Lunch at T-REX in Orlando, Florida


Lunch at T-REX in Orlando, Florida
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for April 5, 2012


On our third full day in Florida, we decided it was OK to be lazy for a day and hang out at the pool.  It's amazing how long boys can throw plastic balls at one another without it getting boring.



We decided not to pay the $25 per day to heat the pool because we're from Minnesota and weren't afraid of a little bit of cold water.  That lasted for a little while, but we still  found ourselves spending an inordinate amount of time in the hot tub.


We'd planned on going to Disney World on this day, but after seeing the crowd at Busch Gardens, we decided not to try it.  Apparently Spring Break isn't the best time of year to plan on going to the Orlando Theme Parks!  


So instead, we decided on going to lunch at Planet Hollywood, but were a bit disappointed when we walked in and found that the place hadn't really changed since our last visit several years ago.  Then when we saw the prices on the menu, we said forget it!


So we walked further into Downtown Disney and decided to eat at T-REX instead.  The prices were just as ridiculous, but at least there was new stuff to see inside.  If I'm going to get screwed, I at least want to be entertained while it happens!


And we weren't disappointed!  The dinosaurs inside were pretty cool to see.  We had a great time until we later saw this picture and discovered that there was a ghost in the restaurant!  You can see it's spooky eyes hovering between Avery and Sheri's faces.
