The Incredibles take a vacation - Feb 2020- Day 8 Disney springs and Hollywood Studios (Storybook D

Wed originally planned a free/pool day here with chef Mickeys for dinner. Before we left the UK I decided that I wanted to do storybook dining, but wasnt sure which ADR to switch. At the the start of the holiday I decided that it would be Chef Mickeys and managed to switch for Artists point at the perfect time. When we visited the contemporary for the pirates dessert party I was glad we did this as I didnt really like it over there. It turned out to be too cloudy and cool for the pool today, so we went over to Disney springs. By the time we got off the bus it was raining and we realised wed forgotten the bag with the hoodie and jackets in, but we trooped on. First stop was goodys candy company to rinse some of the 43 credits we had left. The kids got bags of sweets for their friends.



We were undecided on where to eat so we decided to get a starter in T. rex to use the Landry card credit and then go to blaze to share a pizza. T. rex is pretty cool, but its huge and noisy even when it first opens. We got a sharing sampler appetiser and a couple of beers. The food was quite good, but we were stuffed and couldnt fit in the pizza.



Id got fastpass for beauty and the beast and had just managed to bag one for toy story mania, so we slowly made our way to Hollywood studios ( via the boat to old key west to be nosy). We got perfect seats for beauty and the beast and it turned out to be everyones favourite show ( I particularly enjoyed Gaston!). The kids were peckish again now so I mobile ordered 2 adult chicken tender meals from backlot express which we shared and Mr I and I got a beer and cocktail. We did toy story mania with improved scores all round and headed back to the hotel, with just us on the bus, to get changed.



In the original plans I had intended to get a Surrey bike at wilderness lodge, but Mr I had since torn his calf, so that was off. We had a little wander around the resort before heading to the bar. We were called early for our ADR despite the cast member saying they were running 15 minutes late. Its really lovely in the artist point restaurant and the food is slightly better than a lot of other places (although its mainly in presentation not taste). Again dessert was the winner. The character interactions were great here, but obviously Evil Queen steals the show. Definitely our favourite character meet! We headed back to AKL as violet wanted to watch the premiere of Disneys Zombies 2 🙄, it was still a bit chilly for a late night swim so we got some packing done whilst the kids indulged in the tv. A slower day, but still a good one.

Yes, we had wanted to pop over to use the pool at Kidani, but Were not too bothered as this holiday wasnt really about pool time. We always knew wed be tight on relaxing time in order to fit stuff in.
