I mentioned last week, that for our fifth day of our honeymoon, we were headed somewhere, not Disney. Where could we be going? It was the one place my husband wanted to go and I used it to get him to agree to Florida for our honeymoon.
Kennedy Space Center!
But first we had the first of our three special breakfast reservations. I made several reservations when our 180 day window opened, but I ended up canceling a couple to save money. I kept three that we really wanted to try and they all ended up being breakfasts. This day our reservation was for Boma. It's a buffet restaurant at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The buffet was a nice mix of both American foods and African foods. I admit we weren't very adventurous and mostly stuck to the familiar. They had a really good juice called West African Funch. It was a mixture of lemonade, pineapple juice, guava juice, orange juice, and papaya juice. I really enjoyed it.
Would we eat here again? Maybe. Probably only if we were staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge as it is a bit of a hassle to get there and for our tastes, we can get a similar breakfast other places.
After breakfast, we drove about 90 minutes over to Cape Canaveral to check out the Space Center. My husband loves all things space and the space program. This day was really all for him, I didn't have much interest in everything, but it was still an interesting day.
For the first part of the day, we walked around checking out the various displays and exhibits.
There are no pictures of me this day, but I promise I was there!
In the afternoon, we took the tour. It takes you around to three different spots around the complex. It's a rather lengthy tour, but it was included with admission and it was actually the most interesting part of the day.
The first spot takes you to a spot where you can view the shuttle launch spots. We saw a film first and then had time to climb a tower and view the locations.
On the way to the second stop, the bus took us by some interesting buildings.
This is the building where the shuttle and the rocket are joined together before launch.
The two smaller buildings on the right are were the shuttles go when they land.
That tall structure in the middle is the vehicle that takes the shuttle to the launch pad.
The second stop on the tour is home to the Saturn V rocket.
As you can see, it's pretty big!
Somebody was pretty happy!
After the tour, we were done at Cape Canaveral, so we headed back to Orlando. I had been amazed that we had had such great weather all day with no rain. The minute we got back to Orlando, the sky turned grey. We decided to get dinner at Olive Garden and as soon as we walked in, the rain started.
After dinner, we decided to check out something we had spotted across the street. An Ikea! Of course, we couldn't buy anything, but we had fun just checking it out.
Tomorrow would be another non-Disney day. Now where were we going?
