Downtown Disney

Hello again! I should have posted this two days ago but Wi-Fi was spotty in Kissimmee, Florida. So, you get two posts today! One of the families we met at our resort suggested we try Downtown Disney if we weren’t planning on going to the parks but wanted to get a bit of Disney flavour. Free parking and a few neat things to see, on top of having a cold day where we couldn’t swim, sold us on the idea. I won’t go into a long story about it. Rather, I’ll tell the tale in pictures. Enjoy!

World's largest Disney store. I could have spent hours in here.

I think one of the best parts of the store was the ‘magic mirror’. So cute!

Once we finally got my daughter out of the store we made our way over to the Legoland they had there. What a great place!

After legoland we saw a huge hot air balloon which offered rides for $18 a piece. We didn’t go on but I got a neat picture of it.

And of course, there were birds. This guy was hanging out under the pier.

There were so many cool stores. I think this was my favourite but we didn’t have time to go in. If we ever come back, I’m definitely going in and getting a specialty candied apple!

DStreet looked interesting, but by this time it was getting too cold and near dinnertime. Got a couple pictures of the outside anyway.

On our way out, we passed Ghiradelli and I just had to go in. Glad I did, because they were giving out free samples of their peppermint chocolate squares! Yummy!

The T-Rex restaurant looked interesting but again, we were heading out. So, I took pictures. Very cool.
