Four Go Wild In Florida Previous drivel The Plan and The Flight We get off the plane Discovery Cove "Walk this w..a...yyy!" MGM & Reflections An unusually quiet day- Universal & Jungle Jims Where's the Plan? !! (EPCOT) Day 6 Ahoy, there ! Plan for today Breakfast at H&V , Sea World then Reflections Cruise with Janice and Chris. Changes to plan D&G to use e/e MGM to catch up on R&RC and ToT. Missed from plan to date - E Night(MK), Pleasure Island , Blizzard Beach, Wet n Wild, Downtown Disney, Fantasmic, Off Kilter, British Invasion, Tapestry of Nations. As you see, faithful stranger, our plans are falling behind due to the weather. Not to worry, 9 days left and weve loads of unscheduled time later in the plan to catch up. Today is the first such opportunity as we had planned a lie in before going to MGM for our PS breakfast at H&V. Now, we can take advantage of early entry at MGM for me and the boy to catch up on R&RC and ToT coz he missed them, on Day 3, when he was poorly. Our PS is booked for 8pm and we agreed , last night, that Gary and me would take the car to MGM for e/e at 7.30 while V&J follow on the bus in time to meet us at H&V. Planning see ; to the minute! Alarm set for 7am I thought, as we were all getting tired, we wouldnt force the early entry (compassion, too!) Of course, Im awake at 6.15 and soon have the boy up with me graceful pottering. The girls are drowsy and we let them enjoy their lie in as they dont have to be out for a whole 20 minutes after us. Im really looking forward to today R&RC , of course but H&V will be special ,having enjoyed me first character interaction so much yesterday, me old mate Shamu then finish off meeting Janice and Chris for our cruise and Reflections of Earth. It could only be more perfect if Sunderland got a cup at the end of it! So, pottering complete , and the times 7.05 meticulous as always, Dave nice one. Cmon Gary, well get off. Do you want to get the car keys out of the safe? Kids like to do things dont they? Ahh. Howay, Gary, Hurry up! What dya mean you havent got the key? You had it yesterday. Whend you give it back to me? I dont think so But if I had it, it wouldnt be lost now, would it ? ! Stupid boy! The keys gone ! Its not in our Garys hand , like it was yesterday morning and its not in me sock like it would be if Id got it back from him in me drawer, stupid stranger, not the one Im wearing! Is it any wonder no-one ever asks to share a holiday with us! Several minutes of all-out panic ensue and Valerie even gets out of bed its that serious. Did we find it, did we heck! Well have to get a spare from Reception said I. Theres a $35 dollar charge. I read it on the massive orange keyfob they provide to stop you losing the keys said Julie with absolutely no concern for her safety! $35 for our Gary losing a key! Im not paying that. Its got to be here. Lets trash the room! So we did. Howve you lost it? I demanded. Will you stop saying you gave it back to me! How can that be right? Do I look the type of Dad that loses keys? Shut up, insubordinate stranger! Of course it couldnt be my fault. We need the safe keys to remove the car keys from the safe. We never used the car yesterday , so how can it be my fault ? Easy, see, no link. We only went to Epcot on the bus ; oh and E Night. If Id opened the wrong zip on me bum bag, it could possibly (not that I had it, mind) have slipped out on the rides. (Oooh !) Tell you what, everyone, Dadll make the ultimate sacrifice and go and get a spare key at reception whatever the cost. Moneys no object when me familys holiday is at stake Gary, Ill take it out of your pocket money when we get home! Well, Ill start giving you some then! I skipped down to reception as if I had nothing else to spend me money on and the girl smiled at me as I approached the counter. Me sons lost the bloomin safe key and the whole holidays ruined. I dont know where the $35 is coming from do you do terms? No problem sir, well have someone from Maintenance come over within the hour An hour! No spare behind the desk? Theyre going to have to remove the door and fit a new lock! No wonder its $35 ! But me plan? Me holidays ruined. Im due at H&V at 8am it IS 8am ! What am I going to do ? Fear not, exit bound stranger, Captain FlexiPlan is here ! A man able to juggle his fear of spending money , while rejigging his plan before the pretty receptionists eyes is worth two of a boy who can do neither (no, I dont understand that either). Can you rebook me H&V reservations so I can salvage something from this tragedy me boys brought upon the family? She could. She rang H&V and spoke to a CM there. Yes, he took his daughter on Test Track yesterday and now is trying to blame his son for losing the safe key! Thats fine Sir, Ive rescheduled your family for 9.20 since youre on the bus now- and you can go too, even though this whole fiasco is obviously your fault. So off we headed for MGM, none the worse for our ordeal. On the way, we decided to skip Seaworld because of the late start. It would give us the half day to do MGM. Wed go to SW the day we scheduled for MGM again well oiled machine, you see. Summary Got up early to get to MGM to ride R&RC and ToT before breakfast. Gary lost the safe key so had to reschedule the whole day no problem, glad to help! Off to MGM now, at last!
