So, another day (day 7) dawned. Today was the day I had been waiting for. I got to visit Tupperware World, otherwise known as Tupperware headquarters. I may be a Tupperware consultant but this actually wasn’t my idea. I went along with it, of course, but I didn’t ask to go. It was actually the Man who asked me a few months ago if I knew that the Tupperware headquarters is in Orlando. Well, duh, of course I did and what’s more, anyone can go in and visit their gallery and shop.
I love the mottos they have on the wall on the way to the gallery. The gallery isn’t very big but they do have examples of products from yesteryear as well as products from different countries around the world. In the shop, I was very good and didn’t spend too much. We had gone in with the intention of buying one specific product which we can’t get in the UK but also bought a couple of others. It was a bonus when I got to the checkout to find that, as a Tupperware consultant, I got a discount too.
After Tupperware World, we took a drive over to Mall at Millenia so we could go to the Cheesecake Factory. We went there on our last visit and enjoyed it. There is so much choice of food! We all decided to have a burger and then came unstuck when our server asked how we wanted our burger cooking. What? We have no choice in the UK, it’s well done or well done. We asked for medium but I think medium to well done would have been better. I like my steak medium to medium rare but for burgers? Not so much.
Of course, we couldn’t go to the Cheesecake Factory without getting cheesecake. Unfortunately, we were so full we didn’t want it then. Fortunately, you can get your cheesecake to go. I wish I’d taken a photo but I forgot.
This was the last day we had the car so after dropping our shopping off at the resort, we took the car back to the rental company and then made our way to the Magic Kingdom. As we were on our way to our first ride (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad) the heavens opened and the rain came down, hard. So, we got soaked. The rain didn’t last long though, it had stopped by the time we had come off the ride. We then went to get a return time for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train as the wait time was 70 minutes. We then received a little bit of Disney magic when the cast member asked if we wanted to go on the ride then/now and also have our return time. Well? Yes! So we go to ride the mine train twice.
While waiting for the return time, we went to see the re-imagined Hall of Presidents.
Finally, to end the day, we went over to Bay Lake Tower to watch the Happily Ever After fireworks. It was interesting to see the firework show from a different angle. Great show. My photos really don’t do it justice.
