Welcome to those of you joining me from Heidi’s Head and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.
Guilt. That’s what it is. How can I vacation with my family- treasured time– and carve out 20 or 30 minutes for just me? Imagine how much we could accomplish in the parks in that amount of time. Why that’s one (FASTPASS) spin on Space Mountain right there! It is only now, now that my kids have grown, that I can entertain the thought of doing something just for me when we’re together at a Disney Park. This month’s topic is “Disney Indulgences for Mother’s Day“, so here goes…
Whether you can run or not, own a pair of sneakers or live only in flip-flops, you owe it to yourself to take a stroll, jog or sprint on my favorite path in the world (and World); this parcel of real estate is the approximately 1 mile trek from the Polynesian Resort to the Wedding Pavilion. It borders the Seven Seas Lagoon, has spectacular views of the Magic Kingdom, and is surely the closest thing to running nirvana I have found. I know what you’re thinking- that’s not indulgent. But it is! It meets all the criteria for such:
1. a pleasure, habit, etc, indulged in; extravagance
Although an extravagance purely of time, running is quite the pleasurable habit!
While the Grand Floridian Villa construction will temporarily interfere with the usual path, there is plenty of room to ramble along, all the time with a view of the Most Magical Place on Earth. Once the Villas are complete, I am hoping we can once again run from the Polynesian to the Grand Floridian boat dock, most all in the site of the azure lagoon.
Two weeks after Mother’s Day, I’ll be “testing” the loop along Lago Dorado at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. (I understand the pathway even extends into a genuine wetlands area.) Who knows? My indulgence might just have some competition!
