Here’s that wedding pavilion I was telling you about last week; I think I’m standing in front of Disney’s Yacht Club

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

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! 🙂

Disney's Yacht Club Blue Sky Window

Standing in front of Disney’s Yacht Club resort (the Boardwalk side of the lobby) on Saturday October 11th 2008, I realized that the round “port hole” window was reflecting the clouds and blue sky behind me.

Had a liesurely morning, woke up whenever, showered unhurriedly. Now I’m waiting for the bus to Animal Kingdom. Cement headedness continues to be a problem, but the sore throat has thankfully vanished.

Lucky me – no sooner did I sit down and type out, “Yacht Club Bus Stop” then a bus to the Magic Kingdom appeared! Glad to be on my way. My first stop will be the bakery on Main Street to get vittels.

Yacht Club lobby has a little lounge where you can get breakfast in the morning or adult beverages in the evening.

Good gawd, does it ever end?

OK, this is now OFFICIALLY creepy. My back was turned to the door and I heard a *whoosh* sound. I whirled around, and there it was- MORE conference spam fairy droppings. In broad daylight! No longer do they lurk in shadows like vampires or werewolves. The conference spam fairies become ever bolder and more brazen. None of us are safe, I tell you! Lock up your children! Preserve your brains with a nice sauvignon blanc. Who knows when or where the conference spam fairies might strike next? =8^0

I get a small break now before a business dinner. Sadly, my park pass will not be used at all today. 🙁

The Gartner Symposium Spam Fairy Strikes Again

Conference spam fairies creep stealthily to your door uinder cover of darkness to steal your children…. No, no – that’s not it. They suck your brains out of your head… No, really, they just spam you under the door with vendor propaganda. But I do find it a little creepy
