Ok so on with Day 3:
We scheduled the girls to do the Albatross Treasure Cruise over at Yacht Club. We were taking Justin over to Kouzzina for Breakfast. We signed the kids in and found out that they were the only 4 particpating. Kinda felt good about that since they would be on the water, and I tend to be a little bit of a control freak about that type of thing!
Anyways, we had a really good breakfast, I got the Scrambeld Eggs with Feta and tomoatoes and DH got the Turkey - Sweet Potato Hash. Dh really enjoyed his Frappe, and I have to admit, although not a huge coffee fan, it was quite delicious!
We went and did some shopping in the Boardwalk Stores and then strolled on back over to the Bayside Marina. The girls had such a great time! They sailed all through the lagoon, they say they went into the harbor at Epcot, not sure if they understood where they were but that’s what they said. Anywyas they gave the girls these cute little pirate bags that had “booty” inside! A Gem ring, pirate patch, beeds, bandana, compass, and some goodies! They talked about it all day!
We headed on over to Epcot, and got fast passes for Soarin’ for later that afternoon. Then over to Figment, a family tradition, for reasons I will spare from you!
We spent a lot of time in future world, we figured we would devote a day to it, and then after our early dinner reservations at Le cellier we would hit the Festival and round out the day! On our way to Canada I saw that the festival booth was serving the cheddar cheese soup! I figured I would grab that rather than order it in the restaurant, since appetizers aren’t covered. I used a snack credit! Cheap, I know! But soooo good!
As always we had such a delicious dinner. I can’t remember what DH ordered but I do know that I am still craving my Mushroom Fillet. The girls were able to get Cheddar Cheese soup with their meals, so since they don’t care for it (they are crazy!) I swiped it!! Mmmm, delish!
We left and walked the countries and tried a few drinks along the way. Chris loved the Cherry Wheat on Tap, and the Spaten in Germany! I had a Chardonay in Austria and a Chianti in Italy with a piece of chocolate! We found a seat on the bridge between France and the International Gateway and waited for the fireworks to begin! When we saw Illuminations last December, it left goosebumps, it was approximately 20/25 minutes and was fabulous! Once the fireworks were over, Chris and I commented to one another that we remembered it being so much better, maybe we were just distracted. We hopped on a friendship boat and headed back to the Boardwalk with three exhausted children. On the boat, a woman asked if we watched Illuminations and I said we had, she said, she could not believe how quick it was, we looked at our watch and it was 9:12 (no lie)! She said she was there in November of 2008 and since they were so good, she booked the boat in the harbor ride during Illuminations for Friday night and it was $180. She said she was going to cancel. They were very dissapointing. Don’t get me wrong, it was great to see fireworks, but they did not leave us speachless like they had in December.
Came back, put the kids to bed, and sat out on our balcony for a bit, another day down, how did we already speed through 3 days of our vacation! This stinks!!! I want it to last longer!!! Since Decmeber was a 10 day trip, we hated going back to a 7 day trip, it’s better than none, but never enough!!
