When we first arrived at Disney World we took the boat over to the Magic Kingdom. Mr. Bill remarked, as we passed the Polynesian Resort, he never had any desire to stay there. It looked boring to him from the outside. I hadn't thought much about it, but I did like the lit torches when we passed by on the monorail. I decided this trip, since we had a free day, we would stop in and tour the three hotels on the line. We toured the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian Resort and the Contemporary Resort
From a distance it doesn't look too exciting. I could understand his lack of enthusiasm.

In the sanctuary the teens had a fun 10 minute skit they put on every half hour of the evening. The one side of the church's parking lot had a huge bouncy house and a dozen or so carnival games with prizes and the other side of the church on the parking lot we had a Trunk or Treat.
