I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

Loving your trip report! My DH and I have eaten at the Wave twice. It always seems like it's not very busy, which is great considering the type of restaurant it is.

Thank you! I agree, it is a great restaurant. A few others have suggested that it is like a hidden gem and I agree!

The Grand Floridian is just too beautiful for words.

Breakfast sounds yummy! I'm glad they corrected the egg problem so easily.

I know… blasphemy… He swears that there is some scent in there that he is allergic to. But he's been to see a naturopath for his allergies since then, so I told him that another trip to the GF is in order

The GF Gingerbread House... nothing else like it on property...pretty awesome and the scent coming off of it...

I'm glad that your breakfast at the GFC turned out to be so nice... I think a lot of people forget that it's there... We ate there years ago... I think we'll have to try it again... Sounds like really good service... and a really lovely atmosphere to boot...

It was wonderful. This was the first time that I've had a meal at the GFC, I wouldn't mind trying lunch next time we go. The service was excellent, which really helps you to enjoy it

Day 3 Part 2 - Friday, December 14th, 2012

So we left off after eating at the GFC. Wonderful restaurant, I would definitely eat there again.

We hopped the monorail and went to MK! No matter how many times I go, seeing the MK always overwhelms me with it's magic and beauty. It is something that you can't describe, but I'm sure many of you know the feeling!!

The crowd levels still seemed low everywhere that we went! Score!

It was quite chilly this morning, and as you can see in the photos, the sky was pretty grey. We walked up to the train station and took a few pictures.






There was a single mom and her son up there. She was struggling to take a picture with her and her son, so I offered to take one for her. She was so grateful to have a picture of the two of them because they often travel together and so most of her pictures are just of her son and not of them together. I was glad that I got to help her with that.

Then we headed down Main Street to get our MK on! There was some lovely streetmosphere happening...



We stopped for just a moment to watch and then we continued on our way. A couple of the shops on the way called our names, so we went in for a peek.




I love how there is nobody in this picture below

I tried on a tiara…


Slowly, we got closer to my favourite sight in the world…




I take a million pictures of the castle every trip. I don't know why. It might be an illness lol It is just so beautiful!

See the crowds here… It is a thing of beauty



We stopped for a picture with the M&M topiaries


At this point in our Disney careers, we don't do touring plans or anything. We just go wherever we feel like going at the time. I love this new relaxed pace! We decided to head to Tomorrowland first!


Up Next… More MK!

Thank you I hadn't been up to the top of the train station in a few trips, so I decided that it was definitely happening on this trip! I'm glad that we made it up there.

Yes, it was amazingly low crowds. I planned on doing more updates than just that one, but I ran out of time before I had to go to class. Hopefully tomorrow I will add some more!

Oh my goodness, there are few things greater than Magic Kingdom with light crowds!

Love all the castle pictures! Too bad it was grey out... I hope that doesn't mean rain!!!

Love the low crowds!!!! I always forget to go up to the train station to take a picture, it's a nice perspective!

Hahahaha I think we all have the "Must Take 8000 Pictures of the Castle" illness!
