Nope. 30 minute nap will be it for the day. But, I am getting to old for this. I will sleep well tonight.

Some more pictures from 1900 Park Fare.

The food has declined there over the years, but the girls still love the characters. The croissants were excellent.

Hatter.


Alice.


Winnie the Pooh.

Then, as the room wasn't ready, off to DTD for some shopping. I picked up some pins I had missed over the years and am happy. We shopped some at World of Disney just to kill some time, waiting for our room to be ready. The cell phone battery gave the critical power warning, and my battery was about dead, so I said, let's go back to BLT, find a seat in lobby, and recharge ourselves and phones. Just as the bus pulled into the CR bus stop and I exited the bus, text message that the room was ready at noon.

That extra special Disney magic - yeah that's right- Disneytopia.

We are on the 14th floor on the south side. I'll post more pics later.

Went down to the pool for a few hours. I managed another 15 minute nap in the sun. It felt so good. so did the Yuengling draft beer.

It looks like our studio room from last year. View from our balcony. This is the CR pool.



Way back there in the distance is the Epcot ball. I'm hoping we can see Epcot fireworks and then up to TOTWL to see Wishes. I can also see EE at AK, but my phone doesn't take the best of pictures.



This is the view from the north elevators. Bay Cove pool.



I managed to get the monorail. Great timing.



We are taking our weekly showers (that's what we do in KY), check out the community hall, gift shop, and then onto California Grill. We decided to move Mass until tomorrow morning as we are all to tired to get lost driving thru Orlando today.

Hatter.
I can tell by the pic, this is the Madhatter that can perfectly cross his eyes, my son thinks he's creepy
Did you have any strawberry soup

You got to be one tired pup, after the drive and all day of touring

7:35 Reservation at California Grill = Watch Wishes from your window table for the 9:00 PM show. Then, down to balcony at 10 for Ilkuminations. We have achieved a new level of Disneytopia.

Let's discuss the food. I think Cali Grill has best steak on property, except that I haven't tried V&A or Shulas yet. Here are the pics of tonight's meal. My favorite signatures are Narcoosee's for lobster, Fulton's for King Crab Claws, and Cali Grill and Jiko tie for filet, Jiko has better atmosphere, but Cali Grill has access to Wishes. Even if you eat earlier than 7:35, you may return for a view from the terrace at Cali Grill with your receipt.

Sourdough bread.



Spicey Kazan Roll.



Three cheese flatbread.



Jumbo tiger prawns.



Chocolate cake.



We split a bottle of wine. I got to eat some remaining mussels dd didn't want. A great start to the vacation.

Glad you made it safely! I can't imagine driving straight through. We always had to stop atleast at the 12 hr mark when we drove. We only fly now.

Thanks for updating! Glad I can follow along, so I can get my disney fix. Sounds like a wonderful start so far. Enjoy another Yuengling Draft for me.

Have a wonderful vacation!

DW had th strawberry soup. She said it was almost strawberry ice cream melted. Still worth the trip, just not as good as before.

Thanks. Usually, DW drives a few hours and lets me sleep. A few hour nap will keep me going. For whatever reason, maybe that I made better time by leaving an hour earlier than normal, that didn't happen. I am going to bed now. Good night all.

While we could see Illuminations fireworks (not the globe), it was still far enough away. The Wishes show from Cali Grill or TOTWL is spectacular, especially as y miss main street madness exodus. Still, we were able to see two fireworks shows, and the electric water pageant has started again. It sure is loud over at BLT. If I had a complaint, it would be that.

But, overall, a spectular day to start a Disney week. I'll keep the live report throughout the week. Thanks for playing along.
