Aug 17 Cheeseballs, Chipmunks, Chunder and Chaps in Uniform - Day 17 IOA, Shopping & Epcot

Aug 17 Cheeseballs, Chipmunks, Chunder and Chaps in Uniform - Day 17 IOA, Shopping & Epcot

Disney steps 15,853 5.90 miles

After our late night late night I needed a slower tempo and to face the dreaded fact we were going home in a few days and the packing was not going to do itself and it was not going to fit into the cases we had!

We bravely let the girls go over to IOA under strict instructions to be back at the room by 12, the good thing about iphones is you can watch where they are lol. They had been well behaved and knew exactly where they were going so I only checked on them about 20 times!

We stripped off all packaging and labels from all the new stuff packed as much as we could and absolutely we would need another large case. Thankfully we were doing the Disney Springs check in on our last day so we could pay the fees etc. there. The girls had rung and asked for an extension of 45 minutes which was fine as we wrestled with the cases scales and they arrived back bang on time so we decided to hit the shops for a case and some lunch.

They had a great time and had ridden The Hulk, Dr Dooms Fear Fall, grabbed a drink (very sensible) tried to do Dragon challenge but the line was too long and they had already asked for an extension so they walked round the park to come back.

We jumped in the car and went to Wholefoods Markets
where we found a hot and cold food area that you bought (paid for mainly by weight)
and then walked round to eat in their caf, which is just a seating area. It was good quality and a great choice and wed do it again now we understand what its all about. There was a mix of salad, pizza, orange chicken, rices, allsorts really. We had a scoot around the shop lots of good healthy foods but nothing that took our fancy to go home if I was staying in a villa Id do a food shop here though.

We came out into the absolutely blazing sun and only made it as far as Dunkin Donuts next door lol. TBH I prefer Krispy Kremes.
DD was Ok but not worth a special trip. Next stop was Walmarts to get a suitcase.

The girsl sat in McDs whilst Steve and I picked up the last essentials; One large suitcase,
some bounce sheets- these are SOOOO cheap my two boxes from Walmart will last the entire year before we go back, some small ziplock bags requested by my friend- Ill be stocking up on those next trip too. And a selection of small gifts for work colleagues and a ton of sugar free gum for me the flavours are much better in the US.

We dropped everything back off at the room took some bad photos in the hotel
and headed out to Epcot. There were more Disney trips left in those tickets. Id bagged a couple of fastpasses and we made Spaceship Earth green now it had opened,
Mission Space, Soarin for me, I loved that ride but it finished really late so the Steve and the girls literally ran over to Test Track for a final ride and I sauntered across and waited for them to come out. They finally surfaced and we made the trek home to HRH to out tidier room now lots had been packed, a few cheeseballs and hit the sack.

Night night all, USF, IOS, USF and Chocolate Emporium tomorrow!

A nice day, glad you got everything packed up! Must be nice to let the girls have a bit of freedom and a bit of time away from each other!

I bet the girls had fun off on their own for a bit, plus it's much easier to pack when they are not getting in the way! Fab photo of you all at the end.
