Day three started off with a morning at the spa. Throughout our trip, we got to choose three different events or excursions to take part of. Options included a trip to one of the many theme parks in Orlando, ATVing, indoor skydiving, golfing, kayaking, and many many more. You could also choose to spend some time at the Ritz Carlton Spa enjoying a facial, manicure+pedicure, or massage. Since I was still technically working on the trip, I couldn’t be gone for an entire day, so I chose to do a different spa service each day! My first appointment was the manicure and pedicure and it was fabulous.
Included with your spa treatment was access to a private, peaceful pool where you could lounge as long as you wanted before and after your appointment. (Photo credit from the Ritz Carlton website as cameras were prohibited in the spa for obvious reasons).
While Scott was at Universal Studios for the day, I ordered room service and worked in our room for a bit until he returned (rough life). We spent some time at the pool together before getting ready for another fun night!
Scott’s employer hosted a tailgate themed event on the Ritz Carlton grounds and I loved the laid back atmosphere. It was so fun to see who everyone’s favorite teams were too!
They also brought in about 10 food trucks offering a variety of food including oysters, bbq ribs, burgers and brats, clam chowder and taco salad.
I couldn’t get over how cute all of the food trucks were!
Activities were scattered throughout the lawn including basketball, cornhole, zip-lining and a duck hunting game. Can you tell I’ve never shot a gun before? Haha, I love the look on Scott’s face!
The night ended with the Party Crashers band and they did not disappoint! They had so much energy and played for hours. Throughout their performance they took a five minute break for our very own fireworks show. So cool!
And we danced and sang the night away!
The next morning was my second spa experience– a massage! It was 50 minutes of pure bliss as I knew it would be. Most of the day was spent working and taking breaks by the pool and the night was spent with some of Scott’s coworkers in his district. We decided to head towards the Universal City Walk to check out some restaurants and walk around for the evening.
Scott’s manager is a huge fan of NBA so we chose to eat at NBA City for dinner. The food was just okay but the company was great and so was the atmosphere!
Some other groups were in the area too so we all met up at Pat O’Briens– a fun dueling pianos bar. We stayed there for quite some time before catching our bus back to the hotel and called it a night!
