Magic Kingdom Day Two

Magic Kingdom Day Two

I woke up Friday morning with a little bit of sadness....it was our last day in Disney!  Instead of taking the girls to Epcot {which I love but don't think it's as kid friendly} we went back for another day at Magic Kingdom.  The morning started off with one last call from Olaf, and sadly my dead cell phone.  No matter what I did it wouldn't turn on,  Instead of letting it consume me, I just left it behind and headed out for a great day!!

First we had to take some pictures outside Ariel at our hotel.  I really meant to take more pictures of the whole resort, but I forgot...oh well.

 



We took the ferry over and got to the park just after it opened.  We had to pick up our lunch picture from Cinderella from the other day, and we all wanted to grab "I'm Celebrating" buttons for Charlie's birthday.  She wouldn't wear hers, but Emmy made sure to let everyone know that Charlie was turning 3 on Sunday!

We wandered up Main Street a little, and I think rode the carousel for the first time of the day {many more to follow} .


Charlie was being extremely clingy to me this day, and not interested in most of the things Emmy was.  So Skip and I ended up splitting up a decent amount.  He would go off with Emmy and I would stay with Charlie.  The first activity we did this for was Belle's Enchanted Tales.  Emmy and Skip went to meet Belle and Charlie and I just wandered around exploring.


When they were rode Dumbo {again} and headed over to the Casey Jr. Splash pad.  By this time it was starting to look very ominous out, so we decided to head over to lunch.

 


Since it had opened, I have been dying to eat at Be Our Guest...the restaurant at the Beast's castle.  It is a table service restaurant at night, but only quick-service during the day!  I had heard that it gets super crowded, so at 10:40 {it opens at 10:30} we bolted over there as the rain started falling.

Well apparently we were not the only ones to have this idea, and we had to wait a really long time to eat.  We waited at least 30 minutes outside the castle, and another 30 inside.

 


The inside waiting was much harder as I had to hold Charlie because strollers have to be left outside and girlfriend was not happy.  I tried every trick in the book and she still refused to stop screaming.  I thought my arms were going to fall off from the sheer exhaustion of carrying her.  Now yes, I knew she was having a tough day and an hour long wait was not something that would help her.  But honestly, I wanted to go so bad that I just decided to deal with the fussiness and make the best of it.  This was the one thing I really wanted to do on the trip.

And let me tell you, it was worth it.  All the crying, and waiting, and getting soaked outside was seriously so worth it.  You order your food from a kiosk when you walk in, and then go find a seat.  Somehow {magic} the servers know where you're sitting and bring your food out to you on the fancy carts from the movie.  There are three different rooms you can sit in, and you really feel like you've walked into the movie!!

 

 


And let me tell you, this was some of the best food we ate at Disney!  Seriously, I would have eaten there every day if I could.  And the grey stuff?  It really is delicious!


Once we figured subjecting our kids to that torture, we headed out for an afternoon filled with rides!  We headed over and rode the carousel again.  Then Skip and Emmy headed off to ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train {which I was super bummed about not going on, but Charlie threw an epic tantrum anytime she couldn't see me, so it was really for the best} and Charlie and I wandered around a bit down by Tom Sawyer's Island.  It was tough since I didn't have a phone, so Skip and I had to kick it old school and pick a time and place to meet up!


After that, I tried to do something nice for Skip and we all went to go see The Hall of the Presidents.  Sadly the girls started fussing after about 10 minutes, but at least he got to see the Gettysburg Address!



We were headed towards the Tomorrowland Speedway when I saw a whole bunch of people online near where we saw Rapunzel when we were here two years ago.  I told Skip to hop on the end and I would find out what was going on....cause when you're in Disney get online first and ask questions later!  The cast member in front said the line was to meet Merida and it was only about 1/2 hour wait.  Perfect!  I waited with the girls and Skip got them some snacks to help pass the time.  Emmy was so excited to meet her...even Charlie wasn't too afraid!

 



After that we headed on our original destination and Skip took Emmy on the Tomorrowland Speedway!  Girl is built for speed! Charlie and I were gonna ride the train, but it was just sitting in the station while they waited for the parade to be over, so we rode the carousel....again.

 

 


After we met up again, we all headed over to ride the train again.  Yay for sitting down finally!  I had only sat during lunch for about 15 minutes by this point and my legs were tired.  After that we just walked around a bit before getting online for Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.  That was probably the longest ride we waited for with Charlie, about 40 minutes, but it wasn't too bad.  I prefer the Toy Story ride in Hollywood Studios, but this was fun as well!

After that we took a little break for some pictures by Rapunzel's tower again, which Emmy was super upset you couldn't go up into.

 


There was this one Sophia toy Emmy had been wanting for days, so we headed out on a mission on Main Street to find it.  Thankfully we did after only a few stores and she was a very happy girl.

It was about dinner time then, so we headed back through the castle to eat at Pinocchio Village Haus.  We had eaten there when we came two years ago as well.  I had only wanted to eat at new places this time, but as Charlie was begging me for "no restaurants, eat in a kitchen!" I figured sticking with some quick and what we knew was good food, was the better option.

I took Charlie on the carousel one more time and we took pictures with the Sword in the Stone.


It was getting later at this point, and both girls were started to get to the end of their rope.  So we finished off the day with a ride on It's a Small World, which they loved.  Perfect ending to our day!

 


After that we said goodbye to Magic Kingdom and headed back to the car.  My phone was miraculously working again, yay, and we drove about 20 minutes to our next stop.  Since it was Charlie's birthday and Father's Day on Sunday, we didn't want to be just driving on that day.  So we checked into a resort just off of International Drive to enjoy a little more of Orlando for the weekend!
