ChrismaCruise Days 10-11

January 10th, 2013 . by Melissa

Day 10 – We said our goodbyes to the Carnival Liberty and then jumped in the car and drove 3.5 hours from Miami to Orlando. That evening everyone else went to see Les Mis, while we (and Jason’s mom) took the kids to Downtown Disney. It was insanely crowded and there was basically no parking. However, we managed to find our way to the Lego store and Jack was in heaven. Grandma let him pick out one thing at the store. He went RIGHT to this Cars set and wouldn’t let go of the box.

Day 11 – Let me preface this blurb by saying: I have never read the Harry Potter Series. I have never seen the movies (though I have seen the previews!)  Today we visited Harry Potter Land, excuse me, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And though I was stuck right in the middle of an inside joke that I wasn’t in on, it was still very cool! Universal did a great job of theming the place with the shops and rides. Everything looked awesome and was really well done. Trent was picked by Olivander (did I spell that right?) to be matched up with his perfect wand. This is a really big deal to Harry Potter fans.  The only downside, the whole park was packed with people. At moments you couldn’t move down the walkways because there were people jams, sometimes lasting 3 minutes or more. There were 15 minute lines to go the bathroom. Sheesh!

Day 12 – On our last day of vacation we slept in, ate a big breakfast, played mini-golf and then said our goodbyes. The goodbyes were really sad.

 

We had so much fun spending good quality time with family!!!!
