One Final Day (Day 12-3/16)

At this point, it's our last day in the parks, but, we still had so much to do with so little energy left.  One of the bonuses of staying at Port Orleans Riverside is that you are just a short and beautiful walking path along the river to Port Orleans French Quarter.  I happened to love the Riverside resort.  The food was great and it was just the right size.  But, French Quarter has beignets...a cajun pastry that is like a little pillow of crispy pastry with powdered sugar sprinkled on top and you can dip it in chocolate or raspberry sauce.  Yum!  French Quarter also has a really great breakfast skillet where you can choose all of your own ingredients.  So good!  It was so nice to have two options for food and who doesn't need a little more walking in Disney, hahaha!

We never made it to Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), so, that was the priority for the day.  Another bonus of the Port Orleans resorts, you can take the boat down the river to Disney Springs!  We would have liked to have had more time, but, it was kind of a whirlwind visit.  The kids had some ice cream at Ghiradelli and we had lunch at Wolf Gang Puck's Express.  It was delicious.

Of course, we had to make some time to visit the Lego store.

I wasn't feeling well and Owen was just flat out done.  But, Dave and Liv wanted to hit the miniature golf one more time.  This time, they went to the Fantasia course.  Liv loved it!

We had some fast passes left to do in the evening.  Liv's first stop was with Tinkerbell while Dave and Owen did Seven Dwarfs again.

Dave and Liv got one more time in with the Buzz Light Year ride and Owen and I hit the Space Mountain ride.  The park was so packed though.  Even with a Fast Pass, we had a 40 minute wait.  We debated taking advantage of the bonus time, but, we were all so tired, nobody wanted to stay.  So, back to the hotel we went!
