We made it! We really made it!
We woke up this morning after a great night of sleep at my Aunt and Uncles house. After chatting for a bit and a bite to eat (a banana and some graham crackers for me) we returned to the open road. Within minutes the little guy and I were reaching for our first snack.
Then the husband needed a pit stop which led to the vending machine. Little guy and Hubby grabbed something and I stuck with some dry cereal I had in the car.
I know. We’re bad. It was only a 2 hour drive.
Anyway, before too long we were pulling into the resort. Just look at the face!
We are staying at the Port Orleans. This is my first experience at a Disney hotel and so far it’s been pretty cool. I’m a little disappointed in the wired pay per use internet but other then that. No complaints.
We immediately checked in, unpacked, put on the suits and HIT THE POOL! I
Then grabbed lunch at the food court.
I ordered a taco chicken salad light on the cheese and no sour cream. It was tasty! And of course I stole 2-3 of the husbands fries AND had a bite (ok a few bites) of the little guy’s pizza.
Afterwards we hit the pool for a little longer and then showered up for Downtown Disney. We had reservations at the Irish Pub (I’d look it up right now but I don’t have internet!)
Of course when we first get there they put the most amazing bread on the table. WHAT is with these restaurants and their amazing bread?! I mean seriously. It was SO GOOD.
I ordered a salmon dish that came on a pile of mashed potatoes which I didn’t expect. Let me tell you.. it was OUT OF THIS WORLD good. The salmon, the potatoes, even the little cherry tomato they used for garnish blew me away.
So between the slice and a half of bread and the salmon dish I was full. It was more then enough food. However… we have the Disney meal plan and we didn’t realize we would get dessert with every meal! Now I know we don’t HAVE to get it but where’s the fun in that?! So we decided to get the best two sounding desserts on the menu and share.
We got some kind of chocolate craziness…
and an apple berry tart…
I’m happy to say we did NOT clean out plates.
We had a few bites of each and went on out merry way. I was still quite stuffed but smitten with myself for leaving half of my mashed potatoes and two half plates of dessert that normally I would have devoured past the point of comfortable fullness.
That was the last ting I ate today and I’m still quite full. Right now it’s 11:30 and I MUST get some sleep. We have a full day planned at Animal Kingdom. I’ll leave you with some random pics from our adventures in Downtown Disney. Until Tomorrow! :)
