Week Ten - Lights, Camera, Grog!

November 22, 2015  •  1 Comment

Hello all and welcome to my tenth blog post.  This past week was relatively quiet compared to last weeks adventures, but we did have some fun none the less.  We visited Disney's Hollywood Studios to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights as this is going to be the last season they will be displayed.  This was the first time we experienced the light display and I have to say it was amazing!  To add to the festive atmosphere, Disney blows some type of sudsy substance to resemble snow.  We really enjoyed it and I'm glad we got to see it in it's final year.

We made another visit to Disney this past weekend, but we did not enter any of the parks.  Instead we enjoyed drinks and appetizers at Trader Sams Grog Grotto which is located in the Polynesian Resort.  Sams has an inside and outside seating area, but to get a truly unique experience you have to sit inside.  This is well known because there is always a wait for inside seating whereas there is always a table available outside.  What makes seating inside unique you ask?  Everything!  From the decor to the wait staff yelling the drink orders and other attention grabbing phrases/chants.  The decor includes a mock window with a view of a volcano that erupts, an occasional thunderstorm, and many other tiki related garb.  One of the drinks on the menu is called the Polynesian Pearl.  Whats cool about this is it is served in a pearl shaped cup that is dispensed from a giant oyster named "Shelly".  The server will take the Pearl from Shelly and a new pearl magically appears for the next order.  Most of the beverages are served in souvenir glasses that are available for purchase.  The whole atmosphere inside is neat if your in the mood for a lot of yelling and antics.  If you simply want to enjoy the drinks and have conversation, the outside area is better suited.  The outside area is simply tables with umbrellas, but your overlooking the resorts marina and there is live Hawaiian entertainment.  The food was all appetizers with a polynesian influence.  We sampled the dumplings and a sushi roll.

After our "grog", we went for a stroll down to the Grand Floridian Resort to take a peek at the giant gingerbread house.  It was giant, and they sell gingerbread items from inside!  All a bit pricey I might add.  Anyway, that rounds out this week.  Not much, but enjoyable.

I'm looking forward to the holiday this week and the adventures that come along with it.
