Day 2 - Saturday - Our day started at Pirate’s Adventure. My DD had a blast getting all done up like a pirate. She especially enjoyed the pirate’s oath. It really is a fun experience, even for girlie girls. Afterwards, we had to ride PofC, of course. We then rode a few other rides and hopped on the monorail for breakfast/lunch at O’Hana’s. As we were waiting on our table, my DD was bumped and she dropped her pink little bag from Pirates (with her black nail polish in, face stickers and lipstick). I immediately smelled fingernail polish and sure enough, the black nail polish had broken - everything was ruined. We had a few tears - no true meltdown - and headed in for our breakfast. The food was good. The breakfast potatoes are especially good!! We really enjoyed the characters. Stitch had missed our table and I let our waitress know - not a big deal as I know they are very good at making sure you see all characters. Well, when Stitch came back, he made quite a show about being sorry. My DD really giggled!!
After breakfast, we decided to head back to the hotel for a quick swim as it was really hot. We ended up spending the rest of the day at the pool. My DD loved the slide. They had a hula hoop contest, dancing, musical blocks, etc. as a pool party in the afternoon. It was alot of fun and a good way to spend a very hot and humid afternoon.
Next on our agenda was our first trip to the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. We sat a high table at the back on the first floor. We were able to see everything really well. I loved the sangria that came with our meal!! The show was fun and my DD really got a kick out of it. I really enjoyed it too!!
When we came out of the show, she saw a horse and carriage and asked if we could take a ride. I splurged and we signed up for the 8 spot! We walked around Ft. Wilderness and saw the horses, including Khan - the horse that carries the headless horseman in the parade. It was really cool.
We really enjoyed our carriage ride. Our driver played Disney music and asked my DD which movies the songs were from. She did really well and knew almost all of them, including some of the classics!! It was a relaxing way to spend the evening and learn about Ft. Wilderness. Next trip, I would really like to spend more time there. It looked like a park unto itself!
Then, we got in line for the boat ride back to Contemporary. As we were in line, it started to sprinkle, then it started to pour. By the time the boat got there, it was a full blown storm. The boat was still running so we got on. We had to keep our eyes closed and heads down as it was raining so hard it hurt your eyes. When we finally got to the Contemporary (felt like a 30 minute trip), we were soaked through to the bone. We took hot showers and crashed quite quickly. Here are a few pics from Day 2.
