    So far we've been to the Luau, hoop dee doo, florida mall, magic kingdom extra magic hours...

    The weather is still very c c c cold though. Last night for EMH it was touching on freezing point. Supposed to go back up to 70s for the weekend, then down to 50s again next week. It's weird to see people walking around in blankets and huge coats.

    The Luau is often canceled for such conditions but surprisingly went ahead. However, it was cut very short. From the time we sat down to the time we got up to leave, exactly one hour :/ hardly any interaction with the audience, lots of bits cut out. It may have been better to cancel it to be honest.

    The hoop dee doo was as good as ever :D

    Not sure what's on the agenda today yet. Hope all is well with you all, what am I missing back home?

    ooo I forgot. We tried the golden corral for the first time every yesterday. I know it may not be the poshest location in the world :lol: but I gasped when I walked in and saw the choice available in the buffet. Seriously amazing and all piping hot the whole time.

    We went to the vineland road one recommended by Tink. Spotlessly clean, good service and $7.99 per person which just doesn't compute given the range of food included.

    Afterwards, feeling full, we thought well we may as well walk to the premium outlet mall because it can't be far can it? hmmmm that was possibly a mistake :lol: anyway it was a pleasant enough walk in this weather but I wouldn't want to do it in normal Orlando heat.

    You WALKED to Premium? Ohforheaven'ssake!!!! :nono: That is NOT a good road to be walking along!

    Golden Corral has an amazing array don't they? LOL. Happy to hear that it was nice for you. They aren't always (and some of them, not at all).

    Speaking of freezing it's wicked cold here right now! :eek: What's up with THAT? Sheesh.

    I'm ready for at least 70 to return and stay (and yes, I mean into the night)!

    Take care now and continue to have a wonderful time!

    View from the hotel window at the Bay Lake Towers. Honestly, I could just stay here for ever at the window gazing out

    except I'm tired this morning through spending most of the night watching the castle change colours and the buses coming and going :lol:

    Seriously awesome view though. With the frequent deals on bay lake tower rooms MK view, it really is something of a bargain i think.

    oh one more thing, we're flying home tomorrow soooo if everyone can blow the snow away from manchester airport please. Ideally it would snow everywhere except manchester airport and the m6/m58 so I can get home. That way I'd get the nice white scenery without being stuck anywhere :lol:

    At the moment Keith I don`t think there is any snow at Manchester...certainly here it is as clear as a bell.
    Snow is forecast though but it`s anyone`s guess how far south it will travel.
    Safe flight home, snow or no snow.
