Hey Everyone! From July 31st to August 24th we were eating our way around the "World". We have tonnes of pictures, so stay tuned! Day One: California Grill, Contemporary Resort. We had arrived in WDW earlier that afternoon and waited for our cases so that we would be dressed appropriately for the CG as we were asked to on the ADR line. Our cases arrived and we got showered and changed quickly and headed out to the CG, on the bus and then the Monorail. Gavin LOVES the monorail, I have no idea why. As you will see in our wedding photos, he cannot get enough of them... Upon arriving in the lobby, we made our way to the reservations desk to gain access to the lift! At the top of the lift we got out and were directed to the bar after collecting our buzzer. We sat in the seated area and gazed out of the window for a few minutes. The view is just so amazing and so clear from those windows. It felt so magical and close, and I felt overjoyed inside that the rest of the month I would be spending in this amazing place with the people I loved the most (aside from my furkids at home). We were seated quickly and Gavin and I were really rather annoyed to find that there were SO MANY people in shorts and t-shirts, sandals and flip flops up there! Why is it always one rule for one and one for another? I know Disney does not like to upset people but Gavin and I were prepared not to go because we would have been contravening the dress code, yet there were people here who clearly didn't care. I don't mean to sound harsh, but why have a dress code if it isn't enforced. I would have been so upset if we had missed our reservation because of our lack of trousers for Gav and then found out all these other people were here in their beachwear. Anyway, I digress... We were offered drinks and I noticed Pelligrino was on the menu (if you're a die-hard Father of the Bride fan, you'll remember Howard Weinstein..."Pelligrino, espresso, champagne...?" So Gavin found it amusing that I wanted just that. We were seated right next to the "grill" and we watched the chefs working furiously whilst we contemplated the menu.
