And while Disney World has yet to confirm a reopening date for the remaining hotels across property, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando has now announced a reopening date!
OK, I totally have ANOTHER awesome waffle sandwich to share with you today!!
And you can find it in an unlikely location…the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Resort. Nestled in Bonnet Creek, within the main gates of Walt Disney World, it’s a great mix of convenience and refinement. Plus, there are some seriously killer views of Disney’s theme parks from its balconies.
Today, we’re grabbing a casual lunch at the resort’s main lounge — Peacock Alley.
This spot’s namesake is the fashionable Peacock Alley of the Waldorf Astoria in New York City (the original was given the name due to the colorful peacock feathers the ladies wore in their hats); but while it’s elegant, you can definitely choose this location for a relaxed and casual lunch.
Everything about Peacock Alley makes me want to take a deep breath, sink into a comfortable chair, and relax. The cool colors and motif of peacock feathers surrounds you throughout (even on the carpet!).
The view is of the Waldorf’s pool area and golf course. And you may even catch a glimpse of Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
There is a luxuriously appointed bar on one wall, and there’s even a peacock etched in the mirror.
