Day 16: Last day
Say it ain't so!!! We went back and forth on what we should do on our last day in Orlando. Our flight didn't leave until 3:30pm so we had the morning. We finally decided to return to MK one last time. G wanted to check out a few of the rides again and I wanted to try lunch at the Be Our Guest (BOG)restaurant.

We did our usual rundown of the Fantasyland rides, quickly. Then popped into line for lunch. Its a different experience from dinner. You order from a little kiosk and you're given a plastic rose. You find a table and then, somehow, they can tell from the rose where you're sitting and they bring you the food. Its all very efficient. Georgie was hoping to sit at a talbe in the West Wing but it was full. We made due sitting in the rose room.
After lunch it was definitely time to go. We still had to drop the car off and be shuttled to the airport (grrrrr that the stupid car rental place wasn't in the airport where it was supposed to have been). We boarded the empty return monorail and headed back.
Our return flights were uneventful and we made it home by early evening. We were exhausted and still sick. I usually don't like coming home but, this time, I was actually relieved.

Over the next few weeks, I was asked by many people how our vacation went, etc. Each time I had to admit that it was a tough couple weeks. With all the problems we had it would seem that it was miserable. It wasn't. We had a great time but it wasn't the same nice, easy trip we had in September. Each day was challenging and tiring. Hopefully our next trip will be illness free :-)
