Disneyworld Diary: Day #9

Today we decided to head to the Boardwalk - we had heard so much about Disney's Boardwalk, but had never actually been. So we grabbed a bus over to Epcot and took the boat over!

Tank top - H&M, Skirt - River Island, Sandals - Primark, Phone Case - Disney :)



 As soon as we got to the Boardwalk, we wondered why we had never been before?!  The pace is so much slower, with hardly any people and none of the busyness of Disneyworld. The shops are so quaint and as huge fans of Boardwalk Empire, we immersed ourselves into the 1920's! We headed over to the Boardwalk bakery and saw they did some lovely looking sandwiches and more importantly... cupcakes! All included as a quick service on our dining plan no less! We grabbed a seat overlooking the calm waters of the Boardwalk and dug in. The sandwiches were just yummy and not to mention huge! We could only manage half the cupcakes at the end of it all.





Coffee cupcake for the boyf!

And Strawberry Cupcake for me!


 Afterwards, we walked along the Boardwalk, peeked into a few shops and enjoyed some ice cream before getting the boat across to Hollywood Studios! A very nice afternoon overall, definitely check out the Boardwalk if you want an afternoon "off" from all the madness!
We had dinner reservations that night at the Sci Fi Drive in Diner but with a few hours beforehand, we explored Hollywood Studios and went on some of our favourite rides! 

Those resorts in the distance are the Yacht and Beach Club. We really liked the look of them when we went past on the boat and asked the captain when we got off about them. He highly recommended them and said they also have a really amazing restaurant. My boyfriend turned to me and said "next time we come, can we stay there?" Music to my ears! NEXT TIME!!

Views of the Boardwalk. You see those balconies? Those are actually rooms! I wasn't too sure about them to be honest, being so close to the Boardwalk I can imagine it would get noisy especially with all the boats hooting but they look really nice and what a location!



At Hollywood Studios there is an amazing short film about Walt's life with a little museum with lots of hidden treasures, facts and quotes. I especially liked seeing Walts office and hearing about his "dream" of Disneyworld, Disneyland and animation. So worth checking out, and I always leave with a slight tear in my eye.

The Sci Fi restaurant is pretty cool and something we probably wouldn't have even thought about before Charlottes recommendation! You are seated in a car booth, with a huge screen in front of you showing old school Sci Fi movies with the stars above you. Very cool indeed. Even though you share a car with other families, you don't actually share a table as such, so its still pretty intimate.



Both Richard and I went for the New York Strip steak with garlic mash and veggies, as the rest of the menu consisted of burgers and sandwiches. However, I did have a slight mishap. The restaurant itself is pretty dark, I mean, I couldn't even take photos of the food as it was so dark! I took a big old forkful of what I thought was mash, but actually turned out to be blue cheese which was supposed to be on top of the steak but actually had fallen to the side of mine. I really struggled to keep it down, it was incredibly strong and the taste remained in my mouth throughout the rest of meal!! I couldn't taste anything else, so I honestly couldn't tell ya if my meal was good or not! Richard enjoyed his though!
For dessert I went for the fudge sundae, which comes in a glass complete with cherry on top! Thankfully my taste buds had turned back to normal at this point so I could taste its deliciousness! Phew! 

My only gripe about the restaurant is how dark it is. Damn blue cheese being disguised as mash!

We finished our meal just in time to catch the Hollywood Studios show, Fantasmic! I am a huge fan of this show, which has Mickey Mouse battling against his nightmares! It has lights, fireworks and fountains and is really not to be missed! We got a fairly good seat considering how late we showed up and thoroughly enjoyed the show as always! 


Can you spot your favourite characters? :)


We grabbed some goodies from the bakery afterwards to try and miss the Fantasmic rush and took some night time pictures before getting a bus back which was thankfully empty! Its always worth waiting back just a little bit, grabbing a snack or taking some pictures even for 10 minutes, so the buses aren't so hectic on the way back. Nobody likes standing in a crowded bus for 20+ minutes :)

Amazing candy apples!

Goodnight Hollywood Studios! :)
