If I had to choose a Deluxe Resort to stay at, I would most likely pick the Contemporary. The clean lines and upscale, modern decor speak to me. The Monorail running through the resort? Well, that just adds a whole other layer of awesome on top!

A little background: I put on a brand new pair of Crocs before I got on the plane that morning, and my little toe on one of my feet felt like it was about to fall off. I was mostly quietly limping along, but I was about to die. I also had a really painful blister showing up on the ball of the other foot. Obviously those were NOT the shoes to wear, but what could I do at that point?
Kyle suggested that instead of waiting for the Monorail, we just walk to Magic Kingdom to catch the boat. I hesitantly agreed and off we trudged across the parking lot. About 20 yards out, I wanted to die. Kyle kept having to fall back and wait on me, and I was sure my feet would fall off before I'd make it to the boat. Next time anyone suggests we "just walk over there" instead of take the Monorail, I'm waving goodbye as they walk away!
Fast forward to Fort Wilderness. We got there with plenty of time to spare, checked out yet another gift shop, and sat down to watch some kids play with hoola-hoops and check our 3DS systems. Yes, we had handheld gaming systems in our pockets the whole time which were a blast and a half when we got StreetPass hits on them!
I think the worst part of the trip happened this night (for me at least). You all know that Kyle and I are just travel buddies and besties, right? Well, they make you take a photo before the dinner and show, and some photographers like to assume that any man and woman that are together are a couple. Talk about awkward poses and forced smiles! Needless to say, we did NOT buy those photots!
Awkwardness aside, when we walked into the Hoop Dee Doo Revue, I was blown away by the inside of the hall! It was tastefully decked out for Christmas and enormous! We were seated right next to the pianist and banjo player. We could have seriously had a conversation with them if we wanted to.
|The bison kept staring at me. It was a bit unnerving!|
|Kyle debating playing a pre-dinner tune for us!|
|My phone was ONLY out for pictures, promise!|
|I really wanted to pick up the phone!|
|I want to serve food in these pails at home!|
The performance was wonderful! The actors were hilarious, and the Davy Crockett skit that they performed was by far my favorite. Kyle had talked this up as a ton of fun, and he was spot on. It was a great night both from the food and entertainment! Did I mention that that the Sangria came with the meal and with refills? By the end of the night we were both a bit giggly, but what's more fun that laughing with a good friend?
|I let Kyle play the washboard at the end of the night. :)|
|Didn't he do a good job? We turned it on whenever|
we were in the room. :)
Next post you'll get to join us in Magic Kingdom and then Epcot as we head over to eat at Teppan Edo and to see Neil Patrick Harris at the Candlelight Processional. Lots of surprises happen in Day 2 that make it memorable to say the least!
