    So second to last day.

    Blizzard Beach done in one and a half hours. Check.

    Back to hotel and straight off to Hollywood Studios. Done in two hours. Check.

    Included break at the Writers Cafe with some seriously large cinnamon rolls:

    Two more vinylmation figures bought. Both very happy as Jeff got Darth Vader and I got Obi Wan Kinobi.

    More powerful than you can possibly imagine..."

    Silly hats of the day:

    And off to DTD via Saratoga Springs. In the rain. Again.

    Quick dash through the shops, bought some new socks as current ones wet through. Quick stop at Lego.

    And off to Portobello for early dinner. Not too bad food wise.

    Mild hilarity at item on menu: "ladyfingers". Wonder if it goes well with fufu??! ;)

    Dinner done and off to MK for final fireworks of the trip :( Beaten by Jeff for the first time at Buzz Lightyear. Dagnammit.

    All done and back to hotel for farewell cocktails.

    And this morning:

    Breakfast at Crystal Palace. Farewell to MK. Got chatting to another gay couple on the bus back who could sign. Apparently their 27th time here. Though they think being here for two weeks like us is far too long??!!

    And now packed, back in jeans, checked out and having a coffee waiting for transportation back to the airport.

    Bye WDW! It's been fun! :yes:

    Haha. Course not. But we got caught in the middle of a thunderstorm between parks so had to bin the ones we were wearing for some nice dry ones. :)

    Thank you both so much for sharing your vacation! I appreciated it. Got to live vicareously through your exploits, awaiting our next trip back (may not be much longer - DW's Audi lost it water pump to the tune of $1500 + so on the Disney Visa it goes!).

    Have a safe trip back home.

    I bought a baseball cap. Does that count?

    We are now at the airport. There were seats available in premium economy at a reasonable rate so we have upgraded. Whoop

    Duty free shopping time :)

    We did and it went extremely fast! Could not believe that we are actually sitting at Orlando International Airport. It really feel as if we just only arrived!

    So. Duty free done. In about a minute and a half because they've downsized it to just a few shelves.

    Instead we had a coffee at Starbucks and a massage at the little spa centre. While waiting we were given a free 20 minutes on the massage chair, which I'm now going to marry as it was bliss!

    Have now wandered over to the gate area and it looks like we have Hot Lips again for the return journey. Whoop! :)

    Plane currently delayed by half hour grr.

    See you the other side :)

    Your trippies have been absolutely brilliant :D There is no way I can keep up with that :lol:

    Sorry about today, I don't travel very well and it usually takes me a couple of days to get over it.

    There's always the trip to Cardiff we have next year :wink: :D

    Back off Johnie that chair's all mine mine mine! :)

    We have landed. Great flight, good time made, even managed a few hours sleep so we are not complete zombies on arrival.

    Now a couple of trains to catch. Should be home in about 4 hours... (sigh).

    Thoroughly enjoyed your trip reports. The hat pictures were great and it sounds like you had a great time. Now about that massage chair. You obviously cannot marry it without first divorcing Jeff and then where would all the fun be on future trips. You can't take the massage chair to the park with you.

    Who needs fun in the park when I can just stay at home with the chair. Perhaps I can be polygamous, like certain religious type people (allegedly)...?

    On the train home. Should arrive in about an hour or so.

    Can anyone spot Mickey?
