our day touring the Magic Kingdom Hotels [mini film]

Our first day in Florida we took some time to explore the hotels of Magic Kingdom.  Having ever only visiting Disneyland Resort, I knew that I knew nothing about Disney World.  All I knew was it was huge, and that I had been memorizing my Disney World app since I found out I was getting the opportunity to attend the IB Global Conference in Orlando.  Our hotel had a shuttle that dropped us off right in front of the security checkpoint for Magic Kingdom.  I always see those friendly cast members at different information stands and booths, but I never actually talk to them.  This trip has been very different.  If I see you are a cast member, I will surely be asking you a slew of new questions that just popped into my head.  After speaking to the nice man at the bus and transportation window, he let us know we were just a five minute walk from the Polynesian Resort.  Perfection, just hearing that really set my day in the right trajectory.  I had a semi-plan, and it seemed like it was semi-working.  After exploring the Polynesian Resort, we ended up taking a boat around the lagoon, stopping at Magic Kingdom, and getting off at the Grand Floridian.  After walking the grounds, we hopped on the monorail and took a ride to the Contemporary Resort.  Oh holy Mary Blair mosaic!!!  I marveled at this beauty for a bit, and Ev found her way through yet another gift store.  I must say, my four year old handled this hotel tour very well, considering she really thought the plane was going to land in the middle of Disney World, she's tolerated the wait until we officially visit the parks tomorrow!

Here's a look at our day exploring the hotels in the Magic Kingdom Resort area.  The Polynesian was clearly my favorite!  Scroll all the way down to find the mini film at the bottom!
and here's our mini film from the day...
