Well hello everyone!
My wife and I recently returned from a very short (but awesome) 4 day trip to WDW. I thought I'd share a couple of thoughts and pictures. This trip was a little different, as it was our first trip without the kids. Now, we did feel a little guilty about this.....but they where being spoiled by grandma and grandpa.....and it was our ten year wedding anniversary. anyway
Here we go!
We checked into the Yacht Club Resort for the first day of our 4 day extravaganza. Because of the special celebration I decided to go all out for this trip. We would be staying in luxury and eating like kings and queens (until we returned home....where we would be eating like peasants to pay for it all).
This is the first time we have stayed at the Yacht club, although we have stayed at it's sister resort.
I love the Crescent Lake area
Unlike it's sister resort, the Beach Club, The Yacht club is decorated in rich wood tones appropriate for it's nautical theme.
RANT: You will note that all of my pictures are carefully framed to keep the Swan and Dolphin out of them. I have already posted quite a rant about how much those two modern hotels annoy me, so I wont repeat it all here. I will however say that if they where elsewhere I would have no problem with them.....but they are right smack dab in the center of what is supposed to be three turn of the century hotels......annoys me to ne end END RANT
Well, after a good nights sleep we where headed to the Magic Kingdom. Both of us being military (Coast Guard) we got an early start and would be getting there in plenty of time for rope drop. This is good, as the crowds where nuts later in the day. First things first, however, we need to head over to the Boardwalk Bakery for coffee as the Yacht Club still has the horrendous Nescafe.
and now....The Magic Kingdom
We had lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table, but due to poor lighting I have no halfway decent photos of our lunch to share with the. The food was good (not excellent) but the food is not really the main draw to this one is it? We had a blast, even without the kids. Every princess came to our table and chatted with us....including the most awesome Snow white in existence. She was brilliant and had everything down perfectly. It was as though she had jumped out of the film to be there. kudos to that CM!
gotta stop by the Tangled potties
Now dinner was to be at Flying Fish Café this evening, so we headed over to the Poly for a Coffee mug and a shirt (as our previous one had broken and worn out, respectively) Got a picture of the Grand Floridian DVC
back at the Boardwalk, Dinner was amazing
my wife tells me that is wasabi foam on top, who knew, right?
it was then back to the Magic Kingdom for evening EMH. We had got to do a lot with those last hours of the day, and we discovered that we both LOVE LeFou's Brew. I know that it has not been the most popular in these hallowed halls (and we have no way of comparing it to butterbeer) but it really hit the spot for us.
Well, It's off to Animal Kingdom and Epcot tomorrow...but alas, I have no more time tonight to post any further. so with that being said, we will see you tomorrow.
P.S. Please join me tomorrow as I have Wild Africa Trek, and a full day at Epcot to share, and if I have time I will tell you about my little dip in the Seas aquarim
