but luckily as if by magic 10mins later the rain stopped and the show went ahead as planned, phew.







We all really enjoyed Phantasmic and headed home after it to get into bed around 10.30pm.

Day 7 – Chill out/Shopping Mall – Saturday 21st April

Arose around 8.15am and Marcus went out to grab breakfast again although Kade & I just fancied cereal. The fridge was actually getting fuller and fuller rather than emptier with the amount of juice, uneaten stuff we’d bought from Walmart and leftover food like desserts that we would sometimes ‘take out’ rather than eat in. We found we just couldn’t eat it all quickly enough before it was time for the next meal!

Anyway Marcus & Kade got their trunks on (or Dunks as they like to call them) and went off to the pool while I stayed behind and caught up with a few emails and what not.
At about 11.15am Marc & Kade returned and we had a stroll up to the Artists Pallate for some lunch.

I had a turkey & Cranberry sandwich with crisps & a carrot cake.



Marcus had a Pepperoni flatbread with Cheesecake for afters



Kade had Mac’n’Cheese with carrot sticks followed by a cookie.



After lunch we hopped in the car and headed out to find the Premium Outlet Shopping Mall.
This was only a short 10min drive away. When we got there we couldn’t believe how many cars were in the car park!! It seemed a huge car park that went on for ages but there was barely a space available! Probably as it was a Saturday I guess.
Once finally parked we had a walk round and I loved the fact there were so many big brand shops there. Every shop you could think of really!





I ended up buying a pair of True Religion shorts ($129 reduced from $209!) & a Florida T-shirt and 3 t-shirts from American Apparel.
Marcus bought some shorts and a t-shirt from AA and Kade got a Jack Sparrow Figure from the Disney shop.
We spent a bit more time milling in & out of the shops before making our way home.

Our meal this evening was to be at Capin’ Jacks at DTD.


Waiting for our boat


Here she comes!

The weather wasn’t looking too smart on our way there and by the time we were just getting in to the restaurant, it was starting to rain. We sat by the window overlooking the water watching the rain.
The meal was really nice.
I had Clams for starter and the restaurant special for main, which was a bucket of seafood that included prawns, chicken, clams, mussels and red skin potatoes in a spicy broth.



Marcus had Veg soup followed by Chicken Breast on a bed of Penne Pasta.



Kade shared my starter then had salmon with green beans and potato wedges.



For desserts we had key lime pie (to go), cheesecake (again!!) and a cookie for Kade.

By the time we’d finished the rain was showing no sign of stopping so we decided to make our way home. We had planned to take one of the little boats out but figured it wouldn’t have been much fun in the rain

We stopped at the shop in the Artists Palate on the way back to the apartment and bought some snacks that would keep to take home as we realised we still had 70 snack credits left!
Marcus bought himself a Goofy t-shirt then we retreated back home for the evening.

I'm with your hubby here...LOVE LOVE LOVE the Cheesecake in WDW.

What did you buy with all those snack credits? We ended up going into Goofy's candy store in DTD and buying loads of stuff. We took home a massive box of handpicked fresh cookies etc once.

Bet you are planning on going back as you certainly seemed to have loved every moment of it.

now I love cheesecake too but honestly Vanda, it's looking like he had some kind of addiction to it

We actually ended up buying another suitcase to fit in loads of snacks like boxes of candies, chocs, cookies, chip'n'dale snacks etc and all the other stuff we bought.

For sure!! I would go back tomorrow if we could. Definitely going to start planning our next trip soon

We really did have a wonderful time!! We didn't have too much rain when we were there to be honest. A few days here and there but nothing much. It was still warm yes but nothing was going to dampen our spirits anyway

Thanks for reading x

Day 8 – Magic Kingdom 2nd visit – Sunday 22nd April 2012

Got up at 7am and was out to catch the bus to Magic Kingdom for 8.15am.
We arrived a little early but sat and waited with the others and enjoyed the sun. I love the sun at that time of day. Not too hot but just right





Once in we headed straight for the Runaway train ride but it was closed for maintenance! Marcus and Kade were a little disappointed but I was quite relieved, as I didn’t really want to go on it as it looked like a fast one!!
We looked at Splash Mountain but figured we wouldn’t have time as we had a breakfast reservation with Pooh and his friends so decided to come back to this later.
As we made our way back toward the Crystal Palace, we spotted POC was empty so we nipped in there for a quick ride instead.



We queued outside the Crystal Palace and again waited with our buzzers to be called. It wasn’t too long (about 10mins) before we were called in and seated.



Breakfast was buffet style again which was my fave thing because I like to get small amounts of a lot of things rather than a lot of one thing, if that makes sense?
I got some breakfast lasagne, which was a lot nicer than it sounds and a chocolate bread thing, and then just got up for other little bits throughout.


Breakfast lasagne...yum!

Marcus & Kade got a mixture of stuff and Kade got to meet all the characters.





He met Piglet twice as we think he must have got change and swapped guys so didn’t realise the other one had already been down our side. Lol




Not quite sure what he had against Eeyore here lol



After breakfast Kade really wanted to go on Splash Mountain so we headed back down. It was much busier now but the queue still wasn’t too bad. I decided to wait as the drop looked a bit high to go on straight after my brekkie lol so I waited on the bridge, camera poised, as they went on.





Next up was the Bear Jamboree then straight out and into the Tiki room show.
This was ok but definitely not my favourite and I was quite surprised to read somewhere that it was meant to be Walt Disney’s favourite show!







Anyway as we were walking down past the castle we were just in time to catch the Celebrate Parade. I thought this was fab!!
There was a young guy opposite us and he really made me smile & laugh as he was dancing so much and really getting into it! He was fantastic and I was watching him just as much as the parade!!








This was the guy.....he was ace!!



Continued....

…..Cont

Once the parade was done we wandered down toward the buzz lightyear ride and got ourselves some fast passes then found the Monsters Inc Comedy show. The queue was massive and seemed to take forever for us to get in and seated.
Now unfortunately I have to say I am not one of life’s most confident souls, more of a ‘rather blend into the background’ type really so you can imagine my horror when the show started and I realised they had cameras that zoom in on you and pick you out whilst getting you to join in!!!!!
Ok so granted, it wasn’t everyone and it was only if you were picked but I was just like ‘oh my god, oh my god, please, please, please not me!’
In the end I couldn’t stand the anticipation anymore when the guy in the row in front got picked out and had to pretend to be a chicken or something daft so I ended up getting up and sneaking out! Now I know it’s all a bit of fun but I really just couldn’t have done that in front of everyone if they picked me!

So with my personal drama over we went on to grab some lunch outside a QS restaurant and had hotdogs, crisps and cookies.
Next we found the ‘Carousel Of Progress’, which believe it or not turned out to be Kade’s most favourite thing!! Not what you’d expect from a 4yr old but hey

Once we came out of here, we went on to the Buzz Lightyear ride to use our FP’s.
I really enjoyed this and am happy to say beat the boys by a mile

Kade asked to go on the people mover so we took a whizz round on that before spotting a Buzz photo op.






Looks like Buzz is trying to crush him!!

This done, we thought we’d start to head out but just ended up catching a Parade before we left.







Once back, we got ourselves freshened up and went back out to catch the boat to DTD again as our meal tonight was to be at the ‘House Of Blues’.
We arrived to the boat dock but were told our boat would be about 20mins so we decided to take a walk on the scenic route, which was lovely actually and only took 10-15mins or so.

We had a mooch around the shops and I ended up buying some lovely ‘See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil’ figures that I really liked.



When it was time to eat we went to the House Of Blues and I have to say, this turned out to be my favourite meal of the holiday! It was gorgeous!!
We all shared Jerk Chicken & Barbeque Chicken Wings for starter then I had Shrimp & Grits, which is Jumbo Shrimp on a Fried grit cake in a garlic cream sauce served with veg. Delicious!!!!!



Marcus had Jambalaya, which was marinated chicken, spicy sausage & peppers etc in a jambalaya sauce.



Kade had Chicken tenders with veg.



I asked for my dessert to go but ended up sharing Marc’s huge pud, which was ‘Bourbon Bread Pudding’ and was soooooo good!



Now the only problem with tonight’s meal was that we’d all eaten so much that we felt so full & sick later.
You know when you’ve drunk too much and you swear never again? Well it was kind of like that with this. I swore I’d never eat again!

On the way home we stopped off at the AP shop again to stock up on some more snacks that we could take home with us as we were beginning to realise that we were going to have quite a few credits left at this rate.
Went to bed feeling bloated and fat!!

Day 9 – Seaworld – Monday 23rd April 2012

Got up at 7.15am this morning and Marcus & Kade went out for breakfast. I didn’t bother as I still had a bit of tummy ache from last night.
On the boys return we hopped in the car and set off for SeaWorld at about 8.40am. When we arrived the car park was already getting busy but we still parked fairly close and made our way in.





As we were approaching the entrance we saw a sign that said ‘No food or drinks’ and saw your bags got searched. We had packed bottles of water and some cookies so thought we were going to have to ditch them but the guy just looked through and let us pass
Next was paying and here’s where we learned another lesson. Get discount before you go!! At $250 we thought it was quite a lot.

Anyway, the first ride we saw was the Manta ride that you can see from the road but after contemplating it for a minute, Marc decided to give it a miss. It did look ridiculously fast!!



Instead we ventured down until we found ‘Journey To Atlantis’. The park was near on empty down here and the ride had no one on it.
I decided the drop was too big for me so opted to stay with the stroller while the boys went on it.





They appeared at the top of the chute in a boat with a couple of others and splashed down! They said it was better than Splash Mountain.

Next we moved onto our first show ‘Blue Horizons’. This was quite impressive with the performers in their costumes, the tropical birds and the beautiful dolphins.









After the show we had a look around ‘Dolphin Cove’ which I really liked and could watch these creatures swimming all day!

We had a walk around the park and Kade had a quick go on the ‘Sea Carousel’ ride.



From here we wandered round till Kade spotted a large outdoor play area and made a beeline for it so we took the opportunity to grab a coffee and snack and sit down for 10mins.



We had a bit of a ‘panic’ moment here though as I lost sight of him in the play bit, so after a few mins of not being able to see him, I sent Marcus to go in while I waited by the exits to try and see him. Anyway Marc came out shrugging his shoulders saying he wasn’t there. Now, fortunately we have never been in this sort of situation before but I could start to feel myself starting to panic even though I knew he probably wouldn’t be far away. We looked everywhere and I was almost at the point where I was going to look for someone to alert when Marcus shouted me over. The little monkey had apparently slipped past us and gone to the toddler playship behind us!!
He didn’t have a clue why mummy & daddy was a bit upset but it was probably a good thing as it made us set out some clear ground rules with him such as what to do if he were to get lost etc.

Anyway, minor heart attack over, we got in the queue for Shamu Express but were less than impressed with this ride. Even Kade said it was rubbish lol.

Ocean Commotion ride was up next before we made our way to the ‘One Ocean’ show. We enjoyed this and found it very funny to watch everyone at the front getting soaked.





It was actually freezing cold here though as we were seated right at the back at the top and it was really windy so was a little bit nippy to say the least.

Happy to get back in the warmth of the sun we then ventured on to the Wild Artic Ride….but without the ride!
Our little man doesn’t like any sort of simulation things but luckily you could still go round the Wild Artic Exhibit without having to do the helicopter bit.
This was nice to see the Polar bears and the giant walrus. I couldn’t get over the size of that thing!!!





Kade had a go on a ‘win a prize every time’ game but obviously didn’t know this was the case, so was made up when he won a small Manta





Next up we saw ‘Stingray Lagoon’ and Kade & Marcus spent ages watching and touching the rays. I think Kade would have stayed there all day if he could.



We got some coffees, juice and a snack before making our way out. I don’t think we covered half of what SeaWorld had to offer but we were ready to go by this time.

We drove home and chilled out back at the apartment with a couple of beers before heading down to the Turf Grill again for Dinner.
I had Chef’s salad of the day to start with the Honey Minted Lamb again for main.
Marcus had Buffalo chicken to start followed by Steak, mash & asparagus and Kady had Cheeseburger & fries followed by a DIY Ice cream Sundae.

For dessert Marcus and I had (drumroll)……you guessed it! Cheesecake!!!

After we’d eaten, Marc & Kade went swimming while I went back to the apartment.
