Our first day at Disney we checked out our hotel then headed to Downtown Disney. There was a lot of construction going on but it was nicely blocked off so you didn't see the mess and there were pictures and advertisements on the walls so it wasn't just blah to look at. It also rained while we were there, but that didn't stop us from having fun.
We had dinner reservation at Paradiso 37. We started off the week right with some drinking and amazing food.
I have to say the food was amazing. (yes I know I just said this) We both ordered "From the Sea." It came with fire roasted salmon, baja fish tacos, and shrimp ceviche with tortilla salad. The fire roasted salmon was the best salmon I have ever had, and I eat a lot of salmon.
There are so many shops and restaurants in downtown. I could have spend atleast a full day of just walking around and window shopping in all the stores. My favorite store would have to be the World of Disney. It is the largest Disney store in the world, hence the name. There are so many different rooms, each categorized, you can get lost in the place. (I did a few times)
The nice thing about all the Disney stores throughout all the parks and resorts is their prices are the same. The price of a coffee mug at one store is going to be the same at every store that has that mug. The selection does vary by store though.
We ended up going to downtown Disney twice during out stay. We could have went more if it hadn't been raining every day and we weren't in the mood to get wet. On our second visit we at lunch at Eat of Sandwich. It was also really good.
There is so much in downtown that we didn't get to do that I would love to go back and do such as:
- Disney Quest
- eat at Fulton's Crabhouse
- build my own Lego person (even though I wasn't impressed with the store)
- eat at T Rex
Can't wait to go back in a few years.
