That stinks there was no room at the inn (oh wait, that's a different holiday) for y'all and you had pack up and wait. This is part of the reason I don't like resort hopping. At least, if you are so inclined, you can call bell services and they'll handle the luggage transfer for you. I'm generally not inclined in that direction, but am glad to know I could do it if I so desired.

We really missed y'all the night before at the Lights, but you gotta take care of that ankle lady so we can have a TR with a great title like "Wheels? I Don't Need No Stinkin' Wheels. Scooter Mom Walks the World". I do think you should get on for Jan. though. Cold air and all that walking don't sound like a good combo to me. And that concludes the unsolicited medical advice portion of this post.

We went for a.m. EMH at MK on Thanksgiving, and let me tell you, the only time I've seen more people waiting to get in the MK was on the 40th anniversary. Holy cow, it was packed, and ended up being pretty much a waste of time. I don't know what they were doing over at Space, but it was at total CF trying to get in the place, and then they didn't open Frontierland for EMH, which was our whole purpose in going to EMH-hitting the Mountains. We'd done pretty much everything else we wanted to do earlier in the week. We shoulda gone back over to FLE and gone to ETwB. Live and learn.

Can't wait to read about your b'fast since we didn't really get to talk about it. I hope you had a nice Aurora. Both princess meals we've done she was kind of a snooty royal- signed, smiled and moved on. Mulan and Jasmine made up for it though. They were so wonderful the time we went. All this princess talk makes me want to book it again.

Its neat that they have virtual versions of a lot of the rides in DisneyQuest. I've read about Sids Create-a-Toy and I always thought it would be like Build-a-Bear, but it didn't look like that from the photo's.

I love your DD's hat that she is wearing in EPCOT, so cute!

I though about getting one, but the point and shoot does what I need it to do. AND I can keep in my pocket.

Can't wait to hear about your breakfast (we've only done lunch there).

Just make her wait while you go. It's not like there is ever a long line. If we ever see you there, you can go with us. How can you not like Figment ?? It makes no sense.

Akershus ADR coming up !!

I had a point and shoot like that and it did take nice pics. Unfortunately I was taking pics of my grandsons baseball game and keeping score and trying to stay dry and warm as Sandy was approaching - and something had to give. I dropped it on the extended lens and no more camera. I like having the bigger cameras because they are around my neck and harder to drop.

I told DH we could do that, but he didn't want to bother so we packed everything up and left it in the car. I don't know that it was safer .......

I will most likely rent another scooter in January since it still hurts pretty bad to walk short distances - so I can't even fathom being able to do long distances

We missed ETwB this time too. DD and I plan to do it in January. I don't understand the fact that they don't open Frontierland for EMH. It makes no sense.

Character interaction was good. DD can be kinda shy with them, it is hard for them to draw her out. All she wants is a picture and an autograph anyway.

Yes, that create a toy thing looked weird. Not warm and fuzzy like Build a Bear.

DD loves her Pluto hat !!

Day 2 – Part 2

After Figment - DD traded some vinylmations. We had this one.





She got this one.



After that, we headed towards Norway and our breakfast with the princesses. DD was very excited about it.















So we got there and checked in and were called right away.



DD had her picture taken with Belle.



I didn’t realize that her hat was covering her face. Thankfully, the reservation comes with a complimentary photo.



We were seated right by the buffet which was good for me since I couldn’t walk very well at all.

Some restaurant photos.





We got some pastries.



Starting from the bagel clockwise, I had a cinnamon roll, cherry Danish, ligonberry muffin, chocolate croissant thingy and in the middle and apple turnover.

I didn’t eat all of these, but more or less had a bite or two of each. I did finish the muffin and cherry Danish since they were the best ones. All of the others we just OK.

Right away, our waitress brought our hot plate of “all you care to enjoy”



Clockwise from the eggs, bacon, sausage and potato casserole.

All of this was good. Even the bacon was was thicker and better than normal Disney bacon. DD really loved it. And these were the best eggs we have ever had a Disney. Cooked perfectly for once.

Then the princesses started coming. Aurora was first.





Then Jasmine





Jasmine was our best interaction from this day. We had a conversation about Rajah and what he does all day.

Then Snow White



Then Ariel. DD was excited to meet her since she had never done so before.





And then we were done. We very much enjoyed our breakfast. DH really liked it as well. He loves a big breakfast. Service was good and character interaction was great. We would definitely do this again.

Great pictures with the princesses (I don't know what it is about "the" Snow Whites....but they look scary to me.

Breakfast bacon that is good???? WOW! I think we'll skip the breakfast as I don't like scrambled eggs and it would be kind of a waste cost wise for us.

The restaurant is beautiful though.

Hahaha - I agree about the princesses. I think they try to teach them to open their eyes wide so they don't blink or something. Then they end up looking spooky.

Yes, the bacon seemed more like real bacon and not like that precooked Disney bacon they usually serve.

It was really good. We would do it again. Even DS liked it and he was like "oh brother" over having breakfast with the princesses.

She loves that Pluto hat and wore it the whole trip. So she either has the hat on ... or hat head. And that is OK.

Akershus is such a fun place, and SO pretty. It looks like they replaced Cinderella with Jasmine! Interesting...

What a great breakfast. You mean your bacon wasn't Disney bacon? Score! Your DDs hat is so cute.

I love Epcot's Christmas tree. It's so festive!

It wasn't that nasty precooked stuff they usually serve. I am seriously saying it was real bacon. Or it sure seemed like it was !!

Thanks !! DD loves her Pluto hat !!
