Red Mesa: Saturday, we decided to head out of Orlando and over to St. Petersburg to soak up a little beach time. The day was full of adventures and we had a fun time walking the beach and eating ice cream for lunch (a vacation tradition in my family!). By the time 5 pm hit we were tired, hungry, sunburnt, and dehydrated....which turned out to be nothing Red Mesa couldn't handle! We dragged our burnt selves to their patio (notice a trend here?), where we rehydrated with a pitcher of margaritas and water, LOTS of water! Given that it was the day before cindo de mayo, Mexican food seemed fitting. At that point anything would've tasted good, but even so, our quesadillas and tacos were top notch!
Epcot - Tutto Gusto: All of Sunday was spent in nostalgia, fondly remembering the last time the three of us had been together in Disney World. We started off at Hollywood Studios (what I remember as MGM) where we harmed our eardrums listening to Julia scream her way through Tower of Terror...twice. We then met up with my friend Lauren at Epcot where we enjoyed just about every attraction there, as well as a whirlwind tour around the world! We stopped in Italy at Tutto Gusto, a wine cellar that truly feels like you're walking into a little place in Italy. After glasses of wine and a cheese & olive plate, we continued our trek, taking photos in each city along the way (pictured above: the UK).
Wolfgang Puck: We almost missed seeing my aunt and uncle, who were out of town the weekend we came, but thankfully met up with these in Downtown Disney for a quick dinner on Sunday night. Although Wolfgang Puck's menu is large enough that you can find something for everyone, we all stuck to pizzas and salads. I recommend the Greek salad and veggie pizza! Because of our VIP status (or because Ashlyn's boyfriend works there...), we found ourselves with a giant platter of dessert to finish the meal, including carrot cake, key lime pie, and molten lava chocolate cake. We pretty much rolled out of there!
Market Street Cafe: We spent our final morning in Celebration, FL, a picturesque little town near Orlando. Sitting outside once again, we soaked up the last of the sunshine and our time together. It was at this little diner that we were asked if we were triplets, much to our delight ;) I stuck to a basic breakfast of eggs, fruit, and toast, but the waffles and pancakes that Julia, Ashlyn, and Josh ordered were met with rave reviews!
All in all, while the food was great, it was the company we were really there for. Thankfully, neither disappointed! We already cannot wait to return for more Orlando adventures with Ashlyn!
