Adult Disney Trip 2105 was AMAZING! It really was the best trip of my life. I needed to sneak away for a little bit and it was so wonderful to be alone with Josh.

We got to Orlando and used the Magic Express to get right to our hotel. This year the Polynesian just finished adding a few studio villas for vacation club. We were luck to get a villa with a perfect view of the water and the castle. We ate dinner at Captain Cooks, which is a counter service place at the Poly. We took the monorail straight over to Magic Kingdom and took advantage of a few premade fastpasses to ride a handful of rides. After that we came back to the hotel to relax.
The next morning we went to the pool for a few hours where I took my research final. (B+ = just fine since I was just trying to hurry and get it done.) Then off to Hollywood Studios to ride a few rides. We ate lunch at the Brown Derby Lounge. The food was amazing and we had no wait! The people watching was perfect. It's a new - adult - favorite place. Josh beat me on Toy Story, but I would like a rematch. We didn't stay very long at HWS then headed back to our hotel to get the great chance to go to Trader Sams.

The entire bar is like an adult Disney playground. We we waiting in line at opening to get a table. We had a blast talking to all the people around us and trying all the crazy drinks. It is VERY crowded and usually has about a two hour wait ever night.
They were out of one of the mugs we wanted so we got on Ebay and bought it from there. We decided that was ok because we did order the drink in the bar, so it wasn't really cheating.
Then it was off to Downtown Disney. There has been some major expansion of DTD and we were happy to see it all. We ate dinner at the bar of a place called The Boathouse. We had the best Bang Bang Shrimp and crab cake I have ever tasted. We walked around and listened to all the live music. The whole place has such a festive vibe, we loved it.

We had evening fastpasses for Soarin' and then walked around to see the outdoor kitchens. We got treats in France (as always). I finally got my first wine slushy in France.
Saturday it was back to Magic Kingdom. We had lunch at Be Our Guest for the first time. The food and service was amazing, I can't wait to show the kids. We rode rides and looked around then went back to the Poly to have sushi at the Kona Island. We ended up back at Magic Kingdom that night to ride a few last things and see the lights. That park is so pretty at night.
