Last Day In Florida

3 07 2018

This is our last day in Florida and the last day of our vacation.  It has been a great vacation but I am also anxious to get back home.

After breakfast we finished packing, left our bags at the Disney Springs Resort and went back to Epcot.

There, four of us designed cars and tested the design in a head to head competition.  The car my youngest daughter and I designed, actually she did most of the work, won.

After that we road the Finding Nemo ride.  I had a beautiful companion for the ride.

After you get off the ride you can walk around the various tanks in the aquarium.  I could spend hours watching fish swim around.

Afer we left Epcot for the last time this trip, we went and had lunch at the Whispering Canyon Cafe.  This is definitely NOT the place to go if you want a quite lunch.  It is quite noisy.  If you drink your soda or water too quickly out of the mason jar, they bring you an EXTRA LARGE mason jar of your beverage.

If you order something and you need ketchup, your entire table yells “WE NEED KETCHUP”  The folks at the previous table that yelled that then bring over all the bottles of ketchup from their table.

Of course my daughter had to build a tower out of the ketchup bottles.

 

 

 

 

 

During our lunch they held a pony parade.  Yes two of my “adult” daughters rode stick ponies around the restaurant with other “kids”.

After lunch we went back to Disney Springs to do some shopping and to stock up on snacks for the plane ride back home.  Two of my amazing daughters tried on dresses and my oldest bought the Minnie Mouse dress she tried on.

 

This is the last blog entry for our 2018 Cruise and Disney World vacation.  This is the first time I have done travel blog.  I kind of enjoyed the experience.  I learned a few things along the way and have made some new online friends.

During this vacation I ended up going through many different metal detectors.  Getting back on the ship and entered Disney World are the main times.  I learned awhile back that if I didn’t want a personal pat down from a TSA agent, I wanted to use the x-ray machine rather than the metal detector.  Having two metal knees, a metal hip and pins in my foot mean that more often than not I will set off a metal detector.  A couple of times getting back aboard ship as well as a majority of the time entering Disney World, I did NOT set off the metal detectors.  I didn’t mind NOT have to undergo the special “wand treatment.”  But I have to wonder who calibrates those things?  If I had carried my swiss army knife, or even my larger knife would they have gone off?  Maybe for me with the other metal in my body but what if my wife had carried one of those in?  I don’t want to try that as an experiment as I don’t want to lose the knife but it makes you wonder what folks are actually getting through the detectors with.

Until next time…
