Thursday 27th November – Thanksgiving
Today we had a bit of a lie in until around 7.30am. We had a bit of a lazy morning just having breakfast and sorting out washing etc. We all got washed and dressed and around 10am we decided to go for a walk to the clubhouse and pool area at the Regal Palms. Sorry no pictures tho because we forgot to lift the camera and this happened to be the only time we visited!
Going to Florida in Nov/Dec was lovely the weather was just nice, the problem we had though was it was still too chilly for swimming in the morning and we were never back before dark to go in the evening! So unfortunately the kids never got to try out the pool at the resort, but to be honest they never asked so never felt like they missed out on anything!
The pool area is lovely – not quite as big as it looks in the pictures but nice all the same! We had a good nosey around then headed back to the house.
Today’s plan was supposed to be spend the morning at Epcot Future world and then head over to Downtown Disney for the afternoon as we had an ADR booked for Planet Hollywood today. But because we were a bit knackered after the buys couple of days and Jet Lag was setting in we said we would give Epcot a miss and just do Downtown Disney instead.
So we got everything we needed for the day – including the Kids and Granny!LOL into the car and headed on over.
Again the Tom Tom and great signs at Disney guided us well and we parked up opposite Disney Quest.
The boys were desperate to do this just now but we managed to persuade them to just have a good look around first.
The kids spotted the candy shop :
and had to have a Mickey chocolate Bar which were lovely – there was so much to choose from! I picked up Princess Hot Chocolate Selections for my friend Natalie’s (the lady who designed lots of the stuff I made) daughter as I was making up a box of goodies for her kids to post from Disney as a thank-you for all the help she gave me. Natalie had said that Erin loved these hot chocolate powders that colour the drink as well so thought these would go good in her box!
We then got a picture taken on the holiday bench
There are so many lovely little shops in DTD and lots of Sunglasses shops! We spent a good while just going in and out of shops – much to the kids annoyance!LOL
We got some pictures taken by the lovely fountain:
Then carried on walking through the old Pleasure Island area
