See ya again real soon!
We didn’t get up as early as we had thought we would and by the time
we should have been at our breakfast ADR we were still trying to fit
all our belongings into our luggage. Once we had realized we would
not be able to make it in time we had then slowed down and decided
to be out of the villa at around 11. We packed, checked everywhere
for forgotten things again and then headed out the door shortly
before 11am. I called Mary Ellen and Joe once we were in the car and
they were on their way to the Magic Kingdom so we all decided to
have lunch their together. Once we had arrived we met up with them
and we headed over to Columbia Harbour House. They were pretty
packed and Cast Members were pointing guests towards the lines,
which moved pretty fast.
Luckily we found one pretty easily and started to enjoy our food.
Joe had the Fried Fish Basket
served with French Fries. Mary Ellen had the
Fried Shrimp Basket
served with Coleslaw and French Fries as well. Tom and I shared
another Fried Shrimp Basket served with Coleslaw and French Fries.
There was a generous amount of shrimp, fried to a golden crisp and
they were really good. The other dish we shared was the
Anchors Aweigh Sandwich -
white tuna with lettuce and tomato on toasted multigrain bun plus it
came with a Bag of Chips.
We all chose the Apple Crisp
as our dessert and while it is pretty nice I still wish they would
serve it warm.
After lunch we got in line for one more ride in the Haunted
Mansion’s Doom Buggies, before we headed over to Pirates of the
Caribbean and a final ride on the Peoplemover. We still had a some
time left and instead of getting on another ride we decided to pick
up another drink and chat for a while before going home. So we
picked up another Raspberry
Lemonade Slush and some Diet Coke and sat at the back of Cosmic
Ray’s again, where there was lots of free tables.
Time just flew by and all too soon it was time to say our final
goodbyes to Mary Ellen and Joe. Tom and I headed to the front of the
park and over to our car and off we went to our ceremonial last
lunch at Walt Disney World, which we always have at Wolfgang Puck’s
Express. We were truly lucky to find a parking space really close to
the restaurant and headed over. None of our favourite cast members
there were working, but we had said our goodbyes before and so we
just ordered, picked up our drinks and found a table. . It did not
take long for our food to be delivered. Tom ordered the
Barbecued Chicken Pizza -
grilled red onion, cilantro and smokey barbecue sauce and I wanted
to try something new for us, the
Traditional Margherita Pizza
- with torn basil.
A very basic, cheese, tomato and basil pizza, but it was really
good. Needless to say we could not leave without dessert, so I went
with my all time favourite, the
Crème Brulee and Tom
ordered the Frozen Vanilla
Yogurt topped with Strawberries. Unfortunately once we had
finished our meal there wasn’t much time left and so we went to the
car and got out the bag with the change of clothes, then went to the
restrooms to get changed.
The shorts went into the packed luggage and off we went. The drive
to the airport was uneventful and all too soon we had to say goodbye
to our wonderful Camaro.
All our stuff was packed onto a cart and then we joined the line for
check in. Amazingly enough the line moved pretty quickly and we had
soon handed over our luggage and were free to look around the
airport. We browsed the shops and still had plenty of time to spare,
so when we saw a Krispy Kreme store we just could not resist and
walked over to place an order. Tom got some flavoured coffee, which
he deemed undrinkable and he was right - that stuff was not good!
And our order of Doughnuts
was equally horrible. They were hard and tasted like they had been
lying around there for days. Two bites later they met their fate in
the bin. There was nothing left to do for us, so we queued up for
security and walked into the departure area.
We browsed a little more and then found a seat to wait for our
flight to be called. Since there was wireless internet available we
checked our mail and then it was time to get on board. It took some
time until we left with a little delay, but once we had reached
cruising altitude we were handed some
Snacks and drinks.
Everyone was handed a small bag of crackers and Tom wanted some Diet
Coke and I had some water. We watched TV until dinner was served
about two hours into the flight. The plate looked nice, there was a
small Salad with some
Caesar dressing and our
main course was Pasta with 2
sauces. One was a creamy, cheesy mushroom sauce and the other a
sun dried tomato pesto. As always the pasta was a bit overcooked and
the sauces were a little bland, but we were not really hungry
anyway. For dessert we had a
Tiramisu like cake, which was nice, with a strong coffee
flavour. After the trays were cleared we both took some sleeping aid
pills and went off to dream about our Walt Disney World vacation.
