We were again woken, this time at 8.30am by the neighbours (the shift worker reckoned we have to get our body clocks to local time!!) Air New Zealand has a lot to answer for.
Off to Downtown Disney, a 10 walk from the hotel. A few boutique style clothing and fashion shops, Bearville (where you can make your own teddybear), ESPN shop, Ridemakersz (make your own remote control car), Rainforest Café with attached jungle themed products shop
Had planned on a couple of hours there but five hours later we ambled back with a taste of the wonderland that is Disney, and an armful of parcels.
Was a little overcast when we left this morning but sun was out by the time we got back so kids went for a swim for an hour before getting ready for Medieval Times dinner and show.
We took the scenic route (apparently the GPS was at fault!!) but eventually arrived at the arena and were placed in the green corner to support the green Knight in the jousting tournament. We thought the kids would love it and they did. Clapping and cheering each time out knight did anything or went past our corner, while drinking our soup out of the bowl and eating our half chicken, couple of potato wedges and a spare rib with our fingers – knives and forks weren’t an option, no wonder the kids loved it!! The best part was our knight was the victor, not that we are competitive!!
When we left the venue, parked outside was a nine metre limo (yes the quantity surveyor amongst us stepped it out!!). The driver was waiting outside and he opened it up for us to have a look in. Seats 20 people, background neon lighting very cool. Next trip we need another couple of families so we can justify upgrading the ‘A Team’ van.
Home for a swim and team meeting in the spa where we watched the Disneyland fireworks. Serious shopping day tomorrow.
