Disney World- Day 2

Good Morning. Who is ready to hear about Day 2 of our adults only Disney vacation? I hope you are because I am excited to share our wonderful experience. 
If you missed my discussion about why we went on an adults only vacation to Disney World you can read about it HERE
Day 1 you can read about HERE



Day 2, our first full day at Disney and Magic Kingdom. We woke up, got dressed and headed to the bus stop to hop on the bus to the Magic Kingdom. Speaking of the bus it was crazy packed. Brian and I both ended up standing and not everyone waiting fit on the bus.

Magic Kingdom had extra magic hours first thing in the morning from 8-9, with park hours officially opening at 9. Extra magic hours are a perk of staying at a Disney World hotel you get early or late access to a different park each day (Disney determines which park which day and what times). This was our first time ever experiencing extra magic hours and will be planning on doing these again so worth it. We got to the park before 8 and headed straight down Main Street and stopped at Main Street Bakery (aka Starbucks) to get some much needed coffee.



We walked around for a few minutes and saw the wait time for Seven Dwards Mine Train ride. It was already at 30 minutes so we opted to get breakfast since we hadn't eaten yet, and we had a fast pass for Mine Train later in the day anyways. 



Brian had researched some food ideas before we even left on vacation. He wanted a Warm Cinnamon Roll from Gaston's Tavern. Brian is a big cinnamon roll fan, me I could take it or leave it.



We ended up being the only ones at Gaston's Tavern. What better time to sit in Gaston's chair. The warm, delicious, sweet, and sticky just like you would expect from a cinnamon roll. It was really big so we ended up sharing one. It hit the spot. 


After breakfast we headed over to Fantasyland. First ride of the morning Dumbo. Who doesn't love Dumbo? Then we road Barnstormer (which I keep calling brainstormer opps).


Next up was Mad Tea Party. Brian was less than thrilled. He isn't a fan on spinning around fast, but then he is the one to make it spin. We tried to ride Space Mountain next but it was closed with no idea when it was going to reopen. (We actually never got to ride it)

 

Time for my bragging moment. We rode Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. I am not a huge fan of this ride, I prefer Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios. But somehow I ended up winning. 


A Disney trip wouldn't be complete without a selfie in front of the castle. 


Magic Carpets of Aladdin


Snack break- Orange Cream Cup from Sunshine Tree Terrace. Swirl of Dole Orange Soft Serve and Vanilla Soft Serve Ice Cream. Another one of Brian's preplanned food ideas.


Drink Break - Back to Gaston's Tavern to get a LeFou's Brew. Surprisingly it was really good. It is frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped with passion fruit-mango foam. Again another one of Brian's food ideas. 


The last ride we rode that day Magic Kingdom was our fast pass for Seven Dwarf's Mine Train. This is a run thrill ride with awesome Snow White themeing. 

Other attractions we did while at Magic Kingdom before heading back to our hotel to get ready for dinner were:
- Under the Sea- Journey of The Little Mermaid
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Jungle Cruise
- Big Thunder Mountain (Fast Pass)
- Peter Pan's Flight (Fast Pass)
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover
- Tom Sawyer Island
- Swiss Family Treehouse

For lunch this day I had Columbia Harbour House. I ordered my food online and it was ready within a few minutes. It was great not having to stand in line to order than wait on food. We ordered while Brian was picking up his food from another restaurant. I must have been sick or taken over by alien's I didn't take pictures of our lunch. I ordered The Lobster roll with homemade potato chips. 
Brian ordered from Sleepy Hollow. He got a Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich. It was also really good. 

We took the bus back to our hotel. It was pretty crowded again which we didn't expect since it was the middle of the day. 


It was time for a wardrobe change to get ready for our special dinner at a signature restaurant. For me that meant putting on a cute dress (from Old Navy last year) and wearing my new Grand and Miraculous headband from Mickey and Mandy.


We had a little time to spare before our dinner reservations at Le Cellier. There is always so much to see and explore at Epcot. I will do a full review on our favorite restaurant Le Cellier soon.


After dinner we did some more walking around and trying some drinks from around the world. This time I remember to bring my new drink cozie that I got from Mickey and Mandy. It was great to have to keep my hand warm while holding a cold drink.


The Seas with Nemo and Friends. I like that it is a nice relaxing ride, there is never a wait, and you end in the Coral Reefs Aquarium. 


We ended the night checking out Space Mountain with the night lights, hearing marching bands, drinking and eating around the world (only a little), and watching Illuminations. This was my least favorite night time entertainment. It was our first time watching it. I would be sad if we dont watch it again or if they replace it with something else. 

Other attractions:
- Grand Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
- Soarin (we got a Fast Pass)

Check back tomorrow for day 3 that includes Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom and a family surprise.

  1. OH Le Cellier is one of my favorite restaurants! While my husband and I have been to Disney solo the one time we managed to get a reservation at Le Cellier happened to be on a family vacation... but we could only get seating for two so my mother in law kindly kept the kids at the hotel for pizza and tv while my hubby and I snuck into a park for a date night (well, date lunch). It was so much fun and the food was amazing.
