    WDW Trip Report - June 1-4, 2006

    We stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian resort on June 1st for 3 nights. Here are a few photos from our stay.






    This is room 4666 in the Sago Cay building.


    This was our view! Here are three videos I took of the view. Our view, Early Morning 1, Early morning 2.


    A closeup of Space Mountain and the MK monorail station.


    This was the easiest way to get to the MK from the Grand Floridian ... Over by monorail and back by boat.


    An infamous Florida afternoon thunderstorm as seen from our room.


    It cleared up nicely after the storm ... look closely and you can see a rainbow between the Contemporary and Space Mountain.


    Dusk over the Seven Seas Lagoon.


    Dawn at the Magic Kingdom.


    We could see the Electrical Water Pageant from our room at 10:00 PM.




    It was our birthdays the week before, so Donald and Chip & Dale sent us some goodies.


    Epcot before opening time.


    That's us and Eeyore at the Crystal Palace character breakfast.

    Nice pictures thanks for sharing. Especially the water pagent photos, I only got to see it once and it was kinda by accident. And I thought it was cool they were still doing it as it is very nostalgic.

    Thanks! The first night, I was so excited, so we slept with the drapes open to see the view. I got up VERY early and was able to capture a lot of the dawn shots, of which I've posted one. I wish I could share with you all the sounds of the Magic Kingdom at that hour. It was so peaceful. I could hear birds chirping and the sounds of the Magic Kingdom music playing softly.

    I remember the first time I stayed in a tower room at the Contemporary, facing the park. I almost hated to to go sleep at night, cuz it just seems I was wasting that beautiful view by sleeping instead of standing on my balcony and staring out at the incredible vista.

    Great photo report and video clips Mikey... How much fun it must have been!! And how appropriate to have a rainbow over the MK on Gay Days no less... I wanted to reciprocrate by posting my morning, afternoon and evening (with fireworks) shots of my HKDL view from my parkside room at the Hollywood Hotel.
    Thanks for sharing your photos.
