Blogging from Orlando - Day 6

Ahh....some rest. This was our "nothing" day.


Not a whole heck of a lot of anything
  • Even though we had nothing planned for the day, we had to get up early and hear the obligatory time-share spiel. Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada,, we're not buying, no we're not upgrading, whatever. Give me my $75 in Disney Dollars, please. Thank you.

  • After spending the day relaxing in the room, we visited a new place on the Disney property, Disney's Boardwalk. This is a nice area near the BoardWalk Resort featuring shops, restaurants and nightlife entertainment with a New England/Coney Island theme. It's a little similar to Downtown Disney, the larger shopping/eating area a few blocks away, but not so flashy and, um, frantic. Low-key, with old time charm and entertaining jugglers, magicians and rolling pianists creating atmosphere. Had a great dinner at Big River Grille & Brewing Works, strolled along the boardwalk and, due to its proximity to Epcot, watched Illuminations again from behind the buildings in between the properties.

  • A very nice, low-key, restive day.

  • Made contact with my buddy Gary who will be getting in town tomorrow evening. And we'll be getting together then. His brother Phillip, aka "The Beast" will arrive on Thursday and filming on our new movie will begin.

Tomorrow: Back to the parks! And not a moment too soon!
