    I should make the 'Ohana bread pudding sometime! It would be nice to be able to have it when I wasn't so stuffed from all of the food there! :lmao:

    Thank you! It was a perfect way to start the honeymoon - nice and relaxing and romantic. :cloud9:

    I'm glad you are finally feeling better about the Poly! I actually thought about you guys when we were checking in. I was hoping that we wouldn't end up with a dirty room like you! :laughing:

    I had no idea there was a man entertainer, too! I've never seen him before!

    Yeah, you would have thought the rings would have given it away! I guess we should have worn our Just Married buttons, but I thought it might clash with my dress! :lmao:

    I never even knew there was a man - we've never gotten him either, but I sure hope we do next time! I agree that they should just do nice music, or maybe even have some sort of cut-off for the "entertainment" - like from 5-8 they do the kid stuff and then the rest of the night it's a little more adult friendly. :confused3

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who apparently looks younger than I am! It sounds like it happens to a lot of us. I guess that will work well for us as we age, at least! :laughing:

    Wow, I can't believe that guy thought you weren't even old enough to drink coffee! I can understand a waiter needing to ask for ID, but do they have to make comments about it? I highly doubt they would say - wow, 24 - and I thought you were 40! :lmao: It seems like they should have the same filter for either situation. :confused3

    I can't believe they gave you children's menus! Yeah, I guess it's a little irritating now, but we'll be glad one day! :laughing:

    I should have said something to her, but I was in too much shock! I couldn't believe how angry she sounded! :eek:

    Yes, our "cousin" carded me. I definitely don't think he believed I could have anything with alcohol in it! :lmao: And yes, the music was pumped in! I was worried it was going to be a little too quite to get the full effect, but it's actually really easy to hear everything.

    That is too funny! I guess the waiters at Disney are so used to telling kids what they can have that they sometimes forget about the adults! :laughing:


    I agree! I think it would be nice to have a few days (or even a few hours) where you don't have to worry about that woman being there. She's just a little too much for me! :headache:

    We love 'Ohana, too! I'd say it's probably our top favorite restaurant at Disney (we have a lot of favorites! :laughing:) Definitely try Wishes from the beach sometime if you have the chance! It is a great view and much more relaxed than watching it in the park!

    :welcome: Thanks so much for joining in! What part of Georgia are you in?

    I agree - it was a very unnecessary comment! People really should think about what they say before they say it!

    I wish you could get Zach to agree, too! It's such a beautiful resort. It's going to be hard not to stay there in the future, but I have a feeling that the prices will probably keep us away. :headache: For a special trip, it's definitely worth it, though. :goodvibes

    Oh good! I'm glad I'm not the only one! I kept saying "look, it's a star!" :lmao:

    Thank you! And :welcome: So glad you're joining in!

    I love your report so far. It sounds like you chose the perfect place for your honeymoon. Your dad sounds so sweet. I can't wait to hear about the rest of your trip!

    Ugh! I am SO late and I'm already stuck down on page 10! I'm so glad you started your Disneymoon TR! I have been dying to read this one! It looks like you guys are off to a great start! I want to stay at the Poly SO badly! It's gorgeous! :lovestruc

    What was up with that lady at Ohana? I didn't like her when we saw her in December. Plus, that's so weird what she said to Miguel about you. It's none of her business who he's with, no matter how old you look! :mad:

    Haha, sorry. I hate it when people do stuff like that!

    I can't wait for your next update! :goodvibes

    Thanks for reading along! So glad you are enjoying it! :goodvibes

    :welcome: Thanks for joining in!

    Yay! So glad you made it over Joni! :goodvibes We definitely feel in love with the Poly on this trip. It's so beautiful there! :cloud9:

    It sounds like no one likes the lady at 'Ohana! Why is she there?! :laughing:

    :welcome: So glad to have you following along! :goodvibes

    I know exactly where that is! I'm in southern Gwinnett county, about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. It's a small world! ;)

    DAY 1 – Pt. 1

    Our first full day at Disney started off bright and early. I set my alarm for 6:30 and didn’t have any trouble waking up shortly thereafter! I quickly got ready and got our daily ziplocks out of the drawer (I just love how simple this method is)! By the time I had my park bag packed, Miguel had showerd and gotten dressed and we were ready to go! We followed right along with our running theme of being right on time and we left our room at 7:27 – 3 mintues before my planned 7:30
    [​IMG]

    If you can't tell - we were really excited!
    [​IMG]

    In to the GCH we went!
    [​IMG]

    Since this was our first time taking the monorail over to the MK, I wasn’t sure exactly how much time we would need to make it to the park in plenty of time for our 8:05 ADR at Crystal Palace, while still leaving some time for empty park pictures!

    Just as we approached the Poly’s monorail platform, a train pulled away, but luckily another was only about 5 minutes behind it! We climbed aboard and enjoyed the quick and easy ride over to the Magic Kingdom.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The park entrance was already pretty crowded, which surprised me since it was still over an hour away from rope drop. There was a CM standing out directing the guests with reservations, so we followed his instructions and entered through the side entrance with plenty of time to snap some pictures before we needed to check in at CP.

    I was happy to see the PP photographers were all ready out since I had pre-ordered the CD for the first time and was determined to get my money’s worth! We stopped for a few shots and were told congratulations many times thanks to our Just Married buttons!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We wondered down Main Street and turned the corner to find that the CP entrance was just as crowded as the park entrance. We already knew that it was going to be a high-crowd week! Miguel stayed behind while I went to check in.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Luckily, it only took about 10 minutes before our buzzer was going off and my name was called. In to CP we went and we were led to our table that was decorated for our celebration.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since we’ve only ever eaten lunch here, we were very excited to try the breakfast. I was especially excited to the famous puffed French toast. First though, we needed to visit with some old friends!
    [​IMG]

    Pooh was so cute – when he saw our Just Married buttons he stood with his arms in front of his chest as to not make Miguel jealous! When Eyeore came by, he broke out of his sad shell and celebrated our honeymoon by “raising the roof”! I wish I had of caught that on camera. It was so cute!

    Finally, it was time to make our way to the buffet!
    [​IMG]

    Is it just me, or are the plates at CP really small? They seemed like appetizer plates to me. With so many yummy foods calling my name, I decided to remedy the situation by just taking two plates! I figured that would be easier than having to go back to the buffet and I don’t like piling my food on top of each other. From the left going clockwise I had the vegetable fritatta, raspberry crumb cake, Mickey waffle, sausage, bacon and a biscuit with gravy.
    [​IMG]

    Plate number two had two pieces of the puffed French toast, breakfast pizza, strawberry yogurt and the potato casserole.
    [​IMG]

    Miguel had no problem with pilling his up, though! From what I can tell, he had the potatoes, breakfast pizza, a piece of toast, regular eggs, vegetable frittata, bacon, sausage, and a strawberry.
    [​IMG]

    We both really enjoyed our food. To me, the standouts were definitely the puffed French toast, the raspberry crumb cake and the potato casserole. The gravy for the buscuit was really good, too! There wasn’t a single item that I didn’t like.

    About half-way through our meal Piglet and Tigger came over!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Piglet was just as sweet as Pooh and Eeyore and made a big fuss over our buttons. Tigger was pretty boring, though. I think this Tigger was just having an off day, because he had almost made it to our table when the little parade started and when it was over he just decided to skip over an entire section of tables until a CM finally reminded him that he had other parties to visit.


    All in all, we really enjoyed our breakfast at CP. All of the food was really yummy, our server was sweet and attentive and nearly all of the character interactions were great. I’m not sure if we prefer breakfast or lunch at CP since they are both excellent options in their own way, buy I do know that we will definitely be back for breakfast!

    Next Up: Some MK Fun

    Ha ha, I say boo to small plates at the buffet!

    Everything looks really good. I love being on a monorail resort, it makes getting to the Magic Kingdom so much easier.

    That puffed french toast looks really good.....

    I jsut spewed soda all over my computer screen!!! You plate (s) VS Miguel's plates!!!! LOL!!!! TOTALLy me and my DH!!!

    And it looks like O'hana AND CP (bfast) are on my list for next trip!!! We did CP for dinner and enjoyed it, but it looks WAY better than CM for b'fast (which we have done twice)!

    I was hoping you had posted something today...I started back to work after my 10wk maternity leave (I work 2, 12 hour shifts, Sat and Sun) so I was looking forward to coming home and reading something other than patient charts, and you didn't dissapoint!

    I Loved CP when we went there for breakfast on our last trip. Love Winnie the Pooh characters too!
    The Puffed French Toast was a must-try and it was excellent! All the food there is pretty great :) I am glad you had a great breakfast experience there!

    We have never been to the CP, or many other table service restaurants. I don't like to take the time and DH is too cheap. We are usually counter service all the way but we may have to try CP for breakfast. The food looks so good.

    Breakfast at CP looked great. I've heard so many positive things about the puffed French toast...and it looked delicious in your pictures!
    I thought the Eyeore and Miguel picture was hilarious. I don't think I've seen Eyeore put his ears on somebody's head before. :thumbsup2
    Can't wait to see how you spent your MK morning!

    Oh my goodness, I love breakfast at CP. I've never tried the puffed french toast though, so that's on our list of must tries. You guys are so cute with the characters!

    All caught up!!! You are having a great first day so far!!! I hear you about being perceived as young. Firstly, I have JUST (at 33) stopped getting carded for R rated movies. Secondly, you would not believe how rude people were when I was pregnant (with my first, at 24, especially). People would GAPE at dh and I and ALWAYS look for a wedding ring. The best was when I was 9 months pg with my 3rd. We were at sam's club and I had my 2 nieces (11 and 9 at the time) with us. Dh had gone off, so I was pushing a 2 year old in the cart, and my 4 year old and 2 nieces were walking next to the cart. It was about to pop, I was so huge. 3 sets of people stopped and stared and one actually pointed. I laughed out loud when I realized I looked like a young mom with 4 kids and 1 on the way. I just smiled, waved, and went on my way! :lmao:

    You are both cuties, by the way. I can't wait to read about the rest of your trip!!!
