Disney 2019 Vacation Recap: Part 3

If you missed part one and part two be sure to check them out then come back to this one!

We left off part two at the end of our fun day at the pool. We woke up the third day ready to go to our first park, Magic Kingdom! I knew this would be my favorite day so I was super excited. We would be checking out of our villa that day and heading over to Wilderness Lodge/Copper Creek villas that afternoon, so we went ahead and packed up our cars that morning and left them in the Grand Floridian parking lot and then hopped on the monorail to Magic Kingdom.

The weather was beautiful again, and we were able to get there for rope drop despite some monorail issues.

I hit up Starbucks with my mom while Ek, Bobby and my dad went to the rope drop and Carousel.

We were then able to knock out some rides like Dumbo, and then we saw Daisy and Pluto!

Emma Kate has been asking about cotton candy for WEEKS for some reason, so we told her she could get some at Disney World, so of course she immediately spotted it at the park so we let her get some at 9:00 in the morning.

We then had a fastpass for Enchanted Tales with Belle, and Emma kate got to be Mrs. Potts. She is such a ham. I can’t remember exactly what was next, but I know we rode, Peter Pan, The PeopleMover, Buzz lightyear, Ariel, and then we saw Princesses while Bobby and my dad rode Splash Mountain.

Oh and we also rode Winnie the Pooh.

After a quick service lunch of Mexican food, we headed to Tomorrowland for delicious chocolate milkshake desserts. Emma Kate waited so patiently at the counter for hers.

Mom and dad were worn out after that, so they took off to go back to the Grand and pick up their car then check in at the next hotel while me, Ek and Bobby rode Pirates of the Caribbean. I can’t remember what else we did, but it was getting really people-y in the park so we decided to head out as well. We ended up taking a boat (apparently the monorail was taking forever per mom and dad) and we ended up only being a few minutes behind them.

Our two bedroom villa was on the 6th floor with a pool and water view. We got all the luggage up there and took a little rest before dinner. I will do a full review of this resort in another post!

We had dinner at Trail’s End buffet to celebrate my dad’s birthday, so we took the boat over.

We had a great dinner and dad was thoroughly embarrassed for his birthday, and we got back on the boat with full bellies. Unfortunately a huge storm came up while on the boat, and we were all dumped off at the Contemporary because they closed the boats down. We ended up just taking a cab to Wilderness Lodge since it was so close and much more convenient then trying to take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom then a bus. Emma Kate was dying to go swimming, but with lightning in the area the pools were closed.

We were finally given the all clear, and Emma Kate had a late night swim/play time in the splash pad.

We had an awesome day and were worn out by the end of it. Up next we have Hollywood Studios!

Disney 2019 Vacation Recap: Part 2

In case you missed part 1, you can go back and read it here.

We left off at the end of our arrival day. When we planned this trip, we decided to do 3 days of parks. Since we had 4 full days, that meant one day would be a day at the resort. Since the parks are typically less crowded during the week (and it was a runDisney weekend to boot), we decided Sunday would be our “chill day.”

We got up and the family ate pancakes (I was fasting still!) And Bobby went to get us chairs at the pool. Mom cleaned up and Dad, Emma Kate and I ran over to Sugar Loaf to say hello to a cast member friend of mine. We had a nice chat and headed back to the pool with mimosas.

We had front row chairs, which was great for taking turns in the pool with Emma Kate and keeping an eye on her when she went down the slide. She was having a blast.

Let me tell you, this girl can play HARD.

We got to the pool a little after 9:00, and girlfriend didn’t stop until we MADE her get out at 1:30. When it was lunch time, my mom and I walked to the Polynesian (the weather was amazing yall) and we picked up lunch and brought it back and ate at our chairs.

The walk was really nice and the food was delicious as always.

My mom and dad took Emma Kate up to the room and Bobby and I stayed about 30 minutes longer until I had had enough (it was warming up and my spot wasn’t covered by the umbrella anymore and I could feel myself frying.) So everyone took naps (the only time the whole trip EK napped, unfortunately.)

After nap, we hung out on the balcony enjoying the weather and some snacks.

Bobby and I had reservations for Narcoossess that evening, so Emma Kate and I put on some mommy and me dresses for a little photo shoot before dinner.

It was really nice having dinner at our resort and just walking over! As we walked a cast member saw us and gave us a ride on his golf cart.

I always try to be honest with yall, and I must admit we were super disappointed with our dinner. We used to LOVE Narcoossess, but prices have gone way up, and they must have gotten a new chef because the fillet I know and love tasted WAY different and had different sauces etc. It was COVERED in pepper and it was overpowering and just tasted like I was eating forkfuls of it. It was also overcooked which was a bummer. Normally they butterfly it for me and didn’t this time, maybe that’s why it was overcooked?

My drink was delicious (chocolate martini), and dessert was good. But for the price, the portions are small (Bobby was hungry after) and we won’t be back for a while. We love Citrico’s too, so we will probbaly go there next time or California Grill.

After dinner we walked around a bit and went and sat by the marina.

We went back to the room and changed, and all headed downstairs for the movie under the stars. This was our first time participating, and thought it was a nice touch that they gave out popcorn.

We left halfway through the movie (we have Monsters Inc. and Emma Kate was getting bored) to go watch the fireworks from the marina. It was pretty crowded and we didn’t stay the whole time (my child has the attention span of a flea.)

As we walked back to the villas, we realized the place where you roast marshmallows had an amazing view of the fireworks! This is our plan next time!

It was a great day just relaxing and not having to rush off to a park. I highly recommend doing a day like this if you can!

However the crazy was just about to start for us, as the next day we were headed to Magic Kingdom! Stay tuned for more.

Disney 2019 Vacation Recap: Part 1

We are back from a wonderful Disney vacation, and I can’t wait to share all the fun we had in Florida. I’m going to break this up into parts, but try and get them all up quickly before I forget what all we did! I will link all the parts here once I am done.

Friday April 5th we left after lunch to drive halfway to Disney. We stopped north of Destin just off the interstate and were all too excited to sleep!

We got on the road the next morning for the 6 hour drive to Orlando. We arrived right at 4:00 at the Grand Floridian villas, and my parents were already there and had checked into the room. We were on the top floor and had an amazing view of Bay Lake! I will post a few photos here but plan to do a whole other post just about the villas.

The two bedroom villas are gorgeous, and I loved how light and airy they were. We spent a good amount of time on the balcony just enjoying the view. I posted room tours on my IGTV channel (@HeathersLG) if you want to check them out!

As soon as we got unloaded into the villa, we changed and headed to the pool. Emma Kate was so excited, so we went straight to the splash pad.

She loved the giant bucket of water that dumped out every couple of minutes and would just sit in the water waiting for it.

After a couple hours, we went to leave and saw they were roasting marshmallows, so obviously we had to do that!

My mom had made jambalaya at home the night before so we had that up in the villa. It was nice to not have to go anywhere or get dressed for a restaurant on arrival day. It allowed for more pool time and just relaxing and hanging out.

After we ate, we went for a walk around the hotel grounds, and into the lobby to see the beautiful Easter egg display they do every year. I can’t believe these are chocolate, they are so intricate it’s amazing.

We were all pretty wiped out after that, and decided to go to bed. We had a fun day of relaxing at the pool planned for the next day!

I would love to help you plan your next Disney vacation! It’s free for me to help you! Email heather@travelwiththemagic.com for details.

Disney Girls Trip Part 3: After the Race

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”).

unnamed (23)

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!

unnamed (24)

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.

unnamed (25)

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…

unnamed (26)

We were given a nice table by the window and we had a delicious meal!

unnamed (28)

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.

unnamed (29)

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!

unnamed (30)

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?

I’m Back! (Sort of)

Good morning everyone! I am BACK (sort of). I got off the cruise ship Saturday then headed to Disney to meet up with my parents. I will be here until Wednesday, but I am “back” as far as blogging goes. I hope you all enjoyed my guest posts, a huge thank you to them for offering to hang out on my blog while I was away, they are all awesome! I have so much more to tell you about the press event.

I have more great things to share when I get home so stay tuned. For now, I just wanted to share a few pictures from our two night stay at the Grand Floridian during the press event. The resort looked beautiful as usual and the courtyard pool has finished it’s renovations. We were on the 4th floor of Sago Cay.

Disney Cruise and Vacation wrap up

A huge thank you for all the congrats I got on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and on the blog about my race. I can’t wait to share my recap with you in a few days!

This will be my final post on my Disney vacation from May, then I can start recapping my Disneyland trip! We left off last time after checking into our hotel, the Grand Floridian and going to Animal Kingdom. The next day, my parents arrived and we went to Hollywood Studios.

And we celebrated my parents anniversary.

DSC_1010

DSC_1002

My stomach felt really full and I had a sick feeling on the boat on the way back and thought I had just eaten too much. However, the feeling got worse and worse, and after a couple hours, I threw up for the first time. It was not pleasant. You can see my food poisoning post here.

I have never been so sick in all my life and wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. I threw up twice and was nauseated so so badly for DAYS. I also had…other problems for over a week with keeping food in me. That was the worst part. The whole last day I stayed in bed then we went home the next day. I didn’t eat hardly anything for over a week, just gatorade and crackers and I lost about 7 pounds. It. was. awful. Not exactly a good way to end our trip that’s for sure. Anyone who has ever had a bad case of food poisoning will understand, and I hope I never get it again! I literally thought I was dying, and even told Bobby I was sorry I was dying and leaving him. I felt that bad! We ALMOST went to the ER but I stuck it out.

Aside from the illness we had an amazing trip up to that point and it was a great way to kick off the summer!

QOTD: Have you ever had food poisoning? What did you do?

Disney Cruise and Vacation: Part 6

 

Hi guys! Well, we are still here! It’s still raining here, still very windy. I posted several videos of the storm on my You Tube channel if you want to check them out.  It’s been a tedious few days, and the big news from yesterday is my flight got cancelled for tomorrow, so we are now having to fly out of Pensacola with a  stop in Atlanta. I know this is nothing compared to what other people are facing today with flooded homes, but not going to lie it frustrated me yesterday. In case you have no idea what’s going on down here I suggest you check out weather.com….lots of people have flooded or washed away homes, it’s bad down here. Again. 7 years to the day after Katrina. My family has been very lucky, and we are blessed to have a home with no water in it, and no major wind damage.

I remembered I still haven’t finished recapping my May cruise/trip to Disney, so I thought it would help me pass the time by remembering and posting about the fun time we had this spring! Well, until I got sick, but more on that later.

Where I left off, we were getting off the Disney Magic to start the “land” part of our vacation.

When we got off the boat, we got in our car and didn’t have to be sad, we were heading to WDW, and my parents were joining us there the next day. We drove straight to our resort, the Grand Floridian, to check in. It was early in the morning, and our room wasn’t ready yet. We grabbed some snacks from the lounge and headed back out to Animal Kingdom.

DSC_0812

We headed straight for Expedition Everest so Bobby could jump in the single rider line. He rode it twice very quickly….and then it started to rain, I mean POUR! We ran into the shop, and huddled in with hundreds of others for a good 20-30 minutes until it passed. I had not even thought to bring our ponchos. Whoops. Pretty sure we did the safari ride, walked through and saw some animals on the jungle trek, and did It’s Tough to Be a Bug. Even after eating non stop for 5 days on a cruise, my stomach had the nerve to growl and so we headed to lunch at Flame Tree BBQ. We ate down at a kind of “hidden” deck over the water that has a great view of Expedition Everest.

DSC_0813

DSC_0814

While we were at lunch, we got the text message with our room number in it. I was itching to get back because I KNOW that room number and knew what room we were in, but Bobby wanted to stay longer at Animal Kingdom, so we wandered around a bit more, saw Festival of the Lion King, and then finally decided to head out.

DSC_0815

DSC_0818

Bobby felt bad using a one day ticket for just a few hours (I have an annual pass) but I assured him it was ok. We had several one day base tickets leftover from packages years ago we needed to use anyway. We excitedly went straight to our room and called for our luggage. Just as I suspected, the wonderful staff at the Grand was able to get us the room we honeymooned in five years earlier.

The best part of course, is the view. Can you see the castle to the left in the distance below?

DSC_0830

DSC_0835

DSC_0837

We had panoramic views from the monorail to the castle (including the DVC construction)

DSC_0840

We headed to the lounge for tea and scones, and the best banana bread ever. It’s one of my favorite things they serve in the concierge lounge!

DSC_0845

DSC_0848

We relaxed and ate, my favorite thing to do at the Grand, and then went back to our room and had a surprise from the hotel.

DSC_0850

It was so pretty I almost didn’t want to eat it….but I did anyway, of course. We got cleaned up and dressed for dinner, then went to the lounge to enjoy some appetizers before driving to the Yacht Club for dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse.

DSC_0852

By this point we WERE full, so we decided to split a meal.

DSC_0853

Of course, we had to have a little birthday fun. Bobby was not amused.

DSC_0854

DSC_0856

DSC_0857

We headed back to the hotel to get some sleep before my parents arrived in the morning!

QOTD: Do you like having your birthday celebrated at restaurants, etc. or do you not like the fuss?

Disney April Trip in Pictures

 

So I am still recovering from my food poisoning and also trying to catch up on work at the same time, and it is quite frustrating. After not eating solid food since Friday except a bit of soup and rice, I am finding it hard to wrap my brain around anything I need to do for work and just get overwhelmed, so after a couple of hours of trying yesterday I threw my hands up and just called it quits.

Since I really didn’t need a ton more to to think about today, like blogging, I thought I would share some photos from my Aprils trip to Disney with my aunts and mom. I apologize for the delay in my regular blogging, and hope you will stick with me and come back and read Running With Sass when things are back to normal, but I just don’t have the energy today. I know you understand!

After quite the eventful Sunday, we were excited to hit the parks at a nice relaxing pace on Monday. We went to Hollywood Studios, and wore our I did it shirts.

We headed straight for Toy Story Mania. The fastpass return time was already really late, so we stood in the standby line, which went by really fast.

We saw this hilarious guy on the street telling people to stop and go.

DSC_0407

We made sad faces in our picture then he changed his at the last minute.

DSC_0410

my mom wanted a picture with this funny pair. I could watch the street performers all day! Be sure to watch them if they are out when you are there!

561356_645744945471_68000952_32373232_12550074_n

Karen and I wanted to ride Star Tours, so our moms waited for us to be down with it. There was hardly a line for it, either! We also saw Beauty and the Beast.

DSC_0420

DSC_0424

DSC_0431

I really can’t remember what else we did besides lunch! We ate at Backlot Express, and it took forever to get my sandwich because I special ordered it. I won’t make that mistake again, I will just pick off the stuff I don’t like.

DSC_0432

We decided to head back to the hotel and then go to the Magic Kingdom (I love being on the monorail!) To do some shopping and I really wanted a dole whip! First, we got a picture with Richard. I love this guy, he has been at the Grand for 20 years. Whenever a bride is getting her photos taken at the resort, he goes around with her holding the train of her dress up. it is so. cute.

DSC_0435

We hopped on the monorail and were quickly at the gates of the magic Kingdom.

DSC_0440

DSC_0444

I snagged a couple pics of the Main Strees Barber shop

My mom and I headed for adventureland and Dole Whips while Karen and her mom were in search of some regular ice cream.

DSC_0448

aaahhh my trip is now complete. We seriously considered each getting another one they were so good.

We waited for the other outside the Plaza, and what do you know, the parade was about to start and we had perfect seats!

I honestly don’t remember what I did before it was time for appetizers! But, soon enough it was time for our last night in the lounge. It started raining, but we crossed our fingers it would finish before time to walk to Ohana. We were able to walk over there and enjoy our last dinner. Look who else we found, Megan!

DSC_0491

The food was good as usual, I was stuffed!

DSC_0492

We were able to watch Wishes from our seats, and then we headed out and took the monorail back to the Grand. Tuesday morning, we packed up the car and I somehow managed to drive the whole 9 hours home, with a car that looked like this.

526132_645747195961_68000952_32373269_2037756932_n

Disney Princess Weekend: Sunday

 

If you missed my first two non-race recaps, you can check them out below:

Disney Princess Weekend: Thursday and Friday

Disney Princess Weekend: Saturday

Sunday morning we got up and ran the Disney Princess half marathon, but were back at the hotel by mid morning. Unfortunately, We missed breakfast in the lounge by just a couple of minutes, but were able to get some coffee from the wonderful ladies who work in the lounge to warm our freezing selves up! We showered and changed, and decided to go to the Magic Kingdom. We were starving, and I knew I wanted something yummy and greasy as a recovery food!

DSC_0350

Why yes I did wear my tiara to the park, along with my medal.

We took the monorail over to the park, and the crowds were really not that bad.

DSC_0353

We ended up in Fantasyland at Pinocchio’s and I ordered a fabulously greasy pizza with fries and a coke. I didn’t really care that it wasn’t healthy, my body was craving calories and carbs!

DSC_0356

We used my magical fastpass to ride Peter Pan, then we did Mickey’s Philharmagic,

422767_640903517731_68000952_32356008_2056931291_n

Haunted Mansion, and Pirates. About this time, I was getting really sleepy. My mom and I decided to go back to the hotel for a nap while Karen and her mom finished up in the Magic Kingdom. I know my limits, and if I wanted to be ANY fun at dinner, I needed a nap!

I slept about an hour, and it was glorious! I decided to run down to the shops at the hotel for a few minutes before getting ready for dinner. When I got back in the elevator, it was me, and another couple. I thought the man looked very familiar, but I was still half asleep. It hit me when I saw they had runDisney shirts on…It was Jeff Galloway and his wife!!! (he wasn’t wearing his Disney hat which is why it took me a minute!) He saw my medal and asked me if I had a fun race. I said I did, and I told him I had talked to him Friday at his meet up, and thanked him again for spending so much individual time with everyone. His wife laughed and said Jeff loved talking to people so it was no problem for him! Then Jeff told me the meet ups really had been taking off and taking on a life of their own and how he loved it! By then we were at my floor and I said goodbye. I of course immediately tweeted about it!

jefftweet1

I had such a great time racing in my tutu, I wanted to be able to wear it again. I somehow convinced everyone that we NEEDED to wear our tutu’s to dinner that night at 1900 Park Fare.

DSC_0357

We went to the lounge for appetizers and were having WAY too much fun. Let’s just say I get really silly when I have a glass of champagne! As we were sitting there, Jeff Galloway and his wife were walking by with their appetizers and went and sat at a table. my mom wanted to meet him, so she kept trying to “get his attention” with her medal.

431006_640903832101_68000952_32356014_708930919_n

They left and didn’t see us, but then he ended up coming back and walked right up to our table and started talking to us about the race! Of course we had to get a picture, too. he was so sweet and let us take about ten photos.

DSC_0360

I of course had to tweet…again.

jefftweet2

It was finally time for dinner, so we headed down to 1900 Park Fare we were ended up having to wait FOREVER to eat. We someone managed to entertain ourselves though.

64784_640904116531_68000952_32356019_633307181_n

Karen’s mom wasn’t feeling good so she went back to the room, and it was time for us to be seated. The food was excellent of course, and I had to keep apologizing to the table next to me because every time I would try to squeeze by to my table, my tutu would hit them in the face.

DSC_0364

Have I ever mentioned I love Disney mac n cheese?

431485_640904291181_68000952_32356022_1214905645_n

I think they thought we were crazy. But then the characters started to come by…and they thought we had lost our minds.

When the first stepsister came up, we were already standing and she came up behind me and scared the crap out of me so I made a kind of “ah!” scared noise (not loud) and she looked at me then walked off! Luckily she did come back…but when I tried to tell her about the race she told me she didn’t need some medal to feel secure and confident in herself.

422768_640904480801_68000952_32356027_2014320215_n

Then when we tried to take a picture, she did this.

DSC_0375

We finally got her to take a normal one

DSC_0377

and as soon as we did, she turned and screamed right in my ear and said “not so funny when someone does it to you, huh?” We were absolutely dying laughing, it. was. hysterical.

424271_640904430901_68000952_32356026_2073895996_n

Soon enough the other step sister came by, and she wasn’t very nice either. I told her that her sister was mean to us and she said we probably deserved it.
