While my ex Mike was recovering from his illness in 2013 I had told him that we would take another great trip to Disney. I really didn't think we ever would but I had wanted to give him something to look forward too/. In May of 2016, we were finally able to go back. I no longer had to give medications to Charlie and Mike's dad passed away in April of last year. We booked the Polynesian and were very happy to finally be going back. Mike had booked a room with a view of the water. The best thing happened, they upgraded us to concierge! I couldn't believe it and it actually made me cried. I told them how it was a special trip for us since he had almost died after our last trip in Feb 2013. Anyway, the resort and room were beautiful as always. We ate one day at the Coral Reef for the first time. For some reason I thought you picked your meal from the aquarium and I was happy to find out that that is not the case. There was a huge sting ray swimming around and it was nice to sit and see the fish. We also paid extra one night to stay in the Magic kingdom for extra hours. The weather was perfect that night and there was hardly anyone there. I think we did the 7 dwarves mining train 4 times in like and hour. We were going back and forth between that and Peter Pan I think. We also got to ride Splash mountain 3 times in a row, n a log by ourselves, front row, with no one in any of the logs behind or in front of us. We would have done it more but we were hurting from sitting so long. I have a great picture of Mike sitting waiting for the Country Bears and he was the only one. The place was empty. We had a great time and we are going to try and go again in May.
