Day 2 Part 2... more of the MK!

Ok...so where did I leave off??? Ah yes... we had just headed into frontierland! So I had decided that since I was going to head back here for the evening extra magic hours with Evan and also attend the Very Merry Christmas Party with Sarah, I wouldn't do any of the rides that my mom can't do and waste precious time at the park! We skipped over Thunder and Splash and headed towards those lovable Country Bears.

On the way we saw the tail end of Woody's Cowboy Camp or whatever it's called..



Oh...and have I mentioned that we've walked on to EVERY single ride so far?! NO WAIT....AT ALL!! yayyyy!!!

So I love the Country Bears...I really do. Even though it needs a serious makeover and it's just old and the same old show every year (I'm a little mad they didn't have the Christmas Country Bears this year! BOO!!!) so here's a little glimpse...



After the Bears we realized we finished up with frontierland (at least with everything we wanted to see!) so headed towards Liberty Square. The smell of pizza caught our noses and since we weren't STARVING and had an early dinner at 4:30, we split a pizza just to hold us over. Pizza wasn't too bad! Definitely better than Dominoes!



Glanced over at the Haunted Mansion and people were just walking right in so off we went! Ohhhhhh sooooo excited to see the changes!



OK...I LOVED the changes!! LOVE LOVE LOVED them! The new bride room with the headless husbands was awesome, as were the upside down staircases. When you're in the stretching room definitely hang out in there until everyone leaves and listen... you'll hear all whispering voices telling you to 'getttt ouuuuutttttt!!!!', etc. Definitely cool! I could ride this all day!

After we got out, my mom spotted someone eating the Mickey ice cream bars so we decided to continue gorging ourselves and picked up an ice cream bar for mom (no pic..sorry!) and my all time favorite... a cookies n' cream Mickey sandwich!!! mmmm!! sorry... I had to take a bite before taking a pic...it was calling my name!



Sat over by Hall of Presidents to gobble up the ice cream and yet again, must have timed it perfectly 'cause there was a show about to start just as we finished up!



Now ever since I was a kid I was always pretty bored with the Presidents. Only recently I've actually been able to sit through it without falling asleep! Today wasn't too bad, I really didn't remember a whole LOT of it so it was nice to see it again! I think mom might have taken a little nap though!

After Presidents we wandered over to fantasyland and the back of the castle, which I really don't think I've EVER taken photos of before?!





After a little photoshoot we headed over to Snow White's Scary Adventure. My mom was like 'Why is it called scary?! Should I not go on it?!' Ha...after reassuring her she'll be fine we jumped on after about a 15 minute wait.

Got off the ride and as I was snapping away some more pics of the castle I saw over in the corner Cinderella's wicked stepmother and stepsisters! RUNN!!!!!! Hurrryyyy before they leaveeeeee!!!!!



They were AWESOME!! The wicked stepmother (who I later found out her name is Lady Tremaine?! seriously? you learn something new every day!) was great with the kids...snapping at them and everything. When we got up there she was like 'Do you want a picture?! Well get over here now then!'. I tried to give my best mean face but I couldn't hold in the smile.

After our meet n' greet we decided to hold off on the rest of the rides since the lines were really long and just wander around and finish the rest of the park the next time we were there. As we headed towards Main Street we saw a tiny piece of the parade and again...decided to watch it again later (which we never did! oh well... I'm not a HUGE parade person anyways!)



Jumped into the first store on Main St and just started browsing... oh! can someone please tell me the whole deal with Crocs!? I tried them on and really? Wasn't that much of a fan! But they do make pretty Christmas wreaths! hahaha!



Stopped by Roy and Minnie for a quick hello..



Oh! If you notice in the pic..there's no big Christmas tree behind Roy!! When we came back the next time to the MK the tree was in it's right place. Apparently they moved it to tape the Christmas parade!

We still had some time before our dinner reservation at Tony's so we continued to browse a little more and look who we ran into...the Dapper Dan's!!!



They were all so nice! There weren't too many people in the store when they were there so they came over and were talking to us for a bit. I had borrowed my fathers pretty nifty camera for the trip (thanks dad!!!) and one of the Dan's came over and was asking me about it.

Oh...and does anyone have $37,500 laying around they want to give me? Cause I want to buy this castle... WOWWWW!



Almost time for dinner finally so we started towards Tony's and snapped some pics of the decorations on Main Street...





Checked into Tony's a few mins early and bummed around for a bit until our table was called. ok ok....Who's ready for some food porn!?!? WOOHOOO!!!!! Oh... so I might be a little harsh on this food report section... my father is Italian and we're all preeettttyyyyy picky about the Italian food we eat! My mom on the other hand is Greek soooo... she's really not that picky when it comes to Italian food! hahahaha!!

First our waiter brought out the sun dried tomato, cheese, and pine nut (?) dip which I LOVED and ate almost all of...sorry..forgot to take a pic!!

Mom then started out with the spinach and artichoke dip... (is that Italian?! lo)



She realllly liked it and couldn't get enough of it. I tried it and honestly? Wasn't that much of a fan!! There wasn't really any spinach in it and the cheese didn't have much flavor! It tasted like it was mostly heavy cream or something instead. So much for the three cheese blend they talked about on the menu!

I started off with the tomato and fresh mozzarella salad...yummy!



I totally wasn't expecting grape tomatoes but it was good! The cheese was decent and the dressing and balsamic drizzle made it pretty darn tasty! I left the poor onions behind though.

For an entree mom ordered the eggplant rotini which she again liked a lot..



(if you read my day 1 report... you'd know she was a picky eater so I was thankful she liked all this stuff! score!)
If you're wondering where all the sauce on the pasta is? I wondered the same thing so I ordered a size of marinara so I can pick at her pasta. I don't like eggplant so I can't tell you how it was! I think the pasta was a TAD overcooked but I like mine perfectly al dente. That's the Italian food snob in me coming out. The sauce wasn't bad though! It passed my test!

Onto my meal.... I ordered the chicken marsala..



Totally didn't expect it to come out this way either but that didn't deter me from devouring the chicken. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the sauce had some nice flavor. I just wish they had cooked the chicken in the sauce to give it that extra kick. The mashed potatoes on the other hand were downright GROSS. They were thick and heavy and pastey. Bleh! And they had no flavor. I took one or two bites and stopped trying to like them. I also didn't really eat the asparagus so I was a little hungry (how? I don't know) still and picked at mom's pasta.

And now? drumroll please...... DESSERT! woohoooo! I've been eyeing the pistachio creme brulee on the menu since before we got to Florida so I was excited to try it. And I loved it! It wasn't too pistachio-ish and was just downright yummy.



Mom had chocolate and cinnamon gelato (2 separate flavors) and she LOVED the chocolate and I LOVED the cinnamon! Totally forgot to take a pic of the gelato (either that or I just didn't want to waste time not eating my creme brulee) but I think I got a pic of it the 2nd time we ate at Tony's! Ohh..and I had a yummy cappuccino!

We finished up dinner and headed out back to Main St and saw that the train station was empty so we headed up there to grab a seat for the castle lighting. There were a few other people up there but we pretty much had it all to ourselves.

I had to do a little maneuvering around the huge flag pole in the middle of the street but I was able to snap a few decent shots of the castle. Although we didn't get to really see the show before the lighting, we heard it all..





TADA!!!! All lit up and pretty!!



The castle with the annoying flag pole in the way...



hmm...I think I hit my limit again!!! On to part 3!!!

Day 2 Part 3... wrapping up our first MK day!

Ok...so back to our regularly scheduled programming...

We weren't that tired so we headed over to tomorrowland to see what we can jump on without a wait. And on the way couldn't help but snap more pics of the awesome castle..



I knew Carousel of Progress wouldn't have a wait so we started in that direction. Right at the entrance I saw Buzz so we jumped in line and were luckily the last ones to get to see him.



Quickly grabbed a pic with him and then into Carousel we went. I honestly still like this attraction too. I will say though I enjoyed the other song they used 'Now is the time...now is the best time!' It's the song I grew up with on the ride and although I KNOW it's not the original...it's still the one I like the best! But geez! It's time to update this thing!



Headed to the TTA next and just relaxed for a little bit and enjoyed our tour of tomorrowland. Tried to take pics of space mountain but that failed miserably! Pretty sure we decided to call it a night after TTA (I couldn't stop calling it the Wedway People Mover though!) and yet again...had to stop by Cosmic Rays for some more pics of the castle...



On the way back to the hotel (yet again...not a long wait for a bus!) I had been texting my friend Evan who was at Epcot that day and we decided to meet up in the lobby of Pop to head back over to the MK for evening extra magic hours until 1am.

Back at the Magic Kingdom I made Evan stop for yet some MORE pics of the castle..



The park was honestly already empty by the time we got in around 10:30pm so we headed straight to the Haunted Mansion..

Is the room ACTUALLY stretching????



We were both a little hungry so we stopped over at Pecos Bill's for some chili cheese fries and to discuss our gameplan for the rest of the night. Now.... on the bus we had decided that we would do Splash last since we MIGHT get wet. Umm...small problem...we were already in frontierland so THAT idea went out the window. We discussed and decided to go on it first instead of last. Why you ask? Well our reasoning was that the past like 10 times EACH that we've ridden the ride, neither of us have gotten wet... AT ALLLLL! So chances are, our 11th time riding Splash would yet again leave us high and dry...

Or so we thought.

We first jumped on Thunder Mountain and again...no wait and got in the back of the train. Yayyyy! I still love this ride! (no pics cause umm....I forgot I think!)

We then headed to Splash....
We jumped on with no wait and got in the front seat without even asking for it. Warning bells right there should have went off but nope! The 2nd little dip came and went and I thought all was well until the water around us started settling. Out of NOWHERE I see this HUGE wave of water come right over the side of my side of the boat and RIGHT INTO MY LAP! yes... no joke. I just sat there with my mouth open as the water seeped into every pore of my body and Evan just laughed at me. Secretly I was praying to the Splash Mountain water Gods that he'd pay for laughing at me. and woot! my prayers were answered! The big drop was finally approaching and at the very bottom we suddenly both decided to duck hoping the water would somehow fly over us. Well instead all that ended up happening was us banging foreheads, jumping back up and getting an even bigger wave of water in both our faces. UGH!!!!



Probably the most unflattering picture of both of us but it demonstrates just how soaked we got.

Did I mention that this night was one of the COLDEST of the trip? And all I was wearing was a tank top and no sweatshirt!? I was FREEEEZING the rest of the day! And WHYYYYY does the MK not have those air hand dryers in the bathroom?! At least by Splash!? That would have solved allll my problems. Toilet paper and paper hand towels just don't do the trick! We were tempted to go into the store, use a towel, and quietly replace it on the rack!

In between shivers, we headed over to Pirates for a quick ride...and yayyyy more Jack Sparrow!



Next up was tomorrowland! I think this is where we jumped in line for Buzz Lightyear... I think. haha...no pics but I know it was around here somewhere! Evan definitely kicked my butt...BUT the guy in front of us killed us both and got a score of 999,999!! no joke!! thats CRAZY! my poor thumb hurt too much from pressing the trigger! hahaha!

I hadn't done the Monsters Inc Laugh Floor yet so we got in line for that next. Now...remember that everything I owned was soaking wet? Well all would have been ok... my little camera I had with me was actually waterproof (thank GOD I didn't bring my fathers camera). My wallet was soaked, my checkbook dripping, everything! I seriously don't understand HOW the inside of my bag was so wet! Well after the ride I had put my cell phone in my back pocket. On line for Monsters, it started vibrating so I took it out to check who was calling. And NO ONE! seriously. nothing. And it wouldn't STOP vibrating! I showed it to Evan who suggested just turning it off. I did and? it was STILL vibrating even though it was off! Stupid Splash Mountatin shorted out my cell phone!! AHH!!! So I took the battery out of it hoping it would dry and continue working and was already freaking out on what I would do if my phone was totally dead on only the 2nd day of my trip! I kept attempting to put the battery back in but it was useless. The vibrating wouldn't stop. boooooo!!!!

OK...enough babbling about the phone... we headed into the comedy show and I thought it was really cute! They picked on this one poor guy sooo much and it was hilarious. He was luckily a good sport about it.

After the show was over (and after attempting to fix my phone which didn't work) we headed over to Space Mt. Now we had always heard that one side was better than the other and with no line AT ALLLLL.... we decided to put it to the test!! First we went on the right side and made sure to sit all the way in the back. Jumped off and ran to the left side and sat again all the way in the back. And honestly? Both sides are EXACTLY the same. Yup! They are!

Oh! Side note...popped the battery back in my phone after our 2nd trip on Space and it had stopped vibrating!! WOOT! it works again! strange!

We both agreed we wouldn't do Stich's Great Escape. We HATE that ride. Alien Encounter was at least decent and SCARY! Stich just sucks and I hate the smell of corndogs in my face. Bleh!

Astro Orbiter was also off our list b/c it just had way too long of a line. I don't understand how NOTHING had a line except Orbiter. weird!

Ok....by now it was a little past midnight and I ran out of pics for the official Day 2! I think I have 1 or 2 after midnight that I didn't upload yet so those will go into Day 3's report!

Oh, my Jersey friend, I am LOVING your pix!!

I notice that mom's blue and white sweater looks very familiar. Would that, by chance be the same Talbots sweater that I love so much? If so, great taste, if not, great taste anyway!

OK, I just have to say it here. Disney "pizza" is NOT real pizza!! And you, from Jersey, you should know from pizza! Now, you want REAL pizza, you go to the 'burg, in Trenton, for some ultra thin crust "tomato pie", or to any of the hundreds of mom & pop pizza joints in Monmouth County for a good old plain pie. THAT, my friend is pizza!!

The Mickey cookies and cream sandwich was a huge hit with my DS10. I think he'd have lived on them, given a chance!

I LOVED the pic of the Crocs wreath!! LOL, too cute! And I love my crocs--all 6 pair! I wasn't loving them at first, but they grow on you and now I live in mine.

That mozzarella and tomato salad looked YUMMY! Never saw it with grape tomatoes before either, but with the little balls of mozzarella, it works! I'll have to try that, since this time of year the only decent tomatoes are the grape tomatoes!

Keep up the great work!

Thank you! Thank you! And yes..... moms sweater IS from Talbots... and if you keep up with the trip report, you'll see probably every other shirt she wears will be from there too! hahaha! she's a little crazy about it!

Ohhhhhh!!! I definitely will NEVER EVER EVER put Disney pizza in the same category as good ol NY/NJ pizza! mmmmmmmmm!!!!! I had some today for lunch b/c I was in withdrawal all last week! SO GOOD! It doesn't help much that my uncle owns a pizzeria down the street from me and it was voted one of the best pies in Bergen county! MMMMM!!!! I could go for some more right now!

Your son has great taste too! I could definitely live on those Mickey ice cream sandwiches... and good pizza of course!

Oh boy... are you suggesting that I might actually have to try a pair of these crocs for a day?!

Ohhhhh...GOOD POINT about the grape tomatoes being the only good tomatoes this season! I might have to try it at home too. The balsamic drizzle definitely made the dish!

Dude, your pictures are AMAZING! I seriously have to take photography lessons from you. All of my lit-up-Castle pictures came out so blurry. (I actually just saved one of yours to my desktop cause it was so gorgeous!)

It sounds like you had so much fun, and hit all of my favorite rides, too!

And yeah, I was totally about to call you out on the thumbs up for Disney pizza, Jersey girl! Between your hood and mine (Brooklyn) we've got the best pizza this side of Naples. But it looks like you already know that!

Great update!!

Those omelets and biscuits look yummy...

Everyone complains about that coffee so much and supposedly Disney lurks on here, you think someone would get the message and try a new brand

Love the pic of you and the guy playing Pirates..that was too funny


I too have never seen any of the POTC Movies.....So, I had no idea who Mack was. So, when I saw you say Mack, I thought you were joking and calling Jack that, as everyone says He is hot, and thought you were saying he was the Mack, like a MACK DADDY

Great character pics. Sounds like you are doing great getting on all the rides....

We had never been on the Jungle cruise before, never really had any interest in it..We went on it this year on a whim and OMG, that is now one of my fav rides...our skipper was hilarious

I forgot..I LOVED that pic of Mack close up in the camera......

Okay, on to read the next update

Thanks!! Yeah, I definitely LOVE this camera! I was guarding it with my life when i was down there. I'm kind of sad I have to give it back to him tomorrow when I see him! Think he'll notice if I 'forget'? hehehehe

Thanks katie! You should have seen the AMOUNT of photos I deleted though! it took hundreds more horribly blurry pics to actually get a few that were decent!

Ohhh...and don't worry about the pizza thing... I will NEVER say that was good pizza! It tasted good...but I don't consider it pizza! Just like Dominoes isn't pizza... it's just dominoes

I have not been on Country Bear in ages...I hear it is really outdate, but I still wanna see
That Mickey Ice Cream Bar looks yummy
WOW...That castle is amazing....I hope they do that again. I would love to see it sometime
I have beem looking at your mom thinking, gosh, she looks someone....
So after racking my brain for a little bit, she reminds me of Marilu Henner..... I sweae there is another actress too, that she looks more like, but I am drawing a blank at the moment
Ohhh i was SO excited to see Lady Termaine! She was awesome! I wanted to keep messing around with her..haha!

I hear they got a really great response about the castle so hopefully they will keep doing it every year!

Hmm...now I'll have to go google for pics of Marilu Henner! I know the name and I know I've seen her before but I'm drawing a blank at the moment!

I have been off the boards for a bit and am SOOO happy to come back and get to read your report!

It looks like your first 2 days were a BLAST.

I am drooling over all your food. I would LOVE to try that Pistaciao brulee. Also that chocolate nut torte that your mom had looks AMAZING!

How awsome you got to walk on most of your rides. Your nighttime castle pictures are WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!! I am so jealous that you got to go at Christmas time. I can't wait to read more!
