I left off with my recap of the Expedition Everest Challenge. The next day was Sunday, and we had plans to relax! We slept in and then decided to go to Downtown Disney for lunch at Earl of Sandwich. Jen had a Groupon, so of course we had to go, duh.
After we ate, we hit up Starbucks. (In case you weren’t aware, regular Disney coffee tastes awful, so I’m super happy Starbucks invaded the “world”).
We shopped a little then headed back to the resort to go to the pool. I really like the pool area at Caribbean Beach, and we even scored two chairs under an umbrella mostly in the shade. Hooray for saving our skin!
It was cool enough outside I didn’t even sweat nor did I need to get in the pool to cool off. This worked out because I was way too lazy to get out of my chair.
We sat and chatted a few hours then got ready for dinner at Narcoossees at the Grand Floridian. Jen and I are both big lovers of this resort, and we thought back to a girls trip we took in 2009 when we stayed there. Hopefully one day we will get to stay there again! It’s so beautiful, but also really, really, expensive. If I ever win the lottery, this is where I am going. I guess I need to start buying lottery tickets if I want to win…
We were given a nice table by the window and we had a delicious meal!
I had to get a chocolate martini since that’s what we got when we ate here on our last girls trip. It was very good.
I had steak for my meal, then finished it off with almond crusted cheesecake. I wasn’t even hungry but this dessert is so good, I got it anyway (and proceeded to eat the whole thing). Everything was really good and we had a great time!
We are pretty boring old people so we took a cab back to the resort and went to bed. We had a big day coming up at the Magic Kingdom!
QOTD: What is your favorite dessert?
The pistachio creme brulee at Tony’s Town Square is something that I always look forward to!
Awe your trip looked so perfect! So glad you had an amazing time and a chance to get some serious rest and relaxation in!

How fun! I really want to try the S’mores frappe from Starbucks! And I love that you can get Dole whip at Disney!
I also am glad Starbucks is now at Disney. I don’t drink coffee but I love their teas and I know where I can find a nice refreshing drink now.

My favorite dessert at WDW (and really anymore) is the macaron ice cream sandwich in France. They had one last fall that was amazing-pumpkin spice. It was so good I got right back in line and got another one!

I don’t know which looks better: the chocolate martini or the cheesecake!
