The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At The Enchanted Rose Lounge

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Our last-minute decision to walk over to the Grand Floridian for dinner at the Enchanted Rose was made casually, but it turned out to be one of my favorite meals of the trip. Brace yourself, because you’re about to be hit in the face with some AMAZING drinks. (Metaphorically. Listen, if I really could, I would.) Drinks at the Enchanted Rose are not cheap. But what they lack in low cost, they make up for in high value. While you...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Afternoon Tea In The Grand Floridian

Mini trip report! Read all the posts in this report here. We finish out my WDW Marathon trip report with a review of afternoon tea in the Garden View Lounge. I have probably had afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian than I have had any other WDW experience. Off the top of my head I’ve done it at least six times, although admittedly not since 2013. Naturally many changes may occur in the space of that many years, but that’s not I made my ADR for one the day before the marathon. No, I made it because a giant pot of tea...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/06

I debated writing this trip report at all. Aside from the marathon itself, I had an incredibly low key trip. No parks or anything. But I decided to do so anyway because a) I have a couple notes that was be interesting to people and b) someday I will reread this report and sigh happily about the good all days. So: off we go! I slept unusually well the night before leaving for this trip, which is to say, I did sleep. It was miraculous! But no one ever enjoys a 4:20am alarm, that much is for sure. The trip...

In Which Jenn Has A Grand Floridian Dream

I had the craziest WDW dream a couple weeks ago! And for once it didn’t involve me missing/almost missing/generally messing up a runDisney race! Okay, so the first thing that’s weird about this dream is that I was staying at the Grand Floridian. This is stange enough, because there’s no way in hell I could afford that, but it gets weirder: I was there with my parents. My parents would NEVER drop that kind of money on a hotel regardless of their financial situation, and also, their interest in WDW is cursory at best (although I’m working on it...

In Which We Talk Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian

MOON: Okay, let’s do tea! JENN: We did the afternoon tea in the Grand Floridian’s Garden View Lounge for the first time in June of 2008. There have been many changes since then, some positive and some negative, but it is the one WDW restaurant I have returned to more than any other. I think my count is up to… I dunno, five times? Six? Anyway, Moon and I went again in February, so we figured we’d talk about it, because it is awesome. MOON: I was just looking at photos of our tea yesterday. Yuuum. 😀 JENN: The...
