Day 4: We began our day with the Character Breakfast at Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club Resort. I really decided to make a reservation for a character breakfast thinking Abigail would like it - because Colby told me he knows it's just people dressed up in a suit. But, to my surprise, Colby really enjoyed it! On the other hand, Abigail decided to sit as far away as possible from the characters and hid as they came by. Hence, there are no pictures of Abigail and all of them with Colby! Interesting... Her tune probably would have changed if I had called 180 days in advance and made the outrageously expensive reservations in the Cinderella Castle. But, I didn't plan that far in advance!!
After breakfast, we went to the Animal Kingdom. This is the only park I hadn't been to in the past. It's like 4 times as big as Magic Kingdom - so lots of walking. It was pretty neat seeing all of the animals, but just not as exciting as the Magic Kingdom!
That evening, we decided to try to find a yummy Italian restaurant. Our GPS led us to Bergamo's - an Italian restaurant with singing waiters. It was a great restaurant in the round. In the middle there was a grand piano and this was where the waiters and waitresses would sing. We sat right in front! It was such a nice evening with lots of yummy food and some great music. On the way home, both kids fell asleep in the car!
Day 5: We began this day by going to the World's Largest Playplace McDonald's. It was an experience, but not one I wish to ever repeat. When we finished there, we planned on going to one of the parks, but Mother Nature decided differently. It began pouring rain! So, we decided to go with Plan B and go see the Night at the Museum 2 in an IMAX theater. The movie was alright, but so much better because of being at the IMAX!
Day 6: We made the 1 1/2 hour trek to Clearwater Beach, FL for the day. Amazingly, the weather really cooperated. We were able to spend 4 hours in the sun! We stopped by a Super Target (a store I really wish we had at home) on our way to the beach. We found one of the last parking places close to the beach and set out! Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera to the beach, so there aren't any pictures to document our day. It was Saturday of Memorial Day, so the beach was quite full. Abigail had an awesome time collecting and cleaning shells, while Colby enjoyed braving the waves with Dan. Speaking of my husband, he decided it would be ok to go without sunscreen... I believe he regretted this later! He got a major sunburn which lastest well over a week! I used the spray sunscreen on the kids, and somehow all of us got a burn of some sort. Within 10 minutes of getting back in the car to drive to Orlando, it began raining!
