But we didn’t. I have no idea where the time went. It seems like from the minute we landed in Orlando, to the time we were picked up by the Magical Express to go home, we did not stop. We managed to get in so many things, and yet, we still missed others. Which, of course, gives us a fine reason to go back.
A few details to begin, and then of course, my memory is foggy, so I will just randomly babble on as I do remember things.
We arrived on Tuesday, Aug. 2nd. The online check in process worked wonderfully. I walked right up to the counter, was handed my packet and keys, our room was ready, so off we went. 6th floor, courtyard view, it was lovely.
As is our tradition, we had dinner reservations at the Crystal Palace. First, though, we needed to activate our annual passes. The quickest way to do this, was to go to the TTC and then head to Magic Kingdom from there. Turned out not to be quick, but nonetheless, our passes were activated and we were off.
Crystal Palace is a huge favorite of ours. Love the buffet, love the characters. HOWEVER, I was not prepared for the increase in price! Just how long has it been since we were at WDW??? I usually do not pay any attention to prices while at Disney, but I have to say, I nearly choked when I saw that dinner had increased to $41 a person. :eek: Well, live and learn, and we did enjoy it, so, I really shouldn’t complain. But, I think we will stick with lunch at the Crystal Palace from now on.
