Disney Day 2

We slept in until 9 am the next morning after our late night at the Magic Kingdom.  Our original plan was to spend 2 days at MK and our last day at Animal Kingdom.  We decided a few days before we left to add another park ticket day to our arrival day and that was a great decision considering how much we did that first afternoon/night.  For our first full day at MK, we had a lunch reservation at Be Our Guest at 10:50.  Since we got a later start that morning, we pretty much went straight to lunch.

We loved the Wilderness Lodge especially because of the quick and easy boat transportation straight to the Magic Kingdom.  We only had to ride the bus once to get to Animal Kingdom!

 We loved Be Our Guest for lunch! There weren't any characters at lunch, but it counted as a Quick Service dining credit which was great and the ballroom was an exact replica to the movie.  Ellie even ate her ENTIRE meal, so it was worth it to us right there considering she ate white rice at the Chef Mickey's buffet the night before ;).

  Try the grey stuff, it's delicious!

We had a fast pass to meet Ariel and rode her rode and did lots of rides around Fantasy Land that afternoon after lunch.

 Don't you love how they conveniently place gift shops after each and every ride?  This giirl always wanted to stop and "just look!"

We made a stop at the Main Street Confectionery at one point during the day to check out all of the yummy treats.  Decisions, decisions.
 She also had popcorn  ONLY AT DISNEY!

We spotted Lady Tremaine and the Step Sisters while walking around.  We didn't wait to meet them but I did snap a quick picture.

We only had one small mishap our entire trip and that was when we discovered Ellie had laid down her autograph book and pen somewhere along the way.  We frantically ran back and re-traced our steps as best we could, but there was no way we were going to find it.  Luckily, a super sweet lady working in the HUGE Emporium store gave us a new book and pen.  We couldn't believe it!  It didn't replace our autographs, but we kept pushing on and were grateful for her sweetness.  Also grateful we still have all of our pictures!  As we were walking out of the Town Hall building to check the Lost and Found, we just happened upon a tiny line to meet Princess Aurora.  It was like it was meant to be!  She was by far my favorite too.  So sweet, so attentive, so in character!  She took her time with us and carried on the best conversation with Ellie.  It was perfect!!

We also decided on this day to add the Park Hopper Pass option so we could head over to Epcot.  Another great decision!  We loved Epcot and spent a good amount of time there.  We rode SOARIN'. Space Ship Earth, ate a Dole Whip and a Mickey Pretzel, met Snow White and Chip and Dale, much more and had a blast!

We tried and tried to get an appointment at the Bippidi Boppidi Boutique but that proved impossible so we let Ellie have her face painted and she chose the Tinkerbell design.  Once again, ONLY AT DISNEY!  Ha!

We stopped to play some drums and stroll around the World Showcase for a bit.
 There was a flower/garden festival going on at Epcot and the flowers were beautiful all over the park!

Yes, the Dole Whip (or pineapple soft serve in Epcot) definitely lives up to the hype!  Delicious!

We stayed at Epcot as long as we could until we had to hop onto the Monorail to head over the Polynesian for dinner at O'Hana.  The food was so good!!  They serve entirely too much of it, but it was all delicious.  I texted a pic of these wings and dumplings to Don.  He wasn't very happy with me rubbing in all of his favorite foods!

Ellie participated in the coconut races which were fun and she even got a lei.  It was a great meal!
  She started to drag a little bit during this meal, but let's be honest, I think we all were considering we were there for over two hours!  A little long in my opinion, but we did enjoy it and had a great view of the castle and fireworks that night.

It was another wonderful day!
