Where I stayed
last night in the giant villa
First ride we went on was a water coaster called Crush N’Gusher. It was pretty good fun, and the only water slide I’ve ever been on that actually goes up. As at Aquatica, with Russ and I in one tube we can get some serious speed and air on the jumps.
One thing I didn’t know about Typhoon Lagoon is that it has huge wave pool. I didn’t really know what to expect until a 9ft wave pounded itself towards me at what seemed like 100 miles an hour. This thing absolutely knocks you for six, and after a few of them, I decided that actually, the shallow end was somewhere I was more comfortable in. Russ on the other hand was doing handstands and diving through them like no tomorrow. Quite frankly, I pussed out
The rest of the day was spent having a leisurely float around Castaway Creek, and having our 'crown jewels’ pounded to dust on the300ft Humunga Kowabunga. It was seriously hot today, and when I was in the Line to order food I literally thought I was going to keel over. No burning though,seeing as I’m currently 90% suncream.
After Typhoon Lagoon we had a stroll around Downtown Disney.We encountered the biggest Lego shop I’d ever seen. You could replace any lego bit you care to have lost there. I was disappointed that there wasn’t a Lego Buzz Lightyear keyring. You could get a Woody one, but who wants a Woody anyways ?
We went and had a beer in Planet Hollywood. Some of the memorabilia that they have in there is awesome. We saw Freddy Krueger’s real glove, hat and shirt, a lazer pistol from the first Star Wars, and the frozen Sly Stallone from Demolition Man. All the original stuff, and was very impressive.
Its our last night in Florida tonight, so we’re just going to mooch around, have an early night and get ourselves ready for the flight to Chicago and my first baseball game tomorrow.
