9. October: Heart of the Sunshine State
This morning we went to the beach last time for jogging and a quick swimming. Then we head to Miami airport to catch our rental car with navigation for the next destination: heart of the sunshine state- central Florida & Orlando.
I'm really excited, again. During the drive we didn't get so much traffic jams, everything goes perfectly: empty highway, blue sky, nice views; 3 and a half hours drive seems a piece of cake for me especially with Starbucks every 8 miles sometimes.
In the service plaza one can get lots of information of the attractions in Orlando and around, I start concerning if I get enough time to visit all these things, it's really a lot to see, one should spend 2 weeks instead of 4 days there.

We just passed the Disney Outlet, our hotel (BuenaVista Palace hotel & spa) at Lake Buens Vista must be somewhere around.
Now we arrived, got the room card. I must say, it's a very nice, grand hotel, compares to the one we were at Miami beach is just like from hell to heaven (got the wrong impression from the photos of that hotel online)...
It was around 4pm when we arrived, we were all tired... After calling my highschool colleague in Orlando, we went to Downtown Disney... There got a lot of shops with all the Disney products and the restaurants with disney themes... It´s really a heaven for the kids!! There you can see the superbly constructed LEGO dinosaur at the Marketplace, La Nouba™ show at Cirque du Soliel® which is famous around the world.
