Today we have the start of an exciting Guest Blog by Chrisie. For reference, Legoland is Northwest of Orlando in Winterhaven. It is a several hour drive from South Florida where Chrisie, Yan, and Louie live.
Guest Blog by Chrisie …
We’ve had a challenging year, especially Louie. He didn’t want anything for Christmas except for the family to spend time together, and to go to Legoland. I don’t know where he heard about Legoland, but it’s been on his wishlist for a while. He has a wishlist of places he’d like to visit/see.
We were given a gift to take Louie to Legoland. Yan had a couple of days off (miracle), so we made reservations and got a ticket for all of us the day after Christmas. We would stay at a hotel in Orlando on Christmas night, and head to Legoland the next morning.
We let Louie open his gifts on Christmas Eve, because we planned to leave on Christmas morning. He received some nice gifts and was very happy. I made a charcuterie platter, and we all enjoyed that on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Day, we drove North, and Yan thought it would be be fun to take Louie to the Dinosaur Restaurant in Disney Springs. We had never been there but anything ‘dinosaur’, we are told to try. We didn’t know much about Disney Springs, but I did some research and prayed we would be able to get in without a reservation…it was Christmas Day. Side note, Disney Springs has free parking.
We made it!
The hostess was kind and said it would be a 20 minute wait for lunch. We were called in less than 10 minutes! Prayer works 😊. We were seated near the back, had prompt service and DELICIOUS FOOD! Really good food. Yan had the meatloaf. I had a medium steak. Louie had a gluten free pizza with mashed potatoes, and ate the entire thing!
We walked around, then headed to the Double Tree. Again, friendly service and a clean room. We were exhausted, and full, and went to bed early without dinner. Legoland tomorrow!
Tune in tomorrow, to find out how the visit to Legoland went. Were Chrisie, Yan, and Louie all crazy, going to Legoland during the Christmas Holiday ? ❤️
