We’ve been back from Walt Disney World for almost a week now. We got home Sunday night, December 5 around 6:30. It was a great week! Lots of memories, lots still left on the “to do list” and lots to do at home! When we got home, our washer was not working right, so the roughly 8 loads of laundry I had to do turned into about 16 loads, because our washer could only handle small loads. I’ve also been catching up at work, cleaning the house and putting up our Christmas decorations. After I pulled everything out of the attic, we remembered we threw out our tree last year, so we had to find time to buy a new one. I also had 2 Christmas parties and volunteered to ring the Salvation Army bell. This blog has been put on the back-burner to say the least!
I loved the Mickey Wreath on the Contemporary Resort! The Gingerbread tree was nice too. I even found a small menorah in the lobby for our Jewish friends. I love how the Monorail takes guests right inside the Resort. How convenient if you are actually staying there! Staying at a Monorail Loop Resort is on my Disney Bucket List, along with having a Character meal at Chef Mickey’s. I had breakfast there on my first trip in 1983, but I don’t remember it- I just have photos to prove I was there!
After oohing and ahhing over the carousel we went to Beaches and Cream to get a table. There was a 30 minute wait, so we had time to walk around the Beach Club and admire the pool and trail around the lake. They were showing the movie “Alice in Wonderland” on the beach, so we watched a few minutes of that! Dinner at Beaches and Cream was great. My hamburger and fries were very tasty and the boys enjoyed their chili dog and roast beef sandwich. C-man wouldn’t eat a thing. After dinner I was too stuffed to get ice cream- which was sad because that was one thing I really wanted to do! JAG got a mint chocolate chip sundae and when he couldn’t finish it, I did get a few spoonfuls of his! One of my WDW goals is to have enough people in my party to order, eat and finish the Kitchen Sink!
