Our holiday is coming to an end - but before it does we had one last day at the Animal Kingdom.
J and I made the most of the good weather in the morning by popping down to the pool while the others slept on. We got back mid morning, showered, dressed and left and got to AK just before our fast pass for Flight of passage opened. This ride is really amazing- feel very luck...

We were up early today for our last trip to Disney Hollywood Studios. Managed to get all the new Toy Story rides done early on - I really enjoyed them. Slinky is great and the Alien Swirlers really made me laugh. The whole land is very impressive looking - really immersive. It does however offer very little shade.

We were back at Typhoon Lagoon this morning- it was supposed to be a Blizzard Beach day but the general consensus was that the wave pool at TL is too much fun to not do again. After a quick breakfast we head off and were there for rope drop - we can manage them when they are at 10am!
No pics as we didn’t have the phone but we had the following for lunch from Typhoon...

Another day of food! This one started with breakfast in the hotel room followed by a quick dip in the pool. We then made our way to Magic Kingdom on the bus as we didn’t want to face the monorail / boat trip at the end of the evening.

It was a double table service day at Epcot today.
We started with a return trip to the outlets which was only slightly better at opening time... but at least J managed to pick up a new starter set of pins to trade for 1/2 the price as in the parks.
We then decided to get the bus to Epcot as neither of us fancied driving.

It was a non-park day today to give us chance to have a rest and some down time. N, J and I started by doing the Conch Flats tour of Old Key West - this was a free tour run by a really great cast member. It lasted an hour and we got given a pin each at the end - I would really recommend anyone staying here to go on it!

It was Ls 17th birthday today - we will be getting some driving lessons for her when we get back as her main present, but she needed a few things to open on the day, so N and I had fun popping to Walmart the day before and picking up a few things - American candy, stationery etc... J had bought her a Cruikshanks (cat from Harry Potter) toy at Universal and we had got her a...

We didn’t have any fast passes booked until early afternoon today so took the opportunity to have a lie in. N and I nipped to Walmart for some more milk and some birthday supplies as L turns 17 tomorrow. We then popped down to the pool and had a quick swim, followed by an early lunch - we had booked the Mama Melrose Fantasmic package but it had meant we had to have...

Today was our first double table service day so we were light on the cereals this morning! We were going to Trattoria al Forno for breakfast followed by a day pottering around the world in Epcot - at least that was the plan - we did end up managing to do some rides too...

Writing this sitting on the balcony in the rain, watching the lightning... we’ve had a bit of a mix of a day luck wise including getting very wet on the way home tonight!
We started with a rope drop at Epcot to get on Test Track - which then went technical, so we abandoned the queue just after 9:30... despite this we had a good morning which ended with lunch with th...

A great day today at Typhoon Lagoon - no pics I’m afraid as we didn’t take the phone with us.
We went to Typhoon Tillys for lunch were we had:
L & J - chicken waffle sandwich - they both loved these!
N - chicken wrap and fries - he has been dreaming about this for a while so was pleased to finally get this, although I think he was secretly jealous of my lunch!...

Today was going to be a Magic Kingdom rope drop day but after changing some days around due to fast pass availability etc... we ended up with today being a 2 Park day, so thought I’d be a bit kinder and let people have a bit of a lie in!
We had no fast passes booked for Magic Kingdom so spent the morning having a potter round the park instead - quite a different day...

Our last full day and we still had 6 drinks and 4 snacks left on our meal plan cards. J, N and I decided to sneak in an extra trip to Volcano Bay this morning and left L in bed. Another great morning was had here - and the rapids ride was great fun - worth going back for! We used a drink credit on our way back to the shuttle bus.
We were back at the hotel, picking L up an...

Today was a double park day - Universal Studios in the morning, then IoA / Universal in the evening to see the light show.
We started with breakfast in the room as usual, then stopped mid-morning to use some of our snack credits on a Big Pink and some popcorn, which we all shared...
The donut was ace and as big as my head!

Today was a non-park day, so we all had a bit of a lie-in, then went out for breakfast to one of our favourite places - Denny’s. The same one on America Way, International Drive, which N and I went to on our first morning on our first trip to Florida together before we even got married, in 1999. We ate way too much, but it was as great as ever!

We had great fun at Volcano Bay this morning. Breakfast in the room as usual, then we went down to catch the shuttle bus from HRH about 7:45. This was full and we had to all squeeze on.
Volcano Bay was great - some really original rides / slides and once we got our bearings it was quite easy to get around. We managed to get on a few rides while they were still ride now.

It was a Universal Studios day today which seemed to involve a lot of eating!
We had purchased 12 Universal meal plans several months ago as we wanted to be able to pay for some of the Universal costs before we arrived. Each meal plan gives you a quick service meal (with a drink), a snack and a drink. We paid €22.99 + tax for these - I think they are now $23.99 + ...

We are staying at The Premier Inn at Glasgow Airport and ate our tea at the Thyme restaurant here. There was a crash on the motorway not far from the airport which delayed our arrival so we were very grateful for the food when we finally got it! We had pre-ordered meal deals which gave us 2 adult meals (2 courses & drinks).
I went for Piri-piri chicken wings to start -...
