Back From Disney

My family and I had a (mostly) fun time at Walt Disney World this past week.  This was B's first trip to Disney and she did pretty well.  By the 6th day though, she was done with the parks and just wanted to hang at the pool.  B's favorite ride was Finding Nemo at Epcot.  We road Nemo every night.  I should say, we stayed at the Beach Club, so Epcot was just a short walk away.  We ate dinner, then went over to Nemo where there wasn't a line.  The Seas pavilion was wonderful.  There were all kinds of fish, different tanks, manatees, dolphins, Turtle Talk with Crush, a really cool place.  We also had dinner at the Seas (yes, we spent lots of time there) at The Coral Reef.  This restaurant has a huge aquarium as it's focal point.  Tables are in tiered rows, like a Vegas nightclub.  We lucked out big and were seated right up against the glass.  There was a giant sting ray that sat right next to us the whole time.  There were 3 sharks, a sea turtle, these giant, prehistoric looking groupers, lots of other fish  AND the meal was the best we had while at Disney.  B loves fish, so spending time at The Seas made her happy.  

Other Things B liked:

Character Meals: Tusker House Breakfast (Animal Kingdom).  This was the best character meal we had.  Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Mickey.  The food was good, coffee was OK and they had this great juice (I think it was Guava, passion fruit and OJ).

Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom).  Pooh and friends.  Wasn't as organized as the other meals.  But, there was this FAB french toast.  Can't describe it, kind of like donut french toast.  So good.

Chef Mickey's (Contemporary).  We took the monorail to this hotel.  It is cool because the monorail runs right through the middle of the Contemporary.   Food was OK, but the characters were good.  Mickey, Donald, Minnie and Goofy (Pluto was there, but we missed him.) 

We were supposed to have breakfast at the The Cape May at our hotel, but I made the ADR (advanced reservations) for 7:30.  A bit too early, besides, Mike was sick if characters and buffets.  

I will post other things B liked, plus photos in the next post.  I have more restaurant comments too.  Food is important to me and it was the thing we liked least on our trip.
