Today was a very strange day in that all the plans went out the window.

Eva needed sleep so I decided to let her sleep in, cancel fast passes at HS and have a snack around Epcot. We had early dinner booked at Cali Grill so I moved it to Wednesday and booked Planet Hollywood.

We got to Epcot around 1pm so headed to Sunshine Seasons where we had the Mongolian Beef and fried rice. This is really tasty.



Then things went a bit pear shaped. We went to world showcase and decided to start in the pyramid in Mexico and go in the Grand Fiesta boat. Getting into the boat I slipped and really hurt my ankle. I fell into the boat with a loud scream but it just carried on moving so I kind of went round the ride lying in the boat 😂😂. I managed to get out and not liking a fuss we headed to Germany to collect Evas Kidcot stickers and got a beer, a snickerdoodle cookie and middle gratin (best snack ever! )







We found a quiet corner to eat and Sri k and weigh up the damage to my ankle. I decided Id carry on and go back to Norway for our Frozen fastpass I had picked up earlier.

Had anyone noticed the craze to wear your sunglasses like this? Very odd 😂





After Frozen we went to get a school bread but at this point my ankle gave up and I couldnt walk. Eva managed to help me hobble to first aid where they put me in a wheelchair and took me out backstage into a Minnie van and delivered me back to my room at FQ. I was so embarrassed. And pretty upset that Id forced eva back to the hotel instead of being out at the parks or pool. We decided on movies and pizza take out for tea.

We ordered in room dining and for two credits got a huge pizza, breadsticks and a couple of desserts. All really good.







I then spent the evening like this...



This morning the swelling has subsided - still a little sore but we are out and back on track with breakfast with Stitch and Yak & Yeti later followed by H2O Glow ...

We wont be doing loads of walking though just our fastpasses and food 😊
Oh poor you. Hope your ankle is feeling better now. Glad Disney took care of you and transported you home to PQ 😀

H2O Glow

Not food related but I thought I would still share our experience.

Ticket cost was $59 for after park close exclusive access to Typhoon Lagoon.

The bit I have issue with is exclusive access. It was rammed. And I mean totally full. We have been to Blizzard Beach during the day this week and there were maybe 4 times as many people there.

We arrived shortly after the 6pm park close to the public and the line to get in was massive. When we eventually got in, we couldnt find a sun lounger. They were all full. Eventually we secured one lounger in a far off corner in nowhereland. Which was fine as we didnt really need it to be honest. We did have to join a scrum to get a locker - !$10 extra for this and not included in ticket price. Also worth noting - you cant get towels you have to bring your own.

We did lazy river for one lap to acclimatise then from 7pm to 10pm we rode Misadventure Falls 3 times, (this line wasnt so bad at 15-20 minutes each time) crush n Gusher once (45 minute line) and gangplank Falls once (hour wait) - thats all. We spent nearly all night in line. We saw the lines to meet the characters and me being me I stood and counted at the Buzz line - there were over 40 people in line. Same at Jessie and Woody. We just didnt have enough time. The last hour we spent in the lazy river and that bit was fun but I think $120 for an hour in the lazy river and 3 rides isnt really what we expected given we were there for nearly 5 hours. We did much more in Blizzard Beach on a normal day.

We did this party last year and had a great time riding multiple times with small lines. Last night was another example of Disney over selling ticketed events.

I hate to come across as a misery guts - we did love the rides and loved being in the park at night but I like to get value for these things and I cant help feeling ripped off.

I think Id rather pay a few more bucks and have fewer people there to be honest.

We did grab a chicken nuggets and chips at the end so have included as this is supposed to be my food review. 😂😊😊they were standard good nuggets. (The dippin dots was closed which Eva was not impressed with.)



We were treated to a muscle man in just his tiny budgie smuggling under-crackers all the way back on the bus though. Maybe somebody stole his clothes?

Tomorrows review is much more positive - Cape May character breakfast and great steak at Yachtsman

What a shame about H20 event. We did look at booking it as it had generally good reviews last year.

The LionKing Scavenger Hunt looks great. I had not heard of that.

The scooter photo is so funny. Hope your ankle is feeling a tad better😊

I think I would have expected less people too for an after hours event. Shame it was so busy.
Im looking forward to your review of Cape May as I have booked this to take our niece and nephew who will be 3 and 6. Its ages since we went so Im hoping it was good.
