This was DGD 5 second trip to disney, now big enough for most of the big rides. He thought mine train wasn’t exciting enough. Liked the race cars. But the line I remember the most…when they got off PP…momma, I was flying.
The first night we had gone to Ohana. I must say it’s a bit of a pain having to go through security just to go “next door”, but it is wonderful to be able to walk into the MK without go to and fro with all the barriers that used to there. Getting back to Ohana, food was good, but frankly going to a TS with a one year takes something away from the meal. We did tag team eating. One walked with baby, while others ate then switch. His age was the reason we only did three TS. CP, was good but again one year old with the attention span of a gnat. At CP when I checkin , I asked if DGS 5 was listed as his birthday. Yes, it was. Our table had mickey confetti on it. Usually a sign of a celebration. But no cupcake, no nothing.
The next morning I asked at the resort if his birthday was indeed noted. I was just surprised, nothing was done, not a birthday button at checkin , nothing at Ohana, and nothing at CP. So I was told yes, it was noted. CM said would you like me to send up a balloon and card. Yes, please. We go off on our day. All day I’m thinking he is going to be so surprised. We get back about 8 pm. Open door and there is nothing. No card, No balloon. I went to ask at the front desk. The CM has no answer, he tried to call someone but didn’t get through. I told the CM at this point, we are leaving in the morning and moving to AKL. No balloons allowed. If a balloon had been delivered during the day, 15 hours later it was be half deflated, we would have left it behind. But to get a balloon at 9 at night, it’s still going to look pretty good in the morning. I was not happy about being told it would be done and nothing happened.
Might as well, put the third TS in here,Living seas , not sure if that’s the right name, but the one with the fish tank. Again good food, but mr cranky pants …I ended up walking/rocking him in an empty part of the restaurant. He fell asleep in time for my entree, so I ate with a baby over my shoulder.
Actually, DH, DS and DSIL ate dinner at boma. I watched the boys, They enjoyed it. I went crazy.
So not to do details of ride to ride, but DGS had a great time. DH and I hardly went on rides, We set up FP so they could use our bands to get extra rides with the kids. Plus our DD at home was getting the fourth and fifth FP. A few times I was ready to freak out with my kids. About 6 weeks ahead, I gave them the FP list what we were doing. While we were there, my DS would say Hey about POC or something other ride. Well, I don’t know there is a 55 min wait, it’s 94 outside, I don’t want to wait. But my DD managed to get us FP.
Once they were going on Soaring, so I took DGS 1 to listen to the land. We get up to the front…How many? Just us two. I said everyone else is on Soaring. CM says, well our ride is better anyway. DGS head almost fell off trying to take everything in. Same reaction to the tiki birds.
With DH using a wheelchair, at lion king show, we sat on the ground floor level. DS was chosen to be the wart hog. Kids were thrilled with dada being a warthog.
