Florida Day 3

We made a tactical error on this trip. Thinking that we would fly all day Wednesday and then hit the ground running on Thursday was a mistake. Both Sharon and Jack slept very late on Thursday morning. It was after 9:30 a.m. before they got up. We had a quick breakfast and then headed back for another run at the Magic Kingdom.

We covered a little more ground than the previous day. We rode the Indy Speedway, The Many Adventures of Winny the Pooh (again), Ariel's Grotto, Cindrella's Golden Carrousel, The Haunted Mansion (Sharon and I separately on a fastpass), the World Railroad, Liberty Square Riverboat, Swiss Family Treehouse (twice), The Magic Carpets of Aladdin (twice), The Pirates of the Caribbean (me only), Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (me only) and Mickey's Toontown Fair. Jack did better than yesterday, but was still very tentative about the rides.

About 5:30 p.m., we hurried back to the hotel, picked up the rental car and headed to Downtown Disney. The Downtown Disney in California in a pale imitation of the Orlando version; the Orlando version is 5 to 10 fold larger. It has a wide variety of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. There is even a Cirque du Soleil show.

We had dinner at Wolfgang Puck's Cafe upstairs in the dining room. Sharon and I split lamb chops and a new york strip steak. The restaurant is at the west end. After dinner, we wandered the length of Downtown Disney going in and out of a few shops and doing some shopping. By the time, we got back to the room and got Jack down for bed it was almost 11:30 p.m.
