Making one final stop at Disney’s BoardWalk to check the progress of the new Cake Bake shop where again, very little progress can be seen on the exterior, but that doesn’t mean a lot isn’t happening inside!

We’re off to grab a sandwich at BoardWalk Deli and ride Spaceship Earth before the afternoon rainstorm hits, thanks for following along!
