Thursday September 20
Today we started the day with breakfast at Trattoria al Forno at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort. It was delicious. And the atmosphere was great. It was nice to get to meat one of the princes as well. That is relatively new for Disney, so I am happy that we were able to experience that.
We then took the boat to Hollywood Studios and spent the day there. We rode all of our favorite rides again but sadly, we came out of Rockin’ Roller Coaster to a typical Florida afternoon downpour. Naturally, I had no umbrella or poncho and I had my camera in my bag. Thankfully, BFF Alysha came to the rescue and had an extra poncho. We walked to a covered food stand and waited out the worst of it. Naturally, we had to get a Mickey pretzel and Churro for the break. We debated powering through the rain to make our fast pass at Tower of Terror or just sit and wait it out. Tower of Terror won, duh.
We had dinner at Hollywood Brown Derby and I wish I could say it was the best thing ever. But it really was nothing special. We had eaten there before and it was really good. Now the menu is just sad and the food is nothing special.
After dinner, we went to make our fast pass at Slinky Dog and my dad got to ride it for the first time. This ride is so much fun! No, it is not a thrill coaster, but it is still so much fun. I love it so much already.
After dinner, Jake and I were exhausted so we headed back for an early night.

Today was the last day for my lovely cousins from Cali. We met at their resort to say goodbye and hang out one last time before they had to leave for the airport. It was so nice to be able to spend this week with them and catch up.
The rest of the was super chill for us. We went to Disney Springs and walked around a bit. Holy shit that area has changed SO much since I was there last. I had no clue where I was. The changes are insane and we didn’t even see it all.
Dinner was a double date night for Me, Jake, Alysha, and Zach. We went to the California Grill at the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It was amazingly good. And the atmosphere was incredible.

This was our last day. Sad Face. We all met for breakfast at Cape May Cafe. Breakfast buffets at Disney are the best. After breakfast, we went back to Studios because I love the shops there and we had some money left to spend.
So we went and hung out for a bit. Got to meet some pretty classic characters and explore a galaxy far, far away.
After our shopping and fun, we headed back to our hotel to catch the magical express and head to the airport. Sadly our Disney vacation had come to an end…but here’s to 2022!
