We had an absolutely outstanding meals at Victoria and Alberts. We were in the Victoria Room, with two other couples, and were presented with the 10 course fixed menu. While Deborah was content to drink just the one glass of champagne, I went with the wine pairing - a glass of wine selected by the chef to specifically match each course
We met Brad, Michelle, Patrick and Caitlin the day after they moved into Port Orleans - Riverside. They had experienced a few delays on their flight over to Orlando, and ended up coming through L.A. rather than direct to Dallas, so they had had a fairly trying (and exhausting) trip.
We moved over to the Wilderness Lodge for the second week - this was as gorgeous as ever. It always looks spectacular for Christmas, with the massive Christmas tree soaring up inside the six story lobby. I just can't imagine how they decorate something like that. We had a most entertaining meal at the Whispering Canyon Cafe - Patrick ordered a coke. It arrived (as they all do at whispering canyon) in a jar. The waitress noticed that Patrick had got through his coke pretty quickly, so when his refill arrived, it was in a huge 48oz. jar. Pat took this as a challenge, and managed to force down the entire contents. The waitress then provided a third refill, in a tiny jar, stating as she put it down that she thought that he might want a little more.
Then we attended Mickey's Magical Christmas Party
It was with heavy heart that we checked out of the Wilderness Lodge on the 15th of December.
