Brunch at Grand Floridian - A Disney Christmas Day 4.0

December 7th, 2014

We were going home today.  Doing long weekends at Disney is a double edged sword.  It's great because you aren't spending as much money as you would if you were spending a week or more at the park.  It's bad, because you never have enough time to do everything you want to do.  So instead of trying to cram one last half day in the park, we had Brunch.

I had looked a little bit at Brunch options on this trip, but the decision to go was made solely by Scott.  My only request...I wanted a Mimosa.

Scott found a place that fit the bill.  The Grand Floridian Cafe.  So we would get Mimosas...I mean, Brunch...we would get Brunch.  It's not all about Mimosas.

We took the same route as the previous night.  Bus to Magic Kingdom.  Monorail to the Grand Floridian.  But this time, we had a set timeline.  Disney's Magical Express was picking us up at our hotel at 1215p.  So we had to start heading back around 11a.

Turns out we didn't have to worry about timi…

Let's Keep this Going: Photography at Disney World - A Disney Christmas Day 1-3

December 6th, 2014

We spent the day at Magic Kingdom, doing what you do at Magic Kingdom.  And it was awesome.  But I decided today would be better served showing all of the weird and great pictures from the trip as a whole.  I never really put many pictures up on Facebook this time.  And I did put a few up on Instagram, but I didn't go crazy.  So here is the crazy...with a few Magic Kingdom stories thrown in for good measure.

Animal Kingdom - Day 1

The first few pictures were taken in the Asia section of the park.  Mostly near Expedition Everest, which is why there are so many references to a Yeti...

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party - Night 1

Most of the pictures from MVMCP (you remembered!!) are on that day's blog.  But I figured a few pictures of decorations wouldn't hurt.

Epcot - Day 2

Epcot's blog day was very much focused on food, so I missed out on showing stupid pics from that day.

Lounging at Disney World - A Disney Christmas Day 3.5

December 6th, 2014

I'm trying to structure the blogs for this trip as more of a Shiny and New Experience kind of thing.  Because, I've done (and written about) the Disney thing enough that seeing how we waited for 90 minutes for Peter Pan's Flight isn't all that exciting.  Again.

Though let's be honest, I'm not waiting 90 minutes for Peter Pan's Flight.  And you shouldn't either!!  Seriously, world!!  Why is this even a thing??  In the last few weeks, Scott has texted me with the Peter Pan's Flight wait time and we shake our head every time.  This is a nice enough ride, but not for a wait longer than, what...15 minutes??

We didn't go on Peter Pan's Flight this time.  But I have wildly gotten away from where I was going here.

One of the things we did this time that we haven't done in the past will probably sound weird.

We went back to the room to rest in the middle of the day.

Seriously.  It's like I don't even know who I am any…
