    Firstly I apologise for not posting sooner but I will get cracking & try to get my trip report finished asap. :)


    The cast:
    Me – Disney obsessed, Shopaholic & extremely clumsy! :rolleyes:
    Lee (DH) – aka the Mad Hatter….


    18th September 2009 = Day 11


    We didn’t set the alarm this morning & I am ashamed to day we didn’t wake up until 9.45am!!!! I think the combination of the pain killers I was taking & the really comfy bed was the reason. However today was a chill out day so it didn’t matter. I sent my mum a text as she was taking one of my dogs to the vets this morning for her fortnightly injection and I wanted to check that all was ok with her, thankfully it was. :goodvibes


    I was getting slightly concerned about the amount of shopping I had bought & how we would get it home considering I had already filled one case with goodies and had tons more so whilst Lee was laying in bed watching tv I decided to pack case number 2....I now have two cases packed to the brim, one was spot on the 32kg limit & the other was over!!! :eek: Thankfully we had 4 cases in total but I wanted to save as much room as possible as I knew I would want to buy lots of DCL souvenirs so I decided to leave it for now & move stuff around to spread the weight evenly on the last day.


    Afterwards we showered and decided to play some mini golf so we headed over to Winter Summerland.

    We did the Summer course first.

    Followed by the Winter course.

    Lee won both games…..no surprises there as he always wins even if he does give me lots of chances. :lmao: At one point he even felt so sorry for me he decided to give me even more chance by using the putter as a cue! :rotfl2:

    Although I did deduct some of his points for trying to put me off on this hole….:rolleyes:

    It was a really hot humid day so we sat down for a drink in the shade afterwards, then had to drop the car back to the Car Care Center which was very quick, we got the Alamo bus which took us back to Old Key West.


    Once we got back to the room we realised we hadn’t had anything to eat, it was about 2pm so we shared some crisps whilst we cooled off in the air conditioned room then freshened up and got the boat from OKW to DTD. We headed straight to Earl Of Sandwich. :) Lee had The Original & I had the Best BLT, we both had Cherry Coke & rather than dessert we took some crisps for later = 2 x Counter service credits (In my opinion the best use of a counter service credit. So Yummy! ::yes::)


    What was I saying earlier about running out of room well next stop was (again!)……;)

    I couldn’t help myself and bought a few more tree decorations & a Mickey Sorcerer stocking. :woohoo: We then caught the boat from Marketplace up to Westside, I must admit that until this trip I didn’t even know they did this but was certainly grateful for it as my ankle was hurting.


    We had a little time to spare so checked out the La Nouba shop, where Lee spotted a really lovely casual handbag that I fell in love with so he bought for me. :hug: We went upstairs to the La Nouba entrance and took a few photos.

    We got a couple of drinks then went in and took our seats for the show. I had managed several months earlier to get some great seats in the middle section, it also turned out that we had one spare seat either side of us! Result! :thumbsup2


    We first saw La Nouba back in September 2006 and we enjoyed it just as much this time round, our favourite once again were the little diablo girls, they are so young and very sweet, closely followed by the guys on the trampolines at the end. If you haven’t seen it before then I highly recommend it.


    After the show we walked back down to Pleasure Island and got the boat back to OKW. We stopped off at Goods To Go for a little snack, Lee had Chicken Noodle Soup & a wild berry slushie, I had a hotdog & some onion rings. We popped into the store to use some of our snack credits as we had 16 left!!!!! We got some candy floss and chocolate for Lee.


    Once we returned to the room we got showered and watched tv & used the internet for a while.


    Coming up: Day 12 = Hollywood Studio’s & Brown Derby

    I look forward to your next installment :thumbsup2

    :lmao: Nope I am terrible. :blush:

    It's next door to Blizzard Beach. You can get one of the resort buses to BB then walk over if Tony isn't driving. :thumbsup2

    There is also another one at the Swan/Dolphin resorts. I think the girls would prefer the themeing of Winter Summerland though.



    :rotfl2: Lots!!! Too much if you were to ask my husband!

    I love the fantasia one too, we did that aswell. Hope we can fit in a game in June. :thumbsup2



    :rotfl2: You better fill your cases up then madam or I will be pinching your empty space, i've just added bolt cutters to my packing list so I can get past your security measures!!! :lmao: I always dump all the toilettries etc anyway but this trip I even ditched some clothes to fetch back all my shopping & I still had 4 over weight cases & 4 hand luggage between two of us! :rotfl2: I am surprised we have never been stopped at customs. :rotfl:
