A wonderful first day!

The Haunted Mansion photo is at the start. When you go by the paintings and the ghost host says “and please no flash photography” there’s a crack of lightning and that’s the photo op!

I’m pleased to hear someone else does the exaggerated turn around to see Donald in Philarmagic haha. So many people seem to miss it and Donald’s the best so that can’t happen!

Thank you for the tip about Pinocchio’s. I was going to boycott it next year now they’ve removed my beloved caprese flatbread from the menu but the lure of a quiet seating area may bring it back in favour

Hey - you're sitting on my swing! We love the walk around Crescent Lake when it's so quiet

Yeah they are expensive, but still cheaper than staying at Boardwalk Inn or Yacht and Beach! x

Your first day sounds fun, those pancakes would be my go to order as well. I was so confused that you weren’t in a park when you were doing washing at 8.50 until I realised you were doing breaky 🤣

That doughnut & sandwich looks yum xx
Thank you lovely! It was ace being able to walk so many places!

Hahahaha we took the first morning easy

I remember we had a bus driver like that one evening when we stayed at port Orleans riverside, really terrible Xmas cracker jokes! He told these jokes the whole way back to the resort oblivious to whether or not people laughed. Good luck to him, clearly just loving his job!

Great start to your holiday ❤️
