Day 17: Dozing & Dole Whips / WDW-40, 2016

Day 17 of WDW-40, the latest of my Disney Trip Reports, is here! Today was a rest day for us. I still wasn’t feeling well, and felt like I needed a full on down day. I couldn’t face going to a noisy theme park with a banging headache. My brother and his girlfriend were off doing their own thing again today, so it meant Steve and I could just have a rest day, hanging out at our resort.

Today’s trip report is the shortest ever…

I spent a lot of today lying in bed, dosed up on meds, and feeling sorry for myself. We had both lunch and dinner from the Poly’s quick/counter service – Capt. Cook’s, and went out for some fresh air late afternoon grabbing a Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai, and having a wander over to Grand Floridian. Before coming back to Poly and seeing the Torch Lighting Ceremony.

The walk to and from Poly and Grand Floridian is a lovely one. It takes maybe about 20 minutes? The white sandy beach edges the path, and since this was our first visit as DVC Members, we started a new tradition of writing in the sand, which we will do for every trip we take from now on! Once back home at the Polynesian, we stopped at the Pineapple Lanai to buy a Dole Whip – a much beloved Disney snack! We actually had Dole Whip Floats which is soft serve pineapple or vanilla ice cream with pineapple juice – yummy! They cost just over $5 each.

Sadly, at this time I am unable to keep up with two blogs… but I didn’t want to let Disney Tips & Trip Reports go completely.

I do have plans going forward for this website, which includes bringing some of my Disney blogger friends on-board with their particular set of Disney knowledge! Once I have the plans all mapped out, I will fill you in on all the details!
