    Up at stupid o'clock to get the coach to do this:

    First encounter of the day, great timing and spent the rest of the day swimming with the fish, waving at sharks and trying to devise a cunning plan in which I can smuggle an otter out of the park, into my bag on the plane and take it home.

    Officially THE cutest things on the planet!

    Arrived at feeding time to see them squabbling over the clams and creating a fuss when they weren't fed quickly enough. Bless.

    Also did the aviary and mobbed by a number of birds that sat on our arms, hands and heads. Sometimes at the same time. Sweet. But... Ouch!

    Knackered.com we got back to hotel for about 4.30, changed and then dinner in DTD at Wolfgang Express. Nice but bland. Next time we will be having the pizzas as they looked lovely. Half tempted to swoop over to the table next to ours shouting "mine mine mine" and steal their pizza but there were more of them than us and I didn't fancy my chances.

    Shopping at DTD. Bought a few things including some nice art work.
    Made the mistake of going to World of Disney ... The largest Disney store in the world. Also the busiest shop on the planet. Cue the Grumpy shopper alert (me).

    And then back to hotel.

    Anecdote from Epcot yesterday while waiting for illuminations. Asked by an American woman where I bought the beers we were drinking. Replied in my best received pronunciation, boarding school accent that it was from a stall 50 metres on the right hand side, just behind the shop. To which I got the reply "I'm sorry, I only understood the word 'metres', and we don't use those here".

    Ok .......

    A lad who my DH shared a student house with once smuggled a penquin out of a zoo. He took it back to their student digs and put in the bath. After a couple of hours he felt guilty so he smuggled it back again. Don't know which zoo it was, but obviously big on security.
