A "Grand" Morning

I knew I'd be catching a monorail to the Magic Kingdom from here, but I wasn't in any hurry I just wanted to take in a bit of the Grand Floridian first, the photos of the pictures of the rabbit and monkey were taken in a stairwell area, I probably would not have taken them if I hadn't taken that photo of that rabbit outside the wedding pavilion a few minutes earlier, then again how does that explain the photo of the picture of the monkey... yeah it was just because they were a set. The photos two frames up and two frames down show a different pool than the one I took pictures of on the way in, this pool is in a courtyard more or less surrounded by the buildings of the Grand Floridian Resort.

The Grand Floridian Society orchestra appears to be about the same size as the Jazz band I took audio and photos of later in the trip, and the placement of the photo is near where the jazz orchestra plays, though I don't recognize any of the members, presumably this photo is several years old, and the members have changed. This huge lace table cloth is framed on the wall at the base of the stairs, I don't know if it is something that normally would be considered of such a artistic merit that it should be treated as a piece of art, or if it's just more about having a piece that evokes an earlier era.

Above: Yes, the Chandeliers are huge, but I got more interested in getting a good photo of the dome (Below).

Above: I think that last Dome photo may make a decent desktop photo.
Below: Yes more photos of a Disney Bathroom, this one is near 1900 Park Faire just off the lobby.

Above and Below: photos taken from inside the Toy Store at the GF assembled into big animated Gifs these may take a while to load fully. Once monorail Silver pulled into the station I hustled over to get on board!
