The last day of every Disney vacation is always the hardest. You don’t want to leave, but you are dead tired and are ready for your own bed at home.
We really only had one thing planned for our last day, and that was eating breakfast at the Kona Café. So, we woke up, slowly, and started to get ready while also getting packed up. Upon opening the curtains we noticed it was pouring rain outside. It was as if WDW was sad we were about to leave, and wanted us to stay.
Here is a video of the view from our room and the back side of BLT.
By the time we were dressed and packed up, the rain had cleared.
We walked over to the Contemporary and took the Monorail to the Poly.
Breakfast at Kona Café is something both of us have been wanting to do, so we’re glad we were able to on this vacation.
Abbie had a craving for a Bloody Mary (Roll Tide to that!) and I had to have the house coffee, which is of course Kona Coffee.
The strawberry compote was for breakfast…not the coffee.
You can’t eat breakfast at Kona Café without getting the Tonga Toast. Thank goodness I’m not diabetic either. If you are going to order Tonga Toast, make sure you are starving, because it is gigantic.
Here is what it looks like on the inside.
Abbie was craving pancakes, so she got a giant plate of them, complete with pineapples because we’re at a Hawaiian themed resort.
After cleaning our plates, we went back to our room to check out.
One of my favorite things about the WDW Monorail is the “Please stand clear of the doors.” audio. I even have a shirt that has the Spanish on it.
Reality kicks in when you see the Magical Express bus pull up.
Everyone knows this feeling.
This was an amazing Disney vacation, the best either of us have ever had. Being there for 9 days was great and we’re so glad we were able to do that long of a trip. We knew this would most likely be our last WDW trip prior to having kids, so we really wanted to take advantage of that. We were able to see every Disney resort except for the Caribbean Beach Resort and got a chance to visit each park at least twice. Renting DVC points from a DVC owner allowed us to stay in nicer places without paying the higher prices.
Our dining experiences were all fantastic and it’s a big reason we are hoping to get back down to WDW in the next few years. Maybe next time we can stay closer to Epcot to take advantage of the great dining in WS. Our WDW withdrawals have not gone away, but listening to WDW audio on D-Cot and Subsonic Radio, and watching “Must Do Disney” every now and then helps. In fact, if you are having some withdrawals, just watch this:
Our friends, Jeremy and Jennifer Behling, had their first little boy Jackson this past December. That gives us a good excuse to get down to WDW sooner rather than later to see them and meet Jackson. Maybe we can get down there once our little boy is born and old enough for a long car ride.
People are always asking me for tips and suggestions on their next WDW trip, so here are a few sites I go to for my information.
Hope everyone has enjoyed reading about our last trip. As of right now, we are just past 27 weeks pregnant with our first child. So, we’ll use this to blog about that whole experience and how we are getting ready for him to come into the world. We’ll try to throw some WDW stuff in there every now and then though. God bless!
