For some reason it really doesn't seem like Christmas. Maybe it's because we saw Christmas personified at Disney during our Thanksgiving vacation there. All the decorations were up and carols were sung. We came back to a messy house and no Christmas decorations. We probably should have decorarted before we left -- but no time, no time. With recovering from my cataract surgery the week before, we barely got packed.
Then we were worn out before we got there. And just to let you know, I was tired all the time we were there. We stayed at the Port Orleans French Quarter Resort and I was so disappointed. The beds weren't comfortable, chairs weren't comfortable, and the food was blah. Do I sound like Mrs. Scrooge? Seriously, Motel 8 probably has better rooms. We didn't have a microwave even. We did have a mini-fridge that wasn't really what it should have been. Thank goodness for the ice machine!
Even when we had reservations for our meals (Deluxe Dining Plan, mind you), we had to wait for 1 to 2 hours to get seated. Food was frankly the last thing on my mind by the time we were seated. Most of the time we had to stand and wait. A couple of times we had a place to sit.
The only bright side to the trip was getting to see Grandbaby sometimes enjoying herself. Needless to say, we couldn't keep up with her and her parents! LOL
Sorry to be a Gripie Gussie, but I was so disappointed. Next time I want to go to Disney, I'll stay at the nearest Hampton Inn. The one where we stayed on the way back home made the Resort look like what it was. And, if you ever need a place to stay in Valdosta, GA, stay at the Hampton! Super room, super service, good food!
