following along. Congrats on the move!
This is my 2nd favorite resort and I think the perfect "1st" resort for baby! Doesn't matter to me if it's the GF or VGF - it's still the GFThe Grand Floridian. I wanted to stay somewhere new and we had a small travel splurge budget from our house sale so I new DD’s first stay had to be there.
Ooh the WL one sounds delicious! This will spoil where our last stay was but they had a dole whip pineapple one at the Poly and it was incredible!This is my 2nd favorite resort and I think the perfect "1st" resort for baby! Doesn't matter to me if it's the GF or VGF - it's still the GF
I had a celebration cupcake at WL earlier this month and it was delicious! Dark chocolate ganache with dark chocolate frosting and a birthday cake center and filling; Mm-MM! I like how the different resorts have different ones.
I’m hoping moving down here will expose DD to more kids her age - back in Denver DH and I had been working from home since the start of her pandemic so she never got to go to day care or anything to meet babies her own age.What a wonderful "Standard" view! The little splash area over there is so cute! I totally agree about the lack of socialization for the pandemic babies. S LOVES being near other kids her age, she was so isolated her first year of life. Several of our friends have kids about her age and they just dont get to hang out the way we all dreamed about. But thankfully that is starting to change!
Sounds like a great first day, and it probably helped her get used to her surroundings verses the overstimulation of the park. Cannot wait to see how she liked her first park!
My sister has a pandemic baby and it took a long time for her little girl to really get used to us! We saw her but not as much as we would have and it was hard. But they will all get there!DD is definitely a water baby but is still getting used to crowded pools. She hated the buckets that tipped water in the splash area but was fascinated with the other kids - one thing pandemic babies have missed is the chance to socialize so she’s slowing gaining confidence around others.
I’m hoping DD gets better with experience - so far she’s only managed to see her grandparents on one side in person so each new experience is getting her a little more used to it.My sister has a pandemic baby and it took a long time for her little girl to really get used to us!

Sounded like a nice relaxing time.
I definitely wouldn’t be racing back to Chef Mickeys either. Honestly most sit down places at Disney are just far too expensive now with really limited menus so unless that changes will be doing quick service more often that not when we visit!It was good to learn how she liked or rather didn't like the characters. I am sure to her they are HUGE! I am sure over time she will learn to love them.
Chef Mickey's was a one and done for us. We did it on our first trip and it was fine but there are so many other options out there.
