DAY 4 - Grand Discovery

Buffet breakfast to start the day.  Choices were more plentiful than Sedona; food quality perhaps slightly worse.  So far, food compares the least well to other adventures: -1 for breakfast I'm sorry to say

The day had one Adventures by Disney tour in it, and then we were free for lunch, the afternoon, dinner, and through the evening.  For the tour, we climbed on the motorcoach with a Local Expert, and he took us to three locations around the canyon and let us explore on our own.  I really enjoyed the ability to roam and explore independently! +1 for whoever determined the logistics of the tour  On the other hand, the Local Expert wasn't very good.  He told lots of stories about accidents and injuries and had a boatload of silly jokes (but we already had that covered with our Adventure Guides), so I have to give the Local Expert a -1 for the absence of any depth to the information he shared.  Hopefully, he isn't the only Local Expert Disney uses for this tour.

We had lunch at the Bright Angel Cafe.  It was moderately priced, and - while the food was simple diner fare - it was - so far - better than our tour meals.  We relaxed and explored through the afternoon and had dinner at the fine dining option, El Tovar.  Several of the group went together on the motorcoach to a local bar where they served pizza, and - from what I heard - they had a great time.  We enjoyed the ambiance and food at El Tovar; not your most economical option but - for us - the perfect way to end the day

Early morning, this mama sheep came up to the hotel to eat the green grass on the lawns.
