Key West to Old Key West Day 16

Key West to Old Key West Day 16
Monday 26th November
We were at the OKW bus stop by 9.00 but we had to wait for ages for the bus to Epcot. There were buses for everywhere else before the Epcot one arrived and when it did we only just managed to get on as it was very nearly full.
When we arrived at Epcot Theresa was not very impressed with the lady on the other side of the bag check area. This is her “ you’ve been in the queue for ten minutes and you really didn’t think it would have been a good idea to have opened your bag ready for the guard to check it” look.


We took a few pictures of the flower beds in front of Spaceship Earth and we were going to go on the ride but the queue was very long so we headed around to Soarin’ to get some fast passes.



We went on Finding Nemo and got a new Mine Mine Mine T shirt for Gary before our fast pass time came up for Soarin’. We got some more fast passes when we came off, for later in the day.

We walked around world showcase and got a turkey club sandwich to share from Kringla bakery in Norway, I followed it with an apple Danish and Theresa had school bread.


We rode Maelstrom and then went to see if Spaceship Earth was still busy, it was so we went back to the World Showcase and went to see The Three Caballero’s in Mexico.

We saw Mr. & Mrs. Claus and got a couple of pokemon plush toys for our nephew Kieran for Christmas.

We exited Epcot at the International Gateway and headed to Beaches and Cream for a No Way Jose. This has become a firm favourite of ours and we try to visit Beaches on our Epcot day. It makes a nice break in the day.




We headed back into the park and out the front gate so we could ride the monorail so we could get some pictures as we came around the loop on our way back to the park.


After this we used our second fast pass for Soarin’ and met a really nice couple from Germany and a mother and daughter from Texas and had a really nice chat with them.

We had sweet and sour chicken and Mongolian beef for dinner in the Sunshine Seasons food court before walking around World Showcase to see Neil Patrick Harris as the narrator for the Candlelight Processional.




We were too tired to hang around for Illuminations so we headed toward the exit and did Spaceship Earth on our way out as it was a walk on at that time of day.

We walked to the OKW bus stop and waited for about 20 mins for the bus back to the resort. The drive to the resort was very quick but the stops around the resort itself took longer than the drive back!

We considered going for a drink but decided against it as we had a lot of packing to do. Good job we didn’t as it took ages to pack and we had to keep swapping stuff about to try to get all the bags down to 23kgs. One was just over. I blamed it on Matts pants. Lol.

That security guard was a tad rude. I would love to go to beaches and cream somewhere we have never tried

Hi Andrea, that was Theresa's (look) reaction to the person opposite for not having her bag open ready, not the security guard.
