Disney Trip, Day 3
On our second day in Disney World, we headed for the mouse himself! Into Magic Kingdom we go! To the Contemporary Resort for breakfast at Chef Mickey's!
This was my breakfast! YUMMY!! The Mickey Mouse waffles were unbelievable!
While you eat, the characters come around to the tables to see you and take pictures. We weren't sure how Tucker would be because he's never been a big fan of posing with Santa or the Easter Bunny but he jumped right up and posed with everyone! (Don't let his face fool you; he had a GREAT time!)
Now that we were full, it was time to head to Magic Kingdom. We took the Monorail, which was fun! We made it to the castle! (I have pictures from the Disney Photo Pass of us in front of it; when I figure out how to get them on the computer, I'll share them!) when I asked Tucker what he thought of the castle, he said he thought it would be bigger! lol
We headed straight for Space Mountain and went right on! Tucker loved it and in fact, when he went back with Michael on Saturday, they rode it four more times!
Another fun ride in Tomorrowland was Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger! Tucker sat with Michael and had a great time shooting the guns! Tucker also really enjoyed Carousel of Progress and still sings the song every day!
Michael was the brave one to get in a car with Tucker! Let's just say that I don't have to worry about Tucker becoming a race car driver! He was holding up traffic! Apparently there was some disagreement about who was supposed to be pushing what pedal....
We made our way through Fantasyland to the Haunted Mansion. It's a Small World is closed for renovation and they're building a castle for Belle! The Haunted Mansion is one of my favorites! We rode it 3 times in a row! Then we waited for Jul and the kids to catch up with us there. While I waited for them, Tucker and Michael rode it again and then we rode it with all of them!
Next we made our way over to Big Mountain Thunder Railroad which said it had a 20 minute wait. It took us 20 minutes to get to the ride itself and it was so much fun! Julie took this picture of Jake, Tucker and Michael!
After lunch at Peco Bills (yummy Taco salad) , we made our way to Pirates of Caribbean and it was yet another ride we loved!
We made our way through Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse which was really cool. Then it was time to stake out our spots for the parade!
We then went back to the hotel for a little while to relax in the pool and then we headed to our dinner at Whispering Canyon at the Wilderness Lodge. This place was a lot of fun and the food was AMAZING!!!! After a couple of days of Disney food, it was nice to have homestyle food!
this was definitely a fun place-when Tucker asked for Ketchup, a couple brought over twenty bottles! Tucker also got to ride a broomstick pony around the restaurant with all the other kids!
Michael and Tucker were impressed with the milkshakes!
So that wraps up Day 3 of our trip! Next up....Animal Kingdom!
