Breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe

A very pretty cafe!

A very pretty cafe!

I was invited out to breakfast to the Grand Floridian Cafe by my friends this morning.

It’s a very pretty restaurant and the food is very good (try the vanilla flavored French Toast…so good!)

The cafe is very pretty, especially in the morning with the sunlight streaming in through the windows.  It’s all pinks and creams, with lovely views of the Grand Floridian rose garden.

Elegant, yet unpretentious, the Grand Floridian Cafe is a delightful restaurant. The Victorian motif features lovely florals and muted tones. A wall of windows overlooks the courtyard and landscaped rose gardens of the Grand Floridian Resort.

Two Girls

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale
by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
