Day 11: Easy Like Sunday Morning / H&H@TP 2017

Day 11 of Hibiscus & Holly At The Poly 2017, the latest of my Disney Trip Reports, is here! Today was an easy and relaxed day with Sunday Brunch at California Grill, followed by an afternoon at Disney Springs, some pool time, and then in the evening it was Trader Sam’s and watching Holiday Wishes from the beach at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

The Trip Report Index tells you a bit about the planning of this trip, as well as some info about me and my family (the Cast Members!) In short you have me, Michelle; Steve, my husband, and Liam, my son. It also, of course, has the full list of days for Hibiscus & Holly At The Poly 2017.

My trip reports are photo heavy! I include single images, or smaller galleries – either way, pages may take a little longer to load depending on your internet connection speed. You can click on gallery images to enlarge them. I don’t include all the photos I take, but you will be able to find all of the images from Hibiscus & Holly At The Poly 2017 in my Flickr Collection of albums from this trip. To see just today’s extra photos, you can view this Flickr Album.

Our morning started with another visit to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for Sunday Brunch at California Grill – called Brunch at the Top. This would be the second time we’ve been for brunch at Cali Grill, and knowing how good it was last time, were looking forward to it again.

Brunch is served on a Sunday only, between 10am and 1pm, and at the time of dining it was $80 per person. Complimentary valet parking is included, so if you drive to the Contemporary, you don’t have to worry about parking as it is done for you for free – you just have to tip the valet.

Once inside the Contempo, we took an elevator up to the second floor to check-in, and were then taken up in the private elevator to 15th floor where California Grill is located. We were lead to our table which was over on the other side of the restaurant, past the buffet line. We’ve dined at Cali Grill several times now, but never sat over here so it was nice to get a different perspective!
