Day 7, August 09
Lazy day gone busy - Part 2
And a few minutes later we found ourselves getting off the ride and we decided to just leave the park and go back to Kidani.
On the way to the exit
we came across a sweets shop which really was interesting
and then we hit Starbucks for the “usual” drinks, the
Iced Caramel Macchiato and the Iced Black Tea Lemonade. We sipped our drinks while heading towards the exit, where we got on the next tram out to the parking lot and then we took the long hike back to our car. It was boiling inside the car and while we stood beside it we decided that we wanted to get a treat that we had not had yet, even though we had been at Walt Disney World for about a week. We needed to get some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. So off we went to Krispy Kreme and on the way there we passed a KFC and since there is none in our area we decided that we would pick up some for our late lunch. Once we had made it to Krispy Kreme we decided to get a few glazed doughnuts and to get a few of their speciality ones as well.
We did not stop to have some on the spot, but brought it back to the car to have after lunch. Then we turned around, went back to KFC and got ourselves some lunch, which went into the boot of the car as well and back we went to Kidani. During the day it was pretty easy to find parking close to the elevator and we grabbed our lunch and went up to our room. There we got some potato salad and coleslaw out of the fridge, opened a Ceasar salad kit and then put our KFC goodies on the table.
We had bought the Tenders and Wedges for 2,
Large Wedges, and two sauces and it was just the perfect amount of food for the two of us. Once we had finished our main course, Tom made some coffee and we shared some of the speciality doughnuts.
While we were having lunch a Florida rain shower had started and we just took a break, downloading our photos and relaxing in front of the telly. At around 5pm we went back down to the car to drive over to the Beach Club for a sweet afternoon treat. The rain had stopped and after a nice short drive we arrived at the resort, parked the car and headed inside and over to Beaches and Cream. We signed in and were told that it would be a short 15 minute wait and we were handed a buzzer and told to roam anywhere within the Beach and Yacht Club. We decided not to walk away too far, so we just walked inside the Yacht Club and found a seat. It did not take too long and our buzzer went off and we went back to Beaches and Cream and were led into the restaurant and seated at one of the small center tables.
Menu in hand we tried to figure out what we wanted to try. The server put some ice-water on the table and we placed our order and pretty soon our treats were delivered.
Tom had decided on trying the
Grilled Banana Bread and Peanut Butter, with Caramelized Bananas, Whipped Cream, and a Scoop of Ice Cream while I wanted to try the
Brownie a la Mode, A gooey, chewy Brownie, Hot Fudge, and Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Whipped Cream, Chocolate Sprinkles, and a Cherry on top. Both dishes were really good, but then they were really sweet as well and we both did our best to make a dent into them, but we failed miserably. We both had to leave around half of our desserts behind. We should have just shared one. Once we were had paid our bill we walked out to Cresent Lake
and enjoyed the stroll along its shore over to the International Gateway. There were Extra Magic Hours at Epcot that day and we still had two and half hours of regular park time. So, when we had entered the park we went to the left and strolled through England and then over to Canada.
There was a geocache to find there and we looked around the gardens,
enjoying it, then went back to the waterfall
and left towards the Chateau Frontenac,
going through the shops and looking at merchandise. Canada discovered we walked toward the front of the park, but we could not walk by the stand that sells the Canadian beer. Tom got himself a
Moosehead and we found a bench nearby to just sit down and people watch while he enjoyed his drink.
