I know, I promised to have this done about a week and a half ago, and it’s not yet finished. At least we’re near the end!
To be honest, by day 7 we were ready to go home. We were tired, it was hot, and we missed our own beds. We pretty much cancelled all of our Friday plans and instead opted to hit the water park (and we made it)!
We let E wake up on her own and after 45 minutes of applying sunscreen to her and the rest of our little family (we’re all very, very pale) we went down to board a bus to Typhoon Lagoon with my parents!
We had a very nice time at Typhoon Lagoon. I purchased a water proof camera (note to self- bring this WITH you, they’re $20 at Disneyworld) but haven’t had a chance to upload the photo’s, and let’s be honest, we don’t need to wait anymore. It was at Typhoon Lagoon that E finally found an “alligator” which she had been looking for the.entire.trip. She was so excited to play with him (he was a foam play piece in the kids water area).
After enjoying some time in the lazy river we headed back to our hotel to get ready for dinner at 1900 Park Fare at The Grand Floridian. This was by far one of my favorite meals. The buffet was full of options (even with my seafood allergy) and the food was delicious. It was also a character meal presented by Cinderella (my favorite), her prince, and the highlight of the evening Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drusilla (the step sisters). They were an absolute riot!
After dinner we walked around the property of the Grand Floridian and absolutely fell in love. It’s such a gorgeous property with such a laid back and relaxed atmosphere. We absolutely felt like we were on vacation walking around the resort. Even Miss E adored having a pianist in the lobby of the hotel and showed her appreciation by dancing to his “jams”.
As we were leaving the resort to head back to our “home away from home” A & I both agreed that if we ever did in fact come back to Walt Disney World (you know, in a decade) this would be the only hotel we’d consider staying at. Little did we know how much truth there was to that statement.
