Day Four, and "Leaving Day" sad

On my last full day, I set out to see the monorial resorts. However, I am a walker, and was delighted to discover that I could walk to the Poly, and then the GF from the TTC! Loved the Poly - I see why several of you like it so much. I walked by the beach, and saw a wedding! I forgot to mention it yesterday, but I saw a bride and groom at DTD in the early afternoon in their wedding attire, getting free Ghiradelli's chocolate! They had just come from a Poly beach wedding one hour before. Never thought about doing Disney in a wedding dress, carrying a bouquet...

Walked past the new construction of DVC units at GF, then into the magnificent place. Wow is all I can say. I will definitely be back there for Christmas viewing too! I kept expecting some VIP to round the corner at any moment.

Although folks at GF and other resorts have all told me I could not walk from the GF to the MK, I saw a nice brick path connecting them while riding the monorail over! Will walk that next visit. I did walk from the MK to the Contemporary, and wished I had walked back...the monorail was held up for over 20 minutes waiting for track clearance. It was a long stand on a crowded train! (couldn't get off, as they had already closed the doors.)

I bailed on the idea of going to the MK, as throngs were heading in, and it was HOT. After a salad at Earl of Sandwich, DTD, I rested a bit, parked at the Boardwalk, and headed back over to HS to hit a few favorites like Muppets. I got to see the Citizens of Hollywood perform again...I love them, so funny....then took the boat back over to enjoy Epcot for a while before turning in.

"Leaving Day" AM consisted of a final spin through Epcot again and a FABULOUS piece of carrot cake from the Boardwalk Bakery (sorry, my camera was packed). I think that cake might even be better that the cookie I have raved about all week....if you like cream cheese icing, which I do!

So, home tonight in Georgia, and missing the magic - but glad to see my kitties. Coming home is always so hard! But time to get back to school, and to detox from my newly developed carrot cake addiction. mickey

I've enjoyed reading your trip report. Nice to read one from a "walker" and someone who has loose plan who goes with the flow. Glad you had a good time!

thank you Oregonmom! Walking is really part of the fun for me...I take in so much while walking around. I can also pop into any and every store or attraction at will.

Also, I am just do not like to wait for those monorails to get "track clearance" for 20 minutes. waiting

Nice report Doc! Although it looks like you can walk from the GF to MK, this will stop you.

Good catch, MrHub. That's were the Electic Water Pagent enters and exits the Seven Seas Lagoon.

I pretty sure it's not too deep. You could try to ford it.

Watch out for the gators and snakes.

Hey doc, how into baking are you? I've found some good whoopie pie recipes that you could probably use to imitate the special cookie.

I am up for the baking challenge. However, I do not need to eat that cookie too often, or I would need a whole new wardrobe! silly
