Even with the fact that The Grand Floridian is one of my least favorite resorts it still has some cool things to see and do. This includes sailing like in the picture above, relaxing to the swinging sounds of the band in the lobby, or purchasing a gingerbread cookie from inside a real life size gingerbread house during the holiday season. the point is ( to quote the Enchanted Tiki Room) that every cloud has a silver lining.
note: last two pics of hub with trees borrowed from the interweb. If they are yours thanks.

The Polynesian Resort in the early evening. Dusk is when the resorts exotic beauty comes out with tiki torches, luaus, and fireworks reflecting on the water from the Magic Kingdom.
This is the first in a series that will dive into the depths of the world showcase pavilions at Epcot. Today we look at the exterior of the Japan pavilion. upon entering the pavilion we see a traditional torii gate along the waters edge, A Japanese Pagoda, and several authentic buildings surrounding a courtyard. At the rear of the courtyard are large gates and a moat that lead to a Japanese castle. The pavilion is home to several dinning and entertainment options which we well look at in future posts. Including the Mitsukoshi department store, A chain of stores founded in 1673 in Japan.

Animal Kingdom at night a rare site. Best time to get shots like this is to visit around Christmas when the hours are extended and the sun goes down early. Oh and don't forget the tripod.

I was talking to my amazing and beautiful girlfriend today about my once in a lifetime experience of enjoying a meal at club 33, Walt Disney's private dinning room. So i decided to do a few posts on the club. Today's post is a few pics of the outside of the club. Its entrance is tucked away on the back streets of New Orleans Square. So tucked away that most people walk right past it. It's only identified buy a small plaque with the club's insignia on it. In fact to enter you have to access a hidden intercom to confirm your reservation, which can only be made by a club member.
