Our 2-week vacation at Walt Disney World has come to an end. This morning we will be pulling out of here and heading north into Georgia. It has been a great trip, but I'm glad we are now ready to leave. We have made so many other plans for our trek back to Washington and we are anxious to get started now.
We did get the chance to enjoy the special Dessert Buffet and reserved viewing of the fireworks show over the Cinderella Castle last Sunday evening. It was a little iffy there for a while as a big thunderstorm, with lots of lightning, rolled in. We had wisely taken our umbrellas with us to the Magic Kingdom when we went over there around 4:00 pm. We had dinner at the Liberty Tree Tavern and then did some rides and attractions until 9:00 pm when it was time to go to the area for the Dessert Buffet. Main Street was all ablaze with brilliant white lights.
There were a lot of desserts at the long buffet tables. Typical of Disney chefs, they are made very small so that you can sample several different types. They were sooooooo good. There were probably 25 tables filled with guests. Prior reservations were required. The four of us enjoyed good conversation and those incredible desserts and some coffee.
The fireworks could have been a little better because there were still a lot of storm clouds above WDW. Still, they were fun to watch. It brought back memories of our trips to Disneyland with our kids when we would stay until the nightly fireworks were over.
I still have a few WDW photos left over, and I may just stick a few in from time to time. In the meanwhile, it is time to move on to bigger and better things. I hope you all enjoyed our trip to Disney World.
