A Long Trip for ICE CREAM!!!–Friday–January 25, 2013
Every time Nancy and I come to Disney World, we go to Beaches and Cream for Ice Cream!!
It didn’t take much to convince everyone to join us;o))
We usually head to Beaches and Cream when we visit Epcot. You can walk there from the Epcot exit located between England and France. Since we were only spending one day at Epcot this trip, we decided not to take a couple ‘Epcot’ hours to go get ice cream. We would go today and stop at Downtown Disney on the way!! A nice easy day;o))
After lunch, we got the bus at the Outpost for Downtown Disney.
We visited the largest Disney Store!!
We played around a little!!
(click on any photo to enlarge)
The guys enjoyed the Legos and Tinker toys!!
Who doesn’t enjoy a Princess Parade?!?!
Notice the special Princess waves and the bubbles;o))
After exploring Downtown Disney, we headed to the bus stop.
Just needed to take the bus to the Beach Club!!
Sounds easy…doesn’t it;o))
First, we wait at least 30 minutes for the bus and then, we stopped at
The Yacht Club
we finally arrived at The Beach Club;o((
An hour and a half later, we were headed down the walkway to Beaches and Cream!!
We promptly ordered Sundays or Banana Splits.
Bruce got his ice cream first... along with a Song and a Birthday Balloon:o))
Of course, the Pelicans had to have Fries with their Ice Cream?!?!?
Everybody cleaned their plates!!!!
Remember that Birthday Balloon????
Bruce asked Gin to hold his SPECIAL balloon while he visit the rest room.
WELLLLLL…she watched it, but didn’t see the ceiling fan!!
You see how disappointed Bruce was;o))
But she couldn’t let the Birthday Boy walk around Balloonless…SOOOOOOO!!
Now he had three balloons ;o))
We headed back to the bus area and decided to take a direct bus to the Magic Kingdom instead of the long and tedious route that got us here;o( Once we got to the Magic Kingdom, we could catch the boat directly to the campground.
Notice anything different about Bruce’s Balloons?!?!
Yep, another busted balloon!!!
Bruce decided it was time to “Pay It Forward.”
He shared his balloons with the next Birthday Button person he saw;o))
We got to the Magic Kingdom without a hitch.
However, getting on the boat was a different story.
The boats were packed like sardines and we chose not to be one of them.
Instead we took the monorail to the Contemporary Resort!!
We walked down to the Resort boat launch and passed Mickey on the way:o))
Finally, we got on a boat back to the campground!!!!
Not sure you can tell, but the sun has just about set on this adventure.
We started just after lunch and about 6 hours later we found our way home.
What an adventure for ICE CREAM!!
However, the day was not over.
We decided that since we were at the beach,
we might as well stay to see the 8pm Magic Kingdom fireworks :o))
However, we weren’t finished yet…there is a 10pm Boat Parade!!
Everybody pull up a chair;o))
Break out the SNACKS!!!
Yes, there was one box of SPICED WAFERS left from the Carolina Clan gathering;o)))
During the long wait until the boat parade arrived,
we were entertained by our own GROOVY dancers!!
Come On Everybody and Do The LO-CO-MO-TION!!!!
Not sure which was better,
our GROOVY dancers or the Boat Parade?!?!
See what can happen when you just decide to get some ICE CREAM:o)))
