Good morning! I am headed out for a run, but wanted to blog first about our stay at Disney’s Polynesian Resort for three nights before the cruise. We drove to Disney at 3 am on May 26th, and got there around 12:30. We were taken to the concierge check in, and our room was ready! We had the BEST room and location. It was on the first floor of the Hawaii building, second room, lagoon side. (1502)

We had a great patio we could walk right out to the beach from, and we were close to the lobby/lounge/front of the building.

It was a little hot out, but not too terribly bad or humid.

we ooed and aaahhed over our view, unpacked a little, and got ready to head to the Magic Kingdom!


But not before hitting up the concierge lounge for some snacks!

We headed to the Magic Kingdom, rode Pirates, peoplemover, and Buzz Lightyear, and got a nice treat because it was getting H-O-T!






it wasn’t too crowded, but we were tired from driving, so we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner.

we had appetizers in the lounge then drove to Yachtsman Steakhouse!



The food was great, and we had a good time. After dinner, we made it back to the lounge to have dessert and then watched Wishes from our patio. The music was piped in, too! The beach was full of people, it was so nice to have our chairs and be in our PJ’s then just go in the room when it was over!

    I always love the Mickey ice cream heads, but this last trip my favorite food actually came from the Coral Reef in Epcot. I had the Mahi with the lava cake for dessert and it was absolutely divine! Thankfully, the Disney fan magazine has printed the recipe. I’ve actually been thinking about using it on the tilapia I have hiding in my freezer.

      did you book directly through Disney? if so, I can takeover your reservation, doesn’t cost you anything, and take care of everything for you from your dining to your documents, to, well, anything!

    Stan….Stan is my favorite food from WDW. (Translation: Stan is the name we gave to the lobster I ate at Narcoosees the first time I ever went to WDW.)

    My favorite Disney food – Wow! That’s a tough one! The Dole Whips, of course, and the last time I was there, I loved the S’mores at Prime Time Diner in Hollywood Studios.
