Disney World Diary 2014: Day #2
Welcome back everyone! Sorry about the lack of postage. It turns out being on holiday gets very very busy, so I postponed my diary until I could come home and edit pictures properly, hope you don't mind!
For our second day we decided to rest our tired bones and head to Blizzard Beach - one of Disney's waterparks. We were a bit tired from jetlag and a full day at Magic Kingdom, so a bit of relaxation (and fun!) at Blizzard Beach was welcomed.
We managed to get to Blizzard Beach for 10am and found sun loungers easily. As someone who has only ever visited Blizzard Beach at midday, this was a welcome surprise. We immediately hit up the lazy river, my personal favourite part of Blizzard Beach as a non swimmer. Beforehand, I bought myself a waterproof iPhone case from the brand "OverBoard" and let me tell you... it served me so well. It was so nice to get some pictures in the water and at only something like £20, I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it.
After drifting around the river, we hit up the wave pool and then headed for some quick service lunch.
We both had pepperoni pizza (both me and rose are huge pizza addicts!) and really enjoyed it, but my gosh is it bad for you. It was literally dripping with grease, which I know would put ALOT of people off. After lunch we decided to check out the rides. I don't go on them as a non swimmer and Rose only likes the tame ones, so in the end we only did the family raft ride which was a lot of fun! We actually ended up doing it twice and met the loveliest family from Miami on our second go.
After that, I grabbed myself a sand pail from the Disney Tourist Blogs recommendation. Seriously, for 2 people. this giant bucket of brownie, wafer, caramel, chocolate sauce and ice cream, with sprinkles and cherries, was waaaay too much. We struggled, especially when a flock of wasps (I say flock... it was one wasp..) decided to join us. It was lovely though, but eat fast because as soon as it melts, the fun is sucked right out of it. Also probably share with more than one other person, this bad boy could probably feed 6!
After the wasp incident we headed home but it was about 3pm and we had dinner reservations that night. We got back to the room, quickly got ready and made our way to Downtown for some shopping and dinner at House of Blues. If you read my last Disney World Diary, you will know my love for this place knows no limits. We indulged in a cocktail (which no joke, got me drunk it was so alcoholic) and enjoyed the atmosphere. HoB has such a cool vibe to it, everyone is chilled and while its always busy, it seems relaxing and casual. I decided on the blackened salmon for dinner and Rose went for a full rack of ribs (I know, crazyness right?!) The salmon was divine as always, I am never disappointed. Even Rose as someone who doesn't enjoy fish liked it! It came with garlic mash potato and seasonal veggies and it killed me that I couldn't eat it all!! Rose needless to say couldn't eat all of her ribs, but said they were the best she had ever tasted. After grimacing through our cocktails (SO ALCOHOLIC) we had dessert. I had the ever so beautiful chocolate cheesecake and Rose had mousse. Seriously, you gotta try that chocolate cheesecake. It killed me I had to leave some behind!

After wandering around Downtown, soaking in the nightlife and checking out some shops (and stopping for pins for Rose along the way) and taking lots of photos, we decided to head back. It was half 11 and we were exhausted, even after our supposed "relaxing day". The saying "you will need a vacation from this vacation" is so so true.
