Our 5th Trip of Firsts: Day 11 - Shopping,Cheesecake Factory & HS


This morning started with breakfast at the villa. There had been a little panic with teabags, I'm addicted to tea and always use the m&s extra strong teabags at home. I had brought a packet with me thinking there was 80 in it but there was only 40... major panic as the only place I could get a cup of tea I liked was Starbucks so I used my own anywhere else until I tried Dunkin Donuts black tea one of the days, it was surprisingly good so seeing as there was a DD just up the road from the villa Robbie was sent to get tea from there and of course a few snacks The little hash browns from here are lovely As are the donut holes...

Our first stop of the day was the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. We had never been here before. We went to Tommy Hilfiger, Gap & The Theme Park Outlet. We were mainly shopping for presents to bring back today.



In TH I got 2 pairs of flip flops for myself, a top for me, 2 pairs of socks for my Dad (he loves these socks!) & a top & bag for my niece. $94 for the lot



Theme Park Outlet was next, it wasn't great, a few bargains though. I got an Elsa top & Minnie teddy for my goddaughter, $20.



Always have to look in Gap so went there next and got 2 pairs of shorts & a top for $30. I had been looking at the navy shorts in the Gap outlet store in Dublin during the summer and they were €38 there! There was 50% off in this shop and I had an email for a further 40%. I would say the bargains in this particular Gap store are better than the other outlets.



After Gap we left and drove to the Mall at Millenia. I love this mall. Anywhere with the Cheesecake Factory is always a winner We had a look around, Robbie bought in Tommy Bahama as usual and I went to White House Black Market. Tried on lots of different things but wasn't really happy with anything and bought nothing. Resisted the temptation of visiting Tiffanys as I knew I wouldn't be purchasing anything there this year so thought it best to just stay out! Had a look in Macy's and bought some Xmas decorations. I love the Villeroy & Boch Xmas stuff, it's really old fashioned and traditional looking but is so expensive here so I always try to get something over there. Picked up the V&B nutcracker tree decorations & the Macy's flip flop tree decoration for $30.



It was now time for lunch
I actually took photos of this meal!



Actually I only photographed my own



Take away cheesecake, we are always too full to eat it there.



We went back to the villa for an hour & then went to HS where we had FP for Star Tours, Tower of Terror & Fantasmic.
ST & ToT were great as usual. We had never done Fantasmic before so we're really excited about this.



Waiting for the show to start



Hmmm, I know this will be an unpopular opinion here on the dibb but we thought Fantasmic was a bit rubbish. Glad we did it but I wouldn't bother doing it again!
We headed home to the villa after

Some nice bits of shopping today again. Of all the night time shows I would say, much as I like it, Fantasmic probably comes in at the bottom of my list and if I had to miss it, it wouldn't be a disaster.

I'm not the biggest fan of Fantasmic either. It's worthwhile to see once but certainly isn't a must do show every visit for us
