Fire, yellow, blue, MAGIC! on Disney’s Yacht Club beach

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

For the second week in a row, I take it as a personal challenge to use photos from Disney that meet the requirements for all three of these Monday photo memes – Manic Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday and Blue Monday.

IMG_6726_crop-Disney-Yacht-Club-beach-yellow-moonLast October, I attended a geek conference at the Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel. I stayed next door at Disney’s Yacht Club resort. Conference weeks are totally exhausting. You arrive full of vim and vigor on Saturday and go to the parks. Sunday you ease into the conference thing by attending your first session at 11:00 am – the “soft opening” of the conference, if you will. When you’re done, you go to EPCOT to get some dinner at the Food and Wine Festival and stay late, eating and drinking – and blogging! You wander back to the hotel after the park closes and in the morning, the fun begins in earnest.

Monday morning comes and *BAM* – 7:00 am breakfast tent/industry networking opportunity, then the keynote address, followed by an insane mixture of sessions, seminars, logging into work to check email, picking up voice mail, returning calls, averting crises, rinse and repeat. At the end of the day, you might go down to the Expo floor and see what goodies the vendors are giving away (the conference hosts themselves had uncommonly decent ballpoint pens last year!). And then you head off to EPCOT again, because you are in Disney World, and it’s just a short walk away, and your Florida resident annual pass is burning a hole in your pocket, and food and wine as yet unknown are calling AND the park is open until 9:00 PM.

IMG_6727_crop-Disney-Yacht-Club-beach-fireworks-blue-moonAlong about Wednesday, I was starting to get tired, and actually left the park before Illuminations even began. As I ambled up to the Yacht Club, I realized it was movie night! There was a screen set up with parents and kids snuggled down on loungers watching Cars. I dallied to watch a scene or two and suddenly there were popping sounds and people running out to the beach to see. I turned around and there was the moon, high over the Beach Club resort, with the colorful fireworks from Illuminations visible above the rooftops.

So, there we have it – fire, yellow, blue, MAGIC! 🙂

  1. Wow! And I thought I was bad doing a meme every day and 2 on Sundays, you must be well and truly hooked! I have heard of the Mellow Yellow one but not the others, like the sound of Blue :o) Really well done on managing to do all three in one post! And I am soooooo jealous you get to go to Disney 😀

  2. You didn’t mention that the best part of this trip was that you didn’t pay for it! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.
