Welcome back! Sorry about Notre Dame but it was probably still a cool experience going to a National Championship game. And atleast you got to go to Disney World!

Oh, I also saw your twitter name in one of your other posts so I started following you on there.

Hi, I'm subscribed to this thread, but I've only been lurking so far. I just wanted to say that I think you do have a future in writing. This TR is so well-written. Thanks for sharing!

We didn't actually have tickets to the game (which, the way it turned out, was just as well), but we did get to visit Miami and see my brother perform in the band events and go to the pep rally on South Beach which was really fun!

Dessert

After dinner at the Royal Palm Club, there was nothing to do but head back up to the fifth floor to watch the sky darken over the Magic Kingdom castle…



…which is a pretty darn nice item to have on your to-do list.



I went back to the room for a bit. Most of the others had gone for a stroll, so I had it all to myself. I watched the new DVC channel. Disney really has hypnotism down to a science…I almost wanted to buy into DVC watching it!



Back in the room, turn-down had been. Sonic was ready for bed, but we couldn’t go to bed just yet – there was still dessert to be had!



That means back to the lovely Royal Palm Club! It’s hard to get tired of this place…



There were cordials set out on the counter, then on the table in the center were the desserts! The selection included...



...fruit tarts...



...raspberry cake...



...orange tarts...



...cream puffs...



...fruit (in case you’re feeling healthy )...



...rice crispie treats...



...more cupcakes...



...trifle...



And the BEST sweets were the chocolate éclairs with chocolate cream!

Unfortunately I ate one éclair and felt completely full. But I did save a few of the other treats and put them in the fridge for the next morning. I do wish they had had more chocolate though – the éclairs were the only chocolate dessert, and one is never enough!



Porthos asked a CM for some chocolate milk (his beverage of choice), and she brought it out for him in a fancy glass. Love it!

After dessert we all went for a stroll out to the boat dock to see the Electrical Water Pageant. The perfect way to end a Grand day!

Wow, they offer such a large variety of desserts! I'd probably eat a pineapple or berry so that I wouldn't feel as guilty, haha.

LOL, I totally agree. Some healthy fruit counteracts all the richer, not-so-healthy sweets, right?
