Thanks for the updates We used to like Perkins when they did a salad bar (about 18 years ago I think ) Didn't go for a while as I think they went downhill but had a nice breakfast there the other year. Which one did you go to?

The Perkins was on the 192 near the Disnet turn off. Had a fantastic day at Magic Kingdom. Got there for the train with Mickey on arriving. Emma and I went to do Dumbo, the Carousel and IASW while the boys went to do Splash and the Haunted Mansion. Thunder railroad was down all day so we moved over to do Jungle Cruise and Pirates. More IASW and Philharmagic (my favourite) before lunch at Pinnochios. We then walked down to do Carousel of Progress and they did Space. We caught the train round to Splash but Thunder railroad still down. One more trip to Philharmagic then we left. Much better day today, park was quiet for much off it. Just started to rain as we walked back to the car (couldn't catch a tram we were too close!!). Back at the villa now for a rest before Sizzlers again for dinner. Off shopping tomorrow.

Have had a couple of quiet days. Thursday we went to Florida Mall were the kids enjoyed spending their dollars. We ate at Cracker Barrel again before going to Epcot to see Illuminations which was brilliant as always. Today we've had a lazy morning in the villa whilst I did the ironing. Popped to Celebration for lunch at the Market Street Cafe. First time we've eaten there and it was very good. Downtown Disney next to buy a few pressies. Tonight Pizza Hut then off to Epcot tomorrow.

Been back to Eocot this morning. Straight on Soaring' again then we booked the Behind the seeds tour. None of us are really gardeners but both kids are scientists( my on Phil is doing a Chemistry Phd at Durham and my daughter did Biolology at A level). It was really interesting learning a little more about how they use different methods of growing their crops. And we got to release Ladybugs! It is very hot today and not much cloud so after lunch we came back to the villa for a rest and a swim. Probably off to TGI'S again this evening and Animal Kingdom tomorrow. Thanks for reading.

Sounds like you are all having a fab time.

One day I'd like to do the behind seeds tour but will wait until kids older. People think I'm mad washing and ironing on holiday but I do it as it makes the chore much easier when I get back. Also love the smell of tide

Another beautiful day, sunny with just a few clouds. Animal Kingdom again and we went straight on Safari! The jeeps were delayed leaving the station though, apparently there were animals on the road!! We saw lots of giraffes but not many elephants. But the lion was the best. He actually came down off his rock to growl at a rhino. He was beautiful. Over to Everest then to Dino Land were the kids went on primeval whirl the they all went on Dinosaur. Off to the Lion King where we were elephants. Lunch at Pizzafari before shopping then back to the villa for a swim. Back to Crackerbarrel for dinner, might try the one on the 27. Hollywood studios tomorrow, hope it's quieter than last week. Animal Kingdom was not too busy.

Monday we went back to Hollywood Studios. Had a much better day. Fast passed Toy Story Mania and rode it as well, only queued for about 15 mins. They then all went on Rock n' Roller Coaster then DH did Tower of Terror. Over to Star Tours. No queue here so 2 trips to the stars, hubby was rebel spy on 2nd trip. Did the Muppets before returning to TSM. Quick lunch then back to the villa for a rest and swim. We then went to Magic Kingdom for our dinner at The Plaza. Really good and not too expensive. We then did all the kiddy rides, Philharmagic, Small World and fast passed Peter Pan. Saw a bit of the parade then went on Winnie the Pooh. Managed to leave before the fireworks, we were all tired! Tuesday morning had a bit of a Lie in then went to Epcot. Had lunch at the fish and chip shop. Then Canada and Soarin. Bit of shopping then home. Another beautiful day. Apart from Isaac the weather has been fantastic. Off to Applebee's again tonight. It's easy as its next door!! Wednesday Magic Kingdom again. Hope thunder railroad is running!

So Magic Kingdom today and it was really quiet We went on Peter Pan on our way round to Splash. Poor Donald had no one with him so me and my DD had a picture with him. Big Thunder railroad was running so we went on. Back seats and they let us go round twice. They all went on Splash and Pirates then Emma and I did the Carpets ride. Jungle Cruise next then up to Philharmagic. The only queue we saw was when we got off IASW!! We had lunch then DD and DH went on Buzz before we decided to come back to the villa for rest and swimming. Off out for dinner later, no idea where. Last day tomorrow so will have to pack at some point
