Day by Day at Walt Disney World! Day 5 & 6
Sept. 26 & 27th A big hello to everyone that is following along our vacation! Are you sick of hearing about this yet? I promise once this is over I will try to post something that will inspire you...but hey maybe you are getting inspiration to be a kid again!
Today I will combine a couple of days...because we really didn't do a lot on Sunday. My husband arose early and went golfing at the Magnolia Golf Course while I slept in. Can you believe he didn't take the camera? When he returned we had to do the dreaded job of laundry since I packed light. That night we called it our "official 25th Anniversary night". We went to downtown Disney and had a marvelous dinner at Fulton's Crab House. The food was wonderful! Compliments of the chef was a clam dip with the recipe and we got a piece of wonderful chocolate cake w/raspberry filling for dessert. After dinner we did a little sight seeing and listened to the group DEEY-C. Of course your on vacation...you buy the CD, and I got the lead singer's autograph.
A fun night...and a change of pace for this vacation!
Monday Sept. 27th
After having a relaxing day we were ready to get up early and head on over to Hollywood Studios. Scott took the tour of "The Tower of Terror"...I in no way was going to be dropped 13 floors in an elevator! He then went over and rode on the Rock n Roller Coaster that is accompanied by the music of Aerosmith.
At Hollywood Studios they have several street performances that we stopped and watched. We also took in a mini theatrical version of Beauty and the Beast, as well as a performance for High School Musical 3, and a very mini version of The Little Mermaid. We went back to Epcot to have dinner by the Queen's invitation with Royalty at the Akershus Castle in Norway. The Princess' that greeted us were Snow White, Ariel, Aurora, & Belle. They were very welcoming and attentive to each guest. We ate a traditional Norwegian meal called Kjakandke. It was delicious and served with mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and Logan berries. After dinner we went on a hang glider called Soarin'. Wow I think this was my favorite ride. You rode over the landscape of California...and could experience the smells. We then went to Great Britain and listened to the band "The British Invasion". They played lots of my Beatles tunes! Then as we were walking through Canada they had a band that was playing Celtic Rock.
This was another long but fulfilling day! On a side note...if you have little girls or are a girl at heart...I would definitely see the Princesses at Akershus!
Just a few more days to go and we will be going home! Wow the time is going by fast!
