Disney gives you these cute button pins, if you are celebrating an event, when you check-in to one of their resorts.
We took the Disney bus to Downtown Disney and ate dinner at Earl of Sandwich on the first night. We have eaten here twice now and really enjoy their sandwiches.
Riding bike is something we always enjoy doing at Fort Wilderness. We almost always see deer, but usually just does. This trip was different, however.
Our good friends, Duane and Annette, came over to spend one night and to help us celebrate our anniversary. This is all we saw the first morning on one of our bike rides; just the antlers of a buck lying down in the underbrush. One of the cast members (that is what they call Disney employees) told us that there have been two large bucks hanging around in this area for the last few mornings.
what we saw...what beautiful animals!
They have redone the pools at the campground to include a new slide.
Pool slides are always fun...brings out the kid in ya.
As always, we rode our bikes to the Wilderness Lodge to walk around and stroll thru the gift shop. This is the fireplace in the lobby. It was built to represent the geology of the sedimentary rock layers of the Grand Canyon. If we are camping at Disney during the cooler months, we usually sit and have hot chocolate in front of the fire, but it was too hot on this day.
We ate dinner at Rainforest Cafe on our anniversary with Duane and Annette. We always enjoy eating there. This time we ate at the one at Disney Village, instead of the one at the Animal Kingdom Park.
birds they have surrounding the lodge.
They have a great buffet with some unusual culinary offerings.
(actually, someone else paid for the sky writing,
but the sentiment still applies).
