Me and my boyfriend arrived at 10 in the morning and I remember trying to look for somewhere that was doing breakfast. We were surrounded by all these lovely eateries but really struggled to find breakfast! We made the choice of hanging on till lunch time and having a bigger meal then, so in the meantime just wandered around. Downtown Disney wasn't what I was expecting. I'd seen photos of it online but it just didn't look the same in the day. There were however lots of restaurants and shops, and quirky little things to look at and photograph on the way.

We then had dinner in T Rex which is very similar to Rainforest Café, but focusing purely on dinosaurs instead. We don't have children but I still loved it in here. Every 15 minutes there is a rainstorm. All the dinosaurs come to life, start moving and making noises, lights start flashing and the 'breeze' gets up. Whoever thought of this idea needs one huge sticker, I'd definitely take my children there in the future. We were placed in the igloo/iceberg part of the restaurant, which, as you've probably guessed, was designed exactly like one. The snow effect walls, the shape, the lights. It had everything going on. The food as well was something I'll never forget. I got a pulled pork BBQ burger (yes, 5 months on and I still remember, THATS how good it was!). Words cannot describe. I can't remember what my boyfriend got but he enjoyed his as well. We both got ourselves a milkshake where you got to pick what chocolate went in it.. that too was delicious. When leaving, the waitress came to us and gave us 2 T-Rex glasses to keep, that are now sat proudly in our kitchen as a little souvenir. This is somewhere I'd definitely recommend!

We left just after tea and as the sun set, I saw more people flocking there, so its probably a lot more livelier come nighttime.
In terms of things to do, at times we found ourselves twiddling our thumbs (my dad was our mode of transport who wasn't with us!) so its probably not somewhere to go for a full day, but maybe on an evening instead. Should I return to Florida anytime soon, its not somewhere I'd rush back, but you may just be able to tempt me should you wave that pulled pork burger in my face again! ;-)
