It’s All in the Disney Details - Carpets


If you have ever been to a Disney Park, you have seen Disney’s impeccable attention to detail in every attraction, restaurant and gift shop.  Those details are what sets them apart and adds that special magical quality to every Disney vacation.  The details don’t stop at the theme parks but continue throughout each and every Disney Resort. 
Carpet at Disney's BoardWalk Resort

Last time we took a look at a seemingly ordinary object, the trash can, so it should be no surprise that today, we look at another often overlooked element of every Disney Resort…the carpet.  You may think of a carpet as something you simply walk on to get to your room but it’s actually got a lot of character.

The carpet in the hallway at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort continues the boardwalk theme with a design that includes a Ferris wheel and a rollercoaster.  If you look closely, you can see that Mickey is riding in the front car of the roller coaster!

The carpet at Disney’s Beach Club Resort includes elements from the beach and the sea.  There’s a hidden Mickey made out of bubbles and some characters from The Little Mermaid.

At Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, the carpets in the hallway enhance the nautical theme.  They are full of anchors, compass roses, nautical stars, helms, ropes and knots.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has a Native American themed carpet in the hallway complete with a not-so-hidden Mickey.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of the most elegant resorts so it makes sense that it has some very fancy carpets but that doesn’t mean they can’t have that Disney element of fun!  When I stayed at this resort in 2009, I noticed some hidden characters in the hallway carpets. Take a look at this hidden Minnie!

The carpet in the rooms at Disney’s All Star Music Resort isn’t as fancy as some of the Deluxe Resort carpets, but it’s still fun!  I love the bright colors and the way the Mickey silhouette is incorporated into the design.  It’s a really fun carpet that goes well with the larger than life icons throughout the grounds of the resort.

Just like their trash cans, Disney carpets are another overlooked detail that are worth a second look. Although you walk on them, they are truly a work of art. Plus, you never know when you might see a hidden Mickey!

Remember, it’s all in the Disney details!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
