Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Lobby

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Lobby

We were there the week just before Thanksgiving - it is my favorite Disney place to stay.  We didn't realize it would be decorated for Christmas - and the entire place was.  The resorts and all the parks.  I really cannot recommend it enough :)  They played Christmas music in the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios and I think even Epcot.

My whole family are Disney fans - so yeah, I took my three teens.  I know most people take small children - and we did too when they were small.  But it only gets better as you get older.  As long as you wear Crocs :p

With regard to the Grand Floridian - we've stayed there about four times now and I think it's time for them to refurbish the rooms.  They are looking a bit dated.  But honestly you cannot beat the ultimate convenience of being right on the monorail line.  Screw those long waits for the buses. 

We ate at Be Our Guest the first night we were there - and to our surprise the food was delectable.  Considering how many people they serve, I am amazed at the quality they provided.  

I am looking forward to them finishing New Fantasyland - they still aren't done.  Right outside Be Our Guest was Gaston's village, which is adorable and you can go to his Tavern and it looks like it was plucked right out of the film.  Loved that!  They are building a Dwarf Mine roller coaster at present - and it looks like it's going to be amazing.  

We'll definitely be going back.  Disney is just one of those places <3


Merry Christmas, 2013!
