I really had no idea describing my vacation would take this many posts- sorry! feel free to skip if you don’t love Disney as much as I do– which btw is crazy talk. Who doesn’t love Disney?
The first thing we did at Disney was explore a few of the resorts. We went to The Wilderness Lodge
I got a little camera happy! I took even more at the Wilderness Lodge, but I won’t bore you with too many pictures. I was just so excited to be there. It was like stepping into a dream. I’d been wanting to go to Disney World for as long as I can remember. And here I was. Standing there, seeing the beauty and the creativity and the wonder of it all. It makes you realize how important passion is in life. You have to have passion to have fun, to enjoy the little things. I had a lot of passion at Disney.
The next place we visited was the Contemporary Resort. It was not nearly as exciting as the Wilderness Lodge because it was all modern architecture and furniture. It didn’t have the magical atmosphere that the other resorts did, but it did have the monorail running through it!
We hopped on the monorail and headed to the Polynesian Resort. The Polynesian was BEAUTIFUL. Gorgeous. And it smelled delicious! There’s a restaurant there called Ohona (if you remember from Lilo & Stitch, “Ohona” means family) where they serve the customers family style. Waiters walk around with huge trays full of kabobs and according to Brooke, the bread is delicious. I think you have to have a reservation to eat there, so we didn’t, but I told Brooke that next time (and yes- there will most definitely be a next time) I visit, we are eating there.
We did eat at the Polynesian Resort, though, just not at Ohona. We ate Pineapple Dole Whip at the cafe on the bottom floor. It was actually a little bit taller than this picture, but we all took a bite before I thought to pull out the camera. And yes, we ate it all:
After the Polynesian resort, we went to The Grand Floridian Resort. It was spectacular. I want to live in this hotel. That’s all I’m going to say. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
After seeing the beauty at the resorts, we went to Downtown Disney so that I could get all my souvenirs. We decided it would be best to get them the night before so that I didn’t have to carry them around all day on Sunday at the parks.
Saturday was eventful. Sunday was magical. There’s just no other word for it. Look for the final installment tomorrow night!

I loved this because even though I’ve been to Disney World I haven’t visited the resorts or Downtown Disney…but I’ve always had dreams about the Polynesian resort! LOL…also I think the Grand Floridian is the resort that the Tanner family stayed at when Full House filmed that awesome Disney World episode (and yes I’m a loser, hahahaha 😉 )
About the Tanner family- that was one of the first things I said when we walked inside!! haha, so you are not the only loser. And I think I did make at least one “Michelle as Princess for the Day” reference while we were walking around the park.
