Star Wars..

I certainly enjoyed my recent trip to Disney World, especially the Star Wars elements. Today May 4 being Star Wars day I thought it appropriate to give you a picture of a major exhibit there.

May the fourth be with you….   🙂  🙂

Disney World — Flowers

One of the things that impressed me the most about my recent trip to Disney World were the flower beds. They were huge and beautiful. These were found below the Monorail system in Epcot.

Fireworks…

DW Banner  The nightly fireworks on the lake in Epcot at Disney World  are the best I have ever seen. As usual when they do something they do it right. It is hard to capture it all in pictures but you kind of get the idea from this one.

Blue McCaws

DW BannerI have to say that Disney World does it right. They go out of their way to insure that everyone has a good time. One of those unique experiences was the McCaws at Animal Kingdom. A dozen birds seem to land on command so these smiling young ladies can tell us about them and of course so we can take pictures. Then a few minutes later they all take flight only to return a few hours later for more guests.

Back To The Daily Routines..

Disney Fireworks-3We returned from our Disney World adventure yesterday so it is back the the daily routine. I didn’t keep my promise to post here during the vacation mainly because I had better things to do.  The readership of this blog is still dreadfully low so I just didn’t have the drive to spend the time.  It’s hard getting readership for a blog that focuses on positive thoughts I guess…. 🙂

My time at Disney World was great.  There was a good, a bad, and a ugly side of which I will report there in the coming week or so along with pics. Gotta unpack and such so I will just leave you with one picture of me and my buddy Donald… more later….

As planned we got to DW about noon and visited the Boardwalk Inn. It would be a couple of hours before we could check in so we strolled the boardwalk. But first we picked up my wife’s scooter. Everything went pretty much as expected.  One thing that immediately struck me was just how clean everything is. There was not a single speck of paper to be found anywhere. It was supposed to be a light day but still I ended up walking almost 6 miles!

We went to DW Springs in the early evening and found massive crowds there. It was kind of like a BIG shopping mall. We intended to eat dinner there but found that the wait times were in the order of 2 hours so skipped than and after about a half hour decided we had enough. We ended up eating at the Bakery. The sandwiches were very tasty.  After more browsing we headed back to our room to watch an episode of Doc Martin via streaming video from my Amazon account.

Let me close this post with some pictures.

 

 

DW BannerHere I am in a hotel room in Ocala Florida, which is about an hour and a half from Disney World. Or at least if traffic allows this Sunday morning. I got my MagicBand out of the luggage and am now waiting for my wife to wake us. She is not nearly excited about this trip as I am.  🙂

2016-03-18_16-35-23I have already electronically checked into the resort so they will send me a text message with the room number when it’s available. No waiting in line at the reception desk is necessary. Today will be spent just browsing around the Boardwalk and maybe visiting the Village where all the shops are.  Tomorrow will be a day at Epcot.  I can hardly wait to get this time started!!

If time allows I will be posting daily snippets here to tell you the highlights. Further reflection will be made after our return home….
