    Default What is this planning you speak of? Day 7

    At least I think I am on Day 7. . .
    We woke up, ate brunch, and realized we would never eat all of the food we had left. We gave it our best shot though. I called Chocolate Kingdom to see if they were having tours that afternoon. The gentleman on the phone advised us that it would be best to go after 2 unless we wanted to be inundated with children. I don't really have anything against kids, but neither of us felt like battling through a throng of screaming children. We got there at 3.
    On the way there, we turned onto International Drive. I was all excited to be on "I-Drive", since so many people had spoken about it here on the boards. Yeah, I know. Simple things amuse simple minds. What can I say?
    I love chocolate, and I was really prepared to be disappointed in this. I wasn't. It was a bit cheesy, but I learned quite a bit about the history of chocolate. The lady who did our tour was very entertaining also. At the end, we got to make our own chocolate with up to three mix-ins. DS and I made our choices. Then we decided we wanted to try other combinations too, so we bought two more. Once you have done the tour, you get a discount on any chocolates you have custom made for the rest of eternity. While we waited for them to make our chocolate, we went out to the shop to get a drink and use the bathroom. While there, I got a chocolate covered strawberry, and DS bought some gifts. I got two chocolate cigars that I intended to give to people. They didn't make it though.
    DS was hungry for real food, so we decided to make a last visit to Epcot. We went to Sunshine Seasons. This turned out to be a great spot for us for our trips this year. We hardly paid attention to it before. After Soarin' around the World, I went to pick up my AP cutting board. We browsed the selections in the building that I have newly discovered. (I still can't believe I never saw it before.) They had some pretty cool scenes made out of chocolate, and of course, I had some of their free chocolate. I think this was when I bought DDIL's Christmas present. There was some sort of alcoholic beverage in a bottle that was shaped like a cat. DDIL2 LOVES cats. I tried to have it shipped home, but we couldn't do that. They wrapped it up very well for me, to withstand the flight home.
    We headed to World Showcase for some last nibbles. We also finally got our photopass pictures with the Food & Wine Festival signs in front of Spaceship Earth as we headed out. Photopass photographers hadn't normally been there when we went by.
