Itís Christmas!!!!!! WOOT!!!!!!!! Santa came to Scotland though and not Florida but I had bought a few bits and pieces to put under our room tree.
If you look really closely at this photo you can see the boys lol.
They both got a lanyard with some pins a plushie each, DS1 Goofy and DS2 Donald, some little Starr wars figures and some sweets.
It was now time to head for our ADR at the grand Floridian for Breakfast with Mary Poppins. This was probably our worst meal of the holiday. The staff were unfriendly, our server was quite rude and never about when we needed something. The Characters were good but rushed. Tigger wouldnít bounce for the wee boy at the next table to us. We had finished our breakfast and were waiting to meet the mad hatter before we left but he walked right past our table so we asked our server if she could ask him to come back. She said he was on a break now and would be 5 mins. 20 mins later we were still waiting. He did show up eventually and was quite rude. He said he had come to our table but we had been at the buffet. This wasnít the case as we go to the buffet in twos if you know what I mean.
The food was OK but no where near as nice as the Beach club had been the day before. This may have been a one off though as they were very busy as It was Christmas morning.
We didnít take to this hotel much. Donít get me wrong it looks lovely and if you had little princesses it would be a lovely place to stay. We did however feel it had a pretentious feel to it.
We had a chat with the old man at the front door who was not pretentious and very friendly. He also had some interesting stories about the hotel.
OK our plan today was to go to the magic kingdom then back to our room to change for dinner then back to the Magic Kingdom in the evening. Heeheeheehee!!!!!!!!!
We left the Grand Floridian and seen the massive queue for the Magic Kingdom and thought nooooooooooo! So I said the kids could choose what they fancied. They both asked for the animal Kingdom so off we went. This park was also packed but not on par with the MK. We decided not to do rides as we didnít want to spend Christmas day in queues. First we went to see finding Nemo which was a first for us, we loved it
More to come......
