Today started off with a trip to Posner Park (a retail park) for a spot of shopping at Michael’s. A much needed craft supply stock up was in order, as well as checking out and buying some new Halloween decorations!

Posner Park is in Davenport – maybe about a 20-30 minute drive from Walt Disney World?  There are quite a lot of stores there including a Target, JC Penny’s, Ross, and a Dollar Store.

If you are into arts and crafts, it is well worth stopping by Michael’s as it is heaven for creative people! Here are a bunch of pictures of the Halloween decorations as they are so much more awesome than ones in the UK!

After our spend up, we went and picked my brother Chris, and his [now wife] Meg and headed over to Hollywood Studios for the afternoon. Today was their last full day in Orlando, so we were all feeling a bit down about it – the two weeks they had with us had gone by really quickly!

The clouds were not looking too friendly by the time we parked up and entered the park, but we carried on regardless! Rain is an inevitable part of a holiday to Orlando and Walt Disney World, so you have to just roll with it.

Unfortunately, because of my scooter situation, it makes it a bit more difficult as you are not supposed to get them wet. We were deciding what to do when the first rain drops started to appear – we dashed into the nearest place to get out of the rain, which happened to be ABC Commissary. Everyone was hungry so it actually suited quite well! A lot of other people had the same idea, so it was pretty crowded, but Meg and I managed to find a table while the boys went and got some food.
