Well hello there! Feels like I have been gone forever – but I am back in the saddle today and ready to do a fun Disney recap. Before I get started though I just want to say that DISNEY was a blast! We had a super time and would definitely do it again. The place is huge and very overwhelming but nothing but great memories.
Star Island Resort
WOW – I cannot say enough thank you’s to Danica and Jay from Danicasdaily.com for hooking us up with the timeshare at Star Island. From the hospitality, to the cleanliness, the amazing room and the pools – this place was truly a 5 Star resort. Lots of activities to do, amazing location and did I mention we had 2 kitchens!!!
Below are some shots I snapped of the resort throughout the week.
Out and About Day 1
We made tracks early Sunday morning to tour around the pathways and see what we could find. Playgrounds, random wildlife and gorgeous views were just a few worthy of a point and shoot.
Well when I mentioned to Zesty Junior that there was a huge LEGO store at Downtown Disney – we had to go there on the very first day! It was super hot, and super fun. We cruised around with stroller rentals for 3-4 hours and everyone loved it.
Holy S&%t – this place is insane! So much to do, slightly overwhelming, super crowded but a tonne of fun! We walked around for 9 hours ( thank god for cart rentals ) and we did not even feel we put a dent in this place. We went on the rides, took in a parade, did the train tour and had an absolute blast. I felt like a kid with hair again.
Dinner with Goofy and Pluto
We heard lots of good things about character breakfasts before we took off so I had to try and hook us up. However, I left it to the last minute and everything was booked. Uh oh, but don’t panic…. I called up Disney and scored a character dinner for Tuesday night with none other than Goofy and Pluto. Pretty funny because the kids’ two favorite characters are goofy and Pluto – so it worked out well.
I was somewhat mesmerized at all the things going on that I forgot to take pics of the buffet… except for the desserts. Look at the desserts!! I tried a few of them… ok ok 5 of them.
On the last day before we departed the kids wanted to hit the sandy beach FLO-RIDA style. So we decided to take a drive out to Clearwater beach. An excellent decision. This place was so nice! We hung out on the beach all day and played in the water and sand.
The weather was gorgeous all week – I hated to go home!
I hope you enjoyed the recap. I will be back Wednesday with a fun Dempsters giveaway. Stay tuned.
