Today we get to have a lay in... as we don't need to leave for breakfast until 7:30... wey hey...!!! We opted for Golden Corral again and, unlike yesterday, managed to find the place... it was actually open... and we didn't get separated on the way... plus, for the first time so far this holiday, we had breakfast after the sun had come up...!!! As you've probably guessed (those who know us), we ate too much again... the excuse for which is we fill up with our buffet breakfast, have just a snack during the day while we're in the parks, then have a dinner in the evening! This is all very good in theory but the reality of it all is that we just eat too much...!!!

When we arrive at Hollywood Studios Margaret is already waiting for us (Haley & Tom are going to Typhoon Lagoon today) and we head straight off for "Toy Story Mania" as this is one of the busiest attractions in the park... and it's only twenty minutes or so to wait. From there we strolled round to The Hollywood Tower Hotel to ride the thirteen storey drop on "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror", so glad we didn't do this one first so soon after breakfast! Mandy & Daisy whimped out on this one, while our latest roller coaster/extreme ride queen, Elaine, was leading us into the dark depths of this forboding ride...!!! Once we'd caught our breath it was round the corner to "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster" to join Aerosmith in their stretched limo ride.

As we were only doing about half a day here, and then going shopping at Florida Mall afterwards, we split up after this so we could rush around the couple of other rides we wanted to do and get off to the shops. The others stayed at the park until about three o'clock before going for a "Kitchen Sink" mega ice cream at Beaches & Cream next to Epcot. As soon as we said our au revoirs we dashed back onto "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster" before having to leg it to be on time to see the "Beauty and the Beast" show, followed by "The Great Movie Ride" and finally "Star Tours" for Elaine & Elise.
 
We then drove over to Florida Mall and spent a very pleasant couple of hours wandering and spending our way around it. The three of us all managed to find some goodies to hit our bank balances with before having to head for Hampton Lakes. This journey should have only taken about thirty minutes but, thanks to drivers rubbernecking an accident on the north bound side of the interstate some five miles ahead of us, we took nearly three times that long to get there. Just what we needed after a long day of having fun. The others got back an hour and a half or so after us, and after a bit of a chat and relaxation it was off to our beds for some much needed sleep. It's blinking hard work all this holidaying and shopping m'larky... you lot out there just don't realise...!!!
