Wot no Disney - Well just a smidgeon - July 2018 mainly offsite trip report - Day 6

Wot no Disney - Well just a smidgeon - July 2018 mainly offsite trip report - Day 6

Index is here

Sunday 8th July Ė Sleepy Day

We slept like logs. Luckily, we had a late check out at AOA as ds slept right through till 10.30am when we woke him.

Headed to landscapes of flavour again, I really like the food court here, and got 3 pastry type things. $11. Sorry no photos again as we were also heading to the pool for a quick swim.

Checked out at 1 and left our bags at AOA and headed to Disney springs.

Bit of shopping at Sephora, I love Sephora! Iíd signed up for the emails and got a birthday gift, of course my holiday birthday is in July, since thatís when we mainly travel. Another of my favourites is Uniqlo, they always have great selection of Disney tops and I picked up a few.

Ds wanted to go to T-Rex for lunch, I know there are perhaps lots of better choices but we had $25 on the Landry card so it didnít seem a bad idea. We showed the card and got a table a few minutes later despite there being a massive line. I had a cardi at the ready but it wasnít itís normal freezing self.

We were seated in the ice cave bit so excuse the funny coloured pictures. We tend to always have the same things when we go here but itís generally always pretty enjoyable.



Ds had the kidís popcorn shrimp. He loved it.


Dh had the tar pit shrimp, he loved it.


I had the Triassic trip as I have done every visit and it was great.


Ds was happy with his kids meal and picking off our plates. Our server was nice and the bill was ok for what we had,


We havenít ever really had a bad meal in t-Rex so Iím sure Ds and the $25 on the Landry card will drag us back.
After t-Rex we went to world of Disney which is still under refurb so way smaller than normal.


We also went to the Lego shop and Ds bought an infinity war set. Just as a side note there was masses of adults hanging about with their phones. It was pretty annoying for those people trying to check out the Lego sets. It transpired it was a Pokemon go hotspot!

Ds had a frapaccino from Starbucks. A serious strawberry. It was around 5 dollars. He liked it.


We headed back to AOA and ended up just getting the bus to Pop and walking across the bridge. I think itís great both these resorts are so close to each other as you can use the buses and food courts for both.

Requested an Uber back to the Rosen Plaza, it was $13.
We were fairly tired out so sat about for a bit trying to decide what we could be bothered doing, finally we settled on Bahama Breeze. The last time we were there we had to wait ages for a table so I reserved a table on their website for 30 minutes later and headed out. (Hereís one of my dresses from Tommy Hilfiger)



When we got there we were seated straight away and we were determined not to over order food this time but their menu is so appealing.

For drinks I had a coconut mojito ( well 2 to be exact) it was so good. Ds had a virgin pina colada and dh had a Samuel Adams.



We ordered the lobster and shrimp quesadillas, the calamari and the grilled chicken with tropical fruit salad to share. All the food was great but the salad was the standout. It was amazing.


We were not stuffed so we order the coconut cake to share. It was really good as well.


We had a lovely server and this was one of our more expensive dinners so far but well worth it.


Steps Ė 18k
Highlights Ė Ds AOA Pool, Me - Sephora shopping, Dh - Dinner at Bahama Breeze.

Another great day can't beat a good shopping day at Disney Springs. Glad you enjoyed your meals at T-Rex and Bahama Breeze. Cocktail 🍹 looks delicious. I'm with your DH and enjoy a cold Samuel Adams.

Thanks, you can't fault Bahama Breeze for a cocktail that's for sure.

Absolutely, we never seem to get past the starters with maybe 1 main added in. i see you have Endless Summer booked, I'd love to hear what it is like to stay at, it looks good and it is so reasonable.

Youíd hope so. Itís a shame youíve had to keep rescheduling but youíll get there.
We are hoping to go next October too, Iím desperate to try HHN. I still keep pricing up this October but no decent prices and Dh keeps saying itís too soon.
