Our 2018 Disney Vacation: Birthday ~ Fun Day

Tuesday March 20, 2018

Birthday ~ Fun Day 
{continued}

After dinner, the rain had stopped, so we walked around a bit more in Disney Springs. The shopping is wonderful: Anthropologie, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Sephora......I loved browsing through all the shops.
Here's a {LINK} to check them out!

We also stopped as we made our way back to the bus stop to listen to the live music and dj.

We thought about possibly going over to one the Magic Kingdom/monorail resorts and watching the fireworks, but I suggested going back to our resort and just relax by the pool. Peter was just fine with that. What an amazing birthday--this one will be hard to top! :O)

A few resort pictures and the end to our day.......

Disney Dining: The Boathouse

Tuesday March 20, 2018
Dinner: The Boathouse
@ Disney Springs 




This was a first time experience for us dining at The Boathouse. I had chosen it for my birthday dinner and overall, we really enjoyed it. I'll be completely honest and say though, that I regretted using 4 of our dining credits for this one meal. We had had some amazing food/experiences at the 2-credit restaurants we had chosen during our trip, and while this one was good, I probably won't choose it again unless we do lunch there OOP. 

I got the Lobster Bisque as an appetizer and Peter chose the Steamed Mussels in Cioppino Broth 


We both ordered the 12-oz Filet Mignon Oscar-Style 
{jumbo lump crabmeat, asparagus, and bΓ©arnaise}


We added the Roasted Brussels Sprouts....


For dessert, we both chose the Key Lime Pie in a Mason Jar
{with vanilla bean chantilly cream}


[$165.87 = 4 TS credits + $36.21 OOP + cash tip] 

Again, while we had a wonderful dinner at The Boathouse, it didn't WOW me like some of the others had and they didn't cost near as much.
But it's my birthday, and I sure will remember this special day and dinner!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!

Our 2018 Disney Vacation: Day 7 [Birthday~Fun Day]

Tuesday March 20, 2018
Birthday in Disney!!!!

Birthday coffee!! <3

We had a dinner ADR in Disney Springs, and it was supposed to rain off/on today, so I had the perfect inside birthday fun in mind!! 


First.....LUNCH!!

I had read very good things about D-Luxe Burger and they proved to be all true!!



 We both chose the Southern Burger - signature blend beef patty topped w/ a fried green tomato, pimento cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and bacon ---OMG!!! We shared a large order of fries which were delicious as well as the yummy dipping sauces that D-Luxe is famous for. We both got sodas too.
[ $40.00 - or 2 CS credits]

A nice view and relaxing lunch on the deck before the rain came.



Next.........









This was soooooo much fun!! We hadn't bowled in years! Peter did great and I was pretty decent too! :O) :O) :O)

Splitsville was really nice, we were in one of the lanes upstairs. You can eat while playing or just get drinks. It was the perfect rainy day fun thing to do. 

Afterwards, we did a little shopping and looking around in Disney Springs until our 5:00 dinner ADR at Boathouse. By that time, the rain was about to start again.

Happy Birthday Kayla!


Happy 21st!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

I've watched you grow from a sweet little girl into a strong, caring, confident young woman. You are an amazing Mom and wife - all you have to do is see the way they both look at you. You've always had a strong love of family, and I am thankful that trickled right down to ours. You always make me feel loved and include me in everything. Happy Birthday!! Love you!!
