Welcome to our 'humble' home for the night....
It was hard to get a picture of the foyer. It was very larger. There were two closets and Belle had the best time hiding in them.
Notice the cute 'little girl' towel friend.
To your immediate right was the first bathroom. It was a full bath with a huge shower.
Our living area. The couch made into a full size bed. That was Belle's domain.
We didn't get a great picture of the bedroom. The bedroom was bigger than our whole room at PO Riverside. Haha! We also had our own television, which was nice.
The master bath...
I think I took 3 or 4 baths in that tub.
The balcony off of our bedroom.
This was one of the balconies off of the living area.
(Do you see Belle and Evie? They spent the first hour just like that.)
And the view...
Not too bad, right?!?!?!
Soon after we arrived in our room our stroller (from Orlando Stroller Rental) and a crib were sent up to the room.
I took Belle to the 12th floor to rent a movie. She chose Beauty and the Beast, of course.
Then we got her settled on the pull out couch while we took naps.
When we woke up we headed to the lounge for the evening offerings.
I was a little disappointed in the the selections, though I can't complain because it was beyond what we had asked for. It just seemed like there was a greater selection at Wilderness Lodge.
That night they had crab cakes (so delicious), beef skewers, PB&J sandwiches, veggies with dip and fruit.
We enjoyed every meal on the balcony.
A while later we were still hungry, so we decided to check out Contempo Cafe.
Gregg and I split the Mahi Mahi sandwich. It tasted funny to me (but pregnancy funny, not bad) so I mostly nibbled on fries. Gregg thought it was pretty good.
Belle had cheese pizza. This would become a recurring theme. We actually had to start lying and tell her that they had run out of cheese pizza. It was all she would eat!
While we ate dinner the Magic Kingdom started to light it. So magical.
We really enjoyed the extra space. Belle had fun playing with her baby dolls and Gregg and I were able to hang out on the couch and watch The Office together on Netflix.
Soon enough it was time for Wishes.
Evie was too excited to sleep, so we wheeled her out onto the balcony in her crib.
This was hands down my favorite moment of the trip. The girls LOVED the show. Belle and I had plenty of room the dance to the music.
This set the tone for Belle's 'bravery' in the upcoming days and how she would deal with her SPD.
We had enough space for her to figure things out in her head and I am so thankful for that.
Gregg and I looked at each other and said "this is a once in a lifetime moment."
Before bed we went to the lounge for dessert. Again, the selection was pretty small - chocolate cake, strawberry shortcake in a shot glass(sooooo good) and cookies. I may or may not have eaten four of the shortcakes. (2 for me, 2 for the baby...)
To end the night, our two friends from concierge showed up at our door with a card for Belle from Belle and the Beast and a white chocolate Mickey Mouse for us. They just wanted to make our stay extra special.
It was truly a wonderful day.
