Our Anniversary Day ~ Part 1.

WDW trip report. October 2011, first ever visit and 5th wedding anniversary.

Thursday October 28th, 2011

*On a side note, I want to say in advance that this post will be mostly images with very little text, haha. 

Our 5 year anniversary!! Today was officially our anniversary date and it was a day we decided to not visit any parks. For a break today we thought it would be fun to explore our resort, seeing and taking photos with all the icons at POP could be really neat, and checking out Downtown Disney before getting ready for our nice dinner that night.

The view right outside our door. (If you look close you can see the buildings that are now the Art of Animation resort) 

We had a giant laptop at the elevators. 90's building!

So because we are at WDW there was no way I was going to sleep in at all, haha, so we were up and getting ready to go for a walk fairly early. The theme and icons at POP were part of the reason I wanted to stay there, so we walked the whole resort and took lots of pictures! 

Yay for Roger Rabbit.

Posing like a potato!

8 Track hide the stair well at the 70's building

Wanna play Twister?!

There was a bit of rain that morning and it was still cloudy so there was not many people walking around the resort, which was okay to us because we were being pretty silly taking our pictures and checking things out.

Giant foosball table

Andy fits right in, haha.

I got this.

REACH!!! I really wanted to ride the Big Wheel

Run Andy, run! 

When we got around to the 50's area of the resort I loved seeing the Lady and the Tramp icons. Andy asked why they were in that particular area so I told him it was because the movie was released in the 50's. He was  pretty surprised that the movie was that old. I really liked the pool area here, the bowling theme is really cute.



If I try really hard I might be able to pick a song

I laughed a lot when I saw this song title.

After walking around the resort we started talking about getting some breakfast, we decided on going over to Everything Pop because we really liked the food we got there our first night in. 

Icons outside the Everything POP building.

So I will fully admit, I am a sucker for a good waffle! I was really excited to have the Mickey waffles at Crystal Palace and was very happy to try the POP waffle as well, haha. Andy and I both got the POP waffle with a sausage patty and bacon and an extra treat too.

My strawberries with whip cream. (Also has chocolate sauce.)

Andy's chocolate chip pastry. 

Now that we were pleasantly full it was time to catch the bus to the Downtown Disney District. I was excited to check out this are and see all the differences from Downtown Disney here in Anaheim. I wasn't really planning on doing any shopping, mostly just walking around sightseeing and enjoying the area. 

Made it to Downtown!

Love all the added details in the area

Andy wanted me to pretend the broom was tossing water on me, haha.

The Marketplace area of Downtown was pretty crowded, mostly we just check out the outside areas unless there was a store either of us really wanted to go into.

Chillin with Pooh and friends!

Buzz Lightyear got fresh with Andy, haha!

Loved the tables the the Ghirardelli shop

I knew for sure that I wanted to go inside the World of Disney store but once we got in there it was super busy and kind of hard to get around, so we didn't actually stay that long.

Super cute Halloween decor outside


The guys moved around, shook the bars and made spooky noises!

They were scary, haha.

Loved this display inside the shop.

Continuing on along the Marketplace portion of Downtown we had more fun sightseeing, people watching and taking random pictures!

Made of Legos!! So cute.

I love that it looks like we got photo bombed! 

I think this is where I will end part 1. In part 2 I will share the rest of our time at the Downtown Disney District and our amazing anniversary dinner at California Grill!!

Coming soon!
