Walt Disney World brings a lot to the table when it comes to Cinco de Mayo. The most obvious is the entire Mexico Pavilion within the World Showcase. But don’t forget the Coronado Springs resorts and one of Disney’s dining hidden gems….Maya Grille. In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, we will take a closer look at these locations to get into the Mexican spirit.

We started the week looking at some ways Disneyland is “better” than Walt Disney World.
We took a swim in some of the best pools at Walt Disney World.
Saw some signs on another edition of Wordless Wednesday.
We went over to EPCOT and grabbed a snack at L’Artisan des Glaces.
The news wire rolled with some updates from the world.
Finally, we grabbed some popcorn and took in some of the forgotten Disney movies of the 1980’s.
I will be back, next week, with another full slate of articles from the world of Disney.

Top Walt Disney World Pools by Resort Group
Disney pools come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the resort pools are better than others, in my opinion. Personally, I look for a big pool which has lots of activities for people of all ages to do from just lounging in the sun to going down a really big water slide. Most of my pool time, at Disney, is during the middle of day (sometime after lunch to until the afternoon thunderstorm rolls in). Today, we are going to look at the top pool in each resort class: value, moderate, and deluxe/deluxe villa.

Weekend Trip Report – Day One
My journey to Walt Disney World began bright and early at 5:45 am as my wife and I woke up to head the airport. Our daughter was safe and sound with my wife’s family and had not idea that we were taking this trip. We had an uneventful drive to the airport and getting through security was a breeze. Our flight to Charlotte was at the gate and ready to go. Our flight was relatively straight forward. My wife and I got to both enjoy aisle seats. We got to Charlotte early made our way to our gate for Orlando. Again, things went without a hiccup. Flight arrived on-time and we started the boarding process early. Another uneventful flight and we were in Orlando.
Maya Grill Dinner Review
I just returned from Walt Disney World on Monday night. It was only a short trip and my wife and I made the decision not to get the Disney Dining Plan. As a result, we chose restaurants that were more “off the beaten path.” These restaurants, for the most part, were at resorts not parks. This kept crowds down and were very easy to get a reservation. This review is on one of those restaurants – Maya Grill.
The Maya Grill is located at Coronado Springs which can make it difficult to get and from if you are not staying at Coronado Springs, not already in a theme park, or have your own car. My wife and I briefly toured EPCOT upon our arrival to Yacht Club and worked our way to the front of the park. From EPCOT, we took the bus to Coronado Springs. Our return was bit more tricky but I’ll save that for the end of the review.
