Pauls Florida diary Day 2. Evening
Break time…. evening on day 2
Next just had to be the Simpsons ride this is a really great ride I reckon its one of the best in the park the lines were not too long and soon we were in the air-conditioned building and onto the ride and it really is a great ride. During the ride you get popped into Maggie’s mouth and you can smell the baby powder!
Soon as we finished the ride we just had to go to the Duff Brewery and see the duff Man and across the way was Moe’s just like the one in the TV show I half expected to see Moe coming out of the door.
Time was creeping on now we had been on our feet now for 8 hours and so we decided that we would head to the transformers ride now this was new since last time any of us last visited so we were not sure what it would be like but joined the queue despite it saying 20 minutes wait I can tell you it was a whole lot longer than that.
But the wait was well worth it this ride was very similar to the Spiderman ride but on a bigger scale with you getting thrown around lot more, well all loved it and it was well worth the wait.
We decided that was enough for our first day and it was now gone 6pm and so time for a little light shopping in City walk and to get some dinner as Bubba Gump was on our list of places to eat we decided to make our way there.
As with all eateries they were pretty busy but we were seated within 20 minutes of putting our name down, as this was our first visit to Bubba Gump’s we all opted for our souvenir glasses (you get a fancy glass with your drink and get to keep it) although this costs a bit more money that you would imagine it was a one off and so thought it would be a nice reminder to take home.
The menu at Bubba gumps is great with as you might think lots of shrimp and seafood etc, Will chose the Shrimp feast and I chose the Jambalaya which I have to say was excellent, Karlie had fish and chips, Shirley had crab stuffed shrimp with Monterey jack cheese and jasmine rice, also delicious and Wills plate of assorted shrimp and fries was very impressive! Bubba Gump’s use a unique system with Car registration plates a blue one not to hassle you and a red one for any bubba Gump employees to stop by your table to see what you need.
After our first beer ran out we turned over the plates to red and within seconds a server turned up and took our order, brilliant! The food and service were very good one of the best places we ate all holiday.
Time for home and bed after a very busy first day on vacation.
I hope you have enjoyed day 2 of our holiday, day 3 coming soon!
