I went home for the holidays in Orlando. We had Christmas Dinner at Garden Grove in the Disney Swan Hotel. It was a buffet. The food was okay …not amazing, but I guess decent for the price ($35 per person). Beer and alcohol is extra.
My favorites were the Prime Rib with Au Jus and creamy and fresh horseradish. The horseradish was key. I give them props for making mini corndogs and trying butternut squash ravioli. Also a big selection of holiday desserts. I liked the Eggnog Panna Cotta.
The best part of the dinner was Goofy, Pluto and Chip & Dale walking around. But where’s Santa? I think Chip & Dale are girls inside. I think one of them was into me. …At least I hope they were girls.
It’s funny seeing little kids going crazy over the Disney characters walking around. They looked so hyper and like small wasted adults. I wonder if they really believe that the autograph they’re getting is real or not.
We walked around to the connected resorts, like the Swan hotel and Boardwalk. It’s amazing how awesome the area looks. Disney seems a lot more grandiose from what I remember as a kid. It’s kind of cool.

Oh yeah. My mom wishes you a Merry Christmas!
