Honeymoon Day 8 & Downtown Disney

It was our very last day in Florida and we were bummed that it was over, but excited to get back home and see our family and our kitties. We had to be out of our Villa by 10 am, and our flight wasn't until 5 pm, so we had some time to kill. We decided to head back to Downtown Disney. 

We had already been there once because we had gone to the House of Blues for dinner(sorry, forgot to blog about that) but it was pretty late when we finished with dinner, so a lot of the shops were already closed, so we didn't really get to experience all that much of it. So we decided it would be a great place to go back and spend some time before we had to leave. 

We did a lot of shopping at Downtown Disney. My favorite store was the World of Disney store. It is one of the largest Disney merchandising stores in the country. This place was huge. They had pretty much anything and everything that you could possibly want. I loved walking around the store and seeing everything. And I loved all the characters they had placed throughout it!

Aran's favorite store was of course, the Lego store. They had all kinds of cool Lego sculptures on the outside of the store and on the inside. My favorites were the Toy Story and Snow White sculptures. We were in this store for a while because Aran was drooling over all of the different Lego sets. I can't believe how expensive some of these things are. They are just plastic pieces! But anyways, it was a pretty cool store. 

After those two stores, we got some lunch at Earl of Sandwich, which I had never even heard of, but it was delicious. We also made a stop at the big Christmas store that they had there, but didn't really find anything that I absolutely had to have. Also, we went to the Ghirardelli store! OMG, I loved this store! We bought a lot of chocolate to bring back with us! Including some yummy Pumpkin Spice squares! 

After all of the shopping and walking around, we decided it was time to head to the airport and turn in our car and wait for our flight. We almost got creamed on our way to the airport by some guy that wasn't paying attention, but luckily some people moved out of the way for us to get into another lane. Once we got to the airport we turned our rental car back in and then headed over to get checked in.

After we got checked in, we made our way through security and then to our gate where we had a few hours to kill. So we just sat in the terminal and played on our computers and our phones until it was time to board the plane. 

It was a great end to an already amazing week. We were sad to be leaving, but excited to get home at the same time. It was an amazing  Honeymoon, filled with memories that I will cherish and hold on to for the rest of my life. I am so glad that we decided to go where we did. It was the perfect trip for us and I can't wait til we can go back again and create more memories!
