Is it necessary to have 56 photos of nothing but a breakfast buffet? Yes. Yes it is. I am not exaggerating when I say this was the absolute best breakfast buffet I have ever eaten, not just at Disney, but really, anywhere on the planet. So, if like me, you've never considered going to Animal Kingdom Lodge just for breakfast, you are missing out. And if you are actually staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge, eat there every single day. #EveryDay #Seriously
The menu does NOT do this place justice. I went a little crazy with the pictures, but I didn't want to miss anything. Man, I wish I was at Disney right now. Nom Nom Nom
I visited so many resorts and dining locations that I never would have otherwise. I learned so much about all the resorts, where they are located, how the rooms are set up, what each has to offer, and so on. I learned things you simply can only learn through being there. The photos and web descriptions do not do any of the places we visited the justice they deserve.
I have an all new respect for Disney's value resorts. They may not be for everybody, but I think everyone could find something to enjoy at any of them, especially the theming that is just over the top Disney perfection. I was pleasantly surprised at not only the incredible theming, but also the dining experiences at these resorts. You do NOT miss out by staying at a less expensive value resort. In fact, you could feasible stay at any of them, and if your budget allows, put more money into deluxe dining or adding extra magic like an After Hours event or even VIP tours. Ask me about any of these, if you are interested.
The moderates we visited were also just beautiful. The attention to detail that Disney painstakingly has perfected did not go unnoticed by me. I LOVE that in Coronado Springs, Disney paid homage to The Three Caballeros, my favorite hidden gem in the Mexican Pavilion at Epcot. (If you never ventured inside the Mexican Pavilion, do it and in the back left corner, you will find this fantastic little piece of Disney perfection) And the refurbishments at Caribbean Beach are top notch. The lobby alone is just overflowing with deluxe quality decor. Be sure to take the time to wander through the resort properties. Curved tropical tree-lined paths wind you through walking trails, play areas for the kids, sunrise/sunset viewing areas, and even hammocks dotting the landscape overlooking the water.
And what can I say about the Deluxe resorts we visited? The attention to detail is unimaginable. What a creatively explosive job that must be for those imagineers that plot and plan and decorate these spectacular destinations. From the characters imbedded in the tiled floors at The Grand Floridian to the characters constellations on the drapes at the Yacht Club, you could spend all day just taking in all the visually pleasing magic (and Hidden Mickeys) Disney has sprinkled seemingly effortlessly into the decor of each resort. And though it seems randomly silly, at the Beach Club Resort, I took a photo looking outside a window of a corner where two buildings meet. It isn't even an area that guest can visit, but Disney made that area a beautifully landscaped square, simply because if you look out the window or over a railing, you'll see it. I can imagine that at any other place on Earth, this would have been a void of nothingness maybe even a place for garbage bins, but Disney doesn't miss a chance to make even this little square of nothingness, simply lovely. That is what sets Disney apart, the DISNEY DETAILS. (Go back and see if you can find the photo I am referring to)
