A Disney Christmas Date

Monday, December 15, 2014

A while ago Stephen and I decided that during December, we'd go over to Disney World and play putt putt at the Winter Summerland miniature golf course since they have a Christmas themed side. We used to have season passes so normally we'd go see the Osborne Family lights at Hollywood Studios. These Christmas lights are so magical! Since we no longer have passes, we decided to see Disney decorated for Christmas in a modified way. We've been really excited about this date and decided to turn it into a full day event. We started out at the outlet malls which was a nightmare trying to get parking and maneuver about but we found some great deals and last minute Christmas gifts. After the outlet mall, we headed over to the putt putt course, played a great round and took lots of selfies (we were trying to test out Stephen's new phone).

He got the first hole-in-one of the day!

Another hole-in-one...

I finally got a hole-in-one! Only took 13 holes...

At the North "Hole"

Got another one!

Stephen was the winner!!!

After putt putt, we made our way to downtown Disney for dinner and dessert. Even though it was a cold day, we had to get some Ghirardelli's. The brownie sundae was delicious and didn't disappoint.

After dinner we wanted to head over to the nicer Disney resorts over at the Magic Kingdom. Our first stop was the Polynesian. This was a total bust! The entire lobby was under construction so there were no neat Christmas decorations. There was also like a 30 min line to get back on the Monorail so we decided to walk over to the Grand Floridian. On our way over, there was a wedding going on inside the Wedding Pavilion and the Cinderella carriage was waiting outside! We were so excited to see this in real life! It was so magical ;) 

The Grand Floridian was decked out for Christmas! We enjoyed seeing everything then just relaxing while listening to the band play Disney songs or the pianist play Christmas songs. This hotel is amazing at Christmas!

Every year they make a HUGE gingerbread house and serve Christmas goodies out of it

So many details

After spending time at the Grand Floridian, we decided to head over to the Contemporary to see what Christmas decorations they had and watch the fireworks. We weren't impressed... there wasn't much here as well. Just a Frozen themed gingerbread area which was cute. We ended the night by watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the Contemporary. If you can't get into the park, but want to see the fireworks, the Contemporary is the best place to watch them. They even play the music that is inside the park.

It was a super fun Disney Christmas date! Can't believe next weekend is the last weekend before Christmas!
