We all woke up gradually this morning. I woke about 7am, DS started stirring about 7.30 but played happily and quietly in his pack and play, Dd and DH woke up at 8am. While discussing our plans for the day we decided that magic kingdom was out and I cancelled our fastpasses and made some for Epcot instead. I suggested we go for breakfast at the yacht club as i had heard good things about ale and compass. I looked on my Disney experience and got us a reservation for 9.40am which worked really well by the time we got ready and made our way over there.
We checked in and were seated about 10 minutes later. Our server explained the menu to us we could either order a la Carte or do the buffet option for $23 for adults, $13 for children and that included one entree and our drinks. This is fantastic value so we went with the buffet option.



We ordered drinks, Diet Coke for me, apple juice got Dd and coffee for DH and then went and helped ourselves to the buffet.



There was a huge selection which was very impressive! There were seasonal fruits, yoghurt, granola, pastries, muffins, biscuits and crazy, oatmeal, cheeses and ham Smoked salmon, bagels.






For our entrees I had the eggs Benedict which was 2 poached eggs on a English muffin with bbq pork loin, tomato and hollandaise sauce. It was served with breakfast potatoes. This was delicious! The breakfast potatoes had pieces of sweet potato in them and were really good! The eggs were cooked perfectly and there was the ideal amount of sauce with them.



DH had the dark chocolate waffles, he absolutely loved these. He was stuffed by the end but didn’t want any to go to waste as they were so delicious. I tried some and the waffle and cream was delicious, I’m not a fan of cherry really but together it was really nice.



Dd had the kids blueberry pancakes which were absolutely delicious, I finished these off for her as even though I was beyond stuffed these were the nicest pancakes I’ve ever tasted and I couldn’t let them go to waste. They were served with a bottle of syrup and some butter and she got a side of frozen yoghurt covered fruit.



Our total after the dvc 10% discount was taken off was $56 and it was an absolute bargain for the quality of the food. We were all blown away by this meal and it is a total hidden gem.



I’d made some fastpasses earlier for Epcot so after breakfast we made our way through the international gateway and into Epcot, our first stop was test track for a rider switch with our fastpass.



Next as it was not too hot we decided it would be a good opportunity to wander around the world showcase and have a few drinks. We headed round in a clockwise direction and checked out the first few offerings in Mexico, Norway, China and Germany but nothing struck our fancy. Our first beverage was had in Italy where I had a glass of Pinot Grigio and DH had a Chianti. This came to $16 for them both and we sat in the Italy pavilion enjoying them in the sun and people watching.









Next we continued along to America, while walking through we spotted a family with some great looking slushy cocktails so we asked them where they got them from and they pointed us in the direction of the shaved ice counter in Japan. We made our way there where DH and I both had an alcoholic coconut and pineapple slush which were $9 each and absolutely delicious, they tasted just like Malibu and pineapple and lasted for ages, they were much bigger than they looked.
Dd got a cherry flavoured shaved ice and loved this, she’s got an obsession with cherry flavour at the moment.



Next we walked in through Morocco and stopped on France where more wine was on the cards. DH had a Bordeaux and I had a rose, they were both very nice and were $8.50 each.



By now we were starting to get hungry so headed inside to boulangerie patisserie les halles where the queue was much smaller than the other day. We got a few things to share here.
A quiche loraine served warm which was absolutely delicious! It was really gooey and soft.



A croque Monsieur also served warm which was really good and had plenty of cheese and ham.



A bowl of lobster bisque which lovely but didn’t have much lobster in.



We got a couple of desserts to share too, a crime brûlée which has a lovely crisp top and no hint of a burnt taste, this was my favourite!



And my usual favourite from here the duo au chocolate which is 2 chocolate mousses on a chocolate cake base covered in chocolate ganache. This was nice but the crime brûlée was the winner.



Total came to $33.82 which wasn’t too bad as it was all really delicious and enough for the 3 of us.



Next we had a fastpass for mission space, I wasn’t interested in doing this so Dd and DH went on and we didn’t bother with rider switch. They did the orange version for the first time for Dd and she absolutely loved it! Crazy girl, even the green makes me feel abit ill.
While they were on mission space I picked up a fastpass for spaceship earth. As this is Dds favourite ride and is closing soon for a lobg refurb I felt we had to get as many rides in as possible.



After spaceship earth we made our way back to beach club and picked up our refillable mugs and decided to continue our drinking with a couple of our own drinks in our mugs while having a wander around the boardwalk. We stopped and watched the sideshows which we love and find mesmerising. One guy was juggling with knives while standing on a rolling board!



DH was starting to flag and with moonlight magic in mind tomorrow night we decided to head back to the room for a relatively early night for him. Dd and I weren’t tired so we decided to head back out for an hour and she decided the boardwalk was her place of choice to head. We stopped at the pizza window and got a meatball sub with chips to share, this was pretty good! Plenty of big meatballs and sauce and mozzarella, it took a while to be ready though. We ordered and paid and were given a buzzer which took 15 minutes to go off!



After our shared sub we wandered next door to ample hills for some ice cream. There was quite the queue but it didn’t take too long to get served. Dd and I went for the ice cream flight which is 6 small scoops of any 6 flavours of ice cream of your choice. This cost $9.99 and was fantastic value for the amount we got! It was more than enough to share between 2 of us. We chose 3 of the flavours each, Dd went for milk and cream cookies, strawberries & cream and cotton candy. I chose ooey gooey butter cake, pb wins the cup and butter pecan brittle. All 3 that I picked were excellent and the strawberries and cream. We struggled to pick a favourite but probably the butter pecan brittle. After our ice cream we were feeling slightly chilly so we walked back to the beach club and had a sit in the lobby for a while before bed. Dd watched the short cartoons on the tv and I just people watched. I absolutely love this resort lobby it smells amazing and had such a calm and lovely atmosphere.


Eat and Play Card


I managed a slight lie in until 7.30am, we still had loads to pack and load into the car before check out at 10 am. It was an absolute mission to make everything fit as we had so much stuff/food we were still needing at beach club, but we managed! We left mystic dunes at 9.48am and we’re pulling into the beach club 8 minutes later. We left all of our stuff in the car except for our refillable mugs from animal kingdom and The bag of cakes we bought using snack credits the other night. We popped along to the beach club marketplace and got a coffee in our mugs for DH and I and Dd had a cherry Coke Zero. We took them over to the small sitting area in the beach club villa building and had coffee and cupcakes for breakfast.



My dulce tres leche cupcake was amazing but really sickly. The inside was filled with caramel and the chocolate on top had salted caramel inside and tasted devine!



Dd had a chocolate strawberry cake. She loved this but it was a bit too big for her and DH had to help her finish it.



DH had a cookies and cream monorail cupcake. This was cookies and cream topping, with a white chocolate monorail and an Oreo on top. We thoroughly enjoyed our cake breakfast and while sat eating the message came through that our room was ready! As per our request we had a room on the bottom floor close to the elevator and utterly thrilled it was ready by 10.20am.



After we’d finished eating we made our way along to our room and a manager was actually inside checking everything was ok and quality assuring the cleaning. She gave us a card with her number on and said not to hesitate to contact her if we needed anything or had any problems, we though that was a really lovely touch.



The room is beautiful just very small compared to the space we’ve been used to at mystic dunes, we have a patio area which we feel is preferable to a balcony as I’m happy to let Dd sit outside on the patio but wouldn’t let her do that on the balcony.



While DH and Dd unpacked the things we need for the next 7 days, DS had a nap and when he finally awoke we got changed and headed for the pool. We absolutely love stormalong bay. The slide is fab, there’s a lazy river with rings, lots of different areas to the pool and a sandy beach area for building sandcastles. Not to mention a mug refill station right by the pool and beaches and cream right there too.



We spent about an hour at the pool but it was abit too cold with the breeze to stay any longer. We went back to the room and got changed and headed out to Epcot to get some lunch.



The international gateway is infinitely busier than last time we were here, the skyliner station and construction at Epcot’s main entrance seem to mean that more people are using this a trance to Epcot. When we were finally through bag check we made our way to France to get some lunch. The queue in the boulangerie patisserie were epic and we decided we weren’t waiting in that, so we made a swift exit from Epcot and walked round to the boardwalk and tried the boardwalk bakery instead.
DH and I both got the turkey, stuffing and cranberry mayonnaise sandwich, this came with a packet of Crisps and cost $9.99. It was similar to the holiday turkey sandwich from earl of sandwich. It was pretty good, also served warm but the earl does it better.



Dd got the kids turkey sandwich which came with applesauce, raw carrots and apple juice. She enjoyed this and it wasn’t bad value for $6.39.



After we were suitably filled from our late lunch we got the skyliner over to riviera resort. This was a first for us on two counts, firstly we had never been in the skyliner and secondly we had never seen riviera resort since it opened. The skyliner was pretty awesome, I thought I might be abit scared not being a fan of heights but it felt very safe and quite enclosed. There’s no air conditioning but it is cooled by vent which allow moving air in and is very effective in temperature of mid 20s like today.



We arrived at riviera and had a look round, I was impressed by some of the outside amenities and theming but there was something about it which didn’t feel as authentic or classy as other resorts.



After a wander round and a look in the shop we walked along to Caribbean beach resort, this is another resort we have never been to. It’s pretty large and the main lobby/pool/restaurants looked lovely. We had a walk right round the lake and back to riviera where we boarded the skyliner back to Caribbean beach where we had to disembark before transferring to the skyliner that went straight to Hollywood studios.



This was a very quick portion of the journey and took about 5 minutes. All in all it was a nice way to travel but a really round about way of getting from beach club to Hollywood studios.



When we arrived we first headed to the baby centre to change DS. This is the smallest of all the baby centres. It is locates inside guest services abd could probably fit 3 families maximum in there at a time. After DS was sorted we made our way to toy storage Mania for a fastpass I had managed to pick up. Dd and I went together this time and DS sat on DH’s knee, somehow DH managed to win!
We had a walk through the rest of toy story land and down into galaxys edge. We were looking for somewhere to get some food but none of the offering in Star Wars land took our fancy so instead we walked through and out to backlot express.
DH had the 1/3lb Angus bacon cheeseburger which he said was pretty dried out like it had been sat for a while. He said it needed a lot of tomorrow sauce to be rescued. This was $10.99 and came with fries.



I had the chicken garlic-ranch club. This was ok, it consisted of a chicken breast in a bun with pepper jack cheese, garic ranch sauce, lettuce and tomato. It was also $10.99, came with fries and probably better than what DH got.



Dd had the kids pb&j uncrustables, we seem to have a new love of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so this was perfect. It came with fries, a cookie and an apple juice for $6.19. We often find kids meals are really great value around Disney.



After we were fed we made our way to our fastpass for tower of terror. Now this is a ride that Dd wasn’t really sure of doing again. She last went on it when she was 4 and in hindsight although she was tall enough she was probably abit young and it scared her abit. She decided she would give it a go knowing that there was a chicken exit if she needed it. We set up rider switch on the off chance she would love it and wanted to go again. So DH and Dd went and did ToT, she came off and was pleased she had done it but didn’t want to do it again so I went on it on my own.



Tonight was extra magic hours at Hollywood studios and by now fantastic was on and the park had started to clear out and was quite quiet. We were torn whether to watch the Star Wars fireworks or not as we’ve seen them before and although good we didn’t really kind of we didn’t catch them. We made our way round to galaxys edge instead to see what it looked like at night time. On the way we called in to see Olaf as there was no queue. The photographer here was amazing with DS and was trying really hard to get him to Laugh and smile and pose. When we came out we #castcomplimented him on Twitter.
We carried on our walk round to galaxys edge and it looked amazing at night time, really atmospheric and it was great as it was so quiet you could really see the theming and have a good look in the shops. DH was undecided whether to get a light saber and Dd was wanting to build a droid but we ended up skipping both this time. It was starting to get quite chilly and we weren’t dressed for the cooler temperature now so we made the decision to head back to beach club just as the fireworks were starting.



We thought it would be a good time as people would hopefully stay and watch the fireworks and there wouldn’t be much of a queue for the skyliner and we were right, we walked straight onto it and made the short journey to Caribbean beach and even there where we had to switch loops there was no queue. The views over Walt Disney world at nighttime we’re great and you could see loads. When we arrived at Epcot The fireworks had not long finished and the queue for the skyliner was huge! We said we wouldn’t like to be reliant on the skyliner for transportation at busy times but it’s a great way to get about when it’s quiet.
We arrived back at beach club and got some drinks in our refillable mugs and then it was straight to sleep as we were all shattered.



This morning we were woken by our alarms at 6.15am, typical that DS seemed to fancy a lie in this morning as he was still asleep. We double checked had everything, got ourselves dressed, had a coffee and set off up the I4 for discovery cove. We arrived about 7.30am and the car park was deserted! We figured today would be quiet as the forecast was still quite cool at 19 degrees for today. We got checked in and they offered us the option to switch to another day due to the cooler temperatures. We declined the offer as we figured it would be quieter in cooler weather and DS would cope better outside all day. We were assigned our dolphin swim times, DH and Dd were together at 11.40am and I was in a later group at 1.20pm.



We were directed to walk through the park and help ourself to breakfast. There was a simple selection of cooked items which were scrambled eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, French toast and biscuits. There was also fruit, pastries and cereal to help yourself to.












After a quick breakfast we made our was to guest services where we switched our pushchair for a sand buggy, these were like mini moon buggies and really easy to push and worked well on sand.
It was then time to get kitted out in our wetsuits. This was my least favourite thing about the day, they were cold and damp when you first put them on and it was an absolute mission to get them on and off.



Once all sorted we made our way first of all to the bird aviary. I had read it was best to go here first think while the birds are still hungry as after an hour or so the birds have had their fill of unlimited food and generally not interested in coming to feed off your hands.



This was a lovely experience and even Dd enjoyed having the birds land on her arm and eat out of the pots. DH ended up with a carnivorous bird that they’d just given a dead mouse to eat land on his shoulder and eat the dead mouse off him!






After the burst aviary we walked round to the lagoon pool with the stingrays and fishes for DH and Dd to do some snorkelling. I found a lovely sun lounger in the sun and enjoyed a bud light lime while DS had a sleep in his massive pram.



By now it wasn’t long until DH and DD’s swim time, they headed over to starfish cabana to meet for their dolphin experience. I found a sun lounger by the dolphin lagoon and sat and watched them. This was an amazing thing to watch and experience, I was really unsure whether Dd would actually participate as she had been reluctant to stroke the rays at seaworld last week but she did everything! She had her photo taken kissing and hugging the dolphin and participated in the dolphin swim. The whole experience took about 40 minutes and Dd was absolutely buzzing when she came out. We wandered over to check out their photos and all of the ones of Dd were wonderful I struggled to pick a couple.



After a quick restroom stop and a cookie from one of the stands it was time for my dolphin swim. I was in a small group of 6, the other 5 being a family together who adopted me, haha. It was a lovely experience being so close to the dolphins, we had 3 different dolphins throughout our session and one of ours loved showing off! The park was so quiet and this was really evident in the size of the groups for the dolphin experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the dolphin swim but it’s not something I feel I would need to do again. However Dd loved it so much I could see her wanting to come back and it would be a great experience to be in the same group as her to see her up close with with dolphins.



After we had checked out the photos from my session we made a selection of 4 and DH got a mouse mat of one of his photos and we placed our order to pick up and pay for at the end of the day at the park entrance.
Dd and dh weren’t feeling too hungry by this point but I was so I made my way to the lunch canteen and they went off to spend some time in the lazy river.
For lunch I had a pulled pork sandwich with waffle fries and some Ceaser salad and a piece of chocolate cake, the food was fine, nothing stand out just did the job.



After my very quick lunch I made my way round to near the bird aviary where we had arranged to meet after DH and Dd came out of the lazy river. A whole circuit of the lazy river look 30 minutes so I sat and enjoyed another ice cold bud light lime while DS had another sleep. The weather was absolutely perfect for him today, it was warm enough that he happily sat in the pram with the sunshade pulled over but not too warm I was worried about us being outside all day.






DH and Dd came off the lazy river and decided they would like to go again so I replaced my refreshing beer with a new one and sat enjoying the surroundings and people watching while they swam some more.



After their second lap of the lazy river it was after 4pm and with not too long left before the park would be starting to close we headed back over to the lagoon pool and DH and Dd did some more snorkelling and looking at the fishes. Dd got out about 20 minutes before the end and DH enjoyed sometime to himself to go snorkelling in the deeper bits. At 5pm they called for everyone to exit the water and we made our way to the changing rooms to get showered and dressed. One our way out we stopped by the photo desk and picked up our photo package, the total cost of our 4 prints and mouse at came to $118. You can see how they make their money here, people were spending an absolute fortune on photo packages. We made our way to the park exit where our pram was waiting for us to pick up, we gave back our moon buggy and headed for the car. The car park was almost empty by this point but at no point today had we felt there were any crowds, it had definitely been a perfect day for discovery cove. I had been a little worried the weather would be too cold but it ended up being absolutely perfect and coming here in the high temperature we normally experience would have been too much for DS and we would have needed to take shelter inside for much of the day.
Dd absolutely loved the whole day and says she would really like to come back again sometime. She is such a water baby loving swimming and pools so this was an ideal for her.



We drove down the I4 to get back to mystic dunes and decided on the at we would stop at sweet tomatoes for dinner. I thought we’d go to the one on the 192 but DH had other ideas and left the I4 at crossroads and we went to the one there instead. Being Saturday night it was really busy but we didn’t have too much of a queue and found a seat easily. I didn’t managed to get any photos of our food as after a long day at discovery cove taking endless photos my battery on my phone had died and I’d used my power bar too!
After we were suitably fed we made the drive home and began the endless task of packing up all of our belongings. Tomorrow we are moving to beach club for our final 6 nights. I absolutely love this resort, it’s one of my favourites and with the construction going on at the entrance to Epcot it will be amazing being able to just walk in through the international gateway without having to deal with any of that! We have managed to pack our dirty clothes/clean not going to be work clothes and clothes we need for the rest of the holiday separately so we won’t need to unpack everything at beach club. It’s going to be quite the shock going from having so much space at mystic dunes to all being shoved into one single room at beach club. The 2 bedroom apartment has been perfect for us this trip especially with DS going to bed much earlier than the rest of us. We have been after to sit and enjoy a drink/chill in the evening without being concerned about waking him up, not sure how the rest of the holiday is going to work out!



I was up at 5.30 (seems to be a theme this) with DS and kept him quiet and entertained so he didn’t disturb DH and Dd. They woke around 7am and we got dressed before heading along to the lounge for breakfast. There was a really good selection of food. Breads/muffins/bagels for toasting, Cheese and ham, boiled eggs, fruit, biscuits and gravy, pastries, cereal and mini muffins. The usual coffee, juices and soft drinks were available too.



I had a bagel with cheese and prosciutto ham which was lovely.



Also grabbed a plate of biscuits and gravy, DH didn’t think the gravy was as good as chef mickeys but was nice and quite peppery.



We also had some fruit and pastries.









After breakfast we packed away all of our stuff and went for a walk around the resort, we watched the animals for a while then made our way back up to the lounge for some lunch.









Arrived at Hollywood studios and were parked right at the back of the car park, looked like it was very busy today already. Once in the park our first stop was the fancy Nancy meet and greet, this was a new one for us. Dd wanted to show fancy Nancy her magic band which had her on. Next we popped over to see vamporina and then it was time for our smugglers run fastpass.



Dd and DH had been on this the other day before we got rained off and DH said he wasn’t too fussed about doing it again but wanted to look round galaxy’s edge. Dd and I went on smugglers run and were lucky enough to get the pilot role, this is much more impressive as you control the movements of the aircraft between the 2 of you as pilots. When we came off dh had bought a few things in the market area and was pleased with his finds and it was time for our fastpass for toy story mania. We took the back shortcut along to toy story land as parked up the stroller before heading onto the ride. DH took DS which gave me the opportunity to beat him for once!



We also had a fastpass for alien swirling saucers but decided that hanging around for an hour until it opened was abit pointless and we would be better off making our way to the contemporary early and seeing if we could be seated sooner. As we walked out of toy story land Dd asked if she could have an ice cream so we found a cart and used a snack credit to get a Mickey ice cream sandwich, this should have been $6 so was a great use of a snack credit.



DH and I got a schofferhofer grapefruit beer to share, well for me to drink and DH to have a taste of haha. This was $11 and really refreshing on a warm day.



We then made our way out of the park and drove over to the contemporary we were an hour early for our reservation but they let us check in anyway and seated us not long after. Our server was Jay and he was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Warm and welcoming, very knowledgeable and faultlessly professional.






He took our drink order, I had a roederer sparking rose which was $20 and very nice.



DH had a Honig Cabernet Sauvignon which was $23 and Dd had an apple juice.



Our server brought us some sourdough bread with a sundried tomato and garlic olive oil dip. This was lovely, the dip had lots of flavour.



For starter there was only one thing on mine and DH’s radar, the spicy Kazan roll $29.



This is crab, shrimp and tuna sushi roll served around bay scallops in fireball sauce. This is the best sushi I have ever eaten and we cleared our plates, ginger and pickle included.






Dd had chicken noodle soup which she loved and ate every last bit.



For mains again DH and I had exactly the same, the oak fired fillet of beef, this was served medium rare with aged Gouda Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, oxtail marmelade and a red wine- onion jus. The beef was cooked to perfection and barely needed a knife to cut it. The Brussel sprouts had so much flavour and the mac cheese was very nice. I always find Mac cheese an odd accompaniment to steak but it was fine.



Dd had the grilled beef tenderloin served with white rice and green beans, this was a huge plateful for a children’s portion. The beef was delicious and cooked a perfect medium.



For dessert dh had a tarte tatin, even though the menu said it had cinnamon it wasn’t overpowering and very subtle, he enjoyed this.



I had the warm valrhona chocolate cake served with panna cotta and ice cream. This was really good, the cake was lovely and gooey inside.



Dd had the puffed rice sushi which was rice crispie cake and gummies made to look like sushi, she enjoyed this but was stuffed by this point.



Our bill came to $303 but was covered by 2 credits each on the dining plan. The dining plan only cost $285 for the 3 of us so chef mickeys, the refillable mugs and 6 snacks ended up effectively free. We haven’t actually used out mugs at all yet but they will come in very useful when we check into beach club for 6 nights on Sunday so we would have bought 3 mugs at a cost of $60 while staying there.
After our meal we considered watching the fireworks at magic kingdom but we have to be up and our very early for our day at discovery cove so we decided to give them a miss and catch them next week. We still had 5 snack credits to use up so we headed to Contempo cafe to grab some cupcakes and Dd got herself a candy apple from LBV gifts. Total for these should have been $29.
We then drove back to mystic dunes, quickly got everything ready for the morning and were straight to bed.
I live doing the maths around our use of the dining plan.
The total cost was $285 for the 3 of us.
Chef mickeys = $162
California grill = $303
Refillable mugs = $60
Snacks = $35
Total value =$561
Saving = $276
Granted we wouldn’t have bought the snacks all when we did and we probably wouldn’t have had 3 course ay California grill had we been paying out of pocket but it was a lovely treat knowing we could have 3 courses, pick anything we wanted and cost was no issue. We absolutely love doing the deluxe dining plan for 1 or 2 nights for this reason.



So today was the day I had been looking forward to/anticipating the most. Today we were checking in for our 1 night stay club level at animal Kingdom lodge on dvc points. This reservation is like the holy grail of dvc reservations. In Jambo house the dvc rooms are all located on the 5th floor except for 5 studios and 5 1 bedrooms which are on the 6th floor, these 10 rooms are the only club level allocation dvc has and is near impossible to get if you are not an owner at AKL. I happened to come across a random night available in a studio back in the summer and immediately booked it as it is something I’d wanted to do for a long time. So this morning I was awake at 5.30am with DS and too excited to get back to sleep. When DH and Dd woke up we packed our bag for our overnight stay and made the short drive to animal kingdom lodge.



We checked in first at the desk on the ground floor but when they looked up our reservation and found we were club level we were immediately escorted up to the 6th floor and checked in by the concierge.



They gave us our magic bands and a welcome pack with some information about the resort/activities/dining plan/club level lounge. There was also a back of chocolate covered granola from the ganachery at Disney springs.



Our room wasn’t ready which wasn’t a surprise as it was only 10am. We had a coffee in the lounge, there is a coffee machine, nespresso machine and a fridge full of soft drinks as well as a number of dispensers with iced tea, water, lemonade and jungle juice to help yourself to.












After our refreshments we had a wander around the resort before heading out and driving over to the contemporary resort for our brunch reservation at chef Mickey’s.



We were on the deluxe dining plan for our 1 night stay meaning we got 3 dining credits each. We checked in at chef mickeys and were seated about 10’minutes later. I know this meal gets some mixed reviews but we love it! The characters are great and it’s not of DD’s favourites which she asks to do every trip.



After we were seated our server took our drinks order. I had a pina colava. This is a frozen pina colada cocktail with raspberry purée. It’s absolutely delicious and was included with the dining plan.



DH had the watermelon lemonade as he was driving. This is topped with wild berry foam and really refreshing. Dd ordered an orange juice but was brought apple juice first which was quickly replaced by an orange juice.



Dd had been looking forward to this meal for months. She couldn’t wait to have tater tots! She also got a pancake with maple syrup, watermelon and scrambled eggs. All of it was very tasty.



My first plate was a bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese, scrambled eggs, cheesy potatoes, sausage, bacon and tater tots. The smoked salmon was fantastic! And the bacon was really hard and crispy just as I love it.



DH had scrambled eggs, ham, biscuits and gravy, sausages and a pancake. He said the ham was really good. This was carved to order at the buffet.



Next DH had a plate of the beef stew with rice and a corn on the cob.



I then tried some bits and pieces, shrimp and grits which was really good, baked salmon which was quite dry, kielbasa which was weird and beef stew and rice which was really tasty.



For Dessert I had a Mickey waffle with maple syrup and chocolate and peanut butter chips. I’m actually not too much of a fan of Mickey waffles and didn’t finish this.



DH had another plate from the main buffet mainly salad and shrimps, he said the shrimps were really good.



Dd got an ice cream sundae from the self service area. She chose chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream and topped it with loads of things like nerds, gummies, cherries, sprinkles and jelly beans.



DH tried a selection of the deserts, they all seemed quite sickly looking. The cannoli is filled with cookie dough. The chocolate cake was nice and moist.



After we’d finished we paid the bill. This was $50 for adults and $33 for children and with our drinks our total would have been $161.13.



After our brunch, feeling more than stuffed we returned to animal kingdom lodge and our room was ready, I was thrilled to find we had one on the left hand side of the lounge which meant we had one of the rooms with a view over the savannah. We had a look out and could see some zebras, ostriches and Thompson gazelles. Today was a cooler day with predicted temperatures around 17 degrees but at this time it was feeling quite nice and warm.



DH had a headache coming on so took some painkillers and we decided to give him some time to just sit and chill on the room so I took Dd and DS down to Boma where they were doing cookie decorating from 1.30-2pm. There were cups of coloured buttercream, jelly sweets and chocolate chips on the tables and the cast member came round with a tray of animal shaped cookies for you to choose from to decorate. I chose a tortoise and Dd did an elephant, this was a really fun activity that was so simple. Most people are their cookies before leaving but Dd wanted to take hers back up to the room to show DH.






On the way back through the lobby we spotted the traditional African face painting over by the stairs at the back of the lobby, a couple of cast members were set up and Dd had her face done. She’s been asking to have her face painted since we arrived so was made up with this.



We went back upto the room and DH was feeling much better so we took a walk down to mara where we picked up our refillable mugs. At the moment you are able to pay a $10 on the dining plan and upgrade the plastic mugs for a metal travel mugs. We decided to get 2 plastic original mugs and 1 metal Star Wars themed night. We put these straight into the pram as our plan was just to keep there for our stay at beach club as they are valid for 2 weeks from today. We then walked around the pool and out to the little playground near the back of the resort. Dd had a lovely time playing here for 20 Minutes of so. We made our way back to the main lobby and on the way passed a table tennis table with paddles and balls and the 3 of us had a game.
By now it was just after 4pm and the afternoon offerings were out in the lounge and we were starting to feel abit hungry after our brunch/lunch. Dd loved using her magic and to scan the reader in the lifts to get upto the 6th floor, she felt really special.



When we got to the lounge there were a couple of small desserts, chocolate chip muffins and butterscotch chip brownies aswell as cookies. The brownies were really soft and gooey and tasted so good!






There was a selection of things to make your own trail mix including m&ms, gummie sweets, jelly beans, spiced nuts, dried cranberries, dried banana and goldfish crackers. Dd got a plate and had a selections instead of a little bag you could make up and take away with you.



We asked one of the concierge cast members for a glass of wine and she happily brought us a glass of red for DH and a sparking white for me. This was really nice actually and we enjoyed a chill out while DS had a nap and Dd did some drawing and maths practice.









At 4.30om they cleared away the desserts and starting preparing the dinner offerings, this was from 5pm-7pm and there was a lovely variety of options.



There were wines and beers to help yourself to. A section with about 4 different cheeses, one of which was cambozola and DH probably ate his body weight of this. There was honeycomb, a cured meat, chutney and a huge basket of artisanal breads. Further along were some veggies and ranch dip, sliced apples and caramel sauce and peanut butter. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, meatballs with a tamarind barbecue sauce and a small serving of minted couscous topped with some kind of meat but we couldn’t find the sign for this and I couldn’t put my finger on what it was.



There was also a chefs section with 2 hot sample size servings. These were a sambal chicken corn chowder and a pork dish. Both of these were absolutely excellent. The sauce for the pork dish was really tasty and I mopped the rest up with some bread and the chowder had a Thai taste to it and was delicious.









Overall the dinner offerings made for a lovely relaxed dinner and we spent a good amount of time returning for more and enjoying the wine. I tried a glass of Sauvignon blanc but preferred the sparking so went back to that. It was especially nice with some jungle juice in it to make a mimosa!



We decided we’d had quite enough food and wine so went for a look around the resort now it was night time, the lobby is beautiful and really impressive, there were a number of fires inside and out you could set around and relax and the evening wasn’t too cold. We found our way to the arcade and spent half an hour in here with Dd playing on the arcade games and I had a go in one of the massage chairs which was odd but relaxing.



It was after 8pm by this point which was proving to be quite late for us on this holiday so we popped back up to the lounge for the dessert offering which were out from 8-10pm. There were more butterscotch chip brownies, a passion fruit tart, vanilla and lemon dessert cones, cookies and apple slices with caramel and peanut butter. They also had a self serve liqueur section with kaluha, amarula and grand mariner.









We had a small glass of amarula to go with our desserts and then grabbed a couple of cans of coke to take back to our room before getting ready for bed. Overall our impressions of club level at animal kingdom were extremely positive. We would absolutely love to come back and do this again in a heartbeat. The 22 point per night cost was an absolute bargain when you compare it to the cash cost of about $600 per night. The food offerings were plentiful and alcohol was available all day upon request. Our favourite dishes were the chefs tastings of chowder and the pork, the cambozola and definitely the jungle juice mimosas.



Woke up at 7.30am this morning, considering the late night last night for us all I was slightly disappointed that we didn’t sleep later. DH had a longer lie in and I eventually had to wake him at 10.10am.
A friend of mine is also here in Florida at the moment, also staying at mystic dunes and we’d arranged to do an escape room get her while we were both here. I’d booked narco at escapology on I drive for 11.20am so was picking her up at 10.40 to drive up there. We arrived around 11 and filled in our waivers and waited for them to call us for our room. We’ve done 2 other rooms here in the past and the thing it had over other escape room centres is that you are not out in with other people, you have the room to yourself. We really enjoyed this room and managed to escape in 55 minutes which we were pleased with as there are some very challenging puzzles in there. After the room I dropped my friend off at the outlets at Vineland and returned to mystic dunes to collect the rest of the family and head out.



We decided to go to Hollywood studios, the plan was to check out galaxies edge and have a late lunch. While we were sorting out our stuff to leave I checked for fastpasses and managed to get smugglers run at 3pm, toy story mania at 5.35pm and alien swirling saucers for 6.55pm. I was thrilled with these at such short notice!
We arrived at Hollywood studios at 2.30pm and went straight to dockside diner for some food. DH and I both got the hot dog topped with pulled pork and coleslaw. This came with a bag of plain crisps.



Dd had the kids mac and cheese with an orange, apple slices and an apple juice.



Our total came to $34.59 and that would see us right through into this evening.



We then made our way into galaxys edge and it started to rain unfortunately. DH and Dd went and did their fastpass for smugglers run and I got us a rider swap added for 5.30pm, not sure why this is the first place that has given us a time so far in the future rather than an immediate return time.



While DH and Dd were on the rise DS and I took shelter near the queue. After dh and Dd came off smugglers run the rain was pretty heavy and didn’t look like it was going to ease so we made the decision to leave, it was cold and wet and pretty miserable. By the time we got back to the car we were soaked through. We drove back to mystic dunes and the 192 was at a standstill, we went out to racetrack along the east direction and picked up some beers and cans of mikes lemonade for the evening. We thought we were being clever taking the sherberth road route back to mystic dunes but even that was backed up, took us about half an hour to get back to the 192 and when we did we headed further west along it to Krispy Kreme to pick up some snacks for this evening.



When we got back we spent the evening chilling out having a few drinks and eating donuts. In Krispy Kreme I had gotten a mixed box of 12 which cost $11.99, I knew we wouldn’t t eat them all but this was the best deal and we’d have some leftover for another day. Picture was taken after the vultures had already been at them.



This morning was out longest lie in yet, we woke at 7.30am. Still ridiculously early now we’re into the second week. We got up and decided as we were going to moonlight magic at animal kingdom tonight we’d give the parks a miss this morning/afternoon and head to the outlets on international drive. We arrived around 11pm and the car park was pretty busy, one of the frustrations of the outlets is the number of spaces for paid/valet parking. It’s makes finding a bone paying space pretty difficult. Our shopping trip last week was alright in terms of purchases, today we nailed it. In Ted baker I found a pair of jeans in the sale that fit absolutely perfectly. These were $36 down from $185. DH bought a 3 piece suit (trousers/jacket/waistcoat), all matching and all in his size. The jacket alone was down from over $600 to $120. He’d been on the lookout for a new suit for a year or so so could t believe his luck at finding this. Next we bought some of the random flavours of Lindt chocolates in the Lindt shop. 40 chocolates for $17, there were all flavours we couldn’t get at home.



Character warehouse wasn’t at all busy compared with the Vineland store which was nice, meant we could have a proper look round. I got a hoody for $19.99 and we got a couple of Christmas ornaments for our tree.



Final purchases were made in Levi’s where DH got 2 pairs of jeans and I got 1. The were $39 each if you bought 3 pairs so a great deal. Pleased with our purchases we made our way back to the 192 and headed to millers for a late lunch, it was almost 3pm by the time we arrived.



Our server was absolutely brilliant and so lovely! We ordered our drinks, coke for DH, Diet Coke for me and a lemonade for Dd.



For our meals DH and I shared, we had a zinger mountain melt with Medium sauce. This is sooooo good! It’s a plate of fries with chicken strips in a medium sauce, topped with cheese, spring onion and bacon bits. It comes with ranch and blue cheese sauce.



We also got the spinach and artichoke dip with came with a plate of tortilla chips to dip in. This was nice enough, something I’ve never had before but not something I’d hurry to order again. The spicy salsa with it was really good.



Dd had meatballs and tagliatelle, this came with garlic bread and was a huge portion.



For desert we got our usual captain jacks buried treasure and shared between us, this is everything I love in a dessert on one plate. Chocolate, ice cream and caramel.



Our total came to $44 which is a complete bargain!we came back to mystic dunes to drop off our purchases and put in an hour or so before heading out to animal kingdom for the Disney vacation club moonlight magic members event.



I took DS out for a walk around the resort, it was such a warm afternoon/evening but overcast so it was lovely. DH and Dd went to the pool for an hour or so.



Around 7pm we left for animal kingdom, we took the shortcut from the 192 down sherberth road and were in the car park in no time. We parked right up at the front at the end of peacock 9 so we had a 2 minute walk to the entrance. Just as we arrived it started spitting with rain and we thought we were going to be in for a wash out of an evening. Fortunately this didn’t last long! After bag check we made our way to the even check in area and got our wristbands, quick service voucher and game coupon.



We made our way to pandora as I had managed to make a fastpass for Navi river. DH waited this one out with DS as he was falling asleep in his pram. After this we had a wander around the park, everywhere was ‘closing’ while the regular park hours came to an end at 8pm and the park guests were leaving. We eventually decided now would be a good time to get some food using our vouchers. We agreed on flame tree bbq as it’s our usual go to quick service in animal kingdom. The queue was quite long but probably not much worse than peak lunch time. DH ordered the ribs and chicken combo which comes with coleslaw and beans.



I had the pulled pork mac and cheese, this came with onion rings and coleslaw on top. I really enjoyed this, there was loads of pulled pork and the mac cheese was really cheesy.
Dd had a kids hot dog meal, this came with a Danone yoghurt, cookie and chocolate milk.
DH and I got a Minute Maid lemonade as our drink which was included too.
The total for this rang up to $45 but we paid using our vouchers for this evening.



After we’d finished eating it was 9pm and the event had started, we went over to dinoland and used our game tokens, we let Dd use all 3 but unfortunately she didn’t win anything.



After the games we came across a dance party with Minnie, Mickey, Pluto and daisy, they were dancing with each of the kids and it was really good fun.



Dd wanted to go on dinosaur so we headed up that way and her and DH went on whilst I sat outside the exit with a sleeping DS. They were on and off really quickly and Dd decided she would like to go again and ride with me. We walked all the way through an empty queue into an empty pre ride video, after watching that we walked straight onto a ride vehicle waiting. It was brilliant literally no queue at all!



After chasing the iguanodon Dd and I were off to ride triceratops soon, on the way over we saw Pluto now at the dance party so had a dance with him first.
When we got to triceratops soon there was again no queue and we were on a mostly empty ride. These crowd at the event was either really minimal or they were all in pandora.



We walked on round to Everest and again this was a walk on, never thought I would see the day! Dd and I went first, she had a moment as we set off but when she got off decided she wanted to go again with DH! There was also a special viewing of rivers of light on during the event. We did a couple of the character meets, there was Mowgli and baloo in the adventure outpost. 2 of the 3 calabreros near the tough to be a bug exit. Doug, russell and the old guy further down by the tree of life, Kevin was near the entrance to dinoland, we also so jiminy cricket and Pocahontas.



We called into Starbucks where they were giving out free ice creams, we got ourselves a Mickey bar each and by this point Dd was starting to flag so she reluctantly agreed to call it a night. It was starting to rain again at this point so we thought it was for the best in case it came on heavy. We walked back to the car and were back at the resort just before midnight, we were all quickly sorted for bed and asleep in no time!
