Our 5th Trip of Firsts: Day 13 - Florida Mall & AK


Today started with the news that Trump was the president elect I actually couldn't believe it, I honestly thought it was a joke when I first heard he was running for president, hard to believe he ended up winning. We watched a bit of news on TV and had breakfast at the villa. (Dunkin Donuts may have featured again :/ )
The kids love the Toys R' Us at the Florida Mall so we were headed there today. I have to say, I love it there too, it's much better than any toy shop we have here in Ireland We had to persuade the boys not to buy these! They both are obsessed with teddies and buy so many character ones over there every year that we fill a carry on case with them so these guys were just a step too far in size!



We spent about an hour in there and the boys spent lots of their money. Went over to the main mall next for the Christmas Shop & Macy's. I bought 3 tree decorations in the Xmas shop but forgot to photograph them and they are now packed away in the attic. Bought nothing in Macy's.
We were hungry at this point so went to Five Guys for lunch. Love it here although one opened in Dublin last year so it's not the same novelty anymore. The Oreo milkshakes are soooo good.



It was on to Animal Kingdom after lunch. We had fastpasses for the safari and 2 for Expedition Everest I had only made these fastpasses the night before as today had been a 'return to any park day' on our plans and had made our first one for Kali River Rapids but I wasn't even sure we would do it but there wasn't much choice. When we got up that morning I said I was going to cancel KRR because we left the villa later than planned and didn't want to be rushing from the mall to AK. Well, some good luck intervened as I got a message from Disney saying they had to cancel that FP and I could make one for any other ride so that's how I got 2 for EE plus I got the 2nd one a bit later in the day which suited us better as well!















Annoyingly, a woman and her child got into our row on the safari truck even thought he cast member had removed people from other rows that weren't from the same party and kept saying only 1 party per row. It meant we could only get good photos from one side of the truck After the safari we went straight to EE and rode it and then could go again straight away with the open FP.



We decided to leave after this, it was nearly 5 & the boys wanted to go in the pool. Did a bit of shopping on the way out of the park, had been eyeing up this bag that was $20 with any purchase over $70. (Or maybe it was over $50, I didn't write it in my notes so am working from memory.)



Bought these 2 frames and a replacement bowl for one that we broke at home! It was $85 for the lot, the bag is great, it has so many pockets etc so it'll make a great summer day out bag this year for the beach, local parks etc

We go back to the villa and Fionn was straight in the pool. Odhrn didn't end up going in, everyone was tired today, you know when you get a day where all the action catches up on you, today was it for us! We ordered pizza for dinner as nobody could be bother going back out and had an early night

Lovely day, it's great having your own villa to just go back to and get in the pool.
