A morning in Walt Disney World Resort
This doesn’t mean I went to a Disney Park on a beautiful Sunday morning.
As I always say, and most of the time I prove my friends wrong that Disney World is not just for kids, adults can enjoy a Disney morning, afternoon or evening without kids.
Naturally if you are thinking about princesses and taking a picture with Mickey and Minnie, that’s a whole different story. Although, you can always let your inner child out and have fun.
This past Sunday with Trevor, I made reservations to have breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe located in the gorgeous Victorian style hotel: Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Located in front of the Magic Kingdom park.
You can either get there by car (make sure you have a reservation to go in) or monorail. Using the last transportation, first you need to get to the TTC (Ticket and Transportation Center or the Magic Kingdom parking lot) and take the monorail to the hotels.
Delicious full breakfast at the cafe. I had The Grand Floridian Breakfast with scramble eggs, bacon, sausages, a mini biscuit and hash browns with cheese. Mouthwatering. Just writing this makes me want to go back again. I also had coffee and a mimosa. I’ve tried the cappuccinos and they are tasty too, in case you want something different than regular coffee.
Trevor had The Benedict, he said it was really good. Although, he also had hash browns and for $4.50 we both thought it was too much for that little piece with no shape at all. I mean, my dish came with hash browns as well, but with cheese, it had a better presentation and it was delicious. Of course, you can always get something different as fruits…
After our tasty breakfast, we went for a walk around the Grand Floridian Resort. It’s beautiful. It’s not my favorite but it’s among my -maybe- top 5 Disney Resorts.
From there we took the monorail to the gorgeous Polynesian Resort. This was Trevor’s favorite. Also among my favorites. We walked around the area. We visited the amazing pool with a slide and even a volcano, and you can actually enjoy the view to the Cinderella’s Castle in Magic Kingdom.
I sometimes have had dinner at the Polynesian Resort, and while I’m there, by Magic Kingdom’s fireworks time (around 10pm), I visit the beach area where you can have a nice view to the show plus the actual music playing in the background. Perfect way to end a day.
One of my favorite place of the Polynesian are the Bungalows. It makes you feel in Bora Bora or some place like that. They even have a small (very small) pool at the private deck with a stunning view of the lake, other resorts in the area and of course, the Magic Kingdom park. Another great place to watch the fireworks… although you might have to pay $400 or more for a night. I don’t know how many months do I have to save so I can stay here for at least a night, but… maybe I’ll save it for the real Bora Bora I’m dying to go.
Because of the awful and melting heat (about 100F) I needed to have a Pineapple Float. They are very popular in Magic Kingdom but they also have them in this resort. So refreshing and delicious.
After a walk around the Polynesian Resort, we went back to the monorail so we could go back to the car at the Grand Floridian Resort.
This is a small tour you can enjoy during Christmas time as well, specially because of the beautiful decoration you’ll see. You can also add the Contemporary Resort (which together with the Polynesian were the 1st to open in 1971).
