It looks like a lovely afternoon for you four girls. So pretty and delicate. I don't think this is for Mary, the girls and I (I know I wouldn't eat any of those sandwiches). I love that marble floor at the GF too.

It was really wonderful !! I highly recommend it !!

I remember being there in the summer of 2009 and it was SO hot. Sure enough, in came the stretcher to take someone away from the Speedway. Darn summer heat.
We were there that summer as well and that was the hottest it has ever been for us. It wasn't as hot this time, but still pretty hot !!

The main reason that I'm staying at the Beach Club in May is just for the pool. I'm so excited!

That pool ..... is AMAZING !!!

Haha! Putting it in the freezer and making an ice castle. That's pretty cool.

He does some really funny stuff. He thought I would be mad, but it just turned out to be funny.

Nice timing with the fastpasses. Cool that you were able to all go on together.

It really did work out well !!

We liked Enchanted Tales with Belle very much. I like the addition.

Yes, it was very enjoyable. DD was happy with her part in the play. We were lucky to catch it when the wait wasn't so bad.

I am loving the Afternoon Tea! I want to do it. In all my years, still haven't done it.
We very much enjoyed it !! Would definitely do it again.

I would check out the menu at allears.net. They had different options that you might enjoy better. But, you know, it might not be your thing. We really enjoyed it though. I love the GF. Can't wait to stay there someday !!

I think tea sounds so fun....but I don't drink tea...don't like scones and I am not too sure about those sandwiches. Can you just ask for certain ones?

Like I told Kathy, take a look at the menu on Allears.net and see if there is something that you might like. But hey, it might not be your thing. We really enjoyed it though.

I'll check the menu out. Unfortunately I've always been a picky eater.

I'd almost be tempted to go for Mrs. Pott's tea too. Hard to beat some chocolate milk and PB&J.

They seemed perfectly willing to accommodate us. They gave my DD apple juice in her tea pot and since she is allergic to nuts, they gave her just ham and cheese for her sandwiches.

I think you are right when you say that some people are not prepared for how hot it really is. I think most people look at the temps and see low 90's and think "I can handle low 90's". But low 90's with 100% humidity and a heat index of 105 is a completely different animal. It can really get brutal and you need to be prepared.

This was our first time doing the Tea as well and I was so glad we did it. It was amazing !! I highly recommend !!
Okay, what are Frogg Toggs??

I would love to do afternoon tea, but with an 11 year old boy, the odds are against me...

Frogg Toggs are those chamois cloths that are always cool when they are wet. You wear them around your neck to help keep you cool. Google it.

Yeah. Our boys were not too into it either. We really enjoyed it though.

Day 3 – Part 5

After our wonderful tea party at the Grand Floridian, DH drove over and picked us up and we headed back to the Beach Club.

We rested a while and I did some laundry. It started to get super dark outside like it was going to storm any minute. DD wanted to go down to the pool, but it was thundering so we stayed put. After a couple of hours, we went down to the Beach Club Marketplace to get dinner.

DD got the cheese flatbread



She really liked it.

DS got the ham and cheese sandwich – without mustard this time.



He said it was OK. He loved the chips though.

DH and I shared the Turkey sandwich again.



He got the cucumber salad this time. It was pretty good. I only had a few bites since I was still full from the tea.

For dessert, we got DD a cupcake



DH got a fruit tart



And we got DS cheesecake



It was all good enough. We settled in for the night. It never did rain very much though.
