Disney for Adult R&R

As an empty nester, with a broken foot, the thought of going to Disneyworld for a week was, well, not quite as exciting as it was with the now grown kids. However, my guy, Julius, and I had a very relaxing and enjoyable trip, and my foot is nearly healed. This trip had been planned months ago, to attend our friends vow renewal; Postponing was not an option, even with crutches.

The vow renewal was beautiful and managed so well by Disney staff. The ceremony was held on Sunrise Terrace, the 4th floor of Wilderness Lodge. It was a beautiful ceremony enhanced by the gorgeous day and scenery. Itwas private, romantic, and a lovely ceremony led by Pastor Jack. After the ceremony, we dined at California Grill, overlooking the Magic Kingdom and the castle covered in lights. All in all, a lovely day.

Obviously, the parks were not our main attraction. Enjoying great meals, resting from a strenuous job and home remodeling were my highest priorities.

I think we slept for the first 2 days! Adult size exhaustion. Then, the glorious rains came, more rest, more relaxing, and yet great food as always. With the rain came the cold, around 40 degrees, I think, cold enough for me to wear my Columbia system.Of course, we found that I was always colder because I was sitting. Julius seem to fair better than I, as he was walking (pushing) , my wheelchair.

You can always count on Disney to serve up the best meals, if you have planned correctly and secured your advanced dining reservations (ADRs). We had, but with the addition of crutches to the itinerary, we cancelled most of our preplanned meals, for food that was more conveniently located. We focused on dining at the resorts instead of in the parks.

I found the parks to be disappointing in a wheelchair, at butt level. The scenery is just not the same! Oh, it is still doable, but not as enjoyable. Thankfully, this first full week in December is not a busy time at the World, so getting around was manageable. Julius was great about pushing me around, and even allowing me some independence. . I did not wander far.

Saratoga Springs Resort (SSR) provided me a wheelchair, free of charge. A scooter from Disney runs about $30 a day, and I really didn't want to drive it on and off the bus. I used the crutches to get around a bit,and then the wheelchair for long distances. Julius folded the wheelchair and loaded it onto the buses. This worked for us, but may not for those less patient than Julius.
