Florida November 2015 Recap - Day 4 Outlet Shopping

I'll be doing a recap for each and every glorious day of our last Disney vacation (14 days worth so in the words of Scar, be prepared)...

Friday was the first day we spent outside the parks, and as much as we love love loved Disneyworld it was a welcome break away from the crowds and sore feet. We started the day off with a trip to iHop for some breakfast, and as it was quite busy we were seated at the breakfast bar like American truckers! 

It was pretty cool sitting at the breakfast bar as we got to see the mountains of pancakes and bacon being cooked up. We were loaded up with coffee and enjoyed eggs, hash browns, American bacon, double chocolate chip pancakes and nutella crepes! 

Satisfied that we'd eaten more than our bodies could handle, we waddled out of the diner and hopped on the shuttle down to the outlet shopping centre. If you've never been outlet shopping in Orlando I cannot recommend it enough. They offer discounts that you just can't get in the UK and depending on the time of year there are often special events offering further reductions. Anyone that knows Carly and I know that we live for a good bargain so this place was like heaven to us. We got some b-e-a-utiful Kate Spade handbags, matching pink trainers,make up, clothes, etc.

Basically we bought far too much and had about seventy shopping bags each, which paired with our iced coffees made us look like the whitest white girls to ever grace the Earth. So much so in fact that we caught an older Hispanic couple taking photos of us struggling with all our stuff.

It's also worth noting that the outlet centre has a Disney store which is great for picking up Disney trinkets and souvenirs without the hefty price tags. After we had exhausted ourselves shopping we headed back to the hotel to dump our bags before going back out for dinner and cocktails. I also had to change my outfit because I'm literally the clumsiest person in the world and had spilled various things down myself throughout the day. For dinner we decided on Chili's because I'd been craving their honey chipotle chicken crispers since my last visit a year and a half before, and also because they have a 24/7 happy hour!

I really want to say that we hopped from bar to bar and had a wild Friday night...but in truth we once again ate so much that we had to go back to the hotel for a lie down...we ended the night eating sweets and watching trash TV in our wee twin beds - 23 going on 83!

¡Por favour manténgase alejado de las puertas!
