It’s time for our Second Annual Beyond Neverland Trip! I can’t believe it’s already been one year since our first. It was a year ago on our trip that we decided to document our travels in this blog.
As usual, we plan on taking it easy, while trying at least one or two new activities. One thing we always say that we’re going to do is play mini golf at either Winter Summerland or Fantasia Gardens. It has become the running joke that we will play mini golf everytime we go, because we always seem to run out of time to play. This year we are staying at Carribbean Beach Resort – a hotel we haven’t stayed at in 26 years. I remember it vividly and look forward to rediscovering the offerings. I am so ready for
our little two night sisters’ getaway. At this time tomorrow, we will be there!
To celebrate Christmas in July, I am taking a look at one of my favorite resorts to visit during Christmastime. All of the resorts in the Boardwalk area are beautifully decorated for Christmas, and I really enjoy the way the Yacht Club is decorated with a nautical theme. I adore how the Christmas tree peeks through the glass doors from the Boardwalk entryway.
The best part of the lobby is the whimsical train set and Christmas village. I am a huge fan of miniatures and little villages, and I always spend time looking at the train set and all the details of the miniature village at the Germany pavilion in Epcot. The train winds its way through a snowy seaside village that features Disney figurines and buildings (some of which are sold at Department 56) as well as shops and restaurants throughout the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Some of the displays are a nod to Disney films as well. There is an incredible amount of detail to look at, and the last time I was there during the holiday season, I went back to look at the display a few times. So with only 5 months left until Christmas, I look forward to seeing the Yacht Club decorations real soon. The next time you’re at WDW during the holidays, make sure to check out the Yacht Club!!
