The Polynesian Resort is building small cabins out over the water. I am guessing they will be very exclusive and high priced.
As we were on the Polynesian Resort Village beach - a storm blew up.
You can see Cinderella's Castle in the background. Note the Grand Floridian Hotel and the cabins at the Polynesian Resort.
That's Lulu climbing the volcano. She was raving about the water ride inside the mountain.
Lulu and I like to travel all over the world. But every now and then we return to our roots at Disneyworld. Lulu and I honeymooned in Southern Florida in 1971. In 1972 we returned to the Sunshine State to take summer jobs and visit the Magic Kingdom for the first time.Usually we travel when Lulu has business to address. But this trip is just for us.
Lulu was riding the volcano water slide when the thunder storm arrived.
We left Tallahassee at 10 AM. It took us 4.5 hours to get to our hotel in Lake Buena Vista - Disney Village. We will spend two nights here and come home Friday.
Today - we drove our car to the Polynesian Resort - one of the two original Disney hotels. It still bears a premium price tag - but by today's standards it is a little dated. They are doing a major renovation - but they are still renting out the $300 and $400 a night rooms. The place looks a bit cluttered but will probably look very nice when completed.
We are back in our hotel for the night now at 9 PM. Tomorrow we will spend all day in the Magic Kingdom. The park opens at 9 AM and closes at 1 AM. We plan to spend the whole day there - I hope we can handle it. There are quite a few new adventures we would like to see.
We will buy our tickets at the door - list price - which is just under $100 a person for a day. As a Florida resident - we could have purchased a yearly pass for $238 - but that would have included blackout periods. We seldom pay list price - this time we will.
Today the weather was nice - low 80s - after a summer storm it dropped into the low 70s. Weather report says tomorrow will be 90 here.
We will drive home on Friday.
