My Florida Holiday Round-up – Day 6

17 Jun

Day 6 – Friday 13th May

We spent the morning chilling by the pool to take a break! It was such a beautiful day, and relaxing by the pool for a few hours in the sun certainly did the trick.

In the afternoon we headed for Epcot. The garden and flower festival was on and the park looked beautiful with all of the fave Disney characters made of flowers.

We arrived at the park at around 2:30pm and we went straight to Soarin’ to try and get a fast pass, but they were all gone. There was a 90 minute queue at this point, so we decided not to bother!

Instead we headed over to go on Test Track, but there was also a 90 minute queue, and the fast pass return time was when we had a dinner reservation! It was such a shame that we didn’t get to go on either of these rides but we didn’t let that ruin our day!

Instead we went to watch Captain EO (which was good, but dated) followed by Spaceship Earth. We enjoyed it as we hadn’t done it last time, it featured some great effects – including a futuristic video featuring us!

We then decided to queue up to meet the characters. I am a child at heart and have always wanted to have my photo taken with them! Here are a few of the pics:

After this, we wandered through the pavillions, heading towards Italy. We had an ADR at Via Napoli. We both love Italian food – so decided to book a table their after reading reviews online. We shared a large pizza with spicy Italian sausage, and it really was LARGE:

After that we waited to watch Illuminations: Reflections of the Earth. This is a spectacular show filled with pyrotechnics, lasers, fire and fountains and was truly brilliant!

That completed our day and off home to bed we went!
