Love the new digs! And welcome to our new groupies. . .pull up a rocker and jaw awhile. . .just back from Florida with luvvwl and though it wasn't a scheduled Disney trip, we did manage a day in the World. . .all four parks in one day! We followed it up with dinner at CG, a crowning event for a very special occasion. It was wonderful!

That's what luv said! We actually went down to FL to visit my new granddaughter. . .oh, and to see my daughter and her husband, too. The original plan had us going over for a day with a few cousins, but they wound up leaving a couple of days early. Since luvvwl and I had already planned a day, we followed through with said plans. We hit MK at 8 a.m., found minimal crowds and did a few rides before heading out to EPCOT by 9:40. By then, the Easter crowds were ramping up--we had to climb over planters and benches to get through the gate that said "No bags entrance" since the checking bags "line" was actually a mob of people extending 50 feet back from the check tables. We FP'd Soarin' (3:15! already!), then walked to the boat ramp at the World Showcase entrance where we boated to Boardwalk and walked through their model. . .nice, but I still like my VWL better. From there, we walked all the way to DHS, and by then it was 11. FP times for RnR and ToT were already mid-afternoon which didn't fit with our plans, so we FP'd Star Tours (about 45 minutes from that point, and we realized that FP times are park specific since we also held the FP for Soarin'), and had lunch at the Backstage Express. After hitting ST, we bused to AK to ride EE. We spent 40 minutes in line, and literally just feet away from getting on a train, the ride broke down. No EE for us. By then, it was getting close to 3 p.m., so we bused back to EPCOT and got onto Soarin' in less than 15 minutes. The standby line wait time: 2 hours!

After EPCOT, we bused to WL (where we had parked), walked around and took a few pics (which I'll post later), then changed for our dinner at CG. Tip: the large bathrooms to the right of Sturdy Branches make excellent places to freshen up. We drove over, walked up, and easily made our 5:30 reservation. We asked for and received a window table so that we had gorgeous views of MK. Originally, we had planned to go back to MK for Wishes, but given that was 10 p.m., that we had walked between 6-7 miles, and still had an hour + drive back to my daughter's house, we decided to end our evening at CG.

It was a lovely meal, and though AP is still our sentimental favorite, I have to admit that CG has better quality consistently than does Artist Point. We've never had an off meal or service there, while at AP we occasionally get a below average server or a meal that's not quite right. We soaked up the setting sun's rays and basked in each other's company. Oh, I should mention here that we were celebrating our recent engagement that night, so we received a huge slice of chocolate cake and a table decorated with a bit of pixie dust. It made for a fitting end to a hectic but fun day.

Our next "real" trip to the World isn't until November, and we're already chomping at the bit. . .

Loving the photos - especially the Christmas ones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for fun things to do at the lodge over the Christmas holiday? Things we can't do at other times of the year? What is the sleigh ride like?

Here is a link to a photo gallery of the few shots I took at the lodge last June - http://jenniferdifranco.smugmug.com/...1548&k=K2X7wXq

And here is one for a slideshow from 2009 - http://jenniferdifranco.smugmug.com/...4867&k=PQ7VHQL
