This really won't be much of a trip report but more of a synopsis of our trip. We arrived in Orlando on 8-22 and booked a room for one night thru Priceline and wound up with the Best Western in DTD, nice enough hotel . We spent the night walking around DTD and had dinner at Bongos. The next morning we checked into the Omni hotel in Championsgate for 2 nights . This hotel is one of my faves with its Lazy River pool as my most favorite pool in any hotel. One night we had dinner at Broadway Pizza in Kississimee... by far the best pizza I ever had in Florida.
On 8/25 we checked into Pop Century for 7 nights utilizing the bounceback offer of free dining. We truly had a magical trip with some of the best weather we have had in any August in Florida . New for us were MAGICBANDS,fastpass+ and the Little Mermaid ride. The fact that we had both fastpass and fastpass plus we did every thing we wanted without much of a wait ,in fact we never even stayed for any EMH nights. Little Mermaid was a cute ride.
The wife and I really enjoyed ourselves this trip because our kids are older and run off and do their own thing while we take a nice casual pace through the parks. We were able to walk around Epcot and really enjoy ourselves. We had dinner at Be Our Guest and we all ordered the steak and loved it. We will be returning to this restsurant. the list of restaurants we ate at were
The only meal that I didn't care for was Coral Reef
Before I checked out this morning I booked a bounce back offer for next August for 9 nights of free dining at Pop. We also stayed at Pop and hung out at the pool all day and while there I booked the Buena Vista Palace thru Priceline for tonight. The wife and daughter have some dhopping to do. We begin our drive back to NYC sometime around 3am. Again it was a great and magical trip....
