The plan today was to go to Magic Kingdom and spend the day with some old neighbors who have moved to the Orlando area and have a little baby (finally!!).
We were up before the sun and I feel so bad for the people in the room next to us!! They always had their privacy thing in the door and my kids were sooooo loud- we were THAT family!! So if you are out there— sorry!! :laugh:
We had breakfast at the OPR CS and it was pretty good. DH and I both had a breakfast quesadilla and the kids had the Mickey waffles.
After breakfast we hopped the bus to MK and started our day. We actually didn’t have any plans, just to enjoy the day and do whatever we wanted. Our friends took forever to get there so we just started hitting the rides. The park was pretty empty and we were able to get on 7 rides in less that an hour and a half. We got totally soaked on Splash Mountain and it was a little chilly that morning- I guess that was why there was no wait!! :laugh:It was an EMH morning and I always feel like those are the best- especially at MK.
Our friends arrived (finally!!) and we hit up Thunder Mountain and we called it a day as far as MK was concerned. They were a little freaked out having their 5 month old at the park and wanted to leave.
On the way out, as I always do, I checked to see if vlogilvie (Valerie) was working in guest relations and like always, I didn’t see her.
I walked out the side door near the restrooms and in front of the stairs where she was standing!! We met and took a picture. She was really sweet and it was great to finally put a face to a name. She is the first Mousebuzzer I have met!!
So, we took the monorail to the Contemporary and had a few drinks at The Wave. I really love their bar area. We ate there once after they just opened and it was just ok. We will stick to the bar!!
Our friends decided to head back home and we decided to head over to the Grand Floridian. I really hoped that the Gingerbread House would have been up, but it was still to early. Not a lot of Christmas decorations anywhere and I was surprised.
We had some time to kill before dinner so we decided to head to Mizner’s Lounge and have a drink. It didn’t open until 5pm. The bars at WDW open too late in my opinion. I was getting a little tired of paying $9-$10 for a glass of wine…so off to the store in the GF to bought myself a bottle of Pinot Grigio for $14.95! They even threw in a free corkscrew!! We grabbed some cups and we had a nice relaxing hour people watching.
We had an ADR at Kona, but cancelled and decided to sit at the Sushi Bar at the Poly. It was delicious, but a little pricey! We had the DDP, but was advised to pay OOP for this since one roll for $10 would be considered my entree- not a great deal.
After dinner, we headed back to CBR and hit the pool. The pool was great, but it was sooo cold when you got out!!
Only one picture today- Me and Valerie![/QUOTE]
Hey, that’s great about the wine, I was thinking about bringing a bottle from home, but now maybe I’ll just buy a bottle there. $14.95 is extremely reasonable!!
Oh, and what a cute picture of you and Valerie!! :happy:
