I had to work the first Sunday (4th) this month which put me working 4 twelve hour shifts. It wasn't that big of a deal because I use to do that at UF and I was off for 5 days. I didn't plan much for the week because I knew working the extra shift was going to make me extra tired. Tuesday's (6th) date day we just went to the Florida Mall and had dinner at Shake Shack. We have been wanting to try it because it reminds us of M Shack in Jacksonville but unfortunately it was no where near as good. Oh well, at least we can say that we tried it. Wednesday (7th) Bryan had an ultrasound scheduled so we spent most of the afternoon at the hospital. He had a neck ultrasound to see if any of his thyroid is still there. Friday (9th) I had a sleep conference in Melbourne that our hospital hosts. It was only half a day and the speakers were really good. After the conference our department went to Longhorn for lunch.
On the 13th we went to Epcot. Right now the Flower and Garden Festival is in full swing. I have always wanted to see this festival and it did not disappoint. We got to Epcot late; around 1530 so I knew we weren't going to have time to see everything so we just took our time. First thing I did though was pick up one of two passholder magnets.
Then we walked around and enjoyed the topiaries.
We also met Alice at the English garden.
Just like the food & wine festival there are special food stands. We tried a few dishes. This is burnt ends pork belly slider.
We also enjoyed the pork slider, shrimp & grits, and scallops. I don't eat scallops so I enjoyed the canadian cheddar soup from Refreshment Port.
We had a fastpass for Test Track at the end of the evening. But it was extra magic hours so after we rode TT we walked around World of Showcase one more time and took night pictures of the topiaries.
There were a few that we missed but we'll catch those when we go back next month.
On the 20th we went to Magic Kingdom for our much anticipated lunch at Be Our Guest!! I was so excited. The weather was suppose to be terrible but we only had plans to eat, ride Pirates, then leave. While walking to BOG we stopped and had pictures. I love this one that the photographer did. It's suppose to look like a selfie.
We got to the restaurant and for lunch it's more like a quick service. We ordered at a kiosk then found a table. There are three themed rooms; the ballroom, west wing, and Beasts room.
We ate in the west wing mainly because there were more seating available.
Bryan ordered the Croque Monsieur with french onion soup and I ordered the french dip with the master's cupcake. They forgot to bring out Bryan's soup and for his wait they also brought him the masters cupcake.
All in all the ambience was great. We really felt like we were eating in the Beast's castle. The food was good but not fantastic. It was just sandwiches. I would love to try dinner there but it is so hard to get reservations.
While inside eating a bad storm came up. It was raining when we headed over to Pirates of the Caribbean. Also much of the walkways had standing water. We mainly wanted to ride Pirates because they had just opened back up with the new auction scene. I think they did a nice job.
After pirates we decided to leave. The weather wasn't great and it had turned off a little chilly. We decided to head over to a new neighborhood that we found on the Realtor website. The houses looked nice and we were interested in one in particular. We toured both models and then looked at the one that we liked online. We really fell in love with the floorplan. The neighborhood is new and only 5 houses out of the 48 have been built so we'll keep an eye out on it. The agent we met also wants to be our agent. She seemed nice and I think she'll be able to help us. This house was in Kissimmee and I would like to look at a few more before making any decisions. I would also like to look in Saint Cloud.
The last Tuesday of the month we decided to go to Universal's CityWalk. We got our BOGO tickets from AT&T for Black Panther. We also wanted to eat at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium. When we got to CityWalk it was so crowded. We had completely forgotten that it was spring break. It was miserable. We ended up not being able to eat at TCE because it was an 80 minute wait and we were afraid that we would miss the movie. So we were able to get into Margaritaville pretty quick. Bryan said his burger was good but my club sandwich was mediocre. The service was very slow. I have not been impressed with this restaurant when we go.
The movie was really good. It was a little more crowded in the theater than we liked and I was quite shocked when someone brought their newborn baby into a 2230 movie. I swear young parents have absolutely no sense at all. Its a good thing they sat all the way in the back cause I would not have dealt with a disruption.
That's it for March!
