Yet again, Disney did not disappoint! Always an amazing vacation! Ok, in all honesty, maybe the weather was questionable, but seriously, what can you do about Mother Nature? There were some days we needed jackets and some layers, but we made the best of it. We stayed in the 400 loop at Fort Wilderness (a first in this loop) in our RV and thoroughly enjoyed it! Typically, we stay closer to the Meadow Trading Post (midway through campground), but this time we really loved staying next to the Settlement. We enjoyed easy strolls to the Trading Post, the beach, and the Tri-Circle D Ranch. As we have a Class A motorhome, we always reserve a Premium spot in the campground as it provides ample room to park and open up the RV in addition to setting up a tent, table and several chairs. Of course we “glamped” up the site with lots of Easter and Disney decorations (including trimming up our golf cart for the holiday) and added strings of lights throughout the site to make it festive. We stayed at the resort for nine days and purchased five day park passes along with the Water Parks and more option. We have been to Disney numerous times and we choose not to purchase the park hopper option as it can be a little costly to do this add on. In addition, our family seems to prefer to just do one park per day. As it was Easter, we were prepared for the full crowds at the parks, particularly at the Magic Kingdom. Our family takes the park days in a slow and relaxed manner. Yes, this truly is possible. We basically plan our fast passes for earlier in the day and then go back to the RV for some time in the afternoon to have lunch or spend time at the pool. We bring our dog on our vacations so it’s important that we spend some time with her as well. Billie loves to go for golf cart rides at Fort Wilderness! She deserves it, after all, it’s her vacation too!
Food, food and more good food! A relaxed afternoon is followed by dinner at one of the terrific restaurants at Disney. On this trip we had dinner at Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Kona at The Polynesian Resort, California Grill at The Contemporary, Olivia’s Café at Key West Resort, Prime Time Café at Hollywood Studios, Tokyo Dining and San Angel Inn at Epcot and finally, Ragland Road in Disney Springs. Each meal was terrific, but we all agreed the best was Olivia’s Café! This was our first time at this restaurant and it won’t be our last! Our server Ken made the meal so much fun and the food was really yummy! One of us is gluten free and I must mention Disney goes above and beyond to make sure a great meal is had by all!
So, alas, this trip is now one for the books. It was a good one- two thumbs up even! We will be back…in fact, twelve weeks and counting! Like I said, there is nothing better than getting back from one trip and starting to plan for another!! Let the anticipation begin!
Glamp on Friends!!!
