Shop Till We Drop (Day 8)

16 11 2008

Yesterday we started off by going to WonderWorks, a science-y hands-on place, followed by laser tag (which I won) and then on to the shops. We had chili-cheese fries at Johnny Rockets and a milkshake for lunch. Then we went to Mall at Millenia where, for the first time ever, I went into an Apple Store and bought something! I got a new pair of headphones for my iPod Touch which have an in-built microphone. We came back to the villa from a swim, then headed back out to Downtown Disney, followed by Walmart. We got home at about 11.


Splish Splash Splosh (Day 7)

16 11 2008

On day 7, we went to SeaWorld. We rode the Kraken, went on the Polar Express, fed sealions, fed dolphins, saw Shamu the killer whale and ate a not ice cream (Stupid iPod Touch correction system!) big ice cream.

Coaster Overload (Day 6)

16 11 2008

The day after Magic Kingdom we drove up to Tampa to go to Busch Gardens, which took an hour. There are lots of big coasters (to ride, not for a giant coffee mug!) which Harry decided to ride about 50 times each. There was an inverted coaster we started with, then a greenish one, followed by Sheikra. What is Sheikra? A huge red rollercoaster which climbs a big hill before hanging over and dropping down a completely vertical drop! It then loops for a bit before falling down another vertical drop! Sound scary? Harry rode it 5 times, twice before lunch and three times after. I did it four times.

Three Days Ago (Day 5)

16 11 2008

The other day we went to Magic Kingdom. The monorail was “delayed” so we got a ferry to the park. During the day, we caught Stitch, went to a monster comedy show, flew with Buzz Lightyear, rode Space Mountain and rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. We saw the Dreams Come True parade, then looked round the shop before coming home on the monorail. We stayed home with Nanny & Grandad and played mini golf.

Splash, Vroom (Day 4)

12 11 2008

Today we went to Aquatica, the water park from SeaWorld. There were lots of slides to go down and the water was very warm – like being in a bath!
After finishing at the water park at 4:30 we went to Fun Spot and got wristbands so that we could have unlimited rides on the four go kart tracks and the other rides such as the bumper boats and the bumper cars. So today was a fun day!

Back A Day (Day 3)

11 11 2008

Yesterday was back to a Disney day. We went to Epcot with Nanny & Grandad and stated there from 9 ’til 9:30 (am to pm, we weren’t there for half an hour!). We travelled through time in a giant golf ball, saw technolgy from the future, went for a swim with Nemo, flew to Mars on a shuttle and then to California on a hang glider. After that we saw the future of farming before going to Mexico, Norway, China, Germany and Italy. We went to IHOP for dinner and then back to Epcot to see the fireworks.

Yesterday (Day Two)

10 11 2008

Yesterday wasn’t a Disney day. Instead we went to Universal Studios and stayed there for the day. We evaded being killed by a mummy’s curse, being killed in a tornado and being killed by a shark. Bit of a disaster filled time, eh? Then we starred in a disaster movie by being extras and shot some aliens with J from Men In Black. I had a hot dog for lunch and after that we took a bike ride with ET. We did a tad of shopping and bought a Make-Your-Own Spongebob for Harry, then left the park and went to Islands of Adventure where I rode with the Incredible Hulk before going home and going back out with Nanny and Grandad to Olive Garden for dinner, which I ended up bringing back in a box. It’s becoming a trend!
