Disney Vacation

This past week, Mike and I went to Disney World for his brothers wedding, he got married on Tuesday at the Grand Floridian. Since Mike has never been to Disney World and the last time I went was about 16 years ago, we decided to make a vacation out of it. We arrived on Friday and did not stop moving until we came home on Thursday. For the most part a lot has stayed the same, but there as been some additions and improvements.

We stayed at one of the Disney Resorts, Port Orleans Riverside. It was a really nice place to stay and Disney makes it very painless to get around if you don't have a car. We took advantage of their Disney Express package, which is that they pick you and your bags up from the airport and bring you to your resort. Your bags arrive about 3-4 hours after you do, but that wasn't a big deal for us since we arrived at the hotel around 11:00am. Our room wasn't ready since check-in isn't until 3pm. So we walked around the resort a little and had lunch. They had given us a number to call to check to see when our room became available. The guy that helped us said to check after an hour or so, because a lot of the time they are ready earlier. So we called around 12:00pm and it was actually ready. We then dropped off our jackets and carry on bags and was off to the Magic Kingdom. The nice thing was when we got back to our room later that night our bags were in there waiting for us.

While at Disney I saw some thing that I knew I had to post about. The first thing I saw rice krispy treats in the shape of Mickey heads. I was like I so can make those. They had two kinds. Huge and normal size. The normal size ones had sticks in them to make them rice krispy pops...or should I say Mickey Pops! I bought a Mickey Head cookie cutter so I can try to make them.

Another thing I had to show you is the breakfast Mike had the next morning at our resort . He had Banana Stuffed French Toast....oh my...they were soooooo good. Need I say any more.

Now two things I had to show you from the wedding...the cake and the dessert. Both were really tasty.

Wedding Cake was white cake with chocolate filling and the dessert was white chocolate mousse in a white chocolate slipper and chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup. The red sauce was raspberry. Yum!!

Another cool thing about the wedding was that they had Mickey and Minnie there. Of course we had to get our picture with them.

Mike and I both had a great time, and was bummed when we had to go from 75 degree weather to 20 degree weather and snow. Oh well that's life I guess! Till next time!

Wow that is amazing!!! Simply beautiful. We just had some friends go to Disney World and the guy proposed to the girl with the "proposal package" where they sat in the castle and had dinner.
It was amazing!

OMG...I don't believe you bought a mickey mouse cookie cutter...I'm gonna have to borrow that from you one of these days. My friend LOVES those Mickey Rice Krispy treats...I actually had another friend bring me back some from his trip last month to give away as a late Christmas gift. Ed (my friend) is going March 8 and he's bringing back a HUGE mickey rice krispy treat for me! I can't wait.
