"It's a beautiful night & we're looking for something dumb to do.. Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you" ... Love a bit of Bruno Mars as our new day song to start week two of Florida.
Animal Kingdom was next on the agenda.. Yipppeeee.. Unfortunately no princesses here but Mickey Mouse in a safari outfit and lots of animals! Mummy (Josie) and my first stop was 'it's tough to be a bug' ..really good 3D film about bugs! And that's not even sarcasm.. We then did a dinosaur ride that almost made us both cry.. I honestly think Walt Disney wanted to punish humans and make them cry in as many ways possible. And he's succeeding! It was very very scary.. The rest of the day we seen lots of animals, went on a mini safari, watched the safari Disney parade and the grand finale was watching the Lion King's festival of life... It was amazing!!! I loved it.. There was a guy in it that had the most amazing speaking voice. I'm telling you if he'd called my phone and told me he was god I would've believed him. He is how I picture god to talk!! There was also an extremely irritating girl sat behind us who kept singing and guess where she was from... Only bloody Newport. I didn't actually confirm this with her but the accent told me loud and clear!
Home time, during the bus journey home we had a conversation about our plans for the evening.. It was pretty clear that we both wanted to head out. So universal it was again. As we walked to universal, I got a little bit excited singing "on my own" from glee before swinging my arms around and smacking Josie in the face.. Ooooops.. Hoping she doesnt get a black eye! After almost wetting myself laughing I did feel terrible, for 5 minutes maybe!
We sat outside in universal and consumed a slush amaretto and pineapple cocktail.. It was lush! It went down extremely nicely! A guy called Roy approached us, an old old man who asked if i wanted ballroom dancing lessons and gave me his card.. Looking at the card, he is 100% a male escort! The cheek of it!! We then met a couple, a welsh guy and English girl.. They had a drink with us before we headed to the Karaoke Bar again. The karaoke bar is a little bit of a blur, although I do remember Josie putting my name down again and me refusing to get up and the whole bar shouting my name! I was not impressed in the slightest! The real stroppy Liz came out this time..!
In the morning, our alarms went off and we ignored them! Ally Pally woke us, but before going to chill at his pool we skyped the lovely dan and Suz to update them with all the latest gossip, which I knew they were excited to here. We also skyped Tomathy, in which he now has a shaved head and looks preeeeety hot!
Ally (he loves that nickname) picked us up in the auto mobile and we stopped at whole foods to get something to eat.. Now I need you all to prepare yourselves.... FIFTEEN dollars for a supermarket salad!! I am officially scarred, that I've had to pay $15 to not get fat!! Fuming! Especially when they sell pizza for $2.. They just like fat people I'm sure of it!
After that, we chilled by the Edwards' pool with a surprise visit from Santa Claus, well an obese monster Santa that was rubbing sun cream all in his chest... Beautiful sight for a Monday afternoon! Huw and Aled did some dives/ belly flops in the pool, and Huw posed for about a million photos of himself! Aled thought he was funny and threw me in the pool.. As well as throwing a cup of water over me. Payback will follow shortly!
In the evening, we decided to go to play crazy golf.. Very funny indeed, with Huw throwing his golf stick four times because he was stropping, so so funny! I changed the rules to that the person with the highest score wins and turns out that I was the winner... Get in!! Very proud of myself. On the way back, the ever funny Huw asked how skinny my fingers were because he needed to get a bogey out.. Who ever invented Huw has definitely forgot to put a screw or two in!
Got in and into bed and only turned True Blood on the TV.. I jumped out of bed and pretty much jumped around for about 10minutes!! TOO excited. Yes, I'm in Orlando, Florida and that's exciting. But the thought of Bill Compton on my screen beats that hands down!! Turns out it was the last episode of the new series, so now know the ending, which is very sad! :( Me and Josie tried hiding our disappointment but both ending up crying!
Day 3 of week 2 (I think, I'm loosing track of months and days) .. We went to Hollywood Studios, Disney.. I loved it here! Hollywood themed right up! We braved the tower of terror, and I've never screamed so loud in my entire life.. There was a tiny child on it and I thought if she can do it, I can.. She was smiling her face off while I looked like I'd seen a ghost! We also seen Indiana Jones and American Idol, which was really cool. We had to vote out of three visitors. I considered putting my self up as one volunteer to sing but knew that I'd win hands down, so just kept in the background!
Soooo, then there were two shows! The little mermaid, my fav ever Disney film.. The show was brilliant.. Loved every second! Then there was Beauty and the Beast, my fav Disney princess.. Well, she turned out to be a real minger.. Very disappointed in the person that hired her to be Belle.. It has crushed all my dreams! However, the show was really good and the music and singing along made up for it!
Star Wars was also in this park.. Me being a huge fan... NOT, asked why tin man and the lion from wizard of Oz was in a star wars ride.. Turns out star wars is sort of based around aliens and robots! Mmmm....
Whilst having a little discussion about the weather, I casually said to Josie that I fancied going out again as Josie had a feeling that X-Factor USA wouldn't be on our channels, which meant for me- no Simon Cowell, no staying in! (issues, I know, but there's not much else to do in the evenings)! Within ten minutes, Aled had text us to see if we fancied going out.. Coincidence or fate? I'm going with fate! So our plans were made!
To get our transfer to our hotel we had to get to Epcot by boat.. Well, w e actually arrived at the exit. Some silly American decided not to put the sign right. So we had the most patronising staff of Disney take us behind the scenes and ruined "our magic", as they put it, in order for us to make our transfer!
Vodka times had arrived and they were going down quite nicely.. Travelled to universal the traditional way by cartwheels.. It's becoming a little bit of a theme for me! I'm determined to teach Josie before the end of this trip! We bumped into Roy again.. Hilarious! Although, this time we avoided him like the plague.. Josie decided to dance on her own, thinking she was amazing then had some dancing lessons from security, all which has been recorded on video! No escaping the truth Lawthom! I wasn't really feeling the night.. Think tiredness caught up and was too pre occupied with a Texan!
When we got in, my agitations only increased. I was paranoid about stupid bed bugs biting me.. And it was only today that I found out they were real. I just thought that's what parents said to their children to scare them a little bit.. As well as the constant snoring coming from the beast that is Aled! It's safe to say, other than my freaked out night in Bass Lake, it was the worst nights sleep I've had in a long time! There seems to be a pattern occurring that when Aled is involved I cannot sleep! No more sleepovers for Ally Pally..
Thursday morning, with no sleep I woke mega mega early! Good news is that I got to Skype lots of peeps!! :) ..
First up was little bro, who has now moved to uni and experienced his first freshers night out- talk about jealous! I want to do freshers all over again..! Then was my lovely girlies.. Franny Ann, Lenna and birthday girl Carly!! Was amazing to see them, and loved that they skyped me from a coffee shop.. I felt that I was having coffee with them! Me & Josie sang happy birthday to curly, before letting them know the latest gossip! Makes me miss them and wish I was there to party with them for Carly's birthday! I'll be there in spirit Carlz and hope you like your prezzies! Theeeen my cousin, who I have been trying to skype since I've been away.. So finally managed to catch up with Miss Sarah Wilkins and filled her in on all the goss and she filled me in on The Inbetweeners movie, also said Hi to Roman, her dozy ass boxer dog!
Aled then decided to rise from the dead and we headed to Hollywood studios for the 2nd day in a row! Our second day in Hollywood Studios meant riding on Tower of Terror numerous times.. I have now grown to love this ride- it's brilliant! We also went to see the Lights, Motor, Action show, which was much more enjoyable for Josie than it was for me... Things like that do not interest me. Give me glitter, princesses and Disney songs any day of the week over cars and editing movies!
Back at our hotel, we just crashed out and slept from about 9pm alllllll the way to 9am.. That sleep was definitely needed.. Now were both refreshed ready to finish Magic Kingdom and party our weekend away at Universal ready to depart from Aled and the Edwards family!
Magic Kingdom is one hundred and ten percent my favourite park out of them all, purely because it has the Princess Castle! We rode Space Mountain again, which is a class ride! It's brilliant! Then we went to Fantasy Land, which had all the old school, REAL Disney character rides.. Snow White, Alice in Wonderland.. List goes on. We also met Belle and Cinderella.. Perfect fairy tale ending to our Disney park trips..
Now Friday evening in Orlando and the weekend is partay time! Aled met us at six to get our transfer home, which is the most stressful time of my life as people's queuing etiquette goes out the window.. It drives me crazy how rude people can be! But there we go! Got back to the hotel and got on the vodders. It got drunken quite quickly..I wore my size 4 orange dress, which I am happy that it still actually fits.. JUST! Before leaving I searched and searched for my passport... But guess what?!? The maids had only stolen it from my bag.. And I know for a fact that it was because I wrote them a letter about the bed bugs and they wanted to teach me a lesson... I don't blame them, it's about time some one taught me a lesson... But this drama put Aled out of the party mood and he stayed in whilst Me and Josie decided to carry on the party and headed to The Grove!
Considering we didn't actually get out until midnight, the night was quite eventful. First we were approached to go to VIP.. Got up there, had a drink and was surrounded by a bunch of gimps.. So left VIP and danced the night away! On the way home, I decided it would be clever to go and party with the ants?! Really?! And ended up in a bush, with only photos to remind me of this.. Josie, also ended up hugging a tree..! The word freaks come to mind.. Ah well, all fun and games!
Saturday day was a day filled with doing nowt! We sat at the pool all day catching some rays and also swimming to stop myself being a fatty!
Saturday evening waaaaasssss funtimes.. We played crazy snap with our new Disney princess cards! I was loosing really badly and ended up drinking quite a bit.. I need to rest my liver! We went out earlier to try and find somewhere to watch the Wales v Tonga rugby, but had no luck! Boohoo.. So, we just went straight to The Groove, yet again! Music wasn't as good as the other nights, but we still partied hard. Heading home was much more sensible this evening.. However, I have never felt so sick in my life when getting into bed...
And the morning wasn't much better.. I was up mega early as during the night I consumed a big bottle of full fat coke so was buzzing from the sugar.. No food for me today, that has taken up my daily calorie allowance! Eeeeeshk!
Visiting downtown Disney to get our princess Simone a little prezzie.. Then visiting Aled and crew to say goodbye :( ... On our way back to out hotel, the most amazing William Bailey entertained us with some cracking mean girls quotes... "it's not my fault I've got a wide set vagina and a heavy flow" Annnd "Trang Pak is a grotsky little beatch" ... Had us in giggles all the way home and now we miss Will "too gay too function" Bailey even more!
Monday morning, we are heading to Miami b****! Wish me luck as Josie is driving.. This will be fun...
In the words of Walt Disney... "Let the memories begin"
