By the 7th day at Disney we needed another refreshing day away from the heat, so we headed to the Blizzard Beach waterpark to spend the day swimming. Unfortunately we were only there for about 2 hours before the rain, thunder, and lightening forced them to close the park so we ate a quick lunch then headed back to the resort. Everyone showered, did a little coloring, watched a bit of TV, and rested for a few minutes before we took the bus to Downtown Disney to eat dinner, do some shopping, spend all of our leftover snack credits, and have some fun playing games for a few hours at Disney Quest.
While we were at dinner Steph started to not feel well and went to the bathroom to throw up. When she came back to the table she laid on my lap, took a quick nap, and woke up feeling better. I think the heat and all the walking finally got to her.
We walked over to this huge candy store and spent the last of our 17 snack credits from the meal plan on special treats to take home. Then we walked the Downtown Disney strip going into a bunch of stores and checking out the huge Lego sculptures. Along the way there was a stage and a guy who was playing kids music and getting all the kids in the audience to stand up and dance along. Jen was all for it and got right up in the front row to do the chicken dance, the Cha-Cha slide, and head, shoulders, knees and toes. It was soooo cute!
After that we went to Disney Quest where we spent a few hours playing games and riding the virtual rides. At about 9:30 PM Jen got tired and wanted to head back to the room so Grannie and I split up from Ron and Steph and headed back. We decided to take the water taxi back to the room instead of the bus, which took about 35 - 40 minutes and was a really relaxing ride. We got jammies on and headed to bed. Ron and Steph got back at about 11:30 PM and they had taken the water taxi back too.
Since I didn't take my camera to the water parks, the Blizzard Beach pics below are all from Disney Photopass photographers.
And these are some shots we took later that day:
