Chilly's Very Own Fairytale - Day 7

December 31st 2009

We did not want to leave our room at the GF the next morning as we knew it was unlikely we'd ever be staying there again and almost cartainly not in a concierge room. I took advantage of the huge bath to have a swim and we got some breakfast to eat in our room. We packed all our stuff up including my dress and said a sad goodbye to our room but then decided to stop and have some more snacks before getting the monorail back to the Poly.

My Dad was waiting for us in reception as we were spending the day with him before taking him to the airport.

We decided to take my Dad to the Boardwalk to show him round.

We had lunch in the bakery, before making a circuit round the lake. At was during this walk that my Dad completely shocked me by saying "I can see why you keep coming back now". (Since we have been home he has shocked me more by saying he wants to go back).

We headed inside the hotel to have a look around as well.

At some point my Dad realised he'd lost his glasses so we went back to his hotel in the hope that he'd left them in his room, luckily he had and he picked them up at reception. It was then time to take him to the airport. It was an uneventful but profitable trip as my Dad gave me all the dollars he had not spent.

DH and I had time to kill before we had to get ready for our ADR with the rest of our parents so we went to DTD and looked round the shops. Back at the Poly we got dressed up as it was NYE and got the monorail to the Contempory as we were eating at The Wave. Both sets of parents turned up on time and we didn't have to wait long to be seated. Both my Step-Dad and Mum were both now suffering from colds so has just spent a relaxing day at their hotel. DH's parents had gone to Hollywood Studios for the day.

Everyone in enjoyed their meal and we had a nice server except at the start of the meal she said we would get complimentary champagne and then never gave it to us.

As my parents were ill they headed back to their hotel after the meal while we got a lift with DH's parents back to our hotel were I put on a warmer outfit and then we headed to the beach to watch the NYE fireworks. There was a great atmosphere, we set out a blanket to sit on and then put the other one over us. The fireworks were nothing short of spectacular. As we were too busy watching them we didn't really take any photos sorry.

After the fireworks we said goodbye to DH's parents and went back to our room.

a little on the OCD side
very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!
They don't call me "Clever Claire" for nothing!

I'm not surprised you didn't want to leave that room - it looked pretty spectacular.
