Walt Disney World: 17 Sept 2011

After a breakfast from contempo cafe of deep fried yummy goodness, we decided to pool hop over to Wilderness Lodge


On the boat to Wilderness Lodge


Pool at Wilderness Lodge

The it was back to BLT to get changed for our lunch in Animal Kingdom at yak & yeti....a meal we enjoyed last year and wanted to do again.


But of course it rained so hard it hurt my head.....and animal kingdom is NOT the best park to be at in a torrential downpour..although it does empty the park rather quickly..


So off to yak and yeti we slosh....the foyer was jamed packed full of walk in's so a bit of a nightmare trying to check-in......but eventually we were seated and ordered....
tempura prawns..DH had the surf and turf..


Bit disappointed, but I had broken my cardinal rule..never try to repeat a great experience..only leads to disappointment.
Oh well...Onto the train we go
where we bumped into a few old friends..let your conscience be your guide




Make an effort to go out and check out the conservation station ....its a little known attraction but worth the effort, trains run every 10 minutes or so, and the themeing is great.

Did the safari, which once again impressed us and meandered back to the buses to get to Epcot for our Dinner at Coral reef...

Coral Reef @ Epcot

DH's dinner

My Chicken

Dessert

Coral Reef is always great for somewhere to eat with healthy food and entertainment. Nice meal had by all.

I really enjoy Epcot at night as the park is closing, you can sit with a drink and people watch as everyone scurrys out to try to beat the crowds, a great time to shop or just sit and listen to the park music.
Here's some shots the DH did of the Innovations fountain at Epcot






Good day had by all.....


##I too enjoy a good slide night...and a picture tells a thousand words..

WDW- 18 September 2011

So today was spent bumming around the pool at contemporary & the polynesian resort [ we love this idea of pool hopping] then tonight it's EMH at MK.


Poly quiet pool


Contemporary pool

A full day spent in the sun then requires a little "nanna" nap which seemed to last longer than the scheduled hour....

But after feeling refreshed and renewed, I attached our flag to the balcony


Had some dinner




such proud moments......anyway, got sorted and we saunted over to the Magic kingdom around 11 pm ish...all halloween decorations were up and it looked great





a quick ride on buzz


space mountain, haunted mansion etc etc.....then back home to Bay lake at 1.30 am...

Another great day had by all..

WDW & Outlet shopping - 19 September 2011

One of my most favourite days at disney world...outlet shopping!!!!!

Anyway first off to magic kingdom for the morning


the worst thing was that this huge crane was working on the castle so every shot we got had it in it........

I had forgotten how hot and humid it got in WDW, luckily you cant see the sweat trickling down my back



crowds were light on, so we got to see and ride a fair bit...
we even did carousel of progress, something the DH hasn't done before..which he really enjoyed. [no accounting for taste]..


bailed before the parade and set off for the outlet stores






DH trying out the new cookie and cream ice cream..he does look a bit smug doesn't he...

Then after helping the US economy with our purchases...which we were very pleased with, although the Disney character store has stuff all in it, and not really reduced, so that was a tad disappointing...
anyway... dropped the stuff off, had a shower and then headed for Hollywood studios & star tours.





Rode it 3 times, the DH squealed like a teenage girl that was meeting Justin bebier..he loved it.

So after spending a bit of time doing MGM..sorry, Hollywood studios..we dragged our tired but star wars happy butts back to the clown car and headed on back to the ranch......still having enough energy to go for a dip in the contemporary pool....grabbing some snacks [I have to use my snack credits..really].

Happy days..

WDW- Down town Disney & MNSSHP- 20th September 2011.

So today is a combination of pool time, down-town Disney and then the big Mickey's not so scary Halloween party tonight....so pacing one selves is the key.

So off in the clown car we go..ok i just love putting in this picture


Heading straight for the giant disney store.....bought our "bits and bobs" which we got sent back to our resort...
then on to t rex





to order this






Yes we are embarrassed, yes we do have no shame..but God it tasted good, and the waffle fries are to die for..ok.. have a coronary for


T Rex gift shop...few bargains, nothing earth shattering.

Then staggering in the heat and with tummy's full of deep fried yummy yummy goodness we squeeze ourselve back into the clown car and head back to the big top...aka..BLT.

changed and packing refreshments we head for..The Pool!!!




So, after lounging all afternoon by the pool enjoying the sun and pool side entertainment we head off to prepare for...MNSSHP.

Now this year I have made an effort with our costumes, beating last years effort of...Nothing. So be nice, its the thought that counts.


Cheshire cat

crazy rabbit from AIW....

Welcome to your nightmare......you think the crowds are small???

yes they are.....

NOT!!!!!!!!!!

This line is of the happy people waiting for one or two lollies

but this is what I got.....

Not a proud moment, but hey, she filled up my bag at the end of the night...anyway.....

Dinner was had after rides were rode, stares were stared and lollies were sourced...

So overall great night, weather was hot, humid but clear and I scored at least 6kgs of lollies/chocolates etc....not bad!

Ended up home around 1 am......a happy happy cat

WDW- Cinderella's castle lunch - Epcot- 21 September 2011
Part 2....

Ok, so where was I up too......oh thats right, lounging by the pool..
So after tanning up to meet the princesses, we toddle back to our castle, shower and pretty up to meet them.

Leaving our clown car at home [ i just have to include the photo].....

we venture by foot to MK, walking along the path leading from Contempoary to MK........
Now remember its hot hot hot, the MK is nuts around lunch time anyway, and when you get within a mile of the castle you better be watching your feet, as small maurauding princesses are rampaging.
Not a relaxing way to start the experience, and then we had the nerve..I say the nerve of turning up 15 minutes early.
Side note: The DH wasnt too chuffed about going in the first place, I had dragged him from pool heaven, made him put on shoes and now he has to wait to even get in the place, oh and did I mention the small kids and heat.
Anyway, we seek shelter in the princess shop....I know, what the hell was I thinking, as if it wasnt traumatic enough on the poor boy already.
Finally, we go back and check in ....to then be corraled in another waiting room with 2 chairs and 100 people in a four by four space....can you see where this may be going.

After getting pic taken with Cindy


we are ushered into another parking spot, told to sit and then we wait again.....

Finally.........we are taken up the stairs [ after being told ladies loo isnt working up the top , so if nature calls I'd have to toddle back down to use the one on ground level]....can you hear him tutting about now...

To be seated in the castle....[insert trumpet blast here].


our view from our window seat




So we sit, we are excited...then this rude family of 8 rock up to sit next to me, the fat spanish dude nearly wipes me out with his backpack and then his fat butt...the mood rapidly disapears from then....they are loud, annoying and speaking spanish. Ok, I did get him back when he encroached in my space by stabbing him "accidently" in the butt with my wand...seriously, I could have clobbered him with it.And my DH, being ever so vigilant to the mood and feeling of his DW......so was getting agravated and annoyed as well.....
Oh well....we still had a nice meal...with a wand and a sword to take home

So back to the food.....

DH's meal

Mine

Dessert


So all in all, we had a fair time at cindy's.....food was great, server was fine ...just so crowded and loud.


Me meeting Snowy....

The princesses were awesome, they chatted to everyone, and made you feel special. They are so in character.They even made Dh blush..so really it was money well spent.

So now that I made the boy go thru this ordeal, i ask...what do you want to do now.....ok you guessed it..back to the pool.

The afternoon was spent de-stressing by the pool, having a nanna nap then getting ready for our meal at Epcot...Le Chefs de france..
Now I have RAVED about how great this place is to DH [ you can see whats going to happen cant you]....


My seafood meal

DH's duck which he said was fantastic

DH's dessert

Mine....

After waiting 25 minutes to be seated for a 8pm meal, he's hungry, tired, sunburnt and annoyed....but after the air con, the bread and a few glasses of water he was a happy man again.....

The service was typically french..they ignore you the first 15 minutes, insult you the next 30, then suck up the final 10.........although their short black was awesome and worth the bother.

So waiting til the fireworks finished, we meandered out, taking our time watching all the drunks try to walk straight, smelling the roses. Monorail back to Contemporary, quick snack @ contempo then a swim and bed.

Interesting day to say the least......travel, a great way to get to know your partner

WDW- Resort hopping -Artist Point - MK - 23 September 2011

So today is spent catching the monorail to the 2 other monorail resorts : Polynesian & Grand Floridian.

Breakfast was at Kona Cafe @ Poly resort...a favourite of ours as they make great plunger coffee and a nice cooked breakfast for a decent price.


Aloha DH......


Ok, not the most attractive photo...but I'm so happy to get a decent coffee...finally...


My healthy breakfast




DH's Tonga toast

After breaky, we like to walk for a bit and check things out...so heres a few shots of the Poly resort







this was taken from a great little look out at poly, would be fantastic for a wedding.....or proposal.....or just to spend a quality moment with someone you love...

So onto the boat we get, on our way to the Grand...





A well fed and happy DH...


I have no idea what I am doing....something stupid most likely if true to form

So we arrive at the Grand, and I'm wanting to check grand cafe menu for later, do some shopping and try to use my snack credits....




Grand Floridian cafe...which we didn't end up eating at....next time


Foyer of grand, but it looks even better at Christmas..with a gingerbread house and everything..so make sure you go have a look...





So after spending a small fortune...the boutique stores are great.....we caught the monorail back to MK.......then walked back to the contemporary.

By then it was Nanna nap, packing & Pool time.

We had reservations for Artist point at 8pm, but tried to get them earlier using the automated phone reservation system.....if you have a strong Aussie accent.. don't bother..it doesn't understand you! Grrrrrrrrrr....

So, having 2 TS credits left each, we decided to try Artist Point...I was there in 2006 with my youngest and we enjoyed it.

The DH wasn't as easily impressed, he said he enjoyed 50's prime time better..oh well.......and i don't think we even took photos.....if I find them I'll down load them later..

So back to the resort & finalise packing as we were leaving tomorrow.....so sad.

WDW - MK - Tampa - LA - 24 September 2011

Such a sad day..the day of departure...all the excitement and expectation is spent and now its just left to pay the bill and pile into you're little clown car and go.

here's a photo of the clown car


Just a quick side note..the best $4 I ever spent was paying the valet @ Contemporary to load our luggage into the above mentioned clown car....I wish I had videoed it...seriously funny.
Sorry no photos..but picture 4 LARGE suitcases, 2 back packs, 2 smaller bags....the DH was so embarrassed.....worth the cost of the trip I say

Anyway, went over to Captain cooks quick food place at Poly for breaky

Ok, so I had a burger........


DH had healthy yummy noodles...good for him


Its a self order place, so expect to wait if people have no idea what they doing....

So monorailing it to MK, we walk around saying goodbye to our favourite place... tommorowland





The crowds were heavier than we had seen, being a Saturday we were still surprised as we had enjoyed relatively no crowd conditions all week.





So, back to BLT to get our luggage, load/cram it into the clown car

and drive off to Tampa...

The trip was ....interesting....took about 1.25 hrs, 4 lane highways, speed limit..whatever.Hit a huge storm just at Tampa, we couldn't see 3 feet in front of us but did anyone slow down...HELL NO!!!! Thank god for our GPS.

So dropped off car, which by the way ran on fumes for the last 20 mile, and checked in with one of the nicest check in ladies at Delta

....hardly no line for security, the TSA agents were really friendly, my Aussie shirt helps...chatted about Sydney etc....

So off to the Delta lounge to wait for our flight

### check out my new coach backpack on the seat
Good flight, non-stop to LA...gotta love first class, and it had in seat entertainment so DH happy boy..great meal [no photos...] and we arrived 9 pm LA time...1 am orlando time...so caught shuttle to LAX Hilton, checked into hotel and slept the sleep of the dead.

DISNEY CRUISE TO MEXICO- 25 September 2011

Ok, so today we are leaving the LAX Hilton [which is awesome, and the beds are great, oh and so is the gym].
We have to meet the DCL bus to the port at the delta terminal at 10.30am, so catching a shuttle to the airport we arrive 30 min early and they are waiting for us...gotta love the mouse.

So off we go to the port.......

Arriving early, we walk straight in.....we are in a cat 5 balcony stateroom...but I had already asked DH on the bus..."what do you say we see if they have upgrades, and how much $$$ are you willing to pay"...he replied "sure, and $##".

So smiling as we check in I ask, and they said yes they have a few suites free, and its $$$$$...DH nearly has a heart attack [I'd always wanted to use a de-fib]......so we upgrade to a cat T concierge suite.....SCORE!!!!!!!

now I chose mid ship deck 8.....idiot, as I find out later...the damn thing is right under the kid pool & deck....sounded like a jumbo landing every time someone moved a chair......but that's later.


happy me

So you board first, they take you to the Cadillac lounge and look after you until the suite is ready....not like everyone else who has to bum it on deck..





This is where we met our concierge Alice from Italy...Alice you ROCK!!!!

So after eating and drinking we go for a wander, have a look around and finally its ready to see our suite....














So after squealing like a girl...and that was just DH...we go upstairs for our customary cocktail of the day...




So if you have sailed before you get castaway club gifts.....


So anyway, back down , get changed and then...to the pool!!!! But have to grab a quick snack first....




Then of course where do aussies tend to go...to the coffee shop...quiet cove..good coffee with soy...



and cake of course...

We are now at sea.......


ok, have to go have farewell drinks..but will be back to finish this one

Cruise- 25 September 2011
part 2...


Ok, where was I up too....oh thats right.
We had swum, had our coffee and moved suites.....I didnt mention that earlier did I.

The noise was so bad, the DH was threatening to jump ship, so Alice our fantastic concierge moved us to a spare 1 bed suite fwd on deck 8......so much quieter, and she saved me from tossing him a life ring.....

Oh, quick mention...shout out to a certain disser & crew who were standing next to us at cattle...I mean life boat drill.....so great to meet you & yours...now I can put face to "name".....

DH went off for a pedi, while I check out the gym....very nice, awesome equipment and great weight selection.

So, after finally tracking down our poor luggage...remember this is the 3rd room we have been allocated.....its 6.30pm and we need to frock up for 8.15 pm dinner....

Dinner tonight is at Titans




so sorry but that's it folks for the meal photos...I think we were too busy chatting to take happy snaps.......

But we did have a sneaky look in oceaneers club...for the youngens, so have a sticky at these...








so a great day was had...and gifts were always left on our table for when we came back


And finally, the most important piece of reading you will do on any cruise......

the cocktail list

Day at sea- 26 September 2011



Now as the title suggests, we are at sea. For those of you who haven't cruised, it goes something like this......

*The young kids + parental units are up and fed and at the kids clubs/hogging deck chairs by 9am
*the old are up, fed and hogging the deck chairs by 9am
*the hungover are in bed, dont bother looking for movement til 2pm
*the rest of us order room service breakfast around 10.30....then meander to the pool around 12, only to moan about the old sunburnt people asleep & hogging the deck chairs

You see what i mean about sea days.....the gym is full, the pool is full,the buffet is full, the tiny kiddy pool has been emptied twice before 10am due to "incidents of a hazardous nature".....note: its fun to watch the cleaning and re-filling...

I digress......anyway, sea day is all about getting your sea legs, trying out the spa treatments, enjoying the company of strangers in the tiny tiny pool and buying stuff.

Ok, we had booked a Palo Brunch for 11.30am......I wake sleeping beauty who was dreaming of his beloved clown car

I couldn't help myself......

So we get up, get dressed and get to Palo at 11.27am.......only to be TURNED AWAY.....OMG!!!!
the humiliation, the angst, the what the hell....
OK, so I was wearing a cookie monster T-shirt and denim shorts, but DH was wearing shoes , so what more do you want from us.
Dress regs.....hey mate , were Australian, and I left my dress thongs at home.
So after DH stops the eye bulgy thingy that only men can do when fighting for something he really didn't want to do in the first place.....he mentions we are in suite #####...and wow..shock horror ..there is an opening for whatever morning and time I desire....this is the same thing that was TOTALLY BOOKED UP on line a few days before.

So after booking for " when hell freezes over"...naaa.....the last morning....we tuck our docked Australian kelpie tails between our denim shorted thighs and make our way back to our suite to re think, re group and re gress to *****y year nine girls and the bugger grrrrr of dress codes.

Here's a photo of what we were wearing.......you be the judge


So we are now hungry, slightly embarrassed and did I mention hungry..so off to Parrot cay for lunch..






So then the afternoon was spent in the pool, working on those tans to torment others when we got home....ok, the DH goes red, he peals then goes white...but really, its the thought that counts.


Tequila tasting at 5pm.....nothing else needs to be said..

move along..nothing to see here.......

Tonight is the Golden Mickeys and Formal Night...we had done golden mickeys last cruise, so just opted to do formal dinner..any excuse to frock up.

Formal night Animators palate..

Ok, once again forgot to take pics of the food, and the colour show wasn't tonight, its tomorrow, so the dining room stayed black and white.....

Finished the evening with a stroll on deck under the Mexican moon....
