OK…So we really didn’t go swimming at the MK but for a second there we thought we would!
The whole day was hot and sunny and beautiful. The second we get on the bus to head out to MK the skies opened up and it down poured! Very hard and very fast. My mom was freakin’ out saying how she did not want to get wet but I did have the positive attitude that it was a typical “summer” storm and would pass quickly.
My mom did not believe me :glare:
Before we even head into the park we stop at the gift shop to purchase a bumber-shute (umberlla). She does not see the human size umbrellas and she purchases the $40 golf umbrella!
With our protection from the elements secured we head into the park. Stop to grab some Mickey ears for Tyler (Finally…he always said he didn’t want any and he found some snazzy Toy Story ears that he loved) and head into the park.
It has stopped raining BTW!
We head over to the Plaza Restaurant for our 5:00 dinner reservation.
I don’t know why but I pictured this but I figured this place would be a lot bigger! Anyway…We all wanted to eat light b/c we had the Wishes Dessert Party scheduled for the evening. Tyler got the Grilled Chicken Sticks with salad.
[I]FYI: We did not order dressing on the salad b/c DS does not like dressing but they automatically put on ranch. Strange, but our server said that is how they do it unless you tell them not to. It is not stated on the menu that way. It was not a problem and our server promptly returned with a plain salad.[/I]
I got the Vegetarian Sandwich (just because it sounded good…I am a carnivore) and it was good. The home made chips had a lot of potential BUT they were stale.
My mom asked for the Mickey Turkey Sandwich off of the kids menu and it was not a problem at all she got the tomato soup with the meal and it was fine.
After dinner we head back out to the park and go directly to Buzz SRS. This is Ty’s favorate ride and we all had a “blast” :laugh: we ended up going on this ride 6 times over the course of the trip!
We wander through most of Fantasy Land and do those rides then Ty and DM start getting tired so we head over close to the Tomorrowland Noodle Station to wait for our dessert buffet. We had about a 1/2 hour wait till we checked in. I tucked both of them in a chair with an ice cold breverage while I ran over to Stitch’s Great Escape. I had never been on before and really wanted to try. (I LOVED LOVED LOVED Ailen Encounted back in the day)
Now as I want to continue on with my positive trip with no negatives I will not tell you how I felt that this is the worst ride in all of Disney World. No… it is the worst ride in all of the world! What a waste. If they felt this ride was kid friendly they are crazy. Kids were screaming their heads off!..But I won’t talk about that.
After Stitch we check-in early for the dessert buffet. The line looked really long to check in but they were so organized and it moved really fast. We were seated quickly and made a bee-line to the drinks. It was so hot and we were so thirsty. We had raspberry lemonade and it was really good.
I also pictured this buffet to be a lot larger but it was good and the desserts were awesome.
When we finally sit down to eat DM and DS just poop out. We eat about half of the plates we made for ourselves and no one is talking. No one is moving. I feel as if I am talking to myself. So I get up and start taking pictures. Finally my mom is so annoyed and says “You know…if you’ve seen one firework you’ve seen them all”
So I say “Is that your subtle way of saying you want to leave”
Me: Tyler, what do you think?
DS: Get me outta here!
Oh well, no Wishes that night. So basically we had one plate of OVERPRICED desserts with no Fireworks Spectacular This was the one thing that I was looking forward to most BUT I have seen Wishes before as well as the fact that I do have my own home movie of it so I relented and we left.
We head out of the park and we were on a bus in no time back to POP to crash for the evening.
Up next: Day 2: Cape May Cafe Breakfast, Hollywood Studios and The Boardwalk.
