Took quite a while to pack. FILLED the Owner’s Locker tub up to the top and still had stuff left over. I’ll take out the dividers when we go back down and see if I can get it all in next time we’re there. I think we’ll have to get a second locker. I wanted to go over to Hollywood Studios to get an AP Limited Edition Star Wars pin for Chris at work, but we were just too late in leaving to make it over. Sorry, Chris.
The ride home started off nice enough. A little overcast in parts but the rain didn’t really come down until Pam started driving (as usual). I took a nap and then we drove until we needed fuel again. 43.7 mpg – gotta love it. Check out the little FUELLY widget on the side to see what my average MPG is. We stopped for the night at Holiday Express again. I didn’t tell the clerk that we wanted a regular room so . . . we got a suite. Only $10 more per night I think, and we were too tired to go back and argue.
Got a pretty good night’s sleep and we were back on the road at about 8:00am. Rolled home around 3:00pm and called to see if we could pick up Teddy, but there was no answer on the home phone so we left a message. Should have called the cell phone, boarder always has that one with her. Finally she called back around 6:00 and said to come on over and pick him up. He was glad to see us! Funny, but it didn’t take him long to zonk out on the floor . . . I guess the anxiety left him and he finally really relaxed. Also, with no other dogs to play with, I’m sure he felt like just winding down. That made THREE of us
Only 76 more days until next trip!
Today I decided that I should fuel up for tomorrow’s ride home so I didn’t have to look for a station selling diesel and could just get on the road. I had already stopped at the Hess station by the Boardwalk, but they didn’t sell diesel. I went online and there was a report of diesel prices for the Hess station at the Car Care Center by the Magic Kingdom. I’m sure that there is a place closer with lower prices, but I know where that station is so we headed out and sure enough, that Hess sells diesel fuel. Filled up and on the way back, we decided to drive over to Epcot and use our Fast Passes for Soarin’ that we got in our D23 packet on Sunday.
When we got into Epcot, we went on Ellen’s Energy Adventure (Stupid Judy, Stupid Energy). You can really tell they refurbed the sound in there. It’s been several years since we went on that attraction. We then went over and walked on Soarin’. We got the last row, so we were lowest. I don’t remember being in that row before. I really like the first row where you’re up high.
We decided to come home and have the leftovers from yesterday’s lunch at Olivia’s and then go over to the Magic Kingdom for the night. But once home, I started working on these posts again and Pam put on her bathing suit to hit the pool. I said I would be right behind her, but before I could even get changed, she was back saying there was a lot of thunder, so she’d read on our balcony.
AH . . . all caught up with posts. I’ll post an entry on the boards to point here for those that want to follow us, and then I’m going to join Pam on the balcony for a bit. I’ll catch you up later.
We’re using Owner’s Locker for the first time. They’ll deliver our new purple Locker right to Old Key West Resort and pick it up when we leave. Now we can store all the stuff we drag back and forth from Pennsylvania. It’ll be a great help, especially when we decide to fly down.
