March 29, 2008 Disney World Resorts

Today we took a trip to see some of the Disney World Resorts. We first went to the Polynesian Resort and were amazed at beauty of the flora around the place. From the front of the hotel to the lobby to the rear, looking out onto a lake, the colors and greenery were stunning. There were gardens in the lobby with waterfalls and flowers and growths that were simply amazing in their beauty. We lunched at a Polynesian restaurant and, as in other eateries in Disney, we did not leave hungry. From the Polynesian, we took the Monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort. This is reportedly the resort where high profile people, celebrities, etc go. This is luxury that we can only imagine in our wildest dreams. The lobby is gargantuan with large, dome-like skylights and two huge chandeliers. The beach with its stark white beach sand has small tents to shield people from the sun while on the beach. The restaurants and shops (shoppes?) were scaled high above what we are used to seeing, let alone entering. We then took the Monorail to the Contemporary Resort. This resort is in the shape of a large, long triangle with guest rooms overlooking both the shops and restaurants in the center of the lobby and the outside world. This is one of the less expensive resorts that has many shops and restaurants, too. Since there are possibly 16 resorts on the Disney World property, we still have many to go to see them all. Probably won't get that project done this year. Tomorrow we are going to probably go to Epcot and see what it has to offer. If it is anything like the other theme parks we have attended here, we will not be disappointed.
