lunch at the Polynesian Hotel

We both like the tropical look. And there's nothing better than a little lunch at the Polynesian Hotel!

the blurry water parade

Well, it's not supposed to be blurry, but that was the best we could capture. The other view of the Contemporary from the monorail looks great tho, eh?

more trees!

It must take forever to build these. I guess they work all night.

yet more gingerbread!

Beautifully done, aren't they? They were all over the place in Disneyworld.

on the boat

After visiting the hotels, the best way of getting back to the Magic Kingdom isn't the monorail. It's the boat, of course!

a lot of gingerbread

When we were at Disneyworld for Christmas, there were a lot of gingerbread things around all the hotels. Great stuff. And some of the houses contained hidden Mickeys, which are always fun to pick out.

just walking around DD is nice

It's beautiful to walk around Downtown Disney in FL. It's free - and it's almost like being in the park.

at the Contemporary Hotel

We made a round of the Disneyworld hotels at Christmas, and here's a pleasant surprise we found at the A-shaped Contemporary Hotel - Christmas carolers!

a lovely Pooh fan wife

Here's my lovely wife Mayu in and outside the Pooh store in Downtown Disney, Orlando. Remember, you can walk around this section without needing a ticket to get in the park!

more Christmas in July

I can't remember where this was. Perhaps still in the Animal Kingdom area. They must have tons of Christmas decorations in Disneyworld!

as we leave the Animal Kingdom lodge...

We see the native doors and admire the new age jungle music that invades the lobby...

grandpa sits looking at AK

There I'm is. Looking out at the backyard full of Animal Kingdom animals. Purty, anc'it?

oh, Christmas tree!

Best decked out place in Disneyworld at Christmas - as far as hotels go - had to be the Animal Kingdom Lodge! Wow. More impressive that these little pics. Makes me want to stay there. You can sit on the porch and watch the giraffes and other animals in the backyard too!

a magor character in TDL

At first I thought these were Tokyo Disneyland photos because Stitch is a very minor Disney character in America, but is right up there with Pooh and Mickey in Japan! Mainly because he looks like one of their popular dogs here, I gather. But - nope - this is Animal Kingdom still!
