30th July 2015 (Day 7) – Day Off the Parks

After a late night watching the fireworks at Epcot we had a late start and a “doing very little” day.  We’d also had 4 days in a row at the parks so needed to have a day off really.

We started with breakfast at Perkins on International Drive before going on to the outlets at the very top of I-Drive.

Had a look around the various shops and got some things, although nothing very much.  Just chilled out and took it easy. Maybe a bit too easy, or maybe just bored.

For the evening we went to Disney Springs and had dinner at T-Rex.  The queues (even though it was early) were already big with 30-40 minute waits for tables.  We were offered to eat at the bar though and decided to take this option.  Was actually quite a nice spot to eat and Rosemary liked it because she felt grown up on the big barstools.

Rosemary had a pizza, which was really cheesy and very tasty.

Afterwards we went to the Build-A-Dino store which is at the back of T-Rex Cafe.  It’s basically Build-A-Bear where you choose an unstuffed teddy bear, have it stuffed and then choose clothes for it.  The twist here is they are all dinosaurs.  As this is (almost) unique to Disney Springs we thought we’d give it a go.  Rosemary chose a pink dino who was named Orlando.

Afterwards she was introduced to the other dinosaurs.
