Finally got my own way - TR - 11.10.12

Thursday 11th October

We had a little lay in this morning before getting out of bed, dressing and jumping in the car. We were off to Florida Mall! It was very quiet, so we made good use of this! We went to Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, Build-A-Bear, Aeropostale (where we shopped in the sale and saved a fortune!!) and of course, M&Ms World!







I wish I could buy everything in this shop!



After all this shopping, we wandered round to the food court to grab some lunch. We ended up at this place...



It was an interesting mix of food – Tom had ribs and I had chicken, both with fries and noodles. It was actually really nice, just a bit unusual!





We left and drove straight to Blizzard Beach... not many pictures here (sorry!)





We chucked our stuff into a locker, and dumped our towels on a couple of chairs and went straight on Cross Country Creek. This was much more relaxing than the last time we went in 2010 (where it was too cold for a water park, but we braved it!) Then we made the rounds of Runoff Rapids, Snow Stormers, and Tobaggan Racers. It wasn’t too busy, there were a few queues, only one over 30 minutes (Double Dippers – needless to say we skipped that one!), but there was a good atmosphere!

We head back to Coronado Springs before catching the bus to Downtown Disney for tea. I had read about how good a CS Wolfgang Puck Express was, but when we arrived, they were queuing out the door, so we went for Tom’s choice...



Yum! Tom has the Hawaiian BBQ, and I had the All-American, with a macaroni salad side, and a cupcake coronet for pudding, which we took back to the hotel for later (which we never ate!)







After food, we took a slow stroll around the shops, picking out future purchases and trying on hats!









Continued...

We then left Marketplace and took a wander through Pleasure Island and West Side, soaking up the atmosphere and picking out more purchases!

This guy was amazing – he played all sorts of songs on the guitar! Pop, rock, classical, jazz... and it all sounded amazing! Video to follow!



And of course, the crazy statue lady! People were going up and posing with her, and she was so elegant in making them jump! I went up to hold her hand, and she very slowly gripped it and stroked my thumb.



I didn’t have one of these, which makes me a little sad, but I think there might be too many E-numbers in there for me so late at night!



And my sisters favourite, Little Miss-Matched! Otherwise known as the odd sock shop... We both have a 3 ‘pairs’ of odd socks from here, and all our friends always comment and freak at the idea of having odd socks. Only we really understand – it doesn’t have a pair, so it will always be odd!





We wanted a reasonably early start, so we head back at about 11pm, ready for Animal Kingdom in the morning!
